Car heists keep rising as cops urge ‘lock up!’ BY JULIE KEMP PICK DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

T

he 4th of July weekend turned out to be a boon for car burglars on the North Shore. Nearly 30 vehicles were broken into between June 26 and July 3 from Wilmette to Lake Bluff – despite frequent warnings from police urging residents to lock up. And on July 7 on the west side of Wilmette alone, 22 unlocked cars were burglarized and one was stolen. In Highland Park, there were 13 car burglaries, two stolen cars and five criminal trespass incidents between June 26 and July 3. Highland Park Deputy Police Chief Timothy Wilinski said all of the incidents occurred in unlocked cars, and that keys had been left inside the two stolen cars. Highland Park Police Chief Paul Shafer said, “These are not forced entries. If people would lock their cars, the opportunity

t’s hard to miss the farm-totable trend in restaurants these days, but how about a farm-totable meal prepared entirely from items purchased at our own North Shore farmers markets? DailyNorthShore sent reporters on assignment to local farmers markets to come up with a delicious meal comprised entirely of farmers markets’ pickings. Farmers markets from Wilmette to Northbrook to Lake Bluff offer a huge variety of fresh vegetables, fruits and meats, as well as prepared foods and baked goods, sufficient to prepare one meal, if not a few others throughout the week. Living in the bread basket certainly has its perks. And lest you think the meals were repetitive, each reporter came up with a distinct menu, drawing on individual inspiration as well as advice from market vendors. Take JWC Media intern Madeline Karnes’ vegetarian meal. A crunchy French baguette at Glencoe’s French Market inspired Karnes to make bruschetta, but she took a unique twist on the dish by adding fresh asparagus,

his summer, we’re completing phase one of a major modernization project. At the heart of our newly remodeled state-of-the-art facility will be a more personal approach to maternal care. Mothers and babies will stay in the same room and be treated by the same medical team. The enlarged delivery rooms will allow family members to visit and stay with the new mom and baby. We’re creating larger, contemporary, comfortable spaces throughout—from patient rooms to waiting rooms—and providing expanded capabilities and the latest technology. Watch for more changes coming to Highland Park Hospital in 2018, including a renovated Emergency Department and new Adolescent Psychiatry Inpatient Unit. At NorthShore, we’re committed to helping you be ready for what’s next.

Highwood juices up for Bloody Mary Fest concoct their creations, courtesy of Bloody Mary Fest sponsors Master of Mixes and Van Gogh Vodka. The winners of Bloody Mary Fest will be rewarded with a trophy, media recognition, and, of course, bragging rights until next year’s fest. “Highwood’s Annual Bloody Mary Fest brings the entire community together and attracts thousands of visitors from all over Chicagoland, including Wisconsin and Indiana,” said Eric Falberg, president of Celebrate Highwood and a Bloody Mary Fest judge. “We love tasting all the amazing flavors and seeing the elaborate garnishes people come up with. It truly is a must-see event.” While the beverages may be the stars of the show, the event also will include live entertainment, a gourmet market, and delicious food selections.

We just really need people’s cooperation and concern.” Shafer advised residents to lock their vehicles and to remove valuables.  “It is the perfect example of a crime of opportunity,” he added. DailyNorthShore checked in with some of the other North Shore police departments. In Wilmette, police responded to a residence on the 700 block of Lacrosse Avenue about a car burglary in progress at 4:49 a.m. on July 7, according to a police press release. When police arrived the offenders fled in three vehicles at top speed. At around 8 a.m. that morning, a car was reported stolen on the 700 block of Lamon Avenue. The car, which had been unlocked with the key fob left inside, was one of the vehicles that had fled the scene when the police arrived at Lacrosse Avenue. It was later recovered in Chicago. Skokie police found another vehicle used to flee the Wilmette police abandoned at the intersection of Oakton Avenue and Skokie Boulevard. That car had been stolen in Indiana. Further investigation revealed that 22 unlocked cars were

burglarized in west Wilmette that morning. In one instance three men’s suits were stolen and in another a set of house keys was taken. A resident’s surveillance video showed a group of people checking car doors that were parked on the street and in driveways to see if they were unlocked while two vehicles followed the group, the press release stated. On the 600 block of Lacrosse Avenue, police also found a car in the middle of the street that was stolen from another jurisdiction in Lake County. In Lake Forest, LFPD Deputy Police Chief R.D. Copeland said there were about six burglary/ CTMV (Criminal Trespass to a Motor Vehicle) incidents and two stolen cars between June 26 and July 3. All of the vehicles were unlocked. “We also found two stolen cars (one from Glencoe stolen on the 28th) and one stolen from Highland Park,” he added. The keys were inside the vehicles when the cars were stolen. Copeland said different areas were targeted, including Middle Fork subdivision, Deerpath Road, and South Greenbay/Waveland Road.

Hornstein explained that the Winnetka Police Department’s latest effort to educate the public on the importance of locking their vehicles included handing out postcard reminders at the 4th of July fireworks display that read:

Ginger’s closes, makes way for SLYCE BY JULIE KEMP PICK DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

F

irst, the good news: Ginger’s famous thin-crust pizza will still be available next door at Alex’s Washington Gardens on Green Bay Road in Highwood. The bad news is that customers will no longer be able to enjoy the pizza, burgers and drinks inside the Irish pub or on the patio at Ginger’s. “We no longer wanted to try running a pub, so when someone was willing to buy Ginger’s from us, we took that opportunity,” said Jim Stoecker, owner. Ginger’s officially closed its doors at 254 Green Bay Road on June 29. Stoecker said the new owners are SLYCE Coal Fired Pizza Company from Wauconda. “SLYCE is bringing that concept to this building, and they’re going to do some reconstruction,” he said. He added that he doesn’t know the details of their plans to open. Now will Stoecker be able to

focus all of his efforts next door at Alex’s Washington Gardens? “Yes, and on having a personal life. I took four days off in a year,” he added. Stoecker wasn’t exaggerating. Three years ago, Stoecker founded a global gathering of redheads filled with food, music and family festivities, aptly named Redhead Days, in Highwood.  While on a European bike trip, he learned that the Redhead Days organization in Breda, the Netherlands, was looking for worldwide affiliates, so he signed up. Shortly after last year’s June two-day event with over 2,000 redheads, he opened Ginger’s in the Bridie McKenna building complete with a new pizza oven. The man knows pizza. “I call myself a pizza anthropologist because I know enough to teach a college course about pizza,” Stoecker told DailyNorthShore in September 2016. He has been making the same thin-crust pizza next door at Alex’s Washington Gardens since

2007. Stoecker purchased Alex’s from Alex Scornavacco, whose parents Tony and Ellen created the recipe for their popular restaurant, Scornavocco’s, in 1944. Stoecker said Alex’s Washington Gardens has been the same for 35 years. “Washington Gardens has always been a preservation effort,” said Stoecker. “It’s a throwback place and we’re just keeping it the same great food it’s always been.” Stoecker added that Alex’s Washington Gardens will honor Ginger’s gift certificates. The Third Annual Redhead Days was held June 10-11, and Ginger’s closed at the end of the month, just a few days shy of the pub’s first anniversary. Now Stoecker will have some free time to pursue his cycling hobby. “I’m leaving for Europe later this month to cycle, and I’ll be gone for a few weeks,” he said. Stoecker is looking forward to his vacation, and he is sure to meet many gingers along the way.

can sales - are still reliable money generators. “This tax is horrible for the consumer, but it’s particularly bad for landscapers and laborers who tend to buy canned sodas and energy drinks at the mini-mart or 7-Eleven,” said O’Neil. O’Neil said he and other Cook County restaurant owners had attempted to stock pile four months worth of soda supplies at a nearby warehouse prior to the tax start date of July 1, enabling them to maintain existing prices for the short term. Those plans were derailed, said O’Neil, when the Illinois Department of Revenue announced plans to audit them. “I understand that sugar is a problem, and there is more diabetes and child obesity today than ever before, but to pass this tax through to the consumer is wrong,” said O’Neil. O’Neil said restaurants are also battling steadily rising food costs, but that he refuses to compromise on quality or raise prices to a level that alienates customers. “Soda is not our main source

of income, but I think other businesses will be hit by this,” said O’Neil. “We’re hoping we can make up our losses in liquor sales. Mark Stein, owner of vending machine supplier Mark Vend Co., located in Northbrook, described the Cook County soda tax as an accounting and computer systems “nightmare.” The tax would be charged upfront to restaurants and retailers by distributors and subsequently passed along to consumers at a point of sale. If the ordinance goes through, Mark Vend Co. has six months to change the advertised pricing on the 1,000 vending machines he owns in the Chicago area. Under the terms of the new tax, a 12-ounce can of soda would increase by $.15; a 20-ounce bottle goes up by $.28. “We know there’ll be a hit to our sales but we don’t know what to expect,” said Stein. “Our products are largely in work places, healthcare centers and educational institutions, so it’s not like a grocery store purchase…we just don’t know yet.”

LOVE & MARRIAGE

Woo absurdly and carry a big … pickax

Joanna Brown

P

lease, someone hide my remote before the fall premieres come to television. I must not succumb to another

season of The Bachelor. I criticized the ABC Network’s Bachelor franchise back in February, as well as myself — for being

sucked into the completely unrealistic reality series. It’s a competition among 25 women wearing amazing clothes and living in a luxury oceanside mansion, all in pursuit of a man allegedly ready for something as serious as matrimony. It makes for great television, I argued, because the completely artificial, overly produced environment is an easy space in which to fall in love. But it’s a terrible example for young women looking forward to genuine romantic relationships. None of the candidates on The Bachelor has career obligations or family responsibilities while appearing on the show. They have unlimited budgets and nothing but time to spend wooing their target. There is nothing to indicate how these couples might field the curveballs that a real marriage will send their way. But to be fair (I convinced myself ), I programmed my DVR to record the current season of The Bachelorette and poured a

glass of red wine before I watched 31 men make their first impression on the supposed woman of their dreams. She’s a well-educated professional and carried herself with a lot of class on the last season of The Bachelor, so my hopes were high. In their favor, most of the gentlemen stepped out of their cars wearing wide smiles, ties and coats, which they promptly buttoned to greet the bachelorette. Many held her hands and hugged her. And then they let their freak flags fly. A few danced with her. One arrived in a penguin costume. Another wielded a pickax in one hand and — while showing off his massive biceps — used the tool to break the ice block he held in the other hand. One carried plane tickets to Las Vegas in his breast pocket so they could elope. An aspiring drummer arrived with a marching band and regaled the bachelorette with small talk via drumming puns.

It was painful to watch — and hear. And yet it might be the most realistic encounter of the season. It’s not that different from attending a friend’s birthday party or summer barbeque, where you might have watched someone enter a room and then orchestrate a casual conversation at the bar. These parties just aren’t as well lit as the setting of an oceanside mansion is on TV. In all of these scenarios, science tells us that first impressions are as important as your mother always said they were. BusinessInsider.com compiled a list of nine things people decide within seconds of meeting you, according to studies from reputable sources. Among them, Princeton University researchers found that trustworthiness is determined in that first meeting. And Loyola Marymount University researchers found that perceived intellect is established by whether or not you look someone in the eye

when you meet them. Bald men are perceived as more dominant, and women with tattoos are perceived as less attractive and more promiscuous. And a British study out of Durham University found that a person’s gait — the stride, for example, a bachelor on the show uses to walk from the limo to the spot where the bachelorette and camera crew are waiting for him — is similarly revealing. People with looser gaits were considered extroverts and adventurous, while those with shortened, clipped paces were seen as neurotic. The beauty of the DVR is that you can go back mid-season to see if your favorite suitor had a gait in the season premiere that matched the personality he’s showing on camera. And if your spouse catches you doing that, tell him you’re doing it for science. I’ll back you up. Email comments to Joanna@ northshoreweeknd.com

Nearly 500 guests toured five lovely homes on the North Shore presented by The Winnetka Club. Housewalk 2017 Chair Marla Bagan and Club President Gloria Gaschler, as well as many generous volunteers, brought this annual fundraiser to life, raising money for New Trier Township High School seniors. In addition, each homeowner designated a charity to receive funds from the proceeds.

CAPTAIN ALL-AMERICA

Koch — a four-year marvel for Loyola Academy’s boys lacrosse team — takes his skills to Marquette BY BILL MCLEAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

K

yle Koch was all set to become a Glenbrook South freshman in the fall of 2013 — until a lacrosse game a few months earlier made him pivot and head east toward Wilmette. “I went to the [IHSLA] state championship game between Loyola Academy and New Trier,” recalls Koch, a Glenview resident who had moved from Arizona to Illinois before he started eighth grade. “I was in the stands [at New Trier’s Northfield campus], with my father [ Jeff ] and with my younger brother, Connor. Loyola won. Great game. “I turned to my father and said, ‘I have to go to Loyola.’ ” Koch went to Loyola Academy. And he put together quite a career, playing varsity for four seasons and earning US Lacrosse AllAmerica status from 2015-17. Koch, a defenseman with sprinter’s speed, and the Ramblers faced New Trier’s Trevians in three state finals (2014, 2016 and 2017). LA topped NT 10-7 for the ’16 state championship. The men’s lacrosse program at Marquette University — Koch’s next stop as a student-athlete — is certainly thankful for the audible Koch called in that bleacher seat on a sunny day four years ago. The 5-foot-9, 170-pounder ranked among the Ramblers’ leaders in caused turnovers and played a major role in helping LA (17-8 overall, 17-1 vs. Illinois teams) finish with a state-low — and state-record-tying — 2.71 goalsagainst average this past spring. The Team ONE lacrosse club player hadn’t scored more than one goal in a varsity game until he struck for a pair of tallies in a 15-6 defeat of Glenbrook North on May 16. The second goal flew from his stick’s webbing from about 16 yards out and rose like a heater from a pitcher as it neared the Spartans’ goalie. Koch’s top-shelf fastball turned a sluggish outing for the Ramblers

into a stirring one. “Easily one of the best players I’ve ever been around,” says DePauw University-bound Quinn Roddy, a 2017 All-America attackman and another recent LA graduate. “His work ethic is incredible. Kyle is physical, fast and strong, with great stick skills. That combination … it’s deadly.” Koch was worried about a short life expectancy during his days as a football player in Arizona. Opponents were big; he was not. The pedestrian pace of play in baseball annoyed him, and in basketball he aced tests on defense but struggled at the other end of the court. “I was a fifth-grader, maybe a sixth-grader, when I tried lacrosse,” says Koch [pronounced COOK]. “It was fun, and right away I enjoyed the fast pace. I’m guessing there could not have been more than 100 lacrosse kids in the whole state of Arizona when I started playing it.” Koch figured he wouldn’t make the varsity lax squad as a freshman after coming down with the flu during the week of tryouts. But his speed turned the coaches’ heads, and there it was — his name — on the online list of Ramblers who had made the varsity in the spring of 2014. “Shocked. I was shocked,” he says. One of LA’s star defensemen in ’14 was Lake Forest resident Will Nowesnick, who will be a senior at Salisbury (Maryland) University in the fall. The 6-5, 215-pounder caused 44 turnovers for the NCAA Division III champion Sea Gulls (22-1) in 2017. Koch watched and learned and then started his string of three straight All-America seasons the next spring. “I was small until my sophomore year,” says Koch, a captain in his junior and senior seasons. “You know what I figured out? That lifting can actually help you

the spring and attended a Cubs game at Wrigley Field for the first time in his life. As soon as he received an eyeful of the field and the scoreboard and the ivy, the awestruck kid in him made another appearance at another well-attended athletic contest. “I don’t know much about baseball, and it hasn’t interested him,” he admits. “But I enjoyed that experience, everything about it. I had three or four hot dogs. The best part of the experience? Walking inside the ballpark and seeing that field, the colors, for the first time.” Koch is a city boy, and if a Chicago college or university with a good academic reputation fielded a men’s lacrosse team, he would have seriously looked into attending it. Marquette’s home, Milwaukee, has a big enough city feel to it for Koch, who will major in biomedical sciences (pre-med) and play lacrosse for a program that went 8-8 in 2017. Besides, Milwaukee is where Koch’s parent’s, Jeff and Stacy, met. But before he hits the books and the Golden Eagles’ field, he’ll continue to conduct private lacrosse lessons for kids with former LA teammate Luca Lazzaretto, an All-American defenseman and a member of the Class of 2018. The former mesmerized spectator now gets to enthrall future LA lax players. “We like to joke around and have fun with the kids, while teaching them,” says Koch, whose younger sister, Kelsey, made LA’s girls varsity lacrosse team as a freshman middie in the spring. THE LONG STICK OF THE LAW: Kyle Koch recently completed a phenomenal career at Loyola “They’re fun to be around, and Academy. The defenseman was a four-year starter and three-time All-American.

TOUR DE FORCE Asmussen heads to the University of Miami — and then to the Air Force — after putting together admirable season with Scouts BY BILL MCLEAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

M

organ Asmussen heard more than the usual greeting — “Hi, Morgan” — on her way to classes at Lake Forest High School in the spring. She no longer was Morgan Asmussen, Eclipse Select soccer club player, in 2017. She was Morgan Asmussen, LFHS senior outside back and first-year varsity starter. Classmates and other students had certainly heard she could play soccer well at a high level from 2014-16, but they hadn’t seen her stymie forwards with her relentlessness or ignite transitions with her vision and technical skills. Eclipse Select trains and competes at venues nowhere near Lake Forest and Lake Bluff, Asmussen’s hometown. The local standout wowed local onlookers in ’17 and heard this or variations of this — “Great game, Morgan” — during school hours. “Once she decided to play high school soccer, she gave it her all,” Scouts coach Ty Stuckslager says. “Morgan joined our program with the intent to make the team better and to make herself a better player. Not all club players do that; she did that. “She was grateful for the experience,” the coach adds. “We had some amazing crowds — big crowds like those at the Pepsi Showdown — at the end of our season (12-4-1, with the last home loss occurring in a Class 3A regional final against Lake Zurich HS).” Asmussen played alongside center-back and DePaul University-bound Gwen Walker, one of the best in the state at her position. Walker had played full-time club soccer for Eclipse Select rival FC United before opting to commit to the Scouts at the start of her sophomore year. The two had taken one class together, French — as freshmen. Asmussen and Walker became good amies as seniors and teammates. “I enjoyed getting to know her and competing with her,” says the 5-foot-4 Asmussen, a University of Miami (Florida) recruit who arrived in Coral Gables earlier

parents are awesome, and so is she. She’s funny, fun to be around, and she’s super down-to-earth. “The Air Force is something that’s important to Morgan,” she adds. “The commitment she has for it is a strong one.” For now, Asmussen hopes to soar as a promising candidate for playing time this fall in the eyes of Hurricanes’ coach MaryFrances Monroe and her assistants. Who knows? Monroe might one day deploy a couple of backs with Lake County ties; Lake Forest native Hannah Marwede — a 6-foot Hurricanes defender and another Eclipse Select product — will be a sophomore for the Atlantic Coast Conference team in the fall. “It’s pretty humid down here; 90-degree-plus temperatures just the other day,” says the speedy Asmussen, who loves to run in between soccer practices and matches. “Big change. But I’m getting used to this kind of heat, day by day. Our coaches focus a lot on fitness and conditioning. Our head coach believes if we’re fit we’re going to give ourselves chances to stay in close games and score last-minute goals. There has also been an emphasis on technical aspects of the game, like making sure our passes — even the little ones — go right to the feet.” Stuckslager sees Asmussen facing the challenges of Division I soccer with fearlessness and a ‘MOR’ BETTER BLUE: Morgan Asmussen (No. 15) proved to be a force to be reckoned with during her one season with the Scouts.

INSIDE THE PRESS BOX

Johnson earns all-league honors for Bucknell T hings, at the moment, are pretty cool for Luke. Luke Johnson, a Lake Forest High School grad, is spending the summer in Martha’s Vineyard, playing for the Sharks in the Futures Collegiate Baseball League of New England. And right now, Johnson is playing at a high level. After 90 at-bats, he’s hitting .300 with two home runs and 14 runs batted in. He also has swiped five bases. Johnson went into the summer with plenty of confidence. He turned in an award-winning season for Bucknell University in the spring. The junior shortstop claimed All-Patriot League Second-Team honors after hitting .282 with three home runs, 24 runs and 27 RBIs. Johnson (6-foot, 175 pounds) fared well in big moments, hitting .310 with runners in scoring position. And he was very good at hitting left-handers. Batting in the middle of the order, he hit .419 against southpaws. Not known for power, Johnson’s first collegiate home run was a grand slam against Army on April 9. Johnson has made 77 starts during his three seasons with the Bison.

CIRCLING THE BASES College Baseball St. Louis University: Brett Shimanovsky recently put the finishing touches on a solid career. The ex-Highland Park High School standout proved to be a valuable left arm in the bullpen for SLU. He went 1-1 with 2.63 ERA during his senior season. He had 29 strikeouts in 27.1 innings. He allowed only 22 hits. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder also was effective as a junior (3-2, 3.03 ERA, 29.2 IP, 35 hits, 30 Ks, 13 BBs). And the same goes for his sophomore season (5-1, 2.45 ERA, 51.1 IP, 45 hits, 33 Ks, 12 BBs) and freshman season (0-0, 3.38, 24 IP, 24 hits, 27 Ks, 11 BBs). Denison: Senior right-hander Connor Hanrahan, a Lake Forest High School graduate, capped his career at Denison University with another solid season. This past spring, the 6-4, 200-pounder led his team in appearances (20) and saves (3) for

doubles. Lake Forest Academy’s Liza Tarr also contributed to Middlebury’s season. The sophomore catcher hit .242 with four doubles.

the second year in a row. His earned run average was 3.38. Hanrahan had 10 saves during his four-year stint at Denison, while he made 69 appearances (2nd all-time at the school). Meanwhile, Loyola Academy grad Mikey Rivera made four starts (3-2 record) and worked 39 innings for the Big Red (2912), while ex-Rambler Liam McKeough saw limited action during his freshman season. Xavier University: His batting average doesn’t pop off the page. But that fielding percentage does. Loyola Academy grad Matt Fallon, a centerfielder who just completed his senior season at Xavier, started all 61 games for the Musketeers (34-27) and played errorless baseball (164 putouts, 5 assists). At the plate, Fallon hit .235

with eight doubles, two home runs, 36 runs and 24 RBIs. He also swiped seven bases in nine attempts. The Glenview resident, who played two seasons at Black Hawk College, also made 61 starts during the 2016 season at Xavier and made just one error (.994 fielding percentage). And Fallon was outstanding in postseason play during his junior campaign. First, he made the Big East all-tournament team, and he followed that up with all-tourney honors in the Nashville Regional. In seven postseason games, he hit .360 (9-for-25) with seven runs. BETWEEN INNINGS College Softball Denison University: A couple of ex-New Trier players — soph-

omore Laura Bagan and junior Lauren Secaras — were rewarded for their efforts. Both were named to the 2017 National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-Central Region Team. Bagan earned second-team honors, while Secaras received third-team recognition. New Trier’s Ryan Lee, meanwhile, joined Bagan and Secaras on the 2017 All-North Coast Athletic Conference Team. Bagan, an outfielder, finished the season hitting .387 with nine doubles, seven home runs and 35 RBIs. Secaras, who also made allregion as a freshman, hit a teambest .407 in 42 starts. She also had team-highs in hits (59), home runs (8), total bases (91) and RBIs (39). Lee, a senior infielder, wound

up hitting .331 with 28 runs, 14 doubles and 24 RBIs. The trio helped Denison complete the season with a 29-16 record. Linn University: Freshman Shayle Arenson made a quick adjustment to the college game. This past spring, the New Trier grad had 30 hits in 112 at-bats (.268) for Linn University. The second baseman finished with a .331 on-base percentage for the Fighting Knights (26-22). Middlebury College: Allison Quigley helped Middlebury College to a 17-14-1 season. The right-hander, a New Trier grad, finished the 2017 season with 13 complete games. The junior ended up 8-9 with a 2.27 earned run average. Quigley also was productive at the plate, hitting .317 with five

DROP SHOTS Tournament Tennis Midwest Closed: Highland Park High School grad Jacob Edelchik, who claimed the 2017 IHSA singles title, went 6-1 in singles play in the recent USTA Midwest Closed Championships in Indianapolis. His lone setback on June 29 was a 7-5, 7-5 loss to Michigan’s Bill Duo in the quarterfinal round of the Boys’ 18 singles division. Duo went on to win the championship. In doubles action, Edelchik teamed with Anand Saluja of Wisconsin to earn runner-up honors. The duo fell 3-6, 7-6 (5), 10-8 (super tiebreaker) to the Michigan tandem of Kweisi Kenyatte and Jack Winkler in the final. Girls’ 16s: W innetka’s Cameron Compall placed fourth at the Midwest Closed. She won her first five singles matches in the Girls’ 16s bracket before falling to Soren Leichter 6-3, 6-2 in the semifinal round. Then she dropped a 6-3, 6-1 decision to Whitney King in the third-place match. Boys’ 16s:  Highland Park’s Jeremy Learner teamed with Natan Spear of Chicago and made it to the Round of 16 of the doubles competition at the Midwest Closed. Learner finished 3-2 in singles play. CHIP SHOTS Tournament Golf Lake Forest’s Lowell Weil, III ended up with a top-three finish in the MAJGT Kenosha Classic on July 7. The 17-year-old shot a 145 (70-75) on the Kenosha Country Club course, three strokes behind Kenosha’s Mark Laken and one stroke in back of Jack Blair of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Highland Park’s Joseph Harrigan (class of 2018) came in seventh (148). In girls play at the Kenosha Classic, Kimberly Stafford of Lake Forest placed seventh (160), while Winnetka’s Tatum Koehn finished in a tie for 11th (170).

calls to notify us of its interest in giving students an opportunity to experience a service project,” says Rosenberg, who earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Michigan and her master’s degree in social work at Loyola University in Chicago. “We then provide the school with a list of project

choices for each class and work with the school’s administration and teachers to customize a program. What we do helps a school meet two [empathy and compassion] of Illinois’ state standards in education. “The kids,” she adds, “aren’t just doing their part in helping others feel good; they’re also experienc-

ing the wonderful feeling of giving. You feel better about yourself when you give.” Some schools, I learn, chose to cancel Valentine’s Day and Halloween parties in order to use that time for TKC projects. Rosenberg’s breakfast order arrives. It’s a parfait in a fancy fountain glass, with a strawberry on top of a layer of granola, sliced bananas and yogurt. Her eyes widen as soon at the treat hits the table. “It looks like I ordered an ice cream sundae for breakfast, doesn’t it?” a smiling Rosenberg says. Rosenberg and her husband, Jeff (another H P H S graduate), have three children: Michael, 22; Sam, 21; and Ilana, 19. They spent their first date with Jim Carrey — and a bunch of other comedy-club patrons, when Carrey, the headliner that night, wasn’t wellknown. Ilana was a serious thirdgrader when she and her classmates completed a TKC project. They made bookmarks, with various textures, for students at the Hadley Institute for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Win-

netka. What the class was reading at the time: The Story of My Life, by Helen Keller. Years later Ilana volunteered at a homeless shelter in California, spent a month with an orphanage in Costa Rica and served as president of the social service club at New Trier High School. Her big brother, Michael, was a student at McKenzie Elementary in Wilmette when The Kindness Connection planted its first seed in a classroom. Ernie — TKC co-founder Roth’s son — attended the school at the same time. Their moms had become good friends. Rosenberg, a founding board member at The Kindness Connection, was named executive director of the organization in 2014. “I watched kids at a school [St. Thomas] in Chicago work on Kindness Kits one day, and it amazed me, impressed me,” says Rosenberg, whose sister, Audrey Pam (the project design and operations coordinator at TKC), was the nonprofit’s first employee. “Those kids put their hearts into every project. You should have seen how eager and enthusiastic they were. “What also thrills me about my position at The Kindness Connection is every opportunity I get to meet and work with many wonderful people. All of them are focused on kindness and making their communities better places. “How fortunate am I?” The Kindness Connection, (847) 807-9340, is located at 119 Central Park Avenue in Wilmette.
