Whether customers were

looking for new bedroom

fur-niture or a comfortable

bark-alounger, Ethan Allen

of Orland Park offered the

perfect shopping experience

for animal-lovers during

Dogs & Décor.

The Sept. 19 event featured

information on petfriendly

to witness artist Scott Kenyon

paint a portrait of a local

dog. On top of all that,

attendees were able to meet

some adorable dogs from

dog initiative which the

event supported.

“We just think it’s such

of the Kare 9 program. “They

stand for comforting people

in times of need. Dogs make

everyone’s lives better and

partnership for us.”

to Dogs & Décor to spread

the word about their mission

to bring comfort to people

who have suffered a tragedy,

are recovering in hospitals

or anyone who has invited

them to bring cheer to those

in need of support.

“People who love dogs

take great comfort in having

dogs around,” Morrison

explained. “There’s also a

physiological and medical

component. It’s proven that

when you pet a dog your

heart-rate goes down, your

blood pressure decreases

and that chemical oxytocin,

that makes you feel better,

increases. It does make a

person feel better when they

have a dog nearby.”

Village of Orland Park Board of Trustees

Consultant: ‘Orland Park could become a thriving sports hub’

Feasibility of new

athletic facility, more

discussed

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

Village of Orland Park

Board of Trustees members

didn’t just go through another

walk in the park on Sept.

17. They may down the line

vote to build a new park for

sports after listening to a

report on possible improvements

to John Humphrey

Complex and the feasibility

of developing a new athletic

facility.

D.J. Wabick, of Kreshmore

Group — the consultant

the Village contracted

with to analyze three of Orland

Park’s existing sports

facilities, and to investigate

the economic impact and

market demand for construction

of a new athletic complex

— delivered the report

to the board members.

Kreshmore focused on

four factors at Centennial

Park, Cachey Park and John

Humphrey Complex to see

what upgrades and merits

there were to renovating and

expanding these facilities

with a $500,000 budget in

place. The factors were: the

current quality of the facilities;

the current residential

rental policies; the current

usage rates; and the current

footprint at each facility.

Seeking tournaments

“With those four points in

mind, all three agreed upon

complexes are in need of

facility upgrades,” Wabick

said. “Both Centennial and

Humphrey need fencing replaced;

backstops upgraded

on their baseball and softball

fields; and all three facilities

are in need of playing surface

upgrades.”

Wabick said the current

residential rental and scheduling

policy “puts serious

constraints on the ability for

the Village to bring in thirdparty

events with the goal

of creating outside spending

within the Village.

“Third-party organizations,

especially in the peak

of a season, will pay top dollar

for sole facility usage on

a given weekend, which will

be between $80-$150 per

game slot, depending on the

quality of the facility.”

In terms of footprint, Wabick

said Centennial was designed

with a resident-first

mindset, as evidenced by the

walking paths, separation of

fields and a water park. Centennial

also has “drastically

sloped fields,” which he said

would take a lot of money to

correct.

Wabick said Cachey Park

does, however, have the

space needed to make the

upgrades and turn it into a

desired facility. But he said

the current footprint “is not

conducive for a high-traffic

facility.”

Wabick said of the three

facilities analyzed, John

Humphrey Complex was the

one with the most “sportsfirst”

footprint, with its design

layout being conducive

to hosting athletic events.

That included easy access to

amenities, such as concessions

and restrooms.

Humprhey facelift could

benefit Village

Ultimately, the Kreshmore

Group concluded that

all $500,000 would be best

suited to be put toward upgrading

John Humphrey

Complex. Some of these upgrades,

per Wabick and the

report (which was provided

on the Village’s website), included:

refurbishing fields 2

and 4 to “adult-sized fields,”

which Wabick said were

in high-demand by tournament

organizers; adding

net backstops to fields 1-4;

re-configuring fields 1 and

6 to accommodate 70-foot

baselines; eliminating Field

5; adding spectator netting

and improving new mounds,

pegs and other equipment;

and extending outfield fencing.

The Kreshmore Group

recommended the Village

keep certain weekends open

in order to attract larger tournaments

to use the facility.

Assistant Village Manager

John Keating brought

up how some of the current

field conditions in the Village

impacted the ability for

tournaments.

“A perfect example was

this weekend there was a

large tournament at Centennial,

and half of the other

part of the tournament was

based out of town — only

because they weren’t satisfied

with the field conditions

at John Humphrey,” Keating

said. “That is something that

we want to bring back to Orland

and to our facility, because

the direct and indirect

spending for a field rental for

the entire weekend is significant

— and we did not capture

[it].”

Trustee Patricia Gira said

she believes the priority

needs to remain on Orland

Park residents.

The John Humphrey Complex could get a huge overhaul in order to entice Midwest and

national sports tournaments to come to Orland Park. JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

“[Kreshmore] discussed

the fee schedules, and that

would take a lot of discussion,

because I know it took

a lot of time to get it where

it’s at,” Gira said. “Clearly,

our residents have priority.

Outside tournaments and

working with the different

groups is possible to bring

them in, but not to the detriment

of our residents.”

Mayor Keith Pekau said

he saw an opportunity with

the proposed improvements

to the John Humphrey Complex

as it related to tournaments.

“I can speak to playing in

men’s softball tournaments,”

he said. “On six fields like

this, you can run a 60-team

tournament over the weekend

— which is a lot of people

coming in. Those tournaments

go into October.

There is some opportunity

to start picking up some of

these and becoming somewhat

of a little destination.”

A new facility?

In regard to a new athletic

facility, a multi-sport complex

could be feasible on an

estimated 75 acres of available

land in the village.

Wabick said youth sports

is a multibillion dollar industry

and the Chicago area

is in a desirable geographic

region in the Midwest.

“There is little doubt that

Orland Park could become a

thriving sports hub,” Wabick

said.

The recommendation

from Kreshmore was to develop

an outdoor, eight-field

complex — all fields having

artificial turf — costing approximately

$8.5 million,

with a contingency of approximately

$850,000.

According to the report

the consultant provided,

Round it Up

A brief recap of action from the Sept. 17 meeting of

the Village of Orland Park Board of Trustees

• At the start of the meeting, Mayor Keith Pekau

recognized Sandburg senior students Carson Krol and

Aristotle Vainikos for achieving perfect 36 scores on

the ACT.

• A public hearing was held on the possible annexation

agreement of a property located at 10851 W. 167th St.

in unincorporated Cook County. The 11-acre property

would be used to construct a 21-lot subdivision with 38

duplexes. No one from the public commented on the

project.

• Board members voted 7-0 to approve the purchase

of a 2019 Ford Utility Police Interceptor from Currie

Motors of Frankfort in an amount not to exceed

$27,915. This was recommended to the board

because in August, the police department received an

award valued at $30,000 to cover the cost of up-fitting

new equipment on the inside of a police car.

Kreshmore Group estimated

that a possible Orland Park

facility could generate approximately

$9.9 million annually

in indirect economic

spending.

Trustee James Dodge said

this idea comes on the heels

of the economy moving toward

less in-store retail and

more entertainment uses.

“When this idea [of developing

a new athletic complex]

came up, it seemed

like a pretty good idea for us

as an organization to look at

something like [this] to go

after the tournament business,”

Dodge said. “It just

seems to me that we’re close

to two major highways,

well located and we’ve got

a lot going on in Orland for

these families to do between

games during the tournament

for the entire weekend

… and it just felt like we had

a lot of natural advantages.”

Friends, family rally around youth with rare blood disorder

Patrick Z. McGavin

Freelance Reporter

As a nurse, Mandy Granat

has devoted her professional

life to mitigating pain and

discomfort of those placed

in her care.

Most difficult of all was

being confronted by medical

uncertainty regarding her

own son, Luke.

Luke, now 11, has always

been a naturally buoyant

child with an easy and outgoing

personality. When he

was 8 years old, Luke started

to exhibit symptoms, such as

abdominal pain and nausea,

that confounded doctors, as

extensive hospitalizations

and tests failed to identify

the underlying causes.

“We spent about a year

having him be misdiagnosed,”

Mandy said. “They

thought it was allergic reactions.

As a nurse, it made

sense at the time. When he

had the abdominal pain, he

spent five days at Hope Children’s

Hospital and the tests

came back normal.”

The severity of the reactions

intensified. After a series

of complex blood tests,

doctors discovered that Luke

suffers from a rare genetic

blood disorder called hereditary

angioedema.

“I never even heard of it,”

Mandy said.

On average, only about

one in 10,000-50,000 people

suffer from HAE. A person’s

C1-inhibitor protein regulates

blood-based system

that fight disease, inflammation

and buildup.

“He’s missing the [CI-inhibitor]

protein in his blood

that his body doesn’t make,

or is deficient,” Mandy explained.

The family lives in Orland

Park. Luke is a sixth-grader

at Central Middle School in

Tinley Park. Mandy works

at the Silver Cross Hospital

emergency room in Homer

Glen. Luke’s father, Steve,

is the assistant principal at

Tinley Park High School.

Luke has a sister, Anna, who

is in eighth grade at Central.

His older brother, Stevie, is a

freshman at Andrew.

In May, Mandy and Luke

traveled to Vienna, Austria,

for five days to attend a patient

and doctor symposium.

“We met kids from all over

the world, and we learned

that many don’t have the

medication in those countries,”

Mandy said. “That

was a humbling experience

because we see how lucky

we are to have access to the

medication.”

Luke also is a member of

the Youth Leadership Council

for the US Hereditary

Angioedem Association. In

July, he appeared at Capitol

Hill to advocate for increased

federal funding for

the disease.

The family also has sought

to raise awareness closer

to home. In the summer of

2017, the family held a 5K

run in Danada Forest Preserve

in Wheaton.

The initial affair proved

the jumping-off point. In

the first week of August, the

family held another event.

Mobilizing Facebook and

other social media to shape

word of mouth around Orland

Park and Tinley Park,

the number jumped from 30

last year to 130 this year.

“He needs the support of

his friends more than anything

at this stage,” Mandy

said. “The event made him

feel so good.”

The support was overwhelming

for Luke.

“It meant a lot to me because

it’s important to know

they care about me and want

to help me get through this,”

he said.

Luke is bright and naturally

curious.

Soccer and medicine are a big part of 11-year-old Luke Granat’s life, as he holds a kit

containing needles and medicine to physically keep him going, and a soccer ball, which

emotionally keeps him going. JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

Several friends and teammates from Orland Park and Tinley Park participated in a 5K run

to support Luke Granat. PHOTO SUBMITTED

“I like to play with and

build LEGOs, the Avengers,

Jurassic World and anything

with a built-in mythical

[theme],” he said.

Luke’s sanctuary in the aftermath

of the diagnosis has

been to throw himself into

sports. Luke plays midfielder

for the Orland Park-based

Sting 2007 program.

“It’s just fun to play with

my friends,” Luke said. “It

keeps me active. It’s fun, and

my dad is a soccer coach. He

always helps me learn about

soccer. He helps coach my

brother’s team: the Bobcats.”

His passion is essential

for achieving the normal

rhythms of childhood.

“Some physicians discourage

playing sports,

[thinking] any kind of trauma

is a trigger you are able

to predict,” Mandy said.

“His doctor has said to do

whatever is normal for an

11-year-old boy as possible.

The one thing we try to control

are the episodes, because

the faster you treat them, the

shorter the recovery time.”

If family and sports are the

primary way Luke has come

to deal with his condition,

self-education and heightening

awareness has become

the family’s rallying cry.

Luke takes intravenous infusions

at home and is learning

how to stick himself, Mandy

said.

Despite the scarcity of the

impacted population, those

who deal with the consequences

of hereditary angioedema

have developed

an international community.

The Granat family has aggressively

stepped into this

vibrant network.

“The disease is technically

considered genetic, but nobody

in our family has ever

had it,” Mandy said. “It’s a

spontaneous genetic mutation.

It’s confusing and, as

our experience showed, nobody

really knew what was

going on. The past two years

we have done everything

possible to learn as much as

possible about the disease

because it goes untreated or

misdiagnosed.”

As Luke learns to cope

with the emotional and physical

ramifications of living

with HAE, he has learned

even the most glancing actions

have a profound impact.

The worst part is how

the random nature of youth

is sometimes taken away.

“There are things we have

to cancel at a moment’s notice,”

Mandy said. “He can

be fine one minute, and it

can happen out of the blue

— his eyes and face or any

part of the body starting to

swell.”

But his resolve and his resilience

board

From Page 4

Dodge said one of the

main questions was whether

or not the facility would be

able to pay for itself.

Not all of the board members

were supportive of the

idea, though.

Trustee Michael Carroll

mentioned that while this

was an idea he was in favor

of in the past, the issue was

brought to the residents via

referendum in April 2017

about whether the Village

should enter into a publicprivate

partnership to develop

a sports facility.

“Sometimes referenda

come back kind of close

— within a couple hundred

votes — but in that instance,

it was a two-to-one

[vote] against,” Carroll said.

“Therefore, I, personally,

cannot get behind [this idea]

based on that result.”

Dodge, however, argued

that he felt the referendum

Carroll referenced was handled

poorly — stating there

was no site in place, no business

model or data provided.

“I, for one, am happy to

put my name to an idea like

this, to pursue it, [get] the

business model and take it

back to the people of Orland

Park,” Dodge said.

No vote was taken, as the

Kreshmore presentation was

a discussion-only item.

Two charged with felony retail theft after

allegedly grabbing $1,900 in merch

Morgan H. Harris, 21, of

3326 Savanna Lane in Matteson,

and Tamisha Wiley,

22, of 525 Homeland Road

in Matteson, each were

charged Aug. 23 with one

felony count of retail theft

after they allegedly worked

together to take gum, bedding,

electronics, power

tools, clothing and more valued

at a total of $1,901.65

from a store in the 15800

block of 94th Avenue.

They loaded carts with

merchandise and left without

paying for the items,

police said. They got in a

Mazda 3 that was stopped in

the parking lot, according to

the report. The merchandise

was found in the backseat

and trunk of the vehicle, police

said.

Harris allegedly gave police

a name and date of birth

that were redacted in the report.

She additionally was

charged with obstructing

identification.

A bag containing a green,

leafy substance that field

tested positive for cannabis

weighing 2.7 grams was

found in Wiley’s purse, police

said. She additionally

was charged with possession

of cannabis.

Another bag containing a

green, leafy substance that

field tested positive for cannabis

weighing 2.8 grams

was found in a compartment

to the side of the steering

Place. She put the items in

a cart, moved them into a

bag and tried to leave the

store without paying for the

merchandise, police said. A

loss prevention officer tried

to grab the merchandise,

but McGree-Baaddi started

swinging her arms to keep

the officer away. An offduty

police officer tried to

help, and was struck in the

face and scratched on both

of his arms, according to the

report.

Aug. 21

dogs

From Page 3

all of the handlers involved

with LCC Kare 9 Military

Ministry are dedicated volunteers,

many of whom are

veterans who can more easily

connect with fellow members

of the military as they

have a shared language and

shared history. “If you see

one of our dogs wearing the

camouflage vest, you can be

assured that the guy with the

leash is a veteran and veterans

gravitate to that,” Morrison

said noting that every

dollar donated to the program

is used to help those

in need rather than covering

administrative costs.

Representatives from

Hunter Douglas were also on

hand showcasing pet-friendly

window coverings that

eliminate cords and strings

which can be dangerous for

animals.

Oak Lawn resident Deborah

Arden learned of the event

on Facebook and she was

happy to get the opportunity

to spend time with the Kare

9 dogs. “They go to hospitals.

They go to schools,” she

said. “Unfortunately, they go

to tragedies too which is how

I first started following them.

What a great ministry they

are that they comfort people

and that’s exactly what they

do. They comfort children

and adults.

“Dogs give unconditional

love. They don’t judge anyone.

They’re just there to

comfort.”

Active Aging Expo provides ‘one-stop shop’

Bingo, chef demo,

singing performance to

round out event

Jon DePaolis, Freelance Reporter

Getting older can mean dealing

with the new or unexpected.

But 22nd Century Media is aiming

to make that outlook a little less

murky.

The fourth annual Active Aging –

An Expo for Ages 50+ is scheduled

for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at

the Tinley Park Convention Center,

located at 18451 Convention Center

Drive, in the Exhibit North section.

The event, which is sponsored by

DuPage Medical Group and Ingalls

Health System, features more than

30 vendors.

“The expo offers a lot in terms

of the different services available,

especially in the local area,” said

Heather Warthen, chief events officer

for 22nd Century Media. “We

have everything from medical and

financial [services] to health and

travel. It really runs the gamut for

our aging population.”

With so many services and businesses

to learn about, the expo

provides an excellent learning opportunity

for expo-goers — not to

mention convenience.

“I think it’s great, because it’s almost

like a one-stop shop,” Warthen

said of the expo. “A lot of the time,

it would take someone several appointments

or time out of their day

to meet with individual people [or

businesses] like this. I think this is

a great opportunity to hit all of the

different resources in one spot.”

New to this year’s expo is the

22ND CENTURY MEDIA FILE PHOTO

winner of the 2018 Orland Township

Senior Idol contest, Phil Orsi,

who will be performing from 10:30-

11 a.m. Also coming in for a cooking

demonstration is “the Unforgettable

Chef,” Tom Grotovsky, from

11:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

“He has done this for Frankfort

Township seniors [in the past], and

we’re really excited to have him,”

Warthen said of Grotovsky. “He’s

also been at our women’s expo the

past couple of years.”

Warthen said bingo — one of the

more popular aspects of the expo —

also is returning.

“That’s right, free games of bingo

for all, and we have prizes,” Warthen

said.

And as an extra incentive to those

who arrive early, free gift bags will

be given to the first 300 attendees to

walk through the expo doors.

Mapping out the best expo

experience

With this being the fourth year of

the Active Aging expo, Warthen has

seen it all. In particular, she’s figured

out several strategies and tips

for people planning on attending

this year’s event.

The first? Plan ahead of time.

Warthen suggests visiting

www.22ndcenturymedia.com/ag

ing. There, expo-goers can take a

look at the list of vendors and make

a list of which ones they absolutely

want to see during their visit to the

convention center.

“That helps map out your day,”

Warthen said.

Warthen also suggests that expogoers

take care of their feet by wearing

comfortable walking shoes.

After all, a four-hour expo is a marathon,

not a sprint.

And for those who want one of

the 300 free gift bags, Warthen suggests

planning to arrive early — as

in being at the convention center

prior to 9 a.m.

Lastly, Warthen asked that

expo-goers “come with an open

mind.”

“There may be a service that you

are surprised to find you may need

in your life, and you didn’t even realize

it,” Warthen said.

The Orland Park Prairie’s

Standout Student

Sponsored by Marquette Bank

Carson Krol, Sandburg senior

Carson Krol was chosen as The Orland

Park Prairie’s Standout Student for a

perfect 36 on his ACT, and because he is a

great all-around student, according to his

teachers.

What is one essential you must have when

studying?

One thing I must have while studying

is smooth jazz playing through my headphones.

It helps me to relax and concentrate.

... Got to pump the tunes!

What do you like to do when not in school or

studying?

I like to play golf in my free time. It is

a lot of fun and helps me relax a bit. Other

than that, I like to hang out with my friends

and enjoy some time without worrying about

schoolwork or college stuff.

What is your dream job?

My dream job would be to start my own

business in Silicon Valley and become a successful

tech entrepreneur. I am drawn to innovation

and hope that will be a big part of

my company.

What is one thing people don’t know about

you?

One thing people do not know about me

is I am unnaturally good at “Wii Golf.” My

best round is a 17-under, or a 55 on 18 holes

for anyone who is counting.

Who do you look up to and why?

I look up to my cousin Jacob, because he is

a great leader and is very personable. I hope

to one day be as outgoing and positive as he

is.

What’s your favorite class and why?

My favorite class is AP computer science.

I love learning how to code and give commands

to a computer. This class is my first

somewhat-elective at Sandburg.

What’s one thing that stands out about your

school?

The connectedness that Sandburg brings

to the table. It really allows you to branch

photo submitted

out and build a vast network of supports with

your teachers, administrators and peers. I feel

this has allowed me and many others to become

intertwined within the Sandburg community,

causing you to care for the schools

as whole and making it so much more than a

place we must show up at each day.

What extracurricular(s) do you wish your

school had?

I really wish our school had a ping-pong

club. I’ve tried very hard for three years to

establish one ... however, I just could not

get it done. I believe it would be a fun, lowstress

club and a place where students could

come to relax a bit after a long day of school.

If you could change one thing about school,

what would it be?

If I could change on thing about school, I

would make it closer to my house. Between

school and extracurricular activities, I have

spent so much time driving back and forth

that it probably exceeds the time I have spent

doing actual homework.

What’s your best memory from school?

My best memory was probably performing

in last year’s talent show. Me and my friends

tried out mostly as a joke, but we made it as

a comedy/actual skill act in which I recited

190 digits of pi while simultaneously having

whipped cream sprayed all over me. It was

so fun to perform in front of an audience —

something I have never really done before

but is now something that intrigues me. It

was great to try something new and meet different

people, all with great talents.

Standout Student is a weekly feature for The

Orland Park Prairie. Nominations come from

Orland Park area schools.

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

Tinley Park mom jogging to raise

awareness for daughter’s rare

disease

In 2006 there were only 200

known cases of congenital central

hypoventilation syndrome worldwide.

As of 2008, that number had

increased to 1,000, according to the

U.S. National Library of Medicine.

A decade later, advocates still place

that number around 1,200.

Tinley Park native Laura Brown

and her husband Jeff’s 18-month old

daughter, Josie, is one of them. She

was born with a mutated PHOX2B

gene which medical researchers

have discovered helps the body and

brain regulate normal breathing at

the molecular level. Effectively,

Josie’s autonomic nervous system

fails to connect signals that tell the

lungs to pump oxygen. Simply going

to sleep can be fatal.

“There were unexplained periods

of respiratory distress where she

wasn’t breathing right,” Brown recalled.

“It was really scary.”

A “fighter” as described by Laura,

Josie was born five weeks premature

and spent close to five of her first six

months of life in the Pediatric Intensive

Care Unit at Hope Children’s

Hospital. A forward-thinking doctor

correctly predicted Josie’s respiratory

issues, which at this point had

required the use of a ventilation machine,

could be CCHS. An intricate

genetic testing process would later

confirm.

To bring awareness of CCHS

Laura has organized “Jogging for

Josie” in an effort to raise $12,000

for the nonprofit CCHS Network by

partaking in the Chicago Marathon

on Oct. 7. The number was doubled

after reaching her initial goal of

$6,000, or $5 for each of the 1,200

known cases.

“She’s one tough cookie — my

hero for sure,” Laura said.

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

‘Control beyond the grave’

The old Boy Scout motto, “Be

prepared,” can be applied to many

things in life, and can especially be

applied to death.

Contemplating one’s own mortality

can be an uncomfortable thing,

but facing the questions about what

would happen to those left behind is

essential to ensure that those loved

ones receive what one’s final wishes

wanted them to receive.

That’s why Skye Bergeson and

Richard Rappold held an estate

planning seminar at Mokena Community

Public Library District Sept.

18. Bergeson is a financial advisor

with Edward Jones in Mokena, and

Rappold is an attorney who lives in

Frankfort and practices out of Chicago.

According to Bergeson, an estate

plan should involve the services of

a financial advisor to help manage

assets, a tax professional to keep

an eye on the tax laws to make sure

those assets are protected under

ever-changing tax code, and an attorney

to help keep assets from being

bogged down in court and not

fulfilling one’s wishes in a timely

manner.

Any estate plan should be specific

to an individual, as everyone’s circumstances

and goals will be different;

however, the individual, along

with the estate planning team of the

financial advisor, tax professional

and attorney, should monitor and reevaluate

the plan every six months

to a year, Burgeson said.

FROM THE FRANKFORT STATION

Frankfort library program addresses

healthy habits

It is a disease with no cure and

no prevention, but it is not without

hope.

Hadi Finerty, of the Alzheimer’s

Association, met with seniors Sept.

13 at the Frankfort Public Library

District to address the scary reality

of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Finerty said most times she gives

the presentation, attendees want to

know if they will get the disease or

if they already have it.

“They’re looking to see what the

signs are and [if] they have any of

the signs,” she said.

The thing is, sometimes there is

not a definite answer to their questions.

While family history and genetics

can play a part in determining

whether someone will be diagnosed

with Alzheimer’s or another form

of dementia in their lifetimes, just

because someone is genetically predisposed

to get the disease does not

mean they will.

Instead of dwelling on statistics

and worrying about it, Finerty said it

is important for people to talk about

it and learn as much as they can.

“Whether that’s talking about it to

your family, talking about it to your

spouse [or] talking about it to your

doctor, talk about it, because everybody

automatically assumes it’s Alzheimer’s

or dementia, and it might

not even be that,” she said.

The general effects of aging can

make it hard to recall details like

names, places or words, but in most

cases people eventually remember

those things if it is just age-related

forgetfulness. With Alzheimer’s and

dementia, she said, it is different.

FROM THE NEW LENOX PATRIOT

After Senior Night score, West boys

golf excited for regional

A back injury kept senior Collin

Phelps from playing golf for 10

days.

Lincoln-Way West’s Senior Night

on Sept. 18 was his first time swinging

a club since suffering that injury.

Against Plainfield East at The

Sanctuary, he didn’t know what to

expect.

“My mentality for today was just

to enjoy it and not care what I shoot

because no one was expecting me to

do good having been out a week and

a half,” Phelps said.

As some golfers may take a round

or two to work back to normalcy on

the golf course, it only took Phelps

a few shots. The four-year varsity

member carded a 38, which is under

his scoring average of 38.5, to contribute

to a winning score of 151-

193 over the Bengals.

“I kept my swing and didn’t really

over swing because my back

still hurts a little bit,” he said. “I just

kept calm.”

The team’s only other senior,

Dylan Adair, fittingly was the medalist

with a 36. Phelps’ younger

brother, Zack, shot a 37, and a 40

was the fourth posted score by both

Jason Lange and Ethan Healy.

West will join a star-studded cast

at the Joliet Central Regional Tuesday,

Oct. 2, at Inwood Golf Course

in Joliet. SWSC leader Lockport,

Lincoln-Way Central, Lincoln-Way

East and Providence are some of the

teams in the nine-school field vying

for the Top 3 spots to advance to

sectionals.

“If they keep up these scores,

we’ll see,” West coach Donna

Thompson said. “I’ll be happy if we

go to sectionals as a team.”

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

Light pole falls on, injures three

Butler School students

A light pole fell and injured three

fourth-grade students after striking

them while they were at recess Sept.

17 outside Butler School in Lockport,

according to Homer Community

Consolidated School District 33C.

The district posted a message on

its Facebook page Monday afternoon

stating that all three children

were evaluated at a local hospital

and were “okay.”

Homer 33C Superintendent Craig

Schoppe said the incident happened

at approximately 11:40 a.m. in front

of the school.

“The district’s first concern is the

safety and well-being of our students,”

the district said in a statement,

which was provided to The

Horizon on Sept. 19. “Due to the

fact that this involves individual

students, and we are currently investigating

the incident, the district

has no further comment.”

Jeff Scellato, of Lockport, is the

stepfather of one of the children,

Peyton Forrest, who was injured by

the light pole. He said Forrest was

coming out of a door to recess and

observed three children standing on

the base of the pole, and Scellato

said Forrest told him a teacher told

those children to get off.

Forrest was standing further away

from the pole when it then came

down and hit him in his back, according

to what he told Scellato.

The 9-year-old suffered a fractured

rib as a result and was transported

via ambulance to Silver

Cross Hospital, as were the other

two children, Scellato said.

“Thank God no one was killed,

a teacher or student or anybody,”

Scellato said.

FROM THE HOMER HORIZON

Man charged for anti-Muslim

vandalism in Homer Glen

A man has been charged for vandalizing

a sidewalk with Islamophobic

graffiti Sept. 17 in front of a

Muslim family’s Homer Glen home,

according to a Sept. 20 release from

the Will County Sheriff’s Office.

Patrick J. Goshorn Jr., 26, of

13057 Finch Court in Homer Glen,

was charged with one count of felony

criminal damage to property and

one count of felony criminal damage

to state-supported property by the

sheriff’s office. The case was turned

over to the Will County State’s Attorney’s

Office for review, and the office

announced additional charges of

a felony and misdemeanor count of

criminal defacement to property and

one count of a hate crime, bringing

the total to five charges.

One of the homeowners originally

called police about 8 p.m.

Sept. 17 after discovering the graffiti

outside their home in the 13000

block of W. Sparrow Court, according

to Will County Sheriff’s Office

spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer.

In addition to the graffiti —

which mocked the common Muslim

phrase “peace be upon him” with an

obscene variation — the taillights,

trunk and bumper of the homeowners’

vehicle, a 2013 Toyota, were

covered in brown spray paint, according

to Hoffmeyer.

After appearing in video court on

Thursday, Sept. 20, Goshorn had

his bond set at $100,000, with 10

percent to apply. A condition of his

bond states that if he is able to bond

out, he will be released with an electronic

monitoring device and will

not be allowed to be within 3,000

feet of the vandalized home.

Goshorn’s next court date is

set for Oct. 11 at the Will County

Courthouse.

FROM THE SPORTS EDITOR

Hard to comprehend what

these parents are going through

Jeff Vorva

j.vorva@22ndcm.com

Uh, oh. Vorva’s back

in this space. That

can only mean one

thing. Bill Jones took a vacation

last week. But don’t

worry, Bill was scheduled

to return this week and

should be well refreshed

and ready to kick some

tail before...well...taking

another vacation next

week. I will likely see you

friendly readers again

Oct. 11. Circle your calendars!

A couple of decades

ago, my son T.J. was very

sick and my wife, Maggie,

and I brought him to

the doc, where the kid was

supposed to drink a cup of

barium.

Only one parent was allowed

to go into the room.

Maggie is a nurse. I am a

journalist. And a chicken.

So I hung out in the waiting

room.

A couple of chairs to my

right, some old guy was

drinking some barium. It

kind of looked like a milkshake.

Well, the look on

his face showed that if it

was a milkshake, it was

flavored with some paint

and maybe a little battery

acid, to boot.

This was the stuff my

toddler was about to drink.

I was close enough to

the room to hear muffled

conversation.

“Muffle, muffle, muffle,”

said the doctor.

“Muffle, muffle, muffle,”

said my wife.

After a few seconds of

silence, T.J. had his say. It

wasn’t muffled.

It was an ear-shattering

scream and cry that had me

tempted to get out of the

chair, kick the door down

TV cop-style and get the

kid out of the room.

But there, I sat. They

know what they are doing,

right?

At that point, I have to

admit that the feeling I

had was mixture of fear,

frustration and a little

depression. I thought they

were sawing off a couple of

his fingers, the way he was

screaming.

OK, here’s the funny part

of the story.

About a half hour later,

I found out that he wasn’t

screaming and crying

because of the rancid taste

of the barium. He was

kicking up a fuss that could

be heard two counties away

because when he was done,

the doctor took the cup

away.

Millennials!

I tell that story because

I can still remember how

horrible and helpless I felt

when I thought the kid was

suffering.

That brings me to The

Orland Park Prairie’s

cover story.

For the past three years,

11-year-old Luke Granat of

Orland Park suffered from

a rare blood disorder called

hereditary angioedema

(HAE). Patrick Z. Mc-

Gavin does a wonderful job

telling Luke’s story, which

includes a pretty strong

support system of family,

friends and peers.

When I hear stories like

these, I start thinking about

the big slice of hell the

parents are going through.

In this case, Steve and

Mandy Granat must have

the resolve of granite to go

through this.

My little moment of

dread during the barium

scare was nothing compared

to parents who try to

live their lives while worrying

about the next bad

turn of events their kid may

have to go through. Sure,

we have gone through

sports injuries and other

sickness with T.J. and his

sister, Lauren. But nothing

like this.

Last year, I covered a

boys soccer match between

Sandburg and Stagg in

Palos Heights and proceeds

from that game went to

help Lurie’s Children’s

Hospital and a girl known

as Maxine the Mighty

Heart Warrior. Maxine

Zolk, the daughter of a

Stagg assistant coach, had

not turned 2 yet and she

had already gone through a

heart transplant.

She was honored at halftime

and she was running

around on the field like any

other kid. She sure looked

good to me.

In August, she was in

rejection.

Again, there is just no

way to comprehend the

ups and downs and highs

and lows of emotions the

parents — Randy and

Melissa — have been going

through.

On Thursday night, Sept.

27, Andrew is visiting

Stagg for another game to

help the Lurie Children’s

Circle of Friends. Andrew

coach Loren Zolk is

Maxine’s uncle. I plan to

be there. Will Maxine be

there? I’m not sure.

There are thousands of

stories like these out there.

For you parents that have

to deal with something like

this, you have my admiration

and prayers.

For some of us parents

whose biggest concern is

a barium scare, we should

just consider ourselves

damn lucky.

Where cigarette holders meet Shirley Temple

Antiques Show ‘n’ Tell

brings out Orland Park

treasures

JESSE WRIGHT

Freelance Reporter

Nobody got rich Sept. 15 at the

first Orland Park Antiques Show

‘n’ Tell, but dozens of Orland Park

residents did get a little more information

about heirlooms, old knickknacks

and forgotten basement

treasures.

The Orland Park History Museum

held the event as a fund raiser

and a sort of “Antiques Roadshow”

— a chance for residents to bring

in their old odds and ends for appraisal

by local antique dealers.

The dealers volunteered their time,

and each of them run antique shops

in Orland Park.

History Museum Advisory

Board Member Chuck Pelini received

a small surprise when he

brought in a hand-painted sign for

the Trinity Mountain Fur Trading

Company, estimated to have been

painted sometime in the 1930s. He

said he had been keeping it in his

basement. It turned out to be worth

$200.

“I’ll probably hang it up,” Pelini

said. “I’m not going to sell it.”

Other treasures had more sentimental

value.

Joann Infelise, of Orland Park,

brought in her Shirley Temple

doll, a childhood treasure. The

doll was still in good condition.

The socks were a little stretched

out and the shoe soles were a bit

worn, but Nila Rundle, of Orland

Park, an appraiser and the owner

of Anna B’s Antiques N Things

on Beacon Avenue, said a doll restorer

could easily make the doll

as good as new.

Rundle told Infelise that not

too long ago the doll would have

fetched hundreds of dollars but,

these days, the value was less than

$100.

“Kids don’t know who Shirley

Temple is,” Rundle said. “They

don’t have a clue.”

Joann Infelise (left) watches while antiques appraiser Nila Rundle takes a look at Infelise’s childhood Shirley Temple doll.

She turned the doll over in her

hands and examined it.

“Now, you can maybe get $75

for it, if you can find someone to

buy it,” she said.

But the monetary value was not

important to Infelise.

“I don’t want to sell it,” she said.

“It’s the last of my childhood.”

Between appraisals, Rundle explained

her history with antiques.

They have been a lifelong passion.

“I was born to be an antiques

dealer,” she said. “I’ve always

loved antiques. As a little girl, I

would go knock on the door next

door and ask to see the silver collection.”

Museum Foundation President

Karen Friker said that was the story

of most of the antiques — their

value to their owner far outpaced

their market value.

“It always has family attachment,”

she said.

Friker said people had been

bringing in china, lamps, toys and,

in one instance, a 1940s cigarette

holder that was also part jewelry

box.

Although the event was a first

for the history museum, by midday,

Friker said it was a hit.

“The people are enjoying it,” she

said.

The Orland Park History Museum

opened in 2016, and Friker

said the money raised by the event

would go toward updating museum

projects.

The museum is located at the

old town hall, 14415 South Beacon

Ave. Admission is free and the museum

is open Tuesday, Thursday

and Saturday. For hours, call (708)

873-1622.

get out of town!

Indianapolis: a great place to catch a movie (seriously)

Find fantastic food,

drink and games at

the Crossroads of

America

Bill Jones, Editor

I once made an overnight

trip to Indianapolis with the

primary purpose of seeing a

movie.

Silly, right?

After all, any suburb that

doesn’t have a theater nowadays

probably has one next

door. And most are a far cry

from the multiplexes of yore

— upgraded with reclining

seats, full bars and extensive

menus. IMAX no longer requires

a trip to Navy Pier.

And Dolby Atmos speaker

systems and state-of-the-art

projection have become the

norm.

So why drive two-and-ahalf

hours for a movie?

Well, in my case, it was

all about “Dunkirk.” While

I could have caught it down

the street, director Christopher

Nolan released the film

in a number of formats. The

“best” combination was supposed

to be 70mm IMAX,

but only 31 theaters across

the United States were showing

it that way. The closest

was the IMAX at Indiana

State Museum in Indianapolis.

Worth it? The movie was

great, though it wouldn’t

have been too diminished

by a more convenient theater.

But these days, a movie

needs to be event viewing if

I’m going out to see it. So

why not go way, way out to

see it — really make an event

of it?

And it is a wonderful auditorium.

While IMAX varies

in size nowadays, the one at

the museum is the full enchilada.

The screen is enormous,

the seating stadium-style, the

sound booming. The black

leather, branded chairs also

were incredibly comfy, and it

was immaculately clean (no

sticky floors!). Just don’t go

too hungry. The concessions

were still entrenched in the

1990s — popcorn, soft drinks

and candy. Instead ...

On the way

Stop at Locally Grown

Gardens, roughly halfway

between downtown and Interstate

405 due north. It’s

a year-round farm market,

owned by a chef. So, there are

plenty of cool things to find

inside the shop, both in terms

of food and knickknacks. But

there also is a limited seasonal

menu, utilizing some

of those fresh ingredients and

highlighting smoked meats.

If it’s on, get the grilled

salmon filet. And if the weather

is nice and the wind isn’t

carrying too much from those

smokers in your direction, enjoy

the outside eating space.

While you’re there

Grab a beer at The Koelschip,

Central State Brewing’s

de facto taproom that

also serves a variety of others’

brews. It’s a cool spot

and taps some good beer. Just

pass on the Underberg —

while produced in Germany,

it’s basically Indy’s Malört.

Before you leave

Get yourself into Milktooth.

Its name bothers me

on a deep level, but it’s a hip

brunch spot that actually lives

up to the hype. It’s best if

you can grab a seat along the

kitchen counter to watch the

magic happen. I’m not going

to tell you what to order.

But if they’re busy or you’re

in a hurry, don’t overlook the

front counter for pastries and

coffee.

Other reasons to make a trip

Sports fans already know

they can catch the Colts and

the 500 in Indy, but go for

the Big Ten Championship.

It’s been at Lucas Oil Stadium

the past few years and is

slated to be there for at least

a few more. One of college

football’s biggest title games

takes over the neighborhood

with a convention, block party

and more. So if, say, Iowa

ends up a heartbreaker, you

can still have some fun.

In August, Indy plays host

Reader-traveler tips

to the biggest tabletop gaming

convention in the United

States, Gen Con. In addition

to the opportunity to try a

number of games, downtown

is saturated with costumes and

themed activities over those

four days. It’s a lot of fun.

Get out of Town! is a monthly

travel column focusing on

relatively local destinations

and activities, with helpful tips,

readers’ stories and more.

“My new bride Marissa Miglio

and I are currently enjoying our

honeymoon in Maui, HI! Budget

time wisely. Go on the Road to Hana

excursion if you can! It’s amazing!”

Joe Miglio

“Go with the flow. No trip is

perfect, and the lasting stories are

in the bumps in the road, not the

perfection!”

Susan Walter Glover

“Wherever I travel, I mail myself a

postcard from the place I’ve visited.

I list all of the sites I’ve seen and

activities that I did on that trip. It’s

fun to receive the postcard after

being home for a week or so, and

reminisce about my trip!”

Suzie McKeon

The theater at the Indiana State Museum was one of few

across the country that screened “Dunkirk” in 70mm IMAX.

Despite its sign at the time, it is, indeed, a theater. Go on in;

the temperature is just fine. Bill Jones/22nd Century Media

Packing it in

Tips for packing light from Assistant Editor Amanda

Stoll

Whether you are going away for a weekend or a

week, it is possible to pack everything into a single,

carry-on sized bag with a little bit of strategic

packing. Here are some tips to keep you from

overpacking on your next trip.

1. Shoes

Shoes can be a serious space-sucker in your

luggage. Instead of packing all the shoes you would

normally wear in a week, try to limit yourself to 2-3

pairs of shoes. One of those, preferably the bulkiest,

can be your travel shoes. For me, that’s usually my

running shoes, which also happen to be the comfiest

for traveling. For the ones left in your luggage: flatten

them, if possible, or use the space inside to pack

socks, undies or other small items.

2. Clothing

While you might not want to wear the same

shirt twice, you likely can wear the same pair of

pants or shorts a few times. The same goes for

sweaters, accessories and shoes. Lay out all of your

clothes while packing and see how many different

combinations you can make while using some of the

same pieces.

3. Eliminate non-essentials

Limit the size of your bag, and let that dictate how

much stuff you need to bring. If it doesn’t fit, it

doesn’t go. The chances are you have packed more

than you need. Prioritize what you need to bring and

get rid of that second — or third — pair of jeans.

Tasteful Kitchen Completes Luxury Townhome

Experience at Brookside Meadows

The heart of the home is your

kitchen. It is the gathering place for

family and friends to enjoy food,

kindle relationships and make great

memories. Crana Homes puts a

great deal of

thought into your

Brookside Meadows kitchen with

stylish layouts, attractive materials

and quality appliances all designed

to complete your ‘tasteful kitchen

experience.’ These attractive luxury

townhomes, now in their final

construction phase, are quietly

hidden away in Tinley Park behind

a large wooded tract with lakes

and open spaces. Since prices are

still ranging from the upper-$200s

(including site) demand is high and

buyers are urged to visit soon before

prime sites disappear.

Crana Homes’ decades-earned

reputation for craftsmanship,

customer satisfaction and high

resale value culminates at Brookside

Meadows. These homes uphold

the Crana quality promise for

design, quality and attention to

detail. Buyers can select from three

different award-winning floorplans:

the Fahan II, the Lennan II, and

Crana’s newest offering here, the

Dunree II.

All floorplans follow a large open

space kitchen design featuring

stunning granite countertops

surrounded by beautiful custom

maple cabinets. The Fahan II

is a roomy and beautiful 3,303

total square foot luxury townhome

(including a 1,216 sq.’ basement)

with an attached two-car, dry-walled

garage and cement driveway. The

master bedroom offers an optional

coffered ceiling and the optional

master bath plan includes a relaxing

soaker tub. The two-story entrance

foyer is stately and inviting and

spreads out to a split level floor plan

that has three bedrooms

(fourth bedroom optional) and two

and a half baths.

An elegant loft overlooks a

comfortable great room which is

adjacent to the kitchen. Elegant

hardwood oak is hand chosen for

doors, floors, railings and trim.

Ceramic tile covers the floors in

the foyer as well as the bathrooms

- which also feature granite vanity

tops. Entertain family and friends

with a full lookout basement and

a patio which are included in the

Fahan II.

The Lennan II is a stately two/

three bedroom split level home

which includes most of the features

of the Fahan II except the spacious

master suite is located on the upper

level and the Lennan II features a

dining/family room. It has 3,167

square feet of total space (including

a 1,049 sq.’ basement) with a twocar,

dry-walled garage and cement

driveway.

The Dunree II has 3,194 square

feet of

living space (including a

sizable 1,226 sq.’ basement). There

are three bedrooms and two and

half baths. The master suite - with

walk in shower and seat - is on the

first floor. A 12’ x 12’ exterior deck is

great for hosting guests.

All homes have underground

utilities, deluxe landscaping and

first floor laundry rooms. Buyers

fireplace, walkout basement,

coffered ceilings, skylights and a

soaker tub in the master bath.

Sprinkler system, smoke detectors

Tuff-R insulated wall sheathing.

Hidden inside Tinley Park,

Brookside Meadows is still close

to everything: retail, dining,

transportation routes, Metra rail

station and airports. The school

system is among the best in the state

and Tinley Park, named “The Best

Place In America to Raise a Family”

by Bloomberg’s BusinessWeek,

maintains 40 parks and the huge

Bettenhausen indoor recreational

center.

The heart of

your home

is an attractive and fully

functional kitchen. See for

yourself at Brookside Meadows’

fully furnished and beautifully

decorated models. The sales center

is open Monday through Thursday

10:00am to 4:00pm; Saturday and

Sunday from noon to 4:00pm; and

Friday by appointment.

To visit Brookside Meadows take

I-80, exit La Grange Road south

for just under two miles to La Porte

Distinctive Home Builders Introduces New Craftsman Homes

In Manhattan and Peotone – From the mid-$200’s

New designs are a result of buyer feedback

Two refreshing designs mark

the beginning of a new series

of Craftsman-style homes

available from Distinctive Home

Builders at its latest new home

communities: Prairie Trails;

located in Manhattan within the

highly-regarded Lincoln-Way

School District and at WestGate

Manor in Peotone within

the desirable Peotone School

District.

“Craftsman homes were

introduced in the early 1900s

in California with designs

based on a simpler, functional

aesthetic using a higher level

of craftsmanship and natural

materials. These homes were a

departure from homes that were

mass produced from that era,

“according to Bryan Nooner,

president of Distinctive Home

Builders.

“The Craftsman design has

made a comeback today for

many of the same reasons it

started over a century ago. Our

customers want to live in a home

that gets away from the “mass

produced” look and live in a

home that has more character. As

a result of our daily interaction

with our homeowners and their

input, we are excited to introduce

these two homes, with additional

designs in the works.”

Nooner, who meets with

each homeowner prior to

construction, has been working

on these plans forawhile and felt

that the timing was ideal for the

debut. “Customers were asking

for something different and

simple with less monotony and

higher architectural standards.”

The result was the Craftsman

ranch and the Prairie twostory,

now available at Prairie

Trails and WestGate Manor.

The Craftsman ranch features

an open floor plan with Great

Room, three bedrooms, two

baths and a two-car (optional

three-car) garage. The Prairie

features a two-story foyer and

Great Room, three bedrooms

and one and one-half baths, a

convenient Flex Room space

on the main level and a two-car

(optional three-car) garage. The

Craftsman architectural elements

on both homes include brick and

stone exteriors with cedar shake

accent siding, low-pitched gabled

bracket roofs, front porches with

tapered columns and stone piers,

partially paned windows, and a

standard panel front entry door.

Distinctive Home Builders

offers a Craftsman-style trim

package offering trim without

ornate profiles and routers. The

trim features simplicity in design

with rectangles, straight lines and

layered look trims over doors for

example. The front entry door

will have the standard Craftsman

panel style door. Distinctive has

also created a Craftsman color

palate to assist buyers in making

coordinated choices for the

interior of their new Craftsman

home. Colors, cabinet styles and

flooring choices blend seamlessly

with the Craftsman trim package

and are available in gray tones

package and earth tones.

Distinctive offers custom maple

kitchen cabinets featuring solid

wood construction (no particle

board), have solid wood drawers

with dove tail joints, which is

very rare in the marketplace.

“When you buy a new home

from Distinctive, you truly are

receiving custom made cabinets

in every home we sell no matter

what the price range,” noted

Nooner.

Distinctive Home Builders

works to achieve a delivery goal

of 90 days with zero punch list

items for its homeowners. “Our

three decades building homes

provides an efficient construction

system,” said Nooner. “Many of

our skilled craftsmen have been

working with our company

for over 20 years. We also

take pride on having excellent

communicators throughout our

organization. This translates into

a positive buying and building

experience for our homeowners

and one of the highest referral

rates in the industry.”

Nooner added that all homes

are highly energy efficient. Every

home built will have upgraded

wall and ceiling insulation

values with energy efficient

windows and high efficiency

furnaces. Before homeowners

move into their new home,

Distinctive Home Builders

conducts a blower door test that

pressurizes the home to ensure

that each home passes a set of

very stringent Energy Efficiency

guidelines.

With the addition of these two

new designs, there are now 15

ranch, split-level and six twostory

single-family home styles to

choose from each offering from

three to eight different exterior

elevations at both communities.

The three- to four-bedroom

homes feature one and one-half

to two-and-one-half baths, twoto

three-car garages and a family

room, all in approximately 1,600

to over 3,000 square feet of living

space. Basements are included in

most models as well. Distinctive

also encourages customization

to make your new home truly

personalized to suit your lifestyle.

Oversize home sites; brick

exteriors on all four sides of the

first floor; custom maple cabinets;

ceramic tile or hardwood

floors in the kitchen, baths and

foyer; genuine wood trim and

doors and concrete driveways

can all be yours at Prairie

Trails and WestGate Manor.

Most all home sites at Prairie

Trails and WestGate Manor

can accommodate a three-car

garage; a very important amenity

to the Manhattan homebuyer,

said Nooner.

“When we opened Prairie

Trails and WestGate Manor we

wanted to provide the best new

home value for the dollar and

we feel with offering Premium

Standard Features that we do

just that. So why wait? This is

truly the best time to build your

dream home!”

Prairie Trails is also a beautiful

place to live and raise a family

featuring a 20-acre lake on site,

as well as direct access to the 22-

mile Wauponsee Glacial Prairie

Path that borders the community

and meanders through many

neighboring communities and

links to many other popular

trails. The Manhattan Metra

station is less than a mile away.

Besides Prairie Trails,

Distinctive Home Builders

has built homes throughout

Manhattan in the Butternut

Ridge and Leighlinbridge

developments, as well as in the

Will and south Cook county

areas over the past 30 years.

Distinctive Home Builders

chose the Will County village

of Peotone for its newest

community of 38 single-family

homes at WestGate Manor

within walking distance of the

esteemed Peotone High School.

Its convenient location between

Interstate 57 and Illinois Route

50 provide easy access to I-80

and commuters enjoy several

nearby train stations and a

35-minute drive to Chicago.

REGIONAL GOLF

Eagles girls and boys golfers hope to fly

TIM CRONIN, Freelance Reporter

Ask a high school golf coach at this time

of the year what’s needed most as conference

and regional play looms, and the answer

will be almost universal: a fourth score

from the five (or more) players who tee off,

as only the top four count.

Sandburg’s girls team, which has won the

Southwest Suburban Blue the last five seasons

and whose last state championship appearance

as a team was 2015, could be one

of those four-player teams.

“Right now, we’re just trying to find that

fourth score and that’s been the case all

year,” coach Todd Allen said. “We’ve got a

real solid top three. We’re just trying to find

someone with a fourth score.”

The Eagles showed strength up top in the

recent Celtic Swing Invitational, hosted by

Providence Catholic at Ravisloe Country

Club in Homewood. Athena Kwon, a sophomore,

scored 1-over-par 73, two off the

torrid place of winner Grace Curran of Lincoln-Way

Central. Hannah Kilbane, a Butler-bound

senior with three appearances in

the IHSA’s Class 2A Championship, fired a

2-over 74, including a double-bogey where

the bogey putt bounced out of the cup. And

Joanna James, like Kwon a sophomore,

came home in 83 strokes.

That’s three.

Normally, the Eagles would have a fourth

player in or close to that neighborhood, but

junior Sydney Dea took ill after 12 holes

and had to go home. So junior Katie Fleming,

usually Sandburg’s fifth player, became

its fourth scorer, and her 110 combined

with the other three scores added up to 340

strokes, good for seventh place in the Gold

Division.

Had Dea been able to finish, the Eagles

would probably have been several places

closer to the Lincoln-Way Central’s winning

score of 314.

“Sydney’s been our fourth typically,” Allen

said. “We’ve been very competitive,

we’re 7-1 in dual matches, placed second in

Athena Kwon, a sophomore at Sandburg,

has been strong heading into the

postseason. TIM CRONIN/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

a couple big invites, but we’re just trying to

find that fourth score.”

Ask Kilbane and Kwon, both of whom advanced

to the state final last year, and their

enthusiasm has no bounds.

“I think we shape up pretty well,” Kilbane

said. “We always want to play better, but I

think we’ve got a pretty good chance. Athena,

she’s just a great player, and we also

have Joanna, who’s also a sophomore and

also a great player.

“It would be great in my last year to go

down as a team. It would be really special.

Obviously, we have to focus individually on

playing well.”

Sandburg was scheduled to host the

SouthWest Suburban Blue tournament

at Silver Lake on Tuesday, Sept. 25, The

Eagles’ regional at Carriage Greens on

Wednesday Oct. 3 is where everything has

to come together. Only three teams advance

to the sectional, and Sandburg will be scrapping

with Hinsdale Central, Hinsdale South,

Marist and Mother McAuley, among others.

Sandburg senior Hannah Kilbane is trying

to become the second golfer in school

history to go to state four years.

22ND CENTURY MEDIA FILE PHOTO

“This year at sectional, there’s probably

four or five teams I think are competing for

the three spots, but it all comes down to that

fourth score,” Allen said. “It really does.

And Hannah’s got a chance to make it down

four years. The only other girl at Sandburg

who’s done that is Emilyee McGiles. She

made it three years as a team, and as an individual

her senior year.”

McGiles, who achieved that feat from

2013-16, is in her sophomore season at

Southern Illinois.

“I love the girls,” Allen said. “They’re

a group, they work hard, they’re closeknit.

So far the year’s been fantastic. We

have some really talented golfers. We

have team goals we set at the beginning of

each year. Setting those goals and trying

to achieve them – when they sit down as a

group and set them, it helps bring them together.

“I’m the luckiest guy alive. We’ve had

fantastic girls, had a great run, but I attribute

Max Farley of Sandburg is hoping to

improve on a 26th-place finish at the

Illinois High School Association state meet.

Regionals begin on Tuesday, Oct. 2 for the

boys. 22ND CENTURY MEDIA FILE PHOTO

it 100 percent to the girls. It’s a fantastic run

the last 5-6 years.”

Boys regional

Sandburg will host its own Class 3A regional

on Tuesday, Oct. 2 at Silver Lake

Country Club in Orland Park.

Eisenhower, Reavis, Marist, Oak Lawn,

Richards, Shepard, Stagg and Andrew are

the other squads in the regional.

Last year, Sandburg finished fifth in regional

play and Max Farley, Matt James

and Mitchell Mazzei advanced to sectional

while Farley was a sectional medalist and

advanced to state, where he finished tied for

26th with a 151.

All three are back on a team that broke

300 in a tournament this season and a 140

in a dual match, which is the best score by

the Eagles in at least 20 years and could be

a school record according to coach Jeff Kwilose.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

10 Questions

With Lauren Mizera

Lauren Mizera is a middle hitter for Sandburg’s

volleyball team.

You’ve have some big blocks in your

career. What’s the secret to getting a

big block?

You really have to read the setters and hitters

to anticipate where the ball is going to

go and then commit to your decision without

second guessing yourself.

If you had a chance to match up with

any other volleyball player, who

would it be against?

I’d probably have to go with the older

girls I’ve played with on varsity that graduated

like Abbie Stefanon and Mo Imrie because

we always had so much fun playing

together and it would be cool to match up

against them. We would definitely have a lot

of laughs in that game.

What is your proudest moment in the

sport?

Definitely during our sectional game

against McAuley my sophomore year. I had

to play one rotation of back row after serving

as a middle and I dug two back to back hits

from Notre Dame commit Charlie Niego. It

was pretty cool being that middles never really

play back row.

Are there any embarrassing

moments you had in the sport?

During practice once we were scrimmaging

and my team got a kill and I kicked

my leg up and did like a dance because we

were so excited we won, thinking nobody

saw. The next day we watched film on our

scrimmage and everybody saw it on the

video.

Do you have a hero, or someone you

look up to?

I really look up to my older sister Amanda.

She’s my best friend because we do everything

together and are super close. She’s

definitely a role model to me.

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

Is there something people don’t know

about you?

I taught myself how to play the guitar last

year and have been doing it since.

Any superstitions?

My club coach four years ago gave us blue

ribbons for our shoes and told us to “look

down at it if we ever make a mistake or get

nervous” and I’ve been wearing the blue ribbon

on my shoe ever since. I’ve been through

like three pairs of shoes and I make sure to

tie the ribbon on each time.

If you could have dinner with anyone

— living or dead — who would it be

with?

Probably Bob Marley because his music

makes him seem like he would be super chill

and would have some cool stories.

If they made a movie about your life,

who should play you?

Blake Lively.

What would that movie be called?

“Life in the Fast Lane.”

FOOTBALL

Eagles’ wrong turn could prove costly

TIM YONKE, Freelance Reporter

The Sandburg football

team came to the proverbial

fork in the road Friday

night, Sept. 21, when it

faced Thornton in a Southwest

Suburban Conference

contest.

Turn left, and the Eagles

would continue their downward

spiral of the two previous

games in which they

were thumped by state powerhouses

Bolingbrook and

Lincoln-Way East by a combined

score of 111-0.

Turn right, and Sandburg

could rekindle hopes of its

first state playoffs appearance

since 2015 and begin

to resemble the team that

opened this season with a

pair of non-conference victories.

Unfortunately for the

players, coaches and fans,

the Eagles made a wrong

turn.

Thornton used its speed

and athleticism to stun Sandburg

in the early going on its

way to a convincing 29-14

victory.

What may have contributed

to the Eagles’ change

in direction was the fact just

hours before preparing for a

road game, they were told

would be playing at home.

Earlier in the week Thornton

reported that its field

lights were not working. It

rescheduled the sophomore

game and moved the varsity

contest to 6 p.m. Then it was

moved to Sandburg.

“It was one of those weird

days,” said Sandburg Coach

Scott Peters. “They changed

the game time on us last

week and then all of a sudden

today we couldn’t play

at their field.

“Everything got thrown

off a bit. We had to scramble

around but sometimes that

happens and you just have

Sandburg’s Marvin Agwomoh, (right) pleads his case that he was interfered with in the

end zone by Thornton’s Jacquise Baylock (left). Agwomoh did not win the argument and

Sandburg did not win the game, as Thornton pulled off a 29-14 victory in Orland Park on

Friday night, Sept. 21. PHOTOS BY JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

to overcome the adversity.

They did a better job than

we did. They assumed they

were playing at home and

then they had to get in a bus

and travel.”

The Wildcats began the

game with a roar. On just

third play from scrimmage,

Thornton quarterback Derrick

Williams Jr. threw a perfect

spiral to a streaking Jacquice

Baylock, who caught

the ball in stride and raced

79 yards down the right sidelines

to the end zone. It gave

the Wildcats a 7-0 lead just

1:27 into the contest.

Thornton would go on to

score on its next two possessions.

First, running back Javante

White capped off an 11-play,

80-yard drive with a 7-yard

TD run before Williams Jr.

helped his team capitalize on

a Sandburg muffed punt return

and scored a touchdown

on a nifty 6-yard run up the

middle, leaving the score

21-0 at halftime.

It was 23-0 when the

Wildcats added a safety on

the first play of the second

half as a wild snap from

center sailed over Sandburg

quarterback Ben Starcevich’s

head through the back

of the end zone.

Finally, after failing to

score a single point in 12

straight quarters over four

games, the Eagles woke up.

Sandburg capped off an

impressive 81-yard drive

that featured 18 consecutive

running plays with a 6-yard

TD scamper by junior running

back Jalen Austin. Senior

Andrew Schab, who

led the Eagles with 86 yards

rushing on the night, picked

up 37 of those yards.

However, Thornton got

the momentum right back

as Baylock used his blazing

speed to race 34 yards for a

29-7 lead.

Still, Sandburg would not

give up.

The Eagles answered with

a 63-yard scoring drive. It

ended when Starcevich hit

wide receiver Rick Maziarka

with a 9-yard scoring pass

with 6:59 to play.

players during Friday night’s game in Orland Park.

Top Performers:

1. Jacquice Baylock, Thornton RB - 83 yards rushing, 85

receiving

2. Derrick Williams Jr., Thornton QB - 170 passing/rushing

yards

3. Ben Starcevich, Sandburg QB, 70 yards passing, TD

Although Sandburg recovered

the ensuing onside kick,

it was unable to score again.

“Those kids from Thornton

played hard and deserved

the victory. We knew

they had the big play potential.

They have some good

athletes,” said Peters.

“They came out and they

were physically better than

us in the first half, especially

early on. I thought our kids

came out a little flat. I’ve

got to do a better job getting

them ready to play.”

In order to find the right

road to the playoffs, the Eagles

must win three of their

next four games beginning

with a home contest with

Lincoln-Way West on Friday,

Sept. 28.

Sandburg soccer team honors Hall of Fame coach Ferraro

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

Sandburg’s soccer team

honored former coach Jack

Ferraro before a game with

District 230 rival Andrew

and then put on a good show

for him with a 2-0 victory on

Thursday, Sept. 20, in Orland

Park.

Colin Kroll and Yianni

Livieratos each had goals

and Connor Baker was in the

net for the Eagles.

Ferraro is an Illinois High

School Soccer Coaches

Association Hall of Fame

member who is retiring as a

social studies teacher at the

school in 2019. In 16 seasons

as the boss, his teams

were 312-102-19 with state

championships in 2001 and

2002.

“It was a great run and I

have a lot of good memories,”

he said. “It’s surreal.

I’ve been involved in four

state championships [two as

Sandburg’s head coach, one

as an assistant at Sandburg

and one as an assistant with

Hinsdale Central] and the

kids on those teams wanted

to win. They never put their

heads down . They had great

talent. I wouldn’t be getting

these accolades if it wasn’t

for my players.”

Tipping the odds from above

Was local golfer’s

hole-in-one divine

intervention?

Tim Yonke, Freelance Reporter

The late Jerome Cortez is honored by players on the

Andrew football team, along with two others, in a decal on

their helmets.

It is not easy to make a

hole-in-one.

In fact, actuaries at insurance

companies have calculated

the chance of an average

golfer making an ace on

the golf course at approximately

12,500 to 1.

As any golfer can attest,

there is certainly an element

of skill involved, but they

also will admit it takes a little

bit of luck.

Maybe in the case of

James Lapera’s good fortune,

there was some help

from above, as well.

A self-admitted “crazy”

golfer who normally plays

at least two or three times

a week, Lapera, a Tinley

Park resident who grew up

in Orland Park close to Silver

Lake Country Club, has

played less than a handful of

rounds since his brother and

neighbor, Jerome Cortez, 47,

died from a heart attack on

June 2. James and Jerome

were not only related but

also longtime golfing companions,

along with older

brothers Joe and Jason.

The sudden loss of his

brother caused James to put

his love for golf on hold.

“A lot of people would ask

me why I wasn’t playing,”

said James, 49, who was

adopted by the Cortez family

when he was an infant. “I

wasn’t in the mood. I never

had the urge to play after Jerome

died.”

Orland Park’s Felicitas

Cortez said of her brotherin-law,

“It was strange that

he hadn’t gone back to the

golf course, because he usually

plays quite a lot during

the summer. He loves golf.”

It took James until Sept.

14 before he decided to put

on his spikes and wander

over to Silver Lake to tee it

up again.

“I actually woke up that

day and finally felt like I

wanted to play again,” said

James, a certified public

accountant who called Silver

Lake and asked if there

was an opening in its Friday

men’s club league.

On the 106-yard fourth

hole on the North Course,

he decided to use a pitching

wedge and struck it perfectly

into the air toward the elevated

green.

“It felt good,” remarked

James, a 12 handicap. “[The

ball] landed past the hole

and drew back toward the

cup. My playing partner

Marty [Trokey] screamed,

‘It’s in the hole!’

“As I was driving up to the

hole in my cart, I started to

tear up, as I thought about

Jerome. I knew somebody

had to do that for me.”

Divine intervention?

That’s a distinct possibility,

since golf is more than

just a game for James and

his brothers. It’s a passion

they share.

“Golfing is a family thing

for us. Our dad [Emilio Cortez]

taught us the game when

we were all young,” James

said. “He loved it, and eventually

we all did, too.”

“Love” may be putting it

lightly. James is so infatuated

with the sport that he

turned his basement into a

golfing shrine, including

a putting green. It’s where

James and Jerome would often

retreat to after playing a

weekend round to talk about

life, family and, of course,

golf.

James was playing at Silver

Lake on June 23, 2000,

when he got a phone call on

the course. He was told his

father had been in an auto

accident. His dad died that

day.

It was in 2000 that James

and his three brothers organized

their own annual

“Orland Open” with some

of their friends and golfing

companions.

“It was a perfect way for

my brothers and I to continue

to bond,” James said.

The brothers often take

road trips together to places

Open trophy, a tournament that he and his siblings and friends formed in 2000.

all over the country, including

a renowned golf mecca:

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

James is the primary organizer,

and no matter how

many total players go, he

always plays at least one

round with his brothers. It’s

a tradition he said he hopes

to continue.

James said Jerome was a

popular lacrosse coach with

the Tinley Park Bulldogs and

helped start that program.

Jerome was an Andrew High

School graduate, and players

on the football team are

wearing decals with JC, LE

and AS in honor of Jerome,

late science teacher Lloyd

Eichwald and late supporter

of the football program Annie

Sanfilippo.

THURSDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK

Projecting football playoffs

now is folly, yet it’s still fun

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY

MEDIA

SOME NOTES ABOUT

SANDBURG’S (ABOVE)

NEXT FOOTBALL

OPPONENT, LINCOLN-

WAY WEST

1. Perennially playoffbound

The Warriors have

qualified for the

playoffs every year

in the 2010 decade.

They finished second

in the state in

Class 5A in 2015.

2. Trying to recover

West is gunning to

get back on the winning

track against

the Eagles after

suffering a 28-14

setback to state

power Homewood-

Flossmoor on Friday,

Sept. 21.

3. Last time

The Warriors beat

the Eagles, 27-13

last season as Caleb

Marconi turned

16, got his driver’s

license and ran for

115 yards against

Sandburg. The

game was knotted

at 6-6 at halftime.

Jeff Vorva

j.vorva@22ndcm.com

Food for thought for

those who aren’t very

hungry:

This is the most useless

information you will ever

need.

But it’s also the most

interesting.

After the first four weeks

of the football season, the

Illinois High School Association

number-crunchers

crunched some numbers

and set up playoff seedings

if the season ended then.

Well, obviously things

are going to change. Heck,

they changed after this

weekend’s action. All of

these seeds and potential

matchups are obsolete.

But, again, interesting.

Sandburg had just lost

games to Bolingbrook and

Lincoln-Way East by a

combined score of 111-0

to fall to 2-2. But if the

regular season would have

ended that weekend, the

Eagles would have been

one of the lucky 32 to make

it in Class 8A, as they

checked in at No. 26. They

would have hit the road

for a first-round game at

seventh-seeded Plainfield

South.

Fellow SouthWest Suburban

schools Homewood-

Flossmoor (seeded first in

Class 8A) and Lincoln-Way

East (seeded second) did

well. Seeds are based on total

record and a tiebreaker

of opponents’ wins.

Bolingbrook is seeded

16th.

In Class 7A, Andrew was

seeded 22nd to make the

playoffs for the second year

in a row. The Bolts’ reward

would have been a trip to

Villa Park for a battle with

Willowbrook in the first

round.

I have a little bad news

for Tinley Park High

School fans. The Titans

were 2-2 and seeded 33rd,

missing out on the playoff

by just one slot.

So there you have it.

The official pairings and

seeds will be announced by

the state on Oct. 20,

Until then, there will be

plenty of useless speculation.

And plenty of fun.

The right Stef

A bunch of Sandburg

volleyball players headed

to Romeoville on Sept. 15

to watch Lewis University’s

women’s team

beat Bellarmine in four

sets.

Sandburg graduate Caroline

Stefanon, a 5-foot-10

junior middle hitter, had six

kills, four blocks and three

digs for the national powerhouse

Lewis squad. Her

sister, 5-foot-11 freshman

outside hitter Abbie, had

three kills, one block and

one dig for Bellarmine.

The Eagles have two

Stefanon siblings on their

roster — junior twins

Shelby and Julia.

By George

Notre Dame star wide

receiver Miles Boykin, a

Tinley Park native, is getting

plenty of media attention

in South Bend.

He was recently profiled

on ABC57 by Allison

Hayes. Boykin credited the

inspiration of his brother,

George, for his approach

to the game. He told Hayes

that when his older brother’s

football career came

to an end at Providence

Catholic in 2011 because

of a head injury. Miles

switched his jersey number

to 81 in honor of George,

whose career is literally up

in the air as he is wrapping

up his aviation degree at

Lewis University.

If the high school football season would have ended in

Week 4, Sandburg’s Jacob Monnett and his teammates

would have been alive and kicking in the playoffs.

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

BOYKIN! NOT BOYKINS!!!

I figured that ever since

Miles Boykin made that

miraculous one-handed

grab in the Citrus Bowl

in January, maybe people

in the media would stop

calling him Boykins. It’s

bothered me for years.

My favorite radio station

in the world, WJOL, had

announcers that called him

Boykins all the time and I

would scream at the radio,

Anyway, Hayes let

a “Boykins” slip and I

growled a little when I

heard it. But I’ll let it pass,

because she did a great job

on the story.

Best name in the fall

My favorite name from

fall sports this season

comes from Bloom High

School. The Blazing Trojans

have a defensive football

player named Sincere

Moses.

Best excuse in the fall

The Waterloo cross

country team was not able

to make it to the First To

The Finish race in Peoria

on Sept. 8 because of a flat

tire.

LISTEN UP
