USA Skate Center closes doors Fans bid farewell to local roller rink By Laura Katauskas staff reporter

katauskas@buglenewspapers.com @lkatauskas

An outlet for pure clean fun, the place for birthday parties and first dates, the USA Skate Center is closing its doors. Home to Romeoville at 1303 Naperville Drive, the roller rink was open in 1973, changing ownership overtime but not its local audience. The current owners, Steve and Donna Turner recently sold the rink and held their last skate

March 8. A message on their Facebook page reads: “We would like to thank everyone for supporting USA Skate Center in the years we have owned it. We are sorry that we will not be here with the family of friends we have made over the years. We will miss everyone. Thanks again for the great times we have had! From our family to yours.” And so to were hundreds of fond memories posted from visitors young and old. “It’s truly sad that the kids won’t have a place to go to skate anymore,” said one visitor. “I have skated there everyday in the 80’s worked there as a DJ , and have to say my heart hurts that Mainstreet

USA as I know it won’t be there anymore. Wish I had that type of money to buy it. Is a wonderful place for kids to go.” And from another avid skater: “I have skated at your rink since it opened. Brought my young kids, then grandkids, my third grade students and lots of friends over the years. I have skated through a divorce, a child custody battle. a cancer diagnosis for my mother and the night she died I was at the roller rink after the priest helped us say goodbye. Your roller rink saved my life and gave my family a wonderful place to grow up. Thank you!” The rink was reportedly sold to an auto body shop which will take over the space.

Rep. Natalie Manley recognizes November as Veterans Appreciation Month To acknowledge the role veterans have in our state and country, state Rep. Natalie Manley, D-Joliet, passed a resolution declaring November as Veterans Appreciation Month in Illinois. “The purpose of this resolution is to raise awareness and remind residents of Illinois on what our veterans have done for us,” said Manley. “Even though we celebrate Veterans Day, I feel that one day is not enough to fully

acknowledge and appreciate what they have done for our state and country.” Manley’s resolution, House Resolution 59, was adopted on March 3 on the House Floor after unanimously passing through the Veterans’ Affairs Committee. November was chosen as the month to celebrate to coincide with Veterans Day, which is November 11 of every year. “Some of our veterans face serious physical and mental

health conditions, while also trying to live as normal a life as possible,” Manley added. “Veterans Appreciation Month is meant to teach people of what exactly they go through; however, I think it is extremely important that people always remember the sacrifices they have made for us.” For more information, please contact Manley’s full-time constituent service office at (815) 725-2741 or e-mail repmanley@ gmail.com.

cover story

Rasmussen College offers tips and advice for job seekers Confidence, company knowledge are important By Laura Katauskas staff reporter

katauskas@buglenewspapers.com @lkatauskas

With the unemployment rate at 5.5 percent in Will County alone and Illinois ranking as one of the highest states for job loss, the market for jobs is likely flooded with candidates. Rasmussen College recently took a look at what both attracts and offends the average employer, hoping to offer a little incentive for those scouring the want ads. Rasmussen College recently held a free Community Career Fair at the Clarion Hotel & Convention Center in Joliet and another in Aurora. The event was designed to help community members improve their job-seeking skills as well as network with local employers that are hiring. Romeoville/Joliet Campus Career Services Advisor Jyoti Rao said they wanted to get beyond what

should be well known, dressing professionally and the well-written resume. Prior to the fair, the college surveyed participating employers, some 260, on what on was the most important thing a job-seeker can do to impress them at a networking event as well as the most offensive mistakes job-seekers make. Lo and behold dressing professional and having a wellwritten resume top off the list of must haves; but also standing out is a candidate’s confidence level and knowledge about the company. Employers advise job seekers to do their homework before applying for a job and practice their speeches. Poor hygiene and poor dress ranked high on the list of things not to do as well. Apparently the advice is needed because one attendee and Rasmussen alum, Iliana Jacobo, said she was disappointed and surprised to see that not many people took the event as seriously. “I had received previous emails from my Rasmussen College, the

college I graduated from in 2013 advising to dress professionally and take resumes on the day of the event,” said Jacobo. “I was disappointed to see not everyone was dressed professionally and were dressed more casual. I honestly thought it was going to be a business professional environment not a casual event where everyone was able to attend.” The good news is the most important steps a job-seeker can take are completely within their control, but the main message Rao said stands out is that first impressions really do count. “We try to tell our students and community members, reinforcing that first impressions can make a lasting impression and often times can make or break your interview and whether or not you get a call back,” said Rao. Rao continues that job seekers should have a strategic plan and focus on their sales pitch. This was also a component of the event that was new—a chance for a round table discussion and mock interviews. For some, once they’ve stepped out of the interview, no more feedback is given and the majority of times, if a rejection comes, the likely reason is only stated as “we decided to go another way.” Rao said this experience at the job fair was critical, offering those in attendance a chance for a critique of their performance. “My experience at the career fair was very successful,” said May Mondesir. “The event provided me with important face time with dozens of companies that are actively looking for candidates. The event was an insight into which companies in the area are hiring and what kinds of positions they have to offer. I think that the most helpful component of the event was that I learned about what recruiters are expected, and also gained a greater sense of self confidence.” For a list of career fair events, visit www.Rasmussen.edu/careerfair.

Signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs Some Joliet councilmembers balked big time when they heard they would have to come up with more than $360,000 for a new scoreboard at Silver Cross Field instead of the $150,000 they budgeted. They talked about a lot of different options, from letting it go another year to lending themselves the remainder and paying themselves back with interest next year. Councilman Terry Morris had the most interesting thought: “Maybe we should call Mr. (Ed) Czerkies and see if he wants to donate another sign,” Morris said of the donor of the controversial marquee with the prominent memorial to his parents. Czerkies subsequently pulled his donation after all the hue and cry. Morris later said he was serious, but added that maybe Czerkies would want a sponsorship that would clash with the Silver Cross Field sponsorship.

And please do the dishes, Sweetie Speaker of Silver Cross Field, councilmen Larry Hug and Jim McFarland said during their comments at the end of the March 3 meeting they want the city to look into selling the facility to get it “off the backs of taxpayers.” Councilwoman Bettye Gavin’s parting remarks were more fitting for a message on the Silver Cross scoreboard: “Today is my 31st wedding anniversary,” Gavin said. After thanking her husband for that many years of love and devotion, she also thanked him for understanding when council meetings fall on important dates. “He’s probably sitting home

eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich,” she said.

Stepping up to the plate Even if spring isn’t quite in the air, you can tell the return of professional baseball – or what the Chicago area has -- is just around the corner. County Board Member Ray Tuminello, R-New Lenox, was decked out in his White Sox tie at the March 5 Executive Committee meeting, while colleague Mark Ferry, D-Plainfield, wore his Cubs shirt. “Better stay away from Mark,” Democratic Caucus Chair Herb Brooks warned Tuminello. Just before the meeting, a half dozen or so board members huddled up around Board Speaker Jim Moustis at the dais, whispering. When they finally broke, Coach Moustis said they were just talking about how the Cubs and Sox will do this year. “They’ll both have pretty good teams,” Moustis said. Guess the media will have to be better at stealing signs. On a mission The Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce and industry wants to become the largest chamber in Illinois other than Chicago, the No. 1 that can’t be beat. “I believe we need to pass Naperville up,” said Don Fisher, the chamber’s chairman. So the group will be recruiting new members between June and September. “We’re the city of champions,” Fisher said. “We’re a strong business community, and we want to show Joliet what we are all about.”

Condolences To the family of Tom Giganti, 78, who passed away March 1. An active member of the community, including work with the Citizens Police Academy Alumni of Romeoville and as the crossing guard at Irene King Elementary School, he was a wonderful man with a beautiful soul who is going to be missed by so many people.

Congrats To Romeoville Police Chief “Magic” Mark Turvey, MVP of the annual TriCounty Special Recreation Association basketball game. Turvey played great, even though he was taken down twice, said Village Manager Steve Gulden.

They said … “You can’t arrest your way out of this.” – Dr. Kathleen Burke of Strategic Prevention, telling the Will County Board’s Public Health and Safety Committee prevention is crucial in addressing the heroin crisis. “We have to decide what we want to be … a Park District, or a Forest Preserve.” – Suzanne Hart, president of the Forest Preserve District of Will County during an Operations Committee meeting where staff recommended cutting some popular events that sap their resources. “That piggy needs to wear underwear! – A fourth-grader visiting the Will County Farm Bureau’s Ag Expo March 3 when he noticed an obviously male pig.

campaigns, but they should know sometimes people pay more attention to a whisper of truth than a bellowing lie. While most people may not know whether a candidate is lying, or at least stretching the truth, they do know what their streets look like. They do know, or should, how good their schools are or where they are lacking. They know who they can call in their towns or school districts if they need something, or should. It’s usually all on a website … if you haven’t met your particular representative personally. But see, that’s part of the problem. By the time we get to the elections, many voters who haven’t paid attention for the past two, four or six years have to cram for the test. Those who feel disenfranchised will be looking for messages from candidates or opponents that say “tax hike,” “Increased spending,” “Bad snow removal,” etc., without knowing the whole story. It’s like the “Family Guy” episode where Lois wins an election by just repeating “Nine Eleven” even though her race had nothing to do with the tragedy. Really. Are we that gullible? Some candidates think so. Others hope we aren’t watching at all. For years and years, I asked you – implored you—to vote. And I still do. But for Pete’s sake, ask some questions.

Drew Peterson waives right to preliminary hearing Plans still on track for July trial

Drew Peterson’s courtappointed attorney, Lucas Liefer, speaks during a brief news conference outside the Randolph County Courthouse. (PHOTOS COURTESY OF PETE SPITLER/ HERALD TRIBUNE)

Back in court on Tuesday on murder-for-hire charges, Drew Peterson waived his right to a preliminary hearing in front of Judge Richard A. Brown and entered a plea of not guilty at the Randolph County Courthouse. “From the prosecution’s standpoint, the investigation is nearly complete,” said Randolph County State’s Attorney Jeremy Walker during the hearing. Walker said the state will issue a subpoena to the Department of Corrections for all call logs and other information as it pertains to the master file of “Individual A,” the identity of whom is filed under seal at the Circuit Clerk’s office. “We’re doing everything we can to keep his identity secret to the public,” Walker said in a phone interview with the Herald Tribune after the hearing. Wearing a white shirt with black pants and sporting a closecropped haircut and black, thick-

framed glasses, Peterson, 61, was not handcuffed as he sat next to his court-appointed attorney, Lucas Liefer out of the Red Bud law firm Cooper and Liefer. Peterson occasionally glanced at the jury box, which was occupied by roughly a dozen members of the local and state media. Cassandra Cales, who is the sister of Peterson’s missing fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, also attended the hearing.

Forest Preserve officials discussing cutting popular events to save money, wear on trails By nick reiher

managing editor

nreiher@buglenewspapers.com @JolietILNews

Popular annual forest preservebased events such as “Ride the Rock” family bicycle ride and the “Howloween Hoopla” could disappear in 2016 under a budgetcutting plan offered by staff of the Forest Preserve District of Will County. Staff and some of the commissioners also would like to limit the number of non-district special events held in the preserves by non-profit groups because the number and size of the events is

beginning to sap district resources. Ralph Schultz, the district’s director of Planning and Operations, and John Gerl, director of Administration and Finance, presented specifics of the plan to members of the district board’s Operations Committee March 4. During its capital expansion programs starting in the late 1990s, the district often had events to herald a new trail or facility. Those were thought to be onetime events, Schultz and Gerl said, but in some cases, staff was asked to repeat and expand them. They explained at the February meeting the district can no longer

Peterson is due back in court for a case management conference on April 14 at 10 a.m. Both Walker, who is co-prosecuting the case with the Attorney General’s office, and Liefer, have agreed to attempt to try the case during the county’s July jury availability. Available weeks are July 13 and 20. “Everyone is of the belief and the intent that we’ll try this case in July,” Walker said during the phone interview. “I can’t

• •

In his proposal, Schultz recommended: No more than two special events per trail or per preserve per month. One special event per organization per year. He noted one non-forprofit had six events last year. A 500-person limit on events. Events with more than 300 people would need at least one district police officer.

guarantee it will happen, but it is more than possible.” Court documents allege Peterson requested Individual A to find a person to kill Will County State’s Attorney Jim Glasgow, who prosecuted Peterson’s original murder trial, in exchange for payment. “I don’t want to comment specifically about this case, but generally speaking, when someone is listed in the charging documents, it’s pretty much guaranteed they’re going to have to testify,” Walker said in the phone interview, when asked if Individual A could be called to testify during the trial. The state filed a discovery protective order on Tuesday seeking to prevent the defense counsel from releasing “sensitive information” to the public or the media that may jeopardize the health and safety of “Individual A,” as well as future investigations. “We didn’t want this case tried before it got to a jury,” said Liefer in a brief news conference held after the hearing. Liefer said he believes Peterson will get a fair trial in Randolph County. “I do, absolutely,” he said. “It’s Randolph County. I’ve never

had a problem with a fair trial in Randolph County.” The Randolph County State’s Attorney’s Office also filed a notice of the use of an eavesdropping device in regard to Peterson. The eavesdropping device transaction states an application for judicial authorization of its use was approved on October 23, 2014 for a period of time between October 20, 2014, and November 23, 2014. On Nov. 20, an extension was approved to use the device until Dec. 22. “During the time periods described above, an eavesdropping device was used to overhear and record various conversations,” the notice stated. Liefer said during the news conference that he has not gotten the discovery of that material yet. “I know as much as everybody else knows and what Drew and I have discussed,” he said. “That’s basically all I can say.” Walker said in the phone interview that the defense will receive the discovery by the end of the week. “The next immediate step would be tendering all the evidence to

This year, Schultz said, they are recommending cutting only the “Cruise the Creek” event scheduled for fall. The “Music at McKinley” event could continue, they said, if the fireworks were eliminated and the number of cars for the car show were reduced and capped. In 2016, they recommended eliminating Ride the Rock, the 16-mile family bike ride that was designed to promote the 16-mile loop trail formed by the Rock Run, Joliet Junction and I&M Canal trails. Initially, the event drew 400 to 500 participants eight or nine years ago, but now, there are around 2,000. The event requires 27 police officers to handle traffic control throughout Joliet, Rockdale and Crest Hill, they said. And since the District doesn’t have that many, they have to ask

for police help from those towns. They receive $18,000 in sponsorships for the event, they said, but it still costs the District nearly $60,000. They also recommended eliminating the “Howloween Hoopla” event at Whalon Lake Dog Park in Naperville in favor of the doggie Easter Egg Hunt at Hammel Woods in Shorewood. The difference there, they said, is that the District sponsors “Howloween Hoopla,” while Shorewood HUGS sponsors the Easter Egg Hunt. The third event recommended to be discontinued in 2016 is “Harvest Hoedown,” held at Naperville’s Riverview Farmstead Preserve. Schultz said the event never really caught on, but thinks a year off may allow them to retool the program. Several commissioners -including Steve Balich of Homer Township, and Don Gould of Shorewood – said they didn’t like the idea of cutting programs that have been popular with the residents.

spartaNs’ SEASON ENDS Romeoville falls to Bolingbrook in battle of Valley View schools By MarK gregory sports reporter

mark@buglenewspapers.com @Hear_The_Beard

Whenever Bolingbrook and Romeoville meet up in any sport there is extra intensity involved in the game, but even more when the game is a win or go home scenario. That was the case last week when the Raiders and Spartans met in the semifinals of the Class 4A Romeoville Regional. Romeoville played well, much better than it had in the quarterfinal win over LincolnWay Central the night before, but still fell to Bolingbrook 5339. “We went out with a stronger performance (than the game before),” said Romeoville coach Marc Howard. “We missed some free throws and layups early, but our game plan worked. We wanted to slow them down, keep them in front of us and contest the shooters.” The Spartans kept the game close until Bolingbrook used

an 8-2 run in the third quarter to get a 15-point lead heading into the final stanza. “We had a stretch in the third quarter where, being young, we started to force some shots,” Howard said. “That is a powerful team in terms of their scoring ability. When we are playing in a hurry and throw up some long shots and give long rebounds and let them get out and run and it went from seven to 13 quick.” Bolingbrook coach Rob Brost said the Raiders struggled, but the goal was to get a win. “We didn’t play as well as we have been,” he said. “But, we weren’t looking for style points. It’s win and move on and that was what happened today. We knew Romeoville was much better than they showed (against Lincoln-Way Central). We know it is not easy ever at this time of year because everyone is playing for their lives.” Early in the game, Romeoville

LEWIS

T hursday, M arch 12, 2015 | romeovi llebug le.com

Flyer men earns at-large bid for NCAA D-II tourney Women are No. 2 seed in Great Lakes Region The NCAA Division II Men’s Basketball Committee announced on Sunday (March 8) that the Lewis University men’s basketball team has earned an at-large bid and will compete in the 2015 NCAA Division II Men’s Basketball Championship for the first time since 2012. This is the 14th NCAA Tournament berth for the Flyers in schoolhistory. The Flyers (21-8) received the No. 7 seed and will take on second-seeded UW-Parkside

(26-3) on Saturday (March 14) at Bellarmine University’s Knight Hall in the Midwest Regional. Tip-off has yet to be determined. “I am so excited for this team and especially our seven seniors who have invested so much time and energy into this program,” Lewis head men’s basketball coach Scott Trost said. Saturday’s showdown with UW-Parkside will be the third time this season that these

teams have met, with the Rangers winning the previous two contests. “Obviously Parkside is very good and tremendously talented,” Trost said. “The two games prior were very close and I know our guys will be excited to play (them) again. “I have a tremendous amount of respect for UW-Parkside’s program.” Lewis is led offensively by AllGLVC Second Team selections in senior Ryan Jackson (Bolingbrook, Ill./RiversideBrookfield) and freshman Max Strus (Hickory Hills, Ill./Stagg). Jackson leads the Flyers in scoring (14.4 ppg.) and assists (3.7 apg.). Strus, who was named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Freshman of the Year, is averaging 13.3 points and 5.2 rebounds-per-game for the Flyers.

WOMEN’S HOOPS For the 10th time in program history and the third year in a row, Lewis women’s basketball is going dancing. The No. 2 in the nation Flyers learned on Sunday (March 8) night that they have earned the No. 2 seed in the 2015 NCAA Midwest Regional. Lewis will play No. 7 seed UW-Parkside in the opening round on Friday (March 13) at a time to be announced. No. 1 seed Michigan Tech will serve as the host. Lewis defeated UWParkside twice this season. Combined with Lewis’ berth in 2011, this is the fourth bid in five years for the Flyers. The Flyers made it each year from 2005 to 2007; meaning Lewis has qualified for the NCAA Tournament in seven of the last 11 years. “We have a group which has made qualifying for the NCAA Tournament an expectation,” Lewis head coach Lisa Carlsen said. “That is an easy goal to write on paper, but to accomplish it is another thing, especially in a region as strong as ours. I’m excited for the opportunity to continue our season.” Great Lakes Valley Conference

Brodric Thomas and Prentiss Nixon each hit two 3-pointers to and Darick Anderson had one to help the 27-18 lead at the half. “They are a good three point shooting team,” Howard said. “But we felt if they were going to beat us, we were going to make them live and die by the three and not let them pound it in to Julian Torres and Zach Grady.” For the game, Bolingbrook was led by Nixon’s 15 points, while Thomas added 14 points. After scoring only three points the previous game, Matt Cappelletti led Romeoville with 12 points, while Damon Harrison added seven.

T h ur sday, M arch 12, 2015 | romeovi llebug le.com lewis | from page 12 Player of the Year Jamie Johnson (South Holland, Ill./Marian Catholic) leads the Flyers. The CoSIDA Academic AllAmerica First Team selection is averaging 17.8 points per game. Her teammate, junior Mariyah Brawner-Henley (Skokie, Ill./ Niles North), is averaging 17.8 points and 12.0 rebounds per game. Thanks to a win over Maryville in the GLVC Quarterfinals, the 28-2 Flyers have tied the program record for single season wins. Earlier, No. 2 Lewis women’s basketball saw their hopes for a Great Lakes Valley Conference Championship end on Saturday (March 6) night in a 71-66 loss to Southern Indiana in the GLVC Tournament Semifinals at Family Arena. Early on it looked like the Flyers might run away with the game, taking an 18-3 lead nine minutes in thanks to a 14-0 run. But Southern Indiana responded by scoring the next 14 points as Lewis missed seven consecutive shots. By halftime Lewis had recovered and led 30-21. Southern Indiana broke the doors open to start the second half by scoring 10 straight points and taking their first lead of the game at the 17:27 mark on a 3-pointer by Kaydie Grooms. It was the first of 11 lead changes in the second half. Junior Jamie Johnson (South Holland, Ill./Marian Catholic) converted a 3-point play with 5:29 remaining to put Lewis up 61-58. It would be the Flyers’ final lead of the game. Southern Indiana took leads of 63-61 and 65-63 but each time the Flyers had an answer to tie the score. That was until Southern Indiana’s Mary O’Keefe hit a jumper with 2:06 remaining to give the Screaming Eagles a 6765 lead. Two misses from the field for Lewis and then two free throws by Grooms gave Southern Indiana a 69-65 lead with 1:05 left. Junior Mariyah Brawner-Henley (Skokie, Ill./ Niles North) made one-of-two free throws with 50 seconds left to make it a 3-point game. Lewis earned a stop on the other end but Johnson’s 3-pointer at the top of the arc 13 seconds remaining was no good. Two Southern Indiana free throws followed to seal the game. Southern Indiana shot 42.4 percent (25-of-59) while

limiting Lewis to their second worst shooting performance of the season at 35.0 percent (21of-60). Junior Jess Reinhart (Normal, Ill./Bloomington Central Catholic) finished with a teamhigh 14 points. Brawner-Henley added 13 points. Johnson totaled 12 and senior Kristin Itschner (Metamora, Ill./Peoria Notre Dame) added 10 points. “I think you got to give Southern Indiana credit,” Lewis head coach Lisa Carlsen said. “They did a really nice job, especially in the second half, of taking us out of our rhythm and taking us out of what we were trying to do on the offensive end. They did a great job on the glass and we didn’t rebound near as well as we did the in the first and that probably ended up being the difference.” Lewis was out-rebounded 2212 in the second half.

MEN’S TENNIS The Lewis University men’s tennis team lost a total of 12 games and did not lose any games in doubles action en route to the 9-0 non-conference whitewash over Morehouse College at the Morehouse Tennis Center on Saturday (March 7) afternoon. With the win, Lewis improves to 5-2 on the campaign, while the host Maroon Tigers are now 1-5. At No. 1 doubles, Lewis seniors Armand Levandi ( Tallinn, Estonia/Audentese Spordigumnaasiumi) and Erik Aunapuu ( Tallinn, E s t o n i a / Au d e n t e s e Spordigumnaasiumi) blanked Morehouse’s Everette Reese and Steven Hill, 8-0. Levandi also dominated Reese at No. 1 singles with the 6-1, 6-0 win, while Aunapuu dropped Jabez Beazer, 6-0, 6-0 at No. 3 singles. Lewis’ No. 2 doubles tandem of sophomore Mate Srdanovic (Split, Croatia/GraditeljskoGeodetska Tehnicka) and freshman Alan Fijalkowski (Arlington Heights, Ill./Buffalo Grove) earned the 8-0 win over Brandon Sanders and Phillippian Stamps. Srdanovic claimed the 6-3, 6-2 win over Steven Hill at No. 2 singles, while Fijalkowski upended Stamps, 6-2, 6-1, at No. 5 singles. The Flyers’ No. 3 tandem of junior Tim Stewart (Hickory Hills, Ill./Stagg) and freshman

Andre Norasith (Elgin, Ill./South Elgin) earned the 8-0 victory over Beazer and Christian Medlex. Norasith picked up the 6-0, 6-2 win over Sanders at No. 4 singles. Flyer sophomore Chris Jastrab (Kaiserslautern, Germany/ Kaiserslautern) beat Medlex, 6-1, 6-0, at No. 6 singles for the Flyers’ final victory of the afternoon. Lewis is back in action on March 13th, as the Flyers head to Springfield, Mo., to square off with Northeast Missouri State.

Remembering Gordie Former players, coaches reflect By Mark Gregory sports reporter

mark@buglenewspapers.com @Hear_The_Beard

With the death of coaching icon Gordie Gillespie brought many stories of his style and dedication to the many sports he coached. No matter who you talk to or what sport they played one general theme existed – Gillespie cared more for the athlete than the victory. That philosophy, however, turned into more than 2,000 wins in his illustrious career. “I had a chance to play for Gordie and then had a chance to assist with him for 14 years, seven at Joliet Catholic and seven at St. Francis,” said JCA football coach Dan Sharp. “The best memory I have of him is that he always made everyone better people. He always saw the best in everyone and was able to bring that out of them.” “He would make you feel good,” said Roger Hewlett, a linebacker on Gillespie’s first state championship team at Joliet Catholic. “He was a great motivator. That was why we were so good. You never had to try and get yourself ready to play, you just had to listen to him for five minutes before the game. He brought out the best in you.” Mark Parker, the quarterback on that 1975 state title team, agreed. “It didn’t matter the sport, it didn’t matter the gender and didn’t matter the level, he could get the most out of every athlete he coached,” he said. “You always felt like you did not want to let him down, in a game or in a simple drill in practice. It was never about him, he was all about the kids. He really wanted to see you do well, it was not all about getting the win. It didn’t matter what sport he coached or the high school level or college level – he was the same guy. He made every player feel like they were part of something special,

no matter if you were the all state player or a reserve.” Not only was Gillespie a motivator, he was an innovator as well. “He was very creative,” Parker said. “He was always thinking and trying to create something different offensively and defensively. He was always looking for that new wrinkle.” One of those wrinkles, was outlawed for a while. “Today everyone has this fast paced offense to see how many plays you can run. Well, back then, you always sent someone in with the plays,” said Pat Mudron, a 1967 graduate. “Gordie had a stick that he would hold and depending on how he hold it was the play. He was going back to his baseball thinking of signaling in the play. Well, that is normal now, but it was innovative then and someone called him out on it and he wasn’t able to do it because they said it was illegal.” Mudron also said Gillespie had a strategy that helped his teams win close games late. He said instead of scheming to run plays away from the team’s best defensive player, Gillespie would run right at them and make that player make play after play after play and, especially if they were a two-way player, they would be tired in the fourth quarter. “When you had that linebacker and running back two-way player, he would run right at him every play,” Mudron said. “So in the fourth quarter, when he got the ball, he was tired. He made sure those stars played hard for 48 minutes. If that coach left that kid on the field, Gordie was going to run at him.” Not only was Gillespie a great coach for players to while they played for him, but he was that same guy after. “He was always there for me after high school,” Hewlett said. “Whenever I needed advice or whatever, he was always there for me.” “He would always know you

Gordie Gillespie coached in the Joliet area for 57 years. and knew who you were and would remember everyone’s name,” said Jim Trizna, an offensive lineman on the 1975 team. “He was the best coach I ever had and he had a great run.” And, while Gillespie died, his

legacy will live on through those who coached under him. “When people talk about that coaching tree, like in the NFL, with the Bill Walsh coaching tree or whoever, that was the biggest influence I had from Gordie,” said JCA baseball coach Jared

Voss. “All the guys I was coached by and the guys I was around were all influenced by Gordie. They either were coached by him or coached with him.” It is that coaching tree that will keep Gillespie’s memory alive forever.

Dave Says

Breaking down what ‘first right of refusal’ means You could just ask the developer — in writing — to waive his first right of refusal By dave ramsey dave says

www.daveramsey.com @DaveRamsey

Dear Dave, I bought a piece of lake property not long ago, and the developer has first right of refusal if we decide to sell it. We originally looked at the property as an investment or building site, but I really don’t understand what first right of refusal means. Craig Dear Craig, A lot depends on the wording, but typically it means that you can sell property to another buyer subject to the developer not wanting to buy it back at that price.

If you decided to sell within the timeframe specified in the first right of refusal contract you’d have to notify the developer you have a written offer on the property. Then, you have to give him a chance to buy the lot first at that price.   Or, you could just ask the developer — in writing — to waive his first right of refusal if this is something you want to do. They’re in the business of selling lots, not buying them, so it may be an easy deal. —Dave

community > rialto square theatre

‘A circus wagon on our building’ But consultant says proposed Rialto marquee meets preservation standards By Pat Schager

for the enterprise

news@enterprisepublications.com @PlainfieldNews

The first meeting of the Rialto Marquee Advisory Committee March 4 brought out a handful of interested citizens to downtown Joliet’s University of St. Francis St. Bonaventure Campus. The ad hoc committee was formed as a response to the continuing community uproar over the pending replacement of the Rialto Square Theatre marquee. Objections to the marquee have ranged from “too large” to “too Las Vagasy,” “not in keeping with the historical marquee” familiar to so many theater-goers and residents. The members of the committee were announced at a January 28 meeting when Rialto board president James Smith said he was trying for objectivity and transparency after two donors each offered donations of $350,000 at different times to cover costs of

replacing the marquee. The donors asked that their gifts be returned when groups of residents and theatre patrons cried foul over the handling of the future looks and wordage of the sign above the theatre entrance as well as the structure size. At the inaugural committee meeting, Architect and Preservation Consultant Doug Gilbert of Oak Park gave an overview of the National Register of Historic Places and practices and examples of preservation of historic buildings. The public was given a chance to submit written questions and comments after the presentation. Committee chairman Chris Clott of USF reminded those present that this was an introductory advisory committee meeting and asked the public to hold their questions about the marquee for the next meeting on March 18. “This committee is charged with compiling facts which will then be presented to the Rialto Board in April,” he said.

Investment or debt?

Gilbert has 20 years preserving and restoring historic homes and buildings in Illinois, assessing buildings, and National Register nominations for the State of Illinois. He styled himself as an expert witness and explained Historic Preservation commission rules. Gilbert said the Rialto listed on the National Register in 1978, which is an honorary listing of historic sites. He explained there are no restrictions on private properties and there are tax credit incentives for rehabilitation work. He presented photos of Rialto marquees starting with the original 1926 structure which had panels that were interchangeable for different shows, the art deco flavor 1930’s marquee, the 1950’s marquee that featured larger end panels and large letters spelling out RIALTO above a smaller sized marquee and the current marquee from 1980, which he called “close to the original 1926 version.” Gilbert said in his opinion, the “marquee is not historic, but the design is.”

Media attention on the case resumed with a fervor on Feb. 25 after it became known that Peterson’s former attorney, Joel Brodsky, received two letters dated Jan. 15 and Feb. 16 - from a Stateville Correctional Center inmate, Adrian Gabriel. Brodsky posted copies of the letters, which reportedly came in the same envelope, to his business page on Facebook. He wrote in a post that he did not receive them until Feb. 20, 11 days after Peterson appeared in Randolph County court on the charges. The letters alleged a set-up and entrapment plot by Gabriel and his former cellmate, Antonio Smith - who allegedly befriended Peterson during a previous sixmonth incarceration at Menard. Gabriel’s Feb. 16 letter alleges that Smith stood up for Peterson when “someone was mistreating him” and after that, they became “really good friends.”

call that a debt, because you can always take the child out of the school if you see you can’t make the payment. Just make sure you carefully look over any contract involved and know what you’re getting into before you sign up for the ride. You don’t want to obligate yourself to money you don’t have, especially when you’ve worked so hard to get out of debt. Just save up, and have a place in your budget for tuition. —Dave * Dave Ramsey is America’s trusted voice on money and business.

In early February, there were allegations made by Peterson’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, that his client was having problems with the guards and prisoners at Menard. In an emailed response to the Herald Tribune, then-Illinois Department of Corrections Spokesman Tom Shaer wrote there was an allegation by Peterson last year of “a minor, non-physical situation.” Shaer, whose last day as spokesman was Feb. 20, wrote that there were no witnesses to that incident. “Offender Peterson’s allegation was thoroughly investigated and found to be completely without merit,” Shaer wrote. Gabriel’s letters allude to a collaboration with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in return for his trial transcripts and money “to keep my mouth shut,” but the deal changed when Smith was allegedly sent back to Menard to “get the recorded evidence against Mr. Peterson.” Gabriel, meanwhile, was placed in segregation at Stateville with “no pen/paper, no phone and no visits.” At that point, Gabriel apparently began writing Greenberg about the plot. After not receiving a desired response from Greenberg, Gabriel wrote the letters to Brodsky.
