Rare cars the highlight of Tinley’s Cruise Nights

Karina Lopez, Editorial Intern

Brad Nelson, a car enthusiast

and owner of a

1968 Volkswagen double

cab pick-up, enjoyed

showing his car at Cruise

Nights in downtown Tinley

Park June 11. He frequently

attends car shows

and cruise nights in surrounding

areas.

“I don’t go for the trophies,

I go to talk to [the]

people and they ask me

questions,” Nelson said.

The Orland Park resident

has owned his rare

neon green Volkswagen

for four years and, along

with himself, the car has a

story of its own.

The particular model he

owns was not imported to

the United States, Nelson

said, so a man from England

who had the car, sold

it to someone in Vegas

who then put it up for sale.

Within two hours of the

car being listed, Nelson

put an offer down.

During Cruise Nights on

June 11, Nelson was not

the only car owner with a

rare vehicle.

Husband and wife Ken

and Mary Jo Moreikis

showed their rare 1970

Plymouth Cuda 440-6

pack four speed. According

to Ken, this type of vehicle

is one of 1,000 ever

made. Ken bought and restored

it himself down to

the nuts and bolts.

“When I was 15 years

old, I wanted to buy a

black Plymouth Cuda,”

Ken said. “So 50 years

later I spent many dollars

to get my ’70 Cuda.”

While people come

to show off their cars,

friends Linda Belcher

and Valerie Babka enjoy

walking around to see the

cars. Belcher enjoys the

New and classical cars line up along Oak Park Avenue

June 11 for Cruise Night.

big ’50s cars, while Babka

keeps an eye out for the

late ’60s, early ’70s cars.

On that Tuesday evening,

they looked at the beauty

of the cars, and talked

to car owners to learn

about the time and effort

they put into restoring

them.

“I enjoy looking at the

cars, I enjoy the people

watching and just the

businesses that open their

doors to everybody,” Babka

said.

Tinley Park native Harold

Larimore has been

bringing his 1961 Chevy

Impala Super Sport to

cruise nights for the last

several years and said he,

too, enjoys looking at other

cars.

He has owned the Impala

for over 12 years

and has redone every mechanical

part but chose to

keep the original black

color. The Impala is rare,

according to Larimore,

which he said is because

of its year.

“I enjoy looking at [other]

cars; I get ideas from

other cars.” Larimore said.

Cruise Nights kicks off

at 5 p.m. every Tuesday

along Oak Park Avenue.

The Village starts closing

off streets at 4:30 p.m.

Along with seeing the

cars, people can enjoy

drinks, food and a live DJ

presented by the VFW. Jeff

Kennedy, bar manager for

the VFW and Tinley resident,

said they are one of

the original sponsors of

Cruise Nights.

“I like the community

involvement and that everyone

is out there enjoying

it,” Kennedy said.

Cruise Nights has been

an annual event for over

10 years and Vicki Sanchez,

special event coordinator

for the Village, said

she hopes it continues. Approximately

200 vehicles

came out to the June 11

Cruise Nights with a mix

of returning vehicles and

new ones. There aren’t

weekly themes so all cars

(above), watches the crowd during Cruise Nights.

Ken (left) and Mary Jo Moreikis stand in front of their rare black 1970 Chevy Cuda on

June 11. Photos by Karina Lopez/22nd Century Media

are welcome.

“The downtown is the

heart of Tinley Park and

that’s why we try to keep

the majority, if not all of

815-464-1110

the events that we plan in

the downtown,” Sanchez

said.

The event is to run

through the end of August.

TPHS students, teachers moved by promise-keeping initiative

Will O’Brien

Freelance Reporter

In March, teachers

Maureen Koce and Rebecca

Haustein attended

a conference and walked

away so inspired that they

returned to Tinley Park

High School with a simple-but-radical

idea: Getting

students and teachers

to make promises — and

keep them.

The duo, along with

an enthusiastic group of

about 10 students, started

the school’s Because I

Said I Would program

with the goal of improving

the school, one promise

at a time.

Because I Said I Would

is an international nonprofit

with a straightforwardyet-profound

mission: Improving

humanity through

accountability. The organization

was started by Alex

Sheen in 2012 after he delivered

the eulogy for his

father, a man known for

keeping his word.

Sheen, on that day,

handed out for the first

time what went on to become

known as Promise

Cards — little reminders

to follow through. His

message has blossomed

since, reaching a global

audience across more than

153 countries.

In March, he just so

happened to be addressing

a conference crowd in

Tinley Park.

“We were both crying

at the end of it,” Koce, a

math teacher, said. “He

was so motivating. His

story was incredible.”

Moved to action, Koce

and Haustein, a family and

consumer sciences teacher,

immediately brought the

concept to Theresa Nolan,

the TPHS principal. Nolan

gave them her blessing, and

things took off from there.

Pictured are (left to right) Rebecca Haustein, Mya Williams, Brooklin Brumfield, Ella Bloom, Sandra Torres, Maddie McManigal, Jordan Exline,

Sarria Brannon, Gianna Ulcigrai, Caitlin Gee, Alexa Simonsis and Maureen Koce, the teachers and students who organized Tinley Park High

School’s Because I Said I Would campaign. Photos submitted

The pair 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. Even

students and teachers who

weren’t directly involved

in the effort started asking

for Promise Cards, Haustein

said.

“They were really good

Please see because, 7

Pictured is the mural of Promise Cards getting started. Students and teachers were encouraged to write promises

on the cards, which were then displayed as a tree-shaped mural outside the cafeteria at Tinley Park High School.

about spreading the word,”

Koce said.

After a week of distributing

and collecting cards,

the club organized the hundreds

they received in a

mural just outside the cafeteria,

a heavily trafficked

area where the cards could

be read and have an impact.

Promises made by students

and teachers ran the

gamut, from being a better

friend to graduating high

school early, and from

making varsity next year to

repaying their parents sacrifices.

“All of them were so

genuine,” said Sandra Torres,

a rising junior and one

of the students involved in

the Because I Said I Would

effort. “They were really

sweet.”

The Because I Said I

Would concept is powerful,

Torres said, because


it’s based on small changes

that, when multiplied, can

make a big impact.

“It’s just a little card, a

little promise,” she said.

“It’s tiny but it matters.”

Torres said she vowed to

make better choices. The

promise-making exercise,

she said, brought students

together in a way other

school activities don’t and

likely healed some friendship

that may have frayed

over the school year, which

ended Wednesday, June 5.

“It was really nice how

many people actually

wanted to be a part of it,”

she said.

Haustein was also

pleasantly surprised with

the students’ level of participation,

noting that the

prevalence of social media

makes many teens hesitant

to fully express themselves.

“I would have never

imagined that they’d be

willing to be so open and

write some of the things













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





they did, knowing these

cards would be on display,”

she said. “I was amazed

how in-depth some of their

promises were.”

Haustein, Koce and Torres

all said they’d like to

see the program return in

the fall. Haustein envisions

students making promises

at the beginning of

the school year, or English

teachers using the cards

as a writing exercise. She

would also like to turn this

into a full-fledged club.

In whatever capacity Because

I Said I Would continues

at Tinley, all three

agreed it’s already made a

strong impression that will

stay with them — and everyone

at TPHS — for a

long time.

“Tinley Park is just a

great school,” Haustein

said. “The faculty, administration

— every here is like

a family. The more we act

like family, the more it rubs

off on students.”

FROM THE NEW LENOX PATRIOT

Library board member

leaves after over 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.

“I’m very proud, and I

was just one little bit, but

I’m very proud I was a part

of getting this referendum

passed and getting this

building built,” Broccolo

said. “I think, if it’s not

the best looking building

in Will County, it’s pretty

close. I know I’m prejudice,

but I think it’s a beautiful

building.”

Broccolo lost the first

time he ran for a board position

and he did not think

it would bother him much,

but it did, he said.

Part of what Broccolo

was known for was his

sense of humor, so that

shined through at times.

The second time he ran

unopposed and told Madden

if he somehow lost that

time, he was going to put a

“for sale sign” in front of

his house because he could

not be a “nobody.” And

that was the start of a 34-

year tenure.

FROM THE 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 three artists

as well as two honorable

mentions.

Since forming in 2018,

The Frankfort Arts Association

has worked to bring

area artists of all mediums

together. The Village of

Frankfort — a major sponsor

of Art on the Green —

handed off its Fine Arts

Fair to the association

to host the renamed, revamped

event for the first

time this year.

New Lenox ceramicist

Nicholas S. Eckmayer

combines originality and

functionality with his creations.

“Everything is functional

ceramics, and I try my

best to make each piece

individual and unique, just

like a person,” Eckmayer

said. “The work itself is

all wheel-thrown, and then

it’s either altered in some

way at that time or when

I fire it to a certain bisque

temperature. Then, it’s

glazed in a way that can’t

be duplicated.”

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Park district rolls out

‘Unplug Mokena’ campaign

Mokena Community

Park District wants residents

to disconnect from

the digital and power up

for playtime this summer

so that people can spend

more time experiencing

the great outdoors that is,

frequently, right in their

own backyards.

It’s all part of the park

district’s Unplug Mokena

campaign this summer.

The topic was featured at

Mokena Chamber of Commerce’s

monthly meeting

June 11.

Mike Selep, the park

district’s executive director,

said residents should

put away their phones,

step away from the computers

and laptops, turn off

the gaming systems, and

ask themselves, “What’s

one thing you really liked

to do as a kid?” and then

go do it.

“The thing that I think

we have the biggest challenges

with is that we sit.

We sit a lot,” Selep said.

“We sit at our desks. We sit

at our computers. We sit at

home and watch TV. We’re

not really up and about as

much as we used to be.”

Selep cited the national

rise in obesity and the

health risks associated

with it as the main danger

in not spending 30 minutes

a day of moderate activity,

such as taking a walk in

the park, taking one’s children

or grandchildren to

the playground and engaging

in some playtime with

them, or getting together

with friends for a round

of disc golf or some other

light sporting activity.

The park district has a

full lineup of summer activities

planned for the Village.

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, 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.

The accident remains

under investigation.

No tickets had been issued

initially following the

accident.

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 currently

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

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,” Eckmayer said. “That

is support, educate and advocate.

Those three things

are what we basically

stand for. 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., Homer Glen.

Celebrating the Diamond

anniversary: Palos Country

Club ringing in 100 years

with tribute act

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 well

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.

Tickets — covering dinner

and the concert for $60,

with tax and gratuity included

— are on sale now

at the country club, 13100

Southwest Highway, Elstner

said. The dinner starts

at 5 p.m., while the show

starts at 6:30 p.m.

I’ll be the first to admit

that fall is by far my

favorite season. I am

definitely a cool weather

type gal, and while the

weather is so beautiful

then, there’s no doubt a

plethora of things to do in

the summertime. Now that

school is out and summer

has began, there’s so many

great things to do during

this time of year that you

certainly can’t enjoy any

other time.

have an emergency escape

plan which allows us

to know if everyone has

gotten out of the building

safely in the event of

a fire.”

Janozik added that when

it comes to fire safety, it is

always good to have classes

like these available as a

reminder of what to do in a

fire emergency.

“No matter your age,

public outreach is so important,”

he said.

St. Coletta’s of Illinois,

celebrating its 70th year,

250 adults and children

with intellectual and developmental

disabilities

through educational, vocational

and residential

weeks in the community

calendar on Page 2, we’ve

listed the various happenings

around town that you

should be sure not to miss.

Our news cover story this

week on Page 3 highlights

one of the biggest events,

Cruise Nights that runs

through the end of August.

Cruise Nights is held

every Tuesday evening

along Oak Park Avenue.

There also is music to

enjoy at The Band Shell

every Thursday evening,

Benches on the Avenue

along Oak Park Avenue,

the Farmer’s Market on

Saturday mornings and

Music in the Plaza every

Saturday evening. Oh, and

don’t forget the Downtown

spot, because Tinley Park

has got it all.

Of course, as an adult,

I don’t get a “summer

break,” and man do I miss

that. But regardless, there’s

so many awesome things

to do after work, since

most of these events start

between 5-7 p.m. After a

long and stressful day at

work, what better way to

relax than to bring your

family (or hey, just yourself)

and enjoy the fresh

air, listen to music, see

classical cars, buy some

fresh veggies or just take a

stroll downtown to see the

benches that were designed

by local artists, including

Tinley Park residents.

Now my personal favorite

thing to do is take walks

around my town and soak

up the sun and the nice

breeze. I get quality exercise

and can enjoy nature,

what’s better than that? My

community also has a car

show every week, which

I absolutely love. Even if

you aren’t a car enthusiast,

it’s so neat to see unique

and older cars.

So whatever it is that

you enjoy, take full advantage

of it this summer

because before you know

it, fall will be approaching,

which hey, I certainly

don’t mind.

Hailstorm Brewing rings in five years of beer

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

In honor of five years

of brewing beers and connecting

with customers in

Tinley Park and beyond,

Hailstorm Brewing Company

invited the community

to an anniversary party

Saturday, June 15, at its

tap room located at 8060

186th St.

“We are lucky to be in

Tinley Park with great

people who appreciate

great quality beer. We’re

very happy to have been

able to do this for five

years and look forward

to 50 more,” owner Chris

Schiller said. “I love our

customers’ dedication and

devotion to the quality and

art of craft beer.”

Although the event

didn’t start until noon,

Hailstorm’s biggest fans

started lining up at 5 a.m.

– and even earlier – in

order to secure bottles of

the special release Vlad

vs. Zombie vs. Shark. The

imperial stout brewed onsite

was limited to 1,500

bottles of the original and

1,500 bottles of a maplevanilla

variety.

Owner and Head Brewer

Brandon Banbury explained

that Vlad vs. Zombie

vs. Shark builds on the

success of Hailstorm’s traditional

Vlad.

“Everybody’s in line for

the two beers that we’re

releasing today,” Banbury

said. “It’s a beer we last

released in 2016. It’s a big

18 percent alcohol imperial

stout. It’s based off our

Vlad – which is a beer we

have year-round – and we

release a different variant

of that beer every month.

This is a bigger version of

that beer and we also have

one with maple and vanilla

today.”

David Erickson woke

up before sunrise to drive

from his home in Gary,

Indiana to secure a good

spot in line and purchase

some Vlad vs. Zombie vs.

Shark.

“It’s a beer for people

who like stouts. It’s

an amazing barrel-aged

stout,” Erickson said.

“It’s an excellent beer that

hasn’t been brewed since

2016 and I got here early

because I wanted to make

sure that I for sure got my

bottles. The quality and

consistency are great. It’s

a very good non-adjunct

barrel-aged beer.”

Lockport residents Denver

Worker and Brian West

also were on site early to

pick up a few bottles of the

release.

“I love to support them

and I’m really excited for

their anniversary,” said

Worker, who stocks beers

from Hailstorm at his Mokena

shop, Crafted 1979.

“They’re doing some of

the best stuff in the south

suburbs of Chicago.

They’re killing it and they

do some incredible things.

They’re a lot of fun and a

great group of people.”

West added that the taproom

is a go-to spot for

great company and even

better craft beer.

“They always have good

beer on tap,” West said.

“Their beer is fire. It’s really

good.”

As beer enthusiasts

waited for the noon release

of the specialty

Vlad, The Chicago Donut

Company offered a slew

of breakfast treats from its

food truck.

Hailstorm Brewing Co. Owner and Head Brewer Brandon Banbury puts the finishing

touches on the anniversary party “What’s On Tap” sign.

After Hailstorm fans received

their Vlads – which

sold out a little after 1:15

p.m. – everyone made

their way into the bar – and

newly opened event space

– to enjoy upwards of 28

different taps throughout

the day.

“Today we have some

of our fan favorite beers

from past releases and then

all the other beers that we

have normally,” Banbury

said.

Entertainment included

live music from Pete Stillwell,

Matt, Zach and Tom,

and Smiley Tillmon. The

celebration also hosted a

selection of popular food

trucks including Twisted

Classics, Puff Truck,

Ofrenda, and Smokin’

BBQ.

The anniversary party

may be over, but Banbury

welcomes the community

to stop by Hailstorm from

noon until closing, Tuesday

through Sunday to try

what’s on tap.

“Come by, have a good

time, drink some great

beers and have fun,” Banbury

said.

The Dish

Wooden Paddle thrives with dine-in experience after move to Lemont

Former Orland Park

business recently

hit six months in

new community

Thomas Czaja

Contributing Editor

When Jonathan Cowan

was 20 years old, he

bought the struggling Old

Town Pizza business in

Orland Park.

Though he got his first

job at 14 at a pizza place,

Cowan was still inexperienced

as an owner, and he

candidly said he failed for

five years.

Eventually, he and

wife Brianna, whom he

married in 2010, knew a

change was needed. They

switched the name to

Wooden Paddle Pizza in

2013, and made a pledge

to go with fresher ingredients

and a totally new

menu.

Realizing they did not

have the know-how to

compete in making Chicago-style

pizza with area

competitors that have done

so for years, they did research

and began selling

artisan pizza. Still, something

was missing.

“We just didn’t know

enough about our business

yet at that point,” Jonathan

Cowan said. “What I mean

by that is we are more an

experience-based company,

as opposed to a transactional

company.”

He noted the old Orland

Park location only had

four stools, and there was

not much of a chance for

customers to truly have a

dine-in experience. But as

the catering side of their

business began to grow,

they realized they wanted

to focus on that experience.

So, when the lease was

up in Orland, they began

a search and eventually

settled on the location in

Lemont.

Wooden Paddle shut its

doors in Orland in August

2017 and opened up shop

on Dec. 4, 2018, in Lemont.

It was not an easy process.

Jonathan said the new

72-seat location required

extensive work inside and

that they needed to switch

contractors when the first

one they hired got behind

schedule. They were able

to keep up their busy catering

schedule in between

restaurants to help pay the

mortgage on the new spot.

Now, more than six

months in, the Cowans,

who also moved to Lemont

and live less than a

mile away from the business,

have seen plenty of

old customers visit and

new local ones stop in, too.

“I’m very happy with

how everything is going,”

Jonathan said. “Everyone

is very open in this community.”

Wooden Paddle sits on

the corner of Stephen and

Illinois streets on the edge

of the downtown. Some

people thought “oh, another

pizza place” upon

their arrival, Jonathan said,

which is why they took

“pizza” out of the name of

the restaurant, preferring

to go simply by Wooden

Paddle. While pizza is no

doubt a focus of the menu,

the owners view what they

offer as more than just that.

“We added on a lot of

small plates and fancy ourselves

more a tapas restaurant

now,” Jonathan said.

“Pizza is like the ultimate

tapas food — a very shareable

dish for people.”

And the wood-fired,

artisan pizza at Wooden

Paddle is more New Yorkstyle

by nature, he said.

“It’s wood-fired, so it is

cooked a lot quicker,” he

noted. “There is more air

in the dough with our pizza.

... So, our pizza has a

little bit of crispness to it.”

And all pizzas are made

with fresh mozzarella.

One of the popular pizzas

is the Gettin’ Figgy

Wit It ($14), which is

The fried meatballs ($10) at Wooden Paddle in Lemont

feature chuck beef, marinara, freshly grated Parmesan

and basil chiffonade. Thomas Czaja/22nd Century Media

baked with mozzarella and

mascarpone cheeses, and

topped with thinly sliced

prosciutto and a fig jam

also made in-house. Mascarpone

provides a richness

to the pizza, the prosciutto

a saltiness and the

fig jam a sweetness.

“It is hitting a lot of sensory

things, and that’s what

we are looking for when

making food items,” Jonathan

said. “How do we hit

a few different things?”

While many classic pies

transferred with the restaurant

from Orland Park,

there is now a new “Beginnings”

section on the

menu, including the fried

meatballs ($10). Those are

four all-beef meatballs.

Again, nothing touches the

freezer, and Wooden Paddle

works in a mix of fresh

herbs, cheese and spices.

In the future, the menu

is expected to seasonally

rotate some items.

Wooden Paddle has expanded

its offerings to

craft cocktails at the new

location, as well. Pressing

their own lime, lemon

and grapefruit daily and

making their own syrups

has made all the difference

there.

“Just that little extra effort

makes us have a very

elevated drink compared

to buying store-bought

mixes,” Jonathan said.

For dessert, the housemade

gelato flight ($10)

includes five small samples

pistachio, olive oil, vanilla

BOYS BASKETBALL

Tinley Park showing a soph touch this summer

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

The AJ Casey era has not officially

begun yet at Tinley Park

High School.

That will not happen until the

week of Thanksgiving at the

Mount Carmel tournament.

But the dress rehearsal began

on Thursday, June 13, in

the Reavis gym. The new-look

Titans, complete with Simeon

transfer Casey, played three

summer league games and finished

1-2 with a 55-39 win

over Reavis, a 39-33 setback to

Neuqua Valley and a 58-56 loss

to Providence Catholic.

Casey, a 6-foot-9 sophomoreto-be

who Future150.com ranks

as the 15th best player in the

nation in his class, averaged 16

points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists,

1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks per

game mixing in a combination

of inside and outside duties for

the Titans.

His highlight was a threeminute

second-half explosion

against Providence in which he

scored eight points en route to a

26-point effort against the Celtics.

“It was fun to get in some

work and get a lot of reps in,”

Casey said. “It was good to get

to know my new teammates.”

Some of those teammates

include sophomores-to-be

Aa’Reyon Munir-Jones and

Malachi Haythorne and juniors

Jericho Guiang and Jordan

Luckett, who had their moments

of brilliance in the first three

summer league games.

“We are very young and this

is a very good group to work

around,” Titans coach D.J.

Brown said. “We’re excited

about our future.”

The Titans broke a seven-year

streak of losing records in 2018-

19 by going 14-11 and lost a ton

of senior talent from that squad.

Senior-to-be Yitonis Nash is

confident the next couple of seasons

will be strong.

Sophomore-to-be AJ Casey averaged 16 points in three summer

league games for Tinley Park High School at Reavis on Thursday,

June 13. PHOTOS BY JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

“I was really happy to hear

AJ was coming here,” Nash

said. “It’s going to be a great

improvement to our team. He’s

really going to help us.”

Casey will get most of the attention.

Brown said that since

the news broke that Casey was

coming, Tinley Park is getting

invitations to play at some

summer showcases during the

NCAA live period and the Titans

accepted a Martin Luther

King showcase event at Marshall

High School in January.

Casey has the tools to fill up

a scoresheet but playing both

on the inside and outside could

keep rebounds, blocking and assist

numbers down as he splits

time all over the court.

“I like playing both inside and

Aa’Reyon Munir-Jones, a sophomore-to-be at Tinley Park High

School, goes up strong despite being hit on the head against

Neuqua Valley in summer league play at Reavis.

outside,” he said. “I like using

my speed and attacking the hole

and showing my range.”

He grew up in the area and

played basketball at Arbor Park

Middle School. When he was

13, a YouTube video of him

dunking drew 40,000 views.

At Simeon, he was a rare

freshman starter in a wildly

successful program and he hit

a game-winning basket in the

postseason in the closing seconds

to beat Brother Rice.

“It was a tough decision,” he

said, of the transfer. “Simeon

is always a powerhouse team.

But I came to the decision that

I wanted to come back home. I

made the decision a few weeks

ago but it took a long time to

make.”

like best?

Basketball. Football is

something I do to keep active.

How did you

get involved in

basketball?

how he had his team work

hard together. He pushed

them to have a good season.

Is there a TV show

you could binge watch

forever?

There is a series called

“All-American” about a

football player raised in

Compton. Then he moved

to another school. It’s pretty

good.

If you could have

living or dead – who

would it be with?

Shaq. I watched a lot of

Shaq growing up.

Doede ready for a new chapter at Joliet Central

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

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 also was 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 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

FIND YOUR NEXT

GREAT

HIRE

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 OK. 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.”

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.

THURSDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK

More than just spare change coming in 2021

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY

MEDIA

1st and 3

THREE HIGHLIGHTS

FROM TINLEY PARK

HERALDED TRANSFER

A.J. CASEY’S (ABOVE)

SUMMER LEAGUE

DEBUT.

1. A power vs. Provi

The sophomore-tobe

scored 26 points

and hauled down

seven rebounds in

a two-point loss to

Providence Catholic.

That included

an eight-point

explosion in three

minutes.

2. Perimeter power

The Simeon transfer

had six 3-point baskets

in three games

against Neuqua

Valley, Reavis and

Providence.

3. Free throw rollercoaster

After missing four

of his first five free

throws, Casey nailed

nine of his next 11.

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.

since 1992, while next

March will mark the 25th

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.

“It was a tough decision. Simeon is always a powerhouse team. But

I came to the decision that I wanted to come back home. I made the

decision a few weeks ago but it took a long time to make.”
