City celebrates 4th of July with parade, festival and cake

Olivia Vallone

Editorial Intern

The Mariachis Los Paisanos group performs during the

parade.

An actress dressed as the Disney character Moana

greets attendees at the parade.

Highland Park celebrated

its 150th birthday at

the town’s Fourth of July

festivities to have as many

residents in attendance as

possible.

The city’s actual birthday

is on March 11th, but

since this is such a big

milestone, and it is much

warmer in the summer,

they chose to do a big celebration

in July. Locals

ate cake and sang Happy

Birthday to the city after

the parade at Sunset

Woods Park.

The parade route was

changed this year to accommodate

more floats

and spectators alike.

“It gives additional

viewing areas for people to

set up and watch” Hayley

Garard of the City Manager’s

office said.

Descendants of Highland

Park’s first families

were the Grand Marshalls

for the parade in keeping

with the sesquicentennial

theme. The descendants

followed veterans and

city employees who risk

their lives keeping people

safe in leading the rest of

almost 80 floats along the

new route.

The longer parade ended

at Sunset Woods Park

where a celebration by the

city and the park district

was thrown. Big Bash,

which was thrown by the

city, was free to all attendees.

To enjoy the rides,

games, and petting zoo of

Fourth Fest by the Park

District, a wristband or

tickets needed to be purchased.

“It’s nice that the Park

District has the opportunity

to do this for the community,”

Cathy Fiori, recreation

supervisor for the

Park District of Highland

Park said.

Fourth Fest coordinators

surprised residents

with new rides and attractions

geared towards older

kids and parents too. Of

course featuring classic

favorite rides, the festival

brought bounce house obstacle

courses and giant

swing rides enjoyed by

everyone.

Fiori said the theme

for the festival was state

fair nostalgia, so the team

brought in a big slide with

colorful lanes that everyone

could race on.

“No matter what your

age, it brings back memories

and if you’re a kid it’s

just fun.” Fiori said.

Park’s 4th of July parade, July 4, in downtown Highland Park. Photos by Mairead

Kahn/22nd Century Media

The Highland Park Police Department take part in the parade.

Bench Press and Highland

Park Pops performed during

the celebrations in the

park.

“Oh! The free cake!”

Garard joked when asked

what her favorite part of

the celebration would be.

“No, but it’s a great opportunity

to come together.

Events like this are just

fun to see all the community

out, all the different

generations, it is such

a special event and to be

celebrating our 150th this

year, it makes it all that

more special.”

Later that night, the

community turned its focus

to the Bitter Jester

Music Festival in Wolters

Park where bands like Ax

and the Hatchetmen, Cooper

Run and Distant Cuzins.

The fest also featured

Augmented Seventh as a

showcase band.

Bitter Jester has held a

music festival to go along

with the City’s 4th of July

celebration for several

years. The organization

hosts a concert in Port

Clinton Square for weeks

leading up to the holiday

festival, where bands compete

for a chance to perform

on the 4th of July.

“The biggest change this

year is we’re doing a big

push toward the educational

component of things,”

said Nicolas DeGrazia, the

co-founder and creative director

of Bitter Jester. “In

addition to the feedback

that bands get from the

judges, we make a point to

give them a recording of

their Friday night performance.”

All of these events were

gearing people up for the

main attraction at the end

of the day: the fireworks

show.

According to Garard,

Wolters Park was the best

place to view the fireworks.

The Park District

of Highland Park had a

different set up at Hidden

Creek AquaPark to watch

the show. People who attended

were offered the

chance to float in the water

and watch the same lightshow

as the ones in Wolters

Park, just in the water

instead.

“I look[ed] forward to

seeing everyone in red,

white and blue in the park

on a warm, sunny day.”

Fiori said.

HP driver charged for role in fatal car crash

Staff Report

A Highland

Park

resident has

been arrested

after his

involvement

in a car accident

that Orihuela

took place

July 4, according to a press

release from the Waukegan

Police Department.

Rudi Orihuela, 22, has

been charged with traffic

offenses, DUI and reckless

homicide at the Lake

County Illinois Bond

Court. He has been in police

custody since the accident

took place, in which

he was the driver. The accident

resulted in the death of

Javier Ocampo, a 22-yearold

man from North Chicago,

who was a passenger

in Orihuela’s vehicle.

The single-vehicle accident

took place in Waukegan,

in the area of N. Bonnie

Brook Lane and N. Lewis

Avenue, according to the

press release.

Investigators from the

Waukegan Police Department’s

traffic division believe

that Orihuela was driving

eastbound on N. Bonnie

Brook Lane “at a high rate

of speed,” according to the

press release, in a 2008

black Ford Fusion. They

believe he lost control of the

vehicle and struck a tree.

The accident happened at

approximately 10:45 p.m.,

and Orihuela and Ocampo

were transported to an area

hospital for injuries. Orihuela

was treated and released

with moderate injuries,

but Ocampo died from

his injuries at the hospital.

An autopsy took place

July 5 for Ocampo. It was

determined during the autopsy

that he died as a result

of multiple blunt force

injuries from the crash.

“We have been in close

contact with Mr. Ocampo’s

family and our deepest

condolences go out to them

during this difficult time,”

Lake County Coroner Dr.

Howard Cooper said in a

statement.

Investigators believe that

“speed and alcohol” are the

main contributors to the accident.

Highland Park parade serves as

‘homecoming’ for childhood friends

Eli Fraerman, Editorial Intern

While homecoming occurs

during the fall semester

at Highland Park High

School, long-time friends

Adam Hill and Noah Plotkin

experienced a different

type of homecoming when

they reunited to perform in

the Highland Park 4th of

July Parade with Dr. Mark

and the Sutures.

Plotkin and Hill, both

34, are professional musicians

but have taken different

career paths and

consequently not been able

to spend significant time

together since high school

when they played together

in their high school band.

Hill is an acoustic engineering

professor at Derby

University in England

while Plotkin is a professional

drummer, performing

most days of the week.

He is also the founder

of “Life Rhythms,” an

organization that offers

music as a form of

therapy, particularly aimed

toward seniors.

When they got together

on July 4, it was the first

time they played together

formally since their high

school days. Both had

played separately with Dr.

Mark and the Sutures, as

Mark Hill is Adam’s father,

but never at the same

time. Adam Hill started

playing with the band at 7

years old, while Noah has

filled in at various occasions

over the past several

years.

“We ran into each other

on Michigan Avenue a

couple years ago, I was

walking with my wife and

he was walking with his

wife,” Plotkin said. “We

were staring at each other

from across the street and

it’s like is it really you?

And it was really cool to

meet up with each other

right there.”

In regard to the 4th of

July, Hill and Plotkin were

undoubtedly excited to reunite

not only musically

but personally. While they

Dr. Mark and the Sutures performs, July 4, in the

Highland Park 4th of July parade through downtown

Highland Park. Mairead Kahn/22nd Century Media

haven’t played together in

years, Mark Hill and Plotkin

both expressed that the

dynamic of playing together

is easy as they all know

each other’s styles and

have a history of playing

Beatles Music, some of

which was featured during

the parade.

“It’s funny because

Adam grew up playing in

his dad’s band and they

always had a drummer

and whenever I was called

to play in that band the

drummer couldn’t make it

and Adam wasn’t around,

Plotkin said.” “Playing

altogether is dynamic,

it’s groovy. I always

liked jamming with family

members and playing

together, there’s nothing

better than that. We’re all

professionals.”

For Mark Hill, the parade

performance marked

Mosquitoes test positive for West

Nile virus in Highland Park

Highwood Chamber names

new member to board

Submitted Content

A mosquito pool (batch of

mosquitoes) sampled on June

13 in Highland Park, has tested

positive for West Nile virus. The

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.”

Practice the “4 Ds of Defense”

to protect yourself and your family

from mosquitoes:

Drain: Drain standing water

from items around your home,

yard, and business.

Defend: When outdoors, use

an insect repellent containing

DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon

eucalyptus, 2-undecanone, or

IR3535 and reapply according to

label directions.

Dawn and Dusk: Protect yourself

all day and night, and wear

repellent outdoors during these

prime times for mosquito activity.

Dress: Wear long sleeves,

pants, and closed toe shoes when

outdoors to cover your skin.

“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.

The program also monitors

reports of dead birds (an early

sign of the presence of the virus)

and investigates areas of stagnant

water for the presence of

mosquito larvae.

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

into NBJH 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 into any hallway

that allows further access

to schools.

Bike tour takes cyclists through history of HP

Hilary Anderson

Freelance Reporter

Highland Park resident

Stu Senescu had an idea of

a unique way to celebrate

the City’s sesquicentennial

anniversary. He wanted to

celebrate with an activity

near and dear to his

heart — bike riding. But

it wasn’t just any kind of a

bike ride.

“There was a recent

bus tour that took residents

past architecturally

and historically significant

houses in Highland

Park,” said Senescu, who

is a member of the Highland

Park Bike/Walk Advisory

Group (BWAG). “I

thought ‘Why not invite

our community’s bike riders

to do the same?’”

But there was a difference.

“This will be an informal,

free tour with no docents,

no free T-shirts or

water bottles,” Senescu

said. “Everyone is invited.”

Senescu and more than

30 of Highland Park’s bike

riders of all ages and sizes

showed up at City Hall

on June 29 for the HP150

Historical Bike Ride down

and around Highland Park

streets, passing by about

20 historic and architecturally

significant homes.

They rode past Frank

Lloyd Wright Prairie

School homes. The group

saw Italianate, Second

Empire homes and a Victorian

Gothic designed by

the Highland Park Building

Company.

There was the International

Style home by

Henry Dabsin and the Colonial

Revival by Heun &

Wolcott.

The tour continued.

“This tour like is riding

through the pages of history,”

said one rider.

Highland Park Police

officer Richard Rash and

Deputy Jon Lowman were

on their bikes at the head

and back of the group.

“We are providing safety

for this tour and promoting

bicycle safety in general,”

Lowman said. “We like

interacting with the community

in positive ways.”

He was riding an electric

bike donated last year by

the First Bank of Highland

Park.

“It is good for riding on

all terrains and in an emergency

will enable us to

make a quick response,”

he added.

The officers gave out

“Sweet Tickets” during the

tour to the children in the

group—all wore their helmets.

Sweet Tickets is a partnership

between Wendy’s

and the Highland Park Police

Department. They are

given to children whom

the police officers see doing

something positive.

“We stop them, talk

about what they are doing

that’s positive like helping

someone, doing chores or

wearing their helmets,”

said Deputy Chief Lowman.

The tour was a family

affair for many.

“We thought riding our

bikes together as a family

on such a beautiful day

could not be a nicer thing

for us to do,” Brent Ross

said.

He and wife, Megan,

rode with their daughters

Lily, 3 and Elle, 5.

“I love house tours in

any form,” said Kate Chen

whose daughter, Julia, 5

was pushing her pedals on

an attached bike.

“We have been on walking

tours before but never

one like this,” Ron Harroff

said.

“This is so much fun,”

Lenny and Rebecca Xavier look over the map, June 29,

before heading out on the Historical Bike Tour of Highland

Park. David Kraus/22nd Century Media

said Ilana Fisher, 7, who

was riding her own bike

with parents Rachel and

Danny Fisher.

Phil Kapan was among

the riders. He was on a

foldable bike.

“I can fold this bike, put

in a lightweight case and

carry it over my shoulder

on the Metra when I go to

work,” he said.

Kaplan volunteers with

a nonprofit group, Working

Bikes, which takes

no-longer wanted or used

bikes, repairs broken ones

and donates them to children

in underserved areas

in Chicago and countries

in Africa and Central

America.

Also in the group was

Kim Stone, Highland Park

councilwoman who is a

liaison to the Bike/Walk

Advisory Group (BWAG),

which is affiliated with the

City’s Transportation Advisory

Group.

Peggy Laemie, is another

avid bike rider on

the tour and member of

the BWAG and long-time

member of that same City

Transportation Advisory

Group.

“The group’s focus is

on increasing the visibility

and safety of non-automotive

travel,” Stone said.

Recent activities by the

Highland Park Bike/Walk

Advisory Group include

encouraging students to

bike back and forth to

school.

“We also promote road

sharing between cars and

bikes through new signage

and marking bike routes,”

Senescu said. “If we see

something that might add

to the safety of bike riding

or walking, we make those

suggestions to the city of

Highland Park.”

One of the most recent

suggestions that bike-riding

Highland Park residents

are applauding is the

placing of a seasonal bike

rack in one of the parking

spaces in front of the store,

That Little French Guy.

Highland Park’s Mayor

Nancy Rotering is similarly

excited about the HP150

Historic Bike Ride and the

involvement and suggestions

of the Bike/Walk Advisory

Group.

“We are very excited

to see this Historic Bike

Ride take place,” Mayor

Rotering said. “It takes

people past interesting

homes and gives them a

sense of the architecture

of Highland Park.”

HPHS principal prepares for second

year, first with permanent position

Erin Yarnall, Editor

At the start of last summer,

Debby

Finn, the

math chair

at Highland

Park High

School, was

named interim

principal

of the

Finn

school, while the district

searched for a replacement

after principal Elizabeth

Perez Robertson became

District 113’s assistant superintendent

of curriculum

and instruction last July.

“The school year had

pretty much ended, and

then we heard that our

principal was moving to

the administration building,

so it wasn’t like there

was a lot of processing

time,” Finn said. “Some of

my colleagues encouraged

me to consider it and I love

that they have faith in me

in that regard.”

Finn was chosen to

serve as the principal of

the school for the 2018-

2019 school year.

Prior to that, Finn

worked in Township High

School District 113 for

more than two decades.

After graduating from

college, the Deerfield High

band

From Page 6

a joyous reunion where

he was finally able to play

with his son and his son’s

long-time friend for the

first time.

“They [were] so excited

and I am just beside

myself because my son

and my son’s best friend

[played] with the band,”

Mark Hill said. “It’s just

School graduate worked in

Boston for a year before

returning to D113.

“When I was teaching

in Boston it was lovely,”

Finn said. “It was a similar

suburban community

school, but [District 113]

is like nothing I’ve ever

experienced from an educator’s

perspective as

far as the success of our

school.”

Finn worked as an aide

at Highland Park High

School before teaching

at Deerfield for 12 years.

Then she returned to

HPHS as the math department

chair for 10 years

before becoming interim

principal.

She said one of the

things that has kept her in

the district for so long is

the drive of the students.

“When we talk about

a love of learning — I’m

not saying every kid

would walk in my math

class thrilled to be there,

but they sure were invested

in the idea of working

with me, and learning and

growing,” Finn said. “The

kids are tremendous, I

can’t say enough about it.”

One of the most difficult

aspects of transitioning to

principal for Finn has been

not being able to be in a

serendipitous that everything

[came] together to

work out.”

Plotkin reiterated the

significance of the performance

for the two childhood

friends.

“The Beatles are super

fun to play and everyone

knows the Beatles, it’s going

to be a really fun time,”

Plotkin said. “This will be

an experience because we

haven’t jammed or played

classroom with students

every day.

“I have to really make

sure I’m making connections

with kids, because

I don’t have that natural

classroom connection with

them,” Finn said.

But Finn has learned

to adapt to the new job

— with some of the highlights

including classroom

observations.

“It’s real easy to brag

about HPHS,” Finn said.

“I’ve always known the

kids, the parents and the

community to be great,

and I’ve heard great things

about the school, but I

haven’t really been in our

social studies classrooms,

THE WILMETTE BEACON

Wilmette’s Actors Training

Center assists collegebound

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.

According to Dibo,

since then many of the

center’s top instructors are

approached by students to

help coach them in their

monologues and interview

skills in order to prepare

for college auditions.

“I saw the stress that this

was causing on the kids,”

Dibo said. “The students

wanted it so badly but the

parents didn’t quite know

what they needed.”

Students who want to

continue learning theater

in college go through a

complicated and arduous

process that far exceeds

the normal stress of college

applications.

THE LAKE FOREST LEADER

LFHS alum, lacrosse player

dies in wake surfing

accident

John “Jack” Ireland Adams,

20, of Lake Forest,

died at Clear Lake, Ind. on

June 29 while wake surfing,

one of his favorite activities.

Adams was born in

1998 in Indianapolis and

is preceded in death by

his grandparents, Robert

H. Adams and Joan I. Adams

and his aunt Debra

Adams. He is survived by

his parents, Richard and

Kristine, brother Connor

and sister Lindsay, grandparents

Gary and Suzi

Hewitt, aunt Kelly Mc-

Cabe (Paul), uncle Robert

Adams (Nancy), cousins

John and Kate McCabe,

Courtney, Kelsey and

Mackenzie Adams.

After graduating from

Lake Forest High School,

Adams attended The College

of Charleston.

Adams was passionate

about lacrosse and loved

every aspect of the game,

particularly the camaraderie

he enjoyed with his

teammates and coaches.

Adams was a four-year

varsity player for the

Scouts and in 2017 he was

named team captain, IHS-

LA All-State, IHSLA All-

Conference first team, and

was voted the team’s Most

Valuable Defenseman.

“Sweet Jack” had an infectious

smile, was quick

to make friends and was

a leader on the field as a

coach for The Lake Forest

Lacrosse Association.

Opportunities are

everywhere in HP

and Highwood

Erin Yarnall

Editor

Growing up, I lived

directly in between

Chicago and Milwaukee.

I felt blessed to be

able to visit two cultural

hubs with ease.

If I wanted to go to a

concert, it was basically

in my backyard (after a

50-minute drive). Same

with a museum, or a play.

Everything felt so close.

That was, until I started

working for The Landmark.

If residents want to go to

a concert, an art museum, a

go figure

8

play — it’s literally in their

backyards a lot of the time.

This fact resonated with

me this week when I went

to speak to the actors at 4

Chairs Theatre in Highwood.

The talented theatre

company was rehearsing

for their production of “Be

More Chill.”

The same musical is currently

running on Broadway,

but for a fraction of

the price, Highland Park

and Highwood residents

can travel a few minutes

to see it performed in the

company’s Highwood

space.

It is wild to be how

available and affordable

culture is here, and I feel

very lucky that I get to

experience it through my

work here at The Landmark.

Highwood theater company takes on Broadway musical

Erin Yarnall, Editor

Fans of the musical “Be

More Chill” don’t have to

rush out to Broadway to

see it before the show ends

its run in the New York

theater district next month.

Highwood-based theater

company 4 Chairs Theatre

is taking on the musical

which follows social outcast

Jeremy Heere, who

takes a pill, called a squip,

which will help him to become

more popular.

“The writer of the book

and the composer say this

is about beautiful, messy

people, and aren’t we all?

So we should celebrate

that,” said Lauren Rawitz,

the director of the production

and the founder of the

company.

One of the differences

between the Highwood

production and Broadway’s

is the age of the cast

members. The Broadway

cast is comprised of adults

playing high school students,

while Rawitz’s cast

features high school students

playing characters

their own age.

“It’s worth a watch because

we’re doing a very

different version of it compared

to what they do on

Broadway,” said Hanoko

Walrath, a recent Stevenson

High School graduate who

plays Christine in the musical.

“I think it’s just as good

because it’s a little more

real. We’re playing actors

of our age and Broadway

has actors in their upper

30s playing our age.”

There are other subtle

differences between the

two productions — including

the sets and props.

Because Rawitz didn’t

have a Broadway budget,

she had to improvise when

it came to some of her set

design.

In a scene that was supposed

to take place in a

bedroom, Rawitz set the

cast up with a yoga mat

and exercise ball, and had

the scene take place in a

home gym instead.

“You do what you’ve

got to do, right?” Rawitz

said.

Lake Forest native Anthony

DePew, now an

acting student at the University

of Minnesota, met

Rawitz while he was attending

Stevenson High

School, where she was formerly

the theater director

before branching out on

her own to start 4 Chairs

Theatre.

He said he enjoys coming

home for the summer

and being able to take part

in community productions,

such as “Be More Chill.”

“It’s such a nice environment,”

DePew said.

“[Rawitz] is so knowledgeable

about everything

about theater, and it’s always

such an easy process.”

Mundelein High School

student Matthew Callas

plays the main character,

Jeremy Heere. He heard

about the theater through

word-of-mouth and auditioned

with a friend for the

production this year.

Callas said he wasn’t a

fan of the musical when

he first heard it, but said it

grew on him over time.

Hanoko Walrath plays Christine in “Be More Chill”

which runs at 4 Chairs Theatre in Highwood through

July 28. Erin Yarnall/22nd Century Media

“When I heard I could

audition for it I gave it another

shot,” Callas said.

“Now I love it all and I

think it’s really fun.”

The musical features

music direction from Glenview

resident Aaron Kahn,

who previously worked

with the theater company

on their 2018 production

of “Spring Awakening.”

Awakening” it was a “nobrainer”

to be involved for

a second year.

He added that although it

was a different musical being

performed last year, he

was able to draw upon similarities

between the two in

order to direct the sound for

“Be More Chill.”

“One is a lot older of

a story and one is more

contemporary, but they

both have a contemporary

sound to it,” Kahn said.

For Kahn, the best part

of working with 4 Chairs

Theatre are the people he

has worked with, and the

amount of creativity they

put into their work.

“They’ve taken our

space in Highwood, which

is not normally a space for

theater, and have turned it

into a professional-quality

production,” Kahn said. “I

think that shows the effort

and the amount of professionalism

and creativity

that everybody in 4 Chairs

Theatre has.”

“Be More Chill” opens

July 11, and runs through

July 28 at 4 Chairs Theatre,

located at 410 Sheridan

Road. Tickets can be

Aboyer a ‘lively’ contribution to Winnetka culinary scene

Erin Yarnall

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.

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

from 1952-1954, Second Lieutenant, F Co. 86th Regiment, 10th Infantry Div. Upon

return he studied Polish at the Army Language School in Monterey, CA. He married

fellow Lake Geneva H.S. alumna Deirdre Allen in 1955. Their first child, Laura, was born in Frankfurt, Germany, where Bob was

stationed in Army Intelligence. In Germany they bought a Bechstein grand piano, as Deirdre had a Bachelor of Music degree in piano

performance and wanted to teach piano.

Upon return from Germany, Bob turned to civilian work but remained in the Army Reserve, attaining the rank of Major. In 1963 he

moved his family to Ft. Bragg, NC for 2 years in Army Intelligence, earning the Bronze Star Medal. Upon return from Ft. Bragg, he

settled his family (now 4 daughters) in Highland Park, working as Public Relations Director for St. Francis Hospital in Evanston; then

the Daniel Edelman public relations firm in Chicago, and later the Aaron D. Cushman firm.

Bob and Deirdre loved traveling and camping with their girls. Bob’s greatest passion was classical music, which sustained him til the

end. He was a discerning collector of vinyl recordings; he was an audiophile and built his own stereo speakers which lasted for decades.

Listening to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 or Puccini’s La Bohème brought tears to his eyes.

Tragically, in the prime of his life, Bob was in a car accident that resulted in a Traumatic Brain Injury. Although he had to leave the

profession he excelled in, he continued to support his family by working at other jobs until his retirement at age 65. His daughters are

grateful for his devotion and the many opportunities his hard work provided them.

He had fond memories of Lake Geneva and his days at UW Madison. Bob will be remembered for his quick wit and sense of humor,

resilience, courage, strength, intelligence, love of the outdoors and travel. He was proud of his four daughters and their accomplishments.

Preceded in death by Deirdre (2005); daughter Mary (2010); and sister Dorothy. Survived by loving daughters Laura, Andrea

(Christopher), Sarah; grandchildren Molly and Nico; niece Rosemary, nephews Michael and David.

Sincere thanks to the staff at N.C. Little Hospice in Edina for their expert and loving care of our Dad, and to the staff at Parkwood where

he thrived in the last two years. Memorials to the American Indian College Fund: collegefund.org. Condolences to National Cremation

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.”

Lachowicz said the dish

goes along with the ethos

of Aboyer — making the

customers want more.

“It’s one of those dishes

that when the last bite is

consumed, you want another

bite,” Lachowicz said.

We also sampled the restaurant’s

trout entree ($23),

served with a red miso

glaçage, an okra beignet,

pickled daikon radish and

edamame.

The Berkshire pork ($27) features grilled loin and Thaispiced

braised pork belly with a pomme puree, morels

and broccolini.

The Suffolk lamb ($25) showcases a grilled porterhouse

lamb over a bacon-braised red chard and sunchoke

puree.

The Suffolk lamb ($27),

with an English-inspired

name, is made of grilled

porterhouse lamb, a lamb

bacon-braised red chard,

sunchoke pureé and served

atop white beans.

The Berkshire pork

($27), which also takes its

name from an area in England,

features a grilled pork

loin and braised pork belly,

pomme pureé, and morels

alongside broccolini.

Aboyer surprised us with

the expertly plated octopus

carpaccio ($12), which is

the perfect choice if you’re

looking for an Instagramworthy

dish to consume.

The octopus is served

alongside avocado, serrano

pepper, green garlic, pickled

pearl onions, olive oil

and micro sorrel.

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Jason Polydoris

Polydoris is a rising junior on the Highland

Park cross-country and track teams.

How did you get started running

track?

I started running in middle school, I

didn’t take it that seriously, I just did it

because my friends did.

What’s your favorite part of

running track?

When I started in high school, I just noticed

that the results are directly proportional

to the effort you put in. It’s such a

measurable sport, if you put in the work

you’re going to improve, and I like that. It

gives you the opportunity to outwork your

opponent, where as in other sports, it’s not

always the case.

What’s the most challenging part

of running track?

Honestly, I might say the exact same

thing. You got to put in the work, it’s not

easy. During the summer I have to get up

at six in the morning to go to practice.

If you don’t put in the work, you’re not

going to see the results, whereas in other

sports you can depend on your teammate,

if you mess up or something you can pin it

on your team. In running, it’s just you, no

one else can take the blame besides you.

What’s the best coaching advice

you’ve ever gotten?

“Hard work beats talent over time when

talent doesn’t work hard.” It shows that

you need to be consistent, consistency is

key. There are guys who were better than

me freshman year, because I trained consistently

I outworked them. You got to be

consistent with your training, that doesn’t

just mean running every day, it means doing

all the little things.

Do you have any pregame rituals

or superstitions?

Usually before a race on the bus ride

to the meet, I’ll watch some races to get

22nd Century Media File Photo

hyped up for the meet. Usually I have one

pair of socks that I always wear for meets.

If you could play another sport

besides track, what would it be?

I use to play soccer, if it was in the fall

I’d do soccer instead of cross-country. In

the spring, maybe baseball. I’m not that

good at it, but I use to play Little League,

it was fun.

What’s your favorite place to eat?

Once Upon A Bagel. Our team goes

there after runs and we get breakfast. It’s

pretty good.

Who is your favorite athlete?

Probably Galen Rupp. He’s just been a

staple of American distance running for

the past eight years, he’s just been dominant.

He’s been pretty good.

If you won the lottery, what’s the

first thing you would buy?

I’d buy a house on a lake and get a

bunch of jetskis or something. I’d get a

super-nice boat, I’ve always wanted a

yacht or something.

If you could travel anywhere in the

world, where would you go?

Probably France just because the food

is amazing there.

The Varsity:

North Shore is

worth a listen

Take Me Out To The Ballgame

Giants battle Wilmette in Connie Mack doubleheader

Nick Frazier

Sports Editor

Have you been

searching for a

new podcast to

subscribe to? Are you

itching to know as much

as possible about North

Shore sports?

If you answered yes to

either one of those questions,

then you should

check out The Varsity:

North Shore, 22nd Century

Media’s podcast

dedicated solely to high

school sports in the area.

Each week, sports editors

Michal Dwojak, Michael

Wojtychiw and myself

discuss the latest happenings

from our local teams

and athletes.

Of course, there isn’t

a whole lot going on in

the summer, but we still

find plenty to talk about.

Recently, we did a deep

dive on the Illinois High

School Association, going

over what works for

the organization as well

as some things they can

improve on. How is there

STILL no shot clock in

basketball?

We’ll also be starting a

bracket of the best current

professional athletes for

the North Shore. If you’ve

ever wanted to hear three

grown men argue over

which pro athlete has had

the better career, this is

the podcast for you.

If that isn’t enough to

get you to listen, the high

school football season is

around the corner. The

Varsity will have way-tooearly

predictions, team

previews and more. There

isn’t a better resource

around for North Shore

football.

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.”

One of the odd benefits

for a pitcher sitting out due

to illness is a rested pitching

arm, a benefit Liepert

used for all it was worth

against Highland Park.

Liepert was excellent

on the mound against the

Giants in an 11-0 win for

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 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 One win.

Wilmette also won the

second game in five innings

by a score of 14-4,

with 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,” 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 two win.

IHSA releases 2019 Giants schedule

Nick Frazier, Sports Editor

The countdown to the

start of the high school

football season is underway,

and with the IHSA

announcing the team

schedules on June 26, the

excitement is ramping up.

The IHSA revealed

Highland Park’s schedule

this upcoming fall,

and there is plenty to take

away from it. The Giants

open the season on Aug.

30 hosting Wheeling at

Wolters Field. They’ll

begin conference play at

Maine East on Sept. 27,

then close out the season

with three-straight home

games.

Highland Park coach

David Lindquist noted that

the team’s schedule is a

tough one, as the Giants

look to bounce back from

a 4-5 season a year ago.

“It’s going to be a tough

year,” Lindquist said.

“We’ve got some strong

opponents, especially in

our non-conferecne schedule

and our NSL crossover.

The conference is getting

stronger and stronger every

year, it’s definitely going

to be a week-by-week

scenario where we need to

focus on each opponent,

we expect their best.”

Those final three games

in friendly confines should

prove to be valuable as

the Giants hunt a playoff

berth. Highland Park will

host Niles North, Deerfield

and Maine West in the last

three weeks of the regular

season. Lindquist hopes

the HPHS fans can come

out strong for what should

be crucial games.

“It will depend on how

much we can get our community

to rally behind us,”

Lindquist said. “As long as

we can do a good job in the

preseason and start off our

conference well and get

our fans behind us, I think

those last few games they

can really prove to be the

12th man if they come out

ready to go and support

us.”

Some juicy matchups

are at the tail end of the

schedule, like a battle with

the rival Warriors and a

challenging game versus

Maine West. It will be

tempting for some of the

Giants to focus too much

on those contests.

That’s why Lindquist

really wants to emphasize

taking things a day at a

time this season.

“Right now the nice

thing about summer is that

we’re working all summer

to get better, but our focus

is really on Wheeling,”

Lindquist said. “When we

get through that week, then

the focus will be on the

next opponent. Each week

we really just have to put

an emphasis on what we

have to do week-by-week

and step-by-step in order

to be successful.”

The schedule may be

out, but the Giants still

have plenty of work to do

until Aug. 30. Lindquist

says the team has spent

their summer practice sessions

implementing the

offensive and defensive

schemes they’ll run this

fall.

“I’ll just say that at

this point, we’ve grown

and we’re starting to take

strides in the direction we

want to go as a team,”

Lindquist said. “In terms

of individuals, we’re going

to have to wait and

see how things play out in

competition. I’m confident

that we have strong senior

leadership and some guys

who know how to get this

ship set in the right direction.”

Gilling brings winning pedigree up to Wisconsin

Nick Frazier, Sports Editor

It’s not everyday that a

state champion walks the

halls of Highland Park

High School.

So when Taylor Gilling

won state titles in the Class

3A 100-meter and 200-meter

races on May 18, it was

a special occasion. Gilling

dominated at the state

meet at Eastern Illinois

University to finish her

high school track career

with four state medals,

making her the most successful

sprinter in school

program history.

Of course, Gilling isn’t

done yet. She’ll be taking

her talents an hour and 45

minutes north to the Univesity

of Wisconsin-Madison,

where she’ll continue

competing in sprints for

the Badgers.

Running track for a

Division-I program was a

goal of Gillings ever since

an injury shortened her

sophomore season.

“It started for me after

my injury when I started

to take track seriously,”

Gilling said. “I realized

how much I was improving,

when I started running

24s (in the 200), that was

great.”

Going into her junior

year 100 percent healthy,

Gilling burst onto the

scene. She ended up placing

fourth in state in the

100-meter dash and finishing

.16 of a second behind

the first-place runner in the

200-meter dash that year.

Gilling’s strong junior

campaign made her a top

target for Division-I programs

in the Midwest.

With so many options,

Gilling committed to

Wisconsin-Madison by

National Signing Day on

Nov. 14. She joins a program

that placed seventh

at the Big Ten Outdoor

Championships and had

three athletes compete in

the NCAA Outdoor Championships.

The Badgers’ team atmosphere

and athletic facilities

stood out to Gilling

during the recruiting

process.

“First it was the team

and the culture and everything,

the sense of community

is through the roof,

that really drew me in,”

Gilling said. “The equipment

there is off the chain,

it’s top-notch equipment

there, I know that it will

help me, it’s great.”

The campus is less than

two miles from home, and

the academics are excellent,

but Gilling insists that

the culture at the school is

what got her to commit.

She visited Wisconsin-

Madison on a Saturday

when the football team

was set to play at home.

Gilling says the Badgers’

school spirit is something

she’s very excited for.

Not only will she race

against some of the top

sprinters in the country in

college, but Gilling will

also go through the nursing

program at Wisconsin-

Madison. Her coursework

combined with her training

schedule will be time-consuming,

but like always,

Gilling is up for the challenge.

“I’ve heard (it’s difficult),

but they said they

have a bunch of plans for

me and they’ll work out

my schedule there,” Gilling

said. “I know it’s possible,

so I’m confident.”

Gilling’s confidence

likely stems from her time

at Highland Park High

School. Some sprinters

may have never rebounded

state titles at Highland Park High School. 22nd Century Media file photo

from an injury that cut their

sophomore season short,

but Gilling did that and

more. Her time of 23.10 in

the 200-meter dash at the

state meet is a state record.

The state champion says

she is thankful for her

time spent with her Giants

teammates, whether it be

in relays or in practice.

“They pushed me, they

prepared me mentally

and physically of course

in workouts and such, as

you’d expect,” Gilling

said. “They taught me how

to discipline myself, time

management and stuff like

that.”

Giants’ offense struggles versus Waves

Gary Larsen

1st-and-3

Top three giants

football games

1. October 18 vs.

Deerfield, 7 p.m.

The Giants face

their district rivals

in the penultimate

game of the

season. The

Warriors won 18-6

last year.

2. October 25 vs.

Maine West, 7

p.m. The final

game of the

regular season

versus Maine

West will likely

have some playoff

implications

involved.

3. October 4 at

Vernon Hills, 7.

In last year’s

game, these two

teams combined

for 74 points, and

this year’s contest

should be another

barn-burner.

Highland Park went into

its doubleheader against

the Wilmette Waves with a

5-2 record in Connie Mack

play, but they struggled on

the road, losing the first

game 11-0 and the second

14-4 on July 1.

“It was obviously a

tough day today,” Highland

Park coach Jason

Newburger said. “Our bats

got a lot better in Game

Two 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

Waves ace Jack Liepert

threw five innings of nohit

ball in the 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, Wilmette’s

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,” Wilmette head

coach Mike 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

and some guys who know how to get this ship set in
