Station Middle School incident brings local attention to smartphone issue among students Social media tips

BARRINGTON – A sexting case at Barrington Middle School’s Station Campus publicly surfaced Monday evening when Station Principal Craig Winkelman sent an email to the parents of all Station students. Barrington area adolescent specialist Dr. Cheryl Borst now shares her opinion while school officials continue to serve students with their respective consequences. Borst, a 24-year psychologist on staff at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital and practice owner at The Barrington Center, said “pornography is evolving” through social media. “There’s a lack of boundaries,” Borst said. “Teens have an illusion of being invulnerable to consequences and are often peer pressured into these sexting situations.” When working with teens, Borst said she tries to deliver the message that cellphone and Internet images are being “sent out to the whole wide world once a user hits the send button.” Borst said teens don’t always have impulse control and don’t realize that minors can be criminally charged under state law when they are engaged in sexting in any sort of way. The recent case involving a “small circle of Station students” is now under full investigation by the Barrington Police Department.

Barrington police are investigating a sexting case involving a “small circle of students” at Station Middle School. Barrington 220 Spokesman Jeff Arnett said sexually inappropriate images taken outside of school were brought to administrators’ attention the week of April 1. Arnett said all images were retrieved and deleted from the students’ cellphone devices with the help of Barrington police. Arnett was unable to disclose the identities and grade levels of students involved since they are minors and the case is under criminal investigation. Under the district’s middle school policy, students are allowed to bring their cellphones to school to use between classes. Cellphones cannot be used during class time. Arnett said most cellphone use occurs in hall-


ways and before or after the school day. This is not the first time for sexting to surface within Barrington schools, Arnett said, but it is the first case to involve “more than one or two students.” Borst said that in her practice, she has seen enough teen sexting incidents to say that one in five teens has engaged in some sort of sexting. “Teens are desensitized with social media,” Borst said. “They say they are ‘hooking up’ by sexting because it’s fun and safe as opposed to ‘the real thing.’” Borst said sexting is a way for teens to experiment with sex in a different way, viewing the interaction as a “distant situation” or “something they would never actu-

ally do or say in person.” Winkelman told parents “the real tragedy is that some students were victimized in this incident.” Some students merely received the images without forwarding the images onto other peers and each consequence has been or will be determined based on the student’s degree of involvement, Arnett said. “At the very least, a student will receive counseling both in and outside of the school,” Arnett said. “More serious offenses could entail suspension and the most serious offense could be an expulsion or a referral for the police to take their own disciplinary action.”

• Talk with your student and set guidelines on appropriate use of their phones – no inappropriate texts or embarrassing photos or videos. • Tell your teen that sexually explicit material of any kind is not allowed. Have your child friend you in their social media circle – on Facebook, Instagram, KIK, etc. so that you can monitor for questionable activity. • Monitor your child’s phone usage. Request passcode access. • Establish real consequences when parental rules are broken and enforce them. A parent can cancel or suspend access to cellphone service. • Teens should always think about the consequences of taking, sending or forwarding a sexual picture of someone underage, even if the photo is of themselves. • If a person forwards a sexual image of someone underage, that person is just as responsible for this image as the original sender. A distributor could face child pornography charges, go to jail or be required to register as a sex offender. • Teens must report any nude photos they receive on a technology device to a trusted adult such as a parent or school counselor. They should not delete the message but instead involve parents or guardians, teachers and school counselors immediately.

Psychologist: Sexting case ‘a wake-up call’

3 • Thursday, April 17, 2014



Village trustees plan for spring weather Barrington Fire Department’s response times also discussed at board meeting By TARAH THORNE BARRINGTON – Readying for spring weather, Barrington village officials discussed water management and emergency response at the Village Board meeting Monday evening. Public Works Director Mark Werksman was granted board permission to contract with Baxter & Woodman, Inc. to install several rain water flow meters at Summit and Russell Streets. The meters will collect data and help officials develop ways to meet phosphorus limits set by the village’s wastewater treatment facility. The proposal for this project is set not to exceed $22,990. Werksman said the goal of this project is to prevent all sources of storm water from entering the village’s sanitary sewer system. “Once a storm water source is identified, it will be fixed by public works,” Werksman said. “This will reduce potential cost of wastewater treatment and reduce the overall risk of residents having water in their basements.” Most conversation fell

• SEXTING Continued from page 3 Arnett said some students have received word of their consequence while consequences for other students are pending with the police investigation. The school board is able to take action on sexting done off school property once those images make their way into the educational environment, disrupting the school day, Arnett said. Borst said sexting can lead to shameful feelings and even suicide. “I think this was a total wake-up call for Barrington Middle School,” Borst said. “Parents are shocked that kids could be criminally charged.” Borst stresses to her teen clients that they should de-

upon Barrington Fire Department’s March response times and a problematic fire that occurred less than two blocks from village boundaries April 9. Barrington Fire Chief Jim Arie said his department’s response times remain “better than any standard that’s out there.” Arie reported a 3:55 average fire response time and overall 2:47 ambulance response time for the month of March, noting that Lake Zurich aid, which is simultaneously dispatched with the Barrington Fire Department to avoid train congestion, has not been needed seven out of nine times because Barrington arrived on scene first. “We’ve had nothing but positive feedback from the neighboring communities

who work with us,” Arie said. “It’s working and it’s working well.” Trustee Pete Douglas questioned the fact that no automatic aid agreement is in place for the Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District, which responded to a garage fire on the 1000 block of South Grove Avenue with an initial response time of more than five minutes last week. The fire, which quickly spread to the home and attic, required the activation of the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System. Crews from Hoffman Estates, Palatine, Cary, Fox River Grove, Lake Zurich and Buffalo Grove were called to action. The Barrington Fire Department was not. Arie said his department would have been called on the second box alarm due to the way the home was registered with MABAS, but a second alarm was not required. President Karen Darch requested that Arie work with the BCFPD to make sure the village fire department is listed foremost on their MABAS cards. “It’s extremely unusual for neighbors not to work with

lete any inappropriate photos that are forwarded to their cellphone or to their computer. “They don’t realize how serious it is,” Borst said. “Some kids take it as a compliment that someone would send them such a photo. It’s exciting to them.” Rather than discussing a change in school policy, Arnett said this case serves as an example that Barrington 220’s “policy works” with “procedures in place to quickly address a sexting situation when it occurs.”

Arnett said school counselors have always taken a pro-active approach to preventing sexting by speaking to students in a group setting, and health instructors have addressed the mental health aspects of sexting while librarians address Internet dangers. “Our librarians talk about the ‘digital tattoo’ that a student leaves every time an image is shared online,” Arnett said. Arnett said if anything, this incident will lead to sexting and Internet dangers be-

each other,” Douglas said. A vacancy is now being filled by overtime in the Barrington Fire Department after former assistant chief Donald Wenschhof resigned March 23 and joined the BCFPD in the same role. Village board members authorized Barrington Fire and Police Commissioners to fill this vacancy within the next couple of weeks. Village Manager Jeff Lawler said Lt. Bruce Peterson will likely be sworn in as assistant fire chief. The lieutenant role and subsequent ranks will then be filled by department personnel. The remaining firefighter-paramedic position will be filled by a candidate who was dismissed Jan. 1 when the department downsized due to the village’s split from the BCFPD, Lawler said. Trustee Paul Hunt said the board “believes in being good neighbors and would like to make sure the right decisions are being made right away to make sure the Barrington area is safe.” Darch said automatic aid conversation is still on the table for the BCFPD if they choose.

ing addressed at a younger age, perhaps to fourth- and fifth-graders who use cellphones on their bus rides to and from school. Winkelman encouraged parents to partner with the child’s school in “preparing students for a healthy entrance into adulthood without the life-altering regrets and damage sexting can imprint on a young person’s future,” and to speak to their child at home. Barrington police will continue to work with the Barrington 220 School District, Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office and Children’s Advocacy Center in Cook County. It has not yet been determined whether or not criminal charges will be pursued, according to an official Barrington Police Department press release sent Friday.

Fire district names new assistant fire chief By TARAH THORNE LAKE BARRINGTON – A new assistant chief has joined the Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District. Donald Wenschhof III, a 24-year veteran firefighter and paramedic, will serve local residents under Chief Jeff Swanson. Swanson said he believes Wenschhof’s experience will Donald prove invalu- Wenschhof III able as district officials move plans forward to improve service. “We are extremely fortunate to welcome Don to our team,” Swanson said. “His knowledge of the district and his track record of implementing operational solutions that speed response time and deliver consistently-improving levels of service match perfectly with the culture of excellence we are building here.” Wenschhof, who has lived in the district for 33 years, said he could not pass up the opportunity to help with the newly independent fire department. “The opportunities here for public service and professional growth far outweigh anywhere else,” Wenschhof said. “Years from now, I want to look back and be able to say I helped build an operation that serves residents better than anything they had before.” Established in 1940, the district serves portions of Barrington Hills, South Barrington, Lake Barrington and Inverness; and portions of unincorporated Cook, Lake and McHenry Counties.

eter Chang, senior at Barrington High School, has raised thousands of dollars for charities and volunteers at least

20 hours a week to create BHSTV videos. Many of those videos have helped raise money for the charities Chang supports. Lake Barrington Area Foundation through their Youth Council Community.

Stephans: Congratulations on being honored at the school board meeting March 10 for your volunteerism. How do your BHS-TV videos have a positive impact on the Barrington community? Chang: BHS-TV videos are basically videos I create for charities. I make several videos and it has a positive impact because they raise money for various charities. Stephans: What has been the most rewarding and challenging parts of high school? Chang: I really like seeing the projects that I work on pay [off] with the charities by just creating a simple video that can raise $100,000 or more. I have made some great friends while doing BHS-TV also. The most challenging would probably be that feeling you get right before you get your test or project back and how it might affect your grade badly, even if you studied really hard. [That can be] very stressful. Stephans: What are your academic plans this fall? Chang: I am planning to attend Yale, but ultimately I am mostly undecided.

Barrington High School senior Peter Chung has been actively engaged in community volunteer service through the school’s production club, BHS-TV. Stephans: What do you do in your spare time? Chang: I am involved with many school clubs. I am part of the Latin Club Junior Classical League and the Latin Scholastic Bowl. I am studying a lot of mythology right now and am in the science Olympia, and we [went] to state on April 12. I help unite people for large school events and am part of the

Stephans: You said that it’s up to students your age to make a difference in the world. What do you mean by that? What future volunteer opportunities would you like to participate in? Chang: Even though students are very limited, there is a lot of gridlock in the government. So student charity work is where a great deal of help has been done. People underestimate the power students have. I have three friends who have started their own charities from scratch successfully. We should see teenagers who are successful rather than wild road partiers. In June, we have a Relay For Life live stream and in August I am going to Guatemala to help build houses there. I will also be doing more entertainment events in the future. Stephans: What is your single favorite BHS-TV video? What was the hardest one to edit? Chang: The video I made for Down syndrome my sophomore year made $100,000, so

County Suburban Life reporter Kyle Stephans spoke to Chang about his commitment to giving back.

I really like that one. It also took the longest out of nearly all my videos to make, so it was definitely the hardest one to edit and a beast of a project. I also like the Jesus video that was about a stolen bobble head and the Men In Black spoofing video. I don’t really have one favorite project I love more than all the others. Stephans: Who inspires you? Chang: I have a lot of great teachers and friends I am around. Mr. Jeff Doles is my video projections teacher and he introduced me to make a difference through art and by making it different. He has provided inspiration and helped my student career. He has really done so much for me and the school. My Latin teacher Mr. Christopher Conrad taught me about hard work and giving 110 percent. I have spent more than four years with him for the Latin Scholastic Bowl and he has done a lot with me. Stephans: What would you like to do after college? Chang: I just have hints about what I want to do in

college. I love learning and knowing things, so it will be really hard to pick a topic and study it for at least four years. I am just keeping my options open right now. Stephans: What was some of the best advice you ever received these past four years? Chang: My European history teacher had a very good quote. It was, “Even if you are thinking outside the box, you are still thinking in someone else’s box.” Bias is a big part of the class and what we read. This is saying that people write and present you with information with a biased view of something to try to get you to think their way. I thought it was an interesting quote when I heard it. Stephans: What’s your advice to younger students who have not yet found their niche in student activities? Chang: It’s never too late to join a club. I would advise them to join a smaller club that has a great idea and work to a higher position. You really should try to put yourself out there and do something interesting.

Forum, resources available to Lake County crime victims By TARAH THORNE

Learn more GRAYSLAKE – Community members with strong emotions gathered Thursday to discuss the life-long consequences of crime, which hit close to home for many attendees. In honor of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 6 Milton through 12, the Coronado Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office annually hosts an afternoon of raising crime victim awareness. Local victims share their Michael e x p e r i e n c e s Nerheim with the local criminal justice system, and several public service professionals receive awards for their efforts in assisting crime victims. The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office Victims’ Rights Week event was held for the first time in a more public format in the College of Lake County’s Grayslake Campus auditorium. Several dozen community members gathered to listen to keynote speaker and Chicago artist Milton Coronado. A few victims who have spent much time with local victims’ advocates moved the crowd with speeches. One guest speaker was Lake County mother Hope Chapa. Chapa spoke of her 9-monthold son’s murder in 2001. Baby Noah was found to have been shaken to death by the husband of his daily caretaker. Fighting back tears behind the microphone, Chapa said she never had to deal with the local criminal justice system prior to her personal tragedy. “I put all my trust in the state’s attorney’s office,” Chapa said. “After the trial, when justice served in 2004, I knew that the office had fought very hard for Noah and the rest of my family.” Milton Coronado said in addition to wanting to share his story, his goal was deliver an even greater message – a message of hope and inspiration.

Tarah Thorne –

Lake County State’s Attorney Michael Nerheim recognized the Waukegan Police Department’s Gang Intelligence Unit as being the recipients of the Law Enforcement Award at the National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Event at the College of Lake County on April 10. “I believe it takes special people to overcome adversity,” Coronado said. “Although they might not know it, people are built to go through [adversity].” Now a father of two young sons, 33-year-old Chicago resident Coronado first faced such adversity at the age of 5 when he lost his mother to medical complications. By high school, Coronado said he was involved with street gangs, drug and alcohol use, vandalism and was often skipping school. “I was rebelling against society, the law, the church and my parents,” Coronado said. “Vandalism was a rush, but it’s wrong. It’s a sin and it’s a crime.” One of the acts of vandalism that Coronado was referring to was graffiti art. Coronado said he tried to maintain a close relationship with his father, working as a summer caricature artist at Six Flags Great America and waking up at 4 a.m. every Sunday to help his father with their family construction business. But one day Coronado’s father did not wake up for work. “My father was shot in the head Sept. 30, 2001,” he said. “He died instantly.” Coronado continued to pursue his art passion at the American Academy of Arts in Chicago, receiving his bachelor’s degree after taking a brief leave during his father’s passing. Coronado married in 2006 shortly after becoming a youth pastor co-founding the youth

outreach service known as Street Art Ministry in 2005. The ministry now travels both nationally and internationally teaching art classes and speaking to communities and law enforcement about his life experience. Street Art Ministry is a way for youth to become involved in community service by doing the art they enjoy,

he said. Outreach projects are scheduled nationwide where youth can use aerosol paint to create a graffiti mural with a positive message on city walls, with permission from public stakeholders. Street Art Ministry is open to all ages and does not require previous artistic experience. Coronado admits his life has not been easy. “I don’t want people to ever experience the pain that me and my siblings experienced,” he said. “I don’t want to be another number and didn’t want to be another lost youth. I started reading, writing, painting, drawing and speaking to stay busy.” Coronado said it’s important to take such recovery one

day at a time. “You cannot appreciate greatness until you go through challenges,” Coronado said. Coronado encouraged his audience to “become a rescuer” and to help others experiencing the same hardship. “I don’t think we are supposed to ever completely heal,” he said. “That’s how memories live on.” Coronado said he never took advantage of the crime victims’ services in his community because he was too scared to speak out. “Now I understand that there are people who are ready to help with a sincere and warm heart,” he said. Lake County State’s Attorney Michael Nerheim said there are many crime victims’ resources in the area that most residents don’t know about. “We have more victims counselors than any other state’s attorney’s office in Illinois, including a series of specialized units,” Nerheim said. “We aren’t going to wait for cases to come to the courthouse before we start to care.”

By STEPHANIE KOHL Barrington Suburban Life Contributor • Thursday, April 17, 2014

BARRINGTON – An opera singer from Barrington is fundraising for the chance of a lifetime. Caitlin (McVeigh) Reyna, a former Barrington resident and 2002 graduate of St. Anne School, has been accepted into the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria, to run July 4 Caitlin through Aug. 15. Reyna “I applied to keep furthering my education as not only a singer, but as a music professional,” Caitlin Reyna said from Fort Bragg in North Carolina, where her husband Ruben Reyna, an infantryman in the Army, is stationed. But, the $7,500 tuition is something the couple can’t afford. With her husband’s long, unpredictable hours, Caitlin Reyna is only able to work part time as a vocal and piano teacher, and performs opera and is in musicals throughout the area when she can, she said. “Part of being in the military means accepting you make far less money than you do in the civilian sector,” Caitlin Reyna said. So to raise the funds, she has turned to FundRazr. “It is an amazing program, but as an Army family the tuition is challenging,” Caitlin Reyna wrote on her fundraising page. “Ruben has made sacrifices as a soldier in the Army. He works long, grueling hours making far less [than] what he would in the civilian side. Though we have chosen a harder path than some, Ruben and I are committed to our careers and support one another.”

Caitlin Reyna shadowed her husband during Army Day. Reyna said Army Day is a day for spouses to do personal training, shooting and dress in airborne gear with the soldiers.

“Not only would it be an incredible experience to work with the experienced musicians, it would be a major step in my career,” Caitlin Reyna said, explaining the program prepares its participants for a professional career. At just 26 years old, Caitlin Reyna has been singing for

years, with her mother claiming she would mimic singing as young as 6 months old. As she grew up, she participated in musical theater and school performances and was a member of Starmakers, located in Buffalo Grove. When she was a sophomore in high school, she heard about a program at Northwestern, called the National High School Music Institute. The program gave kids an idea of what it would be like to be a music major. Caitlin Reyna thought it was a program for all types of a mu-

sic, but a discussion with someone involved with the program informed her it was geared toward opera. She decided to audition anyway, using jazz and Broadway pieces, and to her surprise, she received an acceptance letter. She attended the program that summer, and fell in love with opera. Caitlin Reyna loves to be on stage and acknowledged that although singing is a very vulnerable act, she likes that she is able to make a connection with people via her performances. If Caitlin Reyna is unable to

raise the funds by May 13, she will not be able to attend the program. “It’s a really impressive program,” Caitlin Reyna said, adding it would help her immensely in moving forward professionally. Although she is seeking donations to attend this prestigious program, Caitlin Reyna has also offered that for anyone who donates at least $20, she will provide a 30-minute piano and voice lesson free via Skype.

Career specialists offer helpful tips to young job seekers BARRINGTON – Be punctual, network with family and friends and learn how to “tell a story in a manner that makes people interested in you” are a few tips two Barrington career specialists recommend for young people seeking summer employment. “Punctuality is a timeless request of employers,” Barrington High School Business Internship Coordinator Ellen Corcoran said. For 13 years, Corcoran has been teaching Barrington students the importance of developing what she calls the “soft skills” of being on time, dressing professionally and learning how to get along with people. Corcoran said these skills are vital to winning jobs. Corcoran advises young people to network with family and friends, and families of friends. “This is often overlooked.” Corcoran said. Corcoran said job applicants also need to remember to dress well and “even to drop off an application because first impressions count.” Chris Campbell, executive director of CareerPlace, a Barrington-based non-profit, volunteer- driven organization that has assisted job seekers for 20 years, said developing good verbal and written skills is extremely important. “Know your strengths,” the former toy manufacturing marketing executive said. “Be able to communicate what

COMMUNITY VOICE Bill Hobbs values you can bring to an organization and be able to tell a story in a manner that makes people interested in you.” Why use stories? “The story form is more memorable and personable,” Campbell said, “They must be told in an honest way.” Because it’s difficult to talk about one’s own accomplishments, Campbell suggests writing them down and then “creating opportunities to deliver them in front of another person that can give you feedback.” Campbell advises job seekers to use the “three B’s,” when discussing accomplishments. “Be brief, be believable and bridge back to your strengths,” Campbell said, meaning “keep coming back to your core message and what you can deliver to the organization.” When Corcoran was asked what the summer youth market looks like, she was upbeat, claiming it is “definitely improving over past years.” Growth areas include food service and retail jobs, Corcoran said.

You’re telling me I lived in a penthouse? I’m watching an episode of a house-hunting show taking place in Chicago. The Realtor tells his clients, “I’m going to show you a vintage penthouse condo in a trendy neighborhood.” Excited by the prospect of viewing a glamorous structure atop a high-rise, perhaps in Lincoln Park, I am flabbergasted when I see him take the prospective buyers up a triple flight of stairs inside a three-flat in a building that looks exactly like the one in which I grew up. He then leads them into the third-floor apartment, identical to the place where I’d spent my childhood. Back then the building was not considered vintage, OFF THE just old, and the only thing DEEP END trending in the downhill Judi neighborhood was the desire Veoukas to get out before alleged gangs took over. Penthouse? We lived on that high third floor because it was cheaper than the first or second. Apparently, gentrification has replaced the supposed gangs and those who feared them, and our third-floor apartment has become (literally) a top-of-the-line condo penthouse! I remember when relatives used to climb those same stairs on Sunday visits. I can still hear them call for water as they’d cross the threshold. Old Uncle Morris would then sip his drink, clutch his chest and grumble in his thick accent, “It was better in the Old Country. I lived in a shack with goats coming in and goats going out. No stairs.” Supposed gangs or not, we lived there until I was 16. Since the local high school, according to my mother, contained these socalled hoodlums, I went to a school three city buses away. No one would date me except for the sole boy on my block whose mother also feared for his safety and sent him to the same school. “Do you want to come up?” I asked this boy after our first date, as we said our goodnights in the vestibule. The Realtor on TV, by the way, is describing the vestibule as “classic and chic, impressive to guests, the gateway to heaven.” Classic and chic? I still recall that the boy from so long ago saying, as he rubbed a cobweb hanging from the entryway’s onebulb-on-a-string fixture out of his hair, “Climbing those stairs one time was enough. You really want me to come up?” The couple on the house-hunting show asks the Realtor their own question. “Is there a gym nearby?” they inquire. I can almost hear Uncle Morris, Aunt Minnie and Cousin Alfred all say in unison, “For heaven’s sake, why would anyone living on top of this crazy mountain need a gym?”

8SOUND OFF This is a rebuttal to the person who voiced their opinion about college athletes forming a union. What greater institution of Northwestern could the players and students have to enhance their law degrees from a top law school? Not all players are scholarship players. The NCAA and universities have been reaping the benefits of the talents of these students for more than 30 years. The NCAA Final Four in itself generated tickets sales of more than $60 million. … The coach is trying to sway public opinion by saying he’s against it. However, he’s only been prepped by the attorneys that are anti-union. So Northwestern, face up to the fact, it’s a law. They have a right to form [a union]. Let them vote and drop your appeal.

Ambiance, food make Tavern the place to be LIBERTYVILLE – In an upscale eatery reminiscent of the 1920s and folklore is the opportunity to have a dining adventure just around the corner. Tavern, at 519 N. Milwaukee Ave., offers contemporary dining, creative cocktails, beautiful decor and more. One can choose to catch up with a date or friends in the lounge or bar areas on the main floor, or experience a medley of flavors in the dining area upstairs. My date and I arrived earlier than our reservation time – reservations for dining are recommended – so we took a seat in the lounge area until our table was ready. We were immediately greeted and seated by friendly waitstaff. The rooms are outfitted with stained glass windows, high ceilings, chandeliers, warm colors, oversized wine bottles, vintage books, large couches, mirrors, pieces of artwork and exposed wood beams – all of which made us feel as though we were in an adult’s version of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” if there was a scene involving a speakeasy. When our table was ready we were lead up a winding staircase and greeted by a maitre d.’ The maitre d’ also checked on us throughout our meal to make sure we were having an enjoyable experience. My date and I started by ordering an appetizer. We opted for the fried calamari. This dish exceeded our expectations. The calamari melted in our mouths like butter, and I did not taste anything “rubbery,” as I have in other calamari dishes. Other appetizers that caught our attention included caviar potato chips, Shetland island Scottish smoked salmon and baked gulf Shrimps de Jonghe. We were also served crostini with homemade hummus that were complimentary. For our main dishes I ordered angel hair pasta and my date ordered a USDA prime 8-ounce New York strip. Tav-

Sondheim shines in updated ‘Road Show’ • Thursday, April 17, 2014



Michael Aaron Lindner (left) and Andrew Rothenberg star in the Stephen Sondheim musical, “Road Show,” at Chicago Shakespeare. CHICAGO – At last, a version of Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Bounce” that audiences can fully embrace. The show, slimmed down and judiciously reordered, previously took the stage as “Bounce” in 2003 and “Wise Guys” and “Gold!” before that. It rocks in its current pared-down iteration at the upstairs theater of Chicago Shakespeare, where it’s in the capable hands of director Gary Griffin. The reinvigorated play, featuring music and lyrics by Sondheim and a book by John Weidman, is based on a true story of the dashing Mizner brothers, Addison and Wilson, performed by Michael Aaron Lindner and Andrew Rothenberg, respectively. Set at the dawn of the 20th Century, the story follows the far-flung adventures of the pair as they seek to make their fortune by capitalizing on whatever opportunities come their way.

Addison finds himself investing in a string of enterprises that quickly go bust, from a pineapple plantation in Hawaii and a gems import shop in India to a fireworks manufac-

He later ends up marrying the rich widow of streetcar tycoon Charles T. Yerkes, appropriating her money to manipulate prize fighting events, underwrite a

flop of a Broadway play and get high on coke, among other shady pursuits. Addison, a self-taught architect, makes his mark designing unique houses in Palm Beach for a wealthy clientele.

Barrington baseball falls in close game against Cary Grove By ANDY SCHMIDT Barrington Suburban Life Contributor BARRINGTON – Everything appeared to be finally going Barrington’s way during its nonconference game with Cary-Grove on Thursday. The Broncos had a one-run lead and were one out away from coming away with a victory. Unfortunately, the Trojans were able to tie the game in the seventh and then scored twice in the eighth inning for a 5-4 victory. Cary did not have a single hit in the decisive eighth inning. The Broncos fell behind 2-0 in the first inning after starter Richie Stefan got hit by a comebacker and couldn’t find his control after that, hitting two hitters and walking two more. Stefan would be pulled from the game after pitching just two thirds of an inning and would spend the rest of the game with

“It’s just how baseball goes like that. They didn’t hit much well anyway. I think Cary only had four or five hits. We had seven walks and three hit basemen. We ended up giving them the game.” Pat Wire Barrington coach

ice on his pitching hand. Jake Zyzda came in and was able to hold down Cary for the next four and a third innings. Barrington took the lead in the fifth inning off Cary Grove starter Danny Schmidt as Anthony Lombardi led off with a triple and scored on a groundout by Jack Lenz. One out later, Mitch Pfeiffer singled and scored on a two-run homer by Shane Yorton that was just right of the 380 sign in dead center field. That lead held into the seventh when Daniel Kubiuk came into the game look-

ing for his second save in as many days. After an error allowed Jason Barrett to reach, Kubiuk came back with two straight strikeouts to pull the Broncos within one out of the victory. Wyatt Mascarella singled, however, to score Barrett with the tying run and the game went to extra innings. In the eighth, a leadoff walk to Jake Coon led to a two-out single by pinch hitter Brendan Battle which gave the Broncos a 4-3 lead. Kubiuk went back to the mound looking to finish the game off but after getting the

first man out, he walked the next three batters. Barrett then hit a soft liner toward third base but the throw home looking to force Jim Perkins at the plate was high and went to the backstop which allowed Perkins to score the tying run. Kubiuk then uncorked a wild pitch to Matt Sutherland, which allowed Larkin Hanselmann to score with the winning run. Broncos coach Pat Wire said things just didn’t go his team’s way for the afternoon. “It’s just how baseball goes

like that,” Wire said. “They didn’t hit much well anyway. I think Cary only had four or five hits. We had seven walks and three hit basemen. We ended up giving them the game. They’re a good ball club, they play good defense and they snagged down a couple of deep flyballs, but the bottom line is we have to throw for strikes and close the game out which we didn’t. It’s just the way it goes.” Yorton had three hits and fell just a triple short of the cycle while Lenz had two RBIs for the Broncos. Wire added that Yorton is someone who has really played well in recent games. “He’s swinging the bat really well for us right now,” Wireadded. “It makes it exciting for us going forward. He’s a senior looking for an opportunity. He didn’t play much last year and he’s really taking it upon himself to do well.”
