Holiday Happenings stay true to Tinley Park tradition

F. Amanda Tugade, Editor

Thanksgiving Day is the

first inkling of the holiday

season, and the countdown

to Christmas is surely well

underway. The Village of

Tinley Park is well aware

of that, and will mark the

first weekend of December

with plenty of activities

for families, couples and

friends to enjoy.

For the last 11 years,

many have flocked to Holiday

Happenings, a threeday

affair that kicks off with

the Mayor’s Tree Lighting

Ceremony Zabrocki Plaza

and closes with the Parade

of Lights at 177th Street

along Oak Park Avenue.

But Marketing Director

Donna Framke points to all

of the fun events planned in

between those days.

“It’s basically a community

celebration weekend

for all of the holiday stuff,”

she said.

Lighting the way

The Tinley tradition centers

on lighting the 35-foot

tall Christmas tree at 6 p.m.

on Friday, Dec. 2, and those

interested in taking part in

a festive sing-along with

community members are

encouraged to arrive at 5:30

p.m. Immediately after the

ceremony, guests can step

inside the holiday market’s

tents.

Framke said this year, the

market has brought together

22 vendors. While most of

the list includes returning

favorites – from Usborne

Books & More to OJAMS

Holiday Floral – it is to also

see newcomers like the K9

Cookie Factory, Salina’s

Pasta and Pizza, Embroidery

by Anne, Custom Knitted

Jewelry 4U and Chicago

Candle Factory.

The idea of the holiday

market is modeled after the

Christkindlmarket in Chicago,

which gives an opportunity

for area entrepreneurs

and small business owners

to showcase their crafts

and for shoppers to find the

perfect gifts for that special

someone, Framke shared.

The gift of giving

Saturday, Dec. 3, however,

is reserved especially

for the children, and the

day starts at 11:45 a.m. with

Tinley’s Toyland Parade at

175th Street. What is most

special about this parade is

that it welcomes Mr. and

Mrs. Claus, who will later

be available for a free photo

opportunity courtesy of the

Village at the Oak Park Avenue

Metra train station,

Framke said.

“I love the whole Santa’s

arrival,” she said, noting

seeing the children’s

faces when they spot Santa

breathes life into the magic

of Christmas.

Parade aside, the Village

has packed that Saturday

with so much fun for

patrons. Riding on an

church and stopping by the

campfire to make s’mores

are just a few things they

can look forward to.

Framke said the Village

is collecting donations of

unwrapped gifts and nonperishable

food items from

guests, which will be given

to Together We Cope and to

the Tinley Park Food Pantry.

Capturing the spirit

Holiday Happenings is

sealed with the Parade of

Lights, which is to take

place at 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec.

4.

That parade is a full display

of Tinley’s community,

including businesses, organizations

and bands from elementary

and high schools.

Santa, too, is to make another

appearance.

Framke said another aspect

she enjoys the most is

watching “all of the talent”

D230 superintendent leads

Twitter chat with staff, educators

F. Amanda Tugade, Editor

“What does ‘Leading by

Learning’ mean to you?”

That was the first question

Superintendent James Gay

asked his fellow colleagues,

faculty and staff on Nov. 21

during the first-ever Consolidated

High School District

230 Twitter chat. The conversation,

which took place

from 8 to 9 p.m., invited

administration and teachers

from Andrew, Sandburg and

Stagg high schools to discuss

how using different types of

technology in the classrooms

have benefitted their students.

Hours before Gay took

to Twitter, he shared that he

was “kind of nervous” using

the social media platform

and was not sure what would

come from the experience,

but nonetheless, he was looking

forward to it.

“This is something different,”

Gay said of the concept.

He noted the main purpose

of hosting an online forum

is to reach as many people as

he could in the district, build

that community and make

participants feel comfortable

enough to voice their opinions

and share their ideas

without leaving the comfort

of their own homes; using

www.christlutheranorland.com

the hashtag “d230connect”

linked the thread together.

Gay tweeted a total of

seven questions that Monday

evening, which asked many

to take a closer look at what

resources are available for

use to combine technology

with lesson plans, how to

continue promoting digitalbased

learning and express

areas of concerns and improvements.

“It was packed, and the

hour flew by,” Gay said in an

interview with The Junction

following the chat. “It was

so cool, and I was so excited;

I was so excited. I mean, I

sound like a kid.”

And he pointed to his final

question as an example of the

district’s effort to create an

educational environment for

the students.

He asked, “What are you

most excited about trying or

learning over the next 6 to 12

months?”, and he was overwhelmed

by the responses.

“That went on longer than

I thought it would go,” Gay

said, noting he was surprised

by people’s willingness to

share their own journey as

educators.

“I’m looking forward to

the innovation our students

will bring forward as we continue

to provide them with

[a] tech platform. #d230connect,”

tweeted Abir Othman,

associate principal at Andrew

High School.

Kimberly Onak, a special

education and biology

teacher at Stagg, responded

with “blogging has been on

my ‘to try’ list, and I am exploring

this for [my]self and

students.”

And Director of Communications

Carla Erdey looked

to a YouTube video, which

helped give a visual aid on

how district students have

used their Google Chromebooks

to complete class

work, as well as collaborate

with their peers and teachers

on projects.

“Kids can work on Google

docs, work on projects and be

online on real time,” Gay said

of the advantages of giving

Chromebooks to students.

“They’re talking to each other,

and they’re creating.”

“The concept of collaboration

and working together is

really a skill that people in

need in the real world,” he

continued. “Those are skills

that I think will help them be

successful.”

Pleased by the outcome of

the Twitter chat, Gay said he

is already planning for the

next one, and he hopes to turn

this into a monthly feature to

talk about other topics.

When asked to reflect on

his own phrase “leading by

learning,” Gay noted he and

his staff are committed to

taking risks, facing challenges,

accepting the failures that

may come with trying something

new and recognizing

the small wins.

“That is a huge mind set,”

he said. “The first-ever district

chat, it was a great success,

and it was because of

the willingness of our staff

to work together to better

our kids. To me, that’s what

we’re all about.”

GiGi’s Playhouse in Tinley hosts vendor fair

Megann Horstead

Freelance Reporter

It wasn’t a hard sell to drive

community members out to

support an event that aims to

create awareness for GiGi’s

Playhouse Down Syndrome

Achievement Center, a

nonprofit organization

that offers educational and

therapy programs for families

and individuals with Down

syndrome.

The event – which was

held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Saturday, Nov. 19 at Zion Lutheran

Church in Tinley Park

– provided an opportunity for

area mothers turned entrepreneurs

and members of the

playhouse’s Tinley chapter to

showcase their work, products

and companies’ missions

to attendees, and the story

kicks off with Gina Buffone.

Buffone, a New Lenox

resident, is a consultant for

clothing line LuLaRoe. “I

decided to start it because I

would really like to spend

more time at home with

my girls,” Buffone said.

She noted her 11-monthold

daughter was diagnosed

with Down syndrome in

September of 2015.

“Before I even had my

daughter, GiGi’s Playhouse

was just such a phenomenal

part of my life,” she recalled

of looking to the group for

holidays

From Page 3

“It’s amazing to see people

come out and watch

the talent,” Framke said.

“You have all the families;

everyone coming out; you

see some multi-generational

families come out to watch

the little ones perform.”

But what draws people to

Downtown Tinley, especially

during this time of year,

is that the event is “really

community-oriented,” and

help during her pregnancy.

“It took away the fear; it

brought on the excitement,

and they’ve been alongside

me this entire journey since

I’ve had her.”

And seeing people come

to the fair makes the day so

much more meaningful, Buffone

added.

“It’s remarkable; it just

gives me a goose bump

thinking about it,” she said.

“That’s really another reason

why I’ve chosen this business.

It’s because there’s so

many opportunities to give

back to the community. I’ve

already done events for Lu-

LaRoe, and I’ve been able

to donate proceeds to go to

GiGi’s Playhouse. Knowing

today, that that’s exactly what

we’re doing is the best thing

ever.”

Diane Husar, founder

of GiGi’s Playhouse in

Tinley, said the idea of

having the event made sense

for the organization’s parents.

“A lot of our moms are

small business owners,” she

said. “It was an idea to first

off do a fundraiser for GiGi’s,

but also to promote moms

More than 15 vendors were

“it’s a nice celebration,” she

Jackie Bobbitt, executive

director of the Tinley Park

shared Framke’s sentiments.

Bobbitt said the chamber,

too, continued its tradition

of their products.

Laurie Cepkauskas, of

Homer Glen, came to the

fair to not only represent

Pampered Chef, a company

centered on selling cooking

utensils, but to share with

others her own experience at

GiGi’s.

“I know that they do so

much in the community not

just for me and my family,

alone, but they do,” Cepkauskas

said. “There’s always

free events and classes. Everything

they do is free. To

come here and help support

them and myself and other

moms in this community, it’s

really inspiring.”

Cepkaukas explained all of

Pampered Chef’s products,

which includes an assortment

of mixers, makers and

kits, displayed at her station

are meant to get kids excited

about preparing food in the

kitchen, and the fair gives

her an opportunity to create

exposure for her business and

highlight GiGi’s.

“My daughter had two

open heart surgeries at a

very young age,” Cepkauskas

said. “She has more open

heart surgeries to go. GiGi’s

has helped put me in touch

with other moms and the

best support group, just connecting

and reaching out.

They’ve always been there.”

Bobbitt added what drives

the Trim-A-Tree tradition

is the inclusion of local

groups, who help decorate

the trees.

“For us, it’s all about

helping out our businesses,”

she said of the chamber’s

effort.

“This is one of those

ways to use their support,”

she said. “It’s something

unique, and all of the trees

are kind of themed. It’s nice

to have the community out

there and supporting the

whole idea of it.”

Publisher 22CM hosts seventh annual Cheers to Charity program

Ryan Esguerra

Freelance Reporter

For the seventh year in a

row, publisher 22nd Century

Media kicked off the holiday

season with the Cheers

to Charity event Nov. 23 at

Rock Bottom Restaurant &

Brewery in Orland Park.

The event — which was

the result of a partnership

between Rock Bottom and

the parent company of The

Tinley Junction — collected

food, toys and funds for the

Orland Township Food Pantry

and Toy Box Connection.

Heather Warthen, 22nd

Century Media chief events

officer and former editor of

The Orland Park Prairie,

said this year’s edition of the

Cheers for Charity event focused

its efforts on preserving

the warm community

feel that has made it successful

in years past.

“This year, we decided to

focus our efforts on one location

in order to get back to

basics,” Warthen said. “We

try to give that sense of community

in every event that

we host. But this one is special,

in that it has been going

for so long.

“It is a simple yet fun

event geared toward wanting

everyone to come out and

have a great night together.”

Cheers for Charity also

acted as a tapping party

for Rock Bottom’s holiday

brew, Rudolph The Prairie

Red. Attendees who brought

in three canned goods, or one

toy, for donation received a

ticket for a free beer courtesy

of Rock Bottom or $5

off their bill. Those who purchased

a pint of the Rudolph

with cash also were given a

commemorative glass. For

every glass of the signature

beer sold through Dec. 16,

Rock Bottom will donate 25

cents to the Orland Township

Food Pantry. Also, the

evening of the event, from

6-10 p.m., Rock Bottom

Bianca Cortez, of Orland Park, places a present in the

donation bin during Cheers to Charity.

pledged that 10 percent of its

sales also would be donated

to the food pantry.

On hand at the event were

chamber singers from Sandburg

High School, who performed

various Christmas

carols for attendees.

“I just moved here from

Indianapolis, so this is my

first event, and I can honestly

say I have never seen anything

like this before,” Rock

Bottom Assistant Manager

Elizabeth Ferguson said. “It

is a huge turnout, and everyone

has been so wonderful

in donating and humbling

themselves to other people.

“You can definitely feel

the holiday spirit here.”

Jerry Emperor and his

wife, Michelle, of New

Lenox, are regulars at Rock

Bottom and came to the

event by chance. Emperor

said that while he did not

visit for the event exclusively,

he and his wife are

pleased that they were in attendance.

“We are sort of Tuesday

night regulars here, so we

kind of just walked in on

this,” Emperor said. “This

event is truly excellent. The

cause is great, and we are really

pleased that we could be

a part of it tonight.”

In attendance at the Cheers

for Charity event were Robin

Kassis and Marianne Hill

from the Orland Food Pantry.

The food pantry serves nearly

300 families each month,

a number that increases dramatically

during the holiday

season. Kassis said events

like these are crucial to the

success of the pantry in more

ways than one.

“Events like these are so

important,” Kassis said. “Not

in terms of just collections,

but in giving other people inspiration

to help out, as well.

Maddie Schott, a Sandburg High School junior, performs with the school’s chamber

singers at Cheers to Charity.

When they see that someone

else is doing something for

the community, they get ideas

to help out themselves.”

Hill added that charity

events also get organizations

involved in the act of giving.

“When other businesses,

churches and schools see

events like these, we hope

they are encouraged to lend

a helping hand, as well,” Hill

said. “It will be a snowball

effect of encouragement and

help.”

Despite only having one

location this year, Warthen

said support for the event is

as strong as it has ever been.

“It is an awesome experience,

just to see both of the

bins that we have filled each

and every year,” Warthen

said. “People in the community

are very generous, and

we couldn’t be more appreciative.”

“Credit to Rock Bottom

for being a wonderful partner

in all of this since coming to

Orland years ago. We at 22nd

Century Media couldn’t ask

for any better.”

Turning party favors

into a good deed

Tinley Park girl

donates toys to the

cancer foundation

F. Amanda Tugade, Editor

Everyone knows the saying:

it is better to give than

receive.

And Ella Beaudry kept

that mantra at the forefront

of her recent birthday party.

Beaudry, of Tinley Park,

turned 7 years old on Oct.

20, and she invited her closest

friends to a fun moviethemed

celebration at the

Tinley Park Performing

Arts Center.

The only condition attendees

had to abide by was

that they had to bring a toy

that she would later donate

to The Pediatric Oncology

Treasure Chest Foundation,

an Orland Park-based nonprofit

organization whose

mission is to provide toys

and smiles to children with

cancer. With at least 20

guests in attendance at her

party, Ella’s mother Dawn

said her daughter collected

more than 30 toys.

On Nov. 4, Dawn dropped

off the donations at the

foundation. Dolls, coloring

books and craft kits were

items available in the selection.

To add, this is not the first

time Ella has turned her

birthday party into a mission

to help others. Dawn

said the idea to donate Ella’s

toys first began as an

effort to declutter.

“We started it when she

was 5,” Dawn said, adding

she found out about

the foundation through an

advertisement and thought

they would be the perfect

recipients. “We researched

[the Treasure Chest] through

the website, and we liked

what they were about.”

Dawn noted that since

then, the initiative to give

away toys to other children

came from Ella, herself.

“I wanted to make sick

kids better, happy!” Ella

said of her deed.

When asked to reflect

on her daughter’s actions,

Dawn added, “It makes me

feel proud that she loves to

do that and help other kids

who need cheering up.”

Colleen Kisel, founder

and CEO of the Treasure

Chest Foundation, shared

Dawn’s sentiments.

“In this day of age when

little girls are asking for the

latest toy, this little girl is

giving away the latest toys

to kids fighting cancer,”

she said. “There are 37,000

children and teens undergoing

treatment in the nation,

and we’re serving 10,000.

If there were more Ella’s in

the world, we could serve

more kids fighting cancer.”

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Mokena’s annual Christmas

Fest gets residents into

holiday spirit

It began to look a lot like

Christmas the weekend of

Nov. 19 in Mokena.

The Mokena Chamber of

Commerce kicked off the

holiday season Nov. 19 with

its annual Christmas Fest. The

all-day affair started in the

morning, with Santa’s Workshop

at Mokena Elementary

School, and concluded 12

hours later with the Family

Christmas Dance at the William

Martin VFW Post 725.

In between was lunch and

photos with Santa and Mrs.

Claus, the decorating of the

Village’s Christmas tree, the

Parade of Lights down Front

Street and Girl Scouts singing

Christmas songs.

Mokena Trustee George

Metanias lit the tree in front

of a crowd of hundreds, who

ventured downtown for the

occasion despite it being a

frigid evening.

The Chamber has held

its Christmas Fest the Saturday

before Thanksgiving

for more than 20 years. This

year, at Santa’s Workshop,

children made glittery, redand-green

crafts and decorated

cookies with frosting

and sprinkles, while Christmas

songs, including “Jingle

Bells” and “You’re a Mean

The Tinley Junction

Contact

Renee Burke

One, Mr. Grinch,” played

over the sound system.

The youths also shared

with Santa their Christmas

wishes, although more than a

few of the littlest ones made

it to the front of the line only

to decide sitting on the Big

Man’s lap was not something

they really wanted to do.

“They’re all excited that

they’re here, and then all of

a sudden it’s like, ‘No, I don’t

want to go see them,’” said

Debbie Engler, the Christmas

Fest chairwoman and a Village

trustee, with a laugh.

FROM THE ORLAND PARK PRAIRIE

Pickleball presence could

increase, following

presentation to officials

Is Orland Park soon to become

the south suburban hub

of what is being described as

the “fastest growing sport” in

the United States?

Orland Park resident Tom

Utterback, pickleball ambassador

for the Southwest

Suburban Pickleball Club,

presented a proposal for expanding

the sport in the village

during the Nov. 21 Parks

and Recreation Committee

meeting at Village Hall.

“I am here to introduce

pickleball to Orland Park,

708.609.8338

r.burke@22ndcenturymedia.com

with the possible opportunity

to put in dedicated pickleball

courts inside or outside,” Utterback

said.

His proposal would be to

take two tennis courts and

put six pickleball courts

on them. Rough estimates

would be about $6,000 for

hardware and $10,000 to resurface

courts. He also listed

some options for where the

pickleball courts could be

added, including at Centennial,

Eagle Ridge, Cachey or

Schussler parks.

Utterback said roughly

2.5 million people are playing

pickleball in the United

States alone.

“In three years, pickleball

is expected to grow to 8 million

people,” he said. “It’s the

fastest growing sport in the

world.”

According to his presentation,

a pickleball court is 20

feet by 44 feet, and the net is

2 inches shorter than a tennis

net.

A ball with holes, similar

in design and size to a whiffle

ball, is used, as well as “an

oversized ping-pong paddle,”

Utterback said. The game is

typically played to 11 points,

and the winner must have at

least a two-point lead.

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

Lockport alum wraps up

accomplished wide receiver

career at SIU

When Billy Reed arrived

at Southern Illinois University

five years ago, he obviously

had never caught a

pass for the college.

Now, after his final game,

he is leaving as one the

greatest wide receivers in

school history.

Reed, a Lockport Township

High School alum, became

just the 13th Saluki

player with 100-plus receptions.

He finished with 118

catches for 1,474 yards and

nine touchdowns in his collegiate

career.

This past season, he pulled

down 14 passes against Illinois

State to set an SIU and

Missouri Valley Football

Conference record for the

most receptions in a single

game for 2015. He amassed

805 receiving yards his junior

year, the fifth-most in

SIU single-season history.

“Nobody really expected

that out of me, so I’m glad I

could show that I could play

receiver and transition,”

Reed said. “I think I owe a

lot of it to my coach [wide

receivers coach Ashton] Aikens,

because he worked

with me a lot. He saw that I

was a raw athlete and transformed

me into a receiver.”

Despite playing baseball

most of his life, Reed chose

to forgo the sport his senior

year in high school in order

to focus on football. He began

playing for the Homer

Stallions in junior high and

instantly fell in love with the

sport, he said.

“It’s the ultimate team

game,” the 6-foot-1,

207-pound receiver said.

“There’s 100 guys in the

[SIU] locker room who all

have different stories about

where they come from … and

we all meet in the middle.”

FROM THE HOMER HORIZON

Chamber, Will County

Sheriff’s Office educate

residents on handling active

shooter situation

The Homer Glen Area

Chamber of Commerce and

Will County Sheriff’s Office

paired up Nov. 22 to educate

residents on what to do if

they find themselves in the

middle of an active shooter

situation.

Will County Sheriff’s

Deputy Bob Parker and Lt.

Jim Holuj led the presentation,

which was held at Village

Hall. They emphasized

the importance of being proactive,

especially with the

swelling crowds the holiday

season brings.

“The biggest thing is just

to be aware of your surroundings,”

Holuj said.

“Know what you’re heading

into, look around and

don’t just pay attention to

your cellphone. Look up and

look around and see who’s

around you and what’s going

on around you.”

With incidents occurring

around the world in highvolume

places such as movie

theatres, restaurants, music

venues and outdoor events,

the men told attendees that

“time is of the essence.” If

they come face-to-face with

an active shooter, residents

need to react in one of three

ways: run, hide or fight.

“I’m not trying to make

you wear diapers and lose

all bodily functions; I just

want you to be more aware,”

Parker said. “Do we fight

back, do we run or do we

hide? That’s up to you. We

can’t do it for you; we can

only make you more aware.”

from the editor

Here comes the holiday season

F. Amanda Tugade

Editor

There’ll always be a

special place in my

heart for the holidays.

As soon as Halloween is

over, my mother would start

preparing for the next three:

Thanksgiving, Christmas

and New Year. The fall and

winter seasons are her favorite

times of the year; she

loves watching the colors of

the leaves change, the smell

of warm apple cider and the

cozy, fuzzy feeling that you

get when you’re surrounded

by loved ones, favorite

foods and familiar songs.

For the past two years,

we’ve celebrated the fall

by going apple picking at

County Line Orchard in

Indiana. The end of November

is sealed with Black

Friday shopping to avoid

panic-buying and procrastination

for gift shopping,

and December is for visiting

the Christkindlmarket in

Chicago and attending the

midnight Mass on Christmas

Eve.

On Christmas Day, I can

always expect to hear my

mother hustling and bustling

in the kitchen, the sounds

of pans clanging together.

It’s usually the same scene:

she’ll have the telephone

pressed between her ear

and her shoulder, while one

hand is holding a wooden

spoon to stir a pot and the

other is grabbing and reaching

for an extra ingredient.

Her laugh served as an

alarm clock for me, and I’ll

overhear her conversations

with her sisters. These longdistance

phone calls are a

prize for her, as well as an

extension of her spirit.

I have kept these memories,

these rituals and these

traditions close to me. As

I have grown older, I have

come to cherish them deeply.

They’re more than just a

ritual; they’re a reminder of

my mother and my father,

and the times that we’ve

spent together.

In this issue of The Junction,

you’ll find a preview

of what’s to come for this

year’s Holiday Happenings.

The three-day event –

which is to take place from

Friday, Dec. 2, to Sunday,

Dec. 4 – is packed with

parades and sing-alongs,

as well as opportunities for

splurging on hot chocolate,

photo ops with Santa and so,

so much more. It should be a

wonderful treat and the perfect

way to start December.

That being said, please

feel free to pass along your

Christmas cheer on to me.

If you and your family have

any traditions, I’d love

to know! If you love to

dress up your pets for the

holidays, go ahead and send

them over to me; I’ll have

them featured as Pet of the

Week. Go on and get in

Cook County enacts

beverage tax instead of

fixing problems

A beverage tax was passed

by the Cook County Board

on Nov. 10 as a key element

to fund the Cook County

2017 budget. This new tax

[is to] add one penny for every

one ounce of a beverage

drink, which means an additional

$2.88 for a 24-pack of

beverage drinks.

I appreciate the fact that

many Cook County constituents

have paid close attention

to Cook County’s 2017

budget process and specifically

this tax proposal, as

hundreds contacted my office

to express their opposition

to this tax.

Contrary to most public

headlines that call it just a

“soda tax,” that couldn’t

be further from the truth.

This massive and expansive

tax includes a list of nearly

1,000 individual beverages,

including fruit juices, teas,

coffees, energy and sports

drinks, enhanced waters,

sodas, and diet sodas. This

beverage tax goes too far,

by hitting our residents too

hard in their pocketbooks,

especially Chicago residents,

and hurts our local

businesses.

I firmly opposed this

heavy-handed tax for multiple

reasons.

First, the tax purposely

singles out a specific private

sector industry and is too

expansive and creates a revenue

stream that goes far beyond

the means it is intended

to serve.

Second, there is still too

much redundant and unnecessary

spending and political

clout jobs that could be cut

from the 2017 budget before

looking at additional taxes to

fix budget shortfalls.

Third, this tax will cause

further damage to private

sector jobs in exchange for

protecting government patronage

jobs.

Fourth, it further places

Cook County businesses

at a competitive disadvantage

against our neighboring

counties and the State

of Indiana, when just a short

commute to shop across the

border means lost customers

and lost revenue for Cook

County.

Once again, Cook County

government is committing

itself to another horrible tax

policy, which will add more

long term damage to our local

economy.

Maher Funeral Home hosts event for Survivor Day

Amanda Del Buono

Freelance Reporter

Suicide is the 10th leading

cause of death in the country,

and every year, 42,773

Americans have died by suicide,

according to the American

Foundation for Suicide

Prevention. The foundation

recognizes that the number

may be much higher because

of underreported cases, especially

since there is a stigma

that lingers with suicide.

What adds another layer

to this are the loved ones

left behind who continue to

struggle and learn how to

cope through their losses.

For them, the AFSP has

hosted an International Survivors

of Suicide Loss Day,

and this year, the organization

brought the free event

to the Maher Funeral Home

in Tinley Park on Saturday,

Nov. 19.

Open to the public, Survivor

Day allows people to

unite and find comfort.

Phillip Maher, owner

of the funeral home, said

having his family-owned

business involved in this

particular occasion was important.

“Personally, our family

suffered the tragic loss with

our cousin,” he said. “When

we opened the funeral home,

we wanted to be more than

just a funeral home, but a

place for people to come

and gather — a community

outreach. … We’re hoping

[attendees] get a little bit of

solace, a little bit of comfort

here today.”

Phillip’s uncle, Robert,

shared when his son took

this life three years ago, it

wrecked his life, and since

then, he started working at

the funeral home as a way to

work through his own grieving,

to heal and to help others

along the way.

“It’s been a godsend to

Megan Mottier, of Oak Lawn, attends Survivor Day on

Saturday, Nov. 19, at Maher Funeral Home in Tinley Park.

me,” he said. “I can feel their

pain, and it helps me in some

way.”

All of the Survivor Day

events included a screening

of “Life Journeys: Reclaiming

Life After Loss,”

a documentary produced by

AFSP that follows survivors’

losses over a course of time

and a balloon release.

New Lenox Mayor Tim

Baldermann, funeral director

Eric Hoffmann, the

Rev. John Breslin and the

Rev. Tomy Abraham of St.

George Church were in attendance.

Although only a few people

attended the Saturday

event, the numbers provided

an intimate setting, and Survivor

Day is a reminder for

goers that they are not alone.

Maureen Lundgren,

of Tinley Park, lost her

23-year-old son to suicide

this summer.

While still deeply saddened,

she said she found

some solace by being surrounded

by those who could

understand her pain. After

the film screening, she noted

a part in the movie that addressed

loved ones’ emotional

distress and anger through

their grieving process.

“I could never be angry

with him,” she said. “Is it

possible some people were

born to go to heaven? I think

he was.”

Oak Lawn resident Megan

Mottier met Lundgren for

the first time at the event,

and the two began to bond

over their experiences. Mottier

said she lost her brother

to suicide three years ago.

“I never experienced anger

toward him,” Mottier said to

the group. “I was ready to

defend him. It’s changed the

course of my life for sure.”

Having lost his brother to

suicide 25 years ago, Baldermann

told his story.

“I lost my brother in

1991,” Baldermann said.

“He was 19 years old. It was

obviously very difficult for

my family and myself, and

it still is 25 years later. …

I know there’s a stigma on

suicide and mental illness

and depression, and it’s unfortunate.

It gets swept under

the rug, but it can impact

anybody.”

Baldermann said he often

speaks at events for survivors

or suicide prevention,

and he has taken a step further

and started the “Healing

Hearts” Survivors of Suicide

support group that meets at

the New Lenox Police Department.

“It’s not something that I

don’t think about anymore,”

he noted of his personal tie

Suicide Prevention and serves as a meeting for those who have lost loved ones to suicide.

and effort to provide help.

“I’m constantly thinking

about it anyway, so it’s not

like talking about it brings

up anything that isn’t already

there.”

Breslin added he hopes

to bring some light to this

cause, as well as into the

lives of those who have been

affected by suicide.

“We need to take the cover

off of the darkness,” he said.

“For so long, we’ve looked

upon suicide as a weakness.

They’re not alone; it’s not

that they’re weak, and it’s

OK to talk about and not to

be ashamed. … There’s a

need for all of us to really

reach out to someone and

educate them about what are

the signs and the potential

signs of suicide.”

The Dish

Complex, homemade dishes aplenty at Egg Headz Cafe

James Sanchez

Contributing Editor

A laid-back, leisurely environment

is what one might

expect when walking into a

breakfast establishment on a

normal weekday morning.

There is no such atmosphere

at Egg Headz Cafe.

A Thursday morning at the

Tinley Park restaurant is met

with exuberant chatter from

families and couples at their

tables, while servers bustle

about, taking orders and serving

food. The short clink and

rattle of silverware hitting the

plate was constant throughout

the 190-seat eatery, which

often is near capacity.

Yet, owner Peter Mastorakos

is not fazed, looking over

at the waiting area at the front

of the door to only see a few

patrons waiting to be seated.

“This is calm for us,” Mastorakos

said. This is like a

walk in the park.”

That’s because on weekends

at Egg Headz, that area

is packed to the point where

lines are out the door and

with patrons waiting to eat

from more than 70 different

breakfast options (more

than 150 total, including the

lunch menu) — all of which

Mastorakos proudly said are

homemade and cooked with

quality ingredients.

With numerous breakfast

spots all over the south suburbs,

going the extra step

in making everything from

scratch is his recipe to standing

out against his competition.

And that is not just limited

to the food. It has a juice bar

for freshly squeezed items,

including orange, Fuji apple,

pear and cranberry, as well

as mixtures, like its signature

blend of pineapple, banana

and spinach.

“It costs a little extra, but

you could taste the difference,”

he said of his press

juicers.

The Tuscan Chicken Panini ($9.59) has chunks of grilled

chicken breast as a base, and it is topped with pesto, sundried

tomatoes and mozzarella. Roasted red pepper mayo

and a pickle is served on the side, along with an option for

either a bowl of soup or pasta salad.

The natural, sweet beverage

plays as a perfect complement

to all of the savory

offerings Egg Headz has,

including its signature steak

skillet ($11.59). The heaping

dish comes with 8 ounces of

grilled sirloin steak, shredded

hash browns, mushrooms,

onions, green peppers, and

Monterey jack and cheddar

cheese, topped with two eggs

any way.

Mastorakos served it with

eggs sunny-side up for the

yolk to run through every

layer of the skillet concoction

to help the cheeses pull

together the ingredients for a

hearty, creamy bite in every

forkful.

Those who prefer a sweeter

breakfast can go for the

French sampler ($9.99),

which is French toast served

three different ways. One

third is Egg Headz’s signature

French toast, which is

stuffed with mascarpone and

cream cheese, then topped

with cherry kijafa. The other

is red velvet covered in fresh,

glazed strawberries. And the

last is banana nut, topped with

bananas and walnuts.

A dollop of whipped cream

is placed in the middle, and

powdered sugar and cinnamon

are sprinkled all over

the plate. Those are all part

of Mastorakos’ motto to “eat

with your eyes first, and then

with your mouth.”

“I think if something looks

good on the plate and tastes

good, that’s very important,”

Mastorakos said. “A lot of

people don’t pay attention to

how the food is presented to

the customer.”

To accommodate a wider

clientele and customer requests,

Egg Headz added

its own gluten-free menu of

waffles, pancakes and crepes.

He said he did his research

in finding the combination

of perfect gluten-free flours.

He found a combination that

makes for light and creamy

dishes.

“You have to listen to the

customer of what their needs

and wants are,” he said.

“You have to adjust with the

times.”

The Egg Headz Signature ($11.59) is a skillet featuring roughly 8 ounces of grilled sirloin

steak, mixed with shredded hash browns, green peppers, onions, a blend of cheeses and

topped with two eggs any way. It also is served with buttermilk pancakes or toast. Photos

by James Sanchez/22nd Century Media

For the sweeter palate, the French sampler ($9.99) serves French toast three different

ways: stuffed French toast, topped with cherry kijafa; red velvet, topped with fresh, glazed

strawberries; and banana nut, topped with bananas and walnuts.

Listening to the customers

and doling out good food

is what has delivered Egg

Headz’s lively, busy atmosphere

since opening in 2010.

The restaurant is to hit its sixyear

anniversary at the end of

the month.

“I truly enjoy this, as hectic

as it gets,” he said. “I still get

a rush every time I come in

here.”

A dish not to miss ...

Mastorakos said the Tuscan

chicken panini ($9.59)

is one of the favorites for the

lunch crowd. It has chunks

of grilled chicken breast as

a base, and it is layered with

pesto, sun-dried tomatoes

and mozzarella. Roasted red

pepper mayo and a pickle

is served on the side, along

with your choice of a bowl

of homemade soup or the restaurant’s

famed pasta salad.

Foresters Camera Club

Once a week is weak.

You don’t have to wait until the paper

arrives for your news.

This week’s Foresters Camera Club Photo of the Week comes from Tinley Park resident

Bonnie Wydra. Here’s what she had to say about her image titled “Fall Harvest at the

Farmers Market.”

“While shopping at the Tinley Park Farmers Market on Saturday morning in late August

I came across these gourds for sale reminding me that harvest time and Thanksgiving

Day was just around the corner,” Wydra shared.

The Foresters Camera Club Photo of the Week is a regular feature in The Tinley Junction depicting

some of the best pictures from club members. The FCC consists of approximately 30 members from

Tinley Park, Orland Park, Mokena, Palos Heights, Homer Glen, Worth, Midlothian and Frankfort.

The group meets from 7-9 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at Palos United

Methodist Church in Palos Heights. Anyone interested in joining the club should contact Bob Dietz

A Newly Built Crana Home Offers Major Advantages

After a long period

of low interest rates on

to continue. For home

shoppers this means the

best price and stay

ahead of rising interest

rates. But remember, the

with Joey Krutilla

Joey Krutilla is a senior at

How did you start

playing basketball?

I was really young, so it’s

really hard to remember.

My dad started getting me

into recreational leagues,

and I’ve been playing every

since.

What’s your favorite

part of the game?

The team aspect of the

game. You have a whole

bench with you, and I like

the competition of the game.

What are your goals for

this year?

We set our goal for the

team, we want to get better

each and every day. In

the past couple of years we

haven’t been the most winning,

so we want to change

that.

for a day, who would

you choose?

Drake. He’s my favorite

has a good life and

enjoys most of it. If I had

Drake’s voice, I’d sing; it

would be fun.

What are you binge

watching on Netflix

I was watching “American

Bora Bora. It’s really cool,

I’d love to go there. I’d go

Boys basketball

Titans take last place in Thanksgiving Classic

Frank Gogola

Freelance Reporter

Tinley Park’s Chris Edwards goes up against two defenders

at the Nov. 21 Thanksgiving Classic game.

Tinley Park boys basketball

opened its season by

finishing in last place at the

Joliet West High School Tiger

Thanksgiving Classic

on Nov. 21. The Titans went

0-8 in the eight-team, weeklong

tournament. They lost

to host Joliet West, 91-49;

Lincoln-Way Central, 58-

45; and to Rich South in

pool play, 54-53. In the final

matchup, they lost to Plainfield

South, 67-61.

The season didn’t open

exactly the way the Titans

had hoped. In the opener,

they took a 3-2 lead over

Joliet West before allowing

a 24-0 run and falling into

a 26-3 hole. They trailed

30-7 at the end of the first

quarter.

The deficit got stretched

further as the Titans trailed

54-16 at the half. They

committed 23 turnovers and

shot 7-of- 18 from the field

and 0-of- 2 from the freethrow-

line.

“We were shook. We

were nervous,” Tinley Park

coach D.J. Davis said. “We

just didn’t come ready to

play. (After the 24-0 run)

we could just tell the look

on the kids’ faces it just

wasn’t where we thought

we needed to be at all.”

The Titans committed

33 turnover in all, including

lazy passes and stepping

out of bounds. They

lost the rebounding battle

overall and on the offensive

boards. They shot 7-of- 12

from the free-throw line,

but they only made it to the

charity stripe three times

in the first three quarters,

before West’s second team

came in.

It was the turnovers that

most concerned Davis. And

it was the turnovers, he believes,

that are the easiest to

correct.

“That’s a team that feasts

over turnovers,” Davis said.

“Our turnovers turned into

easy baskets for them. To

compete with a team like that

you have to value the ball. We

didn’t value the ball. “We’ll

live with an aggressive mistake,

but we can’t live with a

lazy mistake.”

That was the message Davis

shared with his young

team in the huddle throughout

the game. With only two

senior starters, Davis called

this season a rebuilding year

but said the Titans are capable

of playing competitive

basketball.

“We got some nice

pieces,” Davis said. “It’s just

a matter of finding where

those pieces fit. We’ve

got a handful of juniors, a

few seniors and a couple

sophomores. Finding guys

where they fit is going to be

the tale of our season.”

Davis and the team have

set high goals. They want to

finish with a record of .500

or better and win a regional

championship.

The Titans lost four of

their five leading scorers

from last season’s team,

which lost in a regional

quarterfinal. Those players

accounted for a combined

27.6 points per game.

Against West, senior starter

Brelyn Moore scored nine

points but sat out most of

the second half with four

fouls. Junior Mark Cross

added nine points off the

bench in the fourth quarter.

Sophomore Mario Lawrence

scored seven as a

starter. Sophomore Christian

Hooker added six off

the bench. Senior Chris

Edwards and junior Josiah

Bickhem scored five each

as starters. “We were hoping

we’d be a little more

competitive in the spread,”

Davis said. “They’re a very

good team. One of the elite

teams in the state. We’re

taking this as a measuring

stick. Attitude-wise, I

thought our guys were OK.

They could have imploded.

They didn’t. They stayed

the course. They competed

better in the second half,

came out a little bit more

ready to play.”

The Titans feature seven

returners: seniors Moore,

Edwards, Carlos Lewis,

Tyler Kohs and Chris Calhoun;

junior Jason Cook;

and sophomore Hooker.

They have nine players

new to varsity: senior Darin

Roberts; juniors Bickhem,

Cross, David Freyman,

Solomon Wilson, Jad Karajeh,

Devin Gavin and Elijah

Webster; and sophomore

Lawrence.

T-Bolts’ fouls costs first win against Knights

Brittany Kapa, Assistant Editor

Andrew came out strong,

held their opponent from

scoring for the first three

minutes of the game, but

ultimately their downfall

would be fouls, which cost

them the game.

Andrew’s learning curve

for the game and the team’s

inability to quickly recover

from that would play a key

factor in the result.

Richards High School

in Oak Lawn hosted the

Thanksgiving Classic, a

week-long tournament that

kicked off Monday, Nov.

21.

Andrew and Chicago

Christian faced off in the

tournament’s first game.

With strict officiating, Andrew

found themselves in

trouble early, but held the

lead through the middle of

the fourth quarter.

Starters like junior Mike

DeHaan and senior Joey

Krutilla got into trouble

early on in the first quarter,

both quickly getting two

fouls. Head coach Dave

Wilson was forced to go

deeper into the sub list than

he would have liked, and

eventually had two players

foul out before the end of

the game.

“It seemed like we were

fouling, and they weren’t,”

Wilson said. “That has a

ripple effect. It makes them

more aggressive and makes

us go deeper with our subs.”

Not being gifted with

size, the Thunderbolts relied

heavily on their shooters

and favored perimeter

shots. DeHaan – being the

tallest and checked in at 6

feet 6 inches – helped out

defensively but because of

the early fouls would be

limited on minutes in the

first half. However, Chicago

Christian gave the T-Bolts

plenty of space to work

with, and the game would

see some big 3-point ers

from junior Evan Yerkes,

who contributed four of the

team’s nine.

“I think for the first

half we played very

unselfish[ly],” Wilson said.

“We were making that extra

pass, getting really good

looks. I think we got caught

up in the trap of the 3-point

shot.”

“Unfortunately we’re not

gifted with size,” Yerkes

said. “This game we fell in

love with the ‘3 more.’ We

need to get in the lane, penetrate

and work outside in.”

Going into Andrew’s first

game of the season, Wilson

had some clear-cut goals for

the team, which they were

unable to achieve on Monday

night.

Wilson is optimistic that

his team will learn from

their mistakes, and with a

full lineup this week during

the tournament, they’ll have

plenty of practice time.

“As far as the game goes,

we were 9 of 32 from 3,

and our goal going into the

game was to make more

free throws than they attempted,”

Wilson said. “We

got destroyed in that stat.

We only attempted eight

free throws, and that is not a

equation for success.”

Chicago Christian would

ultimately have 42 percent

of their points come from

that free throw line, which

would cost Andrew the

game. Of 32 attempts, the

team made 24 with Knights

Aidan Crotty shooting 100

percent from the line in

eight attempts. The Knights’

Jack Ellison was another

player that proved hard to

get a handle on. Andrew’s

Feross Jreisat fouled out in

the fourth quarter; Ellison

took advantage and scored

six points off of two’s in the

fourth quarter alone, adding

15 points total for the night.

“I feel like the reason we

loss is everything we can

control,” DeHann said. “I

feel like we beat ourselves.

We need to be smarter with

the ball, more patient on offense,

and box out and play

better team defense.”

Wilson said the team will

take this loss, learn from

it and hopefully, fix those

costly mistakes going into

Tuesday’s matchup against

Perspectives Leadership

Academy. With no practice

in between, Wilson is confident

his team can come out

and be successful.

Going forward Wilson

said he expects Dwayne

“DJ” Gosa-Coleman to

add to the team’s overall

success this season along

with Krutilla, DeHaan and

Yerkes. Wilson said that

four will create a “strong

nucleus” for the team. He

added Gosa-Coleman is

a “very unselfish” player

with a “high motor.” Gosa-

Coleman put up seven

points against Chicago

Christian.

Wilson said Yerkes was

“one of the best shooters”

the team has seen in a

while; he contributed 14

points.

“The expectation is to

be consistently competitive,”

Wilson said about

the team’s future. “We’re

in a position now where the

guys getting the majority of

the minutes have a lot of experience;

they’re not new. If

we can find sort of a rhythm

offensively, I think we’ll be

a tough team to beat.”

Knights earn third win of season with victory over Andrew

Tim Carroll

Contributing Editor

From senior forward

Courteney Barnes’ win of

the opening tip until nearly

halfway through the second

quarter, it appeared as

though the Lincoln-Way

Central girls basketball team

might actually pitch a shutout

against its Andrew opponents.

In fact, it was a scoreless

game for both teams until

there was just three minutes

and 40 seconds left in

the first quarter, which was

when Knights senior guard

Colleen Barrett knocked

down a 3-pointer to open up

an 18-0 Central run that extended

until the 5:06 mark of

the second quarter.

After a significant comeback

from Andrew, the

Knights (3-1) earned a 41-30

victory over the Thunderbolts

(0-4).

Once Barrett hit her first,

she found her groove and

made two more 3-pointers

during the first quarter,

helping her team to a 13-0

lead at the end of the first

period.

It was a refreshing start

for the Knights, who, after

a very fast start in their first

game against Joliet Central,

struggled to get their offense

going early in their first two

games of their Lincoln-Way

Central Tournament, which

began Nov. 18 and concluded

Nov. 22.

From the early part of the

second period, it was more

offensive domination for the

Knights. But after Andrew

head coach Bobby Matz

called a timeout with about

six minutes left in the half,

the Thunderbolts flipped the

script and clawed their way

back into what was once

anything but a close game.

“I didn’t make any [adjustments],

I really didn’t,”

Matz said. “I would like

to say that I did something

magical, [but] I just challenged

the kids. I said, ‘This

is not who you are, this is not

who you want to be.”

But the Thunderbolts got

to a point where they did

have the confidence to win

the game against Central.

“As Andrew got their act

together more defensively,

they showed more [of our]

weaknesses, that we weren’t

running stuff very well,”

Campanile said.

After a first quarter and

part of a second in which

Central forced Andrew into

bad passes that resulted in

turnovers and traveling violations,

the Thunderbolts

cleaned up their passing and

found scoring lanes. Sophomore

guard Carolyn Krueger

(team-high seven points,

three rebounds) led the

charge, scoring four points

in the second quarter and

adding an assist.

With 5:36 left in the third

quarter, the Thunderbolts

had gone on an 18-4 run of

their own, drawing the score

to a very close 22-18. And

after Andrew got back within

striking distance, they stayed

within three possessions for

almost the entire rest of the

game.

Matz said his team gained

some confidence in the loss

and held onto its belief that

it could win until the group

ran out of gas.

It did not help that Andrew

had to play its final four minutes

of the game without one

of its best scorers, junior

Andrew guard Kayla Langowski looks to pass the ball at

the Nov. 21 SouthWest Suburban Conference game against

Lincoln-Way Central. Bob Klein/22nd Century Media

guard Kayla Langowski

(two points, two rebounds),

who injured herself trying

to foul a Knight and regain

possession in the fourth

quarter. Early indications

after the game were that she

had a broken wrist.

“It’ll impact us a lot,”

Matz said of the possibility

of losing Langowski. “She’s

a returning starter, a good

scorer for us, a good defender

for us.

“We gave up a couple of

offensive rebounds late,”

Matz said. “Actually, our defense

in the second half was

really good. It was offensive

rebounds that killed us.”

Andrew plagued with forfeits, injuries at meet

Frank Gogola

Freelance Reporter

Attitude and effort.

That’s the mantra ninthyear

Lincoln-Way East

wrestling coach Tyrone

Byrd preaches to his team.

And that’s what he felt his

team was lacking as East

went 1-1 against Andrew

and Oak Forest in its season

opener at the Oak Forest triangular

meet on Nov. 22.

“I felt a lot of our losses

throughout the lineup

were effort issues,” Byrd

said. “Some of our wins

I thought we could have

had better effort. What I’m

taking away from this is

that we have to have better

effort. I tell my kids all the

time there’s two things that

we have control over at all

times: our attitude and our

effort.

“You need to expect to

be tired in matches, and it’s

up to you what you do from

that point forward. You

can sit there and feel bad

for yourself and feel sorry

and pout and hang your

head and just accept you’re

tired, or you can work

through it.”

Sophomore Nick Mihajlovich

(182 pounds), junior

Chris Wilder (195) and junior

Chris Gromnicki (126)

were three who Byrd felt

showed appropriate attitude

and effort for the seasonopening

dual.

Mihajlovich won both of

his matches, 12-0 and by

pin. Wilder battled from

down 9-5 to win by pin,

then won by forfeit against

Andrew. Gromnicki won

7-2 before losing 16-0 to

Andrew’s Robbie Precin,

the reigning state runner-up.

“I was a little disappointed

in the majority of the

team’s attitude and effort

throughout the course of the

duel,” Byrd said. “I thought

some guys felt sorry

for themselves in tough

situations. The good news

is, out of all of this, is I still

think we have potential to

be a good team.”

East lost 38-32 to Oak

Forest and responded

with a 34-29 win over

Andrew despite missing

three wrestlers who were

sectional qualifiers last

season. Senior Dylan

Conway (170) didn’t make

weight. Senior Sam Diehl

(heavyweight) and junior

Devin O’Rourke (220) were

on rest until early December

after their football season

ended.

East got two wins by

forfeit against Oak Forest

and had the opportunity

to win heading into the

final match. Junior David

Ackmann got pinned in the

third period.

“I’m a performance guy

more than I am a result

guy,” Byrd said. “That first

duel, we could have won

that last match and won

that duel. I asked my kids

in our huddle after, ‘Do you

think I would have been

happy with the match if

we win that last match and

we win the dual?’ The kids

that know me looked at me

and said, ‘No.’ I think that’s

just a testament to what we

preach here and what we believe.”

Andrew was forced to

forfeit three weight class

in each duel and was down

18-0 before matches began.

Thunderbolts coach Mike

Pila said sophomore Luke

Gardner (126) and senior

Josh Gentile (152) were

out with injuries. Precin

filled Gardner’s spot at 126,

which left a forfeit at 120.

No one was listed at 195.

The forfeits hurt Andrew,

which also lost to Oak Forest,

42-33. The Thunder-

forfeit), and Migawa won

by pin and a 5-3 decision.

Girls Competitive Dance

Titans bring it at Andrew Invite, come in first

TPHS Dance Team

Overview

1. Division Changes

This season, the

dance team will see

new competition

in the Division 1A

change-up. Changes

in enrollment has

dropped the team

from the 2A division

to 1A.

2. Tough Competition

With the division

change comes new

teams that the

team must look out

for. Aurora Central

Catholic and Morris

high schools are on

the team’s mind this

season. Last year, the

Titans finished 13th

last season; this year,

they plan to make it

to the state.

3. Purple Hearts and

Minds

This season’s theme

will focus on the

struggle many people

around the work

face with Alzheimer’s

disease.

Brittany Kapa, Assistant Editor

Tinley Park High School’s

competitive dance team

is trying out a new theme

this year, and it’s one that

they’re hoping will make

a powerful impact with the

audience and the judges.

November is Alzheimer’s

Disease Awareness Month,

and the team is turning

that awareness into a competitive

piece. Head coach

Rebecca Haustein is working

with her team to create

a dance that will not only

tell a powerful story, but

that will also lead them into

the second day of the state

championships in January.

The team recently competed

in their first competition

Saturday, Nov. 19 and

walked away with the first

place title.

“We like to touch base on

different things that are going

on in society,” Haustein

said. “We want to show a

story and keep people interested

in our routines.

Last year, we did a militarythemed

dance with one of

the girls [portraying] a soldier

fighting.”

Haustein explained that

subject matters that are

close to the audience’s heart

will help them connect

more with the performance.

The Titan’s first place win

at the Andrew Invitational

gives the team an overall

boost of confidence early on

in the season. Since team’s

are not allowed to compete

“We like to touch base on different things that are

going on in society. We want to show a story, and

keep people interested in our routines.”

Rebecca Haustein —Titans varsity dance coach, on her team’s performances

until November, there is not

a lot of time in the season to

make major corrections to a

performance.

The Titans beat out three

other teams at the invitational

for the top spot,

and while it may not seem

like a big win to most, it is

one that gives the Titan’s

hope for the remainder of

the season. Last year, the

team finished 13th in state,

and being in a new division

this season adds a bit

of a learning curve for the

team.

Early feedback from

the judges clarified the

dance’s intent. The message

to the audience did not

come through as clearly

as Haustein would have

liked, but it is something

her team is more than

willing to work on. London

Grammar’s “Wasting My

Young Years” provides the

somber background music

for the team’s piece. The

lead singer’s voice adds to

the hauntingly beautiful

melody that the Titan’s

dance to.

Senior Katelyn Knoll

and her sister Megan,

a sophomore, are the

dance’s main characters.

The two are to be dressed

in purple, a color used to

symbolize Alzheimer’s.

The dance, itself, centers

on a relationship between a

mother and her daughter.

The mother is trying

to stave off the effect the

disease is having on her and

trying to stay in the present

with her daughter. Katelyn

and Megan play the motherand-daughter

duo. The rest

of the dance team is to be

dressed in black, which

represents what Haustein

calls the “dark memories.”

Morgan, Katelyn’s

younger sister and Megan’s

twin, is also a member of

the team and takes part as

one of the “dark memories.”

The Knoll sisters have

experience in dancing ballet,

tap, hip hop and pointe

and were prepared to take

on the Haustein’s routine.

Katelyn admitted that she

does not have a personal

connection with the theme,

but she is pulling from her

own understanding of what

it is like to move on in her

own life.

The division shift this

season means that the team

is unfamiliar with their

competition. Haustein said

she is to keep a close eye on

Aurora Central Catholic and

Morris Community high

schools as the season progresses.

Aurora took fourth

in state last year, and Morris

finished second.

Performances are scored

on a 100-point scale. Finishing

with a score in the

higher 70’s at the Andrew

Invite was not ideal, but is

a good starting point for

Haustein.

It is early in the season,

and Haustein is confident

that with practice her team

will not only get better with

their techniques but will

clarify the dance to their audience.

The judges’ feedback

from the Andrew Invitational

win will help determine

where the team goes

from here. Technical skill,

difficulty level, formations,

music and overall effect are

all categories that the judges

use to dole out points. The

biggest takeaway from the

judges’ critique was to make

the overall dance clearer to

the audience, which means

putting in additional work

to make sure everything is

perfect.

“All teams struggle with

getting synced together,”

Haustein said. “I believe

that being completely spot

-on together, providing the

judges with facial [expressions]

and trying to portray

our theme will be the most

challenging for us.”

Katelyn and teammate

Sydney Keiner shared the

relief of coming out of their

first competition successful.

“Coming in first felt like

a big weight was lifted off

our shoulders,” Keiner, a

senior, said. “Since our

team had such a successful

season last year, we really

feel the pressure to do well

this competition season.”

The Titan’s spent the afternoon

of Nov. 22, following

the competition watching

their performance over;

taking the judges comments

to heart; and brainstorming

ways in which the team

could improve overall. The

team is currently preparing

for their Dec. 3 competition

at Eisenhower High School,

and they will be joined by

15 other teams.

“I think [this season] it’s

going to be a little harder,”

Katelyn said. “We’re not

used to the teams we’re

competing against. I’m excited

for the rest of the season

to play out.”

Listen Up

“I feel like the reason we loss is everything we can control. I

feel like we beat ourselves. We need to be smarter with the

ball, more patient on offense, and box out and play better team

defense.”

at the Thanksgiving Tip-Off Classic held at Richards High School.
