Fired soccer coach sues Loyola Academy for false accusations, defamation

Michal Dwojak

Contributing Sports Editor

Craig Snower, the former

Loyola Academy girls

soccer coach, is suing the

Wilmette school for more

than $250,000 in damages,

according to a lawsuit

filed Thursday, May 9, in

the Cook County Circuit

Court.

In the lawsuit, Snower

seeks to recover damages

as a result of Loyola’s actions

in his firing based on

“false, unfound, unsubstantiated”

accusations of

sexual misconduct, recklessly

and without reasonable

cause reporting him to

the police and the Department

of Children and Family

Services, defaming him

in his professional reputation

as a coach, while also

“tortiously interfering with

his contractual relationship

with FC United Soccer

Club.”

In his suit filed by attorney

Susan Bogart, Snower

claims he has “hundreds

of soccer players who attribute

their success to his

rigorous coaching” and

that each of them can attest

Snower has not made inappropriate

sexual comments

at any time during the years

he coached them.

The lawsuit comes over

a year after the school fired

Snower on May 10, 2018,

over allegations of inappropriate

or offensive comments

toward team members.

Snower had been the

coach for the program since

2004.

According to the suit,

former Loyola principal

Kathryn Baal and thenathletic

director Patrick

Mahoney met with Snower

and told him he was fired,

citing complaints from students

and parents, whom

Loyola refused to identify.

Baal provided two examples;

the first being Snower

fielded two teams to scrimmage,

one called “virgins”

and the other “non-virgins.”

Snower called the allegation

a rumor that circulated

eight years before involving

an FC United team.

The second allegation

was that Snower asked

what a player would do if

he touched her butt, a claim

Snower again denied as

a rumor circulated from

an FC United team, not a

Loyola team.

According to the suit,

Snower was not given a

chance to defend himself

and Baal said she wanted

him to resign from FC

United because of the

amount of Loyola students

competing with the club.

Snower claimed there were

no Loyola students on his

teams, let alone high school

students, to which Baal allegedly

responded said

she’d tell the club “what we

have on you.”

Mahoney and Baal allegedly

met with the girls

varsity soccer players after

their meeting with Snower,

where they told the players

Snower had been fired and

apologized for not acting

sooner.

Later that night, Baal allegedly

reported Snower

to the DCFS with “malice

and reckless disregard

to the truth” that he made

“outrageous, suggestive

comments” and other false

statements to five players.

Snower claims he was

never given a chance to respond

to.

The next day, Snower

met with Chad Gruen,

owner and president SMP

— FC United’s parent company

— who allegedly told

Snower he had no choice

but to let him go.

As The Beacon first reported,

players met with

Wilmette and Glenview

police departments, where

players commented on how

Snower was a vulgar bully

Craig Snower, the former varsity girls soccer coach at

Loyola Academy, was fired in May 2018. 22nd Century

Media File Photo

and tyrant who maintained

a “hot moms list,” told a

player he would kick her

“in the vagina” and constantly

commented on

players’ chest sizes. The

suit claims that while some

players asserted Snower

made the comments, other

players on the team made

the comments.

Because of this, Snower

claimed in the suit that

Loyola defamed him, lowered

his reputation in the

eyes of parents, players and

the greater soccer community,

which caused and deterred

others from associating

with him.

Snower also claimed the

accusations caused the Illinois

Youth Soccer Association

to disqualify him from

all Illinois Youth Soccerrelated

activities.

Neither Loyola Academy

nor Snower’s representatives

could be reached for

comment as of press time.

Outgoing trustees bid farewell; new members begin service

Todd Marver

The Wilmette Village

Board welcomed two new

trustees, while also bidding

farewell to a pair of outgoing

trustees at its Tuesday,

May 14 meeting.

Julie Wolf was elected

trustee in April 2011. She

served as the chair of the

board’s Administration

Committee and also served

on the Public Safety and

Municipal Services Committees.

Prior to her service

as trustee, she served on

Public Art Committee from

2002-2003 and the Appearance

Wolf will continue her service

Energy Commission.

“I’ve commented to everyone

how well-balanced

the board is,” Wolf said.

“We don’t always agree

but we find a way to work

together. It really has been

a pleasure working with all

of you. The new board will

be very strong and you’ll

be able to continue some of

the initiatives that are helping

the Village so much.”

Village President Bob

Bielinski and Wolf began

their service on the Village

Board together in 2011

when they were both elected

trustee.

“There’s sort of a certain

special thing for me

because you and I have

served the whole time and

I still remember some of

the coffees that we attended

together as a candidate

and the like,” Bielinski

said. “Thank you for your

Kenilworth celebrates 100 years of Memorial Day parades

Alexa Burnell

Freelance Reporter

For the past 100 years,

the threat of rain on the

third Sunday in May has

left many North Shore

residents cursing the day,

but not the folks in Kenilworth.

They know full

well that on that day, during

the annual Memorial

Day Parade, the clouds

will part and the sun will

shine, just in time to honor

those who gave the ultimate

sacrifice.

While rumors have

swirled for years as to the

reason why Kenilworth

holds its parade one week

earlier than all other North

Shore villages, Kenilworth

Village President Ann Potter

set the record straight.

“One hundred years ago,

the Kenilworth Memorial

Parade came to be, as a

request to have a ‘practice

parade’ one week before

Wilmette, Winnetka and

other towns hosted their

own parades. The trial run

was a success and a tradition

was born.” Potter said.

Along with recognizing

the parade’s centennial

year, Potter gave her respects

to Boy Scout Troop

13, who simultaneously

celebrated their 100th anniversary,

playing a critical

role in the parade from

day one.

“Civic engagement is

what Troop 13 is all about.

They give to this community

in so many ways, including

their commitment

to this parade,” Potter said.

“They lead a good example,

teaching us all how

important it is to engage in

our community.”

Next, resident Sue Cannon,

a proud military

mom, took to the podium,

reading the names and

ranks of all Kenilworth

residents who have served.

Boy Scout Troop 13 then

raised both the Kenilworth

and American flags and the

Joseph Sears eighth-grade

choir sang the National

Anthem.

Dr. Rev. Jason Parkin, of

Holy Comforter, presented

the Memorial address, encouraging

all to reflect on

the lyrics of the patriotic

hymn.

“We’ve heard the

words of the National

Anthem dozens of times,

hundreds of time. As I

prepared this address, I

reflected on the patriotic

songs of other countries,

realizing that our Anthem

is the only one that ends

in question. These words

remind us that our ultimate

freedom is always

an open-ended question.

In order to remain the

land of the free and the

home of the brave, we

need to constantly renew

and maintain our appreciation

for our freedom,”

Parkin said. “Today, we

gather to pay respect for

those who died for our

freedom, peace and justice.

Let us all remember

this sobering statisticsince

the introduction

of the National Anthem,

1,345,000 people have

lost their lives, while protecting

our freedom.”

After Parkin’s moving

speech, Kenilworth Scouts

Kenilworth adventurers (left to right) Carolina Conrad,

8, Caroline Gottschall, 7, Sailor Martin, 8, Abigail Dixton,

8, and Caroline Menton, 8, line up for the start of the

parade. Rhonda Holcomb/22nd Century Media

placed wreaths in honor of

the fallen Kenilworth heroes

and Jack Seminetta,

of Troop 13, played Taps.

Dr. Katie Lancaster, of

Kenilworth Union Church,

gave the Benediction, referencing

words from an

emotional song.

Newly opened Wilmette Eye Care treats patients like family

Hilary Anderson

Freelance Reporter

The eyes have a new

friend.

It is Wilmette’s Eye

Care, operated by optometrist

Dr. Andrew Kohn O.D.

He recently opened an office

in downtown Wilmette

at 1125 Greenleaf Ave.

“I was in practice for

about 10 years and decided

to open my own office,”

Kohn said. “I grew up in

Wauwatosa, Wis. and was

looking for an established

community in the Chicago

area that while urban still

had a strong community

feeling. Building a good

practice was important to

me but finding one where

I could grow it with family

loyalty from the residents

was important. After looking

around, I found Wilmette

to be such a place.”

Kohn is the first in his

immediate family to select

eye care as his profession.

“My dad is a criminal

defense attorney and my

mother is a teacher,” he

said. “I was drawn to this

profession where I could

help people and make a

positive impact. Eye care

over the years has not had

the best history and yet we

are so reliant on our eyes

and vision. I want to make

a positive difference in

people’s lives.”

Kohn continued that his

optometric practice has the

“human” component and

patients are not just a chart

number.

“My patients are pleasantly

surprised to find they

are not faceless individuals

who are pushed through

the office like a cog in a

machine,” he said. “When

people come here, they

feel like family. They are

excited to tell us what is

going on in their lives and

we enjoy hearing about

their activities. I think they

also will be amazed to see

all the high-tech equipment

we have in the office. One

of them is a retinal camera,

which can take photos

of the inside of a patient’s

eyes and that will help detect

eye diseases and others

[diseases].”

Yet another reason he

chose Wilmette to establish

his practice is because of its

emphasis on recycling and

going green.

“I frequently looked at

the Go Green Wilmette

website before making

my decision and was impressed

with all the things

residents were doing to

recycle and help the environment,”

Kohn said. “I

still am amazed at all the

sustainable activities to reduce

carbon footprints in

the community.”

His office has a recycling

program for contact lenses.

“I want to keep contact

lenses out of the trash,”

Kohn said. “People not

only can throw out their old

contact lenses but also the

blister packs and cardboard

packaging in which they

come. This can be especially

good for those who

daily wear disposable contact

lenses. We send them

to One by One, a recycling

company.”

Giving back to the community

is important to Dr.

Kohn. He serves as president

of the Illinois chapter

of VOSH — Volunteer

Optometric Services to Humanity.

“I am passionate about

volunteering and giving

back to the community,”

he said. “The organization,

VOSH, provides eye care

to underserved populations

in Honduras, Mexico and

Haiti among others. Domestically

we work with

homeless shelters.”

Both Kohn and his wife,

Jennifer who also is an optometrist,

volunteer time

visiting, fitting and providing

glasses for those living

in countries like Honduras

and Haiti where the poverty

is great.

“People barely have the

wherewithal to buy food

let alone get glasses so they

can see better,” he said.

“Frame and glass companies

sometimes donate

glasses. We also accept

donations of old glasses

from patients and the public.

They can drop them off

here at our office any time.”

Kohn also volunteers

with the Blind Service Association,

which provides

reading and writing services

for those living in the

Chicago area. Dr. Kohn has

served as a board member

since 2015.

Kohn graduated from the

University of Wisconsin at

Madison with a bachelor’s

degree in biology and later

attended Indiana University

School of Optometry, where

he obtained his doctorate

and met his wife, Jennifer.

“I think you will find it to

be a good experience coming

to our office,” he said.

“You can make an appointment

online or call us.”

Outgoing commissioners attend final meeting

Todd Marver

Freelance Reporter

A quartet of veteran

Wilmette Park Board

commissioners attended

their final meeting on

Monday, May 13. The

board bid farewell to four

commissioners including

Stephanie Foster, Shelley

Shelly, John Olvany

and Ryrie Pellaton. Foster

has served on the park

board since May 2015.

During her time in office,

she has been a member

and chair of the Facilities

Operations and Golf Operations

Committees. She

has also been a member

of the Lakefront Committee,

Parks and Recreation

Committee and Intergovernmental

Cooperation

Committee.

“She’s been so thoughtful

and has given us such

great guidance and perspective

when it comes

to all the projects we’ve

worked on,” board president

Amy Wolfe said.

“She’s not afraid to stand

up for what she knows is

right and to do the right

thing, even when it’s been

hard. I’m so thankful for

all your hard work on this

board and you will definitely

be missed.”

Olvany has served on

the park board since September

2011. During his

a member and chair of the

Financial Planning and

Policy Committee, Golf

and Real Estate Committee.

He has also been a

member of the Lakefront

and Facilities Operations

Committee. He has also

served as both president

and vice president of the

board during his time in

office.

“We also would like to

thank him for all of his

service,” Wolfe said. “He

always pushed us to be

better and think of creative

ways to come up

with a solution. He was

such a hard worker when

it came to everything on

the park district and he

will greatly be missed.”

Pellaton has served on

the board since May 2015.

During his time in office,

he has been a member and

chair of the Lakefront and

Facilities Operations Committees.

He has also been a

member of the Financial

Planning and Policy Committee,

Parks and Recreation

Committee, Golf

Operations Committee and

Real Estate Committee.

“We would like to thank

Ryrie for his four long

years of service,” Wolfe

said. “Especially all of

the hard work he did on

the Lakefront Committee

leading that charge, sitting

through lots of long

meetings and just being so

calm and taking in everybody’s

perspective. And

keeping us on task, keeping

us on budget and always

giving a thoughtful

response to everyone.”

Shelley Shelly, the outgoing

vice president of

the board, has served on

the park board since May

in office, she has been

a member and chair of

been such a great sounding

board to me and to everyone

on the board. She

always had such great out

of the box solutions. She

always came up with great

solutions to problems and

always gave wonderful

perspective and has

worked tirelessly on lakefront

and everything else

she’s done here.”

In addition to saying

goodbye to four commissioners,

the board also welcomed

four new commissioners

Regina students advance to

finals of national history contest

Submitted by Regina

Dominican High School

Posted to WilmetteBeaconDaily.com 7 days ago

Regina Dominican High

School has several students

who successfully competed

in the Chicago Metro History

Fair and have qualified

to advance to the National

History Day Contest this

June in Maryland.

The National History

Day Contest encourages

more than half a million

students around the world to

conduct historical research

on a topic of their choice.

Students enter these

projects at the local level

(here it is at the Chicago

Metro History Fair), with

top students advancing to

the National Contest at the

University of Maryland at

College Park. From each

state only two entries from

the 10 categories compete

in the Nationals.

Regina Dominican sophomore

Anne Berg qualified

with her entry in the

Documentary category,

titled The WPA School

Mural Project: A Missed

Educational Opportunity.

The film explores the impact

and contribution of

the WPA (Works Progress

Administration) Art project

and the fact that so

few schools leveraged the

works (which they housed

and do still today) as a tool

to teach students about that

era and the impact the initiative

had on our nation’s

culture and growth.

Sophomores Grace

Langfels, Kayla Smith,

Maggie Stutz and Mia

Touhy will also be headed

to the National History Day

contest for their entry in the

Performance category titled

The Our Lady of Angels

A Word From The (Former) President

Posted to WilmetteBeaconDaily.com 2 days ago

Refugees need more than just being ‘let in’

John Jacoby

Contributing Columnist

Last Memorial Day,

I told the inspiring

story of Wilmette

residents Margaret and

Alfred Abeles. Their son,

Beecher, a P-38 fighterbomber

pilot, was shot

down and killed as World

War II neared its end. The

Abeles honored Beecher

by creating a living

memorial: they sponsored

a War refugee to live at

their home and receive

the higher education they

had planned for Beecher.

Members of Wilmette’s

Congregational Church

rallied around this idea,

and the outcome was a

program that provided

housing, employment,

and educational help for

hundreds of refugees.

Several months ago, I

met a beneficiary of this

program — Wilmette resident

Tibor Ipavic. He told

me about his parents, Teodor

and Fanči. In 1941,

when the Axis invaded

the Kingdom of Yugoslavia,

Teodor, a Slovenia

native, was a 28-year-old

member of the Royal

Yugoslav Air Force. He

joined the resistance when

the Kingdom surrendered

shortly after the invasion.

Fanči was a 14-year-old

girl living in Bosnia. The

fighting forced her family

to relocate to Slovenia in

1943.

Marshal Tito came to

power after the War and

unified Yugoslavia as a

totalitarian communist regime.

As the years passed,

Teodor worked at an art

museum and learned the

craft of art restoration.

Fanči was an opera singer.

They became a couple

after their first marriages

ended in divorce. Fanči

was desperate to escape

the suppression and depravation

that prevailed under

Tito. In 1952, an opportunity

arose. Teodor had

papers that allowed him to

travel to Austria. Without

telling family members

about their plans, they

crossed the border and

became refugees.

The U.S., Canada, and

Australia were accepting

refugees from communist

countries. The relocation

process was supposed to

take three months, but

Teador and Fanči’s applications

were lost for

three years. Meanwhile,

in 1955, the two were

married. They lived in

a Graz apartment with

another family, and their

first daughter was born.

Teodor was able to scratch

out a small income, barely

enough to survive. They

were harassed by Austrian

officials who were inhospitable

to Slavs crossing

their border.

Their time finally came.

The IpavIc family arrived

in Wilmette in October

1956, sponsored by the

Congregational Church.

They spoke no English.

Unknown to the Church

members awaiting their

arrival at the train station,

the birth of their son,

Tibor, was imminent. The

family briefly stayed with

the Abeles, while Dr. Alvah

Newcomb, a Church

member and pediatrician

at Evanston Hospital, arranged

for Fanči’s medical

care.

The Church provided an

apartment for the family

in Evanston. They learned

English. Fanči worked at

Bennison’s Bakery. Teodor

worked at Newcomb-

Macklin Co., an art shop

in Chicago. In 1962, with

financial assistance from

another Church member,

Robert Muir, they

purchased a home at 219

Third Street, Wilmette.

In 1963, a third child was

born. In 1964, they became

citizens, and Teodor

opened his own framing

and restoration business at

424 Linden Avenue. The

generosity and support

of the Congregational

Church enabled the Ipavic

family to escape misery,

become independent, and

contribute to their adopted

country.

eric@wilmettebeacon.com

Since becoming editor

of The Wilmette

Beacon in 2015, one

of my annual tasks has

been to put together the

list of the brave men and

women from Wilmette

and Kenilworth that died

in battle in a number of

different wars.

The list is made up of

131 heroes that died in

the Civil War, Spanish-

American War, World War

I, World War II, Korean

War, Vietnam War and

Lebanon Expedition.

Back when our country

fought in the Gulf War

(1990-1991), I was nearing

the end of my high school

career and not sure what

I wanted to do in college.

Being the grandson of a

World War II veteran, the

military was a possibility.

The combination of being

proud of my grandfather

and the patriotic fervor in

the country at the time resulted

in me heading down

to the military recruitment

office to learn a little more.

While there, I spoke with

a recruiter and took a

generic written test. I even

scheduled to come back

and take a physical the following

week. I never made

it back. I’m not afraid to

say I got scared and didn’t

go through with it.

In the years that have

followed that decision,

my pacifist views have

become greater, but so

has my admiration for our

troops, especially those

who gave the ultimate sacrifice

on the battlefield.

This year, The Beacon

covered the annual

Kenilworth Memorial

Day Parade last weekend

(Page 4). This is always

an important annual

event on the calendar for

residents of the village

and beyond. We’ll also

be in downtown Wilmette

10:30 a.m. Monday, May

27, for the parade and

service there.

While many will

celebrate Memorial Day

weekend with barbecues,

fireworks and other fun

activities, it’s important

to always remember what

the true meaning of the

holiday is.

“New Trier received a surprise email from the

Letters to the Editor

Treblinka was an

extermination camp

I read John Jacoby’s

article (May 2 edition)

in which he noted that J.

Marion Gutnayer’s father

was sent to Treblinka Concentration

Camp. The substance

of the article is interesting

but I believe that

it is very important to call

Treblinka exactly what it

was — an extermination

camp! Yes, people were

concentrated there but they

were concentrated there

specifically for the purpose

of extermination.

I realize that concentration

camp is the description

we learned to call

the enormous number of

camps and sub-camps in

the Hitler’s horror show

but Treblinka, Sobibor,

and Belzec were only for

extermination and it is vital

that we use the most

accurate description possible.

of refugees to be resettled

in America -- people from

countries like Afghanistan

and Syria who can’t

return to their homeland

“because of persecution

or a well-founded fear of

persecution”. However,

many resettled refugees

flounder because the U.S.

government “just dumps

them in communities”

with inadequate funding

and support. But there’s

hope. Together, the Wilmette

Rotary Club and

Northwestern University

have created a pilot program

to demonstrate how

refugees, with planning,

mentoring, and support,

can successfully move

from “short-term survival

to long-term success.” The

Club donated $7,000 to

fund the pilot and created

a 501(c)(3) organization

called “COMPASS”

(an acronym) for future

fundraising. NU Professor

Galya Ben-Arieh created

the “Refugee Knowledge

Hub” to coordinate all

types of assistance. Three

local refugee families are

participating in the pilot.

The Club hopes that it

will be successful and

will serve as a model for

other clubs throughout the

country.

Annual show utilizes iconic music to showcase skaters

Alexa Burnell

Freelance Reporter

Anyone suffering from

a case of the blues found

an uplifting antidote at

the 44th annual Wilmette

Park District Ice Show

held May 17-19 at Centennial

Rink in Wilmette.

This year’s show, “La

Dolce Vita,” was conceived

on the belief that

everyone can benefit by

listening to some of the

most iconic music while

watching local youth

skate the weekend away.

The show’s director,

Vickie Tassone, explained

how the theme for the beloved

yearly tradition usually

comes after several

brainstorming sessions

among coworkers. This

year, with all the troubling

news making the

headlines, the gang collectively

agreed that their

primary objective was to

get the audience dancing

in their seats, leaving the

production feeling happier

than ever.

“[The show] is all about

fun. There is no pressure

for the skaters other than

to have a great time and

showcase their skills.

For the audience, it’s all

about getting lost in the

music and artistry,” Tassone

said. “The songs we

selected represent different

times in one’s life

that were positive, light

and memorable. We have

some childhood favorites

mixed in with songs

that embrace that teenage

angst, like ‘My Generation.’”

For Wilmette skater Katie

Bielinski, a sophomore

at Loyola Academy, the

chance to unwind on the

ice and have some fun

with fellow athletes is the

best part of the show.

“This is definitely the

most fun skating event

and also the most supportive.

All skaters, of all abilities

and ages, cheer one

another on, excited to put

on a great performance together,”

Bielinski said.

For competitive skaters

like Dylan Podvalny, 10,

of Glencoe, the chance

to kick back and relax

at a performance after a

string of competitions this

winter, was a welcomed

break. He placed at sectionals

in February, giving

him the opportunity

to skate in group and solo

performances during the

ice show. Podvalny skated

to “My Generation” and

“Rich Life” in a group

format and also wowed

the audience with his solo

performance to James

Brown’s “I feel Good,”

enjoying the chance to let

the music move him.

“I love the ice show,

because there is no competition.

It’s just all about

having fun and skating for

the love of it,” he said.

Podvalny‘s little sister,

Ornella, 8, also skated at

the ice show, sharing that

putting a smile on the face

of the audience is the best

part.

“I love this show because

it is not stressful,”

she said. “My favorite

part is knowing that we

are entertaining people

with fun songs and great

skating.”

New name of merged Wilmette churches announced

Hilary Anderson

Freelance Reporter

Wilmette’s St. Joseph

and St. Francis Xavier parishes

soon will unite and

have a new name.

The two parishes formally

will become one

entity July 1 and be called

Saints Joseph and Francis

Xavier.

“I received word yesterday,

May 14, from Cardinal

Blasé’ Cupich that he

has chosen a name, based

on the feedback and input

from our parishioners

from both churches sent

to him,” said Rev. Wayne

Watts, pastor of St. Joseph

Church, who will serve as

pastor for the unified parishes.

Rev. William Netstraeter

established Wilmette’s St.

Joseph Church in 1872

and Rev. Edmund Byrnes

founded St. Francis Xavier

in 1904.

“This new name honors

and pays tribute to our rich

histories and legacies and

combining as one seems

appropriate,” Watts said.

“This honor and unification

is played out well

in the mission statement

on which the joint parish

councils worked together

with me. The work of this

team and the Cross Functional

Team is appreciated.

Dozens of parishioners

from both churches have

given of their time for oneness

in Wilmette.”

These changes reflect

not only the history and

growth of the area but societal

ones as well.

Other parishes throughout

the Chicago Archdiocesan

are uniting similarly.

Most recently Northfield’s

St. Philip and Hubbard

Woods’ Sacred Heart

united to become the Divine

Mercy parish.

They are the result of

meetings and feedback

from representatives from

each parish in an Archdiocesan

program, Renew

My Church. The program,

which began in September

2015, looked at the future

church, parish and school

structures.

“These changes are necessary

because the times

are changing,” said Rev.

Jason Mulave, liaison of

Cupich for the Renew My

Church process.

“We cannot put our

heads in the sand and

pretend there are enough

priests, as before. We no

longer are the church of

20, 40 years ago. There

are fewer people in the

pews these days. We need

to build our Catholic communities.”

He added the Chicago

Archdiocese will have

only about 240 priests in

2030 to serve as pastors.

According to early 2018

statistics, there were 347

Catholic parishes in Lake

and Cook County. Active

archdiocesan priests numbered

431 with 225 retired

ones.

That does not include

priests from religious orders.

About half of the

retired ones help out at

parishes and 50 percent of

the retired priests are more

than 80 years old.

In celebration of the new

SS. Joseph and Francis

Xavier parish, there will be

a Unity Mas 10 a.m. June

30 at Wilmette’s Vattman

Park, Lake and Park Avenues.

A free picnic lunch

will follow. Food trucks

also will be available to

purchase additional food.

In case of rain, the Unity

Mass will be held indoors

at St. Joseph Church and

lunch will be served in the

St. Joseph School gym.

Wilmette’s St. Francis Xavier will merge with St. Joseph July 1. Photos submitted

St. Joseph’s Rev. Wayne Watts will serve as pastor for the unified churches.

Garden View Cafe’s new menu connects with nature

Megan Bernard

Contributing Editor

Posted to WilmetteBeaconDaily.com 2 days ago

Diners at Chicago Botanic

Garden’s Garden

View Cafe get more than a

meal — they get an experience.

The cafe, located inside

the garden in the Village of

Glencoe, provides views

overlooking the blooming

garden and a new menu

tying into this summer’s

pollinator program called

Bees and Beyond.

The subject matter of the

program is timely, according

to Julie McCaffrey, the

public relations manager.

“There is an urgency to

protect pollinators while

we still can,” McCaffrey

said in a press release.

“Pollinators are fundamentally

connected to

plants, therefore, life.”

The toasted almond salmon salad ($13.99) has baby

greens, almonds, avocado, celery ribbons, red onion

and lemon-dill ranch.

The cafe’s new menu

was launched this spring

before the garden-wide

program began, giving

a glimpse into what’s to

come this summer. The

food is local and sustainably

produced with seasonal

ingredients made by

pollinators, said executive

chef Mike Hiller.

“We wanted to actually

embody the whole pollinators

concept and theme and

not just call everything the

‘honey bee this’ or ‘honey

bee that,’” Hiller said.

“When you actually start

May 23 through July 7

The honey bee forager salad ($12.99) comes with dandelion greens, mustard greens,

Media

digging into the pollinator

issue, you realize it’s a

lot more than just bees. …

We’re also drawing more

attention to plants and how

they can help this issue.”

A group of 22nd Century

Media editors recently visited

the garden to try some

of the fresh pollinator-inspired

dishes ourselves.

On the new menu is a

honey bee forager salad,

which is comprised of

dandelion greens, mustard

greens, spring mix, Granny

Smith apples, roasted corn,

slivered almonds, crumbled

feta and raspberry honey.

Hiller mentioned that

bees thrive on dandelions

and other forager plants,

like mustard greens, so it

was important to highlight

them at the cafe in this salad.

“I was pretty naive before

this all,” he said. “You

always think pollination

occurs and you don’t really

think about it or who does

it or the impact it has. …

The more you dive into it,

the more you find out that

certain plants change their

entire flower to attract specific

pollinators that might

be in the area.”

The dandelion greens

sparked our interest; however,

they were subtle and

not overpowering. The salad

itself was so fresh and

flavorful, drizzled with the

raspberry honey.

Another salad we sampled

was the toasted almond

salmon salad, which

has Chicago Botanic Garden-grown

baby greens,

toasted almonds, avocado,

celery ribbons, red onion

and lemon-dill ranch.

According to Hiller,

the success of growing

almonds is “100 percent

dependent on bees,” therefore

it fits perfectly on this

menu.

This salad could be a

meal in itself; it’s hearty

with the tender salmon atop

and it is complemented

well with the greens, almonds,

and dressing.

We completed our lunch

with roast apple and brie

grilled cheese, complete

with roasted local apple,

brie, sliced red onion and

clover honey drizzle on

buttery hand-sliced challah

bread. Our staff loved this

fun take on grilled cheese.

It was savory and packed

more flavor between the

apple, cheese and onion ingredients.

The cafe also serves a

complete breakfast menu.

Some highlights include: a

chorizo and pepper skillet,

spring berry custard, and

lemon-blueberry pancakes.

There are also coffeehouse

favorites, sprouts (kids)

meals and brunch (offered

Saturday-Sunday).

Visitors can eat their

meal in the cafe’s indoor

dining area, or choose a

table outside on the deck

overlooking a pond. Vegetarian

and gluten-free options

are also available.

The pollinator theme is

not only expressed at the

cafe, but throughout the

entire garden this summer,

revealing the vital role pollinators

play in our everyday

lives and in a healthy,

diverse planet, according to

the garden’s website. The

program offers pollinatorthemed

gardens, bold topiaries

and floral carpets, an

interactive exhibition, and

more.

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Andrew Kost

The New Trier pitcher was

also a member of the boys

basketball team.

Do you have any

superstitions before,

during or after a

game?

I eat a peanut butter and

jelly sandwich before every

game and go through

the same stretching and

throwing routine.

What’s one thing

people don’t know

about you?

I can solve a Rubik’s

cube.

What’s your greatest

skill?

I excel in MLB the

Show 13 on the PS3.

If you could travel

anywhere in the

world, where would it

be and why?

I would travel to Rome

because there is a lot of

history and good food.

If you could have one

meal for the rest of

your life, what would

it be and from where

or who would make

it?

Potbelly’s turkey club

with avocado.

If you won the lottery,

what would you do

with the money?

Invest most of it and

then take a trip to Vegas

with the boys.

If you could play

another sport (other

than basketball and

baseball), what would

it be and why?

I would play tennis or

golf because I enjoy playing

them during the summer.

22nd Century Media File Photo

Who is your dream

dinner guest?

My grandpa because I

never got a chance to meet

him and he was very influential

in my parents’ lives.

What’s the biggest

difference between

playing baseball and

basketball?

Basketball is a back

and forth game, requiring

bursts of maximum energy

and improvisation, while

baseball is a slower paced

game giving you time to

regroup after each pitch.

What’s the hardest part

about playing baseball?

Baseball is a game of

failure, so overcoming the

mental adversity is critical.

The most challenging part

about pitching is using all

your pitches to keep the

hitter off balance.

“I thought this was going

going to be,” New Trier

coach Mark Wukas said.

“We were all in on the

relays and I couldn’t be

happier with their performance.”

In what Wukas thought

which is exactly what the

senior did.

“This is so good,” Ulrich

said. “We are going

out with a bang.”

The Trevians are no

strangers to placing at the

state finals or even winning

the state championship

in the 3,200-meter

relay. They accomplished

the feat earlier in the decade,

racing to the championship

in Class 3A in

2013. Since 2010, the Trevians

have been among

the top nine teams in the

state in the 3,200-meter

would be a rebuilding year,

the Trevians would finish

with five state qualifiers,

including three relays.

The 3,200 relay took

third in 7:58.14, the 400

relay second in 42.98 and

1,600 relay third in 3:24.53.

New Trier also had

two individuals qualify

in Ford Baker, who took

fourth in the 3,200 run in

a time of 9:23.12, and Patrick

Kaufman, who took

second in the 110-meter

high hurdles with a time

of 15.16. Baker’s time

relay a total of six times.

New Trier also was a

force in the final relay of

the day, the 1,600-meter

relay. Once again, Sullivan

ran the anchor leg.

The squad finished third

in 3:55.90. In addition to

Sullivan, junior Bridget

Forbes was also a member

of the relay, running third

leg. The two paired with

senior Sydney Kunkler

and sophomore Bridget

Vitu. The winning time

was posted by Homewood-Flossmoor,

who ran

3:49.92 to win by over

five seconds.

The Trevians also had

four individual competitors

in the finals, as both

was an improvement over

his seed time of 9:31.07

and Kaufman over his

time of 15.6.

“I woke up last night in

a cold sweat worried we

wouldn’t qualify anybody

and we weren’t going to

take anybody to state,” Wukas

said. “My fears grew

groundless and after we

qualified in the 4x800 and

4x100, it made this meet a

while lot more enjoyable.

“I’m really happy with

the guys and the job

they’ve done.”

Braband and Sullivan

ran in the 800-meter run,

while Ellie Finnigan and

Marlee Fradkin competed

in the 3,200-meter run.

Braband earned allstate

status in the 800-meter

run. The sophomore

will have an opportunity

to improve on her eightplace

finish next year.

She finished in 2:15.88.

Sullivan finished 11th in

2:17.77.

Finnigan and Fradkin

both ran in the slow heat

of the 3,200-meter run.

Finnigan finished in 25th,

crossing the finish line in

Loveland wins sectional title; NT, LA athletes head to state

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

Coming down the final

straightaway, Jack Loveland

knew he needed to get

his last kick into high drive

if he was hoping to end his

senior season on a happy

note with a trip to the state

finals in Charleston.

The Loyola senior

would recover in time to

pull away for a win in the

400-meter dash, taking

the sectional crown with

a time of 49.3 at the Niles

West Sectional Thursday,

May 16, in Skokie.

“I was thinking that I

might have this if I just

stride at the end, but they

kept keeping up,” Loveland

said. “And then I

heard this guy coming

up behind me, so I had to

push the hardest I’ve ever

pushed in my life, honestly.

“I came out strong, finished

strong, it was a rollercoaster

of emotions.”

Loveland will be making

his first trip downstate

after missing out on making

it out of the sectional

last season by .2.

Doing that in his senior

season isn’t something

that’s lost on Loveland.

“This one meant a lot

because I had the best time

coming in,” he said. “The

entire time people were

telling me I’m going to

state, so there were a lot

of expectations. I wanted it

really badly.”

Loveland won’t be the

lone Rambler going downstate,

however. After only

having one qualifier last

year, Loyola added two

more state qualifiers in

freshman Spencer Werner,

who took third in the 3,200

run with a time of 9:18.74,

and Kieran Thompson,

who took third in the high

jump with a high of 6-03.

Werner had arguably

the best run of the day for

the Ramblers, improving

on his nine seed time of

9:34.89.

Werner, Loveland and

Thompson will all be

looking to do well at the

state meet May 24-25 in

Charleston.

“It’s really exciting going

there as a senior,”

Loveland said. “I’m sad

I might miss graduation

but it’s a dream come true.

I’ve wanted this my entire

high school career, so I’m

really happy.”

New Trier wins 3,200-meter relay state title

Daniel L. Chamness

Freelance Reporter

The New Trier Trevians

saw gold at the end of the

track.

In the finals of the Illinois

High School Association

Class 3A State Championships,

the Trevians

dashed to victory in the

3,200-meter relay, finishing

the race in 9 minutes,

11.70 seconds.

“That was a great way to

start the meet,” said James

Klotz, a New Trier assistant

coach. “We wanted to

be close when the third athlete

(Leah Ulrich) handed

off to Marnie Sullivan, our

anchor leg. We knew if we

were close, we had a good

chance to win it.”

Part of the Trevian

coaching staff was

100 yards away when the

moment happened and

hugged each other enthusiastically.

What probably

made it more satisfying

for the competitors as well

as the coaching staff was

the victory was extremely

hard-fought.

“I just kept my head

down and tried to run

through the end,” Sullivan

said. “I did not know

how close Hoffman Estates

was. I just focused

on the finish line and concentrated

on getting there.

When I crossed the finish

line, I was a little shocked.

I am just enjoying this moment.”

How hard-fought? Hoffman

Estates was less than

six-tenths of a second behind

the Trevians in the

eight-lap race, finishing in

9:12.26.

Two Trevian seniors,

Ulrich and Sullivan, combined

talents with junior

Bridget Forbes and sophomore

Emma Braband to

earn the state championship

in the event.

The top five teams all

broke 9:20 and by 9:27, all

the placing teams had finished

the race. In the final

100 meters, Sullivan, clad

in green and white with

pink socks, emerged with

the lead. Hoffman Estates,

also uniquely attired, was

in hot pursuit. But, Sullivan

was more than capable

of holding off the hardcharging

runner-up team,

NSCDS wins sectional via shutout

Neil Milbert

Freelance Reporter

North Shore Country

Day stepped up its game in

the second half of its IHSA

Class 1A Sectional championship

soccer match

with Willows Academy at

Waukegan’s Dougdale Park

and took a resolute step toward

a second straight trip

to the state finals.

Emily Weil, Edith Edwards-Mizel

and Paige

Forester scored the goals

and goalkeeper Abby Renaud

recorded the shutout in

the 3-0 victory on Saturday,

May 18, that enabled the

Raiders to take the Sectional

title for the second straight

season after capturing it for

the first time last year.

North Shore was a 4-1

winner at Willows during

the regular season and

dominated the first half.

The Raiders took 13 shots

and several were excellent

scoring chances. Meanwhile,

Renaud had to make

six saves and only one was

difficult.

Nevertheless, coach

Lizzy Gifften was concerned,

very aware that it

was anyone’s game. “They

have a good coach (Leah

Kartsimas) and they’re

much improved (since the

prior meeting),” she said.

Giffen told her team:

“You can’t turn the ball

over and you have to play

faster.”

Weil got the message.

Taking a pass from Allie

Charnas, she outmaneuvered

defenders as she

moved across the goal

mouth from the near left

side and then lifted a high

shot just inside the right

goal post to open the scoring

with 12 seconds elapsed

in the second half.

“We got the energy up at

North Shore Country Day poses after winning its Class 1A sectional title Saturday, May 18, in Waukegan. Photo submitted

halftime and coming out I

tried to feed on that,” she

said. “I was trying to go

for the corner and get the

goal.”

Weil had another good

chance a few minutes later

but this time her shot was

stopped by goalie Kathryn

Stanfel.

The Raiders stayed in

their attacking mode and

were rewarded 12 minutes

into the half when

Edwards-Mizel’s low shot

from the right side found

the left corner of the net.

“Patience is not one

of my strong points but I

moved through traffic and

waited to shoot when the

goalie was moving out,”

Edwards-Mizel said.

After getting the assist

on Edwards-Mizel’s goal,

Forester added another insurance

goal 13 minutes

later. Caroline Segal was

credited with the assist.

Forester said: “In the second

half we came out with

a different mind-set. We

went in thinking we had to

do whatever we could to

win it.”

The victory improved

the Raiders’ record to 14-3.

Giffen believes experience

and scoring capability

are their biggest assets

as they attempt to move

on to the state championship

match and succeed

where they failed last season

against Notre Dame of

Quincy.

She has nine starters back

from that team — which

went farther than any team

in school history — and

she pointed out “we have

multiple players who have

scored 9, 10, 11 goals.”

The players are of the

opinion that they have also

have camaraderie going for

them.

“A big thing last year

was team chemistry and

this year we’ve been even

closer as a team,” Weil said.

According to Edwards-

Mizel, “we genuinely enjoy

being with each other.”

New Trier falls short in third-place match at state

Michael Wojtychiw, Sports Editor

New Trier’s girls water polo

team has become somewhat of

a regular at the water polo state

finals. For the fifth time in six

years, the Trevians advanced to

at least the state quarterfinals at

Stevenson.

However, unlike their previous

two appearances in 2016 and

2017, the Trevians would go on

to win their quarterfinal game

and guarantee themselves a state

trophy.

Unfortunately for New Trier,

that’s where the winning

stopped, as it dropped both its

semifinal game to Naperville

North and the third-place game

to Mother McAuley 11-6 on

Saturday, May 18, in Lincolnshire.

“We were able to beat Conant

and that was one of our big objectives,

to get to Saturday at

state and we achieved that objective,”

New Trier coach Matt

Wendt said. “We just fell flat.

“We got home after 11 p.m.

on Thursday and some of the

girls were up to 1:30 a.m. doing

homework. We were gassed,

there was nothing left in the

tank. It sucked the energy out of

our team, but I’m proud of the

girls, they battled.”

The game got off to a rough

LAND

OF THE

FREE

BECAUSE

OF THE

BRAVE

Lic. 055-004618

start for the Trevians, as the

Mighty Macs scored just 15 seconds

in. Emilia Zientara scored

her 11th goal of the year with

four-and-a-half minutes to play

in the period, as the Trevians

seemed to ease into the game after

a rough start.

The teams traded shot for

shot, save for save, for the majority

of the first period until

Mother McAuley scored on a

man-up and then a breakaway

on consecutive possessions in

the last 38 seconds of the period,

giving the Mighty Macs a

3-1 lead.

Taylor Jones would score to

cut the lead to 3-2 with just over

five minutes to go in the half, but

McAuley responded with a 3-1

run to extend the lead to 6-3 at

the half.

The Mighty Macs scored twice

early in the third, but the Trevians

would respond with backto-back

goals by Emma Wendt

and Leah Caywood but the deficit

would still be four, 9-5, going

into the final period.

Two more McAuley goals

and the game was all but sealed.

Kasey Umlauf would leave the

way with two goals and goalie

Maddie Beacom had 10 saves,

The game of soccer can

change in an instant. One

bounce, one flick and the

outcome of the game can

be changed in seconds.

Loyola’s girls soccer

team found that out the

hard way Friday, May

17, in its regional final

matchuo with Maine South

in WIlmette.

The Hawks got all they

needed a mere 51 seconds

into the game, when one

of their players knocked

in a looping goal to give

the visitors an early 1-0

lead. That would also be

the only goal of the game,

as they would walk away

with a 1-0 win, taking the

Loyola Regional title back

to Park Ridge.

“We talked in pregame

about managing our emotions

throughout the entire

game, we could have been

in the opposite position

and then we would have

had to manage different

emotions,” Loyola coach

Shannon Hartinger said. “I

think the girls did an outstanding

job not only managing

the emotion but then

completely dominating the

rest of the half.”

Despite giving up the

early goal, it was Loyola

that controlled play for the

majority of the first half.

The Ramblers earned

seven corners in the first

half, including five in a

three-minute stretch in

the game’s first 10 minutes.

The one thing they

couldn’t do, however, is

put the ball into the back

of the net.

“For us, we created a

lot of great opportunities,

we created a lot of corner

kicks, we put ourselves

in dangerous positions

to score,” Hartinger said.

“I thought they defended

well. Credit to their keeper

and their backs for clearing

the ball out of danger.”

The Ramblers’ best scoring

chance came midway

through the second half,

when a shot by #29 hit

the crossbar but bounced

forward instead of into

the goal. Loyola also had

a great chance with about

three-and-a-half minutes

remaining but a shot went

just wide of the goal.

It was an interesting

year for Loyola this season.

For the majority of

the year, many freshmen

and sophomores saw considerable

playing time, including

a number of whom

were constant starters for

the squad.

That combined with

All-Stater Maggie Brett

coming back from a torn

ACL slowed the Ramblers

down at the beginning of

the year. However, as Brett

returned, and the underclassmen

became adjusted

to the high school game,

you could see a different

Loyola squad than the one

who struggled early on.

“I think it’s evident that

we were able to have a

strong class of seniors,

who led us on and off the

field in everything we

did,” the coach said. “They

accepted the younger players

on the team with open

arms and recognized the

value of each player on

our team. The culture they

created with accepting the

younger players was a big

part of our success.

“We gelled well as a

team towards the latter

part of the season, but that

all goes back to the senior

leaders.”

The 2019 season was

also an interesting one for

Hartinger, who took over

as coach just three or four

months ago.

“For me, transitioning

from club soccer to high

school soccer, the biggest

difference is the amount of

games you play in a short

period of time,” she joked.

“The managing of things

evolved more throughout

the season as well.

“At the end of the day,

it’s the game and the objective

is to not let the

other team score goals, so

all along I tried to focus

on the development of our

team on the field and then

let the other stuff happen

naturally.”

Not only do the Ramblers

lose Brett, who

will play at Washington

University-St. Louis next

season, they also lose key

players in Madeline Prassas,

Kathleen Jaros, Kate

Murtagh, Claire Kelly,

Lauren Daffada, Megan

Kurtz and Madeline Phillips.

“This is obviously

a very special senior

class for Loyola soccer,”

Hartinger said. “They

have handled the past year

here at Loyola with the

utmost integrity, they’ve

handled themselves with

class, been leaders on and

off the field and I can’t say

enough about the ;legacy

they’re leaving and the

torch they’re passing on to

our younger players.

“I think that anything

we do in the future, we can

look back at this group of

seniors and will give them

full credit for everything

they’ve done.”

Key returnees include

Molly Sipe, Grace Ehlert

and Kaitlyn Kurtz, all

freshmen, as well as Meredith

Phillips, Grace Cutler

and Eleanor Jackson, to

name a few.
