LGBTQ support group comes to Lockport

Christian Villanueva

Editorial Intern

Lockport and Homer

Glen residents are invited

to attend the first community

chapter meeting

for Parents, Families and

Friends of Lesbians and

Gays or PFLAG on May

25.

The PFLAG organization,

which was founded in

1973 by Jeanne Manford,

is an active organization

with 400 chapters across

the country. 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

affecting 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, that is support, educate

and advocate.” Eckmayer

said. “Those three things

are what we basically

stand for.”

Eckmayer believes educating

others can lessen

the ignorance surrounding

this topic.

The chapter in Homer

Glen and Lockport will

begin having meetings

the last Tuesday of every

month. Meetings are open

to anyone who wants to

support the LGBTQ community,

not just the parents

of members of LGBTQ

community. It will not be

PFLAG at Chicago’s 2018Pride Parade. Photo submitted

mandatory to speak at the

meetings. The goal is to

embrace one another and

be unified as a community.

Meetings are to be held

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

of Glory Lutheran Church,

14719 W. 163rd St., Homer

Glen.

“It does not matter where

you are in your journey,

we will try to help educate

and support people that

come into the meetings

regardless of what part of

their journey they are on,”

Eckmayer said. “Ultimately,

the goal is definitely to

move towards total acceptance

and respect.” There

will be introductions at the

meeting and at some meetings

there will be certain

topics presented and then

discussion.

Lisa O’Malley, a secretary

of the PFLAG organization,

feels PFLAG

is a place the people and

families of the LGBTQ

community can go to for

support. The PFLAG organization

means a great deal

to her as her child is part of

the LGBTQ community.

O’Malley said, “It is

somewhere to go, if you

have no one, the people at

the meetings will support

you.”

She said the organization

means a lot to her and

by being a part of it, she

hopes to be there for kids

and adults who do not have

their families’ support.

Allen Kirkland, treasurer

of the Homer Glen

and Lockport chapter, sees

PFLAG as a great resource

for people of all ages to

be able to come and find

answers. Being part of

the LGBTQ community

himself, Kirkland thinks it

is important for people to

find support and feel accepted

for who they are.

Aside from the meetings,

the chapter also attends

pride parades together.

Other events include

picnics, movie nights and

fundraisers. In addition,

the group and its supporters

will go to Springfield

to advocate for their cause.

“We like to get out there

as much as we can to let

people know that we are

in the area,” Kirkland

said. “We’ve been to the

Mokena fest, the Bolingbrook

pride fest, and plan

to be in the Joliet pride fest

to give out flyers and let

people know that there is a

local place they can go to

for support,” he said, adding

that he feels there is a

large need because people

“really do not have a place

to go where they can feel

comfortable,” and PFLAG

is where kids and parents

of the LGBTQ community

need to be.

Those involved with the

organization said they feel

it has grown and has made

a difference in the lives of

the people involved. The

group’s goal is to one day

achieve complete equality.

graduated in 2005, and

after retiring from his

deputy chief position with

the Lockport Township

Fire Protection District in

August of 2015, John the

elder was approached by

his son with a business

venture.

After graduating from

Southern Illinois University

in 2009, John moved

to Colorado “and it was

then that I got into the craft

beer world with the dream

of starting a brewery one

day and my father and I

discussed the possibility

of starting a craft brewery

out here,” he said. Once he

gained some experience

in the craft beer industry,

he began making his own

non-alcoholic ginger beer

at home.

His father said, “when

we first started, I lived out













Saturday, June 22nd, 10am-5pm & Sunday, June 23rd, 12-5pm

261546




in Colorado with my son

for three months to get

everything set up and every

other month I was going

out to Colorado, now

about every three months

I go out there,” adding, “I

handle the Illinois territory

and I visit places from

Springfield all the way up

to Rockford to downtown

Chicago as a representative

for our company.”

The younger John observed

that many ginger

beers on the market were

lacking natural and real

ingredients, “so we started

making our ginger beer at

home [in Fort Collins, Colorado]

with organic ginger

out of Peru and cane sugar

as well,” he said, adding

that creating ginger beer

was the niche market he

dreamed of finding in the

craft beer industry. From

the beginning, the company

was a joint investment

and now they have an establishment

where they

make the ginger beer in

Loveland, Colorado.

“We incorporated the

business in December

2016 and then got our

building in March of 2017

and we started selling

ginger beer in October of

2017,” the younger said

about the company. “We

started with distribution

in Colorado and then we

developed a partnership

with Heartland Beverage

in Plainfield, Illinois, and

they are our distributor in

Illinois - we launched the

Illinois market about a

year ago in July,” he said.

He credits growing up

with an entrepreneurial

family for giving him the

spirit to take on starting his

own business.

He said that Kure’s Ginger

Beer can now be found

in certain bars, restaurants

and locally owned liquor

stores and grocery stores.

Where Kure’s Ginger

Beer can be bought is

com. The ginger beer can

sports a distinct design of

a golden retriever, modeled

after the Kure’s family

dog, Bailey.

“I think the product is

really going to take off,

everybody who tries our

ginger beer really likes

it,” John’s father said.

“We have trademarked the

name ‘Colorado Mule,’

and we are hoping to soon

have that on the market in

Colorado; the Colorado

market is doing really

great and right now the Illinois

market is doing pretty

well,” he excitedly said.

Overall, the elder John

does not regret coming out

of retirement for this and

said, “It is fun doing this

with my son, and something

I never did before

was sales, having been in

the fire service here, but I

am really enjoying it all,

talking to people and promoting

our product,” he

said. He never imagined

going into the craft beer industry,

but is happy about

it and looks forward to the

future of Kure’s Craft Beer

Company with his son and

business partner.

Old Canal Days brings family, fun and history to the streets of Lockport

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

Old Canal Days attendees line up for some classic

carnival food on Friday night.

Rides, shopping, entertainment,

artwork, historic

re-enactments and more

had families flocking to

Downtown Lockport on

June 13-16 for the Old Canal

Days Festival and Craft

Show.

After the carnival saw a

successful opening night on

Thursday, the Friday festivities

offered all the summer

traditions that families

enjoy at the annual event,

including the ever-popular

parade that was back on

State Street following last

year’s construction-driven

re-route .

“It’s good to have the

parade go through the old

downtown. I am excited

that the parade is back on

State Street because it gives

everybody an opportunity

to see all the planters,

benches and everything,”

said Mayor Steve Streit,

noting that local businesses

are also a State Street highlight.

Annette Parker, executive

director of the Lockport

Chamber of Commerce,

also was excited

that the parade returned

to State Street and that the

lineup featured new additions

along with businesses

and organizations that have

participated for years.

“People are excited,”

Parker said. “It’s one of the

first festivals of the year.

People have been waiting

to get outside, so this is a

great place to do it.”

The parade began with

the Lockport Police Department

and Lockport Township

Fire Protection District

before the City of Lockport,

White Oak Library District

and Lockport Township

Highway Department followed.

The Harvey Blue

Angels, NWCSRA, Radioactive

Rollers, HellsGate

Haunted House, Michelle

Kerfin State Farm, Homer

Tree Service, Lupine Montessori

School, Lockport

Township High School’s

Marching Band and more

also participated in the parade.

Many local businesses

and organizations also supported

Old Canal Days as

sponsors, including Du-

Page Medical Group, Citgo,

Car Care Towing and

St. John Episcopal Church.

Illinois Miss Amazing,

a chapter of the nonprofit

Miss Amazing, Inc., which

provides opportunities

for girls and women with

disabilities to build confidence

in a supportive environment,

was among this

year’s parade participants.

Miss Amazing Advancement

Coordinator Erin Mc-

Carthy explained, “Miss

Amazing was started in

2007 by a 13-year-old that

was a part of the pageant

circuit, and she decided that

she wanted to provide a

platform for girls and women

with special needs to

gain some of the skills that

she was gaining through

pageants.”

Lockport 16-year-old

Mia Santos — one of

this year’s Miss Amazing

Queens, along with Helen

Klipfel, of Homewood –

said the program is so much

fun that she would like to

start her own pageant one

day.

“I like getting my hair

done and my makeup done

and wearing my favorite

gowns. I also like showing

my talents,” Santos said. “I

want to organize my own

pageant because I like to

see the girls’ gowns and the

stage. It’s really amazing.”

Twelve-year-old Lockport

resident Jimmy Fiacchino

and his sister Alyssa,

14, attend Old Canal

Days with their parents every

year. They made sure to

line up on State Street early

to get a good spot to see all

the festivities and collect a

lot of candy.

“I like getting all the candy,”

said Jimmy Fiacchino,

noting that Tootsie Rolls

are his favorite. “I just like

the chocolate about it.”

Alyssa Fiacchino was

looking forward to the

carnival to experience the

rides.

“I like the Zero Gravity

ride,” she said. “It’s fun and

it spins a lot.”

Elsewhere at Old Canal

Days the Friday night

music lineup featured

Poison’d Crue and LAVA

Rock, while Bingo games

also added to the fun. Gallery

Seven invited carnivalgoers

to stop by The Gaylord

Building to see the

latest exhibits and Illinois

State Museum-Lockport

offered extended hours for

its Rocked & Rolled showcase,

which runs through

October.

The Craft Show was

scheduled for Saturday and

Sunday, as were the Lock

Tours and Heritage Village,

which spotlighted the city’s

history.

“We have this historic canal

that opened up the Midwest,”

Streit said. “We have

these wonderful buildings,

the path along it and the

museums. It represents our

moniker: ‘The City of Historic

Pride.’”

Along with honoring history

and showcasing local

businesses, Chamber of

Commerce President Tim

Gaba, of Perfect Shape Fitness,

counts spending time

with the community as one

of the highlights of Old Canal

Days.

“I love how it brings

the community together,”

Gaba said. “It’s really great

to see everybody come out,

have some fun, interact and

be a part of the community.

You get to see people you

haven’t seen in awhile, and

it’s a great opportunity to

meet up with old friends.”

Fricilone announces candidacy for

U.S. Congressional District 3 seat

Will County

Board member

enters race for

Republicans

Thomas Czaja, Contributing

Editor

W i l l

County

Board Min

o r i t y

Leader and

District 7

Member

Mike Fricilone,

of

Fricilone

Homer Glen, announced

June 11 that he will run as

a Republican candidate for

the United States Congressional

District 3 seat currently

held by Rep. Dan

Lipinski, a Democrat.

The Primary Election

will be March 17 next year,

and Fricilone, 64, said he

decided to run because “it

was time for a credible,

honest candidate” on the

Republican ticket, noting

that self-avowed neo-Nazi

and white supremacist Arthur

Jones was the party’s

representative in the same

race for the previous election

cycle last year when

no one else was on the ballot

for the party.

“My experience at Will

County with financing

gives me a good base that

I can represent well,” Fricilone

said.

The politician has

served on the Will County

Board since 2012 and has

been the Finance Committee

Chair and Vice Chair of

the Capital Committee.

He said “the economy

is rocking right now” due

to policies put in place by

the current administration,

and that he plans to help

keep the economy rolling

if elected.

“The thing about this

district is it is good, hardworking

individuals,” Fricilone

said. “When you

work that hard, you need

to keep more of what you

make, not give it away

to people not wanting to

work as hard.”

The Will County Board

member went on to note

that while in his current

role, the Republican caucus

has looked at how

to help people the most,

pointing to the County

having reduced the tax rate

for the past four years.

He said a key was looking

at a budget and being

able to allocate resources

where the biggest bang for

the buck could be had, citing

an example of reducing

overtime in the Will County

Sheriff’s Office and putting

a few more people on

staff, costing less than the

overtime spending.

“We want to make sure

every penny spent by the

government is efficient to

reduce burden,” he said.

“People take a look at a

budget and say how do we

decrease it next year, but I

don’t see anybody looking

at the budget to say what

duplication of effort do we

have and what waste do

we have?”

That call for efficiency

will be a main point of his

campaign platform, also

working to reduce regulations

so small businesses

can grow while avoiding

different departments doing

the same things to reduce

costs.

Other main campaign

focuses will be strengthening

workforce training

opportunities, providing

for veterans and improving

sustainability efforts

in the district, according to

Fricilone.

“I believe in sustainability,”

he said. “I’m a

very green person. I think

we need to have two components,

that things are

financially beneficial, as

well as environmentally

beneficial.”

A County example he

gave in that regard was of

solar energy panels for the

new Will County Courthouse

that will provide 7

percent of the energy for

the building, showing they

make sense from both an

environmental and financial

standpoint.

As he is just starting

out in the early portion of

the race, he plans to start

reaching out to friends

and organizations in different

communities across

the district and start having

events and meet and

greets.

He said it was a combination

of his own interest

in running and others encouraging

him to jump in

the race that helped him

make the final decision to

run.

“People in the party are

excited about the fact of

having somebody credible

for a change, somebody

they can get behind,” Fricilone

said.

Fricilone is the executive

director of Midwest

Office Interiors in Woodridge

and has been involved

in community service,

including serving as

president of the Lockport

Township High School

Foundation, a member of

the Finance Committee

fricilone

From Page 8

at his parish, St. Bernard

Catholic Church in Homer

Glen, being an Executive

Board member with the

Children Advocacy Center

and as former vice president

of the Order Sons of

Italy in America.

The U.S. Congressional

District 3 race has drawn

considerable attention on

the local and national level

as of late, with Lipinski,

known for traditionally

being a more conservative

member in his party,

securing 51 percent of the

vote in the 2018 primary to

defeat Marie Newman, a

progressive who is already

in the running to challenge

him again in 2020.

“I don’t know what’s

going to happen on the

other side,” Fricilone said

of the Democratic race. “I

can’t guess which person

will be the victor on that

side of the aisle.”

Fricilone added that

with Lipinski and Lipinski’s

father, Bill, holding

the congressional seat between

the two of them for

decades, change would be

good, as there continues to

be a lot of change going on

in the country.

The Lockport Legend

reached out to a Lipinski

aide for comment on Fricilone

throwing his name

into the ring.

“Right now, I’m focused

on taking care of the everyday

concerns of people

in the district and working

to deliver relief for

middle-class families with

better job opportunities,

improved infrastructure,

more affordable healthcare

and college education,

safer gun laws, and lower

taxes,” Lipinski said, according

to the aide.

In November of last

year, Lipinski defeated

Jones soundly, securing

73 percent of the vote. In

what has been a blue collar,

Democrat-siding district,

the outcome of the

current race remains anybody’s

guess.

Steve Balich, a longtime

friend and Republican

ally of Fricilone and

fellow District 7 Will

County Board member,

said he believes Fricilone

will win the 3rd District

race whether facing off

against Lipinski, Newman

or someone else.

“Mike is one of the best

people I’ve ever met with

finding ways to fund projects

without raising taxes,”

Balich said.

He estimated that he and

Fricilone agree “probably

95 percent of the time,”

and that his fellow Will

County Board member for

District 7 is “one of the

most-level headed guys

you could meet who is

able to see two sides of the

coin.”

Balich said those in his

party are concerned about

Newman’s progressive

background and Lipinski

also moving more to the

left upon facing pressure

from inside his party.

“It’s a good thing we

have a real, viable choice

this time,” Balich said. “I

believe [Fricilone] will

make a real good representative.

I’ll be out there

working my butt off for

him [on the campaign

trail].”

For Fricilone, another

motivating factor are his

grandchildren and future

generations.

“I look through the eyes

of my grandkids and wonder

what this country will

look like when they are

in their teens and in high

school, going to college,

making sure there are opportunities

for them, instilling

in them hard work

and the American dream,”

Fricilone said. “… What

is the future for them and

helping them benefit in the

long term.”

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, about 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 accident.

Three and a half

years ago, I knew

almost nothing

about Lockport.

I grew up in nearby

Tinley Park, but didn’t

venture this far west

except for a baseball

game or two when I was

younger. But that all

changed in September of

2015 when I accepted the

position of Lockport Legend

and Homer Horizon

assistant editor.

From Day 1, I was

immersed in both towns,

learning the ins and outs

of local politics, covering

area sports teams and

everything in between.

Then, about two and a

half years ago, I was

promoted to editor of

The Legend. The promotion

came with a heap of

responsibility I wasn’t

sure I was ready for at the

time, but I am glad that I

accepted the job offer.

Serving as editor of

The Lockport Legend was

scary at first, but with the

support of the community

and my coworkers here

at 22nd Century Media, I

was able to become comfortable

in the position

and produce a newspaper

of which I was proud. I

have learned more about

Lockport over the last few

years than I ever could

have imagined, and have

experienced profound

personal growth, so it

isn’t without sadness that

I let you all know that this

is my last issue as editor

of The Legend.

I have accepted a position

with another company

and am excited for

my future, but I would be

remiss not to thank everyone

in the Lockport community

for helping me

maximize the potential of

this newspaper over the

last few years. There have

been too many people

who have made a positive

impact on me individually

in my three-plus years

in Lockport to thank

everyone individually, but

suffice to say that if we

crossed paths in even the

smallest way, I valued our

interaction and appreciated

your time.

I have written dozens

of stories during my time

at the paper that I wasn’t

the most enthused about

when first hearing my assignment,

but after meeting

the thoughtful and

quirky people involved,

I found myself immersed

in the topic. I credit the

people of Lockport and

their passion and creativity

for making my job

enjoyable and filling the

pages of The Legend with

colorful and inspirational

stories.

When I was first offered

this job as a recent

college graduate, I was

focused on getting my

professional career started

and didn’t necessarily

expect to build a strong

bond with the community.

But here I sit, nearly four

years later, writing my

last column as editor of

The Legend, having met

so many inspirational

people in Lockport and

subsequently building a

relationship with the community

that won’t soon

fade.

My time serving as

editor of The Legend

was extremely special to

me as you all helped me

grow tremendously as

a person, and I hope in

the meantime I was able

to produce a newspaper

that kept you all wellinformed

and entertained.

I wish nothing but the

best to all of you, and if

you see me around town,

don’t be afraid to say

hello.

Lockport local organizes patriotic community concert

Mary Compton

Freelance Reporter

You can call Dr. Reno

Caneva Lockport’s Uncle

Sam.

True to his country,

Caneva is all about patriotic

music. On Saturday,

June 15, Caneva’s dream

to bring the community

together to sing patriotic

songs happened as Canal

Days opened.

“I am from a music family,”

Caneva said. “When I

was young, I learned how

to sing then continued to

learn music. In first grade

I took piano lessons at St.

Dennis, then continued my

music through high school.

When I went to medical

school it just continued.”

The retired podiatrist has

always served Lockport.

The 83-year-old has organized

mini musical concerts

featuring members of

his church Shepherd of the

Hill Lutheran Church and a

few community members.

He organized a 9/11 American

Freedom program in

2016, and then-Gov. Bruce

Rauner attended. Then, in

2014, Reno organized a

flag day concert.

“I’ve composed about 60

pieces of music,” Caneva

said. “I’ve never used all

of the pieces. I even have a

song that I wrote for when

I pass on. When my wife

passed, I used that song at

her funeral.”

He explained he couldn’t

play the song because of

his tears. Three grandsons

played his piece.

“It’s one of those moments

where I can remember

that and go to sleep and

sing the music, which helps

out,” he said.

Caneva also was choir

director at Shepherd of

the Hill Lutheran Church.

When he has his patriotic

programs, rehearsals are

always held at the church.

One of Caneva’s sons,

Dwayne, traveled to Lockport

to witness his father

organize another community

concert. Watching his

father practice the guitar

and direct the members, put

a smile on his face.

“The family has been

involved in music a few

generations,” Dwayne said.

“We are also a very patriotic

family. We have a lot to be

thankful for, we love America.

My dad likes to express

that in music and getting the

community together.”

While community

members were practicing,

Dwayne’s sister Renee,

was setting up a speaker

and chairs at Lockport Central

Square. As Boy Scout

Troop 50 from Lockport

brought the American flag,

the choir began singing.

Mayor Steven Streit

thanked Caneva and spoke

to the crowd that gathered

in the town square about

how symbols bring emotion.

“Our flag is a powerful

symbol,” Streit said, adding,

“as a graphic designer

I can appreciate the colors,

the purity of the white, the

symbolism of the stars.

It’s also what that symbol

means.”

Streit spoke to the crowd

about the flag symbolizing

a nation to be proud of.

“It’s about a nation that

for over 250 years has

been a place that collects

all the folks of this world.

It’s a very unique and special

nation that has absolutely

changed the course

of human history,” he said,

thanking everyone for

coming out to the concert.

Before the mayor left

the stage of the gazebo, he

turned to thank the man

who has a love for singing

and a love for his home,

Lockport.

“I want to especially

thank Reno for organizing

this,” Streit said. “Whatever

Reno puts together,

whether it’s writing a book

or organizing this coalition

of singers is always a success.

I want to thank Reno

for what he does here. If

there is a few candidates

that vibe for the name of

Mr. Lockport, Reno certainly

is in the running.”

Dressed in red, white

and blue, the singers belted

out patriotic songs such as

“Yankee Doodle Dandy”

and “God Bless America,”

as well as every service

song.

Marge Otis, of Lockport,

was part of the choir and

was proud to stand in the

gazebo and sing the patriotic

songs.

“I’ve done this three

times with Reno,” she explained.

“It’s important to

teach our kids of the love of

our country and the songs.

I would have loved to see

300 people here.

“This is something we

should do every year. This

is our country, we should

be proud if you don’t love

your country, what do you

have?”

As everyone was filing

out of Lockport’s Central

Square, Caneva’s smile

couldn’t be missed.

“This went very well,”

he said. “I’m so proud of

the people that came and

sang from their hearts.

“I also want to send good

thoughts to Jim Stephenson.

He had a stroke yesterday

and wasn’t able to play

the organ. He’s been so

dedicated to taking part in

these. I hope we can keep

this going.”

Mayor Steven Streit (left) thanked Dr. Reno Caneva from Lockport for organizing the

Flag Day community concert held at Lockport Square. The patriotic concert opened

Canal Day festivities on Saturday, June 15.

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.”

Exp.

Kyle Langellier will be a

senior at Lockport Township

this fall and is on the

boys track and field team.

What was finishing in

fifth in the 400-meter

dash and helping the

1,600-meter relay to a

second-place finish at

the State Finals like?

It was actually the second-straight

year that I was

All-State in two events.

The previous season, I was

on both of our Top 10 relay

teams (800 and 1,600).

But this one was better

because I never thought

that I’d get All-State in an

individual event. I thought

those events would be too

fast, too competitive. But

this was a really great confidence

builder going into

next season.

Were you more

excited to place fifth

in the 400?

No. Actually, I was more

excited to finish strong and

get second in the 1,600.

That’s because one of my

best friends is Ray Holland.

He was a senior and

the third man in the relay,

and it was his last-ever

race. Being the anchorman,

I wanted to finish the race

strong for him, and I did.

Down the stretch, did

you hear the crowd

cheering?

No, especially for that

race. I wasn’t hearing a

sound. I just tune everything

out during a race. I

was thinking to just drive

my legs and go as fast as

I can.

How did you get

involved in running?

I remember that in fifth

or sixth grade, I would be

faster than everyone else. At

Homer Jr. High, you can’t

do track until seventh grade.

So I first started doing cross

country in sixth grade. But

the first time I ever ran the

100 in seventh grade, I ran

11.5 seconds and broke the

school record.

What is your favorite

event to run?

Starting my sophomore

year, it became the 400,

without a doubt. The 100 is

too quick to enjoy. The last

100 of the 400 is the worst.

Your legs are screaming,

but you go on adrenaline,

and it’s the best feeling

when you keep going and

finish strong.

What are you doing

training-wise this

summer break?

I do sprint work two

days a week, and I will

start running cross county

[this] week. I will be running

cross country again in

the fall.

What do you do to get

fired up before a race?

Actually, I normally

have to calm myself down,

especially in the 400. I

have to listen to mellow

music like Frank Sinatra to

calm myself down. Then

in the 1,600 relay, Michael

Walkosz goes first in the

event. When I’m about to

get the baton passed on to

me as the final runner, he’s

22nd Century Media File

Photo

now on the side. He looks

at me, and that’s all I need

to see for the final stretch.

What have you

learned from Lockport

track sprint coach

Robert Beach?

He taught me the proper

running form. He’s the

one who taught me about

the 400-meter technique.

Physical-wise, I owe it all

to coach Beach.

Are you planning to

run in college?

Yes, that’s my plan. I

got a few more emails and

calls after this season’s

state tournament. I’m going

to go into writing and

journalism. The distance

doesn’t matter.

What is the best thing

about being an athlete

at Lockport?

I love the family feel.

Now that I’ve completed

my junior season in high

school, there’s even more

of a relationship between

the athletes and coaches.

I’m so happy to have

these guys as coaches, and

there’s a real brotherhood

between the athletes out

there.

Lockport’s Fontanetta competes at Great Lakes Games

Nick Frazier

Contributing Sports Editor

There were plenty of feelgood

stories to go around on the

North Shore this past weekend,

including one for the Porters.

That’s because the Great

Lakes Adaptive Sports Association,

or GLASA, held its annual

Great Lakes Games at Lake Forest

High School and Niles West

High School. LFHS hosted archery,

powerlifting, boccia and

swimming on Friday, June 14,

and Saturday, June 15, while

Niles West was home to the track

meet on Sunday, June 16.

The Great Lakes Games is a

multi-sport regional competition

for athletes with a physical

disability or visual impairment.

Over 230 athletes registered to

participate this year, including

United States paralympians attempting

to break world records.

Lockport resident Ellie Fontanetta

took part in the swim meet

at the LFHS pool on Saturday.

The 15-year-old started her day

by swimming the mixed 50-meter

breaststroke in 2:10.68, good

for fifth-best in her heat. She

then finished fourth in her heat

in the mixed 50-meter freestyle

with a time of 1:35.88.

Fontanetta is a member of

the Lockport High School girls

swim team. She was the school’s

first athlete with disabilities to

win a state medal for swimming.

It has been 20 years since

GLASA Executive Eirector Cindy

Housner founded the organization.

“I had worked with athletes

previously with physical or visual

disabilities, I just saw so much

the importance of sports and how

it affects everyday life in regards

to self-esteem and independence,”

Housner said. “[GLA-

SA] provides opportunities for

travel, and for our athletes to

be successful in school, college

and go on to lead their projected

life. There wasn’t an agency in

this area, that was doing it, that’s

kind of why it prompted me to

start the organization.”

Marilyn Wieland has been a

member of GLASA’s board of

directors for over 12 years now.

She also is an Illinois paralympic

swimming official and served as

director of the swim meet.

“We’ve been doing it for

years, we love it,” Wieland said

of the meet. “We love to see the

kids smiles on their face, we actually

do other regional meets

and junior nationals that are up

in Minnesota this year.”

Housner’s daughter swam at

Lake Forest High School, and

the organization has a good relationship

with Scouts girls swimming

and diving coach Carolyn

Grevers. The Great Lakes

Games’ swim meet has been at

LFHS for 10 years now, bringing

a smile to those who take part

and creating lifelong memories

for the athletes.

“The entire school support

staff, [LFHS athletic director]

Tim Burkhalter, his coaches and

his staff and across the board

have been so extremely supportive,”

Housner said. “They truly

believe in our missions and being

inclusive. It’s one of our strongest

partners, we’re very appreciative

for the partnership that we have in

Lake Forest High School.”

Ellie Fontanetta participated in three events for the Porters at state this past season in the Athletes

with Disabilities category, taking ninth there in the 50-yard freestyle, eighth in the 100-yard freestyle

and sixth in the 100-yard breaststroke. 22nd Century Media File Photo

there.”

Jake Kaczmarek is another returning

guard that will be on this

season’s upcoming team.

“We started playing shoot

games at Plainfield East,” Kaczmarek

said of the previous weekend

when the Porters played

games on June 7 and 8. “This is

just good experience for guys to

get varsity experience. A lot of

us have been playing together

for four years. We want to make

sure the new guys know we want

to be a winning program that’s

tough to beat.”

Donny Wallace, another returning

guard, also agreed.

“You get to see your role for

the upcoming year,” Wallace

said of the summer league. “You

get to see all the hard work in

the offseason pay off. Something

we’d like to do is play better at

the end of the season. We want

to be on that consistent winning

level.”

Last season Lockport got out

to starts of 7-2 and 11-5 before

losing 8-of-11, including its last

four of the year, to end the season.

“We have a lot of guys that

can shoot and some big kids

with size and length,” said Hespell,

who was happy with how

the team did the week before at

Plainfield East. “We have some

inexperience factor as far as varsity

play. It’s just a matter of putting

the pieces together.”

Boys Basketball

Porters work on their game at Ray Milnes Summer Shootout

1st and 3

Porters boys

basketball putting

in work this

summer

1. Plenty of practice

LTHS boys basketball

recently played

six games in two

days on Friday, June

14, and Saturday,

June 15, at the Ray

Milnes Summer

Shootout, held at

Stagg High School

in Palos Hills.

2. Gaining confidence

The Porters went

5-1 in those six

games played at

the shootout, beating

Leyden, Mt.

Carmel, T.F. South,

Minooka and Oak

Forest. In their one

loss, which was to

Hillcrest, the teams

were tied with two

minutes left to play.

3. Growing together

The Porters look

to improve on

last year’s 14-13

record, their first

winning season in

seven years.

Just like in the past, the

Lockport Township boys

basketball team wants

winning seasons to become

the norm.

Coming off their first

winning season in seven

years, the Porters know

that the building blocks to

doing that don’t start on

the first day of practice in

November, they start now.

That’s why Lockport has

a busy summer schedule

of basketball. That showed

again last weekend with

six games in two days at

the Ray Milnes Summer

Shootout, which was held

at Stagg High School in

Palos Hills.

According to Stagg

boys basketball coach,

Marty Strus, Milnes was

a volunteer coach at Stagg

through the 2017 season.

He also helped run the

annual summer shootout

there. So when Milnes

passed away in March,

Struss and Stagg decided

to rename the shootout after

him.

The Porters were glad

to be a part of it and even

more happy to go 5-1 over

the two days at Stagg.

Especially since eight seniors,

including six that

played key roles, graduated

from last seasons

squad, which finished 14-

13.

“It’s like a blank slate

this year,” Lockport boys

Tommy Ferriter is one of the returning players for the Porters looking to continue building off the improvements

made last season. 22nd Century Media File Photo

basketball coach Brett

Hespell said. “But I’m encouraged.

Our freshman

team last season was 23-3

and our sophomores were

16-11. I feel like we raised

the bar last year and I can

feel it. The kids understand

what we have to do.”

Lockport kicked off the

shootout on Friday, June

14 with a 53-42 win over

Leyden. That was followed

by a 73-34 mashing

of Mt Carmel and then the

only loss of the tourney,

a 65-55 one to a talented

Hillcrest team. Lockport

led by 10 in the second

half and the game was tied

54-54 with 2:00 to play.

But the Hawks closed it

out on an 11-1 run.

Then on Saturday, June

15, the Porters defeated

T.F. South 43-32, Minooka

53-32, and toppled what

Hespell called “a really

talented and aggressive”

Oak Forest team, 58-53.

The four returners from

last years team are all seniors

now. They are ready

to take the reins this season.

“I think last season was

a culture change,” said

Tommy Ferriter, who started

much of last season as a

guard/forward. “Now we

are in transition of being a

true winning program. The

seniors from last year set

that up as a good example.

It’s about leadership and

character.”

Plus summer is an opportunity

to work on new

things with new teammates.

“It’s good to work on

new things with new teammates,”

guard Tim DiCristofano

said. “In a shootout

like this [at Stagg] you get

a good feel of upcoming

opponents and what they

are going to run. Then we

go to Grand Valley State

University [this] weekend

for a tournament there.

That’s great team bonding

in the 3-days/2-nights

Please see basketball, 38
