PUTTING TOGETHER OUR JULY 2019 SW LAKE LIFESTYLE REMINDED ME YET AGAIN WHAT A SPLENDID SMORGASBORD OF LIFE EXPERIENCES IS SERVED UP HOT AND STEAMING, WITHOUT FAIL, IN BEAUTIFUL SW LAKE COUNTY. It was way too much fun being the photographer fly-on-the-wall guest at the equipment fitting session to kick off the newest season for the Lake Zurich Flames, a fine local youth football and cheerleading organization. Kids of all shapes, sizes, ages, and (yes) genders waited (im)patiently in line to try on pads, uniforms, and more. The obvious attention and focus on safety was apparent, and reassuring. Displayed prominently on the check-in table were a couple of helmets that exhaustive safety testing had proven not up to the task of another season and were, well, honorably discharged from duty. Adult coaches and older league players assisted the new kids in finding the right gear for a perfect and safe fit. Several sisters and younger siblings tagged along to help schlep the newly acquired treasures, and I did notice one young lady who wasn't just carrying someone else's gear but getting fitted for her own: Layne Nordstrom, the pro-

LAKE COUNTY SETS NEW FLOOD STAGE RECORD IN 2018 Lake County has been experiencing more frequent and stronger rainfall events and hit a new record in 2018 when it went above flood stage during six separate storm events, according to Craig Taylor, Lake County Board Supervisor. With current rainfall trends, Lake County could be on track to break 2018's flood stage exceedance in 2019. The increased rainfall not only impacts the Stormwater Management Commission but also other Lake County operations, including the Lake County Division of Transportation and Public Works which has to factor rainfall into designs for infrastructure improvements, and the Lake

ARTICLE MICHAEL BEIGHTOL | PHOTOGRAPHY STEPHEN NEILSON

SW Lake Lifestyle | July 2019


WHEN PAUL WHEATLAND MOVED BACK TO SW LAKE COUNTY A FEW YEARS AGO HE WAS READY TO PURSUE TWO OF HIS PASSIONS: MUSIC AND AN OUTDOOR LIFESTYLE. When he and his partner, Tammy Harmon, purchased Main Street Outfitter (MSO) in Wauconda, a bike shop & pub, he satisfied both pursuits. One thing he missed from his life in Southern California was bike rides along the beach. Now he’s taking long rides on Lake County bike trails with an electrifying boost from his Pedego bike, the premier brand of electric bikes. He’s also making quick converts of anybody looking to get out for a ride and wanting a power boost for pedaling uphill. “We rented Pedegos last year in California and rode 30 miles the first day,” says Mike Duffy of Mundelein. “We fell in love with the product, and when Paul became a Pedego dealer we immediately bought two. My wife, Barbara, and I take advantage of all the bike trails. We even ride to Lake Forest to see our grandkids.” Wheatland says he has a range of bikes available to suit all riders. “The Pedego tagline is ‘Hello Fun’,” he says. “There is one thing every test rider has in common—a huge smile.” For a free one-hour ride, call MSO (847.526.7433) to reserve a bike. In addition to bike rentals and repairs, kayak and paddle board rentals are available for Bangs Lake. MSO features a full bar, music and food. Learn more at MSOPub.com.

E-BIKE SPECS ELECTRIC POWERED Pedal Assist or Power on Demand BIKE STYLES From classic cruisers to monster trail bikes, all in great colors RANGE From 15 – 68 miles (360 to 816 Watt-Hours) OTHER BIKE TYPES MSO sells and services traditional bikes Tammy Harmon and Paul Wheatland.

(CON TI N U ED)

SHOP FARMER’S MARKETS Summer is perfect for taking advantage of farmers markets. Delicious seasonal farm-fresh non-GMO and organic foods are at your fingertips. One look at the vivid colors of just-picked produce shows just how nutritious they are.

Horseback riding is great for core stability and legs.

GROW YOUR FOOD Nothing beats the taste of fruits and vegetables from your very own garden. Growing your own food can be an enjoyable calorie-burning activity that saves money. FIRE UP THE GRILL Explore local groceries or butcher shops for deals on meats to complement fresh local produce. Grilling is a quick, delicious way to prepare organic lean cuts of beef, chicken, salmon or pork—and don’t forget, vegetables are great on the grill. COOL DOWN WITH A SMOOTHIE Blend your favorite summer fruits—and veggies like spinach and kale—with Greek yogurt and your milk-of-choice for a hydrating breakfast or snack. Fruit adds plenty of sweetness, so skip adding sugar. Make extra, and pour into ice pop molds for a fun, nutritious frozen dessert.

WHY MY SONS PLAY FOOTBALL

The Flames are dedicated to concussion prevention and awareness. All athletes participate in pre-season baseline concussion testing, a set of neuro-cognitive tests that measures visual and verbal memory, reaction time and processing speed on a computer, and can be used to guide treatment and safe return to play. “We have partnered with sports neurologist Dr. Erik Beltran  to speak at our town hall meetings and provide his professional insights into concussion prevention and management,” Zawilenski says. “At all home games, we provide certified athletic trainers with the ultimate authority to remove a player from competition in order to expedite injury treatment and avoid premature return to play.” “I am always certain to inform parents of student athletes that there is risk involved with playing youth football,” Beltran says. “When deciding to play parents and athletes have to weigh the {modest} risk versus potential benefits a child may receive from participation. It’s an individualized decision, and for me personally, I do not feel the risk outweighs the benefits and would let my children participate in youth football.” This year we will hold a community event at Knox Park to commemorate our 45th season. It will be to celebrate the past, present and future of our program. While it’s an opportunity for our current families to come together, it also will be a time for anyone interested to check us out. It’s an event that not only encompasses what a true hometown youth sports program is about, but who we want our children to grow up to be. Years after leaving the Flames many alumni have shared what youth football meant to them. Jack Sanborn, a player currently at the University of Wisconsin, says: “The Flames is where my passion for football first began. Football has given me opportunities that I never knew were possible and that journey all started with the Flames.” Regina Hope is a board member with the Lake Zurich Flames.

SW Lake Lifestyle | July 2019

+ 10 drops lemongrass essential oil + 8 drops lavender essential oil + 8 drops eucalyptus essential oil + 1 ½ ounces distilled water (minus 1 teaspoon to make room for the essential oils in the bottle) + ½ ounce 95% proof grain alcohol* WHAT YOU DO: In a 2-ounce spray bottle, add the grain alcohol (or Solubol) and drop in essential oils. Swirl to combine. Place the cap back on the bottle. Allow the oils to disperse in the alcohol for about 1 hour, then add distilled water, swirling again to combine.

K I D ’S WHAT YOU NEED: + 10 drops lemon essential oil + 10 drops lemongrass essential oil + 4 drops lavender essential oil + 1 ½ ounces distilled water (minus 1 teaspoon to make room for the essential oils in the bottle) + ½ ounce 95% proof grain alcohol* WHAT YOU DO: In a 2-ounce spray bottle, add the grain alcohol (or Solubol) and drop in essential oils. Swirl to combine. Place the cap back on the bottle. Allow the oils to disperse in the alcohol for about 1 hour, then add distilled water, swirling again to combine.

*The grain alcohol is used as a preservative as well as a carrier for the oils, but you can also use a product like this instead of grain alcohol at a 1:4 ratio (1 drop essential oil to 4 drops Solubol) if you’d rather and then just fill the rest with water to fill the 2-ounce spray bottle.

While there can be concern about citrus oils on the skin when exposed to sunlight, lemongrass isn’t a photosensitive oil, and if lemon essential oil is steam-distilled rather than cold-pressed (Oui Fresh essential oils are cold-pressed) it can be used on the skin. So just make sure to note which one your lemon oil is and only spray on clothes if you don’t have a skin-safe lemon oil (which is an application method a lot of people prefer anyway if they are more sensitive to oils).
