Village starts construction on 45-year-old fire station

Jacquelyn Schlabach

Editor

The Village of Tinley Park,

emergency personnel and members

of the community gathered

May 6 to honor the history of Fire

Station No. 47 ahead of a complete

rebuild of the 45-year-old

building.

“Today marks another milestone

in the timeline of the Village

of Tinley Park and its 118-yearold

fire department,” said Tinley

Fire Chief Forest Reeder at

the groundbreaking ceremony.

“Today we’re going to look at

where we’ve come from and

where we’re going in our efforts

to increase the capabilities of our

great fire department through the

construction of a modern fire facility.”

The new fire station, located

at 7825 W. 167th. St, is expected

to be completed by spring 2020.

According to Reeder, the last

time a fire station in Tinley was

constructed was in 1995 when

Station No. 49 on 191st Street

was built.

The new facility is to feature a

bunk room to accommodate up to

eight firefighters, more privacy

for showers and changing, a fitness

room, up-graded safety and

cancer-prevention measures, a

basement for storage–which the

three other fire stations in Tinley

do not have–a drive-thru so that

emergency vehicles won’t have

to back into the station, which

causes traffic issues and more.

“Together, this [fire station]

and any other fire station in the

country symbolizes safety, pride,

duty, tradition and honor,” said

Reeder during the ceremony. “As

Tinley Park has grown, so have

the needs of our fire department

and we are building for the future

here with a larger, more upto-date

station that will allow for

growth, comfort and efficiency.”

According to Reeder, the fire

stations should be able to hold six

or more people, but Fire Station

No. 47 barely held five. The new

fire station will also allow space

for six to seven vehicles, where it

only had space for three prior to

construction.

The emergency personnel who

were housed at the station are

temporarily assigned to stations

46, 48 and 49.

“I’m just excited [about what]

this will give us in terms of our

staffing abilities and ability to

grow,” said Reeder.

The cost for the new fire station

is $5.9 million and according

to Mayor Jacob Vandenberg,

who also gave remarks at the

groundbreaking, the Village did

not raise taxes in order to fund the

project. Village Manager David

Neimeyer added that the Village

saved money through reserves

for a number of years which led

to “good, conservative spending”

to build the fire station.

FGM Architects and R.C. Wegman

were hired by the Village to

design and construct the facility.

Reeder said that FGM Architects

was able to take a prototype

from one of the stations at the

Lockport Fire Department and

used it as a footprint for the construction

of Fire Station No. 47.

“We’ve been fortunate enough

to have built [and] been involved

with the construction of 15 fire

stations in about eight different

communities and it never gets

old,” said Terry Bohr of R.C. Wegman

during the ceremony. “It’s

just an honor to be involved with

the construction of a facility that

means so much to the community.”

Bohr added that he promises

the Village that it will be a building

“that the entire community

will be very proud of.”

Andrew Jasek, of FGM Architects,

also spoke at the groundbreaking

ceremony and said that

with the leadership of Reeder and

John Urbanski, assistant public

works director, they “really dug

deep and wanted to look ahead”

to build a station to be enduring

for many years.

“We’re saddened to see this

Fire Station No. 47 is currently being rebuilt after housing firefighters for 45 years. The new building is

expected to be completed by spring 2020. photos by jacquelyn schlabach/22dn Century Media

building go, however, the crews,

the equipment and this history

will move forward into a new

firehouse in spectacular fashion

hopefully next year at this time,”

said Reeder.

Following remarks from Reeder,

Vandenberg, Jasek, Bohr and

retired firefighters who worked at

Fire Station No. 47, Reeder led

the crowd in the decommissioning

of the station. The firefighters

in attendance raised the volume

on their radios so the crowd could

hear the final tone-out for the station.

“The Tinley Park fire department

places station 47 temporarily

out of service,” the crowd

heard over the radios. “After 45

years of housing Tinley Park’s

bravest and protecting our community,

as our new station rises

in its footprint, we honor every

member who’s served from this

location and those who will serve

in the future. Tinley Park Station

47 cleared.”

“I’m just bursting with pride,”

Reeder said.

Tinley Park Village Board

One Tinley Park sworn in as new trustees

Jessie Molloy

Freelance Reporter

The Village of Tinley

Park inaugurated three new

trustees onto its Board of

Trustees before the commencement

of its regular

board meeting May 7.

Bill Brennan, Diane

Galante and Michael Mueller

were sworn in at a special

ceremony by Justice

Margaret M. Ogarek, a Circuit

Court Judge of Cook

County. The three new

trustees ran together under

the ticket of the One Tinley

Park party with the support

of Trustee Michael Glotz

and Clerk Kristin Thirion

and defeated outgoing

trustees Michael Pannitto,

John Curran and John Mc-

Guire in the April election.

The party campaigned

on the principles of unity,

respect, equity and humility,

a message which Mueller

said “resonated with

voters.”

“I’m excited that our

message resonated and for

the opportunities that lie

ahead of us as a board and

as a village as a whole,”

Mueller said.

“Our diversity is not

a problem to fix, it’s a

strength to be embraced,”

Thirion said introducing

the new trustees. “I’m

proud to call each of you

my colleagues, my neighbors,

and my friends.”

“I’m extremely humbled

by all the residents who put

their trust in us,” Galente

added after being sworn in.

“I believe we can do anything

we put our minds to

and I believe we can all

stand together for our common

love of Tinley Park to

make it a better place.”

During his post-inaugural

remarks Brennan took

the time to thank his wife,

his family and everyone

who supported his candidacy.

“Everything you did,

know it didn’t go unappreciated,”

he said.

During the regular meeting

it was established that

Galante will chair the Village

Finance Committee

while serving on the Marketing

and Community

Development committees.

Brennan will chair the Public

Safety Committee and

serve on both the Public

Works and Administration

& Legal Committee,

while Mueller will chair

the Community Development

Committee and serve

on the Finance and Marketing

committees.

These assignments reflect

changes approved

unanimously by the new

board during the meeting

merging Economic

Development with the

Community Development

Committee and separate

Marketing to become its

own committee. The Public

Works, Public Safety and

Administration & Legal

committees will meet on

the second Tuesday of the

month at 6:30 p.m. while

the Marketing, Finance,

and Community Development

committees will meet

on the fourth Tuesday of

the month at 6:30 p.m.

Update to public comment

policy

In addition to making

changes to committee assignments,

the new board

immediately enacted a new

meeting procedure which

will take effect at its next

meeting.

The board voted unanimously

to update the village’s

“public comment

ROUND IT UP

A brief recap of action and discussion from the May

7 meeting of the Tinley Park Village Board

•The board adopted a resolution renaming the

current Community Service Youth Scholarship

Program to the Reta L. Brudd Memorial Scholarship

Program, in memory of the long-time Community

Resource Commission member. Brudd served on the

commission from March 1973 until her death in April

and was involved in nearly all of the commission’s

youth programs. Vandenburg said the scholarship

dedication was to “show our appreciation and

gratitude to Reta and her family for her lifetime of

service... She is going to be missed a lot.”

•The board issued several proclamations

recognizing special awareness and appreciation

days throughout the village. The board voted to

approve the week of May 5 through May 11 as

both “Municipal Clerks Week” and “Public Service

Recognition Week.” May 14 was officially “Apraxia

Awareness Day,” recognizing children afflicted with

the rare speech disorder and the week of May 19

through May 25 is to be recognized as “National

Public Works Week.”

policy” so that members of

the public can express their

opinions on agenda items

more freely.

Government bodies are

legally obligated to include

a public comment section

during open meetings and

are encouraged to create

rules limiting comment

time. Previously, Tinley’s

comment section took

place early in the meeting

so residents could express

concerns about items

scheduled for the agenda

and was limited to four

minutes per person and

45 minutes total. The new

rules place the public comment

section at the end of

the meeting with the caveat

that members of the public

can come forward to speak

during the discussion period

on any agenda item

looking to receive final approval

before it is voted on.

“Each board gets to decide

when we do public

comment,” Mayor Jacob

Vandenberg said. “We’ve

had public comments at

the end of the meeting before,

but it was moved so

people could address issues

before they were voted on.

With the new rule, if someone

wants to comment on

an item that could be approved,

not just as a first

meeting, they would be

able to speak at that time

during the meeting.”

Amendment to Hollywood

Casino Amphitheatre liquor

license

The final large item

voted on May 7 was the

approval of an amendment

to the liquor license for the

Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre.

According to Vandenberg

this vote was the culmination

of “two or three

years worth of work” with

the village, the police department,

and the amphitheatre

management to

“improve their concert experience.”

The amendments to the

venue’s exclusive I and J

class liquor licenses will

now allow for the sale of

canned wine and wine

coolers up to 25 ounces

and the sale of alcohol by

bottle service in the venue’s

upper Skyboxes and allow

for guests to take their beverages

out of private VIP

areas into the rest of the

venue. Additionally, the

amendments will permit

the sale of alcohol within

the amphitheatre’s lawn

section from two designated

points at the north and

south ends of the venue,

as well as from roaming,

mobile vendors in the lawn

seats. During select, multistage

events where acts are

playing in portions of the

parking lot and concourse,

liquor will also be allowed

to be sold within the secure,

temporarily fenced in concert

area outside of gates 4

and 3 when attendance exceeds

23,000 people.

The goal of the changes

is to decrease lines at concession

stands and to allow

guests to purchase

refreshments without having

to leave the show and

go down to the main concourse.

Tinley Park Police Sergeant

Patrick St. John, who

handles police security at all

the village’s concerts and

special events, spoke at the

meeting to endorse the plan.

“I have worked extensively

with Legends Music

and the venue management

and I can tell you that

their professionalism and

responsibility is beyond

reproach,” he said, noting

that the venue strictly

enforces a “zero tolerance

policy” for underage liquor

sales.

St. John worked personally

with the village and the

venue to select the spaces

where the lawn vendors

would be established and

the boundaries for parking

lot sales during large shows.

“We’ve never had any

problems with the venue

and I’m very comfortable

with the proposed changes,”

he said.

“I support this plan 100

percent,” Vandenberg added.

“I think it will help the

venue stay consistent and

improve the guest experience.”

Vandenberg added an

apology to the new trustees

for asking them to vote on

the issue during their first

meeting, but noted “concert

season is upon us, so we

need to make this choice

quickly.”

All of the new trustees

joined the incumbent board

members in voting to approve

the plan.

Another issue raised by

the board regarding the

amphitheatre was a former

proposal to run a trolley

service between the venue

and the downtown area before

and after shows.

While St. John acknowledged

the trolley “is a great

idea,” he said the “current

infrastructure does not support

it.”

For those hoping to see a

trolley service created, it is

not likely to happen in the

near future. Unless Harlem

or Oak Park Avenue is

widened beyond two lanes

near the venue driveways,

the trolley would only create

more traffic difficulties

entering and exiting the

crowded parking lot.

From May 11

Authorities nab, charge alleged child abductor

Staff Report

The Tinley Park Police

Department on Saturday,

May 11 arrested a man in

conjunction with a childluring

attempt on Wednesday,

May 8, village officials

announced via social

media.

According to the post,

Guillermo Alva, 62, of

Lockport, was arrested and

charged with child abduction

after allegedly trying

to lure a female juvenile

into his vehicle using cash.

The female was able to

enter a nearby business

around 167th Street and

Harlem Avenue and alert

its employees, who then

reportedly called police as

Alva fled in a red van.

According to police, the

girl was walking alone

when she was approached

by a male subject driving

a red minivan. The subject

reportedly asked the

girl for directions before

following her into the

parking lot of a nearby

business, where he “offered

the victim cash in

exchange for getting into

his vehicle.”

Alva was in the custody

of the Tinley Park Police

Department before being

transported to the Leighton

Criminal Court Building

for a bond hearing, the

post says.

Patrick St. John, the

sergeant of operations and

public information officer

with the Tinley Park Police

Department said that

incidents like these in Tinley

Park are “very rare.”

Odyssey Golf Foundation’s

community 5K fundraiser

is set to take place May 19

Amanda Del Buono

Freelance Reporter

There are many organizations

dedicated to helping

veterans cope with

post-traumatic stress disorder

and other disabilities

they must manage

after returning to civilian

life. In Tinley Park, the

Odyssey Golf Foundation

is working to do just

that by allowing veterans

to golf on a closed course

among their peers.

The 5-year-old 501(c)3

organization is headquartered

at the Odyssey Golf

Foundation Golf Course

and supports about 1,300

veteran members.

“Our mission is to assist

veterans and individuals

with disabilities and give

them the opportunity to

come and play golf at the

golf course, and it’s been

a very good experience

for everybody,” said Dakota

Stariha, who is the

event coordinator for an

upcoming fundraiser. “We

provide therapeutic services

through golf, so we

have outings every single

week for the summer.”

Each week, more than

100 veterans from Tinley

Park, New Lenox and

other nearby communities

come to the Odyssey Golf

Foundation’s course to

play for just $20, Stariha

said.

“The whole course is

shut down from about 8

a.m. to 3 p.m., and they

get to play golf. Everybody

that’s in the outing

is a veteran. They get

their golf included, they

get breakfast before they

go out to golf, and then

they get lunch also, all for

$20,” he said. “One of our

main goals is to make it

affordable for some veterans

who are retired and

even active duty, so we

have different programs

for each of them.”

The organization has

chosen to focus its efforts

on providing golf as an

outlet to veterans because

it allows them to be outdoors

and in open spaces

without crowding, a common

trigger for those who

return with PTSD, Stariha

said.

“When these veterans

come back from a war that

they’ve been in, and they

have a PTSD-type experience

when they’re out in

the open,” he said. “So, by

having these outings, you

have all of these guys who

have been in these wars,

and almost even in the

same battalion so to say,

they kind of forget about

that. They don’t have the

PTSD at all, and a lot of

times, veterans have told

me that this is the only

course they can play at

because they can’t go and

play somewhere else and

have a panic attack when

they’re out there.”

To continue its cause

of providing therapy

through sport, the foundation

is hosting its first

community 5K fundraising

event, Run Fore the

Greater Good 5K. The 5K

walk/run will take place

Sunday, May 19, with all

proceeds benefiting the

Odyssey Golf Foundation.

“We thought a good

way to involve everybody

in the community would

be to do a 5K,” Stariha

said. “This is the first of

its kind [for the foundation].

We don’t like to

do a ton of fundraising,

because we try to make

it sustainable because we

are a public course, too,

so we can have people

come out and play regularly.

You don’t need to be

a veteran to come out and

play.”

Until now, the foundation’s

fundraising efforts

have relied on $10 annual

veteran memberships, civilian

play time and an

annual golf outing fundraiser,

Stariha said.

The 5K will take place

at 8 a.m., with check-in

and registration starting at

7:15 a.m. The course will

span the Odyssey Golf

Foundation Golf Course,

with parking available

at 19111 Oak Park Ave.,

in Tinley Park. The cost

of entry for runners and

walkers is $25, and registration

can be completed

at OdysseyGolfFounda

tion.org/5K/.

For those who aren’t

able to participate in the

5K, community members

are invited to golf at the

Odyssey Golf Foundation’s

golf course, with

the fees going to the foundation’s

cause.

PAWS Tinley receives

more than $1,600 from

Stagg High School

Submitted by

Consolidated High School

District 230

Stagg High School Entrepreneurship

students

completed a Shark Tank

inspired lesson that put

what they learned in class

to the test. And it paid off

for them and for PAWS

of Tinley Park as they donated

their profits of more

than $1,600 to the local

animal shelter.

Teams of students determined

a product to sell

to their peers during lunch

periods. They forecasted

sales and inventory to

create a budget and developed

a marketing plan.

They then pitched their

ideas to a panel of Sharks

comprised of school and

district administrators to

seek a start-up funding investment.

One team sold

milkshakes and the other

popcorn.

In the end, their business

models worked. After

paying back the start-up

costs, they turned a collective

profit of more than

$1,600 which was donated

to PAWS of Tinley Park, a

non-profit organization the

teams selected as the beneficiary

of their efforts.

PAWS of Tinley Park

is a no-kill animal shelter

dedicated to the protection

of domestic animals and

to the attempt to prevent

animal cruelty in the surrounding

communities. It

is dedicated to finding safe

and permanent new homes

for domestic animals as

well as helping the public

choose the right companions

for their families. To

Tinley Park or to join the

Stagg High School students

function is not one of

decision–making, but as

the voice of all students’

needs as recommendations

are being made to

and decisions are made by

the School Board.

proposals and programs

related to curriculum and

co-curricular program

renewal development to

reviews all policies,

proposals and programs

related to student support

services and special services

to provide information

and recommendations

to the School Board.

Building and Finance

systematically reviews

the financial condition of

the district and provides

information and recommendations

to the School

Board on matters of policy,

processes, and planning

for district finance.

This committee oversees

all building projects within

the district and advises

the School Board on the

progress of those projects.

This committee also

reviews topics related to

student transportation.

Board Committees shall

be comprised of community

members, School

Board members, staff

and administration. Each

member serves an important

role in providing

insight and expertise regarding

topics being considered

by the full Board.

In providing input to the

School Board and administration,

it is important

that committee members

do the following:

•Focus on the best interests

of all students without

representing a narrow

or personal agenda

•Show courtesy and respect

to other members

Chamber executive director donates time,

art skills to childhood cancer patients

Submitted by Oncology

Treasure Chest

Foundation

Memorial Day Sale!

Closed Monday, 5/27

in honor of Memorial Day

Tinley Park resident

Jackie Bobbitt is supporting

children fighting

cancer by donating her

impressive artistic skills

to benefit the Pediatric

Oncology Treasure Chest

Foundation (POTCF), an

Orland Park-based, nonprofit

organization that

fills Treasure Chests with

toys and gift cards for children

and teens diagnosed

with cancer nationwide.

The origin of Bobbitt’s

involvement with the

Treasure Chest Foundation

can be traced back

to 2016, when she first

learned about the foundation’s

mission of providing

toys and gifts to young

cancer patients while

serving as the executive

director of the Tinley Park

Chamber of Commerce.

In 2017, Bobbitt began

applying her time and talent

to paint the Treasure

Chests located at each

of the Children’s Cancer

Treatment Centers served

by the POTCF.

Before tackling each request

for a newly painted

Treasure Chest, Bobbitt

typically reaches out to

the representatives at each

Treatment Center and

then paints the Treasure

Chest to match that hospital’s

existing theme and

paint scheme.

“I am happy to donate

the time and supplies,”

says Bobbitt. “It’s my way

of supporting the Treasure

Chest Foundation. I love

what they are doing, and

I am happy to help. I look

Jackie Bobbitt, of Tinley Park, displays the newly

painted, summer-themed Treasure Chest at the

Foundation’s Orland Park warehouse that will be filled

with toys and gifts for young cancer patients. Photo

submitted

forward to painting and

decorating many more

Treasure Chests in the future.”

Thus far, she has painted

four Treasure Chests,

with the first three becoming

instant hits in

Toledo, Ohio and at two

Children’s Cancer Treatment

Centers in Missouri.

For her latest masterpiece,

Bobbitt skillfully painted

a Treasure Chest to match

the sunny theme of The

Children’s Hospital at Tristar

Centennial in Nashville,

Tennessee.

“The Treasure Chest

Foundation is especially

grateful to Jackie Bobbitt

for her tremendous donation

of time, talent and artistic

skill,” said POTCF

CEO and Founder Colleen

Kisel. “Because of her hard

work and generosity, The

Children’s Hospital at Tristar

Centennial will receive

one new, beautifully painted

Treasure Chest on May

20. That location serves

more than 50 children

fighting cancer weekly and

will become our 55th Treasure

Chest Program serving

young cancer patients

throughout the nation.”

The POTCF is a unique

organization whose services

impact more than

13,300 young cancer patients

enduring 20,000

clinic visits each month

in 19 states across the nation.

Colleen Kisel founded

the organization in 1996

after her then seven-yearold

son Martin had been

diagnosed with leukemia

in 1993. Kisel discovered

that giving her son a toy

after each procedure provided

a calming distraction

from his pain, noting

that when children are diagnosed

with cancer their

world soon becomes filled

with doctors, nurses, chemotherapy

drugs, surgeries

and seemingly endless

painful procedures.

St. Coletta’s receives $1,400 from Knights of Columbus

Submitted by St. Coletta’s

The Knights of Columbus

Crusaders Council

10151 presented St. Coletta’s

of Illinois with a

check for $1,400 from its

annual Tootsie Roll Days

fundraiser.

The Crusaders Council,

out of Our Lady of the

Woods Parish, has a longstanding

history with St.

Coletta’s that goes back to

when they were both located

in Palos Park.

“Our Lady of the Woods

was right on the St. Coletta’s

campus for many

years,” said Grand Knight

George Griffin. “Several

Grand Knight George Griffin (left) and Council Trustee

Len Walejeski (right) present a check to Vice President

of Community Programming Ray Bryan (middle).

Photo submitted

of the Knights have special

needs children, many

of whom attended St. Coletta’s

Kennedy School.”

A move to Orland Park

did not stop Our Lady of

the Woods from continuing

their relationship with

St. Coletta’s. In addition

to fundraising each year

through the Knights of Columbus

Tootsie Roll event,

each Christmas the parish

provides gifts for St. Coletta’s

residential participants

through their “Giving

Tree” program. And when

St. Coletta’s needed volunteers

recently for their own

tagging event, some of the

volunteers came from Our

Lady of the Woods without

hesitation.

When it comes to the

difficulties those with intellectual

and developmental

disabilities face, Griffin

goes on to say that “As a

council, as a Knight, we

pledge to help those who

need help. No one should

be without hope or without

help.”

St. Coletta’s of Illinois,

celebrating its 70th year,

provides services to over

250 adults and children

with intellectual and developmental

disabilities

through educational, vocational

and residential programming.

Odyssey Fun World

donates $2,700 to

Tinley DARE program

Submitted by Odyssey Fun World

The Tinley Park Police Department

DARE program received a $2,700 donation

from Odyssey Fun World in Tinley

Park. On May 6, Officer Robert Shervino

picked up a donation check for the

DARE program.

Every year, Odyssey Fun World hosts

a private DARE event for local children

where they can have unlimited fun for

about half the price of what they would

normally pay. Odyssey Fun World then

takes 70 percent of sales and donates it to

DARE to provide workbooks and other

materials for the students. The books to

be used teach children about the dangers

of drugs, alcohol and tobacco at an

early age. This year there were almost

200 children that attended and raised the

money for DARE.

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Alleged blackface incident

draws mixed responses

from community

A photo surfaced May 4

on Instagram that reportedly

shows Lincoln-Way

Central students in what

some people think to be

blackface at the Speedway

on Front Street and Wolf

Road in Mokena.

The photo appeared

to show three Caucasian

youths wearing black volcanic

ash charcoal acne

masks while inside of a

vehicle.

Mokena Police were

notified of the situation

and declined to pursue a

criminal investigation, but

referred the matter to a

resource officer with Lincoln-Way

D210, according

to Mokena Police Chief

Steve Vaccaro.

Mokena Mayor Frank

Fleischer said that while

the actions of the students

may have been ill-advised,

there was “no reason [for

anyone] to be offended,”

adding that, “There’s no

law or ordinance against

stupidity.”

The person who posted

the Instagram photo,

Sylvester Williams, said

he did so not to “bash”

the students but, rather,

to bring the adults of the

community together to

have a conversation about

racial issues.

“I live in the area, and

I know how the area can

sometimes be,” Williams

said. “I know that there

are good people and bad

people everywhere; however,

this was a situation

that had just came up with

the high school not to far

away, Homewood-Flossmoor.

… These are things

that have been in the news,

have been in the media, and

for the young people to still

do it, to say, ‘Hey, it’s not a

big deal; it’s just a charcoal

mask,’ is kind of like a way

of brushing it off and saying

that it’s OK.”

FROM THE ORLAND PARK PRAIRIE

Joe La Margo out as

Village manager at first

meeting for new officials

The search is once again

on for a new Village manager

after the Orland Park

Village Board voted 6-1 on

May 6 to accept the resignation

of Joe La Margo.

The vote came after a

short executive session,

after which Trustee Dan

Calandriello cast the lone

dissenting vote.

After the meeting, La

Margo said he was asked

to resign by Mayor Keith

Pekau shortly after the

April election.

“It was within two days

[after] the election, but

he has been a gentleman

about it,” La Margo said.

La Margo said he met

with all three of the newly

elected trustees recently

and that he thought he

would have been able to

work with them had he

continued working as Village

manager.

“They really do seem

to have a passion for the

community,” he said. “I

wish them the best.”

La Margo worked for

the Village for 13 years

and has lived in town for

nearly 20 years.

After the meeting, Pekau

said there was no specific

thing about La Margo

that led to the decision to

ask the Village manager to

resign, and the mayor said

he would not comment on

La Margo’s job performance.

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

Kelvin Grove Nature Club

expands with inaugural

market

A few years ago, Kelvin

Grove School teacher

Christie Soulian would

look out her classroom

window at an unused piece

of land near the playground

and imagine it being

a special place for her

students: a garden.

And with the garden

came the inception of the

Calvin Grove Nature Club.

“I put in a letter of interest

for the Nature Club,”

Soulian explained. “We

started with the fourth- and

fifth-graders. They were so

excited to have a club. The

students who started this

are now sophomores in

high school.”

Taking a walk behind

the school, one finds a

small patch of fenced-in

land. Four raised garden

boxes dot the lot, and there

also is a rain barrel.

Soulian, who has taught

at Kelvin Grove for 16

years, sees Nature Club

participants learn responsibility

and other life

skills.

In addition to taking

care of the garden, the Nature

Club held its first Nature

Club Market on May

3 and 4. The students are

trying to raise money to

purchase benches with the

plastic milk jug caps they

have been collecting. They

also are looking to purchase

other items, including

updating the rain barrel

setup, in order to increase

functionality and to beautify

the KG garden.

FROM THE FRANKFORT STATION

Concerts on the Green to

feature new, returning acts

For more than three decades,

summers in Frankfort

have brought Fourth

of July fireworks, opportunities

to explore the great

outdoors and Sunday evenings

with music at Breidert

Green.

Now in its 32nd season,

the 2019 Concerts on the

Green series is to kick off

June 16, with performances

scheduled for every Sunday

through Aug. 25. The

concerts, sponsored by

the Frankfort Chamber of

Commerce, are typically

held at Breidert Green,

but in the case of stormy

weather, the shows will

move indoors to the Founders

Community Center.

Eight volunteers are

tasked with reviewing the

hundreds of bands that

request to perform for the

occasion. This year’s lineup

encompasses a broad

range of musical genres,

from Motown and R&B

to Caribbean reggae and

calypso.

While several familiar

acts will return to the Breidert

Green stage, such as

the Joliet American Legion

Band and retro rock

and roll band Rosie &

The Rivets, three new

groups are scheduled to

perform.

“As always, we try to

provide variety in the 10

concerts we present, and

hope to please the audiences,”

Griffin said.

From the Publisher

Who we are as a community

Joe Coughlin

Publisher

I

was embarrassed by

my community this

week and I would like

to tell you about it.

I know and I love this

community. I was raised in

New Lenox, went through

public schools at District

122 and LW D210, and

remain a community member,

though living with my

family in a western suburb.

This community is

compassionate, loyal

and proud. It believes in

respect and kindness. And

those values seemed to be

at odds last week.

Through our reporting,

we learned that three

young people (juveniles)

who reportedly had on

black face-cleansing masks

allegedly drove to a local

gas station for snacks

while wearing the masks.

I am not interested in

debating their intention. It

is irrelevant to me whether

they wanted to do harm,

thought it was a meaningless

joke, or were completely

ignorant to “blackface”

and its implications.

That’s because either

of the options is a problem,

and a problem we

as a community need to

acknowledge.

“Blackface” has a racist

history, one in which

it was used to degrade,

demean, insult and generally

disrespect persons of

color. Wearing blackface,

regardless of your intention,

aligns you with that

history.

And this is where I grew

embarrassed, not necessarily

by the kids or their act,

but by our community’s

reaction as the incident

became news.

That reaction was a

general shoulder shrug.

We need to admit that

what these kids did was

wrong — not because they

are racist, not because they

meant offense, but because

we as a community respect

each other and believe in

accountability.

While this community

lacks diversity (and that’s

not a crime), we value and

respect all our neighbors.

Therefore, we must recognize

how an act like this

affects everyone.

This community is

proud and believes in

loyalty. Those attributes

problem events, as well

as an architecture design

competition and an engineering

are at the top of the list of

reasons I love it. We rush

to protect our own and

defend what is ours.

In that rush, though,

amid that fierce loyalty and

wall of pride, we can lose

perspective — forget the

other values we hold dear,

like our steadfast belief in

right vs. wrong.

Think about the times

you remained silent even

though you felt uncomfortable

with a friend’s or

relative’s behavior. Our

love for and loyalty to that

person may keep us from

being honest.

But we know better. We

know true friendship, true

leadership is calling out

our loved ones and our

neighbors when they need

calling out. Love is based

on mutual respect, and

mutual respect allows us

to constructively challenge

each other.

We can, at the same

time, support our young

people (like the three teens

in the facemasks) and take

a stand against insensitivity

(like wearing blackface).

We can shoulder this

burden as a community

and say, “Kids, this was an

error in judgment, but you

are not villains. We believe

in you, and we apologize

for not showing you the

way.”

We have a responsibility

to do that together.

Our community leaders,

like those in charge of our

education at LW District

210, have a responsibility

to speak up.

Silence sends a message

that is loud and clear that

we condone these acts. By

ignoring them, we enable

them.

This leads into a final

point: We can do better.

No doubt, there are

worse things you can do

than wear face-cleansing

masks to a local gas station,

but it is behavior —

malice-free or not — that

is not acceptable anywhere

and certainly not here. We

need to ask and discuss

why anyone would think

it is OK to go out in our

community while wearing

black facemasks.

It is not a simple question

to ask or answer. It

forces us to take a hard

look in the mirror, and I

hope our community leaders

— from government

officials to educators to

longtime residents — ask

themselves that question.

I know I did. I hope you

do, too.

D146 students showcase artistic expression with exhibit

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

Every year, one of the

most anticipated Vogt Visual

Arts Center exhibits

comes in the form of the

Community Consolidated

School District 146 collaborative

showcase. Drawings,

paintings, illustrations

and more reveal the

vast talent emanating from

the young artists of Central

Middle School, Fierke

Education Center, Fulton

Elementary School, Kruse

Education Center and Memorial

School.

On May 8, artists –

along with their family and

friends – converged at the

Tinley Park–Park District

operated gallery to enjoy

an evening of art and inspiration

at the exhibit’s

opening reception.

Central Middle School

art teacher Cindy DePinto-

Dawud explained that approximately

100 pieces –

about 20 from each school

– were featured in this

year’s exhibit.

“This is an annual show

we do with the Vogt Art

Center and we don’t have a

theme. It’s work collected

throughout the year from

the classrooms or original

work that the students

have created on their own

outside of the classroom,”

said DePinto-Dawud.

Dan McLaughlin, the art

teacher at Fulton School,

explained that having an

open theme allows each

artist to explore their interests

and imaginations.

“I like this because it

gives them the freedom

to explore at home and go

where their imagination

takes them,” said McLaughlin.

“It’s a lot of fun.”

Kruse Education Center

third grader Rylinn West,

an Orland Park resident,

loves the book “The Dot,”

so she used it as a source

of inspiration in creating

her colorful exhibit piece.

“Mine is a giant rainbow

dot with little purple

squigglies on the outside,”

said West adding that the

colors represent her personality.

“I was inspired

by the book “The Dot” so

I made a dot picture. The

book is cool because at the

end it shows all the different

dots you can do.”

Spherical wonder was

also at the heart of Fulton

School first grader Rikki

Saludar’s piece and her

creativity was ignited by a

recent holiday tradition.

“I did an Easter egg hunt

and it had a lot of colors,

so I made this,” said Rikki

Saludar pointing to her abstract

design.

Rikki’s sister, Fulton

fourth grader Renee Saludar,

created a character

depicting life, happiness

and just the right amount

of humor with her mixed

media painting.

“It’s a leaf plant, kind of,

and it came to life to bring

happiness because rainbows

make me happy,” she

said noting the ROYGBIV

background.

Vogt Visual Arts Center

Gallery Director Julie

Dekker was impressed

with the work of the budding

artists of District 146.

“I actually didn’t know

that the kids were allowed

to do whatever they liked

until Dan [McLaughlin]

said so tonight, but I felt

that way when I was putting

the exhibit up because

it’s very diverse,” said

Dekker. “There seemed

to be a certain freedom

in it. It looked to me like

kids did pictures of their

favorite things because

it’s really random. There’s

one of avocados and also

unicorns are very popular

these days. Unicorns and

rainbows which is very

cool. There’s a lot of happy,

happy pictures.”

DePinto-Dawud explained

that art can be

more than a picture to be

enjoyed. It can also be a

career and a way to share

ideas.

“There are a lot of assets

to being an artist,” said

DePinto-Dawud. “One is

you have a natural talent

that not everybody has and

that should be displayed

and showcased. Also, it

can be used for advertisement

and a purposeful career.

You can also use art

for social awareness – we

teach that a little bit at the

middle school level – and

getting it exposed in the

community.”

The District 146 exhibit

will be on display through

Senior Idol provides stage for longtime performer’s comeback story

Mary Compton

Freelance Reporter

Jimmy “Vincent” Mattaliano,

of Forest Park, believes

in second chances.

As a professional singer,

Mattaliano enjoyed a long

career. A horrible car crash

ended the dream. But the

evening of Thursday, May

9, changed all of that.

That night, Mattaliano

won Orland Township’s

Senior American Idol

competition.

“I was working a lot,

performing in the business,”

Mattaliano said.

“The car accident damaged

my back so bad I couldn’t

perform anymore.”

Since then, he has had

three back surgeries and

is in chronic pain. He was

determined to get back to

his love of music and performing.

“I was loving music at 3

years old but didn’t get serious

until my mid-teens,”

he said.

At 15 years old, he was

playing drums professionally.

His brothers and parents

sang, as well.

“I worked for a lot of

Chicago nightclubs,” he

said. “Once you get out,

it’s very hard to get back

in. This means a lot to me,

I used to live onstage and

performed for decades.

For me to do this onstage

means the world to me.”

Mattaliano also performed

in the Orland

Township Senior American

Idol last year but did

not find the same success.

“Obviously, I didn’t

win, so I wanted to try

again this year,” he said.

“I’m very grateful to have

won tonight.”

According to Orland

Township, the evening

was modeled after the

popular television show

“American Idol.” The 12

contestants performed a

song of their choice, hoping

to move on to the next

round. Contestants receiving

the highest scores advanced

to the next round.

And scores were determined

by a combination

of points from a panel of

local celebrity judges, audience

vote and ballot box

totals.

Victor Giacobbe, of Tinley

Park, was thrilled to

be onstage. He took part

as a contestant for three

years. May 9 marked his

fourth time performing in

the Senior American Idol.

His raspy rock voice got

fans dancing in front of the

stage.

“I come here for fun,”

Giacobbe said. “Most of

all, I want my family to

enjoy what I’m doing. It

also goes for a good cause:

the scholarships for the

students. It’s a win-win

situation.”

His singing career began

at a Christmas party 20

years ago.

“It was on a bet that I

would not go in front of

everyone and sing. Well, I

got up and sang, and it was

all up from there.”

Three talented judges

came to decide the senior

with the best vocals. They

include local radio personality

Rich Renik, favorite

local entertainer Peter

Oprisko, and opera singer

and entertainer James

Libera.

Orland Township Supervisor

Paul O’Grady, said

he has not missed an Senior

American Idol yet.

“My mother was a

great singer, and would

sing around the house all

the time,” O’Grady said.

“Many of the songs I heard

tonight, I heard my mother

sing in our kitchen. This

brings back a lot of fond

memories, and it’s a great

event for our community.

The seniors are our greatest

asset in our Township.

Tonight’s event, which is

raising funds for the Orland

Township Scholarship

Foundation.”

Last week, Orland

Township gave out 16

scholarships to students.

“We only ask one

thing for the recipients,”

O’Grady said. “We ask

The Dish

The Irish Patriot: a taste of Ireland in Orland Park

Alex Ivanisevic

Assistant Editor

Rather than travel the

3,600 miles across the Atlantic,

one needs only to

head to the Historic District

of Orland Park to get a taste

of Ireland at The Irish Patriot.

Owners Vincent and Fiona

Tuohy came to America

from Ireland roughly 10

years ago and purchased

the building at 9875 W.

143rd St. in 2010. Today,

they are serving classic

Irish and American food to

locals in a traditional pub

atmosphere.

“It’s a historical building

here; it is the first brick

building ever built here in

Orland Park,” Vincent said.

“When we bought it, it was

crumbling down and the

roof was caving in and the

walls were falling down. It

was a little piece of history

falling apart. We’ve left

this place in good shape for

another 100 years, I hope.”

After two years of remodeling

and much-needed

repairs, The Irish Patriot

opened in March of 2012.

“We tried to use the classical

Irish pub look, like

you’d see in small villages

in Dublin,” he said.

At the center of the dining

room is a large, stone

fireplace.

“Wouldn’t be an Irish

pub without one,” Vincent

said.

The pub is open from

11-2 a.m. Sunday through

Saturday, and serves “a

pretty extensive menu of

American and Irish fare,”

Vincent said. “Since we

opened in 2012, our three

top sellers are our fish and

chips ($14). They’re really

famous here. We use

North Atlantic cod, and we

make our own batter with a

secret ingredient, and then

our burger ($12) is hugely

popular as well as our Reuben

($13). They’re always

in our Top 3.”

Also on the menu are traditional

Irish dishes, such

as corned beef and shepherd’s

pie, among other options.

In addition to serving

guests at the hardwood bar

in the pub section and in the

dining room throughout the

week, The Irish Patriot allows

its dining area to be

booked for parties.

Vincent said the restaurant

sees a lot of wedding

parties, communion and

confirmation parties, “as

we’re quite close to St.

Michael’s Catholic Church

here. ...We got a church

down the street and a funeral

home across the street, so

we do some funeral work,

too.”

The Tuohys also own

The Irish Legend in Willow

Springs and the Burbank

Pub in its namesake town.

They take pride in the connection

they have made to

the communities around

their pubs.

“We see a lot of regulars

here,” Vincent said. “We

are classically a neighborhood

bar. It is something

like ‘Cheers’ with the characters

that are in here.”

Fiona said the time commitment

to running the pub

is “completely 24/7,” and

she also remarked on the

regulars they see come to

The Irish Patriot.

“I love it, because we get

to know so many people

here, and I call them regulars

but they are actually

friends,” she said.

Similar to the way Vincent

described their “neighborhood-bar

vibe,” Fiona

said, “There’s a lot of people

who came here on their

own and just became best

friends.”

She said she appreciates

how friendly and outgoing

people are, and it creates a

“family atmosphere, which

is really nice.”

There are a few special

events The Irish Patriot

enjoys celebrating with its

guests — one of them being

St. Patrick’s Day.

“We have a very special

party here for St. Patrick’s

Day,” Vincent said. “It’s

basically a week here. The

weekend before [the holiday],

we have a trolley bus

and work with all the fellow

pubs in the area and

have a trolley bus crawl,

and then I fly in musicians

from Ireland every year for

the holiday, and they stay a

few days. We have a lot of

fun.”

The Irish Patriot owner Vincent Tuohy was sure to

include a fireplace in the pub, something he says no

pub is complete without.

Vincent said they are

looking forward to opening

the pub’s patio for the summer,

which he said can get

crowded in those months

but provides a fun atmosphere

for patrons.

“You got to love this

business,” Vincent said.

“It’s the long days I don’t

love; they’re a bit daunting.

But I love the people,

and every day is different.

When people are in a pub,

you know they’re relaxing.

You’re getting people at

their best who are coming

here to enjoy themselves.”

SOCCER

Rutka is Messi-ing around against older competition

PATRICK Z. McGAVIN

Freelance Reporter

One of the unpredictable

qualities of soccer is that

skill and talent trump size.

The ability to play in the

air is important but it is not

a crucible of success.

The game is open to

multiple possibilities.

Presence, grace and a

knack for being in the center

of activity is of equal or

greater value.

Dominick Rutka fashions

his game in the manner

of Lionel Messi, the

great Argentine player who

has altered the calculus

of the game and how it is

played, watched and experienced,

as an electric and

dynamic 5-foot-7 forward.

Rutka is about 5-foot-6,

but his game transcends

numbers. A junior at Andrew,

he was the leading

scorer for the Thunderbolts

last fall in his first

year on the varsity.

The experience proved

exhilarating. The thrill of

the competition is what

truly excites him.

“I just like the feeling

when you win, or it’s a

close game and you put

everything you have into it

and just try to get the win,”

he said. “I love every part

of that.”

Father and son

Soccer is not just his

passion. It’s an integral

part of his growing up. His

father, Mariusz Rutka, is

his club coach as the director

of the U-19 program of

the South Suburban Academy,

a Lynwood-based

club program.

The team practices at

Freedom Field in Tinley

Park and at the In Ho

Chunk facility in Lynwood.

A native of Gdańsk,

Poland, Mariusz Rutka

arrived in the southwest

suburbs as a four-year old.

Dominick is the oldest of

his five children.

South Suburban Academy

culls together top players

from Mount Carmel,

Bremen, the Thornton coop

program and Rich East.

The program plays in Premier,

the top club for Illinois

programs.

Dominick Rutka has

parlayed his success with

Andrew to the club program.

As a 16-year old, he

is the youngest player on

the team. Anybody born

after the year 2000 is eligible

to compete.

Dominick is the leading

scorer for his club program.

Age is just that, a

number, and a rather arbitrary

one at that.

On the field, Dominick

Rutka is a whirl of activity

who plays with authority

and precision.

“He is small but he is

solid,” Mariusz Rutka

said. “He is quick and he

can run and he is fast with

the ball. That is what really

matters. He can beat

everybody to the ball.”

His achievements are

particularly impressive

given his precocity.

He has learned on the fly

how to fuse his skill level

to the speed and physicality

of club soccer.

“In club now, I am playing

with a lot of 19 years

old, so with Andrew, it was

similar to that because I

was a year or two younger

than most of the guys, so it

was a similar experience.”

Joining the revolution

Soccer has undergone a

cultural revolution in the

last three decades. It is

now mandatory for players

Andrew’s Dominick Rutka gets a leg up against Stagg in a match in the fall. Rutka is

currently playing up for the South Suburban Club. JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

of ambition who aspire to

play in college to hone and

develop their games and

technical skills through

year-round competition.

As numbers in football

have steadily declined,

those like Rutka who play

soccer for 10 or 11 months

have skyrocketed. The free

mixing of different age

groups creates a particular

dynamic.

“Varsity soccer at Andrew

is not easy, but it is

a little bit different compared

to club,” Dominick

Rutka said. “Club is faster

paced and maybe even

more physical because of

the age difference.”

He has thrown himself

into a rigorous workout to

get faster, working on his

speed, agility and quickness.

Rutka said he practices

on average 10 hours a

week, and he also spends

time with his cousins or

younger brothers developing

his skills.

It has come full circle.

He began playing in recreational

leagues in Tinley

Park when he was seven

years old. He matriculated

through the Bobcats’ program.

His father began

coaching him when he was

eight-year old.

Mariusz Rutka, who

goes affectionately by

“coach Mariusz,” is not

the Little League father.

The interplay between the

two is passionate and intense

and tends toward the

affectionate.

“He has been around

the game so much, and I

think what has happened

is he has gotten stronger

and faster but most important

he got smarter about

the game,” Mariusz Rutka

said.

“He knows where to be

at a certain time, in front of

the keeper or the box.”

Soccer is not just a platform

for his developing

abilities. It is an emotional

outlet, a point of identification.

He has his other

points of release or activities

to develop off the field.

“Personally, I’d say I

am kind of quiet, but once

you get to know me, I like

spending time with my

friends, family and just

hanging out, going to places,

traveling and playing

video games,” Dominick

Rutka said.

Few things ever stand

still in sports. As the South

Suburban Club moves

through the heart of the

spring club schedule,

Dominick Rutka knows to

take nothing for granted.

Early success is not always

a predictor of future

accomplishment.

“We always call him the

finisher,” Mariusz Rutka

said. “He is the top finisher

on our team. He’s a striker.

He is not a defender, he’s

not a midfielder. He is a

typical striker.

“He is very technical but

he also never slacks off

about the game. He gives

it 110 percent all the time.

He never gives up until the

whistle blows”

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

10 Questions

With Lilly Joy

Lilly Joy is a junior at

Tinley Park High School

who is a two-time state

qualifier in the pole vault

in girls track and field.

She is also on the Titans’

cheerleading team, which

made it to the state meet

in the winter.

What was the track

and field state meet

like for you last

year?

It was kind of crazy. I

just started pole vaulting

last year and then I made

it to state.

What made you start

vaulting so late in

your career?

My first coach [Keith

Huhn] asked me to come

out because I was a good

tumbler for cheerleading.

Now I’m here.

Why did he think you

could handle such a

tough event like pole

vaulting?

The run is kind of the

same as in cheerleading

and I have the upper body

strength needed.

What was the first

competitive vault like?

My first vault was at

a meet. I had not done

anything before then. I

think it was at 6-foot-6. I

was crazy nervous before

that.

Is there something

people don’t know

about vaulting?

It’s not as hard as it

looks.

Is college in the

picture, yet?

I would like to still cheer

and pole vault in college.

My top two choices right

now are Florida Tech and

Florida Southern. I want

to be a marine biologist

and the resources are right

there in Florida.

Do you have a

favorite food?

Tacos, I like them from

Mely’s. I love the chicken

taco.

Is there a food that

you wouldn’t eat even

for a million dollars?

Mushrooms.

Do you gave any

heroes you look up to?

My mom, Tracy. She is

in the military and has always

been tough on me.

That has helped me to not

be afraid to do stuff.

Is there anything

people don’t know

about you?

I’m afraid of a lot of

things, but I don’t show it.

Even in pole vaulting, I’m

always afraid right before

I go.

Mokena Foot & Ankle celebrates 25-years of providing

superior care to the Lincoln-Way Community

Dr. Phillip Narcissi

and Dr. Johnny Rossi

are honored to be named

the best podiatrist in the

South Suburbs in the 2019

Southwest Choice Awards.

Dr Narcissi started this

practice in 1993 as the first

ankle and foot specialist

in Mokena. “It seems like

yesterday I answered the

phone to schedule my first

patient.” He remembers

driving and walking through

Mokena trying to find office

space. Lucky for him, Dr.

Chip Patterson had office

space adjacent to his dental

practice become available.

With his families help,

he was able to build out

the space and begin the

practice. Dr. Narcissi

immediately became very

involved in the community

with volunteering, coaching

and forming the St Mary’s

Men’s club. Over the past 25

years, he and his wife Diane

continue to be involved in

Mokena as they raise their

six children. With a growing

practice, Dr. Narcissi moved

to their current location at

19841 Wolf Rd, added

additional offices in Hazel

Crest and Beecher and

hired Dr. Johnny Rossi. Dr.

Rossi was born and raised

in Lansing, Illinois. Also a

graduate of the University of

Illinois, he is married and has

three children. Dr. Rossi has

trained extensively in rear

foot and ankle surgery.

What sets Mokena Foot

and Ankle apart is they are

a family friendly, state of the

art, comprehensive practice

that takes care of all your

foot and ankle needs. In the

current age of corporate

and large group medical

practices Dr. Narcissi and

Dr. Rossi pride themselves

on staying on top of the most

cutting edge medical and

surgical techniques and new

advancements in medicine

while continuing with the

tradition of compassion

and empathy with a personal

touch. The staffs, Maureen,

Denise, Kelly and Delilah,

are friendly, accessible and

knowledgeable who will

know you by name and not

by number.

What has defined Dr.

Phillip Narcissi and Dr.

Rossi over the past 25 years

is not just their knowledge

and expertise but their

philosophy of conservative

care first approach. Although

both are board certified

surgeons by the American

Board of Foot and Ankle

Surgery and Fellows of the

American College of Foot

and Ankle Surgeons they

believe surgery should be

the last option. They pride

themselves on using the latest

techniques from platelet

enriched plasma to amniotic

cells to k-laser to encourage

the body to heal itself.

At Mokena Foot and

Ankle, your entire ankle

and foot needs can be

treated from children to

adults, sports medicine to

fractures, forefoot to ankle

surgery, diabetic routine

care to wound care, skin

to nail conditions, nerve

pain to neuropathy, with a

comprehensive more personal

medical environment.

Dr. Phillip Narcissi, Dr.

Johnny Rossi and the staff

of Mokena Foot and Ankle

would like to Thank You

for allowing us to be part

of your medical family and

community for the past 25

years and voting us as the

Five Titans - including two hurdlers - heading to state

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

It was unanimous.

When asked about the

recent success of Tinley

Park High School girls

track hurdlers, state qualifiers

Brooke Davis and

Autumn Jones joined Titans

head coach Wayde

Tabor in singing the praises

of assistant coach Nick

Johnston.

But Johnston was not

around to hear the singing.

Davis, a senior, won

the 300 meter low hurdles

event at the Class 2A

Thornridge Sectional in a

time of 48.20 seconds on

May 8 and Jones, a sophomore,

claimed second

in the 100 high hurdles

with a :17.39 and the two

will join Rebecca Beltran

(shot put and discus),

Anna Kovats (1,600 and

3,200) and Lilly Joy (pole

vault) at the Illinois High

School Association Girls

State Track Meet on Friday,

May 17 and Saturday,

May 18 at O’Brien Field

on the campus of Eastern

Illinois University in

Charleston.

It marks the third

straight year the Titans

sent a hurdler to state.

Johnston, who also

coaches hurdlers and

sprinters on the Titans

boys team, missed the

girls action as he was at

Hillcrest High School as

the boys competed in the

South Suburban Conference

Blue meet. He is on

a hot streak. Last year, the

boys sent two hurdlers to

state and Solomon Wilson-

Smith became the second

Titan in school history

and first runner to win a

state championship when

he won the Class 2A 110

hurdles in :13.98. Adell

Hilson did not make it to

Tinley Park senior distance runner Anna Kovats won

two Class 2A sectional championships at Thornridge

on May 8.

the second day last year,

but as a freshman at St.

Xavier University, he is rewriting

the record books as

he became the first hurdler

in school history to break

the 16-second barrier in

the 110 event.

Boys or girls, it makes

no difference, the man is

helping to produce some

strong runners.

“Coach J pushes us every

single practice,” Davis

said. “We work hard and

he always gives us that

boost.”

“He’s really strict and

he is always on us,” Jones

said. “He makes sure you

do what you are supposed

to do.”

Johnston said he was

happy when he heard reports

about the pair qualifying.

“What I like about

Brooke and Autumn is

they both play basketball

and they have that experience

of playing with

pressure and they are in

competition mode when

they come into track,”

Johnston said. “I like that

because in the hurdles,

you can’t just be fast.

You have to be tough,

fast and flexible among

other things, You have to

have a lot of body control,

which a lot of basketball

players have with their

jumping and hitting layups

and getting knocked

around.”

State Track Meet in hurdling events. PHOTOS BY JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

The Titans were also

hoping that junior Desiree

Lyttle, a sectional champion

in the 300 last year,

could make it a Titan Trio

in the hurdles but her seventh-place

finish in :53.10

in the 300 prevented her

from a second consecutive

trip to Charleston.

“She had a heck of a year

and we were waiting for

her to get a little faster and

we thought the sectional

would be the meet she

dropped some more time

and joined Brooke downstate

but it just wasn’t her

night,” Johnston said. “We

were hoping to get three

down but it didn’t work

out that way.’’

With two hurdling qualifiers

and a state champ for

the boys last year and two

qualifiers for the girls this

year, Johnston has a lot

to be proud of. This year,

however, it might be tough

for the boys to send a hurdler

to state because his

top candidates suffered

late-season injuries.

Titan notes

• It appears that Beltran,

who finished seventh in

the state in the discus last

year and 11th in the shot

put, has the best chance of

all the Titans of finishing

in the top 12 this year as

she was a sectional champ

in the shot (36 feet, 04.50

inches) and was second

in the discus (111-07).

She has thrown in the mid

120s in the discus earlier

this season.

• Elmhurst Collegebound

Kovats won two

sectional titles in long distance

events, claiming the

3,200 in 12:31.97 (more

than a minute in front of

the next competitor) and

the 1,600 (5:42.05).

Joy earned a sectional

title in the pole vault with

a 7-1. It will be her second

year down state.

• For the second year in

a row, Tabor and the team

celebrated a successful

sectional performance at

the Plush Horse in Tinley

Park. The Titans finished

fourth in the sectional with

71 points. Before Tabor’s

arrival, it was hard for the

Titans to score double-digit

figures in points.

Food for thought for

those who aren’t

very hungry:

Andrew’s boys volleyball

team is improving,

but in recent years it has

not been a powerhouse.

Despite that, the Thunderbolts

have something

to brag about that most

teams cannot.

In the past four seasons,

the NCAA Division I-II

national Final Four in

men’s volleyball has had

an Andrew player on the

roster.

In 2016 and 2017, Sanil

Thomas was on Ohio

State University’s roster

when the Buckeyes won

national championships.

In 2018, he was with

the Buckeyes when they

made it to the Final Four.

It was a rough season

for the Buckeyes in 2019

as they finished with a

rare sub-.500 mark at

10-19 and 35-year coach

Pete Hanson announced

his retirement. Thomas

and OSU were nowhere

near the Final Four this

year.

But Lewis University

was.

The Flyers put together

a huge season to make it

that far and former Andrew

player Nick Vander

Zanden, a 6-foot-8 middle

hitter, is on the roster.

The senior closed his

career with 22 kills in 15

matches. At Andrew, he

had a .386 hitting percentage

with 139 kills and 69

blocks his senior season.

SXU x 2

Both St. Xavier University’s

baseball and softball

teams qualified for the

postseason.

The baseball team was

scheduled to open play in

the NAIA Opening Round

Tournament on Monday,

May 13.

Three former Andrew

players are on the Cougars’

roster.

Jake Ruppert is on the

roster. He is a left-handed

pitcher and entered the

postseason with a 1-1

mark and a 5.95 in six appearances,

including four

starts.

David Chianelli has

become a dangerous pinch

runner as he has scored 31

runs in 37 games.

Freshman catcher Otto

Zimmerman is also on

the roster but did not see

action.

The softball squad also

was scheduled to play

in the NAIA Opening

Round Tournament on

Monday, May 13.

Three Tinley Park High

School graduates are on

the Cougars’ roster.

Junior Lexxie Lux

is enjoying a breakout

season as she hit .411 with

32 RBI and eight triples

and was named to the all-

Chicagoland Collegiate

Athletic Conference first

team for the second year

in a row,

Junior pitcher Annalisse

Scott was 3-3 with a 5.43

ERA in 11 appearances,

including eight starts.

Senior Liz Brzezinski

played in 33 career games

with the team and hit .313

in 2016.

Serafini honored

Tinley Park High

School’s Kayla Serafini

was named as the Titans’

Female Athlete of the Year

during a senior honors

night.

But if you look at the

story on page 42 in The

Tinley Park Junction

about 16 Titans recognized

for heading to

colleges to continue their

academic and athletic

careers, you will not find

her name.

Serafini said she is giving

up sports to concentrate

on schoolwork in

college. She still has a few

weeks of softball to work

on before she leaves the

school.

When it came to basketball

and softball, I will

always have memories

of her flying around and

hitting the ground and/

or stands trying to catch

up with the ball. If I had a

dollar for every time I saw

her making a dangerous

hustle play, I could donate

so much money to the

school that officials would

name the new field house

after me.
