American Legion in New Lenox welcomes home soldier

Mary Compton

Freelance Reporter

The sound of Lee

Greenwood’s “God Bless

the USA” could be heard

as motorcycles pulled into

the Thomas E. Hartung

American Legion Post

1977 Saturday, July 6.

The bikes, as well as

military vehicles from

Veteran’s Garage — a

nonprofit run by former

Mokena Mayor Joe Werner

— escorted Master

Sgt. Robert Head USAF.

His mother, Kris Metzger,

from Manhattan, helped

organize the welcome

home party. Head is from

Florida.

“This means a lot to

have my son home today,”

Metzger said. “This

is huge, my whole family

is here. I wanted to do this

welcome home to show my

granddaughters what we

do for our veterans. These

veterans are not forgotten.

It’s a cool thing we do to

welcome them home.”

Metzger, along with other

members of Thomas E.

Hartung American Legion

Post 1977, planned the

welcome home for Head.

He has done a total of four

tours overseas, with the

most recent in Jordan in

2018.

“I never get to see him

come home, so when he

comes to visit I planned

this,” Metzger said. “We

actually did one eight

years ago when he came

back from Afghanistan.

We did that one in Mokena

and it was a great turnout.

The young veterans are the

future.”

As presentations to Master

Sgt. were being made,

one of the presenters, John

Cap, from Frankfort, said

he does not get tired of the

welcome home parties for

the veterans.

“To be able to show our

appreciation to our young

men and women who are

still holding the candle,”

John said. “I wasn’t old

enough to understand Vietnam

when those guys were

coming home and being

belittled. My cousin Ken

Patton is still missing in

Vietnam, he went down in

1968. I wear his bracelet to

this day.”

John is the Assistant

Riders Director for Thomas

E. Hartung American

Legion Post 1977 in New

Lenox. He and his wife,

Tina, dedicate their life to

veterans. Both have taken

part in over 100 welcome

home parties.

“I am for our veterans,”

John said. “I serve with

pride and our men and

women now serve with

pride, they should never be

chastised again.”

The Caps are a military

family — the oldest son

comes home from Kuwait

soon — the middle son

is serving in Kuwait and

the youngest son Bruno

is leaving for the Marine

Corps. next year.

“I want to know they

are remembered,” Tina

added. “We appreciate

giving up their life. They

leave their family at home

at go for six, nine or 12

months at a time then

come back and we want to

Open Horse Show at Francis Field

benefits different foundations

Sean Hastings, Editor

Even with temperatures

blistering into the 90s and

severe thunderstorms racing

in to disrupt the afternoon,

it did not stop from

hundreds from attending

the Will County Trail Riders

Open Horse Show at the

Francis Field, June 30.

Temperatures were so

hot that saddles were sliding

on horses and people

and horses were sweating

and drinking water any

chance they had.

A portion of the proceeds

from the event benefited

the New Beginnings Therapeutic

Riding Foundation

and their Veterans Riding

program.

The program works with

veterans in the PTSD program,

rider John Greenan

said.

Greenan took second

place in one of his classes.

“I think it went really

well, especially with the

heat. It was a really good

showing,” Greenan said

about the day. “The more

people in the arena, it tends

to get a little more difficult.

But this is an open show.

It’s open to the public in

any of the area.”

Greenan is apart of a

group called NOVA Quarter

Horses — a program

based out of Mokena.

NOVA Quarter Horses

had 13 riders competing

in the events. One of those

competitors was Mokeka

resident Samantha Jendersak,

a 12-year-old and future

7th grader at Martino

Junior High School.

Samantha has been riding

horses since she was 2

years old and competing

in the Novice Walk/

Trot and the Youth Walk/

Trot on Sunday.

“It was really fun. I enjoy

[competing] with my

horse,” she said. “It was really

hot, but it’s a lot of fun

doing it. It’s a bit nervous

when you’re just warming

up, but once you’re out

there, it just changes and

you’re just focused on your

horse and nothing else.”

It took her horse some

time to settle down, which

was put together by John

Roberts and Brian Kirk.

The march, held in Homer

Glen, brought in 700 people,

and Roberts said one

had to be there to understand

how amazing it was.

After the Roberts and

the Kirks met a few times

to help each other through

their grieving, they knew

that more needed to be

done. HERO offers support

to families with members

struggling with addiction

as well as grief support

for families who have lost

someone because of addiction.

Family support meetings

— which allow both the addict

and families to meet at

the same place, same time,

but in different rooms —

are held from 7-8:30 p.m.

on the second and fourth

Tuesday of each month at

the Lincolnway Christian

Church, 690 E. Illinois

Highway in New Lenox.

The Lincolnway Christian

Church donated

$10,000 years ago to

HERO.

Grief support meetings

are held from 7-8:30

p.m. on the first and third

Tuesday of each month at

Calvary Church, 16100 S.

104th Ave. in Orland Park.

The meetings are free.

“Our mission is to help

the families,” Roberts said.

“We’re not treatment counselors,

we’re not HA — that

is separate. Anywhere we

encounter families, we tell

people about each other.

“We have a grief counselor

from a local treatment

center and one of the board

members is always there.

It’s just inviting people to

come and feel welcome and

understand there are people

there that can help you with

your family’s disease and

people to help with the

family member’s disease.”

The family support

group teaches different topics

on how to deal with the

disease and the other half of

the meeting is an open discussion

for families to talk

about anything that is on

their mind.

Roberts hopes to bring

in more guest speakers

and grow attendance even

more.

“There are drug counselors,

a board member and

families,” he said. “Everyone

is talking and can build

off another. We have the

counselor as the referee and

be careful to not give bad

advice. [Families] are hurting

enough already.”

HERO does refer people,

but they do tell people

about the Substance Abuse

and Mental Health Services

Administration, where they

can put their zip code in and

see a list of treatment facilities

in the area.

“At family support what

we tell them is for them to

understand the disease and

come to grips with it and

get their energy and own

health back because of the

codependency,” Roberts

said. “It will pull you like it

did for us. It will pull you

down to the point where

you just don’t know what

you’re doing.”

He said there was nothing

he wouldn’t have done

to save his son. But the

question came up if what

he was doing in a way enabled

his son’s addiction.

And that is also discussed

at the meetings.

Roberts also teaches Naloxone

seminars at different

schools, police stations,

and more. Naloxone is used

to treat narcotic overdose

in an emergency situation.

His goal is to have people

trained to use the “NAR-

CAN” kit — a more common

name for Naloxone.

Twice in the last year,

two different people saved

someone’s life less than 48

hours of being certified.

Another person who has

dealt with loss, Jennifer

Amato, an Orland Park

resident, is getting involved

with HERO. Amato has

lost both of her brothers

to heroin overdoses. One

brother in October 2010

and one this past March.

She had Roberts come

to her school, the University

of St. Francis, to

teach a Naloxone seminar

in March. Twenty two students

were certified and after

she asked how she could

be involved with volunteer

work, but three days later

is when her second brother

died of an overdose.

She has not been able to

volunteer yet, but still plans

to. She is working toward

being a social worker.

“When I actually get to

be able to do these education

seminars and training

for HERO, I think it will

make a big difference for

me,” she said. “Lightning

struck my family not once,

but twice.”

She added that people

cannot be naive that there’s

no chance that it would

happen to their family.

“It doesn’t matter where

you come from, you’re socioeconomic

status, your

race, your age, your sex,

orientation, if you use it

once, there’s a pretty good

chance you get hooked,”

Amato said. “It takes over.”

Amato loves Roberts for

what he does.

“He has a heart of gold,”

Amato said. “He is willing

to go above and beyond

to help save lives even

though he unfortunately he

couldn’t save his dear son.”

Amato turned 24 years

old June 28 — the age her

Local cancer-fighting event

running strong since 2008

Will O’Brien

Freelance Reporter

Just over a decade since

its start, Relay for Life

New Lenox has raised

nearly a million dollars.

With this year’s event

set for Friday, July 12, at

Lincoln-Way West High

School, organizers are

celebrating the pending

milestone and remembering

what’s happened to

get them there.

“If you talk to anyone

in this town, everybody

knows someone who’s

been affected by cancer,”

said Maureen James, an

event co-chair whose

daughter survived a highrisk

form of leukemia.

The James family got

involved shortly after

New Lenox’s Relay became

independent of

Frankfort’s in 2008. They

were invited to a previous

Relay by family friends

whose daughter had died

of cancer. The experience

was so touching, they

formed their own team

the following year and

have since made Relay

a staple of their summer

schedule.

“If you want to be part

of something bigger than

yourself, contribute to

your local neighborhood,

this event does that,” said

Relay for Life New Lenox

6 p.m. Friday, July 12-1 a.m. Saturday, July 13

Lincoln-Way West High School, 21701 S. Gougar

Road

Free admission

James, explaining Relay

events have a stronger

sense of community than

their large-scale counterparts

downtown, featuring

plenty of familiar

faces and area businesses

as sponsors. “Being a

community event is what

makes it so great.”

Though modest when

compared with the biggest

cancer fundraising

events, local Relays are

no slouch.

New Lenox’s will feature

at least 35 teams and

more than 225 individuals,

said Terrie Murphy,

an event co-chair whose

husband died of cancer in

November 2017. Murphy,

her family and friends

participate as a team

called Murph’s Minions

that numbers 20 strong.

“I have a 9-year-old

granddaughter who’s

pretty much been doing

this since she was born,”

Murphy said. “She goes

to school and tells people

she works for Relay for

Life.”

In addition to James and

Murphy, a committee of

more than a dozen other

organizers also help plan

and perfect the evening.

The signature fundraising

for the American Cancer

Society, Relay for Life

events are held throughout

the country and had raised

more than $410 million

for cancer research as of

2018, according to the

ACS website.

This year’s New Lenox

Relay will feature children’s

games, face-painting,

a bouncy- house, disk

jockey, concessions, raffle

baskets and more. The

opening ceremony, led

by several inspirational

speakers, starts at 6 p.m.

The luminaria ceremony,

in which those gathered

light lanterns in honor

of loved ones, will start

at dusk. Both James and

Murphy said the luminaria

portion of the evening

is its most impactful.

“That ceremony is just

really special,” Murphy

said, explaining it’s often

accompanied with a

slideshow and reading of

names. A survivor’s dinner

event is also held in

the lead-up to the Relay,

Murphy said.

Both women stressed

the event is not a race.

“It’s not a race you run,

it’s a race to find a cure

for cancer,” James said.

“So whether you can walk

the track of not is irrelevant.”

With the million-dollar-fundraising

mark set

to be exceeded through

this year’s event, the two

women said they hope the

event carries on as long as

it’s needed.

“A lot of people still

don’t know that we’re

there,” James said. “We’re

there to celebrate.

We’re there to remember.

We’re there to support

those fighting. The people

who come, they always

come back.”

With new summer

schedules, fun destinations

like the beach, unlimited Weekend

rides for just $10, and free rides for kids 11 and

under with an adult through Labor Day, Metra is

horse performed better

in the Novice Walk/Trot

which happened later.

“In the Youth Walk/Trot,

he was a bit nervous so he

was getting a little faster

and you’re supposed to be

a lot slower than that,” Samantha

said. “[The judge]

told me if I could slow him

down, I would do much

better. So once we got to

the Novice Walk/Trot and

slowed him down a lot

more, he did a lot better.”

Also competing at the

show was her older sister

Madison, a 15-year-old at

LW Central. Once Samantha

saw her riding and competing

at a young age, she

wanted in on it.

Part of what made Sunday’s

show special was

because it was a little more

laid back and gave people,

who may not want to or

cannot afford to compete in

the bigger shows, a chance

to practice and have fun,

Madison said.

“It’s a nice one for everyone

to come to and not just

people who always compete

their horses,” Madison

said.

The girls’ mom, Kim,

joked that the “threat”

when they were younger

was that they would not be

able to go to horse riding

that week. It worked out.

The two also share the

same horse, because they

compete in different age

groups.

“Once you start, you

can’t stop,” Madison said.

“I got hooked right away. I

started working when I was

younger and we kept going

up and made the show

team. I practically live at

the barn. You just want to

be with the horses all day.

We do stuff for little kids

now too and do camps. Everyone

can come. We got

into it because it’s so open

and welcoming.”

“Without people like

John and organizations like

HERO, I probably would

have lost hope because of

how powerful this epidemic

is,” she said.

She looks forward to being

involved with HERO.

“I’m really hopeful that

my story will make a difference,”

she said. “John is

great, he is passionate, has

a huge heart, but I think for

a young person such as myself,

being willing to speak

up and fight against it, [will

make a big impact] too.”

The name HERO was

chosen for a reason — the

word epidemic had to be

in it — and it had to mean

something.

“Anyone who joins

this fight is a hero,” Roberts

said. “You’re fighting

against this evil thing that is

killing people. We’re going

to keep busy.”

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Uproar over use of

Confederate group for

Fourth of July event

The Southwest Suburban

Activists group issued

on its Facebook page July

2 a call for the Village of

Mokena to “not glorify the

Confederacy” by allowing

the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry

to participate in firing of

cannons during Mokena’s

Fourth of July events.

Emily Biegel, the group’s

director, said the use of the

2nd Kentucky Cavalry was

“inappropriate and insensitive”

to members of the

community.

She went on to lament

a lack of response in other

recent racial incidents —

including two separate

rounds of swastika vandalisms

and an incident in

which three Lincoln-Way

Central students were publicly

spotted wearing what

appeared to some to be

blackface — from the Village’s

leadership.

Mokena Mayor Frank

Fleischer defended the use

of the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry

by reiterating previous

responses that “Everyone

has a right to their beliefs.”

Fleischer said there was

“no way in heck” that he

supported slavery, but he

supports keeping our nation’s

history alive — “the

good and the bad” —

through monuments, documents

and other public displays,

lest the public “lose

its reference point” for such

events.

The 2nd Kentucky Cavalry

group on its website

declares: “We chose to be

Confederates because they

fought hard for what they

believed in — protecting

their homes, states’ rights,

equal treatment in commerce,

elimination of illegal

tariffs, and preservation

of the agricultural way of

life.”

FROM THE FRANKFORT STATION

Police stress road safety

after teen was hit by

vehicle

The Frankfort Police

Department is urging Old

Plank Road Trail users

to remember to yield the

right-of-way to traffic following

a June 30 accident

involving a teenager on a

bicycle who collided with

a vehicle.

Frankfort Deputy Police

Chief Kevin Keegan told

The Frankfort Station the

incident took place at approximately

12:45 p.m.,

when a 14-year-old cyclist

traveling eastbound on the

trail rode into the path of

a vehicle traveling southbound

on Elsner Road.

“The juvenile bike rider

never stopped at the stop

sign and rode directly

in front of the vehicle,”

Keegan said.

The teen suffered head

and soft tissue injuries in

the collision, and was taken

to Silver Cross Hospital for

treatment.

Keegan said the incident

has been turned over to an

accident reconstruction

team, and the police department

is waiting for the

investigation to be completed.

At this time, no charges

or citations have been issued.

During the July 1 Frankfort

Village Board meeting,

Frankfort Police Chief John

Burica stressed that it was

important for trail users to

slow down when crossing

the street, and that drivers

had a responsibility to

yield.

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

TPPD’s Shervino named

Illinois’ top DARE instructor

Tinley Park Police Officer

Bob Shervino has

always had two passions:

police work and teaching.

He has combined the interests

to great impact as a

longtime DARE program

instructor. So much so that

in June he was selected

from more than 100 candidates

as the Illinois DARE

Officer of the Year.

Shervino — who grew

up admiring an uncle who

was a sergeant in the Tinley

department, and became an

Orland Hills cadet in 1995

— had his name raised by

his colleagues and a number

of local teachers whose

classrooms he has graced

over the years. He was formally

presented with the

award at the annual DARE

and Juvenile Officers Conference

in Peoria.

For Shervino, being an

impactful instructor has

come down to a personable

approach and interest in

making a difference in the

lives of the more than 5,500

children he has taught.

Tinley Park’s DARE program

reaches nearly 1,000

students in a calendar year,

Shervino said.

“I think it’s made me a

better person, and I hope

it’s made me a better parent,”

he said.

FROM THE ORLAND PARK PRAIRIE

Delivery driver allegedly

tried to kidnap female in

Orland Park

A delivery driver was

arrested July 2 after he allegedly

tried to kidnap a

female two days prior in

Orland Park.

Sofiane Mansouri, 34, of

1237 W. 31st Place, Apt. 1,

in Chicago, was charged

with attempted kidnapping,

a Class 3 felony, according

to a press release issued

July 3 by the Orland Park

Police Department.

Mansouri reportedly

pulled up to the female —

Sgt. Wayne Lee declined to

provide a specific age but

said she is an adult — in the

early morning hours of June

30 while driving a white

box truck in the 11400

block of 143rd Street. The

female was walking eastbound,

and Mansouri asked

if she was OK, police said.

The female said she was

fine and not in need of help,

according to the release.

Mansouri then drove past

her and parked the truck on

the side of the road, got out

of the truck and approached

her, again offering help, police

said. When the female

insisted she did not need

help, Mansouri allegedly

grabbed her and carried her

back to the truck.

The female was able to

stop Mansouri from opening

the truck door and

eventually broke free of his

grip, police said. She contacted

police, who were later

able to identify the truck

and driver.

Mansouri was arrested

July 2 without incident after

he came to the police

station, according to Lee.

FROM THE HOMER HORIZON

Vietnam veteran, 84,

receives Honor Flight

It was a thrill a long time

in the making, and it is one

he will not soon forget.

Jack McCarthy, 84, a

Vietnam veteran from

Homer Glen, recently returned

from a trip courtesy

of Honor Flight Chicago.

McCarthy served in the

U.S. Navy for 23 years,

working in naval intelligence

mainly during the

Vietnam War. He served

seven years on active duty,

and the remainder on active

reserves.

Jack began his service

March 4, 1957 and retired

23 years later as a lieutenant

commander in the Navy.

The Honor Flight, which

boarded June 5 via Southwest

Airlines at Chicago

Midway International Airport,

had three World War

II veterans, 14 Korean War

veterans and 86 Vietnam

veterans from the Army,

Coast Guard, Marine

Corps, Navy and Air Force.

The trip took place a day

before the 75th anniversary

of D-Day.

McCarthy recalled what

stood out to him the most

from the one-day trip to

Washington, D.C.

“Each time we got on or

off the bus, there would be

a long line of people waiting

to talk to you and thank

you. It was very nice of

them. It was great.”

to welcome home

soldiers and to thank them

This also helps prevent

Letter to the editor

R.I.P. to our innocent dog Jack

Dear editor,

Jackson was a happy

dog, greeting the day with

a dance despite arthritic

hips. Jack loved people,

especially kids, and the

kids loved him back. “Is it

a tiger?” “No, he’s a retired

racing greyhound. He has

tiger stripes because he’s

a red brindle.” During his

younger years, Jack was an

ambassador for greyhound

adoption, always friendly

to people and other pets. A

quiet boy, he rarely barked

and never disturbed the

neighbors. Our neighbors

are mostly good folks adhering

the neighbor golden

rule, “I don’t bother you,

you don’t bother me.” Except

for one week a year,

when they break that rule.

He was always afraid of

thunder and fireworks, but

for 10 years we got him

through it. Our plan this

year went awry when the

neighborhood fireworks

started at 11 a.m. Instead

of keeping him sedated and

calm for 4-5 hours, now it

was 12. The fireworks this

year were louder than ever,

welcomed home a soldier

after his fourth tour. His

mom, who lives in Manhattan

with his step dad,

helped organize the event

with other members of the

Legion.

The soldier, Robert

Head, has never actually

lived in Illinois himself.

Which goes to show how

special a place like the

Legion is that they will

take in anyone like that.

While there are differing

political views about

the topic of war, at the

rattling windows and shaking

the house to the foundation.

Come dusk, it sounded

like an artillery barrage,

north, east, south, west,

and we were in the middle

of a battlefield. Nothing

we did calmed him. He

hung in there for 10 hours

of torture, twice what we

expected. At that point, he

became consumed by fear,

not even realizing we were

in the room. Had the assault

ended, we could have

still brought him through

it, but it was unrelenting.

His panting became

hoarse and frantic, pacing

incessant. Eventually, he

dropped to the floor, panting

like a runaway locomotive.

An hour or more

later, the panting stopped,

his heart stopped, and the

fear left his body. The fireworks

continued. It was a

gruesome death that this

happy, friendly boy did not

deserve.

In hindsight, we think of

100 things we could have

done differently, had we

known the outcome. But

we were not wrong, we

were under assault. We

end of the day the legion

is there to welcome them

home on the chance

there is no one else to do

so.

One of the event organizers

said that his cousin

is still missing from the

war in Vietnam — which

at the time he was

not old enough to understand

the belittling they

faced when coming home

from that war. So, he

wears his bracelet to this

day.

So it is a little extra

special for him and Head

to show young men and

women that there are

people out there who care

and will welcome them

back in open and loving

arms.

Not everyone is going

to always agree on a

certain topic, war being

one of them, but a day

like that when a man or

woman returns after years

away to be hugged by a

mother, a father, a best

friend, has to be a little

heartwarming.

were in our own home,

minding our own business.

You neighbors (more than

one family, and perhaps

more than ½ mile away)

were wrong. Your criminal

disregard for the law killed

our Jack.

I don’t believe you

would torture and kill our

dog intentionally. Your illegal

‘harmless fun’ had

grievous unintended consequences:

You killed my

dog. I’m writing this so

you, and others, know your

actions are far from harmless.

If you lit one illegal

firework, you are culpable,

whether it was Jack or

some other innocent you

tortured. I sincerely hope

you have a conscience and

the remorse hangs heavy.

SPOTLIGHT

Tinley Court stands out

in crowded field

Among a growing

landscape of senior-living

facilities, Tinley

Court is much like its

residents: wiser, more

experienced and thriving.

Tinley Court, 16301

Brementowne Road in

Tinley Park has been

serving the senior

community as an

independent living

complex for 35 years and

prides itself on offering

support services unique

for independent providers.

At Tinley Court,

residents pay an all-inclusive

monthly rate that

comes with three meals

a day in a dining-room

setting, utilities and

weekly housekeeping,

as well as access to

in-house amenities like

a library, beauty shop,

movie center, cafe,

chapel and more.

There are also scheduled

outings and activities

for Tinley Court

residents.

One of the newest —

and most important —

support services at

Tinley Court is its

Wellness Center, which

connects residents with

physicians and nurses.

The Wellness Center

features a nurse practitioner

as well as visits

from specialists, like a

foot doctor, audiologist,

physical therapist and

more.

“We saw that there was

definitely a need [for a

Wellness Center],” said

Cindy Stephens, Director

of Community Relations.

“Especially in the winter

time, cold and flu

season, a lot of residents

need to get to a doctor.

... Having nurse practitioners

and doctors

available has really

prevented a lot of unnecessary

hospital visits and

that’s a plus for everybody

involved.”

Stephens also made

sure to point out the

Tinley Court staff, which

she said sets the

community apart in a

crowded market.

“The staff is incredible;

they go above and

beyond,” she said. “... We

are more of a family-type

of community.”

Tinley Court offers a

variety of living options,

and currently has available

limited double unit,

which are twice the size

of a standard room.

Also right now, new

residents can get a

month of free rent after

the third month of

residency.

Stephens said Tinley

Court calls itself a “veteran-first

community” and

works with military

veterans and their

spouses to secure financial

aid.

NL resident offering to paint

variety of portraits for others

Sean Hastings, Editor

Danny Fox has been doing

art forever, but just got

into the painting aspect of

it four years ago.

And now he is using his

painting talents to do projects

for other residents.

His specialties include

portraits and pets, but is up

to painting anything anyone

wants.

“The weirder the better,”

he said with a laugh.

He said when he started

he wanted to just do portraits

because they are fun,

but people seem to really

enjoy the pet route — reiterating

that he will paint

just about anything for

anyone.

He just enjoys making

concrete visual memories

for people, he said. And

part of making those concrete

visual memories, is

him combining different

images.

“For example, if you

have a favorite picture

of your dad, but he never

went to the Grand Canyon,

but always wanted to

go to the Grand Canyon, I

can put your father in the

Grand Canyon,” Fox said.

“I can make you into your

favorite Harry Potter character

or something. If you

can dream it, I will paint

it.”

All of his artworks come

at a cost and typically depend

on the size of the

painting that is done.

Fox said he is his own

worst critic and thinks his

paintings are OK and is

still learning a little bit, but

some people’s reactions to

the gifts he presents them

makes it worth it.

Danny Fox touches up on a painting he recently

made. Fox is open to painting anything that a resident

wants painted. Costs vary on size. Photos by Sean

Hastings/22nd Century Media

Danny Fox plays a Bob Dylan song on the guitar.

“When people who want

one of their loved one or

their pet, receive it, they’re

astonished and sometimes

there are tears,” he said.

“It validates a good feeling

that I can illuminate

someone’s life like that

for them. It’s a nice thing

to do.”

Guitar and songs

Not only does Fox know

how to bring a masterpiece

to life with a paint brush,

he is also a musician and

has opened for a number

of acts.

He has opened for Ramblin’

Jack Elliot, Buddy

Guy, Joan Baez and others.

And his reason for starting

music was as simple as a

love for Bob Dylan.

“I liked Bob Dylan a lot

so I figured I’d play the

guitar,” he said.

After starting to learn

the guitar in 2004, he

has made two albums —

working on a third — and

has 200 songs that he has

written.

He is proud of the albums

he has made because

of the time and work he

puts into them, but his

greatest memory is away

from that.

and 2 p.m. July 14

Phone: (708) 607-2281

Web: ccctheatre.com

When Disney’s animated

feature film “Frozen”

hit theatres in 2013 it was

another instant classic for

the studio that seemingly

only creates instant classics.

Now, Curtain Call Theatre’s

Emily McCabe

Musical Theatre Program

is giving audiences in

the southwest suburbs a

chance to see “Frozen Jr.,”

a musical adaptation of the

film that made its premiere

on Broadway in 2018

Playing the lead of Elsa

is Lexi Gilboe, 14, of New

Lenox.

She said she’s had plenty

of opportunities to watch

the hugely popular Disney

movie in advance of her

performance and connects

with her character on a personal

level.

“She displays a lot of

emotion,” Gilboe said.

“She shows love for her

sister, but, at the same time,

she’s scared of what she

could do.”

“I’m not going to lie,

it’s a lot sometimes. But I

always practice and read

through the script all the

time. I think the whole

thing is don’t practice until

you get it right; practice until

you can’t get it wrong.”

As an incoming freshman

at Lincoln-Way West,

this will be her final performance

with Curtain Call

Theatre’s Emily McCabe

Musical Theatre Program.

“But I’m excited because

I get to do my last show

with my friends,” she said.

Ava and Brian Cummins,

14-year-old twins

from New Lenox, play

Little Anna and Hans of the

Southern Isles, respectively.

The pair have had plenty

of experience acting, but

admitted this performance

is slightly more intense for

them.

“We’ve been [acting]

basically our whole lives,”

Ava said.

“I like the pressure,”

Brian said. “It’s a thrill.

It’s like going on a roller

coaster. … As this being

my first solo singing role,

I’m deathly worried that

I’m going to mess up one

or two lines.”

“I’m a little bit nervous

because this is also my first

singing and acting role,”

Ava said. “So, I don’t want

to mess up but, if I do, then

I’ll just have to keep going.”

The stage veterans had

some words of advice for

anyone thinking of taking

up acting.

“Before you audition

make sure to just take a

breath, and if you mess up

on something, it’s not the

end of the world,” Ava said.

“You always just get back

up and keep going.”

“If you’re thinking about

it, just do it,” Brian said.

“Try it out. See if you like it

or not. Finish the show, and

if you like it, come back. If

you don’t, you don’t have

to continue it.”

“And, just let your light

shine,” Ava added.

danny fox

From Page 17

In 2009, when he was

18, he and his dad went

to Hibbing, Minnesota

where Bob Dylan grew up.

He entered a contest the

area holds around Dylan’s

birthday and he ended up

winning the contest.

“I got to play on Bob

Dylan’s high school stage

where he played his talent

shows,” Fox said. “That

was enlightening.

“I was terrified out of

my boots. It was brilliant

though and affirmed that

‘this is what you should be

doing.’ It was eerie, it was

poetic and it was charging.”

Fox also has his albums

for sale as well.

The 550-mile walk

In 2016, Fox backpacked

550 miles starting in

France and finishing

in Spain. It took him a

month and a half and had

just a backpack. The trail

he walked is called the

Camino De Santiago.

“It’s a 2,000-year-old

trail and it’s a pilgrimage,”

Fox said. “People do it for

spiritual reasons, people

do it for reasons as mundane

as losing weight. I

did it because I was trying

to better myself. Believer

or not, the last cathedral

there are the bones of St.

James. There are no words

for that.”

For Fox, it was for personal

reasons and he gained

a new-found respect for

himself because of it, he

said because he did not

think he would do it, let

alone finish the trail. People

can start at different spots

in the trail and it is available

to walk whenever.

“It was super gratifying

and super humbling,” Fox

said.

He learned about the

trail from the movie “The

Way.”

“I said it would be cool

to do someday,” he said.

“It felt like a calling. Fiveish

years later. I saved up

enough to do it and took a

leap of faith.”

He’s done music and

he’s done a 550-mile walk,

but his passion for his art

is undeniable. Right now it

is just a hobby for him, but

he hopes to take it somewhere

someday.

“I love doing it. If you

want a project, talk to me.

I’m open to anything,”

he said. “.And if you

just want one of a loved

one or a pet, that is fine too.

I love it. I’d like it to make

it my job-job, but it’s just a

side thing right now.”

The Dish

Gina’s Teardrop Cafe big on serving community

Sean Hastings, Editor

“It’s a big turnout. And their

stories are unreal. It has turned

into a great event that we do.”

Gina Buck owner of Gina’s Teardrop Cafe, on

free veterans breakfasts held certain Mondays

Veterans eat for free

from 6:30-8 a.m. on the

last Monday of every

month at Gina’s Teardrop

Cafe in New Lenox. It has

been that way for approximately

two years.

“When my father

passed and we were at

the cemetery, everybody

there volunteers, and it

just gave me the inspiration

that we need to do

something,” owner Gina

Buck said. “It’s a big turnout.

And their stories are

unreal. It has turned into

a great event that we do.”

Gina said it is nice to

see new faces show up

for the veterans breakfast

who then continue to

come back and eventually

become regulars.

The cafe also welcomes

in an art class from Martino

Junior High School

in New Lenox to paint the

front windows three times

a year to coincide with

the different seasons and

holidays. It also does food

drives during Thanksgiving

and toy drives during

the Christmas season.

“Anytime we can chip

in, we donate,” Buck said.

“We really do try to give

back. Whenever we can

help somebody, we definitely

try to.”

Buck admitted that

because of the location

of the cafe — on the far

west side of town — some

people may not know it

is there, because they do

not have to drive that way.

But she loves where it is

located

And the cafe will celebrate

six years in November.

When it first opened,

only the main dining area

existed, but a year-and-ahalf

into things, it outgrew

that space.

Luckily, the space next

door was occupied by

Kevin Molloy Insurance,

which moved to the other

end of the mall allowing

Teardrop’s expansion.

Gina’s Teardrop Cafe

serves both breakfast and

lunch. It also caters food

for different events, a

service that has become

more popular as of late.

Teardrop may even host a

wedding later in the summer.

On the regular menu,

the breakfast tacos ($8)

are popular, as are the

biscuits and gravy ($7

full order, $5 half, can be

topped with two eggs any

style for $1).

The menu also has some

“hidden gems” in their

specials section. Special

#3 — which is one egg

any style, a cup of fruit,

a side of avocado and a

piece of toast ($8) — has

become a popular item, as

well.

“When we did the menu

revision four months ago

to update it, that is one

that gets a lot of orders,”

said Gina’s husband and

co-owner, Ken. “We try to

stay current.”

Gina said if they think

of something good, they

will put it up as a special,

instead of regularly updating

the menu.

The Teardrop Skillet ($14) at Gina’s Teardrop Cafe can be served with toast or

pancakes. It is the Meat Lovers Skillet with the addition of homemade country gravy

and biscuits. Photos by Sean Hastings/22nd Century Media

Special #3 ($8) at Gina’s Teardrop Cafe in New Lenox is one egg any style, a cup of

fruit, a side of avocado and a piece of toast.

“We try to stay with the

trends,” she said. “Everybody’s

eating avocado.”

The Teardrop Skillet

($14) has also become

a top-seller for the cafe,

which is the Meat Lover

Skillet (sausage, bacon,

ham, onions, green peppers,

cheddar and mozzarella

cheese) topping with

homemade country gravy

and biscuits.

The cafe also sells alcohol

now, with drinks like

Bloody Mary’s and mimosas

on offer.

“It’s something new for

us that has really taken

off,” Gina said. “It’s another

thing that helps keep

us current, because people

are doing that.”

As far as what the future

holds for Gina’s Teardrop

Cafe, Ken wants to focus

on each years as it comes,

while continuing to grow

the veterans breakfast,

community work and the

catering side of the business.

“For the military breakfast,

we’ve had customers

come in and see that and

want to contribute,” Ken

said. “We had [a veteran]

from Pennsylvania as a

traveler come, give us a

card and said he’d like to

help offset the cost we incur

from the breakfast. We

sent him a card back and

a picture of what we provide

here.”

Other customers, especially

around the holidays,

have shown interest in

helping out with the veteran’s

breakfast, too, Ken

said.

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Davis Billows

Davis Billows is a rising junior

golfer at Providence.

When did you start playing

golf?

I’ve been playing golf forever.

My dad played it, so I’ve always

been around it. Around sixth

grade, I really started to take golf

more seriously.

You recently won the

Illinois Junior Golf

Association tournament

at Old Oak Golf Course

and went to sudden death

strokes. Explain that

experience?

It was cool because it happened

close to home. You’re

competing against a lot of people

you know. It’s a good reward to

know that all of your hard work

has paid off. I had played in one

other playoff before. I remember

being super nervous the first

time I had to do that. This time

around, I knew what to expect

and it didn’t really bother me.

Do you plan on playing golf

at the collegiate level?

That’s definitely the goal that I

am working toward. It would be

amazing to see that come true,

knowing that all of the work I

have put in was worth it. It would

be awesome to get a scholarship

and see where the game can take

me. I’d love to go pro, but I also

know that getting an education is

what’s most important.

Explain something difficult

about golf that the average

person may not realize?

If you’ve never played golf at

the competitive level, it’s definitely

a mental game. You have

to be mentally fortified to get

through all 18 holes. It’s easy to

have a bad hole and have that affect

you throughout the course.

You have to be able to move on

from that shot. If you don’t, it

can cost you a lot of strokes and

you fall behind.

Who is your favorite

golfer?

It’s between Rickie Fowler

and Tiger Woods. They’re both

equal in my favorite golfer rankings.

Both of my parents are

Tiger fans, just the success and

heartbreak he’s had is remarkable.

It’s amazing the amount of

people who show up to watch

Tiger. He creates his own atmosphere

that no other golfer can

create.

What do you enjoy doing in

your free time?

Hanging out with my friends

or working out. Oddly enough,

I also enjoy golfing with my

friends. It’s different than competing

in a tournament, so I enjoy

that.

Any hidden talents or

anything else you’re good

at?

I do play a lot of other sports.

I played on the school basketball

team this year. It’s not so much a

hidden talent, but I just like staying

active.

If you could play any

course, which would you

pick?

Playing Augusta would be

a dream scenario. My parents

have gone down there to watch

the Masters and say it’s really

beautiful. Hopefully one day I’ll

Photo submitted

get that opportunity to play.

What has been your

favorite memory from golf

so far?

The first time that I broke 80

in a tournament. Everything fell

into place and that was a really

cool experience. That memory

will stick for a while.

In 2018 you won the IJGA

Sportsmanship award.

Explain what that is?

It’s an award they give out

to athletes who do good work

around the community. That

year, I had raised money for the

Nicklaus Children’s Health Care

Foundation. On the course, I

always try to have good sportsmanship,

too. I go out there and

try to act professional, nothing

too crazy. One of the coolest

things I’ve ever done, because

of winning the award, was meet

Jack Nicklaus. I got to go to his

house. I’ve never been so nervous.

We were having normal

conversation, but I was screaming

inside the whole time. It was

an unforgettable experience.

Baseball

Providence learns in summer

despite tough playoff ending

RANDY WHALEN, Freelance Reporter

Providence rising junior shortstop

Ryan O’Neil sees the benefits

of playing summer baseball

with his high school team.

“It’s the program bond,”

O’Neil said. “You get to know

your teammates and get to play

with everyone.”

O’Neil and the Celtics certainly

feel they got something out

of their summer practices and

games, even though their summer

playoff run ended early.

The Celtics simply ran out of

pitching and decided to not play

their third game in one day as part

of the Lockport Summer League

Regional on Tuesday, June 25 at

Flink Field in Lockport.

Under a new format, the regional

tournament was double

elimination.

Due to rainouts, the scheduled

three-day tournament was now

down to two days. Providence

defeated Minooka to start the

tournament before losing a wild

game to the host Porters.

With both the Celtics and

Minooka nearly out of pitching

and the prospect that either

team would have had to win two

games over Lockport the next

day to advance, both Providence

coach Mark Smith and Minooka

coach Jeff Petrovic decided they

didn’t have enough pitching to

play. So since the Porters won

both games, they were declared

the regional winner.

“It was a good idea but for us,

it just didn’t work,” Smith said

of the summer regional format.

“It’s not that the kids don’t want

to play, they want to play. It’s just

that many of them pitch on the

weekend for their travel teams. I

had 10 seniors that were at showcases.

That’s where they get the

exposure. I’m not going to stop

them from that.

”I like the team bonding, the

team camaraderie of high school

summer baseball. I was proud of

our guy’s efforts. We just didn’t

have the pitching.”

The opening games on Tuesday

were played at noon at different

sites. Host Lockport held

on to edge Romeoville 8-7 and

the host Celtics beat Minooka

11-7.

The rest of the games were

scheduled to be played at Lockport,

with the Porters and Providence

squaring off at 3 p.m.

There were so many runs scored,

and the scoreboard wasn’t in

operation, that each team had a

different final score. The Celtics

had it 19-15 and Lockport had it

18-14. But either way, the Porters

won by four and by virtue of

winning two games on Tuesday,

advanced to the title game round,

Aidan Goggins, a rising senior

right-handed pitcher and

first baseman from New Lenox,

agreed with O’Neil’s assessment

that Providence grew over the

summer.

“It’s more for development,”

Goggins said. “It’s a good time

for development and it’s not

about wins and losses. It [losing

to Lockport] was a little disappointing

but everyone is getting

better.”

Smith also credited rising juniors

Cain Headrick, who caught

both games against Minooka and

Lockport, Kyle Hussey, Sebastian

Biggs, and Justin Janowski

among others, as playing well in

the regional.

“One thing it is about is becoming

a great defensive team in

the summer,” Smith said. “We try

to put guys in the best position

and I thought that’s what we did.

“I’m really excited about next

season. We lose a couple of top

pitchers but also have a lot back.

We lost eight games this spring

in the opponent’s last at-bat but

then won 12-of-14 at the end and

finished 23-16. We have a great

group of seniors.”

Basketball

LW Central still young, but

experienced and dangerous

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Rising junior guard Nick Tingley

is very familiar with most

of his teammates on the Lincoln-

Way Central basketball team. He

expects the long-term relationships

on the court to benefit the

Knights as a whole next season.

“It’ll help a lot,” he said.

“We’ve been playing together

since we were a young age. We

know each other’s games and

what we need to work on to push

each other to get better.”

The summer league was just

another opportunity for the

Knights to get closer.

“If we work as a team during

the season, we’ll be better,” rising

junior forward James Ogrodnik

said. “The more chemistry

we have, the better we’ll be. The

summer helps with that a lot.”

Central coach Bob Curran

gave a lot of minutes to sophomores

last season, his team finishing

15-16. The Knights will

still be young next year, with

only two seniors, but will be centered

on their juniors.

The team’s top three scorers,

all rising junior guards, are expected

to return: Sean Curran

- Bob’s son - Tingley and Mike

Maloney.

Maloney’s twin, Matt, also

was a regular contributor last

season along with Ogrodnik and

rising junior Ryan Kraft.

Many of the Knights’ top

players are multi-sport athletes.

Kraft is already committed to

play baseball at Indiana and the

Maloneys are also standouts on

the diamond. Sean Curran is the

defending state runner-up in golf

and will continue his career in

that sport at Clemson.

It all makes for a busy summer

for some of the team’s standouts.

When they’re away playing

other sports, it gives other guys a

chance to step up on the basketball

court.

All four were gone for the

Ray Milnas Summer Shootout

at Stagg in June, but the Knights

still looked sharp with Tingley

and Ogrodnik leading the way.

“We have young guys coming

up to varsity stepping up, showing

up for the team,” Ogrodnik

said. “That’s always a good

time.”

The shootout games at Stagg

were sped up, with two 20-minute

halves with a running clock.

Still, the Knights managed to

break the 80-point mark in an

84-32 rout of Plano.

“We moved the ball around,

got open shots, guys were cutting

really good,” Tingley said.

“When we get hot and push the

ball, we can score with anyone,

we feel. We need to get better on

the defensive end to stop teams.”

Bob Curran echoed those sentiments,

and said his team needs

to get bigger to help with defense

and rebounding.

“We feel like we can put five

guys on the court who can really

score,” he said. “Our big thing is

we have to be committed to the

weight room. These kids that are

going to be juniors need to get

a lot stronger. Most of the kids

know how to play, we’re skilled.

It’s just improving those bodies.”

Ogrodnik said his team is determined

to put in the work needed

to get better.

“We’re looking forward to

making some noise this year,” he

said. “It will be fun.”

Maloney

juniors

LW West alum Mikalauski perseveres through ACL injuries

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

LW West graduate Madison Miklauski hopes to be back on the field with Wisconsin-Whitewater this fall

after suffering her second torn ACL last August. Photo submitted

When Madison Mikalauski

tore the ACL in her left knee last

August, shortly before her sophomore

soccer season at Wisconsin-Whitewater

was set to begin,

it was déjà vu for the Lincoln-

Way West graduate.

She tore the ACL in her right

knee when she was a freshman

at West.

“Having gone through this

once before, it was good and bad

at the same time,” Mikalauski

said. “I knew what I was going to

have to do at certain time frames

because I’d done it before, so

that was good, but the bad part

was right when I was going into

the surgery because I knew how

much pain I was going to be in

and how hard it was going to

be.”

A second major injury in a

five-year span prompted some

questions about Mikalauski’s

athletic future.

“When I got hurt, everyone

was asking me, ‘Are you still going

to play? You only have two

years left, are you going to come

back?’

“I definitely had doubts right

after surgery, the hardest time

and most painful time. I was

home, laying on the couch, I was

thinking there was no way I’ll

be able to even run fast enough,

let alone play at that level again

needed to play collegiate soccer.”

The doubts didn’t linger long,

however. Mikalauski quickly realized

she was not ready to be

done with soccer.

“I got back on campus, around

my teammates, they were constantly

asking me how I was

doing,” she said. “There were

points where I was supposed to

be able to bend my knee to a certain

degree and they’d always

ask me, ‘Did you get there yet?’

“They really pushed me, and I

realized I couldn’t just be a normal

student and sit on the sideline.

I have to be an athlete.”

After surgery last September,

Mikalauski began the lengthy rehab

process.

“I was working with my physical

trainer, my physical therapist

and my speed and strength

coach five days a week,” she

said. “It’s so hard to watch all

your friends be excited to score

and to see everyone play and

just seeing them walk and run at

practice was frustrating because

I just wanted to be able to move

around like normal. I couldn’t

walk for two months.”

Mikalauski chose to stay close

to the team, though. She became

a manager and travelled with the

team throughout last season.

“I was always on the bench

cheering them on,” she said. “It

was really important for me to

still be involved.

“It was so beneficial to me

mentally, physically and everything

to stay in that soccer mindset

and be around my teammates.

They kept pushing me to do my

best with my training and therapy

to get back out there.”

Mikalauski is an excellent student

who was named to the Wisconsin

Intercollegiate Athletic

Conference Scholastic Honor

Roll. She’s a social work major

and works with special needs

students.

She was a major part of Lincoln-Way

West’s first sectional

champion team her senior year

in 2017. As a freshman at Whitewater

that fall, she played in 14

games and had an assist.

“Freshman year I was behind

so many underclassmen, didn’t

get as much playing time as I

wanted, but I learned so much,”

she said. “Now, watching from

the sidelines for a whole year,

you get a totally different perspective

and learn so much that

way.

“I feel like I’m definitely more

ready to play now.”

And she will be able to play.

Mikalauski was cleared by her

doctors to return to soccer June

24.

She plans to take it slowly and

work her way back up to game

speed by the time the season

starts in August.

The physical part may not be

the toughest aspect of her comeback,

however.

“You have to do mental therapy,

too,” she said. “My teammates

and parents have helped

me so much with that mental

standpoint and with me believing

that I can play again and if I

get hurt again, I get hurt again.

I just want to be able to try

again.”

That means blocking out any

doubts or fears that may creep

into her mind when she gets back

in game action.

“Both times I got hurt, I got

hit from behind where I couldn’t

see what was coming,” she said.

“There’s that fear of that happening

again, but I have to get past

that.

“I want to end soccer on my

terms, not have this be a careerending

injury. I think I’ll be nervous

at the start, but I just have

to keep going.”

Going Places

LW West’s Taheny stays close to home to

continue softball career at St. Francis

RANDY WHALEN

Freelance Reporter

Home is where the heart

is.

That old saying seems

to apply to recent Lincoln-

Way West graduate Sarah

Taheny. At first, she wanted

to continue her softball

career someplace further

away. Then it was somewhere

closer to home. So

she settled for a mixture of

both.

Following the school

year, Taheny moved to

near Indianapolis with her

parents. But next month

she will be right back next

to New Lenox as she will

continue her softball career

at the University of St.

Francis in Joliet.

“I decided that I wanted

to go to college in Illinois,”

Taheny said. “My middle

brother, Jacob, went to the

University of St. Francis

and graduated a few years

ago. I used to go visit him

when he was there. Plus

my older brother, C.J.

lives in Joliet. It’s only 15

minutes away [from New

Lenox].

“I really like the atmosphere

there. It’s really

laid back and there’s a lot

of stuff around there. I like

the food, the culture, and I

know the Joliet area well.”

But that’s only a part

of why Taheny chose St.

Francis.

“I’m just so excited to

“I want to end soccer on my terms, not have this be a

career-ending injury. I think I’ll be nervous at the start,

but I just have to keep going.”

Madison Mikalauski – LW West alum and Wisconsin-Whitewater

soccer player, on returning from her second torn ACL

continue to play softball

in college,” she said. “I’m

so blessed to have the opportunity.

They have a

great program and coaching

there. Plus, I’m excited

about the teaching

program there. I want to be

a secondary math teacher.

I’ve had a lot of really

great teachers. So I want

to put everything together

and be one.”

A high honor roll student

at West, Taheny made

her mark on the field this

past softball season and

made 22nd Century Media’s

Team 22 second team

as a designated player. She

batted .362 with a .388

on-base percentage and a

.628 slugging percentage.

She slugged seven doubles

and six home runs, had 30

RBI and scored 20 runs

in making the SouthWest

Suburban Red Division

All-Conference team.

As a two-year varsity

player, she also was a

catcher, which she plans

to play in college, But she

was primarily a designated

player and obviously had

success at that.

“Sarah went from being

a role player to a focal

part of our offense in

her senior season,” West

softball coach Heather

Novak said. “It shows her

hard work and determination.

Conference player. We are

excited to see what she

accomplishes in her collegiate

career. St. Francis

isn’t only getting a hard

worker but they are also

getting a great teammate.”

Taheny started her softball

career early.

“My parents made me

play a sport,” Taheny said

of her dad, Craig, and

mom, Stacy. “I actually

started in hockey at age 3.

My brother, C.J. played it

too. But I quit that by age

6. I also did cheerleading

for one year at age 5, but

that was a big mistake as I

did not enjoy it. I also started

playing softball when I

was 5 but that stuck.

“I’ve been a catcher

since I was 12, so for the

past six years, but I will

play anywhere they need

me. I play mostly outfield

for my travel team, the

Windy City Ice.”

What is it about softball

that made it the sport for

her?

“Softball is a game of

inches and seconds,” Taheny

said. “It just keeps

getting faster and faster

every year. I’m really a

determined person and it

kept me in the mindset to

get better. It’s a lot more

work for me than any of

the other sports that I’ve

played, And what can I

say? I’m a workaholic.”

That work ethic was certainly

noticed by St. Francis

coach, Amanda Jensen,

who guided the Fighting

Saints to a 29-11 record

this past spring.

“I am very excited to

welcome Sarah into our

program as a Fighting

Saint,” Jensen said in a

press release. “Sarah is

an outstanding talent both

on the ballfield and in the

classroom, and someone

who makes everyone

around her immediately

better. Offensively, she’s

a gap threat that puts together

consistent at-bats

and has the knack for coming

through in clutch situations.

And defensively,

she is a wall behind the

plate. She has a very high

softball IQ and knows how

to implement that information

very effectively

into ball games. Sarah is a

perfect fit for our team and

university, and I cannot

wait for her to be on campus

this fall.”

Taheny believes her

time at West has prepared

her for the college level.

“The practices, the discipline,

the standard that

we’re held to,” Taheny

said. “We had to be there

every day, always do our

best, and hold each other

accountable. I know that’s

how it’s going to be in college

where you have to put

in the work, on and off the

field.”
