Block party gives residents taste of summer

Neil Milbert

Freelance Reporter

By happy coincidence,

the 14th annual St. Norbert

Block Party on Saturday,

June 8, coincided with the

120th anniversary of the

founding of the parish.

That old small-town

newspaper cliché “… and a

good time was had by all”

applies here.

The party began at 3 p.m.

and continued until 11 p.m.

As always, there was music,

food and drinks and activities

galore for the kids.

Kathy McMahon, who

has served as the event’s

co-chairman, along with

Vince Daly, since its inception,

reminisced how it all

got started.

“A bunch of us girls

would go to Chicago every

year for the Sheffield Garden

Walk and the Old Town

Art Fair and we loved it so

much we thought we’d

bring something like it to

the suburbs and hold it in

Northbrook,” she recalled.

“It just took off.”

McMahon said this

was her last year as

co-chairman.

“But don’t say I’m retiring,”

she hastened to add.

“No one actually retires;

you just change your role.”

“We actually have 22

co-chairs,” McMahon continued,

citing the contributions

of her nearby colleagues

Kristine Hillman,

Kanda McMullen, Pam

Berg and the other volunteers

who serve as committee

chairmen. “Everybody

knows what to do and does

it.”

Berg was in charge of the

annual 5K race at 8 a.m.

that served as the Block

Party’s preface.

“We had about 215 runners

and more than 50 of

Northbrook resident Moorthy Selvaraj (left) and Randy Bobula compete in a Baggo

tournament Saturday, June 8, at the St. Norbert Block Party in Northbrook. Photos by

Susan Chou/22nd Century Media

them were under 14,” she

said. “This year for the first

time a wheelchair race was

part of it.

“We’re donating a portion

of the proceeds from

the race to TotalLink2

Community.”

TotalLink2 Community

had a tent at the Block Party

“We’ve been in existence

for about 10 years,

this is our first time here

and we’re thrilled to be

here,” said Janice Weinstein,

one of the founding

parents of the organization

that connects people with

disabilities to opportunities

in the community through

employment, social connections

and lifelong learning.”

Also making its debut

at the Block Party was

“In Spite of Yourselves,”

a band from Chicago’s

Edgebrook neighborhood.

“We thrilled to be here,”

said Pat Weber, the band’s

acoustic guitarist and harmonica

player, echoing

Weinstein’s words. “We

have a list of 15-16 songs

and we’re all over the map.

Our music probably spans

70 years. We do songs by

Patsy Cline, the Momas

and the Popas, Neil Diamond

and John Denver

for the older crowd; we do

some Irish songs; and we

do some of today’s music.

“One of the coolest

things happened when we

were playing at the Irish-

American Heritage Center

— a couple in their 70s

were sitting there lovin’ our

songs and a little 3-year-old

girl was dancing in front of

them.”

The other bands on

the main stage were Out

of Control and The Ron

Burgundy’s.

Playing on an adjacent

smaller stage were teenage

rock bands from the Northbrook

music school, Bach

to Rock.

“We do lessons and

classes — from early childhood

all the way through

to adults — and we have

rock bands,” said Doug

Barr, the school’s director.

“Last year we had one band

in our school and at this

Block Party. Now, we have

12 bands and five of them

are here.”

Also performing were

students from Northbrook’s

Championship Martial

Arts.

“We’re two minutes up

the road and we’re here

every year,” said Theodore

Creek, who has been a fulltime

instructor at Championship

Martial Arts for 17

years.

For athletes seeking

physical therapy advice for

injury rehabilitation, Athletico

had a tent staffed by

rehab specialists.

And for those interested

in finding ways and means

to exercise their brains,

there was the Mathnasium

total math learning center

tent.

There also were some

party animals on hand, a

goat and a couple of rabbits

who were joined in the

petting zoo by two white

ducks and a big turtle.

One of the kids doing

some serious petting was

5-year-old Jeffrey Ortman.

“I’m a lifelong St. Norbert’s

parishioner and a

member of the St. Norbert’s

School Board,” said

his mother, Kristin Ortman.

Mackenzie Casey, 3, and Madelyn Danielak, 2, both of

Northbrook, strum some notes on their inflatable guitar.

Sienna Wilson and Natalie Mahoney volunteer at the

lemonade stand.

“My husband, Andrew, and

I come here every year.

When we got married we

lived in the city and wanted

to stay in Chicago. We

never thought we’d wind

up in Northbrook. But then

our oldest child, Daniel,

who’s now 9, was on his

way; we bought our house

in 2009; and here we are in

Northbrook.”

Jamie Zimniok and her

husband, Karl, moved to

Northbrook from Evanston

last year, and they too

were making the St. Norbert

Block Party a family

affair. They brought along

their daughters, 1-monthold

Clara and 3-year-old

Charlotte.

“It’s a really nice community

event, seeing all the

kids having fun and bumping

into neighbors,” Jamie

said.

There were plenty of fun

things for kids to choose

from. Among them were a

trampoline, a rubber slide

that was about two stories

high, the Hungry Hippo

bungee grab, bumper cars

and a basketball hoop to

shoot at. If they took a

time out from these activities

they could have their

faces painted and their

caricatures drawn.

No one left the Block

Party hungry or thirsty. On

the menu were hamburgers,

cheeseburgers, veggie

burgers, hot dogs, watermelon,

corn-on-the-cob,

popcorn and ice cream. Included

on the beverage list

were bottled water, soda

pop, lemonade, beer, wine,

vodka and lemonade, vodka

and soda and margaritas.

Staff Report

More than one month ago, we

began accepting entries for our annual

Father’s Day Photo Contest.

As is this case with all of our

contests, we received countless

great entries from Northbrook

residents.

The Tower’s editorial staff once

again had a tough decision on its

hands.

We selected a touching, heartfelt

submission from Northbrook resident

Donna Birren as the winner of

this year’s contest.

The submitted photo and caption

represents a true father-and-son

bond. The following was submitted

along with the winning photo,

which is pictured on this page:

“My husband, Chris Birren,

and our son, Bob Birren, proudly

wearing their Cubs clothing in

April of 2016, ready to start the

baseball season. My husband was

six months into his chemotherapy

treatment for esophageal cancer.

Chris always hoped that ‘this’

would be the magic year. A loyal

Cubs fan, he ‘bled’ Cubbie blue.

His dream came true in November

of 2016: The Cubs win the World

Series!

Chris passed away July 30,

2017. Bob doesn’t have his Dad to

watch Cubs games together, but he

knows his Dad is now the eternal

‘Bleacher Bum.’”

For their winning submission,

the Birren family will receive a

$50 gift card to Northbrook’s Marcello’s.

The Tower would like to

thank Marcello’s once again for

its gracious support sponsoring the

contest.

The Tower would always like to

thank everyone who took the time

to submit their favorite photos with

Dad. We’ve included more of our

favorite submissions on this page.

Just two months after

abruptly announcing its

closure, Highwood’s Lucky

Fish reopened late last

month in its same location

on Sheridan Road.

The reopened Lucky

Fish, which is part of the

Geffen family’s Once Upon

restaurants, now features a

revamped menu and concept,

according to a press

release sent to The Tower.

The restaurants ownership

team, which features

Northbrook resident Steve

Geffen, shifted Lucky Fish’s

traditional sit-down dinner

experience to a new concept

that is based on the style of a

“coastal shrimp shack,” per

After a short closure, Lucky Fish recently reopened

the release. It now features

a menu that the ownership

team describes as “dominated

by shrimp, seafood

and chicken, with a focus on

efficient service and a value

price point.”

“Our goal with the reinvented

Lucky Fish is to offer

the high-quality seafood

that we always have, but to

do it at a price point that is

more accessible to a broader

customer base,” owner Gerry

Geffen said. “The new

menu is well-suited to busy

people on the run, looking

for a lunch alternative to the

standard burger and fries,

while still offering plenty of

great dinner items.”

Lucky Fish will continue

to offer beer and wine

at lunch with its full bar

opening at 4 p.m. daily.

In late 2018, the Geffen

family announced the closure

of its Northbrook location,

which opened in 2017

at 1349 Shermer Road.

NBJH Class of 2019 ready for high school

207 students

graduate

Submitted by Northbrook

School District 28

David Gichner receives the Northbrook Rotary Club

Service Award from Superintendent Dr. Larry Hewitt on

June 4 at the school’s graduation ceremony. Photos

Courtesy of District 28

NBJH graduate Ryan Kreiter address his classmates at

graduation.

On June 4, 207 eighthgrade

students of Northbrook

Junior High walked

across the stage at Glenbrook

North High School,

received their diplomas

and began the next phase

in their life as high school

students.

Perhaps the most momentous

walk across the

stage was for Emily Duff,

who has Cerebral Palsy and

spends most of her time in

a wheelchair. She works

with a physical therapist,

an adaptive P.E. teacher

and private therapist, walking

with a walker or with

crutches three days a week,

and with the help of her

parents on the weekends.

“In sixth grade we started

planning,” Emily said.

And walk she did, to an

auditorium filled with applause

and encouragement.

“Emily walking across

the stage was the culmination

of hard work, goalsetting

and perseverance

over the last three years,”

said Dr. Heather Schultz,

assistant director of student

services for grades 6-8.

Before diplomas were

handed out, four students

were recognized for their

leadership when the Rotary

Volunteer Service Award

and American Legion

Awards were presented.

David Gichner received

the Northbrook Rotary

Volunteer Service Award,

presented by Superintendent

Dr. Larry Hewitt for

extraordinary work in the

spirit of volunteerism and

the Rotary motto, “Service

Above Self.”

Each year, teachers nominate

students for the American

Legion Citizenship

Award for best representing

the character qualities of

courage, honor, leadership,

patriotism, scholarship and

service. Sixteen students

were nominated, and four

students were presented

with awards: Zoey Kenny

and David Gichner received

Distinguished Achievement

awards, and Carly Fernitz

and Jack Gaffney received

Honorable Mention awards.

Student speakers are also

selected by teachers based

on essays they submit. Felicia

Pace reflected on the

class’s experience over the

last three years and making

lifelong memories from

day one.

“On August 23, 2016,

you walked in and today

you walk out, having

grown, having developed,

and having made memories

that will last you for a

lifetime. And those eighthgraders

who once seemed

so tall? We don’t seem so

tall anymore.”

Ryan Kreiter asked his

classmates to draw on the

strength and courage that

transformed them from

anxious, excited and terrified

sixth-graders to

confident eighth-graders.

“When going into high

school, we all need to embrace

our differences and

make them the first thing

that steps into those big

doors before we do,” he

said. “It’s going to be our

individuality that will be

our key to success.”

In addressing the graduates

Hewitt said, ”You will

have all kinds of wonderful

clouds in your life and

when the occasional storm

cloud comes, remember

– look for the silver lining

and you’ll be better

because of it.”

NBJH Principal Dr.

Scott Meek said in presenting

the class of 2019, “The

challenge I pose to you is

this: Don’t settle for anything

less than your best

effort. Surround yourself

with people who believe

in you ... and believe in

yourself ... Just remember

that the small sacrifices

you make along your journey

lead to much larger

rewards in the end.”

St. Norbert School celebrates 2019 eighth-grade class

Submitted by St. Norbert

St. Norbert School welcomed

16 students into

its alumni community on

June 2. Graduates were

joined by faculty, family

and friends for a graduation

ceremony that was

preceded by a mass with

Fr. Bob Heinz and Fr. Dan

Folwaczny, alongside Fr.

Vince Costello from Holy

Cross Parish.

Principal Steve Schacherer

spoke to the graduates

in a heartfelt speech that

talked about the journey

the students have been

on this school year. In his

opening he said, “Years

from now, people might

refer to the St. Norbert

School graduating class

of 2019 as the class that

changed everything. Because

of your commitment

to Catholic education, and

your willingness to endure

many adjustments and alterations,

our school has a

bright future anchored by

faith filled, optimistic and

energetic families.”

At the beginning of this

school year, St. Norbert

School welcomed into

the community forty-two

students from Holy Cross

School in Deerfield.

At the same time, Steve

Schacherer became the

new principal after spending

five years working in

North Park University’s

School of Education and

nine years as an administrator

in Winnetka Public

Schools.

This was a significant

amount of change for the

graduating class as two

school cultures came together

as one under new

leadership. But this class

took it in stride and demonstrated

the resilience,

leadership and optimism

needed for the school to

become stronger together.

And that it did.

“Throughout this year,

we shared many experiences”

Schacherer said.

“Your year started out with

a trip to a ropes-course

(along with a long bus

ride). We attended leadership

day at St. Catherine

of Laboure, went to Holy

Fire in Chicago, learned

all about crusader team

challenge, went through a

very abbreviated Catholic

Schools week — along

with a polar vortex — led

our pep-rallies, received

the sacrament of confirmation,

experienced a

beautiful May Crowning,

enjoyed and helped

facilitate our field day,

St. Norbert Class of 2019 graduates toss their caps up

in the air after the end of their graduation ceremony on

June 2. Photo Submitted

participated in cheerleading,

cross country, volleyball,

football, basketball,

track and field ... and now

graduation.”

“Your voices and ideas

brought to St. Norbert

some new activities and

practices: sweatshirts with

names on the back that

only members of a secret

society could decipher, a

new championship banner

for our gym, a mid-year

dodgeball tournament,

and most importantly, you

gave us all a brand-new

appreciation of how many

letters we have in our

alphabet.”

The end result with the

leadership of these eighthgraders

couldn’t have been

better. The students have

undoubtedly left their

mark on the school and

have made lifelong friends

along the way.

“As each of you head off

to High School, whether

that will be Carmel High

School, Loyola Academy,

Glenbrook North, Niles

West, Deerfield High

School, Cardinal Neuman

High School in West Palm

Beach or Shiplake College

in England, I am extremely

confident that you

will successfully navigate

fresh changes, identify a

new permanence and once

again find your rhythm”

said Schacherer in his

closing remarks.

graduation ceremony held at Glenbrook South. The graduating class was the last of

the old Maple School. Photos courtesy of Northbrook/Glenview School District 30

Maple School’s eighthgrade

class of 2019 had

the distinction of being

the last class to graduate

from the “old” Maple

School on May 28, which

turned 69 years old this

year.

A new 120,000 squarefoot

Maple School now

gleams just beyond the

current Maple’s back

door. One-hundred-andforty-two

students donned

in navy graduation gowns,

garnished with the orange

Maple School ribbon,

proudly took the stage at

Glenbrook South High

School.

Musical accompaniment

included Mike Vecchio’s

band and Renee

Yoo’s orchestra playing

“Pomp and Circumstance

March No. 3.” The recitation

of “The Pledge of Allegiance”

followed.

Student Council President

and representative

Moses Chua spoke on

behalf of his class. He expressed

his appreciation

for supportive parents and

teachers that have made

such a difference in his

and his colleagues’ lives.

Principal Dr. Nate

Carter then welcomed the

audience of families, administrators

and faculty.

He introduced the Board

of Education President

Ursula Sedlak.

On behalf of the board,

she congratulated and

complimented the class,

stating they are “determined,

strong, accomplished,

and should be

proud of themselves.”

“Whether you were an

athlete, in academic competitions,

or worked on

personal goals, you all deserve

to celebrate tonight.

The transition to high

school will offer challenges

and opportunities, and

is such an inspiring time,”

she said.

“It’s a wonderful time

to learn and grow. Be

open to try new things.

Don’t be afraid of failure.

It’s good to get out of your

comfort zone. Do what

you love. Be a good person,

student, friend, and

person,” Sedlak said.

Superintendent Dr. Brian

Wegley thanked Principals

Carter and Betty

Holzkopf, the Board of

Education, students, families

and faculty for helping

the pupils through

nine years of education

at Wescott, Willowbrook

and Maple Schools.

“Thank you, parents,

for sharing your wonderful

children with us. At

District 30, we exist to

create a community that

craves learning, fosters resiliency,

and cares deeply

for every child,” he said.

Although they won’t

attend the new Maple

School, he told the students

that they will “forever

have their fingerprint

on the new Maple

School,” reminding them

of the day they put their

signatures on the new library

media center floor,

prior to it being covered

with carpet.

“Increasing change is

the hallmark of your generation.

Perseverance and

hunger will serve you

well, as these are exciting

times. Young people

today have an average of

12 careers. You can visualize

your future and fate

by being purposeful,” he

concluded.

Next, the eighth-grade

chorus, with director Decima

Panitch, performed

the song “Like an Eagle,”

by Carl Strommen. Her

daughter, Rebecca Panitch,

accompanied the

choir on piano. There

wasn’t a dry eye in the

auditorium.

Former Northbrook/Glenview School District 30 Board

of Education President Chuck Gitles takes a selfie with

his daughter, Ashley, at graduation.

Superintendent Dr. Brian Wegley addresses the

graduates.

Rohan Mitra presented

the class speech and spoke

to his peers about the possibilities

that lie ahead.

He expressed gratefulness

about being provided with

an excellent education,

which has set a foundation

for lifelong learning.

Students were then

presented with special

awards by Carter,

Holzkopf, eighth-grade

science teacher Robin

Dombeck, and eighthgrade

math teacher Sarah

Arends.

Board of Education

members presented diplomas,

and the band

and orchestra performed

“Triumphal March from

Aida”, which concluded

the ceremony.

THE HIGHLAND PARK LANDMARK

Northwood breaks ground

on year-long construction

project

Northwood Junior High

School held an official

groundbreaking ceremony

outside the school on June

4 to celebrate construction

of the new Northwood

Middle School.

After the North Shore

School District 112 Board

of Education approved

funding for the project late

last year, students, staff

and the community have

been looking forward to

the modernization of their

old school.

“We are so excited,”

Northwood principal

Joanne Dimitriou said.

“This is a huge, monumental

moment in North Shore

School District 112.”

The air was filled with

excitement as everyone

circled around the shovels

pushed into the dirt, trying

to get the best view possible

of the first step of

the long-awaited update to

Northwood.

The front of the school

and classroom wing will

be completely demolished

and replaced by a modern

multi-level classroom

wing and secure main entrance.

These state of the art

additions will replace the

extra trailer classrooms in

the back of the school now

and allow Northwood to

accommodate 600 kids.

“Right now we are

bursting at the seams,”

Dimitriou said. “This is really

a long time coming for

Northwood.”

Construction is expected

to last around a year and a

half and is to be completed

in December of the 2020-

2021 school year. Students

will continue their education

at the empty Elm

Place school while their

building is developed,

which has been updated

and made ready for the arrival

of students in August.

If all goes as planned,

students will be back in

Northwood Middle School

in January 2021.

Editorial Intern. Full story at

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 well-being 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.

Contributing Editor.

THE WILMETTE BEACON

Bomb threat at Wilmette

Junior High ‘included’

racist content

Authorities responded

Wednesday, June 5, to a

bomb threat that “included

anti-Semitic language and

graffiti” written in a bathroom

stall at Wilmette

Junior High School, according

to a press release

from the Wilmette Police

Department.

The release sent out

Thursday followed up a

joint email delivered to the

Wilmette Public Schools

District 39 community

Wednesday night that did

not mention the racist content

and was co-signed by

Superintendent Ray Lechner

and Wilmette Police

Chief Kyle Murphy.

WPD’s followup press

release also said that a

student’s name appeared

as the signer of the bomb

threat.

It is unclear at this time

if the name was that of the

student who actually wrote

the threat.

According to Wilmette

police, the student who

found the message “properly”

reported it to WJHS

administrators, and police

were called at approximately

11:41 a.m. The

District 31’s Henry Winkelman

School has participated

in the Pass It On

Challenge, sponsored by

the Chicago Blackhawks

and Goodwill, for the past

three years. In 2018, Winkelman

was honored to

finish in third place, but

this year it took home first

place, earning a visit from

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman

Connor Murphy.

Each year from April 1-

April 30, Goodwill tracks

School and Winkelman

families.

More than 1,000 schools

in the metropolitan Chicagoland

area compete

to donate the most items.

The winning school earns

a visit from a Chicago

Blackhawks player, along

with a specialty plaque,

15 autographed hats, and

two autographed authentic

jerseys. Winkelman collected

22,000 items to win

the Pass it on Challenge.

On May 29, Winkelman

hosted an assembly

with Murphy, where he

answered students' questions

and taught teams of

teachers and students how

to play “Shoot the Puck.”

It was a great reward for

the work the kids put into

collecting needed items

and an incredible experience

for the Winkelman

community at large.

‘This has been and always will be a special place for me’

Beloved band

director Chapman

leaves behind

storied legacy

Alan P. Henry

Freelance Reporter

Glenbrook North Band

Director Rich Chapman

bid an emotional farewell

June 5 to the community

of student-musicians, staff

and parents he has loved

for the past 31 years.

“This has been and always

will be a special

place for me,” Chapman

told the hundreds of people

who gathered at the school

to celebrate his tenure and

be a part of a rousing musical

program produced in

his honor. “It has been a

place where I have had the

privilege of working with

all these people, a place

where I watched all of you

grow.”

Chapman recalled with

fondness the band trips

to so many foreign lands

and to events around this

country.

There were, as well, the

many competitions, most

of which garnered awards.

And then, of course, there

was GBN band camp at

Camp Henry Horner, a

sacred rite of passage.

“Everywhere we went,

we had a good time,” he

said. “No matter what we

were doing it was always

about being with good

friends.”

That connection with

students was of particular

importance to Chapman.

“I am going to miss

watching kids grow as

musicians. I am going

to miss the look on their

faces when then succeed

at something that is a

challenge to them.”

Band is a special place

“because of all of you who

have been in the band all

these years,” he continued.

“I’ve enjoyed your stories,

your humor, your ups and

down, and your energy.

You have left your legacy,

not just mine.”

Chapman also expressed

heartfelt appreciation to

the band parents. Band,

he said, “is a place where

parents can be a part of the

band experience … seeing

your kid performing,

socializing and having fun

with other kids.”

He gave a special shout

out to the GBN Band Parents

Organization (BPO).

“I have said it a million

times, we couldn’t

and wouldn’t do it without

you.”

To his dedicated music

staff, he added: “I am so

incredibly lucky to have

had the opportunity to

work alongside incredible

co-workers.”

And to all, he ended, “I

am truly humbled. Thank

you all so much.”

In honor of Chapman’s

tenure, former band member

and current band parent

Amy Torf announced the

creation of a new scholarship,

the Rich Chapman

Scholarship for Musical

Enhancement.

It reads, in part, that

Chapman “helped students

strengthen their skills and

build new ones in musicianship,

competition,

leadership and more.”

Enough money has already

been collected to fund a

$250 scholarship for at

least ten years, beginning

in 2020.

Torf also recognized

Chapman’s wife, Holly,

and presented her with a

special clock.

“We thank you for loaning

Rich to us for all these

years,” she said.

Daniel Briggs, the new

band director, served as

emcee for the celebration,

and spoke of Chapman’s

bond with his students.

“He laughs with the students,

he challenges the

students and even at times

cries with the students.” he

said. “There are not better

mentors for young people

quite like Mr. Chapman in

this world.”

Briggs also spoke of

Chapman’s impact outside

the school, an example

of which he witnessed

during a parade through

Northbrook.

”I saw faces light up, not

just because of the wonderful

band marching down

the street, but because of

Mr. Chapman. I saw him

embrace countless families

as we moved down the

streets. He would run from

side to side for the alums,

parents and community

members who love him,

all because of who he is.’’

Jason Torf, another band

alum, praised Chapman’s

ability to instill confidence

in teenagers to explore and

try new things.

“Want to try a new instrument?

His answer is

never ‘no.’ Want to try

three new instruments?

‘Sure, go for it.’ … Want

to understand some music

theory? ‘Let’s talk about

it.’ Above all else, to me,

his special quality as our

band director is his support

and encouragement of

musical exploration.”

Huw Williams, president

of the BPO, presented

Chapman with a set of

personalized luggage on

behalf of the organization.

“The comfort, the safety,

and the friendships that

Chapman with a photograph of him conducting “White Christmas” with the

orchestra, band and choir all together on June 5 at a special concert honoring his

career at GBN. Photos by Scott Margolin/22nd Century Media

this environment provided

come from the top. Mr.

Chapman really is the architect,

the builder of this

family that has held so

many students,’’ he said.

Kristin Meyer, Director

of Orchestras with

the Glenbrook Symphony

Orchestra, presented

Chapman with a gift of

a photograph of Chapman

conducting “White

Christmas” with the orchestra,

band and choir all

together. An inscription

read, in part: “Thank you

for many years of music

and collaboration. We

are appreciative of your

long, impactful tenure at

Glenbrook North.”

Allison Biernacki, class

of 2019, thanked Chapman

for his “constant support”

and for being “one of the

most cheerful and happy

people I know.”

Chad Davidson, Director

of Choirs, introduced

Chapman by first telling

the audience a little bit

about him. For one, that

Chapman cuts pieces of his retirement cake.

he is a versatile musician

who can play piano, guitar,

bass, saxophone, trombone

“and probably every

other instrument at some

level in the concert band.’’

He is also an accomplished

sailor, and has a

passion for cars, particularly

BMWs that he buys,

fixes up, and sells. But

among his many accomplishments,

said Davidson,

“Rich is most proud of his

family” — Holly, sons

Matt and Zach and their

expanding families. “I’ve

never seen Rich happier

than when he is talking

about his family,” he said.

Three musical works

were conducted by Chapman

and performed during

the tribute: the world

premier of “Favorable

Winds,” by Timothy

Mahr, by the Glenbrook

North Wind Ensemble; the

“Emperata Overture,” by

Claude Smith, performed

by the 100-plus musicians

of the Rich Chapman Honor

Band and “Championship,”

by Keith Mansfield.

Dr. Prodromos believes

“I specialize in promoting

Dr. Prodromos’ clinic is

one of the few that

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,

including the salt

mixes and juices for the

restaurant’s margaritas,

Vallejo said.

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), which feature crispy

chipotle-potato-filled spring rolls, salsa verde, basil, mint, romaine, queso fresco

and creme fraiche, is quickly becoming a fan-favorite dish at the new Glenview

restaurant. Photos by Martin Carlino/22nd Century Media

and enhances the items,”

Vallejo said.

The inspiration behind

Mercado — “market” in

Spanish — comes from the

fresh ingredients and beautiful

colors often found in

markets throughout cities

across the world, Sanchez

said.

“When you want to

know about cultures, you

go to the markets,” Sanchez

said. “Market is

my muse. Market is my

inspiration.”

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.

Vallejo highlighted Mercado’s

“Fabianita’s flautas,”

which are made with

chipotle-flavored potatoes

wrapped in a spring roll

wrapper and served on a

lettuce leaf. Flautas are

usually filled with meat

and cheese then wrapped

in a tortilla, but Sanchez is

recreating a technique she

learned when she was a

young girl in Toluca, Mexico,

according to Vallejo.

“That’s kind of the beauty

of this menu, how the

dishes evolved into what

they are. … Items that are

reminiscent to our chef’s

upbringing and dear to

her,” Vallejo said.

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

Next was the duck

bunuelos ($11), which are

crispy dumplings filled

with duck meat over an

Oaxacan mole negro and

topped with figs and queso

fresco.

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

Boys Volleyball Player of the Year

Northbrook’s Howard ends historic career

Michael Wojtychiw

Contributing Sports Editor

Loyola Academy has had a

number of successful outside hitters

in its history.

Alumni David Wieczorek and

Adam Toren are both top-15 alltime

in career kills in the state of

Illinois.

Well, they’re joined by recent

Loyola graduate and Northbrook

native Jack Howard, who had

more than 400 kills this season

en route to his fourth All-Conference

honor, finishing his career

with 1,154 career kills, 14th

all-time in Illinois. For his great

season, 22nd Century Media

named Howard its Boys Volleyball

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 to translate on to the

next level.”

Howard made the varsity

squad as a freshman, but for

someone who ended up being

successful, it wasn’t always

that way.

In fact, it was quite the opposite.

“I walked on the courts absolutely

petrified,” Howard said.

“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.”

This past season, Howard led

Loyola to the top seed in its sectional,

as well as a second consecutive

trip to the sectional final,

a place the Ramblers hadn’t

been in a number of years, especially

after having fallen in the

regional finals his first two years.

Howard missed a good portion

of the beginning of his junior

season with an injury, but returned

in a big way, helping the

team end on a successful note.

Even with the success the

Ramblers had last year, this year

was up in the air, as they lost a

good number of players from

last year’s squad, namely their

middle hitters.

“Something that I will take

away from this is after our first

actual practice walking up the

stairs, because we have to shag

on the balcony, and walking up

Loyola graduate Jack Howard is 22nd Century Media’s 2019 Boys

Volleyball Player of the Year. 22nd Century Media file Photo

the stairs with the other captains

and all of us sort of turning to

each other and saying ‘I have

no idea what this year’s going

to look like. I am confused out

of my mind whether we will

be good, whether we’ll be terrible,’”

he said.

“It ended up well and I’m

proud of what we’ve done.”

Next season, Howard will be

playing at Penn State University,

a consistent power in the sport of

men’s volleyball.

Interestingly enough, the

Northbrook resident wasn’t even

sure if he was going to play in

college as recently as March.

“Primarily I chose it for the

academics,” Howard said. “My

interest right now is in general

biology, maybe a pre-med focus,

I don’t know at this point, but

they are very highly ranked in

that regard so having those opportunities

with such a large research

school and great sciences,

that’s why I liked Penn State so

much.

“I didn’t know if I really wanted

to play (in college). Yes I’ve

had some statistical success in

high school, but I didn’t know if

I really wanted to dedicate a lot

of the next four years to the sport

that I love. Did I want to focus

a lot more on academics, or the

other extracurriculars I was really

involved in? So luckily a

great school worked out in both

ways.”

Howard thought he’d never

see himself as a vocal leader,

but that’s something he became

as the years went on. Something

else he saw a lot of improvement

in was his personal confidence.

“The biggest change over the

last four years beyond sort of

the interacting with teammates

would be personal confidence.

Knowing that I can step out on

the court and I know that I touch

higher than the guy across from

me,” he said. “I know that if I

play my own game, I’m fine.

Now I don’t want that to translate

into some form of ego because

really it’s just going from

a place when I was 14 and scared

out of my mind to get set and I

tell the setter ‘hey it’s important

right now don’t set me’ coming

into my senior and walking to

the front row and telling the setter

‘set me every ball,’ it’s just a

great thing to see how I’ve progressed

in that sense.”

COY

From Page 51

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 along the way.

But those close matches, having

to play some of the toughest

teams in the area is what helped

prepare the Trevians for the

grind of the playoffs.

According to Haak, one key

tournament really opened up her

squad’s eyes.

“I think a turning point for us

was the Downers Grove South

tournament. We were one of the

top seeds for that tournament

and we ended up in the bronze

bracket,” she said. “I don’t think

we’ve ever been in a bronze

bracket before since this coaching

staff has been here. And

that was a little bit of a turning

point for us because we knew

we could do better than that as

a coaching staff. “Our players

wanted more and knew they

could do better and we knew

we needed to step things up and

so we talked about that a lot at

practice. We kind of upped the

intensity level a little bit. We

kind of redesigned our coaching

elements, like what we wanted

to focus on coaching-wise to get

at some of our weaknesses. And

our team really wanted to kind

of restart it. So we really went

after it at that point.

“We have phenomenal captains

this year who are seniors

who would not let our team

check out.”

Boys volleyball Coach of the Year

Consistency key to success for Trevians

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,

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

[inaudible 00:06:28], but

we do definitely change

up our practices, the things

we emphasize strategically.

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

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.

Girls Basketball

Spartans announce new head coach, coaching staff

Staff report

Nick Capalbo got his

dream job.

Glenbrook North made

it official when the athletic

department announced

Capalbo will serve as the

school’s new head coach.

Capalbo had served as

the program’s junior varsity

head coach with great

success, and after the departure

Danielle Fluegge,

it made sense to keep the

program’s voice familiar.

“It’s a dream job,” Capalbo

said. “We have a really

good team right now

and we’re looking to be

competitive in our new

division we’re going to. I

can’t wait to get started.”

The new became official

June 5 when the program’s

Twitter account

tweeted a post announcing

the news.

“Just announced...Girls

Varsity Basketball Coach

will be Nicholas Capalbo

and the Assistant Coach

will be 2015 Illinois

Basketball Coaches Hall

of Fame inductee Steve

Weissenstein!!! Let’s Go

Spartans!!!!” the tweet

reads.

Capalbo will replace

Fluegge, who announced

she’s leaving the program

at the end of last season to

spend more time with her

new position at the school

and to spend more time

with her family.

The familiarity will be

key for a growing program.

Capalbo will know

the rising seniors on the

team since he coached

them when they played

for the junior varsity team

and will know the players

he just coached this past

season.

The new head coach

will start working with

his team during summer

league, whether players

will learn more about the

new coaching staff and

start making preparations

for more than just one

transition.

The Spartans will have

a change in face in their

first season in the Central

Suburban League

South, shifting over from

the North after a conference

realignment. For the

Spartans, the summer will

serve as a good way to

start getting ready for the

new division.

“It’s going to be a good

transition,” Capalbo said.

“We are going into a summer

league where we’re

seeing these teams. We’re

going to compete and play

hard, play to win.”

Capalbo will have quite

the experience on his

bench during his first season.

North also announced

that former Glenbrook

South girls basketball

coach Weissenstein will

join the program as an assistant

coach.

The Spartans add a hallof-fame

coach in Weissenstein,

who retired from

serving as the Titans’ head

coach last season. The

former Titan head coach

mentioned that he would

want to serve as a coach

in some sort os capacity

after leaving Glenbrook

South.

Weissenstein mentioned

that North athletic

director John Catalano

reached out to him about

joining the staff. Having a

good relationship with the

Spartan athletic director,

it made sense for him to

join the staff.

“I’m excited about it,”

Weissenstein said. “It’s

kind of cool that Glenbrook

North is coming

into the South. Obviously

I know the teams pretty

well. The fact that they

have a young, exciting

coach in Nick and he’s

going to make it a lot of

fun.”

The new assistant

coach knows the division

and conference well after

coaching for so long,

which will be useful for

the rookie head coach.

But for Weissenstein,

he’s excited to get another

chance at teaching the

game of basketball to the

next generation of players.

“I’m excited to work

with kids who want to be

basketball players,” Weissenstein

said. “It doesn’t

matter whether they’re in

South or North. Any kid

who wants to learn, I’m

happy to make them as

good as they want to be.”

Purdy ready to take confidence to Iowa

Andrew Favakeh

Sports Intern

Talk to Ryan Purdy and

it doesn’t take long to notice

his confidence.

The Glenbrook North

boys swimming and diving

alumnus didn’t always

drip confidence. After a

lackluster junior season

where he didn’t win a

race, he blamed himself.

He knew he lacked the

blazing speed and notable

times big colleges

searched for in recruits.

So when the University

of Iowa called, he answered.

No other colleges

called before and none

have called since.

It was simple: Iowa or

bust.

“When they recruited

me, I knew I wasn’t

very fast,” Purdy said.

“I wasn’t going to be a

highly recruited kid, to be

honest. My times simply

weren’t there. They were

one of the only teams to

recruit me and give me a

chance.”

He slightly improved in

the summer, but his largest

step forward happened

in the fall. As a football

player all his life, he had

to make a choice to leave

the game that held family

value.

His father Matt Purdy

served as the team’s assistant

coach, but in order

to succeed in swimming,

he needed to focus on one

sport.

It was his first time

swimming in the fall.

Though he didn’t record

his best times, he was

swimming dead-tired,

pushing his limits.

He knew if he could

swim fast sans tape,

shave, or fast-suits, his

times would rise.

That, they did. In fact, in

this season’s IHSA State

Meet, he won three state

titles, all of which were

school records: the 200-

yard individual medley,

100-yard backstroke freestyle

and the 200-medley

relay.

But before his confidence

could return, he

needed to change. He

used to pressure himself

before races: Am I holding

myself back? Even as

he came down with the

flu three days before the

state meet his junior season,

he blamed himself

for not making the “a or

b” final. Now, he takes

deep breaths before every

meet, envisioning himself

touching the wall and

raising his fist.

“What I did my senior

year was just relax before

the meet,” Purdy said.

“Because I knew if I put

pressure on myself before

the meet, it wouldn’t have

gone the way I wanted it

to. I just let loose and let

it happen. I didn’t worry

about the meet.”

He also didn’t let his

college decision get in the

way of what he wanted to

accomplish in his senior

year. Purdy first visited

Iowa in September of his

junior year before visiting

campus again for a junior

day.

No other school reached

out to Purdy, but that was

fine by him.

“They were in a position

in early November

where they probably saw

that they were taking a

chance on this kid,” Spartans

head coach Jarod

Schreoder said. “By February,

they’re thinking,

‘holy cow, we’ve got a

really good one coming

in.’”

When he visited Iowa

City, Iowa, he found what

he wanted in his college

team: friendships. Purdy

liked how it seemed everyone

on the team had

bonds and were close with

each other, something he

cherished with his own

teammates in high school.

“Once you get to the

college level, you find

that these teams aren’t a

real team, just a lot of individual

guys swimming

for themselves,” Purdy

said. “That’s the one thing

I didn’t see in Iowa, I saw

a true team that cares for

each other and push each

other in practice.”

So while there were no

other suitors, that didn’t

matter. Purdy signed his

letter of intent to swim at

Iowa in October.

Iowa hasn’t had much

success in a competitive

Big Ten. The Hawkeyes

finished eighth out of 10

teams at this past season’s

conference meet with 560

points — conferencechampion

Indiana finished

with 1,705.

Purdy sees it as his

freshman season with a

strong freshman class

coming in. He knows

there will be plenty of

two-a-days, if not threea-days,

but Purdy is ready

for the challenge.

“College is a whole new

beast, whole new training,

education … ,” Purdy

said. “It’ll be a lot different

than I’m used to, but

it’ll be a good change. I’m

looking forward to it.”

He’s got the confidence

for it.

The unexpected

is what draws

so many of us to

sports.

It’s one of the reasons

why I wanted to become

a sports writer growing

up. Sure some things go

according to plan like in

the NBA where it appears

dynasties rule the league

with every decade that

passes, but most of sports

is filled with surprises.

It’s why we watch the

games and why there are

so many fun stories to tell

from the different experiences.

Surprise seemed to be

the theme for Glenbrook

North athletics this season.

In high school sports,

it’s sometimes easy to predict

what’s going to happen.

You know the players

who are coming in. Unless

there’s a very late transfer,

which likely wouldn’t be

allowed, coaches and fans

know who’s coming back,

who’s going to lead the

team.

But sometimes we don’t

know what’s going to

happen, and that happened

with so many different

Spartans teams this

season.

Most North teams

entered their last season

in the Central Suburban

League North with the

upcoming move down to

the South division taking

place at the beginning of

the next school year. One

of the common questions I

asked coaches and players

was whether there was

any emphasis placed on

trying to win the North in

their respective sport for

the last time and most answered

yes. They wanted

to focus on more in their

season, but winning that

division championship

one more time was definitely

in the back of their

minds.

So there was plenty of

opportunity for different

surprises and the biggest

moment in the fall came

when Natalie Sandlow

became North history. The

news shouldn’t come as a

shock to anyone who kept

up with Sandlow during

her freshman season, but

few probably could’ve

guessed she would become

the first All-State

runner in program history.

She finished 21st at this

year’s cross-country state

meet, breaking her own

school record that she had

set.

What’s next? I wouldn’t

The Glenbrook North boys lacrosse team was one of the fun surprises this school

year. 22nd Century Media File Photo

be surprised to see her

break her own record

again.

The winter was filled

with a few more conference

championships, but

an individual performance

led our highlight reel for

practically every week

during the winter. Boys

swimmer Ryan Purdy

stole the show, constantly

breaking school and pool

records along the way.

While it probably wasn’t

a surprise to Ryan or his

family, the extent to which

Purdy would excel was

a surprise to many. The

Spartan went on to win

two state championships

and will go to swim at the

University of Iowa.

The fun surprise of

the spring was the boys

lacrosse program. With

powerhouses like Loyola

Academy and New Trier

in the area, it’s hard to

steal the show sometimes.

But that’s exactly what

the Spartans boys lacrosse

program did in its postseason

run. The Spartans

were the No. 3 seed in

the Lake Forest Sectional

and took down No. 2 St.

Viator before the Spartans

pulled off the ultimate

upset, taking down No. 1

Lake Forest, considered

one of the better teams in

the area.

The team almost made

its way to the state final

four, but a comeback fell

short to eventual state

runner-up Warren in the

super-sectional.

This is why we love

sports, and there was a lot

to love when it came to

Titans athletics.

Here’s to more surprises

next season. Thanks for

the great ones this school

year.
