Lake Forest City Council

Posted to LakeForestLeaderDaily.com 8 days ago

Late former mayor, others honored by aldermen

Stephanie Carlson

Freelance Reporter

The Lake Forest City

council honored the life

and work of former Mayor

Charles F. Clarke Jr. at its

regular meeting Tuesday,

Jan. 21.

Clarke passed away Jan.

1 at the age of 90 of natural

causes. He served as

the Mayor of Lake Forest

from 1990-1993, following

in his father’s footsteps,

who served from

1943-1946.

The council proposed

a resolution of sympathy

to honor the former

mayor and to give their

condolences to his family.

Clarke’s wife, Ellie

Clarke, approached the

board to speak of her husband’s

legacy and to thank

the community for the

many letters sent to her in

adoration of her husband.

“It has been so gratifying,

since he’s died, to receive

letters about him,”

said Ellie Clarke. “I would

like to share that they were

all about his kindness, his

genuine feelings about

people, his humility, and

I think that sort of shows

his entire life. He wanted

to serve and to give back.

That was his best wishes.”

The board was able to

celebrate many events at

this meeting including

the Chicago Bears 100th

season, the 100-year anniversary

of the League

of Women Voters, and the

city of Lake Forest being

awarded the Distinguished

Budget Presentation

Award for the fourth consecutive

year.

The Chicago Bears, after

36 years, will be bringing

their training camp back to

the Halas Hall Complex.

The complex was updated

back in August of 2019,

adding two additional football

fields and doubling its

square footage. Halas Hall

also serves as the team’s

headquarters.

“This is a wonderful way

to help us in our celebration

of 100 years,” Brian

McCaskey, vice president

of the Chicago Bears, said.

“… Since 1975 it has been

a tremendous partnership

with the community, with

the city of Lake Forest, and

with its residents. We sincerely

appreciate that relationship.”

The board was also happy

to congratulate the 100th

anniversary of the League

of Women Voters. The

Lake Forest-Lake Bluff

divisions were merged in

1989 to help serve the community

by encouraging and

educating women voters.

The national league was

started in 1920, the same

year that the women’s suffrage

movement became

incorporated into the United

States Constitution, to

inform and educate new

women voters on their voting

rights and responsibilities.

“Today, the League of

Women Voters often provides

women’s leadership

Pandaleon said the committee

to the environment, conservation

and sustainability,”

which will “keep this

topic at the forefront of our

conversations.

“My intent is that the

Freelance Reporter

The Lake Bluff Public

Library had the opportunity

to host some very special

furry friends from the Flying

Fox Conservation Fund

on Saturday, Jan. 25.

Started back in 1996,

the conservation fund is a

not for profit organization

dedicated to protecting fruit

bats and their habitats. The

organization works to educate

the public on several

different animal species.

Founder and Director

Scott Heinrichs and volunteer

Christine Gomoll

brought eight different

animals with them to the library

to present their Mammals

and More! program.

The program aims to

teach and educate children

about these animals from

around the world, and how

important it is to help protect

them. The organization

visits libraries and other

events around the world.

“It is important not only

to talk about the animals

but to bring the animals to

everyone so that they can

see them, pet them, and

experience them,” Gomoll

said. “It is important that

people make a connection

with them.”

Children and their families

were able to learn

about and experience animals

that they would not

normally have the chance

to interact, with many of

the animals primarily living

in places like Africa,

Asia and South America.

Steve the sloth is the

fund’s most popular animal,

and he alone has

helped raise more than

$40,000 for the organization.

The children were

Scott Heinrichs, founder and director of the Flying Fox

Conservation Fund, introduces Eugene the Aracari to an

audience of children and adults at the Lake Bluff Library

on Saturday, Jan. 25. Alex Newman/22nd Century Media

also able to pet animals like

Shelby the armadillo and

Sammy the flying fox.

Gomoll educated the

audience on each species

while Heinrichs walked

the animals around so that

the children could have an

interactive experience with

each of them. The children

were even allowed to pet

some of the animals.

Others, like Eugene the

Aracari – a species of toucan

– that did not like to

be pet, helped the children

understand the importance

animal boundaries.

“It was all really fun,”

Blake Spezzano, 9, said. “I

liked how every time that

they showed us an animal,

they told us a lot about

them too. Steve the sloth

was my favorite animal.”

Not only was this a great

opportunity for children

and their families, but an

opportunity for the Lake

Bluff Library to cater new

experiences for the public.

With a rise in animal

interest, the library staff

decided to bring in the organization

for their library

program for the first time.

“We knew that there was

a draw with animals,” Head

of Youth Services Eliza

Jarvi said. “We were specifically

hoping for a sloth,

and Flying Fox puts on

programs like this in other

areas, so we decided to

bring them here… There’s

always that animal interest

and we are always trying

to think of new programs

that the community will respond

to.”

The library was very excited

about the community

response to this program

and hope to host more

programs like this in the

future.

Morrison, Morgan preview 2020 plans at Northbrook town hall

Neil Milbert

Freelance Reporter

Five of the North Shore’s

representatives in the Illinois

General Assembly discussed

their priorities for

the upcoming legislative

session and answered constituents’

questions during

a town hall meeting Tuesday,

Jan. 21, at the Northbrook

Public Library.

State Sen. Julie Morrison

(D-Deerfield) and

State Rep. Bob Morgan

(D-Highwood) were joined

by State Sen. Laura Fine

(D-Glenview) and State

Reps. Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz

(D-Glenview) and

Jonathan Carroll (D-Northbrook).

At the start of the meeting,

Northbrook Library Director

Kate Hall introduced

the two senators and three

representatives before each

spoke for three minutes.

Morgan, who is beginning

his second year as

a member of the Illinois

House of Representatives,

spoke first, highlighting his

plans for the legislative session

that started Tuesday,

Jan. 28.

“Of the things I’m looking

to do in the spring,

the first is a policy issue:

combatting the increase in

anti-Semitism in our communities,”

Morgan said.

“We have seen an increase

in anti-Semitism in our

schools and at the University

of Illinois. We have

seen hate crimes across the

country. It strikes all of us

at the core.”

Morgan also emphasized

that legislators “need to

look at the way we spend

tax dollars” by ending “corporate

tax giveaways” and

said a clean-energy jobs act

is essential.

Morrison has served in

the state’s upper chamber

since 2013. She chaired

the Human Services Committee

in 2019 and was a

member of the Green Caucus.

“Last year, we passed

some amazing Human Services

legislation, things that

the governor prioritized,”

she said. “One of the things

was making policy changes

(to alleviate the) lack of resources

for people with disabilities.

People are shortchanged

so often for lack

of resources.”

During the question-andanswer

session, there were

five major issues that members

of the audience asked

their legislators to address:

the environment, property

tax relief, the November

referendum on replacing

the current flat tax with a

tax increase on the upper 1

percent, reforming pension

plans for teachers and state

workers, and meeting the

needs of children with autism

and special needs.

“The environment is an

issue that we cannot focus

on enough,” Carroll said.

“Look all around us. Look

at the shorelines. We are seeing

things happen (as a consequence

of global warming

Decisions for Minors during a town hall meeting at

and climate change).”

Morrison is committed

to ensuring job opportunities

for those who lose

their jobs in the transition

to clean energy, such as

those in working in the fossil

fuel industry in southern

Illinois.

The Lake Forest College

community hosted civil

rights activist Shaun King

on the evening of Monday,

Jan. 20, as a kickoff to its

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

celebration week activities.

Shaun King, who is not

related to Dr. King, is a

writer and co-founder of

the Real Justice PAC, as

well as a renowned activist

in the Black Lives Matter

movement. He is known

for using social media platforms

to reach out to the

community and promote

social movements.

Speaking for the first

time in Lake Forest, King

said he was able to attend a

class and speak with many

faculty, staff, and students

of color about what is

working and what isn’t at

Lake Forest College.

“I am honored to be in a

space that he shared,” King

said on Dr. King’s visit to

the college in the 1960s. “It

gives me a glimpse. There

are thousands of colleges

across the country that

Lake Forest at some point

in time thought that it was

a good idea to invite Dr.

King. It gives us a glimpse

into what was going on, not

just in the country, but in

Chicago.”

Prior to becoming known

for his social media posts,

Shaun King worked for

a company called Global

Green. He described how

seeing a video at work

changed his path in life

entirely. After a coworker

showed him the video

of the death of Eric Garner,

a black man who was

killed after being put into

a chokehold by New York

City Police officers during

an arrest attempt, King left

his job and began to flourish

as a well-known civil

rights activist.

“I made a social media

post with a picture of the

video showing the death

of Eric Garner,” King said.

“In the caption, I asked others

to help me understand

what was happening because

I just didn’t understand

it. Others wanted to

know the same thing and

soon the post went viral.”

King was highly influenced

by not only the Garner

case, but other cases

such as Michael Brown,

John Crawford, Tamir Rice

and many other African

American deaths by police.

“We got no justice. Not

a single one of those innocent

lives lost would get

justice,” said King.

One of King’s main discussions

of the evening

was that of historian Leopold

Von Ranke, who was

known for creating the

most detailed timeline of

the history of the world

back until the 1500s. Being

a historian himself - having

both an undergraduate and

graduate degree in history -

King became fascinated by

his work.

“Ranke had this idea that

if he put together a timeline

of all of the world’s

history, that he would see

the progression of human

beings getting better and

smarter as time went on,”

King said. “He soon came

to realize that this was not

the truth.”

He explained that while

technology continuously

got better, humans would

often show what he called

“major dips” in humanity

throughout time. He

showed many images of

events such as the Rwandan

genocide, the devastation

of the Holocaust, and

images of slavery.

In response to these images,

King asked, “If we

are supposedly getting better

and better, how do we

explain this?

“...We live in a deeply

problematic time in history…

We are currently in

a dip in humanity.”

Addressing the students

in the room, King let them

know that the change that it

will take to climb out of the

dip will be up to them.

“I’m not saying that we

need a war, but I am saying

that we will need a war like

effort,” he said. “…How

are we using the privilege

that we have to help those

without?”

THE GLENCOE ANCHOR

Glencoe native ‘BigRob’

allegedly stole $10M from

investor for high-roller

lifestyle

Glencoe native Robert

Gorodetsky, 27, is charged

with devising a scheme

to defraud an individual

out of millions of dollars,

according to a case filed

Jan. 21 in the U.S. District

Court in Chicago.

According to the federal

complaint Gorodetsky, a

New Trier High School

graduate, stole approximately

$9.6 million from

the victim, who is anonymous

in the document,

between February of 2014

and April 2018 “through

materially false statements

about, among other things,

the intended use of the

money invested, the actual

returns on the money

[the victim] invested with

Gorodetsky, and [the victim’s]

account balance.”

A representative of

Gorodetsky’s attorney,

Chris C. Gair, said Gair

had no comment on the

case.

In the past decade,

Gorodetsky has formed a

reputation in the sportsbetting

community.

In the bio of Gorodetsky’s

Twitter page,

where his handle is @RealBigRobStyle,

it states, “I

Bet $27 Million in Sports

Bets in 2017,” and from

the handle, Gorodetsky

frequently tweeted about

immense bets he would

place on sporting events,

such as regular season

MLB games and NBA

games, and encourage others

to message him for tips

on betting.

Also within his Twitter

bio, Gorodetsky provides

a link to a USA Today

profile about him that asks

readers, “Is this the future

face of sports gambling?”

and features a photo of

Gorodetsky sporting his

signature hat that reads

“GAMBLR.” across the

front.

In the newspaper profile,

Gorodetsky explains

why he posts his winning

gambling tickets, “If you

have a hot wife, you’re going

to show her off, right?

If she’s ugly, she’s staying

at home. You know what

I’m saying?’’

DPMS celebrates Chinese New Year with sister school

Peter Kaspari, Editor

The students at Deer

Path Middle School came

together with students

from their Chinese sister

school, Wenling No. 3

Middle School, to celebrate

the Lunar New Year.

Students from Wenling

spent their week at

Deer Path Middle School,

which included the Jan.

21 Lunar New Year celebration.

Dr. Jeff McHugh, District

67’s director of teaching

and learning, said this

was the first time students

from Wenling had come

to Deer Path to help celebrate

the Chinese New

Year.

“It’s just a way to just

get to learn more about

the Chinese culture,” he

said. “It’s more of a culture

celebration.”

He gave credit to

Mandarin teacher Grace

Zhang and assistant principal

Megan Eigenrauch

for helping to arrange the

visit from Wenling.

Deer Path’s celebration

included a performance of

“Mo Li Hua,” a traditional

Chinese folk song, which

was performed by students

from both schools.

There were also stations

set up where students

could learn about China

and its culture, including

calligraphy, origami, learn

how to use chopsticks and

even a game to see who

knew the most about China.

“This isn’t just for kids

who take Mandarin,”

McHugh said. “This is

for any Deer Path student

who would like to come.”

The celebration was

also open to the public.

mentary School and Deer

Path Middle School.

In addition to the performance,

McHugh said

the Wenling students also

got to go on a field trip

to Chicago to learn more

about the city, as well as

shadowing Deer Path students

to learn more about

how American schools

work.

In all, there were 15 students

from Wenling and

three chaperones.

Although there was a bit

of a language barrier, with

the Wenling students not

necessarily understanding

their American counterparts

and vice-versa,

McHugh said both groups

were able to communicate

with each other in various

ways.

He observed one example

in a math class, where

students were learning

about area and perimeter.

McHugh said the Wenling

students didn’t understand

what those terms meant,

but a Deer Path student

explained to them that

the area is the middle of

the shape and perimeter is

outside.

“They were able to

solve the problem,”

McHugh said. “That was

neat to see.”

Zhang said she was also

happy to see the students

interacting with each other.

District-wide, there are

about 120 students who

are enrolled in Mandarin

classes.

“Our school district and

the schools are really supportive

of us,” she said,

adding that the partnership

allows the sister school

to come to America and

allow the students to experience

what American

middle school life is like.

Zhang said there’s also

plans to have Deer Path

students visit China as

well.

“We have a China trip

coming up, so we’re going

to visit our sister school,”

she said. “Our kids will

stay with their host family

and explore the Chinese

school life.”

FROM THE EDITOR

Have a story idea? Send it in!

Peter Kaspari

peter@lakeforestleader.com

One thing I really

enjoy about Lake

Forest and Lake

Bluff is that there’s always

something to do. Very

rarely am I struggling for

stories to feature in The

Leader week after week.

Whether it’s an activity,

an anniversary of a local

business, a meeting or

something school-related,

these two towns certainly

keep me busy!

But despite that, I’m

still always looking for

stories to feature, and a

lot of times, some of my

biggest stories don’t come

from reading a calendar

of events, but from people

like you.

Some of my favorite

stories I’ve written have

been because somebody

reached out to me and

told me something that

was happening. These are

stories you won’t find in

a community calendar;

they’re ones you’d only

know if you were “in the

know,” so to speak.

My personal favorite

stories to write are people

profiles. I love meeting up

with someone, spending

time with them, and learning

more about who they

are and what they do. I enjoy

sitting back and letting

them tell me their stories;

why do they do what they

do? What inspired them?

I want to hear from you,

residents of Lake Forest

and Lake Bluff! Do you

have a story you think is

interesting? Do you know

of someone who just

completed a major accomplishment?

Have you a

relative that won an award

for doing something? Let

me know!

Please know, however,

that I cannot promise a

story on every single idea

that comes my way. But

please don’t let that discourage

you from sending

an idea my way!

I look forward to hearing

from all of you on

your ideas!

Churchgoers unite to honor Martin Luther King Jr.

Bill McLean

Freelance Reporter

The Rev. Jihan Murray-

Smith, an Episcopal deacon

at The Church of the

Holy Spirit in Lake Forest,

stood before a gathering of

about 40 people at Market

Square on Martin Luther

King Jr. Day.

She was there to lead an

Ecumenical Celebration of

the late civil rights icon.

It was sunny on the afternoon

of Jan. 20 in the

heart of Lake Forest.

And cold.

But Murray-Smith

spread warmth with her

words near the end of the

event’s first prayer/music

segment, saying, “We’re

blessed to have sanctuaries

inside such beautiful

churches all over the

world. But there are other

places to worship, to observe,

to recognize great

people, and those places

can be outside in a setting

like this.”

Murray-Smith, who

answered the call to The

Church of the Holy Spirit

seven months ago, then

hoisted a crucifix near

Western Avenue and began

marching toward her

church on Westminster

Avenue, while singing the

joyful Gospel song “This

Little Light of Mine.”

Her euphonious voice

filled the air, as the dozens

of attendees turned to follow

her and warble with

her.

But not before a bundled-up

Roberta Miller, a

First Presbyterian Church

parishioner and a Coldwell

Banker residential

brokerage real estate

agent serving Lake Forest

and the surrounding areas,

reflected — and looked

ahead.

The Rev. Kristie Finley, with First Presbyterian Church

of Lake Forest, speaks during the service.

“Martin Luther King did

a lot of wonderful things,”

Miller said. “We need to

remember what he did for

our nation. He was committed

to service to others,

and we can continue

to honor him by devoting

our time to community

service.”

“Let it shine, let it shine,

let it shine!” the Murray-

Smith-led traveling chorus

belted exuberantly a few

feet from Forest Bootery’s

entrance, bringing smiles

to passersby.

The celebration — clergy

and parishioners from

The Church of the Holy

Spirit, First Presbyterian

Church in Lake Forest and

The Community Church of

Lake Forest & Lake Bluff

were present — continued

in a spacious room at The

Church of the Holy Spirit,

where round tables supported

bowls of popcorn

and tangerines.

The Rev. Clinton Roberts,

senior pastor at First

Presbyterian, delivered the

opening prayer indoors.

“Look around us,” he

started. “Look forward to

tomorrow. Seek to carry

on the dream that The

Rev. Martin Luther King

Jr. so eloquently described

more than half of a century

ago. We pray that in our

time that this world will

be more like that dream.”

The Rev. Chip Hardwick,

also a pastor at First

Presbyterian, introduced

four short videos, including

a part of Dr. King’s

moving “I’ve Been to

the Mountaintop” speech

and five minutes of footage

about the Christian

minister and activist who

preached nonviolence to

bring change and was assassinated

in 1968 at the

age of 39.

“I have decided to stick

with love,” Dr. King once

said. “Hate is too great a

burden to bear. … Love

is the only force capable

of transforming an enemy

into a friend.”

Table sitters in the

room — ranging in age

from about 8 to maybe

78 — contemplated and

discussed topics after each

video, from, “When was

the first time you were

made aware of racism?”

to, “In today’s American

culture, we often hear

‘white privilege;’ what do

The Rev. Jihan Murray-Smith speaks with a child during the Ecumenical service at

Marchers leave Market Square and head toward The Church of the Holy Spirit.

those words mean to you?”

Hardwick periodically

asked the visitors to share

something significant that

they had heard at their

table with the rest of the

audience members.

A man stood and said,

“[Dr. King] could have

been mad and angry about

the injustice all around

him, but he chose love to

address it and challenge

it.”

The two-hour-plus celebration

concluded with

a service in The Church

of the Holy Spirit nave.

During the Call to Worship,

after the congregants

had stated, “We give you

thanks, O God,” Murray-

Smith said, “Especially

this day we thank you for

the Rev. Martin Luther

King Jr., for his courage

and conviction, for his

passion for peace, and for

his tireless quest of a nation

that keeps faith with

its promises.”

The Rev. Zachary Hancock,

of The Community

Church of Lake Forest &

Lake Bluff, gave the homily.

His fitting message

was, “Whose Shoulders

Are We Standing Upon

Today?”

LakeForestLeaderDaily.com

Posted to LakeForestLeaderDaily.com 1 day ago

Great Coast Commons brings out the neighborhood in Kenilworth

Eric DeGrechie

Managing Editor

Chick Evans admits he’s

a Great Lakes kind of guy.

Born and raised near

Lake Erie in Buffalo, New

York, the owner of Kenilworth’s

new restaurant,

Great Coast Commons,

feels right at home on the

North Shore with Lake

Michigan.

“Kenilworth chose us.

I had been looking at different

restaurant locations

in North Chicagoland and

the suburbs. I had got close

on a few different deals in

different places, but I’ve

always kept my eye on Kenilworth,”

Evans said. “ I

had always wondered why

Kenilworth didn’t have a

restaurant.”

Evans said he had approached

the village about

five or six years ago, but

was concerned liquor licenses

were not allowed

in Kenilworth. When the

village board changed that

by adopting a liquor ordinance

in 2017, Evans was

again interested.

Great Coast Commons,

which officially opened

Jan. 18, is the village’s

first-ever full service restaurant

with a liquor license.

Evans said the local

community has been very

supportive of the new spot

at 414 Green Bay Road.

“Our goal is just to be a

great neighborhood restaurant.

There will be people

coming in from other neighborhoods.

We’ve already

seen a lot of customers

from Wilmette, Evanston

and Winnetka,” Evans said.

“[With that], we’ve got a lot

of our business from people

on foot, walking from their

homes in the village here.

They’re stoked. They come

in and thank me.”

Evans has been in the

restaurant and hospitality

business for many years.

In 1999, he founded the

popular Maxie’s Supper

Club and Oyster Bar in

Ithaca, New York. In 2007,

he opened a Maxie’s location

in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

He’s also worked

at restaurants in Santa Fe,

New Mexico, and Boulder,

Colorado, among other

stops in his career.

It would be a chance

meeting at a meditation

class with his future wife,

Lauryn, that would eventually

bring him to Kenilworth

with the latter being

a native of Northfield

and graduate of New Trier

High School. Their daughter,

Swarupa, is currently a

student at New Trier.

Evans recently purchased

a home in Kenilworth

and will officially

move in once renovations

are completed.

“I will be able to walk to

work shortly,” Evans said.

“I’m excited about that.”

With Great Coast Commons,

Evans, along with

chef Victor Hernandez,

have put a focus on quality

and locally-sourced ingredients

both on the food and

liquor menus. Utilizing

environmentally-sound

practices is also important

as the food and drink selections

are filled with sustainable

farming and certified

organic choices.

“Options can be healthful

if you choose, certainly

wholesome,” Evans said.

“Healthful has different

meanings to different people

but we’re really being

conscious of where we’re

sourcing our ingredients

and how the ingredients

are coming to the market.

We’re looking at their impact

on the planet and on

our health.”

The Southern fried

chicken sandwich ($15)

is served on a cheddar

biscuit, coleslaw, spicy

mayo, homemade pickles

and hand-cut fries.

Great Coast Commons

414 Green Bay Road,

Kenilworth

(847) 728-0101

3:30-9 p.m. Sunday-

Thursday

3:30-10 p.m. Friday-

Saturday

The food menu at Great

Coast Commons features

small plates, large plates,

steaks and sharable sides.

Our group of 22nd Century

Media editors were excited

to sample some of it.

First up, we tried savory

monkey bread ($6).

Served with dill garlic butter

and Maldon salt, the

bread is a perfect starter.

According to Hernandez,

each individual dough ball

is dipped in the butter right

before it goes into the dish.

He said the bread soaks the

butter as it’s proofing and

then it’s baked with the

salt, which gives each bite

a little extra crunch.

Another popular starter

is the vegan chorizo tacos

($3.50 each). The tacos are

served in hand-made blue

corn tortillas, along with

guacamole and toasted

pumpkin seed.

“Basically, I wanted

to recreate the taste of

chorizo, but keep it vegetarian.

It’s actually made

with garbanzo beans and

cooked in sunflower oil,”

Hernandez said. “It’s then

mixed with all the ingredients

of chorizo.”

The starter menu also

includes salad choices,

avocado toast, raw seafood

selections and daily charcuterie

and artisan cheese.

From the large plate

section, we sampled a

14-ounce rib-eye steak

($42). Each steak at Great

Coast can be ordered with

a choice of sauce: borderlaise,

au poivre or bearnaise.

The sauces are made

in-house and involve a

three-day process according

to Hernandez. The

meat also comes with a

choice of hand-cut fries,

crispy garlic potatoes or

mashed potatoes.

We tried a Southernfried

chicken sandwich

($15). Evans, who also

owns a home in Asheville,

North Carolina, has

an affinity for Southern

cuisine as evidenced by

the menu at Maxie’s Supper

Club. The sandwich at

Great Coast is served on a

homemade buttermilk and

chive cheddar biscuit with

coleslaw, spicy mayo and

homemade pickles. The

chicken is breaded with

gluten-free flour.

Finally, we sampled the

Faroe Island salmon ($27),

served with a lentil and

root vegetable cassoulet

(French stew), squash and

hazelnut butter. Evans said

that the seafood options at

Great Coast will continue

to evolve as will the rest of

the menu.

“I’m jazzed by food.

Commons is served with a choice of borderlaise

Yarnall/22nd Century Media

The Faroe Island salmon ($27) features a lentil and root

vegetable cassoulet, squash and hazelnut butter.

The vegan chorizo tacos ($3.50 each) features handmade

blue corn tortillas, guacamole and toasted

pumpkin seed.

Having great food is entry-level

baseline for being

a restaurant. Having

great service is baseline

as well,” Evans said. “For

me, what I thrive on and

what I push for is a culture

of hospitality, a culture of

inclusion and a culture of

developing relationships

with people. That’s what

we’re trying to do here.”

Great Coast Commons

also offers a full wine

menu to accompany beer

and liquor selections.

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Lilly Trkla

Trkla is a junior on the

Lake Forest girls basketball

team.

How did you get

started playing

basketball?

I started when I was super

little playing NVA in

preschool. I just always

loved playing, I played

with my friends and I think

that’s what made me stick

with it.

What is your favorite

part of basketball?

Probably the competition

aspect. I love to compete

with people and try to

win, I think that’s the most

fun.

What’s the most

challenging part of

basketball?

Going along with being

competitive, staying positive

during tough games

can be hard. It’s something

to definitely keep working

towards.

What’s the best

coaching advice you’ve

ever gotten?

As someone that tends

to dwell in the past... focus

on the next play, don’t

worry about what just happened.

Do you have any

pre-game rituals or

superstitions?

It’s more of a team

thing, in the locker room

we always listen to certain

songs to get us ready for

games. We think they’re

good luck.

If you could play any

other sport, what

would it be?

I would probably play

soccer just because I never

played it before, I always

thought it looked super

cool.

What’s your favorite

place to eat?

Tony’s Subs in Deerfield.

My best friend and

I have always loved to go

together.

Who is your favorite

athlete?

Giannis Antetokounmpo

on the Milwaukee Bucks.

22nd Century Media File Photo

I love the energy that he

brings on the court.

If you won the lottery,

what’s the first thing

you would buy?

I’d probably save most

of it, but I’d most likely

buy something for my parents.

They’ve done a lot

for me, I should give back

to them.

If you could travel

anywhere in the

world, where would

you go?

I would go to Austria.

There’s this super cool

river where in the summer

it fills with ice from the

mountains, you can scuba

dive there.

Athlete of the Year 2019

Leader readers to vote for Athlete of the Year

Online contest runs

until Feb. 7

Michael Wojtychiw

Contributing Sports Editor

Despite the fact the calendar

year has now turned

to 2020, 2019 still has a

little bit missing from it.

On fields of play all over

the North Shore last year,

student-athletes soared to

new heights, and in many

cases, took their team

along for the ride. 22nd

Century Media was following

the action with its

seven North Shore publications

and websites, documenting

the moments of

glory as well as the agony

of defeat.

Along the way, every

week, papers like our Lake

Forest Leader selected

and interviewed a worthy

Athlete of the Week. At

the end of the month, all

Athletes of the Week from

the seven newspapers were

pitted against one another

in the popular Athlete of

the Month competition, for

which residents decide the

result by voting for their

favorite athlete online.

At year’s end, there are

12 winners, and we’re not

done just yet. Those 12

winners — along with six

The Athlete of the Year

competition is a two-week

online voting contest that

began at noon Sunday, Jan.

26, at LakeForestLeader-

Daily.com, as well as the

company’s six other North

Shore websites.

Fans can vote daily for

their favorite student-athlete

until 5 p.m. on Feb. 7.

To avoid voting spam and

abuse, we have restricted

the votes to one per IP address

per day with a special

feature to ensure votes are

being made by humans. If

votes are proven illegitimate,

they will be discarded

and the beneficiary of

the fraudulent votes may

be disqualified.

A winner will be announced

in the Thursday,

eSports grows in popularity at Lake Forest High School

Nick Frazier, Sports Editor

Brian Boruszak, a

social studies teacher

at Lake Forest High

School, has been playing

video games for a long

time.

So when some LFHS

students approached

Boruszak last year about

sponsoring a League of

Legends eSports team,

Boruszak was thrilled.

The group of seniors

needed a sponsor to compete

in the Illinois High

School eSports Association.

“They tried to do it

without a teacher keeping

them organized, it just

fell through the cracks,”

Boruszak said. “They

found out that I actually

play the game myself, so

they approached me. I

was thrilled for the opportunity

to tell my wife that

my video game playing

was for more than just my

own entertainment. “

After competing as a

pilot club last year, the

Lake Forest eSports team

is now an official activity,

and Boruszak is officially

the team’s head coach.

About 15 kids participated

last season by playing

League of Legends,

a wildly popular multiplayer

online battle video

game.

In its first season, the

eSports team finished

third in the League of

Legends, or LOL, state

tournament. With more

students participating this

year, Boruszak and his

team have their sights set

on a state title.

Right now, the students

are preparing for

the 2020 LOL season

as well as Overwatch, a

team-based multiplayer

first-person video game.

In both leagues, there is

an eight-week regular season

before the final eight

teams compete in the state

playoffs. Last season, the

LOL state tournament

took place at Robert Morris

University-Illinois.

“Robert Morris is one

of the top teams in the

country for collegiate, so

that was a really cool opportunity

for our kids to

see a college program,”

Boruszak said. “They

built a stadium there, it’s a

really cool environment.”

For the 2019 season,

Lake Forest had about

12 kids come in regularly

to hone their skills. This

season, the Scouts have

over 20 kids competing

in the two leagues, and

Boruszak expects more

kids to trickle in as the

season gets underway.

The eSports program

should continue to grow

in numbers thanks to its

new feeder program. Anthony

Pollina is a STEM

teacher at Deer Path Middle

School who started

a LOL program for his

students. Boruszak believes

the Deer Path team

has about 20 kids involved.

“We’re hopefully going

to have a large number

hopefully in the next couple

of years going through

the system,” Boruszak

said.

“The best part is I get

to have an excuse to

play video games and

it’s for a good reason,

more than just he’s sitting

on the couch. Getting

to share my enjoyment

of playing video games

with the students, seeing

the enthusiasm, the

intensity, the excitement

of being part of competitive

video game atmosphere.

For a lot of them,

their experiences with

video games have been

sitting at home on their

couch with a couple of

buddies. This gives them

an opportunity to have

some pride in their video

game playing, they get

to represent their school.

For a lot of them it’s the

first time they’ve been a

part of an organized team,

so it gives them that opportunity

to feel what it’s

like to be a part of a team

and to cheer one another

on. There were so many

games last year where it

was touch and go and then

we came out with the win.

To see the excitement on

their faces, the enthusiasm

they were showing during

the game, the composure

that they kept to keep us

in it. It was cool to see

just how excited they got

about taking something

they loved as a hobby and

turning it into something

that meant something.”

Scouts handle St. Viator in snowy Winter Classic

Nick Frazier, Sports Editor

Most of the Scouts grew

up playing outdoors at the

Winter Club of Lake Forest.

Yet not all of them

have played during snowfall.

Based on goaltender

Grant Salanty’s performance

in a 2-0 win over

St. Viator on Friday, Jan.

24, at the Winter Club, it

looked like Salanty had

been playing in blizzards

all his life. The junior

turned away shot after shot

despite the poor ice conditions

to lead Lake Forest

(19-12-3) to victory in the

“Winter Classic.”

“It was pretty crazy, I’ve

never played in a game like

that with the snow coming

down,” Salanty said. “At

the end of the day, we were

able to just keep it simple

and get the puck out when

we needed to and throw it

in front of their net and get

a lucky bounce.”

The rain at the beginning

of the game slowly

morphed into snow, making

the ice bumpy and

limiting skill play. Salanty

had to be at his best to

make sure the puck didn’t

get past him with a trick

bounce.

“The crease is a little

rough, I got to focus on

not sliding and staying up

a little more,” Salanty said.

“I also got to make sure

I’m following the puck

everywhere, you never

know where it’s going to

bounce.”

Of course, the Scouts

skaters also had to change

their gameplan due to the

conditions. With the ice

making the puck movement

unpredictable, Lake

Forest coach Steve Sarauer

said his guys limited passing

the puck backwards

“At the end of

the day they

stuck to the

plan, they listened,

and

they played as

a team.”

when in the offensive

zone. One bad bounce

could lead to a dangerous

turnover the Lions could

take advantage of.

“The other thing that we

noticed is that it was hard

to ice the puck because of

the conditions,” Sarauer

said. “It would take a

bounce, it would roll, it

was never getting all the

way down the ice. We had

a lot of pucks out of our

zone that we were able to

not ice the puck and were

able to put the pressure

back on them.”

Charlie Altounian put

the Scouts on the scoreboard

five minutes into

the game, poking the puck

through a scrum thanks

to an assist from Oliver

Pasquesi.

Hunter Dee then scored

two minutes into the second

period, and St. Viator

was unable to retaliate.

The Lions had a 6-on-4

power play with minutes

left on the clock, but

Salanty and company preserved

the shutout.

It was a total team effort

from the Scouts in taking

down a St. Viator squad

with 34 wins on the season.

“They were excited to

be here, the team was together,

they were happy

to be here,” Sarauer said.

“They knew the ice conditions

were not going to be

good, they were used to it.

At the end of the day they

stuck to the plan, they listened,

and they played as a

team.”

Lake Forest will now

turn its focus to the IHSHL

Champions Division playoffs.

After a game against

New Trier White on Jan.

29 that will serve as a

tune-up, the Scouts begin

its postseason run on Jan.

31 against Libertyville.

They won’t have to deal

with any snow in the playoffs,

but the Scouts know

they’ll face other challenges.

That’s why they’ve

bought into the team’s

gameplan in order to maximize

their potential.

“They all stuck with

what we were telling them

and it worked,” Sarauer

said. “That’s No. 1, understand

that what we’re telling

them is the best thing

to do in the right situation.

If they do it, they’re going

to be successful. Hopefully

they all understand that

as a team and it will help

them in the playoffs, and

hopefully state.”

Senior Night,

Stein exploded

for four goals to

to a 6-0 victory

over Evanston.

record, setting

rebounds in a win

over Glenbrook

South.

Kennedy Stein celebrated

her Senior Night by

doing what she does best:

scoring goals.

The Lake Forest High

School student dominated

in the Scouts’ 6-0 win over

Evanston on Sunday, Jan.

26, at Lake Forest College.

Stein netted four goals to

lead the co-op program to a

convincing victory.

Stein, who committed

to Augsburg University in

Minneapolis this past fall,

is a three-time All-State

player who made the most

of the special occasion.

“I’m really happy about

it,” Stein said of her fourgoal

performance. “I’m just

sad to have the season over,

I just put it all out for the

last game as a senior.”

The Scouts’ leading scorer

with 23 goals, Stein had

a strong fan section come

out to LFC to cheer on her

on and give her extra motivation

to fill the stat sheet.

“All my friends came,”

Stein said. “It’s the first

game they’ve ever been to,

so it was really exciting to

have them cheering me on

and motivating me.”

Highland Park seniors

Lillian Aston and Jess Krug

were also honored before

the game. Aston is a team

captain, and Krug is a defender

that leads the Scouts

in games played.

“Both great girls, they’ve

also both had great seasons,

they’re really coming

on,” Scouts first-year head

coach Katy Shadek said.

“As a coach this year, they

were two of the key players

that I was hearing about

that really were helpful on

the ice. I hope they continue

playing, because they

can really go somewhere

with it.”

Stein peppered shots on

net from the opening puck

drop, but it was Lake Forest

sophomore Emily Manfred

who scored first. She poked

the puck past the Wildkits

goalkeeper with a few

minutes left in the opening

period to put the Scouts on

the board.

Less than three minutes

into the second period,

Stein finally got on the

scoreboard. She scored

again near the end of the

period after Stevenson

sophomore Abby Benjamin

lit the lamp to put Lake

Forest up 4-0.

“We started off a little

slow, just couldn’t get it

in the back of the net but

had a lot of shots,” Shadek

said. “We played most

of the game in their end

which definitely shows on

the scoreboard. Once we

started getting them in we

opened the floodgates and

everything pulled together.”

Stein scored two more

goals in the final frame,

taking the puck all the way

down the ice and zipping it

past the goalkeeper on both

occasions. Highland Park

sophomore Sarah Matthews

picked up the shutout

win for the Scouts.

In actuality, the Scouts

have a few more regularseason

games left. But

Stein is still making the

most of her time with Lake

Forest before moving on to

the collegiate level.

“It’s been really fun having

all the different schools

together,” Stein said. “I’ve

made a lot of friends and

I’m going to miss it a lot.”

“I was thrilled for the opportunity to tell my wife

that my video game playing was for more than

just my own entertainment.”
