New garden spot for food is in bloom


fter one strolls past the irises, ganders at the model trains and observes the butterflies at the Chicago Botanic Garden, a strong appetite and thirst can arise. In past years, visitors grabbed a tray at the Garden View Café and, after standing in line with fidgety children, munched on typical cafeteria food. But a recently completed $3 million renovation has changed the atmosphere — and the fare. A new wood-fired oven creates offerings from a Roasted Vegetable Calzone to a Ham & Cheese Flatbread. A range of salads, artfully presented, are available. For the kids? The Top Secret Mac & Cheese (that’s a perfect name for youngsters to bite on ordering it) includes butternut squash — Chef Boyardee it is not. The trays have been jettisoned; food is now delivered to tables. Booths have been added, along with a barista station. A map pinpoints the 150-mile radius where produce comes from (fruits and vegetables often are transported a few hundred yards from a nearby island). The blinds have been removed to enhance the beautiful view — after all, gazing at a garden is a little more uplifting than staring at a road. “This café is clearly part of the Botanic Garden, but that used to get lost as you walked in. It didn’t match the glorious look of the gardens,” explains Harriet Resnick, vice president of visitor experience and business development. “People use the Botanic Garden as their personal health club. The ingredients are part of our mission to help them lead healthy lives.” Adds chef Michael Kingsley, “We don’t serve fountain soda anymore. We’re trying to show awareness

Since the café was designed back when the Botanic Garden drew 500,000 visitors a year (1 million arrived in 2013), it also was expanded into a nearby room.

Resnick hopes couples and others will be persuaded to show up at the Glencoe spot simply for the dining itself. “This is a destination restaurant on the North Shore,” she says. “You sit on the deck, and you feel like you’re on vacation.” Enjoy the weekend.

■ by bill mclean R.I.P. basement. Real estate brokers and others in the field along the North Shore no longer use the word when they discuss or show what is featured below ground level of a luxury home listed at $3 million or higher. “We call it the ‘lower level,’ ” says Jean Wright of Jean Wright Real Estate in Winnetka. “ ‘Basement’ doesn’t sound right anymore. So much goes on down there, so much time is spent down there by owners and their families. It’s not unusual to have a party room, a wine-tasting room, a gym and an entertainment center with the best sound system in the area formerly known as the basement. “Gorgeous landscaping,” she adds, “has always been known to enhance the wow factor of a home that’s for sale. The same can now be said for what’s in the lower level of a home.” The current market for super high-end homes — $7 million-plus — has been a “challenging one, especially for homes that aren’t new construction,” according to one broker. But that could change as the days warm up. “The market in general is probably a month behind

because of the awful weather we had in the winter and spring,” says Jean Anderson, a broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group in Lake Forest. “August,” she adds, “is normally a quiet month for those in real estate, but it might not be so quiet this August because of the pent-up demand.” The numbers for homes on the market in the $3 million-$4 million range are encouraging. Broker Jeannie Kurtzhalts of @properties in Winnetka and Glenview notes North Shore homes sold in that range nearly doubled from six in 2013 to 11 for the same period in 2014. “The average sales price for that range,” Kurtzhalts adds, “is $170,000 higher than it was last year and the average time on the market for the homes has gone down about two months [from 367 days to 303].” A somewhat slack market for higher-end luxury homes hasn’t dampened brokers’ enthusiasm for such abodes. Susan Maman of @properties in Winnetka is the listing agent for the Pabst Manor in Glencoe ($5,950,000) and for the Kellogg Estate in Winnetka ($6.5 million). “Both are architecturally and historically significant,” says Maman, who also will work to sell a $7.9 million

Glencoe lakefront property (45 Lakewood Drive, with 100plus feet of private white sandy beach) that was renovated by designer Tom Stringer and landscaped by Scott Byron and Bill Eiserman. “One of the many appeals of old homes,” she adds, “is that they have stood the test of time; they were built so well.” Many other attributes of homes contribute to their significant bump in price, with a significant one being proximity to that arresting, ocean-esque body of water known as Lake Michigan. “The value of a home is dependent on location and acreage,” says broker associate Roberta Miller of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in Lake Forest. “Buyers need to ask, ‘What is it about a house that makes it worth a certain price?’ and, ‘What is unique and special about it?’ It might be a home reminiscent of a southwestern style that isn’t ‘standard’ in this area. Architectural elements mean a great deal to people looking to buy.” For others, the state-of-the-art amenities inside a picturesque house are “must haves.” Some buyers don’t just want smart homes; they want Mensa-worthy homes that help them lower their golf handicaps. The home for sale on 722 Prospect Avenue in Winnetka (co-listed for $7,195,000 by Milena Birov and Peter Cummins of @properties in Winnetka) boasts the latest in smart house and AV features and a golf simulator on the lower level. Buyers interested in looking at luxury homes certainly put square footage high on their checklist of attributes to consider. But it’s not all about a unit of area, notes broker Michele Vold of Coldwell Banker in Deerfield. “That would have to be square footage plus grand craftsmanship, architectural detail and high-end amenities,” she says. Among today’s additional head-turning amenities, inside and outside: large walk-in pantries, bathrooms with heated floors, first- and second-floor laundry rooms, media and game rooms, a tennis court abutting a pool and pool house and upscale bluestone patios. “Other factors that boost a house [into the luxury category],” Vold says, “are the prestige of the builder or architect, the historical significance of the property and the convenient proximity to shopping, transportation, recreation, city and airport.” Broker Mary Kay Burke of Coldwell Banker in Winnetka is well aware that what often helps a home fly off the market is the appeal and usefulness of the area farthest from the clouds. “That lower level … it has to be another level of perfection for high-end homes,” Burke insists. “More and more families are entertaining down there or letting their college students stay there during the summers. “It’s a level now,” she adds, “that has to have everything.” ■

Stand-Up Paddleboarding makes waves on North Shore ■ by angelika labno

Growing up, Matt Barton of Northfield went sailing and wakeboarding. When Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) started gaining popularity on Lake Michigan, he purchased a board for himself and his wife about seven years ago. “It gives us another thing to do when it’s real flat out there,” he said of the activity, which had more first-time participants than any other outdoor sport in the United States last year. “Then when the wind turns and waves pick up, there can be some really fun times — you can actually ride a wave for a long time.”

“The vantage point of being on top of the water — it almost feels like you’re walking on water — is a real treat for folks.” | Keith Heger With summer set to arrive, more and more paddleboarders will flock to North Shore beaches. Only five years ago, perhaps dozens enjoyed the sport, but now it is estimated that hundreds are participating in the area. Barton buys a park district season pass to launch out of Winnetka’s Lloyd Beach, which costs $175 for residents, $350 for non-residents. Winnetka Park District also offers SUP classes in conjunction with

The Northwest Passage, a Wilmette-based adventure travel company. Keith Heger, program director at Northwest Passage, encourages beginners to join a training course to familiarize themselves with the equipment and to learn techniques in paddle strokes and board control. “First-time paddlers will find muscles they never knew they had,” said Heger. “The vantage point of being on top of the water — it almost feels like you’re walking on water — is a real treat for folks.” Barton says he enjoys strapping his board to the top of his car and getting into any body of water, as opposed to traveling with a kayak or boat. He sees more and more people buying their own boards, including handmade Hawaiian ones. The standard board is 11.5 feet long, but boards used for racing can reach 14 feet. Dimitry Burukhin, a Highland Park resident and member of the North Shore Yacht Club, has competed in several local races with Midwest SUP. “Last year we did an Olympic-sized triathlon — but instead of swimming, we were paddling three miles,” he said. “Two weekends ago, I did 18.5 miles on the Des Plaines River, and it took me almost three hours.” Paddlers from around the globe will gather in Chicago to compete in the World Series Races hosted by Chicago World Paddle Challenge from Aug. 8-10. “It’s unlike other sports because local people can also sign up and participate in the elite competition,” Burukhin added. “We have a few locals who are pretty strong.” ■

RETIREMENT LIVING. REDEFINED. The Merion is Chicagoland’s newest luxury retirement apartment community located in the heart of downtown Evanston. Artfully reborn out of the historic North Shore Hotel, The Merion is for those that have worked hard and played hard. Now it is time to retire easy.

Re-purposing unused areas of a home into functional rooms provides the homeowner many benefits. The immediate benefit of converted rooms is that they provide enjoyment, relaxation and purpose in what was previously wasted space. Long-term, room conversions add value to a home by providing prospective buyers with the maximum efficiency of a home’s floor plan and square footage, as well as the uniqueness of the converted room. Efficiency kitchens, libraries, observatories, home theatres, greenhouses, wine rooms, spa-sauna combos or secondary suites are all distinctive choices for a room conversion that make a home stand apart from others, while simultaneously benefiting the homeowner by providing convenience and a sense of luxury without the hefty price tag. Before beginning any room conversion, however, there are necessary considerations to make before deciding what licensed contractors will be required in order to ensure the new room’s comfort, safety and long-term maintenance. The first consideration is, what room are you converting, and what will this room need? For example, venting an insulated attic room properly is crucial for comfort, safety and household maintenance. Improperly ventilated, an attic conversion will not simply be uncomfortably hot, but it will also be damaging to the overall structure. Likewise, basement and garage conversions must have adequate light and ventilation, as well as be sealed to protect against dampness and moisture. Once you’ve taken the necessities into account, it’s time to start the fun part—building a one-of-a-kind room into your family’s unique house!

Child psychologist to play starring role at camp ■ by katie rose mceneely

Andrea Chronis-Tuscano is a clinical child psychologist and the director of the University of Maryland ADHD Program. This summer, she’s living in Highland Park so she can work with Camp STAR, which offers specialized care for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Reading: I’m an associate editor at a journal, so I do tons of writing and editing. I look forward to reading a little bit more this summer. Listening: I’m a huge ‘80s music fan. Watching: Not a lot of TV; I have two little boys, so I hang out with them a lot. Following: With attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, there’s been a lot of focus on genetics, as well as how the environment helps kids with ADHD navigate their social world and how to understand which kids with ADHD end up on a more productive trajectory. I read a lot about that and I write a lot about that, understanding that although there’s a huge genetic component, the environment can play a huge role in how successful the child is — and how happy they are. Camp STAR: In graduate school I worked in a program for children with ADHD — I worked as a counselor, a program supervisor, and a clinical director. I loved doing it; it was such appositive and incredible intensive program for children with ADHD. A friend and colleague wanted to set up a summer treatment program at UIC [which became Camp STAR. It’s a joint effort by the Hyperactivity, Attention, and Learning

Problems Clinic at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Jewish Council for Youth Services (JCYS).] I’m really excited that this year UIC and JCYS invited me to move to Highland Park for the summer to run Camp STAR, which is based on my graduate advisor’s summer treatment program — I’ve participated in the first week of the program every year since it started in 2008. Kids with ADHD get so much negative feedback in their lives — this is a really intensive behavioral treatment program that designed to help them gain more control over their behavior, learn friendships, sports skills, and I think the level of positive reinforcement makes these kids feel good. And we work with their parents to help them use the same strategies at home — the goal is to give kids with ADHD the skills to live better lives. I’ve never lived in Highland Park before, so I’m looking forward to Ravinia and being close to the Botanic Garden, taking the train downtown — it will be an adventure for my family and I! I haven’t lived in [the area] for 12 years now, so I think it will be really fun. Eating: I love food. I love outdoor patios. I love so many different cuisines. What is your favorite mistake? When I went to graduate school, I went to work with somebody who was retiring — that’s how I ended up with Dr. Pelham, who developed the summer treatment program: my advisor was never around. I basically asked if I could work with him, and he said sure, but I had to move to Pittsburgh in two

weeks and start the summer program, and learn everything I could about it. So that’s my favorite mistake: choosing the wrong grad program and having everything work out really well in the end. It’s interesting; I was someone who never

wanted to move away from Chicago but when I did, with was a great opportunity for growth. I still miss it, but it gave me a new perspective on things. For more information about Camp STAR, visit ■

Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart announced a $1 million endowment gift to help support the Lake Forest preparatory high school for young women. Susan Brennan Morrison, Woodlands Academy class of 1969, and her husband, Bob, explained that their gift is in honor of Susan’s late mother, Eileen Bruck Brennan, a 1949 graduate of Barat College of the Sacred Heart in Lake Forest. “My mother was a lovely and courageous woman,” said Morrison. “Her Barat experience was everything to her, especially because her own mother died when my mom was only 7 years old. She learned the Sacred Heart values and continued to live them her entire life.”

North Shore Community Bank invested in the Community Investment Corporation’s 1-4 Unit Rental Redevelopment program. The new program is among the first in the United States to finance the redevelopment of smaller buildings for affordable rental housing. The program will finance approximately 200 buildings and 400 apartments over three years. “Headlines might be touting a rental comeback, but many neighborhoods still struggle with distressed buildings and a significant need for affordable rental housing,” said Jack Markowski, chief executive officer of Community Investment Corporation.

Cyclists roll during inaugural ride ■ by sam eichner

It’s 7:15 a.m. on Sunday — the sky is the color of chalk, while the sun jostles with the clouds. And Rob Paddor is wide awake. He’s a jovial, emotive man with a thick grey mustache and the hair to match, and inside his Evanston Subaru dealership in Skokie he is the de-facto leader of a phalanx of cyclists. Ride 2 Recovery is an organization that raises money to fund cycling programs at military and Veterans Administration locations; as a form of rehabilitation, cycling is effective because it’s a physical activity almost anyone can do.

“We love the public. Their cheers and support give us the energy to go the extra mile.” | Nathan Green Since his first jaunt with Ride 2 Recovery three years ago, Paddor says he has become “emotionally hooked.” Naturally, he decided to host the first Honor Ride Chicago — a one-day event supporting the Ride 2 Recovery program — last weekend. About 300 cyclists registered to ride with 50 or so “healing heroes” on one of three non-competitive

routes around the North Shore. The honorary lead rider was highly decorated war veteran John Masson. Though he lost his left hand, part of his left leg and his entire right leg in Afghanistan, Masson is quick to emphasize the significant physical and emotional impact Ride 2 Recovery has had on him, as well as on other veterans. “The military is about camaraderie anyway, but we’re not in the military anymore,” he says. “When we show up here, though, it’s like we haven’t missed a beat.” Camaraderie becomes an especially important aspect of the event considering that isolation is a common symptom of post-traumatic stress disorder. In a way, Air Force veteran Nathan Green says, doing these rides is a way to “conquer those demons together.” Having the public join them in the ride is an added benefit. “We love the public,” Green says. “Their cheers and support give us the energy to go the extra mile.” “We came out because we wanted to honor the veterans,” Evanston Bicycle Club member Joanne Lake says. “We’re a group of people who ride together, just like them.” As Masson leads the riders out onto the street in front of Evanston Subaru around 8 a.m., a cool breeze picks up, and the sun tucks its head behind the clouds. It looks like it’s about to rain. No one seems to notice. ■

Focused for all the right reasons.

Mancuso is off to the races

Nick Mancuso (center) of Lake Forest Sportscars holds his first-place trophy at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Ala. after a race in April. Mancuso and his teammate Anthony Lazzaro will provide a racecar demonstration and answer questions at Lake Forest Sportscars on Tuesday, June 17.

Nick Mancuso has not known life without Ferraris. Reared by a family that owns Lake Forest Sportscars, Mancuso has been around the high-performance vehicles on a daily basis. “I had a poster of a Ferrari on my wall as a kid,” the Lake Forest native says. “It’s an iconic car.” Mancuso is following in his father Rick’s footsteps, racing Ferraris professionally. The younger Mancuso got a late start in the racing business at 18 years old (before that he was successfully breeding Green Tree Pythons in his bedroom), but he has made up for lost time. The 27-year-old won his first race and almost every race his first year in the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). He sits seventh in the SCCA standings. Mancuso said racing is more demanding than people think. “I will burn a few thousand calories in a race. I will lose a few pounds,” Mancuso said. “But you can’t lose your mental focus at all. You lose your focus for a second and you can make a $600,000 mistake.” He has totaled several cars on the racetrack. “It happens,” he said. Mancuso and his teammate Anthony

Lazzaro will provide a racecar demonstration and answer questions from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, June 17 at Lake Forest Sportscars, 990 North Shore Drive, Lake Bluff. Residents can get up an up-close look at the No. 16 Ferrari Lake Forest/Wounded Wear Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 racecar — a two-door coupe — and meet the R. Ferri Motorsports team at a cocktail party before they head to the Road America race in Elkhart Lake, Wis. Mancuso said it is great to be around a car company like Ferrari that does everything right. “They have been making race cars for 60 years. It is well-refined,” said Mancuso, a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara. “Everything is done properly. The engine is great and reliable. It is one of the strongest cars in the (Pirelli) World Challenge.” Asked about the experience of racing a Ferrari, Mancuso chuckled and said, “It’s awesome.” Mancuso said he is always asked about how fast the vehicle goes. “It does not even have a speedometer in it,” he said, noting that the vehicle tops out at 175 or 180 mph. “All you want to do is get out the last corner as fast as possible.” To attend the cocktail party, e-mail Cassie at ■

22 | lifestyle & arts ■ by david sweet Off of Gage Street in Winnetka, just east of Green Bay Road, an alley features a handful of stores. In the site of a former barber shop sits Darryl Rose, founder of Get Dwell, which provides remodeling, repair and handyman services. He quickly stands up and moves to the other room of the two-room office, where a huppa — slated to be used during a wedding at The Deer Path Inn in Lake Forest — is being constructed by an associate, who also plans to create a bunk bed for three boys. “This is the fun room, where all the work gets done,” says Rose. Dressed in blue jeans, the fifty-something Wilmette resident yearns to build like he used to (“I love to build stuff”) but realizes it’s more important to be attached to a laptop computer and provide strategy for the business. “I miss it — I wanted to build the huppa with my son (Sam),” he says. “Then I realized, ‘What am I doing?’ “

“I thought, ‘Doesn’t everyone want this?’ You get home, and everything’s working.” | Darryl Rose What he’s doing is putting Get Dwell in the best shape of its nine years. The business — which does everything from replacing doors to cleaning attics — set a revenue record of $600,000 in 2012 and $750,000-$850,00 is expected this year, thanks in part to 25 ice-dam projects during the usually slow winter. Last month, Rose graced the cover on Remodeling magazine, a national trade publication, and was named a winner of the publication’s Big50 award, which honors those who “have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity.” Rose credits the 10,000 Small Businesses program run by Goldman Sachs, which he was accepted into with a few dozen others in the Chicago area last year, for propelling his firm to new heights. “It’s a laser-focused entrepreneurial program. You dissect your company,” says Rose, who notes none of the participants possessed an MBA. “We don’t offer all the products we used to because of what I learned. We’re more efficient. Now that I understand accounting reports better, I can make better decisions.” A native of Rhode Island, Rose became interested in handyman work and its business

potential when he’d visit his mother during breaks from Lake Forest College. “I’d do stuff around the house, and I’d know I’d have to keep the house running until I got back there to help again six months later,” he says. “I thought, ‘Doesn’t everyone want this?’ You get home, and everything’s working.” His first carpentry job involved working at Ragdale, Howard Van Doren Shaw’s house in Lake Forest. “It was awesome, Everything was so cool,” he says as the Grateful Dead song “Cassidy” sung by Suzanne Vega plays in the background. “Howard Van Doren Shaw created those stone mansions where the carriages would come around the front like Downton Abbey.” But then Rose ended up spending 20 years in sales and marketing before launching Get Dwell in 2005. Unlike most in his profession, he has always given a client a contract up front about why they are meeting and what the expectations are. That way, the initial meeting goes smoothly. “The CEO guys want to say yes or no and not have their time wasted in a meeting,” he explains. “That’s where a lot of contractors fall down. They’re not good communicators.” He credits the “Mom network” through schools for much of his business; nine out of 10 clients are female homeowners. Get Dwell has also partnered with hardware stores — such as John Millen Hardware in Wilmette — where its promotional materials rest at cash registers. Rose hopes to open a Get Dwell in Chicago before eventually launching stores in other parts of the country. A fan of eating Sunday breakfast at home, Rose often makes eggs over easy (“there’s a little bit of an art to that”) along with granola, yogurt and coffee. He counts Frank Lloyd Wright as one of his mentors. “His architecture is a celebration of life,” Rose notes. “If you want to live in a series of boxes instead, fine.” As was Wright of his creations, Rose is proud of his work. As an example, he recalls a gathering at Highcrest Middle School in Wilmette. “I’m talking with a member of the school board and the head of the PTA, who are both clients. Another client is coming down the hallway toward us. I thought, ‘If we didn’t do really good work, I’d be really nervous right now.’ “ ■

Summer sun poised to shine on Elawa again ■ by sam eichner

A cool breeze coming off a not-so-distant lake. The clink of champagne glasses, gently colliding under a moonlit sky. Picnics in the gloaming. Everyone has a different image of summer; for Claire Simpson, it’s Elawa Farm’s Here Comes the Sun event during the summer solstice.

“It’s just truly, to me, what summer means: being outside and enjoying the weather, enjoying the garden.” | Claire Simpson “It’s a beautiful evening,” Simpson says. “It’s just truly, to me, what summer means: being outside and enjoying the weather, enjoying the garden.” Simpson is an associate board member of the Elawa Farm Foundation, and one of the co-chairs of this year’s event. Since its establishment in 2002, the foundation has been dedicated to both preserving and building upon Elawa Farm’s historic legacy. Originally conceived as a “gentleman’s farm” in 1917 for A. Watson Armour — think Lake Forest’s more subdued version of Gatsby’s West Egg estate — Elawa occupies 16 acres of picturesque land between the Middlefork Savannah and Lake Forest Open Lands. Armour’s living quarters, now restored to their historical significance, are pastorally chic, a clean assemblage of red brick and

white trim. The hay barn, often the host of bars or musical acts, boasts high ceilings strewn with myriad white string lights. Even the wagon shed, with its chalkboard menu and display of colorful jams, is the epitome of refined rusticity; one could easily imagine it serving as inspiration for a Crate & Barrel catalogue. “The event is really about showcasing the farm itself,” associate board member and event co-chair Don Johansson says. “It’s about realizing Elawa for what it really is.” And for more than 10 years, the Summer Solstice event has been doing just that — while also raising money for the foundation that helps nurture its programs, which include cooking classes with their in-house chef, a weekly garden market, and activities for children. Yet despite being, as executive director Joanne Miller calls it, Elawa’s “one big annual fundraiser,” Simpson insists that the event has none of the formal trappings so prevalent in the North Shore’s other seasonal benefits: “Casual dress, casual food, casual evening in the garden…I think most parties [on the North Shore] are a little fancier, have a little more fanfare and to do.” In addition to the Southern-style barbecue food, local band and event staple Rollover will play in the large white tent erected in the field behind the wagon shed. There will also be a silent auction, offering such items as a spot in chef Gale Gand’s cooking class, and the opportunity to spend half a day on the farm with Elawa’s resident farmer, Jesse Rosenbluth. “When the weather’s nice, it’s really just an exceptional evening,” Simpson says. “Looking at the scenery, wandering through the garden, having a cocktail…”

The event takes place on Saturday, June Because for all that’s new at Elawa, the real draw is the same as it was over half a 21 from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Tickets are century ago, when Armour still used the $95 per person (tax deductible donor tickets estate as his weekend home: a retreat to the are $125) and are available to purchase at country for a midsummer night under the Event is limited to stars. approximately 200 people.

Up close with Pascal Smooth shiny hair monopolizes the runways and spills over into the pages of fashion magazines. Hair smoothing (or straightening), as you can imagine, has become hugely popular in the beauty industry. Along with the wave of new product introductions comes questions and concerns about the safety of these products – specifically exposure to formaldehyde for salon staff and clients alike. In light of recent public concerns, we set out to determine the safest and most efficacious method of delivery, and product choice, for the highest salon-quality hair smoothing and straightening. We not only researched the finest product offerings, but spoke directly with medical experts in skin protection and breathing to ensure that we were doing everything possible at our salons, during delivery and hair treatment, to protect our staff and clients above all else. The Federal Government has responded by engaging the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and several State OSHA programs in investigating questions and complaints about possible formaldehyde exposure. Some products labeled “formaldehyde-free” may

be “misleading” according to recent OSHA reports, with formaldehyde derivatives used under a different name. According to Dr. Andrew Scheman, a Northbrookbased dermatologist with expertise in contact allergy and occupational dermatology, and co-author of Consumer Reports Cosmetic Buying Guide, “even some Keratin (top-of-the-line) hair straighteners contain formaldehyde, which can be listed on product labels under other names. Responsible salons using these products will have proper ventilation systems to ensure client safety.” Dr. Michael Heniff, a Chicago area pulmonologist, agrees with the importance of proper ventilation to mitigate any chemical effects or reactions. “Particularly for asthma sufferers or anyone with lung or general breathing deficiencies, it’s important to minimize exposure to formaldehyde and like chemicals, and to only be exposed, if necessary, when proper ventilation is in use.” To that end, we have recently invested in and introduced in our salons a fume extraction system to reduce the risk of harmful vapors. During a Keratin treatment, built-in ventilation chambers above

the flatiron suck in the fumes – such as formaldehyde or derivative gas and odors – and put back out purified air. As salon owners and employers: •W e should all agree to facilitate the safest possible work environment for our staff and the customers they serve. • We should strive to use only products with zero derivatives of formaldehyde. • We should provide our stylists with certifications and ongoing training in the art of hair straightening. As salon patrons and guests: • Seek out salons that prioritize training and require certification of their staff. • Inquire about a stylist’s specific area of expertise and certification. • A sk about brands in use and their respective formaldehyde content • V isually inspect cleanliness, and inquire about ventilated workspace and the use of up-to-date tools such as fume irons.

I believe that everyone should be their own safety advocate, and keep in mind that no beauty service is worth risking your health. Next month: Protecting your hair (and hair color) from the sun! Please submit your questions and comments to: ■ —Pascal

Greg Christian is the chief executive officer and founder of Beyond Green, which provides organic food services to Sears School in Kenilworth and St. Francis Xavier School in Wilmette. How did you start cooking? I thought I was going to be a doctor, but that didn’t interest me early on. I fell into catering and owned a high-end company for about 17 years. I travelled a little bit, got to cook, and during that time I tried to figure out how to keep the integrity in the catered food. I didn’t make food ahead of time, then heat and serve — we weren’t afraid to cook from a raw state for parties of 500 or 5,000. During that time I started a family, and my youngest was sick with asthma — really sick. It was a nightmare. My wife at the time said, “Let’s try allorganic food.” [And it worked]. Years cooking? Thirty-three years. What can you tell me about Beyond Green? I started the mantra of “Grow, Teach, Feed” about 10 years ago and was the first to put organic gardens into Chicago Public Schools. From there, I really started to study systems thinking — how do you go to local, organic food and stay in budget? What I’ve discovered is that we waste a lot of food on the planet. What I’ve studied is how to eliminate that wasted food and then find the money to buy more expensive, local, organic food — and then you find the time to make it. We’re a food-service project that sells to schools, and I’m hoping to expand that into contracts where we cans ell that in schools. I consult around North NSWEEKEND0514

America, helping people find sustainable, real food with no waste. I am confident that I can do real food in budget. Best recipe tweak? Almost everybody buys premade hamburgers. I use local meat from Black Earth Meats in Wisconsin, and I blend it 50/50 with conventional beef to make it better but more affordable. I hand-patty the burgers. What do you like to eat at home? I make a big pot of food on Sunday and eat it a couple of days in a row, but it change it every day, I add things to it. It would be hard for you to tell you’re eating the same basic food. Worthwhile gadget? You have to cook over high heat. I almost exclusively cook in cast-iron pans. Favorite cookbook? I’m religiously a subscriber to Art Culinaire, a hardcover magazine that comes out four times a year. It’s the Cadillac of food-ness to me. I never make anything from it, but I dream about it. Favorite vegetable? Garlic. Funniest or most memorable kitchen incident? I was catering a fancy party for a lady whose garden was on a national garden walk. I forgot flowers to decorate the hors d’oeuvres tray—this was maybe 15 years ago. It was super-fancy. I told one of my waiters to go pick some flowers and greens from the garden for garnish. He didn’t want to do it, so I told him to jump the fence to the neighbor’s yard to get flowers. He did, but he was really mad. I thought it was funny; you just have to solve the problem.

Combine the following: 1 cup mayonnaise; ¾ cup buttermilk; ¼ cup sour cream; ½ teaspoon salt; ½ teaspoon black pepper; 1 tablespoon fresh dill; 1 tablespoon fresh parsley; 1 teaspoon minced garlic; 1 finely chopped scallion. Optional: add 2 tablespoons honey for honey ranch. Makes approximately a pint of dressing.

Finding the Balance photography by larry miller

Celebrating the partnership between Rush University Medical Center (RUMC) and the women of the North Shore, “Finding the Balance” served as an informational evening sponsored by the Auxiliary of the Woman’s Board, held at Winnetka Community House. Speaker Patricia Normand, director of the Mindful Life Program at RUMC, spoke about mindfulness and building resilience toward stress. Not only was the evening a focus on women’s health issues, it also kicked off the Cooks’ Tour, a North Shore housewalk to be held this year on September 17. The event raised $3,000, going toward the purchasing of intraoperative imaging equipment necessary to remove brain tumors, making RUMC the first hospital in Chicago to have this capability. Katy Kilborn serves as president of the Auxiliary, and Veronica Lefkovitz served as the chairperson of the event.

Nearing 90, Pedian still puts his foot to the floor ■ by dianne cotton caplan Walk into Oscar Isberian Rugs’ Highland Park store most weekdays, and you’ll likely run into 89-year-old Haig Pedian, decked out in a suit and tie. After all, what are you supposed to do when you realize retirement isn’t for you? Haig Pedian is the name behind Pedian’s flooring company, which dominated the Chicagoland area from 1946 until 2003, when he sold the multi-store, family-run business started by his father. Like most new retirees, Pedian had big plans to enjoy a life of leisure — but that didn’t happen. “I tried it for three years, but I couldn’t stand being retired,” he said. “I can’t stand golfing. I’ve been around the world 50 times. When you’ve been active all your life, you shouldn’t have to stop working — especially when you are healthy.” So in 2006, Pedian got back to business, carving out a new niche for himself in flooring, alongside his son, Haig Jr. In 2010, an opportunity presented itself for Pedian to work with his nephews, Oscar and Sarkis Tatosian, owners of Oscar Isberian Rugs. The mission was to add highend carpeting to the retailer’s mix of high-end area rugs. “Uncle Haig is an institution in the floor covering industry,” said Sarkis Tatosian. “There is no one better to help

expand our broadloom business than him.” It all started with Haig Pedian’s father, Vartan, who began the family business in Armenia in 1906. When he moved to the United States, he brought the business with him. Haig’s destiny was set. Born into the industry in Chicago in 1924, Haig worked summers and after school in the family story, but it wasn’t until 1946, after a tour of duty in the Air Force, that his flooring career really began. There, he learned the ins and outs of Oriental rugs and repair. Along the way, brothers Ava and Vahan joined Haig in expanding Pedian’s, which serviced a 70-mile radius from Chicago north to Lake Bluff and west to Oak Park and Arlington Heights. As trends changed, so did the makeup of product Pedian’s sold. “In the late 1940s, my father was smart enough to realize that Orientals were no longer in vogue; people were rolling them up and installing carpeting,” Haig said. “In those days, we bought rolls, not just samples like today.” In the 1950s, hard surface flooring became more important, so Pedian’s dove into vinyl, marble, ceramic and wood. “By the 1960s, we were doing it all,” said Haig, whose firm built a 25,000-square-foot warehouse in Morton Grove during that time. “We were so successful because we were

leading the trends just as they were happening.” Today, he says the two most important looks are sisal and custom-made wool products, both in wall-to-wall carpeting and rugs. “Designers come in today looking for natural-fiber sisal carpeting and its wool counterparts. But they are not interested in simple flat weaves to cover large spaces,” Haig says. “Instead, they want interesting patterns, which give a room added dimension and more layers of interest. This design and texture combination is so important right now.” Top designs, according to Haig, include abstract artistic patterns and striking geometric looks, especially when they are finished in palettes of soft grays and greens. “These styles are being asked for in both carpeting and rugs,” he said. After nearly 68 years in the floor covering business, perhaps the biggest surprise to Mr. Pedian is customer loyalty. “People come in and ask Haig Jr. and me if we are the same Pedian’s that were on Lincoln Avenue. The name is golden to this day,” he said. “Add to that the exceptional reputation that my nephews have continued to build at Oscar Isberian Rugs, and the result is customers who feel truly taken care of.” Dianne Cotton Caplan is the editor of Rug Insider. ■

Debut dandies: Lake Forest High School’s Lucy Edwards, Delaney Williams, Kendall Hoke and Carly Hoke celebrate their first-half goal against Normal West. The Scouts ended up winning the Class 2A state title on penalty kicks in their first finals appearance. photography by joel lerner

Hugs galore

Scouts capture state crown after beating Normal in stressful final ■ by bill mclean Butterflies in Ty Stuckslager’s stomach turned 40 years old last fall. They fluttered for the first time in 1974, when Stuckslager — a midfielder for New Trier West’s boys soccer team — and other Cowboys edged Wheaton Central 1-0 in four overtimes to capture the program’s first state championship. Lake Forest High School’s girls soccer team made its first appearance in a state championship match at North Central College in Naperville on June 7. It needed two OTs and penalty kicks to down Normal West Community High School 2-1 for the Class 2A title. The Scouts’ coach? None other than Stuckslager, harbor for flapping, middle-aged insects. “They felt the same,” he said shortly after LFHS sophomore midfielder Paige Bourne blasted the clinching PK past Wildcats junior goalkeeper Natalie Freeman. “Same tension, too,” he added. Lake Forest sophomore defender Adrian Walker didn’t freeze when she faced a taut moment in the first half. With 11:10 remaining, chaos in front of Scouts senior keeper Ginnie Revenaugh caused the ball to travel somewhat leisurely toward the goal line — behind Revenaugh. Walker, stationed nearby, eyed the ball but didn’t walk. An alert Walker dashed to clear the ball, just as the ball was about to roll over the line.

It was quite a save for a field player. “I knew, as soon as Ginnie bobbled the ball, I had to get back there and do something,” Walker recalled. “The bobble wasn’t her fault; defenders and offensive players blocked her view.” Walker’s heady play — with her left foot — preserved the Scouts’ 1-0 lead. Lake Forest’s splendid defender, senior all-stater Lucy Edwards, could do nothing but watch the brief drama. “I was freaking out,” the DePaul recruit admitted. “Great recovery by her, great recovery.” Edwards tallied the Scouts’ goal in regulation when her right shoulder deflected a shot by junior defender Kendall Hoke at the 21:13 mark of the first half. The ball had pinballed around and off players from both teams before it glanced off the top of Edwards’ right wing. Normal West (26-2) scored only the second goal allowed by Revenaugh this postseason at 27:22 of the second half. A lengthy flip throw-in by junior midfielder-defender Tess Marcordes found classmate Carolyn Peters, whose 14th goal of the season knotted it at 1-1. Both teams failed to score in two 10-minute overtimes, triggering a shootout session. After Scouts senior Sydney Johnston made her PK and Peters made hers for Normal West, Edwards’ attempt banged off the right post. The miss stunned Lake Forest’s faithful. But hope resurfaced when the next Wildcat up booted the ball over the crossbar. Junior midfielder Carly Hoke converted

her PK for the Scouts, giving Stuckslager’s crew a 2-1 advantage. Revenaugh then came up with her biggest save of the weekend, tilting to her right and batting a shot from Allison Hieb away with her right palm. “It felt good,” Revenaugh recalled. Lake Forest junior defender Bailey Ehrens swelled her team’s cushion in the PK session to 3-1. A Wildcat answered with a successful PK. That set the stage for Bourne. A miss would extend the session. A make would … make program history. Bourne made hers, turned around immediately and screamed joyously — with her arms up — as she sprinted toward her ecstatic teammates for rollicking hugs. Edwards stopped leaking sad teardrops. And started dealing with the happy kind. “Lucy,” Stuckslager said, “went from the deepest of depths to the highest mountain in less than two minutes.” A relieved Edwards stood near the goal post she hit and reflected on an afternoon when most of her classmates to the north wore a cap and gown while she got to wear a state championship medal. “It’s bittersweet because it feels great now, but I can’t come back and win it again,” she said. Stuckslager pointed to two pivotal moments for his 19-6-1 club, which faced several formidable Class 3A foes, including eventual 3A state champion New Trier and perennial power Loyola Academy. “In February,” he said, “I saw [Revenaugh] in a health club and asked her, ‘Are you coming out for soccer?’ She said, ‘Yes,’ and I told

her, ‘Good, you’re the last piece of the puzzle.’ “After we lost [5-1] to Loyola [on April 29],” the coach added, “the coaches and three captains [Edwards, Revenaugh and Johnston] got together and met in a room at the school. It was a good time to get together and talk things out, and the captains were so helpful.” The Scouts went 12-1 after the meeting, ending the season on a nine-match winning streak. Notable: LFHS beat Chatham Glenwood 2-0 in a Class 2A state semifinal on June 6. Sophomore forward Jenny McKendry scored her team-high 13th goal of the season before Carly Hoke tallied her ninth of 2014; Walker and Edwards delivered the assists. Revenaugh recorded her 13th shutout of the spring. … Stuckslager, in his 21st season at LFHS, improved his career mark to 291-119-63. The Scouts’ win total (19) this spring was the most in Stuckslager’s coaching career at the school, surpassing the 18 wins his squads notched in 2003 and 2009. That New Trier West state team that won a state championship with Stuckslager on its roster went 18-3 in 1974. … Lake Forest’s state appearance last weekend was the program’s first. … Bourne paced the team in assists (16) this spring. … Revenaugh allowed only 23 goals in 26 matches for a goals-against average of 0.88. … Johnston and Carly Hoke were all-sectional picks. … The all-conference selections were Edwards, Ehrens, Johnston, Walker, Bourne and Carly Hoke. The honorable mentions were Sheridan Bufe and Kendall Hoke.. ■

‘Four’-tified effort

Stout defense produces memorable postseason run for state champion New Trier ■ by bill mclean After the long hugs, emphatic high fives and smiles for at least 342 cameras following the Class 3A girls soccer state championship, New Trier’s Trevians finally started to walk off the damp field at North Central College in Naperville. It was the ideal time for a male teen to yell a message from the stands on June 7: “Dani, you’re my idol!” New Trier sophomore goalie Dani Kaufman certainly deserved the shout-out on that night. Kaufman (4 saves) and her tenacious defensive cohorts had blanked another foe, this time St. Charles East in a 1-0 decision for the program’s fourth state championship. Not once during the postseason did Kaufman have to retrieve a ball in the goal behind her. The last time a team scored on NT was way back on May 3, when Waubonsie Valley claimed a 1-0 victory at the Naperville Invite. Kaufman’s goals-against average of 0.26 in 23 matches is grain-of-sand dinky. “Dani was phenomenal,” Trevians coach Jim Burnside said after his 18th NT club finished with a record of 31-1. “Her positioning is what makes her so good. Had other keepers faced the shots she had to face, they would have had to fly to make saves. “Not Dani,” he added. “She knows where she has to be. She was a star this season, along with our entire defense.” Trevians senior defender Sarah Connors got to bask in the spotlight after the final — as the match’s offensive star. Her majestic 42-yard goal at the 33:22 mark of the first half stunned Fighting Saints senior keeper Kendra Sheehan. “I saw her move up a little,” Connors recounted after

doubling — yes, doubling — her season-goal total with one memorable kick. “So I chipped it. “We wanted to score more. Defense was key.” Connors, a co-captain, and junior Caroline Smith served as the team’s outside backs, with senior Alex Bukovac and junior Jackie Welch taking care of the center-back duties. “We call our ‘D’ the ‘D-4,’ ” Bukovac said. “But we add Dani to that. Our defense’s thinking was, ‘Win every punt, every corner kick, every goalie kick, every ball that’s in the air.’ We never, ever wanted to get beat 1-on-1. “All season we wanted our defense to provide energy for the rest of the team every chance we got.” NT’s defense had to be sharp and tireless against St. Charles East’s slick dribblers, particularly junior forward Darcy Cunningham and senior midfielder Amanda Hilton. The Fighting Saints (19-5-5) won the possession battle behind that pair’s skill set. “They were a handful,” Burnside said of East’s entire team. “Very organized, very well-coached. Our team … we gut it out. It’s what we had to do tonight.” The Trevians had to face Waubonsie Valley’s 22-1-3 Warriors in a dandy state semifinal matchup on June 6. Valley’s only loss came at the feet of Lyons Township in its season opener on March 17. New Trier notched its sixth 1-0 victory of the spring to advance to the fifth final in program history. Sophomore forward Kelly Maday, an all-state pick, scored the goal, her 19th of the spring. The goal total ranked second among teammates behind senior co-captain and AllAmerican Maddie Mulford’s 25. Kaufman collected four saves for her sixth straight postseason shutout. Following her seventh straight postseason shutout the next night, the American idol sang the praises of Connors.

“I can’t say enough good things about her,” Kaufman said. “She’s been great for us, as a player and as a captain. “I want to be just like her when I’m a senior.” Notable: New Trier topped eventual Class 1A state champ Manteno 2-0 on April 12 and defeated eventual 2A state champ Lake Forest High School by the same score on May 10. … Burnside now has guided two NT squads to at least 30 wins. His second state championship team won all 30 of its matches in 2004. His first title team went 28-0-2 in 2003, and NT’s ’06 state champion finished 28-2. “He’s a great coach to have at our school,” Kaufman said. “He’s big on getting us ready by watching film. I’m so lucky he gave me the opportunity to play for this team.” … Quoteworthy: Burnside, on Connors’ second goal of the season in last weekend’s 3A championship: “It’s not a matter of how many you score; it’s when you score them. That was a big one for us.” … Connors plans to play soccer at Trinity College in Connecticut. One of TC’s sisters in the New England Small College Athletic Conference is Connecticut College, where Bukovac intends to play more stellar defense. … Maday ended up as the Trevians’ leader in assists (22) this spring. Bucknell-bound Mulford and junior forward Maggie Armstrong each finished with 11. … Burnside’s overall record at New Trier is an impressive 407-66-27. His appearance as a coach at state last weekend was his eighth — a state record. It broke a tie with Libertyville High School’s Andrew Bitta and Granite City High School’s Gene Baker. … Burnside guided a 12-loss Trevians team to a state quarterfinal appearance in 2007. … Welch, Armstrong, Bukovac, senior center-midfielder Molly Cahill and sophomore midfielders Celia Frei and Bina Saipi earned allCentral Suburban League South honors. … Connors and Kaufman were all-sectional picks. ■

LA replay

Ramblers win state girls lacrosse title for sixth straight year

Fantastic dynastic: Members of the Loyola Academy girls lacrosse team hug after claiming the state championship at Northwestern’s Lakeside Field.

■ by bill mclean As John Dwyer stood on a sideline at Lakeside Field on Northwestern University’s campus, he crossed his right leg over his left. Loyola Academy’s girls lacrosse coach appeared to be relaxed and calm. He assumed the posture, at various spots along the sideline, for most of the lacrosse state championship game against New Trier on June 6. Golfers assume a similar stance when they’re casually waiting for a partner to hit a shot from a fairway. “That’s what he does,” said Ramblers freshman middie/attack Brennan Dwyer, John’s daughter. What LA’s girls lax program does: win state championships. Year after year after year. Loyola beat New Trier 12-8 for its sixth straight state title last weekend, getting a career-high-tying five goals from junior attack Caroline Heldring and avenging an 8-7 loss in Northfield on April 30. NT entered the contest with a 22-0-1 record. “We knew, if we worked to get the ball to Caroline, she’d have a great game because of her size,” John Dwyer said of the 6-footer, who also used her considerable skills to strike for four first-half goals. “It seemed when New Trier made a push at us, we had an answer. We played with controlled urgency. These kids kept their composure all night.”

LA (24-5) raced to a 4-0 lead. Brennan Dwyer and junior middie Megan Schulte scored goals after Heldring opened the scoring with a goal at the 19:32 mark and struck again 56 seconds later. “We’d been practicing to beat [New Trier’s] backer zone [defense],” said Heldring, who dished a team-high 54 assists this spring. “The keys to doing that are moving quickly and looking for the open girl in the middle. “I guess I was the best option at times tonight.” Dwyer was one of the best freshmen in the state this spring, racking up 69 goals and 33 assists and earning first-team all-state honors. The savvy, speedy rookie also was adept at winning face-offs. “She had a pretty darn good freshman year,” John Dwyer said. “Possession is a critical and huge part of the game, especially in a game like this. Brennan certainly helped us [in that phase].” His daughter scored twice to help LA capture its 10th state title in program history. The Ramblers also got goals from senior cocaptain and Stanford-bound Maggie Nick, junior Kathleen Hulseman and seniors Gieriet Bowen an Dee Dee Snediker. Senior co-captain and goalie Rita Brandstrader collected four saves for the victors. The daughter of one of John Dwyer’s cousins played another superb game for New Trier. Senior middie and first-team all-stater Charlotte McGuire poured in four of her five goals in the second half. “Super kid, great leader, special player,”

Trevians coach Pete Collins said of the Marquette-bound standout. “Unselfish, too. She made everybody on the team feel good throughout the season.” Collins felt the difference in the title game was Loyola’s knack for winning draws. Those little triumphs led to lengthy possessions and made it difficult for the Trevians to establish a rhythm on offense. “Draws were so important,” said Collins. “We didn’t possess the ball enough tonight. When I see the film, I’m sure I’ll notice we often had sticks to the ball or close to it. We just weren’t able to finish, to get possession. “Loyola’s players are go-getters,” he added. “They’re not going to back down.” Betsey Kvam, Tace Sutherland and Emily Carothers also scored for NT (22-11), which trailed 6-2 at the half and 11-6 at the 8:21 mark of the second half. McGuire and Carothers scored the final two goals in the final 1:12. “Great season, great season,” Collins said. “This team worked hard, played well. We beat Loyola this year. But it’s hard to beat a very good team twice.” It’s not easy to solve a team coached by Dwyer, who had to quickly dart out of his trademark stance to avoid the brunt of a celebratory water-cooler shower after the championship game. “Somebody gave him a bobblehead figure not too long ago,” Nick said. “The figure is standing exactly like [Dwyer] likes to stand during game. It’s hysterical. “It helps during games, looking over at him and seeing him stand that way when

we’re all riled up or feeling down. Games are usually filled with ups and downs. During an up or a down, you want to notice a coach who looks composed.” Notable: John Dwyer praised Ramblers assistant coach Elizabeth O’Connor following the state title game after noting O’Connor will step aside for a while because she is expecting. O’Connor served as a coach for the past five years. “That’s an enormous loss for us,” Dwyer said. “I don’t think we would have won five state championships without her as a coach.” … LA and NT each escaped with a one-goal victory in state semifinal action at Evanston Township High School on June 4. LA edged Hinsdale Central 11-10; NT slipped past Glenbrook South 6-5. Dwyer scored five goals against the Red Devils, who led the entire game until only four seconds remained. McGuire tallied three goals, including the game-winner at 2:05 of the second half, in the other semi. NT senior middie Julie Ball beat South’s goalie to tie the game at 5-5 with 7:09 left. … Snediker and junior defender Laine Dolan joined Nick and Dwyer as first-team all-state picks. McGuire, Ball, Kvam and Trevians junior goalie Danni LeServe also earned all-state first-team status. Among the second-team all-state selections were Loyola’s Bowen, Brandstrader and Claire Rushin, as well as New Trier’s Grace Hemmer. All-state honorable mention honorees: LA’s Heldring, Hulseman, Karina de Hueck and Annie Dooley, along with NT’s Darby Tingue. ■

Razor sharp Earvolino delivers quality relief work for Trevians

‘Side’ show: New Trier junior reliever Andrew Earvolino picked up a save in his team’s 4-3 win over Loyola Academy in the Class 4A sectional semifinal on June 5.

■ by kevin reiterman An unsuspecting Andrew Earvolino got Big-Leagued. While being interviewed by reporters near the New Trier High School dugout, the ace relief pitcher got his face splattered with shaving cream. Compliments of a teammate: Max Thoma. “Max is the jokester on the team,” said a stunned, but delighted, Earvolino, following New Trier’s 4-3 win over Loyola Academy in the Class 4A sectional final on June 5. Thoma simply was taking a page out of the Major League celebration book. Have shaving cream, will lather. Meanwhile, Earvolino has taken a page out of Dan Quisenberry’s book. Or, Kent Tekulve’s. Or, Ted Abernathy’s. Earvolino is Mr. Submariner. In a game played at the Munz Athletic Campus in Glenview, the New Trier righthander came up with a sublime performance against the host Ramblers. Talk about a close shave. With things tensing up in the top of the seventh — 2 on, 0 outs in a 1-run game — Earvolino calmly came out of the bullpen and used his unique drop and drive delivery to record two strikeouts. The junior left the potential tying run on

third to make a winner out of NT starter Drew Fischer. This was not Earvolino’s first quality outing — far from it. He finished the spring with a 0.00 earned run average. “Not allowing an earned run in 20-plus innings,” said NT head coach Mike Napolean, “is kind of ridiculous.” But the fresh-faced Earvolino did record a first against the Ramblers. “This was,” he said, “the first time that I’ve ever had shaving cream on my face.” Earvolino also was a late-inning specialist in the sectional title game on June 7. In a losing cause — Evanston eliminated the Trevians from postseason by a 3-2 score — the 5-foot-8, 140-pounder once again was on top of his game. Earvolino put out a fire in the top of the sixth, when he got Evanston’s No. 3 hitter, Eli Otting, who has belted 12 home runs this spring, to pop out with the bases loaded. He also worked a scoreless seventh inning — with one strikeout — to keep the game within reach. “I’ve grown accustomed to these kinds of situations,” said Earvolino, who allowed only 16 hits in 21.1 innings with 17 Ks and six walks. But he can’t lie. “I had some butterflies,” said Earvolino, referring to the sectional semifinal game.

“It was pretty intense.” Earvolino is effective, yes. Overpowering? Hardly. There’s no hum on his 75 mile-per-hour fastball. But there’s plenty of break. And he delivers his pitches with plenty of deception. “It’s kind of funny,” said New Trier catcher Logan Wible. “When he’s warming up, you hear the other team do some chirping. They’re getting antsy. They can’t wait to face him. And then, he throws the ball right past them. His stuff is tough to hit.” Getting hitters out runs in Earvolino’s family. His cousin, Jeff Snell, was a hurler at New Trier. He went on to pitch — submarine style — at Division I Lafayette College for four years with great effectiveness (18 career saves). Throwing submarine style is relatively new for Earvolino. He made the change after huddling with his pitching coach, Paul Kosinski of The Strike Zone Baseball Academy in Glenview, last year. The change of delivery has changed his course. Earvolino now is the cream of NT’s relief corps. Notable: Hitting stars were hard to come by for New Trier (21-18) in its 3-2 setback to Evanston (23-13-1). The Trevians were shut out on two hits through 6 2/3 innings.

photography by joel lerner

But senior catcher Logan Wible pumped some life into his team, when he drilled a pitch thrown by Evanston starter Russel Snapp over the left-field fence. Snap, crackle and pop. “With two outs, I didn’t think he was going to throw me something off speed,” said Wible, who will try to walk on at Illinois State University next season. “I was looking for a fastball away. After popping out in my last atbat, I was just trying to level out my swing.” “It was nice to see that (Wible’s homer),” said NT head coach Mike Napolean. “He put us on the board after six miserable innings.” The Trevians didn’t play pristine baseball. The infield committed four errors. That was not the case in the sectional semifinal game against Loyola. The Trevians made just one error, while the offense came up with timely hitting. First baseman Matt Boscow led the team’s sevenhit attack by going 2-for-2 with a sacrifice fly. Grant Klenovich and Frank Nicholas had RBI singles, while Wible brought a run in on sac fly. New Trier placed three seniors on the allCSL South team: pitcher Matt Cohen, shortstop Sammy Visconti and third baseman Matt McCaffrey. Scott Hammes and Andrew Earvolino will represent the Trevians at the Showcase Tournament at St. Charles North next weekend. ■

‘Charades loving’ Trevians highly competitive on the diamond ■ by bob gosman In an age where teenagers often spend every spare moment looking at a screen of some sort, it must have seemed as if the New Trier softball team was in a time warp during its spring break trip to Normal. One night with about an hour to go before dinner, the girls gathered in the front lobby of the hotel where, unexpectedly, a game of Charades broke out. A highly competitive game of Charades. In fact, they had so much fun that it became a team tradition. “The numbers worked out. Juniors versus seniors. And the seniors won every time,” said senior centerfielder Abbey Boyd, with a smile. “We really got hooked on Charades,” the academic all-stater added. On the softball field, there were no charades by this Trevians team, which finished the spring with a 29-5-1 record. The Trevians just missed picking up win No. 30, when they were upset by Warren 3-2 in nine innings in the semifinal round of the Class 4A Stevenson Sectional on June 3. “I think how close we became off the field played a huge part in our success,” Boyd said. “The season ended early, but I was so proud to be part of this group of girls.” Added senior third baseman Megan Neuhaus: “We were so close outside of softball and that made practices and games so much fun.” New Trier also had frequent team dinners that often morphed into more games of Charades. “Every couple of weeks, we shortened practice a little bit and went out for a pasta or pizza dinner,” Boyd said. “That gave us another excuse to hang out with each other and build chemistry.” On offense, the depth and balance of the Trevians’ lineup wore out opposing pitchers. Boyd (.425, 17 doubles, 5 triples) and junior second baseman Lilly Novak (.407, 24 RBIs, 17 doubles) each hit better than .400. Junior outfielder Amanda Howell (.384, 5 home run, 33 RBI), junior infielder/outfielder Laura Bagan (.381, 19 RBIs), senior first baseman/pitcher Lauren Secaras (.365, 9 HRs, 37 RBIs), Allison Quigley (.363, 23 RBIs), Catrina Melidones (.315, 20 runs, 7 doubles) and Neuhaus (.311, 26 runs) all batted better than .300.

Pay dirt: New Trier catcher Dana Dolinka blocks the plate against Warren’s Michelle Vasen. But her tag was a hair too late as Vasen scored the tying run in the sectional semifinal game. The Trevians wound up losing the game 3-2 in nine innings. photography by joel lerner

As a team, the Trevians hit .334. “We were tough every single inning no matter who was up,” said Neuhaus, who will play at Wheaton College next season. “We didn’t have to wait for our top hitters to get a run.” Boyd will move on to Northwestern University in the fall. Novak also will play at NU in 2016. “I’m really excited to see her come to Northwestern,” Boyd said. “It’s (great) that New Trier was able to produce two Northwestern softball players.” Secaras, who stood out as a hitter and

pitcher (11-2, 2.89 ERA), will continue her career at Denison University in Ohio. One of New Trier’s few question marks coming into the year was the catcher position. With Lee Fisher out with a shoulder injury, infielder/pitcher Dana Dolinko was drafted to play catcher. “Lee helped out Dana who was willing to step up and try a new position,” said senior pitcher Allison Quigley, who will pitch at Middlebury College in Vermont. “She learned what my habits were and what I was going to do. I became very comfortable throwing to her.”

Quigley dominated the opposition for most of the season. She was 18-3-1 with a 0.61 ERA. She struck out 243 batters while issuing just 22 walks. She finished the campaign with 15 shutouts. Last spring, she earned all-state honors with a 21-1 record. “Most of the time we didn’t have to do a lot of work on defense because she was striking people out,” Boyd said. “Playing behind her gave us a lot of confidence.” All told, seven Trevians earned allCSL North honors: Bagan, Boyd, Howell, Neuhaus, Novak, Quigley and Secaras. ■

Loyola’s O’Malley gives his all in playoff loss ■ by kevin reiterman Fran O’Malley, one of the top receivers on the Loyola Academy football team, spent the fall season making diving catches. So it only figures that he would dive into first base on his final at-bat as a member of the Ramblers baseball team. “Go out with a bang,” said O’Malley, following his team’s 4-3 setback to second-seeded New Trier in a Class 4A sectional semifinal game at the Munz Athletic Complex on June 5. “I did the same thing in last year’s regional final game. I was safe then, too.” By sliding head first and beating the

throw to first base on a double play attempt with one out in the top of the seventh, O’Malley was credited with his second RBI of the game to cut NT’s lead to 4-3. Hitting No. 5 in the batting order, O’Malley, who eventually was stranded at first base as the game ended, had a productive outing for Loyola (12-21-1). In addition to catching four fly balls in center field, he drew a walk in the fourth inning and added a twoout, run-scoring single in the fifth inning. “Getting Fran back in the lineup and having him healthy was huge for us,” said LA head coach Nick Bridich. O’Malley missed nearly six weeks of the baseball season after re-aggravating a back injury which he sustained in Week One of the football season.

“It was tough to run,” said O’Malley. The left-handed hitting senior outfielder managed to make up for some lost time. He had a strong finish and ended up as the team’s third leading hitter with a .351 batting average in 68 plate appearances. O’Malley will turn his full attention to football now. In the fall, he caught 40 passes for 489 yards for the Class 8A state runnerup. Along with high school teammates Joe Dixon and Tommy Nickele, he will play football this fall at the University of St. Thomas. The Minnesota school is loaded with LA talent. The roster includes Rambler grads Charlie Dowdle, Eric Bielinski, Darby Goodwin and Brendan Murphy. Tommy Bordignon, who will play baseball at Northwestern University, led the

Ramblers in hitting this spring. The allconference selectee hit .434 with 35 runs and 13 doubles. He had two hits, including a run-scoring double in the third inning, against the Trevians. The team’s other top hitter was first baseman Jacob Frank, who batted .382 with 15 doubles and 21 RBIs. He had a double in the fourth inning against NT. Junior Jack Yalowitz, who also made all-conference for LA, took the loss against New Trier. He struck out seven in five innings but gave up four runs on seven hits. “I was leaving some pitches up,” said Yalowitz, who ended the season with a 2.79 earned run average. “This was a tough loss, especially since we were catching fire at the end of the year.” ■

Trevs fall at state; Chakravorti receives national nod ■ by bill mclean Shortly after taking a seat at a table for a media session following a state volleyball quarterfinal, Dominick Terry looked up at a handful of journalists and uttered a word: “Wow,” the Lake Park High School senior outside hitter said at Hoffman Estates High School on June 6. But he wasn’t overly impressed with the question askers and scribblers. Terry reacted to his club’s 25-16, 26-24 defeat of New Trier. The match — NT’s first state appearance since 2011 — lasted a snappy 49 minutes. “That’s a good word, wow,” Lancers coach Tim Murphy chimed. “A good defense,” he added, “frustrates opponents. Our defense was fantastic today.” New Trier’s super season ended with a 32-8 record. The Trevians hadn’t lost a match since falling 25-27, 25-17, 15-11 to Lincoln-Way West at the Lincoln-Way East Tournament on May 3. “I was proud,” NT coach Sue Ellen Haak said at the state press conference. “We didn’t play our best, but we hung in. “We just missed on a couple of opportunities.” A kill by Trevians sophomore outside hitter Peter Hindsley (team-high six kills) cut LP’s lead to 12-11 in the first set. The Lancers (33-6), who ended up fourth at state in their third Elite Eight appearance, scored the next three points and capped the first set with a 7-0 run. “We knew them; they knew us,” Murphy said, referring to his squad’s 2-1 record against NT in the regular season. “We knew [New Trier senior middle blocker and MIT-bound Jack Serrino] is a beast. Our seniors had been here before [as state quarterfinalists two year ago], and that gave us a little advantage.” The teams were tied nine times in the second set. Trevians senior jump-serve specialist Eric Gantner knotted it at 24-24 with his fourth ace of the match following a Lake Park service error. “New Trier is a very good team,” Murphy said. “[It’s] a team somewhat similar to our team, in that you can’t key on one guy.” Serrino finished with four kills and a block. Senior rightside hitter Whitt Ryan pounded three kills. Trevians junior setter Dante Chakravorti lofted 15 assists, while junior libero Brian Hammes (5 digs) and Hindsley (4) paced NT’s defense. “We were good this year,” said Serrino, who was selected to compete in the Illinois High School Volleyball Coaches Association Senior All-Star Match at Brother Rice on June 9. “But next year’s team will be really good with a lot of depth.” Among New Trier’s significant highlights this spring were its runner-up showing at the highly competitive Wheaton Warrenville South Invitational in April and its sectional championship at home against Loyola Academy on June 3. New Trier last hosted a sectional in 2005. Haak’s crew enjoyed nine- and 11-match winning streaks. “Our team was close,” said Trevians senior Tanner Straker said. “Four or five of our guys have been best friends since birth.”

Notable: Hindsley struck 11 kills, and Chakravorti fed 25 assists in NT’s 29-27, 25-18 defeat of visiting Loyola in a sectional final on June 3. Serrino (6 kills, 5 blocks), Ryan (5 kills, 4 blocks), Hammes (8 digs) and sophomore outside hitter Henry Lindstrom (5 kills) also stood out for the victors. … Chakravorti, a Glencoe resident and club volleyball member of Glenview-based Vortex, was one of 19 boys under the age of 19 selected for USA Volleyball’s Boys’ Youth National Training Team (BYNTT). The team will be cut to 12 and

compete July 14-20 at the NORCECA Under-19 Continental Championship in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in conjunction with the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships. Twelve of the 19 live in California; Chakravorti is the lone player from Illinois. … New Trier’s appearance at state last weekend was its sixth in program history and third under Haak, who guided her ’07 team to state runner-up honors. New Trier captured the state championship in 1995 under

Debra Kirch. That squad went 33-4 and didn’t lose a set in three state matches. … Haak’s overall record in 13 seasons at New Trier is 351-142 (.712). … Hindsley, Serrino, Hammes and Chakravorti made the all-Central Suburban League South team. … Hammes amassed 18 of his teamhigh 285 digs in one match this spring. … Thirty-four of New Trier senior setter Matt Consolo’s 86 assists in 2014 came in one match. ■

66 | perfect weekend tom and amie

find relaxation in California wine country When Amie and Tom Marks are served a glass of sparkling wine and an exquisite lunch outdoors at Domaine Chandon in Napa Valley, they know the stress created by jobs and day-to-day living has been left behind. “It’s gorgeous — it’s rolling hills of vineyards,” says Amie. That’s one stop during their tour of Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley. With Calistoga Spa Hot Springs — complete with mineral and mud baths — as a base, the Marks hire a driver and tour wineries, both to sip fine choices and to add bottles to their collection.

“The hotel has beautiful views. It’s such a romantic place.” “Rutherford Grove has great reds, and it’s a lovely place to sit outside,” Amie says. “Sterling has one of the best wine tours — the red tasting room is a highlight. Miner Family Winery has incredible wine, and they’re the nicest family.” To stay in shape after indulging in top-notch food and wine — including dinner at the French Laundry, which requires a reservation well in advance — the Marks go biking. To relax afterwards, the spa at Calistoga is always enticing, and then a seat in a chair outdoors. Says Amie, “The hotel has beautiful views. It’s such a romantic place.” — David Sweet
