Orland Park Village Board

Public budget hearing focuses on $25 million in capital projects

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

The Village of Orland

Park Board of Trustees

continued fiscal year 2020

budget discussions Sept.

30 during a special hearing

that touched upon capital

improvement, technology,

and water and sewer projects.

The proposed fiscal year

2020 budget would spend

approximately $25.7 million

on capital projects,

$1.1 million on technology,

and $1.4 million on

vehicles and equipment.

Funding for these expenses

would come from the general

fund (approximately

$2.6 million), home rule

sales tax ($6.65 million),

the water and sewer fund

($4.5 million), an existing

line of credit ($4 million

for capital improvement

projects) and additional

debt proceeds ($4.8 million

in capital improvement

projects, and $3 million

for water and sewer).

For the capital improvement

projects slated to be

funded by existing line

of credit revenue and additional

debt, the projects

include $3.3 million for

the roadway maintenance

program, $4 million for

the roadway reconstruction

program, $580,000 for

the Harlem Avenue street

lighting wire replacement,

$500,000 for Phase 2 improvements

to the John

Humphrey Complex, and

$400,000 for a telecommunications

system upgrade.

The water and sewer

project slated to be funded

by additional debt would

be for water main replacements

in the amount of

$2.6 million.

“The road programs have

already been tentatively approved

by the board for

about $4 million in additional

debt, and that’s part

of the road program that has

been discussed previously,”

Interim Village Manager

Tom Dubelbeis said. “If the

Board of Trustees approves

all the items in the capital

budget, it will increase debt

by an additional $7.84 million.

That’s if all projects

are approved.”

In terms of existing Village

debt, Dubelbeis said

that $6.7 million of debt

would be paid in 2019; $5

million in 2020; and $19

million in both 2021 and

2022.

“By the end of 2022,

$49 million in debt will

go away,” Dubelbeis said.

“We’re not recommending

you replace it with $49

million of debt, but it certainly

gives you the latitude

to continue to be fiscally

responsible and take

on debt as it makes sense

to provide services to the

community.”

In regard to the roads,

Trustee Dan Calandriello

asked how certain roads

were selected for repair.

According to Village staff,

the process involves a list

put together by a consultant

that ranked roads in

order of those in most need

of repairs, as well as staff

input on roads that have

received complaints about

increasing deterioration.

Mayor Keith Pekau also

mentioned that practicality

plays a part.

“Also, if I recall from

this year, what [staff] tried

to do with a few is if we

had — in one case — two

subdivisions being done

and right in between was a

third one that made sense

[to repair even though]

it was not one of the Top

10,” he said. “But it was

like [Top] 30. So, they did

them all at once.”

Trustee James Dodge

pointed out that the increased

road funding

would not be a “one-off

thing.”

“If I’ve heard staff correctly,

over time, this is

multiple years at roughly

$7 million a year that we’re

recommending,” Dodge

said. “So, this is the start

of potentially $35 million

to $40 million worth of

road improvements over

the next 5-7 years.”

In terms of funding,

Dodge said there are only

a few options the Village

can take.

“We need to invest in

our roads,” he said. “Roads

cost money. You either borrow

it or you raise taxes,

or you cut expenditures

elsewhere. Pretty simple

formula.”

Meanwhile, Pekau said

one of the reasons for borrowing

to help fund the

water and sewer projects

is because water and sewer

rate revenues were “soft

this year.”

Finance Director Annmarie

Mampe expanded

on that during the meeting.

“We’ve seen a significant

decline in our consumption

over the last three years,

and [revenue] has taken

a pretty big hit,” Mampe

said. “All the water rates

have gone up every year

over the last five years, because

our consumption has

gone down so much.”

She said there will need

to be further analysis of the

water fund and consumption

rates to factor into

planning for future years.

Dodge pointed out that,

overall, the Village’s financial

history has allowed it

to be able to take on new

challenges.

“I’m just thrilled that

we’re in a place to have this

kind of financial strength,”

Dodge said. “All those

plans years ago netted us

exactly the situation today,

so we can start to put money

back for our residents. It

worked out well.”

At the end of the meeting,

Mampe said the proposal

for the items discussed

would remain a draft until

formally approved by the

Village Board in December

— meaning it could be subject

to change as more conversations

take place about

the budget.

There was tentative

agreement over the items

from all of the trustees,

though.

“I have no problems supporting

this as a very welldone

simulation,” Dodge

said prior to the rest of the

Village Board giving a nonbinding

vote of consensus.

D135 committee questions trend of parents eating with students at lunch

Board advisory

committee also

takes another look

at pot policy

Rochelle McAuliffe,

Freelance Reporter

Policies regarding parents

visiting students for

lunch and a drug-free

workplace with the legalization

of cannabis in January

2020 were the two hot

topics at the Orland School

District 135 Policy/Personnel

Board Advisory Committee

meeting on Oct. 1.

Out of a concern for

the safety and privacy of

students, the committee

discussed Policy 8:30, referencing

visitors and conduct

on school property

because of an increased

number of parents visiting

school campuses during

lunchtimes to eat with

students.

According to committee

members, this trend is not

only alarming but also disruptive.

“Every time a door

opens to let a visitor in,

that’s breaking our safety

and security,” said Suzanne

Owens, director of

human resources for the

district. “We also just want

them to be able to be kids

and to be able to engage

with their peers.”

In addition to the disruption

in the school day

for students, there is an

extra burden put on staff.

Janitorial staff is forced to

put out additional tables,

and administrative staff is

pressed to accommodate

the checking in and out of

multiple parents in a timely

yet secure manner.

Committee member Brian

Riordan questioned if

there was any benefit at all.

“I just don’t understand

it,” Riordan said. “It’s a

break in their [school] day

routine. This is a safety issue,

it’s a social issue, it’s

an administrative issue and

it’s a social disruption.”

Owens referenced the

policy of New Lenox

School District 122, which

allows parents to pick up

children for pre-approved,

off-campus lunches on

special occasions such as

birthdays, and the committee

discussed implementing

a similar policy.

The committee is to

discuss the issue with the

Board of Education at the

next full board meeting

Drug policy in schools

discussed as cannabis

legalization looms

After the passing of the

Illinois Cannabis Regulation

and Tax Act, cannabis

will become legal on

Jan. 1, 2020. As legalization

draws nearer, Illinois

school districts are being

advised to look at policies

and procedures regarding

drugs, alcohol and tobacco

Sandburg principal leads ‘magical place’

Kyle LaHucik

Freelance Reporter

Jennifer Tyrrell is pacing

the sidelines of Seliga

Field, coffee in hand, an

admiral blue Eagles sweatshirt

on to protect her from

post-thunderstorm winds

on Sept. 27.

She runs toward the corner

of the end zone and

stops shy of the pylon to

cheer as loudly as possible

as the Eagles score

their third touchdown of

the day.

Her head mildly hurts

from the homecoming

rally dodgeball tournament

the day prior, but it

is a minor blip this breezy

September afternoon.

Seconds later, she shuffles

back onto the track

to answer questions about

what it takes to lead a high

school of approximately

3,000 students and roughly

300 staff.

This is Tyrrell’s day-today

life

Comfortably into her

second year as principal

of Sandburg High School,

Tyrrell, 37, juggles a

schedule chock-full of

meetings, student interactions,

classroom observations,

curriculum planning

and co-curricular events.

Oh, and she is in the

final stages of writing a

dissertation on curricular

change for a soon-to-becompleted

doctorate in educational

leadership from

Loyola University.

But it is not about the

countless hours — it

would be easier to tally the

hours not spent on her role

at the high school, Assistant

Principal Greg Gardner

said — it is about the

heart that goes into the job,

Tyrrell said.

Tyrrell does not rise at

Sandburg Principal Jennifer Tyrrell poses for a photo near her office inside of the main office, which she said she

tries to make a welcoming place for both students and staff. Kyle LaHucik/22nd Century Media

4 a.m. like she did prior to

coming to Sandburg from

her role as assistant principal

at Stagg — her alma

mater from the late 1990s

— but she is usually working

on the computer by 5

a.m. She arrives at school

between 7:15-7:30 a.m.,

although sometimes she

opts to get in before zero

hour to greet the earlyrisers,

high-fiving students

as they stroll into W8, the

main entrance to what she

calls “a magical place.”

“That passion, that energy

makes [Sandburg] a

great place for kids to walk

in and out of every single

day, and it makes it a great

place for [staff],” she said.

This is her favorite part

of the day. These moments

before the 8 a.m.

first bell are just the start

of the many interactions

she will have with students

throughout a day. She

thrives on students’ vigor

and is working to build on

the culture her predecessor,

Deb Baker, cultivated

from 2014-2018.

“I think Baker’s tenure

as principal at Sandburg

changed the game in terms

of community expectations

from the principal, in

a good way,” Tyrrell said.

The expectations are

mutual, Baker said.

“In Orland Park, one,

there’s a strong value system

in place for families

and, No. 2, a strong belief

in a good education,”

Baker said by phone. “So

the high expectation that

I would’ve communicated

definitely came from the

community itself.”

From events to meetings

to issues to celebrations,

each day presents a unique

set of opportunities.

“There’s different opportunities

to impact the

lives of young people, and

that’s exciting,” Tyrrell

emphasized.

She will listen to students

who pop into the

main office.

“It should be a place

where kids and staff like to

come,” she said.

She will meet with student

ambassadors, such as

senior Leo Serdar, to plan

upcoming events. She will

sit in on a class lesson to

which she has been invited.

“I decided really early in

my time at Sandburg that

if somebody invited me to

something, I would do my

absolute best to go,” she

said.

Then, after the bell

strikes 3 p.m., she will

head to one of the 76

clubs or 31 sports offered

by Sandburg. She will be

at a water polo game one

minute and then somehow

show up at a basketball

game at a school 45

minutes away in an earthshattering

15 minutes later,

Serdar said.

Put simply, “You can

go right from a meeting to

sitting in a dunk tank in a

matter of just a few minutes,”

Tyrrell said.

She almost did not become

an educator, though.

“I thought from the time

I was a really young person

that I was going to be

a college softball coach,”

Tyrrell said. “That’s the

job I was going to have.”

In a way, she came

close. She played second

base for Western Illinois

University’s softball team

as an undergrad. And,

while a graduate student,

she was an assistant coach

at Western.

Then, one Wednesday

morning, the trajectory of

her future was redirected.

“My sister called, ‘Jen,

there’s a physical education

job opening at Stagg;

you need to apply for it,’”

Tyrrell recalled.

So she went to WIU’s

computer lab, applied for

the job and got a call the

same day. Two interviews

followed. And by that

weekend, she had her first

job teaching.

Tyrrell earned a master’s

degree in kinesiologysports

management and

a bachelor’s in physical

education from Western,

and she holds a certificate

in educational leadership

from Lewis University.

During her tenure at

Stagg High School, Tyrrell

taught physical education

for four years; was division

chair of PE, health

and driver’s education

for five years; and then

was associate principal of

instruction, which is the

same role Baker held before

making the leap to

principal of Sandburg.

And Baker said she was

“on the same page” with

Tyrrell when they worked

together at Stagg.

“I just enjoy watching

her energy and her spirit

and her leadership unfold

for the next generation

of Sandburg students


OPPrairiedaily.com news

the orland park prairie | October 10, 2019 | 7

with culture, student voice at forefront

and faculty,” Baker said.

“Because it seems like everybody

is having a great

time.”

Tyrrell’s leadership

and passion stem from

her coaching and softball

background. And

coach is the first descriptor

that comes to mind

for her.

“It’s a part of who I am,”

she said. “I think in everything

I do, I take that mentality

with me.”

The modern-day leaders

she looks up to most

are athletic coaches, such

as University of Minnesota

football coach P.J.

Fleck — who is the same

age — and University of

Nebraska football coach

Scott Frost.

The positive vibes these

leaders instill in their team

cultures are what she tries

to infuse into her own role

as proverbial head coach

of Sandburg.

Her voice is engaging

and ardent, compelling

people to want to adopt

her passion for, essentially,

everything.

Walk through the halls

of Sandburg and around

Mike Navarro Stadium

with Tyrrell, and one

would think they’re listening

to a TED Talk on

leadership. She emanates

the lessons of an author

and leadership expert she

studies by the name of Jon

Gordon.

A critical ingredient in

a Sandburg education today,

Tyrrell said, is socialemotional

learning. It is

evident in the way she

speaks about the culture

she is working to promote

in the classroom and outside

the edifice at 13300 S.

LaGrange Road.

“Continuing to take care

“At the end of the day, it should be a good tired.

It should be a really good tired, where you feel

good about the connections that you’ve made,

the relationships that have developed and the fun

time that our kids have had.”

Jennifer Tyrrell — Sandburg principal, on lessons her mother taught her

that play into her educational philosophy

of and maintain the culture

and climate [of Sandburg]

will always be something

that overarches everything

that we do,” Tyrrell said.

“We’ll always put students’

experiences at the

center. We’ll always talk

about ways that we could

better maximize the experience.”

Baker steered the ship

for four years, and Julia

Wheaton for two years

prior to that. But the way

she talks about Sandburg

offers one the hint that

Tyrrell is there for the long

haul.

“I hope so,” Tyrrell said

of the prospect.

That does not mean her

first year was smooth sailing.

The school is “like a

city within a city sometimes,”

as Baker characterized

Sandburg.

“I probably learned more

last year than I have in any

year of my life,” Tyrrell

said. “A lot of it I learned

on the job. I’ve learned a

lot in classrooms, [and]

I’ve learned a lot on the

field throughout the course

of my life.”

Living the life of a principal

gives one a different

perspective on how much

work, quite frankly, goes

into running Illinois’ 24th

largest high school by enrollment.

The sheer portfolio

of classes offered by

Sandburg — 270-plus —

could shock a new principal.

She hit the ground running

last year and is committed

to feeling the pulse

of the school by hearing

directly from students.

“The power of the story,

knowing that each and

every one of our 3,000

students comes from a different

home and a different

background and a different

life experience, and the

more we learn about that

story or what makes that

student unique ... we can

then better connect with

the kid well,” Tyrrell said.

“The power of the story is

significant.”

She talks about students

as though they are her own

children, and students

reciprocate that special

bond. It’s a rare day when

Tyrrell doesn’t tweet (@

jltyrrell8) a photo or selfie

with students and/or staff

doing something she qualifies

as “Elite Daily.”

As she walked past the

home-side stands during

the homecoming football

game against Lockport

Township High School,

students shouted “Tyrrell!”

It was as though

they were cheering for

their favorite player on

the field.

They might have been.

Tyrrell is not above her

students or a robot who

hides in the principal’s office;

she leads as though

she is a peer mentor.

“I think the student experience

right now is just

awesome,” Tyrrell said.

“It’s the best word to describe

it.”

Serdar, the student ambassador

and a SuperfanZ

leader, said Tyrrell’s energy

rubs off on everyone,

especially when she is

greeting students.

He paints the picture of

a lugubrious, rainy morning

in which students

“know it was hard to get

out of bed that morning,

but their principal was

there for them that day”

high-fiving them upon entering

W8, Serdar said.

From saying “hi” to

students before they even

step foot into the school

to welcoming them into

her office to talking with

them during passing periods,

Tyrrell has embedded

herself in the community.

It is a dynamic role, being

principal, she said.

Her presence — at band

concerts, school musicals,

football games, cross

country meets, you name

Sandburg Principal Jennifer Tyrrell high-fives students

Khaled Saleh and Rachel Krasowski Sept. 27 at the

homecoming football game at the Orland Park high

school. Jeff Vorva/22nd Century Media

it — is a self-prescribed

priority.

The way she carries herself

outside school functions

is analogous to her

character when serving as

the face of Sandburg.

“I believe that we can all

just be who we are, and it’s

important that we are who

we are no matter what the

context is,” she said. “So,

non-Principal Tyrrell is

very similar to Principal

Tyrrell.”

Outside of school, her

family and godson rejuvenate

and galvanize her.

And it was her family who

imparted with her early on

possibly the most important

advice she would need

as principal.

“My mom always says,

‘When you feel good

about what you’re doing,

but you’re tired, it’s a

good tired,’” Tyrrell said.

“So, at the end of the day,

it should be a good tired.

It should be a really good

tired, where you feel good

about the connections that

you’ve made, the relationships

that have developed

and the fun time that our

kids have had.”

Friends of former Orland Park resident lace up skates for his fundraiser

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

From the moment you

meets Jim Hokanson and

he tells you to call him

“Hokie,” you know you’ve

made a friend.

On Sept. 28, the many

friends of Hokanson — a

graduate of Andrew High

School who was diagnosed

with pancreatic, liver and

gallbladder cancer in April

— laced up their skates to

raise money for the cancer

treatment and associated

expenses of the former

resident of Tinley Park and

Orland Park.

While Hokanson has

called Michigan home for

the past five years, he explained

that he literally

lived at the Tinley Park

Roller Rink when he was

the manager — the facility

once had an upstairs living

space — and that is where

he made so many wonderful

friends he now considers

family.

“Seeing these people

here tonight is the most important

thing,” Hokanson

said. “It means so much. It

warms my heart. Look at

all the lovely people.”

Tinley Park resident

Mike Wittman was one of

the people Hokanson met

at the rink. And although

the men had been friends

for many years, Wittman

joked that he did not learn

Hokanson’s first name until

he stood up in his wedding.

“I don’t think anybody’s

ever called him Jim,” Wittman

said. “I’ve known the

man for 35 years, and I’ve

never heard anybody call

him Jim, unless we’re mad

at him. We all used to work

here, and we were one big

happy family. That’s the

best way to describe it. We

even go on vacations together.”

Frankfort resident

Chuck Zaborac was among

the old friends who helped

to plan the fundraiser,

which included raffles, a

split-the-pot, roller skating

and a special “Hokie”

Pokey segment. Attendees

also were invited to bid on

the opportunity to win a

Roller Rink during a fundraiser held for Hokanson, who was diagnosed with cancer.

date with Hokie.

“This is a fun way to get

together again and also a

way to fight for what we

believe in,” Zaborac said.

“Cancer is a shame for

anybody who gets it. My

friend Hokie’s got it, and I

want to do something.”

Tinley Park Roller Rink

co-owner Carey Westberg-

Quitter was thrilled to see

so many returning skaters

— and their families — onsite

to support Hokanson.

“Hokie’s been working

for us since he was a

teenager,” Westberg-Quitter

said. “He lived in the

rink ... and he managed

the rink and helped at our

other rink in Glenwood.

He’s still going strong. Everybody

who skated here

would skate three, four

times a week, and it became

one big family. Now,

they’re bringing their kids

here, so it’s the cycle of

life. It’s a time capsule. It’s

incredible to see all these

friends and all these former

skaters back. A lot of

them are skating very well,

like they never left.”

The event may have

been the first time that the

longtime friends organized

a fundraiser to raise money

for a good cause, but they

all agreed that it would not

be the last.

“We want to keep something

like this going every

year,” Zaborac said. “When

Hokie beats it, we’ll raise

money for somebody else

who needs it. Hokie and

I have known each other

for 40 years-plus. We’ve

known each other forever.

It’s time to do something

about cancer. It’s time to

help people, and I want this

to continue.”

Following the fundraiser

for Hokanson, the group

planned to keep the philanthropic

evening going

down the road at Teehan’s,

where another benefit for

someone with cancer was

being held that very night.

“It’s is all about having

fun and finding a way

to make cancer treatment

easier for others,” Zaborac

said. “That’s what it’s all

about.”

Business Briefs

First Alert, Lowe’s in

Orland Park to team up for

fire safety event

In honor of Fire Prevention

Month in October and

to bring fire safety top of

mind, First Alert is teaming

up with more than

1,700 Lowe’s stores across

the country in a joint effort

to spread awareness

about the importance of

whole home protection.

As part of this initiative,

Chicago-area residents

are invited to participate

in a special safety education

event with their local

fire departments. The

focus of the event will be

to educate attendees about

how to protect their families

and homes from the

threats of fire and carbon

monoxide.

Each year, nearly 3,000

Americans die from home

fires, while CO poisoning

claims approximately 450

lives, according to the National

Fire Protection Association.

The NFPA also

reports that almost 3 of every

5 home fire deaths resulted

from fires in homes

with no smoke alarms or

no working smoke alarms.

Store associates and

fire officials are to host

fun, family-focused activities

to teach families

about equipping their

homes with smoke and CO

alarms, as well as planning

and practicing a fire

escape plan. Children will

have the opportunity to

build a wooden fire truck

in a one-time kids’ workshop,

and will receive

firefighter hats, coloring

books and educational materials,

while supplies last.

In addition, smoke and CO

alarms will be on display,

including First Alert’s 10-

year sealed battery alarms

that provide reliable protection

for a decade without

the hassle of battery

replacements.

Among those taking part

is Lowe’s at 15601 South

Lagrange Road in Orland

Park, from 10 a.m.-noon

Oct. 10.

To ensure a family and

home are best protected

from fire, people should

follow the guidelines set

by the NFPA and U.S. Fire

Administration, which recommend

that homes have

smoke alarms installed

inside every bedroom, outside

each sleeping area and

on every level of the home,

including the basement,

and one CO alarm on each

level and in (or near) each

sleeping area.

Ballet 5:8 awarded

Ballet 5:8, a nonprofit

arts organization, has been

awarded a third grant from

the Illinois Arts Council

Agency: $10,900 for general

9:30 a.m., with the workshop

13 performances are $15,

thanks to operating support

from sources like the

IACA.

On Oct. 12, local youth

and aspiring professional

dancers ages 10-18 also

will have a chance to

peek into a day in the life

of the professional dancers

thanks to Ballet 5:8’s

“Backstage Pass” event.

Attendees will get to watch

the professional dancers

during their warm-up

class and pre-performance

routine, and will attend

a Q&A with the dancers

before viewing the 3 p.m.

in-studio performance of

“Butterfly.”

In November, Ballet 5:8

trainees will be presenting

excerpts from “Beyond the

Nutcracker” in the studios

in a short one-hour format

designed especially for

children and families.

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

Officials vote to annex gas

station on Harlem Avenue

The Tinley Park Village

Board voted 5-1 on Oct.

1 to annex in a gas station

about which many area

residents shared concerns

last month.

The 4.87-acre gas station

— Lenny’s Food N

Fuel Harlem Avenue LLC,

owned by Leonard McEnery

— operates at 19420 S.

Harlem Ave. in unincorporated

land adjacent to the

Village. Lenny’s Food N

Fuel operates as a gas station

for automobiles and

trucks, a convenience store

with drive-up food service,

two restaurants, a carwash,

and an outdoor dispensing

and filling station for propane

tanks.

As part of the annexation,

Trustee Michael

Mueller said a schedule

is in place for McEnery

to bring the property “into

compliance with Village

building and sign codes

with some noted exceptions.”

At the Sept. 17 meeting,

a public hearing was held

prior to the board meeting,

during which residents

turned out to share their

concerns that annexation

of the gas station would

lead to the business owner

seeking liquor and video

gaming licenses for the

site.

Trustee Michael Glotz

addressed the gaming concerns

during his comments

at the end of the Oct. 1

meeting, and said that any

gaming violation would

likely lead to suspension

or revocation of the license.

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

Chamber luncheon helps

small business in Lockport

grow

With an aim to help

small business owners

in the city, the Lockport

Chamber of Commerce

organized an informative

session as part of its

luncheon Sept. 25 with

members of the U.S. Small

Business Administration.

“Since I took charge, I

wanted to reinstate some

programs that started to

slip away,” said Annette

Parker, executive director

at the Lockport Chamber.

“One of those programs

was our chamber luncheons.

I started looking

for topics and speakers

that have a direct impact

on businesses. I have done

some work in the past with

the Small Business Administration

and, since the

Lockport Chamber has so

many small business owners

as members, I thought

the SBA would be a great

topic of interest.

“Our luncheons are

open to members and nonmembers,

as well, so the

information could also be

useful to anyone looking

to start up their own business.”

The presentation by

Phyllis Shelton, economic

development specialist at

SBA Illinois, focused on

programs and services, including

counseling, access

to capital and contracting.

“I enjoyed speaking to

the Lockport Chamber,”

Shelton said. “It was a

great experience. The attendees

were excited to

learn about the SBA’s programs

that can help them

start and expand their

small businesses.”

the SBA and its programs,

FROM THE NEW LENOX PATRIOT

Shoppers spend Sunday

sifting through Community

Rummage Sale

Twister, Goofy Golf

Machine and shelves full

of children’s books lined

the front steps of the New

Lenox Public Library on

Sept. 29.

An overnight downpour

that lasted well into

the morning did not put a

damper on the thrift shopping

of local residents who

showed up to the Friends

of the New Lenox Public

Library’s Community

Rummage Sale.

In front of the library

steps and scattered along

the New Lenox Commons,

approximately

seven groups set up tents

to sell items ranging from

Halloween costumes to

random knickknacks to

old children’s toys to used

tools.

The event — originally

sold out at 120 booths and

scheduled for Sept. 28 —

benefitted the Friends’

mission to support special

programs at the library.

Janice Schwarz, a volunteer

member of the friends,

said the group has helped

fund library projects such

as the Digital Media Lab

over the years. She has

been involved with the organization

over the years

because of her devotion to

the library.

“You see how much the

library does for the community;

it reaches out to

everyone in the community,

regardless of race or

religion,” Schwarz said.

“It does the most to help

people.”

Bill Jones, Editor

Publisher 22nd Century

contest just got a little bit

sweeter.

In addition to the already

announced slate of

prizes, Culver’s in Orland

Park has agreed to donate

a dinner and dessert for

two to each of our winners.

Our pumpkin-carving

contest for 2019 has a category

for adults 16 and

older, as well as one for

children 15 and younger.

In both categories, it is all

about creativity and skill.

We will pick just one

winner across each category

from all seven of

our southwest suburban

towns: Orland Park, Tinley

Park, Frankfort, Mokena,

We have just a few rules.

1) You have to be the

person who carved the

pumpkin. You cannot submit

for anyone else, with

the exception of parents

submitting for children.

2) Each person can only

submit one pumpkin photo

(can feature multiple pumpkins

if there is a theme) for

an entry, though families

can send one entry per person

from different members

of the family (and they can

be submitted together).

3) We understand there

may be a bit in the way of

scary imagery (such is the

nature of the holiday), but

the pumpkins have to be

relatively family friendly

to be considered and published.

Keep it PG-13.

4) Entries must be submitted

no later than 2 p.m.

Carving out some

time for family fun

BILL JONES

bill@opprairie.com

If you check out Page

14 in this week’s

paper, you’ll see a

reminder on the pumpkincarving

contest that’s already

underway (we also

have a costume contest

that was announced last

week).

The Halloween contests

are my favorite to judge,

because area residents

tend to get really creative

and go all-out for the

holiday. When it comes

to carving pumpkins, in

particular, I don’t ever try

much more than the basic

shapes. But I can appreciate

the talent it takes to cut

up the gourds in interesting

ways.

Maybe as a way to

prime myself for the

professional-level talent

about to come across my

desk, I found time last Friday,

in a busy week, to go

check out the media day

for Jack’s Pumpkin Glow

in Lisle. (Maybe you’ve

seen the billboards?)

Oddly enough, it has no

tie to the Jack’s Pumpkin

Pop-Up that took place

last year and returns to

Chicago this year. This

one is pumpkin-focused

and designed for all ages,

touting more than 5,000

carved pumpkins and

other glowing attractions

at the Sensory Garden

Playground. It’s open

select nights through Oct.

27 (glowpumpkin.com).

The pumpkins there

— many real, some foam

likenesses — are carved

to fit themes (a shipwreck

scene is accented by a

sea of pumpkins featuring

fish and more), in the

shapes of motorcycles

and dinosaurs, and much

more. There are live carving

demonstrations, as

roughly 1,000 pumpkins

are swapped in weekly.

And people can buy concessions

on the way in and

pumpkins on the way out.

It’s a fun sight, especially

for those who appreciate

a well-carved pumpkin.

But at $16.99-$28.99

per person (depending on

age and day of the week),

it’s not exactly cheap

family entertainment

(though Jack’s Pumpkin

Glow supports Don’t Be A

Monster, a nonprofit that

brings anti-bullying programs

to local schools).

It’s also a bit of a drive

(roughly 35 minutes one

way from Orland Park).

And my tips: Be extracareful

with the mud

following rain (but watch

your step in the dark there

regardless, especially with

children), and go an hour

or so after the opening

time if you can. Lines

seem to be at a peak up

front, and it’s an experience

better enjoyed at

your own pace than being

pushed through it by the

masses.

For what it’s worth:

Our pumpkin contest is

free to enter. In fact, you

can actually win some

prizes for doing it. And

it’s free entertainment for

everyone else following

the deadline (with no lines

and no mud). All you have

to do is carve out some

time for it.

POETRY IN OP

‘Morning at the Oasis’

Lin Peterson

Orland Park resident

An Ode to Local Diners

My local diner is like a

comfortable friend.

I am treated like a good

cup of coffee;

Not too sweet and never

bitter; just right.

Only twelve tables and

the food is top notch;

Hot and fast to the

table; coffee cup always

full.

We know each other by

name and keep up with

each others news

I may not know other

customer’s names, but

familiar faces surround

me like family.

My local diner lets me

order a half order when

I’m not so hungry,

mix a couple of juice

flavors together, put

extra whip cream on my

grandchildren’s chocolate

milk.

Only at a local diner

will you see a waitress

ask another table to pass

you some sweet creamers

when your table is out and

start you on a conversation

with them about

favorite flavors.

The village holds meetings

there; Friends meet

regularly before venturing

out; The Sunday crowd

knows to keep moving so

the next service can get in.

I overhear stories of

grandchildren, house

repairs, illnesses, remedies

and miracles. Tables of

patrons offer each other

travel tips, repair service

numbers and advice.

Sometimes the whole

place is in conversation

with each other

The staff will tease me,

give me a hard time in

jest, then worry if I don’t

come by for awhile and

hug me when they see me

again.

Its the place to go when

I need a friendly face and

good, mo-nonsense conversation.

I always leave with a

full stomach and a full

heart.

Before and after participating

in the liturgies

we visited a number of

historical sites, and one of

these was the concentration

camp that is famous

for the evil perpetuated

there.

Walking through Birkenau

there was a sense

of deep quiet. We were

standing on a place where

evil showed its face in the

banality and efficiency of

a killing machine.

We walked along the

victims were unloaded

and sent to the death for

the “sin” of being Jewish.

that within hours of

this flower growing. I took

that, even in the midst of

evil, something beautiful

can grow. I believe this

with all my heart.

Life is a battle between

life and death, beauty and

desolation. Spring and

autumn remind us of this

truth.

Already the leaves are

beginning to turn, and

soon the foliage of the

trees will radiate with an

abundance of colors. The

reds and orange that break

actually a calling card of

‘A Friend—

Anytime!’

Susanne Cabrini Marie

Orland Park resident

When you really need

an ear,

Is there someone there

to hear?

Or are your pals all too

busy—

Chasing money, in a

tizzy?

Sometimes we leave

messages on their

phones,

Trying to disguise our

desperate tones.

Isn’t it funny how when

all is well,

They gather around

you, thinking you’re

swell?

Who can you turn to in

times of stress—

When your life seems

like a sorry mess?

There is a great friend

waiting in heaven

above,

A Man who wants to

give you all of His love.

Talk to Jesus out loud or

in silent prayer.

He’s always with you,

anytime, anywhere!

Remember to thank

Him for all that is good;

And, reach out to others

in your neighborhood.

Tell people about Jesus—praise

and spread

the Word;

And, know that your

prayers are always,

always heard!

Love and laughs highlight Orland Township’s Senior Dating Game

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

Whether subscribing to

the idea that opposites attract

or seeking a soulmate

with similar interests, local

bachelors and bachelorettes

put their hearts

on the line during Orland

Township’s annual Senior

Dating Game.

The event, held at Orland

Chateau on Thursday,

Oct. 3, offered fun for

contestants and audience

members alike, as each

bachelor asked three bachelorettes

a series of often

humorous questions to see

who would win his heart.

Before the show, patrons

enjoyed pizza, salads and

desserts. Raffles also added

to the excitement.

Marie Ryan, Orland

Township’s Senior Services

coordinator, enjoyed

seeing audience members

and contestants share a

laugh during the fun-filled

evening.

“I love this, because it

brings laughter to everybody,”

Ryan said. “You

can hear the laughter.

Everyone needs to laugh

more, and this fits the bill.

It’s so much fun.”

Ryan noted that love

connections have been

made through past Senior

Dating Game events, and

she was hopeful that this

year also would lead to

contestants being struck

by Cupid’s arrow, as many

of them expressed shared

values during a casting

call which was held back

in August.

“When we did the audition,

everybody wanted

somebody honest, loyal

and funny — the men and

the women — so that was

unique,” Ryan said. “They

all had that in common.”

The game unfolded in

four rounds with Tom

Cunningham, Roy Vanoffelen,

Art Stein and Mike

Mallon as the bachelors,

and Geri Burek, Karen

Fishella, Susan Egan, Deb

Tanzer, Barbara Parisi, Sue

Ackmann, Jeanette Fox,

Carolyn Charz, Annette

Linn, Denise Ziemba, Susan

Valentino and Mary

Bruhn as the bachelorettes.

The bachelors — who

could not see the bachelorettes

seated on the other

side of a curtain — asked

such questions as, “What

condiment best describes

your personality,” “What

makes you laugh” and

“What is your favorite

song by Elvis Presley.”

Ziemba, a Palos Hills

resident, was hoping that

her humor would help her

win the big date, as that is

“just how she rolls.”

When asked what she

is looking for in a man,

she responded, “That’s

the million-dollar question.

Just somebody who’s

loving, caring, nice, trustworthy,

fun — what everybody

wants.”

Mallon also showcased

his personality during the

competition by dressing

up as Cliff Booth (Brad

Pitt) from the film “Once

Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

“With Halloween coming

up, and this is supposed

to be a fun event,

instead of the same old suit

that everybody else wears

I wanted to do something

different,” said Mallon,

who also brought a squirt

gun as a prop. “This is going

to be fun.”

In the end, Mallon and

Ziemba proved to be a

match during Round 4,

rounds.

The winning couples

will all travel by limousine

that also will include dancing

or other entertainment.

Orland Township Supervisor

Paul O’Grady said he

loves how the annual Senior

Dating Game brings everyone

together for a night

of good fun, while raising

money for scholarships for

local high school seniors.

“I think it’s a natural

extension of our community

events for our

seniors for them to get

together and make some

love connections, hopefully,”

O’Grady said.

“It’s a huge hit. It’s very

entertaining, and the people

really enjoy it. I want

to also thank our community

and all the sponsors

who really give to make

these events possible.

The event benefits the

Orland Township Scholarship

Foundation, which

finds seniors paying it

backward and forward to

the next generation, and I

love that.”

fun with its annual Dancing

Arts and Drafts 2019 brings together quality crafts

9

Amanda Del Buono,

Freelance Reporter

Similar to the craft beer

and handmade creations

at the focus of the Orland

Park Area Chamber

of Commerce’s annual

Arts and Drafts event, this

year’s event focused on

quality over quantity.

The third annual event

took place Sept. 28 at Orland

Park Crossing.

For the first time, Arts

and Drafts was a one-day

event, which allowed the

chamber to bring higher

quality vendors and entertainment,

said Joyce Bibeau,

vice president of the

chamber.

“This year, we focused

all of our efforts onto one

day,” she said. “I think it’s

better for the vendors and

brewers. We’re also able

to have a bigger band because

it’s one day.”

The chamber’s annual

Arts and Drafts festival

brings together local brewers

as well as arts and

crafts vendors, highlighting

local culture and businesses.

“It’s local craft beer and

local craft arts brought together

and showcased to

the community,” said Kyle

Treglown, chamber board

member and co-chairperson

of the Arts and Drafts

committee.

This year, the event

paired beer and art even

further, with several vendors

offered beer-related

crafts.

For example, Jolietbased

cousins Megan and

Michele Galbraith debuted

their Bibbity Bobbity Beer

& Things line on Sept. 29.

The collection features

beer-inspired household

items, such as houseplants

in beer cans, key chains and

magnets made with beer

bottle tops, totes and more.

“We’re cousins who

craft,” Michele said.

“We’re hoping to get some

experience and sell a few

things.”

Megan added, “This specific

craft show is also a

beer-tasting event, so this

is the perfect place to debut

our collection. ... I’m

excited for everybody to

see everything we’ve been

working so hard on for the

past three months, and I

hope everybody is as excited

about it as we are.”

Lemont’s Kate Quinn,

owner of Soaps by Abby

and More, was another

beer-influenced crafter, offering

craft soaps made

with beer.

“I love beer, and I figured

since it’s a craft show people

would appreciate the

quality of what I have to

offer,” she said. “The beer

adds a little creaminess [to

the soaps]; it’s not just a

novelty.”

Despite the schedule

change, Arts and Drafts

grows with each passing

year, and this year was no

different. The 2019 event

featured a total of 48 beer,

craft and food vendors,

which compares with

2018’s 33 vendors.

“Each year, we’re growing

with more and more

artists and brewers,” said

Kurt Lindemann, chamber

board member and cochairperson

of the Arts and

Drafts committee.

Lindemann and

Treglown are colleagues,

friends and beer enthusiasts.

As such, in planning

the event, they focused on

Johnny Meeks pours beer samples the afternoon of Sept. 28 during the Orland Park Area Chamber of Commerce’s

Arts and Drafts event at Orland Park Crossing. Photos by Adam Jomant/22nd Century Media

showcasing high-quality

craft brewers.

“This year, we have

13 breweries serving 23

unique beers,” Lindemann

said. “Kyle and I

are beer nerds. We know

what beers are popular and

what’s not.”

Tinley Park’s Hailstorm

Brewing Company has

participated in Arts and

Drafts every year. Bartenders

Dan DeCola and

Jon Rodeck said the brewery

likes to be present at

community events to interact

with both regular customers

and new acquaintances.

“It’s a fun way to get

away from the brewery and

see people out and about,”

said DeCola. “It’s a chance

to meet the friends we

haven’t made yet.”

Rodeck added that the

brewery also supports local

arts, which makes Arts

and Drafts even more appealing

for them.

Although most brewers

are within a 10-mile radius

of Orland Park, Lindemann

and Treglown were

excited to welcome Michigan-based

brewery Arclight

Brewing Company

for the first time this year.

Dave Coyle, owner of

Arclight, said that the

company does business

in the area despite being

based in Michigan. So, the

event not only gives the

company exposure to potential

new customers but

also gives Coyle a chance

to meet his current Illinoisbased

clientele.

“Kurt’s a regular fan,

and comes up to the brewery

when he can,” Coyle

said. “He called me up and

said he’s doing this event

and there’s going to be a

small number of brewers

but good brewers, and they

are. They are top-notch.”

Quick Bites

Tailgate time: A look at the area’s most interesting game-day options

Staff Report

Fact: It’s almost impossible

to truly enjoy a sporting event

without at least a little snack or

something to drink.

And whether fans are going

out or having friends over for the

big game, the southwest suburbs

offer no shortage of interesting

options. What follows are a few

of the area’s biggest attentiongrabbers

this football season.

Totchos: The un-nachos

Stoney Point Grill, 19031 Old

LaGrange Road in Mokena

What would happen if potatoes

and nachos got together

and had a love child? It might

end up being something akin

to totchos, Stoney Point Grill’s

take on two beloved tailgate appetizers.

Totchos replace the triangular

tortillas with tater tots, then

smother them in sour cream,

bacon bits, provolone cheese,

garlic and taco seasoning, all

served in a skillet for an easy,

shareable snacking during a

Bears game, where customers

can order the Frankensteinian

creation for $8.

Gameday specials include

Miller buckets, boneless wings,

pull pork potato skins, Buffalo

chicken nachos and an assortment

of drinks.

The Bomber: A unique take on

the cheese dog

Bailey’s Bar & Grill, 17731 Oak

Park Ave. in Tinley Park

Most Chicago-area folks are

always game to indulge in a Chicago-style

hot dog.

But most probably have not

had The Bomber, which is sure

to take taste buds to a whole new

dimension.

The hot dog is by no means

ordinary.

Owner Tamir Bailey said customers

certainly cannot find it

anywhere else, because it was

concocted nine years ago in their

kitchen.

“This is our creation,” she

said.

The Bomber is sliced down the

middle and filled with American

cheese, then wrapped in bacon

and deep-fried. Tomato, onion,

relish, sport peppers and cucumber

complete the hot dog.

“It’s pretty filling,” Tamir said.

“You have just one, and then

you’re good.”

The meal is $6 and comes with

a side of fries. On Sundays when

the Bears play, the hotdog by itself

is $3.50.

Reporting by Jacquelyn Schlabach,

Contributing Editor

Ribs: St. Louis-style

Bear Down Barbecue, 20857

South LaGrange Road in Frankfort

Frankfort’s Bear Down Barbecue

has two main claims to fame:

the Chicago Bears memorabilia

lining its walls and the St. Louisstyle

spare ribs that earned it a

spot on WGN-TV’s “Chicago’s

Best BBQ” list in 2017.

Owner Rashid Riggins said

the restaurant only purchases

premium ribs and seasons them

with a special dry rub blend before

they go into the smoker. A

live fire grill gets the meat “nice

and crispy on the outside, while

completely tender on the inside,”

he said.

Diners have the option to have

the ribs slathered with the restaurant’s

signature barbecue sauce,

or just dry rub with the sauce on

the side.

“The rub definitely has sweetness

to it, because of the brown

sugar, but it’s a very complex

flavor, and it has 21 different

seasonings and spices in it,” Riggins

said.

Reporting by Nuria Mathog, Contributing

Editor

The Totchos at Stoney Point Grill in Mokena combine potatoes and

the concept of nachos, and can be purchased on game days for $8.

Loaded Bloody Mary: A noon

starter

Coom’s Corner Sports Grill in

1225 E. 9th St. in Lockport

The bold Loaded Bloody Mary

at Coom’s Corner Sports Grill is

designed to incite passionate reactions.

Priced at just $6, the concoction

is prepared from scratch,

with tomato juice and the restaurant’s

special homemade spices,

along with pickles, olives, sausage

and cheese on a stick, as

well as a generous sprinkling of

celery salt along the rim.

This vodka-based cocktail has

a kick and, according to owner

Candy McWilliams, it pairs well

with any of the items on the

menu, especially a burger.

“It’s not your typical, out-ofthe-jar

Bloody Mary mix,” Mc-

Williams said. “It is bold and

unlike anything you will find at

another bar.”

Sundays are dedicated to the

Loaded Bloody Mary, and it attracts

a large tailgate crowd.

“We sell a lot of these on

the weekends, especially when

guests come in to watch the

games,” she said. “This drink

is not for those who don’t like

spicy things, but if you want

something hardy with a strong

flavor, it meets all the requirements.”

Reporting by Abhinanda Datta, Assistant

Editor

Game-day gathering

Pelican Harry’s Sports Grill,

14807 Founders Crossing in

Homer Glen

One place that pulls out all the

stops for Sunday games is Pelican

Harry’s Sports Grill.

The Homer Glen bar and eatery

features the likes of a free

halftime buffet, a Bears jersey

giveaway and Sunday specials to

keep fans of the Monsters of the

Midway happy.

For Pelican Harry’s co-owners

Jim Dobek and John Hoffenkamp,

it is a football season

tradition spanning more than a

decade.

“We’ve had chicken Parmesan,

a taco bar; it varies,” Hoffenkamp

said of the buffet,

which typically also includes

a pasta and side salad. “It’s not

beans and weenies. Each buffet

is different.”

As for the jerseys, patrons may

be surprised when they come in

for a game, with some of them

autographed.

And for ravenous fans wanting

a bite outside of halftime,

the Sunday specials include tacos;

domestic pitchers, pints and

buckets; and Bloody Marys.

“We usually have a full

house,” Hoffenkamp said of the

game-day crowd. “Usually, every

seat is taken. We extended

our patio, and that has been full

every game. It’s usually a pretty

great atmosphere.”

Reporting by Thomas Czaja, Senior

Editor

Pizza in the parking lot? The

ultimate party

Wooden Paddle, 212 Stephen St.

in Lemont

There is nothing wrong with

ordering pizza to feed the party.

But what if that pizza instead

was being made in a wood-fired

oven, at the party, and it did

not require any effort or further

cleanup?

Well, Wooden Paddle —

which started in Orland Park before

its move to Lemont — has

made a name for itself in the

mobile pizza oven business. And

while it would be a first, the business

is not opposed to the idea of

catering a tailgate.

“Jon’s a huge Bears fan,” coowner

Brianna Cowan said of

her husband. “We haven’t catered

a game before — we usually

do weddings — but we’d

definitely be up for it.”

Provided money is no object

for the game-day festivities, of

course.

Movies have taught us you

can’t put a price tag on the biggest

party of the season. But

Wooden Paddle can.

And the oven and effort will

cost fans a $1,500 food and beverage

minimum, $395 for setup,

10 percent for sales tax and another

15 percent for gratuity on

non-wedding weekends.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

10 Questions

With Katie Fleming

Katie Fleming is a senior

at Sandburg, She’s on

the girls golf team and

recently helped the Eagles

to claim the SouthWest

Suburban Conference

Blue Division title.

You shot an 87 and

helped the team to

win the SWSC Blue

title on Oct. 1 at Silver

Lake. How do you

think the season went

as a whole?

I think we’ve done very

well. We are always connected

as a team and that

allows us to play very well.

How long have you

been playing golf?

I first started playing my

sophomore year of high

school. My older brother,

Dan [a 2013 Sandburg

grad] plays and he’s the

one that got me into it.

When I first started playing,

the girls were really

supportive. I practiced a

lot indoors during the winter

to get better.

Do you play any other

sports?

No. I did volleyball my

freshman year. But then I

switched to golf full time

as a sophomore because

they are in the same season.

I love golf.

What is it about the

sport of golf that

makes it the game for

you?

It’s a lifelong skill. I can

play it when I’m older.

Also, it’s based on integrity

and that’s a lifelong

virtue too. Plus, the girls

on the team are really cool

too.

What have you

learned from Sandburg

girls golf coach, Todd

Allen?

I’ve learned to stay mentally

focused and to focus

on each shot. Also, to just

push through.

Do you do anything

to pump yourself up

before you go play?

Yes. I have a warmup

song, a dance song. It’s

called “Everyday” by

A$AP Rocky. It helps get

my mind off of bad shots

and gets something else in

my head.

What is your spirit

animal and why?

A golden retriever. Because

they are playful, like

me. I always want to have

a good time.

If you could meet any

living person, who

would it be and why?

Tiger Woods. Yes, because

he’s a golfer. But

he’s also a trailblazer for

men’s and women’s golf.

Do you plan on playing

golf in college?

Wherever I go, I plan to

Randy Whalen/22ND

CENTURY MEDIA

play at least club golf. I’d

like to play on an actual

school team but it’s difficult.

That would be an

awesome experience. But

no matter what I’d be excited

to continue to play.

What’s the best thing

about being an athlete

at Sandburg?

Everyone is always

there to help academically

and athletically. So, Sandburg

really understands

and is there when you need

them. Plus, the team has a

great group of girls.

Interview conducted by

Freelance Reporter Randy

Whalen

AREA SPORTS ROUNDUP

Jacobs and Irish teammates

honored during ND game

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

By running track and

cross country for the University

of Notre Dame,

Sandburg running star

Dylan Jacobs never figured

he was going to be

as huge as Fighting Irish

football players.

But on Saturday, Oct.

5, for a few minutes, Jacobs

was larger than life

at Notre Dame Stadium

during the Irish’s 52-0 win

over Bowling Green. He

and some of his teammates

were honored and received

some big-time adulation

on the big screen.

In March, Jacobs, Edward

Cheatham, Samuel

Voelz and Yared Nuguse

won the distance medley

relay indoor national championship.

It was the Irish’s

second DMR national title

and the track program’s

fourth national title.

State power H-F scores early, often vs. Sandburg

Matt Cizek

Freelance Reporter

Coming off a difficult

loss to Lockport, Sandburg

needed a strong performance

against state power

Homewood-Flossmoor to

get back on track. It never

materialized.

The Vikings, stinging

from their previous week’s

loss to Lincoln-Way East,

scored on their first two

possessions, and Sandburg

committed four first-half

turnovers en route to a

28-0 halftime deficit that

would eventually result in

a 34-0 defeat.

“Obviously, you want to

start any game in a positive

manner,” Sandburg

coach Scott Peters said.

“You don’t want to get in a

hole early against [Homewood-Flossmoor].”

Yearly rivals in the

Southwest Suburban Conference,

the Eagles haven’t

defeated the Vikings since

2011 and have been outscored

by an average of

nearly 35 points a game

during that span.

Sandburg almost had a

little luck go its way. On

the Vikings’ initial offensive

position, a mad

2. Sean Allen, HF RB - 6 carries for 66 yards, 1 TD.

scramble occurred after

the ball was fumbled

while being run into the

end zone. Homewood-

Flossmoor ultimately recovered

to take an early

6-0 lead less than 3 minutes

into the contest.

“From what I’ve been

told, the tape clearly

shows that the ball was out

of bounds,” Peters said. “It

is what it is. In the grand

scheme of things, it’s not

going to change the outcome

of the game.”

Following a Sandburg

punt, Homewood-Flossmoor

scored on a 35-yard

touchdown run by Sean

Allen that gave it all the

momentum the Vikings

would need.

“They’ve got some special

athletes,” Peters said.

“When that’s the case,

you’ve got to try to play the

perfect game against them.”

An interception by Brian

Funk gave Sandburg

their best chance at turning

the momentum back in its

favor. However, two plays

later, the Vikings would

tackle running back Luke

Stefanos in the end zone

for a safety to increase

their lead to 15-0.

Homewood-Flossmoor’s

William Pauling

scored two more touchdowns

on a 5-yard TD

run and 40-yard reception

with less than two minutes

remaining in the first half.

They would round out the

scoring in the third quarter

on a 12-yard TD pass from

Dominick Jones to Myles

Walton.

Mike Bosco, shown against Lockport in a game earlier in the season, and his

teammates found yards hard to come by at Homewood-Flossmoor on Friday, Oct. 4.

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

With the Vikings getting

five interceptions,

two each from linebacker

Lewis Owens and safety

Michael Bell, the Eagles

had a difficult time getting

on track offensively.

“Their corners made a

couple of nice plays,” Peters

said. “They had some

nice pressure with some of

their stunts.”

Coming off their first loss

of the year, a 28-14 defeat

at the hands of the Associated

Press’s No. 1 ranked

Lincoln Way East in a

battle of 8A heavyweights,

the fourth-ranked Vikings

were looking to rebound

themselves after being held

to only eight second half

yards while giving up 270

yards on the ground.

Though the result was

not as intended, Peters was

pleased with the effort.

“We felt like we completed

well,” he said. “I

felt like thy played hard,

sometimes [Homewood-

Flossmoor] just took advantage

of the opportunities

they had.”

With the loss, the Eagles

(2-4, 0-2) are left on the

brink of playoff elimination.

It would be their

fourth consecutive season

missing football in November.

“We’re not really focused

on that,” Coach Peters

said. “We don’t look at

it as ‘What’s the end of the

season going to look like?’

We just try to take it one

day at a time.”

Our staff’s predictions for the top games in Week 7

Blowouts are in the air. The average margin of

victory in games involving our local teams was

25.9 points – and that included Andrew’s thrilling

four-point win over Bradley. This week, it could

be worse.

Injured Celtics can’t keep up with Mustangs

JON DEPAOLIS, Freelance Reporter

For 24 minutes, the Providence

Catholic football team

matched St. Rita step for step.

But after two injuries to key

Providence starters to start the

second half Friday, Oct. 4, the

Mustangs were able to capitalize

en route to a 22-0 Week 6 victory

on Friday, Oct. 4 in New Lenox.

The Celtics injuries were to

starting quarterback Kevin Conway

and defensive back Max

Pignotti – the latter of whom required

assistance from paramedics.

“It was definitely different,”

Providence coach Mark Coglianese

said of the second half

troubles. “Those are both the

leaders on both sides of the ball

for us. That’s not an excuse. [St.

Rita] played well, and [Mustangs

running back Kaleb Brown] ran

hard. He was definitely the difference.”

After being held to just 31

yards in the first half, Brown

exploded in the second half to

end the day with 149 yards on

23 carries and two touchdowns

– the first of which came two

plays after the Pignotti injury.

Brown took a handoff and

sprinted 35 yards for the score

with 8:37 left in the third quarter.

The Mustangs missed the

extra point attempt but took the

6-0 lead.

Then, after the Mustangs got

on the board again with a 24-

yard field goal, Brown effectively

iced the game with a 9-yard

touchdown run with 4:55 left in

the fourth quarter to make it 16-

0.

St. Rita defensive back Kyle

James – who also had two interceptions

in the game for the

Mustangs – added on a late score

with a 25-yard touchdown run.

Offensively, the Celtics

couldn’t muster much in the

second half after Conway (3-of-

8, 25 yards, INT) left the game

with a leg injury.

Providence running back Aaron Vaughn tries to shake off a St. Rita defender during the Celtics’ 22-0 loss Friday, Oct. 4.

“Kevin hurt something right

before the half,” Coglianese

said. “He came out in the second

half and didn’t feel right.

He got it checked out. We’re not

sure exactly, but it [might be]

some type of sprain. We’ll have

to see.”

Ex-gymnast Giglio dives into her new sport

2

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

We will never know.

When then-sophomore

Maddie Giglio took third

place in the state in the Illinois

High School Association

state girls gymnastics

meet in 2018, that set

a two-year window for her

to try to win a state championship.

In an area that is starved

for gymnastics success,

this could have been an

exciting run. The Sandburg

athlete had a chance

to be just the second state

champion in her school’s

history.

But we will never know

if that would have happened.

In the middle of her

high school career, she left

gymnastics to devote her

training full-time to diving.

It is a sport in which

she has enjoyed success,

but not to the extent of finishing

third in the state.

A hard decision came

down to a simple choice.

“It was really tough,”

Giglio said of leaving

gymnastics. “It just came

down to what sport would

lead me to more success

for the future. I’m hoping

to dive in college, and I

needed to put more time

into that.”

According to scholar

shipstats.com, there were

84 NCAA teams competing

in gymnastics two

seasons ago and no NAIA

teams. According to bere

cruited.com, the NCAA

and NAIA have 560 swimming

and diving teams.

After missing the state

competition in diving in

2017 and finishing 21st

last year, Giglio said her

goal is a top-16 finish this

year and she worked hard

to try to get there.

During the summer, she

worked with the Windy

City team based at the

University of Illinois at

Chicago.

“I picked up a lot of little

tips here and there, and a

lot of repetition,” she said.

“I would be consistently

do each dive over and over

again.’’

Giglio had a chance

to trade dives with some

strong athletes on Friday,

Oct. 4, at the Jane Caliendo

Invitational at Sandburg.

She placed fourth with a

370.30.

Sandburg diving coach

Leslie Fasel has marveled

at Giglio’s progress the

past three seasons.

“Maddie started as a

sophomore diver with a

very strong gymnastics

background leading her to

be quickly successful in

her first year,” Fasel said.

“She missed the state competition

by a narrow margin

and came back very

determined her junior year

to compete for that opportunity

to qualify for state.

She had a great first showing

at the state meet and

now has set new goals to

make it her best season finish

as a senior.”

Fasel noticed a new

sense of confidence in Giglio

heading into this season.

“I am excited for her,

as she is very talented and

not many girls have the

opportunity to qualify for

state competition in two

different sports.” Fasel

said. “I see her reaching

her goal and look forward

to her diving in one of the

colleges that are pursuing

her to be part of their

team. Maddie is an excellent

role model for our

girls that are trying the

sport of diving for the first

time in high school.”

Giglio said she has “lots

of options” on the college

front, and has made visits

to Illinois, Lake Forest

and Toledo.

She has grown fond of

the sport over the years.

“I love it because there

is always a new dive to

learn and there is always

something new to try,”

she said. “There is always

something to improve.

You may think you

know it all, but you really

don’t.”

JEFF VORVA/22ND

CENTURY MEDIA

A FEW NOTES ABOUT

SANDBURG’S GIRLS

SWIMMING TEAM

1. Best finishes

Claire Lawlor and

Sonja Korallus has

the best state finish

in Sandburg history

with Lawlor posting

a fourth-place

showing in the

100-yard freestyle

in 2015 and Korallus

taking fourth in

the 200 individual

medley in 1988.

2. Hoping to be back

Jenna Falsey

(above) and Maddie

Giglio are

hoping for a return

trip to state. Falsey

finished 35th in the

200 IM as a sophomore

last year and

Giglio took 21st.

3. Top diver

The top state diver

in Sandburg history

was Anna Girlich,

who placed seventh

in 2014.

Jeff Vorva

Sports Editor

Food for thought for

those who aren’t

very hungry.

In the Oct. 3 sports section

of The Orland Park

Prairie, Sandburg golf

star Max Farley used the

word “indubitably” in a

quote.

You generally don’t see

a $50 word like that in

the sports section, and it

is rarer to see in used in a

quote from a high school

athlete.

But Farley is a rare

athlete, and he indubitably

knows a bunch of

other big words as he was

named a National Merit

Semifinalist this year. He

has earned other academic

awards in his career.

So, we know he is good

on the course and we

know he is an ace in the

classroom. Is there anything

else he can do?

Well, back in 2011,

this kid was making

waves in music. I was at

a Orland School District

135 School Board meeting,

and some younger

students performed for

the crowd. Max was a

third-grader from Centennial

School and played

guitar, while his partner,

Alex Miller, sang. They

performed an original,

yes, original song called

“We Must Go On” and

then rocked the place with

“Twist and Shout.”

Board Member Tom

Cunningham went on the

record and said that performing

an original song

like that at such a young

age was “amazing.”

I kind of wish Farley

continued showing off his

musical chops. I would

have liked him to compose

a rock tune that has a

rhyme with “indubitably.”

No rematch

Hey, remember that

wild Division-III football

game last year in which

St. Norbert beat Grinnell,

91-0?

Orland Park’s Matt

Gurgone played a big

part in the game, picking

up an interception for a

touchdown for St. Norbert

and a fumble recovery for

another score.

Another Orland Park

native, Ryan Slager, was

playing for Grinnell. He

went on to graduate as

one of the top Division-III

tacklers in history.

The two teams were

supposed to have their

rematch on Saturday, Oct.

5, but that did not happen

because Grinnell opened

the season with 38 players

and suffered 11 injuries.

Sandburg’s Max Farley is one of the best boys golfers

in the state and is a National Merit Semifinalist and had

some early success in music as a third-grader.

PHOTO SUBMITTED

So, in the interest of

safety, the school is going

to forfeit the remainder of

the season.

Pro football quote

Bears monster Khalil

Mack told the press recently

“A dog that poops

fast don’t poop for long.”

Mack has not met my

dog, Rocky. Especially

when I have to be somewhere

for a work assignment.

College football quote

After a 38-0 loss to

Michigan earlier this season,

Orland Park treasure

and Northwestern coach

Pat Fitzgerald was sick of

social media critics and

told a group of reporters

“My e-mail address is

hashtag I don’t care.’’

Well, that’s not quite an

e-mail address now, is it?

That is why we love the

guy.

Not my fault!

During brutal Week 5

of the football season, the

games my three teams

were involved in were

postponed to Saturday

because of storms.

While I was at each

game — Stagg at Andrew,

Lockport at Sandburg

and Bremen at Tinley

Park — my three teams

outscored their opponents

64-20. While Andrew won

its game, Sandburg and

Tinley Park could not take

advantage of the Vorva

Good Luck Charm when

I was away from those

games.

Never saw that before

I’ve seen a lot in football,

but I never saw this

before until Sept. 28.

In the fourth quarter

of the Bremen/TP game,

Bremen kicked off. The

Braves did not need an

onside kick, yet their

kicker booted the ball and

it went horizontal, spun

a little bit, then travelled

backward. It was recovered

for a 1-yard loss. Just

when you think you have

seen it all, you haven’t.

LISTEN UP

“It was really tough. It just came down to what sport

would lead me to more success for the future. I’m hoping

to dive in college and I needed to put more time into that.’’
