Zoning amendments recommended to allow sale of recreational pot

Village Board to

make final decision


Freelance Reporter

Residents of Glencoe

and neighboring communities

came to the Zoning

Commission meeting

on Oct. 7 to express their

sometimes impassioned

opinions on the hot button

issue of allowing recreational

cannabis dispensaries

in the village.

At the conclusion of

the three-hour meeting,

the Zoning Commission

forwarded its non-binding

recommendations to the

Village Board for the final

decision. Prior to making

its decision, the board will

accept feedback during

its public comment portion

of the meeting. The

topic will be discussed no

earlier than Nov. 21 at the

board meeting; however, it

has yet to be finalized, according

to Megan Meyer,

Assistant to the Village


“This is not our call,”

Zoning Commission

Chairman Howard Roin

emphasized at the outset.

“The primary reason is for

us to get public comment

and then make a recommendation,

which may or

may not be worth the paper

it is written on. We are being

asked how it should be

regulated if it is allowed.”

The matter was referred

to the Zoning Commission

by the Village Board following

discussions by the

Committee of the Whole

during August and September.

The B2 District

on the border of Winnetka

and the HF District off the

Edens Expressway were

submitted by the Village

Board for consideration.

The law making Illinois

the 11th state to allow recreational

marijuana was

passed during the spring

session of the General Assembly

and signed by Gov.

J.B. Pritzker and will take

effect Jan. 1. Illinois is the

first state to do it through


Local governments have

the authority to enact regulations

concerning the time

and place of sales and to

impose a local tax.

The Zoning Commission

meeting began with

a comprehensive slide

presentation by Assistant

Village Manager Sharon

Tanner, during which she

detailed the feedback from

the Village Board and the

recommendations they

were to discuss.

“It’s more restrictive

than liquor regulations but

kind of the same model,”

Village Attorney Stewart

Weiss said.

Purchase, possession

and use is limited to those

21 and older. Consumption

in public, consumption

in vehicles and home

delivery are forbidden,

Weiss said while giving a


Weiss said the board had

“no interest in on-premises

consumption” lounges and

the focus was on dispensaries

that would have a

function similar to that of

liquor stores.

Regardless of whether

or not the Village Board

legalizes recreational cannabis

dispensaries, residents

will be allowed to

purchase products at legal

dispensaries elsewhere

and consume them in their

homes. Driving under the

influence of cannabis will

be considered akin to driving

under the influence of


Although Winnetka and

Highland Park are banning

dispensaries and

craft growers, approval

for amendments to the

Northbrook zoning code

to approve a dispensary

at Skokie Boulevard and

Dundee Road were on

the Oct. 15 agenda of that

neighboring community’s

Plan Commission. Highwood

is considering a

dispensary and Wilmette

will conduct an advisory

referendum on Nov. 3,

2020. Further to the south,

there will be dispensaries

in Evanston, Skokie, Niles

and Lincolnwood.

During the public comment

session, 22 citizens

expressed their opinions

— 15 from of Glencoe,

five from Winnetka, one

from Highland Park and

one from Northfield. Most

were vehemently opposed

to recreational cannabis in

any form.

Karen Citow, a therapist

and drug and alcohol

counselor from Glencoe,

alluded to the classic motion

picture “It’s a Wonderful

Life” in predicting

dire consequences if dispensaries

are allowed.

New U.S. citizens sworn in at naturalization ceremony in Glencoe


Hilary Anderson

Freelance Reporter

The United States recently

welcomed 126 new

citizens from 40 countries,

several of whom are North

Shore residents.

The event occurred at a

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration

Services Naturalization

Ceremony held

last Thursday, Oct. 10, at

the Chicago Botanic Garden

in Glencoe.

Usually such ceremonies

are held in a federal

courthouse. It was the first

time the Chicago Botanic

Garden was declared a

federal courthouse for the

Naturalization event.

“It was such an honor

to host this Naturalization

event,” said Jean Franczyk,

president and CEO of the

Chicago Botanic Garden.

“This is a beautiful place

to celebrate new citizenship

with its diversity of

flowers and plants similar

to the diversity of the

many countries these new

citizens represent. We are

thrilled to be considered

in the same realm as many

of our National Parks that

have hosted Naturalization

ceremonies like this one.”

There was an eagerness

and happiness in the eyes

and faces of the 126 candidates

for citizenship. They

were about to achieve the

American Dream with all

its rights and responsibilities.







A movie, “The Faces

of America,” was shown

at the beginning of the

ceremony. The historical

documentary showed immigrants

from many countries

coming from abroad

to America, some through

Ellis Island and ended

with a scene of immigrants

in a boat watching as they

sailed closer to the Statue

of Liberty.

The Training Support

Center Great Lakes Color

Guard presented the colors

followed by the singing of

the National Anthem.

The Honorable Rebecca

Palimeyer, Chief Judge,

U.S. District Court for

the Northern District of

Illinois, administered the

Oath of Allegiance to the

naturalization candidates.

“What’s beautiful about

being here in this garden

is that it is a living

example of a simple notion

that diversity yields

beauty and vitality,” Palimeyer

said. “It’s this collection

of plants, flowers

and trees from all over the

world that makes the Chicago

Botanic Garden so

spectacular. It’s the diversity

of our faiths, cultures,

languages, colors and

countries of origin that

make our nation so vibrant.

I hope you remember

that it does not mean

you have left your native

culture behind. America

is not a perfect place and

needs your help to make it


Palimeyer quoted a former

president who wrote a

letter to his daughters just

before he was sworn in.

“My grandmother

helped me understand that

America is great not because

it is perfect but it

can always be made better

… and the unfinished

She continued, “Each

Glencoe resident expands education options with Empower Illinois


Libby Elliott, Freelance Reporter

When Empower Illinois president

Myles Mendoza and his

wife Carrie relocated from Castle

Pines, Co. to downtown Chicago

six years ago, the couple

faced a difficult decision.

Not satisfied with the quality

of education provided at their

local Chicago Public Schools,

The Mendozas felt they could

either pay hundreds of thousands

of dollars in private

school tuition, or subject their

three young children to rigorous

testing in hopes they’d earn

a spot at one of CPS’s selective

magnet schools.

Neither option sat well with

the Mendozas.

“We decided we were not going

to do that to our kids,” Mendoza

said. “We didn’t want them

competing to get into school.”

In the end, the Mendoza family

left the city and settled in

Glencoe — Carrie’s childhood

hometown — where high local

property taxes fund some of Illinois’s

most highly-ranked public


But more often than not, said

Mendoza, many bright, motivated

young people are stuck

in the Chicago’s chronically

underperforming public schools

and headed toward dead-end futures.

According to the Illinois State

Board of Education’s interactive

school report card, the CPS has

a drop out rate of 35.3 percent

for African-American students.

In 2017, the University of Illinois

at Chicago’s Great Cities

Institute estimated that 45 percent

of African-American men

ages 20-24 in Chicago were

both out of work and not in

“Quality education is the

number one indicator for economic

mobility,” Mendoza said.

“Every kid should have options,

especially kids with unique

learning needs. Those resources

shouldn’t only be available to

wealthier parents.”

A trained social worker, Mendoza

has devoted his 20-year

career to advocating for school

choice. Today, Mendoza oversees

Empower Illinois, one of

five Illinois scholarship granting

organizations licensed with

the authority to grant and administer

private-school tuition

scholarships to low-income

families through the state’s

landmark, bipartisan 2017 Tax

Credit Scholarship program.

One of 18 states to implement

a tax credit scholarship program,

Illinois has so far raised

$61 million for over 7,000 lowincome

children in Illinois to attend

private K-12 schools.

Under the program’s terms,

low-income and working-class

families may apply for a scholarship

to a private school of

their choice.

Individual and corporate donors

can make contributions

up to $1.3 million to qualified

SGO’s and be eligible to receive

a 75 percent state tax credit.

“Through this program, a

$1,000 donation becomes a

$4,000 donation,” Mendoza


While individual donors can

designate a specific school when

donating, corporations cannot.

Scholarships are then awarded

to families who meet the income

requirements, based on

available funds at their school

of choice.

Empower Illinois is the only

statewide SGO that serves all

schools throughout the state.

Listed among the SGO’s 400

partner schools are 13 participating

Highwood pub debuts huge

pumpkin, fundraises for

HP child care

Year after year, Tom

Garrity, a Highwood resident

and the owner of

The Toadstool Pub, noticed

that his friend, John

“Mina” Minorini bought a

massive pumpkin and displayed

it on his front lawn.

Five years ago, Minorini

offered up the gargantuan

gourd to Garrity to display

at his Highwood pub, and

Garrity couldn’t turn down

the offer.

Garrity thought that customers

would be enticed

to come in to look at the

pumpkin and take pictures.

While it was a crafty

business idea, he also

wanted to use the new attraction

for good, so Garrity

decided to have a guessing


Customers can pay

to guess how much the

pumpkin weighs.

Guesses cost $5 for one

guess, and $10 for three


The person with the

closest guess receives a

gift basket from the pub.

All of the proceeds go to

the Highland Park-based

child care center, Tri-Con.

Tri-Con Child Care

Center was established in

1971, according to its website.

Garrity became aware

of it when he started dating

his now-wife, Stephanie.

“[Supporting Tri-Con]

means a lot,” Garrity said.

“They’re a great little organization,

and they do so

much for the kids. They do

a really good job, and it’s a

great staff over there.”

More than 60 Deer Path

School District 67 board

meeting on Tuesday, Oct.

8, in search of information

regarding Principal

Tom Cardamone, whose

absence from the school

starting more than two

weeks ago has left many

unanswered questions.

Eight teachers and three

parents spoke during the

public comment section of

the meeting to voice their

support of Cardamone.

According to the teachers

who spoke, Cardamone

was escorted off school

grounds around 3:45 p.m.

of teachers, students and

parents and then placed on

“Tom entered the

Simeck said. “He looks

In response to tax credit

scholarship critics, many

who believe the program

promotes a Conservative

agenda and undermines

struggling public schools,

Mendoza insists the opposite

is true.

“It’s not like we want

to end public schools,”

said Mendoza, a self-proclaimed

Democrat. “We

want to improve them by

giving parents a choice.

Until a parent has the

power to exit, they have

no power.”

Many of Empower Illinois

public schools, according

to Mendoza. Others, he

said, are escaping unsafe

school environments.

While scholarships are

distributed annually every

43,000 kids on the waiting

list — kids, Mendoza

said, with urgent needs.

“I spoke to one mother

on Chicago’s South Side

whose son was being repeatedly

targeted by gangs

despite moving schools

twice and she feared for

his life,” he said.

Another mother was

Raiders celebrate centennial homecoming in big fashion

Submitted by NSCDS

Although wet and stormy

conditions threatened to

put a damper on North

Shore Country Day’s Centennial

Homecoming and

Reunion Weekend, it didn’t

stop about 600 alumni, parents,

students, faculty, staff,

friends and neighbors from

returning to campus Sept.

27-28 to celebrate.

Alumni from as far away

as Chile and the United

Kingdom returned to campus

with their friends and

families to reconnect with

former classmates, faculty

and staff. The oldest alumnus

in attendance was Pete

Henderson ’47, of Evanston,

and a group of alumni

from the Class of 1949

returned to celebrate their

70th reunion.

Pete Henderson’s daughter,

Murph Henderson ’83,

of Philadelphia, returned to

campus with her dad for her

own belated 35th reunion

and said she was moved by

the weekend’s events.

“There were so many

ways to gather — on the

lawn, in the Upper School,

for a tour, in a home,” she

said. “I was reminded that

the most engaging conversations

often happen with

classmates who were not

close friends in the old

days. People have chosen

fascinating paths.”

Alumni and their guests

mingled with current and

former faculty at a Friday

evening cocktail party and

opening reception for the

alumni art show in the newly

renovated Hall Library

and adjacent John Almquist

North Shore Country Day kicked off its Centennial

Homecoming weekend with an all-school pep-rally

Gallery, which had officially

reopened just hours before.

The opening Centennial

year show, which runs

through Dec. 6, features the

work of former NSCD art

teacher John Almquist and

22 alumni artists, representing

nine decades.

Meanwhile, students and

parents packed the Mac

Gym to cheer on the volleyball

teams, and food

trucks from several local

eateries offered tasty treats.

On Saturday, alumni, parents

of alumni and former

faculty gathered in the auditorium

for a special program,

featuring the world

premiere of the school’s

Centennial documentary:

“Pioneers Along the Road

— 100 Years of North Shore

Country Day School.”

Head of School Tom

Flemma also gave a school

update and acknowledged

all the past recipients of

the Francis R. Stanton ’27

Alumni Recognition.

The Stanton recognition

is given to alumni

whose lives exemplify the

school’s motto, “Live and

Serve.” The morning program

concluded with a traditional

sing-along of Gilbert

and Sullivan and other

favorite tunes. Additional

screenings of the documentary

occurred every half

hour from 1-3 p.m.

There were plenty of

activities for students and

families all day Saturday,


beginning with the Little

Raiders Field Hockey

Clinic. This yearly activity

gives children age 4

and up an opportunity to

learn the basics of the game

from NSCD players and

coaches. There were also

inflatables, face-painting,

temporary tattoos and an

assortment of lawn games

for kids of all ages.

All homecoming attendees

were invited to a barbecue

on the Upper School

Quad, featuring food from

Smoque BBQ in Chicago

and live entertainment by

Grammy-nominated artists

Liam Davis ’86 and Justin


NSCD varsity, junior

varsity and middle school

teams also celebrated oncampus

New Trier students design experiment for Fermilab

Submitted by New Trier

New Trier juniors Paul

Graham and Ellie Winkler

have spent the past year

working with a team of 15

other Chicago-area high

school students and teachers

to propose, design,

build and analyze a unique

high-energy physics experiment

for the worldrenowned

Fermi National

Accelerator Laboratory

(Fermilab) in Batavia.

Now, the students plan

to submit an article about

their findings for publication

and present at the

American Association of

Physics Teachers Winter

Meeting in Orlando this

coming January — all before

even entering their

senior year of high school.

Graham and Winkler

became interested in highenergy

physics as freshmen

after visiting New

Trier’s Academic Assistance

Center, an on-site

tutoring center staffed

mostly by retired teachers.

In the spring of 2018, AAC

tutor Nathan Unterman installed

a detector for students

to learn about cosmic

rays, the high-energy

protons and atomic nuclei

that rain down on the earth

from outside the solar system.

“I think that particle

physics and astrophysics

really appeal to me

because looking at what

makes up the universe on

the tiny scale and on the

really large scale, I just

think that’s super fascinating

and mysterious,”

Winkler said. “I think as

of right now that’s what I

want to do with my life.”

The duo continued participating

in research and

contributing to shared data

as they transitioned to New

Trier’s Winnetka Campus

last fall, when they began

running feasibility studies

far is nothing short of amazing.”

from the Tower Building

on that campus. Soon after,

Unterman introduced them

to a group of Chicago-area

students and teachers from

Glenbrook North, Downers

Grove South, Naperville

Central, Ida Crown,

Rochelle Zell and the University

of Illinois at Chicago.

By December, the students

joined forces to

further their studies and

design an experiment

for Fermilab. The teachers

guided the students

through the process of feasibility

study, filing a formal

proposal, execution,

analysis and reporting, and

the experiment was approved

in March 2019.

City Girl Confessions

Knocking out the scary bits

Kelly Anderson

Contributing Columnist

It’s the most wonderful

time of year ... for me.

I am positively

delighted by Halloween

and all of its orange-andblack

spooky splendor.

I’ve been this way since

I was a kid, poring over

costume ideas and scouting

haunted houses while

immersing myself in scary

books and movies. A

witch’s hat has permanent

residence on my shelf.

So it should come as no

surprise that my 4-yearold

pointed to a photo of a

terrifying grim reaper and

said, “I want that costume

for Halloween.”

Now normally, I would

be all for my kids wearing

a costume of their own

choosing. But this one was

a bit too frightening even

for me, an actual adult, to

consider. The good news

is that she opted for the

second choice costume

on her list: a tomato (her

favorite food).

But all of this talk got

me thinking about scary

things, particularly the act

of being scared.

You see, the 4-year-old

that was favoring grim

reapers also learned to

ride a bike this past week.

And if you have ever

taught a child to ride a

bike you know this one

simple truth: you will fall

down a lot.

We practiced all summer

long, gliding on

a bike with the pedals

removed, working on

balance. We practiced

to and from the bus. We

practiced on sunny days

and rainy ones, too. But

then the falls started coming:

falling while turning,

falling while practicing

a quick stop or start,

falling while just being a

bit clumsy at something

new. I had to coax her to


“But I’m scared,” she


Truthfully, I could see

why she felt that way —

concrete stings, training

wheels are a lot more

stable, and the future is

unknown. Being scared

is openly admitting that

you are curious about the

future, and all of the good

and bad ways that it can

form you.

So what happened

next? She took some deep

breaths and whispered,

“Confidence, confidence”

(this is our secret pep talk,

a mantra we can say when

we’re scared). Then she

hopped on the bike and

took off. I watched her

legs maneuver the pedals

and the wind catch her

hair. I swear my heart

soared up and out into the


Her Halloween costume

arrived later that day:

round red tomato with a

leafy green cap. It was

hilariously oversized and

she insisted on wearing it

during dinner: small tomato

girl in a big wooden

chair. That moment

was silly and fun. Yet I

remembered who she was

on the street mere minutes

ago: the brave girl who

kept pedaling, even after

the botched attempts, even

after the sting of concrete

on her knee. Even when

she admitted that fear was


October is most certainly

the time of year to

relish in the spooky stuff.

As we seek a good scare,

I like to remember the fragility

of that emotion —

it’s big, it’s little, it’s here,

it’s gone, it’s over. We

hold the power to knock

out the scary bits in our

way, sometimes on bikes,

sometimes as humans and

even dressed as tomatoes.

Happy Halloween.

other residents, told the

for 38 years, and this will

hurt the village as a family

community,” John Lyons


Sacred Heart School

Board President J.D. Byrnes,

of Winnetka, and

Tim Drehkoff, of Northfield,

who also is on the

board at Sacred Heart, expressed

fears for the safety

of children at the grammar

school if a dispensary is

permitted to operate in the

B2 District bordering Winnetka.

“There will be a huge

demand for this,” Drehkoff

said, forecasting the

impact of a Glencoe dispensary

to that of the Rivers

Casino in Des Plaines,

which has the biggest daily

attendance of any gambling

outlet in Illinois.

“I don’t think this is appropriate

for Glencoe,”

said Kevin Campbell, of

Highland Park, the Glencoe

Chamber of Commerce’s

presiding officer.

Alex Sokol, of Glencoe,

succinctly expressed the

minority view.

“I sense a lot of hysteria,”

he said. “The law

would not allow public

consumption. B2 already

has a giant Binny’s (liquor

store) and people aren’t

sitting outside drinking.

Driving under the influence

of cannabis would be

the same as driving under

the influence of alcohol.”

Following the public

comment session, the six

members of the commission

expressed their opinions.

Roin called for consideration

of the B1 downtown

district as a cannabis dispensary

site in addition to

the B2 District and the HF

District that were included

in Tanner’s presentation

with staff recommendations.

“I’m 66 years old and

when I was back in high

school at New Trier, marijuana

was readily available,”

Roin said. “It was

then and it is now.

“I am strongly in favor

of legalizing marijuana

(for consumption by adults

over 21).”

Joining the chairman

in speaking in favor of a

dispensary was Commissioner

Scott Novack.

“I’ve heard a lot of hysteria,”

Novack said. “I

wasn’t alive during Prohibition

but I can just imagine

the hysteria then. I’ve

been to dispensaries in

California and Colorado. I

don’t subscribe to the theory

that this will ruin our

village. I don’t expect to

see drug dealers and a lot

of seedy characters come


“This is an industry that

is highly regulated, much

more so than the liquor industry.”

Responding to concerns

expressed by residents,

Weiss said there is “very

little” evidence of property

depreciation in Colorado

communities that have dispensaries.

“Every state has done

this differently,” he added.

“It’s hard to find any comparisons.”

Commissioner Alex Kaplan

said he was opposed

to cannabis anywhere in

Glencoe and asked his fellow

commissioners to vote

against submitting recommendations

to the Village


During her presentation,

Tanner pointed out that in

the HF District the Edens

Expressway and ComEd

right-of-way created natural

buffers for a cannabis

dispensary that didn’t exist

in the B2 District.

“In my opinion, HF

is the only viable area,”

Commissioner John Satter

said. “Skokie Road is

much more isolated.”

Novack made a motion

to “accept everything

from staff recommendations

that don’t pertain to

separation and distance

requirements” and it was

seconded by Sara Elasser.

Roin, Satter and Deborah

Carlson, who participated

in the meeting by telephone,

joined them in voting

in favor. Kaplan cast

a no vote. The seventh

member of the commission,

David Friedman, was


Motions for consideration

of the B2 and B1

Districts as possible dispensary

locations failed

because in each instance

the result of the voting was

a 3-3 deadlock.

“We’re punting to the

Village Board,” Roin said,

concluding the discussion.

“Just as we respect

and understand the views

of our residents and those

of our neighbors, the Village

Board takes seriously

these strong views.” glencoe

with an elevator. Neutrinos

are subatomic particles

with a much smaller

mass than that of the other

known elementary particles.

Fermilab’s Main

Injector Neutrino Oscillation

Search, or MINOS,

was designed to study the

phenomena of neutrino oscillations.

“Essentially what the

students are proposing is

to measure the cosmic ray

shielding in the MINOS

tunnel,” Unterman said.

“[Fermilab] built an access

shaft and that’s how

they got everything down

there, but that means you

have this chunk not shielded.

So, the question is,

how much does the shaft

contribute to cosmic rays

that are picked up in the

neutrino detector? As you

move downstream from

the shaft, does the number

of cosmic rays change?”

For the MUSE experiment,

the students measured

the change in cosmic

ray flux in the tunnel as

they moved downstream

from the elevator, anticipating

the change in burden

would affect the flux.

To test this hypothesis, the

students assembled three

cosmic ray detectors: one

to monitor cosmic rays

above ground as a control,

an identical detector

to measure the rate underground,

and a third to measure

the muon background

in the neutrino beam.

“What they have accomplished

so far is nothing

short of amazing,” said

Jason English, New Trier

Science Department Chair.

While access to the tunnel

was limited to students

age 18 and older, the students

still visited Fermilab

almost every week in

rotating groups, recording

data from the surface of

the tunnel as needed.

“This experiment is not

just a good PR move for

Fermilab, nor is it just a

‘gift’ of time and space

for educational purposes,”

English added. “The experiment

they are running

could add to the body of

scientific knowledge. In

fact, even a null result

would do so.”

go figure


While further analysis

is needed to verify the

group’s preliminary results,

working at Fermilab

has already heightened

their confidence in pursuing

high energy physics.

Local artists exhibit creative work at Takiff Center show


Sam Rakestraw

Freelance Reporter

On Sept. 27, the Glencoe

Park District art programs

opened a seasonal gallery

of their own, showcasing

some of the pieces students

have been working on in


The classes that instructor

Cheryl Steiger teaches

show that a person’s progress

and artistic style is

never truly the same as

someone else’s. Art mediums

included acrylic, watercolors,

charcoal and a

collection of ceramics.

During the multiple sessions

a day on Monday

through Wednesday, Steiger

teaches the district’s

drawing courses, tailoring

her attention toward each

of her students based on

their skill level, another aspect

that varies from person

to person.

“We work closely with

references and use existing

artists as influence,” she


The hope is that through

references and channeling

an artist, any artist can create

one’s own artistic path.

For example, Fredi Sage

has been in Steiger’s classes

for two years.

Sage’s artistic medium

is painting and she’s been

interested in it since 2007.

Years ago, she had painted

a couple of her sister’s

guitars, giving them more

lively skins, such as Pink

Floyd’s “Dark Side of the


Her painting that hung

on the wall at the opening

showed her channeling

of French artist Henri

Matisse’s solid colors and


“I particularly like drawing

things that have reflections

in glass,” Sage said.

Rakestraw/22nd Century


Sage’s untitled acrylic

painting has a Madelineesque

woman lounging in

a pretty blue dress. Bottles

are a motif here. Sage said

this painting is one in her

“drinking series” because

of all the bottles which she

references for shape and


Another community artist

that emphasizes reference

is Eileen Issacs. In

fact, it was Steiger and the

class which had turned her

on to it. A portrait of a man,

one of her references, hung

at the opening.

“I see this as my breakthrough

painting,” Issacs

said. “There’s an artist

named Joshua Mill, known

for his big head and eyes.

By finding an artist to reference,

I’m able to become


Another player with faces

is Diana Pasikov, though

the faces she draws have

already been seen by many.

Pasikov has her own

studio/business of creating

portraits of rock stars.

Present at the opening were

her portraits of Billy Idol

and Elton John. The Elton

picture specifically was

beautifully decorated with

3D shining beads, and had

attention to detail with the

Rocket Man’s shadow.

For Pasikov, she likes

drawing well-known characters

due to their likeness

being so iconic and unique.

“Faces are all shapes,”

Pasikov said on how she

draws such detailed renditions.

“It’s way easier to

look at art as a series of

shapes instead of complex

parts and appendages.”

Pasikov had started musician

portraits like this

when her son turned 13.

She painted his favorites

like Bruce Springsteen and

Steven Taylor.

Maddie Klein, meanwhile,

created a charcoal

face portrait that she never

thought she could do.

Klein is one of the

younger artists in the group.

She’d spent her time letting

her mind wander as she

sketches abstractly. It was

five weeks ago, when she

wanted to get into drawing

faces and Steiger was eager

to help.

“It was a lot like Michelangelo

and his sculptures.

You have to find the sculpture

(face) and bring it out

from the marble,” Klein


Today, Klein still looks

at her charcoal portrait in


One of the most precious

muses for art has been botanical

life. Steiger teaches

a class based around drawing

it, and student Susan

Moss had her first watercolor

painting of a branch

blooming with flowers of

seeds. Moss also nails the

little details, such as the

center of the flowers.

“In the future, I’d like to

move on to landscapes,”

Moss added.

Soon, maybe the flowers

themselves will become

just little details in the

grand scale of the landscape.

Moss often looks

to the Chicago Botanic

Garden in Glencoe, where

she had taken calligraphy


The ceramics on display

were practical, yet artistic,

with coffee cups, fruit

bowls, sugar bowls and in

some cases, little sculptures.

They were all made

by the ceramic and pottery


All of these pieces, plus

others, will be up through

mid-December at the Takiff

Center, 999 Green Bay

Road, Glencoe.

Northbrook chocolate shop, eatery expands beyond international chain

Erin Yarnall

Contributing Editor


Leonidas Kestekides

first made his name known

on an international stage

at the 1910 World’s Fair,

in which the Greek sweetmaker

presented his pastries

to the world and won

a bronze medal.

In the past century, his

name and his food has

spread even further as the

Leonidas chocolate brand

has expanded to more than

30 countries.

The Leonidas chain operates

more than 1,000 locations

— with more than

450 stores in Belgium and

Luxembourg and 290 in


But they have “very

few stores” in the United

States, according to Marie

Douailly, who co-owns

three locations in the Chicago

area, including one

in Northbrook, with her


Douailly first opened a

Leonidas Chocolate shop

nearly 18 years ago in Wilmette,

which closed eight

years after it opened.

She continued to open

up locations around the

Chicago area, including

one near the Magnificent

Mile, before opening up

the Northbrook shop.

“When you see a Leonidas,

they are owned by

different people, it’s not

too corporate,” Douailly, a

native of northern France,


Douailly said she was

encouraged by her husband

to open up a Leonidas because

she loved purchasing

the shop’s chocolate

when she went to visit her

family in France.

“My husband said ‘Every

time we go to France,

you run to Belgium to buy

Leonidas’ fall-special croissant sandwich ($7.75) is filled with turkey, melted brie and

cranberry sauce. Photos by Jason Addy/22nd Century Media

like 20 pounds of chocolate,’”

Douailly said.

She joked that when

they would return to the

United States, she would

eat all of the chocolate

herself instead of giving it

away as a gift, as the husband

and wife intended.

While the couple opened

up their first shop solely as

a location to sell Leonidas

chocolate, their customers

soon began to request

coffee to go along with

their sweets, and pastries

after that. From then on,

the menu kept growing to

what it is today.

“At that time, we didn’t

even have a pastry chef,”

Douailly said.

Now, they employ pastry

chef Megan McGovern,

who makes all of the

three location’s pastries at

their Evanston location.

“We try to stay very

French and stick to what

we know,” Douailly said

of the cafe’s menu. “The

idea was to make a few little

crepes, no big deal, but

this store in the last three

years exploded in food.”

Last week, a group of

22nd Century Media editors

stopped by Leonidas

Chocolate Cafe to sample

some of the food and talk

to Douailly about her shop.

We were given some of

the shop’s seasonal drinks

to start with. I sampled the

warm apple cider ($4.75),

which is served with a

flavorful cinnamon stick

and an apple ring. Two of

my colleagues went for

the pumpkin spice latte

($3.70 for a small), topped

with a heaping amount of

whipped cream.

Another seasonally inspired

choice was the fall

special croissant sandwich

($7.75). The sandwich is a

croissant, sliced horizontally

in half, filled with turkey,

melted brie and cranberry


The restaurant features

several sandwiches on

their menu, including the

croque madame ($9.45),

a traditional French sandwich

with white bread

covered in melted Swiss,

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Jackie Yau

The Loyola senior is a

member of the girls volleyball


When did you start

playing volleyball?

I started to play volleyball

in sixth grade just

for fun with my friends at

school and we would play

house leagues. And then

in eighth grade I started

to play competitive club

because I knew I wanted

play in high school and

possibly college.

What’s one thing

people don’t know

about you?

I really like to paint. I

haven’t had the time to recently

but I used to do that

a lot. I don’t usually tell

people that just because a

lot of the time I don’t get

asked about it.

If you could travel

anywhere in the

world, where would

it be?

I would want to visit

Thailand. I’ve been to China

already and I thought

that was so fun. I also

don’t know a lot about

the culture so I think that

would be interesting to

learn about.

What’s the best

part about playing


The best part of playing

volleyball is probably

building an unbreakable

bond with your team and

creating a strong team dynamic.

I love the support

you’re constantly getting

from your teammates and

we’re all working toward

the same goal together.

What’s the hardest

part about playing


The hardest part about

volleyball is miscommunication.

When my team is

feeling off, our communication

is low and we start

to fall apart on the court.

It’s frustrating but we

know how to get out of this

type of slump. Our coach

is really good at talking to

us when it’s go time, she

helps us get motivated.

If you won the lottery,

what would you do

with the money?

I would buy my family

a huge house, pay for my

college education, and buy

a Mercedes G wagon.

What’s one thing on

your bucket list?

I want to see the Northern

Lights. That would

be so sick. Or travel the

world, just take a year to

myself and travel.

What’s been your

favorite moment at


My favorite moment at

Loyola was when our volleyball

team went down to

supersectionals. We had

such a great season and it

was so fun.


22nd Century Media File


If you could play

another sport, what

would it be?

I would either swim or

play basketball. I used to

play both of those sports. I

really loved them both but

I loved volleyball more.

I was pretty good at basketball.

Swimming was a

lot of work but I loved the


What do you feel

is your greatest


My greatest strength

would probably be my

independence. I like to be

adventurous and outgoing

and do something out

of the status quo. I don’t

really care what people

think or have to say about

me, because at the end of

the day I know who I am

and I love who I am. My

true friends and family

will also be there for me

unconditionally. I love being

able to express myself

honestly and not cover

things up about myself.

By being able to be true to

myself I am able to be true

to others.

clear wasn’t what Thomas

envisioned when he took

the snap from center.

“I was going to throw a

wide out but I dropped the

snap (and nearly lost the

football),” he said. “Owen

did a great job of getting

behind the defense.”

Perrion McClinton,

whose move to wide receiver

from starting quarterback

coincided with

Thomas’ promotion to first

string, was the Ramblers’

most productive receiver

with 41 yards on three

catches. Mangan hauled

down three for 35 yards

and Brownlee grabbed

three for 15 yards.

“I’m getting a lot more

comfortable,” said Thomas,

who showed an improvement

in transitioning

to carrying the football

when running opportunities

arose. In addition to

rushing for the touchdown

he ran for a two-point conversion.

“I have an offensive line

in front of me that’s the best

in the state and that makes

it a lot easier to get comfortable,”

Thomas added.

Van Zelst was another

major contributor. In addition

to connecting on the

long field goal, the junior

kicked all six of his extra

point attempts, averaged

34 yards on two punts and

52.1 yards on eight kickoffs.

For good measure during

the drive for the fourth

touchdown, Van Zelst ran

17 yards for a first down

on a fake punt in a fourthand-eight

situation at the

Loyola 27.

“Nate can move,” Holecek

said. “He has a lot

of talent and it’s not just

the talent — it’s the character.

You couldn’t find a

steadier personality to be

a kicker. He never gets rattled.

He’s cool, calm and

methodical. He’s like he’s

30-years-old.” sports

Defense leads New Trier to win

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

New Trier has been

waiting for a game like


All season, the talk had

been about how this year’s

quad was young and inexperienced

at the varsity

level — which it was —

and that the team had been

waiting for that inexperience

to turn into experience

that will help them

win games.

It seems as if the tide is

turning after the Trevians

traveled to Evanston to

face heated rival Evanston

and walked out with a 31-7

rout of the host team Friday,

Oct. 11.

“I was hoping this would

happen would happen earlier

in the season with our

youth, but we needed a

game like last week to get

a confidence boost,” New

Trier coach Brian Doll

said. “Our confidence got

back this week in practice,

guys were loose.

“Defensively, we were

pretty dominant up front.

They just kept coming after

them. We haven’t had

that much pressure on a

quarterback all season, we

just let it looks tonight.”

A week after seeing his

offense wake up against

Niles West, it was the defense’s

turn to put on a

show and put on a show

it did. The team limited

the Wildkits’ star running

back to Quadre Nicholson

to 57 yards and forced

the Miami-of-Ohio-bound

running back to fumble the

ball on the Wildkits’ second


The fumble, recovered

by Brendan Chestnut, propelled

the Trevians to a

17-yard touchdown run by

Tyler Hardin on a fourth

down-and-three play.

“This week we ran a 4-3

(defense) and we usually

run a 3-4 so that was different,

but we played with

a lot of energy tonight,”

Chestnut said. “There was

a lot of swarm tackling, a

lot of effort out there.

“Those two early turnovers

were enormous.

And I think with a team

like Evanston, and I don’t

mean any disrespect to

them, but I feel like they

get down a lot when things

don’t go their way and we

took advantage of that.”

Chestnut’s big day

wouldn’t be done however,

as he forced a fumble

on Evanston’s next

drive, as well. The fumble,

recovered by Jackson

Schmelter, gave the ball to

the Trevians on the Evanston

26-yard line and three

plays later, Hardin connected

with Nick Kuras on

a 24-yard touchdown pass.

Hardin (83 rushing

yards) would score on a

three-yard keeper from

three yards out on the first

possession of the second

half and the Trevians never

looked back.

After not forcing many

turnovers through the first

six games of the season,

the Trevians forced three

against the Wildkits, as

they forced and recovered

another fumble, this time

by the Evanston quarterback,

later in the third period.

“This week our kids really

bought into forcing

turnovers,” Doll said. “Our

kids did some drills this

week and based on film we

saw, we thought we had a

were 3 minutes, 17 seconds

remaining in the

game, when they ran in a

two-yard touchdown.

Trier confidence as the

like Barrington and Loyola

and Conant, that was a really

had back-to-back-to-back.

“I think the morale was

down a little bit but it started

to pick up speed and obviously

GBS was a tough

loss, but the Niles West

game was a wakeup call

that we are a good team

and if we do our job, do it

well, don’t make a lot of

mistakes, we can play really

well. I think that was

another example of that

Loyola dominates Benet in crossover win

Neil Milbert

Freelance Reporter

Until Benet Academy

came to Loyola Academy’s

Hoerster Field on

Saturday, Oct. 12, it was

having a dream season.

There, the visitors from

Lisle had a rude awakening.

The Ramblers scored

unanswered touchdowns

the first six times they had

the football and added a

field goal on their seventh


“Welcome to the Chicago

Catholic League Blue

Division,” quarterback JT

Thomas said after the defending

state champions

ultimately routed their

previously undefeated opponents

from the Orange

Division 46-14 to improve

their record to 5-2.

The alarm clock went

off on the first play from

scrimmage — following

the Aidan Brownlee’s kickoff

return to the Loyola 49-

yard line — when Vaughn

Pemberton ran the ball to

the Benet 9-yard line and

the ball was moved half the

distance to the goal because

of a facemask violation.

On the next play Pemberton

took it over from

the 4-yard line, enabling

the Ramblers to seize

the lead with 71 seconds


The alarm clock continued

to ring incessantly.

Pemberton scored another

touchdown on another

4-yard run. Thomas threw

touchdown passes of 17

and 12 yards to Matt Mangan

and then tallied the fifth

TD on a 9-yard run with 49

seconds left in the first half.

It wasn’t until Nate Van

Zelst kicked a 48-yard field

goal that made the score

Loyola’s Aidan Brownlee looks upfield after making a catch against Benet Saturday,

Oct. 12, in Wilmette. Carlos Alvarez/22nd Century Media

39-0 with 2 minutes, 55

seconds elapsed in the second

half that the Ramblers

took a recess from putting

points on the scoreboard.

Following Van Zelst’s

field goal the Redwings finally

got their act together

and drove 80 yards for a

touchdown that came on

lefthanded quarterback

Collin Gillespie’s 6-yard

pass to 6-foot-4-inch tight

end Jacob Snell. Early in

the fourth quarter they went

on another 80-yard drive

and Gillespie’s 3-yard pass

to Lucas Kosiba produced

their second touchdown.

“We have a lot to review

on film defensively

in the second half,” Loyola

coach John Holecek said.

“Why didn’t we make

those plays that were there

for us to make?

“The offense stuttered

a little in the second half.

Obviously, with a big lead

Caravan comeback foils Loyola’s upset bid


Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

Up 1-0 in the second

half, with a man advantage,

Loyola was looking

to take down one of the

state’s hottest teams and

conference leader Mount

Carmel on its home field.

However it wasn’t to be

as the Caravan stormed

back to score three goals

in the final nine minutes

to take a 3-1 win Oct. 8 in


“This is an emotional

game between two of the

top teams in the CCL,”

Loyola coach Baer Fisher

said. “Two years ago they

won it, last year we won it.

They’re in first place right

now, we knew it was going

to be an emotional battle.

“Credit to them, they

found a way. We need to

learn how to win these

games. I think our youth,

that’s where we’ve been

exposed this season.”

After a scoreless, chippy

first half, a Mount Carmel

player got a red card for

using foul language with

27 minutes, 8 seconds remaining

in the game.

With a man-up advantage,

the Ramblers were

looking to take advantage

and break the deadlock and

did so with 23:33 remaining

in the contest when

Dylan Gripman scored off

of a header.

“Mario Hrvojevic

crossed it in, it bounced

and it just hit my face and

went it,” Gripman said.

“It was relieving and exciting

to finally score the

up the field and trying to


“It (mentality) shouldn’t

change,” Nick Roscoe

said. “When you go down

a man, you have to keep

fighting, so when you’re

up a man, you should have

that advantage and play

with confidence.

“The passiveness comes

with that 1-0 lead too.

Thinking we have that lead

and then sitting off, keeping

them from scoring, the

mentality shifts.”

later, Favela added his second

one it wouldn’t give up.

“I think we did get frustrated

a little,” Gripman

said. “Knowing we were a

man up and we conceded,

we start to panic a little

bit knowing that time was

coming down.

“We should have stayed

Scouts upend Trevians in battle of top teams

Gary Larsen, Freelance Reporter

When Lake Forest’s Gracie

McGowan finally broke a scoreless

tie against New Trier, with

less than nine minutes to play,

the Scouts’ field hockey team

quickly gathered for a timeout.

The message was clear.

“We called timeout and said

that we can’t let them come back

on us,” Scouts junior Julia Hender

said. “We had to stay in the

game and keep our intensity up.

Because the second you drop

back, they’re back in the game.”

The Scouts kept a high intensity

level and used it to get a

second goal from Erica O’Neil

down the stretch. New Trier’s

Kate McLaughlin buried a goal

with less than a minute remaining

before the final buzzer gave

Lake Forest a 2-1 win.

In a game between two of Illinois’

top teams, it was also the

first time in three tries that Lake

Forest (17-3-2) earned a win

over New Trier (22-2-1) this season.

New Trier won 1-0 and 3-1 in

the teams’ previous two meetings.

But the host Trevians

couldn’t pull off a third win over

the Scouts in Northfield on Friday,

Oct. 11.

New Trier coach Stephanie








82 YEARS on the


Nykaza quickly tipped her hat to

Lake Forest.

“They played great, they

played up, and they did what

they needed to do,” Nykaza said.

“The games between Lake Forest

and New Trier are always

emotional and our girls are upset.

But I also think we’re a better

team than we showed.”

Fifty-two scoreless minutes of

field hockey through two halves

played out before McGowan

scored on an assist from Mimi

Gordon. To that point momentum

swings marked the game,

with the teams taking turns applying

attacking pressure.

Lake Forest benefited from

finally having the whole family

together at the dinner table.

“We’ve had players out with

mono, a car accident, and pneumonias

so today was the second

day all season where we’ve had

our core group all together,”

Scouts coach Catherine Catanzaro

said. “Everybody’s healthy

for the first time.”

Hender played in only her

second game back since a fourweek

absence due to mono. She

saw confidence as the chief ingredient

in the Scouts’ win.

“We have a really young team

this year but we went into this

game with confidence that we

Hender Friday, Oct. 11, in Northfield. Gary Larsen/22nd Century Media

could come out on top,” Hender

said. “So it was just going into it

knowing that we had the talent to

beat them.”

“I think we’ve been unconfident

the last few times we’ve

played them. But not any more.”

Lake Forest continued to play

hard after McGowan’s goal

and went up 2-0 when O’Neil

pounced on a loose ball near the

goal mouth and converted with

only 3:30 left to play.

New Trier kept battling but by

the time McLaughlin struck for

the Trevians, only 24.9 seconds

remained in the game.

Catanzaro couldn’t single anyone

out in a total team win for

Lake Forest.

“Our bench was loud, they

were engaged, and when I asked

people to go in they stepped up

and played their role,” Catanzaro

said. “They did exactly what

they were asked to do. Nobody

tried to carry it themselves. Everybody

accepted that they had a

role and when you do that, you

get this type of game.

“We’ve been working on trusting

each other and today I think

that was the biggest difference

— they played as a unit.”

A growth spurt can keep

a teenager in a seemingly

perpetual state of hunger

and fatigue, on top of the

physical aches and pains it

can bring.

But if you’re a tennis

player, added height can

also be a wonderful thing.

“I grew six or seven

inches since last year,”

New Trier senior Ali Benedetto

said. “My serve and

my power in general have

improved a lot.”

Benedetto’s game was

on display at this year’s

Central Suburban League

tournament, as the Trevians’

no. 1 singles player

won a CSL title with a 6-2,

6-1 win over Glenbrook

South’s Vanessa Vaisanen.

competition in title matches

at the CSL meet, held at

Benedetto was a state

qualifier last season for

the Trevians team that

placed fourth downstate in

2A. She’s ready to make

another run at downstate

hardware in her final high

school season.

“I’m just trying to focus

on myself and play

my game, and do the best

I can,” Benedetto said. “I

know a lot of the girls pretty

well, the top few in the

state, but I just need to focus

on my game because if

I’m on, I can beat anyone.”

She’ll get no argument

she’s more fit, and she has a

great variety with respect to

the kind of shots she hits,”

Morse-Karzen said.

The Trevs won the team

title by winning every individual

title match. Julia

Ross won the no. 2 singles

title via a 6-1, 6-3 win over

GBS’s Elizabeth Hoo.

On the first truly cold

and windy day of the fall

season, Ross tried to use

that wind to her advantage

during the two-day meet.

“I was being pretty consistent

getting the ball back

and letting the wind mess

up their games more than

mine,” Ross said.

She’s only a freshman,

but Ross has competed like

a varsity veteran.
