Glencoe expands Fourth festivities for sesquicentennial

Ronnie Wachter

Freelance Reporter

Longtime participants

and village newcomers

agreed that they enjoyed

the new format of Glencoe’s

Independence Day

celebration on Thursday,

July 4.

The Glencoe community

celebrated the 150th

anniversary of its charter

with a longer parade route,

a larger summer celebration

and a more expensive

fireworks show.

“We are really proud of

our community for walking

and being part of the

parade,” said Erin Classen,

superintendent of marketing

and communications

for the Glencoe Park District,

which worked with

Glencoe Village Hall to organize

and fund the event.

“It was just a really hot

day, which was unfortunate.”

Indeed, the cloudless

sky may have kept some

revelers off the sidewalks,

but the retooled event

likely drew more parade

floats than ever before.

2019 was the first year

that Village Hall (which

organized the parade) required

registration, and

Classen said 45 entrants

took part. Rather than

ending at Village Hall,

a new route took the action

from Central School

northeast up Hazel Avenue

and into Lakefront

Park, where games, food

trucks and inflatables,

plus a stage with rock

bands awaited.

“Ending this at Lakefront

Park is a wonderful

addition,” said Craig Eisner,

who tossed chocolates

and wristbands with

the Glencoe Men’s Library

Club, which made

The Fourth of July parade featured more than 40

participants this year.

its 15th appearance in the

parade. “We haven’t had a

common, unifying event

since the (Glencoe Grand

Prix) bike race left.”

Eisner added 2019 was

the longest line of floats

he had ever seen in Glencoe.

Keeping those floats entertained

— whether they

included live or recorded

music, or none — was Allen

Cosnow, a Hazel Avenue

resident who brought

a wagon out to the edge

of his driveway, rested

his antique Victor gramophone

on it and blasted

marching music. A steady

stream of marchers and

observers walking toward

the park stopped to marvel

at his hand-cranked

wonder and the 78-rpm

records on its turntable.

“I just thought that it

would be interesting to

them,” Cosnow said.

The parade has never

come down Cosnow’s

street before. He said he

enjoyed all the visitors.

What he had been hoping

to see in the new

format was a lesson in

American history. Cosnow

quoted portions of

the Declaration of Independence

and spoke about

the truly revolutionary,

genuinely iconic notion

of government by “We the

people.”

Parade passers-by

looked into Cosnow’s

driveway, saw the giant

gramophone and gave its

owner smiles and thumbsup.

The special Sesquicentennial

Fourth of July

in Glencoe celebration

also included a morning

Rotary 2-Mile Fun Run,

preschool games and

mini golf at Kalk Park,

and Glencoe’s Got Talent

show.

The day ended at Lakefront

Park with beer and

wine sales, food trucks,

inflatables, races, a dunk

tank that featured Village

Manager Phil Kiraly and

Glencoe Park District’s

Lisa Sheppard, live music

by Serendipity and

The Blooze Brothers, and

Glencoe’s largest-ever

fireworks show.

Classen said the district

used its usual vendor, but

with extra funding from

Village Hall, was able to

pay for a longer display.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The

Glencoe Anchor’s Police

Reports are compiled from

official reports found on

file at the Glencoe Police

Department headquarters in

Glencoe. Individuals named

in these reports are considered

innocent of all charges

until proven guilty in a court

of law.

Lt. Neimark reflects on 29 years serving Glencoe before retirement

Alan P. Henry

Freela7nce Reporter

If you’ve lived in Glencoe

long enough, chances

are you’ve crossed paths

with Lt. Mike Neimark, of

the Glencoe Public Safety

Department. Perhaps it was

something as innocuous as

a balky carbon monoxide

detector or a set of keys

locked in the car. Or maybe

it was a frantic late night

call for a paramedic, or

the report of a break-in. Or

maybe you were driving a

little too fast on Green Bay

Road.

For 29 years, Neimark

has answered the call in his

capacity as a certified police

officer, firefighter and

medical first responder to

keep the residents of Glencoe,

their homes and their

community safe. Now, as

he prepares to retire on July

31, he wants to thank everyone

for their support.

“It’s been a great 29-anda-half

years. I’ve loved

it here,” Neimark said.

“Glencoe is a beautiful

community. The residents

are very supportive of public

safety and everybody on

the department.”

Neimark, 53, joined the

department in 1990. In his

first two years, he completed

basic level training at the

Chicago Police Academy,

Highland Park Hospital’s

paramedic program and

the Arlington Heights Fire

Academy. Over the years,

he has held positions on the

dive team, Dive 3 Haz Mat

Team, arson investigator,

fire inspector, paramedic

and PS lieutenant. On July

4, he conducted his 30th

and final fireworks inspection

for the village’s show

that night.

The Public Safety Department

was established in

1954 when Glencoe combined

the police and fire departments

into one single,

cross-trained department

and is one of only two departments

in the state that

operates this way. Neimark

wouldn’t have wanted it

any other way.

“I love this setup. It

works great for us. Everybody

has to be able to do

everything at a moment’s

notice. We just had storms

roll through, fallen trees,

dropped power lines. Everybody

was swapping

back and forth between

fire and police. No matter

what we are doing, we

can switch. We all carry out

turnout gear in the back of

our cars and we become

firefighters,” he said.

Lt. Mike Neimark will

retire from Glencoe’s

Public Safety Department

at the end of July. Photo

It helps, he added, that

“one minute you can be

writing them a ticket but

the next minute you are

coming to save their life if

they have a medical emergency.

They know it is the

same person, and we have a

lot better rapport with them

because of that.”

The fact that everyone in

the department is trained as

a paramedic is of particular

importance, Neimark said.

“We can get a paramedic

who is on the street to the

scene of the medical emergency

a lot quicker than

waiting for the ambulance

because we may have a

paramedic a block away.

They can be there and begin

treatment with what

they have in their cars,” he

said.

Each squad car, he noted,

carries a full first aid kit and

an automated external defibrillator

(AED).

“It has been proven that

the faster you get it there

the better off a person is.

For every minute of delay

to get an AED to somebody

their chance of survival

drops by 10 percent, so by

having one out on the street

with trained people is a lot

better for the residents,” he

said.

Being crossed trained

and prepared for anything

also “keeps the job from

getting monotonous,” he

said.

One day that was anything

but monotonous involved

a call to a house fire

on Vernon Avenue in Winnetka,

where the first floor

was fully in flames. He

and another member of the

squad had raced to the second

floor to check to make

sure no one was up there,

but had to crawl along

the floor to do so because

dense smoke was already

below knee level.

“The sub-floor burned

out underneath of us and

we were on carpet and we

just kept sinking, sinking,

sinking. That was a very

scary thought, thinking

that you could fall into the

fire below us. We had to

high-tail it out of there before

we fell through,” said

Neimark, who has received

eight commendations for

service way above and beyond,

and many more letters

of recognition.

It’s the camaraderie Neimark

is going to miss the

most.

“It’s going to be hard,”

he said.

Every three months their

shifts change, and he makes

it a point to go out for dinner

with his new group and

their spouses.

“Everybody gets to know

everybody that way, and

everybody seems to enjoy

it. We try not to talk about

work and mostly focus on

outside-of-work issues and

meeting each other,” he

added.

The department of 36 is

currently comprised of a

chief, two deputy chiefs,

seven lieutenants and 26

public safety officers.

There is a special kind of

camaraderie, not just in

the smaller squads, but

amongst the entire group

as well, said Neimark.

Older veterans are teaching

younger department

members the ropes, while

younger tech-savvy members

are helping the older

ones become comfortable

with the department’s increasingly

computer-based

operations.

“It is really nice having

the millennials here to help

with a lot of that,” he said.

Neimark’s vaunted

cooking skills may soon

be missed, particularly

during his Saturday breakfasts.

His specialty: “royal

french toast,” comprised of

two pieces of french toast

with cream cheese and jelly

in between. Biscuits and

gravy are another favorite,

and, of course, bacon.

“We love bacon here. We

eat a lot of bacon,” he said.

Going forward, in the

short term, the married

Arlington Heights father

of two plans to “sit back,

decompress for a little bit

and just relax.” He and a

fellow former public safety

officer will also continue

their business in which

they teach CPR and first

aid, and do Haz Mat and

active shooter training for

private businesses. He also

teaches at the Northeast Illinois

Public Safety Training

Academy.

THE NORTHBROOK TOWER

Doors near school

entrances to receive

electronic locks

An added sense of security

will soon be coming

to District 28 schools.

District officials announced

last month that

doors near the front entrances

of its schools will

receive electronic locks

this summer.

Meadowbrook is slated

to receive its security improvements

during renovations

scheduled to take

place during summer

break. Electronic locks

will be added to the main

office doors, limiting access

to the school’s main

hall only to those who

have checked in and are

buzzed in by the main office,

according to District

28 officials.

District parent Collen

Milks, whose husband

has served as the Village

of Glencoe’s police chief,

addressed the District 28

Board of Education about

security concerns during

the public comment portion

of the last two meetings.

Milks expressed concerns

about doors leading

to the main hallways of

both NBJH and Meadowbrook

not having secure

locks. She mentioned an

occasion earlier this summer

where she was buzzed

in with little attentiveness

from the person manning

the front desk.

In response to Milks’

comments made at the

May board meeting, District

28 Superintendent

Dr. Larry A. Hewitt told

The Tower the electronic

locks will require the

school administrative assistant

to buzz visitors in.

THE GLENVIEW LANTERN

Glenview police searching

for missing 20-year-old

man

The Glenview Police

Department is asking for

help finding a 20-yearold

Glenview man who

“may be suffering from

depression,” according to

a release from the department.

Nicholas Zwolinski

was reported missing on

July 1 by his parents after

telling his mother he

was going for a walk that

afternoon. He has not returned

home and left his

wallet and cell phone, the

release states.

Zwolinski was last seen

at 3 p.m. July 1 leaving

his home in the 700 block

of Beaver Road in the Village,

according to police.

He was wearing a gray

T-shirt and black shorts.

Zwolinski is 5 feet, 10

inches tall and has brown

hair and a short beard, the

release states.

Sgt. Jim Foley said

Glenview police officers

and detectives have

been searching through

local woods with the

aid of drones, knocking

on neighbors’ doors and

checking at hospitals and

with friends in an effort

to find Zwolinski, but

“we haven’t found anything.”

Zwolinski is known to

frequent local parks and

the Blue Star Woods, according

to police.

The department is also

following up on every tip

it receives about Zwolinski,

Foley said July 3.

“We’re really exhausting

every resource we

have available right

now,” Foley said.

THE HIGHLAND PARK LANDMARK

Mosquitoes test positive

for West Nile virus in

Highland Park

A batch of mosquitoes

sampled on June 13 in

Highland Park has tested

positive for West Nile virus.

The batch, also known

as a mosquito pool, is the

first confirmed indicator

of West Nile presence in

Lake County in 2019.

“In 2018, there were

eight human cases of West

Nile virus, including one

death confirmed in Lake

County,” said Mark Pfister,

executive director for

the Lake County Health

Department and Community

Health Center.

“Residents need to take

action, practicing the 4

Ds of Defense to protect

themselves from mosquito

bites.”

“Culex pipiens mosquitoes,

which are the primary

carriers of West Nile

virus, are most abundant

in mid- to late summer,

when the weather is hot,”

said Michael Adam, senior

biologist for the Health

Department. “Residents

can help prevent these

mosquitoes from breeding

by eliminating areas of

stagnant water from their

properties — items like

buckets, gutters and plant

containers, kiddie pools,

and any other items holding

water around homes

and businesses — can become

breeding sites.”

The Lake County Health

Department’s Mosquito

Surveillance Program coordinates

mosquito-trapping

results throughout

Lake County. Mosquitoes

are tested weekly for West

Nile virus.

Health Department. Full story

City Girl Confessions

Everything is under construction

Kelly Anderson

Contributing Columnist

I

must get better at

waiting. My personality

has never

been amenable to the

art of patience. Even as

an adult, I’m constantly

working on it. And there

is no greater test of

patience than summer

road construction in the

Midwest.

Given that the winter

cold lingers for far too

many months, community

improvements are

all crammed into June,

July and August. Orange

cones are everywhere.

Roads are blocked off.

Commute times are

doubled. Lately, I’ve

found myself stranded at

intersections, creeping

along in gridlock traffic,

and rerouted on detours

because of closures, expansions

and the like.

Annoyingly enough,

this is fitting. For I, too,

am under construction,

as I continue to rebuild

parts of my heart and

mind after the death of

my dog. I am helping my

kids renovate the emotions

they carry when

they come across a dog

leash and remember that

there is no dog to walk.

I am rebuilding all of the

broken parts that arrive

in the aftermath of sudden

tragedy. Sometimes

I feel like a construction

worker, wearing a hard

hat and orange vest, waving

flags that indicate,

“Proceed with caution.”

There are some frustrating

parallels. Just

trying merging onto the

highway by Waukegan

Road, only to see that,

due to construction, it’s

been restricted to one

lane of traffic. A highway,

notorious for highspeed

travel, has now

been forced to change,

reroute, and slow down.

It’s doing what is necessary

to get through a

difficult time.

I feel like that highway.

I am used to a

go-go-GO life yet I have

been forced to change,

reroute and slowdown. I

Great to see new Fourth of July traditions

Megan Bernard

megan@glencoeanchor.com

This year’s Fourth

of July was extra

special for the Village

of Glencoe.

Not only was the

Village marking Independence

Day on July 4,

but it had an expanded

celebration with the Glencoe

Park District for its

sesquicentennial anniversary.

It was great to see so

many residents participate

in the day’s kickoff:

a Rotary 2-Mile Fun

Run through the town in

the morning. The holiday

fun continued with

preschool games and mini

golf at Kalk Park and

the Glencoe’s Got Talent

show. Then there was the

afternoon parade, which

invited residents to follow

it to Lakefront Park,

where there was plenty

of activities awaiting

them. Those included:

beer and wine sales, food

trucks, inflatables, races,

a dunk tank that featured

Village Manager Phil

Kiraly and Glencoe Park

District’s Superintendent

Lisa Sheppard, live music

by Serendipity and The

Blooze Brothers, and

Glencoe’s largest-ever

fireworks show.

During the celebration,

Craig Eisner, of the Glencoe

Men’s Library Club,

told our reporter, Ronnie

Wachter, that ending

the parade at Lakefront

Park was “a wonderful

addition” — and I have

to agree. Another resident

remarked that this year’s

parade had the most floats

he’s ever seen.

With the afternoon

parade and additional

nighttime activities, it

was evident that more

residents wanted to stay

in town for their celebration

of the Fourth and

their hometown, Glencoe.

I’m sure that it took “a

village” to put together

this event, so I would like

to commend everyone for

a job well done! Perhaps

next year, we could continue

the new traditions?

Glencoe Community Garden posted this photo

THE WILMETTE BEACON

Wilmette’s Actors

Training Center assists

college-bound actors with

new program

The Actors Training

Center in Wilmette is piloting

a new program at

the end of this summer

aimed at helping young

actors apply to college

theater departments and

conservatories.

The program, called the

College Audition Clinic,

will offer a holistic approach

to the college audition

process and provide

professional assistance in

managing this process.

Carole Dibo, the founder

of the Actors Training

Center, said the idea for

the clinic started a decade

ago.

“Ten years ago, Rachel

Brosnahan, who is now

the lead in the ‘Marvelous

Mrs. Maisel,’ came

to me looking for help

to get into college and to

help her choose the right

monologue for her audition,”

Dibo said.

fluttered, goosebumps

dotted my skin and it was

as if a voice whispered

that life would still go

on. And isn’t that true?

Life always goes on.

After every tragic event

or bad day, there is another

day that comes. A

day where people walk,

breathe and exist. A day

when the sun rises.

I’ll confess: maybe I

was wrong. Maybe I am

under construction but

perhaps I’m not the highway.

Perhaps I am the

worker in the hard hat

and orange vest waving

flags. But maybe instead

of “proceed with caution,”

perhaps the message

I’m really sharing

is “keep going, it gets

better up ahead.”

I must get better at

waiting. I’m still a work

on that. But the sun is

out. A new season is

upon us. And life goes

on. It always does.

Four New Trier alumnae create platform for custom landscape plans

Libby Elliott

Freelance Reporter

We call them “disrupters.”

They’re the tech-driven

businesses like Uber,

Airbnb and Netflix that

displace established market

leaders and radically

change the way a product

is delivered or consumed,

from hailing a taxi, to

booking a hotel, to watching

to TV.

Now, disrupters are

changing the world of

landscape design.

Launched in February

2019 by four New Trier

graduates, the website

tilly-design.com uses a

simple online platform

to deliver custom landscape

plans for outdoor

spaces, eliminating costly

face-to-face meetings and

challenging an industry

that hasn’t innovated in

decades.

“Up until now, there’s

typically been only two

angles in the landscaping

industry,” said Tilly cofounder

and Winnetkanative

Blythe Yost, a New

York-based landscape architect

with 15 years experience

in landscape design

businesses. “There’s

the mow-and-blow guy or

the high-end landscape architect

with big ideas that

cost big money. There’s

nothing for your average

customer that’s cost effective.”

Yost’s three additional

co-founders, Sarah Finazzo

and Alexis Sutton,

both from Wilmette, and

Heather Hoeppner, a

A landscape design by TillyDesign.com, a company

created by New Trier graduates. Photo submitted

Glencoe native, remained

close friends after graduating

from New Trier

in 2001. The foursome

hatched the business plan

for Tilly last year during

their annual summer

friendship reunion with

husbands and children.

While the price of a

traditional landscape architect

generally ranges

from $2,000 to $7,000-

plus before plant materials

and installation, Tilly

offers four discrete design

packages: The Mini ($95),

The Front ($275), The

Back ($375) and The Full

($575) for a redesign of an

entire yard.

“Through initial research

and testing, we’ve

seen that especially the

millennial demographic

— who are now entering

homeownership by the

masses — are extremely

receptive to digital design

and service,” Yost

said. “Being online is the

norm.”

Tilly co-founders use a

web-based, streamlined

process to engage with

homeowners without

time-consuming, in-person

meetings.

After completing a

high-level intake questionnaire

on the company’s

website, customers

purchase a design package

before moving into a

deeper space assessment

based on detailed photos

and a property survey.

A video-based personal

consultation offers Tilly

the chance to get to know

their customers’ lifestyles

and familiarize themselves

with a home’s indoor and

outdoor spaces, whether

its new construction or a

renovation project.

After a bit of back and

forth, Tilly provides customers

with a detailed,

scaled landscaping plan

along with a shopping list

and detailed installation

instructions.

“Our primary focus is

plants,” Yost said. “We

can design walkways,

100-plus artists display botanical-themed work at garden

Alexa Burnell

Freelance Reporter

The already picturesque

Chicago Botanic Garden

received an extra splash of

color and creativity during

the ninth annual Botanic

Garden Art Festival, Friday-Sunday,

July 5-7.

Produced by Amdur

Productions, the juried

event welcomed 103 artists

from across the nation,

decorating the grounds

with works of art featuring

a nature or botanical

theme.

Amdur’s director of art

relations Caitlin Pfleger

explained the careful consideration

that goes into

choosing the right artists

for the prestigious festival.

“What we look for is

creativity, technique and

a comprehensive thought

put into each piece submitted.

For this particular

festival, submissions must

reflect a natural, organic

or botanical theme. We

seek professional pieces of

work, ranging from jewelry

and paintings to photography

and sculptures,”

Pfleger said.

This year, Pfleger pointed

out the impressive

amount of garden sculptures

on display, complimenting

the “breathtaking”

grounds of the

Botanic Garden.

“This truly is one of

the most idyllic settings,

because it is simply so

beautiful. We appreciate

working with the Botanic

Garden staff because they

have just as much passion

about the grounds as we

do about art. It’s a perfect

partnership,” Pfleger

added.

Similarly, Jodi Zombolo,

associate vice president

of visitor events and

programs for the garden,

explained how the annual

art festival brings an extra

special feel each and every

year.

“The festival allows us

to engage our visitors with

a special experience, offering

another unique way

to enjoy the beauty of the

garden,” Zombolo said.

“What I most love about

this festival is seeing artist

showcase their unique

ways of interpreting the

use of nature and horticulture

in their respective

work. There is always

something new and interesting

to see.”

Zombolo added that on

any given typical beautiful

summer afternoon, the

garden can expect to entertain

5,000 visitors. On

the weekend of the festival,

she estimates that about

80 percent of those guests

also visit the various artist

booths.

For Peter Thaddeus,

an acrylic painter from

Warrenville, the foot traffic

is always among the most

appreciated.

“I present in a variety

of art festivals each year

and always appreciate the

amount of festivalgoers

here at the Botanic Garden.

People come to see

all aspects of the gardens,

so it keeps them lingering

longer. I always feel like I

get a chance to get to know

visitors well, allowing

me to tell them about my

animal-inspired, colorful,

themed paintings. What I

want my work to convey

most is love, acceptance

and an appreciation for

human differences. I want

guests to feel uplifted after

seeing my work,” Thaddeus

said.

inspiration.

“I really appreciate the

diverse crowd; not only are

there artists from all over

the nation, but the visitors

are all so unique and come

from near and far for this

weekend,” Floriano said.

“More than anything, these

grounds provide a wonderful

setting and there is a

shared love among us all

for nature.”

to allow you to go get a

Launched in February

2019, Tilly is already

working in over 10 states

markets, including New

York, Connecticut, Florida,

Colorado, California

and Illinois.

Tilly’ co-founders say

their service is particularly

suited for homeowners

looking fix a problem

area in their yard or to get

a home ready to sell.

“We have one Chicago

resident with a shared

yard looking to create a

cohesive front lawn,” Finazzo

said.

Raised vegetable beds

and pollinator gardens are

also increasingly popular,

says Yost, as homeowners

are growing more ecologically

conscious.

Tilly’s four female cofounders

are also determined

to upend an industry

that’s traditionally been

the sole domain of men.

‘The landscaping business

is 83 percent male,”

Finazzo said. “We’re

proud to be a femaleowned

business, especially

now that we’re all moms.”

Spread out between

New York, Denver and

Chicago, these business

partners are juggling family

and work commitments

in addition to launching

Tilly. Nonetheless, they

still make time to reconnect

and reminisce.

“The beauty of the

North Shore is something

we try to replicate with

our designs,” Finazzo

said. “Having grown up

near parks and beaches,

we know how important it

is to maximize life just by

being outside.”

Aboyer a ‘lively’ contribution to Winnetka culinary scene

Erin Yarnall

Contributing Editor

After 14 years in business,

chef and restaurateur

Michael Lachowicz decided

to close the door on his

Winnetka restaurant, Restaurant

Michael.

Instead of packing up

shop and moving elsewhere

when his restaurant closed,

Lachowicz transformed the

former Restaurant Michael

into three unique restaurants

— Aboyer, Silencieux

and George Trois (which

was opened in 2015).

Aboyer, according to

Lachowicz, is the most accessible

of the three restaurants.

With the restaurant’s

proximity to the kitchen,

it’s aptly named after the

French word for “to bark.”

“The reason I named

Aboyer ‘the barker’ is because

the barker in the

French brigade system in

the kitchen is the expediter,”

Lachowicz said. “The

expediter barks out orders

all night long.”

With all three of Lachowicz’s

Winnetka restaurants

housed in the same

building, Aboyer is centerstage,

and because of its

positioning, tends to be the

liveliest.

“[The name] implies that

it’s going to be lively,” Lachowicz

said. “It’s going

to be louder and it’s going

to be more of a raucous

scene.”

He wanted it to take after

French brasseries, which he

described as “an elevated

bistro service.”

“Bistros were traditionally

known to be very traditional,

everyday places.

It’s like ‘Cheers,’” where

everyone knows diners’

names. Lachowicz said.

“A brasserie is an elevated

version of that, with more

of an escalated-style menu

and prices.”

Last week, a group of

22nd Century Media editors

stopped by Aboyer to

meet Lachowicz and check

out his new restaurant’s

menu.

Aboyer’s rabbit and sage sausage ($13) is served over

charred savoy cabbage and white quinoa with finger

limes and topped with serrano ham crisps. Jason

Addy/22nd Century Media

Lachowicz and his staff

served us up some of his favorites

on the menu, along

with several other items.

They first brought us the

confit new potato brandade

($10) — a French dish

that’s an emulsion of cod

and olive oil. The dish was

served with an aerated garlic

bechamel, black sea salt

and grilled garlic croutons.

“That’s a super classic

dish,” Lachowicz said.

“It’s classic bistro brasserie

because it’s great for

communal eating and bar

dining and beer- and winefriendly.

It’s communal.

You can dip and talk, and

it sits and holds. As it cools

off, it doesn’t disappear. It’s

delicious.”

Another of Lachowicz’s

favorite dishes is the

rabbit and sage sausage

($13), which is served with

a charred savoy cabbage

confit, white quinoa, finger

lime and serrano ham

crisps.

“The rabbit sausage is a

beautiful dish,” Lachowicz

said. “We make all of

the sausage here and we

bring in whole rabbits. We

butcher them down and use

the bones to make sauce.

We use the rabbit meat to

make sausages. We braise

the legs and thighs and

we take the saddle and

loins to make the sausage

meat. We season them

and they’re aged properly.

They’re crisp on the grill

and they’re lovely.”

10 Questions

with Artie Collins

The Loyola graduate will

play college football next

season at Johns Hopkins

University.

When did you first

start playing football?

So my first game of

tackle football was in fifth

grade, but I started playing

football, like flag, all

the way back in I would

say kindergarten. My dad

is a huge football guy, he

grew up in Florida, so he

lives and breathes football,

so he just passed that along

to me, and I loved it ever

since.

What’s one thing

people don’t know

about you?

I’m the fourth of my

name, so I’m the fourth

Artie Collins, the fourth

generation Artie Collins.

If you could travel

anywhere in the

world, where would

it be?

I would say Africa on a

safari, because I’ve always

interested in exotic animals,

and I feel like that’d

be the coolest thing.

If you cold have one

meal for the rest of

your life, what would

it be, and where

would it be from?

I would say the Portillo’s

Italian beef.

Do you have any

superstitions before,

during, or after a

game?

Yeah. So me, Rory

Boos, Nolan West, and

Jack Fallon, so three of

my teammates, we have a

team dinner every Friday,

and we had this whole routine

in our car about where

we sat, and what music we

played before going to every

team dinner, and it was

a huge deal, and that was

our superstition. We had to

do it right every time.

What’s the hardest

part about playing

football?

The summer grind. Just

to practice everyday in the

heat.

If you could play

another sport, what

22nd Century Media File Photo

would it be?

I would play baseball,

because I quit baseball going

into junior year to focus

on football, but I love

playing it still.

What’s one song

that’s on your

playlist?

Our song for the car ride

was “Swag Surfin.”

If you had five dollars

at Walgreens, what

would you buy?

I’d buy some Sour Patch

Kids and a Gatorade.

What was your

favorite memory at

Loyola?

Definitely winning the

state championship.

The Varsity: North Shore Podcast

Guys start talk of bracket for best current player

Staff Report

In this week’s episode

of The Varsity: North

Shore, the only podcast

focused on North Shore

sports, hosts Michal

Dwojak, Michael Wojtychiw

and Nick Frazier do

something different. With

the summer taking its full

effect in July, the guys

decide to make a bracket

of the best current North

Shore athletes competing

at the professional level.

The guys spend this episode

talking about talking

about who should

enter the 16-team field

and which seeding they

should receive.

First Quarter

The three start off the

episode talking about who

will enter as the teams

overall No. 1 seed and

who barely makes it into

the dance.

Second Quarter

The guys move on to

the second quarter of the

bracket, where they argue

who should be considered

backs. So all that, just from

knowing each other, and

playing with each other for

so long.”

Collins played on the

varsity squad the last two

years and was moved up

to the varsity for the playoffs

his sophomore season,

so he’s been a member of

three consecutive statechampionship

appearances,

including this past

fall’s state title team.

After starting the season

3-3, the Ramblers rattled

off eight wins in a row to

end the season as champions,

knocking off Maine

South and Lincoln-Way

East, the two teams who

had beaten the Ramblers

in the previous two state

titles games, as well as

Brother Rice, who had

crew had a shot at a medal

when the rowers posted the

fastest time in the time trials

on the first day of racing.

Culver called the result,

achieved by four sophomore

rowers and one junior, “a remarkable

accomplishment

for such a young crew.”

The sole junior in the

boat, Diana Paduraru-

Iovaanescu, said, “Every

single girl in my boat had

the same priorities: to go

fast and be the absolute

best we could be. I have

never been part of a crew

that has been so serious

the second-best.

Third Quarter

They move on to the

third quarter of the bracket,

where they’ll find the hardest

matchups will show up.

Fourth Quarter

The Varsity’s hosts finish

the bracket off with

the last portion and decide

who the last No. 1 seed

should be.

beat the Ramblers in the

regular season, in the last

three playoff rounds.

Being able to defeat

those three teams consecutively

made the title win

even sweeter.

“It was just a dream

come true,” he said. “Completing

with all my best

friends, and just having a

storybook ending like that

was just ... I couldn’t explain

it in words.”

and mature but also has

such fun-loving energy.”

She praised Coach Sandy

Culver “for believing in us

and guiding us every day.”

Boys coach Nate Kelp-

Lenane praised his varsity

and lightweight crews, noting

that the Varsity 8+ boat

missed qualifying for the

Grand Finals by a mere 0.2

seconds over 2,000 meters.

“I was happy to see them

winning the B finals ahead

of Cincinnati Juniors and

Newport, two power house

clubs that we have never

beat in the spring.”

Going Places

Collins overcomes odds to play at next level

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

Artie Collins never really

thought he was going

to play football in college.

After playing on the

Freshman B team, playing

at the next level is something

that didn’t look to be

in the cards.

“During that time, I

definitely didn’t think I

was playing, because ...

there’s few [players] every

year that start on varsity

that were on B team, but

I didn’t know about being

one of them,” Collins said.

“But then by junior year, I

played somewhat, and then

I started getting some looks

going into senior year that

summer, so that started

probably going into senior

year that summer, that I really

started thinking I could

play in college.”

Collins will get that opportunity

now after signing

with Johns Hopkins

University during the

spring signing period.

The Glenview resident

will head to Baltimore

after having a successful

senior season that saw him

earn a spot on the Team 22

Second Team and an All-

Chicago Catholic League

Blue honor this past fall.

One of the likely reasons

for that is that he became

one of quarterback Jack

Fallon’s favorite targets

down the final stretch of

the season.

“It was really nice, because

Jack, when he came

back, his shoulder was still

hurting a little bit, so he

was just trying to get in

a groove with things, but

then once we started clicking

a lot, they were always

looking at Rory (Boos), so

I had to step my game up,”

he said. “He was looking

at me a lot, because

they’d often do a safety

over Rory, or something

like that, so we were trying

to be multidimensional,

Loyola alumnus Artie Collins will be playing college football at Johns Hopkins

University next season. 22nd Century Media File Photo

just have me on one side,

Rory on the other, and just

give both sides ... because

the defense was giving me

more of the opportunity

and we were just making

the most of them.”

Collins, Fallon and Boos

actually have quite the history

as they are three of

over 10 players on this

past year’s Loyola varsity

squad that all played

at Our Lady of Perpetual

Help together since the

fifth grade.

In fact, even when Fallon

was out with his injury

at the beginning of

the year, Collins and Boos

were being fed the ball by

another one of their grade

school teammates, Matthew

Schiltz.

Having that history and

that comfort with each

other is something Collins

feels helped not only him,

but the entire squad this

season.

“So it did help a lot, especially

with me personally,

because Jack Fallon

and Matt Schiltz, who

were our two quarterbacks

this year, were both

from OLPH, so I knew

them since I was like six,

and then Rory Boos is the

other receiver going to college.

I’ve known him since

I was like three,” Collins

said. “It’s really cool just

chemistry-wise, while

playing football, but also

I could hold them accountable,

and we could correct

each other, and do all that,

without getting mad. We

knew we had each other’s

Regina names Mancuso athletic director

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

Brian Mancuso has

been an athletic director

for over a decade. Born

and raised in Terre Haute,

Ind., he spent nearly eight

years as the athletic director

and over four years

as the assistant athletic

director at Terre Haute

South Vigo High School

before spending the last

two months as the interim

assistant athletic director

at Lake Forest High

School.

Now he’ll be taking his

talents to Wilmette after

being named Regina Dominican’s

new athletic director.

Mancuso replaces

Tom Marcum, who had

been at the helm for three

years and now moves over

to Lisle High School to be

that school’s athletic director.

“I’ve been an athletic

director and always have

had a love of sport,” he

said. “I wanted to continue

what I was doing

and I’ve obviously been

attracted to the area, it’s

a great area, lots of great

people. Very friendly. So,

I think I love those things

and the more I learn about

the routine and the community,

the more I’m impressed

and I think it’s a

great fit.

“People I talked to up

here and friends from the

area all said really good

things about Regina.”

Mancuso’s old school

is pretty much the opposite

of Regina — a co-ed

school of over 1,800 students,

compared to Regina’s

girls-only, 544-student

population — but he

doesn’t feel it will be that

much of a change or difference.

“I think all schools

have their unique cultures

and their challenges,”

he said. “I think one of

the things that’s attractive

about Regina is the

fact you can meet and

understand the kids, and

see more kids, you know

and see kind of how they

progress. In a school of

1,800, it’s a little bit harder

to develop relationships

with kids.”

At Regina, Mancuso

will look to build on the

things Marcum laid the

foundation on.

This past year, the

school improved some of

its athletic facilities, including

playing the first

softball, soccer and lacrosse

games on school

grounds. Previously, the

Panthers had used fields at

Techny Towers in Northbrook

as their home fields

during the spring.

“It’s a win-win,” Mancuso

said, “First of all,

for our student athletes,

the fact that they do,

they play at home in

front of their town, their

community, their fans. I

think it’s going to benefit

for them.

“Also, since they’re at

home they’re not traveling

and I know our student

athletes have a lot of

other interests, and this

will allow them to focus

more time on their clubs

and their studies, maybe

some things outside of

sports. I’m really excited

for the opportunity to continue

to host.”

Mancuso moved to the

area after getting engaged

and to be closer to his fiance,

who lives in Highland

Park. He mentioned

that the area is one of the

things that enticed him

to leave the state he had

grown up in.

Mancuso admits that although

moving from one

state’s athletic association

to another might be

tricky, sports are sports.

Some of the main differences

are that some sports

sanctioned by the IHSA

aren’t sanctioned as official

sports in Indiana and

that some sports’ seasons

are different in the two

states.

However, he’s developed

a vision, one that he

feels will help the Panthers

continue to have

success.

“I think number one, I

think we need to increase

our website and social

media presence and get

our name out, and then

to continue to help in the

area, and provide safe

and quality opportunities

for girls to play sports,”

he said. “I think both of

those things ... I think we

need to continue to teach

schools in the classroom

and then outside the classroom,

which will allow

our population to go on

and go to a collegiate atmosphere

and be students,

and be leaders; basically

allow them an opportunity

to grow.”

era gets underway Aug.

Truckers games: thirdbase

“It’s awesome, I love

Miss Mac,” Hielscher.

“She’s like such a second

mother to me in a way.

I’ve just known her from

being a student, and then

from working at New Trier,

and coaching at New

Trier.

“So having her back

and now we harass her as

much as she used to harass

us. No running in softball.

We make her run over and

coach us at third base. It’s

been a riot.”

It’s been special for Mc-

Namara as well.

“I have to admit I’m

very blessed,” she said.

“Everybody takes care of

me.

“I tell them ‘people

don’t like us already because

we’re so good. So

don’t get up there and take

a walk. Hit it!

“It’s neat to see all of

them still playing together,

but they are so skilled.

To watch them play all of

their positions, really they

do well. They really do

well.”

has won the title eight or

nine times, with the only

loss in the title game they

could remember was being

five years ago when

the Mother Truckers fell

to Girls Night Out.

The Mother Truckers

finished the regular season

11-0 and scored no

fewer than 11 runs in each

of their six wins. Thanks

to their perfect regular

season record, they earned

the top overall seed in the

league’s playoffs, which

started July 9. That game,

unfortunately was after

this paper’s deadline.

However, if the Mother

Truckers win on July 9,

they would play for the

league title at 7 p.m. on

July 16 at Field #2 of the

Skokie Playfields.

Win or lose though, it’s

all about the game and

spending time together.

“(Playing with) Some

of the women that were

a little older than us, that

we’ve heard about as softball

players but didn’t get

the chance to play with at

New Trier has been fun,”

Hielscher said. “Every

year, I mean, we’re still

hitting home runs, and

making double plays, and

competing so it’s great.

It feels like ... You feel

young again.”

Love of softball keeps local team together

Michael Wojtychiw, Sports Editor

The Mother Truckers, one of

the teams in the Winnetka Park

District’s Women’s 12-inch

softball league that plays Tuesday

nights from May to July, are

a prime example of friends who

continue to play a sport they’ve

loved all of their lives.

The team, which has been in

the league for the past 10 seasons,

came into the league as

mostly New Trier graduates,

many of whom played high

school softball together and

still continued their friendships,

even as they became adults, got

married and had kids.

But not even those life events

could stop the women of the

Mother Truckers from playing

the game they’ve loved for so

long.

“Softball is such a fun sport

because it’s so social,” Katie

Hielscher said. “It’s just an excuse

to hang out with each other

for a couple months a year and

have fun, compete, hopefully

win. Just laugh and enjoy each

other’s company.”

Hielscher and Amy Swartchild,

who have been friends

since they were kids, have both

played since they graduated

from college, coming up from

the city to play for a team The

Crushers, who eventually became

too big and the Mother

Truckers were born. The majority

of those initial Mother

Trucker squads was made up

of New Trier graduates with a

sprinkling of other local high

school friends or others that

they knew had played softball.

Swartchild got an early introduction

to softball, attending her

mom’s games when her mom

played in a women’s league in

Highland Park. Coincidentally,

that team’s name was also the

Mother Truckers. However, unlike

her mom’s team, the current

Mother Truckers team wasn’t

sponsored by a trucking company.

“I do have a memory of being

at games, so it was fun for me

... she’s always been an athlete,

not necessarily a softball player,

but was in this league,” she said.

“It was fun to be able to name

the team after her.”

The size of the league has

fluctuated since the group

started playing, ranging from

as many as eight teams to what

was almost a devastating season

this year.

Just weeks before the season

was to start, the league was

stuck at three teams but luckily a

team from Evanston, The Bundt

Cakes, jumped in last minute

and the league could go on. If

The Bundt Cakes hadn’t joined

the league, it would have been

the first time there wouldn’t be

a league in 20 years.

“That would have been

devastating to us because we

wouldn’t be able to get together

on a Tuesday night and laugh

and have fun together,” said

Kerry Stinchcomb, of Northbrook,

another one of the New

Trier grads who has been with

the squad for the entire run.

When the league had eight

teams, every team wouldn’t

play any teams multiple times

and there would be more competition

in the league.

Even though the league is

smaller now than it has been in

years past, Swartchild says it

makes for as good of an experience

as ever.

“Yes, we need more teams,

Lic. 055-004618

but one of the good things is

that you know the players on

the other teams now,” she said.

“You can be friendly with them.

It’s competitive but we know

them, talk to them, we can laugh

together.”

One thing that hasn’t changed

for the New Trier grads is the

presence of Miss Mac. Jane

“Miss Mac” McNamara, the

longtime New Trier educator,

coach, advisor and pioneer for

women’s sports at the school,

actually coached many of the

Mother Truckers either in volleyball,

softball or had them in

class.

A couple years ago, Stinchomb

ran into Miss Mac at

a local church event, told her

about the softball team and that

they play every Tuesday at the

Skokie Playfields. McNamara

told her she’d be at their next

game and low and behold, when

the Mother Truckers played

a couple days later, there was

Miss Mac at the Playfields to

watch her former players play.

She’s been to every game since.

“She’s hilarious,” Swartchild

said. “She’s the best. Tough as

nails.”

This year Miss Mac took to

Wilmette Waves pitching dominates Highland Park

One of the odd benefits

for a pitcher sitting out due

to illness is a rested pitching

arm, a benefit that Wilmette’s

Jack Liepert used

for all it was worth against

Highland Park.

Liepert tossed five innings

of perfect no-hit

baseball against the Giants

in an 11-0 win for Wilmette,

in a Connie Mack

league game on Monday,

July 1 in Wilmette.

“I had a break with a sinus

infection so I was out

for a while, and my arm

felt pretty good today,”

Liepert said. “It was mostly

fastballs and my location

was on.”

Liepert’s perfect game

came in the first game of

a doubleheader between

the Waves and Giants. He

struck out five and did not

yield a walk in the win.

Wilmette’s Avery Chatterton

had two hits and

two RBI, Alex Calarco had

three RBI, and Eddie Harvey

had a two-RBI triple

in the Game 1 win.

Wilmette also won the

second game in five innings

by a score of 14-4,

with pitcher Harvey collecting

the win and the

Waves using an eight-run

third inning to pull away

from Highland Park.

“We ran the bases pretty

well, had a couple two-out

hits, and we obviously had

really good pitching in that

first game,” Wilmette head

coach Mike Napoleon

said.

Cal Marran had three

RBI and three hits to lead

the Waves in the second

game. Chatterton, Jack

Miller, and AJ Steinback

had two RBI apiece as

Wilmette had 10 hits and

took seven walks. Charlie

Acri and Brett Johnson

also had RBI hits in the

Game 2 win.

Highland Park went into

Monday’s game with a 5-2

record in Connie Mack

play but struggled in Wilmette.

“It was obviously a

tough day today,” Highland

Park coach Jason

Newburger said. “Our bats

got a lot better in Game 2

but it wasn’t enough today.

We did not play good baseball

across the board but

sometimes there are days

like that.”

Highland Park catcher

Max Cairo saw a carryover

effect for his side after

Liepert stymied his side in

the Monday’s first game..

“Everyone’s been hitting

the ball well but we had

no hits in the first game

and our energy just wasn’t

there,” Cairo said. “(Liepert)

had a perfect game and

I really think that kind of

bummed us out going into

the second game.

“We were able to get

ourselves together and

we ended up with (six)

hits in the second game,

and that’s really more our

brand of baseball. We had

more energy in the dugout

and on the field.”

Unfortunately for Highland

Park, Harvey followed

Liepert with another

solid pitching performance

for Wilmette. Harvey had

five strikeouts in five innings

in going the distance

in the second game.

“(Liepert) is doing a

nice job. He’s going to be

a senior so we expect good

things from him and Eddie

Harvey,” Napoleon

said. “Alex Calarco will

be one of our main guys,

and Drew Robinson and

Jack Miller are also doing

a really nice job for us in

terms of being good leaders

for us.

“You’re not so concerned

about the won-lost

record in the summer. I

just want to try to get our

guys better for next year,

get their fundamentals

down, and see them work

as a team and get to know

each other.”

Monday’s two wins

gave Wilmette an 8-3 record

with six league games

remaining. The Waves lead

the Connie Mack Blue Division

and Liepert believes

this summer bodes well for

New Trier’s spring season

of 2020.

“We’re focused on

playing clean games because

if you don’t give up

walks and don’t commit

errors, it makes the game

pretty easy,” Liepert said.

“I think we’ve definitely

improved from the spring

season in the field, and our

bats have been really good

this summer.”

Highland Park (5-4) got

two hits apiece in Game 2

from Cairo and Abe Winer,

along with RBI hits

from Gabe Spitz, Joey

Glickman, and Albert

Kaskel.

“We’ve been playing really

good baseball — good

defense, the bats have been

good, and we’ve been

throwing a lot of strikes,”

Newburger said.

“Both (catchers) Max

Cairo and Gabe Spitz

have not only been hitting

well but also handling

the pitching staff

well. They’re young guys

behind the dish and then

we’ve got some returning

seniors doing a nice job

leading them.”
