Helping people in need While the holidays are often associated with receiving presents, it’s important to remember that it’s a good time to give back, too. Mark Scarpelli, founder of Antioch’s Shop with a Cop program and owner of Raymond Chevrolet Kia in Antioch, said the program helped more than 50 underprivileged local youth celebrate the holidays early this year. The Antioch Police Department escorted select students from Antioch Upper Grade School during a shopping trip at Walmart, which included a visit from Santa. You can find that story on page 3. Also invested in the well-being of others is the Lindenhurst Early Childhood Center. The center celebrated its 22nd annual Gift of Giving event. During Gift of Giving, the center collects gently

COMMUNITY CORNER: JIM LOMONACO, THE SHIPPING POINT The worst case of last-minute holiday gift shipping Jim LoMonaco saw last year was a man who spent $450 to ship a package overnight from Gurnee to California in time for Christmas. “He said his family’s Christmas would be ruined if it didn’t get there in time,” said LoMonaco, owner of The Shipping Point since 2009. The Shipping Point, 5250 Grand Ave., Unit 14, has wrapped, padded, boxed, packaged and shipped items in just about every shape and size imaginable, said LoMonaco, who runs the business with his sister, Lauren Martinez. LoMonaco, a Gurnee resident, shared tips to avoid overspending and have an easy holiday shipping experience with Gurnee Suburban Life reporter Jesse Carpender.

What is this season like for you? It’s pretty crazy. We do double the packages of our normal months, about 500. We’re an authorized agent for USPS, UPS, FedEx and others, so it’s convenient for customers to instantly check rates all in one place. People should send gifts by Dec. 16 to avoid paying extra.

What are some tips on holiday shipping? 1. Don’t use string or wrap your package in brown paper. 2. Fill the box. Bring the boxes to us open, where we can then fill the empty space with the right type of packing material before properly sealing the box. 3. Do make sure to use a new box. A corrugated box just isn’t meant to be used over and over. It’s worth the small cost of a new, sturdy box to

make sure your package is safe. 4. Do put an extra bag around liquids. If anything is leaking from your box, delivery companies are required to dump the entire package in the trash. It’s worth the time to seal a bag around any liquids in the box. 5. Don’t get fancy with the address label. You’ll want to make this easy for package handlers to direct your shipment. It’s best to use a black marker, and clearly print the address. Also, put an extra address label inside the box, just in case the outside label becomes torn or unreadable.

Do you send letters to Santa? We do. And if you send something to the North Pole, they’ll send something back. For questions about shipping gifts, call The Shipping Point’s free Holiday Shipping Hotline at 847-336-4444 until Dec. 25.

Antioch police help needy children cross off items on their wish lists By CASSANDRA DOWELL cdowell@shawmedia.com

Kowalczyk, who was dressed as the elf, said she and other employees, as well as community members, volunteered their time to interact with the children. “All the kids were smiling. They were so happy to receive something for Christmas,” she said. “It was a day for them.”

Sgt. Rick Moritz of the Antioch Police Department said the event is an opportunity for the department to build relationships with local youth. “The opportunity comes along once a year to have a total day for [the students] to see us in a different light than maybe they’re used to,” Moritz said. “It breaks down the barriers if they’re afraid of police. The day is really about them so we try to pamper them up. We take it to heart.”

ore than 50 students from Antioch Upper Grade School enjoyed the holidays early during Antioch’s Shop with a Cop program Dec. 11. The program celebrated its 12th year of giving back to the community by serving more underprivileged children than in years past, said Mark Scarpelli, founder of Antioch’s Shop with a Cop program and owner of Raymond Chevrolet Kia in Antioch. Antioch Upper Grade School selects students they believe will most benefit from the program. “This night is my favorite night of the year,” Scarpelli said. “To see the smiles on the kids’ faces. It’s amazing to be a part of their holiday.” The program began at the Antioch Police Department, where participants ages 5 to 14 received presents and enjoyed pizza dinner. Nearly 15 police officers escorted the children in squad cars with lights flashing and sirens blaring to Raymond Chevrolet Kia to receive additional presents and then to Walmart Supercenter in Antioch. Raymond Chevrolet Kia contributed about $3,000 for the kids’ Walmart shopping trip, Scarpelli said. Each child also received a $100 gift card from Walmart to spend during the event. Walmart assistant manager Kathryn Kowalczyk, of Antioch, managed the event at Walmart. Kowalczyk said that although children were encouraged to shop for themselves, many chose to get presents for “mom, dad, sister and brother. “They cared about their family. That was cool. We wrapped those presents for them.” Children were escorted by police officers during their shopping trip and checked

In their PEOPLE YOU SHOULD KNOW

Life

CAMERON GOOD CHICAGO BEARS EDITOR AND DESIGNER

Barrington High School alum Cameron Good has been working as a seasonal video editor/3D graphics designer for the Chicago Bears organization since the beginning of the 2013 NFL season. The May 2013 college graduate/athlete told Barrington Suburban Life reporter Tarah Thorne more about his thrilling, new job. Tell us about your daily role with the Chicago Bears. My main roles include creating content for the videoboard at Soldier Field on game days, and editing segments for our Chicago Bears Network productions. I work on “Bears Gameday Live” (10:30 a.m. Sundays, FOX Chicago), “Gamenight Live” (10:30 p.m. Sundays, FOX Chicago), “Inside The Bears” (9:30 p.m. Fridays, 6 p.m. Saturdays and 11 p.m. Sundays, FOX Chicago), and on various web segments on ChicagoBears.com. I am responsible for studio preparation and for running cameras for our TV programs.

What are your game-day responsibilities? I’m on the Bears’ 25-yard sideline every home game to communicate with the NFL and television networks regarding game commercial breaks. It’s a job not many people know about, but it is important to make sure every game fulfills its required amount of commercial breaks for advertising purposes. Specifically, my productions, which air on the scoreboard, range from highlight videos, player sit-down interviews and 3D graphics content for fan prompts and sponsored activities during the games.

Had a job like this always been a dream for you? Absolutely. As a four-year, three-sport athlete at Barrington High School and then continuing to play football at Drake University (Des Moines, Iowa), my passion has always been in sports. The biggest challenge for me was to figure out how I could make a career out of sports. As much as I loved playing football, I knew that being a professional athlete was out of the question. It wasn’t until my junior year at BHS that I knew I wanted to do video production. I always loved making home videos throughout the years, but it wasn’t until I took Jim Doles’ BHS class that I learned that there are actually career opportunities within this field. This led to many opportunities, such as field trips to television networks, winning local and national video contests from our productions, and finally being able to start my own TV show, “Goody Tuesdays,” which aired on the Weekly School Video Announcements during my senior year of high school. My experience in video production expanded in college as I worked as a cameraman for Drake basketball games and a producer for Drake Broadcasting Systems.

Barrington High School alum Cameron Good has just begun his new, post-college job as a video editor/3D graphics designer for the Chicago Bears Network. Good works on TV and web material during weekdays and coordinates commercial breaks from the field during game days. Good commutes from Barrington and says the role is a dream job.

What would be your advice for other high school or college students looking to go into the sports broadcasting field? What has worked to your advantage? My advice for aspiring broadcast students is to be ready to adapt in diverse situations. You may have to make sacrifices in order to reach your highest goal. I took an unpaid summer internship with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2012. Being away from home in a new environment for an entire summer was a big challenge, but it was a big reason why I am with the Chicago Bears today. I also think it’s extremely important to expand your knowledge and experience in the different facets of video production: shooting, editing, writing, etc. The more you can do, the greater chance you will succeed in this field.

Is football your favorite sport? How long have you been a Chicago Bears fan? Basketball was actually my favorite sport for a long

time, but once I figured out I was a lot better at football, it quickly overtook basketball. I’ve been a lifelong Chicago sports fan, so this opportunity was certainly exhilarating and very humbling for me to work for the team that I love.

What’s been most rewarding with your job thus far? Challenging? Just having the ability to contribute and help out a team which I’ve idolized for years is the most rewarding part of this job. I’ve also had a great experience working with the players who have great personalities and are very kind toward the Chicago Bears staff. I’d say the most challenging part of the job is the pressure that comes along with production. If there is one mistake on TV, a videoboard or our website, it can be seen by thousands and sometimes millions of people. Although, it’s thrilling to be able to work through problems and perform in high-pressure situations.

What do you like to do when you aren’t busy working? I’ve been very fortunate

to live at home to commute for work, so I really enjoy hanging out with family and friends in the Barrington area. My other hobbies include community service through our Bears Care organization, playing pickup basketball and sneaker-collecting.

Tell us a little bit about your experience growing up in the Barrington area. Do you keep in touch with BHS? I enjoyed my experience at BHS. I still keep in contact with many teachers and coaches I had over the years. I’ve made many visits to see BHS video production students. In terms of specifics, I had the opportunity to speak to the BHS football team before they faced Fremd High School in 2011. It was the first time since 2004 that Barrington had defeated Fremd in football, so Coach Sanchez was very happy I came to help break the curse. Nowadays, I’m frequently back at the high school to support my brother, Justice, who is an active member of theater, choir and reality club.

Gift of Giving turns tots’ focus to others By CASSANDRA DOWELL cdowell@shawmedia.com LINDENHURST – Isabella Lebron, 5, had just finished packing one of 400 care boxes to be distributed to families in need before eagerly asking her teacher whether she could pack another box. “Not until everyone has a turn,” Lindenhurst Early Childhood Center teacher Anne Janke replied. “I know you love it.” Isabella was one of the Lindenhurst Early Childhood Center’s 90 3- to 6-year-old students who helped sort donations and pack care boxes Dec. 17 during the center’s 22nd annual Gift of Giving event.

“Children usually associate Santa’s character with get, get, get. This transforms [Santa] into a role model for the gift of giving.” Frank Davis Executive director of Lindenhurst Early Childhood Center

based off each child’s holiday wish list. Ean Ankney, 6, took extra care when packing the care boxes. “Is this shampoo or lotion?” Ean asked Janke while holding up a blue bottle. “Is this right?” Each care box was filled with 18 items, including canned vegetables, mac and cheese, cereal, paper towels, lotion and shampoo. Children decorated the boxes with drawings of candy canes, holiday ornaments and other fes-

tive images. Gift of Giving becomes a tradition because many students begin attending the school at age 3 and continue until about age 6, Janke said. “They get so excited because they love doing this,” she said. “The older kids look forward to it.” While the event teaches children about the value of giving back, it also teaches them to appreciate what they have, she said. “They understand that they are blessed,” she said. “They know that some kids don’t get three meals a day like they do; they know these kids need help. They learn they should be nicer to each other.” While students took turns packing items into care boxes, others greeted Santa, who went from classroom to classroom greeting children and encouraging them in their good deeds. Instead of asking children what they wanted for the holidays, Santa said, “I’m here to tell you I’m proud of what you’re doing for the community.”

Frank Davis, executive director of Lindenhurst Early Childhood Center, said many children look up to Santa, and to see him visit not for the purpose of asking what they want but telling them he is proud of them for helping others makes a strong impression. “Children usually associate Santa’s character with get, get, get,” Davis said. “This transforms [Santa] into a role model for the gift of giving.” Davis said the care boxes are packed and delivered over the course of two days, thanks to the help of parent and community member volunteers.

Lake County hopes to keep wreaths red By JESSE CARPENDER and CASSANDRA DOWELL editorial@lakecountysuburbanlife.com GURNEE – Brandon Olsen was the lucky student who plugged in Gurnee Fire Department’s red wreath at the Keep the Wreath Red Ceremony Dec. 6 at the Gurnee Fire Station 2, 6581 Dada Drive. Keep the Wreath Red is a national program that encourages residents to practice care with holiday decorations. As part of the program, both Gurnee fire stations display a wreath lit with red lights – as well as other fire stations in the county, including in Wauconda and Grayslake. If a fire is caused by holiday decorations, one of the light bulbs is changed to white. Ten Woodland Intermediate fifth-grade students attended the ceremony and toured the station. Olsen was chosen to light the wreath because he celebrated his birthday Dec. 3. Olsen said the most important thing he learned was to never leave candles unattended. “It happened in my neighborhood before that someone left a candle and it started a fire,” he said, adding that he’d tell his friends at school about the red wreath when he got

back to class. Steve Odden, fire inspector at Gurnee Fire Department, said the program is 20 years old and the fire department has had to change the bulbs to white only three times. “One was a candle and one was electrical in nature,” Odden said. Mike Davalle, fire medic and public education coordinator of Wauconda Fire District, often visits local schools and talks to students in grades second through fourth about fire safety. “A lot of kids that age are helping mom and dad set up lights,” Davalle said. “We tell them to go over all the lights and make sure there’s no cracks or frays before you plug them in so there are no shock hazards. If there is no cover on a [decoration light] bulb it can get really hot and cause a fire. If they have a live tree, we remind them to water it daily. Dry trees go up [in flames] faster than trees that are watered.” Like Gurnee, Davalle said, Wauconda has been fortunate to have few holiday decoration-related fires.

If you didn’t do so in 2013, you will get the chance to do so in 2014! Think of it as a “second chance,” a “do-over.” Another chance to say a kind word to a friend or to a neighbor who is having a difficult time or even a co-worker having a bad day. Do a good deed that says to someone that you care. Make time for others, pick up the phone to call an old friend or maybe “like” a friend’s Facebook page. So as we celebrate this joyous Christmas season and begin a new year, let us continue in the next year to be selfless, more friendly, more kind and much nicer to people we meet. Let us all carry that Christmas spirit of compassion, love, joy and peace with us as we embark upon a new year.

cdowell@shawmedia.com The annual tradition of gold coins appearing in Salvation Army red kettles keeps Lake County Salvation Army members guessing year after year. “It’s fun for us to guess what location will get [a gold coin] this year – will we get more than one?” said Maj. Heather Holman of the Salvation Army Waukegan Corps Community Center on Green Bay Road. “We have fun with it. It’s very exciting.” So far, 12 gold coins have been dropped in Lake County red kettles this holiday season; three were most recently dropped between Dec. 6 and Dec. 9. The coins were donated anonymously. Two one-tenth-ounce South African krugerrands, valued at about $128 each, were dropped into Salvation Army kettles at the Walmart in Round Lake Beach and the

‘Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the town, shoppers were looking for deals from diamonds to dolls in hopes that Dec. 25 soon would be here. Christmas is many things to many people. For some, it is the time for gift giving to friends and loved ones; it is the time to spend hours putting up decorations, baking cookies, going to holiday parties, singing Christmas carols and other holiday songs that never get old. For Christians, it is the commemoration of the birth of Jesus and is the real “reason for the season.” For some reason Christmas transforms people into kinder, more thoughtful, more caring, compassionate and giving individuals. Maybe that is what the Christmas spirit is all about. People smile more and say hello and “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas” to total strangers. There is something about Christmas that makes people happier, nicer and much more joyful. Despite the fact we complain of how increasingly commercialized Christmas has become, we still find ourselves like children possessing that true enthusiasm and excitement that makes us wake up in the early morn and rush to see what Santa has left under the tree. Once the last carol is sung, the last gift is unwrapped and the final meal has ended we transform back to being less

• GOLD COINS Continued from page 11 The philanthropic tradition of dropping gold coins into Salvation Army kettles dates back more than 25 years and is said to have started in McHenry County, according to the release. Since then, Salvation Army has received more than 400 gold coins of every type and description from anonymous donors, according to the release. Holman said the coins’ value brings the Lake County Salvation Army closer to its goal of raising $500,000 this holiday season. As of Dec. 12, the county Salvation Army had raised nearly $240,000, she said. Last year, the agency fell short of its $500,000 Red Kettle Campaign fundraising goal by about $100,000, she said. Red kettles will be available at 73 locations throughout the county until Dec. 24. However, the Red Kettle Campaign will continue through Jan. 31. Holman said that although the coins are fun to receive, any donation makes a difference.

“It all adds up,” she said. Money raised benefits local residents in need, including seniors in nursing homes and veterans. Holman said the organization has seen an increase in low-income families reaching out to Salvation Army both this and last year compared with previous years. “We’re going to be distributing more toys this year than the last few years,” she said. Holman said it’s difficult to describe how it feels to give back, adding that residents also can “adopt a family in need.” For those wishing to donate at their computers, virtual Red Kettles are available online. Donors can host a virtual Red Kettle, or sponsor a Red Kettle team, by going to The Salvation Army Metropolitan Division website at www. salarmychicago.org. Visitors to the site can register individually, as a group or a business by completing a registration form.

8IN BRIEF

Baseball ump visits RLHS during career event ROUND LAKE – Round Lake High School hosted its annual Career Panel Night with Major League Baseball umpire Dan Bellino as a celebrity guest. The event drew more than 100 parents and students. All grade levels came to network with more than 40 established professionals in education, business and computer sciences, the arts, public services, criminal justice and other fields. Bellino discussed how social media can affect personal and professional successes for today’s aspiring students and how to compete as a leader and a professional in today’s workplace. “The counselors’ goals were to allow the students direct exposure to an array of careers by speaking to the professionals themselves,” said Round Lake High School lead counselor Sarah Schaefer, who started the program.

By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com FOX LAKE – Pointing to rising labor costs and a number of capital improvements, the Fox Lake Village Board approved a 5 percent increase in the amount it collects in property taxes. The village doesn’t expect to collect all of the additional $169,000 it asked for, Village President Donny Schmit said. A state tax cap limits how much some local governments can increase their levies by tying the increases to the rate of inflation, which will be 1.7 percent on next year’s property tax bills. First-year growth is not sub-

� �� �

ject to the cap. While the village is pushing for new development, it doesn’t expect to capture much in the next property-tax cycle, Schmit said. The board also plans to ask residents in a March referendum for permission to take out $6 million in bonds to resurface streets. About 16 miles of streets are high-priority projects, Schmit said, adding that by financing the street improvements and doing them all at once, the village can get a better per-block rate. The village also is looking to take out a $3.1 million loan with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency to

� �! � ! �

�� � �������

build a new water tower and main in the Holiday Park subdivision. The loan would be paid using revenue from a rate hike passed earlier this year. The remainder of the extra $1 million a year generated by the increase will go toward other water and sewer infrastructure improvements and repairs. Fox Lake ran a surplus of $392,000 last year, ending fiscal 2012-13 with $4.9 million in its general fund, which translated to 163 days of cash on hand, according to annual financial statements submitted to the state. Some of that came from a rise in sales tax and video

gambling revenue, Schmit said. The plan is to use that money to hire a community development director and improve public transportation. The village is in the midst of negotiating a contract with its 911 center employees, who recently unionized. The three-year contract with employees of the Fox Lake Fire Protection District, which the village subsidizes, expires next year. The village also is in the middle of contract negotiations with its police and sewer department employees, both of which include salary increases. The cost of health insurance also is expected to rise.

– Katherine Puckett, national director of mind-body medicine for Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion

Music is medicine for soul at center By JESSE CARPENDER jcarpender@shawmedia.com

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America patient support music group inclues Ralph Tripp (from left), Katherine Puckett, Lina Schaal and Robbie Robinson. The group gets together for an hour each Tuesday for jam sessions. one to come and sing and play,” Schaal said. “It gives them time to relax and enjoy music.” She plays the piano, and doctors play guitar, harmonica and violin. Many of the patients are singers, Schaal said. Robinson said he still comes to the group when he can, but Schaal is “the driving force who makes it happen.” During a jam session, a young man once asked Schaal if he could play “Old McDonald” on the piano. He only knew the beginning of the song, so she filled in the rest. “[Jam sessions] are really just to get people out of the serious mode and into something more healthy, where they forget about this nasty word ‘cancer.’” she said. “It helps people know that we don’t have to be perfect.” Katherine Puckett, national director of mind-body medicine for Cancer Treatment

Centers of America in Zion, said music can be a form of escapism, as well as a release. “There’s a lot of stress that goes with the territory of cancer,” she said. “If I’m listening to someone playing music, I’m not going to be thinking about cancer and my fears. Music can release emotions and may open up something that feels stuck.” Puckett, who participates in the weekly music group, said it’s a great way to build community. During one session, Puckett heard a beautiful voice singing behind her. “It was a patient who had once been an opera singer,” Puckett said. “I saw her a couple weeks later, and she said that the group saved her life because it engaged her in music, which she loved, again.” Puckett said musicians sometimes visit the Cancer Treatment Center of Amer-

ica and go from room to room playing for patients or perform in the cafeteria or conference room. She said that for a while, a classically trained viola player would visit patients’ rooms and compose a song for them on the spot. “One of our patients said, ‘I waited my whole life to hear that song,’” she said. Robinson said his favorite song to sing is “Time” by Pink Floyd. “The lyrics are timeless – it’s about not wasting time, because time is not like money,” he said. “Money comes and goes, but you can’t invest time, and once you spend it, you can’t get it back. Cancer is like that – you have to live every day like it’s your last. Why worry about how long I’ll live? I have to focus on how I’m living.” Gurnee resident Mike Louie is a jazz musician who performs at Cancer Treatment of

America special events. “I played for a man and woman getting married,” Louie said. “The groom’s mother was in CTCA, so they had the wedding right there. It was very moving . . . I was playing music as they gathered, some jazz standards and more reserved songs.” Louie plays in hospitals and hospices because he wants to help people cope. “Before my mother passed away, I saw the progression of what she went through,” he said. Louie said seeing his mother lose her independence gave him an affinity for people in similar situations. His mother loved music, and when he visited, someone would be playing piano for her. “Most of us don’t think about people outside the mainstream. Sometimes it takes someone you love to open your eyes,” Louie said.

Fox Lake resident Robbie Robinson says the lasting effect of music is almost like medicine. When he sings, his body gets more oxygen, and he is mentally and spiritually calmed. That’s why Robinson and Lina Schaal, of Burlington, Wis., created a weekly music group at the Cancer Treatment Center of America in Zion for patients, caregivers and staff. The group, which started five years ago, gets together for hourlong jam sessions each Tuesday, Schaal said. Robinson and his family use music to cope with cancer. Robinson, his wife, daughter and other family members all have battled the disease. Robinson, who has been in remission for 11 years, enjoys singing, though he’s not formally trained and follows his gut to harmonize with other voices. “Music is as universal as laughter or crying,” he said. “It takes your mind off the pain and the downside of cancer.” When he was a patient at the center, Robinson would hear other patients say, “I miss my dog. If I had my dog, it would feel like home.” “For a musician, he’d feel like he was home if he had his guitar with him,” Robinson said. Schaal, who is a professional pianist, said the group is her way of giving back to Cancer Treatment Centers of America. “I do it because music is what helps me when I’m down in the dumps,” she said. “I practice piano when I’m sad, and play it heavier when I’m angry. My piano is my friend and helps me out of all types of moods. “We don’t want to be performers; we want every-

Sourdough English muffins in my frying pan.

Gifts from garden and oven to satisfy Seems like last year around this time, I was describing gardening gifts that would go to my family members, notably dried peppermint leaves tucked into tea bags. Those little sachets turned out to be a great gift but certainly aren’t the only option when it comes to giving gifts from your harvest. In previous years, I’ve also dried peppers and even ground them into red pepper flakes (the kind we heat lovers sprinkle on pizza) as a spice gift. Canned goods are a very popular option, and my sister gifted me last year with a batch of her fresh-picked strawberry jam. Frozen foods, such as freezer applesauce, also work, provided you can manage the logistics of getting the gift into someone’s hands quickly so they can pop it into the freezer. Baked goods are lovely as well, particularly pies and breads. (And zucchini bread makes excellent – and nicely spiced – work of all that lingering squash!!) Ah, but what if you were a somewhat lazy gardener this year? What if you plucked and ate your harvest in its entirety? I confess that this year I found myself pressed for time and limited in fresh produce. My tomato harvest was too

Luckily for me (and, hopefully, my gift recipients), I keep a sourdough starter bubbling merrily in my refrigerator! Its yeasty bubbles smile at me whenever I open the fridge, so I’m always looking for ways to use my sourdough and keep the starter continually refreshed. Bread is an obvious choice when it comes to sourdough, but I’ve found many creative alternatives, too. Why not try baking my own sourdough English muffins? For that matter, how about an adventure with sourdough pretzels? While I’m at it, why not try a sourdough coffee cake?

I hope, like me, that you are fine, But while I have you on the line ... I have a couple of simple questions. Who gives you all my gift suggestions? When first I wed, I got wonderful things: Necklaces, bracelets, diamond rings. One year you brought me a cashmere sweater, Then, a big change – and NOT for the better. The year I acquired that cordless ratchet, I thought you’d become psychopathic! It makes me wonder: Are you reading my lists? Or is hubby of mine giving assists? Did I really need a Craftsman drill? Talk about Christmas morn buzzkill! And when I asked for things more “me,” I’m sure you just ignored my plea. Why would you leave me pots and pans When my kitchen prowess is like Roseanne’s? And, about that elf-themed lingerie, Who suggested THAT go

Town administrator leaves for Lake Villa By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com FOX RIVER GROVE – The village is on the search for a new administrator – again. Village Administrator Karl Warwick confirmed he will be leaving to take the helm in Lake Villa. Warwick, who has a salary of $112,000 in Fox River Grove, will be paid the same amount in Lake Villa to be the town’s first village administrator. According to the U.S. Census bureau, Lake Villa has about 8,800 residents. Warwick is scheduled to leave the Fox River Grove job in mid-January. He was hired in Fox River Grove in September 2012 to replace longtime administrator Art Osten. Warwick, who lives in Gurnee with his wife, Tracy, and three children, said the move was a family decision.

He added he was having trouble selling his house. “It’s an opportunity to work in proximity to where I live,” Warwick said. “Lake Villa is a great community [with] nice people.” His commute will be reduced from 45 minutes to 10 minutes. “Fox River Grove is definitely an excellent community,” Warwick said. “The board members were great to me. ... It was a tough decision.” Before coming to Fox River Grove, Warwick was the assistant village administrator in Lindenhurst. He also previously worked in Grayslake for five years as senior assistant to the village manager and director of economic development. Village President Bob Nunamaker said village board members have started the

Billionaires find ways to become even richer It has been said that if someone becomes a billionaire, they are either very smart or very corrupt; and if they are both smart and corrupt, they can be destructive and dangerous. I don’t think you can pigeonhole all of the very rich in such a way, but there are some who do raise questions. You may have read the excellent expose by the Chicago Tribune in which they revealed some of the deals that the Koch brothers, who are the sixth-richest in the world, have manipulated some bigtime oil schemes. It has also been said that one man’s waste is another man’s treasure. The Kochs have stretched that notion to a ridiculous extreme. They are called the “Kings of Petcoke.” In the oil refinery business, pet coke is the

John S. Matijevich

slang word for petroleum coke. It is the slimiest residue of the refining process, with high sulfur and high carbon waste. And it’s dirtier than the dirtiest coal. It is so dirty that the Environmental Protection Agency has, through a settlement, mandated that if the refineries keep pet coke on their property, they ware required to build large, expensive containment facilities to prevent the waste from polluting neighborhoods and the communities. But billionaires are smart.

The Koch brothers developed the scheme where they buy up large properties away, but near, the refineries. They skirt the EPA protection and earn a fortune in doing so. They buy pet coke from the refinery and dump it into mountain piles of waste, where they store it and then sell it for huge profits. Petcoke is not only dirtier; it is cheaper than coal. Some power plants buy it to use as a cost-effective alternative mixing it with coal. China is by far the largest buyer of petcoke exports. Last year, 26 million barrels of pet coke were exported to China, compared with just over 2 million barrels five years before. Meanwhile, the victims in the petcoke scheme are children who live near those piles of tar and smut and can’t play outside. The

families power spray their houses every week, and who knows how much pollutant they are forced to inhale. There is little doubt that the Koch scheme is negatively affecting the health of these victims. But the Koch brothers aren’t worried about someone’s health; they are only concerned about their own wealth. It is sort of ironic that the Koch brothers are the same ones who tried to buy the eight regional newspapers owned by the Tribune Co. Imagine if they had been successful. Do you think the Chicago Tribune could have published the expose revealing their oil ventures? No way. In fact, half of the staff of the Los Angeles Times said they would quit if the Koch brothers became the owner.

The Koch brothers are the same schemers who, with their riches, provided grants to 150 colleges and universities, some with express contracts that those institutions would share the Koch brothers’ views. That comes close to breaching academic freedom and the spirit of democracy. But, when you are that rich, you must think you can buy anything. The Koch brothers vigorously oppose the concept of climate change. I would suggest that there would be a change of the moral climate if their questionable revenue schemes were put to a halt.

the explicit prohibition on the sale of eggs. However, it wasn’t so much the changes in the proposed ordinance as the changes on the board that heralded the ordinance’s passage. An election in April put then-Trustee Donny Schmit – one of the two trustees who voted in favor of the original ordinance – into the village presidency and brought in three new trustees, all of them

from his party’s slate. “I was for it, and everyone that ran with me on my slate were with me,” Schmit said. “We were all for it. We didn’t think it was any detriment to the village. There won’t be any roosters, no outside slaughter, and we’ve got regulations on the cages.” Only one of the four trustees who voted against original ordinance remains on the Village Board, Trustee Nancy Koske, who voted against the proposal again Dec. 10. In January, Koske raised concerns about potential eyesores. “I’m just not in favor of it,” she said at the January meeting. “I think it would be a mess. I just think it’s one more thing that will cause us problems. We have enough trouble trying to get people to clean up their yards.”

FOX LAKE – Nearly a year after rejecting an ordinance that would have allowed some residents to raise hens, the Fox Lake Village Board changed its mind. In a 5-1 vote Dec. 10, the board approved an ordinance that allows those living on plots zoned single-family residential to raise hens if they obtain a $50 permit, up to four on lots less than an acre and up to eight on larger lots. The ordinance has some minor changes from when it was rejected in a 4-2 vote in January, including increasing the required square footage per hen for the coop, changing a complete prohibition on the slaughter of hens on the property to no outdoor slaughter, and eliminating

“There won’t be any roosters, no outside slaughter, and we’ve got regulations on the cages.”

TCF Bank set to close 37 branches throughout area By LAWERENCE SYNETT lsynett@shawmedia.com Four TCF National Bank locations inside Jewel-Osco grocery stores throughout Lake County will close by the end of March. The closings are part of 37 bank branches in the Chicago area that will shutter their doors as part of a realignment of retail banking resources meant to support the company’s strategic growth initiatives, according to a news release. Five branches in McHenry County also will close, as well as a location in Barrington. “We determined our customer base at these branches could be served by other nearby TCF locations, enabling us to redirect resources to fund our growth initiatives,” said Thomas Jasper, TCF vice

chairman of funding, operations and finance, in the release. “We are working aggressively to minimize the impact of these changes on our customers, and we expect to retain many of the employees impacted by the consolidations.” Branches closing include those located inside grocery stores in Antioch, Zion, Spring Grove, Grayslake, Barrington, Wauconda, McHenry, Cary, Woodstock and Algonquin, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. Several of the locations to close are in northwest Indiana. TCF still will have 118 in-store Jewel branches throughout the Chicago region. “Our partnership has enabled both TCF and Jewel to

grow in the Chicago market over the last 16 years, delivering convenient services that make the Jewel-Osco stores a primary destination for consumers,” Jasper said. The changes will result in TCF incurring a one-time pretax charge to earnings of approximately $7.6 million in the corporation’s fiscal 2013 fourth-quarter earnings. With 199 locations, Wayzata, Minn.-based TCF has the third-largest number of branches in the Chicago metropolitan statistical area, according to Crain’s, trailing only market leader J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and retail player BMO Harris Bank. TCF also announced that it is expanding its ATM network in the area with 52 new machines in CTA elevated train stations throughout the city of Chicago.

Who will shine this season in girls’ hoops? By BILL PEMSTEIN editorial@lakecountysuburbanlife.com

accomplished. • Kaylie Kanzler (Grant): The Bulldogs’ key senior, Kanzler clearly can help Grant this winter. • Cassidy Kloss (Carmel) : This southpaw is a gifted scorer. She scored 14 consecutive points for her team in one win. • Leah Lach (Carmel): One of those players who does good things without much fanfare. She’s a big help to Carmel. • Lauren Nee (Wauconda) : She might not be tall but is regarded as the Bulldogs’ best player. • Kristen O’Brien (Warren) : She’s waited a long time to become an important player for the Blue Devils. And now her time has come. • Olivia Pawlak (Lakes): This 6-foot-2 player can run the floor well, and that’s good news for her Eagles. • Emma Rappe (Carmel): She

does the little things around the basket, and that helps Carmel’s cause. • Amy Reiser (Antioch): The taller of the twins, this Reiser is quick and takes the ball to the basket well. • Ashley Reiser (Antioch) : Like her sister, this freshman can get to the basket in a hurry. • Jasmine Sangster (Grant): The junior guard isn’t tall, but she can make things happen for her Bulldogs. • Carson Sparkman (Grayslake Central): Another speedy guard, Sparkman makes the Rams a fast club. • Brittney Thibeaux (Grayslake North) : At 6-foot-1, Thibeaux is a potent force in the paint for her Knights. • Amparo Vargas (Round Lake): If the Panthers can get her the ball, good things will happen.

Team rankings 1. Antioch: Tim Borries’ latest club has youth and speed, and that’s a good combination. 2. Carmel: The Corsairs have plenty of weapons to count on. 3. Grayslake North: That Kendall Detweiler and Brittany Thibeaux duo is tough to beat. 4. Grayslake Central: Morgan Dahlstrom is a handful for most teams in the FVC. 5. Grant: These Bulldogs have potential, as there is plenty of speed in this lineup. 6. Warren: Wins are hard to come about early, but there are some players to build around. 7. Wauconda: These Bulldogs look to rebound behind the play of Lauren Nee. 8. Round Lake: The Panthers are a work in progress and will get better.

Another girls’ basketball season has kicked off in the Lake County Suburban Life area. And a few of those clubs are off to great starts. Antioch, with a young roster, has knocked off a powerful club from Fenwick. Carmel Catholic won the Mundelein Tournament. And both Grayslake schools are playing well. It’s early in the season, and plenty will happen before playoffs begin next year. Who are the best teams our area? Again time will tell. But it’s time to pull out some of the best players in our area and give them their due. • Morgan Dahlstrom (Grayslake Central): Can we say she’s the best “tall” girl in the area?

She’s already had a few double-doubles in the early season. Dahlstrom will take basketball to college next year at the University of Southern Indiana. • Kendall Detweiler (Grayslake North): She’s become the school’s all-time leading scorer. And that’s saying something. • Alexa Duehr (Antioch): The sophomore shows no fear and takes the ball to the basket. • Maggie Fish (Grayslake North): You can’t really teach athleticism, so it’s a good thing this player came in with that skill. • Kathleen Felicelli (Carmel): A natural scorer, Felicelli is healthy this year and helping her Corsairs nightly. • Paige Gallimore (Antioch): Surprise player? Who scores 45 points in one game? That’s what this senior already has

Expect a shootout when Bears face Eagles Hub Arkush

Why does it feel like the Browns were the Bears last exhibition game and now things start for real? Because the Browns are one of the weaker teams in the league this year. With Philadelphia this week and the Packers to close out the season, it’s almost as if the Bears will have to win two playoff games just to get to the playoffs. The Eagles figure to show up angry this Sunday after getting upset at Minnesota last week to snap their five-game win streak and lose the chance to open up a two-game lead in the NFC East. Like the Bears, Philadelphia is 8-6 and vying for first place in their division, but would lose a tiebreaker if they don’t win out. Also like the Bears, they control

their own destiny. They play Dallas, the club that owns the tiebreaker over them, the final Sunday of the year. There’s a very good chance none of that will matter to the team that loses this Sunday night’s prime-time showdown between the Bears and Eagles. In addition to being in a very foul mood, the Eagles still are one of the hottest teams in the league, having won five of their last six and seven of their last 10. They will test the Bears on both sides of the ball. Philadelphia is eighth in the NFL in points scored, second in total offense, 10th throwing the football and – oh no, woe is me – they are first in the league running the ball and in average gain per run. In case you haven’t heard, the Bears are dead last in the league defending the run. LeSean “Shady” McCoy leads the NFL with 269 carries for 1,343 yards, a 5.0 average. He has a long of 57 and seven rushing touchdowns. He leads second-place Adrian Peterson by 122 yards. And for some inexplicable rea-

son, Eagles coach Chip Kelly elected to give the ball to McCoy just eight times last Sunday in Minnesota while throwing it 48 times, so he should be well-rested. The Eagles offense didn’t take flight until second-year pro Nick Foles was installed at quarterback. He’s now the NFL’s top-rated quarterback with a 117.0 rating, 23 touchdowns and just two interceptions. That ranks him significantly ahead of fellows named Manning, Rodgers, Brady and Brees, to name a few. We beginning to see the potential for trouble here? DeSean Jackson is having an All-Pro season, outpacing Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery with 75 catches for 1,275 yards, a 17.0 average and nine touchdowns. Riley Cooper has become a force as well with 743 receiving yards and seven touchdowns, and rookie Zach Ertz is emerging lately with four touchdowns. Fortunately, the Eagles aren’t near as impressive on defense, ranking

17th in points allowed and 30th in total defense. The Eagles are 16th against the run and just 31st against the pass. Can anyone spell “shootout?” The Eagles don’t rush the quarterback particularly well, nor do they do a great job protecting Foles, having allowed 39 sacks while notching 32. The Bears, on the other hand, have protected very well, allowing only 24 sacks all year. But they have managed to get to the opposing quarterback only 26 times. Big plays will be huge in this one as well, as the Eagles are seventh in the league at plus 9 in turnover/takeaway ratio, while the Bears are 10th at plus 6. The real difference between these two clubs is that the Eagles can hammer you with the run or pass, while the Bears can run but are more dependent on the pass. The Eagles also are stingier giving up points. Throw in one of the rowdiest home crowds in the NFL, and the Bears have their work cut out for them.

By J.C. TALON Fantasy football writer Did anyone else lose in the fantasy playoffs because Ray Rice decided not to score a 43-yard touchdown on the final play of the game? Ouch. Well, I guess it serves us right for starting Ray Rice. Week 16 is the championship round for many fantasy leagues. If you are fortunate enough to remain alive, here’s a look at the fantasy potential of select NFL games.

MATCHUPS TO EXPLOIT Cowboys (at Redskins), noon Sunday Mike Shanahan is reminiscent of the “Seinfeld” episode in which George was doing everything he could to get Steinbrenner to fire him. If the Washington coach shows up for Sunday’s game in a naked suit, we’ll have confirmation. The Redskins are giving up a

league-worst 31 points a game. Must-start: Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant, Jason Witten Solid Play: Dan Bailey Last Resort: Terrance Williams, Austin Miles Avoid: Dallas defense Redskins (vs. Cowboys), noon Sunday The Cowboys’ defense is equally pathetic. Kirk Cousins should be able to have some success in this game. Solid Play: Kirk Cousins, Alfred Morris, Pierre Garcon Worth a look: Logan Paulsen, Kai Forbath Last Resort: Santana Moss Avoid: Washington defense Lions (vs. Giants), 3:05 p.m. Sunday It is no surprise that the Lions are doing their typical December dive, but the Giants are phoning it in. The Lions still are playing for a division title, and they should roll in this game.

Irish play considers the might-have-been

LakeCountySuburbanLife.com • Thursday, December 19, 2013

By TOM WITOM editorial@lakecountysuburbanlife.com GLENCOE – “Port Authority,” a 2001 play by Conor McPhereson making its Midwest premiere at Writers Theatre, provides a thoughtful, bittersweet and often lyrical look at three Irishmen ruminating on choices they made – or wished they had. The trio, who perform the one-hour 45-minute play without intermission on an empty stage except for three stools, alternate with one another telling their life story. Kevin (Rob Fenton), the youngest of the lot, recounts his move from the family nest to a Dublin flat he shares with Davie, Speedy and Clare. He barely tolerates the two lads but is drawn to Clare even though she already has a boyfriend and is more or less inaccessible. He does a lot of soul-searching about a relationship her initiated with Trish, a flirty barmaid he likes but doesn’t love.

If you go What: “Port Authority” When: Through Feb. 16 Where: Writers Theatre, 664 Vernon Ave., Glencoe Tickets: $35-$70 Show information: 847-242-6000 or www.writerstheatre.org The second character, Dermot (John Hoogenakker), is a middle-aged loser, a booze hound and dedicated lech who has somehow landed a dream job in middle management for which he is ill-suited and totally unqualified. In the process, he turns from his devoted wife despite her constant support. Joe (Patrick Clear), the senior citizen in the group, is a widower who now walks with a cane and lives in a retirement home run by nuns. A lifelong Catholic, his receipt of a mysterious gift brings back a flood of memories but sparks curiosity

among his fellow residents. Joe, who has two grown children, lost Liz, his cherished wife of many years, to illness. “Thinking about regrets and worry is a fruitless endeavor. Give up on them because they won’t help,” Joe tells a friend as he recalls an encounter with a neighbor’s wife that inflamed his heart. Though his moral code kept him from betraying Liz, Joe experienced guilt knowing how God has read his inner thoughts. Photo provided With their rich Irish accents and outgoing person- The cast of “Port Authority” at Writers Theatre features Rob Fenton alities, Fenton, Hoognakker (from left), John Hoogenakker and Patrick Clear. and Clear are all in fine form, making their respective characters come alive. And director William Brown makes efficient use of the intimate theater (the company’s second stage in the small performance space at the back of Books on Vernon), having his cast occasionally wander about the room rather than remain tethered to the tiny, bare stage.
