THE THRILL OF THE CHASE. THE LAP OF LUXURY. THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. As a true Aston Martin, motorsport has played its part in the development of our four door sports car. In May 2010, Aston Martin contested the annual Nürburgring 24 hours in a near-standard roadregistered Rapide. With only minor changes to satisfy racing safety requirements, this car – complete with standard Touchtronic 2 automatic transmission – ran fast and faultlessly throughout, achieving second in class and 34th overall from a starting grid of 200 purpose-built racing cars. As with all our racing activity, lessons learned in that gruelling event have directly influenced the development of future road car products, including the Rapide S.

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

No one is going to close the books on libraries

A

s the digital age marches on tweet by tweet, many soothsayers suggest that those institutions married to the printed word are doomed. Were that the case, we would be seeing a slew of big buildings brimming with books whose doors should be shuttered. Yet libraries, to paraphrase William Faulkner, will not merely endure; they will prevail. While some see technology as the potential death of brick-and-mortar libraries, North Shore librarians are not planning for funeral services to be held anytime soon, according to Kevin Beese, a new writer for The North Shore Weekend. Rather than running away from technological changes, most libraries are embracing them — and helping residents adapt to them. Consider the iPad/iPhone workshop at the Glenview Library, and kids who are learning how to use video and editing equipment at the Winnetka-Northfield Library. One of the few things you can’t do at a library, regardless of technology, is tailgate. After all, it’s not like there are fans who cheer for the works of Charles Dickens to be checked out more times in a day than those of Mark Twain. To find tailgaters, go to the parking lots of America’s sports stadiums. That’s where you’ll meet those fun-loving souls who emerge mainly in the fall to grill and

drink before football games. Luke Lincoln launched American Tailgater with his brother, Mike, 15 years ago. Gas-powered blenders that slice through ice, motorized coolers that allow riders to deliver beverages a long bomb away and more have been sold by the firm. Luke has seen college tailgate parties graced with china — $ and NFL ones featuring cheese whiz. Whether the atmosphere is highbrow or more like Raider Nation, Luke says, “No one has a bad time tailgating.” Read about his business in Sunday Breakfast. Love & Marriage columnist Joanna Brown — who spent a recent Sunday afternoon at rain-drenched chicago Soldier Field — knows about tailgating and other 773 404 2020 social events. She also knows that building a social calendar with one’s spouse can often be challenging when trying to fit in “his friends,” “her friends” and “our friends.” She found three recent weekends out9.13 BSM NSW Fall promo.indd 1 enjoyable but exhausting. A Northfield social worker explained to our columnist, “Your calendar shouldn’t be a stressor … don’t dread the weekends.” That’s a twist on what we say every issue. And we’ll say it again.

8 | news ■ by bill mclean The last kind of real estate broker you want to help sell your house is one who sticks a sign in your front yard and hopes for the best. To avoid making such a dire hire, a seller must ask the right questions to several brokers before choosing a competent, hard-working one. The interview between a seller and prospective broker is often a crucial one and the ideal way to gather pertinent information and insights before standing up, extending your right hand and saying, “You’re hired.” Nine busy folks in the real estate field along the North Shore were tossed each a few questions a seller should ask a broker in an interview. But we didn’t ask the professionals to answer them; we asked them to explain why each question is an important one for sellers to ask. “I love it when I get asked a tough, detailed question from a seller,” said Jean Wright of Jean Wright Real Estate in Winnetka. “That gives me the opportunity to provide a straight, detailed answer. Sure, the seller is the boss in the relationship, but what should end up happening is the formation of a seller-broker team.”

u Here are 10 questions sellers should

For the asking

Home sellers need answers to 10 questions from potential brokers

consider asking after sitting down with a broker:

u Why should I work with you to help me sell my house?

“It’s a good question because it gives brokers the opportunity to reveal their strengths and philosophies,” said broker Linda Antokal of Coldwell Banker-Deerfield. “It also gives brokers a chance to share their reputation and work style. It’s an important one to ask, since the plan should be to work together to sell a home.” Added Peter Moulton, @properties Vice President of Brokerage Services-North Shore: “Agents worth their salt give an answer to such a question from a performance perspective. If I’m a seller, the last thing I want to hear from an agent is, ‘Work with me because I love what I do.’ A seller should want to hear, ‘I sell at a 60 percent rate faster than the average market capture.’ ”

u What is the average list price to sale price in my area for comparable properties?

“As part of an overview of the current competitive environment, this type of data allows you to plan for the likelihood of what buyers will be willing to do,” said Roberta Miller, a broker/marketing specialist at Baird & Warner-Lake Forest. “Buyers have access to the same data as sellers do, so if you are familiar with how similar properties fare, you can be prepared.”

u What is the most effective means to create exposure for the sale of my property?

“It is important that emphasis is not put solely in one direction,” said @properties co-owner Thaddeus Wong. “The presentation of the home, both online and in print, starts with staging and photography. After the ideal imagery is captured, directing it to all syndicated sites online, as well as the most desirable local print media, is essential. [A seller] should ensure that a local broker has enhanced the home on the three major national sites. Lastly, [the question allows agents to discuss] their internal network. Often local agents will have a communication tool which will point out agents in their company with buyers interested in your home. This ‘market within a market’ can often capture a buyer immediately and at market price, with agreeable terms.”

u At what price would YOU buy my house?

“Since a local broker is likely representative of the most keen buyer, it’s a good question to ask,” said broker Michael Heagney of Koenig & Strey Real Living-Lake Forest. “Why would someone pay more for a home than what the broker would pay?”

u What are the three best things about my house and the three biggest deficiencies of my house?

“Those are important things to find out from a broker, but it’s also jumping the gun a bit,” said Ian Robinson, managing broker at Coldwell Banker-Northbrook. “You want to seek those answers when you’re closer to hiring a broker. At that point, a good agent will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.” Added Gary Jensen, managing broker at Coldwell Banker-Glenview: “An agent is going to start with the positives. Clearly, every house is going to have areas a seller needs to improve upon, and those should be addressed. A property is generally marketed based on three categories — location, condition and price. And you can’t do anything about the location. I tell agents, if they can’t agree on a listing price with a seller, it’s sometimes a good idea to get in a car with the seller and drive to two or three comparable houses that are on the market and look at them. Doing that is usually very helpful for the seller.”

u What is your forecast (regionally, for my specific area and for my specific property) for market conditions over the next six months? “In conjunction with other market information, knowing where our market seems to be headed can help [the seller manage] expectations,” Baird & Warner’s Miller said. “If interest rates are forecast to climb or decline, that may well influence buyers. [Assuring a seller that you’re] keeping up to date on market conditions is valuable.” Added Wright of Jean Wright Real Estate: “The seller has to know that the broker is knowledgeable about the market and its trends. At some point in the interview, the broker must detail for the seller what the broker has done for homeowners in the past.”

u What is the neighborhood/village in which you primarily do business?

“I’ve learned you can’t be an expert on every community,” said Prudential Rubloff Properties-Lake Forest Vice President Jean Anderson, who focuses on the Lake Forest/ Lake Bluff market. “A lot of my business for many years was vacant land and new construction, but I had to recreate myself when that market disappeared. It’s important [for a seller] to pick an agent familiar with the town in which [the seller] lives.” Added @properties’ Moulton: “Neighborhoods and villages have nuances. You want your broker to be aware of those because they’re helpful when determining the prices of homes.”

u What are your cumulative average days on market over the last 36 months? The key word in the question is “cumulative.” A simple

“days on market” figure could be misleading because homes have been taken off the market temporarily after, say, 30 days (perhaps it was overpriced), and then put back on the market. The return to the market resets the “days on market” count to “0,” making some buyers new to the scene think the listing is fresh (at a different price) — and therefore one to check out quickly. “It’s like rolling back the listing’s odometer,” wrote California-based broker John Fyten in a johnfyten.com article entitled Making sense of market indicators, Part 2. “[The] home gets to forget its past and start life anew.” A “cumulative days on the market” number is a running total of the days a house resides on the market. If it’s on the market for 30 days, gets taken off the market for a few weeks, and then returns to the market for another 30 days, it’s “cumulative days on the market” number is 60. “It’s a good indication of a broker’s skills at pricing homes attractively and accurately,” said Susan Maman, a senior broker consultant at @properties in Winnetka. “It’s also a reflection of trends in price range in a particular community. “But the main thing,” she added, “is accuracy. So much of what we do is helping the seller sell at the highest price in the least amount of time.”

u What is your average list price to sale price ratio over the last 36 months?

“It reflects the relationship between the list price and the average sale price in any given market,” said Jensen of Coldwell Banker-Glenview. “It allows the agents to show their accuracy of list prices relative to actual sale prices. It also reflects trends. Four to five years ago, when the housing market was soft, [the rate for many] was 88-89 percent; now it’s up to around 96-98 percent. But it’s important to remember that every market is different.” Added Robinson of Coldwell Banker-Northbrook: “A seller will be able to find out how good an agent is at pricing a home at the beginning, in conjunction with the average time the property is under contract.”

u What is the average market time for comparable properties in my area?

“It sets up a time frame so the seller can be confident in what to expect,” said Coldwell Banker’s Antokal. “I can give a seller an average market time. There are certain conditions, however, that are strong factors behind an average market time, with location and seller motivation being two of them. Bad curb appeal might be why a house stays on the market longer than comparable properties do. There are reasons why an average market time is higher in areas, and it’s up to a broker to share that knowledge with a seller.” ■

THe North shore weekend

Libraries’ embrace of technology is one for the books

■ by kevin beese

Leo Martin and his wife, Sue, make their way to the Lake Forest Library three or four times a month, looking for books that pique their interest. Rather than just judging a book by its cover, the Martins will take the extra step to hop on library computers to read book reviews posted on its website. “I read the reviews to find books that I really like,” Leo Martin said. “The computers are very good for finding the kinds of things that are most important to me in a book.” Martin has also gotten tutorial help from a librarian in using his tablet to download ebooks, opening up a wider world of information to him. Martin’s tablet and computer uses at the Lake Forest Library are just two examples of how libraries are more than just the keepers of books anymore. While ebooks and other material that can be downloaded have been labeled by some as the potential death of brick-and-mortar libraries, local librarians are not planning for funeral services to be held anytime in the near future. Instead of running from the technological advances being unveiled, local libraries are embracing them and finding ways to help residents use those resources. “There are a lot of benefits from technology,” said Rebecca Wolfe, director of the Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District. “You can work from home in your PJs. Technology has made getting things done so easy. “People can use the library now in the same way.” Chris Fascione presents “Bringing Literature to Life” at the Winnetka Library, where children The Winnetka Library offers 65 digital can also learn how to use video and editing equipment as libraries adopt modern technologies. magazines, 3M Cloud ebooks, investment tools and digital ways to learn a language. photography by joel lerner It also offers access to Consumer Reports’

reviews to individuals holding a library card. Glenview and other local libraries offer online tutors to help with homework or residents’ questions, making them 24-hour resource centers. The Glenview and Winnetka libraries offer genealogical databases for researching family history. The Lake Forest Library continues to add services patrons can download to their mobile device or from the comfort of their own home, library director Kaye Grabbe noted. She said people can turn to the library to borrow items instead of buying information. “There is a lot of stuff available on Amazon, but you do have to pay for it,” Grabbe said. “There is also a lot that is not there, things that we can find for you.” Wolfe noted that residents can find a book on Amazon, but only a librarian can help find a “historical novel with wit that is just right for the individual. You get more by working with a librarian.” Programming is another way local libraries are looking to serve their communities. From an iPad/iPhone workshop at the Glenview Library to kids learning how to use video and editing equipment at the Winnetka Library, local facilities are finding ways to provide residents with information and entertainment. The Lake Forest Library offered 350 programs last year, 300 of them for children. “We do story times for babies from birth to 23 months,” Grabbe said. “A 12-month-old is not story-time material, but it is an opportunity for the child to come to the library and for moms to interact and see what we have.” Libraries will continue to evolve the way the education system has continued to evolve, Wolfe said. “Schools are no longer limited by textbooks, and we are not limited by textbooks,” Wolfe said. “I would call that a win-win.” ■

Former Joffrey dancer brings moves to Glenview ■ by jenna schubert Ariel Cisneros knew at an early age that dance would become his lifelong passion. Growing up in Cuba — where dance is an important part of the culture — Cisneros was recruited by ballet teachers who recognized his potential talent when he was only eight years old. As a child, he trained at the Professional School of Arts in Havana. Now, years later and 1,300 miles away from his home, the former Joffrey Ballet dancer is starting a new chapter by teaching dance classes through the Glenview Park District.

“For me, the most rewarding part of teaching dance is seeing a person’s life made better — they feel stronger physically and mentally.” | Ariel Cisneros Currently, Cisneros teaches ballet classes for adults and children, as well as contemporary dance — which is a blend of modern, jazz, and salsa — for adults, all at the Glenview Park District’s Park Center. Each class is designed for dancers of all levels, from beginners to advanced. “I have a passion to work with people of all ages, nationalities, genders, and talent,” he says.

When he came to the Chicago area in the early 2000s, Cisneros already had an established dance career and had traveled the world for performances. After dancing for the Cleveland Ballet, the Kentucky Ballet Theater, and the San Jose Ballet, he briefly worked at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, while also beginning his career as a Joffrey Ballet company dancer. Several years later, he started teaching dance in the city, and eventually expanded to the northern suburbs. When he saw the facilities at Glenview’s Park Center, he knew it was the ideal place for him to teach more North Shore students. Although most of his Glenview classes serve adults, he is looking forward to expanding his children’s dance classes. “I like to teach kids, because they have a love of learning,” he says. All of his classes are unique in that he teaches modern and classical dance moves with a Cuban flair, and he can accommodate each student, based on his or her individual talents and abilities. According to Cisneros, the best part of his job is seeing his joy for dance spread to his students. “I’m sharing my love and passion for what I do with others,” he says. “For me, the most rewarding part of teaching dance is seeing a person’s life made better — they feel stronger physically and mentally.” For more information, or to register for Ariel Cisneros’ Glenview dance classes, contact the Glenview Park District’s Cultural Arts department at 224-521-2558, or visit glenviewparks.org. ■ Ariel Cisneros

Northbrook The Northbrook Nurses’ Club has ceased operations. The group, which provided a lending closet of medical equipment for area residents for 56 years, had an aging membership and no younger members joining its ranks, according to 17-year president Carol Wiemer. “It’s sad, but we knew it was coming,” Wiemer said of the group’s demise. “Glenview had a vibrant nursing club for years, and it went away. Ours was one of the few nursing clubs remaining.” Wiemer, a Northbrook resident for 49 years and a nurse for 50 years, noted that the group served a need in the community. She said the group lent medical equipment — from wheelchairs to canes —when a person’s insurance wouldn’t pick up the cost. “We never owned a building or site,” Wiemer noted. “We would always make arrangements with the person to meet us to get the equipment.” Wiemer is hopeful another group can use the organization’s remaining equipment, including 10 wheelchairs, for a similar operation. Interested individuals can contact Wiemer at (847) 272-3783.

The event drew 206 walkers and runners and raised $31,878 for the organization, according to Elise Moore, community outreach coordinator and a third-year teacher with the program. “I’d like to thank the community for their support,” Moore said. “The community’s support provides endless opportunities for individuals with special needs.” The theater program, now in its 14th season, meets once a week after school at Skokie School in Winnetka.

North Shore The area housing market continues to rebound as communities have seen home sales rise in double digits over the past year. Local home sales prices also increased, ranging from 2 to 5 percent, depending on the community. “Steady absorption of housing inventory in August as families rounded out the back-to-school season is a sign of buyers moving up, right-sizing or seeking the home right for their school and other geographic and community

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

The seller’s DIsClOsure With every listing comes a form called “The Seller’s Disclosure.” This is a form that every seller must fill out and should be included with documentation. It’s a form that tells potential buyers exactly what they’re in for with the house they’re buying. While the disclosure is a great tool, it shouldn’t be your only tool. Ask the seller if they’re willing to have a home inspection done and if any defects are disclosed, that they’ll be willing to make necessary repairs. The good news is a seller’s disclosure will let you know about any defects or potential defects in a house. The bad news is that if, after closing, something happens that wasn’t listed on the form, and the seller says they were unaware of it, there’s nothing that can be done. This is why a home inspection is a great thing to invest in—as well as asking the seller to include a home warranty. If “Contingent upon satisfactory home inspection,” it’s written into the contract offered, the buyer is provided with options. With a home warranty secured and in place at the time of closing, both the buyer and the seller are protected, with just a little extra forethought and planning going into the terms of closing. Talk with your Realtor®, they’ll explain all your options! For professional advice from an experienced Realtor, call Jean Wright at (847) 217-1906 or email at jwright@jeanwright.com

needs,” said Jim Votanek, president of the North Shore-Barrington Association of Realtors. Sales in Glenview-Golf were up 31.8 percent from last year, with 381 singlefamily homes sold through August. The median 2013 year-to-date sales price in Glenview and Golf was $500,000 in August, up 5 percent from the same time last year. Northbrook saw a smaller increase in home sales, with a 15.3 percent rise through August. There had been 301 single-family homes sold in the community through August. The median Northbrook year-to-date sales price in August was $499,000, up 2.3 percent from the same time last year.

PREVIEW Glenview Cy Fredrics Jewelers is celebrating its 55th anniversary this fall. The business, located at 2719 Pfingsten Road, has been in the same family for three generations. Jordan Lemick, who took over the business with his brother, Dustin, said that family involvement is a key to the business’s success. “Our secret is family,” Jordan Lemick said. “Our grandfather Cy started the business and our dad (Michael Lemick)

took over the business from him. My brother and I ushered in generational changes. “We have customers we take care of who are guys our age, guys who our grandfather took care of their grandfather. Every generation has their own jive.” Lemick said the jive he and his brother have brought to the business is more of a digital focus, with an increased Web presence and involvement with social media. Promotions at the business this fall are all geared toward patrons earning combinations for a safe containing $5,500 in jewelry. The promotions run to December. Glenview Feed the Dream, an organization that sets up nutrition programs for people in the mountains of Guatemala, will celebrate is 10th anniversary with an Oct. 5 event. Glenview resident Sandy Haggart, creator of the organization, was a translator on medical mission trips to Guatemala for years. Her connection to the country grew when her daughter adopted a child from Guatemala. When Haggart learned that the country had the fourth worst nutrition rate in the world, she knew she had to act. The Feed the Dream program focuses on children under age 5 and women

of reproduction age, targeting those demographics to have the biggest impact on health in the region. “We started with one village of 150 kids and have grown to helping 1,500 individuals a day in villages and 23 preschools,” Haggart said. “The impact has been tremendous. Nine villages have reached self-sustainability.” For information on the Oct. 5 event or ways to help the organization, go to www.feedthedream.org. Glenview Navy Boulevard will take on the honorary name “Nancy Firfer Boulevard” in October to recognize the former village president who oversaw the transition of the former Naval air station into The Glen Town Center. “It was a total surprise when I heard about (the naming of the street). I couldn’t think of anything to say,” Firfer said. “I thought those things did not happen until someone wasn’t around any more! It is quite an honor, I have to admit that.” The honorary dedication of Nancy Firfer Boulevard will take place at 2 p.m. Oct. 20 in Navy Park by Patriot Boulevard. Individuals interested in attending are asked to RSVP to lisag@ glenview.il.us or by calling (847) 9044370 by Oct. 7. Firfer said The Glen is the biggest

impact project she tackled during her 24-year public service career, which included eight years as village president. “(The Glen) gave us a place for people to be,” Firfer said. “We looked at is as an opportunity.” Northbrook The Northbrook Community Choir and The Northbrook Symphony Orchestra will join forces for two holiday performances this year. “Home for the Holidays” will be presented at 4 and 7:30 p.m. at the Divine Word Chapel of Techny Towers. “Following a successful concert in 2012, the Northbrook Park District is excited to be a part of the encore performance,” said Elsa Fischer, director of leisure services for the Park District, which manages the Northbrook Community Choir. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with the NSO to share beautiful music with the community in a spectacular setting, close to home.” The 2012 event sold out, triggering a second performance for this year. Singers interested in being part of the event need to register with the Park District for weekly rehearsals. Tickets for the event go on sale Tuesday (Oct. 1) at www.nbparks. org, the Park District Leisure Center Box Office and by telephone at (847) 291-2367.

Back in the mid-1970s, Luke Lincoln and his brother, Mike, attended numerous Chicago Bears and Northwestern University football games. “They were both horrible,” recalls Luke, a youngster at the time. “Walter (Payton) left, Walter right, Walter up the middle — punt.” Yet both Luke and his older brother were struck by what happened outside the stadiums — specifically, in the parking lots. “The tailgating was the highlight of the day,” Luke says. “To see all these people who were so passionate — even though the product inside wasn’t good — was amazing.” The brothers talked for years about starting a company targeting tailgaters — those fans eating and drinking around their parked cars before and after games. Finally — well after the Bears had won a Super Bowl and two years after the once-woeful Wildcats had appeared in a Rose Bowl — they launched American Tailgater (www. americantailgater.com). Football-shaped charcoal grills, gas-powered blenders, motorized coolers and more have been scooped up by tailgating aficionados since the 1998 opening. After selling about 50 different products at the beginning, American Tailgater offers more than 1,000 today. Though to some autumn is a quiet time to enjoy the changing color of leaves, for Luke (who now owns the firm himself after buying Mike’s share this year) it’s the busiest time of the year. NFL and NCAA football gear make up more than half of the Lake Bluff company’s revenues. Lincoln can often be found among tailgaters around the country, and he says many good ideas have come from the entrepreneurs in the parking lot. He has his favorite spots. “The Grove at Ole Miss is a classic tailgate spot. They bring their china out there, and people are cooking all day” Lincoln says. “The University of Washington and the University of Tennessee are great because they have floating tailgating on boats. We have grills designed for boats and beverage coolers with suction cups for the boater.” In the NFL, Lincoln says Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium is the top venue — there’s a ton of parking because of the Royals’ baseball stadium next door. The most stunning visit occurred when he stopped by the parking lots in San Francisco and Oakland around the same time. “Talk about a tale of two fan bases,” Lincoln says. “San Francisco had king crab, wine and cheese and silver in the parking lot. And then you had Raider Nation — basically beer and cheese whiz. Most looked like they were looking

Welcome to the land of Lincoln

for a brawl.” The Lake Forest Country Day School graduate says magnetic beverage coolers — which range from $19.95 to $28.80 for a four-pack — are his best sellers (“you can slap them on the side of a car — just don’t drive home with them there”). Another hot item is the telescoping flagpole and stand, which extends up to 20 feet and allows tailgaters to fly two flags to alert partygoers where they are. “Our challenge is to keep finding new products,” Lincoln says. “We have to find unique and innovative tailgate gear.”

“The tailgating was the highlight of the day. To see all these people who were so passionate — even though the product inside wasn’t good — was amazing.” | Luke Lincoln Lincoln would like to further tap the corporate market. American Tailgater has struck deals with companies such as Dodge, where car buyers receive the Ultimate Tailgater Package (worth about $2,000) as part of their vehicle purchase. “Tailgating is a great value for Luke Lincoln companies because of all the positive emotions associated with it,” says the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management graduate. Beyond football, the tailgating market — estimated at $20 billion in annual sales — drops off significantly. Lincoln sells NASCAR-related products and a hockey puck flask, but interest is limited. He flew to London to consider the European soccer market, “but they all tailgate in the pubs.”

He’s made inroads on the music side, selling Jimmy Buffet-related tailgate items to Parrot Heads and others, and is wondering how to appeal to the Ravinia Festival crowd locally. T hough A mer ican Tailgater printed 60,000 catalogues in its debut year — which Lincoln and others passed out at stadiums in a “guerilla marketing” campaign — today the focus is online. In October, a revamped Web site will be launched with a “Deal of the Day,” news updates and more. The company has received favorable mentions in The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, among other publications, helping to get the word out about its products. For Sunday breakfast, Lincoln, his wife Amy and sons Lukie (4) and Fritz (2) enjoyed the new R ag i n’ Kitchen at Forest Park Beach this summer. Fall is another story. “With football season here, the real Sunday breakfast is probably the huevos rancheros we like to illustration by barry blitt fire up when we get out to Soldier Field early for the noon starts,” he notes. And with the Bears off to a solid start, tailgating is not the only reason to go to Soldier Field these days. Still, the notion of partying with friends outside of a stadium remains appealing. Says Lincoln, “No one has a bad time tailgating.” ■

Knwowledge Is The dIfference

Navigating a social calendar: ‘Don’t dread the weekends’

The last few weekends have been unusually social, with activities and events across the spectrum. It’s made my head spin — but in a wonderful way. There was the cold and rainy Sunday afternoon in the south end zone of Soldier Field, breaking the ice with two women whose reputations preceded them. Our husbands are long-time friends with a shared passion (or disgust, some years) for Bears football, though the wives are only invited to join them once in a blue moon. We are professionals, mothers, wives and fans whose lives have us running in circles that rarely overlap. But we laughed a lot together that day and I look forward to doing it again next season. Then there was the sunny Saturday evening on my friend’s deck. This social circle was established when our children were assigned to the same daycare classroom, and the four moms widened the circle of friends during birthday parties and one darn fun night of margaritas; we only recently decided to invite the husbands into the mix. Time will tell if the next event will be another family dinner or Girls’ Night Out; I see both in my future, but margaritas will likely come first. A third weekend found my family picking apples on the Wisconsin state line with a family we met at a Super Bowl party many years ago, when we were just two young couples with nothing but time on our hands: no kids to raise, no lawns to mow. Now that we find ourselves toting two red wagons through the orchard, we’re having just as much fun together. So there it is: three weekends filled by “his friends,” “her friends,” and “our friends.” Enjoyable, but exhausting. I said as much to Northfield Licensed

Clinical Social Worker Lynn Zakeri, who told me, “For some people, it’s exhausting; for others, it’s invigorating. It all depends on where you get your energy – whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert.” The challenge is to know your boundaries, as well as your spouse’s boundaries, and build a social calendar accordingly. “I think we have a problem with living in the moment in our generation,” she added. “We focus so much on making plans that when we make time for ourselves, it feels selfish. But when you come back from whatever you do with your ‘Me Time,’ it rarely feels bad.” Zakeri called attention to our parents’ generation and its defined marriage roles. Rarely did her father set foot in the grocery store, whereas now many couples run household errands together. With modern couples acting more like best friends, it’s important that each partner make time to meet their individual needs, she explained. For some people, a busy social calendar is a great thing. It’s a sign that you are part of a community and that others enjoy your company. Other people crave family time and long for quiet weekends, free of scheduled outings. As for my month as a social butterfly, Zakeri patted me on the back. “I know it feels like a lot, but you’re in a good place if you’re doing all that because it certainly isn’t standard,” Zakeri assured me. “The payoff is worth it when you have things to celebrate, strong friendships, and you and your spouse are doing things together. “Your calendar shouldn’t be a stressor. Know your boundaries, know your spouse’s boundaries, and give them a pass when they need it. Maybe someone in your group won’t bring their husband next time: you accept their excuse and move on. Don’t dread the weekends.” Love & Marriage columnist Joanna Brown can be reached at Joanna@northshoreweekend.com. ■

Captivating

Carroll continues to enthrall home crowd as Glenbrook South moves to 4-0 Glenbrook South senior Cody Carroll looks for yardage after making a catch against Niles North on Sept. 20.

photography by joel lerner

■ by kevin reiterman

sports@northshoreweekend.com He’s all about catching things. In the spring, he chased down fly balls in center field and batted leadoff for the Glenbrook South High School baseball team. In the fall, Cody Carroll is hauling in passes at an astonishing pace. And, in the opening quarter of GBS’s 46-7 win over visiting Niles North on Sept. 20, the senior wideout played a little game of “Catch me if you can.” His spectacular catch and run (44-yard touchdown), according to GBS coach Mike Noll, was quintessential Cody Carroll. “That catch … was typical,” said the veteran coach, who has been at this for 26 years at two schools (16 with McHenry, 10 with GBS) and accumulated 224 career wins — and counting. “He’s very elusive when he catches the ball in space. He’s hard to bring down. “Cody is as good of a receiver as I’ve ever coached,” Noll added. “We’re trying to get him the ball as much as possible.” Niles North’s defensive backfield was tilted just enough to allow Carroll to race 44 yards on a slant pass from towering junior quarterback Fitz Stadler. You needed a fully integrated GPS system to follow his route into the end zone. “I made a hard fake to the outside, caught the ball, saw a crease, made a cut, broke some tackles, kept driving my feet and made it into the end zone,” said Carroll. He confessed that he might’ve left out a detail or two. “It all,” he added, “happened so fast.” But Carroll’s night wasn’t perfect. We learned on Friday night that the 6-foot-3, 198-pound Carroll, a super athlete, is … human. He had a couple of drops, including a right-there toss from Stadler in the right

corner of the end zone just before halftime. “Improvement definitely needs to be made there,” said the humble wide receiver. The highly energetic and bespectacled Noll did a double take. “He hadn’t dropped a pass all year,” said the coach. To his credit, it took Carroll less than 30 seconds to come up with a bounce-back play. Noll went right back to his prized receiver and watched him catch a 12-yard hitch pass in the right flat of the end zone to put the Titans up 23-7. We also learned on Friday night that the roster program is wrong, out of date. Stadler is listed as 6-foot-6. “I’m actually 6-8,” Stadler said matter-of-factly. There’s no denying Stadler’s stats. The brother of Sully and Walker Stadler — two guys who tossed pitches for Indiana University’s baseball team last spring — he has been whistling the ball all over the field for GBS (4-0) this fall. He’s completed 33 of 55 passes for 671 yards and 10 touchdowns. “He’s developed,” said Noll. “We believe in him.” This kid simply can chuck it. A Titans pitcher in the spring, he’s already hitting close to 90 miles per hour — 86, to be exact — on the radar gun. But, as far as performing under the radar, there’s no chance of that with Kid Stadler and his amazing go-to sidekick, Carroll. In four games, these two have connected on 19 passes for 483 yards and seven TDs. And, against the Vikings, they converted on three third-down calls. “Cody definitely is the man,” said Stadler, who played only in blowouts and JV games last fall. “You saw him. On that (44-yard) catch and run, he was just shaking off defenders.” Notable: GBS’s stout offensive line — seniors Brennan Cascarano (left tackle), James Roberts (left guard), Peter Balabanos (right guard) and Aaron Rowe (tight end) and juniors Aiden Sully (center) and Shouki Shunnarah (left

tackle) — kept Stadler clean (no sacks, no hurries) all night. And, this blocking crew also paved the way for 251 rushing yards. Senior tailback Michael Gentile was electric, gaining 146 of them on only seven carries. He displayed sprinter’s speed on a 74-yard TD dash in the third quarter. And he added another sparkler on the opening play of the fourth quarter: a 39-yard TD run. “This line puts in the work,” said Stadler. “Those guys do so much for us. They make us look good.” Brett Laurie, who scored four touchdowns (3 rushing, 1 receiving) in GBS’s 48-0 win over Deerfield in Week Three, added a pair of TD runs (9 and 1 yards) against Nile North. He also caught two passes for 31 yards. On the defensive side, Cascarano finished with a forced fumble and six total tackles, including a sack and two other tackles for loss. Quinn Conaghan and Jacob Revello also had six tackles apiece. Robert Milota had two tackles for loss, while Patrick Fogerity and Shunnarah recorded quarterback sacks. Tommy O’Hara had four tackles and a forced fumble. Welcome addition: Junior Carlos Benitez, a move-in from Puerto Rico, saw his first action and didn’t disappoint. He made three stops and recovered a fumble in the second half. Double duty: Omar Duran had himself a day. On Friday afternoon, he was a starting defender — and played the whole game — for the GBS varsity soccer team, which defeated Prospect 2-1. On Friday night, he was the football team’s kicker. The senior showed off his strong leg by hitting all six PATs. And two of his kickoffs went for touchbacks. Hot ticket: The undefeated Titans, who have scored 191 points in four games, will take on perennial power Maine South (2-2) in Park Ridge on Sept. 27 (7:30 p.m.). The Hawks’ two losses came against a couple of super teams: Montini and Wheaton Warrenville South. ■

THe North shore weekend

09/28 – 09/29/13

Option-al illusion Ethridge’s colorful play at quarterback standing out for game Warriors ■ by bill mclean

sports@northshoreweekend.com Clad in white and red, Deerfield High School senior quarterback Ben Ethridge saw red in Northfield last weekend. An inadvertent whistle had wiped out Ethridge’s 62-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter against host New Trier on Sept. 20. NT was up 14-0 at the time. The refs huddled for a fairly lengthy discussion and placed the ball on the Trevians’ 35-yard line, reducing Ethridge’s run to a 27-yard gain. “I was angry,” the 6-foot, 190-pound option signal caller admitted. But it was a controlled rage, as Deerfield ran the ball on three straight plays — all by the Warriors’ QB. Ethridge rushed for 13 and 17 yards before scoring on a five-yard TD run. Justice, on a football field. But the verdict ultimately went NT’s way. The Trevians (2-2) tallied 27 unanswered points in the second half to secure a closer-than-it-looks 44-21 victory. Deerfield (1-3) led 21-17 at 8:40 of the third quarter and appeared to be in total control behind Ethridge (25 carries, 160 yards, three TDs). “He knows this offense [triple option] so well,” Deerfield football coach Steve Winiecki said. “[NT’s Trevians] sometimes had no idea when he had the ball. He made fantastic reads and so many great decisions tonight. “This is our fourth year running this offense, and Ben is probably the best at making the right reads.” New Trier’s triple threat, senior quarterback Matt McCaffrey, produced a rare feat for the second weekend in a row, scoring at least once in three different ways. The backup to injured senior QB Frank Nicholas (shoulder), McCaffrey passed for two TDs, ran for two more and came down with a 10-yard TD reception. He finished with 261 all-purpose yards, 232 via the air on 14-of-21 passing. Ethridge’s other TD runs covered six and five yards. “We played well as a team tonight,” Ethridge said. “Things didn’t go our way in the second half. But we’re ready to get back to work and get up for our next game.” New Trier owned a 23-21 advantage when its defense came up big on consecutive plays early in the fourth quarter. Trevians senior defensive lineman Michael Sernus stopped Ethridge for a two-yard loss at NT’s 34-yard line. NT junior linebacker Will Francke then dropped Ethridge for a four-yard loss, forcing a punt attempt. Deerfield went for a fake punt, only to be foiled again by Francke, who tackled punter Dominic DiBenedetto five yards short of a first down. “He’s tough,” Francke said of Ethridge. “Deerfield is a very physical team. Deerfield fought hard the entire game.” NT coach Dan Starkey also was impressed, especially with Deerfield’s abracadabraish offense.

Deerfield High School’s quarterback Ben Ethridge pitches the ball to Kyle Adkins during Week Three action against Glenbrook South. On Sept. 20 at New Trier, Ethridge had 160 rushing yards.

photography by george pfoertner “It’s a great scheme, and Deerfield is well-coached,” he said. “Defending an option is assignment football. Deerfield kept us off balance, but we made adjustments in the second half. “We did a better job of getting to the right spots.” Deerfield visits Highland Park (3-1) for a Central Suburban League North opener Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. HP (3-1) beat visiting Waukegan 28-21 on Sept. 20. Notable: Ethridge took over as the Warriors’ starting QB in Week 5 last fall. … Warriors senior running back Sam Modro paced the team in rushing (10 carries, 72 yards) and finished with two receptions for 14 yards against New Trier. … Deerfield junior wideout Brad Bickmore caught a 17-yard pass from Ethridge. … Senior lineman Colton Emmerich sacked McCaffrey 12 yards behind the line of scrimmage, and junior defensive back/running back Alex Williams tackled a scrambling McCaffrey for a 14-yard loss while the QB was trying to control the snap on the fourth play of the game. Williams also rushed three times for 42 yards. … Deerfield outgained New Trier 349-332 in total yardage. … NT scored its last two TDs following a Deerfield fumble on a kickoff and on Trevians senior Ian Sinclair’s 16-yard interception return. “I’m proud of the way the kids played … really, really proud,” Winiecki said. “But we have to play better, be more consistent. I have no complaints about our kids’ efforts.” ■

THe North shore weekend

Burnside continues to be a major playmaker for Spartans’ football team ■ by t.j. brown

sports@northshoreweekend.com

Kurt Roemer (No. 10), seen her controlling the ball against Highland Park earlier this fall, is putting together a stellar senior season for the Glenbrook South soccer team.

He’s got ‘crazy skills’ Roemer’s style a play a perfect fit for Glenbrook South’s soccer team ■ by bob gosman

sports@northshoreweekend.com At 5-foot-5 inches and 125 pounds, Glenbrook South High School senior midfielder Kurt Roemer Jr. gives up inches and pounds to nearly every player he faces. However, this is nothing compared to what Roemer dealt with as a sophomore on varsity when he stood 5-foot-2 and weighed 105 pounds. “It was a little intimidating but we had a great group of seniors that made me feel comfortable and confident in the things I was capable of,” Roemer said. One of those seniors was Branden McGarrity, now a sophomore on the Carleton College soccer team in Northfield, Minn. “I remember being surprised right away when I saw him, but he proved that he could hold his own,” McGarrity said. “He was a super shifty player and had crazy skills with the ball. It would look like he was running around but the ball would always follow him.” McGarrity, who as a senior set the Glenbrook South’s singleseason record for goals, was also struck with Roemer’s positive attitude and passion for the game. “Kurt was always running around smiling and making everyone else’s day better,” he said. Three years later, Roemer is still running around the soccer field and still smiling — and with good reason. Roemer, a captain for the Titans, has played a central role in their 4-1-3 record after the first eight matches. “He scored our first goal of the season and (continued to) play well from there,” Titans coach Paul Agombar said. “His biggest strength is his accuracy with the ball and he’s also an option to receive a pass. He’s (perfect) for the style we want to play.” Roemer has never spent too much time thinking about his size. Instead, he focuses on ways to play to his strengths and put constant pressure on the opposition. “I try to be quick physically but a big part of it is being quick mentally,” he said. “If I can play simple and get the ball of my

foot quickly, I don’t have to deal with size.” Added Agombar: “Soccer is more about being very athletic and playing at a high tempo. If you can control the ball with the first touch, pass with your second touch and have technical ability, it doesn’t matter if you’re one of the smallest players on the field.” It’s surprising now given how much Roemer loves the game, but he stopped playing soccer for three years. He returned to the game at age 11 by chance. He was car-pooling home from a basketball practice, when one of his hoops teammates was dropped off at a soccer practice. “I ended up going along and practicing with the team,” Roemer said. “I remember running around and enjoying it and the coach saw something in me and asked if I wanted to join the team.” Soon, Roemer was playing club soccer and devoting much of his free time to the game. Even one of his outside interests – leadership – helps him on the soccer field. Roemer, a top student, spent a week prior to his junior year at a ranch in Wyoming as a member of the J. Kyle Braid Leadership Foundation. The Foundation aims to teach high-achieving teens how to become effective and successful leaders in their schools and community. “Sometimes I was not vocal enough and that unique experience helped me to come out of my shell,” Roemer said. This year, his assertiveness and decisiveness has been on display. Already he has scored four goals, one more than his total a season ago. Three of those tallies came from outside the box. “I think he’s taking more chances and that comes from the confidence of being a senior captain,” Agombar said. “His scoring has improved and that’s had a really positive (impact) for the way we want to play.” Notable: The Titans opened conference play with a dramatic 3-2 win over host Maine South on Sept. 17. Luke Pilliod opened the scoring with a header in the first half. Then after a long goal by Roemer, Peter Campbell came up with the game-winner on a bicycle kick in the final minute of the game. ■

The box-office attendants at the Northbrook Court Movie Theater. The maître d’ at Hole in the Wall. The kitchen staff at Lou Malnati’s. They’re all typically crazy busy on weekends. But no one in Northbrook was busier than Glenbrook North High School’s David Burnside on Sept. 20. The junior lived and thrived on the field — on offense, on defense, on special teams — in the Spartans’ 31-23 loss at Niles West (4-0). Burnside on the sideline? Never. “He doesn’t come off the field,” GBN coach Bob Pieper said of his returning two-way. “He made a lot of plays tonight.” The wideout caught six passes for 51 yards, and rushed once for 7 yards. As a defensive back, he compiled eight solo tackles and two assists — plus two interceptions that helped keep the Spartans in the game against an explosive Niles West offense. Oh, and he returned one kick 27 yards. The biggest plays came late in the game in the defensive secondary. The first one came with 1:30 left in the third, when Burnside intercepted a Tom Galanopolous pass at the Niles West 35 and ran it back to the 12, setting up a GBN touchdown run by quarterback A.J. Spitz (5 yards). “We had momentum for about 10 seconds and then they ran back that kickoff,” said Pieper, referring to a 93-yard return by Quinn Spillman which put the Indians up by eight points. Then, with less than 2:30 left in the game and Niles West driving with an eight-point lead, Burnside picked off a quick slant pass just in front of the goal line, giving the Spartans one last chance to tie the game. Notable: Spitz brushed off a fumble on his first play from scrimmage to rush for 92 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries. He completed 12-of-25 passes for 106 yards The Spartans (1-3) relied on forcing turnovers, none as big as Alexandro Garcia’s sack of Tom Galanopolous which forced a fumble that Matt Alexander picked up and returned 52 yards for a game-tying touchdown. Alexander, Garcia and Adam Jurczuk (two tackles, one sack) had their hands full with Galanopolous, who ran the read option well, rushing for 166 yards on 24 carries and completing 20-of-31 passes for 289 yards and a touchdown. The other big turnover came in the first half when defensive back Bobby Porcaro potentially saved a touchdown by stripping the ball from Quran Spillman, who caught a deep pass from Galanopolous. Senior Michael Keene (five solos, two assists) fell on the ball, setting up a 98-yard drive that briefly gave GBN the lead. Other defensive leaders included junior linebacker Matt Tedeschi (five tackles, three assists, one sack), senior linebacker Brady Nagel (3 tackles, one assist) and senior defensive back Nick Cox (nine tackles, two assists). North faces visiting Maine East (2-2) Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. ■

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

Tennis aces rally to trump melanoma

Glenbrook South netters put rackets down, raise funds for Skin of Steel campaign ■ by angelika labno

sports@northshoreweekend.com Martina Dragoytchev, a junior doubles player on Glenbrook South High School’s tennis team, spends a lot of time in the sun during the season: two hours for a practice, three for a match and up to eight hours for an invite. There are no shaded courts, and even on a cloudy day, the sun’s dangerous rays power through. She knows better than to avoid slathering on SPF 50 sunscreen, as she is a prime candidate for her age group’s most common cancer: skin cancer. “I’ve seen what skin cancer can do to people, so it’s my goal to keep myself as healthy as I possibly can,” said Dragoytchev. Along with fellow team members, she has pledged to be “sun safe” while teaming up with a local organization called Skin of Steel. This year, however, the girls are making a bigger effort to spread the word about melanoma and raise funds for the first melanoma tissue bank in Chicago. The partnership with Skin of Steel began five years ago when GBS coach Katie Nicolotti came across the newly launched organization. The connection was obvious, as the girls are in the sun all day, and the founder, Glenview native Susan Steel, had an incredibly inspirational story to tell. Eight years ago, Steel was diagnosed with the cancer. At one point, doctors told her she had up to a

year to live. Defying the odds, she still stands today with more fervency about the prevention of skin cancer and fundraising for a tissue bank. “The girls saw that this is something that could be affecting their peers, so they found the cause to be incredibly worthwhile,” said Nicolotti. The team surpassed its goal of raising $1,500 in a 3K walk/5K run organized by the Long Grove Rotary Club on Sept. 7. Each netter ran, and several of them placed at the event. Combined with money raised at school, the current total is more than $2,600, yet the fundraising won’t stop there. The girls will host a school bake sale, sell tank tops and begin selling tickets to a Nov. 10 Skin of Steel event. Outside of the classroom, the next big push is on local businesses. Sophie Hensley, a freshman on the varsity team, volunteered to write a letter that asks the businesses to match any funds raised or make a separate donation to the cause. All of the varsity players will pair off and take the letters to five businesses each in the upcoming weeks.   “The girls have been going above and beyond, and I’ve been really impressed and proud of them,” Nicolotti said. “They’ve really taken a stronger leadership with this position.” The coach joked that the Titans’ schedule this fall has gotten in the way of the awareness campaign. After finishing fourth in state last year, the strongest finish in the program’s history, the team is aiming for a top-three trophy at this year’s state meet. ■

For Stephanie and Casey a visit to Speckled Hen is a feather in their cap

We don’t get a lot of time away because of the retail store. Sometimes a weekend is a walk with our dog in Middlefork Preserve so we can be best friends instead of business partners. But we recently took a nice weekend in Madison. We went to the Speckled Hen Inn, a bed and breakfast with five rooms. My husband said we were going to our cottage without running water for my 30th birthday. So when we got on the road to the Speckled Hen, I thought he was lost — the cottage is another four hours away. Instead, it was a great surprise. The setting was so beautiful. It was peaceful, cozy, welcoming and relaxing. We had a lot of privacy, but we could also talk with other guests.

“Breakfast was so delicious ... they brought it to our room. They picked the potatoes out of the garden that morning and the raspberries from the raspberry bush.”

We made a journey around the area. We walked the shops around downtown Madison. We found spots that served gluten-free beer. I (Stephanie) have a lot of food allergies, and the Speckled Hen is so careful with its food preparation. Breakfast was so delicious. They went the extra mile — they brought it to our room. They picked the potatoes out of the garden that morning and the raspberries from the raspberry bush. Even the drive home was great. We were listening to Kathy and Judy on WGN. It was their first show back. It was so nice. Stephanie and Casey Helander, as told to David Sweet ■
