EveFit upgrading women’s

fitness in Orland Park space

Amanda Del Buono

Freelance Reporter

When Danielle Brannon

had the opportunity

to develop her own fitness

classes, she knew she

wanted to cater to women.

With the help of two

partners and after two

years of planning, EveFit

opened on Feb. 1, 2018,

on LaGrange Road. More

than a year later, the facility

has established a dedicated

membership base

and has stayed committed

to encouraging women’s

holistic health.

The women-only gym

strives to make exercise

easy, accessible and fun

though hour-long classes

that combine cardiovascular

exercise, strength training

and yoga into workouts

designed for their bodies,

Brannon said.

“We knew that the community

needed a facility,

somewhere where women

could feel safe and secure,

completely 100 percent

comfortable, and a judgement-free

zone, where

they are able to get a really

effective workout,” she

said. “There isn’t anything

like us around, and the

women-only component,

yeah, it’s for the safe and

secure, but we also wanted

to be able to create a workout

that was specifically

designed and tailored to a

woman’s body.”

In a typical EveFit class,

a trainer guides a group of

women through a structured

workout that is broken

down into 20-minute

segments of each of the

three exercise components,

Brannon said.

“It’s really all of the Top

3 tiers that women need

when it comes to fitness,”

Brannon said. “We need

cardiovascular. It’s heart

healthy, getting your heart

rate elevated and working

your blood flow. ... Women

need strength training; we

need to work our muscles.

“And then, yoga is so

often overlooked. The importance

of being flexible,

stretching out so you can

tone and have nice lean

muscles, and … the more

flexible you are, the easier

it will be to perform the

cardio and strength portions

of any workout.”

This structure appealed

to many members, especially

those who hold a

full-time job or are fulltime

mothers and need a

workout that quickly combines

the essentials. Additionally,

several women

said they also like knowing

they are doing all three

workout elements, which

they might not have done

if they were exercising on

their own.

“What appealed to me

was the structure of the

classes,” said Rhonda Harris,

an Orland Park resident

who started attending EveFit

shortly after it opened.

“I don’t like to do cardio,

so just knowing that I’m

only going to do 20 minutes

of it is good. I love

strength training; that’s

my favorite. I like that I

can get everything that I

need in one class: cardio,

strength and yoga, in an

hour. Now, I don’t have to

worry about if I need to do

cardio this day or strength

training that day. It’s just

really convenient.”

To make the workouts

more effective, members

wear heart-rate monitors

during class, Brannon

said. The monitors

let women know if they

should be working harder

or if they’re working too

hard, and keep track of the

number of calories burned

throughout the workout,

providing a sense of accomplishment

at the end,

she added.

Because the classes are

specifically designed for a

woman’s body, they were a

logical fit for Tinley Park’s

Amani Ammar, EveFit’s

first member who found

the gym while she was

pregnant with her youngest

child and looking online

for an all-women gym.

are trainers there to help

you and guide you,” Ammar

said. “If a movement

is too difficult, they modify

it for you. If they feel like

you’re not doing enough,

they’ll make progressions

for you,” Ammar said.

“The heart-rate monitor

system really helped me

all throughout my pregnancy.

I actually worked

out there throughout my

whole entire pregnancy.

“I’m seven months postpartum,

and throughout

my whole entire pregnancy

they would give me

modified moves. And now,

to get me back into shape,

they’re doing a lot of progression

for me.”

Two-time breast cancer

survivor Norma Tendy, of

Oak Forest, said that the

focus on women’s bodies

and the trainer encouragement

have helped her on

her fitness journey. Having

had two mastectomies,

Tendy needed a workout

that improved her upperbody

strength while also

staying within her doctor’s

restrictions.

“I can only lift certain

amounts of weight, and

they help you,” she said of

EveFit. “They’re amazing

there — all the trainers are.

“I’ve come a long way.

I couldn’t squat down before,

because I have bad

knees, and I can do that

now. I had never run on

a treadmill before until I

started going there. It’s

made quite a bit of a difference.”

In order to provide a holistic

approach to women’s

health, EveFit also focuses

on giving members an experience

that makes exercising

enjoyable, Brannon

said.

“What we’re doing is

more than just fitness,” she

said. “What’s more important

is we’re all about

being an experience, an

experience for all women

walking in the doors knowing

that no matter where

you’re at — your age,

your fitness level, what

you’ve been doing prior, if

you’re fit, you’re not fit. It

doesn’t matter. Everyone

feels welcome; everyone

can work out together in

the same workout room at

all different levels, and it’s

much different than a lot of

places are. We’re bringing

something together that’s

totally new and different

to the industry, making it

about more than just working

out. It’s a whole wellness

approach.”

This approach is what

helped Orland Hills’ Karen

Carenen, who had not

exercised in decades, start

classes at EveFit and stay

motivated. Carenen started

attending EvefFt in March

2018 in an effort to get

ready for a vacation she

was taking that fall. That

vacation has come and

gone, but she still is a devoted

member of the gym.

“ I have met just amazing

people there, other women

there my age, younger,”

she said. “And they’re all

just very supportive, along

with the trainers, very encouraging.

… It’s a combination

of both the actual

class and the great women

that are there that make it

so great.”

Ammar added it has

benefitted her mental

health, too.

“I have three kids, and

being able to go to a gym

with that kind of support

system and all of that positivity

around you, it really

does help you,” she said.

“It boosts your energy. It

boosts your mood.”

Several women have

been able to battle health

issues with the help of the

EveFit exercise routines

and nutrition programs,

Brannon said. Harris is

among those women. Not

only has she lost more than

40 pounds in the past year

but also overcame a diabetes

diagnosis.

“After working out just

a couple of months there,

I went back to my doctor,

and my A1C number

dropped so much,” she

said. “I went from being

diabetic and went down to

being pre-diabetic, and the

number keeps dropping.

My doctor is very, very excited

about this.”

Harris also has high

blood pressure and said

that those numbers also

have significantly decreased.

“It’s changed my life,”

she said. “Period.”

Frankfort’s Sue Sinwelski

said she considers

herself relatively healthy,

despite managing two autoimmune

diseases. Although

she has always

eaten well, she wanted to

improve her exercising

habits and was encouraged

to join EveFit after attending

a nutrition class led by

EveFit trainers.

“I’m really interested in

trying to [stay healthy],”

Sinwelski said. “Obviously,

I’m in my early

50s, and now it’s all about

maintaining for myself.

Because I have rheumatoid

arthritis, I have to be able

to keep mobile. That’s the

whole key when you have

this disease. … I took one

of the free classes when

[EveFit] first opened, and

I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I

can do this.’”

Rounding out the holistic

approach to women’s

health is a community that

has developed among the

members.

Sinwelski said the

friends she has made at

EveFit have been essential

to her success, because

they regularly communicate

and offer accountability.

“Several of us have become

very good friends

that work out there, and

that, again, is important,”

she said. “We message

each other, ‘Hey, when

are you working out this

week?’ and we try to hook

up to work out together,

because, again, it’s important.

“I went into this place

not knowing a single person

… Now, I’m part of a

family.”

Sandburg-bound student reflects on

flawless elementary attendance record

Erin Redmond

Freelance Reporter

In roughly

1,408 days,

Evan Vossos

has not

missed a day

of school.

The recent

Jerling Jr.

High School

graduate

Evan

Vossos

never missed a single day

over his eight years of elementary

school. Because

of that, Vossos was recently

recognized at Jerling’s

graduation ceremony by

leading his class in the

Pledge of Allegiance.

Vossos’ perfect attendance

was no accident. He

set his eyes on achieving

perfect attendance back in

fourth grade, when realized

he “hadn’t been absent

in awhile” — or ever,

that is.

“It was a combination

of luck and will,” Vossos

said. “I don’t get sick that

often — I have a good immune

system — so that

came into it. I just [had the

mentality of] ‘I want to go

to school today. It’s a fun

experience. We learn.’”

As if never being absent

was not enough, Vossos

also was never tardy — at

least not technically. A few

bus delays here and there

may have caused him to be

late to class once or twice,

but when he had his way

he was always ready to

learn as soon as class began.

Vossos’ unblemished

attendance record did not

come without sacrifice,

though.

“He did miss the Cubs

parade; he’s an avid Cubs

fan,” said Dimitra Karis

Vossos, Evan’s mother.

“He really wanted to go,

and he would’ve had

a good view because I

[work] downtown. He did

miss that.

“He missed a couple

basketball tournaments

that were out of town. He

decided he would rather

go to school and go to the

tournaments on the weekends.

He was very determined.”

Evan’s dedication to his

schoolwork paid off, earning

him a spot in Sandburg

High School’s honors program,

which he is to start

in the fall. He took a high

school-level math class as

an eighth-grader, giving

him an academic edge as

he enters the next phase of

his schooling.

And on top of all of that,

Evan also juggled eight

years of Greek school,

too. He was on travel soccer

and basketball teams,

but all were second fiddle

to his determination to

achieve perfect attendance.

With eight years under

his belt, what’s four more?

Evan said he intends to

keep his streak going

throughout high school but

thinks it will be much easier

than what he has already

achieved.

Plus, 12 years of perfect

attendance might look

good on his future resume.

“My dream job would

be to work for NASA,” he

said. It doesn’t even have

to be in space. They’re just

a very influential organization.”

honored at Oct. 5

ceremony

Staff Report

From an “inspirational”

obituary to “engaging”

breaking news to a “haunting”

and “exceptional” investigation,

22nd Century

Media publications earned

a company-record 16

awards for journalistic excellence

from the National

Newspaper Association.

It is the seventh year

of national competition

for 22nd Century Media,

parent company of The

Orland Park Prairie, and

the 16 awards top the company’s

previous high of 14

(2015).

The National Newspaper

Association boasts

more than 2,000 members,

and this year its annual

Better Newspaper

Contest welcomed more

than 1,300 entries from

36 states. Winners in the

competition, judged by

esteemed journalists from

across the country, will be

honored at an Oct. 5 banquet

in Milwaukee.

“I am blown away,” said

Joe Coughlin, the company’s

publisher. “Our editorial

team works tirelessly

to produce quality community

journalism that informs

and equips our readers.

The work is for the

community, but accolades

of this magnitude help validate

those efforts.”

Of the 16 awards won

by 22nd Century Media,

two were first-place and

seven were second-place

honors. 22CM also earned

three third-place nods, and

four were honorable mentions.

The Homer Horizon, the

first newspaper launched

by 22nd Century Media,

earned both first-place

awards — one for a feature

written by Editor Tom Czaja

and the other for an investigative

piece produced

by a team of reporters.

Four of the honors went

to The Orland Park Prairie,

which was recognized

for two editorials by Managing

Editor Bill Jones,

a sports column by Jeff

Vorva and an obituary tribute

by reporter Meredith

Dobes.

Regarding Vorva’s

second-place Best Sports

Column entry, “Plenty of

heroes,” judges said “Jeff

gets brownie points here

for a piece that gets extra

power from its efficient

language.” They also

And the winners are ...

List and details of the 16 national award-winners for 22nd Century Media

called Dobes’ tribute to a

late Montford Point Marine

“an honestly inspirational

obituary.”

Jones earned secondplace

for Best Editorial

with a column about the

importance of voting, with

judges calling it a “creative

twist to the same

old, same old get out and

vote opine.” He took an

honorable mention for a

column about the student

walkouts, with judges saying

it was “well written

with several good points”

but that it “could have

been said in fewer words.”

Jones disagrees.

“I would have done so

‘respectfully,’ but I feared

that might be too wordy,”

he wrote.

Jones also contributed to

the second-place recognition

the Malibu Surfside

News received for its coverage

of the devastating

Woolsey Fire. Vorva also

picked up a second place

for Best Review in The

Tinley Junction for his take

on the Marilyn Manson/

Rob Zombie show at the

Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre,

as well as an

honorable mention in that

paper for Best Sports Feature

Story or Series an entry

called “No white flag.”

Other awards southwest

suburban awards were

won by: The Lockport Legend

(sports story by Editor

Max Lapthorne) and The

Frankfort Station (sports

photo by Julie McMann).

“The variety of work

that was recognized is

particularly impressive to

me,” Publisher Joe Coughlin

said. “These are the

best reporters in Chicago’s

suburbs, and they keep

proving it.”

Success story:

The Orland

Park Prairie

to stay free

Staff Report

Thanks to the thousands

of Orland Park residents

who returned request forms,

The Orland Park Prairie

will remain free of charge.

Because of these diligent

residents, The Prairie

maintained its second-class

mail status from the United

States Postal Service. One

of the requirements of the

USPS to retain secondclass

mail status is that every

three years more than

half of the homes in town

submit a card requesting

the publication.

The Prairie’s qualification

for this vaunted status

means that Orland Park

residents will receive their

Prairie on a timely basis

and that the postal costs

for The Prairie have been

greatly reduced, thereby allowing

the paper to remain

free.

If you are a resident who

has not returned a request

form and do not want to

rely on the good graces of

your neighbors or have had

the delivery of your paper

discontinued, you can visit

OPPrairie.com/delivery

and fill out the form in seconds.

If you are unsure about

whether you returned your

card, contact our circulation

department at (708)

326-9170.

Thank you again for the

excellent participation in

our program to keep The

Prairie free. Even more

good news is that we will

not have to ask you for help

again until 2022, when the

USPS will ask us to repeat

the process.

Group” scores, according

to a press release issued

by the U.S. Attorney’s

Office. Those numbers

indicate a patient’s care

requirements based on

the level of physical-, occupational-

and speechrehabilitation

therapy the

patient receives, and the

complexity of the skilled

nursing care the patient

requires, according to

the release. Higher RUG

scores meant a higher

amount paid by Medicare

to the nursing facility.

It also reportedly was

alleged that providers rendered

skilled therapy to

patients who did not need

it or could not benefit from

it, as part of an effort to

bill the highest possible

amount to Medicare.

The settlements and

consent judgments resolve

a civil lawsuit filed in U.S.

District Court in Chicago

by a former employee of

Quality Therapy under the

qui tam (whistleblower)

provisions of the False

Claims Act. The Act permits

private citizens to

bring lawsuits on behalf of

the United States for false

claims and to share in any

recovery.

The United States intervened

in the lawsuit prior

to the settlements and consent

judgments.

Other companies agreed

to pay the following

amounts: Carlton at the

Lake $3.63 million, Lake

Shore HealthCare $2.73

million, Balmoral Home

$1.17 million, Ridgeview

Rehab $1 million and

Parise $160,000.

Parise also agreed to

be excluded from all participation

as a provider in

Medicare, Medicaid and

all federal health care programs

for a period of five

years.

There was no determination

of liability as part

of the settlements and consent

judgments, according

to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

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

that 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 mission of 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.

FROM THE NEW LENOX PATRIOT

Library board member

leaves after more than

three decades

Lou Broccolo spent the

last 34 years on the New

Lenox Public Library

Board, and his time on it

finally came to an end at

the June 10 meeting.

He joked that he started

on the board when he was

10 years old.

Broccolo, a retired middle

school social studies/

history teacher, started on

the board in 1985, long before

the current library was

built in the New Lenox

Commons.

He saw the library

through many changes, including

the new building

process that was completed

in 2001.

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. 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 FRANKFORT STATION

Art on the Green highlights

creativity, community

Downtown Frankfort

was even more alluring

than usual on 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 3 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.

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 is all part of the park

district’s Unplug Mokena

campaign this summer.

The topic was featured at

Mokena Chamber of Commerce’s

monthly meeting

on 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,”

Selep said. “We sit a lot.

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.

FROM THE HOMER HORIZON

Girl, 14, suffers broken

bones, bruised liver after

being struck by car

A 14-year-old girl was

riding her bicycle with a

friend when she was struck

by a car and suffered broken

bones and a bruised

liver the evening of June

9 in Homer Glen, according

to Will County Sheriff’s

Office spokeswoman

Kathy Hoffmeyer.

At 8:47 p.m., deputies

responded to the intersection

of Bell Road, north of

143rd Street, in regard to

the girl being struck, according

to police. When

they arrived, they found

the driver of a Mazda 6 at

the intersection with the

teenage girl lying in the

street.

The girl was responsive

but had difficulty speaking,

police said.

The Northwest Homer

Fire Protection District arrived

and transported her

to Silver Cross Hospital,

per Hoffmeyer. The teen

was later transferred to

Christ Hospital to be treated,

and initial reports have

indicated her injuries as

being non-life-threatening.

Witnesses stated the girl

and her friend were crossing

Bell Road on their

bikes against a red light

when the 14-year-old was

struck, according to Hoffmeyer.

The injured girl is a

Homer Glen resident.

The accident remains

under investigation.

No tickets had been issued

initially following the

crash.

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

LGBTQ support

organization comes to

Lockport

People in the LGBTQ

community are constantly

battling ignorance and discrimination,

and the fight

for equality is ongoing in

the Lockport community.

The PFLAG organization,

which was founded in

1973 by Jeanne Manford,

is an active organization

with 400 chapters across

the country. PFLAG stands

for Parents, Families, and

Friends of Lesbians and

Gays. PFLAG’s mission is

to “build on a foundation

of loving families united

with LGBTQ people and

allies who support one

another, and to educate

ourselves and our communities

to speak up as advocates

until all hearts and

minds respect, value and

affirm LGBTQ people.”

Michelle Eckmayer,

president of the chapter in

Homer Glen and Lockport,

is confident that PFLAG is

contributing to the communities

by positively

impacting the push for

equality for the LGBTQ

community, and making

discrimination less and

less prevalent.

“Really, there [are] three

basic things that we try to

do,” Eckmayer said. “That

is support, educate and advocate.

... There is much

more to fight for, because

ignorance still surrounds

us. This is why we educate,

because some people

just do not understand it

and get afraid of what they

do not understand. Once

you educate people, they

are more informed and less

likely to discriminate.”

The chapter in Homer

Glen/Lockport is to officially

begin having meetings

the last Tuesday of

every month that will be

open to anyone who wants

to support the LGBTQ

community.

Meetings are to be held

from 6:30-8 p.m. at Cross

of Glory Lutheran, 14719

W. 163rd St. in Homer

Glen.

If you took a look at

Page 6 this week, you

saw that our publishing

company recently won 16

national awards, three of

them for The Orland Park

Prairie. Two of those

awards were for these here

columns of mine.

And before you think

I’m recounting those wins

for another round of selfhigh-fives,

I only bring

it up because I’d like to

parlay whatever cache

of credibility it helped

me build this week into a

serious subject I’ve been

meaning to tackle: restaurant

buzzwords.

Every industry big

enough to have marketing

people involved (or for

the influence of marketing

people felt) has buzzwords.

They often change

with the winds, signifiers

of trends and calls to those

searching for what’s hot.

But nowhere are they as

annoyingly prevalent as

in the restaurant industry.

And I’m not talking about

things like “raw,” “local”

and “fresh” (well, maybe

a bit about “fresh”); I’m

talking about the completely

meaningless adjectives

and adverbs strewn

about menus and needlessly

peppered into the

speech of general managers

who might otherwise

be decent people with

families.

I know how prevalent

these buzzwords can be

because I edit almost all

of our company’s Dish

restaurant features. And

when I’m not working,

my wife and I love going

out to dinner when we can

find the time and money.

To be clear, I don’t

hate the restaurants that

use these buzzwords. I

understand the competitive

nature of an industry

in which it’s hard to stay

afloat. There are plenty

of fine restaurants with

great employees who

have mouths to feed at

home, too. I get it. That

said, something needs to

be done about it, starting

with these three.

• “Hand-crafted” —

This comes up most in

the world of cocktails.

Bartenders — sorry “mixologists”

— love to tout

the infusions, syrups and

liquor mixtures of which

they are most proud as

“hand-crafted.”

And, I mean, sure. I

watched you make it from

the other side of the bar.

You definitely used your

hands. I’ll applaud you

with mine if that’s what

you want. But part of me

wishes you didn’t feel the

need to remind me that

you used your hands.

Beyond that, what back

there isn’t hand-crafted? I

know the beer came from

a tap. I know the wine was

just poured from a bottle

into my glass. But the

cocktails? I get how this

works.

• “House-made” or

“homemade” — Quick

question: Whose house?

Smart-aleckry aside,

this has become a nuisance

of a byproduct of

the movement to proclaim

everything “fresh.” You

see it most with sauces,

maybe a blend of meat for

a hamburger, or the tasty

bun on which that burger

will temporarily reside.

But you make your

own barbecue sauce

rather than rebottling

Heinz, and you’re proud

of it? Fair enough. It is

pretty good. But here’s

the thing: I assumed you

made everything on-site

— because I didn’t go to

a fast food chain — until

you expended all of that

effort to let me know 15

things on your menu are

“house-made.” Now, I’ve

started to wonder about

the others.

Of greater importance,

as much as you industry

folks love to refer to

restaurant parts in terms

like “front of the house,”

“back of the house,” “Dr.

House” and “House of the

Rising Bun,” to paraphrase

Luther Vandross

(or Papa Roach) your

house is not a home. Your

items are therefore not

“homemade,” as much

as you’d like to tap into

that nostalgia of “how

grandma used to make

it.” Good news: It’s why

I’m paying to eat at your

place. Embrace it.

• Continuing in that

vein, stop with your nonsensical

brags like, “We

don’t even own a refrigerator.”

Am I supposed to

be impressed?

This one comes from

an escalation of the fresh

argument akin to that of

two youths arguing over

whose dad is better.

“My dad’s food is so

fresh; it’s never frozen.”

“Yeah, well my dad’s

food is so fresh it goes

right from the garden to

the table.”

“Oh yeah — well my

dad’s food is so fresh he

doesn’t even own a refrigerator.”

To quote John Oliver,

“[Dramatic pause] Cool.”

Refrigerators are rad.

They help reduce food

waste. They chill things

that need chillin’. And

they do it in a way that

does not necessitate going

out and buying ice to keep

things at a satisfactory

temperature.

Speaking of which, I

put this story in the refrigerator

overnight. It’s what

helped make these disses

so cold.

Poetry in OP

‘The World

Won’t End’

Lin Peterson

Orland Park resident

Contrary to popular belief

The world won’t suddenly

Come to an end.

When fear and greed

Are the only gods,

Our world will slip away

Little at a time,

One more poor compromise,

One more bad decision

One too many grabs

For money and power

Over humanity.

The world won’t suddenly

Come to an end.

It will still be there

Humans will wonder

When humanity ended

But the world will still

revolve.

the Palos Country Club’s

100th anniversary party.

Photo submitted

With a 100th anniversary

approaching, the Palos

Country Club team has

kept busy with remodeling

projects, golf course maintenance

and freshening up

the grounds.

But to celebrate the occasion

properly, they knew

they needed to throw a

party. And what’s a party

without a band?

On the evening of Sunday,

June 30, Steve Richards

and his Neil Diamond

tribute band — which has

graced stages together for

more than 30 years — will

play Palos’ grand ballroom.

Richards and club

staff are promising an

evening guests won’t soon

forget.

“We can’t wait,” said

Jamie Elstner, an assistant

manager at the club. “We

think it’s going to be an

absolute blast.”

Richards, who has

played venues throughout

the Chicago area and beyond

— Wisconsin, Indiana,

Ohio, Pennsylvania

have all been stops — is

planning a two-hour-plus

performance packed with

energy and Diamond authenticity

from start to finish.

“From the second we take

the stage, we’re coming out

gangbusters,” said Richards,

who will be backed by

a six-piece band. “If you’ve

ever seen Neil, you know

he always brings such entertainment,

electricity and

delight to his performances.

That’s what we go for with

every show.”

Tickets — covering dinner

and the concert for $60,

with tax and gratuity included

— are on sale now

at the country club, Elstner

said. She envisions couples

and groups of friends enjoying

the evening together

and anticipates some guests

will make a full day of it by

golfing in the morning or

afternoon.

“We just want everyone

to have a great time,” she

said. “I mean, who doesn’t

love Neil Diamond?”

Diamond’s cross-generational

appeal and soulfulness

are a couple of the

things Richards most enjoys

about performing the

singer’s tracks.

“People have such a

connection with Neil Diamond

that when you’re

performing you can see

that you’re really touching

people,” he said. “It’s

a great feeling; There’s

nothing like it.”

Richards grew up on

Chicago’s Northwest side

and started playing music

around age 15. Getting

the attention of girls was

his initial motivation, he

said with a laugh, but after

a few years performing

he came to appreciate the

craft on a new level.

He started out, like so

many others, covering Elvis,

and he still occasionally

performs as the King.

But with countless Elvis

impersonators — Richards

said there are now 84,000

in the country — and a

newspaper ad seeking a

Neil Diamond tribute artist,

Richard shifted his focus

to the New Yorker who

has had 38 Top 10 songs,

according to Billboard.

Diamond’s “timeless

songs” are “as fresh today

as when they were written,”

Richards said.

“Sweet Caroline” is, no

doubt, always the crowd

favorite. Other show highlights

include “Cracklin’

Rosie,” “Brother Love’s

Traveling Salvation

Song,” “I Am... I Said”

and “America.”

Richards has been performing

in one capacity

or another for roughly

four decades and hooked

up with the earliest members

1984, describing them as a

family that “goes together,

fun together.”

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 items, 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 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

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

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.”

Guillen is back - this time at Gridiron Classic

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

Olympic hero Kendall Coyne is scheduled to be at the 12th Gridiron

Classic. PHOTOS BY JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

Golfing Guillen is returning

to Orland Park.

Former White Sox

player and manager Ozzie

Guillen is making his second

guest appearance at

an Orland Park golfing

event in as many years.

He will play at the 12th

Gridiron Golf Classic,

which takes place at 9:30

a.m. Thursday, June 27, at

Silver Lake Country Club.

Last year, Guillen was

the special guest golfer at

the Disabled Patriot Fund

golf outing, which was

also at Silver Lake.

Dan McMillan, who

helps organize the Gridiron

event, is an executive

at Joe Rizza Porsche, and

Guillen stopped by the Orland

Park facility recently.

“He came in to have service

work done on his car,”

McMillan said. “I started

to talk to him about all the

Cutting

Values

great times we had watching

him and the White Sox

play over the years, including

the World Series year

[2005]. I mentioned to him

about our outing and how

much it would mean to

everyone there to see him

playing with us.

“He thought it was a

great idea, and he agreed

to play. It took a few

weeks to confirm his

schedule. Then, he locked

it in. We are very excited.”

McMillan said he is

will return to be a

part of the festivities. Michael

Schofield is a Super

Bowl-winning offensive

lineman from Orland Park

who is currently with the

Chargers. Coyne Schofield

is an Olympic gold

and silver medal winner

in women’s hockey.

Both are expected to

and the Orland Park

Doede ready for a new chapter at Joliet Central

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

Orland Park’s Jennifer Doede, a former student and longtime employee at Andrew High School, has left the Tinley Park school and is now the

athletic director at Joliet Central. JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

She was an athletic

camper at Andrew High

School in the late 1980s.

She was a student and

athlete at the Tinley Park

school. She was also a

teacher, coach and administrator.

Jennifer Doede was almost

as entrenched at the

school as the Thunderbolt

logo.

Now, she has left the

building.

Doede accepted the position

of athletic director at

Joliet Central High School.

The Orland Park resident

had mixed emotions

about leaving her beloved

school on her last day on

the job on June 5.

“Whenever you are

somewhere for 16 years,

it’s always difficult to

leave,” Doede said. “But

I’m also very excited about

the opportunity to become

an athletic director, especially

at Joliet Central,

because it feels like I am

meant to be there. I really

like the people, and I feel

very comfortable there.

“I have so many memories

here, but this is a new

chapter.”

She left the school

as the division chair of

physical education, health

and driver’s education.

She was far from an administrator

that just sat

behind a desk. She was

out and about, especially

on Friday mornings as a

part of High-Five Friday,

which saw her and other

staff members greeting

students at the lobby with

high-fives. The tradition

started in spring 2018 during

finals week and continued

this school year.

It is a simple and oldfashioned

idea in an age in

which it might not be cool

to enjoy simple and oldfashioned

gestures.

Doede said this was

something important.

“I feel like I am going

to do it anyway,” she said.

“The naysayers who don’t

think it’s cool or don’t

think it will work — that’s

fine. That’s your opinion.

We’re still going to do it.

And if it brings a smile to a

kid’s face, that’s the whole

point of it.

“Some kids come to

school and their home lives

are rough. If they can get

that positive energy and

feel welcome when they

walk in, it’s worth it. Some

kids dart the other way.

They don’t want to give a

high-five. That’s fine, too.

It’s okay. There is so much

negativity and cynicism in

the world that I just choose

to flood it with positivity.

I’m not saying it’s Pollyanna

all the time. But I

don’t choose to go down

the rabbit hole of negativity.”

She is already tweeting

to the world that High-

Five Friday will be a part

of Joliet Central’s culture.

It might be a little different

at the home of the

Steelmen. The high-fives

will have to come after

students are screened by

metal detectors.

Doede, who also taught

and coached at Reavis,

has a friendly and easygoing

personality but is ready

to show a tough-guy side

if needed at a school that

has a reputation of being

rougher around the edges

than Andrew.

“It’s a different school,”

Doede said. “I’ve dealt

with altercations here. I’ve

had altercations at Reavis

where I’ve had to jump

in. There are no worries

with that. Is is a different

socioeconomic area? Yes,

of course. But kids are

kids no matter where you

go. If you build that relationship

with them...I feel

that’s one of my strong

suits. It will be fine. Kids

have a lot more obstacles

these days, especially with

social media. It’s getting

back to that face-to-face

interaction and letting kids

know that we care about

them and want them to

have success and we’re

here to help them.”

Doede will be missed at

Andrew.

“I have known Jen for 15

years, and she has worked

with me on our leadership

team for the past 10 years,”

Andrew Principal Robert

Nolting said. “Jen is a

driving force for our positive

school culture and has

initiated so many things

that help create a sense

of community among our

students. She is a leader

who is well respected by

students, staff, parents and

others within our community.

A few years ago, Jen

wanted to shift her focus

to athletic administration

— I am proud of what

she’s done to prepare for

this challenge and believe

that Joliet Central is going

to benefit from her leadership.”

Doede has seemingly

done it all in education and

this is a challenge she is

embracing.

“I love sports,” the former

volleyball player said.

“I knew eventually this

could be and endgame as

far as a career aspiration

goes. Now, that dream is

becoming a reality.”

Lewis continues to dominate state weightlifting event

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

It was a rare school year

at Sandburg High School

in which neither an individual

or a team won an

Illinois High School Association

state championship.

It has only happened

twice in the 2010s.

But there was still

a student-athlete from

Sandburg who brought

home a state title. Three,

in fact.

Senior-to-be Colin

Lewis claimed three state

titles in weightlifting at

the Special Olympics Illinois

Summer Games,

which took place June

7-9 in the Bloomington-

Normal area. More than

4,000 athletes, 1,600

coaches, 2,000 volunteers

and 3,300 family members/spectators

attend this

event annually.

There is plenty of pageantry

at the event, including

fireworks and parades.

Lewis, a gold medal

winner in the deadlift in

2017 and 2018, won his

third gold medal in that

event with a personalbest

230 pounds. He had

a 310-pound combination

powerlift and 80-pound

bench press to bring two

more medals back to Orland

Park.

“It is never old,” he

said. “It is like winning

the gold for the first time,

every time.”

His coaches, Peggy

Bryce and Ramis Habboub,

have been with

him through three years

and five gold medals,

and have come away impressed.

“Colin has always been

an amazing kid to work

with,” Habboub said.

“He’s competitive, cooperative,

and fun to coach.

I’m always extremely

proud of him, no matter

what, because he always

gives Sandburg his

best shot. Bringing home

some more gold for Sandburg

at state this year is

an outstanding accomplishment.

It has been an

exciting journey for the

Sandburg community and

the Lewis family, whom

have always provided our

Special Olympics with the

greatest support imaginable.”

Having family support

was important to Lewis.

“The most exciting

thing about the meet is

having most of my family

there to watch,” he

said. “My older brother

[Ryan] came in from Ohio

to cheer me on. Plus, both

my brothers were able to

walk in the parade with

me during opening ceremonies.

I especially

loved sharing that with

them.”

Last year, Colin won

the gold in the deadlift

event in what was the

50th anniversary of Special

Olympics. He won

that event lifting 205

pounds.

Lewis also is involved

in several other sports, including

hockey.

He also has served

a member of the PEO-

PEL class, which is a

physical education class

that mixes students with

special needs with other

students looking to pursue

a career path in social services.

Jeff Vorva

Sports Editor

So, how do you feel

about change?

I’m more against

change than for it.

Lately around here, just

the names of stadiums

constantly changing have

me crazed and confused.

Toyota Park is now

SeatGeek Stadium. Standard

Bank Stadium is now

Ozinga Field.

Silver Cross Field was

going to be changed to

Cards Against Humanity

Baseball Place and then it

was changed to Route 66

Stadium. Now, it’s going

to be changed to DuPage

Medical Group Field. The

ballyard is located in Will

County. More confusion.

I think I’ll just get away

from all of this and relax

and take in a concert at

that big theater in Tinley

Park — if I can remember

the name of the dang

place.

For those who follow

high school sports and do

not like change, get ready

to have your world rocked

in two of the Illinois High

School Association’s two

biggest sports in 2021.

That is the year football

conferences will be wiped

out and replaced with

districts. I’ve written all

about it in past columns,

and when they start figuring

out who is going to

play in what class and

what district, I’ll probably

be writing a lot more on it.

Meanwhile, a few

months before that fun

stuff starts, the IHSA will

revamp its state playoff

basketball structure. In the

end, this could be a good

thing.

The IHSA Board of

Directors voted on June

10 to re-jigger the format

to have all four classes

play their championships

on the same weekend.

The IHSA Girls Basketball

State Finals will be

held on a single weekend

in 2021, spanning Thursday,

Friday and Saturday.

The Boys Basketball State

Finals will have the same

Thursday, Friday and Saturday

model, and be held

one week later.

The 2021 IHSA Girls

Basketball State Finals

will be held during Week

35 (March 4-6, 2021) of

the IHSA calendar, which

is currently the weekend

of the Class 3A/4A Girls

Basketball State Finals.

The boys tourney will

take place during Week

36 (March 11-13, 2021),

previously the week of the

1A/2A Boys State Finals.

Each class will continue to

have four state final qualifying

teams, while the

exact number of games

each day and the game

times will be finalized in

the coming months.

That will also mean a

lot of furniture will have

to be moved around with

regionals, sectionals and

supersectionals. The current

finals sites of Redbird

Arena in Normal for the

girls and Carver Arena in

Peoria for the boys could

be changed as well. The

IHSA is taking requests

and proposals from facilities

to host the events in

2021, 2022 and 2023.

“There has been a great

deal of support for this

new tournament format

over the past few months,”

said IHSA Executive Director

Craig Anderson in a

news 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 idea

worth trying.”

The championships

now take place over four

weekends, with the Class

1A and 2A Girls Tournament

and the Class 3A

and 4A Girls Tournament

being held on consecutive

weekends. The next two

weekends then feature the

boys tourney in the same

format.

Illinois State University

has hosted the girls finals

since 1992, while next

March will mark the 25th

Big changes are coming to the state basketball finals in

2021. JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

year the boys tourney will

played in Peoria.

The thorny issue about

the boys tournament is

that it may play in Peoria,

but when Chicago Public

League teams are involved

in the final four, it

plays in front of a lot of

empty seats.

“We obviously have

great relationships with

both venues and host communities,”

Anderson said.

“We fully expect both to

bid once again, but believe

it’s only fair to open up

the process in conjunction

with these format changes

so that they can evaluate if

and how it impacts them.

We are not tied to any host

format. We’d be open to

having both tournaments

at the same venue or

continuing to have them in

separate venues.”

No matter where the

events are held, having

a Saturday with four

championships sounds

like it could be a lot more

special than the current

format. It could have a

more festival quality with

fans and teams from all

over the state gathering

in one spot. It might be

more inviting to casual

fans. And if it is held in

the Chicago area — even

better!

This is one change I can

embrace.

LISTEN UP

“It is never old,It is like winning the gold for the first time,

every time.”
