Village Hall doors to be restored



Winnetka woman gets to heart of the matter By Holly Marihugh


udy Meikle likes to take someone else’s hand, often a person she barely knows, and place it on her heart.

The 63-year-old Winnetkan has the heart of a 21-year-old hero beating inside her chest. That hero was Corporal Benjamin S. Kopp, a decorated Army Ranger wounded in

Afghanistan in 2009, who gave life at the moment of his death. July 20 marks the sixth anniversary of Ben’s heart beating for Judy. “It’s a miracle,” Judy says about her transplant. “By living with someone else’s organ, you are allowing part of that person to live on. So I don’t know of a better tribute to someone than to have his heart beating inside you. Or for the donor’s family to know that part of their son,

father, mother, brother, cousin, friend, or whoever, lives on in another person. “That’s a miracle. There’s no doubt about it.” The intersection and then crossroads of Judy and Ben’s lives took this direction: Judy was diagnosed seven years ago with a heart condition, non-compaction syndrome, Continues on page 12

excited North Shore fans. Like this year, the Evans Scholars Foundation — which provides college tuition for caddies — will receive significant money from the tournament’s proceeds. Of course, the inaugural event had its pitfalls. Torrential rains on Sunday meant the BMW Championship was forced to end on Monday, a day later than expected. “It was like you’re running a marathon and then having to go an extra two miles. The challenge is you’re trying to get that extra day of volunteers,” recalls Marsh. Even before that, a problem emerged that no one anticipated. “We were not ready for the level of phone calls. When I say it was ringing every 30 seconds, I kid you not,” Martin says. So a few changes will be implemented this year. A volunteer staff of women members will help answer phones (the signup sheet was filled in three days). Better signage and seating (including bucket chairs) will greet spectators. More parking will be available, and additional Metra trains will be added for drop-off at Lake Forest’s two train stations.

Military members will enjoy their own outpost at the 8th green. The driving range has been expanded. It’s hard to underestimate the importance of having hosted the tournament before. “We had no playbook for an event that size,” Marsh says. Adds Martin, “There’s so much more we’re comfortable with this time.” Both know they and their dedicated staff face 14-hour days that week in September, but they can’t wait. The adrenaline carries them through. And for Marsh, the knowledge that he can avoid being a TV personality is a blessing. Last time, he faced a live interview at 5:30 a.m. The questions were not in the order he had been told. “I froze. I stumbled through it. They cut me off, thank God,” he says. “They’re not asking me this time.” Enjoy the weekend.

VILLAGE HALL Cont. from pg 1 a third to remove and install the doors. The project was presented previously at a February 17 Village Council meeting, where the trustees agreed upon Historic Surfaces to restore the wood and Strata Contractors to remove and install the doors. At that time, questions were raised why the Village was not hiring local firm The Bellows Shoppe to address the hardware, instead of Wilmette Hardware. Megan Pierce, assistant to the village manager, explained that since February staff sought and received a bid from The Bellows but found the bid was insufficiently detailed. While The Bellows bid was about $1,700 less than Wilmette Hardware’s, Pierce recommended that the Village Council go with Wilmette Hardware. Trustee Stuart McCrary noted his preference to go with a local shop. “I don’t understand why we aren’t giving it any consideration when [The Bellows Shoppe] is a local company and they do great work and it’s less expensive than the other bid we have,” he said. Pierce explained that the Village asked The Bellows to submit a line-by-line summary so that they could compare it to Wilmette Hardware’s bid but The Bellows was not responsive. “It was hard to tell if they understood the full scope of the project,” Pierce said. Trustee Scott Meyers feared that hiring The Bellows would

burden Village staff since their lack of responsiveness could be a sign that they are not up to this scale of work. Trustee Carole Fessler also expressed regret that The Bellows Shoppe may not be a good choice. “In my heart I would love to have it go to The Bellows Shoppe, but my head says that on behalf of the village we need to be hiring the most professional people for this type of job,” she said. The Village Council voted 4-1 to approve a contract with Historic Surfaces, Strata Contractors and Wilmette Hardware. Trustee McCrary voted against the contract. The project is expected to begin this summer for completion before next winter.

HEART Cont. from page 1

condolences, and she also relayed the vital message to the grieving mom that her friend, Judy, needed a healthy heart. In this case, Ben’s family was able to request that Judy be the recipient. “When I read Maria’s message,” Jill says, “I called her immediately and basically got Judy’s people in touch with Ben’s doctors. This whole string of events was miraculous, including, of course, that Ben’s heart was a match for Judy.” The next thing Judy knew, a nurse called, telling her to show up pronto at Northwestern Memorial Hospital downtown. Now almost six years later, Judy confidently says: “I’ve had no signs of rejection. I got out of the hospital in nine days and the record is eight days.” “I got to feel Ben’s heart actually beating in Judy’s chest, and I believe that his heart never stopped beating,” Jill remembers.

“It was removed from him and kept alive until it was put in her just hours later. Judy is not shy about letting people feel her heart. It’s very special.” Judy and Jill spent the first New Year’s Eve together, ringing in January 1, 2010 with Ben’s heart. Every Mother’s Day, Judy calls Jill first and then both Ben’s grandmother and great-grandmother, who at 94 answers with, “Oh, it’s my eldest great-grandchild!” On Judy’s 60th birthday three years ago, the cousins who made it all possible, Maria and Jill, threw her a party and sliced up a cake that read, “Young at Heart.” “Ben’s memory is kept alive by everyone who’s living thanks to him,” Judy says. “Organ donation is not just helping one person. It helps that person’s family, their neighbors, their pets, their coworkers. It touches so many people.”

which she was born with. The diagnosis came to light when she acquired an unending cold that was misdiagnosed as pneumonia. “It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest,” she says. “There were no surgical options other than transplant. At some point, I would have died. Even the fact that it was not discovered until I was in my late 50s is unusual.” On the other side of the planet in Afghanistan, according to published accounts, Ben was involved in heavy firefight alongside fellow soldiers, taking part in Operation Enduring Freedom. He was critically wounded on July 10, 2009, when a bullet reportedly pierced his leg and secondary femoral artery. Clinging to life, Ben was rushed to a hospital nearby for surgery, transported through Landstuhl Regional

Medical Center in Germany, and then was ultimately transferred to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. In his hospital bed, the soldier was encircled by tubes and wires. Over the next few days, life slipped away from him and he was declared brain-dead, according to Jill Stephenson, Ben’s mother, of Rosemount, Minn. The miracle began unfolding. “My good friend Maria Burud is Jill’s first cousin,” Judy says. Maria knew that Judy couldn’t live without a new heart, and then she read in her cousin Jill’s prayer blog that Ben was dying and his organs were going to people waiting for transplants. During a meeting with Ben’s doctors, Jill was told that she could designate a recipient for any of her son’s major organs as long as the person was on the official transplant list. Maria reached out to Jill with

Board Youth Director, Marc Raymond, Lake Forest Club General Manager and Dr. Magdalene Kalb of the Lake Forest Club camp committee presented the inaugural Lake Forest Club camp donation to SEDOL Executive Director Ann Subry and SEDOL Foundation Chairman David Raye recently. This past winter, Lake Forest Club’s youth director organized a camp committee to help with the hiring of a new camp director and planning of Shark Day Camp. The camp philanthropy project raised enough money with donations from members to send four children with special needs to a SEDOL summer camp. SEDOL is the special education district of Lake County.

Summer Party geared to help find cure for cancer By joanna brown


ebbie Greenhill of Highland Park has felt the sting of loss when friends and neighbors died of cancer. But she also knows the satisfaction of victory when friends beat the disease. It has, therefore, been her pleasure to work with the Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem at Highland Park Hospital organize the 3rd annual Be Part of the Cure Summer Party. The July 31 event benefits the NorthShore Kellogg Cancer Center at Highland Park Hospital, part of the NorthShore Research Institute. “Cancer will touch every life in some way or another,” said Greenhill, who serves as co-chair of the Summer Party with Debbie Kramer of Northbrook. “Our greatest goal is to make people

more aware of the cancer center. In the training they provide and the research that is happening there, we’ve come a long way.” The Summer Party will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 31 at Grainger in Lake Forest. Guests will enjoy food, music and a silent auction on the wooded property. Videos and speakers will show attendees about the work of the Kellogg Cancer Center and its patient-centered approach to healthcare, including research, treatment, and education for nurses to improve patient experiences. “The field of medicine is changing so much now that we have to be there — and we have to believe,” added Kramer. “As outsiders, the only thing we can do is give our time and money and put it in the hands of people who know what to do with it.” As members of the Auxiliary

Board, Greenhill and Kramer have learned about Kellogg’s areas of research. Greenhill was most impressed with a new scanner that helps healthcare providers more easily find the patient’s vein for treatment without the discomfort of poking, while Kramer cited the use of DNA mapping

to tailor cancer treatments more specifically to the patient. As Kramer’s son is just finishing medical school, she said, “I’m eager to support research and the patients. When I can get up in the morning and feel that my life has purpose, that means the world to me.”

How important was spice? We’re taught in grade school that it was an expensive, granular product in high demand in the ancient world and Europe during the Middle Ages. But consider this: Scholars estimate that around 1,000 tons of pepper alone, and 1,000 tons of other common spices, were imported into Western Europe every year during the Late Middle Ages. To put that in perspective, a 2015 Toyota Camry weighs less than two tons. Chef Sunil Kumar By Simon Murray


And all of those combine in his Aloo Gobhi dish to form a unique, satisfying flavor. “It’s very popular in India,” says Kumar. “I grew up with this [dish].” While Kumar used to enjoy it with ghee (clarified butter), butter, and cashews — making it creamy and heavy — he now makes it much lighter. Like everything else on the menu, it’s light, vegan, and can be made gluten free. Kumar immigrated to the United States in 1990 and has since owned four or five restaurants, primarily in Connecticut. He may agree wholeheartedly with the poet William Cowper, who coined a cliché that can be attributed inside and out the Marigold Maison kitchen. “Variety’s the very spice of life,” he wrote, “that gives it all its flavor.” Marigold Maison is at 2535 Waukegan Rd. in Bannockburn.

North Shorts S

ummer is the coldest season. This irony hit home while having lunch in a popular restaurant that could’ve been in Glencoe, but let’s not name names. It could’ve been in Lake Forest, and might well have been in Winnetka, but actually was in....well, doesn’t matter.

Musings by Mike Lubow All that matters is that it was about 62 degrees in there, while the thermometer recorded 85 degrees out in the world on that sunny day. Most patrons during this lunch were in lightweight attire. Guys wore T-shirts. A few had shorts and flip-flops. And then there

were the “girls in their summer dresses,” always a pleasant sight, and also the title to one of American literature’s most memorable short stories (check the collected Irwin Shaw). The diners experienced core temperatures roughly equal to that of their iced tea.

Same thing happens in movie theaters. On a warm day or night, bare-legged and bare-armed popcorn crunchers sit in an auditorium under vents blowing out air that feels like it’s in the 50-something range. If this were January, that same auditorium would be heated to

around 70, while people would be wearing turtlenecks. Somebody once said the coldest winter you’ll ever spend is a summer in San Francisco. Well, there’s no geographic limit to that old observation. In the North Shore restaurant, there was a frankly unacceptable

chill in the air, while pedestrians outside the windows walked past, sweating in the summer sun. Thermostat-happy over-compensation is a cold, hard fact during this time of year. And there’s not much you can do about it. Except, when you go someplace indoors, take a sweater.

re-DefIne, nOt re-DesIGn! Staged Homes Professionals® provide both buyers and sellers a variety of “concierge services”—though it’s statistically proven that Staged Homes® sell faster and for more money than unstaged homes, did you know that as a home buyer, the services of an ASP® are also helpful in making the most of your new home? Here are just a few of the reasons to consider professionally staging your home when it’s time to list it on the market. You never get a second chance to make a first impression! Home staging professionals help you ensure that your home’s first impression on potential buyers will be the very best. By creating a room design that is neutral and open to interpretation, buyers are better able to view your home and “mentally move in”, creating an emotional connection that will help your house move quickly and at its highest possible value. An objective eye lends to a competitive sale! How you live in a home is completely different from how you sell a home. The professional home stager is able to look at your home objectively in a way that you, your friends and your family cannot—after all, you’ve lived there for years and have many happy memories associated with the rooms. Your buyers, however, don’t have that history—that’ll be theirs to make, when they make an offer. When your house is on the market, it’s absolutely critical to create rooms with aesthetically pleasing focal points, direct the flow of traffic between rooms and generate an overall ambience that promotes each room as an oasis of calm, inviting buyers to not think of the property as “your house”, but instead, to see it as “their home”. Color, art and room themes—what’s really important? There’s a reason we trust the services of trained professionals—when you cut corners, you always take a risk. Just as you wouldn’t trust a janitor to perform surgery, you should remember that home sales and Home Staging® are professions like any other, and that by enlisting the services of a trained professional, you’ve shown prospective home buyers how serious you are about the piece of real estate you’re listing. While your friend or family member may indeed have a good “eye” for home design, ask yourself if you’d be willing to keep your home on the market longer, or settle for a lesser offer than your home is worth, just to save a few pennies in having it professionally staged. To get a top-notch home sale, you must be willing to invest in top-notch service!

Good as gold Highland Park High School graduate Goldstein keeps getting better and better BY KEVIN REITERMAN,


here’s a gigantic M on the back of Jason Goldstein’s green and gold jersey. Biggest M you’ll ever see on a baseball uniform. The Madison Mallards, one of the proud and long-time members of the Northwoods League, seemingly like to do things in a big way. This Wisconsin summer collegiate league team likes to make a splash. Thus, it’s no wonder the Mallards jumped at the golden opportunity to bring in one of college baseball’s best catchers: Jason Goldstein. The ex-Highland Park High School star was drafted in the 17th round of the recent MLB FirstYear Player Draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers. But he turned down good money from the Dodgers to keep his amateur status intact for another year. The 6-foot, 210-pound receiver is in his second tour with the Mallards. “I told them (the Mallards) that I wanted to come back, and they took me back with open arms,” Goldstein said. The University of Illinois standout, who played in the illustrious Cape Cod League last summer, is coming off a banner collegiate season. He not only earned firstteam All-Big Ten honors and second-team All-Region recognition but he also was placed on the Johnny Bench Award Watch (best catcher in NCAA Division I baseball) in early May. Just imagine having your named written in the same sentence with the legendary Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame catcher. Goldstein, who wound up not winning the award, likely only shrugged when the Watch List was announced. In fact, while being interviewed after the MallardsKenosha Kingfish game on June 25, he wasn’t even aware that he had made All-Region. “I’m not on Twitter,” he said. “I really don’t pay attention to that kind of stuff.” But people surely are making a fuss over him. He’s caught the eye of Dodgers General Manager Andrew Friedman.

For the most part, historic Simmons Field — former home of the Kenosha Comets of the AllAmerican Girls Professional Baseball League in the 1940s — is something of a baseball paradise. But the lights at this newly renovated park aren’t the brightest. “Fastballs at 90 miles-per-hour looked like they were coming in at 120 miles-per-hour,” said Goldstein, referring to the pitches thrown by Mallards starter A.J. Bogucki. “I didn’t have any trouble seeing the ball when I was hitting. But catching … “ Goldstein came out of the game after five innings and missed a (second) chance to face Kingfish closer Brett Shimanovsky, a former teammate and key member of the HPHS 2012 team, in the ninth inning. “I faced him (on June 20) and I hit a line drive at his head,” said Goldstein, with just a slight smile. “A slider down the middle. Fortunately, he got out of the way.” Highland Park High School grad Jason Goldstein gets ready to fire down to second base during a recent Madison Mallards-Kenosha Shimanovsky, a left-handed Kingfish game.

Pulp nonfiction

Kreb provided the ‘juice’ from outside hitter slot for Ramblers BY DAN SHALIN,


hen it comes to measurables like individual statistics, team victories and playoff runs, recent Loyola Academy graduate Connor Kreb is certainly among the top volleyball players in Ramblers history. But it’s Kreb’s intangibles, specifically his leadership and motivation techniques, that truly illustrate the outside hitter’s value to the program. The 6-foot-3, 155-pound Kreb finished the recently completed season with a 2.29 serve-receiver passer rating and a team-high 366 kills, which was the second highest single-season total in head coach Lionel Ebeling’s 11years in charge. Kreb was a two-time Chicago Catholic League All-Conference selection and, along with classmates and fellow captains Jakub Mazurek and Jack Talaga, helped guide the Ramblers to three straight sectional finals. “(In 2015) Connor had one of the best seasons ever for an outside hitter at Loyola, and that’s saying something because we’ve had a lot of guys who have gone on to play in college,” said Ebeling, who mentioned players like David Wieczorek, Reis Foster, Chris Bulava and Pat Barry. Ebeling continued: “Connor led us in attempts, and he took care of business with a lot of kills. He didn’t have the same thunderous boom that (Mazurek) had, but it was not too far off. He also brought it with intensity. He was the one you’d see celebrating. He led us emotionally.” Kreb’s emotion during games resulted simply from the joy of earning another point or winning a set or match. But his leadership at practice was much more calculated. Midway through the 2015 campaign, Kreb and Talaga felt the Ramblers were playing below expectations. The team, which finished 32-17, was winning matches, but on several occasions required three sets in order to

college, like student government or Panhellenic Council. He will attend Vanderbilt, where he plans to have a double major in economics and either public policy or political science. He also is considering playing for the school’s club volleyball team. Does leadership simply come naturally for Kreb? “No, it would be cocky to say that,” he said. “In volleyball, I think I just wanted to be a leader for those guys. I wanted to be the person they looked to in tight games. That was one of the important things for me this year.”

Connor Kreb (No. 4) was one of the mainstays for the Loyola Academy boys volleyball team this past spring. PHOTOGRAPHY BY joel lerner

vanquish inferior opponents. Something had to be done. Kreb texted Ebeling with a few ideas about methods he felt could help the team raise its game. The coach was happy to let Kreb and the other captains implement these programs, which included individual goalsetting at every practice and the captains handing out an award for the hardest worker at practices and games. “(When this comes from the captains) it means 10 times more than anything I can ever say. They listen to me because they have to. They listen to Connor because they want to,” Ebeling said.

Kreb said the idea for setting goals was something he learned during a volleyball camp at Stanford a few years earlier. “It was a way to keep people more focused, energized and motivated,” said Kreb, a resident of Mt. Prospect. “We started doing it at the beginning of each practice, all setting a goal, and two hours later talking about whether or not you reached that goal.” Kreb added: “In the big games, it can be one point that makes the difference. So, working on something as specific as the form of your digging or passing, can make all the difference in close

games. It was a way to strive for continued improvement.” Kreb said he believed the goal-setting was initially successful, though admitted it tailed off late in the spring when the game schedule limited the team’s practice time and the grind of the season necessitated lighter workouts. More successful, Kreb said, was the program he and the captains implemented, where they awarded a gallon or half gallon of orange juice after practices and games. “It was a daily reward we gave out to the one person who metaphorically ‘brought the juice,’ ”

Kreb said. “I actually had seen this done on a YouTube video, a documentary about the University of Pennsylvania lacrosse team. I thought it was something that could really pick us up.” At Loyola Academy, Kreb’s commitment to leadership and his interest in others’ improvement, extended beyond the volleyball court. He was a member of the President’s Advisory Committee, a small group of students that regularly met with school president Rev. Patrick McGrath to discuss issues affecting student life. Kreb said he plans to seek out leadership opportunities in

Notable: Kreb plays his summer volleyball with the Skokie-based D1 Volleyball Club. His 18 Green finished 29th in the 2015 USA Volleyball Boys’ Junior National Championships in New Orleans last week. The other roster members include Loyola’s Christian Inciong, Jakub Mazureck and Jack Talaga; Glenbrook North’s Johnny Bear and Kevin Lee; Evanston’s Jeremy Levin and Ethan Ross; St. Viator’s Matthew Drab and Ryan Schiller; and New Trier’s Peter Kirie. … The club’s top finish was turned in by the 15 Green team, which came in 15th in the Club Division. The roster includes New Trier’s Jack Brown and Loyola Academy’s Joey Strzalka. … The 16 Green squad, which features Glenbrook North’s Kamil Barabas, Matthew Biebrach, Chase Bolan, Clark Reinfranck and Daniel Voronov; Glenbrook South’s Nicolas Cavallaro and Myles Engles; Loyola’s Matthew Bryne; and Northside Prep’s Artur Kozlowski, ended up 17th in the 16 Open Division. … And The 17 Green squad finished 31st in the Open Division. That roster includes Glenbrook North’s Joe Ferber and Danny Martens; Evanston’s Isaac Sageman, Charlie Knepper and Evan Lindley; Maine South’s Declan Cannon; Notre Dame’s Conor O’Neill and Tyler Prokuski; Loyola’s Noah Regnier; and New Trier’s Michael Tamkin.

Doctor dedicated to solving eating issues

By Simon Murray


hen Dr. Julie Friedman first met Susan McClanahan, chief executive officer of Insight Behavioral Health Centers, it was over a lunch similar to the one we’re having. McClanahan, who oversees Insight’s eating disorder treatment centers in Chicagoland, was impressed with Dr. Friedman’s private practice in Northbrook. “I want to know what you’re doing,” she told Dr. Friedman, a clinical health psychologist, over the phone. The two met soon after. It turns out that what Dr. Friedman was doing was nothing short of revolutionary, especially when it came to her binge eating and obese patients. Not only was she treating each case differently, but her approach to solving their ongoing problems didn’t target food intake alone. She was much more concerned with other factors, such as stress and sleep deprivation. Revolutionary thinking, at the time. That was two years ago. She’s now the director of Insight’s binge eating and weight management programs, assisting patients f rom all over the country. Seated in a booth at Deerfield’s Eggshell Café, Dr. Friedman orders a spinach omelet with fruit and wheat toast on the side. The Deerfield doctor, mother of two girls, and avid SiriusXM Doctor Radio listener has a bone to pick, a soap box to stand on. Her gym this morning was playing an episode

of “Teen Mom”— the MTV series that charts the ongoing struggles of pregnant high school students — and in that particular episode, one of the adults was giving a young mother —and, inadvertently, the show’s horde of young viewers — some advice. "Stick to a 1,200-calorie diet," she tells her, somewhat innocuously, as a way to get rid of unwanted baby fat. Nobody disagrees. Dr. Friedman’s gripe is with that advice, and that silence. “I was thinking of all the teenagers at home, maybe even struggling with t h e i r weight, who are watching this,” she says, finally able to express what she’s been mulling over in her head. “This is the messaging that little girls get, and that’s just crazy because it’s so wrong. “Because of course, what’s our interpretation if someone can’t eat 1,200 calories a day? It’s some failure of theirs from a character perspective. It feeds into weight stigma.” The first week Dr. Friedman started at Insight, the American Medical Association (AMA), the nation’s largest physician organization, voted at its annual meeting to recognize obesity as a medical disease. The landmark decision was hailed almost im-

in the gut. This treatment has a biological and physiological bent to it—not just lets talk about your childhood and your emotions. For some, their underlying circuitry is wired the same way as a drug addict — but one who seeks and receives a “high” from food. The reward circuitry in their brains is wired to need more and more food to get the same effect — a feeling of fullness — that is pushing binge eaters to overeat. — Dr. Julie The residents in Dr. Friedman’s CORE group —which Friedman stands for Compulsive Overeating Recovery Effort — come sciously. It’s estimated that up from all walks of life, and varying to 30 million people of all ages ages.

mediately as a controversial move. On the third day of work, Dr. Friedman went on the morning show at Fox 32, a local news station, and faced detractors of the ruling head on. They were still under the impression that obesity was primarily a discipline problem that individuals could address themselves. “There are people” even today,

notes Dr. Friedman, “who still object to classifying obesity as a medical disease.” But that doesn’t change the fact that Americans have a complex, sometimes dangerous relationship with food. Many of these disorders are linked with mental illness and go unrecognized and undiagnosed — whether consciously or uncon-
