Local maid service, national

nonprofit help those facing cancer

Will O’Brien

Freelance Reporter

In summer 2018, while

undergoing chemotherapy,

longtime Tinley Park

resident Donna Cascio

was drained of energy.

Cleaning her house was

the last thing she wanted

to do.

In stepped Denise

Perez, the owner of the

Orland Park franchise of

You’ve Got Maids. Perez,

with the company since

2006 and a franchisee

since 2017, has partnered

with the national nonprofit

Cleaning for a Reason

to help southwest suburban

women like Cascio

for more than a year.

“I’ve had lots of friends

and family members

who’ve had to deal with

chemotherapy, and I’ve

seen how stressful it is

taking the kids to school

and keeping a household

together,” Perez said.

“Being able to provide a

free cleaning to women

battling cancer and being

able to help just a little —

it makes my heart happy.”

Cleaning for a Reason

was established in 2006

and, in partnership with

businesses like Perez’s,

has since provided more

than $10 million in free

cleaning services to women

throughout the country.

Cascio, a retiree who used

to work for the Social

Security Administration,

found out about the organization

through resources

provided to her by the

America Cancer Society.

“During treatment, I

wanted to believe I wasn’t

really experiencing any

side effects but, looking

back, I really did,” Cascio

said, describing the

recurrence of a cancer

Pictured are (left to right) Courtney Andrews, Donna

cancer treatments in summer 2018, received free

Maids. Photos submitted

she overcame 15 years

ago. “Between treatment

and everything else, I just

didn’t have the energy to

clean.”

Perez, along with three

of her employees, came

over to Cascio’s home for

two intense cleaning sessions,

spaced out by about

a month. Both times, the

You’ve Got Maids crew

divvied up the rooms,

vacuumed, scrubbed and

organized thoroughly.

“The job they did would

have taken me all day to

do when I was healthy,”

Cascio said. “I was very

happy with the outcome

and really enjoyed having

them over.”

Cascio was among the

first women Perez helped

through Cleaning for a

Reason. She has since

VETERANS DAY

Orland Park adds 16 more names to its memorial

LAURIE FANELLI

Freelance Reporter

On the 11th day of the

11th month at the 11th

hour – a time marking the

armistice signed between

the Allies of World War

I and Germany – the Village

of Orland Park welcomed

the community to

the Civic Center for its

annual Veterans Day Ceremony.

Along with remarks

from Veterans Program

Assistant Darryl Wertheim

and Mayor Keith Pekau,

performances of “The

Star-Spangled Banner”

and “God Bless America”

by Tina Fischer and a

prayer delivered by Reverend

Don Borling, the

Monday, Nov. 11 ceremony

was highlighted by the

unveiling of 16 newly engraved

names of veterans

on the Ara Pace – Place of

Peace memorial.

“This event is always

pretty special because today

– Veterans Day – we

honor all the veterans past,

present and future,” Wertheim

said. “So, today is a

special day. We have 16

people’s names engraved

on our memorial. The oldest

one is from 1943 when

he entered into service as a

B-17 pilot and we have a

young gentleman who was

discharged from the service

in 2018 so it’s kind of

special to have such a wide

range.”

Both the B-17 pilot,

Lawrence E. Jensen, Sr.,

and Daniel Molinari, who

served in the U.S. Marine

Corps from 2016 to 2018,

were among the veterans

in attendance at the ceremony.

“We have thousands of

names out on the walls

and it’s an honor to talk

to all the families who put

their veteran’s name on the

wall,” Wertheim said. “It’s

a very special experience.

We talk in length about

their service, what they did

and where they’re at.”

American Legion Orland

Memorial Post 111

and Orland-Palos Reber-

Tesmond VFW Memorial

Post 2604 members were

on-hand to present the colors

and perform a rifle volley

as “Taps” was played.

Eighth graders from Orland

Jr. High School were

also in attendance to honor

veterans and support their

classmates Riley McDoniel

and Zach Supanich who

participated in the wreath

laying ceremony.

Veterans Day may be

over, but residents can

continue to show their

support for members of

the military with a variety

of programs offered by

the Orland Park Veterans

Commission.

“The Village of Orland

Park Veterans Commission,

which I’m part of

also, has activities to support

veterans year round,”

Wertheim said. “We support

three groups that send

Christmas packages – and

packages on a monthly

basis – to troops that are

in harm’s way. This year,

the Village of Orland Park

had a program with school

children. Nine schools participated

and created about

800 Christmas cards that

will be sent on Nov. 19

to men and women in the

military stationed all over

the world.”

In February, the Veterans

Commission will be

hosting a new expo raising

awareness of the experiences

of Vietnam veterans

who were exposed to

Agent Orange. The event

Orland Park man advocates importance

of CPR after he saved a stranger’s life

Alyssa Groh, Freelance Reporter

After saving the life of a stranger who

was in cardiac arrest on a Swallow Cliff

Woods trail, Thomas O’Brien, of Orland

Park, is raising awareness on the importance

of being CPR certified.

Just over a year ago, on Sept. 14, 2018,

Thomas and his wife, Deb, went running

on the Swallow Cliff Woods trail at a time

they typically do not run. During the run,

Deb got ahead of him. As Thomas was

running, he noticed a man, who would later

be identified as Denis Fellmann, also of

Orland Park, lying face down on the trail.

“There was a man lying face down on

the trail, and he wasn’t moving at all, so

I flipped him over,” Thomas said. “He

wasn’t breathing and his eyes weren’t

open. He was in big trouble.”

After rolling him over, Thomas immediately

performed CPR, in which he

maintains certification as an optometrist.

Thomas knew he had to act quickly to

help save this man. He also knew Fellmann

had not been down for long, as Deb,

a nurse, had just passed by and Fellmann

was not lying on the ground at that point.

Realizing the severity of the situation,

Thomas dialed 911, and soon first

responders arrived and transported Fellmann

to the hospital.

Deb, unaware of what happened, found

Thomas sitting on a bench with his head

in his hands.

“We always meet at the same point

when we are done running, and Tom was

sitting on one of the benches, and he had

his head down in his hands and he was

crying,” Deb said. “I asked what happened,

and all he kept mumbling was, ‘I

don’t think I saved him. I tried. I tried. I

don’t think I helped him.’”

Nearly two months later in November,

Denis’ wife, Emily, contacted the police

department to ask if they could give her

Thomas’ number to thank him for saving

her husband’s life.

“Right away, my sister wanted to find

the person who found Denis, and I wasn’t

ready for that,” Emily said. “I thought,

when I find the person, I want to be able

to tell them good news, and for a while I

couldn’t do that. I wanted to call him, but

I wanted to wait until we had good news.”

Pictured are Denis (seated) and Emily

Fellman, and Thomas O’Brien, the first

time they formally met in November

of 2018 at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.

O’Brien performed CPR that September

to help save Denis’ life after he went into

cardiac arrest on a Swallow Cliff Woods

trail. Photo submitted

When Denis arrived to Palos Community

Hospital, he was in a coma for

awhile, and doctors told Emily to start

preparing his affairs because things did

not look good.

“We didn’t know for a while how he

was going to be,” Emily said. “It was really

rough. Most people don’t survive that.”

But Denis survived, thanks in large part

to Thomas’ quick actions.

Just over a year later, Denis is back to

work four days a week.

The two families, who were complete

strangers, are now very close. They frequently

get together, and Thomas supports

Denis in his recovery, even taking

him to practice his driving.

Emily said when she reached out to

Thomas, she just wanted to thank him;

she never expected him to remain in their

lives and become good friends.

“It shows the type of people Tom and

Deb are,” Emily said. “I say if you could

pick someone to save your life, it would

be them.”

The O’Briens’ church, All Saints Lutheran

in Orland Park, has hosted a few

CPR classes.

Orland Park Village Board

Officials are split on moving to a

Committee of the Whole structure

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

The way the Orland

Park Village Board conducts

its meetings may

soon be changing.

The Village Board cast

a 4-3 nonbinding consensus

vote Nov. 4 to instruct

staff to come up with a

possible policy change

to the board’s committee

meetings. Trustees

Dan Calandriello, James

Dodge and Kathleen Fenton

cast the dissenting

votes.

Under the proposed

change, the board would

shift from having six separate

committees meeting

once a month on an

alternating schedule prior

to full board meetings to

one full Committee of the

Whole prior to each Village

Board meeting.

The discussion came

as a result of some suggestions

made by Trustee

William Healy at the Oct.

21 Village Board meeting.

Then, he suggested

establishing a rule that in

order to be able to put an

item on the Village Board

meeting agenda, it would

need to come from the

mayor, the Village manager

or two trustees.

“It is clear that this rule

would prevent reckless

self-aggrandizing, [and]

duplicitous paranoid measures

from making it to

the agenda and wasting

everyone’s time and money,”

Healy said.

He also recommended

that only the mayor individually,

Village manager

individually or two trustees

collectively could authorize

the Village to pay

for legal advice.

“It is clear that one person’s

self-interest ... and

misguided efforts can cost

the Village significant legal

fees in chasing items if

they are a complete waste

of time,” Healy said.

Later in that meeting,

Dodge said the board

would need to take up

Healy’s comments.

“Because, quite frankly,

I don’t think under Illinois

law you can set such a

standard to prevent a duly

elected official from putting

an item on a board

agenda for proper discussion,”

Dodge said.

Orland Park Village

Manager George Koczwara

laid out the preliminary

proposals from staff

at the Nov. 4 meeting. He

said they were based on

practices in other communities.

Koczwara said a form

could be created to on

which a trustee would

place an item he or she

wants on a future agenda

— including the expenditure

of money, modifications

to the Village code,

formation or modification

of Village policies or a

committee, introduction

of an ordinance or resolution,

and appropriation of

Village legal staff time.

The catch? It would

need support from three

other trustees prior to it

being placed on the agenda.

Koczwara also presented

a proposal that would

not allow previously defeated

items to be placed

on a board agenda for at

least a year.

Several trustees took

issue with those two proposals,

in particular.

“We’re all elected officials,

and we all have a

responsibility to do what

we feel is right for the

residents and the Village,”

Fenton said. “It seems like

our ability to be an elected

official is being taken

away from us — micromanaged

or turned into a

dictatorship instead of a

democracy. I don’t think

any of us up here are going

to put something on

the agenda that is going to

cost the Village money.”

Calandriello agreed.

“All seven of us have

a voice,” he said. “We’ve

been elected by the residents.

If it is really an

issue of abuse, or if they

think a trustee is abusing

their power, I’m sure there

is a mechanism to punish

that trustee in our ordinances.”

Dodge took a stronger

stance.

“It’s basically, from my

point of view, just a very

simple way to change the

rules,” Dodge said. “This

is a perfectly effective

way for a 4-3 majority to

control access to everything.”

But the ideas had support

from the other board

members, including Trustee

Michael Milani, who

confirmed with Koczwara

that the initiatives would

not violate free speech or

Open Meetings Act laws.

“I think this is a process

that will actually help us:

put some efficiency into

our committees [and] our

board meetings; we can

lower our legal fees; we

can free up our clerical resources;

and, most importantly,

stop wasting our

time with agenda items

that serve no purpose and

get nowhere,” Milani said.

Mayor Keith Pekau said

any concerns about trustees

not being able to bring

an item to the floor would

be solved by moving to a

Committee of the Whole

structure, because agenda

items would first go there

to be discussed and then

either forwarded onto the

Village Board agenda or

not. Thus, it would eliminate

the need for a form.

In explaining the concept

of changing the committee

structure, Koczwara

said the Committee

of the Whole would discuss

the expenditure of

money over $250,000,

development agreement,

amending the Village

code, and the implementation

or modification of

policies.

“Other than that, the

rest of the items would go

directly to the Board of

Trustees at a full [meeting],”

he said, noting the

board could create its own

rules for what it looked at

and what it did not regarding

the Committee of the

Whole.

Fenton said the Village

previously moved away

from Committee of the

Whole meetings in the

early 1990s, because the

Village Board at the time

felt it was inefficient for

both staff and the elected

officials. She also said the

Committee of the Whole

Round It Up

A brief recap of action and discussion from the

Nov. 4 meeting of the Orland Park Village Board.

• In a 4-3 vote, the Village Board members

shot down a resolution that would eliminate the

Village president position from Illinois Municipal

Retirement Fund eligibility immediately, as

opposed to the end of the term. Trustees James

Dodge, Dan Calandriello and Kathleen Fenton

voted in favor of the item. Mayor Keith Pekau

reiterated his stance that he has never and will

never take part in IMRF.

• During the Public Works Committee meeting,

trustees voted 2-0 to recommend the Village

Board approve renewing its agreement with

the Illinois Department of Central Management

Services for purchase of road salt through the

Joint Purchasing Program. The vendor, if approved,

will be Compass Minerals America Inc., of Kansas,

and the price per ton of salt would be $78.86. Per

the agreement, if approved, the Village is required

to purchase at least 3,840 tons of salt — meaning

at minimum, an expenditure $302,822.40

meetings tended to take

longer than the existing

committee structure.

Calandriello said he

was hesitant to change

from the current committee

structure because,

under Committee of the

Whole, it would negate

the trustees’ ability to get

“two bites at the apple”

for certain agenda items

that would go straight to

the Village Board meeting.

He said the current

structure allows for two

meetings or sometimes a

full month to fully digest

an item, and make an educated

and informed decision

prior to the vote.

Pekau offered some

changes to what Koczwara

presented that could

alleviate Calandriello’s

concerns, such as tweaking

the $250,000 threshold

for expenditure items

to anything that is outside

of the budgeted amount.

“If the bid is within the

budget, then it should go

to the board floor and be

discussed,” Pekau said.

9

“If it is outside of what we

discussed, then it should

be to the Committee of

the Whole, because that

will give us the two bites

at the apple.”

After the consensus

vote, Pekau instructed

staff to bring the matter

back up for a formal vote

at a future meeting.

Stellwagen Farm earns

Landmark Illinois award

The Village Board also

celebrated Stellwagen

Farm receiving an award

from Landmark Illinois

for the farm’s rehabilitation

of 10 of its buildings.

Fenton said the award

— which signifies that the

farm is an important landmark

in not only Orland

Park but also Illinois —

will help when it comes to

applying for grants.

“It puts us on the map,”

Fenton said.

Fenton added that the

farm was just one of nine

recipients of the award,

which was presented in

October.

Coyotes preparing for winter, may be more visible in fall

Submitted by Village of

Orland Park

Coyotes have been in

Orland Park since the late

1970s when they used area

railroad tracks as highways

into Chicago’s south suburbs.

And the population is

growing because coyotes

have no natural predators.

It is not uncommon to

see coyotes in packs of as

many as eight. The coyotes’

breeding time is normally

in February and March,

with their pups being born

in the spring, April and

May. Coyotes can have

anywhere from 5-7 pups in

a litter.

Coyotes feed on rabbits

and mice but eat bird seed

as well as all other animals

and birds that feed on the

seed. The Village recommends

residents who feed

birds and see coyotes stop

feeding the birds for at least

a month.

And it is illegal to ground

feed any animals or birds in

the Village.

Residents who encounter

a coyote are cautioned

to never run from it or take

their eyes off of it. Residents

who encounter coyotes

should yell, scream

and wave their arms, making

themselves look larger

than they actually are.

When that fails, the Village

noted people should throw

anything that is handy at

the coyote or carry an air

horn.

Residents also are encouraged

to always carry a

cellphone when out walking

or walking their dogs.

Walkers are encouraged to

go to the nearest house for

help if needed and ask that

the homeowner call 911 so

that a police officer can respond.

The Village also stressed

the important of not leaving

a family dog or cat to wander

alone outside.

Orland Park is surrounded

by forest preserves, and

the village has wildlife

present in the environment.

There is no need to call

the police department when

coyotes are spotted in the

village unless the animals

are hurt or injured.

Residents with additional

questions about wildlife

in the village may contact

Orland Park Police Animal

Control Officer Steve

Stronk at the Police Department’s

non-emergency

number, (708) 349-4111.

For Perez, the only

in Illinois, the reward

is in the experience

itself.

“Often, when we go

you’ve made even a little

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

Dentist leads Real Men

Wear Pink fundraising

campaign in south suburbs

Whether breast cancer,

prostate cancer, lung cancer,

or any other type of

cancers, today, nearly everyone

has been impacted

by cancer in one way or

another.

For Dr. Ralph Ginn,

dentist at Tinley Park’s

My Care Dental, cancer

has been a part of his life

in many ways. Every day,

he looks for oral cancers

while examining his patients

and, like many others,

he has been called to

support loved ones who

received the diagnosis.

Although he spends a lot

of time educating people

about oral cancers, Ginn

knew he could do more.

Then last year, a longtime

patient educated him about

the American Cancer Society’s

Real Men Wear Pink

campaign, which happens

every year during Breast

Cancer Awareness Month.

Throughout the month

of October, men who participate

in the Real Men

Wear Pink campaign commit

to wearing pink every

day of the month and raising

$2,500 to support the

American Cancer Society

and its programs.

This year, the south suburban

campaign has a goal

to raise a total of $50,000.

As of press time, Ginn was

leading the pack, raising

almost $5,000 himself.

“I made sure that this

money stays close to Tinley

Park and helps families

in Tinley Park, because I

truthfully believe that if

you help your neighbor

next to you and hold their

hand, it’s a stronger bond

and it goes on and on from

there,” he said.

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

Fairmont School gets

lesson from state

legislators

In preparation for the Illinois

constitution test, students

at Fairmont School

were given the ultimate

learning tool in the form

of a presentation by State

legislators.

The group of seventhand

eighth-grade students

gathered at noon on Nov. 1

to hear presentations from

State Sen. Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant,

U.S. Rep. Dan

Lipinski and State Rep.

John Connor on topics of

civics and the process of

passing laws.

Bertino-Tarrant opened

the discussion by quizzing

students on the three

branches of government,

the roles of senators and

representatives, and the

purpose of making laws.

Shortly after, Lipinski arrived

and detailed his experiences

on the job, his

trips to Washington, D.C,

and the differences between

creating State and

national laws.

Students were invited to

give suggestions for a law

they would like passed to

complete a scenario in a

“quick law scenario.” The

law chosen to implement

was a $1,000 fine for littering,

reflecting the garbage

service debate with which

residents of Fairmont have

dealt firsthand. Bertino-

Tarrant then walked students

through the steps

it would take to draft the

proposed law, including

getting approval by Rep.

Lipinski and eventually

handing it off to the governor.

“It’s a complicated process,”

Lipinski explained

to the class, “But it’s set

up that way to get everyone

to agree on making

a new law. People have

lots of different needs and

opinions, and my job is to

find the best way of how to

help them.”

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Mokena’s own ‘Golden

Girls’ honored for 50

years of service

Three women — Carmen

Smallwood, Joan

Fleckenstein and Virginia

Backhus — attended their

first few meetings of the

then recently formed Mokena

Woman’s Club in

1969.

Fifty years later, at the

club’s Oct. 14 monthly

gathering, these Mokena

residents were recognized

in a surprise celebration

for their golden anniversaries.

“I was flabbergasted,”

Fleckenstein said of the

experience. “I did not expect

it.”

Smallwood had a similar

reaction.

“I was really totally

stunned,” she said. “I

thought, ‘How could they

have done all of this without

us knowing?’ It’s always

an honor when your

fellow club members recognize

you like that.”

Club historian Joann

Jeffers, who also is first

vice president and parliamentary

advisor, went

through many past club

photos and archives to prepare

a scrapbook for each

of the ladies as a keepsake.

While the club’s future

projects will continue to

serve the changing needs

of the times — especially

in the areas of education,

scholarships, politics and

charitable giving for the

community — the focus

will stay the same as it has

always been in the past.

“Our Mokena Woman’s

Club motto is, ‘Where

community service and

friendship meet,’ and we

really hold true to that,”

Jeffers said. “One person

can do a little, but a whole

group of people can do a

lot. Our focus has always

been service, and the reward

from that service is

the friendships that are

formed.”

FROM THE FRANKFORT STATION

Scouts celebrated with

Eagle Court of Honor

ceremony

The members of Frankfort

Boy Scout Troop 270

are well-known throughout

the community. From

running the Frankfort Fall

Fest parking lot to hosting

Winter on the Green

events to coordinating

food drives for the Frankfort

Food Pantry, these

Scouts are always ready to

help in any way they can.

On Nov. 3, Michael

Clarkin, Alex Desjardins,

Rory Hanlon, Jake Leonard,

Matthew Lexow and

Justin Murray of Troop

270 participated in an

Eagle Court of Honor ceremony

commemorating

each young man’s achievement

of attaining Scouting’s

highest rank of Eagle

Scout.

Jim Hurley, who serves

as Scoutmaster of Troop

270 along with Arnaud

Desjardins, explained that

the event was a milestone

for the group.

“This past year, we

reached 100 Eagles, so

now we’re above 100,”

Hurley said, adding he was

grateful to all the adults

who help run the program.

“These boys have done a

fantastic job supporting

the community through

different service projects,

Eagle projects and food

drives. I’m really, really

proud of them.”

Troop 270 Committee

Chairman Chuck Rudy

said he was also proud of

the new Eagle Scouts especially

because only “3

percent of people who start

out as Scouts make it to the

Eagle rank nationally.”

FROM THE NEW LENOX PATRIOT

Man in Navy does 20-mile

ruck march for veteran

suicide awareness

Twenty miles for the 20

veterans who die by suicide

everyday.

That is what New Lenox

resident Ryan Brazel —

who has been in the Navy

since he was 18, enlisting

in the wake of Sept. 11 —

did Nov. 2.

That Saturday was cold,

and he had an extra 35-40

pounds on his back, with

blistered and bloody feet,

but the ruck march was

something he had to do.

Brazel’s trek started at

his home in New Lenox,

went down Nelson Road to

Old Plank Road Trail, and

he walked to Frankfort and

just a little past the bridge

that goes over LaGrange

Road, then turned around

and walked to Harry E.

Anderson VFW Post 9545

in New Lenox to finish.

“The number 20 always

stuck out to me, because

the suicides among the active

duty veterans is 20 a

day, 7,300 a year, which

is more than the number

we had killed in action in

Afghanistan and Iraq the

entire time we’ve been

there,” Brazel said. “I

did pushups every day at

11:11, being the 11th day

of the 11th month, which

is Veterans Day. I figured

I’d knock out 20 pushups

every day to represent the

20 that commit suicide.

It’s something I’ve done to

raise awareness.”

in Crete in 2008 before

acquiring Circle Tractor

this past January in Homer

Glen, which was a John

Deere dealer. After arriving

in Homer, the business

realized the space it

acquired was not right for

the owners’ vision.

“Our brand is a lot of

display, a nice big service

shop area, so we decided

that building would not

work for us there, and decided

to look for land or a

building,” co-owner Kaj

Moyer said.

As a result, the business

found a spot for a

new 27,000-square-foot

facility at 13639 159th

St. and celebrated with a

groundbreaking held Oct.

30 with Village of Homer

Glen officials. The plan is

for the new building to be

ready this coming July or

August.

“We’re looking forward

to the new building, for

sure,” Moyer said.

Poetry in OP

‘The Chair in

Grandma’s

Bedroom’

Lin Peterson

Orland Park resident

There’s a chair in grandma’s

bedroom

Where grandma likes to

read;

Where papa watches baseball

games

(And sometimes falls

asleep)

There’s a chair in grandma’s

bedroom

Its big and soft and blue;

I like to play behind it

And you would fit there

too!

There’s a chair in grandma’s

bedroom

And sometimes, in I

creep;

To read one of my storybooks,

But I won’t fall asleep!

There’s a chair in grandma’s

bedroom

But I’m too big for naps.

But sometimes papa lets

me rest

My eyes while in his lap.

From the Editor

Learn to save lives

BILL JONES

bill@opprairie.com

Before the birth of

our first child, my

wife and I took all

sorts of classes to gather

any information we could

before the hospital sent us

home with another human

being in our care. Most

of them were offered free

by the hospital, but one

of them cost $15: infant,

child and adult CPR.

There, we learned

how to perform CPR on

people of all ages in the

event that we encounter

someone not breathing.

We learned how to check

the airway on a choking

victim, how to properly

use an AED and much

more.

Thankfully, I’ve never

had to employ any of the

things I learned in

that class, and I hope I

make it through the rest

of my life with it proving

to be an unnecessary

$15 and three hours

spent.

But I’m happy we did

it either way — just in

case. And I was little bit

ashamed that we never

took the time up until that

point to do so.

As Thomas O’Brien

points out in this week’s

news cover story on Page

5, survival rates of cardiac

arrest drop significantly

outside of a hospital,

in large part because

too few people know how

to perform CPR or use

an AED. Neither of these

things are too complicated;

it just takes a little

bit of time and maybe a

few bucks to learn. And

it’s easy enough to find

places offering the education.

So, I’d like to echo his

call by asking readers

to take the time to learn

these skills. It could save

someone’s life.

Resident Poet

‘In the Silence’

Susanne Cabrini Marie

Orland Park resident

(For my friend the Rev.

Michael G. Foley)

After a long, difficult

day, set aside some

quiet time;

Because everybody

needs it--be they old or

in their prime.

It could be after dinner

or before you go to bed.

Just take a little while to

clear your weary head.

Shut the door on all the

noise; put in earplugs;

nix the light;

Then God will come to

you in the silence of the

night.

His voice won’t be like

thunder—all loud and

crude and brash.

It’ll be a soothing whisper

that’ll help you to

relax!

First remember any

good things that have

happened during the

day.

Thank Christ for blessings

great and small that

He has sent your way.

In quietude, you will

hear Him deep within

your heart,

Always ready to forgive,

heal and give a

brand new start!

Go to confession when

you know you’ve really

sinned,

Or just need to talk

about what’s deep “beneath

your skin”.

Say some prayers of

gratitude before exiting

the church,

For God is with you

now—He won’t leave

you “in the lurch”!

Family shares pumpkin tradition

Bill Jones, Editor

Holidays are filled with

traditions big and small

for many families. Those

traditions help give special

meaning to those big

days. They allow generations

to pass things along

to the next. They create

time for bonding. And

they can be tough to let

go.

For as long as she can

remember, Jade Hamilton,

17, of Orland Park,

has been carving pumpkins

for Halloween with

her family.

“As long as they could

put me in a chair, I was in

it, digging out the pumpkin

seeds,” Jade said with

a laugh.

For Jade and her parents,

Kristin and Ron,

the tradition developed

into an annual thing.

And it all starts with

Jade coming up with a

design.

“She is just very, very

creative, always has

been,” Kristin wrote in

an email to The Orland

Park Prairie. “She is in

numerous art class in

high school — won second

place last year for her

sculpture and honorable

mention the year before

for her drawings. She also

runs art classes for The

Bridge Teen Center.”

From there, Ron gets

carving, and Kristin

takes the pictures, many

of which have been submitted

over the years to

The Prairie’s Halloween

Pumpkin-Carving Contests.

“It’s definitely a team

effort,” Jade said. “That

just makes it a lot more

fun.”

Some years, their carvings

have been crafted

with a special ingredient:

a pumpkin they grew

themselves. Jade said

the family has a summer

home in Michigan, where

they grow the pumpkins.

“Sometimes they come

out weird, but we make it

work,” she said.

In fact, in 2017, a

unique shape helped inspire

a pumpkin based on

the character Sloth from

“The Gooines.” The family

has also painted pumpkins

and carved designs

into them. But Jade said

her favorite was a year

they had a big pumpkin

eating a little one, with

monster teeth giving the

former its bite.

“It just came out so perfect,”

she said.

This year’s pumpkin

— pictured on the Life &

Arts cover — looks like

an eyeball, complete with

a socket, lashes and some

bloodshot accents. Jade,

busy with work and lacrosse,

said the goal was

to come up with something

simpler this year.

Kristin added, “This

year we were all working,

so we wanted to still do it

but something easier than

carving the entire pumpkin,

so this is what we

came up with this year.”

It also may mark their

last as a group.

“She will be going

away to college next year,

so she will no longer be

Pictured is a pumpkin Jade Hamilton, 17, and her family

created for Halloween 2017. Photo submitted

home to help,” Kristin

wrote.

But Jade — who is committed

to Indiana Tech in

Fort Wayne for lacrosse

— is not so sure this was

the end. After all, she

said, the family’s place in

Michigan is only an hourand-a-half

from school.

“Maybe we’ll meet in

the middle,” she said.

The Dish

Barrel Club more than the sum of its steaks, spirits and stogies

Eatery switches

vibes from lunch to

dinner, focuses on

gatherings

Bill Jones, Editor

The Barrel Club’s Traces of Buffalo whiskey flight ($22) is one of 10 that offer guests

tastes of three different spirits — in this case W.L. Weller Special Reserve, E.H.

Taylor Small Batch and George Stagg Jr. — alongside optional bitters. Photos by Bill

Jones/22nd Century Media

At a quick glance, The

Barrel Club looks on paper

like something of a

throwback, with a steakheavy

dinner menu, a

drinks list that leans hard

on bourbon and a showcase

of cigar selections

for the smokers.

Make no mistake: Spirits

are the star of the show

at The Barrel Club. From

the membership program

that for $39 monthly sends

customers home with different

bottles of the Barrel

Club’s spirits and accessories

— think branded shot

glasses, ice ball silicones

and rocks glasses — to a

list that rivals most city

establishments for whiskey

enthusiasts, drinks are

undoubtedly the No. 1 attraction

at the Oak Lawn

establishment.

But the facade of the

building on 111th Street

near Cicero Avenue is

enough to let passersby

know the offerings are

more than first meets the

eye. The modern confines

hint at the wines Barrel

Club also proudly offers.

A patio with a fire pit welcomes

musical acts and

outdoor loungers alike.

The event spaces are designed

to attract both corporate

meetings and small

birthday gatherings (ask

to see The Little Pub). And

the lunch menu caters to a

family crowd more than

the nightlife seekers one

might otherwise imagine.

Barrel Club strives to be

more than the typical suburban

eatery, and it strives

to please a lot of different

people in the process.

As Director of Operations

April Koerber, an

Orland Parker, puts it, “It’s

downtown dining on the

south side of Chicago. The

food looks like a masterpiece.”

Behind that food is executive

chef Carlos De-

Leon, who approaches an

ingredient-focused menu

with a “less is best on the

plate” philosophy.

“The products that we

use here are great,” he

said.

They use Duke’s mayonnaise,

for instance, simply

because, DeLeon said,

“It’s delicious, the king of

mayos.”

Diners will find that

on the lobster roll ($16),

which Koerber cites as a

favorite for the simplicity

of its Maine lobster, mayo,

Old Bay and brioche.

The kitchen at Barrel

Club also takes the time

to make its own creme

fraiche — a three-day

process. And the roasted

chicken (for 2, $29) —

which is sliced in front of

customers — goes through

a 48-hour process.

“What you get out of

it is a crisp, seasoned-allthe-way-through

chicken,”

DeLeon said.

Among the sandwich

standouts for the lunch

crowd is the Cuban ($13),

featuring pork carnitas,

smoked ham, Chihuahua

cheese, dill pickle and

mustard on a telera roll.

“Its not a traditional Cuban,

but it’s damn close,”

DeLeon said.

The restaurant also has

some fun mixing influences

with items like the potato

and cheese pierogies

($9), which feature Yukon

Gold potatoes and Chihuahua

cheese for a combination

that is part Polish,

part Mexican, according to

DeLeon. Giardiniera finds

its way into Barrel Club’s

chopped salad ($13) for a

distinct Chicago tweak to

the classic.

And gluten-free and

vegetarians diners are not

forgotten, with options for

both highlighted on the

menus.

“You just try to keep it

balanced for people with

allergies,” DeLeon said.

The Barrel Club maintains

membership with the

Orland Park Area Chamber

of Commerce, and

Koerber, who previously

worked with several businesses

in Orland Park, said

she made the jump for a

new opportunity to work

with a restaurant that does

a spirits club. It also gives

her the opportunity to continue

to organize events,

including benefits for local

organizations Barrel Club

has done since its recent

opening.

Koerber said she has enjoyed

the new role because

Barrel Club tries to create

a “wow factor” for its

Oak Lawn’s Barrel Club offers sandwiches during

its lunch hours, including the pictured Barrel Dip

($14), featuring shaved rib-eye on a French roll, with

giardiniera, au jus and horseradish cream.

The beignets ($9) at Barrel Club are dusted in powdered

sugar, drizzled in chocolate and served warm with a

scoop of ice cream.

Virgin, assist me in

Sea, help me and show me,

herein you are my mother. Oh,

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

I humbly beseech you from

the bottom of my heart to succor

me in this necessity. There

Mary, conceived without sin,

pray for us who have recourse

to thee (3x). Holy Mother, I

place this cause in your hands.

Miraculous Prayer

Dear heart of Jesus in the past

I have asked for favors.

This time I ask you for this

very special one (mention

Favor). Take it dear Jesus and

place it within your own

broken heart where your father

sees it then in your merciful

eyes it will become your favor

not mine. Amen. - Tom

AREA SPORTS ROUNDUP

Farley aiding Michigan State in swimming

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

Last season, former

Sandburg swimming

standout Aidan Farley

posted the third all-time

Michigan State time in

the 100-yard freestyle

(44.29 seconds) and was

fourth all-time in the 200

free and 800 free relay

split time and helped the

400 free relay team to the

school’s second fastest

time.

This year, the junior

is not wasting any time

dominating. In a loss to

Northwestern on Nov.

2, Farley helped the 200

free relay team break a

home pool record with a

1:20.56. He also won the

100, 200 and 500 freestyle

events.

“Aidan Farley had probably

the best weekend I’ve

ever seen by a swimmer

here, maybe ever,” Spartans

coach Matt Gianiodis

said in a news release.

Farley enjoyed being

a part of history. “It was

really cool,” he said in a

news release. “I didn’t

know we were in contention

of breaking the pool

record so when I heard it

over the loudspeaker, that

was really awesome.”

It did not take T.J. Mc-

Farland long to find a new

Oakland A’s.

McFarland, a left-handed

reliever, pitched in 51

games and had no record

and a 4.82 ERA in his third

year with the D-Backs.

In four seasons with

Baltimore and three at

Arizona, McFarland

racked up an 18-14 mark

with a 4.07 ERA. His best

season was 2018 when he

posted a 2.00 ERA in 47

games with the Diamondbacks.

Changes in gymnastics

The area girls gymnastics

scene is vastly different

this season.

For many years, Andrew

had its own program

while Sandburg and Stagg

were involved in a co-op

effort.

Starting this season all

three District 230 teams

will form a co-op team,

which will be based at Andrew.

The boys gymnastics

team and the boys and

girls lacrosse teams have

all three district schools

banded together.

Veteran coach and former

Andrew gymnast Allison

Hack will serve as

coach. The first meet is a

home battle at 5:30 p.m.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

10 Questions

with Colleen Donnell

Colleen Donnell is a

junior at Sandburg. She’s

a top swimmer for the

Eagles and also plays

water polo.

How would you say

the swim season

went?

I think it’s gone pretty

well. Just the positivity

that we had the last few

months and how we had

fun with it.

The team finished

fourth at the

SouthWest Suburban

Conference Meet on

Nov. 2. How would

you say that meet

went for you and the

team?

I think the competition

here helped show

me to what a good time

is in all the events. In the

sectional [this weekend

at Lockport] I will probably

do the 50-freestyle

and all the relays. Everyone

was excited for conference,

It was the last

meet for a lot of people.

We had that energy and it

really helped me a lot in

the pool.

How long have you

been swimming?

I started swimming

when I was six. My

brother, Jack, was swimming

and I followed in

his footsteps. I first swam

for POSA [Palos-Orland

Swim Association].

Do you also play

water polo?

Yes. I swim and play

water polo and I like them

equally. I’ve been swimming

my whole life but I

think water polo is really

fun from the team aspect.

What is it that you

like about aquatic

sports?

I like sports more in the

water because I’m used

to swimming. I also like

swimming with my team

and being with them. So

there’s just a big team aspect.

What have you

learned from Sandburg

girls swimming coach,

Anna McBride?

I learned that hard work

and dedication pay off.

We’ve got to be there for

practice at 5:30 in the

morning and that pays off

in the end.

Do you have your own

vehicle and if so, do

you have a name for

it?

Yes. It’s my mom’s old

2005 mini van. My siblings,

Meghan, Claire,

Jack and myself named it

“Zoomer.” We just decided

to name it that. Now we

zoom around in it.

If you could be a

superhero, who would

you be and why?

Superman. Because I

PHOTO SUBMITTED

want to fly. That’s good

enough for me.

Do you plan to swim

or play water polo in

college?

Yes, but on a club team.

I don’t think I can compete

on the actual college team.

I haven’t started the process

yet but want to go to

the University of Wisconsin

- Madison and major in

engineering.

What’s the best thing

about being an athlete

at Sandburg?

It’s fun because so many

people come out and support

you. There’s a lot

of Sandburg pride at our

school.

Elite-8 season ends against two-time champion

5

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

As the final Marist kill

found its mark near a diving

Shelby Stefanon, the

Sandburg hitting star got

up and was quickly greeted

with a hug from teammate

Rachel Krasowski.

It was over.

This historic season,

with a lot more ups than

downs, came to and end

on Friday, Nov. 8, with a

25-21, 25-22 loss to the

Class 4A two-time defending

state champion

Marist in the Blue Island

Eisenhower Sectional

in front of an estimated

crowd of 1,500.

Two days prior, the

team celebrated its first

sectional title since 2004

with a 25-17, 25-17 victory

over District 230

rival Andrew to claim

the Sandburg Sectional

and tons of photos were

snapped on phones and

a few cameras of players,

coaches and parents

posing with the sectional

championship plaque.

That was a special night

for a special team that finished

the season 34-6.

“It’s a long time coming,

right?” Sandburg

coach David Vales said

minutes after the triumph

that allowed the Eagles to

compete in the Elite Eight.

“It’s a matter of getting

the opportunity and progressing

and moving forward.

You can finally say

you did it.”

Marist (38-2) can make

some history of its own

starting Friday, Nov. 15,

as the Redhawks will attempt

to become the fifth

team to win three straight

Illinois High School Association

state titles. Orland

Park’s Elise Ward,

a 5-foot-11 freshman

middle hitter who was

promoted to the varsity

squad during the season,

is on the RedHawks

roster.

Sandburg played Marist

tough as there were six

ties in the first set and

seven ties and three lead

changes in the second

set before the Redhawks

pulled off the win.

Stefanon had 11 kills,

Krasowski notched 20

digs and Ellie Watson was

a blocking machine with

five.

“It’s been so good,”

Watson said of the season.

“I never thought I would

be playing in a sectional

championship and a supersectional

with a chance

to go down state.”

Krasowski, who is

heading to DePaul next

season, enjoyed the 2019

team.

“It was like family,”

she said. “Whoever goes

in, we know that we have

each other’s back. Everyone

will do their job. It

feels like a weight is lifted

off your shoulders when

you have so much talent

on the team. You can trust

everyone.”

The season was rewarding

but not easy.

“I feel like every season

is hard,” Krasowski

said. “I feel like if you

put in the work, you want

to make it as hard as you

can to make yourself better.

Our season has been

tough with all the competition

that we played. We

were up for the challenge

and we were up for anything

that came our way.”

After winning the sectional

and taking hundreds

of photos, the alltime

Sandburg digs leader

was digging the accomplishment.

“To be a part of something

makes me feel like I am

on top of the world,” Krasowski

said. “These girls

worked their butts off. We

worked for each other and

I just love every single

one of them with all my

heart. This was a big team

effort and I’m very proud

of every single one of

them.”

Sophomore Sidona Rao

had 11 kills in the win

over Andrew, which drew

a loud crowd of more than

1,000 fans. Keegan Carey

added seven kills and Stefanon

added six kills and

13 digs. Krasowski had

FOOTBALL

Vaughn runs wild for 366 yards in

Providence’s win over Crete-Monee

RANDY WHALEN

Freelance Reporter

Aaron Vaughn literally

ran into some of his old

friends - and past them,

around them and through

them.

The Providence sophomore

running back, who

is from Crete, ran wild to

end the season of the Crete-

Monee football team,

which rostered many of

Vaughn’s Friends.

So does he feel bad about

that?

“A little bit,” he said before

pausing.

“Well, not really,” Vaughn

added. “It’s business.”

Vaughn made sure the

host Celtics took care of

business as he ran 26 times

for 366 yards and scored

four touchdowns. His best

performance helped Providence

pull away from the

Warriors for an unforgettable

61-37 victory in a Class

6A second round playoff

game on Saturday, Nov. 9

in New Lenox.

The 61 points are the

second most in Providence

postseason history. The record

Crete-Monee (10-1),

which was last year’s Class

6A state runner-up was hoping

to make its fourth state

title game appearance in

the past eight seasons. But

Vaughn had other ideas.

“I was nervous,” Vaughn

said. “I came out and felt

like I was going to puke.

These were the guys I grew

5

up with. I knew them and

they knew me. I couldn’t

sleep [Friday] night. I

woke up at six [Saturday

morning] and I was going

to sleep until eight.

Vaughn scored on runs of

three, 65, 42 and 33 yards.

along with junior tight

end Jameson Geers, helped

ground.

Girls Volleyball

Loss to JCA ends Providence’s

best playoff run since 2005

STEVE MILLAR

Contributing Editor

Orland Park’s Katianne Soltys and Providence

Catholic’s volleyball team enjoyed its best season since

2005. JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

Providence was playing

its best volleyball of

the year at the right time,

storming through its first

three playoff matches with

ease.

The Celtics won all three

in straight sets, and never

let an opponent reach 20

points.

That included a 25-19,

25-18 stomping of Marian

Catholic in the Class 3A

Joliet Catholic Sectional

semifinal Nov. 4, an especially

impressive result

considering Marian’s history

of success the last decade,

including a 3A state

championship in 2016.

The Spartans also beat

Providence earlier in the

season.

Providence earned its

way into a sectional final

for the first time since

2005. But the Celtics ran

into Joliet Catholic in its

own gym in the championship

match, and the

Angels’ postseason experience

and homecourt advantage

proved too much

to overcome.

Joliet Catholic won its

11th sectional title in the

last 17 years with a 25-

21, 25-20 victory over the

Celtics on Nov. 6.

Providence has still not

won a sectional championship

since 2001.

“I think the crowd really

made a difference,”

4

Providence senior Izabela

Gorys said. “It was just a

lot of mental things for

us. We played our hearts

out, and I’m really proud

of every single one of our

girls.”

Gillain Peterson had

seven kills to lead the Celtics

(23-17). Juliana Warfield

added six and Gorys

had five.

Our staff’s predictions for the top games in the quarterfinals of the playoffs

There are still just two teams left from our area

– Providence and Lincoln-Way East. Could we

see two teams in the state title game in DeKalb

two days after belching up our Thanksgiving Day

meals? It is a possibility.

No trophy but Eagles have third-best season in CC

JEFF DEGRAW

Freelance Reporter

4

Ben Giblin, of Sandburg, finished 11th overall in the

Class 3A state cross country meet to help his team take

fourth place.

When you run your best

on the biggest stage it’s

all supposed to work out

in the end, but on Saturday,

Nov. 9, on the famed

Detweiller Park course in

Peoria, the 3A state boys

cross country race was

historic and a little disappointing

for Sandburg.

The Eagles fell three

points short of the thirdplace

state trophy, as they

scored 156 points, with

third place York at 153.

St. Charles East was the

winner at 64 followed

by Wheaton-Warrenville

South with 68.

The last time the Eagles

won a state trophy

was in 2015 when they

won the state title. This

is the third-best finish

in program history and

the sixth time in seven

years they finished in the

top 10.

“We were close and

we had guys run personal

bests today,” Sandburg

coach John O’Malley

said. “It’s hard to get all

seven to run their best

on the same day, that’s

our sport, but I feel good

about the outcome. Sure,

everyone will look for that

one second here or there,

or that one place, but it

was madness out there

today.”

That madness O’Malley

was talking about was the

breakneck pace that the

race started with on a picture-perfect

day for racing,

and what happened

when it was all over.

The record of 13 minutes,

50.2 seconds that

Craig Virgin set in 1972

over the three-mile course

was broken by Hersey senior

John Methner, who

won his second individual

title with a 13:49.86.

“Over the years we

have been chipping away

at that record, but it’s hard

to do because everything

needs to be perfect, from

the weather, the competition,

your training,”

O’Malley said. “I know

we have had some great

runners and it was a tough

record, it became sort of

mystical. I would have

loved to be out there today

racing, you couldn’t have

asked for a better weather

day. Everyone has heard

about that record, but now

so many have seen this

one and I really think this

is good for the sport.

“It was special to witness

that and everyone in

the race can say they were

there, they ran in that race.

The atmosphere was great

and I can tell you that this

race, on this course is the

best tradition that the state

has in any sport, hands

down.”

Sandburg had two All-

State performances by

virtue of a top 25 finish as

Will Giblin placed ninth in

14:34.64 and Ben Giblin

finished 11th in 14:34.88.

There were four runners,

between eighth and 11th

who ran 14:34 and were

separated by the photo at

the finish.

“That race went really

fast at the start,” Ben

Giblin said. “But, we

went after it and then that

last 400 meters coming

up the hill was just crazy.

There were so many of us

coming up there together.

I don’t know if I’ve ever

been part of such a crazy

finish. I knew coming

up to the finish that if I

NOW THAT’S CLOSE

Four runners, two from Sandburg, crossed the finish line at almost the same

time at the Class 3A state cross country meet. Here is how they finished:

PLACE NAME SCHOOL TIME

8th William Hauenstein Wheaton-Warrenville South 14:34.23

9th Will Giblin Sandburg 14:34.64

10th Daniel Klysh York 14:34.74

11th Ben Giblin Sandburg 14:34.88

hit a certain time I could

get my name on the alltime

list for our school.

It’s important to know

the history of your sport

and we have such a great

tradition at Sandburg,

you know some of those

things.

“When you finish, and

you know you have done

your best there is nothing

else you can do and today

it was just a few points

short of a trophy.”

Sam Rodriguez placed

28th for the Eagles in

14:56 and was followed

by Ismail Tineh in 58th

(15:09) and TJ Cosler in

92nd (15:22) to round

out the top five scorers.

Griffin Lehnhardt placed

167th and Ahmed Alhayek

was 181st.

Orland Park’s Thomas

Leonard ran as an individual

for Marist and placed

49th in 15:03.

On the girls side for

Sandburg, junior Brielle

Morris placed 170th

and Paige Killen finished

201st.

“This was the first time

to be here and it was exciting,”

Morris said. “I

can tell you the one thing

we both learned was not

to go out so fast. But it

was fun, we learned a lot

today and hopefully will

be back next year.”

“With this experience,

now we have to carry this

over to track and get to

that state meet,” Killen

said.

SOME COOL THINGS

ABOUT THE FALL

SPORTS SEASON

1. Volleyball Victories

Coach David Vales’

Sandburg’s volleyball

team (above)

won its first sectional

title since 2004.

2. CC back in the top

10

In five of the

previous six years,

Sandburg’s boys

cross country team

finished in the top

10 in the state in

Class 3A. After last

season’s 16th-place

finish, the Eagles

were back with a

fourth-place finish

this year.

3. Speaking of top

10…

Sandburg’s girls

tennis team tied for

10th place in the

IHSA meet, which

was its best finish

ever. The doubles

team of Julia Canellis-Jayme

Gross was

named all-state for

its top 16 finish.

THURSDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK

Sandburg/Andrew

volleyball atmosphere

was really ‘rockin’

Jeff Vorva

Sports Editor

I

dedicate this column

to a guy named Grant

Boxleitner.

Grant is a big-shot news

anchor at Suncoast News

Network in Florida.

But a few decades ago,

he was a freelance sports

reporter for a paper I

worked at in McHenry

County. He was a really

enthusiastic young man

back in the day. Maybe

over-enthusiastic at times.

But that was still cool.

Once, we sent him to a

Thursday night Northern

Illinois University football

game as the Huskies

hosted an opponent people

heard of: Kansas State.

About 15 or 20 minutes

before kickoff, he called

the paper. I answered the

phone.

“THIS PLACE IS

ROCKIN’!!!” he bellowed.

Forgive me for the

capital letters and extra

exclamation points, but

since he punctured a part

of my left eardrum that

night, I feel entitled.

Anyway, “This place is

rockin!” became an inside

catchphrase in the office.

So, fast-forward to Nov.

6. Andrew and Sandburg’s

girls volleyball team were

set to square off in Orland

Park for a Class 4A sectional

championship.

There was so much

noise, I turned to Sandburg

assistant principal

Greg Gardner and

couldn’t resist saying

my best Grant Boxleitner

voice “This place is

rockin’!”

He said something like

“Yes, it is.”

Oh, and we were still

minutes away from first

serve.

Sandburg won the

match 25-17, 25-17 to win

its first sectional title since

2004 but maybe because

of all the racket, it felt

much closer.

Between the 992 paid

patrons and a host of those

who were on a pass list,

more than 1,000 people

were in the gym.

Every one of the 84

points during the 48-minute

pressure-cooker environment

received thunderous

reactions, mostly from

leather-lunged students

from both sides.

Sandburg students helped make it an electric atmosphere in the volleyball sectional

title game on Nov. 6. JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

A couple of stretches

in the match, I had to go

in the coaches’ office to

take care of some things

and even with the door

closed, it was easy to tell

who scored points by the

bellowing.

I’ve been to Marist/

Mother McAuley matches

in the past during playoffs

and even during the

regular season in recent

years and this Sandburg/

Andrew match compared

with those barn-burners.

The beauty of a match

like this is that this

atmosphere will be hard

to duplicate. The state

tournament, held in huge

Redbird Arena in Normal,

cannot come close to what

happened in Orland Park

on this night.

“I love it – it’s a District

230 rivalry and everyone

came out to watch us

play,” Andrew coach Emily

Connolly said. “This

was the first time my girls

were playing in anything

big like this. You try to

prepare for it as much as

you can. It was awesome.

The amount of fans that

we had was as many as

I’ve ever seen in five

years coaching.”

Sandburg Athletic

Director Tom Freyer

Tweeted to the world

it was the best sporting

event in his four years at

the school.

Sandburg coach David

Vales was also impressed.

“There was a buzz all

day in school,” Vales said.

“Sometimes Sandburg is

too big to get that kind of

atmosphere. But this was

great. I’m sure Andrew

was hoppin’ in school

all day. They have been

hoppin’ (since winning the

regional title on Oct. 31.).”

“We had a little feel

for this in the hallway.

We appreciate everyone

who came out to make it

special for the girls.”

These two teams met on

Sept, 26 in the Eagle gym

with Sandburg taking a

25-11, 25-16 victory.

The atmosphere was not

quite the same.

“No, no, no, no,” Vales

said. “A lot of times, you

get in the middle of the

season and a lot of other

sports are practicing or

playing. The football

team, soccer team, tennis

team, the cross country

teams, the swimming team

– they are all in-season.

Once things start to wind

down they come out and

support us. All of our athletes

support each other.”

In the four-figure attendance

total were some

familiar folks.

“I like to see a lot of

alumni faces,” Vales said.

“I like seeing the faces of

a lot of parents of daughters

who have played

with us the last 20 years.

That’s special. It was nice

to be able to get them that

sectional plaque.”

It was a rockin’ accomplishment.

LISTEN UP

“We worked for each other and I just love every

single one of them with all my heart.”
