GRAYSLAKE HISTORY & STATE BICENTENNIAL

Photos courtesy of the Grayslake Historical Society

T

he Grayslake Historical Society and the village’s Heritage Center and Museum work together each year to bring an aspect of local history to those who visit the lovely park across the street from the Grayslake Village Hall. Beginning this summer, the partners will bring the public a weatherproof exhibit called “From Statehood to Center Street: Grayslake & Illinois History” which will likely be on display until mid to late-2019, said Michelle Poe, interim director of the Grayslake Heritage Center and Museum, and Charlotte Renehan, president of the Grayslake Historical Society. The five-panel exhibit details how the northern portion of Illinois, from the southern edge of Lake Michigan northward, was not originally part of Illinois. Those 8,000 square miles were slated to become part of Wisconsin instead. But access to Lake Michigan was deemed extremely important, so the state line was moved northward in 1818, setting up all of Lake and

12

Cook counties (and 12 others) to become part of Illinois. It also gives information about the arrival of William M. Gray to Illinois during the 1830s; his homesteading of land along the lake that would eventually be dubbed with his name; and then the incorporation of the growing community nearby in 1895. State parks, state capitols and the Sears Tower landmark in Chicago are then covered, alongside corresponding information and photos of Grayslake’s historic commercial highlights like the Grayslake Gelatin Factory, the Wisconsin Condensed Milk Company and the first village hall. Additional panels cover tragedies throughout the state like the Great Chicago Fire in 1871, a huge mine fire in 1909 and changes in the flow of the Mississippi River, which altered the location of the state capital; as well as local disasters like fires at the Wilbur Lumber Company, deaths at a village lift station and

major floods in 1938 and 2017. The last two panels cover notable state and Grayslake buildings and icons/symbols, as well as latter day development that brought interstate highways to Illinois and made Grayslake much more accessible to Chicagoans and those living in other suburbs. Exhibit viewers will notice that Grayslake and Illinois histories often paralleled. For instance, in the spring of 1881, deforestation along the Mississippi River had dire consequences for Illinois’ first capital city, Kaskaskia. The lack of trees weakened the river banks and, after a large rainfall, the river altered its course. Water surrounded Kaskaskia, flooding much of the city and turning what remained into an island. Grayslake as also experienced major flooding. In 1938, heavy rainfalls filled low lying areas with water and caused Grays Lake to overflow its banks. The water was so deep that residents could fish for carp on Center Street. Another parallel can be seen with one of

Illinois’ greatest tragedies that happened in 1909 at the St. Paul Mine Company in Cherry, Illinois. A kerosene lamp ignited a nearby hay cart, causing a major fire that filled the tunnels below with smoke and fire. The first wave of rescuers lost their lives. Of the 480 workers present, 259 died. Grayslake never had a mining disaster, but four public works employees perished in 1974. The men, friends who regularly ate breakfast together before work, tried to help each other escape the village lift station but were overcome by toxic fumes. A plaque at village hall honors their memory. “We want the public to think about Illinois’ Bicentennial this year, so there was no question about what our annual outdoor exhibit would cover,” Renehan said. “The Heritage Center put together the state part of the exhibit and the Historical Society handled the Grayslake history.” “I expect that people will zero in on the disasters panel, because that is what people generally do,” she added. “But I hope that they will now understand the role that Grayslake played in the development of the whole state of Illinois.” “All of us in Illinois are part of one big community and we also want everyone to see this and understand how Illinois’ various treaties and laws have impacted Grayslake throughout its history,” Poe added. If you are interested in learning more about the rich history of Grayslake, visit the Grayslake Heritage Center, a joint effort of the Grayslake Historical Society and the Village of Grayslake, at 164 Hawley St. The Heritage Center is open from noon to 7 p.m., Wednesday and from noon to 4 p.m., Thursday through Sunday. It is also open by appointment and during major downtown Grayslake events. Good will donations are gratefully accepted.

PUBLIC SAFETY

T

he Grayslake-Hainesville Police Department and the Grayslake Fire Protection District, led by Chief Phil Perlini and Chief John Christian, respectively, ably serve the Grayslake community, day in and day out – dealing with whatever emergencies and issues come their way. POLICE The Grayslake-Hainesville Police Department has 31 full-time sworn officers, 11 part-time sworn officers and two full-time community service officers. The agency recently hired a new full-time officer to replace an officer who retired in December 2017 after serving the community for 29 years. The new officer is currently attending the police academy in Decatur, Illinois, and will receive 520 hours of training over a 14week time span. The department’s management team is also receiving ongoing training. Department sergeants and assistant watch commanders are undergoing John Maxwell Leadership Training under the tutelage of Marvin Bembry, teaching them tactics of servant leadership which will help them to stand out in their community, careers and daily lives by making a positive impact on the lives of other people.

Grayslake also continues to collaborate with other Lake County policing bodies including Mundelein, Libertyville, Gurnee and Round Lake Park in an effort to curb prescription drug abuse which often leads to opiate addiction, according to Perlini. “We got in on the ground floor of this effort, working alongside the Lake County Opiate Task Force,” he said. “We carry Narcan, the opiate overdose antidote, in all of our police cars now and have brought back a number of overdose victims over the years.” But the effort does not end there. Anyone who feels that they have a drug addiction problem and decide that they want help can walk into the Grayslake Police Department, 10 S. Seymour Ave., or approach an officer and ask for help. Residents can assist with preventing unwanted drug use by disposing of their unused prescription drugs and old syringes in an approved container in the police department’s lobby. These containers are available to the public 24 hours a day. By taking these steps, residents can help prevent potential harm/overdoses by those who may want to improperly use or experiment with prescription drugs. When it comes to community interaction, the Grayslake-Hainesville Police Department is

a stand-out. Officer Amy Guzman, the school resource officer at Grayslake North High School, is once again coordinating the department’s participation in the Special Olympics Torch Run, held each June. The event covers about three miles of Route 83 roadway within Grayslake and many members of the Department participate by providing water to runners, guarding intersections and even running themselves. The other program of which Perlini is particularly proud is the department’s Shop with A Cop program that helps between 30 and 40 local children each year. Local businesses and residents support the program, which is run entirely on donations and involves a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus, a Christmas movie, treats and then a shopping outing with a police officer. The December event annually involves between 15 and 20 Grayslake police officers, supplemented by additional volunteers from the College of Lake County police force, the Lake County Forest Preserve Police and additional officers from Round Lake Beach, Lindenhurst and Glenview.

responded to over 4,300 calls for help during 2017 and are continually getting additional equipment and specialized training to further serve residents of the district, according to Christian. A new fire engine and a new ambulance will be delivered this year to replace aging pieces that have long been in service in the six-municipality Fire Protection District. “Our focus always is to reduce risk to the district’s community by increasing fire prevention inspections, developing new strategies for dealing with hazards and keeping a close eye on how we are responding to situations,” Christian said. “We also continue to advocate for the installation of fire sprinklers in any new construction.” Research has shown that home fires become deadly in as few as three minutes. Fires today seem to burn faster and kill quicker, because the contents of modern homes can burn faster and more intensely. The installation of sprinkler systems can reduce these risks and minimize property loss. Because of the large number of lakes in the district, firefighters need more diverse training than those in communities with less water. For instance, Grayslake has firefighters that are specialists who are also certified public safety divers, trained to execute rescue and recovery efforts in both water and on ice. They are part of the Lake County Water Rescue Team that handles calls from Lake Michigan, west into McHenry County. “We have many bodies of water in Grayslake and in Lake County, so we need highly-trained divers available year-round,” Christian said. “All fire district personnel are trained to an operation level but we also have technicians available in the county who are trained to operate countyowned sonar equipment to do both side scans and sector scans of our lakes. Recreational boating in Lake County is continually increasing so we need to be fully prepared with the proper equipment and personnel to respond to emergencies on our lakes.” Christian estimated that 70 percent of their annual calls are emergency medical service-related and the other 30 percent are comprised of fires, technical rescues, hazardous materials calls and other issues. “We continually strive to provide the best service we can in a constantly changing environment,” he said.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

T

he old adage about “build it and they will come” certainly seems to apply to Grayslake these days. The village, as part of a multi-year downtown improvement plans, has been making streetscape improvements and adding parking to increase the community’s appeal to businesses of all kinds. In addition, downtown Grayslake is increasingly becoming a destination for those looking for fine dining and shopping in a picturesque community, according to Brett Kryska, assistant village manager. For instance, the Light the Lamp microbrewery, which came to the village in 2013, has moved to a new downtown Grayslake location – 2 S. Lake Street – in order to produce more beer and also offer food. They revitalized the long-vacant Cupola Building, which was built in the early 1900s, and moved their operations there in June 2018. Another business for beer aficionados – Beer Bazaar – which sells craft beers from around the world and offers tasting events – is considering moving from their current location in Hainesville to a former doctor’s office at 107 Center St. in Grayslake. They are currently working on a new façade design and are also planning to renovate the building’s interior and make further improvements to the structure near the alley in the rear, Kryska noted. “That building has not been improved for decades and it has been empty for awhile,” he said. Elsewhere in Grayslake, the village is using a $1.4 million federal grant to resurface Lake Street from Center Street to Route 83. They will also add curbs and gutters along the stretch of Lake Street from Washington Street to Route 83. Private improvements also abound. A private investor has spent $6 million to renovate and redevelop the Center Street shopping center, which once housed the Piggly Wiggly grocery store and later the Farmer’s Market grocery. Butera is now the anchor tenant and the entire center has a new façade and architectural look that is more in line with village architectural standards.

On the southwest corner of Washington Street and Atkinson Road, the Northern Lakes Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center is under construction and is expected to open in late 2018, and the construction of a Circle K convenience store, gas station and car wash has been approved for the corner of Route 83 and Lake Street. The village is also working on design plans

with the Dollar Tree discount chain for the construction of a new store next to the Chase Bank and Advanced Auto Parts store at the intersection of Route 120 and Atkinson Road. Also at that intersection, Grayslake’s only new car dealership – originally known as Rockenbach Chevrolet, then Rock Chevrolet – has been acquired once again and is now known as Flagg Chevrolet.

“We expect Flagg Chevrolet to make a robust contribution to our local economy, similar to the contribution made when it was the Rockenbach dealership,” Kryska said. Grayslake’s industrial sector is also growing. Okabe Company Inc., a Japanese manufacturer of metal fasteners for automotive and marine applications, is completing the construction of its 130,000-square-foot North American headquarters on 21 acres at the northwest corner of the intersection of Peterson and Midlothian Roads. Many of their 50 to 60 full-time employees have already relocated from Vernon Hills and other locations in the region. Kryska said the potential for a large expansion of the new site exists in the future. Residential development is underway across Grayslake, too, attracting more residents who will patronize businesses, pay taxes and enjoy

village services. Cal-Atlantic Homes is nearing completion of its Lake Street Square 84-townhouse community and Icon Development is building 32 semicustom homes of between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet at the Stoney Ridge subdivision, along Rollins Road, just west of Carillon North. Those new residents will enjoy a number of recently installed improvements to Grayslake’s downtown. For instance, the village is in the midst of the final phase of its downtown improvements project. It is currently adding improvements to the alleyway south of Center Street to allow better pedestrian access to Center Street businesses and has also been expanding downtown parking. Last year they added 23 new spaces to the Whitney Street parking lot and constructed a new 47-space parking lot at the northwest corner of Hawley and Slusser Streets.

“As shopper and diner traffic in the downtown area increases, businesses are looking for more parking,” Kryska said. “So the village is actively looking for places to expand convenient parking.” The village is also seeking to expand the downtown area’s green space, and has acquired the old 10-acre gelatin factory site along the railroad tracks northeast of the downtown (which has been vacant for about 30 years). The village has demolished the old factory buildings and performed an environmental clean-up of the site. The historic smokestack will be preserved. Then the site will be improved with a 25-foot-high cardio hill, bike paths, a pavilion with benches, a meandering road providing a connection between the downtown and Central Park, parking and public restrooms. In addition, the expanded Millennium Court Veteran’s Memorial has been built at the southeast corner of Seymour and Center Streets on the site of a former parking lot. The expanded park features grass and hard-scaping, trestles, benches, a gated archway and monument plaques erected to honor the history of Grayslake and also its veterans of war. The village board has also approved a long-range plan for the future which includes adding green spaces, sidewalk streetscaping and alley improvements between Pine Street (on the north), Slusser Street (on the west), north alley (on the south) and the Gelatin property/ businesses along the railroad tracks and north of Center Street (on the east) in the northern portion of the downtown.

EDUCATION

U

pperclassmen from 22 area high schools, including 19 in Lake County and 3 in McHenry County, are able to choose to receive specialized technical and vocational training at the Lake County High Schools Technology Campus in Grayslake, adjacent to the College of Lake County. Founded in 1977, the vocational campus annually provides career technical education to between 1600 and 1800 high school juniors and seniors from the affiliated schools and districts, said Derrick Burress, principal. Once they have completed their high school educations, students who have completed their high school electives at the Technology Campus generally go on to receive further education at the College of Lake County or at a four-year university, Burress said, because most jobs today require post-secondary education or credentialing of some kind and usually continuing education beyond that. Three class sessions are offered each day at the Technology Campus and the session a student attends is determined by their home school which provides transportation to and from the campus at 19525 W. Washington St., Grayslake. “Back in the mid-1970s educators in Lake County realized the need for career education, but they also understood that multiple districts needed to band together to offer those courses because it is hard to run a class at Grayslake North, for instance, when only five students are interested in automotive technology,” Burress said. “But if you have five students interested from multiple different schools, you can run a “consortium-style” class that will be beneficial to the larger community and to the interested students,” he added. So, area districts banded together to build a centrally-located technology campus on land owned by the College of Lake County. Technology campus tuition for students is paid by the home schools and there is minimal cost to

18

the individual student. The expensive equipment necessary to teach these types of courses was paid for through state and federal grants,” Burress said, and the superintendents of all of the participating Districts serve on the Campus’ Board of Control. “All of our sending schools are advocates for our programs and afford students the opportunity to attend any program they may be interested in. We promote our offerings through our Future Quest after school program for eighth graders and by making in-school presentations to sophomores at each high school we serve,” Burress said. Program offerings range from automotive collision repair and automotive service to welding and fabrication; from certified nurse assisting to medical assisting; and from construction skills and management to laser technology. Others are encouraged to explore careers in cosmetology, early childhood education, firefighting, criminal justice and multimedia design. Courses in a total of 18 different career paths are offered and students may choose to explore more than one in the search for their true callings because the high school years are considered the ideal time for that kind of exploration. It is also worth noting that many of the students enrolled in these courses work with members of the public as part of their coursework, providing needed services as a byproduct. For instance, about 60 preschoolers attend the campus’ preschool where students write the lesson plans and engage with the children. Tuition is much less expensive than a standard preschool. Cosmetology students encourage friends and strangers alike to make appointments for manicures, facials and haircuts and colorings so that they can perfect their techniques. Monday through Friday appointments in both the mornings and afternoons are available by calling cosmetology instructor David Marks at (847) 223-CUTS.

Automotive service appointments are also available to the public by calling Automotive Services Instructor Jack Wilson at (847) 543‑6047. Those stopping by the school for service appointments may also take advantage of the student-run delicatessen where food service students plan menus and prepare the offerings. “Our most popular programs are cosmetology and auto services, which attract approximately 200 students per year. Next in popularity are criminal justice and early education with between 130 and 150 students enrolling in those. Most of the other programs attract between 75 and 150 students per year. And since Tech Campus should be an opportunity for all students, we always encourage non-traditional enrollments like girls taking auto services and boys exploring cosmetology,” Burress said. “We encourage all students to explore and dive into any area that interests them. Almost all of our coursework offers dual high school and college credit at the College of Lake County. Many students graduate from high school with three to nine hours of CLC credit and that is particularly valuable since approximately 50 percent of our seniors go on to enroll at CLC in pursuit of an associate degree,” he added. In all of the different subjects, Technology Campus staff members encourage lots of career exploration by bringing knowledgeable speakers into their classrooms, offering several field trips each year and suggesting that students take part in job shadowing, internships and externships. Career fairs at which students can get interview experience are also a staple. And faculty members are constantly being updated on new trends and technology in their various fields by members of the advisory board who are still active day-to-day in their industries. Financial assistance to students who need it to pay special fees or to participate in competitions is regularly offered by the Mother’s Trust Foundation in Lake Forest.

PARK DISTRICT

T

he residents of Grayslake have wonderful, constantly improving recreational facilities and programming at their disposal so that everyone who wishes to do so can stay fit, healthy and engaged. The Grayslake Community Park District recently received the last 35-acre land donation for Alleghany Park. The final acreage will feature 4 soccer fields, two T-ball fields, walking paths, additional parking, a future restroom/concession building and a future playground. “We began working on Alleghany Park in 2004 and the final land donation will complete the 90-acre sports park,” said Kristin Splitt, executive director for the Grayslake Park District. Other recent projects include the installation of a lightning detection/warning system at Alleghany Park, resurfacing of the basketball courts and creation of pickleball courts at Sunrise Park, and replacement of the Cambridge Park playground. “We have 33 parks within our district, so we try to replace at least one playground every year and will continue to finance some smallerscale improvements until the state reinstates its grant program or we find an alternative source of funding,” Splitt said. “I am very pleased with how successful we have been in using district resources.”

The district also operates the Grayslake Golf Course, a scenic and sporty 9-hole par 3 course that’s open to the public. Designed by award winning Martin Design Partnership, the course is only 1,200 yards in length and the hazards, bunker berms and greens combine for a memorable golfing experience. The course can be enjoyed by someone just learning the game or by a seasoned golfer trying to improve his or her iron play. The Grayslake Park District offers an impressive variety of programming and special events all year long, including Pumpkin Fest, the Polar Express train ride, the Taste of Grayslake Family Picnic and Fireworks, an Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Performances in the Park, golf tournaments, a Mother-Son Superhero Dance and a Father-Daughter Dance. This year, the district held its first GO GRAYSLAKE Community Walk as part of a new park district-sponsored initiative designed to increase community health and wellness. The park district has partnered with the Lake County Health Department on its county-wide GO Lake County initiative to improve community health. The mission of GO GRAYSLAKE is to encourage everyone who lives, works nd plays in Grayslake to get moving for 30 minutes every day.

“Whether it is the pitter patter of tap shoes in the Expressions Dance Studio or preschool students playing together in the I Love Learning Preschool classrooms, the Recreation Center is always buzzing with activity,” Splitt said. The district offers programming for a variety of ages, including parent and tot music classes, little league soccer, youth basketball leagues, girls softball, adult fitness classes, adult recreation classes and trips for adults and seniors. The day trip program for adults and seniors is very popular, Splitt noted. Groups regularly take trips to plays, museums, restaurants and casinos. The district provides transportation and coordinates trip details, so all participants have to do is show up and enjoy the day. Occasionally, groups travel to professional baseball games, take boat tours and visit historic landmarks. The park district offers a wide range of recreational programs and activities year-round. In the cooler months, the district hosts a variety of open gyms at the Recreation Center. With everything from basketball to parent & tot playtime, senior walking club to badminton, there’s an open gym activity for all ages and interests.

HEALTH CARE

rayslake and surrounding communities are fortunate to have superlative health care opportunities within and just outside of the village. NORTHWESTERN MEDICINE GRAYSLAKE OUTPATIENT CENTER The Northwestern Medicine Grayslake Outpatient Center is a godsend to people living and working in Grayslake and neighboring communities who need to be seen by a physician, receive treatment, therapy or a diagnosis or who have an emergency arise. Medical attention is only a short drive away. The 275,000-square-foot “hospital without in-patient space” at 1475 E. Belvidere Rd. has been growing and expanding steadily since it first opened in 2004, according to Paul Williams, director of operations and administrator for Northwestern Medicine Grayslake. The facility features a free-standing emergency department that accepts ambulances; physician offices; outpatient cardiology testing; a fullyfunctional outpatient laboratory; rehabilitation services including audiology testing and physical, occupational and speech therapies; an ambulatory surgery center; a comprehensive cancer center that offers radiation therapy and chemotherapy infusion treatments; and

26

a full radiology center offering MRIs, CT scans, diagnostic radiology, ultrasound, digital mammography and much more. The ambulatory surgery center features four operating suites with the same state-of-the-art technology seen at Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital. There are also three pre- and post-operative rooms, six recovery bays and an eight-bed observation area, as well as two private consultation rooms. In 2017 the Northwestern Medicine Grayslake facility also opened a multi-specialty clinic in the 76,000-square-foot Pavilion C building that is now “home” to physicians representing over 20 different specialties ranging from endocrinology to cardiology, pulmonology, orthopedics, vision care, neurosciences, oncology, internal medicine and family medicine. The Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago

also maintains a pediatrics practice in the building. This is also the location of the physical, occupational and speech pathology services. Northwestern Medicine is also in the process of expanding the Grayslake facility’s cancer center to meet a growing need. They are adding two private infusion bays and four semi-private infusion bays, bringing the total to 14 infusion bays (four of which are private), Williams said. The facility’s café, which overlooks the healing garden, has also been recently expanded and modernized. It now has additional seating and new menu items. “Establishing this facility northwest of Lake Forest Hospital was an incredibly smart move back in 2004. It makes access to Northwestern Medicine care so much easier for our patients who don’t want to routinely travel to Lake Forest for care. Northwestern Medicine has

an incredible asset here in Grayslake which continues to grow,” Williams said. In addition, the physicians and staff members of Northwestern Medicine Grayslake reach out to community residents through their annual Children’s and Families’ Health and Safety Fair, held each June, and through a variety of support groups hosted on the campus. ADVOCATE CONDELL MEDICAL CENTER Advocate Condell Medical Center, located just eight miles from Grayslake, has been providing high-quality care to residents in the north suburbs for 89 years, is part of the largest health care provider and is the only Level I trauma center in Lake County. They offer a convenient location at 1170 E. Belvidere Road in Grayslake offering physical and occupational therapy, a mammography center and physician offices. In addition, the Advocate Children’s Hospital Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is proud to partner with Avon Center School from Community Consolidated School District 46 to provide physicals and immunizations to students and presentations to parents. Advocate Condell is a nonprofit, acute care hospital offering a full spectrum of medical services, including: • Advocate Heart Institute providing extensive cardiac care and Lake County’s most comprehensive cardiovascular program.

• A wide range of orthopedic services from diagnostics to treatment and rehabilitation. • State-of-the-art neurosurgical technologies. • Full range of women’s services. • Birthing Center – most deliveries of any Lake County hospital. • Comprehensive cancer care. • Home health services. • Advocate Sleep Center in Gurnee. • Hospital-based wound care center. • Only Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner in Lake County to provide 24/7 care and support for victims of sexual abuse.

nimals play an important part in the lives of most communities, but particularly in suburban and semirural areas like Grayslake. So, medical and even day care facilities for those furry family members play an integral part in the life of the community. BEST FRIENDS ANIMAL HOSPITAL Best Friends Animal Hospital and its general practice veterinary staff have been caring for area cats, dogs and other small animals since 1997 when Dr. Donna Rauch and Dr. Roberta Scarbeck built an animal hospital at 1203 N. Illinois Route 83. Both are graduates of the University of Illinois’ School of Veterinary Medicine. “We currently care for the animals of between 3,000 and 4,000 area families, handling regular check-ups and inoculations, emergencies like wounds and dogs who have eaten something stupid, diagnostics involving cytology and biopsies, and even animal dentistry,” Dr. Rausch said. They focus their energies on being an animal hospital, so they do not board animals unless they are recovering from surgery or an illness. Best Friends also cares for injured wild animals and for stray domesticated animals. In 2001 Best Friends initiated the “Good Samaritan Animal Relief Fund” to pay for the care of these homeless animals. Once the domesticated animals are well, they are offered for adoption on the hospital’s website and Facebook pages, as well as through Pet Finders. “I chose to establish my practice in Grayslake because I knew that there were lots of folks here who think very highly of their pets. They

28

see them as an extension of their families and I wanted to practice somewhere where people felt that way,” Dr. Rauch said. For more information, visit www. bestfriendsgrayslakevets.com or phone 847-5482626. CENTRAL BARK DOGGY DAYCARE Doting dog owners who are often absent from their homes for long periods of time are increasingly turning to doggy day care providers these days to entertain and care for their furry friends when they cannot be there. In Grayslake that task has been handled by Kevin and Laura Bloss at their Central Bark Doggy Daycare facility at 256 Commerce Dr. since 2007.

“This is our dream job!’ Kevin said. “We get to hang out and work with dogs every day.” The Blosses began looking for an appropriate facility in 2006 and found one not far from their home. Now that they have been in business for more than a decade, they can no longer imagine doing anything else, Kevin said. They care for dogs of all breeds and sizes, six days a week, usually 70 to 80 per day. They also employ three groomers for both dogs and cats; and offer overnight boarding for dogs who patronize their day care service regularly. The Blosses and their employees separate their day care clients according to size and temperament. Each morning they play “fetch” and encourage them to enjoy Central Bark’s

canine gym and playground equipment. Then, from noon to 2 p.m. each day, the dogs are placed in individual kennels to allow them to rest up for the afternoon’s enthusiastic play in the recreation area. Puppies as young as 12 weeks and even dogs with special dietary needs can be accommodated. Central Bark also has retail space for the sale of pet toys, food and other equipment. For more information, call (847) 548-BARK or visit www. centralbarkusa.com/grayslake. VILLAGE VETERINARY CLINIC A graduate of the University of Illinois’ College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Koryn Swearingen has been caring for dogs, cats and other small animals from her Village Veterinary Clinic at 320 E. Neville Dr. since 2005 when she purchased the clinic from its founder. She first came to the clinic as a relief vet while working full-time as part-owner of the Lincolnshire Animal Hospital. For seven years she owned both facilities. Then, in 2012 Dr. Swearingen decided to commit full-time to Grayslake. Today she has four veterinarians who work for her – Dr. Cindy Marks, Dr. Amanda Johnston, Dr. Joe Armagno

and Dr. Megan Mosier – offering services six days a week. They also have a groomer on staff. “We all care for dogs and cats and Dr. Johnston has a particular interest and expertise in guinea pigs, gerbils and other small specialty animals,” Dr. Swearingen said. “But we do not care for birds or large animals like horses. Nevertheless, we currently have approximately 6,000 active patients.” Village Veterinary Clinic concentrates on soft tissue surgeries and dentistry. The clinic refers out patients who need orthopedic surgery. Boarding is limited to cats and to animals recovering from surgery. The clinic also offers the Wisdom Panel/Genetic Health Analysis Screen, a DNA breed test, for those who want to know the breeds that went into creating their loveable “mixed breed” dog. “I try to make my clinic feel like a home. We handle our patients without using excessive restraint or sedation, whenever possible. We even have comfortable dog sofas in all of our exam rooms and use kitchen islands as our exam tables,” Dr. Swearingen said. For more information, call (847) 2235593 or visit www.myvillagevet.com.
