Northbrook community comes out for Autumnfest

Hilary Anderson

Freelance Reporter

The fall season is a favorite

time of year for

many in Northbrook.

And one reason why

is the Northbrook Park

District’s annual Autumn

Festival, held Saturday,

Oct. 13, at Meadowhill

Park.

The event continues to

have much to offer and

brings the community

closer together.

Northbrook families

and friends began streaming

into the park area soon

after it started. Mother

Nature helped by gracing

the community with

a cool but warmer day, no

rain, or threat of it and total

sunshine.

“We estimate there

were more than a thousand

people here at the

Meadowhill Park for the

Autumn Festival,” said

Katie Kotloski, of the

Northbrook Park District.

“The parking areas were

almost completely full all

afternoon.”

There was much to see

and do, including many

new attractions.

A seven-foot scarecrow

greeted guests as they

walked in and graciously

stood still for photos.

A special photo area featuring

items of the season

— cornstalks, pumpkins,

gourds and bales of hay —

arranged artfully so guests

could sit and capture their

memories of the day.

Across the field were inflatables

including a huge

haunted house. The long

line to enter the haunted

house was similar to one

for free popcorn from

the old-fashion popcorn

wagon, courtesy of Sunset

Foods.

Waiting outside was a

long line of youngsters

wanting to make that trip

into the haunted house

plus others who already

had done so.

Not far from the haunted

house was the balloon

man who knew how to

make huge spiders with

a big body and legs to

match it.

“This balloon man is

the best I have ever seen,”

said Tom Huske, who was

holding his daughter Aubrey’s

black spider along

with a sword.

There was a pumpkin

patch where youngsters

chose the perfect pumpkin,

decorating it at a

nearby tent and making it

an official jack-o-lantern.

The best-decorated pumpkin

at the end of the festival

received a prize. Harry

Hsu won first place in the

pumpkin decorating contest.

Close to the pumpkin

patch area, guests obtained

the necessary items

to toast marshmallows

by the bonfire and make

s’mores.

“Roasting marshmallows

is the greatest thing

ever,” said Mason Friedman,

7. “I like s’mores.”

His sister, Braedyn,

9, put part of a s’mores

into her mouth and could

barely talk with the melted

marshmallow she was

eating.

“This Northbrook Autumn

Festival is great,”

said Marcy Friedman,

their grandmother who

brought them to the event.

“The kids are having fun

and it is a blast.”

The microphone crackled

and two witches,

dressed appropriately for

the occasion, announced

they were about to start

Jack, and Sam Sweas, of Northbrook, smile with their

pumpkins.

another story time.

The witches, Heather

Benveniste and Holly

Weis, sisters who both

grew up in Northbrook,

have done park district

shows for the community.

They volunteered to be

storytellers for the event.

“We both went to Glenbrook

North,” said Weis,

an opthamologist by day.

“This kind of event

brings everyone together,”

said Benveniste, a

lawyer when not performing.

“This event is so awesome.”

Another crowd attraction

was the reptile show.

Also popular among the

youngsters were the crafts.

Face-painting still held

its popularity as was evident

by those in line waiting

their turn.

Families gather around the campfire.

Abby Andrews, 11, tried

the new Pumpkin Chuckin

game. It involved using

a big, person-size sling

shot and seeing how far

one could “fling” a small

pumpkin or gourd.

A traditional ride on the

hay wagon was a must

and enjoyed by all who

climbed aboard.

A relatively new game,

Pumpkin Soccer, attracted

a crowd of its own — and it

quickly was one of the most

sought-after activities.

Michael Schyman, a

Northbrook Park District

board member, enjoyed

the game’s fun nature with

his son, Ari.

“I love seeing the kids

having fun,” Schyman

said. “This Fall Festival

event provides a great experience

for everyone.”

Police Reports

Jewelry stolen from 2 Northbrook residences in 6-hour span

Greebo, Nora and Bella

The Gutman Family, of Northbrook

These three lovable kittens were all

adopted from Orphans of the Storm in

December of 2016. The Gutman family

went to the shelter to find 2 cats

and came home with 3 because Nora,

the smallest, came and sat between

Luci Gutman’s feet, so she could not

easily leave the room holding Greebo.

Luci thought, Nora must have loved

her, but found she was tightly bonded

to Greebo.

Bella, the slightly older and wiser

sister is sweet and tolerant with both

of them.

From Oct. 9

Helicopter lands at

Northbrook school

to transport burn

victim to hospital

Martin Carlino, Editor

A Flight for Life helicopter

landed at approximately

11:26 a.m. Oct. 9 at Northbrook’s

Field Middle School

to transport a burn victim in

the area to a local hospital, according

to school officials.

Per Northbrook Fire Chief

Andrew Carlson, the Northbrook

Fire Department was

called to Longvalley Drive

just before 11 a.m. for a burn

victim.

“Crews were directed to an

elderly male in the backyard

of a residence with severe

burns that appeared to be the

result of an accident while doing

yard work,” Carlson told

The Tower in an email.

According to District 31

Superintendent Dr. Alexandra

Nicholson, local officials

requested to use the school’s

field to transport the subject

from a ground ambulance to

a helicopter.

Nicholson confirmed the

burn victim was not any of

the school’s students or staff

members.

“It had nothing to do with

the school,” she told The Tower.

“No students or staff were

injured, but we allowed them

to use our property to transport

this person.”

The burn victim was transported

to a nearby burn center

in Maywood, Carlson said.

The cause and circumstances

are still under investigation.

Northbrook Village Board

Trustees generally support 86-unit development, with qualifiers

Chris Pullam

Freelance Reporter

Eighty-six townhomes

could be replacing the current

corporate offices for

Maurice Sporting Goods

to the east of Techny and

Shermer Roads.

The Northbrook Village

Board conducted a

preliminary review of the

proposed development,

located at 1910 Techny

Road, during its Tuesday,

Oct. 9 meeting.

Based on village staff’s

initial review, the area

would need to be rezoned

from an I-1 Restricted Industrial

District to an R-8

Multiple Family Residential

District. The applicant,

M/I Homes, also hopes to

build a private, two-way

drive connecting the various

buildings on the 11-

acre property.

M/I Homes would demolish

the existing onestory

office building and

replace it with a planned

development consisting

of 18 townhome buildings

with three to seven units

each. The development

would include multiple

individual driveways, plus

seven guest parking space

divided into two locations.

According to the board

packet, “The R-8 district is

predominantly intended to

provide a suburban environment

for development

utilizing various residential

building types, including

multiple family dwellings,

which may result in

higher densities than in

single-family developments.”

As proposed, the 86

units situated on 11.14

acres of land would result

in a density of 7.7 units per

acre.

The townhomes would

Eighty-six townhomes could be replacing the current corporate offices for Maurice Sporting Goods to the east

of Techny and Shermer Roads. Village Trustees first heard the proposal on Tuesday, Oct. 9. Rendering Courtesy

of the Village of Northbrook

appear to be two-stories

tall from the front, but

would be three-stories

high from the rear facade.

There would also be various

models with different

interior floor plans.

Specifically, units would

have either two or three

bedrooms and would range

in size from 1,810 to 2,350

square feet. The three-story

units would not exceed

35 feet in height and the

facades would use a combination

of architectural

shingles, brick and stone.

The townhome units

would cost approximately

$400,000-500,000.

“I think this is nice development

at that location,”

Trustee Karagianis

said. “I think townhomes

are a good idea there. Part

of what’s fueling that is the

idea that we’ll get more

population density closer

to downtown and that will

assist the health of our

downtown businesses.”

But, Karagianis finished

his assessment by asking

the Northbrook Plan Commission

to look at the proposed

development’s density,

consider the height

of the buildings relative to

the distance between them

to avoid a “canyon effect,”

and see if the private drive

could be converted into a

public roadway owned and

maintained by the Village.

Trustee A.C. Buehler

III agreed with Karagianis’s

recommendations but

voiced confidence that the

Plan Commission could

work through those details

with the developer.

Trustee Kathryn Ciesla

also voiced concern about

density but then showed

some support for the plan’s

private roadway because

the Village would be off

the hook for maintenance

costs, arguing that “to

extent that the Village of

Northbrook doesn’t have

to incur that added expense,

the better for us.”

She wasn’t as supportive

about the number of

guest parking spots.

“I don’t think parking is

adequate at all with seven

additional spaces,” she

said. “That’s really not

even a starter for me, so

the developer will have to

do a lot better in my mind.”

Trustee Robert Israel

also worried about the proposed

density, but mostly

because of its potential effect

on stormwater retention

and flooding.

Trustee Muriel Collison

was the fifth-straight trustee

to worry about the density,

but she spent most of

her time discussing the implications

of having only

seven guest parking spots.

“If you’re talking about

two or three bedrooms

and 86 units, and that’s

presumably going to have

families and kids with

friends and parties, it’s

nowhere near enough for

me,” she said.

She also brought up the

traffic concerns that could

arise with adding a housing

development so close

to the railroad tracks,

which already slow passing

vehicles.

The development’s biggest

criticism came from

Trustee Jason Han, who

doesn’t believe the property

should be rezoned,

which would immediately

kill the proposal.

“I think it should stay

R-1,” he said. “I drive

down Techny Road at least

four to five times a week

[and] I would comment

on traffic. Just to the east

of the development is that

iconic underpass where the

trains go through and it’s

a bottleneck. … It seems

[Maurice Sporting Goods]

was a great tenant there

and it would be great to

keep it industrial or commercial.”

Village President Sandy

Frum voiced overall support

for the proposal, especially

considering that the

development wouldn’t require

any variations other

than the private drive. She

also praised the price of

the units.

“I also think what is attractive

about this is the

price point, which no one

has talked about,” she

said. “And when we see

the kinds of houses being

built in Northbrook

in other places, and we’re

talking about milliondollar

homes, it’s really

nice to see homes that are

looking at coming in at

the [$400,000-500,000]

range. And its important

to acknowledge that as

you drop units, you go up

in price. So sometimes we

need to trade off.”

The board will reassess

the proposal at a future

meeting after the Plan

Commission gives its assessment.

Northbrook Village Board

Northbrook workers to gain paid sick leave in 2019

Chris Pullam

Freelance Reporter

Last summer, Northbrook

workers watched

from the sideline as some

of their neighbors secured

paid sick leave and a higher

minimum wage through

a Cook County ordinance.

Cape Models

3 & 4 Bedrooms

About 15 months later,

they claimed victory on

the first front.

The Northbrook Village

Board voted 6-1 on

Tuesday, Oct. 9, to negate

its 2017 decision to sidestep

the county’s paid sick

leave ordinance, which

states that employees are

that they have a clean slate

to begin tracking hours.

“I’m very happy to have

this vote this evening,”

Trustee Muriel Collison

said. “Obviously it’s something

I’m very proud of and

I feel it only continues my

long-held belief that Northbrook

is the very best place

to live and raise a family

and work. I’m hopeful that

other communities will follow

our lead and consider

opting into this ordinance.

... I really feel passionately

about this and I hope employers

will look past the

dollars and cents and really

see the value of having

employees who know their

health and wellness, and

the health and wellness of

their families, matter.”

Trustee A.C. Buehler,

who cast the lone dissenting

vote, chose not to speak

following the decision, but

during the board’s previous

meeting, he argued

that the Village should

avoid “regulating certain

types of employee activity

within businesses.”

“I don’t think it’s the

Village’s purview to get

involved in this,” he said.

“I still think the state

needs to take the lead on

this, whether they’re doing

it or whether they’re

not. I think it’s a dangerous

precedent for the Village

... It’s something we

haven’t done before and

I’m not really ready to go

down that path.”

No one from the public

spoke for or against the ordinance.

In May 2017, Collison

and Jason Han were the

only trustees to vote in favor

of the paid sick leave

ordinance. Only Han voted

to adopt Cook County’s

“I’m very happy to have this

vote this evening. Obviously

it’s something I’m very proud

of and I feel it only continues

my long-held belief that Northbrook

is the very best place to

live and raise a family and work.

I’m hopeful that other communities

will follow our lead and

consider opting into this ordinance...”

—Northbrook Village Trustee Muriel Collison

on her decision to support the village reapplying

Cook County’s paid sick leave ordinance.

ROUND IT UP

A brief recap of Village Board action on Tuesday,

Oct. 9.

• The board approved a $78,961 contract with

American Underground, of Wheeling, to perform

sewer television and manhole inspections to determine

if sections of the system should be repaired.

• Trustees authorized the $35,500 purchase of

110 parkway trees for the 2018 fall planting program

through the Suburban Tree Consortium.

• The board allowed the Village to remove 14 landmark

and two heritage trees at 32 Bridlewood Road

to allow for the construction of a new single-family

home on the property.

• Trustees approved a five-year maintenance extension

with Spillman Technologies to support the Police

Department Computer Aided Dispatch System.

• The board authorized the purchase of eight

tasers from TASER International to replace eight

expiring devices.

which hasn’t been readdressed

by the Northbrook

Village Board.

Trustees James Karagianis

and Robert Israel originally

voted against guaranteeing

With more than 250 attendees

making their way

to Northbrook Court,

vendors at Active Aging

— An Expo for Ages 50+

were pleased to have a

perfect venue to share information

about their businesses

with the local community

Saturday, Oct. 13,

in Northbrook.

“This is the fifth year

that we’ve done this event.

It’s important to recognize

the aging population in our

community,” said Heather

Warthen, chief operating

officer at 22nd Century

Media, expo presenter and

parent company of The

Tower. “We brought together

a great group of

vendors that offer a variety

of resources for those actively

aging or children of

parents who are in that age

group.”

For the first time, the

expo was staged at Northbrook

Court, which was

also a popular venue

choice for 22nd Century

Media’s Camp Expo, held

in February. The expo was

located near the lower level

of Macy’s and ran from

10 a.m.-2 p.m.

“Northbrook Court is a

great central location off

of Lake Cook Road, easy

to find,” Warthen said. “So

far, people have been excited

with some showing

up as early as 8:30.”

The variety of vendors

at the expo ran the gamut

from real estate, financial

advisors, health and fitness

to home improvement,

performing arts and more.

One of those vendors

was FreshSkin Medical

Spa & Wellness Center,

who were at the expo for

the first time this year. Describing

itself as an aesthetic

and anti-aging center

for men and women,

FreshSkin has been located

in downtown Highland

Park since 2011.

“We’re based in functional

medicine. We focus

on optimizing the body so

that you have healthy skin

and a healthy body,” said

Jenna Radivojevic, who

does community outreach

for the company. “We

typically see patients that

come to us that have gone

to other doctors who have

told them they’re okay, but

they still feel off.”

Eric DeGrechie/22nd Century Media

Academy of the Performing

Arts was also making

its expo debut. Owner Pamela

Sue Fox discussed

the many offerings at

SNAP including music,

dance classes and performance

opportunities for

age 2 and up.

“Our performing company

performs for free for

seniors all over Chicago,”

Fox said. “In addition, I’m

a singer and offer my services

as well.”

Attendees Judy Weintraub,

of Northbrook, and

her mother, Debbi Kaylegjan,

were making their

way around the expo.

“I’m very happy with

this event and have a lot

more hope than I had before,”

Weintraub said. “We

were actually just shopping

in the mall and ran into it.”

Marlene Schwan, a resident

of Highland Park, is

an owner of Compassionate

Care Consulting, out of

Bannockburn. The company’s

mission is to provide

a safe, professional setting

for patients to gain safe, legal

access to medical cannabis.

“There’s been a lot of

curiosity as to what we

do and how medical marijuana

may help or not help

them,” Schwan said. “People

with any of a number of

medical conditions qualify

for their medical marijuana

card and we help them

through the process.”

Andrew Erickson, who

works at an Edward Jones

office that has been in

Winnetka for 15 years,

was pleased with the event

as he set up appointments

to help people navigate

their retirement plans.

“The stock market was

very volatile last week, so

many people want to talk

about that and figure out

strategies to protect their

money,” Erickson said.

Lake Forest’s Wellness

Solutions does a little bit of

everything from physical

therapy, pilates, reiki and

tuning fork healing, vibrational

singing bowls, laser

and sauna. Established in

2006, the company lives

by the mantra “Feel Better,

Age Smarter,” and especially

prides itself on assisting

older citizens.

“I think we’re a bit more

integrative because we

bring other modalities in,”

said Tina Ashbeck, of Lake

Bluff, a licensed physical

therapist. “We’re not just

looking at the body, but the

mind and spirit.”

Northbrook resident pioneers home maintenance internet company

Neil Milbert

Freelance Reporter

Northbrook’s Allen Shulman

believes we’re all in this together.

He has put his philosophy

of life into practice by starting

DwellSocial, an internet company

that is a vehicle for connecting

with friends and neighbors

for an easier, less-stressful and

more cost-effective way of getting

things done.

DwellSocial specializes in

home maintenance.

“We believe DwellSocial can

fundamentally change the way

people think about taking care

of their homes,” said Shulman,

who left Angie’s List to partner

with his co-founders, Highland

Park’s Mike Cerna, and Daniela

Tomas, of Chicago, in the summer

of 2017.

“We all have to do the same

things to properly maintain our

homes. When we do it on our

own there’s the pain in the rear

end factor. DwellSocial lets us

do all the things we need to do

together.”

DwellSocial membership is

free for consumers, while contractors

pay $25 monthly. When

you log onto dwellsocial.com

you’ll see a menu of what Shulman

calls “open groups” that

show what neighbors are doing

with regard to home maintenance.

Currently, there are

18 groups on the North Shore

from Evanston to Lake Bluff

but most of the members are

from Highland Park, Deerfield,

Northbrook and Glenview.

“Click the group you want

and you’re in,” Shulman said.

“You’ll see which contractors

are recommended. Right now

if you went to dwellsocial.com

you’d see there is a tree-trimming

group, a carpet-cleaning

group, a gutter-cleaning group,

a window washing-group, a

new-carpet installation group

and a sewer-routing group.

“We provide a platform for

contractors. Once they’re on

the platform they have access

to the groups. They can get five

jobs in one, eight jobs in one, 10

jobs in one, which is why they

can give the discount. “We find

great contractors and provide

them with opportunities they

can’t find anywhere else. When

people recommend a contractor

we let the contractor know.”

Before launching DwellSocial,

Shulman, Cerna and Tomas

all had a wealth of experience

that they acquired by working

with contractors and working

for firms offering discounts.

Shulman’s father was a professor

at Michigan State University

and he grew up in East

Lansing, Mich. before going to

college at the University of California/San

Diego.

However, he had grandparents

from Chicagoland and after

college he came to the area to

learn the construction business

by working for his father’s firm,

Red Seal Homes. He met his future

wife Debby, a Northbrook

native who went to Glenbrook

North and they settled in Northbrook.

“I enjoyed working for Red

Seal but I felt passionate about

doing something on my own,”

he said. “I started NorthStar

Homes and was a custom builder

all over the North Shore for

15 years. That’s where I started

interacting with contractors and

working with home owners and

learning what they don’t understand

about taking care of their

homes.

“Based on my experience

with NorthStar Homes, I founded

the Internet (home maintenance)

company BrightNest in

2010. We helped people know

what they should do, when they

should do it and how to do it.

We would provide that information

based on where they lived

in the country and customized

a digest for them that came out

every Friday at 9 a.m.”

In 2013 Angie’s List — which

refers home owners to plumbers,

roofers, electricians, heating

and air-conditioning firms,

Northbrook resident Allen Shulman started DwellSocial, a home

maintenance internet company. Photo Submitted

“We believe DwellSocial can fundamentally

change the way people think

about taking care of their homes. We

all have to do the same things to properly

maintain our homes. When we do

it on our own there’s the pain in the

rear end factor. DwellSocial lets us do

all the things we need to do together.”

-Northbrook resident Allen Shulman on DwellSocial,

a home-maintenance company he and two co-founders

started.

painters, plumbers, remodelers

and other home maintenance

specialists — acquired Bright-

Nest. Shulman stayed on as an

employee for four years “learning

about the business and trying

to help consumers.”

“I realized in 2017 that even

though Angie’s List and all of

its competitors were out there

people still weren’t taking better

care of their homes,” he said.

“They only went to Angie’s List

when something went wrong. I

decided to start DwellSocial because

I understood the power of

recommendations from people

we know and trust. We needed

to drop the pain in the rear factor

to the point where people

couldn’t help being a good

home owner.

“That’s when I met Mike and

realized he was the perfect partner.”

The Highland Park entrepreneur

is both an architect and a

software developer.

Cerna said his first major Internet

endeavor came in 2006

when he was co-founder of thepoint.com,

a social collective

empowerment site.

“It had lots of facets, like

getting new parks in neighborhoods,”

the Chicagoland native

said. “It rose and fell and

in 2008 I pivoted to Groupon

(as one of its founding fathers)

and it exploded (in popularity).

After Groupon, I worked

on several other projects with

my friend, Jim Sayegh (a Chicago

real estate developer).

We started glosser.com, doing

something similar to BrightNest

but with a different angle. It was

about what you can do to show

off your home.

“Most people show their assets

on Linked In and Facebook

but they almost never show off

their home which is their biggest

financial asset. There was

a problem with photography

rights so we abandoned that effort.

Right after that I was thinking

about what would be next

and someone introduced me to

Allen.”

Tomas was the next to join the

DwellSocial management team.

“I worked with her at Angie’s

List and she was a rock star,”

Shulman said. “Her expertise is

working with the best contractors

in the country and based on

that experience she helped Mike

and I formulate the DwellSocial

concept. We raised $780,000,

mostly from local firms. About

four months ago we hired another

computer technology engineer,

Joe Harrow, of Chicago,

who had worked with Mike as

one of the leaders at Groupon.

“Then, we hired a part-time

employee out of Denver, John

Feustel, who was at Groupon

early, and went from being an

engineer to being a programmer.”

Although there currently are

only four full-timers and one

part-timer at DwellSocial, Shulman

and Cerna believe they’re

on the cusp of something big.

“The web-site that we have

has the power to revolutionize

an entire segment of the Internet,”

Shulman said. “The company

that acquired Angie’s List

released a survey about a year

ago that said 90 percent of all

professional referrals are still

done off line.

“We’re looking to raise $1.5

million to $2 million so that

in the course of the next year

we can expand from the North

Shore to the Chicago metropolitan

area at which point we’ll

likely get the attention of a lot

of investors and be able to go

nationwide and worldwide. The

power of this concept works

anywhere people live together.”

Martin Carlino, Editor

Although Glenbrook

North graduate Noah

Weisberg is in the midst of

his starring role in “Charlie

and the Chocolate Factory,”

he still considers returning

to his alma mater a

priority.

The former Spartan returned

to GBN Thursday,

Oct. 11 to speak with current

GBN students, answer

their questions and share

pieces of his advice.

Weisberg, who has already

performed in four

different Broadway productions,

is currently performing

the role of Willy

Wonka in the production.

The show is currently running

at Chicago’s Oriental

Theatre, and plays through

Oct. 21.

The show is under the

direction of three-time

Tony Award-winner, Jack

O’Brien, and boasts a cast

filled with Broadway experience.

Current GBN students

had two chances to visit

with Weisberg on Oct. 11,

both nearly an hour long.

Students — some interested

in pursuing music, some

interested in performing

arts — asked Weisberg for

advice on making it in the

tough industry.

Weisberg encouraged

student to give 100 percent

in whatever path they decide

to pursue and said to

never get discouraged by

rejection, because it has

often happened to him.

“For every one role I do

get, I probably hear no 99

other times,” he told the

students.

A group of GBN students

will even get the

chance to see Weisberg

perform in the production

Weisberg answers a question from a student.

live before it moves onto

its next stop. The chance to

perform in his hometown,

in front of his friends and

family, is something Weisberg

truly cherishes.

“It’s been great — the

audiences in Chicago have

been really great and they

seem to be responding really

well and it’s really

nice every night to come

out of the stage door and

not just see family but see

friends,” he said “I grew

up seeing shows at the Oriental

Theatre, where we’re

doing the show, so to look

out at those very seats that

I sat in as a kid, it’s pretty

awe-inspiring.”

Tickets for productions

of the show are still available

and can be purchased

online at Broadway in Chicago’s

website.

THE WINNETKA CURRENT

Man rescued from capsized

boat at Winnetka’s Lloyd

Beach

A boater called Winnetka

authorities to report

he was in distress around

2 p.m. Oct. 9 after his boat

capsized at Lloyd Beach in

Winnetka.

The Winnetka Fire Department

rescue crews

spotted the boater, who

reportedly sat on top of his

boat, about three-quarters

of a mile out from the

Lloyd Beach boat launch,

799 Sheridan Road, according

Winnetka Fire

Chief Alan Berkowsky.

Rescue efforts included

local police and fire departments,

and the coast

guard out of Wilmette,

which was called at 2:06

p.m. Ten minutes later,

rescue teams made contact

with one boat occupant,

who resides in Winnetka.

“Anytime we get a call

with someone in trouble

in Lake Michigan, we

have a pretty substantial

response,” Berkowsky

said. “We try to first rescue

the person off the surface

first.”

Crews attempted to upright

the boat, which was

an 18-foot catamaran, after

the man was brought to

safety, Berkowsky said.

“Unfortunately, [the

boat] was caught in the

sand and it was caught in

the water, so we had to

leave the boat as is,” he

said, adding the strong

southwest winds were “deceiving”

from the shoreline.

The boat, which eventually

sank, will be salvaged

by a company that works

on Lake Michigan in the

coming days.

The boater didn’t suffer

any injuries from the incident.

The Glencoe Grand Prix

David Metrick, president

of the Glencoe Grand

“There have been a lot

The race cancellation

was announced on its website,

saying in part: “After

much discussion among

the leadership over the

NBJH musicians audition for

state honor band

Six Northbrook Junior High

musicians recently auditioned

for the ILMEA District 7 Honor

Band. These students put in

many extra hours to prepare the

audition material, and deserve

commendation for being among

the top musicians in northern Illinois.

Preparing to audition for this

festival is a great learning experience,

and acceptance is a true

achievement. This year Caroline

Gross, seventh grade, clarinet,

was selected to perform in the

Honor Band.

Others who auditioned include

Christina Peters, Anna Huelke,

Natalie Hong, Abby Reese, Nate

Muhl.

More than 500 students from

61 schools strive to be selected

for this prestigious concert band.

The ILMEA District 7 Junior

Festival features a 150-piece ensemble

of the finest junior high

musicians in the Northeastern Illinois

area.

The ILMEA District 7 Honor

Band rehearses and performs together

once, all on the same day!

On Saturday, Nov. 3, selected

students will meet at Wauconda

High School to work with a special

guest conductor and then

perform a concert at 2 p.m.

The Walk for Wescott School

is the PTO’s biggest fundraiser,

and all students participated

also had the opportunity to win

prizes. Top earners won event

tickets, and one winner was chosen

donations were eligible for a

big-ticket raffle.

Working together, students

had the chance to win extra recess

or physical education classes,

and/or Popsicle parties for

their whole class.

An awards and recognition

assembly took place on Oct. 10

in the gymnasium. The crossing

guards honored were: Lorraine

600 pairs of shoes were collected

between October 1-5, and then

donated to the Share Your Soles

organization.

Megan Brooks was thanked

for helping to organize another

A

always be grateful for your

unyielding commitment to

the sport and to our event.

Thank you.”

The Glencoe Grand Prix

began in 2007, attracting

more than 500 elite and

novice bicyclists and thousands

of bystanders to the

Village of Glencoe every

summer. More importantly,

it has raised more than

$250,000 for the Glencoe

Educational Foundation,

Metrick said.

“Our mission was to

fund high-end technology

for the (Glencoe) school

district,” Metrick added.

“That is how the [Glencoe

Educational Foundation]

was founded 15 to 16

years ago. ... We [funded]

all the smartboards, all

the teacher laptops in the

jack-o’-lantern?

As we have done with

similar contests, such as

the family vacation contest

and the Father’s Day

photo contest, the winning

entry will be featured in

The Tower.

To get into the spirit

of Halloween, us editors

here at 22nd Century

Media tested out our own

pumpkin-carving skills

last week. With not much

pumpkin-carving experience

under my belt, I

would have to say I was

proud of the finished

pumpkin that myself and

Glenview Lantern editor

Jason Addy worked on.

A picture of our pumpkin

(left center) can be seen to

the side of this editorial.

But, neither myself

or Jason is a resident of

school, and now they have

their own budget. From

the GEF standpoint, we

did it.”

Without the need to fund

the technology budget gap

in District 35, the foundation

will call for donations

“one or two times a year”

for sister school partnerships,

Metrick said. There

will also be revamping of

the foundation board and

its mission.

Wilmette Park Board

opposes elimination of

10th hole at Canal Shores

The Wilmette Park

Board signaled its opposition

to an easement request

that would eliminate

the 10th hole of the Canal

With that sentiment,

The Tower is looking for

There is no limit to what

your pumpkin can be. The

only restriction is that the

must reside in Northbrook

and the pumpkin must be

decorated this year.

To accommodate those

who save pumpkincarving

for the photos is noon

left to submit.

The 61-foot wide,

Fall play a glimpse into life’s relationships

Sarah Haider

Freelance Reporter

Love played out on

stage at Glenbrook North’s

production of “Almost,

Maine” Oct. 11-13 at The

Sheely Center for the Performing

Arts.

The show gives a

glimpse into moments of

life and human relationships

through eight vignettes

occurring between

8:50-9:00 p.m. in the fictional

town of Almost,

Maine, on the night of the

Aurora Borealis.

“I like to say that if you

take love, relationships

and you shoot it through

a prism and you break it

up into its possible component

parts, that’s what’s

being explored in this story,”

director Gerald Nevin

said. “Some of them are

very funny and some make

you cry. All of them have a

surprise element where the

characters come to an extraordinary

life-changing

event, a direction-changing

event that is usually

brought forth in the form

of a surprise.”

The eight scenes include

a new romance forming

after love lost, the longing

and conflict between a relationship

left in the past,

a marriage proposal, and

a love that can never be.

Each scene features twoto-three

actors exploring

the fine details of the ups

and downs of what a life

with love entails.

“It’s given them a better

opportunity to do very indepth

scene work than a lot

of them have had,” Nevin

said. “It’s been extraordinary

to watch them devour

and grow with it. They do

a lot of productions here

and they do very good

work, but ... it’s a different

level of what is expected.

We have 17 actors and

they all are in an important

play and the story couldn’t

be told without them. They

are not expendable and it’s

a good feeling to have.”

Nevin has worked at

GBN as speech coach for

more than seven years.

Now in his first director

role at the school, Nevin

brought years of professional

directing and acting

experience to the popular

play.

The play takes place

on a smaller, bare-boned

theatre-in-the-round stage,

where audiences sit on the

school’s main stage for an

intimate performance. For

Nevin, who is a Feldenkrais

practitioner, studying

the way humans move

through space, students

were taught to use their

bodies as their tool to act

from every angle.

“It’s just the two people

on stage,” student director

Abigail Tzinberg said.

“There is more of an intimate

relationship and they

really needed to figure

out their chemistry. They

have really made an effort

to get to know their scene

partners and they have all

been really enthusiastic

about watching the show.

Everyone has been pretty

fantastic throughout this

process.”

Actors rehearsed for

six weeks, preparing their

segmented scenes twice

a week when Nevin and

Tzinberg would alternate

as director.

Treating the play as

eight individual parts allowed

flexibility in rehearsal

schedules for many

of the actors to simultaneously

take part in GBN’s

student-run one-act plays.

In the final weeks before

the show, Nevin stitched

the scenes together “like a

quilt work,” allowing the

eight parts come together

in one fictional night under

the Northern Lights.

“The degree of professionalism

that these kids

bring to this is astounding,”

Nevin said. “I have

been in a lot of different

theaters around that aren’t

[and on the stage]. It’s

been pleasure to watch.”

The students found

sanctuary in creating the

show, according to the junior

Tzinberg. With the

stress of the fall semester

and recent security scares,

students have consistently

been at rehearsals eager to

create the passion project

to share with the community.

The show has created

a “fantastic” community

among the students involved

and Tzinberg hopes

the performances have

spread the connection,

causing audience members

to leave the show and tell

someone in their life that

they love them.

“This show is not about

cliches,” Tzinberg said.

“This show is about people

living their lives that have

love in them. It’s not just

sugar and sweet. There is

the nitty-gritty of having a

relationship with someone

when you love them.”

Jasper’s Cafe menu is ‘large and in charge’

Glenview

restaurant focuses

on community

Alyssa Groh

Contributing Editor

Jasper’s Cafe originally

opened in Glenview about

23 years ago. But, through

a series of ownership

changes, the restaurant was

later changed into Hamilton’s.

When Chris Kappos

learned there was an opportunity

to become owner

of the original building that

was in his family years

ago and turn Hamilton’s

back into Jasper’s Cafe, he

jumped at the challenge.

Six years ago, Kappos

reopened his family’s restaurant

and continued the

tradition of Jasper’s Cafe.

Kappos has always been

in the restaurant industry

and had a vision for what

Jasper’s Cafe would become.

He wanted to keep

most of it the same but really

hit home the idea of

being a part of the community.

“He wanted this to be a

really cozy place for the

community, where everyone

can come to and feel at

home,” said Pamela Tousis,

the general manager at Jasper’s

Cafe.

Since joining the team

at Jasper’s two years ago,

Tousis said everyone is

friends at the cafe.

The staff at Jasper’s supports

the community and is

constantly giving back and

donating to local organizations,

Tousis added.

“Chris wanted [Jasper’s]

to be the community restaurant,”

Tousis said. “He

is really big about donating

to everyone that comes in

and supporting the community.

We want to make sure

we are here for them.”

Since its opening, the

restaurant now welcomes a

lot of regulars, Tousis said,

and at any given time, she

knows 90 percent of the

people in the restaurant.

She also added that much

of the staff at Jasper’s is the

original staff, which helps

create a family feel and

consistent food, which is a

priority at the restaurant.

Jasper’s Cafe offers an

extensive breakfast and

lunch menu, which Tousis

said is “large and in

charge.”

The food is made fresh

daily with high-quality

products, which is part of

the restaurant’s mission

“to consistently provide

our customers with highquality

fresh food and deliver

impeccable service

by demonstrating warmth,

graciousness, efficiency,

knowledge, professionalism

and integrity to our

work.”

22nd Century Media

staff stopped into Jasper’s

to try some of the food, and

with a large menu, we left

it up to Tousis to choose

some fan-favorite menu

items.

We could not get enough

of the fresh strawberry

crepes ($9.95) dusted in

powdered sugar. With each

bite, it is easy to taste the

freshness of the strawberries,

and the homemade

crepes set the dish apart

from the rest.

We also tried the Iron

Man omelette ($11.45),

which is an egg-white omelette

made with spinach,

mushrooms and low-fat

mozzarella cheese. This

“large and in charge” omelette

fits perfectly with the

rest of the menu.

One unique dish at the

restaurant is the stuffed

avocado with chicken

salad ($10.95). The dish,

which can also be ordered

with tuna salad ($11.95), is

served with tomatoes and a

mound of cottage cheese,

fruit and hard-boiled egg.

and looking for a healthier

option, this is the dish for

you.

A great comfort-food

option is Jasper’s hot turkey

($9.95), made with

roast turkey slices on white

bread smothered in gravy

and served with homemade

mashed potatoes and a cup

of soup.

The options at Jasper’s

are endless. Whether customers

are looking for

breakfast or lunch items,

there is sure to be something

for every type of

diner.

RIGHT: The hot turkey dish

($9.95) comes with roast

turkey slices on white

bread smothered in gravy,

served with homemade

mashed potatoes and a

cup of soup.

Jasper’s pumpkin pancakes are a seasonal favorite for

a lot of the restaurant’s loyal customers.

The lox plate ($15.95) is piled high with smoked salmon,

sliced tomato, cucumber, red onion and served with a

bagel and cream cheese.

The Iron Man omelette ($11.45) is an egg-white omelette

with spinach, mushrooms and low-fat mozzarella

cheese.

North finishes strong at conference meet

Submitted content

Glenbrook North put in a

strong showing at the CSL

Conference Championship

Meet on Saturday, Oct. 13,

to hold onto a fourth place

north division finish for the

season.

Highland Park edged out

Deerfield for the North division

conference crown

with Vernon Hills squeaking

past the Spartans for

third place. Maine West

and Maine East rounded

out the North division competition,

finishing fifth and

sixth, respectively.

Head coach Bill Race

was optimistic coming into

the meet as several Spartan

runners notched personal

record times in last few

weeks.

“We’ve had a good two

weeks of training,” Race

said, “and while a couple of

our varsity guys are banged

up and nursing nagging injuries,

I don’t expect any of

that to deter our resilience

or to alter our approach.”

GBN converted its hard

work into a solid performance,

with two runners

— senior co-captain Dana

Sullivan and sophomore

Nick Redstone — earning

all-conference honors

with top 14 finishes. Sullivan

finished 12th overall

in 16 minutes, 23.8 seconds

while Redstone crossed the

finish line in 16:26.8, good

for 14th place.

Junior co-captain Tim

St. John (16:29.5) and fellow

junior Michael Kruse

(16:32.0) finished in 15th

and 17th place, respectively,

while Senior Caleb Kim

rounded out GBN’s top five

runners with a 27th-place

finish in 17:08.9.

“The team’s performance

today was actually kind of

spectacular,” said Sullivan.

“The conditions were favorable

for a great race even

though we all have little

aches and pains at this point

near the end of the season.

Tim and Nick and Michael

were right with me going

into the last 400 meters and

that just proves how strong

we are as a team. My own

teammate Nick Redstone

passed me near the end and

really pushed me. I thought

to myself, ‘OK let’s battle

this one out,’ and that is

true teamwork because he

helped me to a great finish.”

Race agreed with Sullivan’s

assessment. “Overall

I thought the team competed

very well, they helped

each other and they worked

well as a team,” remarked

Race. “It was a pretty good

day for the Spartans.”

GBN had several strong

efforts in the other conference

races. In the two-mile

freshman competition,

five Spartans cracked the

top ten, including Joshua

record time of 16:59.0.

Playing on the road at

Park Ridge, the Junior

Spartans Red team (5-0)

had yet another strong

performance in the rain.

After allowing a touchdown

on the first drive,

the Junior Spartans defense

did not let up a point

the rest of the game. Highlighted

by an interception

returned for a touchdown

by Bobby Yang, the Spartans

defense did not miss

a beat from the previous

two weeks.

The Spartans offense

started strong scoring a

touchdown on the team’s

first two drives of the

game. Josh Raju the Spartans

first half quarterback

connected with Max Leboyer

through the air for

the first touchdown of

the game. The next drive

saw Vincent Serra taking

the ball into the end zone

for the Spartans. The second

half offense looked

just as strong. With many

people contributing to the

cause the Spartans controlled

the time of possession

throughout the whole

game.

Sandlow, Spartans shine at conference meet

Submitted content

With one of the strongest

lineups in recent years,

Glenbrook North put in a

strong performance at the

Central Suburban League

Championships on Saturday,

Oct. 13.

Falling only to a dominant

Vernon Hills squad,

the Spartans defeated perennial

powers Deerfield

and Highland Park to finish

a strong second in the

CSL North to close out the

conference season.

The meet, which was

run on Deerfield’s winding

three-mile course, featured

the top-seven runners from

each of the conference’s

12 teams in a head-to head

showdown, with conference

titles on the line in

each of the north and south

divisions.

Five Spartans earned

All-Conference honors by

placing in the top 14 overall,

led by sophomore Natalie

Sandlow, who once

again shined as one of the

top runners in the state by

winning the North crown

in 17 minutes, 48.6 seconds.

GBN’s other all-conference

performers were

junior Alexandra Chertok,

who finished in sixth place

with a time of 19:02.6, senior

Sarah Sandlow (ninth

place in 19:10.4), junior

Chloe MacMillin (12th

place in 19:30.8) and senior

Carly Harris (14th

place in 19:50.8).

Head coach Bob LeBlanc

was very pleased with

the team’s performance.

“Having all five of our

scoring runners make allconference

is a pretty impressive

accomplishment,

Glenbrook North’s Sarah

Sandlow competes in the

Central Suburban League

North conference meet on

Saturday, Oct. 13. photo

especially since there are

only 14 all-conference

spots available,” LeBlanc

said. “Natalie Sandlow is

one of the best runners we

have ever had at GBN and

she has run consistently

well and our next four or

five runners have really

improved dramatically this

year to help our team’s

performance. Our runners

did just what they were

supposed to do in this race

— they ran hard and took

care of business.”

The runners themselves

knew they had worked

hard coming in to the meet

and were thrilled with the

overall results. “I feel very

lucky to be part of a team

with five all-conference

girls,” said Sarah Sandlow.

“In my four years running

at GBN I have not seen

that, so it is an amazing

feeling. Everyone had a

good race today.”

Top performers in other

races included freshman

Kelsey Lundgaard, who

posted a personal record

time of 21:04.5 – good for

an eighth-place finish in

the freshman/sophomore

race.

Spartans battle Scouts, adversity in Senior Night win

Michal Dwojak, Sports Editor

Joey Martens and Glenbrook

North didn’t let adversity

get in the way of an

important win.

The Spartans trailed

twice and gave up a lead

in the final portion of its

Senior Night against Lake

Forest on Thursday, Oct.

11, in what seemed like

another match GBN would

let get away. But Martens

and the Spartans fought

back, with the junior stealing

the show with 1 minute,

25 seconds left in the

match when he knocked

a deflected ball into the

Scouts’ net to give his

team a 5-4 win.

The match was far from

anything either team wanted

to see in the last match

before the start of the playoffs,

but the Spartans knew

they needed to continue

to fight as they started a

stretch they hope can turn

into a long playoff run.

“We knew we had to do

it for the seniors,” senior

Sam Sullivan said. “We

need to keep the energy

high and we couldn’t get

down on ourselves.”

Lake Forest started off

hot against GBN, forcing

the Spartans into early errors

in the first half. Aved

Markarian scored off a

shot from around 30 yards

after the Spartans turned

the ball over, giving the

Scouts an early lead. Both

teams exchanged attempts

for much of the first half

before a Spartan yellow

card gave Oliver Akintade

a penalty kick, which he

scored on with 19:59 left

in the first half.

The Spartans started to

respond after its 2-0 deficit.

Just over a minute later,

Lake Forest commited

(right) fight off a Lake Forest player on Thursday, Oct. 11, in Northbrook. Michal

Dwojak/22nd Century Media

a penalty, giving Sullivan

a penalty kick chance that

he converted on. GBN

continued to push the ball

up against Lake Forest

with a few questionable

calls before Joey Martens

responded, tying the game

his first time on a breakaway

with 3:40 left in the

first half.

Both team exchanged

goals to start the second

half — Alan Cechrez and

Nico Fillips for the Scouts

and Max Marquez Konrad

Kulesza for the Spartans

— but the Spartans continued

to fight and Martens

helped lead to the heroics.

“We were a little sloppy,”

Lake Forest head

coach Rob Perry said.

“Every time we seem to

take control of the game,

we let them back in. … We

were sloppy tonight. Five

goals is not good.”

The Scouts battled inconsistency

for much

of the season as they’ve

fought in a very difficult

North Suburban Conference

with elite teams in

the state. Perry didn’t like

the way his responded to

the first cold match of the

year, but knows that if

Lake Forest wants a deep

run in the playoffs, defense

is the key.

“The middle chuck of

the season when we were

going through the tougher

part of our conference, we

struggled scoring goals,”

Perry said. “We’ve cleaned

that up, we’re creating

chances now. We just need

to tighten up defensively

and concentrate on defense.

The teams that do best in

the playoffs do the best.”

The Spartans win

marked the first game of

the season Marquez played

in. GBN’s senior sharp

shooter missed all of the

season due to a hip flexor

and took away from what

GBN head coach Paul Vignocchi

thought his team

could do this season.

“Just the energy that he

gives on a daily basis,”

Vignocchi commented on

Marquez. “Him not being

on the field is a reason why

we’re not .500 this year.

He was a big part of our

preseason an having him

hurt all season has hurt our

team. We’re happy he’s

back and hoping to make a

push in the playoffs.”

GBN players and coaches

hope that a rallying

win will help them save a

season they thought they

would have this year before

Marquez’ injury. The

Spartans started the postseason

on Tuesday, Oct.

16, against Maine West.

Now that Marquez is

ready to play, the Spartans

are ready to make some

noise in the postseason.

“Now a lot of our guys

that maybe haven’t played

have gotten some experience,”

Vignocchi said. “I

think we’re battle-tested,

I think we’re ready for the

playoffs and we’re excited

to see how far we can go.”

pick-six

GBN put together a

solid drive after forcing a

third second-half Deerfield

turnover. But the Spartans

failed to convert on

a fourth-and-long, giving

Deerfield a chance to tie or

take the lead with just over

two minutes left to play.

On the second play of

the drive, Ciss intercepted

a pass and returned in 37

yards for a touchdown to

give North a 21-7 lead.

“I was really nervous,

they were driving on us,

and it was still a close game

at that point,” Ciss said. “I

just saw that ball thrown up

in the air and I knew that

I had to get it and seal the

deal.”

Ciss’ interception was

the second time this season

the junior has intercepted

a pass in the second half

against a conference rival.

Earlier this year, Ciss

thwarted any comeback

hopes of the Highland Park

Boys Golf

Giants in Week 6 with 67-

yard pick-six. His Week

6 play put North up two

touchdowns, securing a

Spartan win.

Injury news, Week 9

matchup

Now 6-2, the Spartans

welcome Vernon Hills (3-5)

to Northbrook next week on

Homecoming night for their

final regular-season game.

“We just have to keep

getting better,” Pieper said.

“We’re going to see a good

team next week, we’re going

to see a good team Week

10, and then hopefully after

that. There’s no more

week’s off, they’re all going

to be good games. We’ll

see, it’ll be fun.”

The Spartans will likely

be without senior captain

Nick Mantas the rest of the

way. Mantas suffered a knee

injury in a practice earlier

last week. The loss of Mantas,

the team’s best lineman,

is another tough blow to

a team that has dealt with

many key losses on both

sides of the ball.

'They deserve this': Spartans earn trip to playoffs

Martin Carlino, Editor

With his Glenbrook

North Spartans mired in a

7-7 tie at half, and a playoff

berth on the line, head

coach Bob Pieper delivered

a simple message to his

team.

“(We told the guys)

you’ve got 24 minutes left

now, you have one team

in front of you to go to the

playoffs or not, what are

you going to do,” Pieper

said of his halftime message

to the team.

It took just one play for

the Spartans to respond to

Pieper’s challenge, as senior

Owen Sybert returned

the second-half kickoff 97

yards for a touchdown to

give them a 13-7 lead.

North never trailed after

Sybert’s return, finishing

pick-six of the season.

GBN’s victory over its

CSL North rival is the

team’s sixth win of the

season, clinching a playoff

spot for the Spartans.

“I’m really happy

for these boys,” Pieper

said. “They deserve this.

opened the game’s scoring

with a 46-yard touchdown

drive early in the second

quarter.

North capitalized on a

holding penalty against

Deerfield, which turned a

long second-down play into

an automatic first down.

With GBN’s starting

running back Grant Marino

out of action for the thirdstraight

week, Drake Marquez

stepped up to fill the

void.

Marquez delivered a key

20-yard rush, setting up

GBN inside Deerfield’s red

zone. Two plays later, Marquez

finished the drive with

an 8-yard touchdown run.

Deerfield answered

North’s scoring drive with

one of its own. The Warriors

quickly tied the game

at 7 on a six-play, 61-yard

drive.

Sybert ignites strong

second-half performance

Senior leader Owen Sybert

has been a vital part of

GBN’s success in each of

its prior two wins. But, his

Week 8 performance was

arguably his best varsity

game as a Spartan.

With the game tied 7-7 at

the start of the third quarter,

Sybert ignited a strong

Glenbrook North secondhalf

performance with a

97-yard kickoff return for a

touchdown.

“It felt amazing, it felt

like I was making up for

some lost time right there,”

Sybert said. “Our guys did

a great job blocking. … As

soon as I saw the clear, I

thought ‘oh my goodness,

this is real’ and I was just

so excited. And being able

to celebrate with my teammates

was just a great feeling.”

Sybert’s game-changing

run gave the Spartans a

13-7 lead over the Deerfield

Warriors — but his

impact on the game’s outcome

was not finished.

With the Warriors threatening

to score on their

second drive of the half,

Sybert dove to recover a

fumble just inches before

the ball went out of bounds.

“We’re a better team with

him on the field, there’s no

doubt about it,” Pieper said.

“He motivates these kids

by his play, and they follow

his leadership.”

Spartans’ defense turns up

pressure in second half

After Sybert’s return to

start the half, GBN’s defense

forced five turnovers

in the second half, halting

several Deerfield drives

that looked promising.

Deerfield went threeand-out

on its first drive

of the half but put together

one of its best of the game

on its second drive.

The Warriors moved the

ball in North’s territory after

a quarterback keeper set

them up at the 33.

On a third-and-three

from North’s 31, Cam

Casey forced a fumble that

was recovered by GBN.

Early in the game’s

fourth quarter, the Warriors

fumbled a GBN punt

attempt, giving North the

ball back in its own territory.

The Spartans were

unable to capitalize on the

turnover after missing a 23-

yard field goal attempt.

The Warriors again

turned the ball over, this

time via a fumble, which

was recovered by Ciss.
