TPPD’s Shervino named

Illinois’ top DARE instructor

Orland Township’s

Will O’Brien

Freelance Reporter

Retired Tinley Park Sgt. Sam Shervino

(left) stands next to his nephew Bob

Shervino (center), who was awarded

Illinois DARE Officer of the Year, and

Robert’s brother, Officer Steve Shervino

(right) from the Plainfield Police

Department. Photo submitted

Tinley Park police officer Bob Shervino

has always had two passions: police work

and teaching.

He’s combined the interests to great

effect as a long-time DARE program instructor.

So much so, that in June, he was

selected among more than 100 candidates

as the Illinois DARE Officer of the Year.

“I was totally surprised,” said Shervino,

a member of the Tinley department since

2000 and DARE instructor since 2002. “I

didn’t even know I’d been nominated.”

Shervino, who grew up admiring an uncle

who was a sergeant in the Tinley Park

Police 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 Officer’s Conference in Peoria,

an event he’s been attending for years to

stay on top of the latest and greatest in the

DARE program toolkit.

“It was a great day,” he said.

For Shervino, a Tinley native and father

of three, being an impactful instructor has

come down to a personable approach and

true interest in making a difference in the

lives of the more than 5,500 children he’s

taught.

“Patrol work is more reactive, and

DARE is more proactive,” Shervino said.

“I really do enjoy that. The kids are really

smart, and they’re pretty truthful and honest.

I teach them, but they also teach me.”

The Tinley Park Police Department’s

DARE program reaches nearly 1,000 students

in a calendar year, Shervino said.

When in session, he’s working six-day

work weeks, spending a few on patrol

and few in schools, where he works with

classes over a period of 10 to 15 weeks.

It is a lot of work, sure. But Shervino

finds it energizing.

“I think it’s made me a better person,

and I hope it’s made me a better parent,”

he said.

Shervino has taught DARE to all of his

children and two of his brother’s children.

His brother is an officer with the Plainfield

Police Department.

DARE’s curriculum has shifted considerably

in the time he’s been involved,

going from a drug-focused, just-say-no

approach in the early days to a broader

philosophy based on smart decision-making.

“It’s definitely changed over the years,”

he said.

The modernized focus and Shervino’s

pride in making his lessons relevant to the

children — whether through pop music

or the latest dance move — clearly work,

according to the teachers who nominated

him.

“His dedication to the program and

passion for its mission and purpose was

incredibly obvious and genuine from

the start,” Katrina Kloess, a fifth-grade

teacher at Trinity Lutheran School wrote

in a nomination letter. “As an educator, I

appreciate and respect Officer Shervino’s

natural balance between being professional

and yet appropriately personal with

the students.”

Jo Ann Greene, principal at Helen

Keller School, described Shervino’s attentiveness

in helping the children prepare

for their DARE graduation ceremony,

which features skits and slideshow set

to music.

“I have watched Officer Shervino sit in

the conference room for numerous hours

making sure every child has their picture

displayed and that the music is current and

Village Board

Officials make changes to

operations of short-term rentals

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

The Village of Tinley

Park Board of Trustees

made several changes

July 2 to how it will allow

short-term rentals to operate

within the Village.

The first change — approved

by a 6-0 vote —

requires a 500-foot minimum

distance between

short-term rentals located

in residential districts.

“In response to nuisance

and safety complaints

regarding existing shortterm

rentals, staff drafted

text amendments to the

zoning ordinance to regulate

their use as an accessory

use to owner-occupied

residential dwelling

units,” Trustee Michael

Mueller said while introducing

the agenda item.

Later, the board members

also voted 6-0 to pass

another series of amendments

to short-term rentals,

such as: requiring

short term rentals to be

licensed with the Village

on an annual basis, with a

ROUND IT UP

A brief recap of action and discussion from the July 2

meeting of the Tinley Park Village Board

•In a 6-0 vote, the trustees approved renewing

an agreement with GovTemps to extend Paula

Wallrich’s service as the Village’s planning

manager from Sept. 1, 2019, through Aug. 31,

2020, at a rate of $77.49 per hour.

•The trustees also unanimously voted to appoint

Jessie Green to the position of senior custodian

with the Village.

• As part of the consent agenda, the trustees voted

6-0 to approve payment of the Village’s bills — from

June 21-28 — in the amount of $641,564.

corresponding annual fee

of $50; having staff conduct

an on-site inspection

prior to the issuance of the

license; and not allowing

a short-term rental to operate

if the applicant has

any outstanding debt to the

Village.

Appointment of new

commission chairman

After the trustees voted

6-0 earlier in the meeting

to approve various

appointments to the Marketing

& Branding, Plan,

Economic Commercial,

and Sister Cities commissions,

George Rohde — a

member of the Sister Cities

Commission — spoke

during public comment to

share concerns about the

appointment of Patrick

Rea as new chairman of

the commission.

Rea replaces Lucas

Hawley as chairman.

Rohde shared an email

from some residents of

fun for the children,” she

wrote. “The children will

forever remember Officer

Shervino for his contributions

to their community.”

Turns out, many DARE

graduates do remember

Shervino years later. He’s

regularly stopped while

out and about by 20-somethings

who’ve graduated

from college and started

careers.

“It makes me happy

they still remember me,”

he said. “They’re proud to

share who they’ve become

and, for me, that’s just fantastic.

It really does make

me feel like I’m making a

difference in the schools.”

Kloess said Shervino is

a good ambassador for police

in an era of heightened

public scrutiny, something

her students pick up on.

“Most of these kids

have never spoken to a police

office before me,” he

said. “Getting officers in

schools, face to face, not

just when something bad

happens — that’s always

going to be a positive

thing.”

In DARE, Shervino has

found his niche, said Matthew

Walsh, Tinley Park’s

chief of police.

“Officer Shervino is

one of the department’s

leaders in our ongoing efforts

to have more positive

community engagement,”

Walsh said. “It’s a

tremendous award for him

to receive, especially since

he was recognized by his

peers.”

In addition to DARE,

Shervino is a member of

the Tinley department’s

teams for active shooter

education, elderly service

and crisis intervention.

DARE, however, maintains

a special place in his

heart.

“It’s definitely been one

of the highlights of my career,”

he said.

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.

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.

“[Village officials] are

going to have to open their

mouths,” Biegel said about

the lack of public condemnation

of such acts.

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.”

Seven Tinley

businesses robbed

evening of July 4

Jacquelyn Schlabach

Editor

Seven businesses in Tinley

Park were robbed starting

at approximately 11:30

p.m. Thursday, July 4, according

to Sgt. Patrick St.

John with the Tinley Park

Police Department.

Five of the businesses

hit were in a strip mall in

the 7900 block of 171st

Street and included Plush

Horse, Jimmy John’s,

Nancy’s Pizza and Pine

Cleaners. The other two

businesses were located

in the area of 183rd Street

and Harlem Avenue.

“We had literally just

cleared out from the fireworks

show because that

strip mall on 171st Street

is jam-packed during the

fireworks show," St. John

said. "So I probably had the

fireworks show cleared out

around 10:30 p.m. so it was

within the hour after that.".

St. John said that nearby

Lockport businesses also

were hit. The police said

From July 5

that there are two male

suspects in their late teens

to early 20s who are believed

to be involved.

“They look for the businesses

that they think have

cash on hand,” St. John

said. “All instances they

went straight for the cash

registers and they were literally

in and out.”

He added that the suspects

broke out the windows

of the doors, grabbed

money from the registers

and left. It is unknown at

this time how much money

was stolen from each business.

St. John also said the

suspects are believed to

have been driving a vehicle

that was reported stolen in

a nearby jurisdiction.

It is unknown if the suspects

are armed, but St.

John said that it is “always

safe to assume they are.”

“The public should always

be concerned," he

said. "Our motto is [if you]

see something, say something."

From Page 5

“They feel that it is very

alarming,” Rohde said of

the Village Board’s decision

to replace Hawley as

commissioner.

Rohde, however, said

the concerns were not

about Rea being named

commissioner — but rather

the process by which the

decision was made.

“I’m not saying in any

way that I think the assignment

of Pat Rea is

a bad decision by any

means, but I think before

any decision is formally

made we need to consider

the individuals involved

… in hopes that we can

make a better understanding

of how we work together

on the commission,”

Rohde said.

After Rohde’s comments,

Trustee Michael

Glotz said it was his recommendation

to Mayor Jacob

Vandenberg to appoint

Rea as the new commissioner

of the Sister Cities

Commission.

“That man probably

knows more about the Sister

Cities and Tinley Park

than anyone in this town,”

Glotz said. “I couldn’t

have asked the mayor to

put a better person — more

qualified, more knowledge

and done more for this

town — than Mr. Rea.”

Glotz, however, did ask

Rohde to share the email

with him.

Letters to the Editor

Reopen Mental Health

Center instead of build

proposed racino

Instead of more gambling

machines, card dealers

and gaming of horses

which encourages people’s

addictions to winning and

money, the mental health

center needs to be cleaned

up by the state of Illinois,to

which it belongs, and reopened

again as a mental

health center once more.

Too many people enter

emergency rooms at hospitals

and wait several hours

or days to be placed in a

mental health facility. It is

cruel and unjust, as most

are not responsible for

their mental health issues.

The fact that they wait so

long for help only exasperates

their problems and

causes undue desperations

of anxiety and insecurity.

The statistics prove that

jails have a vast number

of its inmates with

mental health problems.

They cannot find a place

to help them so they haplessly

wind up doing

things against the law and

therefore are incarcerated.

While in jail their

problems are magnified

because of fear of gangs,

drugs, loneliness and an

uncertain future. Further,

if they cannot make bond

for a hearing of minor infractions,

they wind up in

jail just like someone who

murdered,raped or stole

goods. It is an unjust system

that treats all non bond

payers just like hardened

criminals.

Jail is not therapy nor a

hospital, it is hell! Illinois

closed this facility because

they were too cheap to upkeep

it and the majority of

the powers that be do not

care about these unfortunate

people who cannot advocate

for themselves due

to their condition. These

people need the CARE of

a doctor, nurses, therapy

and perhaps a tranquilizing

drug to help them see the

light for their future.

We need to help people

who need it most. We do

not need another avenue

to game and gamble under

the excuse to increase

tax revenue. It seems like

no one knows where this

money truly goes anyway!

tesy 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 in

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.

McCarthy recalled what

stood out to him the most

from the one-day trip to

Washington, D.C.

“The people,” he said.

“The volunteers and how

hard they worked and

how everything was so

organized. The whole trip

was so much bigger than

what I had expected. The

acknowledgement of the

people, the acceptance of

the people and the affection

of the people was really

something wonderful

to behold.

“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.”

the Tinley Junction | July 11, 2019 | 17

Vogt Visual Arts Center to display tribute, charity show

Amanda Del Buono

Freelance Reporter

When longtime Frankfort

resident and known

local artist Margi Hafer

lost her older sister, Donna

Johnston, at 76 years old in

February 2017, she knew

that she had to do something

to pay tribute. Hafer

and Johnston were close,

they traveled together and

most importantly, they

painted together.

“Maybe I dreamt about

it, or maybe my sister was

talking to me somehow,

but this is what we came

up with, her and I,” Hafer

said. “And I know she

would have wanted something

to happen with her

artwork.”

When Johnston passed

away from melanoma,

she left nearly 200 paintings

unfinished, whether

because of the loss of her

eyesight or interest in a

new project, Hafer said.

The Johnston family, who

resides in Huntly, Illinois,

were overwhelmed with

the number of paintings

and collection of art supplies

she left behind.

After painting with

Johnston for more than 20

years, Hafer knew that she

was the one who should

take on the responsibility

of finding something positive

to do with her sister’s

artwork.

“She couldn’t drive anymore,

she could hardly

write her name, but she

still wanted to try to paint,

and so she didn’t finish a

lot of things that she had

started, but some of those

might have been things

she didn’t finish because

she had went on to something

else,” Hafer said.

“I didn’t know what was

what, so I said all of these

are unfinished. The family

didn’t know what to do

with them, so I just said

‘OK I’ll take them and do

something,’ and so that’s

what I did.”

Hafer began finishing

some of her sister’s paintings

and realized it was

too big a project for one

person. That’s when she

decided to enlist other

artists to help her finish

many of the paintings and

do something special with

them. She then arranged

for 57 artists to finish

Johnston’s paintings for a

book, which she published

through Blurb.com in January.

“Even people I didn’t

know that other people

talk to, when they heard

about it, they wanted to

be part of it, that was kind

of heartwarming,” Hafer

said.

The book, “The Sisters

Project,” features before

and after pictures of many

of the paintings, as well

as comments from the artists

about Johnston and/

or working on Johnston’s

artwork.

Despite their enthusiasm

to participate in the

project, many of the artists

were challenged by

the task at hand. Hafer said

many came to her questioning

how they should

complete the paintings.

“I said you have to make

it your own and do your

own thing with it,” she

said. “There are a couple

that made them into books;

there’s one that made a

stained glass mosaic and

embedded some of the artwork

into it; some people

painted oil paint over it;

some people painted pastel

over it.”

Among them, Julie

Dekker, gallery director at

Margi Hafer (left) put together a project to be on display at the Vogt Visual Arts Center through July 27 in Tinley

Park in memory of her sister Donna Johnston (right) who died in 2017. Photos submitted

the Vogt Visual Arts Center

and one of the artists

who participated in the

project, said that it was a

daunting task despite her

desire to be a part of the

project.

“Painting on another

person’s painting is, I

found, a very daunting

task,” she said. “Most artists

don’t want you touching

their work, and when

you’re doing a painting

the last thing you want

is somebody else going

on there and painting on

your work. So, it’s a little

bit unusual just to begin

with. So, I had such an apprehension

about painting

on someone else’s work,

I just didn’t want to ruin

her piece or change the direction

that she was going

with it. I ended up doing it,

but I had a hard time with

it.”

Core to the entire project

was doing good. In

line with this goal, the

proceeds from the book

sales are used to donate

books to various areas

where people might need

a touch of inspiration.

Hafer has donated copies

to such places as various

Crisis Support Centers

and hospice centers. She

hopes that the artwork and

the words from the artists

will be a point of inspiration

for them, which was

something her sister did

as a social worker.

Now that the book

has published, Hafer has

teamed up with the Tinley

Park-Park District’s Vogt

Visual Arts Center to display

and sell the work to

benefit charity.

“I tried to think of what

Donna would have wanted,

and she was such a

spiritual person and such

a giving person, I would

think that she would want

her work to do something

good for others, so this is

where I went with it,” Hafer

said.

The show at the Vogt

Visual Arts Center will

feature more work than

what was published in the

book, Hafer said, noting

that nearly 180 pieces will

be displayed in the charity

show.

“There were 57 that

were in the book I created,

but there’s since been a

couple more that didn’t get

in the book because they

were too late to get in the

book and then there’s over

40 of my sister’s finished

pieces that she herself

finished before she died,”

Hafer said.

Johnston’s artwork is

a vast collection of landscapes,

flowers and other

light, happy scenes, Hafer

said.

“She had a very fanciful,

loose way of painting,”

she said.

Dekker added: “They’re

very vibrant, they’re all

nature, they’re flowers and

landscapes. Very, very vibrant

colors, and yet, they

can be soft in the same

way. Some really wonderful

use of colors, and a lot

of floral pieces. It’s very

enjoyable to look at all

of them. [She had] a very

nice, natural style. And

then, what people did with

them, it just makes it very

interesting.”

Dekker was touched to

be given the opportunity to

participate and dedicated

to helping bring the project

to fruition by not only finishing

two paintings, but

also providing the space

for the show.

“[Margi] came to me

first and said, ‘Well I have

this idea, and I want you

to be one of the artists and

I was so touched that she

would even think that,”

Dekker said. “I thought

what a great way to get

[Johnston’s] work out

there and then it won’t all

go to waste and that way

everyone can help and the

charities can help so many

people. We can reach so

many people this way,

and I was like I’ll make it

happen, I don’t care how.

This was great, I was able

to make the gallery available

for the month of July

and I’m just really excited

about it because it’s so

good on so many levels.”

Dekker added that because

of the variety of

artists participating in the

project, each specializing

in their own style, the “Sisters”

show will be quite

unique.

“It’s really interesting.

People took the work and

did something else with it

and really used their imagination

and I was really

impressed by that,” she

said. “Everything that’s

come in has just been really

nicely done.”

The proceeds from the

artwork sold at the event,

which is priced between

$50 and $700, will go

directly to the charity of

the buyer’s choice, Hafer

said. In fact, the artists

who participated donated

the finished pieces, along

with any added accoutrements,

like framing or

matting.

“We won’t see any of

the money,” Hafer added.

Among the many charities

that will benefit are

PAWS of Tinley Park, the

North Shore Medical Center,

Mokena’s JourneyCare

Foundation, the Lincoln-

Way Area Chorale, Union

Street Artists Guild, Ann

& Robert H. Lurie Children’s

Hospital of Chicago

and the Frankfort Art Association.

Several of these charities

were selected for the

roles they played in Johnston’s

care prior to her

passing, but others were

chosen for their closeness

to Hafer.

When the show closes,

the items that are unsold

will be donated to charities

for fundraising efforts, Hafer

added.

“All of it will go to a

good cause somehow,” she

said.

The opening reception

for the show will take

place from 7-9 p.m. Friday,

July 12. Hafer will be

in attendance along with

several other artists who

volunteered their time

and contributed work. The

opening reception will include

live music, drinks,

appetizers and more. Additionally,

Hafer will have

“The Sisters Project” book

on-hand at a reduced cost

and will sign purchased

copies.

The Vogt Visual Arts

Center is located at 17420

67th Court in Tinley Park.

Sisters will be on display

through July 27.

The Dish

The Whistle aims for family comfort,

caters to morning and night crowds alike

Alex Ivanisevic

Contributing Editor

A modern, Chicago vibe

with all the comforts of

a family restaurant, The

Whistle Sports Bar & Grill

in Tinley Park is serving

up homemade meals for

both night owls and early

birds alike.

Mark Mikesell, originally

from Louisville, and

his wife, Stephanie, who

grew up in New Lenox, established

the restaurant at

7537 W. 159th St., Tinley

Park in July of 2017.

Mark said he entered

the restaurant business after

working “in corporate

America for 15 years.”

Stephanie, on the other

hand, grew up around her

family members’ restaurants

her whole life. The

two said they were happy

to open their restaurant in

a spot that provided them

with what they were looking

for in an area with

which they were familiar.

“It is family friendly but

it is more like a downtown

bar on the south side,”

Mark said. “Our business

is 42 percent food, so people

come in here and food

is our leader. It is all fresh

— even our fried pickles

[$7.49], we batter ourselves

— and that is why

we are successful.”

Stephanie added, “We

also serve breakfast all

day, and the cool thing

about us is that Monday

through Saturday we are

open from 6 a.m. until 2

a.m., and Sundays we’re

open 11 a.m. until 2 a.m..

Our kitchen closes at 1

a.m. every night, which is

huge.”

There is also an ages

21-and-older gaming area

A few of customers’ favorite menu items at Whistle

Sports Bar & Grill are (clockwise from front left) the

fried pickles chips, Gino’s steak sandwich with fresh

cut fries, loaded nachos, the Crisp Punch and Hunch

Punch cocktails, the Mini Turkey O’Toole and Buffalo

wings. Alex Ivanisevic/22nd Century Media

in the restaurant, and gamers

are offered a complimentary

breakfast between

6 and 9 a.m. The Whistle

Sports Bar also has a lunch

special Monday-Friday, 11

a.m.-3 p.m., giving customers

an array of menu

items at discounted prices.

The Mikesells take pride

in the vast menu The Whistle

Sports bar offers with a

creative variety of appetizers,

entrees and more,

which they promise are

all homemade and fresh.

With the restaurant’s long

hours and full menu available

until 1 a.m., Mark and

Stephanie keep a staff of

roughly 30 employees.

“We’ve got a really good

crew here,” Stephanie said.

The Whistle already offers

catering from the full

menu, but because of the

restaurant’s popularity, the

Mikesells hope to open a

space next to its location

as a party venue to host

events by fall.

“The staff and the people

that come here are what

makes the sports bar so

successful,” said Dominic

Botta, Stephanie’s younger

brother, who manages

the restaurant. “The regulars

that come in weekly

and help make this bar go

round and really talk us

up are a part of that. Also,

having the staff here that

gives off the ambiance and

personality of the space we

like to have.”

Stephanie agreed and

said, “We try to treat everyone

like family,” adding

that they make the

effort to connect to the

surrounding community

and sponsor youth athletic

teams and activities.

Introducing the Dunree II: Crana Homes’ Newest Luxury Townhome Design at Brookside Meadows

Crana Homes, the acclaimed developer

of hundreds of homes in the southwest

suburbs has introduced another awardwinning

luxury townhome design, the

Dunree II, available now at Brookside

Meadows in Tinley Park. The Dunree II

joins the award-winning Lennan II and

Fahan II in a secluded area of trees, lakes

and open spaces. Prices range from the

upper-$200s – including site – and with

only a limited number of sites

available buyers should act quickly.

For45 yearsCrana Homes commitment

to complete customer satisfaction

has been summed up as “Pride of

Workmanship - Pride of Ownership.”

This commitment to quality and

satisfaction makes Brookside Meadows

the ‘best of the best’. The proof is in the

homes which are attractive, comfortable,

well-built and energy-efficient. But, the

entire community will soon be

sold out so now is the time to make a

commitment and select a home from

one of the award-winning floorplans of

the Dunree II, the Fahan II and the

Lennan II.

The new Dunree II is a generous three

bedroom design with 3,194 square feet

of total living space, including a large

1,226 sq.' basement. The master suite is

on the first floor which features a walk-in

shower and seat. The home has elegant

nine foot tall first floor ceilings, two and

a half baths, upgraded custom maple

kitchen cabinets, granite countertops,

upgraded light fixtures, and hardwood

oak floors in the foyer, powder room,

kitchen and living room. The Dunree

II also includes deluxe landscaping

and a two and a half car dry-walled

garage with a cement driveway. Enjoy

entertaining guests with a full walk out

basement and a 12' x 12' deck.

The Fahan II has a grand two-story

entrance foyer that leads to a split level

floor plan with three bedrooms (fourth

bedroom optional) and two and a half

baths. It is a beautiful 3,303 total square

foot luxury townhome (including a

1,216 sq.' basement). A large open space

kitchen with sleek granite countertops is

surrounded by generous custom maple

cabinets. The 1st floor master bedroom

offers an optional coffered ceiling and

the optional master bath includes a

relaxing soaker tub. Overlooking the

great room is an elegant loft. The home

is accented by beautiful oak throughout,

including doors, floors, railings and trim.

A full lookout basement and a patio are

also included in the Fahan II.

The Lennan II is a comfortable two/

three bedroom split level home and

includes most of the features of the

Fahan II except the master suite is on the

upper level and the Lennan II features a

dining/family room. It has 3,167 square

feet of total space (including a 1,049 sq.'

basement).

All homes have underground utilities,

deluxe landscaping and first floor

laundry rooms. Buyers can select options

like an impressive fireplace, walkout

basement, coffered ceilings, skylights and

a soaker tub in the master bath.

Lake Michigan water, a sprinkler system

and smoke detectors are provided.

Brookside Meadows also has important

cost-efficient, energy-saving features

like a high-efficiency furnace and

Lo-E glass installed throughout. Other

‘green’ features include an Energy

Miser hot water heater, vented soffits,

1.75" insulated entrance doors, energy

efficient appliances and Tuff-R insulated

wall sheathing.

Tucked away in a quiet section of Tinley

Park, Brookside Meadows is close to

everything: retail, dining, transportation

routes, Metra rail station and airports.

The school system is among the best in

the state and Tinley Park, named “The

Best Place In America to Raise aFamily”

by Bloomberg’s BusinessWeek, maintains

40 parks and the Bettenhausen indoor

recreational center.

The Dunree II floorplan gives

buyers a fresh set of new choices

at Brookside Meadows – but only

while they last! See the fully furnished

and beautifully decorated models which

are open Monday - Thursday 10:00am

to 4:00pm; Saturday and Sunday from

noon to 4:00pm; and open Friday by

RUNNING

Speed certainly Matt-ers in Stars and Stripes run

RANDY WHALEN

Freelance Reporter

The “welcome Matt” was out

last week at the Tinley Park Stars

and Stripes 5K Run.

The top three finishers of the

28th version of the annual July 4

race were all named Matt.

Lisle’s Mitch Gilbert, who

won the race last year and had

captured first in seven of the previous

eight races, did not run the

event and the Matts took over.

Tinley Park chiropractor Alexis

Landgrebe won the women's

division with a time of 21 minutes

and one-tenth of a second.

That was good for 30th overall.

The men’s champion was Matt

Gagen, from Lemont, with a

time of 16:40.3. It was the second

title in the past three years

for Gagen, a 2014 Lemont graduate,

who ran at Loras College

and then used his final year of

NCAA eligibility this past season

at DePaul University.

"This was my third year running

it," Gagen said of the event.

"I won it, got third and now won

it again. It feels pretty good. It

[winning] is always kind of the

goal. It's a mental thing. I can't

enter just to run.

"I also like the number of people

here. I like the atmosphere,

the food, the music, the people

celebrating. It's a feel-good overall

event that makes you want to

come back."

There were 641 people who

finished the event at McCarthy

Park. So, the fact that the top

three were named Matt was statistically

staggering. Coming in a

familiar spot of second place was

Matt Swiatkowski. The Orland

Park resident and 2002 Sandburg

graduate was second in the event

for the second straight year with

a time of 16:49.8.

The night before, in the Veterans

Liberty Run & Walk in

Orland Park, Swiatkowski also

finished the 2-mile race in second

place for the second straight

year.

Tinley Park resident Alexis

Landgrebe crosses the finish

line as the fastest female Stars

and Stripes participant.

"I had a faster time in both

races of about 15 seconds," said

Swiatkowski, who finished last

year in Tinley with a time of

17:06.1. "At least in the last couple

of races I'm improving. I'm

getting older (35) and still dropping

time, so that's good. It's just

a good day and a good gauge to

see where I'm at."

Matt Jung, a Tinley Park resident

who finished third with a

time of 17:02.1, had a poignant

reason to run.

"I ran in memory of Staff Sgt.

Michael J. Sutter," said Jung, a

2018 Lincoln-Way East graduate

who qualified for the NAIA

nationals in cross country for

St. Ambrose in 2018. "He was

a Tinley Park resident who died

in Iraq [on Dec. 26] in 2003.

"I didn't plan to run the race

this year but my mom [Janeen]

encouraged me. We were such

family friends with him and

it meant everything to run for

Stars and Stripes 5K participants start out the 5K course beginning on 80th Avenue. PHOTOS BY LAURIE

FANELLI/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

him."

Trevor Swanson (17:22.8) and

David Hansen (17:31.9) rounded

out the top five finishers.

Landgrebe has placed before

in the female division but won

the female category race for

the first time. Originally from

Michigan, she and her husband

Charles have a chiropractic practice

in town.

"We have been here for about

10 years," Landgrebe said. "I'm a

mom of five and had a baby last

year so I didn't run it then. It's

nice to have a goal and work to

achieve it."

Her and her family love Tinley

Park and the community camaraderie

the event brings.

"I have a heart for it," Landgrebe

said. "I try to run all three

of the Tinley races. I love the

community feeling and how

hard the community works to put

this together. Plus I enjoy seeing

friends and it's such a supportive

community when it comes to

running. Everyone is just having

Lemont resident Matthew Gagen is the overall winner of the Stars

and Stripes 5K in Tinley Park on July Fourth.

a good time."

Two other Tinley Park residents,

Isabelle Vaccaro (35th

overall, 21:10.1) and Samantha

Maciaga (36th overall, 21:12.5)

were the next two top female finishers.

The race kicked off a full day

of Fourth of July festivities.

"We couldn't have asked for

a better day," Executive Director

for Tinley Park-Park District

Shawn Roby said. "We had well

over 600 runners. It was a great

opportunity to bring the community

together for the Fourth

of July."

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

10 Questions

with Abby Skarbek

AREA SPORTS ROUNDUP

Flaherty earns league

commissioner’s award

Abby Skarbek is a senior-to-be basketball

player at Andrew High School who

is also a cancer survivor profiled in the

June 27 edition of The Tinley Junction.

How did you get involved in

basketball?

I watched the games when I was

younger. I was attracted to it. I went to

St. George when I was younger and it had

volleyball and basketball. I played both

but fell in love with basketball.

What do you love about the sport?

I love the teamwork of it. It’s not an individual

sport. You have to rely on your

teammates. If one person is not having

a good game, your teammates pick you

right up. It’s five players working as one.

What’s going on with college?

If I play, I play, but it’s not necessary for

me to play basketball in college. I’m looking

more for the academics of college. I

fell in love with the University of Georgia

and that’s my No. 1 choice right now. I’m

going to look at a few more schools. My

major isn’t really clear yet. I’m playing it

by ear. I’m keeping my options open.

What kind of pump-up music do

you listen to before games?

I listen to a lot of country. Luke Bryan.

That’s what gets me motivated to play well.

Is there a TV show you could binge

watch forever?

“NCIS.” My grandma [Deborah James]

and I bond over that. Any time it’s on, I

think of her. I can always sit down with

her and watch episodes and episodes of

that show.

Is there a movie you can watch

over and over and not get sick of

it?

“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.”

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

It’s a Netflix movie that I can relate to. It’s

a high school setting with challenges that

I am going through and my friends are going

through. It’s like it’s tailored to me.

Is there a food that if they paid

you a million bucks you still

wouldn’t eat it?

Fish. Salmon. That’s my biggest fear.

If you could have a dinner with

anyone – dead or alive – who

would it be with?

Alex Morgan. I’ve always looked up

to her. She’s always been a role model.

She goes out to every game with the best

attitude. I would like to just pick her

brain and see where she gets all of that

spunk on the field of play.

If they made a movie about your

life, who should play you?

I would say me. I can’t think of anyone

else. Plus, I could portray my emotions.

What would the title of the movie

be?

“The Walking Miracle.”

Thunderbolts looking to dig deeper into the playoffs

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

Any player, parent or

fan who endured Andrew’s

1-8 football season

in 2016 is likely happy

with the direction the program

is going in.

In coach Adam Lewandowski’s

first season, the

Thunderbolts lost eight

straight before pulling off

a 17-6 victory over winless

District 230 foe Stagg

to conclude the season.

The 2017 season found

the Bolts back in the Illinois

High School Association

playoffs for the first

time since 2013. They

faced Plainfield North in

the first round in Class 7A

and lost 41-6.

Last season found the

Bolts back in the playoffs

where they ran into

a buzzsaw and dropped a

42-11 decision to Nazareth

Academy, which

went on to win the Class

7A title after battering

four more opponents by

a combined score of 161-

79.

One could argue that

there were a number of

first-round teams the

Bolts could have handled,

but they had to play what

turned out to be the best

team in the class right off

the bat.

Some impact players

are scheduled to be back

for the Thunderbolts and

thoughts of a third straight

playoff appearance are

prevalent during summer

camp. So is a deeper run

into the playoffs.

“It’s going to take a lot

of hard work,” safety Joe

DeHaan said, “It will take

effort on the field and off

the field. In the weight

room. In the class room.

We have the guys to win

a state championship.

But it’s about everybody

working together and

finding that team chemistry

because team chemistry

can take you as far as

you need to go.”

Offensive and defensive

threat Rocco Iannantone

said he would like to

see this team get over the

hump of that first game in

the playoffs.

“If you can get past that

first round game, you are

in the second round and

you are looking at the

quarterfinals,” he said.

“Then after that, it’s one

game at a time.”

He likes what he has

seen in the summer.

“From Week 1 last

year to Week 1 this year,

the progression has been

excellent,” he said. “We

have a lot of returning

starters and I think our

whole backfield except

our quarterback is returning.

The receivers are

looking good. The offense

is looking tight and the

defense is where it needs

to be.

After two 6-4 seasons,

Lewandowski is also itching

to coach his team beyond

the first round.

“You have to stay

healthy and that’s always

at the top of the list,” the

coach said. “The other

thing is that the buy-in

has to be strong and it has

to go past the starters. It

has to be the guys on special

teams. It has to be the

guys who are the second

and third strings. The entire

program. The sophomores.

The freshmen.

The freshmen B-teamers.

They all have to be 100

percent in the same direction.”

Andrew opens the season

with a non-conference

game at Kewaskum in

THURSDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK

Officials numbers are down - is verbal abuse to blame?

Jeff Vorva

Sports Editor

I

don’t know when and

how the tradition of

booing and yelling

at umpires and referees

started, but it did many

decades ago and we may

be paying the price now.

Think about it. What

other authority figure gets

to get chewed out and

called vile names by large

groups of people and have

it be socially acceptable?

Sure, people yell at cops,

judges, teachers, bosses,

politicians and others in

authority. But it’s generally

not accepted.

Umps and refs?

Fair game, every game.

Long before I was born,

a group of pro baseball

players including Phil

Rizzuto, Ralph Branca and

Roy Campanella recorded

a funny song called “The

Umpire.”

Some of the lines

include “We ain’t got no

use for the umpire unless

he calls ‘em our way,”

“He’s blind as a bat,” “Up

goes his thumb and the

bum says ‘You’re out.’”

and “He’s right when he’s

wrong and he’s wrong

when he’s right.”

This was a kid’s record,

by the way. Teach em’

early that officials suck.

In the pecking order of

sports, what would happen

if an athlete yelled and berated

his coach publicly the

same way a coach berates

an official? Bench time

and maybe getting kicked

off the team would be in

his or her future.

I’m not being a prude.

And I’m not saying it

should stop (except for

the unnecessary name

calling - cut it out you idiot

morons!). And I find “The

Umpire” to be a hilarious

ditty.

But there is a nationwide

shortage of refs and umps

and it’s getting so bad that

some states are encouraging

high school athletic

directors to schedule their

Friday night football

games on Saturday.

In Illinois, Inter Athletic

Council of Officials

Recruitment Chairman

Gary Grohovena could

spend a couple hours citing

facts and figures about the

decline in the numbers of

officials and he would just

be getting started.

“The numbers keep going

down and the average

age of a football official is

50,” Grohovena said. “In

five years, I’m wondering…wow.

“It’s nationwide, not just

Illinois. It’s most sports.

Baseball and softball are in

trouble. Football is getting

there. Basketball…maybe

not yet, but the numbers

are not growing the way

they should. Wrestling,

soccer, etc., etc., you name

it. They need more officials

in everything. And

there are no gender walls

either. It affects boys and

girls sports.”

He said he is at a loss

to figure out why people

don’t want the job.

The Tinley Park

resident, who has taken

his share of verbal garbage

in more than 30 years on

the job, admits that the

younger generation might

not want to deal with the

abuse, especially when it

gets physical.

“Unfortunately, you see

on the news a clip of someone

attacking a referee,”

Grohovena said. “You see

someone knocking down

a baseball umpire. That’s

scary when that happens.

But that’s just really rare.”

What’s not rare is the

constant yakking from

coaches and fans. Grohovena

said he is not sure

if that totally the reason

why the numbers are down

but it might be a part of the

reason.

Grohovena hopes that

people who dismiss being

officials for that reason

realize that other walks of

life offer criticism, too.

“You deal with these

challenges every day in

life,” he said. “If there is

a play at the plate and the

umpire calls the runner

Gary Grovena, a longtime referee and officials recruiter

from Tinley Park, executes a holding signal. JEFF

VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

safe, everybody on one

side says ‘Yay!’ and everybody

on the other side says

‘Boo!’ That boo…that’s

just a part of the game. You

have to accept that.

“If you work at McDonald’s,

someone can toss a

bag of fries back at you if

they are overdone. You can

get yelled at if the Coke is

too watery. How do you

deal with that? If you work

in a retail situation, you

have to deal with people

who are upset. You have to

explain to them what you

are going to do and how

you are going to handle it.

Policemen? They are very

good at conflict resolution.

Teachers deal with it all

the time. Most of us have

some conflict resolution

skills there.

“People are yelling and

some people don’t want to

be yelled at. But you deal

with it.

Grohovena admits officiating

is not for everyone.

But the 68-year-old

fell in love with it when he

started in his 30s.

“I envy the new officials

because they have more

games ahead of them and

I have more games behind

me,” he said. “The best

people I know are sports

officials. I’ve made so

many friends.

“I enjoy being on the

field. I enjoy the game.

I enjoy the high school

game and I enjoy the

people I work with.”

Now if we can just have

people on the sidelines and

in the stands tone it down

a bit.

In last week’s column

about the youth team

Jayhawks, I accidentally

Pat Brankin as Ryan

it’s because Ryan is getting

“We have the guys to win a state championship. But it’s about

everybody working together and finding that team chemistry

because team chemistry can take you as far as you need to go.”
