District 203 have negotiated

an Intergovernmental

Agreement authorizing

the Village to utilize below-grade

“The stormwater management

project is a critical

one for the Village of

Village President

Chris Rintz said. “New

Trier’s IGA is a major step

in a multifaceted process

that will vastly improve

the way water is handled

after a major rain event,

and alleviate flooding

concerns for many of our


As part of the agreement,

District 203 will

realize stormwater and

drainage improvements

to Duke Childs Field, and

will be able to reconfigure

the athletic fields and

facilities on the property.

The agreement specifies

which parties are responsible

for financing and

building various parts

of the project: the Village

will make stormwater

improvements and

District 203 will make

athletic improvements.

Under the terms of the

agreement, neither party

is obligated to make their

improvements, but if they

do, they will not deviate

substantially from those

discussed in the plans approved

by both the Village

and District 203.

Student-painted rain barrels to be installed at D35 schools

Students learn

about green


during Summer


Megan Bernard, Editor

After a wet start to the

summer, some of Glencoe’s

youngest residents

learned about water conservation

during Glencoe

District 35’s Summer Explorations


Summer Explorations

started June 17 and ran

through Friday, July 12.

The session offered a variety

of classes to local students

who were looking to

During the week of July

8, a group of students from

the Backyard Art Summer

camp had a special visitor:

District of Greater


Wooley, who works in

MWRD’s public affairs

department, taught students

from first through

fifth grade about their

local waste water treatment

plant — Terrence J.

O’Brien Water Reclamation

Plant in Skokie — and

how they clean waste water.

“We release water into

the local waterways, but

first we clean and treat

it,” Wooley said of the

130-year-old organization.

to green infrastructure,

native plants, green

Watts Center to transform into Hogwarts for camp

Anna Schultz

Editorial Intern

Journey through the

wonderful wizarding

world of Harry Potter with

the Glencoe Park District’s

second-ever Harry

Potter: Wizarding World

summer camp.

From 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

Aug. 19-23, young Harry

Potter fans between the

ages of 7 and 9 will have

the chance to bring the

mystical books and movies

to life at the Watts

Center — also known as

Hogwarts — at 305 Randolph

St., Glencoe.

“Campers will get to

see what it’s like to be a

Hogwarts student for a

week,” said Erin Classen,

spokesperson for the

Glencoe Park District.

The young witches and

wizards will begin their

time at Hogwarts being

sorted into one of the four

houses — gryffindor, hufflepuff,

slytherin or ravenclaw

— by the infamous

Sorting Hat.

They will then use their

magic, as well as their

imaginations, technology,

and science to work together

and build a working

Goblet of Fire.

“They are using interesting

technology, like the

Arduino microcontroller

to create a working Goblet

of Fire, which will react

when items are placed

into the goblet,” Classen


“It’s a fun way to learn

about chemistry,” she


Hogwarts students will

use chemistry to make

some special colorful

bubbling potions in their

potions classes throughout

the week.

At the end of the camp,

the wizards and witches

will even get to use a

green screen to make their

own Invisibility Cloak.

“They will get to turn

the amazing invisibility

cloak into a reality,” Classen


“The company TinkRworks

contacted us

with the idea and they

created the curriculum for

us,” she added.

This is the second year

of this unique-themed

camp and the Glencoe

Park District’s partnership

with TinkRworks.

“The camp allows kids

to explore science in a

creative way,” Classen


The Harry Potter: Wizarding

World camp will

only hold 12 campers,

creating a friendly, welcoming


The exciting camp experience

will allow kids

to bring home their own

goblet, meet more wizards

and witches, and of course

show off their magical

wizarding powers.

the Glencoe Park District

offers each summer include:

Bionic Bike, Rockets

and STEAM Academy.

Duo promotes women’s empowerment and conservation in Glencoe

Submitted Content

To a packed house at

Chicago Botanic Garden’s

Burnstein Hall, former

Australian special operations

sniper turned wildlife

advocate Damien Mander,

and game ranger Vimbai

Kumire told a compelling

story about a relatively

new initiative that

is “changing the face of

conservation in Africa,”

according to the speakers.

Mander, who has attained

worldwide attention

for his advanced strategies

in fighting poaching in

eastern and southern Africa,

was in Glencoe to present

the International Anti

Poaching Foundation’s

latest groundbreaking initiative,

called Akashinga.

Akashinga is comprised of

all-women ranger teams

who protect wildlife from

poachers in areas of Zimbabwe’s

wilderness that used

to be patrolled only by trophy

hunting outfitters.

Sergeant Vimbai Kumire

who, with her 16-member

team, have been patrolling

in the Lower Zambezi

Wilderness of Zimbabwe

for over a year and a half,

told her story – one of an

abused, then abandoned

mother of two who could

barely feed her two children,

much less send them

to school before attending

a recruiting meeting of at

risk women vying to become

The capacity of the

women to be effective

rangers, which was challenged

by many when the

unit was formed, has been

proven several times since.

“Several years ago, I recruited

169 men to be rangers

in a special force and

by the second day of training,

there were 3 left. After

three days with the women

recruits, only three had

pulled off,” Mander said.

Mander added during

the training that followed,

getting to know those that

made it through, and in the

deployment since, he knew

there was something special

being formed.

The event is part of a national

tour, raising awareness

of the Akashinga with

its dual purpose of conservation

and women’s empowerment.

The organization

is currently expanding

its patrol areas with help

from a grant by the Leonardo

DiCaprio Foundation.

The Akashinga has received

broad coverage in

international media for

their breakthrough strategy

of deploying women-only

teams to ensure local community

support. Women

return significantly more

economic return to their local

communities than a like

force of male rangers and

exponentially more than

trophy hunting in the same

areas ever did.

“Our rangers’ salaries

create more economic value

to these local communities

in 34 days than trophy

hunting provided in a full

year,” Mander said. “Jane

Goodall, one of our advisory

board members has said,

’When we put the local

communities at the heart of

conservation, we improve

the lives of people, animals

and the environment.’”

The rangers are successful

in essential law enforcement

as well. They have

generated 104 arrests and

convictions in their first

18 months of deployment,

including arresting deadly

cyanide poaching teams,

who kill multiple elephants

in a single incident. Event

host and Chicago news

legend Bill Kurtis noted in

his opening remarks, that

what impressed him about

the work of the Akashinga

wasn’t simply the large

number of arrests, but that

all of the arrests were made

without firing a shot.

“There is a measurable

decrease in poaching in the

area thanks to the Akashinga,”

Mander said proudly,

“and a significant level of

community support.”

The event at the Botanic

Garden, was hosted by

Chicago news legend Bill

Kurtis and the Duane Morris

law firm, who helped

Kumire obtain a visa to

make the trip. A similar trip

planned last year was hampered

by the denial of a visa

for the rangers last fall.

The event was an introduction,

of sorts, to the

Chicago market. Mander

has been to Chicago only

once before, at an event at

the Brookfield Zoo. He has

committed to adding Chicago

as a regular stop on

his future tours of the US.

In Memoriam

New Trier alum had ‘love for all of us and for his faith’

Alan P. Henry

Freelance Reporter

An unwavering commitment


his Catholic

faith, a deep


to family,

and the inner



to model

courage and caring in the

face of personal medical

misfortune informed the

consequential life of Joseph

Stewart Cosgrove,

who died July 2 at age 57

following a 10-year battle

with multiple myeloma.

“Love for all of us and

for his faith — that was

the theme of everything

he ever did,” said Linda


Cosgrove, his wife of 27

years. There was also this

unspoken truth: “Faith and

trust and surrender, and it’s

all going to be OK. Don’t

worry. God’s got your

back,” she said. “That was

sort of his motto when

things would get worse.

Like, ‘I’m not worried

about it. God is right here

with me.’”

Joe Cosgrove was born

in Milwaukee and raised

in Kenilworth and from an

early age had a deep sense

of faith. Many mornings,

while a student at Joseph

Sears School and then at

New Trier High School,

he would ride his bike to

mass at Faith, Hope &


Early on he had an understanding

heart as well.

In a posting on legacy.

com, former New Trier

classmate Francis Ivanovich

recalled one particular

kindness. “We were not

friends and I really did not

know him at all, but he

stood out as a young teenager

who was not afraid

to go against the grain; to

stand against the bullying

of misfits like me.”

Cosgrove graduated

from Notre Dame in 1984,

then went on to forge a

successful career with

IBM, Solomon Brothers

and Strong Capital Management,

where he was a

bond salesman.

In 2006, Cosgrove suffered

a brain tumor, which

impaired his short term

memory and forced him to

leave the world of finance.

Not to be deterred, he

quickly became a beloved

twice-weekly volunteer at

Misericordia, a community

of care that maximizes

potential for persons with

mild to profound developmental


“He loved working in

the bakery and the greenhouse

and working with

the residents there,” said

his daughter, Claire. “He

loved volunteering, he

didn’t miss working at all.

We joked that some people

would feel lost without

their work. He was just

grateful to have more time

with the family and get to

relax with us.”

Joe Cosgrove’s volunteering

slowed down, but

did not stop, after he was

diagnosed with multiple

myeloma in 2009. As the

struggle with cancer progressed,

Cosgrove’s spirit

did not waver.

“He never lost the faith

that he was on the right

path, and that we were

there with him,” said his

son Patrick. “Throughout

all of it he was incredibly

selfless, he was always

still volunteering and still

doing everything for everyone

else, making sure

we were ok. He was never

‘woe is me.’ It was always

‘are you guys going to be


“He fought for 10

years,” Linda Cosgrove

said. “He really wanted

to see everyone graduate,

and got to see (youngest

daughter) Margaret graduate

from Fordham University

in May.”

Joe Cosgrove loved his

life as a husband and father.

As a family, they enjoyed

long road trips and

KOA camping trips and

bike rides to the Botanic

Gardens. He loved to

grill and at Christmastime

made gingerbread houses.

Margaret recalled the

secret signals they used

to give each other. “We

would scratch our noses

and that would be our sign

of saying ‘I love you.’ He

couldn’t show it or say it

enough. He signed all of

his cards with xx’s and o’s

and hugs and kisses. His

love was abundant. It was

seen and felt all the time.”

He also had an abundant

love for Notre Dame

football. “He always had

a blast going to those

games,” said his brother,

John Cosgrove. Of course,

Joe was in the stands when

the Fighting Irish won the

1988 national championship

game in Tempe, Arizona.

John Russell, a longtime

professional colleague and

friend, said that a part of

Joe’s legacy will be the

example he and Linda set

in their marriage. “A marriage

is a foundation for

a family, but a great marriage

is something the

whole world can see and

say ‘this is really special.’”

Their marriage, he said, “is

a great example of the way

we should all be.’’

Architecture students design home for Winnetka floodplain

Christine Adams

Freelance Reporter

A recent home design

competition saw dozens of

Illinois Institute of Technology

architecture students

vying to create an

affordable home that could

be built in a floodplain

on a Winnetka lot, and it

generated several designs

that have the potential to

change how homes are

built in the village.

The Farnsworth Redux

Design Competition was

initiated by Bob Footlik,

a Glencoe engineer who

along with his sister inherited

their parents’ Winnetka

home two blocks away

from the Skokie Lagoons.

A longtime proponent of

affordable housing options

on the North Shore, Footlik

wondered what could

be done with the floodprone

property. He wanted

to avoid what he called the

North Shore paradigm of

knocking it down just to

build a “McMansion” with

a floodable basement and

nonnative plantings, and

came up with the idea of

building affordably.

Inspired by architect

Ludwig Mies van der

Rohe’s famed Farnsworth

home in Plano, Illinois —

a home that was built upon

stilts — Footlik conceptualized

the Farnsworth

Redux Design Competition,

which gave IIT architecture

students the chance

to design a home suitable

for the lot, and make some


Footlik, who was an adjunct

faculty member at

IIT for 10 years, worked

with Dr. Eva Kultermann,

associate dean at IIT’s

College of Architecture, to

develop the competition’s

parameters: the design

should be 800 square feet,

have a $100,000 budget,

Illinois Institute of Technology students Blake Hageman

and Sarah Kay Stephens won The Farnsworth Redux

Design Competition after submitting their home design

be one story, and be a truly

marketable idea.

Also, to form the basic

structure, students were

challenged to utilize shipping

containers, an economical

building choice

that is beginning to take

hold globally.

Students were given the

duration of their Spring

Break last March to work

on their submissions,

which were reviewed by

a team of judges from

Sustainable Imprints, Inc.

and Coldwell Banker Realty’s

Winnetka office.

After looking through all

designs with the criteria

of creativity, practicality,

constructability, sustainability,

compliance with

submission requirements

and a minimum impact on

the floodplain, the $5,000

grand prize was given to

the team of Blake Hageman

and Sarah Kay Stephens,

fourth- and firstyear

students, respectively.

“They did a good job

putting together the masses

to make something

beautiful,” Footlik said.

“It’s suitable for the climate,

easy to build and affordable,”

he added.

Their design, intended

for a young couple buying

their first suburban home,

features a bedroom, one

bathroom, a flexible office

space and an open design

concept with two outdoor

terraces. Raised on concrete

piers and steel beams

five feet above grade, the

house is ADA compliant.

“The shipping containers

were useful in visualizing

the space,” Stephens said.

Agreeing, Hageman

added that “the more constraints

on a project, the

easier the choices are.”

Both expressed their excitement

for winning and

their gratitude for the realistic

design opportunity.

“Architecture is about

crafting things to meet

people’s needs,” Stephens


Footlik has taken the

steps to build a scale

model of the design and

is actively exploring the

possibility of building the

home on his family’s property.

He expressed hope

that this competition will

inspire positive, affordable

outcomes for more of Winnetka’s

“orphan lots,” parcels

that are smaller than

typical, prone to flooding,

or have other qualities that

make them difficult to sell

and build upon.

“There’s more than one

way to build real estate on

the North Shore,” he said.

And while Footlik says

this competition began as

an intellectual exercise, it

has become a passion — a

passion that other Winnetkans

may soon have the

opportunity to share.

Former Sacred Heart altar server now ordained as priest

New Trier alum

joins priesthood at

NYC church in June

Submitted Content

The Rev. Christopher E.

Grodecki, S.J., a Jesuit in

the Maryland Province of

the Society of Jesus was

ordained to the priesthood

on June 8 at the Fordham

University Church in the

Bronx, New York.

Grodecki grew up in

Winnetka. His family were

active members of Sacred

Heart Church, where he

was an altar server and

sang in the parish choir. He

graduated from New Trier

High School in 2001. He

then attended Georgetown

University, and in 2005

received his bachelor’s

degree in English and in

German literature before

receiving a master’s degree

in German. He remained in

D.C., working as a writer

and researcher at a nonprofit

public-interest law

firm and participating in

both social and young adult

ministries as a parishioner

of St. Matthew’s Cathedral.

Grodecki maintained his

friendships with the Jesuits

at Georgetown and began

to discern his vocation to

the Society of Jesus. He

entered the Jesuits in 2009,

and as a novice, served as

co-teacher and Ignatian

Identity assistant at Washington

Jesuit Academy.

He was then missioned to

Loyola University Chicago,

where he received a

master’s degree in philosophy.

While in Chicago, he was

a Special Religious Education

catechist at Queen of

Angels Parish; catechist of

the English RCIA program

at St. Procopius Parish; and

chaplain to the Loyola University

Chicago women’s

soccer team. Thereafter,

Grodecki taught philosophy

and served as director

of the RCIA program

at Saint Joseph’s University

Glencoe: Yesterday and Today

Greetings from Glencoe

Glencoe Historical


Contributing Columnist

It’s vacation time!

Families from our community

are traveling

throughout the United

States and abroad — some

on summer trips and some

to drop off kids at camp. It

wasn’t too long ago when

a family went on vacation,

they sent postcards back to

their friends and neighbors.

It is still relatively easy

to find postcards in the

souvenir shops at major

tourist attractions. Did you

know, however, that there

is a Glencoe connection?

(Of course, there is always

a Glencoe connection!)

The man who revolutionized

the use of the

postcard was Curt Teich,

who lived in Glencoe and

raised his family in the

home at 535 Longwood

Ave. Curt Otto Teich

(pronounced “’tike”)

was born in Griez (or

Lobenstein), Germany

where his father operated

a newspaper chain.

Curt came to the United

States shortly after the

1893 World’s Columbian

Exposition in Chicago.

The first picture postcard

(no envelope required)

had been created for the

1893 World’s Fair. When

1898 postal regulations

created a penny stamp for

the cards, Teich decided to

settle in Chicago and open

a downtown print shop

specializing in postcard


Teich is best known

for producing cards that

are instantly recognizable

with bubble letters reading:

“Greetings from ...”

with the name of a town

with images of landmarks

and attractions inside

the letters. That style of

postcard originated in

Germany, but it was Teich

who successfully imported

it to the United States.

Traveling across the

country via train in 1905,

Teich stopped in towns

and took pictures for many

of the early cards. Later,

when salespeople and

photographers were added

to the employee roster,

the company expanded

to include postcards from

outside the United States

as well. The images featured

roadside attractions,

architecture, famous highways

(such as Route 66)

and interiors. The company

“inadvertently created an

invaluable historical record

of 20th century Americana

from fashion to transportation,”

In 1910, Teich moved

the business to a 17-yearold

factory on the north

side of Chicago that

became the largest volume

postcard printer in the

world, employing more

than one hundred artists to

retouch the photos. An additional

1,000 employees

worked there three shifts

a day during peak years

prior to World War II.

During that era, the company

produced about half

of the maps used by U.S.

troops, ceding its postcard

printing leadership.

In 1939, Curt Teich, Sr.

suffered two heart attacks,

but the firm continued

under the presidency of his

son, Curt Teich, Jr. who ran

the business until he sold it

in 1974, the same year that

Curt Teich, Sr. died at the

age of 97. Four years later,

the new owners closed the

business. The building still

stands in Chicago at 1733

W. Irving Park Rd. It has

been adaptively reused as

loft residential units, appropriately

called Postcard


Fortunately, however,

Curt Teich not only

printed postcards, he

also collected them. He

kept 15 copies of every

postcard his company

produced. This mammoth

collection (along with production

records) is now

preserved at the Newberry

Library, Chicago and is

Village surprised by

$6.1M overhaul of Lake

Bluff interchange

For years, commuters

traveling through the interchange

at Illinois Route

176 and U.S. Route 41

in Lake Bluff have faced

considerable daily traffic

congestion and safety hazards.

But a long-planned

upgrade to the interchange

is now closer to completion,

now that $61 million

has been secured for

the project. The funding

comes from the recently

signed Rebuild Illinois

capital construction plan,

which includes nearly $45

billion for state repairs to

roads, bridges and transit

over the span of six years.

Bids denied for water main

replacement project

The Winnetka Village

Council voted to reject

bids for a water main replacement

project at Westmoor

Road and Mount

Pleasant Street, instead

opting to delay the project

and put it out to bid

again in early 2020. Two

bids for the project —

from Berger Excavating

Contractors and A Lamp

Concrete Contractors —

to replace sections of the

water main distribution

system at Westmoor and

Mount Pleasant both came

in at around $1.05 million

(the bids were separated

by just under $2,200).

Meanwhile, the Village

engineer’s estimate came

in at just under $796,000.

stormwater project made

The stormwater project

took another step forward.

The Wilmette Park

Board reached a consensus

on what configuration to

move forward with at each

park to be able to provide

direction to the Village

at its July 8 meeting. The

board reached a unanimous

consensus to move

forward with alternate

Park and alternate

configuration 1 at Hibbard

Park, while reaching a majority

consensus to move

forward with the original

configuration at Community


Alternate configuration

2 at Thornwood Park is

After an extensive

North Shore School

District 112 filled two

significant positions for

the upcoming school year

9 meeting.

The Board unanimously

approved nominee Sergio

The district received

about 100 applications for

the position, and Deputy

Superintendent Monica

deservingly emerged

among the pack.

“Sergio’s positivity just

shined throughout the entire

A Word From The (Former) Wilmette President

New Trier gives us the old ‘razzle dazzle’

John Jacoby

Contributing Columnist

Over the past

several weeks,

our local taxing

bodies have been mailing

out their periodic

glossy multi-page reports,

intended to keep us residents

abreast of what’s

happening in their various

realms. It’s important for

these governmental units

to communicate with residents,

but sometimes, in

my opinion, the authors

of these reports slip into

the “razzle dazzle” mode

— too much spin, and not

enough objectivity and

transparency. Here’s an

example from New Trier

High School’s recent

“2018 Annual Report.”

Under the self-congratulatory

headline, “Strong

Financial Stewardship

and Planning,” the Report

sets forth selected financial

data. None of this

data, with one exception,

compares NT’s financial

performance to the

performance of other high

school districts. The one

exception is a table that

compares New Trier’s

“Tax Rate” to the Tax

Rates of six “neighboring

districts.” The table

asserts that New Trier’s

2017 Rate ($1.99) is way

below the Rates in these

“neighboring districts”

(where Rates range from

$2.10 to $3.41) and

among the “lowest” in the

state. There’s no explanation

of what a $1.99 Tax

Rate means or how it’s

applied. In fact, a Tax

Rate standing alone is a

meaningless number. The

only reason I can imagine

for NT’s including this

table in its Report is to

razzle dazzle us taxpayers

into believing that we’re

being taxed less heavily

than taxpayers in other


So I decided to create

a table that presents more

information than just the

Tax Rate. I obtained the

data from the Illinois

State Board of Education’s

“Report Cards”

for 2017-2018 (the most

recent Report Cards

available). My table

includes NT and the six

“neighboring districts”

listed by NT, plus two

other districts (Highland

Park and Stevenson)

which I regard as more

“neighboring” than some

of those listed by NT.

NT and other districts

rely on property taxes

as their main source of

revenue. They levy

taxes on the Equalized

Assessed Value of the

property in their district

(EAV) to raise the money

needed to educate the

students in the district.

When the total EAV per

student is relatively high,

the Tax Rate tends to be

low. When the total EAV

per student is relatively

low, the Tax Rate tends

From the Editor

A fresh perspective

Megan Bernard

When I started

working in

the North

Shore, I quickly learned

that stormwater is a hot

topic and something many

homeowners around here

deal with regularly.

I sat through and

covered many meetings

across North Shore towns

regarding stormwater,

floodplains and strategies

to relieve standing water

on properties.

Unfortunately after

buying our first home

in the suburbs, we have

dealt with flooding in

our backyard as well and

we’re currently planning

an extensive French drain

project. It’s a helpless

feeling to have when

water flow seems to be

never ending in places you

cannot control. Thankfully,

however, no water has

damaged our actual home,

as I know this isn’t always

and research. The Teich

postcards recall an era

when people sent vacation

greetings home by mail;

an era when the world

seemed more far-flung and

people were impressed

by pictures of unknown

adventures. So, the next

time you are travelling

the case local residents


This week, I found it interesting

to read a feature

by our reporter, Christine

Adams, on a program initiated

by Glencoe resident,

Bob Footlik.

Footlik worked with architecture

students from Illinois

Institute of Technology

to design a home for a

floodplain in Winnetka.

Instead of trying to

alleviate flooding issues

before building on a site

on a floodplain, Footlik

asked the students to

design a home that could

withstand it.

He told me the concept

was to use “affordable, less

than perfectly buildable

sites for flexible housing.”

Christine detailed the

designs submitted for the

contest, which was judged

by local brokers from

Coldwell Banker and a developer

who is interested

in building these projects.

In all, it was a different

perspective to look at, as

many people, including

myself, are dealing with

similar problems at our


If more homes were

students designed, perhaps

we wouldn’t be dealing

postcards famous.

to be high. The point is

that NT’s Tax Rate is

low because, as my table

shows, the District’s EAV

per student is quite high.

In other words, NT’s low

Tax Rate isn’t really an

indicator of “Strong Financial

Stewardship.” It’s

a reflection of high property

values in the district.

Indeed, even with a low

Tax Rate, NT raises and

spends more per student

than virtually all the other

listed districts.

The foregoing isn’t a

criticism of NT’s financial

management. I have

no reason to believe that

NT’s Board and Administration

aren’t good

stewards. We demand

educational excellence,

and excellence costs

money. I do have a

problem, though, with the

reports (not just NT’s)

Incidentally, your

recently issued 2018

Property Tax Bill shows

that NT’s 2018 Tax Rate

is $2.11 per $100 of EAV,

and 26 percent of your

total tax payment will

go to NT. If the Assessor

has determined, for

example, that your home

After three months of

intense language and cultural

training with a fellow

group of 25 new recruits

in San Rita, two hours outside

Panama City, he was

assigned to Los Canones,

a rural community of 200

with no road when he first

got there.

The roughly 10 squaremile

area had around 30

widely scattered homes.

Families, including the

one he lived with the entire

time, generally consist of

three generations, but usually

not the fathers, who

live elsewhere and return

periodically because there

is little work in the community.

“Some parents would

come and go,” perhaps

bringing back money, he

said. Most people live on

government payments and

subsistence farming.

His family survived on a

diet of rice, corn and yuca.

They also had chickens and

a pig.

“A lot of times it was rice

for breakfast, rice for lunch

and rice for dinner,” he

said. “They are not getting

with a cage on the back

would stop to pick up anyone

they might pay for with barter

or with money they often

kept in a Ziploc bag.

Two families had an

old car, “but on rainy days

Less than half the families

had any electricity, and

that was undependable,

often hooked up to car batteries.

“Most of the time when

it got dark people were either

he added.

To use a cell phone, “you

had to hike into the hills

and find spot where you

could get reception.” Recharging

was problematic.

There are two rooms in the

community school, which

had roughly 40 students.

his family’s living complex

“You couldn’t be inside

during the day,” he said.

“The sun would heat up the

zinc and it was just like a

also the Panamanian cultural

marker of hospitality

Adelheidi’s brings a new flavor to downtown Winnetka

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

When the Schuppenhauers

opened their first

Adelheidi’s Organics restaurant

in Naples, Fla.,

in 2011, the hope was to

bring organic, glutenfree

items to southwest

Florida. Fast forward

eight years and the same

has done the same with

their newest store, which

opened May 8 in Winnetka.

”Winnetka really needed

one,” manager Tania

Nesterak said about why

the new store was opened

in Winnetka. “[They

thought] it would be really

popular in this area

and people really like

vegan and gluten-free

stuff. They’re more into

this kind of life. It’s a

perfect place. We opened

I think the same day as

the arcade, so we have a

toy store here, we have an

arcade here, we have ice

cream shop here, so it’s

the perfect location.”

The organic ice cream

shop is located at 522 Lincoln

Ave. in downtown

Winnetka in the Winnetka

Walk property with fellow

tenants Games on

Lincoln, an arcade, and

Beat Street, a toy store.

The Winnetka location is

the only one outside of the

original Naples location,

as well as a factory outlet

in Naples.

Since the store opened

in May, Nesterak says the

reception has been a positive


“We have regular customers

who come here a

lot,” she said. “It’s really

cool. I have people who

I know their name, who I

don’t even need to explain

anything on the menu to.

They know everything.

“It’s been really busy,

especially for dinnertime

because we’re open real

late. We’re open until 11

p.m. So after people have

dinner, at 8, 9 p.m. we

have a huge line.”

While Adelheidi’s might

be known for gelato and

ice cream, it does also have

multiple other items such

as cakes, coffee, shakes,

smoothies and more. The

smoothies are made of

real, organic fruits, while

the shakes and floats are

made with grass-fed organic

End of seventh grade.

Well, I guess I was so tall

and it was the better choice

for me (than hockey).

Who’s your favorite

basketball player?

I didn’t really watch

basketball ever, but maybe

LeBron James. No, DeAndre

Jordan. I don’t really

watch sports.

What’s your favorite

TV show?

I like Borat. It’s featured

in the Ali G show. It

just makes me laugh every


What is your favorite

basketball moment?

Winning the eighth

grade Central School

Championship. It was

great to win the championship

with my Glencoe

kids. I also liked beating

Niles North in the sectional

final and beating Evanston

in their place. The

whole journey was just a

good time.

What is one thing

people don’t know

about you?

I love to ski. Avid skier.

basketball for a few

years. The last place I was

Teleporting. If I’m in a bad

much.’ I just think that’s ridiculous

because women should get paid at

what level you’re at. I don’t think

it should matter gender-wise.

It was also the first time the

United States women’s team

sported gay pride jerseys in the

month of June, which is gay pride

month. How do you think the

women’s team have helped gay

pride as well?

Weaver: I don’t know honestly,

looking at it, I just watch them

for their soccer. I don’t look at it

as any political thing because I

don’t like to look at it that way.

I just like to watch them play, but

I feel like if that’s what women’s

soccer wants to do, go for it. Everyone

has their personal preference.

Everything’s really political

now, but I feel like it should be

just about soccer, it doesn’t have

to be about politics.

Kosla: A lot of people look up

to them. If they believe in something,

then other people will believe

in something. Not many

people have as much power as

these women on the team. A lot

of people would just stand around

and not do anything, but since

these women are doing it, it’s giving

the confidence to other people

to get involved.

DiSano: I know they are a part

of that group, and I think that it is

great that they are advocating and

bringing attention to that as well.

Stern: Some of the players being

gay or bisexual, it’s really cool

to see that they use their platform

to inspire everyone they can, not

just male or female. Just because

some teams wouldn’t do it because

they think they would get

criticism, but it’s cool the women’s

team uses their platform.

Allan: Yea, for sure. I know

Rapinoe is a part of it, and I think

it’s great that they’re spreading

awareness for that. That’s also an

important thing: it shouldn’t matter

if you’re a part of the LBTQ

community or not, everyone

should be treated equally.

field as a freshman, all of that

started to go away as her first

year went along as she realized

the players weren’t as scary and

intimidating as they seemed at


“I just think overall I improved

in my confidence,” she

said. “I got stronger. I got faster,

and just through everything. I

think with the teammates everybody

just believes in each

other, and I feel like that really

helps with the coaches and everything.

“When I was a freshman, I

was just really timid, really nervous

to make a mistake. But I

think how I grew my confidence

was just in practice. It’s okay to

try new things. It’s okay to make

mistakes. Because that’s what

makes you better in the game,

and what makes us stronger as

a team. Over the years my confidence

really grew, because to

be completely honest, that was

something that I struggled a lot.

Just like in other sports too. So

lacrosse really helped me grow

in that area.”

While Holohan primarily

played the more of an attacking

midfield position during her

time at Loyola, her club team

would play her all over the field.

At times, she’d even play more

of a defensive position.

That experience will help her

when she gets to Tempe because

the school recruited her as a defensive


“I think it might take a little

bit of time (to get used to) definitely

because all of Loyola season

I played attack,” she said.

“This summer I’ve just been

working hard, getting in shape.

Realistically they can put me

anywhere they need me. If they

need me at midfield, then I’ll go

there. If you need me at attack,

just putting myself in a position.

Working on my stick skills, on

my conditioning just so they can

really put me anywhere.”

Along with the aforementioned

reasons for choosing Arizona

State, academics played

a big role too. This winter she

found out she was admitted to

the school’s honors program,

something she’s proud of.

Holohan plans on studying

criminal justice and criminology

during her college years.

“I want to do more of the forensic

psychology side of something.”

she said. “I just like

how they can predict behaviors,

and they can investigate crime

scenes. And they can tell you so

much without even being with

the person who did it or things

like that. I’m not sure exactly

what I want to do yet with that

major, but just something along

the lines of that really interests


Holohan will make her way

down to Tempe Aug. 17 to start

her college experience and

while she doesn’t have any expectations,

she’s ready for the


“I’m really excited. I think it

should be really fun.”

Girls Soccer

North Shore soccer players react to U.S. World Cup win

The 2019 FIFA Women’s

World Cup has come and

gone, but that doesn’t mean

the impact from the summer’s

games won’t be felt

for months and years to


With the U.S Women’s

National Team winning

the world’s top prize once

again, The PAPER NAME

Sports Intern Drew Favakeh

caught up with area

girls soccer players to see

how they enjoyed the tournament

and what they’ll remember

the most.

What moment do you

remember most from the

United States’ 7-0 run and

eventual fourth World Cup


Emma Weaver (New

Trier): I obviously remember

Lavelle’s goal and

Megan Rapinoe’s penalty

kick, but I remember more

of how they played, their

playing style, not just one

individual player. That’s

what makes them so special

because they’re all so

talented. They play well

together. They anticipate

where the ball is going to be

played and they know their

teammates well enough,

so they’re two steps ahead

of their opponents. Head

coach Jim Burnside always

says I have good field vision,

so I can kind of relate.

Olivia Kosla (Glenbrook

North): There was

a foul in the penalty box

and the refs had to watch it

over and over to see if there

was a penalty. It ended up

being a penalty kick. The

score was 2-0 at the time.

If it was scored, but the

U.S. goalie saved the goal

to keep the 2-0 lead. All my

friends watched it. PK’s are

always supposed to go in,

but the goalie saved it.

Julia DiSano (Glenbrook

South): The moments

that stood out to me

were obviously the two

goals (in the final game).

The first one, being a penalty

kick, part of me felt a

little incomplete. I’m happy

they got the lead, but I

wanted them to earn the

second one amidst play to

feel really like they won the

game in a complete manner.

The second goal was

awesome by Rose Lavelle.

Personally, since I’ve been

a soccer player, I’ve never

wanted to win on just a PK

because the team didn’t

really deserve it. Obviously,

it was a penalty, so

they deserved to get the

kick, but they didn’t really

earn the goal through their

play. For the second goal,

Lavelle had the ball and I

was wondering if she was

going to give it up to one of

her teammates, who were

open. But then, she just

kept on taking it. The shot

was powerful and went

right in the back of the net.

It made me really excited

and at that point, I was like

they ‘they got this in the


Jamie Stern (Highland

Park): I liked when they

played France just because

that was the home country,

but I thought it was cool

anyway because the U.S.

had a bunch of fans.

Ainsley Allan (Lake

Forest): Yes, I did. I

thought it was great to see

the team to win two World

Cups in a row. I was sitting

on my couch watching

the game, and I remember

feeling amazed and happy

for Lavelle because she’s

a younger player, and

honestly, going into the

tournament, I didn’t think

she’d make that big of an

impact. When she started

over Lindsey Horan, it

was surprising because I

thought Horan was the better

player. Her scoring that

goal definitely boosted her


Who is the player you look

up to most on the team?

Weaver: Since I’ve

been really little, it’s been

Alex Morgan; I’ve loved

her. Since newer and

younger players are coming

in, I’ve started to really

love Lavelle. I think she’s

so cute and such a dynamic

player in the midfield,

she’s a playmaker. She’s

the new role model for

me. She’s small, but she’s


Kosla: Julie Ertz because

she’s really aggressive

and always has the

ball out and fights through

it. I wanna be just like her,

so I paid attention to her a

lot to see what to do and

how to improve.

DiSano: It’s not one

particular player, it was

all of them I looked up

to, being that I didn’t just

play in the center, but also

played on the outside. Obviously,

Lavelle went to

the University of Wisconsin,

which I’m going to

be going to next year, so

that was pretty cool. I’m

not going to be playing in

college, but she went there

and so that’s exciting. Toby

Heath and Rapinoe are just

so strong on the outsides.

They’re also women I look

up to.

Stern: I really like Kelly

O’Hara because she’s an

outside back and I’m an

outside back. She’s confident,

but she’s quietly

confident, which I think

is cool because it’s not in

your face. I’m not saying

any of the players are

like that, but I like how

she’s kind of low-key. I’ve

played outside-back most

of my life, but the past

couple years, I didn’t play

center-mid. Sometimes, I

played outside-mid. My

coaches just put me in the

game where they think I

can play.

Allan: I really look up to

Morgan, Rapinoe and Carli

Lloyd because they are captains

of the team. I strive to

be the best leader and love

how they lead the team.

Rapinoe got the Golden

Boot and golden ball, so I

thought that was awesome.

I used to be more shy, but I

am definitely more of a vocal


According to FIFA, this was

the first time the Women’s

World Cup reached One

billion television viewers.

How does the team’s

win elevate the state of

women’s sports?

Weaver: I think it’s

amazing. I think all women’s

soccer, all women’s

sports in general, need to

have the same recognition

as men. I’m happy to be a

part of women’s soccer, to

cheer for women who are

super inspiring. And now

that they’re getting the recognition

they’re getting, I

don’t think it should take a

huge World Cup game for

everybody to watch women’s

sports. If it’s a game

against a random team,

girls should want to watch

that game as well.

Kosla: In the past,

women haven’t thought to

play sports and stuff. They

would just do whatever.

But now, they’re finding

enjoyment in the sport, so

more and more people are

doing it and looking up

to others who want to do

the same thing as them.

The more women who are

playing will lead to more

younger girls to play more


DiSano: It’s definitely

evolved immensely in the

past two years, especially

this world cup. I think more

attention has been drawn

to it in terms of more girls

playing at a younger age.

Social media, the news,

and all of the internet of the

past 20 years, has made it a

lot easier for the women’s

team to become role models,

to become the face of

women’s soccer. It says a

lot that you can get a whole

country behind you, millions

of people watching

you, but I’m not surprised

that they have because of

the characters of women

on the team and the success

they’ve been able to


Stern: I don’t wanna

say I was surprised, but I

think it’s just really nice to

see how into it everyone’s

getting. A few years ago

for the 2015 World Cup,

it didn’t seem as publicly

recognized as this one did.

I was in New York for the

final game and even just

seeing all the billboards of

all the women’s faces literally

everywhere, it was really

inspiring to see how far

we’ve become, especially

for younger athletes, too.

It’s really important to see

representation everywhere.

Allan: When we won the

World Cup in 2014, I think

less people were aware of

it. Now that we won it, a

second time, people are

paying attention to women

more, especially the women’s

national team. This

world isn’t just run by men,

it’s run by women. The

men’s team isn’t nowhere

as good as the women.

With the popularity

growing, there seems

to still between a wide

margin between men and

women’s compensation, do

you think women should be

paid equally?

Weaver: Yea, I mean

this is their job, they work

so hard. This is their job

and they’re all best friends,

which I think is so neat.

Kosla: Personally, I think

that they should be paid the

exact same. They are doing

the exact same thing. The

only difference is that men

and women. But they play

the same, travel, have exhibition,

it’s exactly the same


DiSano: It’s all based

on revenue. Obviously, the

U.S. Women’s National

Team is just as, if not more,

popular than the men’s.

However, on a world scale,

the men’s team brings in

more revenue. For me,

I completely agree with

equal pay as long as they’re

getting equal amount. If

they’re not, then it’s not financially

possible. In terms

of the United States, I’d say

it could be more, so they

should be given what they


Stern: I don’t know all

the specific numbers, but

even beyond regular salary,

with the training and transportation,

there needs to be

a lot of improvement. It’s

kind of obvious. We don’t

know the exact salaries, but

someone got injured on a

field that wasn’t prepared


Allan: When I was

younger, I wanted to become

a professional soccer

player. People around

me and my parents would

say, ‘you don’t get paid as

Going Places

Holohan excited for new

beginnings, challenges

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

Brynn Holohan wanted

to a new experience when

it came to choosing where

she’d play college lacrosse.

The recent Loyola graduate

could have stayed in

the Midwest and gone to

Marquette, joining a handful

of other North Shore

players, or Colorado, the

two other schools that

really recruited her, but

shechose to go down a different


Her decision?

Arizona State University.

At the time Holohan

committed in December

of her sophomore year,

the Sun Devils didn’t actually

have a program.

The school had announced

it would be adding the

women’s lacrosse program

but the team didn’t play

its first game until Feb. 9,


“For me, it was just obviously

the campus, academics

and the weather,”

Holohan said. “I always

knew I wanted to go somewhere

warm. Get away

from the Chicago weather.

But then also, just the

idea of a new program. It

was just something that I

thought that would be so

cool to be a part of something

new. To pave the way

for new teams to come.

For many, including Holohan,

joining a program

that had yet to even play a

game can be a scary proposition,

but it was something

that the four-year

varsity player embraced.

“I just trusted in the

Loyola alumna Brynn Holohan will play college

lacrosse at Arizona State University. 22nd Century Media

coaches and just the overall

athletic department,

and seeing what they did

with other sports,” she

said. “Because of Title IX

they also had to add other

sports. They added men’s

ice hockey, and women’s

triathlon. In triathlon’s first

year they won the national


“Placing my trust in how

they do things at Arizona

State, and just the excellence

that they put into

everything. I thought that

was something that I really

wanted to be a part of.”

Lacrosse, like in the

Midwest, has been rapidly

expanding to the West and

that’s actually something

that helped Holohan realize

she had the capability

of playing collegiately.

Playing club lacrosse in

the offseason, traveling to

various tournaments on the

East Coast and all across

the country really helped

her realize that players in

the Midwest could play

with the ones on the East

Coast. It was her play in

club, especially after her

freshman and sophomore

seasons that helped her realize


“I think just club in general

really helped me know

that it doesn’t matter where

you’re from or when you

started playing,” she said.

“That if you want to play

and you set your mind to

it, you can do whatever

you want.”

As mentioned above,

Holohan was a four-year

varsity member of the

Loyola girls lacrosse program.

Playing freshmen is

something that coach John

Dwyer and his staff are not

hesitant to do, as they keep

multiple freshmen on the

varsity every season.

Doing so allows the

first-year players to gain

valuable experience from

the get-go, something that

helps them as the years go


While Holohan admits

that she was a bit quiet,

scared and hesitant when

she first stepped onto the

NT grad Kaufman witnesses U.S. women’s soccer team

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

New Trier grad Dani Kaufman

had seen the United States Women’s

National Team play a handful

of times, but all had been just

friendlies against nations from

across the world.

The third time though?

That was a game to remember.

Kaufman, along with her family,

were in France for the Women’s

World Cup and got to witness

two games, including the

U.S. National Team’s win over


“I think honestly, when you’re

younger, you kind of think about

it and then you’re like, ‘Well,

I’ve always wanted to go,’ especially

when the last World Cup in

2015 was in Canada,” she said.

“I was like, ‘Well, there goes my

chance to go,’ just because obviously

Canada’s a lot closer than


That all changed, however,

when Kaufman’s dad gave the

Bucknell University rising senior

a call during her fall semester

and asked if she knew what

her plans would be for the summer.

After telling her dad that they

were most likely just going to be

working out to prepare for her senior

season as the Bison’s goalie

and also working at her internship

at Compass Realty, he told

her she may want to let her boss

know she would need some time

off in June because she would be

attending the World Cup.

“I get chocked up about it now

because it has been a dream of

mine to go see the games live,”

she said. “It’s the World Cup,

it only comes every four years,

and it was just like a great moment.

The way my dad delivered

maybe had been a little forward,

but it definitely got me tearing up

a little bit.”

With that, the plans were officially

set when Kaufman was

on Thanksgiving and Christmas

breaks and the family had their

summer vacation in place.

They knew that wanted to see

a U.S. group play game, as well

as another game, so they planned

the trip around those two things.

However, one thing they

weren’t planning on was staying

at the same hotel that the U.S.

team was staying at in before the

game against Sweden.

“Of course, my parents were

like, ‘You got to go say hi, go

ask for pictures,’” Kaufman

said. “Me, the athlete, I’m thinking,

‘Okay, I’m getting ready for

a World Cup game, do I want

some 21-year-old coming up to








82 YEARS on the







me, like bugging me and asking

me questions?’ In my head, I was

like, no, I’m not going up and

asking them anything. “

That, however, didn’t stop


She started a brief conversation

with Adriana French, the

team’s third-string goalie and

thanked her for “holding it down

for the goalkeeper union,” a

bond shared between goalies.

French turned around and said

“How’s your mom with the position?”

to which she replied “You

know, it’s not the most fun during


That set off a brief conversation

about French’s mom as

well, but as Kaufman says: “I

just thought that was a great little

connection. She could not have

been any nicer.”

The trip wasn’t all about the

World Cup though. The family

used it as a way to explore

France together. With 2019 being

the 75th anniversary of D-

Day, the Kaufmans were able to

see Normandy, which was a special

occasion for them because

both of Kaufman’s grandpas had

been in the military during World

War II. One joined the Air Force

and the other the Army. While

neither was ever deployed, for

Kaufman, she “felt very ingrained

with our own American

history as well as with my own

grandpas’ histories.”

Since the family came back

June 26th, they were only able

to see one knockout stage game,

a round of 16 game between

Sweden and Canada. That meant

that they’d watch the run to the

championship from the comfort

of their own home.

Or in this case, the comfort of

Lincoln Park with thousands of

their new friends.

“It was a great atmosphere,”

she said. “I was a little on the

edge of my seat during the game

but it was ... I mean, US soccer

put on a great event and they

have a screen and they had ... it

felt like you were there without

being there just because everyone

was cheering, everyone was

standing up, everyone was just

happy to watch a soccer game.

“And especially after they

won, everyone stayed to watch

the trophy ceremony. It was just

a cool experience to get to see

the door to open up another one,”

she said. “So I’m interested to

see how it goes and what new

experiences I get to have without

soccer, and what experiences

that, in my career, competitively

Jeffrey’s pitching masterpiece leads Waves to win over Loyola

3. Charlie Acri. The

Wilmette Wave

drove in both

runs in a 2-0 win

over Loyola.

For a pitcher, getting

early run support is really

all he or she needs sometimes

in a big game.

The Wilmette Waves

got pitcher Ryan Jeffrey

all the support he needed

in the first inning when

two runners crossed the

plate en route to a 2-0

Connie Mack League win

over host Loyola July 9 at

Loyola’s Munz Campus in


“Having that lead feels

good because you know you

can go out there and pound

it and play loose,” Jeffrey

said. “It’s good to know that

your team has your back at

the plate as well.”

After seeing two of

the first three batters get

out via strikeout and flyout,

the Waves got three

consecutive baserunners,

culminating in a two-run

single by Charlie Acri that

drove in Alex Calarco and

Alex Mendes.

Those two runs would

be all Jeffrey would need.

The rising senior would

have a no-hitter through

five innings, before allowing

a hit in each of the

sixth and seventh innings,

en route to a complete

game, two-hit shutout with

eight strikeouts.

“A lot of what was

working for me was the

offspeed pitches, mixing

in the curve for a strike

early in the count and the

slider toward the end, but

it was the fastball mostly,”

Jeffrey said. “A lot of what

I’ve been working on is

consistency with the fastball

low in the zone and

the curveball for a strike.”

Jack Bosak broke up the

no-hitter in the sixth inning

with a single up the

middle, while Edward Mahoney

had the Ramblers’

other hit, a double, with

two outs in the bottom of

the seven inning.

The win extends the

Waves’ winning streak

to 12, including a tournament

win over the weekend

where the Waves had

to win double headers on

three consecutive days to

win the title.

The win is also Wilmette’s

seventh straight in

Connie Mack League play,

giving the squad an impressive

12-3 record. The

Waves’ last Connie Mack

loss was to Niles North in

June 27.

“We’re really playing

loose and having a lot of

fun out there,” Jeffrey said.

“You know, it’s trusting

ourselves. Our bats have

been really good lately

and all our arms are throwing

strikes and giving us a

chance to win every day.”

After not getting much

playing time during the

high school season, Jeffrey

has seen his playing time

increase during the spring

season. With that, he’s also

seen a rise in performance

as well.

“For me, I feel so much

more confident at the

plate,” he said. “Driving

the ball to left field, putting

the ball opposite field has

been big too.”

The loss to Wilmette

concluded a tough day for

the Ramblers, who earlier

had dropped a Connie

Mack League game to

Maine West. After starting

league play 8-3, the Ramblers

have now dropped

three in a row and come

into the last two days of

league play tied for the

Red Division lead at 8-6.

The Ramblers end regular

season play with games

against Niles North, while

the Waves finish with

Maine West. Connie Mack

playoff action takes place

next week, with pool play

set for Monday and Tuesday

and the championship

on Wednesday.
