La Margo had mayor investigated by firm

Report: Evidence of violations insufficient

but further investigation was warranted

Bill Jones, Editor

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

Orland Park Mayor

Keith Pekau and Interim

Village Manager Tom Dublelbeis

revealed during a

press conference held the

afternoon of May 29 that

the Jones Day bills for

an internal investigation

previously questioned at

a Village Board meeting

were related to an internal

investigation spearheaded

by former Village Manager

Joe La Margo into

the practices of Pekau, his

former company GroundsKeeper

Landscape Care

and more.

Pekau at the press conference

claimed the investigation,

which took place

in the months leading up

to the April 2 election, was

politically motivated and

that a subsequent followup

report by Interim Assistant

Village Manager

Joseph Mitchell proved the

mayor’s innocence.

The Jones Day report

itself suggests that there

was “insufficient” evidence

to support violations

on the part of Pekau

or GroundsKeeper in the

latter’s bid for an emerald

ash borer contract in 2012

— which ultimately went

to the company for $1.16

million — as well as the

former’s introduction of

the company’s new owner

to Public Works staff earlier

this year and Pekau’s

business relationship with

Horton Group in relation

to a 2018 contract awarded

to the insurance company

by the Village. But

it also notes there were

“gaps in the Village’s

own ethics and purchasing

policies,” and Jones

Day wanted to see further

investigation into Pekau’s

alleged conduct.

Mitchell’s report repeatedly

says there was no evidence

“to support any of

the allegations set forth in

the Jones Day report.”

How it happened

La Margo said he received

a complaint late

last year regarding two

vendors with which the

Village contracted and

“potential irregularities

with the bidding process

between these two vendors

and potentially another

staff person.”

“I had an ethical obligation

to look into this,” La

Margo said when reached

by phone May 29. “Whenever

there is a complaint

about anybody or about

anything, I have an obligation

to do my job and look

into it.”

La Margo said he started

a small internal investigation

into the complaint

with one of the Village’s

attorneys, James J. Roche

& Associates. That investigation,

La Margo said,

showed that the complaint

warranted “a deeper dive.”

“But they couldn’t go

any further with this,” La

Margo said of that firm.

“We didn’t bring anybody

in, and we didn’t do any

interviews or anything like

that. We just started pulling

information. What we

discovered was that there

was some potential credibility

to the claim.”

The Jones Day report

noted that following

the request for proposals

deadline in 2012 for

the EAB contract — for

which GroundsKeeper

produced the lowest rate in

the category where Public

Works expected the most

work to happen but was

outbid in other categories

— GroundsKeeper sent a

letter saying certain rates

would be lowered in the

categories in which it had

been outbid. Then, the

Village Board approved

the original numbers, at

higher rates in some cases,

with the report finding no

conclusive explanation for

that action.

The Jones Day report

also reviewed an allegation

that because Pekau

had a business relationship

with Horton Group since

2003, he had a financial interest

in a contract awarded

to Horton in 2018. But

records show Pekau abstained

from the vote, and

the Village had awarded

Horton similar work in

years prior.

The Jones Day report

also looked into Pe-

From Page 3

kau introducing the new

owner of GroundsKeeper

to employees of the Public

Works department in

2019. According to the

Village’s follow-up, Pekau

disclosed that he was renting

property to owner of

GroundsKeeper, and thus

maintained a financial interest

despite the sale of

the business in February.

But the report said introductions

of new owners

seeking Village business is

not uncommon, and Pekau

did not steer the Village toward

hiring the company.

“The people of Orland

Park should be appalled,”

Pekau said of La Margo

leading the Jones Day

investigation, later adding,

“We have an obvious

abuse of power that wasted

$46,000 of taxpayer

money on a politically

motivated fishing expedition

against a duly elected

mayor.”

La Margo said that he

could not comment on

the exact nature of the invoices

or what was billed,

because he did not have

those items on-hand during

the time of the call.

“But I will tell you that

through the course of this,

things had started to rise to

the surface, and I wanted

to be as complete as possible,”

he said.

La Margo added, “No

matter who it is or who it

involves, if I get a complaint

... I have an obligation

to look into that.

And I did. I followed the

protocols. ... I got an independent

law firm that

specializes in this. … I did

my due diligence and what

I was supposed to do. I’d

do it again. I would not

change a thing.”

But Pekau said La Margo

overstepped his bounds.

“Joe La Margo is not an

elected official,” he said.

“The elected officials do

not answer to an appointed

Village manger. The Village

manager does not

have the authority to investigate

elected officials.”

Pekau said part of the

problem is that the Village

does not have good guidelines

on handling complaints

such as these, but

he thinks La Margo only

should have carried out

such an investigation if the

board so directed him.

“He does not take it

upon himself,” Pekau said.

La Margo said he gave

the six trustees information

about the investigation

without going into a

lot of detail. He said all of

the responses were similar:

go to the attorneys and do

what you need to do in order

to ensure that whatever

was broken gets fixed.

“I told him to get the

lawyers involved,” Trustee

James Dodge confirmed

regarding his first response

to learning about the complaint

that had been mentioned

to La Margo. “I

think that was the tail end

of last year, and it was the

last that I had heard of it

until [May 20].”

Political or pragmatic?

Pekau called the investigation

a “purely political

attack,” citing the timeline

in relation to the election

and one of the complaints

dating back as far as 2012.

He further chastised La

Margo for not affording

him due process in the investigation.

The Jones Day team did

not interview Pekau during

the process, and in one

email La Margo discouraged

them from doing so

— or talking to Grounds-

Keeper — for “cost-containment”

concerns.

“Anyone with reasonable

judgement would

have recognized in minutes

that these allegations

were unfounded, but they

were investigated because

this was political,” Pekau

said.

Pekau is a common

thread among several

items La Margo asked

Jones Day to investigate.

And an email unveiled

from La Margo to Jones

Day mentioned he heard

Pekau asked for a fundraising

list from a former

politician, another topic

brought up during election

season.

But La Margo said this

report “wasn’t out to get

anyone.” It was more to

make sure the Village was

“doing things appropriately.”

He said he thinks the

investigation was handled

fairly and responsibly, and

as a result of it a number of

changes were made to fix

some of the gaps.

“To tell you the truth,

in the long run, we probably

saved the Village a

lot more than we actually

spent on this investigation,”

La Margo said.

Pekau said information

similar to that found in the

investigation was used by

at least two of his political

opponents in the months

leading up to the election.

But he also admitted following

the press conference

that nothing in the

uncovered emails drew

a direct line between La

Margo’s investigation and

any political materials or

politicians. Pekau said

anything else regarding the

dissemination of information

from the investigation

in relation to the election

would be speculation on

his part.

The money spent on

the investigation itself,

though, could prove problematic

for La Margo,

who is capped at spending

$20,000 by the Village

without further approval

from the Village Board.

La Margo said he wanted

the costs to stay within

reason, and emails released

by Pekau and Dubelbeis

suggest La Margo tried

but was not able to place

a cap on the costs. He

also shared concerns with

Jones Day about trying to

“keep costs down.”

“I cannot go above my

authorized spending level

without prior board approval,”

La Margo wrote

in one email, and Jones

Day reportedly agreed

to notify him when costs

passed $15,000.

La Margo by phone said

he thought he was still

within the State statute

of his spending authority,

but the Village caps

him at $20,000. Invoices

from February, March and

April from Jones Day total

$47,496.63, all billed

under “internal investigation,”

despite addressing

multiple allegations.

One monthly bill, which

exceeded $34,000 for

April, includes more than

$22,000 for a particular

associate as a single line

item.

Pekau said it all falls under

one professional services

contract and, in his

interpretation of the code,

is still a problem.

After the preliminary

investigation, Jones Day

provided an estimate that

to continue would have

cost between $87,705 and

$114,210, and the investigation

did not proceed

with the law firm.

Discovering the details

Dubelbeis said he became

aware of the Jones

Day investigation on May

7. The preliminary report

requested further action,

and Dubelbeis said he

asked Mitchell to complete

the report, which was

finalized May 26.

Dubelbeis said Mitchell’s

report was not discussed

with La Margo before

it was made public.

“We have not been in

contact with Joe La Margo,”

Dubelbeis said. “We

maintained it as an internal

investigation.”

No trustees at the May

20 meeting publicly acknowledged

they knew

the details of the investigation.

Dubelbeis noted that

none of the emails uncovered

include either copies

or blind copies of any

elected officials, but there

were several staffers with

whom La Margo shared at

least cursory information

or who became involved

through investigatory interviews.

Pekau said Klein, Thorpe

and Jenkins, the Village’s

attorney, reviewed

the engagement letter

but was not otherwise involved

in the investigative

process.

Dubelbeis said at the

May 20 executive session

of the Village Board he

told members there was

an investigation happening

and provided some details.

Reached by phone May

29, Dodge said he first saw

the draft report from Jones

Day during that executive

session and asked for time

to review that report in detail.

He said he also asked

for Mitchell’s report, as

well as a report from the

attorneys about the potential

legal implications of

discussing the Jones Day

investigation in public.

“I didn’t get any of that

before this press conference,”

Dodge said of Pekau’s

press conference.

Dodge said he wishes

the Village had taken more

time to go through all of

the documents before releasing

them.

“This is a pretty serious

matter, and I still don’t

have an answer back from

Klein, Thorpe and Jenkins

about the implications of

breaking client-attorney

privilege with something

this sensitive for something

that was not yet finished.

... This could expose

the Village for liability,

because this is now essentially

an employment

matter for a number of our

employees, including Joe

La Margo.”

Dubelbeis said there was

a “consensus” among the

board to release the information,

and as the client in

this interaction the Village

had the right to release the

information. He added he

did not think anything being

released could cause

future problems for the

Village.

“I guess there’s always

that potential,” he acknowledged.

Pekau added the Village’s

attorneys reviewed

his statement before the

press conference.

“It’s complete, and the

people deserve to know,”

he said of the release.

“Sunlight is the best disinfectant.”

What’s next?

Pekau in his speech

called upon the Ad Hoc

Ethics Committee to further

develop the Village’s

ethics ordinance to outline

procedures and penalties

for complaints such

as those addressed in the

Jones Day report. He also

called upon trustees to ensure

“that one unelected

individual is never given

this level of power and influence

over Village operations

ever again.”

But asked several times,

Pekau would not comment

on what course of action

he saw as necessary before

further discussion with the

Village Board, which was

to meet after The Orland

Park Prairie’s print deadline

Monday, June 3.

As per the outstanding

bills, Dubelbeis said Jones

Day is a reputable firm that

was asked to do a service

and performed that service.

“My recommendation

is that those invoices will

be paid,” Dubelbeis said.

“They did the work; they

deserve to be paid.”

A FOIA request by The

Prairie seeking all communication

from several

Village employees and

elected officials related to

the Jones Day investigation

was extended by the

Village until June 6.

Disclosure: The Prairie’s parent

company, 22nd Century

Media, works with The Horton

Group for the former’s

employee insurance plans.

Orland Park Memorial Day Ceremony

honors veterans’ service, sacrifice

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

The Orland Park community

came together to

honor those who lost their

lives while serving in the

United States military during

the annual Memorial

Day Ceremony, presented

by the Village’s Veterans’

Commission, as well as

Orland-Palos Reber-Tesmond

VFW Post 2604,

American Legion Post 111

and other groups.

Along with paying tribute

to the brave men and

women who made the

ultimate sacrifice in service,

the May 27 event saluted

local veterans whose

names have been added to

the Village Veterans Memorial,

Ara Pace - Place of

Peace.

Originally scheduled to

be held outdoors at the memorial,

the ceremony was

moved inside the Civic

Center to avoid the forecasted

inclement weather.

Veterans’ Commission

Chairman Darryl Wertheim

led the ceremony,

taking care to keep fallen

veterans as the focus of the

conversation.

“Memorial Day is for

the deceased veterans who

were killed in action, and

Veterans Day is for all

veterans,” he explained.

“I think sometimes there

is a little bit of confusion

there, so we try to honor

those who lost their lives

today. We want to remember

their ultimate sacrifice

so we can have our freedom

here today.

“This is a Memorial Day

Ceremony to honor all the

men and women who were

killed in the line of duty

through all the years —

from World War I, World

War II, Korea and Vietnam

to Afghanistan and Iraq —

and we also have 24 veter-

Orland Park Village Board

Officials rescind, reapprove roadwork additions after facing potential State violation

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

The Village of Orland

Park Board of Trustees

acted quickly Thursday,

May 30, to reverse a decision

regarding its 2019

Neighborhood Road Improvement

Program that

could have put the Village

in violation of State statutes.

At a short special meeting,

the board members

voted 6-0 to rescind the

approval of a proposal

originally passed on May

6 regarding additional

roadwork for the 2019

road program. The action

called for $3.5 million in

improvements, to be performed

by Austin Tyler

Construction Inc., of Elwood.

Then, in a subsequent

move, the board members

voted 4-2 to approve

waiving the bid process

and authorizing a new

proposal for Phase 2 of

the 2019 Neighborhood

Road Improvement Project

Program in an amount

of $3.5 million to be performed

by Austin Tyler

Construction.

Trustees James Dodge

and Kathleen Fenton cast

the dissenting ballots.

Trustee Dan Calandriello

was absent.

No comments were

made from the public, and

none of the board members

spoke on either motion

during open discussion.

How it happened

The reason the Village

Board members were

forced to rescind the original

approval of the additional

work was because

the way the project was

approved would have violated

a State law regarding

change orders.

In a May 23 email from

Village Attorney E. Kenneth

Friker to Village staff

and Trustee James Dodge

— obtained by The Orland

Park Prairie — Friker

stated that he needed

to “amend” his opinion

on the road improvement

project change order that

was approved on May 6

by the Village Board.

“An Illinois statute (50

IL CS 525/5) requires bidding

(in the same manner

as the original contract

was bid) of a change order

when the amount of the

change order is 50 percent

or more of the original

contract price,” Friker’s

email read. “The statute

pre-empts home rule.

Thus, any Austin Tyler

change order cannot equal

50 perent or more of the

original contract prices of

[$1.92 million] without

rebidding. I apologize for

this necessary amendment

to my opinion.”

The change order that

was approved as a result

of the May 6 board action

amounted to roughly 200

percent over the original

amount.

The Prairie reached out

to Mayor Keith Pekau by

phone on May 28 — two

days prior to the special

meeting — to find out how

the mistake was made regarding

the way the item

was passed, as well as the

background on when and

why the Village decided

to add additional streets

to its road improvement

program, well past the

approval of the project as

part of the budget for the

fiscal year.

Pekau said the additional

roads were discussed

during the budget process

but that because of the

other revenue- and expense-related

issues, trying

to get a consensus on

roads did not make sense

at the time.

But after the April election,

Pekau said he began

taking the temperature of

the Village Board to see if

more work could be added.

He said Public Works

Director John Ingram

worked with Finance Director

Annmarie Mampe

and the chairman of the

Public Works Committee,

Fenton, to come up with

a plan to get more roads

done.

Pekau said he did not

pressure Ingram or anyone

else to move along

the process of adding extra

roads to the program.

“After going through

the campaign and [hearing]

the new trustees saying

that the roads were

horrible and we needed to

do something, I reached

out to all of the trustees to

see if they had an appetite

for doing [more] roads,”

Pekau said. “My direction

to John Ingram was …

that we’d like to do more

roads this year.”

Pekau said he told Ingram

that the desire was

there to do as many roads

as staff felt it could handle.

He also said he asked Ingram

for his expertise in

coming up with the best

way to get the project

done.

“He came to me and

said that the best way forward

with this is to expand

the project [with Austin

Tyler], because we’ve got

good unit pricing that is

going to be higher if we

bid it out now, because of

the time of the year,” Pekau

said. “He talked to the

contractor, and they had

enough room to expand

the project right now. But

if we wait, they’ll start

to get other projects and

they won’t be able to do

as much.”

Pekau said the next step

was to determine how the

Village would pay for the

extra roadwork. He said

they went to Mampe and

asked her for her opinion.

“In our budget meetings

… we’ve said over the last

two years that fixing roads

and borrowing for that at

our rate saves us money

in the long run,” Pekau

said. “That’s a good use

of debt.”

Pekau said it was the

opinion of Mampe that the

Village should fund the

extra roads through the

Village’s line of credit at

around 2 percent interest.

“And we had plenty in

our line of credit to do it,”

Pekau said.

Since there were no

committee meetings in

May, Pekau said the item

was brought directly to

the Village Board at the

regular meeting. But he

said he thinks it was discussed

in at least three

staff meetings prior to

the May 6 Village Board

meeting.

“No one had any issues

going forward [with it],

and they understood why

we were doing it and understood

that it was good

public policy and good for

the Village,” Pekau said.

After the May 6 meeting,

questions were raised

about the legality of how

the extra roads were added.

“There is a clause in the

contract, as I’m understanding,

that references

any changes being done

by change order — which

is not in every contract,”

Pekau said. “But it was

in this one. There is a

State statute that [change

orders] can’t exceed 50

percent. Therefore, how

we passed it was a mistake.

What we did was

not wrong; it was the right

thing to do for the Village.

But there was a technical

mistake that we’re going

to correct.”

Luckily for the Village,

the approved contract with

Austin Tyler Construction

via change order had not

yet been signed.

“No one caught it until

after the fact,” Pekau said.

“The attorneys didn’t

catch it in any of the

staff meetings, and [they]

didn’t catch it that night.

They caught it after the

fact, before we executed

the contract.”

Pekau said an opinion

from attorney led to the

corrective measures at the

special meeting, and the

Village is already having

internal discussions about

how to ensure something

like this does not happen

again.

“Obviously, we need to

tighten up that process,”

Pekau said.

Dodge — who was

reached by phone on May

24 — cited process as the

reason he did not support

the project on May 6 and

again at the May 30 meeting.

“I would have been

more than happy to support

an expansion in our

neighborhood road program

for this year, but I

would have raised concerns

about doing 100

percent debt financing to

do it,” Dodge said. “That

has long-range implications

on the budget. I

would have wanted staff

to have gone out and did

it properly per the bids.

Those are my objections.”

Dodge said he thinks

that if the Village went to

the market with a project

calling for $5 million in

road improvements, there

may have been more bids

received, possibly at better

pricing.

Fenton said she voted

against the Phase 2 improvement

plan because

of the process by which

the road expansion was

handled and she questioned

if the work can actually

be completed this

year. Fenton said she is for

improving as many roads

as possible but thinks the

expanded program should

go through the budget

process and have an increased

financial commitment

in fiscal year 2020.

‘Baseless’ accusations?

The additional project

areas for the 2019 program

are: Brentwood

North, Arbor Pointe

(including Grandview

Drive), the Golfview Condos

area (which includes

Foxbend Court, Sunset

Ridge Court, Deerfield

Court and Brassie Court),

the Persimmons and Ashford

Court, Seton Place,

and Teebrook.

In addition to the complications

regarding the

change order, Pekau also

fielded accusations from

some claiming that the extra

roads were being done

as political favors for

trustees and other allies.

“We have a long-range

plan for our streets,” Pekau

said. “They look at all

the streets and rate them.”

Pekau used Persimmons

as an example, as

those were two of the next

roads listed as being most

in need of repairs. A third

Persimmons street was

farther down on the list,

but that road was sandwiched

between the other

two roads, so it made

sense to include the road

in the additional work, he

said.

Pekau called the allegations

“completely baseless.”

Man allegedly robbed Disc Replay

Bill Jones, Editor

A man who allegedly

pointed a pellet gun at an

employee May 27 when

he robbed the Orland Park

Disc Replay store was

caught later the same day.

Lance R. Payne, 25, of

21202 Old N. Church Road

in Frankfort, was charged

with aggravated robbery, a

Class 1 felony, according to

a press release issued May

28 by the Orland Park Police

Department.

Police were called

around 10 a.m. May 27 to

the store, 15015 LaGrange

Road. They arrived to

learn a man, later identified

as Payne, entered the

store and requested to see

a cellphone, according to

the report. An employee

retrieved it from a locked

case, and Payne took it

and began to run out of the

From May 28

Payne

store, police said.

As Payne left the store,

he allegedly pulled out

what appeared to be a

black handgun from his

waistband, pointed it at the

employee and fled southbound

in a vehicle on La-

Grange Road.

No one reported injuries

during the incident.

Shortly after 11 a.m., a

business located in Matteson

notified Disc Replay

that a person fitting the

description of the offender

was inside of a business

there, attempting to sell

the stolen phone, police

said. Matteson police reportedly

were notified, responded

and took Payne

into custody.

A replica firearm identified

as a pellet gun was

recovered from Payne,

police said. His vehicle,

a 2018 Toyota, reportedly

was located and seized.

Payne was identified by

the Orland Park victim

during a formal lineup,

according to the release.

He was transferred to the

Orland Park Police Station

for processing.

Judge Donald Havis issued

a $10,000 recognizance

bond to Payne on

May 28 during a hearing

at the Cook County Courthouse

for the Fifth Municipal

District in Bridgeview.

His next court date is June

24.

Hemp Gummies Shown

To Relieve Discomfort

Hemp Gummies offer users fast acting relief from joint and muscle discomfort

that’s absolutely delicious; now available in the U.S. without aprescription

Chris Laufstein

Associated Health Press

BOSTON —For millions battling daily discomfort, this news couldn’t

be moreexciting.

Anew relief extract found in hemp is available across the nation and

can be purchased without aprescription.

And the best part, it comes to users inthe form of atasty gummy

bear.

So youcan saygoodbye to pills,needles,and creams!

Hemp Gummies,contains pureconcentrated doses of hemp extract,

which can help relieve joint discomfort along with general muscle aches

and soreness.

It also calms,relaxes,and eases tension all overthe body.

Exciting new scientific research shows that hemp extract contains

special relief molecules called cannabinoids which bind to receptor cites

in the brain and body. When taken orally, hemp extract activates these

receptors, and soothing comfort begins to takeform.

Available Across the Nation

Recent developments,likethe US Farm Bill,allow Hemp Gummies

to be sold in the U.S. without aprescription. And since it can’t get you

high it’sflying off the shelves.

“Most people have no idea that pure hemp extract, like Hemp

Gummies, can be purchased. And that’s because it contains no THC,”

explains Dr. Joe Wezensky, who sits on the scientific board atMedici

Quest.

“Instead, it’s bursting with special relief compounds called

cannabinoids. These cannabinoids target special receptor cites all over

the body but aremost prominent in the brain.”

“This system of cannabinoids and the receptorsthat theybind to are

called the Endocannabinoid System and science is just now unlocking

its amazing medical potential”

“In fact, the initial research has been so impressivethat hemp extract

is nowpatented by the US Government (patent #6,630,507).”

“It’s also being used by athletes in the NFL, MMA among other

physically demanding sports as asafe alternative.”

Clearing Up the Confusion Around Hemp

One of the biggest mistakes people make when talking about hemp

extract is mixing it up with marijuana.

Although the twofall under the same plant category,cannabis sativa,

theyhave completely different effects on the body.

Remarkably, hemp extract is available in the U.S. and can’t get you

high (ever!). That’s because there isnoTHC in it, the chemical that

makes youfeel “buzzed”.

“Although you can’t get high from Hemp Gummies, you can start

feeling the effectiverelief,” explains Wezensky.

“Most people have very low cannabinoid levels, which is why they

constantly ache. Hemp Gummies boosts cannabinoid levels extremely

fast, helping relieve lingering joint discomfort ...muscle tension...and

general soreness. Italso eases stress and elicits amazing relaxation

without feeling impaired. And what most people really love is they’re

delicious and so easytotakeonthe go.

HowitWorks

Clinical studies show that cannabinoids and the receptors that they

bind to arefound all overyour body.

However, they are most concentrated in your brain. That’s why it

has such aprofound impact on how you feel, especially your level of

comfort.

These cannabinoids and their receptorswork like“lock and key”and

bind to each other triggering important biological processes.

Hemp Extract, like Hemp Gummies,may

help users with...

•Aching joints

•Soremuscles

•Cramping

•Leg and foot discomfort

•Restlessness

•Stress

•Sleep problems

Keeps Your Body Balanced...

The incredible impact cannabinoids have on your health is directly

related to the primary goal of your Endocannabinoid System, which

is to maintain abalance in the body, aphysiological state known as

homeostasis.

Research shows that maintaining this balance is akey to vitality and

healthybodily function.

The cannabinoids found in Hemp Gummies, hemp extract, replenish

your levels quickly,easing discomfort overthe entirebody.

Plus, by keeping your body in balance (homeostasis), Hemp

Gummies also helps to relieve stress and tension...improve sleep... and

evenpromote relaxation and calmness.

Not YetSold in Stores

Hemp extract that is derived from industrial hemp, like Hemp

Gummies, is available nationwide. However, several major

AGUMMY ADAY TO KEEP ALL YOUR ACHES AWAY: Hemp Gummies a5

milligram dose of Hemp Extract that works all day to keep you comfortable.

pharmaceutical companies are currently testing hemp extract in

clinical settings, which means it may require aprescription in the

future. It’s advised to get Hemp Gummies while you can.

Taking All the Risk Off Consumers

Alarge percentage of men and women using Hemp Gummies

experience truly amazing results. That’s why it’s now being sold

with aguarantee that goes way beyond the industry standard.

“We can only make this guarantee because we are 100%

certain our customers will be satisfied,” says Wezensky. We

want to take full risk off consumers. So in addition to offering

substantial discounts for first time customers, we also makethem

ahuge promise that ensures they don’t have to risk acent.”

Here’s how it works: Take Hemp Gummies exactly as directed

Scar

Sarah Larson

Orland Park resident

I would like to introduce you to Scar.

Our son found Scar when the cat

was just 6 months old. It was cold

out with snow on the ground, and he

was homeless and malnourished, living on the streets. We took him in and

gave him the care he needed. One year later, he is a very happy and healthy

cat. He loves to get into trouble by eating any food in sight, including computer

chords and firewood. In the morning, he likes to talk to us. I think he says

‘Hello.’ My husband says it’s just ‘Meow.’ But as a good husband, he agrees

that I’m right. Scar loves to sit in front of the fireplace and watch his mom cook

(obviously plotting his evil plans, but we love him just the same).

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

$100K to be spent on

downtown improvements

The Mokena Village Board

approved at its May 28 meeting

more than $100,000 worth of

streetscape improvements to the

downtown district.

Bernardin Landscaping, of

Mokena, was awarded the contract

in the amount of $102,335

after a 3-1 vote.

Trustee Joseph Budzyn cast

the lone dissenting vote.

“This is a maintenance project

that includes excavation,

disposal, preparation of the

base, installation of brick pavers

and restoration of the affected

areas,” Public Works Director

Lou Tiberi said.

Before the rest of the board

commented, Mayor Frank

Fleischer asked Trustees George

Metanias and Jillian Hersted to

give their thoughts on the project,

as they were previously

asked to take the lead on working

with staff to put together the

project details.

“I think this enhancement of

our downtown is past due not

only for the looks but [also] for

safety,” Metanias said. “[Trustee

Hersted] and I, and staff, met

there a few times. We tried to

figure out what was best and

what would look good and what

would be safe. We came up with

a plan, and staff put it all together.

We put it out for bid, and I

think this will not only enhance

our downtown to make it look

nice and clean but I think it will

be maintenance-free. But it will

be safe, also, for people walking

around. There was a lot of work

put into it.”

FROM THE FRANKFORT STATION

Relay for Life to raise more

funds for American Cancer

Society

Area residents will continue

the American Cancer Society’s

tradition of supporting cancer

research and honoring cancer

survivors this week at the Relay

for Life of Greater Will County.

The annual event is scheduled

from 3-11 p.m. Saturday, June

8, at the Lincoln-Way North

building, 19900 S. Harlem Ave.

in Frankfort.

For Event Chairperson

DeAnn Anzaldi, a breast cancer

survivor, seeing all of the cancer

survivors wear the event’s distinctive

purple shirts gives her

hope.

“The more purple shirts, that

means that more people are

beating the disease,” she said.

“That’s why I feel special about

it. I know the American Cancer

Society does a lot of great

things, but for me, it’s just a

symbol. If there’s 100 purple

shirts out there, it gives me inspiration

that it can be beat.”

This year, 15 teams are participating

in the Relay for Life,

with an average of 10 people per

team. Anzaldi expects 200-300

attendees, including walkers,

vendors, survivors and members

of the event committee.

Anzaldi said she hopes this

year’s relay raises approximately

$15,000.

“It’s for research,” she said.

“It’s for any of the programs

that the American Cancer Society

provides. ... They have

programs for cancer survivors

going through treatment.”

Tinley girl’s lemonade stand

raises big bucks for good causes

Most children start a lemonade

stand to buy a toy or a bike.

Kiera Fitzmaurice started hers

to give away the proceeds.

With her sixth annual charity

event approaching, the 9-yearold

from Tinley Park has raised

more than $5,500 to date for a

variety of causes and is aiming

to make an even bigger impact.

“I wanted to give something

away, but I couldn’t think of

what,” she said, telling the story

of how she came up with the

idea. “I realized I really like

lemonade, and a lot of people

like drinking it on hot days. So,

I realized I could sell lemonade

and give the money away.”

The stand — which will be

set up Saturday, June 15, in the

Fitzmaurice driveway at 16906

Sandy Lane — has benefitted

a different organization every

year. This year’s recipient is

RE;ACT 4 Ryan, a nonprofit

dedicated to equipping first responders

with mental health

counseling and training.

In addition to the lemonade

— made from the same recipe

each year and costing just 50

cents a glass — the event has

grown to include fire trucks, engines

and ambulances from the

Tinley Park Fire Department, as

well as a collection of other custom

vehicles. Grilled meats and

other barbecue foods are part of

the mix, too.

The stand will be open from

around 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Doughnuts and beer making

return to Arrowhead Ales for

Father’s Day

Not too long ago, Arrowhead

Ales Brewing Company in New

Lenox teamed up with Home

Cut Donuts in Joliet to create a

beer. All 700 22-ounce bottles

of that beer sold in one hour.

So, the two entities are coming

together again to make

twice the amount of beer this

time around, adding a blueberry

variant set to come out on Father’s

Day, Sunday, June 16.

“It’s going to be a good day,”

said Mike Bacon, owner and

head brewer of Arrowhead.

“We’re offering a special menu

with traditional barbecue items

paired with our new beer releases.

It’s a great way to spend

Father’s Day — barbecue, beer,

doughnuts.”

The beer’s release was originally

slated for the Saturday of

Father’s Day weekend, but now

being on Father’s Day it gives

people something unique to do

on that day.

“[We said] let’s gear it toward

Father’s Day and give people

something else fun to do,” Bacon

said. “It’s something that

nobody else is doing around

here.”

Arrowhead Ales opens at 11

a.m. on June 16 and is located

at 2101 Calistoga Drive in New

Lenox.

Cruise nights ride back into Big

R parking lot for 2019 season

There is nothing quite like

spending a day in the sun, listening

to oldies and looking

underneath the hood of classic

cars.

After getting rained out with

its first attempt at its season

opener, the Lemont Classic Car

Club held its first weekly cruise

night of the 2019 season on May

26 in the Big R parking lot. The

parking lot was filled with cars

of all makes and models, from

vintage to modern. And with

every car was a story its driver

was excited to tell.

Since the club’s founding as

a nonprofit in 2001, the Lemont

Classic Car Club has used its

classic cars to raise money for

local charities. By using funds

raised from weekly 50/50 raffles

at cruise nights, as well as entry

fees to the annual car show,

the group has been able to assist

charities in the community

such as One Step at a Time, a

camp for children with cancer;

Shady Oaks, a camp for people

with disabilities; and the TLC

Animal Shelter.

For club secretary Sharen

Moscato, of Homer Glen, classic

cars and charity go together.

“If you can’t do something

nice with one of your classic

cars, why have it?” Moscato

asked. “You have to do good,

and you have to give back.

That’s what we’re here for.”

The car club will gather in the

Big R lot from 4-7 p.m. every

Sunday through September.

Lockport children’s theater

group stages second musical

production

Bragi’s Players Children’s

Theatre is bringing some youth

and children’s stories to Taft

School’s 80-year-old theater

this weekend with its second

musical production.

“Seussical Jr.,” a musical

by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen

Flaherty, based on the stories

of Dr. Seuss, is to be performed

by Bragi’s Players at

7 p.m. on June 6, 7 and 8, and at

3 p.m. on June 9 at Taft School,

1605 S. Washington St. in Lockport.

Patty Colella, the producer

and director of the Bragi’s Players,

said after the fun and success

they had with putting on

their first musical production of

“Grease” last year, they decided

to come back with another this

year. She said although “Seussical

Jr.” is based on familiar

children’s book characters, it is

a Broadway production and is

meant for audience members of

all ages to enjoy.

Colella said the musical captures

the children’s excitement

and love for theater, and they

are all “very excited” for the

premiere.

Bragi’s Players is a nonprofit

sponsored by the Taft Foundation.

Children ages 5-14 from

school districts 33C, 90, 91 and

92 (and more), take part in the

theater, with approximately 39

total cast members.

Colella and Co-Director La-

Donna Lopez both said it is

important to them to keep the

theater going for children who

wish to be a part of it.

Five reasons you

should spend your

Thursday nights

with us

After we saw a record

attendance at

our Lady - A Women’s

Expo event in 2018 of

more than 1,500 attendees,

we knew we could do

female-focused events

well. Last August, we held

our first Ladies Night Out

event at Georgios, and we

were blown away by what

we had thought would be

a “small” event of maybe

200-300 attendees, with 50

vendors.

Instead, we wound up

with 70-plus vendors and

more than 800 attendees

throughout the night.

We knew then that we

would continue this event,

but this year we have

turned it into a series of

four Ladies Night Out

events. We have a lot of

exciting elements with

each event.

you’ve taken time for you?

Bring a friend, or come

alone and make some new

Silent Witness display brings education to Orland Park

Mary Compton

Freelance Reporter

According to a 2010

report by the Centers for

Disease Control and Prevention,

nearly 20 people

per minute in the United

States are physically

abused by an intimate

partner.

Because of those numbers,

Paul Slade, chairman

and CEO at Orland

Park Bank & Trust, wanted

to show the impact of

domestic violence to bank

customers. Slade’s idea

was to have the Crisis

Center for South Suburbia’s

traveling Silent Witness

display in five bank

locations throughout May

and early June.

“For us, bringing the

Crisis Center for South

Suburbia traveling Silent

Witness display was

simple,” Slade said. “It’s

the right thing to do.

The communities that

we serve have been very

good to us over the years.

So, we have an obligation

to help where we can. We

take that very seriously.”

The Silent Witness display

features cutouts of

victims who were killed

in domestic violence incidents.

On each cutout

are stories about how they

lost their lives to domestic

violence.

“We interact with thousands

of people in the

community every day,”

Slade said. “We want to

help raise awareness. ...

We wanted to show this is

an issue in our community.

This is a call to action.

If we engage a few, we’ve

made a difference, and

that’s why we’re here.”

Andrea Ramirez-Justin,

vice president of government

banking and community

outreach at the

affiliated Old Plank Trail

Community Bank in Mokena,

shared her story.

“Domestic violence

comes in all forms,” she

said. “It does not have a

race. It does not have a

color. It doesn’t have an

individual origin. You

could be standing next to

a person who has been a

victim of domestic violence

and never know it.

“It happens to people

you may not think it happened

to. I’m one of those

people. This happened to

me many, many years ago.

I will tell you it was the

Crisis Center for South

Suburbia that helped me

get through that time.

“Back then … it was

not to be spoken of. It

was kept quiet. I never

even told my parents. …

It wasn’t until I went to

the hospital that it became

an ‘ah-ha’ moment. I

thought, ‘This isn’t right,

and it needed to stop.’”

It was because of this

experience that she joined

Slade in bringing the Silent

Witness exhibit to

five banks.

“I think it’s an important

piece that you can survive

from domestic violence,”

Ramirez-Justin said. “It’s

important to have awareness

because there are

men and women who are

subjected to domestic violence

[who] keep it quiet.

They seem to think it’s

their own problem. They

seem to think that they did

something wrong to be involved

in a violent situation.

Domestic violence is

not just the brutal hits; it’s

mental abuse. It can happen

to anyone.”

Crisis Center for South

Suburbia Board Member

Deborah Fahey said her

dedication to help serve

domestic violence victims

is key.

“The Crisis Center for

South Suburbia’s traveling

Silent Witness Display

was at four Old Plank

Trail Community Bank

locations already,” Fahey

said. “We like to bring the

display out to the community

and to events. For

information on domestic

violence to get out to

the public is extremely

important. Domestic violence

is everywhere.

“This exhibit touches

so many people in different

ways. It’s hard to explain.”

All services through

the Crisis Center for

South Suburbia are free

to those individuals who

need help. Clients are assisted

through the 24-hour

emergency shelter; the

Transitional Housing Program;

a 24-hour hotline;

the counseling program;

court advocacy; Live Safe

Patient Advocacy; Law

Enforcement And Victim

Outreach program,

which partners with 19

local police departments;

education and prevention

programs; and the Partner

Abuse Intervention Program.

According to Jay Capron,

marketing director

for Crisis Center for

South Suburbia, there are

misconceptions regarding

domestic violence. Domestic

violence impacts

people of all cultural

backgrounds and income

levels; leaving an abusive

situation can be difficult;

and there are many forms

of abuse, including physical,

psychological, emotional,

verbal, economical

and sexual, he said.

Businesses can request

the Crisis Center for

South Suburbia traveling

Silent Witness Display. If

you or someone you know

is going through domestic

violence, call (708) 429-

7233 or visit crisisctr.org.

The Dish

Summer of smokin’ hot BBQ, bands at Tribes Alehouse

T.J. Kremer III

Contributing Editor

Not much goes better

with some good old barbecue

than a cold brew

to wash it down. And,

throughout the summer,

both will be featured at

Tribes Alehouse in Tinley

Park.

Mitch Garcia, head chef

at Tribes, will put together

a special barbecue menu

for events planned for June

16, July 7, July 28, Aug. 11

and Sept. 1.

Garcia said barbecue

brisket and wings will be

regulars, but other items

will rotate through the

menus.

“I put together a menu,

a diverse menu,” Garcia

said. “We’re doing smoked

prime rib this year. ...

We’re pretty excited about

using some of those aged

barrels.”

For the June 16 event,

Tribes is partnering with

Founders Brewing Co. to

make special use of a barrel

from the brewing company’s

Canadian Breakfast

Stout.

“It’s the barrel that they

use to age the beer in,”

said Kevin McCarthy,

general manager. “We’re

going to bust it up, throw

it in the smoker, and we’re

going to smoke some

prime rib and a lot of cool

stuff.”

Diversity is the name of

the game for Garcia, who

has spent time in restaurants

across the country in

his more than 35 years in

the industry. And that diversity

is well represented

in Tribes’ menu.

There’s the Bourbon

Street shrimp with dirty

rice ($12); the Asian

The Dish

At Parmesans, classic dishes are made with classical techniques

Freshness and the

cooking style set

Parmesans Station

apart

Nuria Mathog

Contributing Editor

Frankfort resident Michael

Papandrea believes

food is best when it goes

from the garden to the

plate.

That is part of the philosophy

behind his Tinley

Park restaurant, Parmesans

Station, which opened in

2013. It is the second restaurant

in the Parmesans

franchise, which also includes

Frankfort’s Parmesans

Wood Stone Pizza.

When Papandrea and his

wife, Mary Ann, developed

the concept for Parmesans,

they knew what they wanted

the food to taste like.

“I wanted a bit of the garden

in it, and I wanted it to

feel very, very fresh,” Papandrea

said. “I knew that

things like using my garlic

rolls to make the breading

for chicken Parmesan was

going to be very unique.

The word ‘Parmesan,’ or

‘a la Parmigiana,’ is to

bread and serve with sauce

and cheese, and bake, and

I knew there was going to

be a lot of that on the menu.

So, it just seemed like it

would fit.”

Papandrea’s journey

through the culinary world

began with his parents,

who were both Italian and

taught him the value of

fresh-grown ingredients.

“They both were very

frugal and very much

working from the garden

most of the days,” he said.

“Even through the winter,

they would can and package

and do all that stuff to

keep things going through

the winter. For the amounts

that they planted, they

would always have extra.”

Papandrea was one of

the first students to attend

the New England Culinary

Institute in Montpelier,

Vermont. After graduating,

he served as the poissonniere,

or fish chef, at La

Caravelle, a restaurant in

New York City specializing

in French cuisine.

Later, Papandrea spent

time teaching French classical

cooking at his alma

mater, traveling through Europe,

opening a restaurant in

The Hamptons and operating

a wedding catering service

before eventually relocating

to Illinois to be closer

to Mary Ann’s family.

In late 2012, Papandrea

learned from a customer

that the Tinley Park site,

located at the 80th Avenue

Metra station in Tinley

Park, had became available.

“We took a look at it and

we knew how beautiful it

was, and we thought it was

a perfect place for showers

and weddings,” he said.

Today, the business caters

roughly 25 weddings

and 100 showers annually,

Papandrea said, adding

that “attentive service” is

a staple of the restaurant’s

business model.

“That was one of the

biggest things I saw going

to a wedding locally,” he

said. “I noticed, just sitting

there, just waiting for

my server to come back,

and I thought, ‘It would be

so much different if they

would hover, just a little ...

It’s very important to make

sure that [table No. 18]

feels just as important as

table No. 1.”

At Parmesans, the pizza

is always a crowd-pleaser.

The restaurant offers a wide

variety of gourmet pizzas,

including a chicken Parmesan

pizza ($14.50) and a

cheeseburger pizza ($12.95)

that comes with small patties,

mozzarella and American

cheeses, ketchup, mustard,

and pickles.

“[There are] things that

are so unique that you

would think, ‘Woah, that’s

different,’” Papandrea

said. “And then you eat it

and you’re like, ‘Woah,

that was like a fresh-baked

cheeseburger on its own

little crust.’”

Many of the dishes incorporate

the restaurant’s

signature pesto — a sauce

made in-house that can be

found on many of the pizzas,

as well as appetizers

such as the pesto mozzarella

bread ($6.95).

Out of all of the items on

the menu, Papandrea’s favorite

is the fried calamari,

which comes with marinara

and lemon ($12.95).

Parmesans’ desserts,

which include Italian specialties

such as the cannoli

($3.95) and tiramisu ($34

for a whole cake, $5.95

for a slice) are all made at

the restaurant, without any

canned fillings, Papandrea

said.

“If I make an ice cream,

it’s maybe creme anglaise,

so I make the base first, then

we make the ice cream,” he

said. “It’s the same thing

with any frosting or icing

we use — I never open a

can, let’s put it that way. So,

that makes the difference.”

At Parmesans Station in Tinley Park, the chicken Parmesan pizza ($14.50) is one of

the restaurant’s top sellers. Photos by Nuria Mathog/22nd Century Media

Tasteful Kitchen Completes Luxury

Townhome Experience at Brookside Meadows

The heart of the home is your

kitchen. It is the gathering place for

family and friends to enjoy food,

kindle relationships and make great

memories. Crana Homes puts a

great deal of thought into your

Brookside Meadows kitchen with

stylish layouts, attractive materials

and quality appliances all designed

to complete your ‘tasteful kitchen

experience.’ These attractive luxury

townhomes, now in their final

construction phase, are quietly

hidden away in Tinley Park behind

a large wooded tract with lakes

and open spaces. Since prices are

still ranging from the upper-$200s

(including site) demand is high and

buyers are urged to visit soon before

prime sites disappear.

Crana Homes’ decades-earned

reputation for craftsmanship,

customer satisfaction and high

resale value culminates at Brookside

Meadows. These homes uphold

the Crana quality promise for

design, quality and attention to

detail. Buyers can select from three

different award-winning floorplans:

the Fahan II, the Lennan II, and

Crana’s newest offering here, the

Dunree II.

All floorplans follow a large open

space kitchen design featuring

stunning granite countertops

surrounded by beautiful custom

maple cabinets. The Fahan II is

a roomy and beautiful 3,303 total

square foot luxury townhome

(including a 1,216 sq.’ basement)

with an attached twocar, dry-walled

garage and cement driveway. The

1st floor master bedroom offers an

optional coffered ceiling and the

optional master bath plan includes

a relaxing soaker tub. The two-story

entrance foyer is stately and inviting

and spreads out to a split level

floor plan that has three bedrooms

(fourth bedroom optional) and two

and a half baths.

An elegant loft overlooks a

comfortable great room which is

adjacent to the kitchen. Elegant

hardwood oak is hand chosen for

doors, floors, railings and trim.

Ceramic tile covers the floors in

the foyer as well as the bathrooms

- which also feature granite vanity

tops. Entertain family and friends

with a full lookout basement and

a patio which are included in the

Fahan II.

The Lennan II is a stately two/

three bedroom split level home

which includes most of the features

of the Fahan II except the spacious

master suite is located on the upper

level and the Lennan II features a

dining/family room. It has 3,167

square feet of total space (including

a 1,049 sq.’ basement) with a twocar,

dry-walled garage and cement

driveway.

The Dunree II has 3,194 square

feet of living space (including a

sizable 1,226 sq.’ basement). There

are three bedrooms and two and

half baths. The master suite - with

walk in shower and seat - is on the

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

great for hosting guests.

All homes have underground

utilities, deluxe landscaping and

first floor laundry rooms. Buyers

fireplace, walkout basement,

coffered ceilings, skylights and a

soaker tub in the master bath.

and Tinley Park, named “The Best

Place In America to Raise a Family”

by Bloomberg’s BusinessWeek,

maintains 40 parks and the huge

With Jack Dryfhout

Jack Dryfhout is an Orland Park resident.

He just finished his freshman season

at Chicago Christian, was a setter

on the inaugural boys varsity volleyball

team and also played soccer in the fall.

You were a freshman setter on a

first-year varsity program. How

did that go for you and the team?

Just coming in my first year and playing

good competition was great. I got to play

at a high level with guys like [senior outside

hitter] Zach Bulthuis. We had great

crowds that were motivating. We finished

with a winning record (18-11). It was

good. It was fun.

How did you get involved in

playing volleyball?

My two older sisters played it. Jordan,

who will be a sophomore at Augustana,

and Maddie, who will be a senior at Chicago

Christian this fall. So, my mom,

Becky, really wanted me to play it, so I

did. But this is really only my second year

playing it full-time.

Do you play any other sports?

Yes. I also play soccer in the fall. That

starts right when club volleyball ends.

I’ve been playing soccer a lot longer than

volleyball, though.

So which sport do you like better?

Volleyball. I like that there’s always action.

I’m always setting the ball or doing

something with it on defense.

Have you always been a setter?

Yes. Jordan was a setter and my mom

wanted me to follow in her footsteps. I

like setting and always being involved.

What have you learned from

veteran Chicago volleyball coach,

Deb Lindemulder?

She’s helped my defense a lot. She’s

helped me get my fundamentals down.

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

She’s helped me a lot with the core stuff

that you really need.

What do you do to pump yourself

up before a game?

If we’re on a bus ride I listen to a lot of

music. Mostly old rock songs like Queen

and Led Zeppelin. They are two of my

favorites. I listen to some modern tunes,

too. Mainly just something that gets me

in the zone.

If you could be one superhero, who

would you be and why?

The Flash, just to make my life easier,

just because I want to be places and do

things quickly. So, not so much that I want

to save the world; I just want to make my

life better.

What is your spirit animal?

A cat. Because they can be lazy as much

as they want. I’m not lazy on the court or

playing sports. But otherwise, I can be.

What’s the best thing about being

an athlete at Chicago Christian?

The people. It’s just great to play with

them. Plus, the coaches. We’ve got a lot

of great coaches and veteran ones like

coach Lindemulder, who was here in the

[1980s]. They know what they’re talking

about.

Providence rally falls short in

sectional final loss to Marist

STEVE MILLAR

Contributing Editor

Even down to its final

out with a six-run deficit,

Providence was not going

to go down easily to Marist

in the Class 4A Lockport

Sectional championship

game on Saturday, June 1.

In typical Celtics fashion,

they made things interesting

in the seventh

inning, scoring a pair of

two-out runs and nearly

getting the tying run to the

plate before falling 9-5.

“I’m proud of our boys,”

Providence coach Mark

Smith said. “They battled

back. I don’t think a lot of

people gave us a chance,

and we showed we’re a

better club than our record

indicated.

“Even right there at the

end, they fought, we were

a hair away from getting

the tying run to the plate.

That’s what this program

does. It’s built on heart.

These kids fought to the

end, and I’m really proud

of them.”

Providence (23-16)

pulled within four on RBI

singles from Josh Mrozek

and Jake Mucha.

“We fight until the end,”

Mucha said. “Just keep

working harder, keep seeing

pitches, do what you

can to give your team a

chance to win.”

The Celtics had two runners

on and the tying run

in the on-deck circle after

Mucha’s single, but Justin

Janas induced Brennan

Geers to ground out to second

to seal the sectional

title for Marist (26-10).

“[Providence’s belief]

showed in that last inning,”

Smith said. “They

weren’t quitting. If that

ball gets through, we get

the tying run to the plate.”

Ultimately, it was two

big two-out swings that

cost Providence a spot in

the Elite Eight.

Jason Hodges and Kendal

Ewell hit three-run

home runs for Marist in

the third and fourth innings.

Both came with two

outs.

“That’s the difference

in the game,” Smith said.

“Ben [Vitas] was an out

away from getting out of

that, left it up. Good hitters

do damage to mistake

pitches. It was just a bad

pitch and [Hodges] made us

pay with three-run homer.

“Then again, the next

inning, two outs, another

three-run home run. That

made the difference.”

After Marist took a 2-0

lead in the first inning,

Providence answered with

three runs in the third.

After Ryan O’Neil

scored on a wild pitch,

Orland Park resident Jake

Hesselmann put the Celtics

on top with a two-run

single.

Marist pitcher Jack

Brannigan, a Notre Dame

recruit from Orland Park,

kept the Celtics in check

from then until the seventh.

He struck out 14.

“At least we can walk

away with our heads

up, knowing we at least

fought,” said Providence

senior Alex Helmin, an

Arizona State recruit. “It’s

better than laying down.

That’s something we can

be proud of.”

Helmin had a double and

a triple in a 6-2 win over

Stagg in the sectional semifinal

on May 29. Mrozek

hit a two-run homer.

Lockport resident and

Arizona State recruit Bryce

Barnett, after giving up

two runs in the first inning,

dominated the rest of the

way. He struck out 15 in a

complete-game victory.

For the Celtics, reaching

the sectional final after an

up-and-down regular season

was a meaningful accomplishment.

Providence struggled

with consistency all year.

The low point was a sixgame

losing streak from

April 28 to May 8 that included

a 16-6 defeat at the

hands of crosstown rival

Lincoln-Way Central.

The Celtics responded

by winning 10 of their final

12 games, including

the postseason. They captured

their eighth regional

title in the last nine years.

“It means a lot that

through all the bad things

we went through, we

pulled through and became

a team,” Helmin said. “We

played hard for each other.

It was fun to know that

every single guy on this

team cared and wanted to

be there.”

Smith praised his team

for its perseverance.

“It’s a great group of

kids,” he said. “They

bought into everything this

year, through the ups and

downs of the season, they

never quit. They kept their

heads up and they battled.

“It’s a team I was extremely

proud to coach.”

RedHawk revenge: Sandburg paid back for last year’s triumphs

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

June 2, 2018, was a huge day

in the history of Sandburg spring

sports.

The Eagles baseball and softball

teams won Class 4A sectional

titles over Marist squads

that were both seeded high in

their respective sectionals. The

RedHawks baseball team was

seeded second, and the powerful

softball team was seeded first.

It was a day of joy and triumph

for Sandburg.

With the unpredictably of

the two sports and the 20-plus

schools involved in the Illinois

High School Association sectionals,

who knew that the Red-

Hawks would be able to get their

revenge as soon as this year?

Thanks to 10th-seeded Sandburg’s

two upsets in regional

play in baseball and rain postponing

the softball action for a

day, there were Sandburg-Marist

tilts on the same day — May 29

— in the sectional semifinals.

The odds of that happening are

astronomical.

But it did happen, and this

time Marist got its redemption.

The top-seeded RedHawks

softball team beat fourth-seeded

Sandburg 1-0 at the Marist

Sectional and, later that night,

third-seeded Marist beat No. 10

Sandburg in baseball 7-1 at the

Lockport Sectional.

Marist, which was ranked No.

1 in the state earlier in the year

by Prep Baseball Report, got off

to a sluggish start but won 17 of

its last 22 games and outscored

its first three postseason opponents

by a combined score of

30-5.

“We’ve been playing well in

all phases of the game,” Marist

coach Kevin Sefcik, an Orland

Park resident, said. “The defense

has been outstanding. We’ve really

been a good offensive team

all year. The arms we face in the

postseason are outstanding. But

we have nine guys who can hit

the ball. Some teams have four

or five, and you catch a breather.

But we can go nine deep.”

Jack Brannigan, Conor Kelly,

Sandburg sophomore Lilli McGlothlin pitched a gem but lost a 1-0

heartbreaker to Marist. PHOTOS BY JEFF VORVA, 22ND CENTURY MEDIA

Brian Ward and Tristan Stefanos

are Orland Park residents on the

Marist roster.

No one had to remind Brannigan

what happened last year,

as Sandburg not only pulled off

an upset but also dominated the

Redhawks 8-0 at the Lockport

Sectional.

“We all remember what happened,”

he said. “Losing definitely

left a sour taste in our

mouths. It feels good to get one

this year.”

The game breezed along for

the first five innings. Marist was

up 1-0 at that point, and the game

was not even an hour old.

But the RedHawks did their

damage with a six-run sixth inning.

Sandburg finished 16-14.

In the softball game, Sandburg

(17-18) got out of a few jams

with big defensive plays, as the

game was scoreless heading into

the sixth. Marist did its damage

in that inning, as Cassie Lindmark

drove home Angela Zedak

with the lone run in the game.

Sophomore Lilli McGlothlin

pitched the gem for the Eagles

but suffered the loss.

OPPrairie.com

It was a fun year for Sandburg sports

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

The Sandburg sports

season ended on May

29 with sectional baseball

and softball losses to

Marist.

This was one of the few

school years the Eagles did

not win any team or individual

Illinois High School

Association state titles.

But there were plenty of

triumphs and enjoyable

moments at the Orland

Park school.

In chronological order,

here are The Orland Park

Prairie’s five favorite

sports stories of the 2018-

2019 school year.

Four for four

Anna Loureiro became

the first Sandburg girls

tennis player to qualify for

state four straight years in

October.

But the way she did it

her senior year was a little

different.

The first three years,

she qualified as a singles

player. But this season,

she paired up with Jayme

Gross, and the team had

a spectacular 28-1 record

and were named All-State.

Their only loss was to

Stevenson’s Alaina Kolli-

Athena Kolli in the fourth

round.

The Kollis finished second

in the state.

Crowe’s conquest

After shockingly missing

the state tournament

in 2018, senior Cameron

Crowe finished second in

the state in January at St.

Clair Bowl in O’Fallon.

The only bowler to beat

him was St. Charles East

freshman sensation Edgar

Burgos, who finished with

a 2,868 to Crowe’s 2,829.

Jayme Gross (left) and Anna Loureiro were All-State in tennis.

PHOTOS BY JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

Sandburg coach Jeff

Kwilose had a long hug

for Crowe after the bowler’s

final shot for Sandburg

on Lane 24 left a 7

pin for a 238. Even though

Joey Kopera won a state

title for Sandburg in 2012,

the coach said Crowe

obliterated every other record.

“Cameron was the best,”

the coach said. “Other than

him not winning the state

championship, he blew

away all of Joey’s records.

He set records in average,

300s, 800s — everything I

can think of off the top of

my head. He finished second

to a kid who bowled

amazing.”

Injured Nolan’s win over

No. 1

Sandburg senior Patrick

Nolan could have won a

state championship. Or

he could have missed the

IHSA finals completely

with a left knee injury that

had his coach wondering

if he could even wrestle. It

was later found out that he

had a torn ACL.

Although he did not win

the state championship at

138 pounds in Class 3A

at the State Farm Center

in Champaign on Feb. 16,

he picked up a medal by

finishing sixth. He also

picked up a ton of respect

for gutting it out while he

was in pain.

Nolan’s first opponent

on Feb. 14, was Luke

Odom of Edwardsville,

who was ranked No. 1 in

the state by two respected

ranking services, while

Nolan was ranked second.

In what arguably could

be one of the greatest firstround

matches in state history,

Nolan’s stunning lastsecond

takedown gave him

a 5-3 victory over Odom.

The match seemed to have

taken something out of

Nolan the rest of the way,

because of the injury. It

took more out of Odom,

who had to be taken to a

local hospital with concussion-like

symptoms and

was not able to participate

in the wrestlebacks.

“He’s a fighter; that’s

for sure,” Sandburg coach

Clinton Polz said of Nolan.

“He’s one of the toughest

guys I’ve ever met.”

Girls basketball’s future

Sandburg’s 15-14 mark

in girls basketball was a

source of pride, because

Cameron Crowe closed his outstanding career with a

second-place finish in the state tournament.

it was the first winning

season for the varsity program

since 2014-2015

even through the Eagles

lost their top player, Natalie

Stavropoulos to a knee

injury in November.

The 15th win — the victory

that guaranteed the

winning season — came in

the semifinals of the Class

4A Sandburg Regional on

Feb. 12, as the 10th-seeded

Eagles knocked off No. 8

Richards 37-34.

Richards Division I

prospect’ Halle Idowu,

who averaged 23 points

per game, was hounded

all night by three, four and

sometimes all five Eagles,

and was held to 14 points.

It might be awhile before

the Eagles suffer another

losing season. The

sophomore team finished

28-1, and it had a ton of

freshmen on that squad.

All-State times 8

The seven-year streak

of the Sandburg boys

3,200 relay team finishing

in the Top 4 was snapped.

But 22nd-seeded team of

Connor Devlin, Sam Rodriguez,

Eddie Slack and

Nico Calderon not only

barely made the 12-team

cut but also kept-their All-

State Top 9 streak alive at

eight years, as Calderon

leaned forward — and fell

— at the finish line to secure

that precious ninth

spot on May 25 at Eastern

Illinois in Charleston.

“That’s the happiest

ninth-place finish I’ve ever

had in 20 years of coaching

this sport,” Sandburg

coach Joe Nemeth said.

THURSDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK

No hardware, but D230 lacrosse had plenty to show this season

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY

MEDIA

1st and 3

PLAYERS FROM

SANDBURG WHO ARE

HAVING AN IMPACT

ON THEIR COLLEGE

BASEBALL TEAMS.

1. Hammerin’ Hampe

UIC ‘s Ryan Hampe

(above) hit two

home runs to lead

his team to a 6-5

victory over Milwaukee

in the Horizon

League championship

to allow the

Flames entry onto

the NCAA Tournament.

2. Triton Titan

Troy Jones was

named National Junior

IV Player of the Year

and was nominated

as an All-American.

3. Illini star

Branden Comia

played in 44 games

in the infield for

Illinois and hit .254

with four homers

and 20 RBI for a

team heading to the

NCAA Tournament.

Jeff Vorva

Sports Editor

The best team this

spring to not pick

up any postseason

hardware was the District

230 co-op boys lacrosse

team.

This is the second year

the Illinois High School

Association sanctioned

lacrosse, and there are not

yet enough teams to be

able to break the sectionals

down into regionals.

So, the team, hosted by

Andrew and featuring athletes

from Sandburg and

Stagg, won a pair of postseason

games, which in

most sports would get you

a nice regional plaque.

The T-Bolts beat Lockport

13-7 and Lemont

16-11, and their only shot

at a postseason title would

have happened if they

beat Lincoln-Way’s co-op

team. But that did not happen,

as Lincoln-Way won

9-8 on May 24 to claim

the Lockport Sectional

championship.

The Bolts had possession

in the closing seconds

but could not send the

game into OT.

So the team finished

Cameron Weldon (right) was one of the top defensive

players for the District 230 co-op boys lacrosse team.

PHOTOS BY JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

18-3, including two

postseason wins, a Sweet

16 appearance and no

postseason awards.

Always-enthusiastic

coach James Ramazinski

was pumped about the

campaign.

“We are very proud of

the work and effort the

players put in all season,”

he said. “We are excited

for the future and look

forward to continue growing

the sport.

All-Conference players

from the Independent

South Suburban Conference

for Andrew were

Jordan Cortez, Daniel

Slater, Cameron Weldon

(who was named Defensive

Player of the Year),

Thomas Cavanaugh,

Kevin Normoyle and

Blake Kellman. Honorable

mentions were Trevor

Ward and Michael Walsh.

The junior varsity and

freshmen teams were unbeaten

this season. Goalie

Brett Fassler and attacker

Brock Greene were

brought up from the JV

squad to get a little taste

of being on varsity for the

postseason.

Maybe it won’t be too

long before the team

brings home a postseason

plaque.

Arms aloft

Those who were at the

2018 IHSA state boys

track meet were treated

to one of the wildest

1,600-meter races you will

ever see.

Granite City’s Andrew

This year, Andrew O’Keefe, of Belleville, was able

to celebrate a victory in the IHSA state meet in the

1,600-meter event. Last year, he celebrated at the finish

line but lost to Sandburg’s Dylan Jacobs.

O’Keefe had a huge lead

over Sandburg’s Dylan

Jacobs in the final lap.

Jacobs turned the jets on

and caught O’Keefe at the

finish line. O’Keefe raised

his right fist in victory at

the line, but Jacobs had

beat him by 8/100ths of a

second.

O’Keefe had a good attitude

about it with reporters.

He knew he would

return in 2019, and in the

final lap on May 25 he

had a sizable lead on the

rest of the field at O’Brien

Field at Eastern Illinois

University in Charleston.

In kind of a goofy-yetcool

move, he raised his

right fist with 70 or so

yards to spare and then

raised both arms. This

year, there was no Jacobs

to catch him, since Jacobs

is now running at Notre

Dame.

“I tried not to be cocky

or anything like that,” he

told reporters. “This year,

I was going to do everything

I could to get back

to this moment and come

out on top.”

As for the fist pump?

“[It was] maybe just a

little bit of a fist,” he said.

“Last year, everyone was

making fun of me for it.

But last year, it was absolute

joy, like, I thought I

had done it.”

He was the first state

champion at his school

since 1973.

That’s something to

raise your arms about.

LISTEN UP

“We all kind of remember what happened. Losing definitely left

a sour taste in our mouths. It feels good to get one this year.”

Jack Brannigan — Marist baseball star and Orland Park resident on

beating Sandburg in the sectional a year after Sandburg knocked

off his team.
