Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest fundraising event to raise awareness and funds to combat the disease. Held in 600 communities nationwide, the organization sponsors 27 fundraising walks in Illinois alone, including nearby walks in Chicago, Lake County, the western suburbs, and St Charles. “We want these walks to be very local,” said Jessica Munoz, senior manager for special events for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Illinois Chapter. “We don’t want participants to have to travel more than half an hour from home … many people living with the disease are not mobile, and time is precious.” Now in its 4th year, the 2017 North Shore Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place at 8 a.m. on Saturday, September 16, drawing in nearly 1,000 participants to raise an estimated $225,000 toward the work of the Alzheimer’s Association.

BEN SENIOR NEW TRIER HIGH SCHOOL

SUICIDE Cont. from PG 1 Elyssa,who suffered from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, died from suicide in 2004 at age 16. “This is part of a spiritual path Elyssa has put me on,” said Meyers. “Every day I’m driven to get to work and reach those kids,like Elyssa,who are at risk and in danger of taking their own lives.” The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention estimates that an American dies by suicide every 12.3 minutes, and that 90% of those people had a diagnosable psychiatric disorder at the time of their death. September 10-17 is National Suicide Prevention Week. “Suicide has always been an issue among teens, but now more people are willing to speak up and talk about it,” said Meyers. “It’s when we don’t talk about it that lives are taken.” Since its inception in 2006, Elyssa’s Mission has reached more than 200,000 community members. The organization: •Funds and implements the evidence-based SOS Signs of Suicide Prevention Program in more than 130 middle and high schools in 70 suburbs throughout Illinois. •Works in partnership with Screening for Mental Health, a Massachusetts-based organization that pioneered the concept of largescale mental health screening and education programs. •Implements all components of the SOS program including planning, teaching and training for staff and parents. “No longer do schools just want us to come in and make a presenta-

tion to students,”said Meyers.“They want a hands-on, comprehensive program.” Now in its seventh year, Elyssa’s Mission’s SOS universal screening program has identified hundreds of at-risk teens in Illinois and helped them access the counseling they need. North Shore partner schools include Glenbrook North and Glenbrook South High Schools, Fields Middle School in Northbrook, Kenilworth’s Sears School, and Wilmette Junior High School. At the core of Elyssa’s Mission’s SOS screening program is ACT - the acronym for Acknowledge,Care and Tell - a technique teens can use to identify symptoms that make themselves, or a friend, at risk for suicide. “On average about 13% of the students who go through our SOS program are in need of intervention, which typically leads to a session with a school social worker,”said the director of education for Elyssa’s Mission,

Jodie Segal. “Approximately 50% of those students are then referred on for counseling services.” Last year alone, Elyssa’s Mission reached approximately 32,000 students in the State of Illinois,identifying 1,900 at-risk students who were referred on for further services - 60 of whom were hospitalized for treatment. Both Segal and Meyers said the popularity of last year’s controversial television show, 13 Reasons Why, put the subject of teen suicide on many schools’urgent agenda. The 13-epidsode drama, released on Netflix last spring, portrays a high school student’s descent into depression as a result of betrayal and bullying, ultimately ending in her suicide. She recounts the reasons she took her life in an audio diary that arrives by mail to a friend after her death. “Word about this show spread very quickly through communities,” said Segal. “It raised awareness and

provoked discussion among students and parents.” Segal said depression is the No. 1 risk factor for suicide, and that social media is often a source of bullying, stress and unhappiness for teens. “There is so much comparison between teens now, namely how many ‘friends’ they have and how many ‘likes’ a post gets,” said Segal. “It’s putting more kids at risk.” Through its annual “A Race to Save Young Lives”fundraiser,Elyssa’s Mission hopes to generate more than $100,000 to support its hands-on educational programs, as well as its college scholarship program for high school juniors and seniors, awarded to a handful of students each year who have thoughtfully demonstrated how they’ve applied the ACT technique to help themselves or a friend, peer, or community member. “These are students who can show how this program has benefitted their lives,” said Segal.

Ben Senior — a junior at New Trier after spending his freshman and sophomore years at Beacon Academy in Evanston — took gold (Best Student Film) for his silver-screen effort (The Routine, a psychological thriller) at the Illinois International Film Festival in late May. The short film (35 minutes) also will be shown later this month at the Chicago Horror Film Festival at the Patio Theater.

Local craft beers to get party started at St. Joe’s Oktoberfest

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

Northshore Dermatology Center

BY DONALD LIEBENSON DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

T

hese are boom times for craft breweries and the people who enjoy them. There are more than 150 craft breweries in Illinois, whose growing popularity is tied to a “drink locally” trend. “The amount of breweries coming up and expanding is huge,” observed Allesandro Vazquez, president of Oswego, Illinois-based Brew Avenue Events, which is mounting the Great St. Joe Craft Beer Festival in Wilmette on September 16. “There is almost a new brewery opening every month, and every other town is either working on a craft beer project or a brewery is ramping up production. Craft beer is becoming as diverse as the wine market with a proliferation of different styles and ingredients.” The beer festival will give visitors the opportunity to taste nearly a dozen local labels. It’s a new addition to St. Joseph’s Oktoberfest celebration, now in its 14th year, which traditionally includes an afternoon Antiques Market and Family Fun Fest and an evening party. The inaugural Great St. Joe Craft Beer Festival, which will run from noon to 4 p.m. for adults ages 21 and up, will help get the party started. The local breweries and cideries scheduled to participate include Alarmist Brewing, Right Be Cider, and Revolution Brewing from Chicago, North Shore Cider Company, Temperance Beer Co., Sketchbook Brewing Co., and Smylie Brothers Brewing Co. in Evanston, Ten Ninety Brewing Company, and Macushla Brewing Company in Glenview, and New Belgium Brewing Company in Fort Collins, Colorado. The beer festival will also feature food trucks. Oktoberfest is one of two primary public events to raise funds for St. Joseph’s school and parish. “It’s part of our community outreach to showcase who we are with inclusive events for all ages and who live in all areas of the North Shore,” Dave Mastrofski, co-chair of the festival, said. The craft beer festival is an aperitif to the main event. “Okotberfest is still the big party,” Mastrofski said. “We’re inviting people to spend a day at St. Jo-

seph’s. I think a fall Saturday spent sampling beers is a great way to spend the afternoon.” As with wine, this can be intimidating to the more casual drinker, but craft beer festivals are going a long way toward making the artisan brewing process accessible. “It’s a great way to be introduced face-to-face to the public, to get your beer into people’s glasses, and to talk about your craft and creativity,” said Vasquez. Mike Walsh was a home brewer for 10 years before opening Macushla Brewing Company in August. The Great St. Joe Craft Beer Festival is his second festival. Macushla (a Gaelic term of endearment heartbreakingly referenced by Clint Eastwood in the film Million Dollar Baby, and decades before that as the name of the cow in the 1945 holiday

film classic Christmas In Connecticut) is a micro, or small batch, brewery and tap room located on Lake Avenue. It shares a parking lot with Hackney’s (Welch’s grandfather purchased Hackney’s restaurant almost 80 years ago). The festival is a welcome vehicle to “get our name and our good beers out to our neighbors and let them know we’re here,” Walsh said. “Participating in the community is hugely important, especially the church community.” (Walsh is an alumnus of Our Lady of Perpetual Help parish in Glenview, but his father-in-law attended St. Joseph’s). Mastrofski anticipates growing the Craft Beer Festival to include more brewers and food trucks. “By no means am I an expert,” he said, “but I’m an expert sampler.” Oktoberfest is on Saturday, September 16 at St. Joseph’s School on

Lake and Ridge Avenues in Wilmette. The Antiques Market will run from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The Family Festival begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m. These two events are free.

The Dinner and Outdoor Party runs from 6 to 11:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 per adult, $20 for seniors, and include a traditional German dinner at 6 p.m. A party with live entertainment follows at 8:30 p.m. A party-only ticket is $20 per adult. The Craft Beer Festival will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Tickets are $45 per adult and include a 16-beer/cider sample passport and souvenir tasting glass. Additional beer sample tickets will be available for purchase.

igan in Ann Arbor. “One of the keys to debate is the preparation — it takes hours, lots of hours, to be good at it,” Li says. A critical trait for a leader of a sports team is resiliency. Li owns that, and so does her father. “I admire my father’s work ethic, but he’s also mild-mannered, a man who goes with the flow,” Li says. “I inherited that easygoing nature from him.” A teacher at Glenbrook North was diagnosed with breast cancer in June. Guess who’s working on a feature, to run in an October issue of Torch, about the teacher? Lan’s diligent daughter. Li could not have picked a better time to publish it, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. One of Li’s favorite pastimes, in any month, is viewing classic movies. Many of her good friends, who are also fans of vintage flicks, live far away.

But that doesn’t stop the buddies from getting together occasionally to share their reviews and reactions to certain scenes and lines. “We bond by watching the movies and talking about them on Skype or FaceTime,” Li says. The best connection in Li’s life, though, will occur without the aid of technology, in early June of next year. Can you see it? Maggie Li collects her diploma at Glenbrook North’s graduation ceremony and spots her proud mother in the audience. The daughter raises the certificate above her head. The survivor claps enthusiastically. Both beam. Do you know a teen doing outstanding work in the f ield of charity, science, arts, business or education?

What buoyed Lan, as she came to grips with the news and then underwent treatment: a relentless desire to see her daughter graduate from Glenbrook North High School. It’s going to happen. “That motivated her to beat cancer, and that’s what she did,” says Li, now a senior at the high school in Northbrook. “She was determined.” The same can be said about Lan’s daughter.

Turning cartwheels Times are good as Savino sparks Titans to solid win over St. Patrick BY KEVIN REITERMAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

D

isplaying the speed of a gazelle and the body control of a circus acrobat, Anthony Savino came up with an athletically spellbinding play the other night. It was … head over heels impressive. Dance-move perfect. YouTube worthy. Roll the tape. With only a few seconds elapsed in the fourth quarter, Glenbrook South’s Andy Sirakides lifted a lofty left-footed punt toward the St. Patrick end zone. How lofty? The ball and the speedy Savino arrived at the St. Patrick oneyard line almost simultaneously. That wasn’t the hard part. The hard part for Savino was keeping the ball in play and out of the end zone by leaving his feet, cupping the ball and swatting it back to teammate Ryan O’Hara at the 2½-yard line. It was an eye-rubbing play. Often tried. Rarely successful. “Just trying to make a play,” said Savino, who made at least three signature plays in Glenbrook South’s 34-21 victory over visiting St. Patrick on Sept. 1. “A once-in-a-lifetime play for me to make.” “It was unbelievable,” added GBS head coach Dave Schoenwetter, after guiding the Titans to their second straight win of the new season. “Anthony is one of the fastest guys on the team. He does some explosive things. We tell him, ‘hey, go out and be an athlete.’ ” Downing that punt deep in St. Patrick territory was fairly crucial. The Shamrocks (0-2) trailed 28-14 at that juncture, and they were desperate to turn around the momentum. Three plays later, St. Patrick had to punt the ball away. And three possessions later, GBS essentially put the game away by scoring its fifth touchdown of the game. They went ahead 34-14 with 3:39 left to play. But the 6-foot, 160-pound Savino wasn’t quite done. He

RE_Sports_0909_West.indd 14

dazzled again — this time while playing in the defensive backfield — with a little over two minutes left, when he positively and unequivocally blew up a screen pass. Lined up in a bunch formation on the right side, the Shamrocks tried to ambush Savino by flooding the flat on a first-and-10 call at the GBS 40-yard line. Savino saw right through it. First, he fended off a block. And then, he bulldozed in and wrapped up St. Patrick receiver Xavier Saldana behind the line of scrimmage for a four-yard loss. “We worked on defending that play all week,” said Savino. “And so, when I saw them in that formation, it was built into my head that the play was coming. “I was able to bust through and make a play.” “A great read by Anthony,” said Schoenwetter. “He showed great timing, great strength.” Savino’s first mark on this game came on the opening play, when he fielded a kick in stride, turned on the jets and returned it 46 yards to set up Glenbrook South’s first score (a two-yard run by sophomore tailback Andrew Gall). “That gave us a spark,” said Schoenwetter. A multi-sport athlete — hockey, lacrosse, soccer and baseball — growing up, Savino has found another gear on the football field. Doing speed training with TC Boost in the offseason has done just that. It has boosted Savino’s speed — and confidence. It also has helped to boast his enthusiasm for football. Junior year basically was a “red-shirt” season for Savino. After playing football as a freshman and sophomore, he decided to hang up his pads. Well, sort of. That decision didn’t stick. After Week Two of the 2016 season, he contacted Schoenwetter and made his way back to the team — and prepared exclusively for his senior season. “I stopped playing because I had lost interest in the game,” said Savino. “I also saw studies

that football was too dangerous. And at that time, I didn’t want to risk it. “But you can’t think about the risks,” he added. “I thought I might have regrets — if I didn’t come back to play.”

The solidly built 5-foot-10, 180-pound senior lined up at fullback and took 15 handoffs f rom quarterback Jeffery Chrones. He finished with 106 hard-earned yards, including a one-yard TD run late in the contest. “Whatever helps the team to Notable: So far, this season, running back has been a pretty be successful,” said Covington. fluid position for the Glenbrook “It doesn’t matter where I play.

out perfectly fine for me last year,” said Covington, who had been a running back prior to his junior season. “I thought that’s where I fit.” Credit Covington’s flexibility. With junior fullback Harry Panagakis out for the season with a knee injury and fellow junior Jack Jerfita sidelined with an illness after rushing for 97 yards and two touchdowns in the season-opening win over Urban Prep/Englewood, the Titans needed someone to step up. And step up in a hurry. “Our running backs coach, Travis Myers, did an awesome job of getting Jalen ready,” said Schoenwetter. Covington, who missed the season opener due to the practice rule, wound up being a difference maker. His 23-yard run helped to set up a seven-yard TD run by sophomore tailback Andrew

Gall (20 carries, 90 yards, 2 TDs) with 8:06 left in the second quarter. Chrones turned in solid play at quarterback. He completed 9 of 14 passes for 134 yards and put the Titans ahead 14-0 by tossing a perfect 18-yard touchdown strike to senior tight end Brandon Streb with 2:15 left in the first quarter. “We’re trying to get Brandon more involved,” the GBS coach said. Chrones’ second TD throw — also 18 yards — went to senior wideout Ben Hides with 4:22 left in the third quarter. The 3rd-and18 conversion gave GBS a 28-14 advantage. It was a well-conceived play. Hides (3 catches, 51 yards) went into motion and darted to the right corner of the end zone before cradling in a perfect spiral from Chrones.

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

SUNDAY BREAKFAST

Life as a candidate a juggling act for Biss High School in Indiana: mathematics. He ended up commuting to Indiana University to take 12 advanced courses. “I was obsessed with mathematics,” Biss says, adding some of the math students in his classes were homeowners and had spouses. A 17-year-old Biss tutored a 24-year-old in the latter’s house. “We became good friends,” Biss says. Biss earned a bachelor’s degree at Harvard University and a doctorate in mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before becoming a member of the University of Chicago’s mathematics faculty at the age of 25. Biss’ technique was Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL), whereby his students were presented with

he book, Juggling for the Complete Klutz, came with three beanbags. State Sen. Daniel Biss (9th district) — an Evanstonian since 2006, a former state representative (17th district) and a Democratic gubernatorial candidate — received it as a gift from his grandmother. But Biss did not have to report it to comply with the Ethics in Government Act. He was 13. “I became a fairly serious juggler,” recalls the 40-year-old, sitting across from me on a bench outside Sarkis Café in Evanston on a sunny Sunday morning. “I ended up juggling balls, clubs, flaming torches. I juggled at a local circus [in Indiana] a couple of times as a kid. “Juggling and politics,” he adds with a smile, “are not dissimilar.” The busy, nattily attired man, who had ordered coffee and a gourmet omelet, informs me of his plans for the rest of the day: meet with others later in the morning; drive to Springfield for a session to address a public-school funding plan. The nature of the night before? The complete opposite. Biss, his wife, Karin, and their two boys (Elliot, 9, and Theodore, 7) hit a beach to relax and observe meteor showers. “We stayed there for about an hour,” Biss says. “Time with my kids has been precious since I announced my candidacy for the Democratic nomination for governor [on March 20 — exactly a year before the Democratic primary]. “Kids digging holes in the sand … what a wonderful sight. Kids, at times, can be complicated, but they’re also loving and insightful and fun, always fun, to be around. Elliot is a passionate reader. He told me one day, ‘I figured out the problem with the Harry Potter books — the male characters always end up more important than the female charac-

RE_Sports_0909_West.indd 18

ters.’ Then he said, ‘I don’t like that.’ ” What Elliot’s father, the son of musicians and the brother of noted

scripts of definitions and theorems and attempted the prove the results. They then presented the

proofs to their classmates, who critiqued the work under the supervision of Biss. “By allowing the students to teach and explain in front of the class, they developed a deeper level of knowledge,” Biss says. “It was rewarding for me to see a class develop cohesion through IBL.” After spending several years in the classroom and attaining the position of assistant professor of mathematics, Biss turned his attention to a field that had more to do with people than it had to do with numbers. Politics called. “I felt an urge to get involved with what was going on in our community,” says Biss, whose state senate district includes Evanston, Glencoe, Glenview, Golf, Morton Grove, Northbrook, Northfield, Skokie, Wilmette and Winnetka. “I started showing up at meetings, knocking on doors, talking to people, listening. I fell in love with the political arena.” One of his most rewarding moments as an elected official occurred during his term as a state representative (201113). He championed groundbreaking legislation, giving private-sector workers access to retirement savings accounts through their workplace and making Illinois the first state in the country to enact such a program. “There were 2.5 million workers in Illinois without a retirement plan, meaning most of them would have to rely only on Social Security and enter poverty after retiring,” Biss says. “The initiative was backed by both parties, at the state and national levels, but later died at both levels. I kept at it and felt strongly about it. Not all will join the program and benefit from it, but at least it’s an option now.” Biss is concerned about the shrinking middle class; retirement security is one way to rebuild it. “People are incredibly hungry to turn Illinois around, and that’s one

of the reasons I’m running for governor,” Biss says. “People and businesses are leaving our state; our state has become a wnational punch line. I want to change that perception. And a way to do that, or at least start the process, is by saying, ‘Let’s

I started showing up at meetings, knocking on doors, talking to people, listening. I fell in love with the political arena. — State Sen. Daniel Biss get it together and let’s come together.’ ” Before deciding to run for the Democratic nomination for Governor of Illinois, Biss sat down with his wife and children for lunch at home and made two lists with input from all. One described the good things that could come from running, and the other described the potential bad things. One of the fears on the bad side: “See less of Daddy.” But the good outnumbered the bad for the former college math professor. Biss was all-in, not all-integers. “My family means so much to me, and I felt it was important to get together with all of them on that day in December,” Biss says. “My wife has been great from the beginning. Intelligent, a desire for social justice, an appreciation for the arts, fun to be around — she has all of those qualities. If I’m considering something involving my campaign, I discuss it with her. I value her feedback and the way she sees things. “She often opens my eyes to what else is out there, presents a broader perspective. That’s a gift.”
