Owen Seeks Village Manager Job Don Owen, Glenview’s deputy village manager since 2007, is one of the candidates for the job of the man who promoted him into his current position, departing Village Manager Todd Hileman.

Company strikes gold twice On 50th anniversary, Mullarkey Distributors named ‘Business of the Year’ BY STEVE SADIN DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

A

fter 50 years and three generations of one family selling beverages on the North Shore and Chicago’s North Side, Joseph Mullarkey Distributors is Glenview’s business of the year. Mullarkey Distributors received the honor December 20 by the Glenview Chamber of Commerce after a nomination and selection process, according to Chamber Executive Director Betsy Baer. Kevin Mullarkey, president and one of three sons of founder Joseph Mullarkey active in the business, said the recognition is particularly heartwarming as the company celebrates a major milestone. “We are very proud of this recognition in our 50th anniversary year,” said Mullarkey. “Getting it in our 50th year makes it even more gratifying.” The tools for sustained growth are basic. “We’ve built our reputation on quality of service and relationships with our customers,” said Mullarkey. The initial nomination for the award came from Glenview Chamber of Commerce President Jim Martin. He said the Mullarkey family has been

involved in both the business and greater community for all of those 50 years. “They have been Chamber members all that time as well as good business citizens as well with family members and staff members serving in leadership positions within the Chamber and other civic organizations,” said Martin. The business is a wholesaler

acquiring beverages—primarily package and draught beers but others too—and selling them to some of the largest and smallest users. He said the company services customers from the North Side of Chicago to the Wisconsin State Line and from Interstate 94 east. “We sell to Jewel Osco and Costco and to the smallest retailer and tavern,” said Mullarkey.

When Joseph Mullarkey started the company in 1966, it had a five percent market share in its early days, according to Kevin Mullarkey. He said that barometer has grown to 60 percent. For the first 25 years, Mullarkey Distributing was run by Joseph Mullarkey. Kevin Mullarkey has been actively working there for 42 years, including his

days as a schoolboy doing basic tasks. “All of us started in entrylevel positions in high school and college,” said Kevin Mullarkey. “It helps you understand what people go through in their dayto-day jobs. It (also) gives us an understanding of the community.” Continued on PG 7

NEWS

Northbrook 2017: Downtown’s future, trains, elections teps will be taken to shape the future of downtown Northbrook in 2017, and the Federal Railroad Administration will decide whether to allow a nearly two-mile freight holding track in Northbrook and Glenview as part of an Amtrak expansion. After joint meetings between the Village Board of Trustees and the Plan Commission, Northbrook is getting closer to adopting regulations to determine the face of the village’s central business district. Early in 2017, the Plan Commission will give a thorough review to a revised set of guidelines and report to the Village Board, according to a year-end letter from Village President Sandy Frum. Frum said she wants downtown more pedestrian friendly with developments like the 68 townhomes being built by the Deerfield-based Jacobs Companies. Tom Poupard, Northbrook director of development and planning services, introduced

form-based zoning as a possibility, which “regulates buildings rather than lots,” he said in September. “Every building on a certain street has the same setback rather than letting one put all the parking in the front. It brings uniformity to that street.” The FRA issued an environmental assessment in October suggesting a holding track be part of plans to add three daily round trips on Amtrak between Chicago and Milwaukee. A decision may come after January 15. Northbrook joined Glenview, Lake Forest and Deerfield opposing the plan less than two weeks after the FRA, Illinois Department of Transportation the Wisconsin Department of Transportation made it public. Before the FRA issued the assessment, Glenview officials had a pretty good idea there would be a holding track suggested, which Glenview Deputy Village Manager Don Owen labeled a “parking lot for trains” near Shermer Road between West Lake Avenue in Glenview and Techny Road in Northbrook.

He also said it would diminish property values. As a result of lobbying by Northbrook and the other towns, the FRA extended the time period for public comment from October 15 to January 15. The municipalities are demanding a more detailed environmental impact study to consider the effect on nearby property and the environment. Of particular concern in Northbrook is how long delays will be at grade crossings like Techny Road as the freights slow down and speed up because of time spent on the holding track. Frum said she wants a traffic study to specifically report the length of the delays. Residents of Northbrook Glenview School District 30 will decide whether to spend $36.3 million to rebuild Maple School replacing the 67-year-old structure when they go to the polls April 24. The Board of Education unanimously voted December 13 to put the referendum on the ballot. The Northbrook Village Board of Trustees will get two new members in 2017. Kathryn Ciesla, an incumbent, and Muriel Collison, Jason Han and Scott Bush are battling for the three available seats. Trustees Todd Heller and Michael Scolaro did not file for re-election.

JD’s Q & Brew smokes it low and slow BY STEVE SADIN DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

A

love affair with meat and craft beer turned Gary Shupak from a restaurant executive into an entrepreneur. Shupak founded JD’s Q & Brew in Arlington Heights more than three years ago and opened his second restaurant of the same name near the intersection of Pfingsten and Willow Roads in Glenview November 30. Prior to opening the first JD’s, he spent nearly a quarter century with the Levy Restaurant. “I love craft beer and I love meat,” said Shupak explaining his decision for the eatery’s style. “I’m a people person and I love to entertain.” When he found a location near Willow and Pfingsten, Shupak knew he had the right spot for his next restaurant. “Glenview is close enough but far enough away,” said Shupak. “It will help bring people from Glenview and Northbrook and all the businesses around Milwaukee (Avenue) and Sanders (Road).” Freshness is a hallmark of JD’s menu, according to Shupak. “Everything we do is fresh, the ribs, the sauces, all the sides,” said Shupak. “We put love into the Owner Gary Shupak and the BBQ crew Candido, Carolina and Javier at JD’s Q and Brew in Glenview.

He plans to have six on other craft brews in bottles. Some as Glenview and others come

from further away. For those who want national brands, they will be available too. Wine will be served as well. Shupak said ribs are the signature dish of Q & Brew but there are other traditional barbeque items on the menu like brisket, pulled pork, chicken and a turkey leg. There are also combination plates of different meats. “We offer them dry or wet with our own barbeque sauce,” said Shupak. The sauce is bottled and sold as a separate item. Another special dish is the brisket, which is smoked for 13½ hours and dry rubbed, according to Shupak. Along with the meats, people can order from among more than a dozen choices of side dishes, which include macaroni and cheese, baked beans, slaw and corn bread. “We make the corn bread fresh with real corn, corn meal and milk,” said Shupak “We get a nice brown shade to it.” With their food and drink, customers can enjoy sports or local news on the televisions in the bar. There will be music there too, according to Shupak. He said he expects a robust carry out business and hopes to do catering. JD’s Q & Brew is located at 2853 Pf ingsten Road, Glenview. 847-715-9557. jdsqandbrew.com.

Jaguar enters the SUV segment — and maintains cool-cat status

SHOWROOM STOPPER: Jordan Aron, president of Imperial Motors Jaguar in Lake Bluff, stands by a 2017 Jaguar F-PACE SUV.

A

2017 Jaguar F-PACE — Jaguar’s first entry in the medium-luxury SUV segment — rests on a showroom floor no more than 10 yards from Jordan Aron’s office at Imperial Motors Jaguar in Lake Bluff. Aron is envious of anybody who owns one. It’s a vehicle, after all, designed and engineered to offer the agility, responsiveness and refinement that Jaguar cars are renowned for, along with the exceptional dynamics and everyday versatility of an SUV. “It’s great to look at, and it took its styling cues from our other models, one being the F-TYPE [coupe],” says Aron, president of the dealership located at 150 Skokie Highway. (His father, Allen, holds the same title at

Imperial Motors Jaguar in Wilmette, which opened in 1953.) “It’s designed like a sports car,” the son adds. “Owners love them, because they’re unique and greatlooking and seat five comfortably. Others see the car and often ask the owner questions about it. They’re interested in it. They want to learn about it.” Fifty-five percent of all vehicles purchased in the U.S. are SUVs, Aron notes. Baby boomers and millennials like the space and high ride that SUVs offer, and the segment’s improvement in fuel economy makes them competitive with smaller automobiles, according to an Associated Press report in early January. Jaguar might be late to the game in the popular segment, but

it’s having an immediate impact. What’s not to like about an auto that marries sporty handling and sharp beauty with everyday practicality and efficiency? Another plus, particularly in the wintertime: The all-weather sports car features a torque-ondemand AWD system. The rear axle receives all of the engine torque when conditions are normal. When greater traction is needed, Jaguar Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) ensures that the right amount of torque is transferred to the front axle. It takes no more than a scant 165 milliseconds to complete the conveyance. It takes longer than that to blink an eye. The Drive Control and the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

system serve as other appealing elements of the Jaguar DNA. “There’s a lot of technology in the SUV, and its engine [a supercharged V6] is great,” Aron says. “The software is fresh, high-end. “The F-PACE,” he adds, “is the best of its kind in the [luxury] SUV market.” The price of the rookie SUV starts from $42,390 for V6 gas engines and from $40,990 for 4-cyl diesel engines. Its large luggage compartment measures 33.5 cubic feet. Among FPACE’s other amenities are its InControl infotainment center (including a 10.2-inch capacitive touch screen), an advanced chassis and suspension system and Adaptive LED headlamps. The V6 engine delivers a

0-60-mph performance in 5.1 seconds, providing yet another piece of evidence that the brand’s SUV falls right in line with Jaguar’s longtime vision: To produce beautiful, fast cars that are desired the world over. Standing a few feet from an F-PACE on a cold, snowy December morning in the Imperial Motors showroom in Lake Bluff, Aron takes inventory. Not of auto parts, but of his job’s perks. “I get to deal with a real cool clientele,” he says, exuding a sincere appreciation for serving as a North Shore consumer-automobile matchmaker. “I’m around luxury cars and wonderful people every day. The Jaguar brand is a lot of fun, with a great

heritage. It’s a unique brand. “And I get to provide jobs. We have 30 employees here, and many of them have been with us for many years.” Jaguar and its brother, Land Rover — known mostly for producing models with tremendous off-road capability — employ 32,000 people and sell vehicles in 170 countries. Jaguar/Land Rover is represented by more than 330 independently operated retail outlets in the U.S. For more information about the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE, visit imperialmotors.com, jaguarusa.com and media.jaguar.com, or call Imperial Motors in Lake Bluff, (847) 615-0606, or in Wilmette, (847) 256-0606.

GYMNASTICS HAS A HOLD ON HER Dedicated, hard-working Kruger finds her groove on the uneven bars BY BILL MCLEAN , SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

K

ylie Kruger does not have to look far for inspiration. All the Glenbrook South junior gymnast has to do is look around her house, where her grandmother, Sandy, resides. Grandma Sandy has undergone four open-heart surgeries. Four. Talk about toughness and resiliency. “She’s a fighter,” Kruger, a third-year varsity member, said after the Chester Jones Evanston Invitational on Jan. 7. “An amazing tennis player, with a great serve.” Kruger’s best weapon as a recreational tennis player is her twohanded backhand. But the only grip that mattered for Kruger last weekend was the one she used to work her uneven bars routine. The Titan found her groove while negotiating the apparatus, scoring a seventh-place 8.65. The mark ranked second among teammates to Glenbrook South senior star Hannah Hartley (second place, 9.275). “Nobody works harder than Kylie does,” Titans girls gymnastics coach Steve Gale said. “She’s a workhorse every day in practice. When she’s doing a cardio workout [in the school’s fitness center], she’s an animal, a machine. I’ve seen her, while I’m getting in a workout. At practices, Kylie likes to say to me, ‘I’m throwing [a double-back dismount on bars]. Get in there.’ “I get in there for her, as a spotter.” It was on bars where Kruger made an immediate impact at a sectional meet in her freshman season. Gale slotted Kruger to perform first on bars for the Titans. The Titans’ first event at the sectional in 2015? Bars. Kruger nailed the routine, setting an ideal tone for her teammates and helping the squad secure the meet title and automatic state berth. Moments later, Kruger experienced darkness. Her teammates had swarmed her for hearty embraces. Brief suffocation never felt so good.

summer in California. She cleared eight feet last spring. A double-digit feat appears achievable in 2017. But her sights now are set on the big gymnastics meets in late January and in early February, as well as doing what she can to help the Titans set a program scoring record. The mark sits at 145.55; this year’s season-high score thus far is 145.375. Life after gymnastics for Kruger could find her in a classroom, as a special education teacher. As a peer mentor at Glenbrook South, she has guided special education students in PE classes. Kruger pays them undivided attention and espouses the benefits of teamwork. Teamwork talk — from the consummate teammate. Somewhere in the Kruger household in Glenview is a proud grandma, bursting with wholehearted pride.

STEADY AND SECURE: Glenbrook South’s Kylie Kruger performs her bars routine at the Evanston Invite. She placed seventh in the event. PHOTOGRAPHY BY GEORGE PFOERTNER.

Glenbrook South finished eighth at the state meet more than a week later. “An amazing teammate, and Kylie is so nice,” said senior captain Katie Wahl, who is nursing a couple of injuries. “She’s a hard worker, and she’s dedicated. Sometimes our coach gives us a window to show up for practice, like between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. It’s not unusual for Kyle to beat Gale to practice. “Her double-back dismount on bars,” Wahl added, “is more consistent this year; she’s finding the floor with her feet more, sticking her landings. And her

standing-back [on beam] … she doesn’t fall. She never falls. I’ve never seen her fall when she does her standing-back.” Kruger attributed the emphasis on repetition at her former club, Niles-based Viking. Gymnasts had to successfully execute 10 straight standing-backs before moving on to the next drill, she noted. Kruger joined American Academy in Wheeling two months ago, just before the start of the high school season. Many of her American Academy cohorts competed at the Evanston Invite last weekend. In between Glenbrook South’s third

and fourth events, Kruger, with her hands on her knees, watched intently as an American Academy gymnast — competing for another school — performed a floor exercise. Kruger shouted encouraging words and cheered for the “opponent” throughout the routine. “Look at her,” Gale said. “Kylie is all about the sport of gymnastics, no matter who’s doing a routine. She’s intense and supportive, and if you were to tell her to have an easy workout, it wouldn’t happen. There’s never a bad day in gymnastics, as long as Kylie is around.”

Kruger finished 10th in the all-around (33.675) at last weekend’s 11-team invite. Her highest mark was 8.65 (bars), her lowest 8.075 (vault). Steady. The highlight of her 8.55 routine on beam was her save following a flip-flop series. The 5-foot-1 Kruger nearly fell off the log before righting herself nimbly and concentrating on her next move. In the spring, look up if you’re interested in seeing Kruger compete in her other sport, track and field. The Titan gave pole vaulting a try last spring and honed her launching game at an Olympic training center last

Notable: Titans senior Hannah Hartley topped the all-around field (37.7) at the Evanston Invite on Jan. 7 and finished in the top four in each of the four events. She silvered on beam (9.3) and on bars (9.275) and placed third on vault (9.7) and fourth on floor (9.425). Junior teammate Bebe Haramaras also excelled, bettering all on beam (9.475) and taking seventh in the all-around (35.325). Glenbrook South’s Sarah Healy added a fifth-place effort on vault (9.35). The Titans competed without freshman standout Jenna Hartley, who was sidelined with an injury, and finished third (140.15) to runner-up Maine South (142.6) and champion New Trier (145.7). Glenbrook North Spartans gymnast Brittany Ullrich finished ninth in the allaround (34.2), one spot ahead of teammate Kelly Lazar (33.9), at the Chester Jones Evanston Invite on Jan. 7. Katie Brownlee and Roxy Goldfarb also competed as all-arounders for Glenbrook North, which finished fourth (136.525) in the team standings.

oing to the … Wells. Jack Wells, that is. It was a sound strategy for Glenbrook South’s boys swimming and diving team in its meet against visiting New Trier on Jan. 6. Wells, a senior, swam on two of the Titans’ three victorious relays in the dual loss, touching out a Trevian at the end of the 200-yard medley relay. A Glenbrook South boys team had never gone 3-for-3 in relays against a New Trier squad. “Jack had a terrific weekend,” Titans coach Keith MacDonald said. Wells helped the Titans place third (2,757 power points) in the highly competitive Evanston Invitational on the next day. He swam for the runner-up 200 medley relay (1:36.56, with senior Sam Iida, sophomore Cameron Schulte and freshman Adam Zuiker); took care of the secondleg duty for the third-place 200 free relay (1:29.64, with Zuiker, Iida and senior Bryan Lee); and touched fifth in the 50 free (22.69). Iida — runner-up at state in

both the 200 IM and 500 free at state last winter — was sensational in the Evanston water on Jan. 7, clocking a meet-record 1:50.65 in the 200 IM, or more than five seconds faster than the runner-up’s time. Iida also finished runner-up in the 100 breaststroke (57.84). “Overall, the weekend was a success for us,” MacDonald added. Arrowhead High School (Hartland, Wisconsin) won the invite with a 2,888-point total, ahead of Stevenson (2,872). Glenbrook South heads north of the Illinois-Wisconsin border to face AHS again, as well as the reigning Wisconsin state champion, in a meet later this month. Glenbrook North: Spartans diver Ryan Cohn finished eighth (402.5 points) at the New Trier Winter Dive Classic on Jan. 7.

had a breakout meet at the Evanston Invite on Jan. 7, achieving season-best times in the 200 free (1:47.74, seventh place) and 100 free (49.94, seventh) events. “He has been training really well and putting in the work, so it was wonderful to see him hit season bests,” said Ramblers coach Mike Hengelmann, whose boys finished seventh (2,553 power points). “I was really impressed with how we swam. There was a lot of good competition with the 18 teams.” Danny McGowan motored to fifth place in the 500 free (4:47.11) for the Ramblers after taking sixth in the 200 free (1:47.67). Nathaniel Guenther added a sixth-place effort in the 100 breaststroke (1:02.1). Hengelmann praised the under-the-radar swims from Donovan Crowe (2:11.05 200 IM, 56.67 in the 100 butterfly) and captain Zach Holecek (relays). “Great leader, and he’s been steadily putting up good times,” Hengelmann said of Holecek.

leg of the victorious 200 medley relay (1:36.52) and touched third in the 200 free (1:44.5). Other Trevians on the relay were juniors Patrick Gridley and Ryan Gridley and senior Ryan Escasa. Patrick Gridley collected the team’s other gold when he sped to a 52.82 in the 100 back. Ryan Gridley silvered in the 200 IM (1:55.92) and in the 100 free (47.91), with Patrick Gridley coming in fourth (48.42) in the latter race. The Gridley brothers preceded Ean Vandergraaf and Scheinfeld in that 400 free relay. “Overall, the meet was OK for us,” Runkle said. “Coming out of winter break training, we’re a little beat up and sick, like everyone else. We had to deal with a little disappointment with the 200 free relay (disqualified), but the kids bounced back well from it.” NT diver Jack Connolly, meanwhile, competed off the home boards and placed 14th (351.55) at the Winter Dive Classic.

New Trier: It’s one of swimming’s most challenging doubles: swim in the 100-yard breaststroke and then serve as the anchor leg of the 400 free relay. The 100 breast is the penultimate race at meets. The 400 free relay is the last. New Trier junior Charlie Scheinfeld was a hit in both races at the Evanston Invite on Jan. 7, topping the field in the 100 breast (57.07) and helping the Trevians’ 400 free quartet earn runner-up honors (3:10.8). “He did a great job and showed a lot of toughness,” said NT boys swimming coach Josh Runkle, whose crew finished fifth (2,615 power points) at the talent-soaked 18-team meet. Scheinfeld also was busy — and successful — at the beginning Lake Forest HS: The Scouts of the meet. He swam the second placed 13th (2,217 power points)

at the 18-team Evanston Invite last weekend. Wyatt Foss earned the squad’s top finish, taking ninth in the 100 free (50.57). Teammate Kevin Donahue raced to season-best times in the 200 IM (2:033.88, 16th place) and 100 butterfly (55.11, 13th). Scouts Luke Lanigan and Ryan McKiernan each dropped another five seconds in the 500 free. Lanigan came in 26th with a 5:14.93, three spots ahead of McKiernan (5:19.01). “The boys swam well, and they continue to improve from their incredible hard work over the Christmas break,” Lake Forest coach Cindy Dell said. The team’s unsung hero was Zach Boveri, Dell noted. Boveri continued to improve as a breaststroker, finishing with a time of 1:07.64 in the 100 breast. LF’s top relay was its 200 free unit of Foss, anchor Donahue, Carlos Minetti and Jack McGlynn. The foursome placed 12th in 1:34.82. Jay Grieve, meanwhile, placed 16th (290.1) at the New Trier Dive Classic on Jan. 7.

WATCH OUT FOR WEHMAN Highly regarded junior returning to form for Loyola Academy girls basketball team BY KEVIN REITERMAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

S

he was forced to hit the pause button last season. So you can understand Lilly Wehman’s state of mind, when she finally got back on the court earlier this winter. Her adrenaline was racing at an alarming rate. And her turnovers were coming — just as rapidly. Loyola Academy head coach Jeremy Schoenecker loves Lilly Wehman’s game. Loves her potential. He always has. He always will. But even Schoenecker had to grimace a little at Wehman’s penchant for miscues. Wehman wasn’t being Wehman. “She really struggled in the first four or five games,” said the LA head coach. “Kept turning the ball over.” Finally, Schoenecker and his top assistant, Jon Wolfe, sat her down. They had a good talk. “She was trying to do too much. We told her to relax,” Schoenecker said. “We told her to play to her strengths.” And what’s nice now? Wehman got the message. “She’s getting back to normal Lilly,” said Schoenecker. There are indications that LA’s prized 6-foot-2 junior, who missed the entire 2015-16 high school season rehabbing an ACL injury, is starting to break out. Wehman certainly showed glimpses of her “old self ” in a 66-46 win at Niles West in late December. On one possession in the second quarter, Wehman got the ball out on top, put the ball on the floor and beat her defender with a spin move. It was a big-time play. Athletic. Only one problem: the basket was wiped off when she was called for double dribble. It was a borderline call. Then, on LA’s very next trip down court, Wehman positioned herself inside, grabbed a long rebound off a missed three-point attempt and immediately converted the And One into a threepoint play. That — right there — got Schoenecker excited. “She had been playing very

Perfect, here you go Lilly, do your job.” As the starting point guard, Martinez is excited to see Wehman’s game come around. “With the ACL injury, you couldn’t blame her for having a slow start,” said Martinez. “Still, she was playing OK. She just wasn’t the Lilly we know. “But in the last few games, she’s really stepped up,” the guard added. “She’s one of our main players. She’s going to be a big factor for us.” Wehman definitely came up big on Jan. 7. She tossed in 20 points in LA’s 56-26 victory over Batavia in the Fremd Shootout. She also had solid outings in the team’s four-game set at the Red Mountain Holiday Classic in Meza, Arizona over the winter break. Last season was a hard one for Wehman, who has been playing hoops since the third grade and who is destined to play at the collegiate level. She sustained her ACL injury — right leg — in a fall travel tournament in Milwaukee in late September and had successful surgery on Halloween. “The mental component was the difficult part,” said Wehman, who played significant minutes on varsity during her freshman campaign. “It was hard sitting on the bench and not playing. You’re itching to get out there.” Physically, she has no limitations. She’s pretty close to 100 percent. “The ACL injury was unfortunate. It’s hard for a player to miss a season,” said Schoenecker. “But here’s a player who has dedicated herself to basketball. And I feel like when she plays well, we play well.” ‘BALL!’: Lilly Wehman asks for the ball during Loyola’s game against Niles West earlier this season. PHOTO BY GEORGE PFOERTNER.

passive. Not wanting contact,” the coach said. “But tonight, she went hard for rebounds and attacked the rim. It was nice to see.” Wehman, who plays her club basketball with ALL IN Athletics, ended the game with solid numbers: 10 points, seven rebounds and three blocks. When Wehman is at her best, she can mess up an opponent’s

scouting report pretty good. Her ability to shoot the three — which she did in the opening quarter against Niles West — creates match-up problems. “I’m starting to get some threepointers to fall,” said Wehman, who hit two treys in LA’s 66-36 win over visiting Taft on Dec. 22. “Teams don’t think the tall girl is going to shoot the three,” she

added, with a smile. “Her ability to knock down a three,” said Schoenecker. “That’s an advantage for us.” Having a head for the game also helps. Wehman is instinctive on the court. That played out early in the fourth quarter against Niles West, when she scored on a combination play with sophomore point guard Julia Martinez.

Following a steal, Martinez hurriedly raced down court with the ball but was cut off from the basket by a Niles West defender. In a flash, Martinez made a jump stop, looked back and quickly fed a hockey-like drop pass to Wehman, who was filling the lane and asking for the ball. “I turned and saw Lilly,” said Martinez. “And I thought,

Notable: Loyola currently is rolling with a five-game win streak. With the victory over Batavia at the Fremd Shootout on Jan. 7, the Ramblers improved to 14-5 overall. They also beat Mather 70-7 at home on Jan. 4 and topped Evanston on the road 45-41 on Jan. 4. They went 2-2 in the recent Red Mountain Holiday Classic in Meza, Arizona.

Neveu thriving with his playwright stuff BY BILL MCLEAN ILLUSTRATION BY BARRY BLITT

rett Neveu caught the theater bug while wearing a donkey mask. Currently a playwright who teaches writing for the screen and stage at Northwestern University, he portrayed the Wise Donkey in the community theater production of The Patchwork Girl of Oz decades ago in Newton, Iowa. The play’s venue was a YMCA, and Neveu was a grade-school student at the time of his acting debut. “I liked the attention,” Neveu, no longer braying, recalls while sitting at a restaurant booth in The Lucky Platter in Evanston, his hometown since 2012. “The paper ran a photo of the cast. There I was, in my donkey costume. My parents [Kent and Margaret, who goes by “Cookie”] started taking me to shows at the ‘Y’ when I was in the fourth grade, and I remember thinking, This is different. I liked how a show made me feel. “I went backstage one day and noticed a neighbor of mine resting on a couch. He looked cool.” I want to know all about Newton, and the 46-year-old Neveu is more than willing to transform himself into Newton’s Welcome Wagon director, right there in the restaurant — 310 miles away from the county seat of Jasper County, Iowa. “Newton is home to Maytag,” Neveu says of the appliance company. “You’ve seen those Maytag commercials, haven’t you? The ones with the [idle] repairman? Well, the dog in them is named Newton. Not everybody notices that, but you do if you’re from Newton. It was a town of 15,000 when I grew up there; still is. It was a blue-collar town in the middle of farmland.”

Neveu’s order of two eggs sunny side up, with corn tortilla and a side of bacon, arrives. Our conversation shifts to his play, Her America (formerly Miss America), which stars Chicago and Broadway actress Kate Buddeke and made its world premiere at Greenhouse Theater Center in Chicago on Jan. 6. (The production’s run as part of Greenhouse’s Solo Celebration! Series runs through Feb. 12.) Buddeke — an award-winning actress featured in Eric LaRue, another play written by Neveu) — is Lori in Her America, a mystery/thriller set in a basement in the Midwest. Lori hides there and revisits her past, via relics in a steamer trunk, while chaos reigns upstairs. “In a way, it’s about Newton, the male-dominated blue-collar town I knew as a kid,” Neveu says. “It’s also about Christianity and ideas about how people should lead their lives. And it’s about control. “I wrote it for Kate.” Buddeke had clamored for years for Neveu to come up with a play for her. Whenever the two ran into other, Neveu said, ‘Hi,” and Buddeke said, “Where’s my play?” Tired of the reminders and the poking, Neveu wrote the play and handed it to Buddeke outside of a bar/restaurant on a summer night. A reading of the play was held at A Red Orchid Theatre in Chicago shortly thereafter. “It was too long,” Neveu says. “I rewrote it. Kate has made it hers [in rehearsals], which is what I wanted her to do. She changes words, and nine times out of 10, she’s totally right. I trust her; I have always trusted her. She is Broadway, hardcore, brilliant. Kate never holds back. What I have grown to expect from her when I work with her

is a challenge. She c h a l lenges playwrights, directors and herself. One big challenge — that’s Kate, and I mean that in a good way.” When Neveu was a theater major at the University of Iowa, he accepted challenges from James Finney, a theater professor at the school in Iowa City. The same professor in-

Brett Neveu troduced Neveu to the works of the late Harold Printer, an English playwright, screenwriter, director and actor. “[Finney] was influential, even

me a lot of questions like, ‘Why are you doing that?’ and, ‘What is your thinking behind that?’ My favorite playwright is Pinter because his writing is spare, with a lot of air. “My first production, The Last Barbeque, [performed in Las Vegas and later in Chicago] is ‘Pintery’.” Born in San Francisco before becoming a full-fledged Hawkeye, Neveu spent a year and a half at Playwrights’ Center in Minneapolis after graduating from college. He and his wife moved to Chicago, where he did plays in basements and puppet theater in the back of bars before becoming a re s i d e n t at Chicago Dramatists, a seedbed for emerging playwrights. “I stopped acting at the age of 22 or 23 and

concentrated on writing and storytelling,” says Neveu, a husband for nearly 25 years and the father of a though he was my professor for 10-year-old daughter, Lia. “I’m only five to six weeks because he obsessed with storytelling, with had a health issue,” says Neveu, the puzzle that is storytelling. My who met his future wife, Kristen, grandfather on my mom’s side at the college. “He liked to ask was a prospector in Texas who

sang. He was a storyteller, too. He died when I was about two years old. Maybe I got the arts gene from him.” Neveu has been commissioned by The Royal Court Theatre in London, Manhattan Theatre Club, Steppenwolf Theatre Company, The Goodman Theatre and Writers’ Theatre in Glencoe, among others. Some of his awards: the Marquee Award from Chicago Dramatists; the Ofner Prize for New Work; and an After Dark Award for Outstanding Musical (Old Town). Away from the stages, Neveu can be found singing for either a garage rock/punk band or for a country band, a group with undertones of pop and punk. Combing wares at estate sales is another one of his pastimes. “My mom and dad are into antiques,” Neveu says. “I recently bought a piano and a lithograph at an estate sale. The lithograph had been owned by a World War II vet, who put it up in his basement. The basement was probably his man cave, with a pool table and bar down there. The lithograph was of a boy fishing, with a girl behind him, and both were looking off into the distance. Kind of creepy. But I felt like I was rescuing it. The print is yellowish, probably because the vet and his buddies smoked when they were near it.” The playwright pauses. And then it hits me: Brett Neveu is in his storytelling mode, no longer just a man using a fork to lift his breakfast fare. His audience of one suddenly feels fortunate to be in the presence of an artist.
