COMMUNITY >> NILES CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

Director looking to grow Chamber Alicia Bermes glad to be back ‘home’ in northern suburbs By Jen Shea For The Bugle @NilesBugle nweditor@buglenewspapers.com

The Niles Chamber of Commerce has a new executive director. Northbrook native Alicia Bermes took over this month, and she is working with the Chamber’s various committees to boost its membership.

“I’ve come back to the North suburbs,” said Bermes, who was executive director at the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce before she came to Niles. “The Village is wonderful to work with. I think there’s tons of potential for businesses.” Bermes has a B.A. in psychology and an M.A. in developmental psychology from Loyola Univer-

sity. While her two children have moved away from the Chicago area, she said she’s glad to work in a community close to where she grew up. “I believe we’ll have a very productive relationship,” Board of Directors President Jeff Curry said. “She has a clear vision of where we hope to take the Niles Chamber.” Bermes said she’s been impressed by the Chamber’s range of committees and events. She listed the recent Night of Roses

Police officers to stake out nearly 300 Dunkin’ Donuts On May 18 area police officers again taking to rooftops to raise funds for Illinois Special Olympics For the 16th year in a row, law enforcement officers from throughout the state will rise to the occasion and support Special Olympics Illinois atop nearly 300 Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops on Friday, May 18, beginning at 5 a.m. until noon. Officers hope to top last year’s donation total of more than $700,000 from 272 rooftops as they go to new heights to raise awareness and donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Illinois. Special Olympics athletes and their families and representatives from Chicago’s major sports teams are among the special guests who will join police officers and show their support. In honor of the Special Olympics athletes and law enforcement participating in the rooftop event, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate $15,000 to the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run. In addition, each guest who visits a Cop on a Rooftop location that day and makes a donation to the Torch Run will receive a free donut coupon. Guests donating at least $10 will receive a Law En-

forcement Torch Run travel mug (while supplies last) and a coupon for free medium coffee. Other items, such as Torch Run T-shirts and raffle tickets, will be sold for various donation amounts. Additional activities will vary by Dunkin’ Donuts location. Dunkin’ Donuts also has created a special glazed red and white donut ring depicting Special Olympics Illinois colors. The donut, called “The Champion,” will be available at Dunkin’ Donuts locations in Chicago and suburbs May 18. Detective Robbie Peterson of the West Chicago Police Department says “Cop on a Rooftop is important because it puts the athletes of Special Olympics in the forefront that day across the state of Illinois and gives us, law enforcement officers, an opportunity to interact with our community in a positive manner. My involvement with Special Olympics is truly an honor and another

chance to uphold the oath I took when I was hired....to protect and serve.” Special Olympics Athlete Becky Cavanagh of Clarendon Hills adds,” Eating donuts is my favorite part of Cop on a Rooftop. Then I like talking to Detective Robbie and all the nice people who donate.” LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENTS WILL BE AT THE FOLLOWING DUNKIN’ DONUTS: • 7039 W Dempster St Niles • 7235 N. Caldwell Niles • 7525 N Harlem Ave • 8080 N Milwaukee Ave Niles • 5843 Dempster St Morton Grove • 1129 W Touhy Ave Park Ridge • 2606 Dempster St Park Ridge • 742 W Higgins Rd Park Ridge

awards ceremony and an upcoming golf outing as examples. “I’ve been spending a lot of time meeting our volunteers and our committee chairs,” she said. “We’re also re-engaging our membership committee.” Chamber members get sponsorship opportunities, networking opportunities and a mention on the Chamber’s website, among other benefits. “We are planning to create a couple of new committees as well as recruit some new members to

existing committees,” Curry said. They’re also working on a website update and a more active social media presence. Bermes wants to increase the variety of benefits for members to get more of them involved in Chamber activities. “Membership benefits are one of our top priorities right now,” she said. The next committee meeting is June 7, so Bermes will soon have a chance to help the Chamber plan more events throughout Niles.

RESURRECTION HALL OF FAME

Park Ridge residents honored by RE

Resurrection alumnae were recently inducted into the Resurrection Wall of Honor. Notable alumnae were honored with the Blessed Celine Award, which is awarded to Resurrection alumnae who exemplify the life values of Blessed Celine, the founder of the Sisters of the Resurrection. The recipients are accomplished in their fields of endeavor and, like Blessed Celine, work toward the advancement of women in society and act as positive Christian role models for young women. The 2018 Blessed Celine recipients are Resurrection alumnae Caroline Hopkinson ‘07 (Park Ridge) (Social Worker and former Director of Youth Ministry at St. Paul of the Cross Parish); Vanessa Torres ‘03 (Communications Director at The Miracle Center); Tricia Moll ‘86 (Senior Franchise Field Vice President at Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc.); and Bruna Borrini Morrison ‘83 and Bianca Borrini Henniges ‘74 (Owners of Dino’s Pizza and Italian Restaurant ). The Athletic Hall of Fame Award recognizes individuals from the Resurrection Athletic community who have participated in sports or contributed to the Resurrection College Prep Athletic Program. Athletes inducted into the Hall of Fame have demonstrated outstanding athletic accomplishments, leadership or contributions. The 2018 Athletic Hall of Fame inductees are Resurrection Coach Fred Angelini (Park Ridge) (softball and cross country), Maggie Cunningham Aldworth ‘97 (gymnastics), Hana Somogyi Steil ‘09 (softball), Sara Somogyi Spencer ‘05 (softball), and Tara Babich Lange ‘96 (basketball and softball). Caroline Hopkinson ‘07 states that the values of the “golden rule” and faith were instilled in her at a young age by her family and her grammar school, St. Paul of the Cross. Resurrection College Prep was a perfect fit for high school and her senior Kairos retreat began to reveal her career passion. At Marquette University she pursued a degree in Political Science and Economics and even spent time in Washington D.C. as part of the Les Aspin Program where she worked on Capital Hill for the House of Representatives. After college, Caroline began

working for a Catholic publishing company writing articles about people who lived out their true vocation. During her time with Vision Vocation, she participated in a week-long service trip with the Sisters of St. Joseph. It was while on that trip she realized she needed to make a change which soon led her to become the Director of Youth Ministry at St. Paul of the Cross. Here Caroline began to see faith in action through service. “I knew teens in my community needed experiences to see the world differently, to feel challenged to make a difference in the lives of others.” Over the course of five years, Caroline took 12 service trips across the U.S. working with many humanitarian organizations. Her teen service group accumulated over 12,000 hours of service in five years. Her work with teenagers led Caroline to pursue a Masters in Social Work, which she received in May 2017. Caroline currently works as a Social Worker at Raymond Ellis Elementary School in Round Lake. She also serves on the Resurrection College Prep High School Development Committee and has been an active alumna, participating in the annual Alumnae Career Days. Caroline said she is humbled to receive the Blessed Celine Award and honored to be recognized by the Resurrection community for her work in ministry and service to others. “Compassion is not sympathy. Compassion is mercy. It is a commitment to take responsibility for the suffering of others.” Fred Angelini is a graduate of Notre Dame College Prep where he played baseball and soccer, was the Vice President of the Cross & Anchor Club, a member of the Pep Club and a participant in the drama program. Fred played baseball at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and earned a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree in Marketing in 1980. Fred’s love of coaching is evident. He has coached baseball, softball, basketball, and football at Mary, Seat of Wisdom School, and for the Park Ridge Park District youth programs. Fred is on the board of directors of Park Ridge Baseball-Softball, and he served a four-year term as a commissioner for the Park Ridge Park District. In 2004 Fred began coaching at Res-

urrection as a volunteer assistant with the freshmen softball team. In the fall of 2004, he joined the cross country coaching staff as a volunteer. He moved into the roles of JV Head Coach and Assistant Varsity Softball Coach and was a member of the coaching staff of the 2007 IHSA Elite 8 Softball Team. Fred is currently the head Varsity Softball Coach and the head Coach of the Cross Country team. In 2011 he initiated the Resurrec-

tion Junior Bandit Cross Country Invite, which draws hundreds of 5th through 8th grade students to the Resurrection campus. He has served as Men’s Club Moderator and on various school committees and as the Athletic Booster Club President and Vice President. Fred and his wife Kathy were the first Resurrection Charity and Truth Gala chair couple and Fred has been the auctioneer at the Gala Dinner ever since. He is always available to assist at any

school function. The Angelini family lives in Park Ridge and Fred and Kathy have three adult children: Anthony (2004 graduate of Notre Dame College Prep), Deanna (2007 Resurrection alumna), and Katherine (Kat) (2013 Resurrection alumna). Fred is the sales manager for Atlas Saw & Tool, LLC. He can be found regularly at most Notre Dame College Prep football games grilling burgers on the sidelines or at Resurrection cheering on the Bandits.

Great Migration brought more than 500,000 to Illinois Victory Bell can still remember the night when he boarded the Illinois Central Railroad BY CHUCK SWEENY OF THE ROCKFORD REGISTER STAR Victory Bell can still remember the night when he boarded the Illinois Central Railroad’s City of New Orleans in Durant, Mississippi, bound for Chicago, then changing trains and ending up in Rockford. It was 1945, at the height of the Jim Crow apartheid in Dixie that purposely kept blacks poor with few rights. Bell, his mother and siblings were headed north to join his father, who had already moved north to get a factory job. “We had been sharecroppers,” the 83-year old Bell remembers working near Durant, 60 miles north of Jackson. The family had eked out a living, but opportunities for advancement just were not there for black folks. “I remember it was in the middle of the night when we boarded the train. We had to sit in the black section. When we got to Illinois, the conductor said we could sit anywhere we liked on the train,” Bell said, “and we no longer had to say ‘sir ‘or ‘ma’am’ to white people, which was new to us.” His uncle and father had come to Rockford in 1943 and 1944 to get jobs that paid better than sharecropping. “The machine tool businesses were very aggressive in hiring at that time, and people were able to come to Illinois and get jobs at various machine companies and make a decent salary,” Bell said. Illinois’ manufacturing industries were working around the clock to turn out planes, tanks, guns and bullets for the armed forces during World War II. The state’s manufacturers continued to boom after the war. Bell is a living embodiment of The Great Migration, the movement from 1916 to 1970 of 6 million to 7 million black Americans from the states of the old Confederacy to the North. More than 500,000 came to Illinois.

They were fleeing legal oppression. They were looking for better lives for their families, and for the rights to vote, to participate in their government, to serve on juries — in other words, to exercise all their rights as U.S. citizens. Yes, these freedoms had been won in the Civil War, but when Reconstruction ended in 1877 and the U.S. Army withdrew from its occupation of the former rebel states, white Democrats reasserted their total control and suppression of the “freedmen,” as slaves were called after the war. From 1900 through the 1920s, whites erected monuments throughout the South in honor of rebel leaders to demonstrate in granite and metal who was back in charge. The Great Migration’s beginnings also coincided with World War I, when immigration from Europe slowed to a trickle and factories were short of workers. Migration to the North slowed during the Great Depression of the 1930s but picked up again during World War II and in post-war years when highways were better and cars were relatively cheap. Although prejudice was not absent in northern Illinois, it wasn’t codified into state laws that were sometimes enforced by night riders in hoods carrying torches. “When I came to Rockford I was 7 or 8 years old. I started school that same year and I had a great homeroom teacher, Mrs. Burns,” Bell said.

Bell had never been to an integrated school before because they did not exist under the mandated segregation of Mississippi. “Mrs. Burns was the kindest person and made sure I was comfortable in the school. She never showed prejudice. She had a clear understanding of how to help all the kids learn.” Bell learned well. He got a job as a janitor with the Illinois Bell Telephone Co. and advanced to lineman, installer and then supervisor. Active in Democratic Party politics, Bell became Rockford’s first black alderman in 1971, a post he held for more than 30 years before he retired. “We knew there was a different standard for blacks here, but Illinois was not as openly prejudiced. Mississippi was just a terrible, terrible place to be in if you were black,” Bell said. “We were kept out of school until November to pick cotton.” Looking back, Bell said that boarding that train so many years ago “was the best thing we could have ever done.” Chuck Sweeney of the Rockford Register Star can be reached at csweeny@rrstar.com.

TRADITION Niles West’s Sam Galanopoulos verbally commits to play basketball at Loyola University Chicago

BY BOB NARANG For the Bugle www.buglenewspapers.com

Niles West junior point guard Sam Galanopoulos called it a natural fit from the outset. But Galanopoulos preferred to bide her time in picking a college. With offers from Loyola, Northern Illinois, Western Michigan and Illinois State, the 5-foot-8 Galanopoulos leaned heavily from the outset toward committing to Loyola. Her father, mother and uncle all attended Loyola. On April 30, Galanopoulos sealed the deal by orally committing to attend Loyola. The youngest of four siblings – all three currently play sports in college – Galanopoulos is continuing the family’s tradition. “Family is really important to me,” she said. “It’s going to be an honor to represent my school at a well-known university where I have legacy. I want to make a name for myself and represent my family and school because I owe every-

thing to them, just from watching my older siblings play and how to be a good person, play the game right and basically try and make a name for myself. “I was always at all of their games...I was always running onto the court, just the annoying kid shooting or dribbling between timeouts or quarters or at halftime.” Niles West girls coach Kyle Braheny recalls watching Sam playing basketball during her childhood years when he was coaching her two older brothers, Tommy and Matt, as the sophomore coach at Niles West. “I’ve known Sam for a while and then really got to know her well last year coaching her,” he said. “I don’t know a single person who has the work ethic she has, in whatever aspect of basketball or weight training, she doesn’t take a day off. She’s trying to do the best, finding a way to get better. It’s contagious. Several girls are following her lead and SEE LOYOLA PAGE 7

OAKTON

Bukielski headed to NJCAA Division-II Championships Oakton Community College golfer Stephen Bukielski (Niles, Schaumburg High School) is twofor-two when it comes to qualifying for one of the biggest stages for college golf. Bukielski will be competing at the 2018 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II Men’s Golf Championship, May 21-24, at the Glenlakes Golf Club in Foley, Alabama. Last year at nationals, he placed 77th out of 143 golfers in Mesa, Arizona. “Competing at nationals last year was jittery for me,” Bukielski says. “Now that I’ve already competed at such a high level, I’ll be less stressed and able to take my game up a notch.” Bukielski will be contending against more than 100 junior college golfers from around the nation at the par-72 6,912-yard golf course that features strategic mounding, extensive bunkering LOYOLA FROM PAGE 5 trying to step up and match her intensity and work ethic. The potential for her at Loyola is through the roof. I’m excited to see her play at the next level.” As a junior, Galanopoulos had a breakout season. She averaged 14.5 points, 4.8 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 2.0 steals. She was a member of the IBCA Class 3A/4A Fourth Team and named first-team Voyager Media All-Area. Braheny said he ran the offense through Galanopoulos. She led the team in points, as-

and rippling fairways and greens. “Consistent is the best way to describe Steve’s golf game,” Louis Walker, Oakton men’s golf coach says. “He may not hit it the farthest off the tee, but he gets on the fairway constantly. Steve is mentally and physically prepared. Competing in a tournament like this is huge pressure, but he’s already been to nationals before, which gives him a huge advantage over many of the other competitors.” However, Walker says the tournament poses certain challenges: “Any course can be tough if you haven’t played on it before. Golf is unlike any other sport because you compete against yourself and there’s no footage to watch like there is in basketball or football.” To get ready for the four-day tournament, Bukielski and the other competitors will have two practice rounds to familiarize

themselves with the course. “Glenlakes Golf Club is one of the premier golf courses in the nation,” Walker says. “The air quality there is great, being so close to the Gulf of Mexico. The balls should be able to travel farther than when the tournament was held in humid Arizona last year.” Since the golf season ended last fall, Bukielski has been playing as much as possible and is confident about his chances. “For the last few months I’ve been perfecting my swing and especially working on my putting,” he says. “I’m a level-headed person, and I don’t get down when I make a mistake. I’m excited about having another opportunity at nationals and hoping to improve on last year’s performance by medaling.”

sists and was second in rebounds. “Sam’s a very tenacious defender, just like the rest of her family,” he said. “She’s more offensive minded and skilled than her brothers, but all family trait of working hard and doing the right things and never taking a play off and all have same quality of being a tremendous leader on the court. Sam, though, has a tremendous offensive skill set. Her father, Mike, said Sam was a natural in basketball, dating back to her middle schools years. “Sam always liked basketball and worked very hard,” he said. “She was fortunate to have her

older siblings carry her through Niles West and now it’s her time.” Galanopoulos said she’s relieved that the recruiting process is over, allowing her to concentrate on grinding in the offseason to be a better player in her senior season. “I’m definitely less stressed because all the coaches were calling, I was visiting a lot of places and I didn’t know when I was going to commit,” she said. “It was basically a big bundle of stress figuring out all logistics, where to go, if my family could be at my games, the position I would play at school and other things.”

First, lay a solid financial foundation DEAR DAVE, When is it okay to have a little fun, and buy things you want, when you’re following the Baby Steps plan? KAITLIN DEAR KAITLIN, The time for a little fun is after you’ve completed the first three Baby Steps. Baby Step 1 is saving $1,000 for a beginner emergency fund. Baby Step 2 is paying off all debt, except for your home. And Baby Step 3 means you go back and add to your emergency fund until you have three to six months of expenses set aside. Once you’re debt-free except for your home — and you have your emergency fund completed — you’ve laid a solid, financial foundation for your life. That’s when you can have a little fun and spend some mon-

ey on a vacation, new furniture, or something like that. Children think about their immediate wants and do what feels good. Adults, on the other hand, devise smart, logical plans, and stick to them. I want you to have a great life, but you have to put in some hard work and say “no” to yourself sometimes in order to attain that great life! —DAVE DEAR DAVE, I’ll be receiving my income tax refund soon. It will be enough to completely pay off my two smallest debts, or get my starter emergency fund of $1,000 for Baby Step 1 in place. What should I do?

the Baby Steps, and begin gaining control of your finances. But we call the beginner’s emergency fund Baby Step 1 for a reason. Bad things can happen while you’re working to get out of debt. That’s why I want people to get a little money set aside before they start Baby Step 2, which is the debt snowball. What if the alternator on your car goes out, or your refrigerator dies? Life happens, and things go wrong. When this kind of stuff pops up, and you don’t have any money set aside, you’re likely to quit the plan and wind up going even deeper into debt. I know you want to get out of debt. I want you to get out of debt, too. But I want you to stick with the plan, and actually get out of debt, instead of falling off the wagon the first time you hit a bump in the road! —DAVE * Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions.
