Glencoe residents hope to preserve

‘experience’ of ice-skating at Watts Center

Taylor Hartz

Freelance Reporter


Colder ice, better lighting

and a more rustic interior

were just a few of the

ideas residents suggested

during a community meeting

on the future of the

Watts Center.

The Glencoe Park District

hosted the meeting

on Nov. 5 to give residents

a chance to share

their thoughts on how

they think the Watts Center

could be improved and

what elements they would

want preserved as the center

approaches a deadline

for required upgrades.

More than three dozen

residents came out to voice

their concerns and ideas

for how Watts could be updated

to benefit the community,

and to share why

they think the ice rinks are

such an important part of

life in Glencoe.

According to park district,

the projected lifespan

of a facility upgrade

is about 20 years, and it

has been just about 20

years since the Watts Center

received it’s last major

upgrade — a $3.1 million

renovation and modernization

in 2000 and 2001.

As the two-decade mark

approaches, the Watts

Center ice rink is “nearing

the end of its useful life”

and is in need of upgrades

to ensure its future accessibility

in the community,

district officials said.

To help fund the necessary

upgrades, the district

is planning to apply for a

$2.5 million funding opportunity

through a Park

and Recreation Facility

Construction Grant that

will be available for renovations

and updates in

2020 through the IDNR.

This grant has only been

available twice in the state

in the past decade, and will

be highly competitive, said

Lisa Sheppard, executive

director of the Glencoe

Park District. Applications

are due in January and

the district plans to apply

for the funding, but first,

they wanted to hear from

the residents who use the


Throughout the meeting,

district officials asked

residents a series of questions

to learn more about

how to approach Watts

Center upgrades. First,

they asked “What makes

Watts special to you and

your family?”

Passing around a microphone,

many residents

expressed that Watts offers

a unique, fun experience

that other communities

don’t have, that they want

to make sure they preserve

in Glencoe.

“This is a unique facility

that sets us apart from other

communities,” resident

Steven Kohn said. “It’s a

real asset to our community.”

Another resident agreed,

saying the Watts Center is

a major reason he still calls

Glencoe home.

For Britt Wright, the

Watts Center is a place that

meant a great deal to her in

her own childhood that she

wants to be a part of her

children’s lives.

“I grew up in Glencoe

and now I’m raising my

three young kids here in

Glencoe,” Wright said.

“Some of my best childhood

memories were going

skating at Watts, going after

school with my friends

and getting hot chocolate,

going to skate on Fridays

with my family; just having

a place that was safe

and something fun to do

and I really want my kids

to have those same memories.”

Next, the district asked

residents if they thought it

was important to preserve

the current “experience”

of the ice rink, including

skating under the stars and

in snowfall. When asked to

provide a show of hands,

every hand in the room

shot in the air in support of

preserving the experience.

The question that garnered

the most input from

the crowd was: “If you

could only make one improvement

to Watts, what

would it be?”

For Leah Lyle, the answer

was making the interior

of the center have a

more rustic, cozy feel to it.

“I think it would be cool

if the whole place had

more of a ski chalet feel,

with more fireplaces rather

than fluorescent lighting,”

she said.

Other residents agreed,

proposing ideas for more

comfortable seating and

maybe a bar for parents to

hangout in while their children


For others, logistically

improving the ice was a

major concern.

One resident said that

without a doubt he would

improve the coolers on the

ice, and add some shade

above the sunniest spots

on the rink to make sure

that the ice stays as frozen

as possible to make skating

a better experience.

Kids help Chicago’s homeless at inaugural Lunches of Hope


Christine Adams

Freelance Reporter

Dozens of Chicagoans

facing homelessness

found themselves with

one less meal to worry

about, thanks to the actions

of some Glencoe


Glencoe Youth Services,

a drop-in center with

recreational and educational

opportunities, held

its first Lunches of Hope

event the morning of Saturday,

Nov. 9, in which

about 20 kids and some

parents packed more than

50 lunches that were delivered

later that morning

to housing- and food-insecure


“We discuss ways to

help others,” said Halle

Lyle, 11, GYS Youth

Board president.

With the help of GYS

Executive Director William

Barnard and Assistant

Director Pamela

Tousis, the kids decided

that making lunches that

could be directly given

to people in need would

be a beneficial service


The children decorated

the bags to support the

recipients, coloring rainbows

and adding sayings

like “you’re amazing”

to lift their spirits. They

were filled with ham sandwiches,

apples and chips

by a group that was so

efficient, Barnard found

himself running to The

Grand within the first 15

minutes just to get more


“Our goal is to pack 50

lunches each month for

the next year, totaling 600

lunches,” Barnard said.

“This is something we

want to open up to the

community to be a part

of. Let’s all gather to do a

great thing for people,” he


The inspiration for the

Lunches of Hope initiative

falls under GYS’s

youth mental health campaign,


“There’s a stigma for

everyone to feel like everything

is supposed to

be easy and achievable,

but that’s not how life really

is,” said Tousis, who

is also studying social


Adolescents have a hard

time talking about their

mental health because issues

like anxiety are not

always apparent on the

surface, and so GYS is

working to break down

that stigma and help students

recognize the importance

of maintaining

their own mental health,

as well as realize that

others may be struggling


With that mindset, the

group chose a project that

could serve another community

in need.

“What better way to

encourage yourself than

helping others with a

genuine spirit,” Barnard


And while the community

certainly rallied

to support the homeless,

attendees seemed just as

eager to support GYS,


“I’m here because Pam

[Tousis] is here,” said Lilly

Eppley, 11, who is also

the idea manager for the

youth board.

Even parents couldn’t

resist the opportunity to

give back to GYS.

“We just moved here

to Glencoe, and our son

loves this place,” Erika

Siu said.

“What they’re doing is

really good. They’re enhancing

community life

and teaching service,” she

the spirit behind them is

as inviting as ever.

“It’s an open community,

and anybody can

come,” said Alexandra

of the youth board.

She highlighted a bake

sale coming up on Nov.

21 as the next big charity

event to look forward to,

‘stressful’ lockdown at New Trier

Megan Bernard, Editor

The Winnetka Police

Department responded to

New Trier High School’s

Winnetka campus at 2 p.m.

Friday, Nov. 8, for a report

of a lockdown.

The lockdown was activated

in error, according to

a tweet posted at 2:25 p.m.

from the Winnetka Police

Department’s Twitter account.

In the tweet, the police

said: “The Winnetka Campus

was in lockdown. It was

activated in error. More details

to follow. All students

are safe. Police have verified

the campus is safe.”

When reached for comment,

New Trier’s communications

department was

unable to provide immediate

information; however,

Superintendent Paul Sally

sent an email to parents following

the incident.

In the email message,

Sally confirmed it was an

error that lasted for approximately

15 minutes.

“Our students and staff

responded extraordinarily

well to the lockdown announcement,”

Sally says

in the email. “They went to

safe spaces and remained

quiet while we worked as

quickly as possible to determine

that the campus

was safe. We made an announcement

at the end of

the lockdown and released

students to their next period

class after it was over.”

Sally acknowledged

the lockdown was “a very

stressful experience for our

students, staff and parents,”

and thanked the police for


New Trier officials will

also be reviewing lockdown

procedures to prevent

this error going forward.

“We will be discussing

this experience with students

and staff to ensure

they are feeling OK and

to learn how to improve

in the future,” Sally added

in the email. “Our social

work staff, psychologists,

and adviser chairs gathered

in common areas to


help students who were

struggling following this

incident and will be available

for students next

week. Thank you for your

patience and partnership.”

The high school’s annual

LitFest was taking

place Nov. 8 during the

lockdown. Several of the

presenters publicly tweeted

regarding the lockdown.

“I’m at New Trier High

School for their LitFest day

and we are in a lockdown.

Going on 15 minutes now,

no info. Kids are amazing

and brave,” author Rebecca

Makkai said.

Another LitFest guest,

Adam Morgan, the founding

editor of Chicago Review

of Books, confirmed

the lockdown was the result

of a staff member accidentally

activating the

lockdown alert.

“I’m at New Trier High

School and the lockdown is

over, the campus is ‘safe,’

but we’ve been told to stay

in our rooms,” Morgan

said. “These kids are braver

Community offers

resources to help

immigrant residents

With almost half of its

residents being of Latino

descent, Highwood is one

of the highest-concentrated

areas of immigrants in

Lake County. But being a

destination for immigrants

comes with the responsibility

of providing resources

and services for those communities.

The League of Women

Voters of Highland Park

and Highwood hosted an

immigration panel Nov. 5

at the Highwood Public Library

to discuss and answer

questions regarding those

services. The panel was

moderated by Highland

Park High School guidance

counselor and Moraine

Township Trustee Pablo


“We all know that families

are being impacted

profoundly,” Alvarez said.

“We serve many of these

families here in Highland

Park and Highwood. You

know, their children attend

our schools, our libraries,

our programs and community

services. Families worship

beside us in church.”

Alvarez noted there is

a network of support for

immigrants through collaborations

with Moraine

Township, Family Focus,

Family Services of Lake

County, local school districts,

North Suburban Legal

Aid and the Highwood

Public Library.

Speakers included Susan

Schulman of the North

Trustees back ordinance to

ban recreational marijuana

businesses; final vote set

for Nov. 21

Glenview is now one

step away from banning

recreational cannabis businesses

from operating

within village limits following

a 4-2 vote at the

Glenview Village Board

meeting on Tuesday, Nov.


The Village was put on

the clock to determine how

to approach the issue after

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker

signed the Cannabis

Regulation and Taxation

Act into law on June 25.

The law makes Illinois

the 11th state to legalize

recreational marijuana and

kickstarted the Glenview

Village Board’s exploration

of what that means for

the village.

The statewide legislation

legalizes the sale,

possession and use of cannabis

for recreational purposes

by adults over age

21 starting Jan. 1, 2020.

However, the law allows

municipalities to regulate

NSCDS brings back Work Day tradition in honor of centennial


Submitted by NSCDS

Dig Day, later known as Work

Day, was one of North Shore

Country Day’s earliest traditions,

beginning in the 1920s and continuing

into the late 1990s.

Last week, it made a comeback

in the form of a special Centennial

Morning Ex on Nov. 6.

After a brief presentation by

School Archivist Siera Erazo and

Director of the Live+Serve Laboratory

Drea Gallaga, students

joined their buddies outside to

symbolically participate in tree

plantings around campus.

Each buddy group was assigned

to one of seven trees,

which were already in place, and

buddy pairs used trowels, shovels

and other tools to fill the holes

with dirt.

Gallaga, who also teaches Upper

School English and social

studies, talked about how service

has changes through the life of

the school.

“What does service mean now

and how do we care for our campus?

Because that’s really what

Dig Day was — a way of caring

for our physical spaces,” he said.

Since the school’s conception,

North Shore Country Day has

emphasized the importance of

service. The first Dig Day on record

was on April 20, 1922.

According to the 1922 yearbook,

students were all assigned

different tasks, ranging from sorting

and cataloguing library books

and cleaning out cupboards to

painting flag poles, raking leaves,

planting grass and even building

a rabbit hutch.

The following school year,

the students adopted “Live and

Serve” as the school’s motto.

Community life and “the desire

of the child to be of use to other

members of his group and to his

group as a whole,” was of critical

importance to Founding Headmaster

Perry Dunlap Smith and

integral to the progressive education

theory of the time.

Lynn Williams ’25 reflected on

Dig Day at Smith’s memorial service

in 1967.

“One spring day, he led us out

with shovels and rakes for the

first Dig Day,” Williams recalled.

“He must have thought it was

good for our characters and good

for our souls, but mostly it was

one more thing which needed to

be done, to clean up and to plant

some new trees.”

After the symbolic tree planting

Nov. 6, students shared a snack

together — also a throwback to

the early Dig Day tradition.

2020-21 school year calendar approved with no eLearning days

Todd Marver

This school year is only

a few months old, but the

Glencoe School District 35

Board is already looking

ahead to next school year

with the approval of the

2020-2021 calendar at its

Thursday, Nov. 7 meeting.

The first day of school

for first through eighth

grades will be Aug. 27,

while the first day for kindergarten

will be Aug. 31.

“We have commitment

across the township to start

the same week,” Superintendent

Catherine Wang

said. “You may see slight

variation on the days.”

The last day of school

is slated for June 8. Winter

A brief recap of other School Board action from Nov. 7

• A trio of policy revisions were approved dealing with

school district legal status, school district governance

and powers and duties of the school board.

• Board member Marc Gale was approved as the D35

School Board delegate to attend the Nov. 23 IASB

delegate meeting in Chicago.



April 22. Staff will use

these as opportunities to

consider student data and

student planning.

“We’ve had one (school

improvement half day) so

far, but we found it was

valuable to be able to use

our teacher institute days

for full professional development

and learning and

not to have to also embed

that time in there (for student

data and planning),”

Wang said.

The district is not planning

on using eLearning

days next school year

where students would do

work at home in lieu of


From Page 3

One resident said his

priority would be to add a

heated bench to keep skaters

warm when they’re

off the ice, and another

said improved lighting for

night skating was a necessity.

No residents were opposed

to adding an outdoor

addition to the North Side

of the Watts Center, near

the soccer field, and many

suggestions were made for

possible uses for the rink

space in the off-season, including

rollerblading and

skating. The district proposed

possible plans for a

modular circuit for bikes,

scooters and skateboards.

In addition to the ice

having a snow day to be

made up later in the school

year. Wang said the state

requirements are not conducive

to the district being

able to use eLearning days.

“The requirements from

the state are such that we

don’t feel we could meet

all the obligations for five

counted clock hours for

teachers and children and

meeting all the needs of

our unique learners and

being able to document

that we’re doing that in a

quality way,” Wang said.

If the district were to

have only one snow day, it

wouldn’t have to be made

up later in the school year.

But if there were to be more

than one snow day, then it

would have to be made up.

“We do have one extra

day in our calendar

based on our contract, so

we would have one wiggle

day,” Wang said. “If

it went beyond that, we

rink, the Watts Center is

used year-round in a variety

of ways.

The center offers its

Kids Club before and after

school care, which has

been steadily booked to

capacity, and hosts dance

and theater classes and

summer camp. The center

debuted its Dek Hockey

this fall and serves as a

community polling station,

along with a space

for community events or

private rentals, said Bobby

Collins, director of recreation

and facilities.

During the rink season,

which this year will

be Nov. 29-March 1, the

center is steadily packed

with children and adults

who love to skate. On average

the rink hosts 432

would talk with the board

and discuss where that day

is made up.”

Like the New Trier

School Board, the Glencoe

D35 School Board opposed

a pair of Illinois Association

of School Boards

resolutions dealing with

Student Safety and the

School Safety Grant Program.

At the same time,

the board was sympathetic

to districts in the state that

don’t have the resources

that Glencoe does and districts

in rural areas.

“We have the very fortunate

position of having

a lot of resources,” board

president Kelly Glauberman

said. “We have resources

to upgrade safety

which we’ve done and

we have resources to have

a deep relationship with

Glencoe Public Safety. I

am sympathetic to districts

that don’t have those resources

for school safety.”

hours of open hockey and

349 hours of private rink

rentals per season, Collins


In total, the Watts Center

offers about 1,944 hours of

programming every year,

averaging 7 hours per day,

according to the district.

The next step toward

improving the center will

be for the district to bring

the feedback from the

meeting to the Watts Advisory

Committee. The committee

will then provide a

synopsis if the feedback to

the Board of Commissioners.

Grateful for wind, cold and air

can’t stop chuckling.

It’s November but

I’m still marveling at

the visual of my daughter,

clad in a red tomato

costume, running up and

down snow-covered driveways

to trick-or-treat, as

more snowflakes swirled

through the air. It was

delightful, it was maddening,

and it was so whimsical

that one couldn’t help

but laugh.

But let’s face it: the

cold weather arrived fast.

Much faster than anticipated.

I would be lying if

I said that I didn’t walk

outside of my home each

morning, steeling myself

for the icy chill that hits

my skin and freezes my

face. This kind of weather

is not exactly welcomed

with open arms ... more

like gritted teeth.

“I love the Midwest

but I can’t stand the cold

weather.” I hear this

statement so often that I

should make it my iPhone

ringtone. The thing is,

over the past few years,

I’ve made a conscious

effort to shift my outlook

on cold weather. What

I’ve discovered is that

this tiny shift had an

incredible ripple effect

when it came to winter


I began by welcoming

the serene visual of

snow, whether that be a

soft snowfall or a blanket

of white covering every

lawn on the street. I saw

this clean, blank canvas

among nature and one

word came to mind:

peaceful. I studied the

romantic way the snow

clung to tree branches or

the cheerful way it was

piled into a snowman

by children. I made a

point to slow down and

watch the snow- even if

just for a minute or two.

The effect was akin to

meditation: slow down,

calm down. Once again,


Additionally, when the

temps dip low, I focus

on the community element.

Gathering around

a crackling fireplace or

baking a lasagna to enjoy

with neighbors allows for

warmth to exist within

our homes. For my family,

cold weather is a nice

excuse to make a huge

bowl of popcorn (side

of M&Ms) and put on a

movie. Sometimes we

skip the movie and listen

to music while playing

spirited games of UNO.

I learned some valuable

lessons about preparing

my wardrobe for the cold.

Instead of throwing on a

bulky sweater, I dress in

several layers of thinner

clothing to keep warm. I

don’t resist a hat, scar, or

pair of mittens; I embrace

function over fashion

because function is usually

warmer. I heartily

endorse blanket snuggles

on the couch, as well.

Lastly, I have a mantra

that I whisper to myself: I

am in awe of nature every

single day. This is one of

the Midwest’s greatest

gifts: four full yet individual

seasons. Our trees are

laid bare, only for Spring

to sprout green and gold.

Summer allows gardens

and flowers to flourish

until Fall colors our

world like an artist with a

palette. Winter wipes the

slate clean. Think about

it- how lucky are we to

witness these evolutions

Application for recreational

heading to vote

An application for

Northbrook’s first recreational

marijuana dispensary

is moving forward.

The Northbrook Plan

Commission instructed

village staff to prepare a

resolution recommending

approval of an application

filed by Greenhouse Group

LLC as the potential lessee

of the property located at

755 Skokie Blvd. during

its Tuesday, Nov. 5 regular


Commissioners conducted

their second public

hearing on the application

during the meeting. The

commission held its first

review of the proposal

during its Tuesday, Oct.

15 meeting, where almost

two dozen members of the

public spoke during the

public-comment portion.

Commissioners considered

all elements of the

application Oct. 15 except

a text amendment to allow

adult-use cannabis dispensaries

as special-permit

uses in Northbrook. At that

time, Village trustees had

not yet determined their

opinions on the matter.

Members of the commission


agreed that the applicant’s

requested relief was appropriate

at that meeting.

The Village Board of

Trustees then unanimously

voted Oct. 22 to allow special-use

permits to be issued

for recreational marijuana

dispensaries in the

C-2, C-3, C-4 and C-5 districts,

but not in downtown

Northbrook. With the Village

Board’s approval, the

Plan Commission was then

able to consider all parts of

Greenhouse Group’s application.

The current proposal

calls for a renovation of

the existing 9,938-squarefoot

building at 755 Skokie

Blvd., which used to house

the Rehabilitation Institute

of Chicago and has long

been vacant. According

to the board packet, the

applicant is proposing to

completely renovate the

inside of the structure to

create two distinct zones

within the building: a publicly

accessible zone for

retail area and communal

activity space; and a private,

restricted area for

back-of-house business.

Approximately 15-25

full-time employees will

staff the potential dispensary,

according to the applicant.

Longtime area comedian keeps audiences in stitches at Second City


Eric DeGrechie

Managing Editor

Jimmy Carrane admits

he was a fat teenager during

his days of walking the

hallways at New Trier High


“I weighed more than

300 pounds. I learned to

make fun of myself so other

kids wouldn’t make fun

of me,” said Carrane, a native

of Kenilworth and current

resident of Evanston.

“It was pretty cliche.”

Born out of the self teasing

was a knack for making

people laugh and an affinity

for comedy. For several

decades, Carrane has been

part of the Chicagoland

improv community while

also staying active in acting,

comedy teaching and

storytelling. He is currently

utilizing all of his skills

with an autobiographical

one-person show, “World’s

Greatest Dad (?),” playing

on Saturdays through Nov.

30 at Chicago’s legendary

comedy stomping ground,

Second City.

Growing up in Kenilworth

and the North

Shore gave Carrane countless

memorable experiences

that have permeated into

his act over the years.

“Kenilworth is a small

town so you knew everybody.

There was a drugstore

called Blann Pharmacy

and back then, you could

charge candy to your parents,”

Carrane said. “Then

at the end of the month,

you’d get nervous because

the bill would come out and

your mom would be mad

because you charged $10

— a lot of money then —

for candy.”

After high school at New

Trier, Carrane opted not to

go on to college. He said

that decision caused a lot of

self shame as he estimates

“World’s Greatest Dad(?)”

7:30 p.m. Saturdays

through Nov. 30

Second City

230 North Ave., Piper’s

Alley (Second Floor)


98 percent of graduates enter


“The first thing I did was

lie to people and tell them

I was taking night classes

at Northwestern,” Carrane


Instead of signing up for

classes in Evanston, he opted

to take some at Second

City, one of the most influential

and prolific comedy

theatres in the world.

Between the ages of

18 and 19, Carrane found

himself getting immersed

in the world of improv


“I was a smart aleck kid

and now everything I had

been punished for in school

and at home, I was now being

rewarded for in improv

classes,” Carrane said.

Carrane always wanted

to do stand-up comedy, but

admits he was too afraid

to follow through. With

improv, he could be funny

with a group and not be

stuck on a stage alone. This

was much more appealing

for a comedian that didn’t

enjoy telling jokes.

“In improv, you can get

up and work off of other

people, which I had been

doing my whole life,” Carrane


Among the “other people”

Carrane found himself

working with in the 1990s

were comedy legends like

Chris Farley, Mike Myers,

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler,

among others.

“Chris Farley was one of

these guys, and I was not

an easy laugh, who made

Greatest Dad (?),” through Nov. 30 at Judy’s Beat

Lounge in Chicago. Photo submitted

everybody laugh,” Carrane

said. “He was so committed

to what he did on stage. It

was unbelievable to watch.”

Carrane said that he and

Myers were part of a team

of comedians that performed

at comedy hot spots

like Second City, iOChicago

and The Annoyance

Theater. Even after landing

a career-defining gig

at “Saturday Night Live”

in 1989, Myers would stop

back in Chicago and perform

with his friends.

“He actually recommended

me for ‘Saturday

Night Live’ the first or second

season he was on the

show,” Carrane said.

Carrane has worked in

New York and Los Angeles

but he contends nothing

compares to Chicago,

especially when it comes to

team comedy.

“We’re always doing

it together. We’re always

looking out for our team

partners,” Carrane said.

“There’s not that same

pressure. You have to eventually

leave Chicago to

make it, but it’s a perfect

training ground.”

Carrane has stayed busy

over the years, even teaching

improv classes and

guiding a new generation

of comedians at many of

the theaters he’s performed

at. With “World’s Greatest

“Chris Farley was one of these

guys, and I was not an easy

as he ever has on stage

and audiences have ate it

Carrane is no stranger

to putting his life experiences

up on stage. His first

one-person show, “I’m 27,

I Still Live at Home, and I

Sell Office Supplies,” was a

runaway hit, opening at the

Annoyance Theater in 1991

and running for more than a

year-and-a-half. Since then,

Carrane has written other

one-person shows including

“Since We Last Talked,”

“Dog Tales,” and “Living in

bune’s Top 10 Shows of the

Year in 2001.

In “World’s Greatest

Dad(?),” Carrane talks

about how hard it was for

him to deal with other people’s

success and his painful

obsession with fame.

“I haven’t done a oneperson

show in 18 years.

For me, I need to have

something to say,” Carrane

said. “This show lets me do


In the show, Carrane

talks about how the obsession

with fame leads him to

group therapy, but after 10

years in therapy — despite

having gotten married,

bought a townhouse and

adopting a cat – Carrane is

still unhappy.

When his therapist suggests

that Carrane and his

wife have a baby to bring

more joy into their life, he

sets out to become a firsttime

dad at age 52, at the

same time that his own father

is dying. From fertility

treatments to a disastrous

funeral, Carrane takes the

audience on a “funny and

poignant roller coaster of

life and death” and shares

his discovery that you

don’t have to be the “greatest”

to be a good dad.

One of the highlights

of the show is Carrane

telling the story of his

father’s funeral, which

happened three years ago.

When Carrane discovers

that his siblings and

the priest are conspiring

to prevent him from giving

a eulogy so he won’t

divulge any family secrets

about his father’s criminal

past, he creates a scene

that gets the Winnetka police


“Judy’s Beat Lounge is

a really nice space. It’s always

a great crowd,” Carrane

said. “I really hope

when people leave understand

that though I had

thought becoming famous

would give me a sense of

love, it was the birth of my

daughter helped me realize

I can’t give love from

something outside of myself.

That doesn’t mean

I’ve given up my dream of

becoming famous.” dining out

Brothers build on success with Bobby’s Deerfield

Martin Carlino

Contributing Editor

Perfection is a goal

many in the restaurant industry

consider unattainable.

But brothers Bobby and

Augie Arifi, owners of

Bobby’s Deerfield, have

been challenging that notion

for more than three


The two started working

together in the restaurant

industry in the 1980s,

and with the exception

of a six-month period,

they’ve been working together

ever since.

Bobby and Augie’s first

joint masterstroke in the

industry was Glenviewfavorite

Cafe Lucci. The

brothers long hoped to

build off their success at

Cafe Lucci and open another

restaurant on the

North Shore.

Seven years ago, they

struck a deal for the space

at 695 Deerfield Road,

near the intersection of

Deerfield and Waukegan

roads, and Bobby’s Deerfield

was born.

It operates under the

same structure as Cafe

Lucci, with Bobby taking

care of front-of-the-house

responsibilities and Augie

running the kitchen.

And to them, that is perfection.

“From job to job, we’ve

gone together,” Augie

said. “We went to school

together, we live on the

same block still, we’re

real tight.

“Me and Bobby really

have a special relationship

that a lot of people don’t


Augie called the transition

to Deerfield a “perfect

first step” and said

the community welcomed

them with open arms.

Although the cooking

style at Bobby’s is similar

to Cafe Lucci’s, according

to Augie, ownership’s

initial goal was to build a

menu that was vastly different

than its Glenview

counterpart. However,

feedback indicated dinners

at Bobby’s were eager

for some resemblance

to Cafe Lucci.

“We kept hearing Bobby’s

was nothing like Cafe

Lucci, so then we started

to bring back some of the

influences with the Italian

dishes (we offer here) for

the people who were used

to Cafe Lucci,” Augie


Augie described the

current menu as one “that

is extensive for a restaurant

of Bobby’s size” and

one “that features something

for everyone.”

Bobby’s routinely offers

three or four daily

specials that often make

their way into menu consideration

due to popularity

from diners.

That presents management

with a challenge

when it reviews changes

to Bobby’s menu.

Augie estimates Bobby’s

menu changes two

or three times a year, with

each update more difficult

than the last.

“There’s no dogs on the

menu,” Augie said, repeating

a common phrase

among those in the restaurant


“Almost all of our dishes

are good sellers,” Augie

continued. “It’s a good

feeling, but at times you

have to make some hard


Augie and Bobby are always

flexible to entertain

returns to the menu if they

find patrons are frequently

requesting a particular

dish. They’ll even make

any dish that used to be on

the menu if they have the

ingredients on hand.

In addition to its wideranging

food menu, Bobby’s

also features an extensive

cocktail menu.

Augie described the bar

as a “liquid kitchen” and a

bar in which everything is

made in house.

Bobby’s makes its own

syrups and only uses

fresh-squeezed juices.

“We invested a lot of

money in our bar and its

selection, and it has just

taken off immensely,” Augie


Bobby’s Deerfield, approximately

5,200 square

feet in size, seats about

160 guests in its interior

dining room, according to

Tim Arifi, chief financial

officer of Bobby’s Restaurant

Group and Bobby Arifi’s

son. The restaurant’s

sizable bar area seats dozens

more and a private

room offers seating for 40

more guests.

22nd Century Media

editors recently visited

Bobby’s to taste some of

its beloved specialities.

We started our visit

with the restaurant’s zucchini

and quinoa cakes

($13) appetizer offering.

The cakes are served

with a tzatziki sauce, a

micro-green salad and extra

virgin olive oil.

We next tried out Bobby’s

gnocchi short rib

($17) dish, one of the

menu options that Augie

said features Cafe Lucci’s

Italian flair. The dish is

made with the restaurant’s

homemade gnocchi and

served with braised short

rib ragout and root vegetables.

Bobby’s signature burger

($15) was next up for a

taste. The burger features

a special blend of short

rib, brisket and chuck beef

made for Bobby’s Deerfield

by Allen Brothers,

according to Augie.

The 10-ounce burger

features gouda cheese, alfalfa

sprouts, tomato, red

Bobby’s English pea

and shrimp risotto ($19),

the last entree we tasted,

is prepared with rock

shrimp, prosciutto di Parma,

peas, pea puree and

pea tendril.

We ended our visit by

trying out the restaurant’s

sticky toffee cake ($9),

a popular dessert option

among guests.

Augie and Bobby recently

opened a Bobby’s

location in Lincoln Park,

which just celebrated its

one-year anniversary.

There’s no specific plans

in the works for another

Bobby’s location right

now, but regardless of

where Bobby’s goes,

community will always be

an integral aspect of it.

“The most important

thing is that this is Deerfield’s

Loyola, New Trier finish seasons at state meet

Submitted Content

For the 50th year, Detweiller

Park in Peoria hosted

the Illinois State Cross-

Country meet. New Trier’s

boys and girls teams both

qualified and participated

in the highly anticipated

Class 3A races. Both teams

excelled this year, winning

their conference meets. The

boys team also won their

Class 3A Regional meet and

finished third in Sectionals.

New Trier’s top finisher

at Detweiller Park, sophomore

Nick Falk, had a

personal-best time of 14

minutes, 50 seconds.

“It was a hard race, with

lots of pushing and shoving,”

Falk said. “I wish I had

done better, but it felt good

to get a personal best.”

“It was a fast race,” New

Trier coach David Wisner

said. “It was amazing how

fast they were out today.”

In fact, it was a recordbreaking

race with Hersey’s

Josh Methner breaking the

47 year-old course record

held by Craig Virgin.

The New Trier boys team

was able to finish 10th overall,

despite one of its top

racers, J.D. Shelley, unable

to run due to a leg injury.

While it was not the outcome

that they had hoped

for, Wisner and the team are

looking toward the future.

“We have six guys coming

back next year out of

the seven that ran today,”

Wisner said

The New Trier girls squad

also made it downstate as a

team and took 16th place

over the weekend.

Marlee Fradkin led the

way for the Trevians with a

72nd-place finish, completing

the race in 18:03.63.

Despite Loyola not qualifying

as a team in either

the boys or girls races, the

Ramblers did have individual

runners make the trip to



Both freshman Ellie

Grammas and junior Sarah

Jay were making their first

appearances at the state

meet. Grammas, who won

a regional title two weeks

ago, finished 47th with a

time of 17:49.45. Jay finished

in 18:54.95.

Like his female Rambler

counterparts, sophomore

Spencer Werner was also

making his debut at the

state meet. Werner completed

the race in 14:47.78,

good enough for 26th

place, one place out of

earning all-state accolades.

Girls Volleyball Coach of the Year

Rupnik leads Scouts to 28 wins,

regional title in first season

Nick Frazier

Contributing Sports Editor

A former defensive specialist

and team captain at

Lake Forest College, Tia

Rupnik excelled at preparing

for what opposing

teams would do. Knowing

what to expect and reacting

accordingly is a crucial part

of the position.

Yet Rupnik admitted she

didn’t know what to expect

in her first season as head

coach of the Scouts.

“If you were to ask me

before the season started

what I thought our record

would be, I wouldn’t have

even known what to guess

at the time,” Rupnik said.

After totaling just 22

wins in two seasons, Lake

Forest rebounded with

Rupnik at the helm in

2019. The Scouts went

28-9, competed well in

weekend tournaments and

capped the season off with

a regional title. The turnaround

campaign was more

than enough for Rupnik

to earn 22nd Century Media’s

2019 Girls Volleyball

Coach of the Year honor.

Rupnik served as the

Scouts’ assistant coach for

two seasons before taking

over as head coach this

year. Yet the Wisconsin native

is quick to credit Lake

Forest’s seven seniors for

the successful season.

“I think that our senior

class this year just really

stepped it up, everyone really

just bought in to the

concept of the team, which

was awesome,” Rupnik

said. “That had a huge part

on us having success in

tournament in September. Photo submitted

terms of wins and losses,

but then also just us really

enjoying our time together

as a team.”

This year’s edition of the

Scouts were more versatile,

which made life easier for

Rupnik in her first season.

She could flip her outside

and right-side hitters to

defender different hitters

when necessary, a component

that the team didn’t

have in the past.

The most notable difference

this season was the

scouting, as Rupnik, assistant

coach Ray Werner and

the team committed to studing


“We scouted pretty

much every team that we

played against this year,”

Rupnik said. “We scouted

other teams, we spent a

lot of time looking at ourselves

and trying to learn

from film, and that played

a huge role in us learning

and being more prepared

in our matches. I also think

for our girls, it just helped

them mentally, just feeling

more confident in what


they needed to do in matches

to find success.”

Led by superb outside

hitters Alyssa Thrash and

Caroline Graham, the

Scouts got off to a 9-1 start,

winning a tournament in

Hoffman Estates during

that stretch. Even when

Lake Forest picked up a

loss here and there, Rupnik

said she felt her team could

get the win if it had a second


Once Lake Forest placed

second in the Antioch Invitational

on Oct. 12, Rupnik

knew the Scouts could

compete with anyone.

“We had a really competitive

end of our season, we

saw Loyola, Libertyville,

Stevenson all in a row,”

Rupnik said. “We ended on

some really tough matches.

I feel like after that [Antioch]

tournament is really

where I felt confident that

we really can compete at

the same level as these

next three teams that we’re

about to see...”

Scouts to turnaround season

Nick Frazier

Contributing Sports Editor

When Alyssa Thrash

transferred to Lake Forest

High School from Georgia

before her sophomore

year, then-assistant coach

Tia Rupnik couldn’t help

but notice Thrash’s natural

leadership qualities.

“I couldn’t believe how

strong of an athlete she

was, but also how strong of

a leader,” Rupnik recalled.

“Any time that Alyssa

wasn’t on the court, which

was rare, it was very obvious

because she has such

her leadership skills and

Captaining Lake Forest to

a regional title and being

named this year’s 22nd

Century Media Girls Volleyball

Player of the Year.

An All-North Suburban

Conference selection as a

junior a year ago, Thrash

was one of 10 athletes to

return from last season’s

Scouts team. There was a

lot of continuity for Lake

Forest this season, and that

made Thrash’s job as captain

much easier.

“It just really helped us,

being really close on and

off the court,” Thrash said.

“We spent a lot of time together

all the time, I think

that chemistry really helped

us turn it around this year.”

An excellent attacker

in the front row, Thrash

was tasked with leading

the team while handling

to perform in game. Her

stats prove that she more

than rose to the occasion,

racking up 313 kills and

229 digs. She also played

in all 37 of Lake Forest’s

matches, resulting in a 28-9


Most notably, Thrash

saved one of her best performances

for last, totaling

12 kills and 11 digs in the

two-set regional final win

over McHenry.

When looking at her

game, Thrash notes her

steadiness on the court is a

key factor in her improved


“I think that my consistency

has definitely improved

a lot over the years,”

Thrash said. “This past season

I was really consistent.”

“She was just so consistent

for us to be that go-to

player,” Rupnik added.

“That girl knows how to

put balls down, she really

gets the team excited. In all

aspects of the game, Alyssa

was such an important person

for us.”

It was a special season

for Thrash and the Scouts,

whose 28 wins were more


than the previous two seasons

combined. Thrash

knew this year’s squad was

different when the team got

together after tryouts and

shared their season-long

goals. The goals were big,

but attainable.

“I think that’s when it

really hit me that this was

a different kind of team,”

Thrash said.

Thrash has been playing

volleyball since she was 12

years old and played club

with Adversity Volleyball

based in Vernon Hills. Despite

having the talent to

compete at the collegiate

level, Thrash plans to focus

more on her academics and

not play volleyball in college.

That doesn’t mean she

won’t miss her three varsity

seasons with the Scouts, especially

her senior year.

“The Lake Forest volleyball

program means the

world to me, I absolutely

adore it,” Thrash said. “It

taught me who I want to be

as a person, and it helped

me grew into what I wanted

to be as a person, I just

think that’s so important.”

Girls swimming and diving

New Trier takes care of business at CSL South meet


Gary Larsen

Freelance Reporter

If there’s a secret to

high-level performance

when a swimmer isn’t

feeling her best, New

Trier sophomore Leslie

Wendel might have it figured


“It’s always a mental

game. If you don’t feel

good, you can always trick

your brain into thinking

that you do,” Wendel said.

“It works. You can pump

yourself up and have a

good race, even if you’re

not feeling it.”

Wendel did just that at

this year’s Central Suburban

League South invite.

Despite feeling tired

and sore from a hard

practice one day prior,

Wendel won the 100-

yard butterfly in 57.02,

just seven-hundredths of

a second behind the the

CSL South meet record

of 56.95.

Wendel, Carly Novelline

(100-yard backstroke),

Kaelyn Gridley

(100-yard breaststroke),

and Katie Lipsey (1 meter

diving) all won individual

CSL South titles at this

year’s meet, held at Glenbrook

North on Saturday,

Nov. 10.

New Trier also got wins

from its relay teams in

the 200-yard medley and

400-yard freestyle events

to win the team title in


“They did great. I was

really proud of all of them

today,” New Trier coach

Mac Guy said. “We had a

number of girls that were

finishing their season

today and a lot of them

did really well and had

lifetime best times. We

had some really excellent

swims and our diving performances

this morning

were great.”

New Trier’s varsity divers

took three of the top

four spots in the morning

session, with Erin McNally

placing second behind

Lipsey, and Maggie Seftenberg

placing fourth.

The sophomore Novelline

finished nearly three

seconds ahead of the

field to win the 100 back

in 56.22, after she had

already done something

exceptionally well outside

her comfort zone, placing

second in the grueling

500-yard freestyle event.

“Carly was great in the

500 (freestyle) and that’s

something we don’t typically

ask her to do,” Guy

said. “She was excellent


Senior Emma Eldring

finished second in the 50-

yard freestyle and third

in the 100-yard freestyle,

while the sophomore

Gridley won the 100

breaststroke and swam

hard throughout the day.

“Kaelyn Gridley was

rock-solid and exceptional

in the 50 (freestyle)

and in the (200) relay, and

Leslie Wendel just missed

a conference record in

the 100 (butterfly) so that

was pretty awesome. She

had a great day. She was

also third in the 200 (freestyle).”

Guy was also particularly

pleased with a pair

of freestyle top finishes at

the jayvee level from Olivia


“She’s such a sweet kid,

she’s new to the area, and

she won both the fifty and

hundred (freestyle),” Guy

said. “That was exciting

to see.”

Loyola’s fourth-quarter rally shocks Glenbard West

Neil Milbert

Freelance Reporter

Surmounting a twotouchdown

deficit against

an undefeated powerhouse

averaging 49 points per

game while holding its opponents

to 6.9 points per

game is Mission Improbable.

But Loyola Academy

did it not once but twice on

Saturday, Nov. 9 at Hoerster

Field to advance to the

quarter-finals of the Class

8A playoffs.

“We knew we could pull

it off,” said quarterback

JT Thomas after the Ramblers

upset Glenbard West

28-27. “We came back the

first time. Why not the second


The reason the defending

8A champions won

was because Thomas,

Vaughn Pemberton, Aidan

Brownlee, Matt Mangan,

Marty Auer and Nate Van

Zelst made the big plays

when they were urgently


Returning from a leg

injury that sidelined him

for the first playoff game,

Pemberton scored the deciding

touchdown on a

1-yard run that tied the

score at 27 with 3 minutes,

10 seconds to play.

Then, Van Zelst kicked

his fourth extra point, giving

Loyola the lead, and

ultimately, victory.

“We think no one can

stop us,” said Pemberton,

who gained 131 yards in

32 carries and caught four

passes for 27 more yards.

“This was amazing. Now,

we’ve got more to do.”

By virtue of the victory

over their second-seeded

opponent, the 18th-seeded

Ramblers (8-3) will return

to Hoerster Field on

Saturday afternoon, Nov.

16, and attempt to avenge

the 14-6 home-field loss

inflicted by 23rd-seeded

Marist (7-4) in the last

game of the regular season.

Marist advanced to the

quarterfinals via a 14-7

triumph against seventhseeded

Huntley (8-2).

It’s hard to beat a team

three times in a season.

But that’s what top-seeded

Loyola was attempting

to do when it faced off with

fourth-seeded Glenbrook

South in the first sectional

of the Class 4A Maine East

Sectional Nov. 4 in Park


After falling to the Ramblers

twice in the regular

season, the Titans were

able to pull off the upset by

taking down the Ramblers

in a thrilling 25-23, 27-29,

25-22 victory.

“We’ve got five seniors

on this squad and the experienced

really showed at

the end,” GBS coach Kelly

Dorn said. “I think our seniors

steadied us and pulled

it out in the end. That’s

who we looked to in this


Game of the Week:

• Marist (7-4) at Loyola (8-3)

Other matchups:

• Deerfield (9-2) at Lake Forest (7-4)

• Minooka (11-0) at Brother Rice (7-4)

• Homewood-Flossmoor (10-1) at Lincoln-Way

East (11-0)

• Willowbrook (10-1) at Lake Zurich (8-3)

• GLenwood (11-0) at Providence Catholic (8-3)

• Batavia (9-2) at Nazareth (11-0)

It was evident it was going

to be a tight game when

the Ramblers and Titans

each went on multiplepoint

scoring runs, neither

team being able to muster

more than a four-point

lead before the other squad

would make a comeback to

tie or overtake the lead.

A Loyola service error

broke a 14-all tie and propelled

GBS on a 5-0 run to

give the Titans all the cushion

they’d need to win the

first set.

Similar to the first set,

Loyola got out to an early

lead in the second, set,

building a 5-1 advantage.

But again, the Titans went

on a run, this time an 8-1

spurt that gave them a 9-6

lead, forcing Loyola coach

Mallory Thelander to call

two win.

“All of them really

wanted it today and especially

our seniors knew this

may be the last match of

their season,” the Loyola

coach said about her team’s

willingness to fight back.

“They’re out there competing

knowing that every

point counts.”

Something that really

worked for the Titans, especially

in the first two

sets, was a slide by the

GBS middle hitters, especially

the Titans’ Ashley

Carr. Carr had seven of her

12 kills in the first two sets,

primarily on the slide.

“Ashley Carr is sick at

it,” Dorn said. “It’s so hard

to read her, we can’t read

her in practice. It’s unconventional

how she hits it

and she’s got a whip of an


Thelander acknowledged

her squad had a tough time

stopping the slide but they

were able to adjust.

“We haven’t seen many

teams run that many slides

and they knew that was a

weakness,” Thelander said.
