hen former CEO of the Northern Illinois Food Bank Pete Schaefer invited Brian McCaskey to partner in an effort for the Northern Illinois Food Bank, he asked if the vice president of the Chicago Bears had any ideas. McCaskey said he had an idea that he’s been kicking around for 20 or 25 years, and that was the birth of Stars & Cars more than five years ago.

or many of us, he will always be Billy. But as William Corgan, front man of The Smashing Pumpkins, began to edge closer to age 50, he was having second thoughts about that. As he puts it,“I prefer to be called William. Billy is more of a stage name in my head at this point.” Highland Park resident, business owner and Grammy Award-winning musician Corgan’s name isn’t the only thing that’s different about his new solo album Ogilala (Martha’s Music/ BMG). Produced by Rick Rubin, the 11 songs take Corgan in a dazzling new direction via stripped down arrangements that focus on his distinctive voice accompanied by piano and acoustic guitar. The results are breathtaking. Corgan will perform in Chicago at the Athenaeum Theatre October 24 & 25. I spoke with Corgan, who de-

scribes himself as “HP all the time,” about Ogilala and life in Highland Park shortly before the October 2017 release of the album. Gregg Shapiro: “Zowie” is the perfect name for the first song on

Ogilala because that’s probably the reaction listeners will have when they hear the gorgeous piano and vocal tune. William Patrick Corgan: It’s funny because Rick (Rubin, pro-

ducer) questioned the title when we were recording the record. It’s my little nod to David Bowie’s passing. It doesn’t sound like David Bowie, but there are certain chords that remind me of what David would

do. I was thinking of him a lot when I wrote the song. I think it was around the time of his passing. It was my way of tipping my hat to David in a way that you would only Continued on PG 10

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

NEWS CORGAN Continued from PG 1 recognize if you were a David fan. GS: Wasn’t Zowie the name of his (eldest) son? WPC: Yes. Although I think eventually his son changed his name (to Duncan Jones), because that’s obviously a weird name to have [laughs]. I even got to meet his son a few times along the way. When we’re in dream language, as we are when we’re writing songs, things kind of pop up. I don’t really question them much, as any of my dubious song titles indicate [laughs]. I go with whatever I feel at the time. Like I said, Rick raised an eyebrow to the title, but it just stuck. GS: The songs on Ogilala have these lovely piano, vocal and acoustic guitar arrangements. Were you listening to something before or while making the album that inspired this direction? WPC: That’s a really good question. For years I’ve listened to people who were prominent in the English folk movement in the `60s who were very influential, but many people don’t know their names, (such as) Anne Briggs, Bert Jansch and Davey Graham, as well as Pentangle and Sandy Denny, who sang on the (Led) Zeppelin album. I found myself as a listener to be really attracted to that type of music.

Sometimes music can be an antidote to what we’re going through not only in life, but also in the culture. I think there is a certain synchronistic quality to how folk music was very important during the turbulent times of the 1960s. There’s something about folk music or those types of tones or chords and melodies that remind us that there’s a longer history here. Although this time seems very difficult, we’ve gotten through these times before. I found myself listening and I don’t know if it permeated my interest in what I wanted to do musically. GS: Do you feel like these kinds of arrangements, on “The Spaniards”, “Processional”, “Aeronaut” and “Half-Life of an Autodidact”, for instance, gave you the chance to exercise different vocal muscles? WPC: I’ve played music like this privately for 20 years. Friends would always say, “Why don’t you record more like this? Why don’t you put more than one song like this, here or there, on an album?” I would just shrug and say that it’s hard to compete in the world of Sturm und Drang with this kind of simplicity. It might also be a little bit my age where I feel confident that I can sing better. So much of that music is really about the ability to deliver the vocal. I came up as a

guitar player, so vocal were always like an ancillary thing to what I did as a musician. It’s taken me a long time to feel like a lead singer first and a guitar player second. GS: That’s interesting because your voice is so distinctive. Nobody else sounds like you. WPC: I appreciate that. I don’t mean this in an insecure way, but my father, who was a great musician, criticized my voice. He told me to find a lead singer for The Pumpkins [laughs]. My voice has always been this polemic that divides people on whether they like the band or the songs. When I was younger, it didn’t feel like something I could stand behind because it didn’t feel like anybody was rooting for me in the

general sense. Over time I started to realize that for the people who did like what I was doing, it really was about the voice. I started thinking that wasn’t a bad thing [laughs] and that’s not going to change, so I might as well just figure it out. GS: Ogilala is being released in different formats including 180gram vinyl, as well as limited edition blue and pink vinyl versions. As both a musician and a music consumer, what do you think of the vinyl revival? WPC: It’s fantastic. Even here at my teahouse, ZuZu’s, I encourage the staff to play more vinyl for guests throughout the day. There’s something about the warmth of vinyl that’s so much more inviting.

I love the convenience of the digital world, but sonically I think that we’ve entered into a weird place where people are looking for the personal aspect of vinyl. It’s okay that it’s not perfect and that it’s a little bit distorted. I love it. I’m a collector. It’s an obsession. GS: You mentioned you are a father. I’m wondering how much your being a father plays a part in this new solo sound? WPC: I don’t know. I know that it’s pretty cool that my son, from his earliest days, got used to me playing the guitar around him. He’s very comfortable with touching the guitar, playing the piano. He has his own toy guitar and piano to play on his own. We don’t really watch much TV. We try to emphasize play and reading and stuff like that. There’s not a lot of distraction going on in our home other than music. GS: Speaking of fatherhood, how would you rate Highland Park as a place to raise a child? WPC: Great! Really! I moved up here when I was an unrepentant bachelor and I’m really grateful because this is such a great place for families. I love the community. Highland Parkers aren’t easy to get to know.They’re very into their own worlds, which is fine. I don’t have a problem with that because I’m left alone and my privacy is really

moved to Lake Forest in 1975,” he said. “It’s been a dream of mine to live there and it took me 35 years.” Another dream of McCaskey’s was to have a pivotal role in Bears training, and he takes pride in being the co-director of his 20th Bears Training Camp, sharing the duties with his longtime friend and mentor Clyde Emrich. McCaskey was born 10th out of 11 children. “Growing up, everything Bears was a lot of fun and such a great privilege,” said McCaskey, who worked as a ball boy at 14. Throughout his childhood, his grandfather George Halas was either coaching or running the team. McCaskey enjoyed meeting many of the players, and his family forged a special bond with Walter Payton. McCaskey said Payton was considered part of the Bears family and part of the McCaskey-Halas family, and after he retired he served on the board of directors.“The hope was to introduce him to other NFL owners, and his dream was to one day be an owner of an NFL Franchise,” he added. Mother Virginia Halas McCaskey, 94, is the matriarch owner of the Bears, and she and McCaskey both serve on the board of directors. He said she attends the meetings, asks important questions and is very attentive to the details. In addition, she goes to all of the home games

I’m also happy to be a part of where Highland Park is going as a community. I talk to community leaders all the time about different ideas. It’s great, I love it! GS: You mentioned your teahouse, Madame ZuZu’s, which has become a Highland Park institution. What’s your favorite tea drink, hot or cold? WPC: I’ve been really partial to the Rose Noir tea. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a very hot summer. But on a good summer’s day, that’s a beautiful drink to have. The first time I ever had true Rose Tea was at the Savoy in London. I was sitting in the vaunted tea room drinking rose tea, in this historic place that even George Harrison references, and I remember thinking, “One day, if only I could…” Years later, I have my own teahouse and I’m sitting on my front porch at Zuzu’s drinking Rose Black tea. It’s a real pleasure. William Patrick Corgan will perform in Chicago at the Athenaeum Theatre October 24 & 25.

STANDOUT STUDENT

Porter says ‘Aye aye’ to sailing and teaching BY BILL MCLEAN

I

magine traveling by car, from Lake Forest to Chicago, to sail in a race and learning one of your crewmates atop Burnham Harbor would be a reigning Paralympic silver medalist. Will Porter doesn’t have to imagine such a scenario. The Lake Forest High School senior experienced it last summer before the start of the Independence Cup, a premier regatta — organized by the Judd Goldman Adaptive Sailing Foundation ( JGASF) — for sailors with disabilities. “My boss [at Lake Forest Sailing] informed me that they needed an able-bodied sailor,” Porter says. “I immediately told him, ‘I’m in.’ ” The other two sailors in the boat with Porter were Rick Doerr and Charles McClure. Doerr, 56 and a native of Clifton, New Jersey, had captured a silver medal in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in the Sonar class (three-person

keelboat) at the 2016 Paralympics. The physician, who was paralyzed in a 1992 car accident and became a Disabled Sailing world champion in 2007, is the longest-tenured member of the US Sailing Team. Doerr, McClure and Porter cruised to first place in the Independence Cup (Sonar divi-

sion) in late July. “Rich Doerr is pretty awesome,” says Porter, who has been hooked on sailing since helming an Optimist (dinghy) at the age of 5. “He’s also one of my heroes. I found out how competitive he is and how much he loves to compete. But he’s also a sailor who loves to sail because it’s fun.” Porter got serious last summer — as a sailing instructor. He taught able-bodied students and, for the first time, disabled students. His first disabled pupil was Barry, a man in his 60s. They navigated together aboard a vessel named Barb, a Freedom 20 sailboat provided by JGASF. “Barry went straight for the tiller,” Porter says. “I coached him through it. What a great student. He encouraged me to become more involved in teaching after we got out of the boat.” Kim, a disabled woman in her 20s, took three lessons from Porter. Her father had told her she would get to steer a Sunfish

someday, but only if she were to develop the necessary skills. “Kim loved being on the water, loved learning,” says Porter, a member of the Lake Forest High School sailing team since his freshman year. “Her father had certainly motivated her. Kim wanted to have a good time during the lessons, and I could tell she did. She also wanted to sit down with me on a bench and have me whiteboard instructions for her.” Porter joined seven others — some in high school, some in college — as JGASF instructors last summer. Youngsters affiliated with the Great Lakes Adaptive Sport Association (GLASA) also received guidance from Porter in sailboats. “Will was great with kids and with the adults, absolutely great,” says JGASF Executive Administrator Kerry Tarmey. “Not all kids are comfortable being around people with disabilities. That’s not the case with Will. Will jumped right in as a

Will jumped right in as a teacher, embracing the opportunities to share his love for sailing. — Kerry Tarmey, on Will Porter, a senior at Lake Forest High School teacher, embracing the opportunities to share his love for sailing and embodying what we’re all about — inclusiveness.”

Porter also spent meaningful time indoors last summer, tutoring children f rom North Chicago and Zion once a week as a volunteer for Reading Power. Jibs one day, verbs the next. Porter is taking trigonometry, psychology, AP environmental science and Latin at LFHS this semester. “That’s my focus now, working hard in school,” Porter says. In late December he might find himself on a body of water with a decorated sailor. Again. “Rick Doerr emailed my dad [Bill],” Porter says. “He invited me to race with him in a World Cup competition [off a coast in Florida). That would be another exciting opportunity. “We’re considering it.” Do you know a teen doing outstanding work in the f ield of charity, science, arts, business or education?

Wizardry of ‘Ox’

Junior quarterback has New Trier football team heading down the right road BY KEVIN REITERMAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

H

is Twitter handle is @CarsonOx4. But don’t be mislead. Carson Ochsenhirt, New Trier’s gritty and intrepid quarterback, is more cheetah than ox. He’s got speed to burn with uncanny elusiveness. And obstacles? They don’t seem to stymie him. Ochsenhirt just hurdles over those. Which brings us to the 5:40 mark of the fourth quarter in New Trier’s 27-17 win over host Evanston on Sept. 28. On 2nd-and-goal at the Wildkits’ 10-yard line, Ochsenhirt made like Edwin Moses at the 1984 Olympics. On a QB keeper to the left side, the junior hurdled over Evanston linebacker Charlie Gruner at the two-yard yard and dove helmet first into the end zone for a touchdown. Needs some proof? Check out @CarsonOx4. “A magnificent play,” marveled NT teammate Peter Murray. “A highlight-reel play.” A designed play? Umm, maybe not. “One of those hold-yourbreath plays,” New Trier head coach Brian Doll said. “Something he probably saw on TV. But kudos to him. “I wouldn’t be able to do that,” added the coach, with a smile. “I’m kind of jealous.” The play was … pure Ochsenhirt. “I think of myself as a Michael Vick type of player,” said Ochsenhirt, who fittingly wears jersey No. 7 (as Vick did during his days with the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles). “I’ve been wanting to do that [hurdle] for a while,” he added. Such a play seems to be in vogue. A week earlier, in a win over Mt. Carmel, Loyola Academy senior quarterback

when I was running untouched for 10 yards,” he added. Ochsenhirt understands the team concept. Last spring, he was the starting defensive middie for the school’s state champion lacrosse team. That experience was invaluable. “It was a chance to play in f ront of a big crowd,” said Ochsenhirt. “Up until then, I had never done that.” Meanwhile, Ochsenhirt is not interested in playing the comparison game … with Army freshman Clay Czyzynski, a three-year starter — and dual threat — for the Trevians (2014-16). “Obviously, he was great athlete. A great quarterback,” Ochsenhirt said. “But I just want to be me. I’m my own person.” Notable: Ne w Tr ier ’s running game also featured Brian Sitzer (16-97) and Peter Murray (9-63).

She’s drawn to the position — now Hielscher thriving at setter for 18-2 Trevians volleyball team BY BILL MCLEAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

P

ayton Hielscher received an ‘A’ for the self-portrait she drew for an art class in her freshman year at New Trier. Had she graded it, though, her grade-point average would have taken a major hit. “It was bad,” says the 6-foot Hielscher, a junior in her second season as the starting setter for the Trevians’ varsity volleyball team, which improved to 18-2 (6-0 in the Central Suburban League South) with its 24-26, 25-18, 25-17 defeat of host Niles North on Oct. 2. “It didn’t look anything like me.” Years ago, as a member of a Wildcat Juniors Volleyball Club, a coach wanted to see what Hielscher — an outside hitter at the time — would look like as a setter. Hielscher gave it a go … hesitantly. “I didn’t like it at first,” the Winnetka resident recalls. “It was … different. But once I learned more about the position and got used to it, I liked it, liked the responsibilities that came with it, as well as the decision-making

ketball at Princeton), attended New Trier. “We’d talk about the sport at home, or wherever we happened to be, and I remember how happy she was after wins.” In NT’s 17th win this season, Hielscher lofted 18 assists and finished with three kills and a block in a 25-19, 25-21 defeat of visiting Niles West on Sept. 28. Niles West had defeated New Trier in a Class 4A regional championship match and ended up in the Final Four last fall. “First of all, there’s her height … Payton uses that to her advantage,” Trevians junior outside hitter Taite Ryan says of the all-CSL South selectee in 2016. “She can dump it or go to any of her hitters. What also makes her effective as a setter is her unpredictability. You never know what

she’s going to do with the ball. Teams do not enjoy competing against a setter like that. “What I especially like about her as a setter — and I’m not the only one on my team who thinks this way — is her ability to make it easy for me to hit. She makes my life, my job as a hitter, easier on the court.” Hielscher had recorded nearly 300 assists through the match with Niles West last week. Her ace total, also through Sept. 28, ranked second among teammates. “Her demeanor in matches,” Hsieh says, “is always a calm one. Payton never gets frazzled, never gets rattled. Even-keeled — that’s what I think of when I think of Payton on a volleyball court. You want a setter with

those qualities. Plus she’s bright, a great server, and she sets up her hitters well.” Hielscher considers volleyball the ultimate team sport. It is, after all, illegal in most states to pass your own dig, set your own pass and then kill your own set. “Every player on a volleyball team depends on everybody else,” Hielscher says. “I love that about volleyball. Everybody has to contribute if you want to be a successful team. Everybody touches the ball. “Everybody,” she adds, “has a presence.” Hielscher, immediately following a New Trier point in matches, likes to turn toward her teammates, clench both fists and pump both arms.

Freeze that frame. Got it? Now draw that, Payton Hielscher. Notable: No fewer than four Trevians struck for three kills in New Trier’s 25-19, 25-21 defeat of Niles West’s visiting Wolves on Sept. 28. Junior setter Payton Hielscher, junior middle Gillian Klise, junior outside hitter Taite Ryan and junior outside hitter/ right-side hitter Maddie McGregor paced the attack to avenge a 2016 postseason loss to NW. McGregor smacked a teamhigh four aces, one more than Taite’s total. Klise popped for three blocks, and senior rightside hitter Grace Kapsimalis finished with two kills and two blocks in the Central Suburban League South contest.

s Joey Harrigan walked to the third hole of the Central Suburban League North Tournament at Glencoe Golf Club last week, he must have had 10 things on his mind. Ten strokes, actually. It had taken the Highland Park High School senior that many to complete the par-five second hole on Sept. 27. An 8 on a hole in golf is called “a snowman”. A 10? Far from perfect. “I told myself, ‘You’re better than that,’ ” Harrigan recalls. “So, as I’m about to hit my tee shot [at No. 3, a par four], I’m thinking about what I need to do to recover.

[Joey Harrigan’s] mindset all season has been, ‘Next shot, next shot; move on and focus on the next shot and only the next shot.’ I’m proud of the way he’s playing, especially [throughout September]” — Highland Park High School boys golf coach Scott Leibfried. “I became more aggressive; I attacked that pin and continued to attack pins for the rest of my round. I had some making up to do, and I was all riled up.” Harrigan — an integral member of the Giants’ eighthplace team at the Class 3A state tournament last fall and a team captain this fall — smoked his tee shot about 300 yards with a

Park,” Leibfried says. “I’m confident he’ll be remembered as a player who had an impact in our program.” The other serious sport in Harrigan’s life is chess. The young man who wants nothing to do with snap hooks knows all there is to know about rooks. Harrigan was a kindergartner when a gentleman at a daycare center introduced him to the game of chess. “He was a patient teacher,” remembers Harrigan, who intends to major in engineering in college. Harrigan competed for the HPHS chess team at the past three Illinois High School Association (IHSA) state chess tournaments. The school’s 2015-16 squad, in the winter of his sophomore year, placed fourth at state under Giants coach Pablo Alvarez at the Peoria Civic Center. “You need patience in chess, because most matches last two hours,” Harrigan says. You must also be blessed with intelligence and a sharp memory and problem-solving skills if you’re interested in succeeding in chess. Check. Check.

Steely John ‘Understated’ approach plays well with Loyola Academy’s Kryscio

J

ohn Kryscio’s poker face on a golf course makes an ace poker player’s poker face at a card table look downright … animated. Forget about taking a gander at Kryscio right after a round of golf and attempting to figure out how the Loyola Academy senior had performed. It would be an exercise in futility. It would drive you crazy. “We laugh because you can never tell if he’s happy or sad or somewhere in between about what he did on a golf course,” Ramblers first-year assistant golf coach Mark Nugent says. “Such a good kid, and his disposition for the game of golf is just … perfect. Kryscio — a top-six varsity Rambler since the start of his freshman year — once approached LA head coach Tim Kane with his scorecard in hand at an invitational. Kryscio’s visage was as blank as the sheets of paper in a brandnew notebook. “He handed the scorecard to me and said, ‘Here ya go, Coach,’ ” Kane recalls. “He wasn’t excited at all. I looked at the scorecard. He had shot a 69. I looked up at him, and he said, ‘I hit it alright today.’ “Understated,” the coach adds. “John is very understated.” The 6-foot-3, 175-pound Kryscio, a Glenview resident, competed at the Class 3A state tournament in each of his first three seasons, twice as a team member and once as an individual qualifier. He tied for 19th place with a 157 (82-75) in 2015; he helped the Ramblers place fifth last fall and ninth in ’14. Kryscio’s two-day state effort of 79-84 in his freshman year ranked second among Ramblers. At the Buffalo Grove Invitational on Sept. 2, Kryscio earned medalist honors with a threeunder 69, a little more than a week after carding a two-under 34 in a nine-hole dual with North Shore Country Day at the Merit Club in Libertyville. His 74 tied teammate Ben Scherman for ninth place at the Chicago Catholic League Championship, held at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club (No. 3)

in Lemont on Sept. 27. LA brothers Chip Savarie and Ryan Savarie tied for third place with 71s, as Kane’s crew (290) finished runner-up to champion Fenwick (288). “John has really matured as a player and as a young man,” Kane says, adding Kryscio’s reliable, lengthy iron play is usually the factor behind those low scores. “He’s become a good leader, too. He sets a good example with his work ethic and his steadiness.” Kryscio gripped a golf club (a plastic one) for the first time at

John [Kryscio] has really matured as a player and as a young man. He’s become a good leader, too.

good eye-hand coordination; maybe that had something to do with loving it right away. My first tournament, I remember being scared, really scared. I didn’t know what to expect, and I went for everything.” How many golfers can say they toured a golf course in only 67 strokes as a 12-year-old? Not many is the guess here. But John Kryscio can, having accomplished the feat in Bloomington. “Had it going; was in a zone,” he says matter-of-factly. Bad holes and bad rounds don’t bother Kryscio today. But that wasn’t always the case. “I had a little temper,” Kryscio admits. “Going into my junior year, I started to realize playing with a calm demeanor was the way to go and very helpful. I’ve been playing that way ever

since.” Kryscio told Kane he wouldn’t play basketball his freshman year. But he changed his mind and went out for the freshman team. The stretch 5 (center) ended up with team MVP honors. “His sophomore year,” Kane says, “he told me he wouldn’t go out for the sophomore basketball team. Guess what? He went out for the sophomore basketball team.” And emerged with team MVP honors again. “I have no problem when my players play another sport during the school year,” Kane says. “Ask a lot of coaches, in any sport, about that, and they’ll agree with me. It’s always a good thing when an athlete competes in another sport.” The huge University of Kentucky men’s basketball fan —

Kryscio’s parents, Doug and Michelle, attended the school in Lexington — told people he wouldn’t attend tryouts for varsity hoops last winter, and this time he stuck with that plan. Kryscio made another big decision at the end of his junior year and shared it with his parents at the dinner table: “I told them I wasn’t interested in playing golf in college,” says Kryscio, who is looking at Indiana University, the University of Kentucky, Dayton, Miami of Ohio, Marquette and SMU. “My intent is to go to college and major in something business-related. The sport of golf … I had fun with it, enjoyed playing it at tournaments and for my school, and it changed me completely. I’ll always be able to look back on the experiences I had with it and realize it benefitted me.”

Notable: Loyola Academy was scheduled to host a Class 3A regional at Glencoe Golf Club on Oct. 3, with the qualifying teams and individuals advancing to the New Trier Sectional at the Winnetka Golf Club on Oct. 9. … Loyola Academy’s sophomore boys golf team captured the Chicago Catholic League Championship last month with a score of 299. LA’s Patrick Adler shot a medalist round of 69. … LA’s varsity (298) finished runner-up to Lake Forest Blue (one of two teams fielded by host Lake Forest High School) at an invite staged at the par-72 Lake Bluff Golf Club on Sept. 23. Michael O’Sullivan and Ben Scherman each shot a 73 (5 shots behind medalist Jackson Bussell of Stevenson) for the Ramblers, and Chip Savarie chipped in with a 75.

Price gets a kick out of watching Historic Wagner Farm grow BY BILL MCLEAN ILLUSTRATION BY BARRY BLITT

T

odd Price — the son of a farmer named Van and a teacher named Jan — has been the director of Historic Wagner Farm in Glenview since 2001. How fitting is that? “It’s as much of a farm as it is a museum,” Todd Price, 46, says of the 18.6-acre farm, one of the first working dairy farms in Cook County that is open to the public for recreation and learning. “My dad [who died, at the age of 70, in 2009] was my hero, and I still think about him all the time. He worked incredibly hard on our farm in Iowa; his thing was, ‘Be proud of what you do.’ My mom [a former teacher at Wescott Elementary in Northbrook] got me into history. I went to Civil War re-enactments with her in Missouri, starting when I was 10. I wasn’t allowed to hold a musket at one of those until I was 16.” After ordering coffee, scrambled eggs and biscuits with gravy at Egg Harbor Café in Glenview, the genial graduate of Clarinda High School in Iowa and Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, informs me he is reading a book about General George Custer. Minutes later he recounts a rewarding moment at Historic Wagner Farm. “I’m leading a class one day, and the kids were totally into it,” Price recalls. “Remember, we have great props there — animals and crops. The kids were so excited that day that they beat me to the door of a building I was going to show them. That kind of excitement thrilled me. “I’m a teacher at heart. I’m a historian. And I love farming.” Born in Evanston, Price lived in Northbrook for five
