A sport I wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole

put your head in the clouds, and yo u r b o dy, to o .

You’ll think you’re dreaming at our

annual down sale.

That’s because all our superior European goose down products are 25% off through the 31st.

A

pole vaulter I am not. Never have been. The idea of running hard while holding what looks like an enlarged pool cue, planting it at exactly the right moment and flying through the air thanks to its powers of propulsion — and then landing flat on my back — is a sport best done by others. Golf seems a tad safer (though the caddy who was unable to dodge my low line-drive hook recently may think differently). I once interviewed a man who was a champion pole vaulter, among his other athletic feats. Rafer Johnson — who captured the gold medal in the 1960 Rome Olympics for the decathlon — was brave enough to lift himself over the bar time and again. But he wasn’t Superman: ironically enough, he told me that before he lit the flame at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, he asked for a waist-sized pole to be engorged in the ground at the top of the Coliseum. The reason? When he held the torch and looked over the magnificent panorama of people and flags, he could grab it rather than collapse from the overwhelming sight.

Of all the field sports, no athlete overcomes more physical and mental challenges than the pole vaulter (that shot put is pretty heavy, but to hoist it doesn’t chicago take a massive amount of mental agility). It’s hard 773 404 2020 to believe that one family in the area has reared not one, but two, outstanding practitioners of the sport. Sisters Ofelia and Carolina Carmichael of Lake Forest are shining at the University of Memphis as pole vaulters. 8.14 BSM NSW Down sale.indd 1 But there are others from the North Shore who are deft with the fiberglass pole. Why did they chose this unusual sport? How do they overcome fear of flopping? Bill McLean offers a full report inside, complemented by Joel Lerner’s outstanding photographs. Enjoy the weekend.

ACE is the place

Craft exposition draws artists from across the country

Evanston jeweler Jonathan Rutledge is a former firefighter who now designs jewelry fulltime.

■ by joanna brown Evanston native Jonathan Rutledge is a college graduate, a former firefighter, and a military veteran who was honored for his work repairing F-16 jets at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany. But the accomplishment of which he is most proud — the day he strained his facial muscles from smiling so widely for so long — was the day he received the People’s Choice Award at the American Craft Exposition (ACE). It was his first exhibition as a jewelry designer — and a huge vote of confidence as he launched a new career. “I lift weights a lot and I’ve always got sore muscles, but that time was different,” recalled Rutledge, who will exhibit at the fine craft exposition and sale for the 10th time this year. “That’s what gave me the confidence to leave the fire department and pursue jewelry fulltime.” The American Craft Exposition is a juried art show presented by the Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem to benefit ovarian cancer research. Rutledge is one of more than 150 artists working in jewelry, ceramics, metals, fashion, glass, furniture, fibercrafts, leather, wood and mixed media who will exhibit American-made pieces at Evanston’s Henry Crown Sports Pavilion Aug. 21-24. The show celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. “I had no idea that ACE was one of the top shows in the country when I applied for its emerging artist program 10 years ago,” Rutledge said. He uses high-karat gold (which has a rich yellow color), gemstones, and an ancient technique called granulation to create pieces influenced by Greek cultures. In addition to the sale, Rutledge considers the weekend an opportunity to interact with those he considers the top contemporary craft artists. “It’s great to talk with them and find out more about them, explore their work and show them what I’ve been working on,” he said. Among them will be California woodturner Mike Shuler, back for his fourth year at ACE. His vessels of various shapes are created with a lathe, which spins the wood

New Hampshire artist Betsy Giberson uses a multi-step process to dye silk she uses to create dresses and constructed scarves. She has participated in ACE for about 25 years because the volunteer team of show managers put on such a unique event. “It’s very, very special that this show is for a cause —

“Ask the artists about where they’re from and how they got started and what their process is. That’s what we’re here for — to talk." | Betsy Giberson for women’s health,” Giberson said. “It’s run by volunteers who find and encourage high-quality artists to apply (to be exhibitors), and they support American-made art in such an important way.” She encouraged guests to interact with the exhibitors. “Ask the artists about where they’re from and how they

got started and what their process is. That’s what we’re here for — to talk.” But there are ways, too, for guests to interact with the artists away from their exhibit booths. Shuler is one of a few artists who will demonstrate his technique at ACE’s Craft in Action stage, a space which allows attendees to see how some of the show’s most extraordinary pieces are created. “Woodturning goes back to my youth, but it is something that has to be shared,” he said. “I like to teach. I’m not going to be around forever and I want to leave as much behind as I can, so I teach as much as I can.” And Giberson will emcee a fashion show of wearable art modeled by ovarian cancer survivors like ACE co-chair Debbie Hulick, of Winnetka. Hulick was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer seven years ago and was successfully treated by NorthShore University HealthSystem doctor Gustavo Rodriguez at the Kellogg Cancer Center. “I’m not model material, but for this cause, I will do it,” she said of her participation in the fashion show. “Artists pull pieces from the show for us, and we parade through the café area so that people get to feel the material and admire the items. One year I got to wear a $250,000 bracelet — that was fun! “But it’s really important for use to show all ends of the craft process. You might look at a bowl in a booth and think that you can find the same thing at the mall, but to see artists physically work it with their hands is incredible.” Hulick’s efforts to chair the benefit craft show with Susan White of Lake Forest are a show of gratitude for the care she received from NorthShore. Her cancer is in remission. “I have three daughters, and the money we raise at ACE will help the next generation of kids that could face ovarian cancer,” Hulick said. Giberson encouraged first-time ACE attendees to take their time and enjoy the view. “Walk the aisles the first time to get an overview and make notes about what you want to see more of. Then make a second round to get a closer look.” ■ Find more information at americancraftexpo.org.

■ by simon murray “We believe speed is the single greatest differentiator in sports,” explains the shaggy-haired sports performance coach in gym shorts. “And we approach all of our training with that as our goal.” It’s a beautiful summer day, so the garage doors are open at TC Boost in Northbrook. As natural light floods the space and mixes with the artificial light dangling 24 feet above the turf, speakers arrayed around the facility belt out alternative and hard rock. Everclear comes on the speakers, promising to buy you a garden.

“Our goal is to make you fast, explosive and healthy” | Tommy Christian Tommy Christian, the director of training at TC Boost, can do one better; promising the various athletes that walk through his garage doors a custom-tailored approach to sports training. But speed doesn’t come easy. “We want you to be strong; we’re going to use some traditional lifts, we’re going to use some nontraditional lifts,” says Christian as he spots Garret Laflamme, a 6-foot-4, 275-pound offensive tackle in the supine position on the ground, his hands clenching 100-pound dumbbells and raising them above his chest. “But our goal is not to see how much you can squat or lift or deadlift. Our goal is to make you fast, explosive and healthy.” Laflamme finishes his set, sweat beading on his brow. Christian barks words of encouragement and Laflamme, of Illinois Wesleyan University, walks over to the lateral pull-down machine. His two-hour session has just begun. Christian, with his laid-back attitude and gray swaths in patches across his surfer hairdo and beard, is reminiscent of Jeffrey Lebowski, or “The Dude,” the pulp-hero

protagonist of the Coen brother’s “The Big Lebowski” — albeit, a much more fit, clean-cut and eloquent version. He also boasts quite the resume. After attending Northwestern University and earning a degree in mechanical engineering, Christian worked in the automobile industry until he decided to trade piston for sinew, returning in an unpaid internship position with the strength and conditioning department at his alma mater. When he left his fulltime position in 2002 to establish his own speed program, he had worked his way up to assistant director of strength and conditioning for the abundant Division I teams at Northwestern. And, until 2011, he oversaw the off-season speed work of the football program, the Wildcats. “I always felt, for me, sports had a big impact on my life,” says Christian, who was a former starting linebacker for the Wildcats and whose brother, Bob Christian — also a Wildcat —enjoyed a career as a fullback in the NFL for 10 years (and who is co-owner and a director of TC Boost). Look around the 10,000-square-foot facility and familiar names and jerseys — signed, of course — deck the walls: Scheyer, Getz, Dempster, Wooton, Garza. So while the goal of the facility was to bring comprehensive speed development of the highest level to high school athletes and anyone looking to get an edge, the professionals — eager to get a boost themselves for the combine, the draft, and the season — have at one time or another utilized the intimate training the center provides. “What’s the role in developing an athlete?” asks Christian, rhetorically. “You need to develop strength and power. But the end goal has to be: how do you translate that into movement on the field? It’s never third down and ‘how much can you bench?’; it’s never the game winning shot and ‘you better squat a ton.’ The ultimate goal becomes how do you apply that. “Watching the pros, they’re big strong guys for sure. But the most impressive thing is watching the way that they move and how athletic they are. That’s why they come to us, to improve that athleticism and movement and refinement of their power.” ■

Orren and Tina Pickell celebrated his 60th birthday in style. PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOEL LERNER.

Tina and Orren Pickell have enjoyed trips to fantastic spots, such as Caneel Bay on St. John’s Island. But just two weekends ago, they celebrated the jaunt of a lifetime with 55 friends for Orren’s 60th birthday in Napa Valley. “It was incredible,” says Orren, who runs an eponymous building firm in Northfield. “What makes a place great is the people you are with. I’ve never had a better time.” Friends from all parts of his life — including high school, college and his children’s friends whom he has befriended — traveled to the Silverado Resort, which is spread across more than 1,000 acres. Though not a golfer, Orren had a blast playing a scramble one morning, where plenty of golf balls with the “Orren’s 60” logo were lost. A trip on Napa’s wine train was memorable. “The service was impeccable, and the food was great,” he says of the ride in the Vista Dome car, which is two years older than Orren.

“What makes a place great is the people you are with. I’ve never had a better time.” Many guests conducted their own activities during the day, visiting vineyards and such. One evening, Tina arranged for everyone to get together for dinner at the Silverado. The Pickell children — Lisa, Eric and Matt — performed a Saturday Night Live-style comedy skit. “It was hilarious,” says Orren. “What I realized when I was there, everybody in that crowd I could honestly say I love them.” ■ - David Sweet

LOVE & MARRIAGE

Is this really getting away from it all? ■ by joanna brown Summer vacation season is reaching its height. Countless families have endured this conversation recently: Spouse #1: Are we still planning to drive up north Thursday? Spouse #2. Yes. Let’s leave in the morning. Spouse #1: Great. I’ve set aside Wednesday to pack the car and get things together. Spouse #2: A whole day to pack the car? How much stuff do we need? Spouse #1: We each need clothes for the wedding Saturday and the rehearsal dinner Friday, and plenty of regular clothes. The kids all need stuff to do in the car; I need to stock up on snacks and find all of our chargers. Should we buy a car charger for the iPad?

“A staggering 62 percent of couples admit to bickering up to three times per day on vacation.” And thus, your family vacation — full of early headaches — is underway. Do family vacations make memories? Of course! Stop anyone you see on the street, of any generation, and they will tell you something about their favorite family trip. But do they also make you angry? The research says this is a good possibility. A 2012 survey of 2,000 participants by British travel site Latedeals. co.uk found that 78 percent of couples have at least two major arguments on a two-week vacation. A staggering 62 percent of couples admit to bickering up to three times per day on vacation — possibly because of the expectations each person brings to the vacation – and 6 percent of couples even admitted to asking for separate rooms at some point during their vacation due to unresolved tensions.

Even more interesting are the respondents’ top reasons for arguing while on vacation. They include: Where to eat and what to have. Spending too much money. Disagreements over what to do, such as sightseeing or relaxing. Disagreements on how early to get to the airport. Arguments over driving in foreign countries and reading maps. Women becoming irritated when they find their partners checking out other women at the beach or pool. Men packing too little and women packing too much. And women taking too long to get ready. From a distance, these seem ridiculous — but as a woman who recently referred to her husband as Imelda (as in the shoe-hording Marcos), I know that tensions are high when suitcases get involved. But maybe, just maybe, these angry vacationers have the right idea. A different survey from India found that arguing once a week might be the secret to strong, happy unions. Forty-four percent of respondents said that fighting helps keep the lines of communication open. Researchers from the University of Minnesota said this study echoes some from Western countries, which determined that arguing and addressing problems constructively make for a more stress-free relationship than bottling them up. Please note that none of the studies condone fighting — nor do they ignore that abusive and bitter fights are destructive. So what’s the lesson today? Pack what you like, and say what you’re thinking. And for goodness sake leave the bigger suitcase for your wife or girlfriend’s wardrobe.; your primary responsibility is to load it into and out of the trunk. ■ Love & Marriage columnist Joanna Brown can be reached at Joanna@ northshoreweekend.com.

On Aug. 23 — one of the last Saturdays before the school year begins — it will host its 2nd annual Last Blast of Summer. “It’s a lot like a neighborhood block party,” Winnetka Community House Development Associate Michelle Hodalj says. “It definitely has that feel of running into people and seeing people you haven’t seen in awhile.”

“It’s a lot like a neighborhood block party.” | Michelle Hodalj Unlike your standard block party, though, the Last Blast boasts eight different carnival games, four inflatables, a climbing wall, live entertainment, and a slew of activities sponsored by local non-profits, like the Kohl Children’s Museum and the North Shore Art League. Last year, the event drew around 400 people to the front lawn of the Winnetka Community House and appealed to mostly young children and families. “This year,” Hodalj says. “We’re hoping to get more middle-schoolers and teens there.” One performer certain to draw a slightly older crowd is an incoming junior at New Trier High School, Jordan Xidas. Fresh-faced and charismatic, Xidas started playing guitar when he was just seven years old.

“I started writing songs pretty much right after I could play chords,” he says. Xidas played at the Last Blast the previous year, having reached out to several communities in the area to see if there were any available gigs. “The Winnetka Community House is so awesome,” Xidas says. “It’s nice to have that relationship where they were like, ‘We thought you were great, so we’d like to have you back again.’ ” This year, Xidas will play a mix of top 50 covers (“Love Runs Out” by One Republic is a surefire favorite) and original songs off his EP, which he released in November. Another young performer, Preston Fulks, is a drummer and an incoming senior at New Trier. He played his first gig at the Winnetka Youth Organization two years ago, which is housed in the basement of the Winnetka Community House. Since then, he and his jam band, The Fruitful Dave, have played popular Chicago venues, such as the Bottom Lounge, Double Door, and Reggie’s. At his Last Blast debut, Fulks says they’ll play “some more up tempo, happier stuff,” and a few more covers than they usually would. “We want to keep it intimate and have people be aware of what we’re doing,” Fulks says. “Everyone’s outside and having fun, so it’ll be a little more relaxed.” Though Fulks and Xidas differ in style and musical taste, they are both grateful for the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of a local audience. “When I’m performing on stage and I look at all my band members, I get a feeling I can’t get from anything else,” Fulks says. “There’s just an indescribable feeling you get from playing music and having people enjoy what you’re doing.” ■

WINES OF THE WEEK ■ by johnson ho In this era of buttery Chardonnays and grassy Sauvignon Blancs dominating the sales aisles, elegant thirst quenching and vibrant white wines have become hard to find. By stepping back a few centuries, we can rediscover some of the favorite summer gems of European nobility served from al fresco picnics to sunset soiree parties

SATURDAY DINNER

2009 Georges Vernay Condrieu Coteau de Vernon, Rhone, France; $100. The tiny

region of Condrieu (“Con-dree-yew”) lies at the gateway to the Provence in Southern France. The Viognier (“VeeO-neeay”) grape excels on the steep rocky slopes, bathing in bright sunlight all summer.  The floral bouquet and opulent flavors of fresh “stone” fruit (with pits, e.g. plum, peach or apricot) unleash a potpourri of succulent delights.  Favored with river seafood dishes like trout, scallops, frog legs and carp or with crepes stuffed with poultry or veal recipes. The silky texture seduces the palate with remarkable panache! Serve slightly chilled.

MIDWEEK MEAL

2011 Domaine Regis Cruchet Vouvray Sec, Loire, France; $25

When the veterans of World War I returned stateside, they raved about the delicious white wines from the village of Vouvray while recovering from wounds in the field hospital caves dug underneath the chalky vineyards. The Granny Smith and Gala apple taste of the Chenin Blanc grapes provided much needed comfort and a great source of vitamins for them. Vouvrays are among the longest-keeping white wines in the world.  When less than four years old, they display a slightly tangy green pear and apple quality.   Over five years, a discernible baked apple tart slowly emerges, and the color turns more golden.  Look for the word “Sec” (dry) if no sweetness is preferred for rich veal, pork or shell fish dishes, “Demi Sec” (half dry) if you need a fabulous partner for salty, spicy or lean dishes, and “Moelleux” (sweet) for smoked meats or desserts..

BEST VALUE

2012 Chateau du Poyet Muscadet Sevre & Maine Vieilles Vignes Sur Lie, Loire, France; $16

The stand-by quaffing choice of bargainconscious Bistro and Cafe goers the light pleasant white wines from the Muscadet (“Mews-Kuh-Day”) region served the needs of poor college students and day laborers with ease. However, its low-quality image tarnished its popularity at fine restaurants until a small contingent of passionate estates decided to raise their standards significantly.  By segregating the old vines (Vieilles Vignes pronounced “Vee-Ay Veen”) with their long roots that extract more soil nutrients as well as aging the wine in clean barrels Sur Lie (“Ssure Lee” or on remnants of grapes and yeast) for additional months, their wines gained richness, mellowness and power to stand up to gamy fish, pungent (goat) cheeses or pates.  Best drinking at 2-4 years from vintage.

A MATTER OF TASTE

New chef rejiggers Guildhall offerings ■ by katie rose mceneely

Bradford Phillips is the new chef at Guildhall Restaurant in Glencoe. How did you start cooking? When I got to college, I took a bartending job to make extra money, and that turned into picking up prep cooking shifts during the day in the summer. I enjoyed being in the kitchen more than being on the floor. When I finished school, I took a year and got a job in a good restaurant in Indiana. I got thrown into the deep end of the pool, and I found out pretty early on it was something I really wanted to do.

“At this point in my career, I only want to be associated with quality, with people who take their jobs professionally.” | Bradford Phillips Years cooking? 18, 19 years. There are two years of culinary school in there. Bradford Phillips photography by joel lerner What brought you to Guildhall? There’s a strong association with a lot of the major players at Guildhall. The opening chef, conversation. I knew from the first that this Christian, and I were colleagues [at the Park was a great environment. They’re doing great Hyatt]. A couple of the consultants are people food, and they have a great following.

What have you brought to the menu? We just did our first menu cycling; we changed up seven items, changing recipes to update the menu seasonally. We tried to make it more fish-friendly and work more aggressively with local suppliers. Favorite cuisine? Southern French and Northern Italian. I love artichokes and lemons and herbs and olive oil. I’ve worked with a couple of chefs from that part of the world, so I definitely bring that in, whether it’s handmade pasta or simply roasted meats, which are the two backbones of what we’re going to be doing at Guildhall. Worthwhile gadget? A microplane. It’s great for zest but also cheese and garlic. Most memorable kitchen incident? I was working at Blackbird in 1999, and it’s a memorable time because everyone I worked with on the line is running their own restaurant now. We were a bunch of knuckleheads towards the end of the night. We had been really busy and were doing a dish with watercress, which is almost always compressed in wax cardboard boxes. As a cook, you hated it — it was messy, and they had these huge brass staples. We were screwing around, and we had a wood-burning grill. Just to prove a point to ourselves or to the box, we threw it on the flame. Well, waxed cardboard doesn’t burn too well, so the dining room filled with thick smoke. We still had guests in the dining room. Not what we were anticipating. ■ Guildhall Restaurant is located at 694 Vernon Avenue in Glencoe.

Let’s Talk Real Estate by Jean Wright, President/Broker Owner Crs, GrI

LOan FundamentaLs: What Is a mOrtGaGe? Mortgage is the term collectively used by most people when they refer to a loan used to buy real estate. This can be misleading, in that these securities are not always mortgages, but deeds of trust. A true mortgage is a written contract that specifies how the property will be used as a term of security for the loan. In these contracts, the primary mortgage lender will usually have a first lien on the property, giving the lender priority over all other lien holders, with the only exception being a tax lien. In a true mortgage contract, all due taxes must be paid prior to closing and the mortgager (borrower and buyer of real estate) is required to pay into an escrow account specifically earmarked for taxes and insurance, thereby protecting the interests of the primary lender. In these contracts, however, the title of the property is in the name of the mortgager, not the lender; should the mortgager default on the loan, the lender (mortgagee) is required to foreclose on the property in court. If the court approves the action, the property is sold to the highest bidder. A deed of trust differs from a mortgage in that it gives the title to a neutral third party (trustee) who is partial to neither the interests of the borrower nor the lender. In these contracts, the lender is the beneficiary; should the borrower (trustor) default on the loan, the lender then asks the trustee (neutral third party) to foreclose on the property. Following the procedure set forth in the deed of trust and adhering to state laws and regulations, the trustee then forecloses on the property. Lenders prefer deeds of trusts over true mortgages for the provision of security in the event of a defaulted loan due to their quicker and less costly method of foreclosure. The ease and security of deeds of trust has not weakened the state of mortgage contracts. Mortgages are still the prevalent security instrument in many states whose laws and regulations favor the specifications of mortgage contracts. These states are called lien theory states. States whose legal regulations favor deeds of trust are referred to as title theory states. Other states have adapted their legal structures to an intermediary approach, which grants security to both the borrower and the lender in cases of default. The intermediary approach makes provisions for deeds of trust, but also requires the lender to provide a notice of foreclosure to the borrower prior to the physical repossession, allowing the borrower the opportunity to rectify the default. Before entering into any kind of real estate contract, discuss with both your Realtor® and your lender whether you live in a lien or title theory state, or if your state takes an intermediary approach. Though one never enters into a contract with the goal to default on the loan, it is important in today’s economy to be informed and well-prepared for the worst-case scenario.

Gold Coast 19th-century residence stays true to architect’s intent

Original stained glass and intricate woodwork are a hallmark of the estate.

■ by ann marie scheidler Designed by architect August Fielder in 1891, a Chicago estate rests on the largest privately owned single-family lot in the Gold Coast. The historic residence has been impeccably maintained and restored, remaining true to Fielder’s Romanesque intent, while integrating state-of-the-art amenities. Original stained glass, mosaic tile fireplace surrounds, inlaid flooring, and intricate woodwork complement modern conveniences such as Traulsen, Miele and Wolf appliances, opulent fix-

dining room adjacent to a luxurious kitchen with stained glass skylight. Each room on this level features a custom fireplace. “While this property has served many purposes over the years, it’s at its best as a family home,” Lurie notes. The second floor boasts 12 bedrooms, including a master suite with walk-in closet and luxurious bath. Each bedroom is paired with custom lighting fixtures and detailed finishes, as well as generous storage and lavish baths. Perfect for entertaining, the lower level includes a commercial grade catering kitchen and plenty of open space, with a separate guest apartment complete with full kitchen.

“There’s a warmth to this home unlike any I’ve ever seen.” | Sarah Lurie tures, a full-sized elevator, and sidewalk radiant heat. “People must know when they look at this property that it’s a home — not a museum,” says @Property’s listing agent Sarah Lurie. “There’s a warmth to this home unlike any I’ve ever seen.” The expansive first floor on Dearborn features a charming foyer, sunny living area, library, solarium, and grand

The sprawling garden allows for a captivating array of flowers and trees, accessible by brick pathways that sweep throughout a five-car garage and charming coach house. And more space is available for additional parking or landscape development. “There is no lot in the city with a yard like this home has,” says Lurie. ■

August Fielder’s exterior has remained true to its Romanesque intent.

RAREFIED AIR

Daring athletes drawn to the art — and adrenaline rush — of pole vaulting

■ by bill mclean sports@northshoreweekend.com The best moment in Brandon Kiraly’s athletic career occurred while falling from the sky — without a parachute. Deerfield High School’s pole vault coach was a pole vaulter at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater at the time, having realized he’d cleared a personal-best effort of 16-feet, 3-inches at a track and field meet in 2012. “That’s the greatest feeling in the world,” says the DHS graduate. “I absolutely loved it, the instant I knew I had made it. “Those two seconds, on the way down,” he adds, “I was celebrating.” Carolina Carmichael knows the feeling. The 2012 Lake Forest High School graduate and University of Memphis junior had enough strength left to joyously pump both of her fists above a cross bar during a highly successful college vault. On her way back to earth she yelled, “Yes!” “That rush, that sense that you’re flying … that’s what keeps us vaulting,” says Carmichael, whose older sister, Ofelia Carmichael (LFHS, ’11), vaulted at Division III North Central College in Naperville and transferred to D-I Memphis before the start of the 2013-14 academic year. “There’s nothing like pole vaulting,” she adds. “Nothing.” It’s a daunting and demanding discipline, a field event ideally suited for anybody interested in becoming a stunt person/body double in action-packed movies. Pole vaulting is physically and mentally draining, attractive to brave souls with penchants for altering jet streams. Unlike high jumpers, long jumpers and triple jumpers, pole vaulters must rely on a crucial piece of equipment (a carbon fiber or fiberglass pole) — in addition to sheer athleticism — in order to achieve feats. Pole vaulting requires upper-body strength, speed, acute body awareness, gymnastics-esque flexibility, patience, persistence and unshakable confidence. Fearful athletes need not apply. “Pole vaulting is 99 percent mental,” insists Carly Schmidt (LFHS, ’13), who recently transferred from Auburn University to two-time reigning NAIA outdoor women’s track and field champion Indiana Tech in Fort Wayne. “Some people think all we do is run, get up in the air and hope to clear a bar. But pole vaulting is so much more than that. “Everything has to be meticulously planned,” adds the 2013 Class 3A state pole vault champion. “There’s so much preparation involved, and the more you’re prepared the better you are mentally. So many things go into it … it’s crazy.” The stages of a vault: grip a lengthy, unwieldy pole; sprint down a runway without fumbling the lengthy, unwieldy pole or veering perilously to the right or to the left; plant pole in a box while running at full speed; bend pole; swing up; get hips north of head; spin at the apex of the launch; attempt to avoid bar resting on pegs; plummet; and, finally, land on an expansive mat, preferably shoulders or back first. Crazy. “There are about 8 million things you could think about as a pole vaulter, unfortunately,” Kiraly says. “The key is simplifying it, thinking about no more than one thing [while approaching the plant box]. You might want to focus only on the flight plan or the swing phase or maybe the rock-back. “It’s an up-and-down sport, pole vaulting,” he adds. “It’s not easy, especially when you have to deal with the lows of it and the challenges of overcoming fears.” Fear shook Alec Deer on his first day as a pole vaulter >> TO 39

at Highland Park High School in 2011. He was 5-foot-2 at the time, “maybe 5-3,” he says. And he weighed about 120 pounds. “I wanted to be a hurdler,” recalls Deer (HPHS, ’14), now a 5-6, 150-pounder. “Freshman year, I got to a practice a little early, and [then-senior] David Berk said to me, ‘Try this; try pole vaulting.’ I did. It was really scary at first. I wasn’t good then. I definitely thought I was a waste of time [for the coaching staff]. But I was fortunate, having a David Berk around my first year.” Berk holds the school pole-vault record, 15 feet. The summer before his sophomore year, Deer improved his personal-best height by a notable 2 feet, 3 inches after throwing himself into the discipline via drills, lifting and vaulting. He didn’t just turn heads; he turned heads upward. Deer was named a Giants captain his senior year and cleared a personal-best 12-6. “You’re not going to be great right away; all pole vaulters discover that in a hurry,” Deer says. “That first day of practice, you might not even get off the ground. The best pole vaulters mess up … the best pole vaulters sometimes are off by one step, which ruins everything for them.” Highland Park’s best pole vaulter last spring was Eddie Smoliak. Now a senior, the 6-2, 180-pounder placed fifth in May at the Class 3A state track and field meet with a personal-best height of 14-6 — the fourth consecutive meet at which he supplanted a personal-best mark. Smoliak was all set to give gymnastics a try as a freshman when a sophomore convinced him to try his hand at clearing a high bar outdoors instead of gripping one indoors to execute a chalky flyaway. That sophomore’s name? Deer. “I’d never seen a pole vault competition on TV or a video of one,” Smoliak says. “But we did some drills on the first day, and I had a blast. I thought that was great, Alec asking me to join the pole vaulters that day. The practice lasted more than two hours. I remember thinking, ‘I’ve found something awesome.’ “What I learned early on was, once you learn how to bend the pole properly, the whole game changes.” Smoliak cleared 6-6 at his first meet, topping a field of frosh-soph vaulters in a triangular. In no time — his sophomore year — he was a 12-3 vaulter. He easily eclipsed his junior-season goal of 13-9 last spring. At the second meet of the season, he obliterated his previous personal record by nine inches. “People like to ask me, ‘Do you get scared when you’re up so high in the air?’ ” Smoliak says. “I tell them, ‘No, you get used to it.’ Every pole vaulter has a breakthrough [vault] at a meet or at a practice. Mine was when I realized, ‘Whoa, I can invert … and feel comfortable while doing it.’ ” Smoliak feels comfortable in his own skin — especially when it’s covered by something pink. He likes to don pink spikes, pink sunglasses and pink shin sleeves for meets. His water bottle? Think pink. “Pink,” Smoliak says, “is an aesthetically pleasing color to me. I’m flamboyant.” And colorful. And entertaining. And talented. The men’s indoor pole-vault world record holder is Renaud Lavillenie of France. He cleared 6.16 meters (a little more than 20 feet, 2 inches) at a meet in February. The exploit is available on YouTube. Matt Gibson has seen the footage at least 100 times. “As he’s about to run, his eyes … you can tell from his eyes that he’s completely fearless,” says Gibson, a 2014 Deerfield High School graduate who will attempt to make the men’s track and field team at the University of Rhode Island as a walk-on pole vaulter. “Then he runs; he’s so fast. Lavillenie’s plant that day is one of the strongest I’ve ever seen.” Gibson thought he’d take root as a sprinter his freshman year. But Warriors track and field coach Jeremy Kauffman told Gibson to work with the pole vaulters on Day 1. “I wasn’t the most in-shape freshman,” Gibson admits. “And I wasn’t the best sprinter. “I was nervous at first, watching the junior and senior pole vaulters we had.

state qualifiers Kyle Friedman, who wound up fifth at the 2011 meet, and Thomas Schweinfurth] were so good. “That was a little intimidating,” he adds. “But their presence was also beneficial. The next best thing to receiving quality coaching is observing teammates’ work habits and approaches to handling the technical aspects of the discipline. “It took me a while to figure it all out,” says the 5-9, 160-pound Gibson, who achieved a personal-best 13-0 last spring, two-plus years after he dwarfed his top height of 8-0 (as a freshman) with a 10-6 before the start of his sophomore season. “It was difficult at the beginning, really difficult. I could run, but swinging up, doing some of the other things … I struggled. “It eventually all clicked for me,” he adds. “Muscle memory kicked in, and I didn’t have to think too much while competing. Not thinking a lot — that’s a good thing in pole vaulting.” A significant thing in the development of the Carmichael sisters’ pole-vault games: coaching. They coach each other. Each also coaches Mundelein Mambas track club vaulters; some 20 youths, ranging from beginners to college-bound athletes, have pole, will travel (make that, … will soar). The Carmichaels’ mother, former heptathlete Toni, serves the club as its head coach. “That was a humbling experience at the beginning, coaching kids,” says Ofelia, who, like Carolina, competed for Lake Forest High School’s gymnastics teams. “I have a new-found respect for the track coaches I’ve had and what they had to go through when they coached me. “Coaching … it opens your eyes,” she adds. Carolina Carmichael’s prep career results at state mirrored the post-takeoff action of a strong vault. They climbed — steadily and impressively: She took third at the Class 3A state meet as a sophomore, then second as a junior, then first as a senior in 2012. “It’s crazy, pole vaulting, but it’s the good kind of crazy,” says the 5-5 Carolina, who earned All-America second-team status last spring after placing 10th (4.2 meters, or 13-feet-7 ¼) at the NCAA outdoor women’s track and field championships in Eugene, Ore. “A lot of times the mental part of pole vaulting is the toughest hurdle to overcome. But, physically, planting is basically everything. If that’s good, the rest of the jump is very, very easy. Plant late, though, and your timing will be off. “My [runway approach] is 115 feet, exactly 16 steps.” Jillian Schwartz, another LFHS product with a gymnastics background, took zero steps as a Scouts pole vaulter. She graduated in 1997 — four years before the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) added pole vault to its state events for girls. But Schwartz discovered the daredevilish event at the home of the Blue Devils, Duke University, and excelled at it pronto, landing All-America honors three times and later qualifying for two Summer Olympics. She represented the United States in Greece in 2004 and competed for Israel at the 2012 Summer Games in London. “She proved it’s never too late to start pole vaulting,” Ofelia Carmichael says. During his senior track and field season at HPHS, Deer was late for dinner. Often. The Giants’ polevault crew typically arrived at practice before any of the team’s other athletes did, and many of them stuck around until it was too difficult to see the cross bar. “We’d be there sometimes as late as 8:30 [p.m.],” says the University of Iowa-bound Deer, who will not go out for the Hawkeyes’ track and field team. “Janitors were also there, working around us. My parents [Steven and Wendy] liked to call me, wondering where I was. But they kept dinner warm for me until I got home.” For Schmidt, home away from home is well above a vault bar and just below the stratosphere. That’s where the 5-8 former Scout finally gets to exhale again. “That’s the best feeling up there, being able to breathe out, mostly because I hadn’t been able to do that the previous five minutes while waiting for my turn,” Schmidt says.” ■ Lake Forest High School grad Carly Schmidt.

With Kevin Reiterman & Bill McLean AT THE SHOOT-AROUND GIRLS BASKETBALL New Trier: Haley Greer, an all-conference point guard for Deerfield High School last winter, will wear a Trevians uniform this winter. The New Trier transfer also was a starter on the Deerfield soccer team last spring. But basketball is Greer’s No. 1 sport. Daughter of Chicago Bulls assistant coach Andy Greer, the 5-foot-11 junior had a stellar summer with Full Package Athletics. Full Package Elite, which also featured New Trier’s Jeannie Boehm and Rachel West, went 4-1 and finished third in the Adidas National Tournament in Atlanta (July 27-29). Under the direction of coach Matt Truding, FPA completed the summer with a 34-9 record and finished in the top six in four major tournaments. “Haley makes our team go,” said Truding. “She handles the ball, and she can score in a variety of ways.” Boehm has played club ball with Greer for three seasons. “She’s just as great a person off the court as she is on the court,” said the 6-3 junior center. “She’ll have a huge impact on our team. She’s a terrific passer who also can score in bunches. She’s an offensive threat.” Meanwhile, Boehm has put together an outstanding offseason. She has received five scholarship offers: Illinois, DePaul, Arizona, Missouri and Virginia Tech. “She had a monster summer,” said Truding. “She dominated some kids.” “It’s slowed down now,” the coach added.

“But for a while there, I was receiving 10 calls a day from college coaches. I became her personal answering service.” West, a 6-1 senior forward, also is receiving interest. “She had a breakout summer,” said Truding, “She works real well with Jeannie.” ROAMING THE SIDELINES FOOTBALL Lake Forest: Senior linebacker Jack Traynor has attended four Ivy League camps this summer: Harvard, Princeton, Penn and Yale. Earlier this summer, he received a scholarship offer from Western Illinois University. New Trier: Kevin Mulhern and his fellow running backs figure to pile up plenty of rushing yards this fall. According to new head coach Brian Doll, the Trevians will feature a couple of 300pound tackles in Matt Kaskey (6-6, 300) and Loyola Academy transfer Jack Palmer (6-2, 318). The Trevians also have welcomed in offensive lineman Marshall Budin, a movein from West High School in Columbus, Ohio. He’s a versatile player — he could play center — who checks in at 6-4, 273. Returning starters Nick “Scrap Iron” Balch (5-10, 245) and James Doan (5-11, 220) will be the guards, while senior Andrew Hauser (6-4, 230) will start at tight end. Meanwhile, one of NT’s top returners, Charlie Schoder, will start the season on

the sidelines. He sustained an ACL injury while playing lacrosse last spring. “He’s going through rehab,” said Doll. “He’ll be back, but we’re just not sure when.”

to North Barrington’s Sean Dolan. And at an IJGA Regional at Indian Lakes Resort, Lake Bluff’s Megan Sturonas placed second (84) in the Girls 14-15 Division.

Lake Forest Academy: He’s in demand. So far, LFA senior lineman Wesley Annan has received 25 scholarship offers. Schools on the list include Boston College, Maryland, Illinois and Syracuse. “That’s a pretty good problem to have,” said LFA coach Robin Bowkett. The 6-foot4, 275-pound two-way tackle, a Toronto, Canada native who will be a three-year starter for the Caxys this fall, is Harvard’s No. 1 recruit. And he’s the No. 1 lineman on the board for Penn. Annan, who made 53 tackles last fall, also has received interest from Stanford and Notre Dame. Bowkett says that junior defensive end Thomas Schaffer (6-7, 240) is another top recruit on his squad.

THE RUNDOWN CLUB TRACK Waukegan Invaders: Lake Forest’s Emma Millburn placed fifth in the 1500 meters (4:53.03) at the USATF Junior Olympic National Championships at Turner Stadium in Humble, Texas (July 21-27). Competing in the 15-16 age division, she ran a personal best 4:47 in the prelims. “She’s the real deal,” said Waukegan Invaders head coach Ken Almond. “It’s been a long process of development for her. She’s tough. She’s determined. She’s one of the hardest working athletes on our team.” Millburn also ran the 800 at nationals. She was clocked in 2:21, which was a twosecond improvement. “She can run faster,” Almond said. Millburn helped Deer Path Middle School win IESA state titles in cross country and track team last year. Millburn placed fourth in the IESA state cross country meet, while she took second in the 800 and third in the1600 at state track. She also anchored the winning 400 relay. Deer Path Middle School grad Emily Silge, who also competes for the Waukegan Invaders, qualified to the nationals in the 400 meters but did not compete. Meanwhile, in the17-18 age group, New Trier’s Tara Smart ran a PR in the 400 meters (57.72) but did not make the finals. Her previous best time was 59.95. ■

CHIP SHOTS GOLF Illinois Junior Golf Association: Competing in the 14-15 boys division, Winnetka’s Chip Savarie earned medalist honors (71) in an IJGA Sectional at Glencoe GC on July 30. Winnetka’s Peter Radler shot a 76 to share runner-up honors with Vernon Hills’ Justin Park. Meanwhile, at an IJGA Regional at Palatine Hills on July 29, Winnetka’s Connor Prassas claimed runner-up honors (78) in Boys 14-15 after losing a playoff

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

8/16 – 8/17/14

High Cal-iber addition Lake Forest High School baseball team welcomes highly touted Coughlin

Cal Coughlin

photography by joel lerner

■ by kevin reiterman sports@northsoreweekend.com Much already has been made of Cal Coughlin. Hang onto your hats. Much more is on the way. When it comes to Coughlin, you can believe the hype. It’s justified. “After attending high-level showcases and playing for a high-level travel team (Top Tier), everyone knows who he is,” said Sean Duncan of the Prep Baseball Report (PBR). “Everyone knows Cal Coughlin.” Ranked as the third best player in Illinois in the Class of 2016 by PBR, Coughlin is more than ready to take his game into “hyper” space. And he will do it while wearing a Lake Forest High School uniform. After attending Carmel Catholic in Mundelein for two years, the high-profile junior, a long-time Lake Forest resident, has transferred to LFHS for “academic reasons.” Can you say, “Winning the lotto?” “It’s one of those magical fits for us,” said Lake Forest head baseball coach Ray Del Fava, who guided the Scouts to 24 wins last spring. “The timing could not have been any better for us — and hopefully for him. “When you look at our lineup coming back (7 juniors played in the regional title game against Glenbrook South), we had a question mark at third base. And we needed a power arm on our pitching staff,” the LF coach added. “And that’s what he offers.” Coughlin, who has hit 92 mph on the radar gun, hasn’t exactly flown under the radar. He made his first college visit — to the University of Louisville — when he was … 14. In March, Coughlin went on a recruiting trip to LSU.

On Aug. 19-20, he will check out Vanderbilt and North Carolina. And the list goes on — and on. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Coughlin is a power pitcher who also owns a power stroke — from both sides of the plate. His high ceiling got a little higher at the PBR Future Games in Westfield, Ind. (July 31-Aug. 2). During the event’s Evaluation Day, Coughlin smoked three home runs — two as a left-handed hitter and one as a right-handed hitter. “He’s got legitimate power from both sides,” said Duncan. His switch-hitting ability helps to set him apart. “My goal is to be the best switch-hitter in the country (in his age group),” Coughlin said. “I don’t know many good ones; it’s a short list. It gives me something to work for. I’m trying to perfect it.” At the urging of his dad, Rick, a former minor league pitcher and ex-pitching coach at Loyola Academy, Coughlin became a switch-hitter at age 11. “Started from ground zero,” said Coughlin. “(Hitting left-handed) was a struggle at first. And it would have been easy to give up on it.” It has become second nature. “I set up a little differently. When I hit left-handed, my stance is a little wider. And from the right side, I stand up a little straighter,” said Coughlin. “I am not a power hitter one way and a slap hitter the other way.” He’s made it work by working tirelessly. When he was 7, his dad set up a hitting cage in the backyard. “It gets put to good use,” said Coughlin, noting that his dad pitches and plays catch with him nearly every day. In the winter, the Coughlins head north. They’ve got a barn in Waukegan set up for batting practice. “That’s our place,” said Coughlin. “On some nights, we can be up there as late as midnight. We stop when we stop.”

“I can’t settle. I can’t cut it in half,” Coughlin said. “Being a switch-hitter, I have to do double reps.” Thus, 200 swings equal 400 swings. Not one to bank on past results, Coughlin also is doing all he can to become a better pitcher. He recently attended a five-day camp with pitching guru Tom House in Los Angeles. “My mechanics (this summer) weren’t where I wanted them to be,” said Coughlin. House’s construction work figures to pay off. “He taught me a lot of stuff,” said Coughlin. “He’s an innovator. He’s more of a scientist than anything else. He breaks down your mechanics and your strengths. One of his drills had us throwing from our knees at 80 percent velocity. “He takes a look at your little muscles. No one told me that before. It’s already helping,” he added. Coughlin knows what he wants — in a college. The winner of the Coughlin sweepstakes will need to provide a warranty. He’s looking for a school which will allow him to be a two-way player. “They’re a little harder to find,” said Coughlin. The trust factor is important. “Most of the high-level schools will let him do both,” Duncan said. “He’s a great talent with true two-way ability.” This fall, Coughlin will play in 10 tournaments — five with Top Tier and five with the Cincinnati Reds Midwest Scout Team. “I never feel like I can relax,” said Coughlin. “I can’t get comfortable. There’s no time to waste. You can always get better.” That kind of commitment will fit well with Del Fava and the Scouts. “Ever since the 2014 season ended, we’ve been excited for the 2015 season,” said Del Fava. “You can just imagine how we feel now (with Coughlin). ■

46 | SUNDAY BREAKFAST SHE HELPS BRING MAGIC INTO LIVES OF DEVASTATED CHILDREN ■ by sam eichner

“I have never had a time at Camp Kesem that wasn’t personal, really, and didn’t have meaning for me,” Saccaro says. There’s a cohesiveness about her — the light blue pants and matching shirt, her electric blue eyes — that starts to crumble when she opens up. “It’s allowed me, it’s allowed my whole family to do something in her honor. And there’s a whole host of children like hers that need this support.” For the last four years, Saccaro has channeled her emotional loss into productive energy. Since she started, Camp Kesem has tripled in size — from 23 to 63 college campuses and from 1,200 to 4,000 campers.

Inside the sheltered courtyard at Avli in Winnetka, jazz drones on in the background; what’s left of the midmorning sun slips through a crevice; bulb lights rest on black wire crisscrossing the ceiling. But until Jane Saccaro arrives, the room is completely and utterly empty. As the chief executive officer of Camp Kesem, Saccaro has all the composure and charm one would expect of a leader. But Camp Kesem is not your typical organization; in fact, it’s the only one of its kind: a network of summer camps, fueled by college students across campuses nationwide, catering to some of the three million children who have a parent with cancer or who have lost a parent to cancer. “Our program is all about fun and connecting with others who can truly understand you,” says Saccaro, enjoying Diane’s Salad with grilled chicken and a club soda with lime. “For many children, it’s hard to have big breakthroughs when they are in a formal setting. Often, children really open up when they are engaged in play. There are moments when you see this courage — this sense of childhood — coming back.” Saccaro worked in the corporate world for years before deciding to move to the non-profit sector. She wanted to find an organization that was fulfilling an unaddressed need and that had significant opportunity to grow. During her search, her brother-in-law introduced her to Camp Kesem. “Imagine if this happened to me or my husband,” Saccaro remembers thinking. “Imagine the support we would want for our children.” Saccaro became CEO in December 2010. Seven weeks later, her sister Susan was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. Less than three months after that, Susan passed away, leaving behind three children under the age of four.

“I have never had a time at Camp Kesem that wasn’t personal, really, and didn’t have meaning for me.” “Sometimes people say, ‘Oh, everything happens for a reason,’” Saccaro begins. “There is no good reason why Susan died. But I do think there was a reason I was in this job. On the tough days, I remember what a gift it is to do the work I do.” As the courtyard fills up, the paltry light outside undergoes a subtle transmutation. Inside, it shines bright yellow. “Technically, Kesem means magic,” Saccaro tells me before we leave. “For us, and for me personally, it’s the act of really transforming lives and turning every child into their whole, authentic self.” ■
