PAWS highlights pets, volunteers at 45th anniversary

Amanda Del Buono

Freelance Reporter

Buddy is a cattle dog

mix who lives at the People’s

Animal Welfare Society

of Tinley Park. When

he arrived at the shelter,

Buddy was suffering from

heart worms. After more

than $2,000 in medical

treatment, he is ready to

find a new home.

“It’s more than $2,000

to treat heart worms, and

we’ll adopt him out for

around $300, so we don’t

get all the money back

that we put into him,” said

Danielle Radtke, PAWS

director and volunteer.

Needless to say, fundraising

is important for

the non-profit, no-kill animal

shelter. In honor of its

45th anniversary, PAWS of

Tinley Park hosted a 45th

anniversary celebration

fundraiser Friday, May 31

at Georgios Banquets.

The event featured several

raffles, a wine grab,

dinner and cocktails, and

a pet fashion show. Radtke

said that she wanted to

showcase the pets in the

fashion show, so that people

could see the animals

outside of the shelter and

hopefully be inspired to

adopt them.

“I want them to see how

different they are outside

of the shelter. Inside the

shelter, they’re scared,

they fight for attention,

some of them bark in their

cages,” she said. “I want

them to see how they are

when they feel more comfortable

and their true personalities

come out.”

This fundraiser will

prove one of the largest for

the shelter this year, with

all of the proceeds going to

PAWS of Tinley Park and

largely supporting medical

expenses, Radtke said.

Kelly Doherty, a Mokena

resident and 12-year

PAWS volunteer, said that

the dinner fundraisers

were annual, but haven’t

happened the past few

years, and she was happy

to see it come back.

“This is our big money

maker. It helps with vet

bills and shelter repairs,”

she said. “It benefits the

animals we work with and

try to find their forever

homes. They come from

different backgrounds, and

many of them would have

been put down elsewhere.”

Not only did the event

showcase the shelter’s

animals, but it also gave

recognition to the volunteers

who work hard to

find homes for all of the

animals that come through

the shelter.

“It’s a team effort. Everybody

drops everything

for these animals and it’s

really cool,” said Julie Peterson,

PAWS volunteer

and Tinley Park resident.

Doherty added: “All of

the volunteers really care

about the animals. We’re

really dedicated to finding

them a good home, and

that’s the overall feeling.”

Chris Zorich, former

defensive tackle for the

Chicago bears, emceed the

event and mingled with

attendees throughout the

night. Zorich said he was

happy to support the shelter

that adopted his Rottweiler

Icy to him several

years ago.

After seeing the Tinley

Park Fire Department

save Icy from drowning in

a local pond on the news,

Zorich was determined to

take the pup into his home.

The next morning, he was

surprised to see that he

wasn’t the only person

who wanted to give Icy a

home when he arrived at

the shelter, and was originally

turned down for the

adoption.

A week later, Zorich

received a phone call informing

him that Icy’s previous

adoption didn’t work

out, and asking if he’d still

be interested in adopting

Icy.

“I was honored that I

had the chance to adopt

Icy, and I’m sure everyone

in here as a great adoption

story just like mine.”

Zorich described himself

as “obsessed” with

dogs and touched by the

opportunity he had to

adopt Icy. This is what

drove him to give his time

back to the organization on

Friday night.

“They were thorough,

and I respected the fact

that I didn’t get preferential

treatment because I

was on the Bears,” he said.

PAWS president Paul

Egan reflected on the

growth of the organization

during the past 45

years. The organization

was started by a few local

women in a shack in Tinley

Park, he said.

Today, it is located in

its third location on West

191st Street and is outgrowing

that space. In fact,

a boy scout in the area will

be helping PAWS of Tinley

Park build a storage

building as an Eagle Scout

project, Egan said.

Additionally, PAWS of

Tinley Park is 250 volunteers

strong and houses an

average of 40 dogs and 80

to 90 cats on average. Taking

it further, the shelter is

nearing its 31,000th adoption,

he said. In fact, it’s adopted

out a total of 472 rescued

pets so far this year,

according to its website.

A group of attendees at the Sapphire Soiree enjoy the celebration of 45 years of

PAWS Tinley Park.

“We plan to continue

just saving animals. Without

people supporting

us, we couldn’t save one,

and every time we ask for

something, the people of

Tinley Park and the community

flood us with generosity.

It shocks us sometimes,”

Egan said.

Tinley Park resident

Amanda Gray attended the

event to further her support

for the organization

from which her family

has adopted rescued animals

in the past. Although

Gray makes donations to

the shelter every year, this

was the first time she attended

one of its fundraising

events.

“My family has gotten a

lot of rescue animals from

PAWS. I feel like it’s well

known in Tinley Park and

does great work,” she said.

“The volunteers work hard

to help these animals, and

I know it’s hard to do. …

It’s too heart wrenching

for me to do it, so this is

how I can support.”

PAWS of Tinley Park is

always looking for volunteers

and accepts donations

of all types. The shelter is

located at 8301 W. 191st

Street in Tinley Park.

Tinley Park Veterans Commission reflects on importance of Memorial Day at ceremony

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

Tinley Park residents

converged at General Patrick

E. Rea Veterans Plaza

to honor the brave men and

women who lost their lives

while serving as members

of the military during the

Village’s annual Memorial

Day ceremony.

Hosted by the Village

of Tinley Park Veterans

Commission on May 27,

the event featured speeches,

patriotic music – by

the Andrew High School

band – a wreath-laying

ceremony, gun salute and

many stories of bravery

and sacrifice.

Veterans Commission

Chairman Maj. Wiley Roberts

– who spent the morning

attending dedications

at local cemeteries before

serving as the Master of

Ceremonies at the Memorial

Day event – noted the

importance of every fallen

hero’s personal story.

“When I was in Iraq, I

learned all about standing

stones. Before the written

word, these stones were

placed vertically to mark

special occasions. I related

that to the tombstones

that we saw and thought

about the stories,” Roberts

said. “The families at

those gravestones are able

to tell the stories of those

who died in service to their

country. We remember

those who have fallen, but

also the families that they

leave behind. We honor

our Gold Star Families

for that particular reason.

They tell the story.”

During the Memorial

Day Ceremony, Roberts

introduced members of

Veterans of Foreign Wars

Anthem and recite

American Legion Post

Chaplain, delivered an invocation

– and later a benediction

– before Mayor Jacob

Vandenberg shared his

opening remarks.

Vandenberg spoke of

the continued service of

veterans, many of whom

lives in the events surrounding

D-Day in World

War II. Grasmehr also

commended the Tinley

Park community for putting

“deeds into words”

and vice versa by honoring

service members.

Tinley Park resident Sal

Milazzo, an Army veteran

of the Korean War, was

grateful for the Village’s

ceremony and he hoped

that the meaning of Memorial

Day would be remembered

as families enjoyed

the rest of the holiday.

“It’s one thing to have

this function and everything,

but we sometimes

lose track of the men and

women who died in combat

and it goes by the wayside.

I’m hoping that more

people stay attuned to

what Memorial Day is all

about,” said Milazzo.

Mokena resident Fred

Cagle, Past Commander of

VFW Post 2791, spent 32

years serving the country.

As he reflected on those

who made the ultimate

sacrifice, he also took time

out before the ceremony

to share his appreciation

for the next generation of

service members including

his granddaughter who

recently enlisted in the

Army.

“It’s a great service and

I’m proud to have done

it. I was Command Sergeant

Major and it was

inspiring to see all the

new soldiers coming in,

the young people who all

volunteered. They’re motivated.

They’re dedicated.

They’re more educated

than I was when I went in

and it’s great,” said Cagle.

“I love it.”

The patriotism of the

next generation was also

highlighted during the ceremony

as Collin Standish

– the Voice of Democracy

Winner – shared an essay

he wrote entitled, “Why

My Vote Matters.”

The Memorial Day Ceremony

also paid tribute

to the recipients of new

paver bricks that have

been incorporated into

the walkway at the Gen.

Patrick E. Rea Veterans

Plaza. W.D. Rasmussen

III (Navy Corpsman), Jason

R. Brown, (US Coast

Guard), Anthony Czerwien

(US Army), James

Rago (Navy) and Colleen

Simon (Veterans Commission

Member) were all

honored in 2019.

Reflecting on the meaning

of the occasion, Roberts

noted that Memorial

Day is a one-of-a-kind

holiday.

“Armed Forces Day celebrates

everyone who currently

wears the uniform.

Then we have Veterans

Day and that is for people

who wore the uniform and

were able to return,” said

Roberts. “Memorial Day

is dedicated to those who

never took that uniform

off. They died in service to

our country, protecting our

freedoms, and that’s why

we do this today.”

The Veterans Commission

is looking forward to

offering the Tinley Park

community even more

ways to honor military service.

Roberts said that the

commission will soon be

breaking ground on a tank

display along Veterans

Parkway which will serve

as a landmark as well as

provide another location

to reflect on the service of

military personnel.

Ruck Chicago brings 22-mile walk to Tinley

Proceeds benefit

K9s for Veterans

Jacquelyn Schlabach

Editor

Every day on average,

22 military veterans die by

suicide.

In an effort to raise

awareness of PTSD in veterans

and to honor each of

those who die every day,

participants of Ruck Chicago–to

be held Saturday,

June 29– walk 22 miles.

For the last seven years,

Ruck Chicago has taken

over the streets of the city

with its 22 mile walk from

Glencoe to Navy Pier. This

year, co-founder and organizer,

Sean Schmeske, is

bringing the event to his

hometown of Tinley Park.

A ruck is a military term

used for when soldiers go

for long walks with equipment

on their backs. While

participants are welcome to

walk with weight on their

backs, Schmeske said it’s

by no means required.

“The reason you walk

with the weight is the

weight is supposed to signify

the soldiers that we lost,”

Schmeske said. “It’s supposed

to be like the weight

on your back, the burden

on your back, like you’re

doing this for them.”

Schmeske said that he,

along with a group of others,

walk with roughly 40-

50 pounds on their back.

“The whole point of this

is to raise awareness, so I’m

not trying to deter anyone

away that goes, ‘oh I would

love to do it, but I can’t

walk with all that weight on

my back,’” he said. “That’s

just optional. I’m not going

to turn you away if you’re

trying to come out and support

the cause because you

won’t carry weight on your

back.”

The route this year starts

at Centennial Park, and participants

will walk through

Tinley Park neighborhoods

on the sidewalks, venture

into Orland Park and walk

on a nature path in Oak

Forest, before heading back

to Tinley for a finish line after

party.

“I grew up at Centennial

and McCarthy parks; I’ve

been going to see Tinley

Park’s fireworks since I was

a little kid so I’m proud to

bring it to my hometown,”

Schmeske said. “And when

I asked the lady from the

park district she said, ‘oh,

that sounds great,’ because

Tinley Park is a huge military-backing

town so they

were excited to have us

and I was excited to bring

it here.”

Schmeske said he wanted

the event this year to be

more family-oriented and

he hopes the after party

will help do just that. There

will be free food donated

by Jet’s Pizza in Tinley

Park as well as Submarine

City. Children can have

their faces painted, go in a

jumpy house, get American

flag water tattoos, and

the whole family can enjoy

music from a DJ, play bean

bags and get a balloon from

a balloon artist.

“I’ve seen some veterans

come out with their

whole family, pushing kids

in buggies for 22 miles,”

Schmeske said.

While he said there is a

lot of participation from

families of veterans, he

would like to see more veterans

coming out to support

each other.

He said it takes about 6

hours to walk the 22 miles,

but the journey is made

possible by the determination

of participants who

hold the cause near and

dear to their hearts.

“I think from talking to

everybody when they do

it, their motivation is within.

A lot of them do this

in honor of a friend that

has committed suicide, so

that’s kind of their drive,”

Schmeske said.

K9s for Veterans–an organization

that provides

service dogs to veterans

with PTSD– has been the

recipient of donations from

Ruck Chicago for the last

three years.

“Sean came to a number

of events that we’ve had

and he’s seen that there’s

really a need for these service

dogs and these veterans

and he just felt like he

wanted to do something so

we could raise more funds

to provide more service

dogs to our veterans,” said

Michael Tellerino, CEO

and founder of K9s for Veterans.

“These service dogs,

they’re a game-changer in

the lives of a veteran, believe

me. They really are.”

Tellerino said it costs between

$10,000-15,000 to

get the dogs— which come

from shelters— train them

and provide food and other

necessary items. Once the

veteran is paired with a

dog, K9s for Veterans pays

for all the medical expenses,

food and toys for the life

of the animal.

“It doesn’t do any good

to give a veteran a service

dog and say well, here’s a

service dog that’s going to

help you through the day

but now you’re going to

have to worry about feeding

it, medical bills, it’s just

another mouth to feed, and

maintaining a dog, they’re

not cheap,” Tellerino said.

“So we just take all of that

out of the equation for

them.”

The dogs are trained

specifically for the veteran

that they will be servicing,

and go through months of

training. K9s for Veterans

has 53 service dogs in their

program, averaging about

two dogs that get paired

with a veteran per month.

“[The dogs] just do

a number of things for

our veterans to get them

through the day,” Tellerino

said.

Throughout the course

of K9s for Veterans partnership

with Ruck Chicago,

the organization has

received approximately

$10,000. Prior to each

event, Schmeske sets a goal

of how much he would like

to raise. This year’s goal is

$3,000, of which $1,053

has been raised as of press

time.

The unique thing about

Ruck Chicago, is the walk

is completely free, including

the after party. Ruck

Chicago raises money

simply through donations,

which can be made on their

website at ruckchicago.

causevox.com. Event T-

shirts can also be purchased

for $25.

“I personally do all this

stuff—because most people

think I’m a veteran and

I’m like no, no I’m not a

veteran—I’m just an active

supporter. My very close

cousin was in a helicopter

crash in the Marine Corps

so he passed away 12 years

ago, so I was always looking

for some way to give

back to the veteran community

and when I heard

about 22 veterans that kill

themselves a day, it was

like wow, that’s super crazy

so I was like, maybe this is

my way of helping out and

here I am,” Schmeske said.

Schmeske said that his

hopes for the future of

Ruck Chicago is to continue

having it in Tinley Park.

“I don’t even care if you

come out and walk the last

mile with us,” Schmeske

said. “It’s just all about

coming out, participation,

supporting our veterans

and just raising awareness

and raising money.”

Patrick Mizwicki Strive for 5 Foundation 5K supports education, community

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

The more than 300 participants

who signed up

to run or walk the course

of the Patrick Mizwicki

Strive for 5 Foundation 5K

were surrounded by inspiration

as they gathered at

the starting line near Breidert

Green Park.

Proceeds from the Saturday,

June 1, event, which

benefited the Patrick Mizwicki

Strive for 5 Foundation,

provided $1,000

scholarships for four Lincoln-Way

East seniors who

all epitomize the five pillars

– determination, sportsmanship,

hard work, friend

to everyone, do your best

– of the foundation and its

namesake Patrick Mizicki.

Along with the scholarship

recipients, Mizwicki

– who was fatally struck

by a vehicle at the age of

14 while running with his

cross country team in 2011

– was a big source of inspiration

throughout the

morning as his memory

encouraged participants to

dig deep, do their best and

help each other, just as he

always did.

Mark Zelenika, the

foundation’s president and

Patrick’s Frankfort Eagles

baseball coach for seven

years, explained that he

sees Patrick’s hustle and

heart in the participants of

the annual 5K.

“This is a community

event. Patrick left an indelible

mark on not only his

classmates, but the entire

community because of the

kind of kid he was,” said

Zelenika. “He was one of

those kids who may not

have been the most talented

baseball player, but he exuded

confidence, excitement

and he had the will to

go do whatever you needed

him to do. He was just that

kind of kid. It’s such a loss

for society that we lost Patrick

because I really do believe

he would have went

on to do something great.”

Patrick’s mother JoAnne

Mizwicki noted her son’s

drive and perseverance.

Despite not being selected

as a member of the Lincoln-Way

East baseball

team as an incoming freshman,

he kept a positive

attitude and switched his

focus to cross country.

“He loved running. He

loved the camaraderie of

the team,” said JoAnne

Mizwicki. “He was a real

go-getter and unified everybody.

He was a fun

person to be around so he

blended with those kids really

well.”

In the foundation’s eight

year existence, $60,000

has been awarded to Lincoln-Way

East students as

scholarships in Patrick’s

name. This year’s recipients

Tyler Keuch, Maggie

Alexa, Alexis Storen and

Gage Palmer were each selected

due to excellent applications

and compelling

essays detailing how they

exemplify the five pillars

of the foundation.

Palmer has plans to use

his scholarship toward an

11-week program to get

his commercial driver’s license.

He will then begin

the process to follow in his

father’s footsteps by applying

for Local 150’s apprenticeship

program.

Patrick Mizwicki Strive for 5 Foundation President Mark

Zelenika welcomes everyone to the 8th annual 5K held

Saturday, June 1.

“I think it’s awesome

how everything comes together

and how a job site

can start out as grass and

become a 30-story building,”

said Palmer. “I will

be applying for Local 150

in November. Hopefully,

I can get into the apprenticeship

program as fast as

I can.”

Hugs, high fives and

smiles were generously

exchanged from Strive

for 5 Foundation 5K participants

as the event felt

more like a gathering of

old friends than any kind

of competition. Mayor

Jim Holland was on hand

to welcome everyone and

countdown to the start of

the 5K and Kayley Smetana

– a previous scholarship

recipient – sang the

National Anthem.

After participants finished

the course, awards

were handed out to the top

three male and female finishers

– including the first

place finishers Ben Walczak

and Debbie Simental –

and, later, Zelenika hosted

a trivia contest with prizes

from local businesses.

“I want to give a big

thanks to all of our sponsors.

These are all Frankfort

area businesses and Frankfort

residents that have supported

us from day one,”

said Zelenika pointing to

the long list of sponsors on

the back of the 5K t-shirt.

“Family Hyundai of Tinley

Park, Bauer Buick and

Cadillac, CD & ME and so

many others. They’ve all

rallied behind us.”

JoAnne Mizwicki

echoed his appreciation

for the community at large.

“The people here have

been wonderful. The mayor

has been wonderful. We

get such a great amount

of volunteers coming out

each year,” she said. “The

people is what makes our

town so great. It’s heartwarming

that they’re still

here after eight years.”

Tinley man sentenced to

more than 11 years in prison

for selling guns and heroin

Jacquelyn Schlabach

Editor

A Tinley Park man

was sentenced May 29

to 11-and-a-half years in

prison for selling heroin

and guns to an informant

working on behalf of law

enforcement in 2017, according

to a statement released

by the United States

Attorney’s Office for the

Northern District of Illinois.

Antoine Jackson, 42,

sold heroin, three guns

and ammunition to an

informant— which was

unknown to him at the

time— in the summer of

2017. According to the

statement from the U.S.

Attorney’s Office, Jackson

netted a total of $6,565 in

cash from the sales. He

also sold heroin to the informant

in December 2017

and March 2018, earning

him $4,500.

Jackson reportedly

pleased guilty last year to

one count of dealing firearms

without a license,

one count of distribution

of a controlled substance,

and one count of using and

carrying a firearm during a

drug trafficking crime.

According to the U.S.

Attorney’s Office, two of

the deals occurred at Jackson’s

residence in Tinley

Park and another one occurred

in a Tinley Park

forest preserve.

The guns sold included

an AK-47 rifle and two

handguns, according to the

U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Jackson reportedly referred

to himself as a “one

stop shop” for firearms and

narcotics to the informant

during one of the deals.

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.”

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.

The car club will gather

in the Big R lot from 4-7

p.m. every Sunday through

September.

Five reasons to

spend 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.

For complete details,

visit 22ndCenturyMedia.

com/events.

Our first event is Ladies

Night Out - Summer

Social from 5-8 p.m.

Thursday, June 13, at the

Orland Park Crossing outdoor

shopping center. The

following are five reasons

why you should join us

June 13.

1. When is the last time

you’ve taken time for you?

Bring a friend, or come

alone and make some new

friends. This is a girls night

out, so come and have

some fun with us.

2. Looking to update

your look or wondering

what’s in for summer?

Check out our fashion

show at 6:30 p.m. presented

by Jenny Applegate

of The Leading Image.

Applegate is a certified

personal stylist and image

consultant who had an

apprenticeship with Stacy

London of TLC’s “What

Not to Wear.” The show

will not be one to miss.

3. We have more than

50 vendors scheduled for

this event and the diversity

in what they offer

alone is reason to visit.

From clothing and jewelry

to health and beauty, there

will be something for

everyone. Stop by and

find out what these local

businesses have to offer.

4. Come and tap into

your creative side by

doing a project with DIY

Sign Party for a small fee.

5. It’s free admission.

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

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.

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

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.

Girl’s lemonade stand raises big bucks for good causes

Will O’Brien

Freelance Reporter

Most children start a lemonade

stand to buy a toy or a bike.

Kiera Fitzmaurice started hers to

give the proceeds away.

With her sixth annual charity

event approaching, the 9-yearold

Tinley Park resident 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.”

And give she has.

The stand — which as usual

will be set up in the Fitzmaurice

driveway at 16906 Sandy Lane

on Saturday, June 15 — has benefitted

a different organization

every year. Kiera’s father, Liam

Fitzmaurice, is a firefighter with

the Tinley Park Fire Department,

so first responder-related causes

are naturally close to the heart.

Beneficiaries to date have

been the Muscular Dystrophy

Association, Illinois Fire Safety

Alliance, American Brain Tumor

Association, Tinley Wish and

Midwest BBQ for the Brave.

This year’s recipient is RE;ACT

4 Ryan, a nonprofit dedicated to

equipping first responders with

mental health counseling and

training.

RE;ACT was started by the

family of Lt. Ryan Elwood, a

former Hometown and North

Palos firefighter who died by

suicide in 2015.

“The devastation from something

like that that’s left behind is

something we don’t want another

family to go through — ever,”

said Katie Elwood, Ryan’s aunt

and president of the organization.

Supporting one another is a

core value of the first responder

Pictured are Kiera and Liam Fitzmaurice outside their home during

the 2018 event. The 9-year-old Tinley Park resident has raised more

than $5,500 for a variety of charitable organizations through her

once-annual lemonade sale in recent years.

community, she and Liam said.

“What we’re doing, what

they’re doing is incredibly typical

of the first responder community,”

Elwood said. “It’s such

a tight network, and once you’re

part of the family, you know they

have your back on everything.”

RE;ACT has raised more than

$100,000, primarily through big

annual fundraisers at 115 Bourbon

Street, which goes toward

hiring counselors for first responders

in need, Elwood said.

This year, the group is switching

gears to a golf outing, set for

Wednesday, Aug. 28, at Silver

Lakes Country Club in Orland

Park.

But overcoming the stigmas

of mental health, especially in

the emergency response profession,

is no easy task, making efforts

like Kiera’s lemonade stand

critically important to keeping the

conversation going, Elwood said.

“We can’t do all the things we

want to do without the ongoing

support of events like this,” she

said.

Kiera’s event has gotten a bit

bigger and a bit more complex

with each passing season.

In addition to the lemonade —

made from the same recipe each

year and still costing just 50 cents

a glass — the event has grown to

include fire trucks, engines and

ambulances from the Tinley department,

as well as a collection

of other custom vehicles. Grilled

meats and other barbecue foods

are part of the mix too.

Lots of fire department personnel

come out to support the

cause, as do neighbors, friends

from school and others who just

happen to pass by. Visitors are

encouraged to stick around and

socialize.

“It’s definitely become something

that’s more than just a kid’s

lemonade stand,” Liam said.

“It’s starting to feel like a big

block party or community function,

we get so many people out

here.”

The stand will be open from

about 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. As

usual, Kiera’s friends and longtime

lemonade helpers Sophia

and Colin Cescato will be alongside

her at the booth.

Kiera said she plans to keep

the stand going for years into the

future. Giving back feels good,

she said, and the event’s impact

has already made a noticeable

difference.

The year after the stand raised

funds of Tinley Wish, an organization

that supports local

families in need, a man in a truck

stopped by and donated $100

on the spot, Liam said. The man

had been on the receiving end of

Wish’s aid and, back on his feet,

wanted to pay the good deed forward.

“It feels really good because

every time we do it, there’s more

and more people who come,” Kiera

said. “I feel like I want to do

it every day.”

Remaining Who members are old but can still rock

JEFF VORVA

Contributing Editor

The iconic rock lyric “I

hope I die before I get old”

keeps getting more ironic

as the decades whizz by.

Pete Townsend wrote it

in the 1965 hit “My Generation”

for the Who and

Roger Daltrey has been

shredding his voice for 50

years singing it.

Back in the mid-60s,

there were established establishment

artists such as

Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin

and the squarest of the

square, Lawrence Welk

and his orchestra. That was

the old generation.

There were also the

long-hair troublemakers

such as the Rolling Stones,

the Who and late-60s Beatles.

The sex, drugs and

rock and roll generation

was clashing with people

who crooned “Everybody

Loves Somebody,” “Fly

Me to the Moon” and

“Bubbles in the Wine.”

“I hope I die, before I

get old.”

Those eight words

seemed to sum it up for

the new breed of 60s musicians.

The Who stopped by for

a show at the Hollywood

Casino Amphitheatre in

Tinley Park on a chilly

May 21 evening.

Half of the Who - Keith

Moon and John Entwistle

- died before they got

old. But stepping onto

the Tinley Park stage was

75-year-old Daltrey and

Townsend, who turned 74

two days prior to the show.

Sharing the stage was a -

gasp - orchestra.

Now, there may be some

hard-core rap fans, metalheads

and EDM enthusiasts

who might look at the

Who the way the hip kids

of the 60s looked at Sinatra

and his ilk, but there

seemed to be plenty of

patrons from all ages who

enjoyed the show. This

wasn’t just the world’s

largest nursing home in the

grass and under the roof.

Kids in school jackets

joined adults with AARP

cards to listen to the music.

The fellas don’t jump

around onstage like scalded

monkeys like they used

to and while Townsend

still windmills his 74-yearold

arm while playing the

guitar, there didn’t appear

to be any blood on his fingers

as there were in the

good old days.

The orchestra enriched

many of the songs including

a handful of “Tommy”

and “Quadrophenia” tunes.

Andrew grad’s artwork to be displayed at US capitol for a year

Jacquelyn Schlabach

Editor

Andrew graduate Stephanie Curtiss took a picture of these plant leaves that won the United States Congressional Art Competition for the 1st

Congressional District. Photo submitted

When Andrew High

School art teacher David

Caroll sees outstanding

artwork made by his students,

he holds on to them.

Caroll noticed a unique

photograph taken by recent

graduate Stephanie

Curtiss that he told her she

should submit to the United

States Congressional

Art Competition.

The third student to do

so in school history, Curtiss

won.

What’s even more impressive,

is she had never

taken a fine arts course

until her senior year when

she took color photography.

Out of 52 high schools

and over 65 students who

submitted artwork in the

1st Congressional District,

Curtiss’ photograph of

plant leaves in front of her

grandmother’s home will

proudly hang at the U.S.

Capital for one year. She

also will receive a paid

round-trip to Washington

D.C. for a reception for

all the winners across the

country.

“[My grandma] always

plants something weird

every year and I saw it one

time when I was over there

so I decided to take a picture,”

Curtiss said.

Curtiss said she loves

taking pictures of nature,

so it was only natural for

her to grab her camera as

soon as she saw the unique

plant last summer.

“I guess I’ve always

liked taking pictures of

nature so I kind of look

for that when I’m out and

around my area,” she said.

“The vibrance of the colors

and how detailed the

leaves of the plant are, I

really liked.”

Caroll, her color photography

teacher her senior

year, noted that it was the

vibrant color and detail of

the photo that caught his

eye, too.

“[The leaves] seem to

be something that any

regular person who isn’t

an artist or photographer,

might walk past 100 times

and not notice,” Caroll

said. “Here is this everyday

thing that we see out

in nature, and she took the

time to capture it on film

and made a big beautiful

photograph. It’s about her

looking and noticing these

things.”

The office of Bobby

Rush, U.S. representative

for the 1st Congressional

District, gathered a panel

of five judges to pick the

winner of the art competition.

Constituent Services

Associate James Teague

said that Curtiss received

the highest amount of

votes from the judges. The

pieces are judged on three

criteria: originality, technical

proficiency and expression

of the piece. They

then rate the artwork on a

scale of one to five, with

five being the highest.

“David Caroll is an excellent

teacher and for the

past two or three years, his

students have won the art

competition,” Teague said.

“He really is involved and

that’s why I try to get out

to the teachers and let them

know that I know it’s not a

part of your everyday curriculum

but this is something

that the students can

really benefit off of.”

Curtiss will take the trip

to D.C. on Monday, June

24. There she will meet

Rush and the rest of the

winners from the competition.

“I actually was just

walking down the hallway

in school and my photography

teacher was talking

to another staff member

and he called me over and

told me in the hallway during

passing period that I

had won this free trip to

Washington,” Curtiss said.

“And I had no idea that the

free trip was involved so

I was honestly just super

surprised about it because

I’ve never won anything

like that, either.”

“It’s quite an honor,”

Caroll said. “She is an outstanding

student.”

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.

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

can select options like an impressive

fireplace, walkout basement,

coffered ceilings, skylights and a

soaker tub in the master bath.

Sprinkler system, smoke detectors

and Lake Michigan water are

provided in all homes. Brookside

Meadows homes include costefficient,

energy-saving features like

a high-efficiency furnace and Lo-E

glass throughout. Other ‘green’

features include an Energy Miser

hot water heater, vented soffits,

1.75” insulated entrance doors,

energy efficient appliances and

Tuff-R insulated wall sheathing.

Hidden inside Tinley Park,

Brookside Meadows is still close

to everything: retail, dining,

transportation routes, Metra rail

station and airports. The school

system is among the best in the state

and Tinley Park, named “The Best

Place In America to Raise a Family”

by Bloomberg’s BusinessWeek,

maintains 40 parks and the huge

Bettenhausen indoor recreational

center.

The heart of your home is an

attractive and fully functional

kitchen. See for yourself at

Brookside Meadows’ fully furnished

and beautifully decorated models.

The sales center is open Monday

through Thursday 10:00am to

4:00pm; Saturday and Sunday

TPHS gets a huge transfer

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

It looks like D.J. will get A.J.

In one of the most shocking offseason

high school basketball stories in the state,

one of the nation’s top freshmen, 6-foot-9

A.J. Casey, is transferring from Simeon to

Tinley Park High School. He is expected

to be with the team for practices and summer

league games this month while also

attending elite camps in June.

“We’re really excited for this opportunity,”

veteran Titans coach D.J. Brown

said on Sunday, June 2. “We can’t wait to

get started. We’re really looking forward

to not just the summer but also the winter

season. It’s just something that happened

and we’re excited.”

One Twitter tweeter called it, “The best

thing to ever happen in the history of Tinley

Park.”

Casey, a starting center for the Wolverines

his freshman season, also possesses

guard skills.

Casey’s father, Andre Casey, Sr., told

the Chicago Sun-Times the move was

“nothing serious in terms of anything to

do with Simeon but he’s going to be living

with his mother in Tinley Park.”

Assuming Casey stays at TPHS for

three years, it could change the climate at

the school. Last year, coaches were hoping

that the school’s new field house, which is

expected to open in the fall, would keep

district athletes at home. Having a player

with Casey’s caliber at the school can also

help that mission.

As for basketball, the Titans needle was

pointing up even before this blockbuster

news. Brown has coached the team for

Tinley Park boys basketball coach D.J.

Brown said he is excited that A.J. Casey

is coming to his program. JEFF VORVA/22ND

century media

12 years and had not enjoyed a winning

season for seven straight years until 2018-

19, when the team opened the season 11-4

and finished 14-11. TPHS graduated a ton

of seniors but had hopes underclassmen

could keep the winning seasons coming.

Future150.com ranks Casey as the 15th

best player in the nation in his class and

seventh as a point guard. He already has

an offer from Illinois. When he was a

13-year-old at Arbor Park Middle School,

a YouTube video of him dunking drew

40,000 views and drew comments such

as, “This kid has the goods,” and, “He reminds

me of Paul George.”

At Simeon, he was a rare freshman

starter in a wildly successful program

and he hit a game-winning basket in the

postseason in the closing seconds to beat

Brother Rice.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

10 Questions

with Justin Luckett

Do you have any

pump up music before

meets?

GIRLS SOCCER

Hoping this could be the start of something big

Senior T-Bolts leave

a legacy after twin

sectional titles

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

Timing is everything

Andrew’s girls soccer

team had the second-best

season in school history,

going 21-6-1 and making

it to the supersectional.

The trouble is, the Thunderbolts’

best season came

last year, when they finished

fourth in the state in

Class 3A and had plenty of

talent returning from that

team.

A narrow view is that

the Bolts season was disappointing

as they came

up short this year.

The broader view is that

they came up with a historic

two-season package

that could set the tone for

future seasons.

“We gave them a legacy,”

senior Megan Nemec

said.

The season came to an

end with a 2-1 overtime

setback to Lyons at the

Reavis Supersectional on

May 28 in Burbank.

Nemec, who is heading

to Loyola in the fall, knotted

the game at 1-1 with

5 minutes, 2 seconds left

in regulation but Illinoisbound

Eileen Murphy

scored in the first overtime

with what turned out to be

the winning goal. Murphy

also scored a second-half

goal to open the scoring in

the game.

“What are your going to

Samantha Koppers executes a bicycle kick against

Lyons in a 2-1 supersectional loss. JEFF VORVA/22ND

CENTURY MEDIA

do about Eileen Murphy?”

said Andrew coach Loren

Zolk. “She’s on a different

level and made two incredible

goals. It’s not how we

wanted it to end but I am

proud of how we battled.”

Murphy, Nemec and T-

Bolt goalie Gabby Sportiello

were teammates during

the club season for the

Windy City Pride.

Sportiello, who helped

keep the game scoreless

in the first half with some

leaping saves, said the 2019

campaign was successful.

“We were just one game

away from going back,”

Sportiello said. “We gave

it our all against Lyons and

they beat us. That happens.

We made them fight for it.’’

Zolk said that despite

not making the Final Four,

this could have been the

best in Andrew history.

“This team was better

overall than last year’s

team,” Zolk said. “Last

year, we got to play the

supersectional at home,

which was a huge advantage.

We got through to

the semifinals, which was

a great thing. But I thought

this group was better overall.

Winning back-to-back

sectionals is unheard of so

we are proud of that.

“If you win a sectional,

that’s a huge, huge deal.

Toward the end of the season,

we were putting things

together and I thought that

we could make a run in the

postseason and we did.”

Prior to the Lyons loss,

the T-Bolts won seven

straight.

The Thunderbolts will

graduate 10 seniors but

there were 11 underclassman

on the postseason roster

and the junior varsity

squad finished 14-1-1 and

outscored opponents 85-6

while the freshmen finished

14-0 and outscored

opponents 79-1.

BASEBALL

Titans want to build on back-to-back regional titles

JONATHAN BARLAS

Freelance Reporter

After Tinley Park’s 6-5

Illinois High School Association

3A St. Laurence

Sectional semifinal loss

against Joliet Catholic

May 29 at Ozinga Park,

Titans’ head coach Josh

O’Shea hurried off the

field to avoid any Hillmen

celebration from the third

base dugout.

With his head down running

straight towards Jake

Bergquist – who checkswung

a dribbler to the

first baseman for the final

out of TPHS’ season –

O’Shea put a hand on his

shoulder, walking him toward

the rest of the team.

Of the emotions felt huddled

around one another,

were not ones of defeat,

heartbreak or even sadness

– but satisfaction in the

Titans’ back-to-back sectional

appearances and two

consecutive regional titles.

Joliet Catholic knocked

out Tinley Park in the

same exact scenario, 11-

0, last season, similarly

advancing into a Saturday

sectional final.

O’Shea’s mindset for the

Titans’ was simple heading

into familiar conditions:

compete.

While JCA touted historical

advantage, Colin

Wilma’s eight strikeout

performance kept TPHS in

range of reaching its first

sectional title. But trouble

in the sixth inning led to

a season-ending performance,

falling 6-5 in the final

innings to the Hillmen.

Tinley Park completed

the 2019 season 26-7 (17-

2 in conference) winning

the South Suburban Blue

Conference as well as

another regional championship

under O’Shea in

his fifth season as head

coach.

Titan fans are hoping the

back-to-back regional titles

can be the start of something

big. Prior to 2018, it

was 25 years before TPHS

won a regional crown.

“I think it’s just the expectation

of, ‘hey, we’re

going to play with these

teams.’ There’s no intimidation,”

the coach said. “I

feel like every year we’ve

accomplished some sort of

goal. When I first got here

in 2013, I just honestly

wanted to be competitive

with Oak Forest and Lemont

– that’s it. We’re going

to be a third-place finisher

and be competitive. And

when we did that, I wanted

to beat those teams and

now for two years, we

have. Now we want to advance

and last year we did,

and got smoked by Joliet

Catholic.

“But this year, I wanted

to be competitive with

those types of teams, and

we were all year. So now,

just continue to put those

teams on our schedule, on

our lower levels, and I think

you do rise up. Your expectation

when you really start

competing is when you win

some games and not to be

intimidated by anyone. Our

expectation is we’re going

Colin Wilma of Tinley Park High School, struck out

eight hitters in a 6-5 loss to Joliet Catholic Academy.

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

to win some of those games

and be competitive like we

have been. It’s going to be

our turn.”

O’Shea enjoyed the

team’s success in the past

two seasons.

“When we came in, zero

players committed to play

college ball. Now, we have

eight seniors going on to

play college ball,” he said.

“I think it’s just because

we’ve always preached

fun, man. We do work

hard, but I just preach every

time if we have the opportunity

to have fun playing

baseball, we’ll have

fun. And the difference we

have with players going on

to play in college shows

that they like being with

our program.’’

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

Jeff Vorva

Sports Editor

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY

MEDIA

1st and 3

IT’S THE SEASON FOR

POSTSEASON AWARDS,

AND HERE ARE A FEW

BIG AWARDS THAT

HAVE COME ANDREW

HIGH SCHOOL’S WAY

FOR SPRING SPORTS

1. Softball star

Softball junior

catcher Kaitlin Tholl

(above) was named

the SouthWest Suburban

Conference

Player of the Year.

2. Baseball honor

T-Bolt baseball star

Jimmy Carey was

named the South-

West Suburban Red

Conference Player

of the Year.

3. Coach of the Year

Andrew girls soccer

coach Loren Zolk

was named the

Illinois High School

Soccer Coaches Association

Section 14

Coach of the Year.

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

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.

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

ever see.

Granite City’s Andrew

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 about 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
