ADOPTION EVENT

sponsored by

Class of 2019 graduates (left to right) Rana Muratoglu, of Lake Bluff, Maddy Javier,

of Lake Bluff, and Nikole Tzioufas, of Lake Forest, share a laugh at the Lake Forest

High School graduation ceremony Saturday, June 8, on the front lawn at the high

school. David Kraus/22nd Century Media

Class of 2019 reflects on strong

foundation built at LFHS

Olivia Vallone

Editorial Intern

Lake Forest High School

graduates walked across

the stage on the beautiful

front lawn of LFHS on the

overcast day of Saturday,

June 8, to accept their diplomas.

Dr. Chala Holland, principal

of LFHS, handed

each recipient their degree

and gave a speech about

change and how the class

of 2019 has undergone so

many. According to Holland,

what makes the 84th

graduating class of LFHS

special is that they are the

most outspoken class she

has ever seen.

“This group of students

has been very vocal in

terms of who they are, what

they believe, what they enjoy,”

Holland said.

Holland started at the

high school when the class

of 2019 were freshmen, so

she got to see them grow

“literally, socially and academically”

during their

time at LFHS.

Out of the 395 graduating

student, 156 were part

of the National Honors Society

and 135 were Illinois

State Scholars.

Student speakers at the

ceremony were Senior

Class President Claire Mahoney

and Student Council

President James (JD)

O’Keane.

O’Keane reflected on the

class of 2019’s high school

experience and how they

went through it all together.

He thanked everyone for

helping the class be what

they turned out to be.

“But as we move beyond

our caps and gowns, we

must never forget where we

came from,” O’Keane said.

“We came from an amazing

school with an undeniable

foundation for success

in our futures. We learned

from some of the best teachers

and some of us were

lucky enough to find a mentor

or two along the way,

thank you Dr. Holland.”

O’Keane ended his

speech by leading his

classmates in the signature

LFHS chant for the last

time.

“In high school you get

so comfortable here, and

obviously I’m going to

miss that a lot, but I think

changing it up, being uncomfortable,

is also a really

big part of growing, so I’m

excited about that,” Mahoney

told The Leader.

As senior class president,

Mahoney organized seniorspecific

events to draw the

class closer together in their

final year of high school.

She mentioned some of her

favorite memories of high

school were being with her

volleyball team after a big

win and spending time with

the Class of 2019 at other

sports events supporting

their classmates.

Mahoney and O’Keane

both described their class

as a ‘spirited’ group. Both

seniors got the chance to

lead the school in the 2018

pep rally and from then on

observed their class as being

extremely involved and

Lake Forest City Council

City approves Lake Forest Parks and

Recreation’s 10-year Strategic Master Plan

Stephanie Kim

Freelance Reporter

After a year in the making,

the Lake Forest Parks

and Recreation 10-year

Strategic Master Plan received

approval from the

City Council at its Monday,

June 3 meeting.

The plan will serve as a

roadmap for the city and

key stakeholders on how

to align and drive continual

growth and improvement

of open space, facilities,

recreation systems and services

from 2019 to 2029.

Mayor George Pandaleon

lauded the plan as impressive.

“It was very, very wellorganized

and presented,”

Pandaleon said. “And

wonderful public-private

partnership that brings this

about.”

The council approved

the plan by a 7-0 vote, with

an abstention from Ward 3

Alderman Ara Goshgarian

— due to his involvement

with The Friends of Lake

Forest Parks and Recreation

Foundation. The

foundation partnered with

the city’s parks and recreation

department to create

the plan and draft its 27

goals for facility, park and

open space, and planning

and policy improvements.

Upon the council’s approval,

Goshgarian commended

those involved in

their peers in sports

or spending time together

Round it up

A brief recap of City Council action on Monday, June 3

• The council approved a resolution honoring

account clerk Laronda Haines, who retired May 23

after 23 years of service. Her service highlights

include processing of more than 290,000 utility

bills and supporting the implementation and

maintenance of the city’s water meter monitoring,

among other contributions.

• The mayor proclaimed Aug. 7 as Lake Forest

Day, with entertainment and appropriate exercises

provided by the McKinlock Post 264 of the

American Legion.

• The council approved the mayor’s appointment of

John Anderson to the cemetery commission.

extensive data-gathering

and community outreach

that included public workshops,

focus groups and

surveys with more than

740 residents.

“Throughout that process,

we realized and acknowledged

that this was

going to be a public-private

partnership moving

forward — helping when

we can from the city,” Goshgarian

said. “But this had

to come from the residents

in order to be supported by

the residents, and they will

be looking for that help.”

Moving forward, the

plan will act as a living

document that will be updated

regularly with input

from the community, according

to Joe Mobile,

the superintendent for the

city’s parks and recreation

department.

at dances.

“Although so different,

we are able to accomplish

so much and go out and do

all these different things to

perfection because of the

foundation we have built at

Lake Forest High School.”

As for the costs associated

with the plan, Mobile

said the department will

come before the council

for all necessary approvals.

“I don’t have a ballpark

figure,” Mobile said.

“We didn’t really talk dollars

and cents through the

plan.”

Later in the meeting, the

council also unanimously

voted to rescind its approval

of a first amendment

to the restated agreement

relating to the Gorton

property.

Lake Forest city attorney

Julie Tappendorf advised

the council to give city staff

more time to put together

a revised agreement that

would incorporate suggested

changes discussed

during and after the May

20 council meeting.

O’Keane said when describing

his class as a whole.

Class valedictorian Ryan

Eleveld and salutatorian

Nina Montalbano were recognized

for their achievements

at the LFHS honors

night on May 30.

Woodlands Academy graduates 27 ‘supportive’ students

Alyssa Groh, Editor

While the Woodlands

Academy graduating class

of 2019 is considerably

smaller than other high

schools along the North

Shore, the students are

determined to go out into

the world and make a difference.

After four years at

Woodlands Academy of

the Sacred Heart, 27 graduating

seniors received

their diplomas during an

intimate graduation ceremony

Thursday, June 6,

in the school’s chapel.

The graduating class entered

the chapel donning

white cap and gowns, each

carrying a bouquet of red

roses, per tradition at the

all-girls school.

Peter Cashman, a history

and social science teacher

at the school and senior

advisor, was chosen by the

students to give a welcome

speech at the ceremony.

“I have watched these

women grow from timid

and silent freshmen to seniors,

who at times, have

all too many opinions and

the confidence to voice

them clearly, distinctly and

forcefully,” Cashman told

the families and friends of

the graduates. “And for all

of that, I would like to say

‘thank you.’ Thank you for

allowing me to be a small

part of your lives for the

last four years. Working

with you, listening to you,

laughing with you, traveling

with you and learning

with you. Watching you

compete, strive, struggle,

cry, succeed and grow has

honestly been a gift.”

He also reminded students

to take in the moment

and cherish it before

life gets too hectic and they

don’t have the opportunity

to take in other life accomplishments

and transitions.

In doing so, he told them

Elise Albertson, of Winnetka, delivers a graduation

speech.

to take in all the good and

the bad times from the last

four years and to take it

with them onto their next

adventure — where ever

that may be.

After the liturgy, graduating

senior, Elise Albertson,

of Winnetka, delivered

her graduation speech.

At Woodlands Academy,

the student graduation

speaker is not always the

valedictorian as the speaker

is chosen by the students —

this year was different as

Albertson was also the class

valedictorian. She was also

named Woodlands Academy’s

Athlete of the Year

as she qualified for the state

tournament her junior and

senior years and was the

captain of the tennis team

this year. She also played

basketball and soccer at

Woodlands Academy.

Albertson is the third

generation of women in her

family to attend Woodlands

Academy. She will attend

University of Illinois at

Urbana-Champaign in the

fall.

At the beginning of her

speech, Albertson thanked

the faculty for their support

over the years.

“We’ve learned so much

from the teachers here, in

and outside of the classroom,”

Albertson said.

“You’ve been our role

models, our mentors,

coaches, chaperones and

our friends.”

She went on to extend

words of encouragement

to her fellow classmates as

they move on to their next

adventures.

“As we look back on our

experience here, it is clear

how much this place truly

transformed us and connected

us with others,” Albertson

said.

“...Leaving the safety

of Woodlands for our next

adventure can seem really

daunting, but we’ve been

preparing for this all along.

In this safe, welcoming

community, we’ve learned

how to take chances, and

make mistakes and try

new things. Woodlands has

been offering us little opportunities

to take risks all

along, and I believe this is

what really inspired the

most growth in all of us.”

Meg Steele, the head of

school, credited the small,

but mighty class on their

ability to work together and

support one another.

“They are a very smart,

active and cohesive class,”

Steele told The Leader. “It

has been a nice balance of

the students striving for

things and being supportive

of one another.”

The Siebert family, Lake

He was found in

Kenosha in an

abandoned home at

about three weeks old,

in the middle of winter.

He now lives in Lake

Bluff with his big sister Inka, who was also adopted.

This picture was taken while he was waiting to play

one of his favorite games, chasing the little red

light! He enjoys looking out the window from the

back of the couch, watching the birds, squirrels,

and chipmunks. He also enjoys hanging out in the

basement, stalking spiders and crickets!

In an intimate graduation

ceremony in the formal

gardens of Lake Forest

Academy, 109 students

from all over the world

crossed the stage to receive

diplomas Saturday,

June 1.

John Strudwick, the

head of school, delivered

a speech during the graduation

ceremony offering

some words of encouragement.

During his speech,

Strudwick asked students

to focus on some of the

challenges their generation

is currently facing.

Strudwick also spoke

about what makes the

Class of 2019 unique.

“This class is academically

talented and is a diverse

class,” Strudwick

told The Leader. “They are

very talented and are going

off to great schools. This

is certainly a class that is

committed to service.”

Century Media

Each year the graduating

class at Lake Forest

Academy work together to

raise money for a project

they identify. Typically,

the seniors, led by the

student council and class

president, will raise money

in a variety of ways.

In the past, seniors

have raised money for

things such as school improvement

projects.

This year’s class however,

chose to raise money

to create a scholarship

fund. Through their fundraising

efforts, the students

raised $25,000 for the

scholarship fund — which

was matched by an alum

to create a grand total of

$50,000.

“I think it is quite meaningful

the scholarship fund

got matched by an alum,”

Strudwick said. “This is

the first time we have seen

a graduating class establish

an endowed fund. We

all hope they will add to it

over the coming decades

as alumni and the fund

will continue to grow into

something more meaningful.”

Head of School John Strudwick addresses the Class of

2019.

Tyler Medvec, of Lake Forest, the class president, delivers

his graduation speech.

The class of 2019 proceeds to their seats at the graduation

ceremony.

Father’s Day Photo Contest

Candid photo of bonding wins Father’s Day contest

Alyssa Groh, Editor

A single photo has the

ability to tell multiple stories.

Just from looking a

photo we can interpret the

bond of those in the photo,

what is happening in the

photo and we can also

feel a variety of emotions

looking at a photo.

Because photos have

the ability to spread messages

and emotions, The

Lake Forest Leader holds

an annual Father’s Day

Photo contest to help show

the bond between a father

and his children.

A few weeks ago, The

Leader asked residents

to submit photos for its

Carter Horan submitted

this photo of his dad

along with his siblings at

the Eiffel Tower.

Father’s Day Contest for

a chance to win a special

prize just in time for dad’s

big day.

This year we had a series

of submissions that

all showed the incredible

bond local father’s have

with their children.

Unfortunately we can

only pick one winner.

This year’s winner is

Kevin Weinstein, of Lake

Bluff. His children, Tallulah

and Jude, submitted a

photo of the trio jamming

out to ukuleles.

Weinstein will receive a

gift card from The Daily

Grind in Lake Forest. The

Leader thanks The Daily

Grind for its generous donation.

THE WINNETKA CURRENT

Former NSCDS student

allegedly sexually abused

by volunteer

A former female North

Shore Country Day

School student reported

on social media that she

was emotionally and sexually

abused by a volunteer

while a student at the

Winnetka school, according

to an email sent Tuesday,

June 4, by NSCDS

Head of School Tom

Flemma.

The woman alleged the

incident occurred while

she was an Upper School

student more than 10

years ago and levied the

accusation against “someone

who was volunteering

at the school for a short

period of time,” Flemma’s

email says.

It is not clear if the alleged

abuse happened on

school property, and The

Current was unable to

immediately locate the

aforementioned social

media post.

“As you can imagine,

we are shocked and saddened

by this report,”

reads Flemma’s email,

also signed by Molly Shotwell

Oelerich, NSCDS

Board of Trustees chairperson.

“This is a letter we

hoped never to write,”

it continues. “We care

deeply about and remain

committed to the wellbeing

of all North Shore

students past and present.

As we work to understand

and respond to unfortunate

circumstances, we

will continue to communicate

with the North

Shore community.”

The school’s spokesperson

Tura Cottingham

said there is no additional

information to share as of

press time.

In response to the former

student’s accusation,

NSCDS has informed Illinois

Department of Children

and Family Services.

Dr. Chad Prodromos has

established a sterling

reputation for outstanding

surgical care, but

avoids recommending

surgery whenever he can

for the good of his

patients.

Dr. Prodromos believes

in limited treatment,

doing only what needs to

be done to heal the body,

limit pain and improve

mobility. Eighty percent

of his eligible patients

avoid joint replacement

and other surgeries.

“I specialize in promoting

healing rather than

replacing damaged joints

— treating the cause not

just the symptoms,” Dr.

Prodromos said.

Dr. Prodromos’ effectiveness

of care in and

out of the operating room

led to North Shore

residents naming him the

Best orthopaedic in 22nd

SPOTLIGHT

Best Orthopaedic: Dr. Chad Prodromos, Illinois Sports

Medicine and Orthopaedic Centers

Century Media’s annual

North Shore Choice

Awards.

Earning degrees from

Princeton University

(undergrad) and Johns

Hopkins (M.D.), Dr.

Prodromos was a

resident at Rush Medical

Center before completing

an orthopaedic and

sports medicine fellowship

at Harvard Med/Mass

General Hospital.

Board certified in orthopaedic

surgery and

regenerative medicine,

Dr. Prodromos is editor in

chief of “The Anterior

Cruciate Ligament,

Reconstruction and Basic

Science”; is the medical

director of the foundation

for Orthopaedics and

Regenerative Medicine;

was assistant professor

of orthopaedics for 27

years at Rush University;

and is the president of

the Illinois Sportsmedicine

and Orthopaedic

centers.

Dr. Prodromos and the

centers specialize in

numerous procedures,

including:

• Cutting-edge stem-cell

and plasma-rich platelet

(PRP) treatments for

arthritis and orthopaedic

disorders, and

• Rotator cuff, shoulder,

knee cartilage and ACL

surgeries, when they

are required.

Dr. Prodromos’ clinic is

one of the few that

performs advanced stem

cell treatments using

adipose tissue and bone

marrow. The in-office

treatments are safe,

quick and relatively

painless.

Dr. Prodromos also

believes in a holistic

approach, harnessing

and augmenting your

body’s ability to heal itself

instead of using cortisone

or drugs.

You can get more information

in the centers’

free newsletter, “Advances

in Regenerative Medicine,”

surgery, we would be

happy to tell you what we

can offer.”

From the Editor

Impressive work

at Pitch Night

Alyssa Groh

alyssa@lakeforestleader.com

For the first time since

being Editor of The

Lake Forest Leader,

I was able to personally attend

the Lake Forest High

School Business Incubator

Pitch Night.

And boy was I happy I

was able to go.

The presentations were

nothing short of incredible,

but I personally enjoyed

seeing what the students at

LFHS were able to accomplish

in nine months.

In nine short months,

students were not only able

to think of a new business

idea, but a few of them

were able to fully develop

it, create prototypes and

test their products.

But above that, four

groups got on stage in front

of investors and were able

to ask for money, while

three of them secured funding.

By the end of the night

I was completely blown

away by their impressive,

informative and professional

pitches. They sure

did know their stuff and

you could tell they worked

hard on it.

Hats off to all Business

Incubator students, teachers

and mentors that have

put their time and effort

into this event.

These students are learning

skills in this class that

will benefit them for years

to come.

A Look Into History

Donald Roderick

McLennan was

born in 1873 in

Minnesota. Donald was

the oldest of five children

born to William McLennan

and Julia MacLeod.

In 1905 Donald cofounded

his own insurance

brokerage firm

in Chicago along with

partner Henry Marsh.

Donald went so far as

to ride the rail lines he

insured to assess risk

and price accordingly.

Marsh and McLennan

is a multi-billion dollar

business which survives

to this day.

In 1906 Donald and

Katherine Noyes were

married. Katherine was

born in Milwaukee in

1883. The young couple

initially made their home

in Chicago.

In 1912 they built a

large home at 1345 Lake

Road in Lake Forest

designed by Howard Van

Investors distribute $25K at LFHS Pitch Night

Alyssa Groh, Editor

In a Shark Tank-style

format, four groups of students

hit the stage on June

3 to give investors their

best pitches in hopes they

would receive money to

start up their businesses.

While each group worked

hard at developing their

business and practicing

their pitches, money was

not a guarantee. It was up

to the investors to decide if

the businesses were viable

and worthy of their money.

And after hours of pitching

their ideas to investors,

the Lake Forest High

School Foundation awarded

$10,000, while other

investors gave out $15,000,

for a grand total of $25,000

spread throughout three of

the four groups.

For nine months, juniors

at Lake Forest High School

who are enrolled in the

Business Incubator class,

develop a new business

idea and work on creating

a business model — with

the help of a volunteer professional

mentor from the

community.

And in just nine months,

many groups have tested

products they are ready to

pitch to investors.

Only four of the teams

make it to Pitch Night,

and this year, only three

of the four teams received

funding.

The winner of the Foundation

Cup was Dignified

Designs, which was

awarded $13,500. The

investors gave $6,000.

team was composed of

with mentor Stuart Scholly.

IN MEMORIAM

Gronau remembered for service to Lake Bluff

Alan P. Henry

Freelance Reporter

Mr. Lake Bluff.

The Mayor of Scranton

Avenue. Big Red.

Kurt Gronau was

all of those and more

— a big personality

with a kind heart, a Gronau

can-do attitude, and a

lights out golf gamer who poured

his all into his community, his

church and the family he loved.

Gronau died May 28, at age

82. Nearly 300 friends and family

gathered to celebrate his life

and return some of that affection

Saturday, June 8, at First Presbyterian

Church in Lake Forest. Gronau

was a 42-year member of the

church and he served as a Deacon

and volunteer through PADS of

Lake County.

“Kurt felt blessed to be a part of

the Lake Bluff community,” said

Rev. Kristie Finley, remarking that

in every aspect of his life, Gronau

was a loving and welcoming

person.

Gronau was born in Northbrook

in the teeth of the Depression

and learned independence

early on. When he was eight, his

father handed him a fishing pole

and stuck a tag with his name

and destination on his shirt, then

put him on a train to Milwaukee.

After switching to another train,

he’d meet up for a visit with his

grandparents.

Gronau attended a one room

schoolhouse in Northbrook

through eighth grade. In 1955,

he was in the second graduating

class of Glenbrook High School.

After graduating from Bradley

University he served in the Army

Reserves.

Embarking on a career in insurance,

he lived and worked in

Los Angeles, San Francisco and

New York City. In 1977, he returned

to the North Shore, where

he started his own insurance business

and became actively involved

in the Lake Bluff/Lake Forest

communities.

For the past 18 years, Gronau

has stood alongside his wife, Peg,

as owners of Peg Ann Kompany in

downtown Lake Bluff.

“Each time you walked into the

store you were greeted as if you

were family,” said Rev. Finley.

“Both Peg and Kurt were right

there. I always felt like I was their

most valued costumer.’’

Gronau loved working at the

store, said his daughter Gretchen

Gronau Wooldridge.

“It was right in the center of

town where he could keep an eye

on everything and everyone.”

Gronau was a long time member

of the Lions Club and the Lake

Forest/Lake Bluff Chamber of

Commerce.

Spurred on by his love of Lake

Bluff and the game of golf, he

joined the Lake Bluff Park District

Board of Commissioners in 1997

and served a record 20 years.

During his tenure, he helped push

through the first renovation of the

golf clubhouse, construction of

the Recreation Center, beach improvements,

driving range, irrigation

system, reconstruction of the

tot pool and more.

Gronau’s devotion to the game

of golf was addressed by many

speakers. Some weeks he would

play as many as ten courses. In

2018, he shot his second hole-inone.

Most impressively, he shot

his age four times between the

ages of 74 and 79, a feat very rare

in golf.

Longtime friend and golfing

buddy Peter Capps recounted their

last round together, at the exclusive

San Francisco Golf Club.

“We were walking down the

18th fairway arm in arm and saying

it doesn’t get any better than

this.”

Another close friend and fellow

golfer Greg Knoke read aloud

some of their phone text messages,

including the last one on May 1.

“That was a special day in my

life,” Knoke told the memorial

service attendees. “That was the

last day I got to smoke a cigar with

Kurt.”

Gronau’s love for Lake Bluff

was particularly evident every

July 4th, when he would be busy

making bloody Mary’s and hosting

hundreds friends and neighbors

as they enjoyed the parade.

“He took so much pride in being

on the parade route,” said

his daughter Melanie Specketer

Walsh.

By all accounts, Gronau lived

life to the fullest, and that included

sailing, hunting, fishing, canoeing,

cooking, music, and flowers.

“He loved to go outside and

watch a good storm,” Gronau

Wooldridge said.

But as much as he loved all of

those, his four children, eleven

grandchildren and wife came first.

“My dad was so proud of all

four of his kids and lived vicariously

through each of us,” said

Gronau Wooldridge. During their

school years, “he was the biggest

fan at every event,” she said.

Daughter Jacki Gronau Michael

recited some of the life lessons her

father imparted.

“Be nice to everyone,” “have ‘a

guy’ for everything,” and “live life

to the fullest.”

“He pretty much had a smile

on his face all the time,” she said.

“And at the end of every phone

call he said ‘I love you.’”

Then there was Peg, his wife of

36 years.

“He just loved her so much,”

said close friend Dave Nash. He

told the story of how Gronau had

recently turned to his wife and said,

“I love you even more today than I

did yesterday.”

Kurt Gronau is survived by his

wife, Peg (Coleman), four children,

and eleven grandchildren:

Gretchen (Michael) Wooldridge

(Merritt and Calvin) of Morton

Grove, IL, Jacki (Timothy) Michael

(Harley and Sloan) of Lake

Bluff, Rodd (Sarah) Specketer

(Sadie, James, Miles, Elizabeth,

and Wells) of Lake Bluff, and

Melanie (Sean) Walsh (Molly and

Jack) of Lake Forest, his two sisters,

Carol (Harvey) Applegate of

Omaha, NE, and Judy Duszak of

Libertyville, IL, and nieces Michelle

Blanchard, Kim Bezek, and

nephew, Chris Duszak. He was

preceded in death by his parents.

James Simmen

James Mortimer

Simmen, of Lake

Forest, formerly of

Gurnee, died on May 4, with family

by his side. He was born Aug.

24, 1927 in Jersey

City, New Jersey, to

George and Maree

(Rankin) Simmen. He

served as a sargeant in

the U.S. Army from

1944 to 1952 and was

stationed in occupied

Simmen

Japan. He studied mechanical and

electrical engineering at Cornell

University, received his Bachelor

of Arts from the Medill School of

Journalism at Northwestern University,

and did graduate work under

Mies van der Rohe at Illinois

Institute of Technology.

He founded Photo Image Company,

the first photo-typesetting

firm in Chicago, in 1962. He was

an avid woodworker and craftsman,

a talented musician and

chef, and an active member of the

First Presbyterian Church of Lake

Forest.

Simmen was the husband of Marjorie

(Swansen) Simmen, whom he

married in 2013. Previously he was

married to Betty (Freeman) Simmen

for 58 years until her passing

in 2009. He was the loving

father of Robin Simmen (Michael

Conway), Sheryl Simmen (Dan

Ryan), Kimberly Wolf (Chris),

Russell Swansen (Susan), and Eric

Swansen (Shelley); grandfather

of Alexandra Leuenberger (Dan),

Austin, Morgan Shannon (Erik),

Sheridan, Maggie, and Russell;

great-grandfather of Theodor; preceded

in death by his parents and

son-in-law, Michael.

Mercado’s slow, rustic cooking speeds

up attraction to new restaurant

Jason Addy

Contributing Editor

After decades in the Chicago

restaurant industry,

Richard Vallejo and chef

Yanni Sanchez teamed up

to launch Mercado Cocina

and Cantina in Glenview,

and it has been an instant

hit for the community.

Vallejo, co-owner and

operator of Mercado,

said he and Sanchez were

looking for a place in the

North Shore to start their

own modern Mexican

restaurant and considered

locations in Wilmette and

Evanston before landing at

2300 Lehigh Ave.

Having opened at the

end of April, Vallejo said

he “couldn’t be happier”

with the reception from

the community in the

restaurant’s first weeks.

“It seems like Glenview’s

been pretty thirsty

for something like this.

We’re getting great feedback.

... They’re happy

we’re here,” Vallejo said,

describing the restaurant’s

“chef-driven” concept as

a showcase of traditional

Mexican and global ingredients

that Sanchez fuses

using old-fashioned, rustic

Mexican and French

cooking techniques.

Sanchez and her team

at Mercado make all their

dishes using the freshest

ingredients possible, and

everything is made inhouse.

Sanchez also utilizes

rustic cooking techniques

that may take longer but

are worth the extra time,

Vallejo said.

“You can taste the depth

of flavor when you kind

of slow things down and

do them the right way. It

really develops the flavor

Mercado Cocina and Cantina’s Fabianita’s flautas ($10),

creme fraiche, is quickly becoming a fan-favorite dish

at the new Glenview restaurant. Martin Carlino/22nd

and enhances the items,”

Vallejo said.

While Mercado offers

traditional Mexican

staples like tacos, burritos

and enchiladas, Vallejo

and Sanchez are proud to

be introducing local diners

to lesser-known regional

Mexican cuisines and

cooking techniques.

A group of 22nd Century

Media editors stopped

by Mercado to check out

Glenview’s newest restaurant

and sample some of

the items on the menu.

We started with several

drinks, including Mercado’s

classic margarita

and guava margarita. The

classic, “clean, refreshing”

margarita is the restaurant’s

top seller, but

the guava isn’t far behind,

Vallejo said.

The first dish out of the

kitchen was the guacamole

burrata ($15). The plate

features avocado mixed

with basil, jalapenos, pickled

onions and cherry tomatoes

and comes served

with burrata cheese and

bread.

Next was the duck

bunuelos ($11), which are

crispy dumplings filled

topped with figs and queso

Then came Fabianita’s

flautas ($10), a dish Vallejo

said has become one of the

restaurant’s most-ordered

appetizers.

After the flautas, Vallejo

served up a plate featuring

Mercado’s three taco

options. The plate of three

tacos ($10) included a

chicken al pastor taco with

grilled pineapple, pickled

rhubarb and guajillo

chilis; a chochinita pibil

taco with achiote-braised

pork and pickled onions;

and a crispy fish taco with

tilapia, chipotle aioli and

apple-fennel slaw.

said he was moved into

an assisted living facility

and soon after, he began

to show signs that he felt

like he “lost his dignity and

independence.”

“That’s where Dignified

Designs comes in,”

teammate Castaneda said.

“Dignified Designs helps

people help themselves by

modifying the clothing of

low-mobility and dementia

patients with adaptable

features such as magnetic

buttons and elastic waist

bands.”

But that is not all.

As an added bonus, Dignified

Designs also offers a

GPS tracker that can connect

to family members’

cellphones through an app.

If a patient gets out of a

specified zone set by the

family, they are notified

and can easily find their

loved ones.

The best pitch award and

$4,500, all from outside

investors, was given to the

Solis UVS Purifications

team comprised of Dylan

Cofer, Jeremy Hughes,

Ally Page, Chase Rupprecht

and mentor Ross

Chaifetz.

Solis designed a twostep

water bottle system

that utilizes UVC light to

purify water that is free

from bacteria, viruses or

sediments.

The final recipient of

$7,000 at Pitch Night was

Pure Gear, comprised of

Sarah Borland, Josh Cha,

Hunter Dee, Luke Paschke

and Henry Ridgway and

mentor Nicole Mowad-

Nassar. The Lake Forest

High School Foundation

awarded $2,500 while outside

investors gave $4,500.

Pure Gear, made up of all

student-athletes at LFHS,

helps diminish bad odors

from athletic gear while

also getting rid of bacteria.

Pure Gear has developed

a device that uses

revolutionary UL Certified

Infrared film technology

to eliminate the odor and

dangerous bacteria found

in sports equipment. The

group suggests placing

sports equipment in the

device for approximately 1

hour to guarantee the job is

finished.

The final group at Pitch

Night, Heaven N’ Heels,

did not receive funding,

but still delivered an entertaining

speech full of

energy.

Heaven N’ Heels, comprised

of Julia Hender,

Konrad Ziaja, Lino Caputo

and Ella Witmer, worked

hard to develop a prototype

shoe with an interchangeable

heel, allowing for both

a fashionable and comfortable

shoe option for women.

The shoe can easily be

changed from a heel into a

flat and vice versa.

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Arianne Berner

Berner is a sophomore

catcher on the Woodlands

Academy softball team.

How did you get

started playing

softball?

I started playing softball

in sixth grade. My brother

played baseball and he

always used to hit in our

backyard. One day I was

talking with my dad and

he asked me if I wanted to

try hitting. I started hitting,

and I figured why not play

some softball?

What’s your favorite

part of playing

softball?

I really enjoy hitting the

ball, there’s a thrill you get

to hitting it. It’s just really

fun to play on teams, you

can work with people and

you can really bond with

your team.

What’s the most

challenging part of

playing softball?

Probably putting in all

the practice and effort. I

love playing the games,

but sometimes I struggle to

find time to actually work

on skills and build them

up.

What’s the best

coaching advice you’ve

ever gotten?

Probably just to do what

you think is right. A lot of

times we’ll work on situations

in practice and we

got things figured out, but

sometimes they don’t go

as planned. One of my

coaches did tell me that

it’s important to just do

whatever you think is right

in the moment and don’t

worry about making mistakes.

Do you have any

pre-game rituals or

superstitions?

One thing I like to do because

I’m a catcher, I like

to put my hands in the dirt

so that I feel like I’m ready

to do anything I need to do

to stop the ball.

If you could play

another sport besides

softball, what would

it be?

I actually do play volleyball

at Woodlands, and

I did try basketball one

year.

What’s your favorite

place to eat?

I really like Wingstop

because I love wings,

they’re fantastic, and you

can watch sports while

you eat.

Who is your favorite

athlete?

Someone I’ve always

looked up to is Bethany

Hamilton, she’s the professional

surfer who lost her

arm during the shark attack.

I think she’s such an

inspiring figure and a role

model, she’s really good at

what she does.

photo Submitted

If you could travel

anywhere in the

world, where would

you go?

I’d probably want to go

back to Hawaii, I like it

there because it’s so warm,

and you can swim in all of

the different beaches. The

people there are so friendly

and nice, it’s just a nice

place to be.

If you could have one

superpower, what

would it be?

I’ve always liked the

Flash, I’d probably want

super speed, I think it’d

fun to run really fast. People

wouldn’t be able to

catch you.

Boys Volleyball

Welcome to 22nd Century media’s All-Area team: Team 22. Thanks to help from area coaches and the

eyes of 22nd Century Medis staff, the best players were selected from six high schools — Glenbrook North

(GBN), Glenbrook South (GBS), Highland Park (HP), Lake Forest (LF), Loyola Academy (LA) and New Trier

(NT) — in our coverage area.

First Team

OUTSIDE HITTER

Jack Howard, LA senior

• 406 kills, 130 digs; The

Penn State signee ended his

career with 1,154 kills, ranking

The Chicago Catholic League

All-Conference honoree helped

Loyola to the sectional final.

OUTSIDE HITTER

Jack Shampine, GBS senior

Scouts bass fishing team grows under first-year coach

Nick Frazier, Sports Editor

Bass fishing isn’t the

most popular after-school

activity at Lake Forest

High School, but to the

ones who love the sport,

that doesn’t matter.

The team competed

in four tournaments this

spring under first-year

coach Joe Busse. A former

volleyball assistant coach

and current football assistant,

Busse took over the

bass fishing club after taking

time away from coaching

to focus on his family.

“My wife and I had a

child so I stepped away

from volleyball, then this

[position] opened up a

year after my baby was

born,” Busse said. “It’s not

an everyday type of deal, I

love fishing, so I took over

NORTH SHORE

just this year.”

The LFHS bass fishing

team started in 2012 under

current school assistant director

John Maher. With so

many other spring sports

and activities ongoing,

the participant numbers

have never been massive,

though Busse notes that a

lot of guys are interested.

It’s just that some wouldbe

fishers had other sports

to commit to first.

“Who could come out

fishing all depended not on

their other sports,” Busse

said. “If a kid had lacrosse,

I told him he couldn’t miss

practice or a game for a

tournament, he committed

to that team. If it worked

out, it worked out, and

it ended up working out

pretty good this year.”

FIND THE VARSITY: NORTH SHORE ON

SOUNDCLOUD, ITUNES OR LAKEFORESTLEADER.COM/SPORTS

A 22ND CENTURY MEDIA PRODUCTION

Seven different kids participated

in a bass fishing

tournament this spring.

The highlight of the season

was Sam Marquart catching

a 3.6 pound bass in the

Cahin O’Lakes North sectional

on May 6. The bass

was the second-biggest

fish caught at the meet.

Other individuals who had

solid seasons were Henry

Carrabine, Joe Strauss and

Logan Gleeson.

The unpredictable winter

and Busse’s commitments

to the football team

meant the team got a late

start, but the head coach

still says the season was a

success.

“It went a lot better than

I thought,” Busse said. “It

worked out really great,

my main goal was to get

kids on the boat, we were

able to get probably seven

different kids on the boat

fishing, which was really

cool. A lot of them really

just appreciated going and

learning how to hitch the

boat up, unhitch the boat,

load the boat in and just

talk fishing.”

During the season, the

bass fishing team met on

Wednesdays after school

to figure out who could

participate in the upcoming

tournament. A few

days before the meet, the

fishers and Coach Busse

would go over the itinerary

for the tournament.

“We tried to get pretty

in-depth with it, a lot of

the kids, they like the sport

fishing, but they don’t

necessarily go bass fishing

with their folks all that

much,” Busse said. “A lot

of their fishing is pondhopping

and fishing from

the shore, so it’s a totally

different ballgame.”

With the spring season

now in the books, the bass

fishing team at Lake Forest

can only get better from

here. Busse said a parent

recently donated a bass

fishing boat that can help

the team practice in the

offseason.

Now a year into coaching

the club, Busse believes

that attendance numbers at

the Wednesday meetings

will keep growing.

“I definitely do,” Busse

said. “I know there’s a lot

of students that are really

interested in joining next

year, I’m going to try and

continue to do it this summer.

I’d like to get the kids

out there this summer and

get as many kids on the

boat as possible and expose

them to fishing and

that hobby.”

Boys volleyball Coach of the Year

Haak’s team culture helps Trevians shine

Michael Wojtychiw

Contributing Sports Editor

Every season, every

year, every team is different.

The players, the

formations, maybe even

the plays. But for New

Trier boys volleyball, the

one thing that’s stayed

the same is the coaching

staff and its coaching techniques/methods.

“I think our coaching

style as far as our executions

for how kids act in

our program and how they

work and their level of

commitment, that never

changes,” Trevians coach

Sue Ellen Haak said. “The

way we treat our players,

we have kind of a calm,

confident instructional

style. They know what to

expect from us emotionally

and I don’t think they’re

surprised by us and that

helps create a good learning

environment. So that

stuff never changes.

“We definitely change

our strategies and the

things that we’re going to

practice and which coach

is going to take on which

elements of the game

based on where we see areas

of need for that team.

So we do definitely change

it up. I’m actually not a

creature of habit. I get

bored with routine. We do,

which is probably unlike

most coaches, but we do

definitely change up our

practices, the things we

emphasize strategically.

New Trier’s Sue Ellen Haak is 22nd Century Media’s

2019 Boys Volleyball Coach of the Year. 22nd Century

Media File Photo

And we kind of mentor our

players. But our personality,

style and environment

doesn’t change.”

The consistency is what

helped the Trevians win

their sixth consecutive sectional

this year and is what

also helped Haak earn

22nd Century Media’s

Boys Volleyball Coach of

the Year award.

Like most high school

teams and programs, the

Trevians are prone to losing

a lot of kids to graduation

every season. Even

this year, the team lost key

pieces all over the court,

including middle hitters

James Snyder and Joe

D’Attomo. Yet the team

took third place, bettering

its fourth-place finish last

season and earning its best

finish since it was state

runner-up in 2016.

“We keep big teams and

we are a big school. We

tend to have a lot of great

athletes,” Haak said. “And

we like to try at our lower

levels to develop all kids,

give all kids lots of playing

time, regardless of their

starting point, because we

know some kids develop

later and whatnot. My

lower level, the coaches

do a great job just getting

kids ready for varsity. So

even if they weren’t a huge

player for us junior year,

maybe they even played

on JV junior year, senior

year they’re ready to go

strong and confident. One

thing about our boys and

our coaching staff, we believe

that we have a chance

to beat every team and so

we instill that in them and

I think that our teams tend

to be very confident.”

This season started off

a little rocky for the Trevians

in that many of their

matches went three sets,

with not many sweeps.

Boys Volleyball Player of the Year

Howard’s newfound

confidence leads to success

Michael Wojtychiw

Contributing Sports Editor

Loyola has had a number

of successful outside

hitters in its boys volleyball

history.

David Wieczorek and

Adam Toren are both top

15 all-time in career kills

in the state of Illinois.

Well they’re joined now

by recent Loyola graduate

Jack Howard, who

had more than 400 kills

this season en route to

his fourth all-conference

honor and finished his

career with 1,154 career

kills, which places his 14th

all-time in Illinois. For his

great season, Howard was

named 22nd Century Media’s

Player of the Year.

Joining a list that includes

college All-Americans

and former Olympians

is something that

Howard isn’t taking lightly.

“It’s a great feeling seeing

it on there but it’s just

indicative that I still have a

lot of work to go,” Howard

said. “If I’m going to end

up as collegiately successful

as these players, they

were great high school

players, but that’s got totranslate

on to the next

level.”

Howard made the varsity

squad as a freshman, but

for someone who ended

up being successful during

his tenure, it wasn’t always

that way.

In fact, it was quite the

opposite.

“I walked on the courts

absolutely petrified. I was

so scared as a freshman,

I basically didn’t talk for

the whole first month,”

he said. “I actually got the

team in trouble a couple

of times because I didn’t

communicate. So it was

over the course of really

getting into the gameplay

because we have those

three weeks at the beginning

of the season just

with our team practicing

all the time.

“Once we really started

to loosen up and I was

pretty solidly on the starting

lineup ...”
