Benefit to support Frankfort

Square resident with cancer

Nuria Mathog, Editor

Frankfort Square residents Bryan (left) and Jennifer

Jurgovan pose for a photo at their home June 12.

Nuria Mathog/22nd Century Media

If you go...

What: Fishing for a Cure Benefit 4 Bryan

When: 3-8 p.m. Saturday, June 29

Where: American Legion Post 474, 3539 214th St.

in Matteson

How to purchase tickets: Tickets will be sold at the

door ($30 for adults 21 and up, $15 for children

and young adults aged 6-20 and free for children

under 6) and discounted entry tickets are available

at www.benefit4bryan.com ($20 for adults 21 and

up, $10 for children and young adults aged 6-20

and free for children under 6).

Bryan Jurgovan has always

loved fishing.

It was a passion that

began when the Frankfort

Square resident was a

young boy growing up in

Posen. He would accompany

his father, Ron, and

his brother Kevin out to

the lake, and when he became

a father, he continued

the tradition with his own

children.

“It wasn’t about the

catching — it was about

the memories,” Bryan said.

“That’s what Dad taught us

... He’d fish, he’d pull out

a fish, and then he’d cast

back, and then I’d cast a

foot away from him. He’d

say, ‘There’s all this lake,

and you’ve got to fish right

there.’ And I’m like, ‘Well,

that’s where you showed

me where the fish were.’”

Since he was diagnosed

with Stage 3 rectal cancer

in July 2018, Bryan’s fishing

trips have been far and

few between. This week,

Bryan’s family is planning

a special fishing-themed

benefit to raise money for

his treatment and recovery.

The Fishing for a Cure

Benefit 4 Bryan, scheduled

from 3-8 p.m. Saturday,

June 29, will be held at the

American Legion Post 474,

3539 214th St. in Matteson,

and feature food, music,

raffles, fishing-themed

games and activities and

more.

“It has been in the works

for a while,” said Jennifer

Jurgovan, Bryan’s wife. “...

We’ve used all of our savings,

pretty much maxed

out all of our credit cards.

We’ve cashed out stocks.

We’ve kind of run the gamut

of all the available funds

that we could pull from.”

Everything changed for

the Jurgovans after Bryan’s

diagnosis.

“They discovered the

tumor, and in September,

he had to have 28 consecutive

days of chemotherapy

and radiation, which he

completed in October,”

Jennifer said. “Then, they

let him recover, and in November,

he went in to have

the tumor removed. They

did remove the tumor and

then they stitched him all

back together and said that

it was actually a textbook

surgery, everything went

great, and he would just

need to heal and he could

do his last round of chemo

and that would be it.”

Unfortunately, there

were complications with

the surgery. Bryan noticed

that the right side of his

pelvis was numb, and in

January, following a CT

scan, doctors discovered

his tailbone had become

infected. Treating the problem

required a permanent

colostomy bag and daily

antibiotics, delaying his

chemotherapy treatment

plan. A second infection

Summit Hill D161 Board of Education

Study for K-12 district gets green light

T.J. Kremer III, Editor

WANT TO REFINANCE

BUT LOW ONEQUITY?

Frankfort •New Lenox

Gina Persiani

NMLS# 512344

815.463.7040

After nearly an hour of

debate, Summit Hill D161

Board of Education voted

6-1 to go ahead with a feasibility

study that could

put the district on a path to

secede from Lincoln-Way

Community High School

District 210 and create its

own K-12 district.

Board member Joy Murphy

cast the lone dissenting

vote.

The vote authorizes the

Unit District Feasibility

Committee to begin negotiations

and sign a contract

with District Leadership

Solutions LLC in an amount

not to exceed $35,000 for

Phase 1 of the group’s proposal.

Phase 1 will consist of

four parts: a student enrollment

study, which will examine

issues surrounding

facility usage, staffing, curriculum

offerings, State aid

and facility planning; an examination

of the overall tax

impact that will assess issues

of debt, provide a comparison

of financial profiles

for each district, estimate

tax rates for each district,

provide five-year financial

projections and examine

fund balances; an examination

of the tax impact on

providing a baseline high

school experience to that of

D210, including curriculum

and extracurricular opportunities

for students; and an

examination of the final tax

impact on D161, including

the purchase of the currently

underused Lincoln-Way

North building.

The first two parts are expected

to be completed by

Sept 30. It’s anticipated that

the second two parts will be

presented by Nov. 1.

Board President Rich

Marron said that, in addition

to the many public comments

the committee heard

at its June 5 meeting, the

board received 169 emails

in favor of going forward

with the study, as opposed

to 13 against.

“A count of 169 is what it

is, but I can tell you that in

my six years that is the most

emails we have ever gotten

on a topic,” Marron said.

Murphy said she would

rather see the funds to be

used on the study come

from community fundraising,

rather than through the

district’s funds.

“As much as I do agree

with a [feasibility] study,

I’m so apprehensive to

spend the current students

money for the study,” Murphy

said. “The enrollment

study I’m 100 percent for.

The other three [parts of

Phase 1] — I suggest, I will

work hard, I will do whatever

it takes, but I would

love to see that money being

raised by a group of people

who live in the community.”

But Marron countered

that the money had already

been raised by the community

in the form of taxes

that individuals pay to the

district.

“I think that what is forgotten

here in the proposal

that was thrown out to say

that people within the district

should raise the money,

they have; this is their money,”

Marron said. “To say

that we should ask someone

to raise money if they wish

to control how it is spent,

that is why we’re elected to

represent them, and this is

everyone’s money.”

Murphy went on to say

that she had a conversation

with LW D210 Superintendent

Scott Tingley that

raised additional concerns.

“[Tingley] told me that

Mokena, Manhattan, Frankfort

and New Lenox will not

vote for this,” Murphy said.

We offer unique programs that

let you refinance upto97% of

your home’s appraised value!

When asked after the

meeting, Tingley said that

he told Murphy that a referendum

to split D161

from D210 would be “difficult”

because the end result

would be that D210 would

be forced to close one of its

led to another stay in the hospital.

Bryan has been unable to

work since September 2018,

but he hopes to return to work

in the fall. In the meantime,

Jennifer is supporting the family

on her salary and donations

from family and friends.

“With the radiation and the

chemo, he just couldn’t physically

keep up with his job,”

Jennifer said. “And then, with

all the complications, it just

made it that it was just impossible

for him to go back.”

The fishing fundraiser is the

latest in a series of efforts to

help Bryan and the Jurgovan

family get back on their feet. In

March, a small benefit in Lockport

brought in about $1,800,

Jennifer said, and a GoFundMe

page set up on behalf of the

family, https://www.gofundme.

raised an additional

$1,680 by mid-June.

Community members have

generously donated raffle

prizes for the fishing benefit,

including four tickets and parking

passes to the Chicago Cubs

vs. Cincinnati Reds game on

July 15, four tickets to see the

Smashing Pumpkins and Noel

Bryan said he owes the

strength he has found to continue

his fight against cancer to

the ongoing support of his wife,

family, neighbors and friends.

Mokena, Frankfort team up for torch run

Caitlin Fyfe

Freelance Reporter

The annual Law Enforcement

Torch Run benefiting

Special Olympics

Illinois continued through

the southwest suburbs the

morning of June 5 with

the help of Mokena and

Frankfort police.

This stretch of the

torch run, which was 3.1

miles, started at the intersection

of 191st Street

and LaGrange Road in

Mokena.

The route proceeded

south on Lagrange, where

Mokena police and volunteers

then handed the torch

off to Frankfort police and

volunteers.

The torch run joined two

community’s for a cause

that helps raise money and

awareness for athletes who

participate in the Special

Olympics.

According to Special

Olympics Illinois, the

Torch Run includes an annual

intrastate relay conducted

by officers representing

every branch of

law enforcement within

the state, as well as with

federal partners.

Special Olympian and

Ambassador for Special

Olympics Illinois Rikki

Kirsch participated in the

Mokena leg and rode her

bicycle. She was accompanied

by Mokena Chief

of Police Steve Vaccaro on

a bicycle.

Throughout the week,

approximately 3,000 officers

carried the Flame

of Hope which traveled

1,500 miles from June

2-7. The Torch Run was

held through various Illinois

communities where

23 different routes were

designated. This lead up

to the opening ceremony

of the Special Olympics

Illinois Summer Games

that began on Friday,

June 7, in Normal, where

torchbearers ran into the

stadium to create a stream

of flames.

“Anytime you can help

with an event like the Special

Olympics it is great to

be involved,” said Frankfort

Chief of Police John

Burica. “The run signifies

the kick-off of the games,

and this helps bring attention

to these athletes and a

great cause.”

Since 1986, the Law Enforcement

Torch Run has

raised nearly $51 million

while bringing awareness

of Special Olympics Illinois

athletes.

Vaccaro said the Mokena

Police Department

raised about $6,000 so far

this year through the Cop

on a Rooftop and Chase a

Cop events.

Olympics Illinois, visit

Hemp Gummies Shown

To Relieve Discomfort

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

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

Chris Laufstein

Associated Health Press

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

be moreexciting.

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

can be purchased without aprescription.

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

bear.

So youcan saygoodbye to pills,needles,and creams!

Hemp Gummies,contains pureconcentrated doses of hemp extract,

which can help relieve joint discomfort along with general muscle aches

and soreness.

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

Exciting new scientific research shows that hemp extract contains

special relief molecules called cannabinoids which bind to receptor cites

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

receptors, and soothing comfort begins to takeform.

Available Across the Nation

Recent developments,likethe US Farm Bill,allow Hemp Gummies

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

high it’sflying off the shelves.

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

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

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

Quest.

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

cannabinoids. These cannabinoids target special receptor cites all over

the body but aremost prominent in the brain.”

“This system of cannabinoids and the receptorsthat theybind to are

called the Endocannabinoid System and science is just now unlocking

its amazing medical potential”

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

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

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

physically demanding sports as asafe alternative.”

Clearing Up the Confusion Around Hemp

One of the biggest mistakes people make when talking about hemp

extract is mixing it up with marijuana.

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

theyhave completely different effects on the body.

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

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

makes youfeel “buzzed”.

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

feeling the effectiverelief,” explains Wezensky.

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

constantly ache. Hemp Gummies boosts cannabinoid levels extremely

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

general soreness. Italso eases stress and elicits amazing relaxation

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

delicious and so easytotakeonthe go.

HowitWorks

Clinical studies show that cannabinoids and the receptors that they

bind to arefound all overyour body.

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

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

comfort.

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

bind to each other triggering important biological processes.

Hemp Extract, like Hemp Gummies,may

help users with...

•Aching joints

•Soremuscles

•Cramping

•Leg and foot discomfort

•Restlessness

•Stress

•Sleep problems

Keeps Your Body Balanced...

The incredible impact cannabinoids have on your health is directly

related to the primary goal of your Endocannabinoid System, which

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

homeostasis.

Research shows that maintaining this balance is akey to vitality and

healthybodily function.

The cannabinoids found in Hemp Gummies, hemp extract, replenish

your levels quickly,easing discomfort overthe entirebody.

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

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

evenpromote relaxation and calmness.

Not YetSold in Stores

Hemp extract that is derived from industrial hemp, like Hemp

Gummies, is available nationwide. However, several major

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

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

pharmaceutical companies are currently testing hemp extract in

clinical settings, which means it may require aprescription in the

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

Taking All the Risk Off Consumers

Alarge percentage of men and women using Hemp Gummies

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

with aguarantee that goes way beyond the industry standard.

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

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

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

substantial discounts for first time customers, we also makethem

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

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

and you must be thrilled with the results! Otherwise, simply

return the empty bottles within 90 days. Then, the company will

refund your money plus give you an extra $10 for having tried

the product.

Warner

Fifteen Baird & Warner

agents from Downers

Grove, Frankfort, La-

Grange, and Orland Park

gathered at St. Coletta’s

on May 22 to help clean

up landscaping at several

group homes located in the

southwest suburbs. Each

group was assigned a home

where they pulled weeds,

laid down stone, spread

mulch and helped clean up

any branches or debris that

landed in the yards from

the recent rain storms.

This partnership started

in 2018 when Elaine Kindt,

a realtor from the Downers

Grove office, had a chance

conversation with her longtime

an ideal volunteer opportunity.

Kindt explained, “Baird

Several agents participated

in the past and jumped at

the chance to help again.

Jason Gansko, from the

Frankfort office, recalled,

“When we went on a tour

of the facility and saw the

Transition Program, the

murals and the classrooms,

we were impressed by the

awesome programs at St.

and refusing to leave, according

to the Will County

Sheriff’s Office.

Vijay S. Yadav, 49, of

21313 Windy Hill Drive in

Frankfort, was arrested for

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

TPHS students, teachers

moved by promise-keeping

initiative

Back in March, fellow

teachers Maureen Koce and

Rebecca Haustein attended

a conference and walked

away so inspired, they returned

to Tinley Park High

with a simple-but-radical

idea: Getting students and

teachers to make promises

— and keep them.

The duo, along with an

enthusiastic group of about

10 students, started the

school’s Because I Said

I Would program with

the goal of improving the

school, one promise at a

time.

Because I Said I Would

is an international nonprofit

with a straightforwardyet-profound

mission: Improving

humanity through

accountability. The organization

was started by Alex

Sheen in 2012 after he delivered

the eulogy for his

father, a man known for

keeping his word.

Sheen, on that day,

handed out for the first

time what went on to become

known as Promise

Cards — little reminders to

follow through. His message

has blossomed since,

reaching a global audience

across more than 153 countries.

Koce and Haustein recruited

students involved

with the already-established

Say Something initiative,

a violence-prevention

program, and the poms

team, of which Haustein is

a coach, and got to work.

They held meetings,

planned a school-wide

campaign and, in early

May, made their presence

known in a big way.

Wearing T-shirts emblazoned

with Because I Said

I Would, the students and

teachers took to all corners

of the school, handing out

Promise Cards and spreading

the word about the new

effort, day after day.

After a week of distributing

and collecting cards,

the club organized the hundreds

they received in a

mural just outside the cafeteria,

a heavily trafficked

area where the cards could

be read and have an impact.

From the Editor

Recognizing a talented photographer

nuria mathog

Editor

When we first

published an

incredible action

shot captured by our photographer

Julie McMann

in late October, it received

a lot of positive feedback

from readers. One reader

commented on the accompanying

article’s Facebook

post, “This picture

deserves an award! Wow,

incredible shot.”

The judges at this year’s

National Newspaper Association

competition agreed.

McMann’s dynamic

image of a touchdown by

Lincoln-Way East wide

receiver AJ Henning, taken

during the team’s Oct. 26

IHSA playoff game against

St. Charles East, earned

an honorable mention in

sports photography in this

year’s contest — the fourth

NNA award The Station

has received to date.

McMann has long been

one of our top photographers,

and her talent

clearly shines through

in her work. Her photos

consistently capture the

excitement and emotions

of all of the events that

make Frankfort so special:

the energy of Friday night

football games, the anticipation

as students wait to

walk across the stage at

their graduation ceremonies,

the joy of a family

attending a concert on Breidert

Green. In many ways,

she has become an integral

part of the community we

serve — If you’ve ever

been to a sports game at

Lincoln-Way East, attended

the Frankfort Fall

Festival or brought your

child to a Frankfort Park

District event, you’ve

probably run into her at

least once or twice.

I am incredibly proud

of all of the great work

that McMann and the rest

of our team of freelance

reporters and photographers

produce every week.

They do outstanding work

and the recognition is welldeserved.

“Thank you for coming to the ice cream

social yesterday!!!”

From Page 18

in 2001.

“I’m very proud, and I

was just one little bit, but

I’m very proud I was a part

of getting this referendum

passed and getting this

building built,” Broccolo

said. “I think, if it’s not the

best looking building in

Will County, it’s pretty

close. I know I’m prejudice,

but I think it’s a beautiful

building.”

Broccolo lost the first

time he ran for a board position

and he did not think

it would bother him much,

but it did, he said.

“When I ran the first

time, I never said ‘I’m

going to do this, this and

this,’” he said. “I was

just encouraged to run by

Georgia Madden, who has

passed away since then.

She worked here and said

‘you’re in here all the time,

why don’t you run for the

library board.”

Part of what Broccolo

was known for was his

sense of humor, so that

shined through at times.

The second time he ran

unopposed and told Madden

if he somehow lost that

time, he was going to put a

“for sale sign” in front of

his house because he could

not be a “nobody.” And that

was the start of a 34-year

tenure.

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Park district rolls out

‘Unplug Mokena’ campaign

Mokena Community

Park District wants residents

to disconnect from

the digital and power up

for playtime this summer

so that people can spend

more time experiencing the

great outdoors that is, frequently,

right in their own

backyards.

It’s all part of the park

district’s Unplug Mokena

campaign this summer.

The topic was featured at

Mokena Chamber of Commerce’s

monthly meeting

June 11.

Mike Selep, the park

district’s executive director,

said residents should

put away their phones, step

away from the computers

and laptops, turn off the

gaming systems, and ask

themselves, “What’s one

thing you really liked to do

as a kid?” and then go do it.

“The thing that I think

we have the biggest challenges

with is that we sit.

We sit a lot,” Selep said.

“We sit at our desks. We sit

at our computers. We sit at

home and watch TV. We’re

not really up and about as

much as we used to be.”

Selep cited the national

rise in obesity and the

health risks associated with

it as the main danger in

not spending 30 minutes a

day of moderate activity,

such as taking a walk in

the park, taking one’s children

or grandchildren to

the playground and engaging

in some playtime with

them, or getting together

with friends for a round

of disc golf or some other

light sporting activity.

The park district has a full

lineup of summer activities

planned for the Village. Go

to mokenapark.com to view

upcoming events.

Art on the Green highlights creativity, community

Laurie Fanelii

Freelance Reporter

Downtown Frankfort

was even more alluring

than usual on Sunday,

June 9, as Art on the Green

brought the creative community

together to celebrate

artistic expression.

More than 30 local artists

exhibited their work at

Frankfort’s Breidert Green

Park, and attendees had the

opportunity to purchase

everything from paintings

to photography to jewelry.

As a juried show, the event

showcased a high level

of fine art, and the artists

were in the running to win

prizes for the top three artists

as well as two honorable

mentions.

Since forming in 2018,

The Frankfort Arts Association

has worked to bring

area artists of all mediums

together. The Village of

Frankfort — a major sponsor

of Art on the Green —

handed off its Fine Arts

Fair to the association

to host the renamed, revamped

event for the first

time this year.

Spray paint artist Stephon

Kiba Freeman, of

Stevens Point, Wisc.,

“I started the process

studying abroad in Rome,”

Freeman said, noting that

he uses sponges, palette

knives and crumpled

newspaper to add texture

to his paintings. “In Rome,

a lot of artists used spray

in the plaza, so I was mesmerized

watching them

functionality with his creations.

“Everything is functional

best to make each piece

individual and unique, just

like a person,” Eckmayer

said. “The work itself is

all wheel-thrown, and then

it’s either altered in some

way at that time or when

I fire it to a certain bisque

temperature. Then, it’s

glazed in a way that can’t

be duplicated.”

Eckmayer explained

that he is always trying to

reduce waste, so he developed

a way to incorporate

slip – excess clay developed

when working on a

clay wheel – as a decorative

element.

“I form these cool designs

with the slop – slip or

slop, but I call it slop – by

moving my hand around it,

and then it’s bisque-fired

like everything else,” he

said. “I put glaze over it

and wipe it away almost

attendees had a chance to

get their hands dirty at the

children’s craft station and

sensory table.

“At the sensory table,

they have this thing where

you can put in glitter and

different liquids,” said

Frankfort Arts Association

Treasurer Cody Ziebell.

“They seal it in a paper,

so when you touch it it

forms different colors. It’s

mostly for people who are

on the autism spectrum, so

it’s nice for them and all

kids. They have box sets

that you can take with you

and work on at home.”

Christina Cooley, Frankfort

Arts Association secretary,

added that the craft

station also featured a

make-and-take project.

“One of our members,

Judi D’Andrea, who’s a

ceramicist, created a whole

bunch of clay magnets that

kids can paint and decorate

over there,” Cooley said.

Frankfort Square resident

Barbara Bergmann

enjoyed watching the children

add their artistic embellishments

to the magnets

as she made her way

around Breidert Green.

“I saw the kids painting

the butterflies and dinosaurs,”

she said. “They

were having a lot of fun

and really concentrating.

Then, I saw some interesting

wildlife paintings and

then I was looking at this

glass. I love glass.

“I really would like

something hanging like

those mirrors over there —

connected with the glass

baubles — so I’m thinking

about that,” she added,

pointing to the glasswork

at the Lindon Hollow

Stained Glass booth.

Art on the Green was

scheduled to coincide with

the Frankfort Country

Market, so attendees were

able to shop for paintings

and produce at one convenient

location.

and years ahead, the

Frankfort musician keeps art of organ-playing alive

Mary Compton, Freelance Reporter

Frankfort resident Glenn Tallar rehearses on the Barton pipe organ Friday, June 14, inside the Rialto

Square Theatre in Joliet. Mary Compton/22nd Century Media

While walking along Scott

Street behind the Rialto Square

Theatre in Joliet, residents should

not be alarmed if they hear organ

music from the show “Phantom

of the Opera” playing some

nights. It is just Frankfort resident

Glenn Tallar rehearsing.

Tallar, who was raised in Homer

Glen, was destined to live life

glued to an organ bench.

“Growing up, I had a pipe organ

in my house in Homer Glen,”

he explained, pointing to a Barton

pipe organ inside the Rialto

Square Theatre. “My parents Janet

and Robert Tallar still have

that organ in their home today.

“My whole family were Joliet

Area Theater Organ members.

I grew up around organs. I’ve

been coming to the Rialto since I

was born. I’ve been playing this

Barton organ since I was about

three.”

As a child, he said, he could not

even reach the pedals.

“I could never read the music

because I was so short,” he said.

“There was a pane of glass where

the music would sit; I would read

the music through the glass.”

At the age of 5, Tallar began

to play “When the Saints Go

Marching In.” His first concert

was at the Rialto Square Theatre

when he was 11 years old. Today,

he plays music ranging from classic

Star Wars and Disney tunes to

songs by Lady Gaga.

Tallar started saxophone lessons

in grade school, which were

taught by his future band director

at Lockport High School.

“I went to grade school at

[Hadley Middle School] and high

school at Lockport High School,”

Tallar said. “I was always fascinated

by sound and lighting, so

in my freshman year at Lockport

High School, I joined the drama

club. By my senior year in 2006,

I was in charge of running sound

for the productions.

“Back in 2004, we got an interesting

request from the music

choir director, Sarah Randolph

at Kelvin Grove School in Lockport,”

he added. “Myself, Jim

Patak and other [Joliet Area Theater

Organ Enthusiasts] members

coordinated playing ‘Phantom

of the Opera’ on donated instruments,

and we gave a concert to

kick off their music program. To

this day, she is still doing that.”

Randolph brought her students

to the Rialto recently for a chance

to play the famous organ. Eight of

the students became members of

the Joliet Area Theatre Organ Enthusiasts.

“I try and keep the pipe organ

music up to date,” Tallar said.

“If you play music from the ‘20s

and ‘30s, the general public is not

interested in that style of music.

You’re going to get more of an

interest and applause if you play

Star Wars then you would from

the Gershwin era. That’s what has

to bring this music back.

“I play anything, from Joplin to

Gaga, because everyone knows

the entertainer,” he said. “I always

hope to stay current in my

music. It also takes a long time

to develop your skills to play one

of these. It’s a never-ending process.”

Joel Martis, president of the

Joliet Area Theatre Organ Enthusiasts,

has been coming to the

Rialto since he was a young boy.

Back in the early 1970s, movies

were shown at this “Jewel of

Joliet.” After he came to see the

movies, his eyes caught the attention

of a beautiful pipe organ in

the orchestra pit.

“We maintain the Barton Pipe

Organ at the Rialto Square Theatre,”

Martis said. “This is one of

the original theatres that still has

the original instrument designed

for it. There’s only about 300 left

in the country.”

Martis, along with Tallar and

Jim Patak, performs on the pipe

organ made in 1926.

“Most of the organs from the

era met their demise, busted up or

moved,” he explained.

One of the goals for Martis and

Tallar is to keep the art of the organ

pipe alive, so the group hosts

socials, inviting church groups

and others. The Joliet Area Theatre

Organ Enthusiasts organization

has been doing that for

48 years. “A lot of people don’t

know we exist.”

“I have been house organist at

the Rialto since 1992,” said Jim

Patak, the group’s treasurer. “I’m

88 years old and still having a

ball.”

As Tallar gave a mini concert,

Patak kept a watchful eye as Tallar’s

fingers moved across four

keyboards with keys. Martis explained

the history of the Rialto

Square Theatre, sharing historical

moments, the Rialto ghosts and

how Tallar got a wedding gig.

“We were all here going over

maintenance of the Barton organ,”

Martis explained. “A bride

and groom walk in, explaining

to the wedding planner of their

‘Phantom of the Opera’ wedding

theme. She hands the planner a

CD from the movie and told her,

‘We’re going to use this.’”

“After a few minutes, they

walk in the hallway as Glenn

jumps on the organ to play,”

Martis continued. “He begins to

play the music from the production

‘Phantom of the Opera.’ The

bride runs in and told Glenn, ‘We

want you, we want to hire you.’

And so they did.”

Tallar said he still gets hired to

play at weddings today. He also

is invited to play the pipe organ

throughout the country. Between

all of that, he runs a business restoring

and servicing pipe organs.

At the age of 14, Tallar was

hired to play an old pipe organ,

which is now Beggars Pizza in

Lansing. When he is available,

he still plays there on Tuesday

and Friday evenings. He is also

the house organist at the Chicago

Theatre.

“I opened for the former mayor

of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, and

also opened for Ken Burns as

well as the Oak Ridge Boys,” he

said.

Recently, when an organist

that usually plays for the Providence

Catholic High School

graduation booked another

event, Tallar came and played an

hour before graduation, giving a

full concert to a surprised crowd

of family and friends. It was the

first time he had performed for

the Providence graduation.

The Barton organ is used for

all the movie events at Rialto.

Another goal for Joliet Area

Theatre Organ Enthusiasts members

is to bring back their oncea-year

concert, the Rialto Extravaganza.

“That was a lot of fun,” Tallar

added. The group is also trying

to attract younger members to

their group.

“We want the young musicians

to inherit this,” Martis said

as he put his hand on the organ.

“If you don’t get them interested

in this, it’s just going to stay covered.”

The Joliet Area Theatre Organ

Enthusiasts organization is always

looking for new members.

The Dish

Bailey’s owners ‘put a lot of love’ into restaurant over past decade

Jacquelyn Schlabach

Contributing Editor

With practically no experience

in the food industry

under their belts,

husband and wife Ronald

and Tamir Bailey opened

Bailey’s Bar and Grill in

2009.

Ten years later, they

have continued to pour

their love for quality food,

service and atmosphere

into the restaurant that has

evolved into a “hot spot”

in Tinley Park.

“We’re staying with

what we’re doing,” Ronald

said in regard to the

restaurant’s 10th anniversary,

which was celebrated

in March. “We started this

business — neither one

of us were ever involved

in the bar/restaurant business,

and we had a lot of

big dogs that are our competition,

and now we’re

neck and neck with all the

competition on Oak Park

Avenue. They’re following

our pattern.”

The Bailey duo never

wanted to just open a bar;

they wanted to create an

experience for customers

by which they could

pair great food with great

drinks.

“If you just come here

and sit in a bar and there’s

no food — you have to eat

sometime and somehow, or

people are going to leave,”

Tamir said. “You have to

have good food, because

then people are going to

stay and then drink and

hang out. Without food, I

don’t know how any bar is

going to survive.”

They refer to their menu

has “way above bar food”

and take pride in making

many of their items in

house.

“You can find any drinks

at every bar, but you just

can’t find the service or

good food, because everybody

cooks differently,”

Tamir said.

Bailey’s hamburgers,

which are the most popular

men item, are fresh, handpacked

and seasoned in

the kitchen. The restaurant

also makes its own soups,

dips and salsa.

A popular sandwich

item, the Bailey’s Reuben

($11) comes with

corned beef, sauerkraut,

Swiss cheese, Thousand

Island dressing served on

marble rye bread with a

side of chips. One of the

popular entree dinners is

the 12-ounce New York

strip steak ($21.99) and is

served with garlic bread,

choice of potato, vegetable

and a house salad or cup of

soup.

On Mondays and Saturdays,

Bailey’s offers $2.50

hamburgers, which Ronald

said contributes to Mondays

being one of the restaurant’s

busiest days. The

restaurant also offer $1 tacos

on Tuesdays.

“There’s many times

throughout the day you

can’t even get a seat in this

place, because of that,”

Ronald said. “Literally, it

costs us more to make that

taco than a dollar, but it’s

been a good business model

for us.”

Bailey’s offers daily

specials Monday through

Sunday, as well as drink

specials every day.

The food is not the only

thing that keeps bringing

people back to Bailey’s.

In addition to daily specials,

Bailey’s welcomes

customers to enjoy free

karaoke nights at 9 p.m.

Wednesdays and Fridays

and free live acoustic

music from 7-10 p.m. on

Bailey’s Bar & Grill focuses on being a restaurant as much as it is a bar, but that

does not stop the Tinley Park spot from serving drink concoctions such as this beer

margarita ($15). Photos by Jacquelyn Schlabach/22nd Century Media

Bailey’s Reuben ($11) comes with corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and

Thousand Island dressing, served on marble rye bread with a side of chips and pickle.

Tuesdays and Saturdays

throughout the summer.

“Some bars are like a

biker crowd; some bars

are like the kids crowd,

[but] we have a little bit of

an older, mature crowd,”

Ronald said. “That’s because

we’re trying to be

more restaurant and not

100 percent bar.”

Bailey’s strives to be a

family-friendly restaurant

that also allows dogs to be

on its front patio.

“When we first started,

we had no experience,”

Ronald said. “Our food

was going to be just basic,

and we were going

to be more bar. But over

time, we found out that

you have a better clientele

when people come in with

their families and couples

come in, instead of just

having the bar crowd.

So, we’re achieving our

goal.”

Because of their success

in Tinley Park, the

Bailey’s expanded the restaurant,

knocking down

the middle wall and adding

two retail spaces to the

mix. In addition, Bailey’s

also opened another location

two years ago in Oak

Forest.

“We glow in [the success],”

Ronald said.

“That’s what drives us.”

Looking onto the next 10

years, Ronald and Tamir

simply want to maintain

what they have been doing

for the past decade.

“Sometimes I wonder

how we did it,” Tamir said.

“If you saw this building

before, oh my God, it’s

just like day and night.”

Big changes ahead for IHSA basketball, football

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

The Illinois High School

Association announced

last week a format change

for the boys and girls state

basketball finals. Beginning

in 2021, the finals for

all four classes in girls basketball

will be held over

one three-day weekend,

with all four classes of

boys being contested the

following weekend.

In the past, Classes 1A

and 2A were held over one

weekend, with 3A and 4A

the next.

Under the new format,

16 games will be played

each week, from Thursday

to Saturday, and the championship

games in all four

classes will be held on the

same Saturday.

The hope is the change

will boost attendance. It

prevents the large-class

boys finals from conflicting

with the highly-popular

opening weekend of

the NCAA Tournament, as

it has in recent years.

“There has been a great

deal of support for this

new tournament format

over the past few months,”

IHSA Executive Director

Craig Anderson said in a

press release. “We tried to

be as transparent as possible,

communicating the

idea and seeking feedback

from basketball coaches

and school administrators

throughout the state in a

variety of ways. It was

fairly unanimous that most

felt like it was {an} idea

worth trying.”

Hypothetical football

districts

Last month, the IHSA

released proposed districts

for football, which

is slated to switch to the

new format - in which

the IHSA will schedule

seven or eight of a team’s

nine-regular season games

based on location and enrollment

- in 2021.

Under the proposal,

Lincoln-Way East would

be in a Class 8A district

with Belleville East, Edwardsville,

Joliet Central,

Joliet West, Lockport,

Minooka and O’Fallon,

meaning the Griffins

would have to take two

trips to the St. Louis

metro area every other

year, and one in other

seasons.

Lincoln-Way Central

is slated to play in a 7A

district with LW West,

Bradley-Bourbonnais,

Thornton, T.F. South,

Plainfield Central, Romeoville,

Thornwood and

Yorkville.

Lincoln-Way East’s

Baseball

LW East grad O’Reilly, LW North grad Fredrickson bolster UIC pitching

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Ryan O’Reilly persevered

through the setbacks

and kept working hard to

make his baseball dreams

come true.

The Mokena native and

Lincoln-Way East graduate

met one of his ultimate

goals this spring: pitching,

and having success, at the

NCAA Division I level.

O’Reilly helped Illinois-

Chicago win the Horizon

League and play in the

NCAA Tournament. In

his first season with the

Flames, he became a mainstay

in the bullpen and one

of the most dependable relievers

on the team.

“I felt like if I came in

here and was able to do

whatever was asked me of

to the best of my abilities,

that good things would

happen,” O’Reilly said. “I

feel like for the most part

I’ve done a great job with

that. I’ve had great support

from my coaches and

teammates and that’s made

things a lot easier.”

Joey Fredrickson, a Lincoln-Way

North graduate,

also played a prominent

role on the team as a starting

pitcher. Lincoln-Way

East graduate Jake Pomykalski

was also a part of

the Flames’ pitching staff,

but made just one appearance

in a game during his

redshirt freshman season.

For O’Reilly, developing

a big role at UIC was

a huge step on a journey

which began with two

seasons at Triton College,

a junior college in River

Grove. O’Reilly became

Triton’s top pitcher in

2018, leading the team in

innings pitched (57 1/3)

and strikeouts (60), and

compiling a 3.30 ERA. He

pitched eight scoreless innings

and struck out 11 in

a regional championship

win over South Suburban

to send Triton to nationals.

All that attracted the attention

of the UIC coaching

staff.

“It’s always been a goal

of mine just to compete at

this level,” O’Reilly said.

“It feels really good. Going

from high school, to

the grind through junior

college, to here, it’s nice

seeing all the hard work

pay off. It’s satisfying. I’m

really proud of all the hard

work I put in to be able to

play at this level.”

O’Reilly ranked third

on UIC in appearances,

pitching 21 times out of

the bullpen. He had a 4.10

ERA and struck out 19 in

26 1/3 innings pitched.

He made the transition

from junior college to Division

I pretty smoothly.

“It’s a big change,” he

said. “The talent got a

lot better. My teammates

pushed me to a higher limit.

The biggest challenge

was just adapting to more

games, more practices,

workouts, 5 a.m. lifts. At

the junior college, it just

didn’t really compare to

the grind that there is here.

“It’s a lot tougher, but it

made me better.”

The Flames had a tough

start to the season, winning

just one of their first eight

games. They rebounded

late in the season, entered

the Horizon League Tournament

as the No. 2 seed,

and won the championship

to earn their spot in the

NCAA Tournament.

“To come back and do

what we did is great,”

O’Reilly said. “No one

thought we were capable

of doing this, but everyone

on the team believed we

could compete and make it

to a regional.”

UIC’s season ended at

the Louisville Regional, as

the Flames went 0-2 with

losses to the host Cardinals

and Indiana.

A memorable final chapter

Fredrickson was a fifthyear

senior who made the

most out of his final season

of college baseball.

In his second year with

UIC, the Lincoln-Way

North graduate cracked the

starting rotation.

“All through my baseball

carer, I’d never been

a reliever up until last season,”

he said. “I knew I’m

at my best when I’m starting.

Last year was a big

transition. I knew going

into this year that I had to

fight for that starter’s role

and I knew I wanted it.”

Fredrickson finished

second on the team in wins

as he went 6-5 with a 4.57

ERA.

He was also second in

innings pitched with 84

2/3.

“I like being a guy

coaches can depend on,

getting into later innings,

they won’t have to worry

about if they should put

me in for another inning,”

he said. “I think I’ve

shown there’s not going to

be a lot of things that are

going to get to me during

the game. I’m going to be

ready to go out there and

compete, throw strikes and

get outs.”

Like O’Reilly, Fredrickson

began his career at a

junior college, pitching

two seasons at BlackHawk

College in Moline before

moving to UIC.

“It’s been a really great

ride,” he said. “Out of

high school, I had aspirations

to play at the highest

level of college baseball. I

would have liked to take

that route right out of high

school.

“Unfortunately, it

didn’t work out, but I

knew going the junior

college route wasn’t the

worst thing in the world.

I knew I just had to work

even harder, and my work

ethic went up while I was

at juco and helped me get

here.”

Fredrickson continued a

family tradition. His parents,

Jim and Wendy, were

both gymnasts at UIC.

“It’s cool to hear the

stories about what it was

like when they went to

UIC and how things have

changed so much,” Fredrickson

said. “There are

some things that haven’t

changed, too.”

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Trevor Lewis

Trevor Lewis recently

finished his junior season

on the Lincoln-Way East

volleyball team.

When did you start

playing volleyball?

I started playing volleyball

in seventh grade. I got

introduced to volleyball by

my mom. She was a Division

I athlete and played

volleyball at Syracuse

University.

AS 1, 2, 3.

afront loader foronly

$123/MO. 1

What was your

favorite memory from

this season?

Hands down, winning

our own tournament, the

Lincoln-Way East Tournament.

It was one of the

strongest tournaments

in the state. It felt really

good, especially since it

was our own.

What have you

learned from coach

Kris Fiore?

What he tells us all of

the time is understand your

role and do your job. It’s

one of his main lines that

he tells us.

You play both setter

and right-side

hitter, what would

you attribute your

versatility to?

I mean, basically everything.

I’m not normally a

setter, but coach Fiore started

to slide me into that position.

It was to help out the

team. I love working out,

I’m at the gym all the time.

What are some goals

you have for next

season?

We lost a lot of seniors.

So, we just have to keep

our heads up and don’t

give up. We have to stay

the course and make sure

we can achieve our potential.

Do you prefer normal

TV or a streaming

service?

Definitely streaming

services, especially Netflix.

I watch Netflix a lot.

“Friends” is definitely my

go-to show on there.

What do you like to do

in your free time?

I’m either out at the sand

courts playing beach volleyball

or I’m at the gym

working out.

GARY MIDDENDORF/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

What is the best part

of being a Lincoln-Way

East athlete?

Definitely playing with

all of my friends from

school. A lot of us play

club together, it’s a great

experience to be able to

play with them all the

time.

If you could live in any

time period, which

would you choose?

I’d probably choose to

stay in this time period.

There’s a lot of cool stuff

now.

Who is your favorite

athlete?

I’d have to say Tom

Brady. He’s a six-time Super

Bowl champion, that’s

pretty cool.

Frankfort’s Hunniford brothers team up on baseball field

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

When Drew Hunniford

committed to play baseball

at St. Xavier and his older

brother, Justin, decided to

transfer from North Central

College to St. Xavier

to play football, the brothers

began dreaming about

having a chance to be

teammates.

Justin Hunniford also

played baseball at Providence,

where both brothers

from Frankfort graduated

from. While he planned

to devote all his energy

to playing quarterback

for the Cougars, he knew

he would have one spring

open after completing his

senior season on the gridiron.

“We always kind of

joked around about it,

messed with each other

about it,” Drew Hunniford

said. “But then it became

reality.”

The Hunnifords played

together on the St. Xavier

baseball team this spring.

Justin, who was the

Mid-States Football Association

Midwest League

Offensive Player of the

Year in the fall, put on a

baseball jersey for the first

time since his senior year

of high school in 2015.

“I figured after football

was done, my last semester,

I’d like to give baseball

a shot,” Justin Hunniford

said. “I’m really happy I

did it. It was a lot of fun.

The guys on the team were

very accepting and made

me feel really welcome

right away.

“Having my brother out

there was awesome. I’ve

watched him his entire career

and he’s watched me,

so to be able to finally play

with him was great.”

Back on the diamond

Justin Hunniford was

unsure how much playing

time he’d get in his return

to baseball, but he ended

up being St. Xavier’s

most-used pitcher out of

the bullpen.

He made 17 appearances

and went 2-2 with

a 6.11 ERA. After some

early struggles, he was a

dependable weapon down

the stretch for the Chicagoland

Collegiate Athletic

Conference champions.

“I hadn’t thrown a baseball

competitively since

high school,” he said. “I

always threw batting practice

to Drew in the summers,

but nothing with

max velocity or anything

like that.

“It took a bit to get past

that rust, but it came back

fairly quickly.”

By the end of the season,

St. Xavier coach Rocco

Mossuto felt comfortable

giving the ball to Justin

Hunniford with the game

on the line.

“We’re going to him in

these huge situations and

here’s this guy that’s been

with us four months,”

Mossuto said. “But he was

a starting quarterback. So,

it’s a different sport, but

it’s a guy that’s used to

having to be clutch.”

From his spot in the outfield,

Drew Hunniford was

always excited to watch

his brother pitch.

“He came in after not

playing for four years and

he did really well,” Drew

said. “He locked it down

when he needed to. It was

like he never skipped a

beat from high school. It

was really cool.

“When I’m out there

and I see Justin come in,

I’m happy because I feel

like we’re going to get out

of the inning quicker. I’ve

seen him in high-pressure

situations, and I know

what he can do.”

Fun for the family

Before having the

chance to play together,

the Hunnifords both spent

a lot of time in the stands

cheering the other on.

“Growing up, we always

fought like all siblings, but

we’ve always been there

for each other,” Drew

Hunniford said. “I’d go to

his football games, he’d

come to a lot of my baseball

games, but being together

for every game this

season was great.”

Drew, a sophomore, also

had a huge impact on the

Cougars as their leadoff

hitter. He hit .330 with

three home runs, 31 RBI

and 61 runs in 50 games.

He made huge improvements

from his freshman

year, when he hit .226.

“It was a huge leap mentally,”

he said. “I became a

lot more comfortable in the

role I was going to play,

felt 100 percent confident

leading off. The team we

had made it impossible not

to be confident. We had so

much fun together, team

morale was high, and everyone

fed off each other.”

While Drew still has

two more seasons with

the Cougars, Justin has

graduated and started his

football coaching career

at Hersey High School in

Arlington Heights, where

he’s set to be a student

teacher in the fall.

You can bet he will be

in the stands for Drew’s

games whenever possible.

As memorable as this

season was for the brothers,

it was perhaps even

more meaningful for their

parents, Matt and Carol.

Frankfort native Justin Hunniford joined the St. Xavier baseball team for his senior

season and had a role in the bullpen.

“I think my parents really

enjoyed it,” Justin Hunniford

said. “They were able

to come to a lot of games.

It was really cool for us

both to walk off the field

together and go see them

as opposed to me walking

off the football field and

approaching the three of

them or Drew walking off

the baseball field and approaching

the three of us.

“It was just a really special

season for all of us.”

Dig it.

Danny Pacini certainly

did.

The recent Lincoln-

Way East graduate was a

three-year starting libero

on the Griffins boys volleyball

team. He’s taking

his defensive talent to continue

his volleyball career

at Dominican University

in nearby River Forest.

But not before leaving his

mark on the volleyball record

book at East.

This past season, Pacini

shattered the school record

for digs in a season and in

a career. He had 450 digs

this season and passed Eric

Van Dyke (433 in 2016)

for the single-season dig

record. Along the way, he

got to 955 digs in his career.

That easily surpassed

the old record of 715 set

by 2015 graduate Robby

Hoffman.

“That’s the goal,” Pacini

said of getting digs. “I’m

not winning the game by

myself. But I can make my

teammates better by getting

them a pass or getting

them a dig.”

Being a libero means

being strictly a defensive

player. It also means diving

for balls going out of

bounds or even into the

crowd.

So does Pacini have

a favorite dig out of the

nearly thousand he had in

high school?

“Yes, I do, “ he said.

“Last year in the state title

match [a 20-25, 25-21, 25-

22 win over Neuqua Valley

on June 2, 2018] I had

the dig that allowed the

pass to Brent O’Donnell

who set Wil McPhillips for

the match-winning kill. It

wasn’t a spectacular dig,

but it led to us winning the

state championship.”

It sure did, and although

the Griffins couldn’t duplicate

that run and get back

to the title match for a third

straight season this spring,

they had another outstanding

season.

East (28-10) advanced

to its seventh sectional final

in the past eight years

before losing to eventual

state champion Marist 25-

14, 25-11 on Tuesday, May

28 in the Marist Sectional

championship.

Still, McPhillips, who

set a new school singleseason

record for kills

with 363, surpassing Ryan

Vorderer (350 in 2014) and

Pacini made it a recordbreaking

season.

“Danny will go down

in East volleyball history

as one of the best liberos

of all time,” East coach

Kris Fiore said. “He was

a kid who always came

to practice every day to

work hard and perfect his

craft. He also excelled in

the classroom, having the

highest GPA on the team.”

Pacini will be taking his

high GPA to Dominican

where he plans to major in

biochemistry.

“I probably want to go

into the pharmaceutical

field,” Pacini said. “I want

to be in a field where I can

help people.”

His play on the court

helped him get an offer at

Dominican.

“It was my junior year at

East and I got a text from

my club coach, Troy Vidovic,”

Pacini said. “He

said that Dominican was

interested in me. I went on

an unofficial visit there last

summer. and I really liked

it.

“The coaches [led by

head coach Dan Pawlikowski]

were great and

there was an emphasis on

the team there. It’s similar

to East and Ultimate

in that it’s all about the

team aspect. Soon after, I

went for my official overnight

visit and I committed

then. I just had my orientation

on [June 12 and 13]

and signed up for classes

then.”

Pacini’s love of volleyball

started when he was

young.

“I have an older halfsister,

Briana Michaels,”

Pacini said. “She played

volleyball and I used to

wake up at 5 AM just to

go watch her play in tournaments

and stuff. I loved

it. She played volleyball

at East her freshman and

sophomore years.”

Pacini picked up the

game and started playing

club ball at age 13.

“Actually I was an outside

hitter at first,” he said.

“Back then I was the same

height as everyone else.

Now I’m currently 5-foot-

11, so I’m considered short

in the volleyball world. So

I started playing libero as

a 14-year old. But I’d still

like to think I could get

some kills.”

What Pacini does know

was that his time was special

at East. He was there

for a golden age where the

Griffins got second, won

the title and finished this

season in the Sweet 16.

“Winning the title was the

highlight of high school,”

he said. “But that was the

byproduct of the culture at

East. Everyone, every team

that was there before us set

that up. I can’t thank coach

Fiore enough. I don’t think

I’d be the player I am now

if he hadn’t pushed me. He

knows our potential and he

brings it out.”

LISTEN UP

“Having my brother out there was awesome. I’ve watched

him his entire career and he’s watched me, so to be able to

finally play with him was great.”
