BBQ for the brave

Widows of officers

killed in line of duty

receive checks

Mary Compton

Freelance Reporter

It was no coincidence

that the eighth annual

Midwest BBQ for the

Brave was held just days

after the 18th anniversary

of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Hundreds of attendees

showed up Friday, Sept.

13, at CD&ME to support

injured veterans and widows

of police officers who

were killed in the line of

duty.

“I came into this beautiful

hall tonight and

thought, ‘Americans are

the best,’” said Frank

Siller, chairman and CEO

of the Stephen Siller Tunnel

to Towers Foundation.

“We really care.”

Siller’s foundation was

named after his brother, a

Fire Department of New

York firefighter killed on

9/11. Siller travels all over

the United States to present

checks to widows of

fallen officers, and Friday

night was no exception.

Becki Keltner, whose

husband, McHenry County

Deputy Sheriff Jacob

Keltner, was killed while

trying to serve a warrant,

was one of two check recipients

at the event, along

with Amanda Chisum,

whose husband, Troy

Chisum, was killed while

responding to a domestic

violence call. Both families

have young children.

Another project the

Stephen Siller Tunnel to

Towers Foundation is involved

with is presenting

smart homes to injured

war veterans. U.S. Army

Spc. Kevin Trimble, a

Tunnel to Towers smart

amputee, flew in from

Frankfort resident finalist for national award

Sean Hastings

Contributing Editor

Dale Taylor, a broker associate

with RE/MAX 10

in New Lenox, has spent

years helping homeless

men in the southside.

Taylor is the site manager

for the shelter located

at Faith Lutheran Church,

18645 Dixie Highway,

Homewood. In recent

years, Taylor’s efforts

in the organization have

been geared toward only

me, but has done previous

work with women and

children.

He has been the site

manager there since 2007

and began volunteering

around 2005. The organization

Taylor is a part of

is called South Suburban

Public Action to Deliver

Shelter, which is a nonprofit

organization that

assists homeless people

in the Chicago southland

region.

Taylor said it is easy

to fill the 6-11 p.m. shift

with volunteers at the

shelter, but it is overnight

shift — 11 p.m.-3 a.m. and

3-7 a.m. that makes things

tough. So, Taylor has spent

every Monday for over 10

years staying at the shelter

overnight.

And all of his dedication

to helping out the homeless

men in the area has

made him a finalist for the

National Association of

Realtors Good Neighbor

Award. The award honors

realtors who have made

a positive impact on their

communities through extraordinary

volunteer service.

Taylor serves on the

Dale Taylor (middle) poses for a photo with SSPADS Philanthropy Manager Rohit

D’Souza and SSPADS Board Member Tahtia K. Smalling. Photo Submitted

Board of Directors for

SSPADS, as well as distributing

food, cleaning,

fundraising and all other

responsibilities of the

program at his site. He

has raised over $300,000

since his involvement with

SSPADS began.

The shelter Taylor manages

holds 30-35 people.

When the weather is decent,

the numbers are not

that high, but when but

when it changes is when

they see 30-35 men, he

said.

So how does a realtor in

New Lenox and a resident

of Frankfort end up volunteering

in a homeless shelter

in Homewood?

It is all about planting

those “good seeds,” he

said.

“The best way I can describe

it is that it is like

a calling,” Taylor said.

“What you give of yourself

— there is an old saying:

‘no good deed goes

unpunished.’ I’ve had my

share of being punished

for the good deeds that I

do. It’s a natural thing that

happens because the people

that come to the shelter,

they are going to the

test and trials of life.

“It has caused me to be

really sensitive to what

they are going through. I

pray a lot and seek divine

guidance. Any good deed

you do, it’s about planting

good seeds. Eventually

those good seeds that are

planted they will do some

good things.”

In getting the men food

each Monday, Taylor has

approximately five different

food teams that bring

in food every Monday of

the month — one group

specified to each of the

four Mondays. He is hoping

to find a team that will

manage the rare fifth Monday

of some months.

Every Monday — at the

very least — Taylor sees

these men at their worst as

he tries to help them out.

But he has encountered

people in public that he

knew from the shelter and

it is touching, he said.

One man he saw was

a single dad raising his

children who at one point,

were staying in a different

shelter each night.

“I would marvel at him.

He would get those kids

up every morning to go

to school,” Taylor said.

“They went to school and

no one knew that they

were experiencing homelessness.”

And Taylor ran into him

at the DMV in Chicago

Heights.

“He tells me, ‘guess

what?’ I finally got an

apartment. My family can

live in one place,’” Taylor

said. “Can you imagine

every night your children

are sleeping in a different

location and you have

to get them up, get them

to school and get them to

function while you’re going

through all these temporary

circumstances. To

keep them encouraged and

hopeful it’s what I call a

divine calling to do that.”

To make more stories

like this happen, Taylor

is always looking to find

fundraising efforts so the

organization can continue

to provide the services

they do.

The organization receives

grants from the

State, but only issue with

that is the amount of time

they have to wait to actually

receive some of these

large grants. That is why

Taylor tries to find more

sustainable fundraising efforts.

Which is what makes the

Good Neighbors Award

special.

The top five finalists

will each receive $10,000

to donate into their organization

and the top three

will also receive an extra

$1,250, $1,500 and $2,500,

respectively. The 6-10 vote

getters will receive $2,500

for their contributions to

their organizations.

Voting for the Good

Neighbors award started

Aug. 28 and lasts through

midnight on Sept. 28.

will be announced Oct. 2.

Frankfort Aldi reopens with

expanded produce section

Nuria Mathog, Editor

When the newly remodeled

Aldi store in Frankfort

opened its doors to

the public on Thursday,

Sept. 12, the line of shoppers

was so long that it

stretched around the side

of the building and continued

across the parking lot.

The store’s grand reopening

was part of a

company-wide initiative

to update Aldi locations

across the country with

an expanded selection of

fresh produce. The first

100 shoppers at the Frankfort

location received gift

cards to the store, and customers

were also invited to

enter a sweepstakes for a

year’s supply of produce.

The Frankfort store,

which opened in 2006,

closed for five weeks while

an approximately 2,400

square foot expansion was

added to the facility, Aldi

Divisional Vice President

Heather Moore said.

‘What the customers are

going to see when they

come in is it’s brighter, it’s

bigger,” she said. “We’ve

added about 350 new

items, so our product line

has increased by 20 percent.

Our fresh category

has increased by 40 percent,

so that’s the biggest

one. Our customers are

going to come in and see

a lot of fresh, a lot of organic,

a lot of healthy onthe-go

options at the same

great prices they’ve come

to know.”

Among the new items

featured at the store are

chicken salads, mini hummus

kits and prepared

meals such as a gourmet

chicken pot pie.

With the expansion, the

store has been able to add

eight new staff members,

Moore added.

“It’s still the same staff

that they’ve gotten over

the years, but we do have

some new faces because of

the remodel,” she said.

Jessica Dabrowski, who

has been the manager of

the Frankfort Aldi’s for the

past three years, said she

was “thrilled” about the

changes to the store.

“I’m excited about this

for our Frankfort people,”

she said. “They will eat

this up, they will devour

this. The store is in good

shape. It’s beautiful, great

prices. So, I’m very excited.”

in their backyard to raise

money for Stephen Siller

event,” Siller said. “If

they’re not putting it on

for the veterans, they

wouldn’t have had this

participation. Everyone

came out tonight because

they want to take care of

America’s greatest.”

While south suburban

residents and the

guests mingled, former

New Lenox resident and

Providence Catholic High

School alumnus Israel Del

Toro told his story.

“It’s truly an honor to

be here,” said Del Toro,

a U.S. Air Force Master

Sergeant who was injured

in Afghanistan in 2005.

“As a service member,

it’s our job to take care of

those who have fallen behind

us. Even though you

may never see the benefits

of what you do, you take

care of your teammates.”

Del Toro explained he

sustained burns over most

of his body, adding, “After

being injured, a lot

of us can’t work again.

We depend on our loved

ones.”

previous 24 hours with

Del Toro. The pair visited

a school in Joliet, where

Del Toro spoke to students.

“I’m very blessed to

have a good friend in Israel,”

Baldermann said.

“He’s an inspiration to all

of us. He is a true patriot

and family man. What this

BBQ for the Brave puts

together, it’s amazing. A

lot of people talk; very

few people act. Today

is about people who are

making a difference.”

As he finished his

speech, Del Toro told the

crowd, “I’m not a hero, I

just survived.”

State rep’s seminar gives tips

on avoiding identity theft

Nuria Mathog, Editor

Being targeted for identity

theft is an unfortunately

all-too-common situation,

but State Rep. Margo

McDermed (R-Mokena) is

working to prevent residents

from becoming

future victims by giving

them tools and information

to keep their identity

safe.

On Sept. 10, about a

dozen Lincoln-Way area

residents attended a seminar

hosted by McDermed

at the Frankfort Public Library

District that provided

an overview of different

types of identity theft

and ways to safeguard

their personal information.

“This is one of the presentations

that our staff

does all throughout the

state to try to educate Illinois

consumers and try

keep us safe from the

predators that are on our

phones, on our computers,

on our landlines and

everywhere,” McDermed

said. Her office is also

scheduled to host a free

shredding event and food

drive from 10-11 a.m. Saturday,

Sept. 21, at 11032

W. Lincoln Highway in

Frankfort.

Samantha Alonso, who

handles constituent affairs

for the Illinois Office of

the Comptroller, said one

of the most common methods

of committing identity

theft is through imposter

scams, which involve an

individual pretending to

represent the IRS or another

agency or company

to collect money from an

unsuspecting victim. Oth-

6

er known ways of stealing

personal data include using

credit card skimmers

at pumps at the gas station

and stealing credit card information

saved on an online

profile, she said.

Alonso urged seniors

who suspected that they

may be targets for identity

theft to ask questions

about why they needed to

give personal information

out over the phone.

“If they’re a legitimate

company, they will not

pressure you to give such

information,” Alonso said.

“If anyone ever calls you,

whether it’s AT&T, your

hospital, insurance and so

on and so forth, and they

ask you for your social security

number, we recommend

you ask these questions

first: Why do you

need my number? How

will it be used? What will

happen if I refuse to give

it to you, and can I provide

you with just the last four

digits? If they’re a legit

company and just want to

verify your information,

this should be more than

helpful for them.”

According to Alonso,

in 2017, one in every 15

American adults was an

identity theft victim and

$905 million was stolen

as a result of identity theft.

Alonso said children are

particularly susceptible

to having their identity

stolen: Thirty-nine percent

of children have their

identity stolen every year

in the U.S., and of that figure,

60 percent have their

identity stolen by family

or friends.

“Recently, I had a constituent

that told me that

their older sister stole their

identity when they were a

child,” Alonso said. “She

bought a car when she was

in high school. She didn’t

have the credit, so she borrowed

her younger sister’s

credit. So, therefore it’s

very important that if you

are the parent of a child to

be very careful with that

information.”

Alonso recommended

that seniors leave their social

security card at home

or at a safe location to

prevent identity theft in

the event that their wallet

is stolen. Other methods

residents can use to protect

personal data include

shredding documents,

using secure WiFi and

changing login information

frequently, she said.

Cathy Hambric, of Mokena,

said she decided to

attend the event with fellow

Mokena resident Sharon

Daley after reading

about it in the newspaper.

“Identity theft is very

scary, and I’ve heard a

lot of people have gone

through this, where they

call and say that a relative

of yours is in jail or something

... I’ve known quite

a few people,” Hambric

said. “And I’ve noticed

that places try to help

them. My kid works at

Walgreens and somebody

came in Walgreens and

was saying they needed

Western Union to send

overseas somewhere, and

they questioned them, and

they discouraged them

from doing it. So, that’s a

good thing.”

LWE grad’s organization to

debut ‘Remember Me’ walk

6

Sean Hastings

Contributing Editor

ForeverU’s “Remember

Me” walk on Saturday,

Sept. 21 in the New Lenox

Village Commons, 1 Veterans

Parkway, is a new

community walk to remember

children who lost

their lives too early.

ForeverU is a 501(c)(3)

youth development organization

that is empowering

youth to overcome adversity

through personal development

programs that

equip them to face life’s

greatest challenges and obstacles.

Ryan Hesslau, founder

and executive director

of ForeverU, and former

Lincoln-Way East student,

said the catalyst for the

walk came from wanting

to create a place where

families can come together

to remember and celebrate

the lives of the children

they, or other people have

lost. His motivation to start

ForeverU came when he

researched stories of students

his age when he was

in high school who had

commit suicide. He wanted

to be able find a solution

to ensure the youth who

were struggling had the resilience

to keep living, the

website states.

“Through our time we

have worked a lot with

families that have lost their

child whether it was suicide,

a sickness or a tragic

accident,” Hesslau said.

“One of my questions has

been ‘what can we do as a

community to support you

and what kind of way can

we find a level of purpose?’

The walk is also a way

for ForeverU to spread

awareness of local resources

to the youth and

families.

“We can create a space

and see the support I think

it is a really powerful

thing,” Hesslau said. “My

vision is to create a space

where we as a community,

whether we lost one or not,

can lean in together. That is

really the mission behind

this. It is really tough stuff.

Nowadays we need those

frequent opportunities to

lean in together.”

The walk is free, though

sign up is encouraged prior,

but can be done the day

of. Donations of $5 or $10

would also be appreciated,

but not required. When

people sign up online, or

in person, they have the

option to give the name

of the person they will be

walking for and if they are

comfortable with the name

being recognized at the

walk. It is not required to

give a name.

Hesslau said he and his

team are not sure how the

names will be recognized,

but is looking to find a

unique way to do so.

Hesslau understands the

sensitivity of the topic and

that people may be in different

stages of their grief,

but encourages people to

come out if they are up

for it, as it can be a way

to show parents who lost

a child that they are not

alone.

“We encourage them

to be part of this moving

event,” Hesslau said. “We

don’t know what is going

to happen. There might be

20 people, or there could be

hundreds. We can remind

families there are people

out there that want to help.

People need people is what

we believe. But if you think

it is too much for you just

know that there is a community

thinking of you.”

The walk will also feature

different partners including

Never Walk Alone

Recovery, Keys to Freedom

Foundation, Miller

Counseling and Associates

and more.

To be featured as an

event partner, email info@

foreverumovement.org.

Hesslau also noted that

ForeverU is not a medical

professional group, but are

able to make people feel

supported.

Another reason what

made New Lenox the perfect

spot to debut the ‘Remember

Me’ walk, which

Hesslau hopes can turn

into a annual event, is ForeverU’s

plans to open a

community empowerment

center in New Lenox.

“This walk can be a

place to bring people together

and also bring attention

to our programs for

grades 7-12 students,” he

said. “And we can ignite

a new conversation with

what our vision is to the

community.”

officer during an Aug. 30

traffic stop, according to

the Frankfort Police Department.

Adriene M. Mays, 51,

of 8660 S. 86th Ave. in

Justice, was charged with

felony obstruction of justice

and cited for allegedly

driving with a suspended

license.

Frankfort Deputy Police

Chief Kevin Keegan said

an officer was dispatched

to the area of La Grange

Road and Nebraska Street

following a report of a

reckless driver who had

stopped on the side of the

road. The officer located

a gray 2012 Ford Fusion

with heavy front end damage

and pulled behind the

vehicle, activating the

police car’s emergency

lights.

The driver reportedly

told the officer an unknown

vehicle had collided

with her vehicle and

fled the scene, adding she

was heading to work and

did not recall where the

crash had taken place.

The officer ran the vehicle’s

registration and

discovered the vehicle’s

registered owner, Mays,

had driving privileges

suspended for excessive

moving violations within a

12-month period, Keegan

said.

The driver allegedly refused

to identify herself to

the officer or provide any

type of identification, and

when the officer asked if

she was Mays, the driver

reportedly replied that she

was not and would not

identify herself any further.

Keegan said the driver

later provided a false

name and date of birth before

eventually identifying

herself as Mays after further

investigation.

It was determined no

crash had occurred within

the Frankfort Police Department’s

jurisdiction and

the damage to the vehicle

was from a prior accident,

Keegan said.

Sept. 7

• Joshua J. Soliday, 30, of

7622 W. Hickory Creek

Drive in Frankfort, was

cited for alleged DUI, aggravated

attempted fleeing,

speeding, improper

lighting and driving in the

wrong lane following a

traffic stop on River Road.

According to Keegan, an

officer conducting static

radar on Lincoln Highway

at Windy Hill observed a

blue Dodge pickup pass

by his location traveling

eastbound at 81 miles per

hour in a 45 mile per hour

zone. The officer pulled

out after the vehicle and

observed a dust cloud

overhanging the roadway

as he approached River

Road. When the officer

turned onto River Road,

he could see the vehicle’s

taillights and observed

that the vehicle was still

traveling at a high rate

of speed on a residential

street, Keegan said. The

driver allegedly turned

the vehicle lights off to

avoid further detection

before eventually driving

into a dead end street,

where the officer was able

to approach the vehicle.

The driver, identified as

Soliday, reportedly had

bloodshot and glassy eyes

and a strong odor of alcohol

coming from his

breath. Keegan said Soliday

failed sobriety testing

and was taken into police

custody.

• An unsecured vehicle reportedly

was stolen from

a driveway in the 23000

block of Folkestone Way,

vehicle reportedly

was entered with no items

during the past two weeks

from a construction site in

the 21200 block of Harlem

block of Dungarvan Road,

and an additional vehicle

reportedly was entered

with no items taken.

Sept. 4

• A flatbed trailer reportedly

was stolen from a

business parking lot in the

20000 block of La Grange

Road.

Sept. 3

• Evelyn Theodorou, 38,

of 685 Charlotte Court in

New Lenox, was charged

with two Class 4 felony

charges of possession of a

controlled substance and

one class A misdemeanor

charge of possession of

drug paraphernalia. According

to Keegan, an officer

observed a blue 2017

Toyota RAV 4 parked at

the ATM of a bank in the

9700 block of West Lincoln

Highway and could

see the drive had fallen

asleep. The driver made

contact with the driver,

identified as Theodorou,

and observed a small

clear bag containing a

white powdery substance,

Keegan said. Theodorou

reportedly confirmed the

package contained cocaine

and handed the officer a

subsequent package of

cocaine. A search of the

vehicle allegedly revealed

2.3 grams of cocaine, .3

grams of crack cocaine, .5

grams of cannabis, various

drug paraphernalia, a

bottle containing Vynanse

6

pills, a bottle containing

10 milligrams of Hydrocodone

pills and two milligrams

of Alprazolam pills,

a bottle containing 30 milligrams

of amphetamine

pills, a bottle containing

100 milligrams of Nitrofurantoin

pills, a bottle

Aug. 26

• Will County Sheriff’s

Office deputies were dispatched

to the area of West

Laraway Road and South

Scheer Road in response to

an unoccupied vehicle on

the roadway. Upon arrival,

deputies found a 2016

Lincoln MKZ with the

ignition running, which

was sitting perpendicular

to Laraway Road and had

its front tires on the shoulder

and its rear tires in the

ditch. An inquiry of the vehicle

reportedly revealed

that it had been stolen

from the Carol Stream jurisdiction.

Aug. 13

• A Craftsman lawn mower

reportedly was taken from

a detached garage in the

9200 block of West Franklin

Avenue.

Got pot? In Mokena

Sale and possession of

recreational marijuana was

approved by Illinois lawmakers

earlier this year, but

interested customers may

need to look outside of Mokena.

The Mokena Village

Board discussed the matter

during work session Sept.

9 and voiced agreement

regarding not allowing the

sale of recreational marijuana

in town.

Trustee Joseph Siwinski

was absent.

During the discussion,

Village Administrator John

Tomasoski recapped that,

effective Jan. 1, 2020, the

Cannabis Regulation and

Tax Act legalizes recreational

use of marijuana.

As such, in Illinois, residents

21 years or older will

be able to: possess up to 30

grams of marijuana or 500

milligrams of THC content

of edible products; and use

marijuana in most private

residences and campus

lounges. The act also allows

for the expungement

of many prior convictions

of marijuana possession.

Tomasoski added,

though, that recreational

consumption will be prohibited

in any public place.

He also noted that use of

marijuana is still federally

illegal.

“But federal law enforcement

has not prosecuted

businesses complying with

State programs,” he said.

Carly Styka

Editorial Intern

I

always get a weird

and excited feeling

when starting a new

job. Weird because I don’t

know what to expect, and

excited because I’m starting

a new chapter in my

life. This new chapter for

me is an intern position

at The Frankfort Station.

I am eager to put my

journalism training into

practice.

Speaking of my journalism

training, I am in

my final year at Lewis

University. When I first

started college, I wasn’t

entirely sure what I wanted

to study. Ever since I

was little, I liked reading

and writing, but I also had

an interest in psychology

and music. After taking a

few psychology courses

at Joliet Junior College,

I realized that I probably

wouldn’t make a good

therapist. I also didn’t

want to spend eight years

in college.

I transferred to Lewis

during my junior year and

decided to pursue journalism.

This decision was

mostly motivated by my

love of writing. I enjoy articulating

my perspective

through words. Words are

powerful and should be

chosen carefully. They can

make a simple statement

10 times more impactful.

The challenge of selecting

the right words is something

I embrace.

Besides the journalism

program, what initially

attracted me to Lewis

was its location and small

class sizes. I grew up in

Lemont and I’ve lived in

the suburbs my whole life,

so I wanted to stay in this

region. The small class

sizes meant I would be

able to really get to know

my professors and receive

better help. Lewis has a

very close-knit feeling

because of this.

I love that journalism

allows me to be outspoken

on topics I care about. I’m

currently putting this into

practice as the opinions

editor of The Flyer, the

student newspaper at

Lewis. When two of

my professors asked if I

wanted to join the paper,

I knew I couldn’t say no.

This position allowed me

to hone my writing and

journalism skills, but more

importantly, it introduced

me to a great group of

students and professors.

The Flyer staff is one big

family that I’m glad to be

a part of.

My end goal is to write

for a major newspaper or

magazine. I’m very passionate

about music and

movies and would love to

review them for a living.

I try to attend as many

concerts as I can.

One thing I have been

trying to do more of is

travelling. I love seeing

new places and being inspired

by seeing what the

rest of the world is like.

Working part time and being

in school doesn’t lend

me much free time, but I

would love to travel outside

the country someday.

I hope this internship allows

me to have a positive

effect on the communities

I’m reporting for. I look

forward to meeting new

people and being put in

different environments.

“Please feel to stop by our memorial which

contains a piece of the World Trade Center.

If you cannot, please devote some time out

of your day to reflect on what occurred 18

years ago and how the World has since

been changed. Please bring along those

that may have been too young to have

experienced the events that day in order to

help explain the sacrifices that were made

by everyone on 9/11. ‘Never Forget’”

From Page 16

dent and self-published

author Donna Malacina

has become a semifinalist

in the Soon to Be Famous

Illinois Authors Project

with her book “Twisted

Secrets.”

Malacina is one of 10

semi-finalists in the Adult

Fiction category to gain

recognition through the

project. “Twisted Secrets”

is her third in a series of

adult fiction novels. The

winner has not yet been

announced for the competition,

but Malacina is

hopeful.

“I was so surprised to

hear the news,” Malacina

said. “It felt great! If I do

end up winning, which

would be really nice, I’ll

fly back up to Illinois.”

Though Malacina has

now taken up residence

in Naples, Florida, to focus

on writing, her home

library is still listed as

Lockport. Even though

one of the requirements of

the competition is to be an

Illinois resident, Malacina

still qualifies, as she was a

resident when she submitted

her work.

Should Malacina win

the competition, she will

be awarded a cash prize,

increased recognition, the

opportunity to compete

in the national Indie Author

Project competition

and more opportunities to

work with traditional publishers.

In addition, participating

libraries would

give her the opportunity

to promote her book and

dispense print copies.

Frankfort church’s Oktoberfest celebrates German culture

Amanda Del Buono

Freelance Reporter

4

The coming of fall brings with

it Oktoberfests of all sorts. Kicking

off these celebrations this

year, Amazing Love Lutheran

Church opened the doors to its

annual Oktoberfest to the community

on Saturday, Sept. 14.

From sauerkraut to lederhosen,

this Oktoberfest had everything

except alcohol. The event

included live music from a traditional

German band, a large

spread of German food, a photo

booth, games and raffles.

As a WELS, or Wisconsin

Evangelical Lutheran Synod

church, Amazing Love has German

roots at its core, and has

celebrated Oktoberfest for many

years, welcoming all its members

and their families regardless

of heritage, said Pastor Dustin

Blumer.

This year, Amazing Love decided

to use the event as an opportunity

to reach out to the community

and bring non-members

in with a fun celebration, said

Ralph Koelling, church member

and volunteer co-organizer

of the event, along with Judy

Campbell, another church member

and volunteer.

“We did this as an outreach to

get people in who are looking

for answers with God’s word,”

Koelling said. “We’ve done it

before within the church, so we

really went all out for it this

year.”

Pastor Dustin Blumer said that

Outside the church, (left to right) Vincent Loosmore, of Crete;

Ayden Lockwood, of Homewood; Harper Brands, of Glen Ellyn; and

Bella Blumer, of Joliet, play a beanbag toss game.

the church tries to be a part of the

community as much as possible,

and thus, wanted to welcome the

community to a celebration.

“We believe that a church

should be help and light in the

community,” he said. “With our

representation of God and his

love, we want to help people find

his love, and a celebration is a

great way to do that. So, any and

all are welcome today.”

Campbell said that the church

participates in many fundraising

efforts and community events.

“We’re a very communitybased

church,” she said.

Among those present at this

year’s event was Debbie Stamp,

Homewood resident and member

of the church. Stamp brought

along five of her grandchildren

to the event, who yelled “oye”

along to the tradition German

music while they snacked on

cookies and other treats and sat

with their grandmother.

“I know Judy and Ralph, and

I helped with the event, and I

just help at the church a lot,” she

said. “My husband and I help

at the church a lot, and we do it

from the heart.”

The event also proved a great

opportunity for new church

members to get to know the

church and meet other members.

“I just made a change in my

church home,” said Marianne

Uthe, a Manhattan resident who

joined the church only a few

weeks ago.

Uthe was among those looking

to use the event to meet her

fellow church members. She

said that she had been able to

meet new people, and enjoyed

Frankfort artists’ work featured at art fair

Submitted by Park Forest

Art Fair

Pictured is “Garden Queen,” a painting created by

Frankfort artist Margi Hafer, whose work will be

showcased at the Park Forest Art Fair the weekend of

Saturday, Sept. 21. Photos submitted

Boasting a rich history

and wealth of gifted artists,

along with status as

one of the Southland’s

most valued annual treasures,

the Park Forest Art

Fair, sponsored by Tall

Grass Arts Association, in

September celebrates its

64th year from 10 a.m.-5

p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21,

and Sunday, Sept. 22, in

downtown Park Forest on

the Village Green.

The artists hail from all

over the metropolitan area.

This year TGAA is pleased

to introduce 23 new artists,

as well as many returning

artists. One of the new artists

is Catherine Trezek of

Mokena. Certainly familiar

to south suburban art

lovers will be Frankfort

residents Margi Hafer,

Richard Schmidt and Mary

Ann Trzyna.

Catherine Trezek is an

oil painter. She studied at

the Art Institute of Chicago

and Oxbow School

of Art in Michigan. Trezek

says she tries to express

the relationship between

love and nature in her art.

Her technique includes

soft brush strokes and colors

of light to invoke the

feelings of love.

Hafer is a multi-media

artist currently working

predominantly in watercolor,

acrylics and mixed

media collage. She explains,

“I have always experimented

in new media

techniques, stretching my

experience as an artist. My

work often has a spiritual

quality that relates to my

inner feelings as a woman

with the roles of daughter,

sister, wife, mother of four

and grandmother of nine,

feeding my visions and energizing

my spirit.”

Schmidt has been exhibiting

in the Park Forest Art

Fair and Tall Grass Gallery

since 1990. He works in

oils and watercolors and

interprets the colors and

light using a wet on wet

technique and a modified

pointillism style. His

work is representational

with a slight impressionistic

edge.

Trzyna has been exhibiting

in the Park Forest Art

Fair for approximately 11

years. One of the first places

she publicly showed

her art was the Tall Grass

Arts Association Gallery.

Most of her current work

is landscape and still life

paintings in pastel or oil.

Her style is realistic and

one of her most recent

Tall Grass exhibit was an

exhibit of highly realistic

still lifes.

For four years in a row,

the Park Forest Art Fair has

won the national “America’s

Best Art Fair Awards”

competition sponsored by

ArtFairCalendar.com, the

No. 1 website for art fair

event listings. The survey

recognized Park Forest

Art Fair as one of the best

small, juried, fine art fairs

in the country.

“This is the second oldest

juried art fair in the

Chicagoland region and

it has maintained its quality

over the years,” event

Chairwoman Janet Muchnik

said.

Muchnik emphasized

Frankfort artist Richard Schmidt, who works with oils and watercolors, painted the

pictured image, “Pete’s Curiosity.” His work will also be on display at the Park Forest

Art Fair.

Frankfort artist Mary Ann Trzyna, whose work can be seen at the Park Forest Art Fair,

created this pastel image of a lake horizon.

the event always attracts

a variety of talents, some

new artists and many who

have exhibited continuously

for nearly four decades.

“Fair visitors have a tradition

here of talking with

the artists and in fact, the

artists expect people to

stop by and chat,” she said.

The eclectic nature of

the fair is quickly visible

to visitors who will

see ceramics, etchings,

sculpture, photographs,

paintings in many media,

digital art works, jewelry

featuring original elements

and hand-blown glass.

A special feature of the

fair is the Kids Art Alley,

which offers a range of

hands-on art activities to

delight the younger set, including

the almost legendary

Children’s Art Contest.

Food vendors will be

on site including Poppin’

Plates, Exquisite Pound

Cakes, Flaming Hotties,

Terrell’s BBQ and Southland

Caterers.

The acclaimed Tall

Grass Arts Association

Gallery, 367 Artists Walk

in Downtown, will be

open during the fair with a

traditional summer exhibit

of works by gallery artists.

More information is online

at tallgrassarts.org, on

the Tall Grass Facebook

page and by calling the

gallery, (708) 748-3377.

The Dish

Barraco’s thrives in Orland Park, six other locations while rooted in family

Business keeps

drawing customers with

large menu, homey

atmosphere

Thomas Czaja, Senior Editor

After a visit to Barraco’s in

Orland Park, it is evident that the

business was started, has grown

and continues to operate with

family at is core.

A variety of family photos

adorning the walls of the establishment

to homemade family

recipes all over the menu have

helped the business become

what it is today, according to coowner

Francesca Aye, a member

of the Barraco clan.

Barraco’s originally was started

in 1980 in Evergreen Park

by Aye’s grandparents, Vito and

Paulina. Like many, they moved

to the United States with nothing.

Vito took factory jobs, while

Paulina worked as a seamstress.

But their dream was to own

and operate a restaurant, so they

took a leap of faith in starting

that with, aptly, a place bearing

their surname, showcasing the

importance of family.

“It’s her sauce, her pastas,

her everything,” Aye said of the

menu coming directly from her

grandmother.

The business did so well that

it has expanded into its seven locations:

Evergreen Park, Orland

Park, Crestwood, Chicago, Burbank,

Orland Hills and Beverly.

Vito died in 2009, but Paulina,

now 85, still makes sure to stay

involved.

“She’ll still go to the stores

and tell everyone a piece of

her mind, what they are doing

wrong, if they are doing something

right,” Aye said.

Aye has grown up with the

business. She started working

there around age 16 and helped

out even prior to that. A number

of her family members remain

involved, and they make sure

they are all stationed among the

different locations to monitor

things and maintain quality.

The menu is large, filled with

everything from dinner specials

to a plethora of appetizers, soups

and salads, sandwiches, burgers,

a create-your-own pasta section,

pasta specialties, dinner specialties,

seafood specialties, pizza,

and dessert.

A popular choice for sandwiches

is the Freddy sandwich

($11.50), which is an Italian sausage

patty with green peppers,

red sauce and mozzarella cheese.

The family has consistently

tweaked and updated the menu

since 1980 to keep up with what

customers want.

Some of the newer selections

are under the Mama Barraco’s

Creations portion of the

menu, such as the Joey’s pasta

($19.25), a dish with Asiago

cheese-stuffed gnocchi tossed

in Alfredo sauce, featuring prosciutto

and peas.

With the create-your-pasta,

guests first choose from eight

different kinds of pasta before

selecting their sauces, vegetables

and any possible side dishes.

“It’s a nice way to go about

your meal and nice option if you

can’t decide what you want,”

Aye said of the create-your-own

pasta.

In terms of what separates

Barraco’s from other Italian restaurants

and defines their offerings,

Aye said it all goes back to

the homemade recipes they still

enjoy eating at their own family

functions.

“It’s not generic,” Aye said.

“It’s real, and you can tell what

you are eating is not mass-produced,

not frozen. We make all

our stuff fresh every day and

stand by that.

“All our breading, we do that

ourselves. We pick up our meatballs

from Evergreen Park. They

are personally made there, with

my grandma and aunt always

watching, tasting, making sure

everything is always how it is

supposed to be.”

Another key staple for any

The Barraco’s 12-inch thin-crust pizza is shown here with sausage. Abhinanda Datta/22nd Century Media

“It’s extremely hard work, but at

the end of the day we truly enjoy it

and enjoy the customers. It can be

challenging, but there is nothing like

working with family.”

Francesca Aye — Barraco’s co-owner, on the restaurant

business

Italian restaurant is pizza, and

Barraco’s does not skimp there,

with recognizable pies such as

thin crust — the No. 1 seller —

and deep dish. Those will always

remain beloved favorites, but

Barraco’s gets creative with its

pizza offerings, as well.

The Sicilian-style pizza (pricing

varies by size and toppings)

has an extra-thick crust with

sweet sauce, and the Nicky’s

special (pricing varies) is an extra-thin

crust cheese pizza served

crispy, made with light cheese

and ingredients and served welldone.

To cap off a full meal, an

equally substantial dessert menu

has something for each respective

sweet tooth, from a cannoli

to tiramisu to an assortment of

pie slices and more.

Aye and her family pride

themselves on serving all of

the aforementioned choices in a

family atmosphere.

“It’s definitely very familyoriented,”

Aye said. “We have so

many families that continuously

come here as regulars. It feels

good to see them, and vice versa.

They’ll know stuff about my

family, and I’ll know stuff about

their families.

“They’ll celebrate their big

family events here, and we always

try to encourage that relationship.”

An additional aspect of the

business is immediately apparent

when someone walks into the Orland

Park location and observes a

wide mix of wine bottles available

for sale. In this arena, Aye said the

wine list is updated roughly every

six months, with heavier reds favored

in the wintertime and whites

in the warmer months.

As Barraco’s will soon be

celebrating 4 year of business

in 2020 since its first location

opened, the blueprint for further

sustained success remains much

the same as it has the last four

decades: listen to what customers

want, and keep family recipes,

tradition and atmosphere at

the heart.

“It’s extremely hard work, but

at the end of the day we truly enjoy

it and enjoy the customers,”

Aye said. “It can be challenging,

but there is nothing like working

with family.”

Kailey White and Natalie Papa had terrific

freshmen seasons last year, immediately

cracking the varsity lineup and becoming

two of Lincoln-Way East’s most

dependable golfers.

White even qualified for state as East’s

lone representative.

With a year of experience under their

belts and busy summer schedules leading

into this season, the sophomore duo is experiencing

a whole new comfort level this

year.

“I kind of know what to practice on

more now and know what counts during

practice, and I’m putting more time in on

my short game,” Papa said.

Papa and White both competed in

several Illinois Junior Golf Association

events over the summer, and felt

locked in by the time East’s season

started.

“I never really played in tournaments

before last season,” White said. “Playing

in those summer tournaments really

helped me. You’re more ready for 18

holes and don’t get tired so fast.”

East coach Mary McGivern said the

sophomores have a new understanding

of the game and a tougher mentality after

competing in big tournaments over the

past year.

“Getting that experience last year was

invaluable and the tournament play this

summer got them in the mode of competition

and being ready to play in stressful

situations,” she said. “That experience

shows.”

With White and Papa combining with

veteran golfers like seniors Jessica Loera

and Grace Wilk, and junior Maddie Kenny,

the Griffins are putting together a special

season.

East improved to 7-0 in dual meets with

a 155-174 win over Lincoln-Way West at

Green Garden.

White led the way, earning medalist

honors with a one-over 36. Papa (38),

Wilk (39) and Kenny (42) were not far

behind, and the consistent scores across

the lineup were representative of how it is

most days for the Griffins.

“The girls put in a lot of hard work in

the offseason,” McGivern said. “They’re

Lincoln-Way East’s Kailey White is

having a big sophomore season after

making it to state last year.

22nd Century Media file photo

so close in scores that they motivate each

other to work harder in their game. They

bring out the best in each other. It’s exciting.”

Papa said the team’s bond is strong.

“We’re really close friends and we’re

having a lot of fun playing together,” she

said. “We’re like another family.”

White feels the relationships between

the girls helps them on the course.

“We all support each other,” she said.

“We all cheer each other on.”

While White has not had many off days,

she knows any of her teammates can step

up and lead the team on any given day.

That puts less pressure on the entire team,

according to Papa.

“It makes you less worried about your

next shot,” she said. “If you hit the ball

out of bounds, you don’t think it’s going

to cost your team a win, you know someone

else is there to step up.”

With some big victories on their resume,

including winning the Lincoln-Way

Cup over LW Central, the 2018 Class AA

state third-place finisher, the Griffins’

confidence is growing.

“Beating Central was big,” Papa said.

“We’re excited about we’ve been playing.”

The ultimate goal, of course, is to make

it to state as a team.

“We all worked really hard in the winter,

over the summer, to be ready for this

year,” White said. “We really want to get

to state.”

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Kaleigh Ritter

Kaleigh Ritter is a junior libero on the

Lincoln-Way East volleyball team.

How long have you been playing

volleyball and how did you get

started?

I’ve been playing since first grade,

when I started doing camps. Pretty much

my whole family on both sides played

volleyball. Every single one of them. I’ve

just been around volleyball my whole life.

What do you like most about the

sport?

I love the competitiveness and I love

that I get to be with my friends every

single day.

Now that you are an experienced

player, are you trying to take on a

different role?

I definitely want to be one of the leaders.

I want to be the leader in the back

court and control everything on the back

row.

You have had a lot of family

members have success in sports at

Lincoln-Way East. What is it like

to be a part of such an athletic

family?

It’s amazing. I’m really proud of everyone

that’s been through here, and I have

younger sisters who are here playing on

the sophomore [volleyball] team as freshmen,

so I’m really proud of them. My

brother, Ryan, [a 2019 East graduate who

was drafted by the Cubs] and my cousin,

Jackson [a 2019 East graduate who is

playing football at Iowa] both did so great

here. I have another cousin who plays

football, too.

Your team is 8-1 [through Sept.

12]. What is the key to keeping

your success going?

We just need to put the ball down right

away, don’t let teams get a lot of leads on

us and don’t give up.

If you could be anybody else for a

day, who would you want to be?

I think I would want to be Misty May-

Treanor. She’s an Olympic beach volleyball

player. When I was younger, I really

looked up to her and watched all her

matches. It was pretty fun to watch her.

You’re stranded on a deserted

island and can have an endless

supply of one food. What would

you want?

Grilled chicken sandwiches.

If a movie was being made about

your life, who should play you?

Probably Misty May-Treanor again.

Honestly, we kind of look alike with the

dark hair and everything, and we both

play volleyball.

What is your favorite TV show?

“Grey’s Anatomy.” I like the surgery

part of it and it’s a fun show to watch.

What is your favorite class in

school?

My favorite is probably math.

Conway, Celtics knock off 2018 state runner-up Brother Rice

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Last year, injured Providence

quarterback Kevin

Conway had to sit on the

bench and watch the Celtics

offense get completely

dominated by Brother Rice

in a shutout loss.

On Friday, Sept. 13, Conway

and the Celtics got their

vengeance.

Conway, a Mokena resident,

ran for three touchdowns

and threw for another,

and a playmaking

Providence defense came up

with four interceptions as the

Celtics topped the Crusaders

34-22 in a Catholic League/

ESCC crossover on the road

in Mount Greenwood.

“It felt amazing,” Conway

said. “We knew we

could do it. We just had to

execute. We knew we could

put points up on the board

and we did. We knew we

were both great teams and

whoever played the best

game would win.”

It was another statement

win away from home for

the Celtics (3-0), who now

have a pair of road victories

against teams that recorded

double-digit wins last season,

adding to the seasonopening

defeat of Willowbrook.

Brother Rice (2-1) was

the 2018 Class 8A state runner-up,

went 13-1 and beat

Providence 20-0.

“The first two games

were tough ones, but nothing

compared to this one,”

defensive back Ryan Manikowski

said. “We knew this

game would prepare us for

the rest of the season. We

played our hearts out and we

came out with the win.”

Manikowski, a senior

from New Lenox, came

up with two interceptions,

including the game-sealer

with under two minutes to

play.

“I’m not going to lie,

that’s my least favorite catch

to make, over the shoulder

like that,” he said. “I was

just thinking, ‘Please don’t

drop this.’ It was kind of

like it was in slow motion, it

was nerve wracking. I came

down with it and it was awesome.”

Providence’s offense was

sluggish at times over the

first two weeks, and overly

reliant on running back Aaron

Vaughn.

Conway, though, had

his breakout game against

Providence at Brother Rice, Sept. 13

the Crusaders. The junior

finished 12-of-22 passing

for 181 yards and a touchdown.

Because of sacks, he

finished with just 28 yards

rushing on 15 attempts, but

he made several big plays

with his feet, including a

21-yard touchdown run

that gave the Celtics a 27-

16 lead with 1:04 left in the

third quarter.

“I had to bring it to the

legs,” Conway said. “It was

there. Their pass coverage

was pretty good. I know

any big play can happen

any moment. You just have

to be ready.”

Conway also delivered

the game’s most important

play when he scored on a

1-yard run on fourth-andgoal

to make it a two-score

game at 34-22 with 7:08

left.

“Kevin certainly came

out ready,” Providence

coach Mark Coglianese

said. “He’s been under a

lot of pressure. He made

great decisions, knew when

to run the ball, made good

throws. I think offensively

we did a good job mixing

it up and keeping them off

balance. We finally got in a

groove.”

It did not start that way,

though.

Providence began the

first drive of the night on

its own 11 and got backed

up to the 4 after a rush for

a loss and a penalty. Then,

Brother Rice’s Alex Roche

sacked Conway in the end

zone for a safety.

The Celtics, though,

shook off the shaky start.

“Bad field position,

penalty right away, it’s all

about short-term memory,”

Conway said. “You just

have toww forget about

what happened. I don’t

think the safety fazed us.”

Conway scored on a

5-yard run and hit Lucas

Porto for a 9-yard touchdown

pass to give the Celtics

a 14-2 lead.

After the Crusaders

pulled within 14-9 at halftime,

Providence’s Kevin

Countryman picked off a

Ben Somers pass around

the Rice 10-yard line and

returned it for a touchdown

early in the third.

“I saw the quarterback’s

eyes, read it right away,

jumped it and took it to the

house,” Countryman said.

“It’s awesome.”

Frankfort resident Dakota

Straight also had an interception

for the Celtics, while

Ben Seeber had three sacks

and Elias Valdez added another

sack.

yards on 29 carries.

Gardner stars as LW East keeps rolling with win over LW Central

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Lincoln-Way East junior

Cierra Gardner is an outside

hitter who can devastate an

opponent with her ability to

put down a kill, but she is

no one-trick pony.

Gardner is also effective

on the back row, something

she demonstrated

in a major way when the

Griffins hosted Lincoln-

Way Central on Sept. 12.

Gardner sparked East

with her defensive play

as the Griffins shook off

a slow start and rolled

to a 25-17, 25-17 win in

a SouthWest Suburban

crossover in Frankfort.

“Cierra has been very

consistent for us,” East

coach Kris Fiore said.

“She’s so athletic. She

can make a lot of plays

that most girls on the high

school level can’t. She

made a lot of great plays in

the back row, a lot of digs.

She had those kills, too,

but it was her defense in

the back row that was really

big for us.”

Gardner finished with

nine digs and four kills,

senior Jessica Pappas had

eight kills, junior Ava Porada

contributed 14 assists,

and junior Kaleigh

Ritter finished with five

digs to lead the Griffins

(8-1), who won their sixth

straight match.

Layne Stevens had six

kills, Nicole Ramirez

dished out 12 assists, and

Cait Rochon added seven

digs and four assists for

the Knights (6-5).

The Knights jumped out

to an 8-4 lead in the opening

set and led throughout

the first half of the set, but

East took control with a

Lincoln-Way East’s Cierra Gardner hits a kill past the

Lincoln-Way Central block during the Griffins’ win Sept.

12. STEVE MILLAR/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

5-0 spurt that put it up

19-14. Ali Sorenson had

a block and kill to spark

the run, and Gardner came

up big defensively to slow

down the hot Knights.

“We started off a little

show,” Gardner said. “We

just needed more energy.

We needed some blocks,

those get us hyped up.

“I’m trying to keep my

teammates happy, keep us

all going, make sure I do

my job.”

The Griffins outscored

the Knights 11-3 to close

out the first set, then rolled

to a 10-3 lead in the second.

“We had to get louder as

a team, get the momentum

rolling for us,” Ritter said.

“We had to pick up more

of their tips. Our blocking

was key. We had to pick up

our serve receive and play

better there.”

The Knights did not go

down without a fight, closing

within 17-14 on an

ace from Brooke Condon

(seven digs), but the Griffins

again took over late in

the set to pull away.

“Whenever we play East,

for some reason we get nervous,”

Central coach Mary

Brown said. “I asked them

not to lay down and die.

We came out excited to

play, which was good, and

we didn’t lay down and die.

We just shoot ourselves

in the foot. We make too

many errors. Our defense

has been good, but our offense

has been weak.”

Central was coming off

a 15-25, 25-22, 25-23 win

over Providence on Sept.

10 as the Knights were impressive

in fighting back

behind 10 kills from Rachel

Kolodziej.

“They didn’t stop fighting,”

Brown said. “Even

when we dig a pretty deep

hole, we fight back. Rachel

was on fire against Providence,

a big catalyst in getting

our offense going.”

East, meanwhile, is

seeing the experience it

gained while going 15-19

with a young team pay off.

“We had to learn how to

win,” Fiore said. “I think

now the girls have the confidence

that even when a

match gets tight, they’re

going to push through and

succeed.”

Boys water polo

Griffins’ Lodes named Illinois Coach of the Year

6

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Lincoln-Way East made

history this past spring,

bringing home the program’s

first state trophy

with a fourth-place finish.

For Griffins coach Ryan

Lodes, the icing on the

cake of the memorable

season came when he was

named the Boys Water

Polo Coach of the Year

for Illinois by the National

Federation of State High

School Associations.

“It’s been great,” Lodes

said. “I love the water polo

community around here.

Everyone I’ve worked

with up to this point has

kind of gotten to me where

I wanted to be. I’ve been

fortunate to coach the boys

and girls at East, and I’ve

learned a lot.

“I’m super proud, super

excited that Lincoln-Way

East was able to get so far

last year and coming that

close [to winning a state title]

just pushes me to want

to do even more.”

The Griffins went 23-10

and rolled to the South-

West Suburban title with a

10-0 record.

East was previously 0-6

in state finals games, but

the seventh time was the

charm as the Griffins beat

New Trier in an 8-7 overtime

thriller in the quarterfinals.

The Griffins nearly advanced

to the state championship

game, leading

Lyons 11-9 late in the

semifinals before falling

12-11.

“We are very proud of

Ryan and he is very deserving

of this honor,”

East athletic director Mark

Vander Kooi said. “He

works extremely hard and

takes great pride in his

coaching. The student athletes

in his program played

extremely hard and are

well-coached. His teams

are fun to watch.”

After five years as the

girls coach at Lincoln-Way

East, highlighted by a state

appearance in 2014, Lodes

moved to boys coach following

the closure of Lincoln-Way

North, as former

North girls coach Kendra

Will took over the Griffins’

girls.

The Griffins’ boys have

gone to state in each of

Lodes’ three seasons at the

helm.

This spring’s trip,

though, was especially

meaningful as the Griffins

at long last took the next

step and earned a trophy.

“Sandburg and Lockport

are the only teams

from around here that have

placed at state and when

they did that, those years

did leaps and bounds for

growing those programs,”

members of his team. Lodes was named the 2019

Illinois Boys Water Polo Coach of the Year.

Steve Millar/22nd Century Media

Lodes said. “I know it was

big for us.”

Lodes is a 2005 graduate

of Lincoln-Way Central,

where he played water

polo. He has coached the

sport for 10 years.

“I absolutely love the

game and learning new and

interesting offenses and

ways to teach athletes,” he

Griffins cruise to dominant win over Bradley-Bourbonnais

5

JON DEPAOLIS

Freelance Reporter

There may have been a

slight mid-September chill

in the air, but the Lincoln-

Way East offense set the

field on fire against Bradley-Bourbonnais.

The Griffins scored 42

unanswered points in the

first half to coast to a 42-7

victory on Friday, Sept. 13,

in Frankfort.

That was led in large part

by a dynamic performance

by senior AJ Henning, who

accounted for three touchdowns

in the blowout.

“You never get used to it,

and it’s always fun,” East

coach Rob Zvonar said

of Henning’s playmaking

abilities. “But the fun part

this year with him is that

he’s played bell to bell, every

game. We’re not having

to spot play him and worry

about injuries. We’re just

letting him be a kid and be

a football player.”

Henning rushed seven

times for 35 yards and two

touchdowns, and he caught

four passes for 120 yards,

including a 23-yard touchdown

from Kyle Quinn on

a slant with 7 minutes, 19

seconds left in the second

quarter to put the Griffins

(3-0) up 35-0.

“We saw some open

space in the middle field,

and it was Quinn making

the right read on a RPO

[run-pass option],” Henning

said of the touchdown

catch. “He saw the coverage

and hit me right in

stride. It was a great play

call.”

The East offense fired on

all cylinders from the opening

whistle through the

end of the half, with Quinn

torching the Bradley-Bourbonnais

defense for 24

minutes.

THREE STARS OF THE GAME

1. AJ Henning, Lincoln-Way East, senior wide receiver – four

catches, 120 yards, touchdown; seven rushes, 35

yards, two touchdowns

2. Kyle Quinn, Lincoln-Way East, senior quarterback – 9-of-

13 passing, 216 yards, three touchdowns; four rushes,

26 yards

3. Jake Kramer, Lincoln-Way East, senior linebacker – three

sacks, five tackles for loss

Quinn finished 9-of-13

for 216 yards and three

touchdowns, the first of

which came on a 43-yard

bomb to Sam Paliga with

8:15 left in the first quarter.

Quinn capped East’s

scoring with a 25-yard

touchdown strike to Joseph

Dochee, making it 42-0

with 1:11 left in the second

quarter.

“Every game I go into,

it’s just another opportunity

to prove those doubters

[wrong] and to let them

know that I’m not just a

runner,” Quinn said. “I can

throw the ball.”

East running back Jamal

Johnson also had a good

night for the offense, rushing

five times for 35 yards,

including a 2-yard touchdown

in the first quarter.

Meanwhile, the East defense

continued to dominate

opponents, allowing

just one score: a 30-yard

touchdown run by quarterback

Keaton Schmidt with

8:55 left in the game.

East senior linebacker

Jake Kramer was front and

center against the Boilermakers,

accounting for

five total tackles for loss,

including three sacks. But

Kramer was quick to heap

on praise to his teammates

after the game.

“I can’t take any credit

for that, because we’ve

got the best ‘D’ line in the

state,” Kramer said. “It’s

not even close.”

Kramer pointed to the efforts

of Zack Richter, Sean

McLaughlin, Jaron Hacha

and Adrian Wilson for taking

out blockers.

But Zvonar said Kramer

has been making plays like

these since last year.

“He was our leading

tackler as a junior at [middle]

linebacker,” Zvonar

said. “We moved him to the

weak side, where he plays

out in space a little bit, because

he’s become such

a good athlete. I said that

coming into the season he

had a chance to arguably be

as productive a linebacker

[as any] in the Chicago

area. Through three games,

so far, he certainly has lived

up to that.

“He’s just an old school,

throwback, tough linebacker

that runs well. Jake is

our captain – the leader of

our defense. The kids look

up to him, because he talks

the talk and walks the walk.

In terms of his character,

he’s just a special kid to be

around.”

Rounding out the stout

defensive performance

was an interception by

Jalen Hacha late in the first

half, when he returned it to

the Bradley-Bourbonnais

7-yard line. But with just

under a minute left to play

in the half, and the Griffins

up 42 points, East opted to

take a knee on two straight

plays to send it to halftime.

“I just think that we walk

out on to any field we play

on and think we are the

most feared defense in the

state,” Kramer said. “We’re

the fastest and the most

athletic, and we know if

one guy misses a tackle, we

have 10 other guys flying to

the ball and hitting people

and making them fear running

or throwing the ball

against us. Our chemistry

is through the roof.”

The Griffins (3-0) head

to Bolingbrook (3-0) for a

Friday, Sept. 20 showdown.

It will mark the start of a

tough two-week stretch for

the Griffins, who will then

host Homewood-Flossmoor

(3-0) a week later.

“We’ll know a lot about

ourselves the next couple

of weeks,” Zvonar

said.

RANDY WHALEN, Freelance Reporter

It’s been a strong season so far

for Lincoln-Way East’s boys golf

team, which is 5-0 in dual meets

following a 171-190 win over T.F.

South on Sept. 11.

Senior Jake Nair, son of East

coach Jim Nair, was the medalist

for the Griffins on that day, shooting

a 41 at Lansing Country Club.

The Griffins were then challenged

at the 28-team Providence

Invitational – one of the toughest

regular- season tournaments in the

state – on Saturday, Sept. 14.

East had its ups and downs

there, finishing 13th at The Sanctuary

in New Lenox.

Nair and junior Matt Kelley tied

for the team’s top score with 83

apiece. Junior Alex Goetsch (85),

senior TJ DeVries (88) and freshman

Dylan Drogemuller (92) finished

out the East scores.

“We struggled a bit today

against a great field,” Jim Nair

said. “But Jake Nair and Alex

Goetsch shot lower than their average,

which was a good sign for

things to come.

“Matt Kelley and freshman

Dylan Drogemuller have led us so

far this season to a record of 5-0

in dual matches. Also stepping up

so far this year is senior transfer

from Arizona, Martin Clancy, and

TJ DeVries.”

Lincoln-Way Central junior

Sean Curran fired a two-under 70

to take third place, two strokes behind

Loyola’s Ryan Banas.

“I’ve been doing well,” Curran

said. “I’ve been getting into the

groove of it. Junior year has been

tougher at school, but I’ve had fun

playing. I like the way my game

has been trending. I made just a

few mistakes and had a couple of

bogies.”

Last year, Curran was second in

the state in Class 3A, one stroke

behind Lockport’s Ben Sluzas,

who finished fifth at the Providence

Invite with a 72.

“I’m getting ready for the postseason,”

Curran said. “It’s a lot

of fun playing against Ben and

I know him well. Having him in

the area is a good opportunity to

compete against him and compare

scores.”

Lincoln-Way Central (316) finished

fourth in the team race behind

champion Waubonsie Valley

(303), Lockport (310) and Sandburg

(314).

Providence (326) was seventh

and Lincoln-Way West (328)

eighth.

After qualifying for state two

years ago, the Knights were unable

to advance out of the regional

as a team last fall. They hope to

make another run for state this

season.

Their performance at the Providence

Invite was a good sign.

“To take fourth in a very strong

field is fine,” Central coach Ryan

Pohlmann said. “We had some

peaks and valleys during the season,

and we want to get the valleys

out of the way now.

“We liked playing the tougher

competition here and we are excited

for things to come. Hopefully

we can get through in October and

a tournament like this helps prepare

us for the regional and sectional.”

Besides Curran, the rest of the

Knights scores were sophomore

Juney Bai (80), senior TJ Edmier

(83), junior Nick Tingley (83) and

junior Tommy Schaaf (83).

Host Providence was paced by

a 78 from junior Davis Billows.

Sophomore Drew Brasky (79), senior

Ryan Hilty (82), senior Trevor

Vandenberg (87) and junior Michael

Blake (98) rounded out the

Celtic scores.

“We shot a 326 and we will be

in Class 2A this season,” Providence

coach John Platt said of his

team’s playing in the smaller class

this year. “That [Lemont] Regional

will be at Cog Hill and the [Hinsdale

South} Sectional will be at

Prairie Bluff.

“In the meantime, I’ve got to get

my third and fourth scores up. My

top two have been consistent, but

I find a lot of teams are having a

hard time with that. The top scores

are lower but the bottom ones are

higher.”

Platt was excited to have so

much talent at the Celtics’ tournament,

and a change was made to

present a bigger challenge to the

top golfers.

“We played the back tees today

and it’s the first year we’ve used

them in the 19 years I’ve been

here and over 20 now for the tournament,”

Platt said. “But the field

had last season’s No. 1 [Sluzas],

No. 2 [Curran], and No. 4 [Waubonsie

Valley’s Will Troy] golfers

in the [Class 3A] state from last

year. So that’s how good it was.”

Lincoln-Way West has a new

coach in Dan Szablewski. The

Warriors, who won a regional title

last season, did well with a Top 10

finish.

Junior Zack Phelps (79) led the

way. He was followed by senior

Jason Lange (80), sophomore Aidan

Healy (81), senior Ethan Healy

(88), and junior Glenn Jackson

(90).

Despite the strong second-place

finish, Lockport was sort of disappointed.

The Porters, who finished

third in Class 3A last year, have

set the bar high.

“A 310 score is a little high for

us,” Lockport coach Matt Eber

said. “We have been getting better

than 310 in these tournaments.

But I like how we played in these

[windy] conditions. We just needed

someone to have a better backnine

score. But we will be there,

we will be fine. I’m not worried.”

Listen Up

feared defense in the state.”
