Hope Covenant pastor takes case for shelter to Village Board

Residents speak in

support of shelter,

officials respond

Jon DePaolis

Freelance Reporter

The battle over whether

or not to allow an Orland

Park church to operate a

night-a-week, seasonal

homeless shelter spilled

over from a Cook County

courtroom to the Orland

Park Village Board meeting

on Nov. 18.

Supporters of Hope

Covenant Church’s Beds

Plus partnership filled Village

Hall for the meeting

to express dissatisfaction

with the way the Village

has handled the matter recently

— most notably by

appealing to the court to

stop the church from operating

the shelter until it

comes into compliance

with various Village codes

and ordinances cited based

on a change of use after the

shelter’s opening.

Hope Covenant Church

Pastor Jon Fogel addressed

the Village Board during

public comment, asking

the Village to stop with

the “frivolous injunctions

and restraining orders that

threaten the most vulnerable

members of our society.”

“As this continues, I fear

that the reputation of our

great village will continue

to be degraded because

of your actions to be antihomeless,

anti-poor and

anti-church,” Fogel said.

“But it does not have to

be this way. Cease litigation.

For the love of God,

stop trying to reclassify my

church as a hotel. It’s ridiculous.

Instead, come alongside

the church to care for

the people of our city who

are down on their luck and

hurting.”

Fogel also questioned the

real motive behind trying to

block the church from operating

the shelter.

“If this is not really about

public safety, and if this is

not really about the protection

of individuals at our

shelter, but instead [is] a

veiled attack with the goal

of forcing the most vulnerable

of Orland Park back

on the streets where you

can choose to ignore them

for the next 30 years like

you’ve ignored them for

southsideirishgifts.com

the last 30 years, then we

the citizens of Orland Park

will not be silent,” he said.

Fogel’s comments — as

well as those from the public

— came after a 16-minute

presentation by Village

staff detailing the history

of building codes and the

various ways in which the

Village thinks the church is

in violation.

“Building codes were

established originally to

protect the health, safety

and welfare of all equally,”

Village Manager George

Koczwara also read off a

list of what he termed “frequently

asked questions”

regarding the homeless

shelter at Hope Covenant

Church. In particular, he

responded to the debate

over whether it is more important

to just have a place

for the homeless to stay —

albeit with code violations

— as opposed to being on

the street.

“Unfortunately, the Village

does not have two standards

of building codes,”

he said. “The building code

that we have to follow is

the building code.”

Residents speak out

During public comment,

Laila Sadat, a 13-year Orland

Park resident and

graduate student at De-

Paul University, said she

was disappointed in the

Village’s “attempt to shut

down the Beds program at

Hope Covenant Church —

especially as temperatures

plunge to record lows.”

“I believe it is not only

our social responsibility to

take care of one another to

the best of our ability but

that the true measure of a

community is how well we

serve those in need,” she

said.

Sadat asked the Village

to start collaborating with

the church to move forward.

Library patrons build memories at Family Fort Night storytime

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

Some things never go

out of style, and creating

one-of-a-kind forts out

of blankets has inspired

young architects for generations

On Thursday, Nov. 21,

the Orland Park Public

Library invited patrons to

take part in a Family Fort

Night during a “very special”

edition of its Night

Owls reading program —

a free 30-minute storytime

program offered weekly

at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday

nights — in conjunction

with the State of Illinois’

Family Reading Night.

“It’s Family Reading

Night, so people all over

Illinois are doing something

similar — getting together,

reading and sharing

space,” explained Vanessa

Fernandez, a Youth Services

reference librarian.

“In honor of that, we like

to do something a little different

than we usually do,

so we have the tents out.

We’ll do a regular 15-minute

storytime, and then

we’ll break off and we’ll

all do our own reading in

our own little corners.”

Fernandez and Darnetta

Bolton, another Youth Services

reference librarian,

chose the book “Pete the

Cat and His Four Groovy

Buttons” for its Family

Fort Night selection. To

add to the fun, they threw

around felt buttons and incorporated

sound effects

into the reading.

Following a brief singalong

and the “Pete the

Cat” reading, families

broke into groups, grabbed

a book and cozied up in

tents for the Fort Night

portion of the evening.

Some attendees brought

their own blankets to further

fortify the tents.

This is the second year

the Orland Park Library

has hosted a Family Fort

Night Very Special Night

Owls, and staff cleared

up any confusion with the

event’s title — similar to

a popular video game —

during last year’s program.

“It was funny, because

last year we had a lot of

misinterpretations where

people came in wanting

to play ‘Fortnite,’” Fernandez

said with a laugh.

Darnetta Bolton, a Youth Services reference librarian, reads “Pete the Cat and His

Four Groovy Buttons” during the Very Special Night Owls: Family Fort Night.

“Building forts is such

a classic experience. It’s

such a fun thing to do, and

it’s something you don’t

get to normally do at the

library.”

Orland Park resident

Kristina Jakimova said she

always enjoys bringing

her kids, 6-year-old Filip

and 3-year-old Arianna to

Night Owls events at the

library.

“The kids love it,” Kristina

said. “I also like that

there are older kids here

who read to the smaller

kids.”

At the conclusion of

the program, attendees

received Family Reading

Night bookmarks, detailing

five ways to become

a great reader. Read every

day, read about things you

like and use your library

often were among the tips.

Bolton explained that library

staff members enjoy

Night Owls just as much

as the patrons.

“This is something that

helps make lasting family

memories and ties a

love of reading to something

special for the kids,”

Bolton said. “That’s why

we like it, too.”

D135 schools wrap

month of events in

tribute to veterans

Mary Compton

Freelance Reporter

The celebration was

ready to begin. The placemats

were right where

they needed to be. Red,

white and blue balloons

decorated the tables.

Students at Century Jr.

High were just waiting for

their special guests: local

veterans.

Event organizers Kim

DeVries and Carrie Hallman

both had special reasons

to join in the celebration.

“We’ve been doing this

event at Century for 19

years,” said DeVries, who

is a social studies teacher

at the school. “My grandpa,

my father and fatherin-law

are all veterans.

Veterans hold a special

place in my heart. I feel

they should be honored

every year.”

During the month of

November, Orland School

District 135 held a number

of veterans celebrations,

beginning Nov. 7 at

High Point, where there

was an assembly, and then

students and their special

veterans made cards for

the troops. Century hosted

the final veterans event

on Nov. 20, and students

honored their veterans

with breakfast and music

by school’s band. The

Century choir sang the

“Star-Spangled Banner”

at the event.

The event had a few

World War II veterans

present, including

DeVries’ grandfather.

“He’s come to this every

year and he’s the most

patriotic person you’ll

ever meet,” DeVries said,

adding that her father and

father-in-law both served

in the Navy during the

Vietnam War. “This is so

important to us.”

John Bryk, interim superintendent

for D135,

has served the Illinois Air

National Guard for 36

years.

“I enjoyed my time and

still do,” Bryk explained.

“It’s important for me to

thank the veterans here for

paving the way for various

freedoms throughout

history. As long as we

keep doing that, and appreciate

their service and

sacrifice, and for students

of this district as well as

other students to realize

what men and women

have done to provide them

with opportunities, is a

great thing.”

Bryk attended the

majority of the veteran

events, and after he completed

his welcome to

everyone at the final one

of the month, State Sen.

Michael Hastings gave

thanks to those in attendance.

“I come from a military

family,” said Hastings,

who served in Iraq. “My

grandfather was a Special

Forces officer, My brother

and I went to West Point.

I’ve had the opportunity

to serve this great country

in time of war.

“I now serve in Springfield”

he laughs. I take

these experiences and

teach them to young people

to get them to serve.

nation’s population serves

in the military. We’re

begging for more and

more younger people to

get involved in service

As a veteran, that’s our

moral obligation to give

back.”

Hallman said she plans

to continue this breakfast

for as long as she can.

Police arrest juvenile in connection with Nov. 17 armed robberies

Bill Jones, Editor

9

Police have arrested a

juvenile in connection with

a pair of armed robberies

reported Nov. 17 in Orland

Park.

The juvenile was arrested

around 1:30 p.m.

and charged with armed

robbery, along with several

other charges related

to the case, according to

a Facebook post from the

Orland Park Police Department.

Citing juvenile laws,

no further information is to

be released related to the

arrest.

Police on Nov. 17 asked

for the public’s help in locating

three people — but

has addressed only two in

subsequent posts — who

allegedly committed two

armed robberies that afternoon.

Lt. Ken Rosinski said

more than two people were

involved with the spree

In updates posted over

the course of the week,

A composite sketch and surveillance images released by police show the suspects from two armed robberies that reportedly occurred Nov. 17

in Orland Park. Images submitted

the department noted that

around noon on Nov. 17,

a couple in the 9100 block

of Helen Lane witnessed

their neighbor’s vehicle being

burglarized by a man

described as black, slender

and in his teens or early

20s. As they called police

about the burglary, another

male — described as black,

in his teens or early 20s

— approached them, carrying

a metal, semiautomatic

pistol, according to a post.

He allegedly demanded a

purse and wallet from the

couple and then fled from

police in a stolen 2012 Jeep

Grand Cherokee.

Around 3:30 p.m. the

same day, the same males

came back to town and approached

someone sitting

in a vehicle in the 14300

block of Deer Haven Lane

but were unable to gain access

to the man, according

to the post. They again fled

in the Jeep, police said.

One of the suspects

originally was described

by police as a black male

between 25-30 years old,

5-foot-6, slender, and last

seen wearing a creamcolored

sweater and carrying

a satchel. The

second was described as a

black male in his 20s, between

5-foot-3 and 5-foot-

5, roughly 140 pounds,

featuring a smaller build

with a “frizzy, closercut

hair.” He was last

seen wearing a red vest

with a dark undershirt.

Information about the

third suspect was not available

at the time, and a third

suspect has not been mentioned

in subsequent posts.

The stolen Jeep Cherokee

was found in Blue

Island, according to an

update from police. The

suspects were not located

at that time.

Orland Park Police Cmdr.

Eric Rossi noted by email

the robberies were random

in nature, but no one was

hurt in either incident. He

declined to answer other

questions about the case.

“At this time it is an ongoing

investigation, and we

are not releasing any additional

information which

may jeopardize the case,”

he said.

The men are wanted in

other jurisdictions for purse

thefts and armed robberies,

police added in a Facebook

post.

Anyone who sees someone

matching the aforementioned

descriptions is asked to

contact Orland Park police

at (708) 349-4111, (708)

349-8477 or crimetips@

Yvette M. Love, 56, of

10821 Forest Ave. in Chicago,

was charged Nov. 5

with felony theft after she

allegedly took $607.10

over the course of six

instances between Oct.

18 and Nov. 2 from a

department store where

she worked at Orland

Square.

The store reportedly

started investigating her

on Oct. 31, when it discovered

money had been missing

from her cash drawers.

She was captured at least

once on video concealing

money, police said.

Nov. 3

• Brandon M. Nelson,

49, of 8108 Saint James

Drive in Orland Park, was

charged with failing to

reduce speed to avoid an

accident, driving on a revoked

license, leaving the

scene of an accident, failing

to give aid/information,

failure to notify police

of an accident, illegal

transportation of alcohol,

improper use of registration

and no proof of insurance

after he allegedly

struck a Mazda from behind

while driving a 2001

Ford F-250 Supercab near

the intersection of 143rd

Street and 82nd Avenue.

The 68-year-old in the

Mazda reportedly stopped

at 143rd Street for a light

while traveling northbound

on 82nd Avenue

when the F250 struck the

vehicle. That driver got

out of the vehicle to talk

to Nelson, and the truck

backed up and drove

around the vehicle, taking

a right onto 143rd Street,

according to the report.

Someone provided registration

for the vehicle, and

the Ford was found unoccupied

at Cambridge and

Woodward Drives, police

said. The vehicle was registered

to Nelson and had

some of his mail inside of

it, according to the report.

Police also reportedly

found three open bottles

of vodka with “small”

amounts of alcohol in

them, as well as a McDonald’s

cup with a lemon and

an odor of alcohol, inside

of the vehicle.

Nelson was located and

arrested. He was using the

registration of a Jeep on

the vehicle, police added.

Oct. 30

• Madison R. Riemersma,

21, of 7509 175th Place in

Tinley Park, was charged

with driving too fast for

conditions, leaving the

scene of a property damage

crash, improper lane

usage/leaving the roadway

and operating uninsured

motor vehicle after

she allegedly struck a

tree near the intersection

of Cordoba Court and El

Cameno Real Drive with

the 2016 Nissan Altima

she was driving. Police reportedly

found the vehicle

with front-end damage, in

the grass, unoccupied and

locked.

Damage was done to a

tree 3 feet in front of the

vehicle, according to the

report. The registration of

the vehicle led to Riemersma,

and her phone was

found in the 9800 block of

Cordoba, police said.

“As leaders, I urge you

to take righteous steps forward,

so that families no

different than yours and no

different than mine have

a warm place to sleep at

night,” she said.

Richard Foist, also an

Orland Park resident, said

he wanted the community

to not only be known for

its wealth, beautiful subdivisions

and shopping “but

also to be known for helping

the least of these.”

Regina Knapp, an 18-

year resident of Orland

Park and a retired Orland

School District 135 teacher,

said she was “deeply

saddened that our Village

has turned its back on this

effort.”

“My brother died after

10 years on the street with

only a backpack and some

loose change,” she shared.

“I am just saying, from

a humanitarian aspect,

I’d like to see the Village

working together to make

this effort work. There are

homeless people out there.”

Diana Howard, an Orland

Park resident and a

veteran, said she took offense

to the Village’s handling

of the situation with

the church.

“You wore the same

uniform that I did, which

makes this even more deplorable

to me,” she said

to the mayor. “Anyone

who has ever worn a uniform

understands that we

are here to serve and protect

— not only the rich

but all. Even more important,

those who cannot help

themselves. With the number

of homeless among the

veterans being so high, I

have to believe that some

that you are denying a safe

place to lay their head at

night are veterans. You can

use the codes as an excuse

“Celebrate the Sounds

of Christmas”

all you want, but I don’t

think anybody here including

yourself believes that

that is the true reason this is

happening.”

Tina Rounds, the executive

director of Beds Plus,

also spoke during public

comment.

“We have 31 years of

successfully and safely operating

shelters in a wide

variety of communities,”

she said, before stating she

would like to sit down with

Pekau for further conversation.

Rounds also disagreed

with the timeline the Village

presented as to when

it was first informed about

the Beds Plus program at

Hope Covenant. She said

she first reached out to the

mayor’s office in April. She

also noted that of the many

communities the program

has worked with to establish

shelters, Orland Park

was the first one that “has

required us to change classification.”

Board members respond

During Village Board

comments at the end of

the meeting, Trustee James

Dodge said he recently

spent some time at the shelter

with Fogel and Rounds.

“I learned a lot that was

not obvious to me when I

was part of a unanimous

decision to say, ‘Let’s start

the litigation trail,’” Dodge

said. “I’m sorry, but I

would have thought differently

had I known.”

After his visit, Dodge said

he had a change of heart.

“I saw sprinklers, and I

saw staff — and I did not

perceive a whole hell of a

lot of risk to a population

who needed a warm bed,”

he said.

Dodge said he also took

a picture of the temperature

that night, and it was 9 degrees.

“We’ve got some work

to do,” he said. “I, now,

personally, don’t necessarily

agree with what I think

was our legal theory going

into the court, which is that

this is a change in use. So,

I’m going to have some

very pointed questions for

staff and the attorney when

the time is right.”

Ultimately, Dodge said

he would like to see the

Village find a compromise.

Meanwhile, Trustee

Cynthia Nelson Katsenes

thanked everyone for attending.

“You can see the passion

in how you feel,” she

said. “I appreciate that.

That is human compassion.

We need to be a nicer

world, but we have to work

together. We will work together.

But I think it is important

to understand that

all of us have a role.”

Katsenes said she wants

the negativity to end.

“We have to look out

for safety, and we have to

look out for a lot of different

things,” she said. “But

we’re not mean.”

Later, Pekau admitted

that there were “strong

feelings on the issue.” But

he said the proper processes

were not followed by the

church, which is why the

Nov. 18 meeting was the

first time such a public discussion

was taking place at

the board level.

“If they had been, you

would have had the opportunity

to be heard three

times: at the planning commission,

at committee and

at the board,” he said. “Unfortunately,

these opportunities

were denied to you

and to all of our citizens

on this issue because Beds

Plus and Hope Covenant

Church decided not to follow

the proper processes.”

Pekau further said the

actions of Beds Plus and

Fogel “do not engender a

spirit of working together.”

“As your mayor, I will

not ignore the law,” he said.

“I take my oath of office

seriously and the Village’s

laws seriously. Ordinances

and zoning process must be

followed by everyone, and

must be enforced equally

and fairly. I have not heard

anyone suggest that we

change our laws, ordinance

or processes, which tells

me that no one thinks the

laws, ordinance or processes

are inappropriate or need

changing.”

After Pekau finished his

comments and asked for a

motion to go into executive

session, a woman stood up

and began audibly praying

for Pekau and the Village

Board to reconsider their

actions.

An issue far from finished

After the meeting, Pekau

said he would not be able to

comment on the matter further

because of the pending

litigation.

But Fogel wanted to address

several of the points

brought up by the Village

during its presentation,

such as the assertion that

it was the church that first

brought in lawyers.

“We asked a member of

our church who happens to

be an attorney to respond

to a very firm letter,” Fogel

said. “I had a very firm

conversation with [former

interim Village Manager]

Tom Dubelbeis that was

very unwavering, where

he was making very significant

statements. I asked

for the former leadership

[chairperson at Hope Covenant],

who happens to also

be an attorney who communicates

often with municipalities

and other ways, to

simply just respond to this.

“We’ve not yet paid a

lawyer. We’ve not yet incurred

that cost. Every lawyer

who has come to us to

work with us has been pro

bono.”

Fogel also disputed the

Village’s timeline, stating

that on Aug. 5, he attended

a Village meeting to let

them know he was intending

to open a night-a-week,

seasonal, temporary homeless

shelter at Hope Covenant

starting in October.

“For the timeline to begin

anywhere [after] that

date is specifically disingenuous,”

he said.

Fogel also noted the

court did not grant the Village

some of the reliefs it

sought.

“As a judge ruled today,

there is no emergency to

immediately cease operations

of the shelter,” Fogel

said.

The judge Nov. 18 ordered

Hope Covenant to

install smoke and carbon

monoxide detectors,

though. And the Village

acknowledged in a Nov. 21

press release the church did

so Nov. 19, before its Tuesday

evening shelter. It says

the detectors were installed

in sleeping rooms, tested

and in working order.

“This step toward code

compliance makes the

space significantly safer

for visitors and overnight

guests,” the release reads.

Fogel said the shelter is a

net gain for the village.

“Ultimately, the shelter

makes our community

safer — which has always

been our intention and our

position,” he said.

The Village further noted

it is “in discussions” with

the church to “resolve the

matter as expeditiously as

possible.”

D135 narrows superintendent

search to two final candidates

Staff Report

The Orland School District

135 School Board

Nov. 21 announced in a

letter its two finalists in its

superintendent search.

They are John Bryk and

Sara Paul.

Byrk is the interim superintendent,

and assistant

superintendent of finance

and operations for D135.

Paul is currently the assistant

superintendent for

teaching and learning at

White Bear Lake Area

Schools in White Bear

Lake, Minnesota.

Ray and Associates

Inc. was chosen by the

School Board and led the

search. After numerous

stakeholder-specific focus

groups and open community

sessions, along

with input from community

leaders, staff, parents

and students, the School

Board created the selection

criteria to guide the

search firm in its screening

process.

Fifty-five candidates

submitted applications,

and at the conclusion of

the screening process,

Ray and Associates recommended

eight candidates

to advance in the

hiring process.

The search firm conducted

preliminary interviews

and reference

checks of each of the candidates.

The School Board

reviewed all applications,

resumes and letters of recommendation

for each of

the candidates, as well as

a video interview in which

each candidate answered

the same three questions.

As a result, the Board

invited four of the candidates

for in-person interviews.

The School Board concluded

that Bryk and

Paul were best suited to

promote the vision of the

district, and best serve the

needs of its students, according

to the letter.

The next phase is an arranged

site visit at each

of the finalist’s current

school districts. Laura

Berry and Sandra Kulak

are to represent the School

Board at each site visit.

During the site visit,

there will be meetings

with the candidate’s administration,

School

Board and union representative,

as well as a

certified teacher and a

member of the candidate’s

support staff.

Both site visits are to

be completed before the

next Special Board Meeting

scheduled for Dec. 9.

At that meeting, in closed

session, the School Board

is to review the results of

the site visits and determine

the next step in the

process.

Orland Park Police participates in

Thanksgiving traffic safety campaign

Travelers urged

to buckle up,

designate a sober

driver

Submitted by Village of

Orland Park

As Illinoisans gear

up for one of the busiest

travel times of the year,

the Orland Park Police

Department announced its

plans for a traffic safety

campaign focusing on

impaired and unbuckled

drivers.

According to the Illinois

Department of

Transportation, 15 motor

vehicle crash fatalities

occurred in Illinois over

the 2018 Thanksgiving

holiday weekend. Five of

the 15 deaths occurred in

crashes involving at least

one driver who had been

drinking.

The Orland Park Police

Department is partnering

with the Illinois State Police

and local law enforcement

across Illinois for

the increased statewide

effort. The high-visibility

crackdown was to begin

Nov. 22, run through the

holiday weekend into the

early morning hours of

Dec. 2.

The “Click It or Ticket”

and “Drive Sober or Get

Pulled Over” campaigns

are funded by federal traffic

safety funds administered

by IDOT. The crackdown

runs concurrently

with a media campaign

reminding motorists that

impaired driving has “Life

or Death” consequences.

The Orland Park Prairie’s

Standout Student

Sponsored by Marquette Bank

Tasnime Kadri,

Morgan Park Academy

senior

Tasnime Kadri was chosen

as The Orland Park Prairie’s

Standout Student because of

her academic accomplishments.

What’s your favorite class and

why?

My favorite class at MPA has

been my junior year English

class with Dr. [Eileen] Kicmal.

I really enjoyed the in-depth

discussions we had. They gave

me a better understanding of

my peers. I also have a genuine

love for writing because it

challenges my mind.

What’s one thing that stands

out about your school?

It’s a smaller school than

most. Having a small school

has far more advantages than

disadvantages. For instance, if

a student is having trouble with

a lesson in a smaller school,

the teacher is able to have the

one-on-one time that is needed,

which might not happen in a

larger school.

Also, one major element

that only a small school can

provide is inclusiveness. In a

bigger school, inclusiveness is

difficult, because certain activities

are only able to incorporate

a limited amount of people.

But, at MPA, students are not

only able to join their team and

club of choice but can thrive in

them, as well.

photo submitted

What’s your best memory from

school?

The memory that comes

to mind is performing in last

year’s Upper School theater

production, “The Mystery of

Edwin Drood.” I truly came

into my own during the making

of that play. I learned things

about myself and others that

I otherwise wouldn’t have if

I hadn’t joined. It was such a

wonderful experience, and I’m

really looking forward to this

year’s production.

What do you like to do when

not in school or studying?

During my free time, I love

to be with my friends and family.

I also love doing calming

activities, such as reading or

drawing. But, on longer breaks,

I travel to other countries. I

usually go to visit family in

places like Algeria and Canada

Whom do you look up to and

why?

I have great respect for my father.

He is the kindest and most

hardworking person I know.

What I admire the most about

him is that he has such a positive

outlook on life. Being raised in

that way has really given me

faith in myself that I couldn’t

have learned in any other way.

Standout Student is a weekly feature

for The Orland Park Prairie.

Nominations come from Orland

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

Oak Prairie Junior High

students perform their

rendition of beloved story

It was a sweet world

made from pure imagination.

Students from Oak Prairie

Junior High performed

their rendition of “Willy

Wonka Jr.” on Nov. 15 and

16 at Ludwig School.

The cast featured nearly

30 students, many of whom

played multiple parts. Students

grades 6-8 displayed

their talents in their theatrical

rendition of the classic

Roald Dahl novel, though

many moments in the play

paid homage to the iconic

Gene Wilder film.

Co-directed by Nicole

Tolentino and Anissa Danley,

the play performed in

front of a sold-out crowd

on opening night.

“We’re the ones with the

biggest gym and a stage,”

said Lisa Lyke, principal

of Ludwig School, in reference

to the performance

venue. “We had the opportunity

yesterday for them

to perform the first act for

[Ludwig] students, and

they did a really great job.”

The audience reception

amplified Lyke’s praise.

Every act was met with

a round of applause — a

confirmation of the hard

work the performers have

put in throughout the year.

“The crowd exceeded

our expectations; we actually

ran out of tickets,”

Danley said. “It was

opening night, so there’s

always room for improvement,

but I’m happy with

the performance tonight.”

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

D159 superintendent to

retire June 30

Mokena School District

159 Superintendent Don

White announced in a letter

to the district’s School

Board members his intention

to retire effective June

30, 2020.

The letter appears in

the board packet for the

district’s Nov. 20 regular

meeting.

“It is with very mixed

emotions that I am writing

to notify you that I plan

to retire at the end of this

school year,” White wrote.

“This will be effective at

the end of the work day on

June 30, 2020. It has been

my true honor to serve as

a public school district superintendent

for [19] years

and as an educator for [33]

years; with the last two

years being a joyous capstone.

In fact, these two

years have reinforced my

belief that a group of dedicated

people working as a

team can accomplish great

things in service to children

and the community.”

White was elected by the

board on Dec. 20, 2017,

to replace then-outgoing

Superintendent Omar Castillo.

White had one year

remaining on that contract.

White has spent the past

33 years in education, 17

of which were spent as superintendent

at D181, and

the last two as superintendent

of D159.

A special board meeting

was scheduled for 7 p.m.

Monday, Nov. 25, at which

board members began the

process of finding a replacement

for White with a

superintendent search firm.

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

Dozens of teachers turn

out to D228 meeting as

potential strike looms

Dozens of teachers

turned out at the Bremen

High School District 228

School Board meeting

Nov. 19 as the threat of a

strike draws nearer.

The D228 Joint Faculty

Association has been asking

for more pay, no cuts in

classes offered and smaller

classes, but so far — after

11 months of negotiation

— district officials have

balked at the demands.

As previously reported

by The Junction, the union

members have been working

without a contract since

July 31 and negotiating

with the BOE since December

2018. On Oct. 3,

the D228-JFA voted “overwhelmingly”

to authorize a

strike.

The union submitted its

final contractual offer to

the Illinois Educational

Labor Relations Board for

public posting, prompting

what could lead to a strike,

according to the release.

Amanda Godin, one of

the teachers in attendance

at the board meeting, spoke

for the assembled, and said

teachers should feel appreciated

by the district.

“The educators in this

district are a group of hard

working, devoted men and

women who deserve a

contract that shows every

member of the 228 community

that they are appreciated

by you, the board of

education,” Godin said.

FROM THE HOMER HORIZON

Ten Lockport Township

athletes honored at fall

signing day

Success in female athletics

always has been a big

part of Lockport Township

High School.

That showed when the

school held its fall signing

day earlier this month.

All 10 of the Porters who

announced they were taking

the step to sign at the

next level were from girls

teams.

In fact, five of them were

from the softball team,

which has had a lot of success

over the years with

a pair of state championships.

With the players who

signed their letters of intent

last week on the team this

past season, the Porters

produced 29 wins and another

regional championship

team.

“Our program is proud

of these young ladies, their

hard work and commitment

to the game, in and out of

the season,” Porters softball

coach Marissa Chovanec

said.

A trio of volleyball players

who helped the Porters

produce back-to-back regional

titles for the first

time in 13 years also signed

on the dotted line.

They are Taylor Morgan

(Southern Illinois University),

Becca Oldendorf

(University of Illinois at

Chicago) and Morgan Schmutzler

(Franklin Pierce

University).

Expecting to help the

Lockport basketball team

to great heights this season

is 6-foot-4 Jenna Cotter.

She will continue he playing

career at Indiana University

- Purdue University

Indianapolis.

Lindsey Merk, who has

been a longtime standout

on the girls swimming

team, should have a bright

future ahead of her swimming

at Georgia Tech.

FROM THE NEW LENOX PATRIOT

Realtor’s Good Neighbor

Award grant doubled

Dale Taylor nearly fell

to the floor when it was announced

that he, along with

the other Good Neighbor

Award recipients, would

have their $10,000 grants

doubled.

The surprise came at the

annual convention for the

National Association of

Realtors Nov. 8-11 in San

Francisco. It was done to

celebrate the 20th anniversary

of the Good Neighbor

Award.

Taylor was given the

award for his work with

the South Suburban Public

Action to Deliver Shelter

— a nonprofit organization

that assists with homeless

people in the Chicago

southland region. Taylor

works every Monday night

at his shelter in Homewood

that helps homeless

men.

“On stage, there was a

prompter that I could see,

and there was an audience

of about 6,000 colleagues,”

Taylor said. “I saw the

‘20,000’ come up on the

prompter just before they

announced it. When I saw it

on the prompter, I just bent

over, and Bruce Johnson

[another award recipient]

was standing next to me,

and I just grabbed him and

hugged him. I was in such

shock. It was a natural reaction

of surprise.”

Before the convention,

Taylor had not had a chance

to meet any of the other

winners but was floored as

he read about the work they

do in their respective communities,

he said.

Nov. 9 was the day he

met the other winners,

along with NBA Hall-of-

Famer Magic Johnson,

who also assists people in

need.

“To be present with those

caliber of people, it was so

fulfilling for me,” Taylor

said.

FROM THE FRANKFORT STATION

Frankfort Arts Association

opens downtown gallery

Margi Hafer has lived in

Frankfort for 43 years and

has created art for as long

as she remembers. She has

multiple fine arts degrees,

has taught students at all

levels and even tried her

hand at running a gallery in

Frankfort.

But she has never seen

an effort in her hometown

quite like the Frankfort

Arts Association, a burgeoning

organization that

formally opened its new

art gallery Nov. 17 in

downtown Frankfort. The

space — which will host

exhibits, classes and lectures

— represents a big

milestone for the group

and Frankfort’s artistic

scene, those involved

said.

“The FAA is the kind of

organization I’ve been hoping

for since I first moved

here,” said Hafer, a group

member. “They’ve done

amazing things in their first

years, and having a space

to call home should really

help them grow their presence

in our community.”

The association, now

with 75 members, started

roughly two years ago

and became a nonprofit in

2018, Board Member Katie

Stempniak said. A number

of local artists and art supporters

got together after

realizing they “really didn’t

have a lot of opportunities

for artists in our southwest

area,” she added.

The group drew inspiration

from galleries and studios

in Tinley Park, Chicago

Heights and Park Forest.

“We took a little bit of

all those, and made it our

own,” Stempniak said.

Poetry in OP

‘Puppy

Love’

Lin Peterson

Orland Park resident

My puppy, it seems,

Has us very welltrained

She insists on walks

Except when it rains

She’ll never eat dogfood

If chicken is around.

And never eat chicken

If treats can be found.

Couches she’ll abide

If laps can’t be slept in.

And sometimes her own

bed,

That her toys are kept

in.

She has her routines

Which she absolutely

insists on

Eat, sleep; eat, sleep

Then a walk by the

pond

Rides in the car

And visiting friends

Then back home to nap

As the day ends

One last trip outside

And wash up her feet

Then curl up in our bed

The sandman to meet

As long as we do

Whatever she’s bidding

We’re allowed to live

here

And pay for her living.

From the Editor

Great + Attitude =

BILL JONES

bill@opprairie.com

You can’t have

gratitude without

attitude.

OK, that might initially

sound clever verbally but

the notion falls apart in

print when you realize,

“Hey, ‘attitude’ has too

many Ts to fit inside of

‘gratitude.’”

You are correct.

It is also just a bogus

philosophy. A show of

appreciation tends to ring

truer when one humbles

oneself a bit and expresses

what difference those

things that warranted the

thanks made, on a personal

level.

I bring up this bad example,

though, to show how

things differ depending on

how you say something —

in this case, writing versus

speech.

Many of us are about to

be sitting around a table

with family somewhere,

and some might be prompted

to share what they’re

thankful for. Many a teen

will mumble. Some will

default to the meal before

them as a stock answer. An

aunt will likely remind everyone

that being together

is what’s most important.

Thursday, your Facebook

feeds will be inundated

with lengthy posts

Gratitude

reflecting on similar things.

Your Twitter feeds beset

by debates over the merit

of the holiday. Many will

just be gearing up for the

shopping extravaganza that

follows.

That it is all so predictable

is part of the problem

when it comes to this day

of giving thanks.

And it got me thinking

again about Bill Nicholson,

who I interviewed a few

weeks back for our cover

story about his World War

II history. It was mentioned

to me that Nicholson had

shown some appreciation

recently by writing thank

you notes, and no one does

that anymore. That small

show of effort left a real

impression on someone.

At some point, thank

you notes might have been

commonplace. But today,

we’re content to simply like

a comment, send a “TY”

or “thnx” by email, or offer

a verbal “thanks” without

even thinking about it.

Don’t get me wrong —

any show of thanks feels

better than nothing. And

I’m not advocating for

every “thank you” to be

submitted in writing.

But there is something

about a personal touch to

a thank you — something

that shows a bit of effort —

that makes that gratitude

stand out in a sea of autoresponses.

That means taking the

time to craft a handwritten

note, actually telling

your family what they

mean to you rather than

simply acknowledging that

you are sitting at a table

with them, or reminding

that retail worker that you

come to that shop because

of her great recommendations,

because she always

remembers your name and

she takes care to get your

orders right — and you

appreciate her for that.

And when you inevitably

take your thanks to

social media, maybe reach

out to the people who are

important to you rather

than simply directing all

attention to the wall of you,

the thankful. Think not

about how you’re a thankful

person but rather what

you want your gratitude

to make someone else fee.

Then, take the effort to

make it so.

‘The Deepest Mystery’

Susanne Cabrini Marie

Orland Park resident

How on earth is this

wondrous deed done--

Christ’s Body and

Blood making us one?

When of The Eucharist

we partake,

He dwells within us

for our sake.

Under the appearance

of bread and wine,

Jesus feeds us Himself—food

divine!

This Sacrament frees

us from venial sin,

And helps us be holy

like Jesus our kin.

May we all ponder this

deepest mystery—

The most precious gift

in all of history!

Cirque Italia sets sail again at Orland Square

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

7

Folks who stopped by

the white and blue big top

in the east parking lot of

Orland Square between

Nov. 14 and 17 were transported

to Italy through the

wonder of Cirque Italia.

Since 2012, Cirque Italia

has brought its animalfree

traveling water circus

to towns across the United

States, and this year’s Orland

Park stop found the

performance stage transformed

into a large ship.

Contortion, magic, archery,

aerial performances

and much more were highlighted

by the show, which

also featured a unique,

35,000-gallon water stage.

“The stage rises up for

certain acts, and it will

form a water curtain that

marries the sounds with

the music, light and the

performer,” explained

Sarah Kessler, public relations

and media representative

for Cirque Italia. “It

really adds an extra visual

that you won’t get in other

circus shows. There are

only two other stages like

it in the world. One is in

Dubai and the other is in

Las Vegas, but they’re not

mobile, so Cirque Italia

is the only one that has a

traveling water stage.”

Even before the 1:30

p.m. Sunday matinee began,

the Kinnane family,

of Hoffman Estates, were

already enjoying the carnival

atmosphere, which

included festival food staples

such as corn dogs and

funnel cakes, as well as

vendors selling a variety

of light-up toys. Ten-yearold

Kristin Kinnane’s first

stop was to the face-painting

booth, so she could get

into the Cirque Italia spirit.

performance outside of Orland Square. Photos by Laurie Fanelli/22nd Century Media

“I feel like if you do face

painting, it makes you feel

more excited and pretty,”

Kristin said.

Her 11-year-old brother,

Kevin, added he was excited

to witness the deathdefying

show in action.

“I like the stuff in the air,

because it looks cool and

it looks hard, so it’s more

impressive,” Kevin said.

Clown Rafinha opened

the show with a bit of humor,

and he and an opera

singer kept the audience

entertained in between airborne

performances.

“Each act has a tie to a

certain port in Italy, and

the performers have costumes

that go along with

that,” Kessler said. “There

are group dances, a clown

— who serves as a ringmaster

to tie all of the acts

together — and you’ll see

all kinds of other performances.”

While Italy was the setting

for the show, performers

hailed from a variety of

countries.

“We have performers

from all over the world —

from Mexico, Cuba, Bolivia,”

Kessler said. “It’s

very cultural and a different

experience to see. We

also have new performers,

eighth-generation circus

performers, as well as

those who ran away and

joined the circus.”

Kessler added that many

of the performers also help

to make the show a success

behind the scenes as

managers, members of the

tent crew, face-painters

and more.

Cirque Italia featured

aerial acts, an archery segment

and a juggler early on

in the show. During a brief

intermission, Amaris Talley,

9, of Chicago, shared

some of her favorite moments

from the first half

while she waited in line to

get her face painted purple.

“My favorite part was

when they were doing the

shots at the balloons and

when she was hanging

from a little Hula-Hoop,

because I really like action

things,” Talley said. “I like

action movies a lot.”

Following the run at Orland

Square, Cirque Italia

had dates slated for West

Dundee, Bridgeview and

Peoria. More information

about Cirque Italia can be

found at www.cirqueitalia.

Stepping up to the big show

St. Francis children join Lincoln-Way Area Chorale for ‘Silver sound of the Season’

Children from St. Francis of Assisi were among those who joined the Lincoln-Way Area Chorale on Nov. 17 for a

performance of “O Holy Night” during a holiday concert at Lincoln-Way East High School.

In

Loving Memory

Matthew Mantell

(1959-2019)

Matt Mantell passed away on September 28, 2019 following a

courageous yearlong battle with cancer. He was a professional violinist

and violist who worked in and around Chicago for about 40 years.

Matt was born in Chicago in 1959 but his parents moved to Orland Park

when he was just 1 year old. He first learned to play the violin at High

Point Elementary School in the late ‘60s, when they had just started an

orchestra program. He was immediately captivated and showed ability

right away. He took private violin lessons from that point on, and played in the Carl Sandburg HS orchestra as

well as with the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra downtown.

Although Matt continued to study the violin in college, he decided to major in viola and received a Bachelors

of Music degree in Viola Performance from the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago. During college

he started teaching private violin and viola students from his parents’ home in Orland Park in order to pay his

college tuition.

After college, Matt began a long and successful career as a performer and teacher. He held the position of

principal viola with Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra, Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra, Elgin Symphony

Orchestra, and Chicago Opera Theater; assistant principal viola with Chicago Sinfonietta, the Joffrey Ballet,

and Lake Forest Sym, and he substituted with Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Grant Park Sym, and Lyric Opera

of Chicago. Matt was also the long time viola faculty and program director of the symphony session at Birch

Creek Music Festival (Door County WI), a summer orchestra program for advanced high school students.

His reputation as a much sought-after violin and viola teacher grew, and many of his students went on to

become successful performers or music educators themselves.

Matt was an institution in the greater Chicago music community. Not only was he a fine musician, but he was

a warmhearted, funny, and welcoming presence at every gig. He got along with everyone, from conductors

to colleagues to his adoring students. Matt was the consummate mentor to decades of students. Somehow

he integrated into their lessons a mixture of discipline, zaniness, life lessons, and of course musical artistry.

He would proudly tape announcements of all his students’ achievements to his studio door until it was a messy

but cheerful collage over the years.

Matt was married to his wife Emily (a cellist) for 33 years. Their daughter Sonia is also a professional cellist.

Matt led a truly joyful life, doing what he loved.

His legacy will be remembered by the many lives he touched.

A memorial celebration of Matt’s life was held at the Mantell’s home

on October 25. Close to 300 friends - almost all musicians -

came and went before and after rehearsals and performances

to share their fondest memories of a beloved friend and musician.

The Dish

Relentless innovation drives Siam Marina but favorites persist

Bill Jones, Editor

As Siam Marina coowner

Tammy Pham

hustles behind the bar

alongside her husband and

co-owner, Sam Chung, on

a November evening during

a Fall Harvest cocktail

tasting, customers continually

swing by to address

her by name and thank her

for their meals.

“They all know me,”

Pham says with a laugh.

After five years in Tinley

Park — following 20-

plus in Calumet City with

Siam Marina I and II, and

since 2007 with Asparagus,

a second restaurant

the couple has run in Merrillville,

Indiana — Pham,

who serves as the restaurant’s

executive chef, is

about as familiar to Siam

Marina’s regulars as is the

Asian fusion restaurant’s

prominent building along

Oak Park Avenue. And

while the familiarity says

a lot about the loyalty the

restaurant has earned with

its diners in just half a decade

in town, it is the unfamiliar

that keeps many of

them coming back.

“My customers always

want the new,” Pham said.

That is why the duo hosts

events like the monthly

cocktail tastings and why

it invites fresh jazz acts

to entertain there twice a

month. It is also why Siam

Marina’s menu is starting

to look like a phone book

— albeit a phone book

with an innovative drinks

list, a seemingly endless

offering of appetizers, 10

salad options, nine soups,

and entrees that run the

gamut from curries to seafood,

red meat to poultry

to noodles and rice.

Then, Siam Marina

brings out a companion

novella full of dessert options.

It gets more interesting

yet when Chung, working

with an enormous display

of liquor, is behind the bar

— made from a 100-yearold

cherry tree. Ever the

innovator, Chung is more

than happy to inquire

about diners’ preferences

and whip up special drinks

on the spot.

But part of the reason

the menu itself has gotten

so big is that despite

the demand for “new,”

regulars have their longstanding

favorites, and it’s

tough to let go of a good

recipe.

And customers will find

several of the all-time

standouts on Pham’s menu

before ever getting past the

appetizers. The asparagus

crispy rolls ($10) feature

fresh asparagus and bacon,

dusted with Parmesan

cheese, wrapped in rice

spring rolls, and served

with a ginger and sweet/

sour dipping sauce.

The playfully named

Duo Cargot ($15) bakes

escargot and shrimp together

in little bowls, with

a Thai basil sauce. They

come served with small

slices of garlic bread,

which diners will want to

use to sop up the sauce,

which has a slight kick.

The spicy lemongrass

The spicy lemongrass beef at Tinley Park’s Siam Marina features lemongrass-marinated beef, sesame seeds,

herbs, onion, garlic and honey, served with hot sauce and cucumber, along with mixed greens.

beef — featuring lemongrass-marinated

beef, sesame

seeds, herbs, onion,

garlic and honey, served

along with mixed

greens — goes big on the

presentation, piling the

thin slices of beef high

atop the greens, with the

hot sauce rounding out the

design of a long platter.

On the portion of the

menu dedicated to noodle

and rice dishes, the pad ki

mao — or drunken noodles

— with chicken ($14)

have long been a customer

favorite. They feature

stir-fried flat rice noodles,

carrots, bean sprouts, pea

pods, basil, bamboo and

eggs, flavored with a touch

of exotic wine. They alternately

can be ordered with

tofu ($14), shrimp ($16) or

beef ($18).

flavors from around the

world but focuses on influences

from Thailand

and Vietnam — the latter

Pham’s first home — in

the French style. If the

ever-growing menu is any

indication, Pham’s riffs on

those flavors are virtually

limitless. And she has no

plans to slow down.

“It’s really fun,” she

said. “I think it’s in my

blood.”

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

In his first jaunt in the

an All-America honor.

Jacobs, who was redshirted

last year and did not

Fighting Irish men’s cross

country team with a 29thplace

finish in 31 minutes,

12.9 seconds on Saturday,

Nov. 23 at the LaVern Gibson

Championship Cross

Country Course in Terre

Haute, Indiana.

That helped lead the

Fighting Irish to an eighthplace

finish, its best finish

since 2005.

Notre Dame finished

with 269 points, 19 points

behind seventh-place

Michigan. Brigham Young

University won the NCAA

National Championship

It was the second week

GIRLS BASKETBALL

Eagles making impressions early in the season

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

If first impressions mean

anything, Sandburg’s girls

basketball team can shoot

from long range.

If second impressions

mean anything, the Eagles

are capable of shaking off

rough patches and making

comebacks.

Sandburg opened the

season nailing 11 3-point

baskets in a 69-42 home

victory over St. Laurence

on Nov. 18.

Sophomore Erin

O’Connor, who was on the

varsity last season, opened

the Eagles season hitting a

3-pointer to start the barrage.

She finished with

12 points. Senior Grace

Badon led the Eagles with

15 points and freshman

Josie Canellis came off the

bench to score 13 in her

debut.

The points did not come

as easy the next night in

the first round of the Hinsdale

South Tournament

as they mustered just 16

points in the first 16 minutes

against Plainfield

South and trailed 21-16,

but came out in the second

half and put the defensive

clamps on and got

the offense rolling in a

42-32 victory. O’Connor

had 14 points including

eight free throws down

the stretch.

Stop the Perezes!

St. Laurence came into

Sandburg’s gym with a

couple of young Orland

Park sisters who could

make a big impact on

coach George Shimko’s

Vikings program in the

coming years.

Sophomore Ashley

Perez and her freshman

sister, Anna, combined for

Sandburg’s Grace Badon (left), who led Sandburg in scoring with 15 points, defends

VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

six points in the setback to

Sandburg.

Anna started the game

and hit a 3-pointer for the

Vikings’ first points of the

season.

“We expect a lot of production

out of both girls,”

Shimko said. “They are

really good shooters and

Anna can also really get to

the basket.”

The two attended Cardinal

Joseph Bernardin

School.

Nat debuts for NCC

Natalie Stavroploulos

made her debut for

North Central College and

played her first competitive

basketball game since

suffering a season-ending

ACL injury in November

of her senior year at Sandburg

last season.

She came off the bench

to play four minutes on

Nov. 11 in an 80-75 loss

to Dubuque in Naperville.

She averaged a point a

minute as she scored four

points, including hitting

both of her free throws

Stavropoulos’s playing

time increased to 15

minutes the second time

around and she scored

seven points and grabbed

two rebounds in a 62-43

victory over Concordia-

Wisconsin.

She is leading the team

in free throw percentage

with .714 as she hit 5-of-

7 in her two appearances

in the Cardinals first four

games.

OP athletes helping

Cyclones

Former Sandburg player

Erin Greenfield was averaging

10.3 points per game

to help Moraine Valley

Community College get

out to a 5-3 start this season.

The sophomore was

third on the team in scoring

and was shooting at a

44 percent clip.

Another former Eagle,

Nicole Poole, was averaging

7.8 points per contest

for the Cyclones and the

sophomore was third on

the team with six 3-pointers

made.

The Cyclones’ 3-point

specialist has been freshman

Kirsten Kamholz,

who drained 17 and is

averaging a team-high

14.3 points per contest.

Kamholz is an Orland

Park native who

attended Andrew High

School.

Look out!

The Eagles are hosting

their first holiday tournament

from Dec. 26-28 and

one of the teams coming to

town is Joliet West, which

is young and dangerous

with three freshmen on the

squad who get plenty of

playing time.

The Tigers opened the

season at the Lincoln-Way

Central tournament with

a 62-34 victory over Oak

Forest and came back with

a 52-12 triumph over Andrew

in the second round

of pool play. Freshman

Lisa Thompson led West

with 16 points against the

T-Bolts and she is already

considered a Division I

to place them on one super team — Team 22. The team features student-athletes from Lincoln-

Way Central, LW East, LW West, Providence Catholic, Andrew, Lockport Township, Tinley Park and

Sandburg high schools.

—Compiled by 22nd Century Media staff

First team

OH: Izabela Gorys, senior,

Providence

317 kills, 245 digs. All-GCAC

Red, All-Tournament at

Rich East and Oak Lawn.

Six-rotation player was the

Celtics’ go-to player at the

net, helping them reach a

sectional final for the first

time since 2005. Headed

to Eckerd College for beach

volleyball.

OH: Brianna Haggerty,

senior, Andrew

279 kills, 161 digs, 35 aces.

All-SWSC Red. Dynamic

offensive weapon led the

Thunderbolts to their first

sectional championship

game appearance since

2003. Committed to North

Carolina-Wilmington for

indoor and beach volleyball.

OH: Jess Pappas, senior,

Lincoln-Way East

275 kills, 200 digs, 18

aces. All-SWSC Blue.

Already a top offensive

player, Pappas became

much more well-rounded

this season, playing all six

rotations consistently for

the first time and making

major contributions on

defense. Signed with

Wisconsin-Parkside.

OH: Shelby Stefanon, senior,

Sandburg

278 kills, 240 digs, 30 aces,

19 blocks. All-SWSC Blue.

One of the most well-rounded

players in the area, Stefanon

was as effective in the back

row as she was in the front.

She helped Sandburg win 34

games and its first sectional

title since 2004.

M: Leena Ajibola, senior,

Lockport

152 kills, 55.5 blocks, 46

digs. All-Tournament at

Plainfield North. No other

area player made as much of

an impact in the middle as

Ajibola. Lockport coach Nick

Mraz said her 55.5 blocks

“do not do justice to how

many good touches she had

and how often she disrupted

what the other side wanted

to do offensively.”

S: Ava Porada, junior,

Lincoln-Way East

612 assists, 179 digs, 26

kills, 19 aces. The only

junior to crack this tough

first-team list, Porada

was the top table-setter

in the area. In addition to

her assist totals, she was

strong defensively and a

tough server.

L: Rachel Krasowski, senior,

Sandburg

705 digs, 111 assists, 45

aces. All-SWSC Blue. Good

luck getting a ball down with

Krasowski in the back row.

The DePaul recruit, who led

the Eagles to the Elite Eight,

shattered her own singleseason

school digs record

of 541 from her junior

season. Her 2,136 career

digs are also a school

record.

Honorable mention

OH: Katie Barry, senior, LW Central; Katie

Little, senior, LW West; Gillian Peterson, junior,

Providence; Sidona Rao, sophomore, Sandburg;

Juliana Warfield, sophomore, Providence

RS: Emma Kein, senior, LW East.

Swimming

Giglio-Fasel tag-team ends with another state appearance

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

heading to the IHSA state meet, where it finished in 28th

place with a time of 1 minute, 42.37 seconds. PHOTO

SUBMITTED

When Sandburg sophomore

diver Maddie Giglio

and diving coach Leslie

Fasel had their first practice

together, well, let’s just say

they were both learning on

the job.

“[Sandburg swimming

coach] Anna [McBride]

asked me to coach diving,

and I said ‘absolutely not,’

because I’m a gymnast and

I was a gymnastics coach

all of my career and I didn’t

know anything about diving,”

Fasel said. “I never

dove.”

But she took the job and

had a willing-to-learn pupil

in Giglio.

“Maddie and I came in at

the same level,” Fasel said.

“We knew nothing about

diving.”

Nothing became something.

And something became

something else.

The final order of business

in the Giglio/Fasel

partnership just concluded

over the weekend. Giglio

did not have the finish she

was looking for as she

placed 42nd out of 48 divers

in the preliminaries of

the Illinois High School Association

State Swimming

and Diving Finals on Friday,

Nov. 22 at New Trier

High School in Winnetka.

Her prelim efforts netted

her 166.35 points and that

was not enough to make

it to the top-16 semifinals.

Still, it was her second trip

to the state finals and she

earned a scholarship to dive

at the University of Toledo.

“Maddie had a great

season, unfortunately she

Sandburg diving coach Leslie Fasel keeps a watchful eye on Maddie Giglio during

the Lockport Sectional on Nov. 16. Two years ago, the two were diving novices and

since then, Giglio became a two-time state qualifier in the sport. JEFF VORVA/22ND

CENTURY MEDIA

didn’t fare with the outcome

she hoped,” Fasel

said. “She has a great opportunity

to continue on

with the University of Toledo

and be the best diver

she can be.”

On the swimming side,

junior Jenna Falsey claimed

32nd out of 33 qualifiers in

the 500-yard freestyle with

a time of 5 minutes, 26.47

seconds.

The 200 free relay team

of Maureen Flannery, Erin

Barry, Julia Barry and Colleen

Donnell took 28th out

of 29 competitors with a

1:42.37. But the future of

those swimmers is bright

as Flannery and Julia Barry

are freshmen, Erin Barry is

a sophomore and Donnell

is a junior.

Heading into the state

competition, Giglio had

two great meets in a row.

She set a personal-best record

of 429.60 on Nov. 2

at the SouthWest Suburban

Conference meet and

two weeks later busted

that mark wide open with

a 446.20 at the Lockport

Sectional.

Last year, she finished

21st in the state, missing the

16-diver semifinals.

Now that the diving season

is over, she is heading

back to high school

gymnastics again with the

newly merged District 230

co-op team.

“It’s more for fun – to be

with the team again,” Giglio

said. ”

Fasel is looking forward

to the boys diving season.

“It’s going to be fun,”

she said. “We had a diver

[Cody Thill] who finished

eighth in the state and we

are hoping to improve on

that.”

OK, this is it for 16 football teams in Illinois and

six Press Box Pickers in the 22nd Century Media

Sandburg/Stagg merger improves district gymnastics

3

JEFF VORVA, Sports Editor

The first day of practice

for the newly formed District

230 co-op girls gymnastics

team was ready to

get started at Andrew High

School.

Andrew gymnasts were

already in the house on

Nov. 13. Sandburg’s girls

dropped in, followed by

Stagg’s athletes. The team

members were looking at,

and buzzing about, the

Andrew jackets and new

leotards, which have the

colors of all three schools.

Some stretching was in

order before serious practice

was to begin.

All seemed well.

Until the vault landing

mat that was transported

from Sandburg to Andrew

was missing in action. This

was an important piece of

equipment. A lot of equipment

made the trip from

the second floor in the gym

in Orland Park to the second-floor

gymnastics area

in Tinley Park.

Not all of the equipment

was usable. Some of it

went into a dumpster outside

of the school.

After a few minutes of

looking for the vault landing

mat, it was discovered

that it, too, accidentally

took an unceremonious

trip to the dumpster.

And that is how coach

Allison Hack’s first day of

practice with her extended

team started.

Once the mat was pulled

out of the dumpster, all

was well, and now that

the gymnastics program is

three-teams strong, she is

hoping all will stay well.

“I’m happy to work

with the student athletes

from Sandburg and Stagg

and create one D230 family,”

she said. “We now

Coach Allison Hack talks to some of her gymnasts during the first practice involving all three District 230 teams.

JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

feel like we can compete

with some of the top

teams in Illinois. We’re

looking forward to that. It

will be exciting.”

Last year, the T-Bolts

had just one state qualifier,

then-junior Bella Lapera.

With Sandburg-Stagg in

the fold, that brought in

another state qualifier in

Taylor Talley.

As a bonus — a really

big bonus — Sandburg’s

Maddie Giglio said she

would make her return

to gymnastics this week

after her diving season

ended at the Illinois High

School Association state

meet over the weekend.

Giglio is a well-decorated

athlete who finished third

in the state on the balance

beam her sophomore season.

She left gymnastics

her junior year to pursue

diving and was rewarded

with a scholarship offer to

the University of Toledo,

which she gladly accepted.

This team has some serious

firepower in those

three.

Freshman Natalie Drnec

from Sandburg is someone

to also watch.

“I knew her when she

was a baby,” Talley said.

“When she was young, I

said that this girl was going

to be good.”

Others on the roster who

are aiming to make an impact

are Andrew’s Claire

Scheulin, Sandburg’s Julia

Kobel, Abigail Vaughn-

Lee, Devin Dubsky and

Stagg’s Kamilia Harkabuz

and Jill Magafas.

Sandburg, which

morphed into the Sandburg-Stagg

co-op team,

had a good history under

27-year coach Mike White,

including a second-place

state finish in the state in

2009 and a third-place finish

in 1995 plus numerous

regional championships as

well as six sectional titles.

Eight Eagles have finished

in the Top 6 in the

state, and April Hunt won

a state title in the vault

event in 2003 and Krystyn

Misheck earned a state

championship in the floor

exercise nine years later.

White retired last year

and when Sandburg officials

assessed all aspects

of the program, the move

to Andrew made sense.

“It’s something we’ve

talked about since I’ve

been here — for four years

now,” Sandburg Athletic

Director Tom Freyer said.

“We felt this is a natural

time to do it. This would

be a great way to allow our

athletes to participate in

gymnastics. After looking

at our coaching staff and

facility constraints, we’ve

been practicing at Gym-

Kinetics for the past four

years.”

The athletes are mingling

well so far.

“We knew a lot of their

gymnasts from the last

couple of years, and they

were really nice,” Lapera

said. “Now, they are on

our team.

“It should be exciting,”

she said. “Everyone has

been practicing so hard

over the summer. There

is so much improvement

from my teammates, and

Sandburg and Stagg coming

in — we have a lot of

talent this year.”

Talley is also looking

forward to the season.

“I honestly don’t think

it’s that weird,” Talley

said. “A lot of us have

practiced together in club

gymnastics. I don’t see

a problem. We get new

people in every year with

freshmen. It’s an adjustment

with everyone coming

to a new place, but I

think we will get over that

pretty fast.”

The new team makes

its debut Wednesday, Dec.

4, at Andrew against the

Lincoln-Way co-op team.

gymnastics last season after enjoying two successful

seasons, will return to the sport on the District 230 coop

team. 22ND CENTURY MEDIA FILE PHOTO

Hack is looking forward

to Jan. 4, when the T-Bolts

take over hosting the fifth

Erin Olmsted Invitational,

which has been a staple at

Sandburg. Last year, the

meet drew 11 teams, and

Lincoln-Way won its third

title in four years.

Hack ordered new leotards

with colors from all

three schools on them.

“We wanted all of the

schools represented,” she

said. “This is going to be a

fun year.”

THURSDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK

South Side legend Hallberg will be missed

JEFF VORVA /

22ND CENTURY MEDIA

1st and 3

WITH THE MERGER

OF SANDBURG-

STAGG’S CO-OP

GIRLS GYMNASTICS

TEAM WITH ANDREW

(ABOVE), HERE ARE

STATE CHAMPIONS

FROM EACH SCHOOL

1. Sandburg’s champions

Sandburg had two

state champions in

gymnastics. April

Hurt won the vault

even in 2003 and

Krystyn Misheck

won the floor exercise

in 2009.

2. Andrew’s champ

Andrew had one

state champion in

gymnastics. Heidi

Helmke took first

in the vault event

in 1980. She also

claimed fifth in the

uneven parallel bars

event that season.

3. Stagg’s champ

Stagg also had

one state champion.

In 1986, Lisa

Peterson won both

the vault and allaround

events.

Jeff Vorva

Sports Editor

Food for thought as

Thanksgiving is

about to arrive.

At one time, I thought

Bob Hallberg was going

to coach St. Xavier University’s

women’s basketball

team and be the

school’s athletic director

forever.

Sure, I knew it wasn’t

going to be a reality. But

as one year turned into

another year, and the

Cougars were rising from

area power to national

elite in women’s hoops, I

was hoping that if anyone

could beat Father Time, it

would be Hallberg.

But reality set in when

he retired after last season

after he was diagnosed

with liver cancer and

reality really set in on

Nov. 19, when he died at

age 75.

Between his two jobs,

the Cougars have had

plenty of Orland Park

and Tinley Park athletes

attend the Chicago school

and play sports there.

He coached high school

and college basketball for

more than 50 years — all

at Chicago schools.

Hallberg never bragged

about wins, championships,

honors and Halls of

Fame, but he did brag to

me more than once about

coaching in Chicago his

entire career.

He touched, shaped and

molded many lives.

I got to know him the

last 15 or so years, and

while we did not have a

close relationship, he was

always great to me and I

was honored that he

had a photo of himself

that I took hanging in his

office.

He could be demanding

as a coach, and I imagine

as an AD, as well.

One time when he

was talking about an

office job opening in the

athletic department, he

said, “This is the type of

job where you can’t have

a flat tire. You can’t call

in sick.”

So, the guy I hoped was

going to coach forever is

gone.

A lot of people around

the south suburbs and

beyond are going to miss

this guy.

Reasons to be thankful

The last couple of

months have not been all

that swell, health-wise,

for your favorite columnist

and sports editor.

SXU coach and athletic director Bob Hallberg died last week and left a legacy in

Chicago and the south suburbs. ST. XAVIER UNIVERSITY

I had some stuff that

doctors said could have

killed me. But coach

Hallberg would be proud

that I did put out two

sports sections a week

while ill. I even wrote a

few stories in the hospital.

I am not completely out

of the woods yet, but I am

feeling a lot better and

am trying to keep

my sense of humor about

it. I’ve been telling

people I am living a Warren

Zevon song called

“My (bleep’s) (bleeped)

Up. Check out his “Life’ll

Kill Ya” album for the

exact title.

There are many people

to thank, but three in

particular are in the forefront.

First, my wife Maggie,

who stayed with me

at the hospital morning,

noon and night. She got

to listen to me make

jokes, complain and

swear. She is also a nurse

and, when we got home,

she was able to hear me

make jokes, complain and

swear some more while

she was getting my sorry

carcass back into shape.

She was not my guardian

angel, because that would

mean she is dead. But she

was a guard and an angel,

and I can’t thank her

enough.

Second, my boss, Bill

Jones, has been understanding

throughout

this whole ordeal. And

the night when those

doctors said I could have

died, he had driven me

home, despite the fact

that I insisted I was fine.

Third, Lincoln-Way

area Sports Editor Steve

Millar went out of his

way to get some quotes

and photos for me while

he was on his assignments.

The guy was

already busy enough and

going that extra mile

for me was appreciated

greatly. I owe him bigtime.

So even though life’s

been a little rough, there

are so many reasons to be

thankful.

LISTEN UP

top teams in Illinois.”
