Family man, physician, new deacon Deacon Lendell Richardson enhances diversity at St. Bernardine Catholic Church By TOM HOLMES

Contributing Reporter

s membership at St. Bernardine’s shrinks, many at the congregation believe that permanent Deacon Lendell Richardson is a happy addition to the Harrison St. church to help grow the number and diversity of those sitting in the pews on Sunday. “The fact that he is black, a medical doctor, a university teacher and married to a white Orthodox Christian medical doctor, all contribute to diversity and experience,” said Jim Murray, a longtime member of St. Bernardine’s. Richardson, 55, was appointed to the church at 7246 Harrison St. about a year ago, after serving a church in his home of Oak Park for 11 years and being ordained by Cardinal Francis George at the Archdiocese of Chicago in 2006. The diaconal program he was ordained through had fallen into disuse by the Catholic Church for centuries, even though it was a respected ministry in the early church. In the wake of the Second Vatican Council, however, it was restored as a permanent ministry by Pope Paul VI in 1967. As the number of priests in the U.S. falls—from 57,317 in 1985 to 37,192 in 2016, with nearly 3,500 churches without a priest that year, according to the National Federation of Priests Councils— See RICHARDSON on page 10

Carver Center is open for innovation The Carver Innovation Center officially opened to the public on May 13 as the newest co-working and development space in Forest Park. The Carver Center is an offshoot of the Joseph Business School, the nonprofit educational arm of Living Word Christian Center, which owns the Forest Park Plaza mall. “There’s an infinite amount of opportunities waiting and so we need a center now,” said Bill Winston, pastor of Living Word and founder of the Joseph School, at the grand opening on May 9. “We’re going to take this center and drive things to this center that will create employment opportunities that can lift the burden off some of these poor communities. We can actually bring jobs in there and have it so there’s 100 percent employment for everybody who wants to work.” The center is named after George Washington Carver, the American botanist and inventor famous for promoting consumption and use of the peanut. It aims to offer creators, small businesses and hobbyists creative problem-solving and product development support, as well as access, for a fee, to a 3D Printer; a Universal Laser System, which allows people to cut and design wood, stone, glass and more; and a vinyl cutter, ac-

Studio 8 proposes Circle Ave. flea market Officials to revisit idea May 29 By ROBERT J. LIFKA Contributing Reporter

A monthly flea market could be coming to Forest Park if village officials can scratch the itch of a local businessman. Brian Shamhart of Studio 8, a vintage resale/interior design shop that relocated to Madison Street from Oak Park in February, proposed at the May 14 village council meeting that a monthly flea market be held in the village parking lot at Madison and Circle Avenue. Although village officials raised numerous concerns, the proposal received enough support for Mayor Anthony Calderone to instruct village staff members to meet with Shamhart to answer questions and address concerns that were raised so that a revised proposal could be considered at the Tuesday, May 29 village council meeting. “It’s an intriguing idea,” Calderone said. “We’ve got to consider the unintended consequences.” Shamhart and Village Administrator Tim Gillian confirmed that they spoke and are working toward scheduling a meeting. Primary concerns raised by village commissioners included setting a precedent by allowing a private business to hold an event on village-owned property and the impact on village staff and resources. “I’m glad they moved in,” Commissioner Joseph Byrnes said of Studio 8. “If we do this for them, will we have to do it for others?”

SHOP SMALL: Studio 8 owners Brian Shamhart and Melody Kratz want to host a monthly flea market on village property. Byrnes indicated he would be more receptive to the proposal if it were coming from the Chamber of Commerce or had more community participation. “In concept, it’s a great idea,” Commissioner Dan Novak said. “We need staff to vet it.” Novak expressed concerns regarding the impact such an event would have on those living nearby the location and those who regularly park in that lot. “Conceptually, it’s a good idea,” Commissioner Tom Mannix said. “There a lot of de-

tails that need to be worked out.” Like Byrnes, he indicated he would view the proposal differently had it come from the Chamber of Commerce instead of from a private business. He also cited potential loss of revenue from parking fees; whether a fee would be charged to have a booth or table at the flea market; and how much time staff members and the police would need to devote. “It has potential,” Commissioner Rachell Entler said. “There are a lot of unanswered questions.”

After the meeting, Shamhart addressed one of the concerns. “This really wouldn’t be a Studio 8 thing,” he said. “We’re not doing this just for our own benefit. We would be open to and would even push for a partnership with the village or the chamber.” In his proposal, Shamhart said he was targeting the third Sunday of each month from June to October but said he would be flexible regarding dates. He considered multiple locations, including public and private, before choosing the municipal lot at Circle and Madison. “If it’s going to work, that where it’s got to be,” Shamhart said, noting he has three years of experience managing similar but smaller events on private property at Studio 8’s previous location in Oak Park. He made the proposal to the village “three or four weeks ago,” he noted, but did not receive a response, adding that he was surprised to learn the proposal was on the agenda for Monday’s meeting. Although he attended Monday’s meeting and addressed the village council during the public comment portion of the meeting, he said he was frustrated that village council policy prevented him from responding to questions or commenting on concerns raised during the meeting. Nevertheless, “I think we’re off to a good start,” Shamhart said, admitting the outcome was “not unexpected.” Although he said his original hope to start holding the flea market in June is no longer realistic, he thinks holding the event in August, September and October “would work.”

Outreach meetings planned for Cultural Park proposal National Park Service consultant plans summer events By ROBERT J. LIFKA Contributing Reporter

Forest Park residents will have the opportunity to share their opinions regarding the proposed Cultural Park on village-owned property near the Altenheim Retirement Home at Madison and Van Buren streets during four outreach events this summer. Mayor Anthony Calderone announced at the village council meeting on May 14 that Mike Mencarini of the National Park Service is moving forward with the second phase of his outreach effort after completing the first phase, which was meeting with stakeholder groups in the village. The Park Service in October awarded the village a technical assistance grant from the agency’s Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) branch to help officials create the proposed park for year-round use. The RTCA grant is not a monetary grant. Instead, the park service is providing technical assistance during the federal fiscal year to village officials as they move forward. The federal fiscal year began in October and will end in September. Mencarini said the first phase, which concluded in April,

involved meetings with “approximately 13 community groups or local government offices” to discuss the proposal and ask if they had any initial feedback related to the opportunities available at the site or any concerns they might have. He said the next phase would consist of four community outreach events that will be open to the public, two each at the Forest Park Public Library and the Park District of Forest Park. The events at the library would be held on weekday evenings and those at the park district would be weekend daytime events. Mencarini said he is working with officials from the library and the park district regarding scheduling but is hoping to hold events two weeks apart, alternating between sites. Outreach events would start in June and conclude in August. “During these events I plan to have a table with several maps and photos of the current site as well as two posters,” Mencarini explained. “One poster will list common park/ recreation amenities where people can indicate if they favor that amenity being incorporated into the proposal or not and the other poster people can write down comments they have for opportunities/concerns related to the proposal.” He said previously that his focus would be on the outdoor recreation and park/green space opportunities that are as-

sociated with the cultural park proposal, noting that proposals discussed previously have included a music venue. Calderone said village officials would publicize dates of the events as they are scheduled. Mencarini said his goal is to present an overview of the outreach and community feedback in September, which is the end of the park service’s fiscal year. The village purchased the property for $3.6 million in 2001, averting a sale to a private developer whose plans were to build townhomes. The property consists of 11 acres north and south of Altenheim and includes a chapel and other outbuildings, all of which are empty. At one point the West Cook YMCA in Oak Park targeted the site for a new facility but negotiations fell through. Fenwick Hugh School in Oak Park also inquired about purchasing the property for a football field and other athletic fields. Forest Park resident Ralph DiFebo has spearheaded the effort to create a cultural park on the site, making presentations to groups around the village in 2015 and 2016, concluding with a presentation to the village council in August 2016. In December 2016, the village council created an ad hoc committee that presented a formal proposal in September 2017.

Standing up (way up): for Special Olympics Illinois Officers will be on top of 7200 Circle Ave. from 5 a.m. to noon, May 18

By NONA TEPPER Staff Reporter

Forest Park police hope to raise awareness by standing on the roof of Dunkin’ Donuts on May 18, holding their fourth annual “Cop on a Rooftop” fundraiser for Special Olympics Illinois. “Rain, shine, anything but lightning. I don’t think we’re supposed to go up in a thunderstorm,” joked Detective Mike O’Connor, who also serves as the department’s crime-free multi-housing officer. He said police hope to raise $5,000 this year — up from the $4,700 they raised in 2016, topping all the years they’ve been involved in the program — through donations, and the sale of T-shirts and hats for $15, lapel pins for $5, and coffee mugs that will be priced between $5 and $10. Police will be inside and on top of 7200 Circle Ave. from 5 a.m. to noon this Friday. Forest Park officers join nearly 300 departments that will be staking out Dunkin’ Donuts, including Oak Park, Chicago, and Melrose Park. Every guest who donates will receive a coupon for a free donut at Dunkin’ Donuts, and those who donate more than $100 will be sent paperwork from Special Olympics Illinois to take a tax

COPPERS ON THE ROOF: Forest Park officers aren’t afraid of heights-or plugging a good cause. refund. In honor of the event, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate $15,000 for the Law Enforcement Torch Run, which winds through the state in 28 legs, ending in Springfield, where the Special Olympics are held. O’Connor said

Forest Park officers have participated in the Torch Run three times. “People think, ‘I don’t have a lot of money to donate,’ but whatever change you’ve got in your cupholder, bring that; that’s perfect,” O’Connor said.

So far six officers have signed up for Cop on a Rooftop. O’Connor said he hopes to get at least one more officer involved, so Forest Park police can recreate the scene from last year, when seven police clustered on the roof and volunteers strolled up and down Harlem Avenue waving signs at motorists. Cop on a Rooftop is one of several fundraisers Forest Park police have been involved in this year. In February, they participated in the annual Polar Plunge with other first responders and raised more than $1,500. In September, officers plan to participate in a “plane pull” at O’Hare International Airport, competing other groups to see which can pull an airplane the farthest. O’Connor said police are also still figuring out the details of a fourth fundraiser where they will set up donation jugs for Special Olympics Illinois at local businesses. All of the group’s fundraisers benefit the special needs advocacy organization. “One of the founding roles of the police department, of any police department, is the police are the public and the public is the police, so it’s one for the same,” O’Connor said, noting that Cop on a Rooftop is a good way to remind everyone of this relationship.

‘Blues For Mister Charlie’ burns with intensity

J

By DOUG DEUCHLER Theater Critic

ames Baldwin, mid-century AfricanAmerican novelist and essayist, wrote only two plays. Blues for Mister Charlie is one of them. We are fortunate that the intrepid new Echo Theater Collective has mounted a production in our community at Madison Street Theater, 1010 Madison. This seldom-revived 1964 drama still burns intensely. The production is shocking — perhaps in some ways more now than 54 years ago with its nonstop use of the “n-word” and its outspoken racist banter. The plot depicts the attitudes of the early ’60s when racist bigotry was commonly believed to be strictly a phenomenon of the Deep South.

professionals and hard-working newcomers, have mounted a passionate production of a loosely structured play that was clearly ahead of its time in its harsh depiction of racist oppression. Baldwin wrote his novelistic script in 1963 during a horrific time — when President John F. Kennedy was killed, Civil Rights

worker Medgar Evers was murdered, and eight black girls died when their Montgomery, Alabama church was dynamited. Although it occurred 9 years earlier, the playwright also wanted to present his take on the 1955 murder of Emmett Till, a 14-yearold Chicagoan visiting family in Mississippi when he was brutally murdered for

Fifth-grader named winner of free Ed’s Way bike James Walker has made honor roll every year since third grade By NONA TEPPER Staff Reporter

On May 4, James Walker was named the surprise winner of a free bike from Ed’s Way Food Mart, after he was called out for completing the annual Book-It reading challenge. “He’s been on honor roll since he was in third grade; he’s an A average student,” said mother Renea Walker. This is the 14th year that Ed’s Way, 946 Beloit Ave., has given a bike to a FieldStevenson student who completed the Book-It reading program, which is sponsored by Pizza Hut and allows teachers to set monthly reading goals for their classrooms. Students who complete the program are awarded a free pizza from the fast-food chain. But in Forest Park, they’re also awarded a free bike and a picture on Ed’s Way’s hallowed walls. Walker, 11, and his mom visited Walmart on May 12, where he picked out a 24-inch, red, Next brand mountain bike valued at $100. “He was fascinated by the fact that he can change speeds, and fascinated with

how it’s made,” Renea Walker said. The two turned in their coupon for the free bike on May 14, and the bike should be delivered sometime this week. Walker said her son outgrew his current bike two years ago, after his knees started hitting the handlebars while he peddled, and he hasn’t been able to ride since. When the two vis- James Walker ited Walmart, she said, it took James a few tries to remember how to ride but, after circling the store a few times, he’s ready to roll. Walker said her fifth-grader has already made plans to go downtown and ride along the Lake Shore Path. “I need to go ahead and get a new bike now so we can ride together,” she said. Mike Nutley, co-owner of Ed’s Way, she noted, has already showed her son where his picture will be posted on the wall of the grocery store, which she estimates the family visits about three times a week. “I

already knew about Ed’s Way before we even moved to Forest Park,” Walker said, adding that the family has lived in town for eight years. Although she knows all the employees, her favorite cashier is Karen because they share the same birthday. “It’s very friendly and the prices are great; they’re just nice people,” Walker said. “You’re supposed to support your community, and they pour back into our community.” Nutley said he’s happy to support a program that encourages children to read. “We’ve got a lot of good kids in this neighborhood, and they deserve something nice,” he said. Formerly named White Way Foods, Ed’s Way opened in 1991. It was used as a set during the filming of Sinister 2, a 2015 horror that grossed $54.1 million at the box office. CONTACT: ntepper@wjinc.com

allegedly offending a white woman grocery storekeeper. His white attackers went free. The atrocity was one of the sparks that ignited the Civil Rights Movement. Trent Williams is full of energy as Richard, a young man somewhat older than Emmett Till. This pastor’s son had been up north for a few years where he became a drug addict. Now back home and “clean,” he seethes with rebelliousness. He vows never to act in a subservient way to anyone. But as a black young man, his behavior is interpreted as oversexed, cocky, and dangerous. Chris Bruzzini solidly portrays the poor, dull-witted racist store owner, Lyle Britten. He is both frightening and sad. Bruzzini gives us a nicely shaded Britten, with a disturbing amount of human decency. Lyle Britten desperately needs power over anyone he sees as lesser, including his wife. We know from scene one that Richard is dead and that Lyle has murdered him, so the plot holds few surprises. Many performances are outstanding, such as Richard’s love interest, played by Jasmyne McDonald and his concerned grandmother, portrayed by Sydney Paige Milligan. P.J. Destin is Rev. Meridian Henry. Cynthia Martz is the white grocery store clerk married to bigoted Lyle Britten. Edward Voci is credible and intelligent as a progressive white newspaper editor, the one man with genuine friends on the black side of town. He conveys a touching decency. “Mister Charlie” was a phrase once used by African Americans to refer to white folks. So the title suggests a sad song for the white man’s moral crisis. There are clear links to our current political climate though some of the once eye-opening message now sound preachy. Though at over 3½ hours, this three-act show is too slowly paced, it is still a solid production and we are fortunate to have the Echo Theater Collective revive an important, seldom-seen work in our community.

Five cars burglarized around village At some point between 12 a.m. and 8 a.m. on May 11, someone broke into a Dodge Ram and BMW parked on the 800 block of Beloit, according to a police report. A wallet containing a Forest Park National Bank debit card, Capital One credit card, PNC credit card, insurance card and driver’s license were taken from the Dodge Ram and a pair of sunglasses valued at $75 from the BMW. The man told police he left his doors unlocked overnight. After calling Capital One, the victim discovered the thief tried to use the card three times in Chicago. Between 8:30 p.m. on May 10 and 8:40 a.m. on May 11, someone broke into a Cadillac parked on the 1100 block of Lathrop, and took $15 cash, a $1,200 money order and a bottle of alcohol. The owner told police her dog was barking around 1 a.m. on May 11, but she assumed he just wanted to go out again. She said the Cadillac’s doors were unlocked. Police noticed an empty pill bottle in the parking lot next to the Cadillac. The pill bottle was labeled with the name of a neighbor who owns a Hyundai Tucson, which was also unlocked and had $20 cash missing from it. A Nissan parked next to the Hyundai had change stolen from it. Between 8 p.m. on May 10 and 10 a.m. on May 11, someone broke into a Buick parked on the 800 block of Ferdinand and took $10 cash, a Chase Freedom credit card and possibly two sets of keys.

Knife-wielder threatens CTA employees Police arrived at the Forest Park Blue Line station, 711 Desplaines Ave., around 2:30 a.m. on May 13 and found CTA employees holding a man down. An employee reportedly told the man he had to exit the train and pay his fare again, per CTA policy. The man became upset, but exited the train and walked down the steps and hung out in the waiting area. The employee told the man he had to exit the waiting area and pay. The man said he needed to charge his phone and would pay once his phone was on. When the employee turned around, the man ran back up to the platform. The employee followed him and told him again to leave. The man said he didn’t have any money because he was robbed earlier in the day, in the ensuing argument, he pushed the employee. CTA K-9 officers arrived to assist, and the man reached into his pants as if he had a weapon. Officials held him to the ground, and discovered a pocketknife tucked into his waist band. He was charged with battery.

Man rides off with woman’s bike A woman’s bike, valued at roughly $500, was stolen about 1 p.m. from the 900 block

of Marengo Avenue on May 8. Police arrived on the scene, and spotted a man riding a bike that matched the caller’s description — a blue mountain bike. He parked it against REM employment agency, 7239 W. Roosevelt Road. Police took a picture of the bike and sent it to the victim, who positively identified it as her own. Officers escorted the Chicago man from REM and transported him to the station. At the station, the man threatened the officers, telling them to take off their tasers and come into his holding cell so he could “beat the [expletive] out of you” and more. He kicked and punched the door and, when officers told him that if it were damaged it would be a felony, he replied, “I don’t give no [expletive]” and held up the middle finger. He was charged with theft.

Lawn equipment lifted from garage At some point between 5:30 a.m. on May 11 and 12:30 p.m. on May 13, someone broke into a garage on the 1000 block of Lathrop, and took a leap blower valued at $129 and trimmer valued at $100. Police noticed pry marks on the side door of the garage.

McDonald’s disturbance leads to arrest Police arrived at McDonald’s around 4:44 p.m. on May 12, responding to a call that someone was disturbing patrons. When they arrived, officers noticed a man who matched the description of the offender walking quickly toward the Green Line. He told police he left 420 Desplaines Ave. because “they on some [expletive].” A name check revealed he had an active warrant out in Chicago for criminal trespass to property. He was eventually transported to the Chicago Police Department. These items were obtained from police reports filed by the Forest Park Police Department, May 7-13, and represent a portion of the incidents to which police responded. Unless otherwise indicated, anybody named in these reports has only been charged with a crime. These cases have not been adjudicated.

CROP WALK: Proviso students fight hunger at the annual CROP Walk between Oak Park and Austin on May 6.

L E T T E R S

Proviso students raised $700 to fight hunger during May 6 CROP Walk I want the Maywood, and larger Proviso Township, communities to know that on May 6, during the CROP Hunger Walk, 23 Proviso East seniors, two of their teachers, Ms. McEllistrim and Ms. Murray, and two students from Proviso West raised $700. The fundraiser to feed hungry people, now in its 35th year, started at Pilgrim United Church of Christ on Lake St. in Oak Park. The almost 300 walkers proceeded east and into the Austin Neighborhood of Chicago and then back into Oak Park — a total of five miles. “When I first heard about the hunger walk,” said McEllistrim, “I thought it would be a great way for some of my students to earn some community service hours. I had expected maybe five or six students to sign up. But I had encouraged my students to recruit their friend to come too because it’s more fun if you do it in a group. I never expected that 25 students would show up.” Proviso East Senior Sebastian Zaragoza said he participated in the walk at first because he needed to earn some com-

munity service hours, but as he and his friends did the walk it was nice to know that they were helping people. Likewise, Jamari Hawkins said he liked doing the walk because some of the money he raised was going toward food pantries in his own community. The agencies to which Jamari was referring include The First Baptist Church of Melrose Park Food Pantry, Housing Forward, Proviso Food Pantry, Quinn Center of Saint Eulalia Hunger Ministries and Vision of Restoration Food Pantry. McEllistrim concluded, “As we walked as a group I think the student really got why people were walking and they learned something about would hunger. My goal for next year will be to recruit more students and to raise more money for hunger.” At the time this letter was sent, we’ve received over $70,000 and the contributions are still coming in. That means that our local pantries will receive a total of about $20,000 as they did last year.

D209 teachers speak out against dress code change

Union members said they weren’t consulted prior to board vote By MICHAEL ROMAIN

PUSHING BACK: Maggie Riley, president of the teachers union, speaks against the district’s dress code policy change during a regular school board meeting on May 8.

Staff Reporter

Teachers at Proviso Township High Schools District 209 are pushing back against the school board’s move to get rid of the district’s uniform policy, arguing that the decision will contribute to an atmosphere of insubordination and disorder at the schools — a point, they said, that was proven by a massive water balloon fight at Proviso West High School earlier this month. Starting next school year, students will be allowed to wear regular clothing as long as it doesn’t “disrupt the educational process, interfere with the maintenance of a positive teaching/learning climate, or compromise reasonable standards of health, safety, and decency.” The new dress code policy — which was approved unanimously by the board in April but still needs to be finalized and added to the 2018-19 student handbook— is largely the work of members of the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Board and a group of students who are part of an English class at Proviso East. The students argued that since its implementation in 2014, the uniform policy has been unfairly and unevenly enforced, and has helped to perpetuate “racism, classism and sexism” in the district. Most board members applauded what member Rodney Alexander, a proponent of uniforms, called the students’ “adult-like, board-like work.” “You have to yield to their expressions and their education process and their ability to communicate and put this argument together,” Alexander said. “They’ve pretty much won the argument.” But at a regular meeting on May 8, members of the Proviso Teachers Union didn’t feel the debate was settled. Although most of the teachers who spoke lauded the students’ effort to

Screenshot of May 8 meeting

overturn the uniform policy, they countered with arguments of their own about the policy’s effectiveness. “The uniforms do not promote racism, sexism and classism,” said Scott Hendrickson, a union member and social studies teacher at Proviso West. “They promote the very opposite. … I’ve worn uniforms with people from all races, ages, socioeconomic backgrounds and sexes. Uniforms minimize differences and promote teamwork.” Hendrickson said the union was not consulted about the policy change and the teachers’ view about the proposed change was not adequately considered. “The union is especially concerned that there will be no enforcement of the new dress code and we’ll return to what we had in the past — students wearing belly shirts, spaghetti straps, short shorts,” he said. The new dress code, which would debut next school year, like the current policy, prohibits most of the items Hendrickson stated, but both teachers and students who spoke during public meetings over the last two months complained about enforcement. Maggie Riley, the teachers union president, said the union “believes that altering the uniform policy is still a mistake,” and “one teacher and a handful of students do not speak for the majority of our members.”

Riley added that “this entire year, the dress code has not been enforced,” and argued that the lack of uniform policy enforcement, in addition to the overall lax disciplinary culture throughout the district, may have been a contributing factor in a water balloon fight that took place at West on May 2. “It was so bad that at one point, administration from East and [Proviso Math and Science Academy] was sent over to help,” she said, adding that a maintenance person was hit with “several water balloons” and a “substitute teacher was so scared” that the person hid underneath a staircase. Carissa Gillespie, an English teacher in the district who also has a child attending a D209 school, said during the May 8 meeting that the district should have solicited input from parents and community members through multiple outlets, including email, newsletter and meetings, before deciding on the policy change. “Although I’m proud of the work a small number of our students did to bring about the new dress code,” she said, “I’m not proud that most of our students learn that if you complain, or refuse to comply with the rules, District 209 will change the rules for you.” CONTACT: michael@oakpark.com

Metra to introduce new roundtrip ticket “Round Trip Plus” will be available in late summer By NONA TEPPER Staff Reporter

Metra announced today it will introduce the “Round Trip Plus” pass in late summer, which will offer unlimited rides for 24 hours for the same price as a roundtrip ticket, or $7.50 for those traveling from the River Forest and Oak Park stations to Chicago. Customers will be able to purchase these tickets through the Ventra mobile application. “A lot of people are getting more work from home options, and more working

four days a week for 10 hours, so there’s a lot more flexibility in the workforce and this product was introduced to meet those needs,” said Meg Reile, Metra spokesperson. Round Trip Plus was introduced for riders who travel on more than one Metra line on a given day, riders who wish to make multiple stops along a single Metra line or riders desiring a round-trip ticket. Reile also noted that since Metra will soon eliminate its online ticketing program, this pass will save customers who don’t have the time or ability to purchase tickets from

physical stations money. Riders are charged an additional $5 if they purchase tickets from conductors on the train. Metra announced in early April it was ending its online ticketing program, which allows customers to buy monthly and 10ride tickets via Metra’s website. The last day to purchase a monthly pass from the website will be June 20 and the last day to purchase a 10-ride ticket will be June 30. Metra estimates the end to its online ticketing program will save $144,000 in annual website hosting, maintenance and support costs.

“We understand this change will inconvenience some Metra customers,” Jim Derwinski, CEO and executive director, said in a statement. “However, we are trying to find efficiencies wherever we can, and we still offer several other sales channels, including the convenient Ventra app.” Metra will measure demand of the new day pass for a year, and then decide whether to continue it or not. Its board of directors is still mulling providing discounts to customers who ride outside of peak travel times. CONTACT: ntepper@wjinc.com

RICHARDSON

Deacon brings diversity from page 1 deacons help fill that void and also help churches with priests assist members, like Rev. Stanislaw Kuca, who most at St. Bernardine’s know as “Father Stan.” The number of worshippers at St. Bernardine’s has fallen over the years, and the church closed its school in June 2013, after almost 100 years in operation. Like Catholic priests, deacons are ordained and give sermons or homilies. They serve by assisting with, but not presiding over, the sacrament of the Holy Communion and are engaged in the Ministry of Charity, which means they work to serve the needs of parish members. Unlike priests, permanent deacons can marry, raise families and have jobs outside of the church. Some see Richardson’s marriage as a way to help connect the ordained with ordinary church-goers. “People can identify with him and he with them,” said Anne Stauffer, director of religious education at St. Bernardine’s, adding: “I have experienced Deacon Lendell to be a very caring, sensitive and compassionate person. He reaches out to people on a very human level—he speaks from the heart.” Others see Richardson’s race as an asset. “Because of his African American heritage,

POWER COUPLE: After years of raising children and focusing on their careers, Lendell and Tina found faith. he brings a more inclusive environment of leadership,” said David Meyer, member of St. Bernardine’s, which has mostly white attendees. “His presence as deacon may draw folks from the African American community.” The path didn’t come easy to Richardson. He considered becoming a Catholic priest

when he was a student at St. Rita of Cascia High School in Chicago, but never felt a strong calling. Back then, he more readily saw himself as a husband and father. “I also felt more drawn to medicine as a calling than ordained ministry,” he said. Richardson pursued a career in medicine, graduating from Loyola University of Chi-

cago’s Stritch School of Medicine in 1990 and specializing in internal medicine. There, he must have met his wife Tina Richardson, with both earning the coveted State of Public Health Scholarship. Like Lendell, Tina also graduated from Loyola’s Stritch in 1990 and now works as senior physician in women’s issues at the Cook County Department of Corrections. The two married, had three children together and lived in Oak Park. But the pull toward some kind of ordained ministry remained. “I often felt that God was calling me to more of a ministerial role in the church,” he said. “As I inquired and learned more about diaconal ministry, the more I felt somehow called to serve through this ministry, in addition to service through medicine.” They became more involved in their home parish until they felt ready in 2002 to do the Aspirancy Year of Diaconal Formation, which Richardson described as a year of intense prayer and exposure to all that diaconal ministry entails. This year confirmed to Richardson and his family that he was ready to make the commitment of becoming a deacon. Now, after 12 years of serving as a permanent deacon, family man and physician, Richardson sums up his experience by saying, “Being a deacon and serving the people of God has been a distinct and humbling honor, privilege, and challenge. I am blessed to have heard the call, sought to answer it, and use the gifts which God has freely given me in the service of His people.”

year, the highest honor it bestows. Robert Morse, U.S. News’ chief data strategist, credited the school’s year over year improvement to its increase of seniors who take and pass Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Eighty four percent of PMSA 12th graders took an AP exam last year, and 76 percent of students passed at least one test, according to U.S. News. “Bringing home the Gold is a dream come true for all of us as we are a team that does not rest on our laurels,” Bessie Karvels, principal, said in a statement. “Every day we continue to push forward to ensure our students reach their highest potential.” U.S. News uses a four-step process to determine the “Best High Schools.” The publication teamed with RTI International, a nonprofit social science research firm based in North Carolina, to produce the rankings. The two firms analyze students’ math and reading performance on state tests, graduation rates

and AP test participation and performance. In its assessment of reading and math proficiency, U.S. News factors in the percentage of “economically disadvantaged students — who tend to score lower — enrolled at the schools to identify schools performing much better than statistical expectations, ” according to its website. PMSA’s student body is 47 percent low-income, 94 percent minority, 39 percent male and 61 percent female. The school notched a 70 percent in both math and reading proficiency on U.S. News’ scorecard. The magazine also assessed whether a school’s black, Hispanic or low-income students “performed at or better than the state average for historically [under-served] students.” “I am proud that PMSA once again made the “Best High Schools” list,” Supt. Jesse Rodriguez said in a statement. “This recognition reflects the academic progress that is taking place at D209 and I am proud of our faculty, staff, students, communities, and Board of Education for their continuous support and commitment to transforming our schools.”

D91 unveils new, student-inspired logo Yearbook Studios reimagined a Grant-White 3rd-grader’s idea By NONA TEPPER

Staff Reporter

Forest Park School District 91 now has a new logo designed, in part, by a thirdgrader. D91 school board members unanimously approved a design created by the Forest park-based Yearbook Studios at their meeting on May 10. The design firm re-imagined the new logo from a drawing made by Grant-White Elementary School student Nialiah, whose last name the district has declined to share. “Amazing,” Nialiah said at the meeting. The new design features five hands of various colors reaching toward an apple, with the various skin tones representing D91’s diversity. The five hands are intended to represent the number of schools in the district. Nialiah’s design was named winner in December 2017, after students, staff and community members cast more than 700 votes for her drawing. D91 had solicited design proposals from students across the schools in October, and received 23 ideas. D91 spokeswoman Rebecca Latham, Superintendent Louis Cavallo

Latham said Nialiah’s design will be rolled out over the district’s social media profiles over the coming weeks, and again

OPINION O U R

V I E W

The Roos is real

W

e’ve been cheering the Park District of Forest Park and its dogged efforts to build a new recreation center for a long, long time. Now that we are 10 days away from the opening of the rightly named Roos Recreation Center, our enthusiastic support is unwavering. From its overwhelming success in convincing Forest Parkers to hike their taxes in a long-ago referendum vaguely promising a someday new community center, to its patience and persistence in the face of the real estate market collapse of a decade back in buying the decrepit Roos Cedar Chest factory building at a very smart price, to its sincere efforts to preserve the landmark structure and its wise choice finally to demolish it, the park board and its staff have made one good decision after another. Along the way, the park board made strong connections with state legislators and brought home some $4 million in state and federal funding toward this project. A neat trick in a basically bankrupt state. Now, with May 26 set as its opening, Larry Piekarz, the park’s soon-to-retire executive director, can proudly say the project is coming in on time and some $100,000 under budget. That, too, is some accomplishment. Sitting adjacent to the district’s main park, the new Roos is the most notable accomplishment by this park district since at least its remaking of a run-of-the-mill public pool into the current Aquatic Center. Congratulations and thanks are in order to all involved in this significant achievement.

Marching to East

It was a mutual failing. Forest Park and its elementary schools turned its collective back to Proviso East for decades. And the District 209 Proviso Township high schools did the same. The opening of the Proviso Math and Science Academy in Forest Park a decade ago created a limited connection between the elementary and high school districts. But there has been very little cross-promotion between our elementary and middle school and Proviso East. Until now. We loved seeing the audacious Proviso East Marching Band perform last week for students at Field-Stevenson. It was outreach at its best. Talented, enthused and connected teens modeling the virtues of their high school for Forest Park youngsters considering their next steps beyond middle school. Proviso East is a viable choice for Forest Park’s graduates. And it is ever more viable with new leadership and energy in the venerable First Avenue school, energized and transformational leadership at the district level, and a school board fully focused on education and community after decades of political calculus by a failed school board. The marching band made high school look fun, like a place you can belong and thrive. Good for District 91 for opening its doors to its public high school and to that high school for marching right in.

his year’s Wright Plus housewalk will feature a home that was last on the walk in 1991. Since that time, architect George W. Maher’s Herman Mallen House has undergone quite a transformation. Brian DeVinck, Frank Lloyd Wright Trust research captain for the Mallen House, says that attendees this year can expect to see a

home that is being extensively restored by the current owners and says the home is an interesting reflection of Maher’s work. The home on Euclid Avenue in Oak Park was completed in 1905 for the family of Herman and Ellen Mallen, who lived in the house with their four daughters. Mallen founded a furniture manufacturing business with his father and later bought his father out and ran the firm himself. DeVinck says the company was known for manufacturing parlor furniture and made

furniture for almost every room in the house. Ellen Mallen outlived her husband and lived in the house until 1936. An original garage with living quarters for a chauffeur above lasted only 10 years, and today has been replaced with a singlefamily home across the alley from the current garage. Subsequent owners raised a monkey named Mike in the home’s solarium and reportedly donated the monkey to the Brookfield Zoo when they moved. In the 1950s the

owners modernized the house and installed one of the first private pools in Oak Park in the backyard. A 1982 fire damaged the home, and another fire later in the 1980s also did some damage to a small upstairs corner area of the house. The current owners purchased the home in 2000 and have undertaken extensive interior and exterior restoration efforts.

Architectural history Architect George W. Maher spent much of his childhood in Indiana and came to Chicago as a teen, when he apprenticed for the architecture firm Bauer and Hill. Maher later worked with architect Joseph Silsbee in the 1880s, overlapping for a short period of time with Frank Lloyd Wright. While neither worked for Silsbee for long, DeVinck says both were inspired by Silsbee and his shingle-style home designs. Wright’s own Oak Park home is a shingled residence. Unlike Wright, DeVinck says that Maher never really broke out of the interior compartmentalization typical of the shinglestyled homes. Maher homes shared the sense of grandeur found in East Coast-style shingle homes, and he often incorporated a grand staircase in his designs. Maher opened his own firm in the late 1880s and moved to Kenilworth after he married in 1893. He designed over 40 homes in Kenilworth.

rangement and fireplace mosaic of the Mallen House.

Restoration Maher originally designed the Mallen House as a stucco house boasting an interior rich with ornamental details. As was often the case, DeVinck notes the house was “modernized” in the 1950s. Many of the interior details were simplified and removed, including the dining room builtin buffet, plate rack and the original light fixtures. On the exterior, the stucco was covered with brick, and the entry was covered with stone work. The modernization, along with smoke damage from the fires in the 1980s, created a fixer-upper opportunity for the current owners. The current owners have taken on what DeVinck describes as “an incredible amount of work.” They have restored the stucco and roof, opened up porches, replicated original trim, replicated windows, renovated the kitchen in an appropriate style and even had missing spindles replicated for the grand stair case. Aided by the photos taken by the home’s Depression-era inhabitant, they have sought to return much of the house to its original state.

Charles E. Roberts House (Burnham & Root, 1885; Wright remodel, 1896): A majestic Queen Anne with Wright’s hand evidenced in the extensive decorative woodwork.

Burnham and Root, with a good I dash of Wright Architectural archives reflect storied past

By LACEY SIKORA Contributing Reporter

n many ways, Charles Roberts was quite the progressive Oak Park resident in the late 19th century. While he may have been the first U.S. inventor to manufacture an electric car – which is carefully cared for and rumored to still be running in Rhode Island -- he was a bit too ahead of his time to make his fortune in the automobile industry. His electric car and dandelion rake proved disappointments in monetary terms, but his patent for a machine that could create a screw in a single operation made him a rich man.

Roberts founded the Chicago Screw Company with some financial backing from fellow Oak Park resident James Scoville, and in 1904 sold the business for a cool $1 million. You might not know it to look at his house today, but the Queen Anne-style home on Euclid Avenue was also a bit progressive for its time. According to Frank Lloyd Wright Trust research captain Sue Blaine, the home represents a progressive stage for architects Burnham and Root. Famous for their work on the Field Museum and the Chicago Main Post Office spanning the Eisenhower expressway, their Rookery Building in Chicago also was considered See ROBERTS HOUSE on page B15

Blaine says that researching the 1885 Roberts house reminded her that the era shaped the architecture. “It helped me put the house in context,” Blaine said. “I hadn’t thought of the Queen Anne style as being progressive, but it is in comparison to the elaborate Victorian style that preceded it.”

ing wooden screens to allow light to shine through, and on the first floor added a horizontal band of wood to give the house a sense of continuity. Wright added two fireplaces to the three already put in place by Burnham and Root and used similar enamel tile to tie the designs together. \ On the first floor, Wright designed a bedroom for the Roberts, with a full bathroom, closet and pull-down bed. The current owners use the room as a music room. Blaine notes that researching the early changes to the house was a treat, because she had Wright’s drawings for the project. “Wright took Burnham and Root’s drawings and, in colored pencil, he marked what he was doing that was new,” Blaine said. “Unfortunately, as is typical of Wright, what was drawn and what was built didn’t always match. They gave the house a bit more functionality in the building.”

In 1896, Roberts hired Frank Lloyd Wright to remodel the house. Roberts was friendly with Wright and a big proponent of his work. In 1905, when Roberts was head of the From full house to single-family home building committee for the Unity Temple, Blaine’s research showed that for much he pushed to have Wright named as head of its history, the Roberts House was often architect. full of inhabitants.

From stable to garage to home

The Roberts Stable makes Wright Plus debut By LACEY SIKORA

Contributing Reporter

ost likely built in 1885, the structure next door to the Charles E. Roberts House, the Charles E. Roberts Stable has seen multiple uses in its existence. Frank Lloyd Wright Trust research captain Sue Blaine, who oversaw research for both the house, which is also on the tour, and stable says that the stable, now a singlefamily home, has a pedigree as interesting as the larger house next door. The first picture she discovered of the stable is dated 1888, and she says no original architect’s plans survive. “It looks like a typical Midwestern barn with rusty paint and a triangular roof,” Blaine said. “There are a couple of cows, a horse and a carriage in the photo. My best guess is they didn’t use a high-priced architect for the design. They probably thought about how many animals they needed to house and would a carriage fit inside.” Blaine believes SUE BLAINE the stable was most Frank Lloyd Wright Trust likely remodeled research captain when Wright remodeled the main Roberts House in 1896. In 1888, photos show a barn and in 1908, the stable had been moved and part of it rounded out. She hypothesizes that Wright remodeled the stable so that Roberts could use it to house his car. On the second floor, a bedroom was created in the rounded side, while an additional three bedrooms and a bath were on the op-

“They are both really fabulous homes with very different feels.”

She guesses that the living quarters in Wright’s redesign were intended for servants. In 1929, Roberts had his son-in-law, architect Charles White, remodel the stable again. Based on Sanborn fire insurance maps, Blaine could see that White moved the stable, turning it 90 degrees so that the rounded part faced east. Blaine says that White’s drawings label much of the second floor “as is,” leading her to believe that he did little to remodel the second-floor spaces. Phone directories of that time indicate that both Charles White and Chapin Roberts, Charles Robert’s son, are listed in living at the property in the “rear,” leading Blaine to deduce the home had now become living quarters for family. Chapin Roberts lived in the home until his death in 1954. A family purchased the home

and, on the death of his parents, the son rented out the house. The third owners, the McBride family, tackled what Blaine calls a “fairly massive” remodel. They converted the second-floor sitting room to a Jack-and-Jill bathroom between bedrooms and combined two hall bathrooms to create a master bathroom. On the first floor, they removed interior walls to create a larger kitchen with a breakfast room and a powder room. An interior art-glass window created by Eve McBride was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s stork panels at Wright’s Oak Park home and studio. Blaine says the current owners have taken pains to renovate and restore the home. They updated the second-floor bedrooms and turned a potting room into an office and mudroom space.

They also used space from a bedroom to create a staircase to the third floor and created an attic play space with wood trim inspired by the trim used in the Wright Home and Studio. Highlighting the curved motif of the east facing wall, the current owners also created a pergola-type carport that sports a curved top. The patio curves to mimic the curve of the house, and the kitchen cabinets are also curved. For Wright Plus, guests will stand in one line for both homes, viewing the house first and then exiting towards the stable. Blaine notes that the Wright Plus volunteers aim to develop a narrative between the Roberts House and Stable for visitors. “They are both really fabulous homes with very different feels,” Blain said. “It’s 1885 versus 1929 in terms of layout.”

Local REALTORS® go to Springfield

M

ost everyone knows that in the Midwest, the Spring Market is typically the busiest time of the real estate year. Our local market is no different. Many of our members are working long hours on behalf of our buyer and seller clients. Your local real estate association, the Oak Park Area Association of REALTORS® (OPAAR), has also been hard at work advocating for the interests of their membership and in turn their clients in Springfield during the peak of the legislative season. OPAAR sent a delegation down to the State Capitol last month to participate in the Illinois REALTOR® Capitol Conference and Lobby Day. This year over 750 agents from across the state met with their local state representatives to advocate on a variety of real estate related topics. Our members met with State Senator Don Harmon, (39th Sen. District) and Camille Lilly (78th District Rep.) both graduates of Oak Park-River Forest High School. We also met with 20th District Rep. Michael McAuliffe whose district encompasses Elmwood Park. In Illinois, a large portion of the legislative calendar is packed into a roughly three week window and we were fortunate that our meetings coincided with this window. Especially during an election year when attention can be diverted, the opportunity to meet face to face and explain our positions on a variety of real estate related legislation was paramount. We advocated against two bills designed to repeal the Rent Control Preemption Act which could allow local governments to enact rent control ordinances and mandate rent control boards in all 102 Illinois counties. Another bill, detrimental to our clients and our industry is attempting to

provide for the sealing of court records regarding eviction actions, thereby preventing landlords from learning if prospective tenants have had eviction actions filed against them. We supported a bill that will mandate that a local government may not conduct a physical inspection of residential property without the voluntary consent of the owner or occupant of the property, or a warrant or court order. This event, which has grown considerably in the last several legislative sessions, was capped with a reception where we were again given the opportunity to discuss issues with our representatives including Governor Bruce Rauner.

Pat Cesario (right) is named REALTOR® of the Year by OPAAR.

The evening before, the annual REALTOR® of the Year banquet was held where Pat Cesario of Gagliardo Realty Associates was recognized by the state association as OPAAR’s REALTOR® of the Year. This award is given to the agent who best exemplifies the professional qualities of a REALTOR®. It is based on a person’s service and leadership in the community and civic affairs as well as activities in the association. When considering buying or selling a home, choose a local expert member of OPAAR. We are advocates for the communities we serve as well as the goals of our clients.

Celebrating 100 Years of helping our clients achieve their dreams!

Contributing Reporter

ast year, the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust welcomed more than 150,000 visitors to five Frank Lloyd Wrightdesigned sites: the Wright Home and Studio and Unity Temple in Oak Park, and the Rookery Building, Frederick C. Robie House and the Emil Bach House in Chicago. On May 8, the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, along with the Illinois Department of Tourism, announced an initiative sure to grow the number of Wright tourists in Illinois, where Wright lived and worked during the first 20 years of his career. The new Frank Lloyd Wright Trail Illi-

nois features 13 Wright-designed buildings throughout the state open for self-guided tours. State Sen. Don Harmon, an Oak Park native, helped introduce the legislation designating the trail. “Growing up in Oak Park, I may have taken Frank Lloyd Wright for granted, with a masterpiece around every corner,” Harmon said. “With Wright’s architectural genius clearly recognized around the world, though, we have an opportunity and responsibility to share him more generously.” Illinois Department of Tourism Director Cory Jobe noted that the bill was introduced last year in what was the 150th anniversary See WRIGHT TRAIL on page B25

Angelo Spinelli, 102, died on Feb. 22, 2015 and his wife, Dorothy Spinelli (nee Bruschi), 102, died on May 1, 2018. They were married on Jan. 5, 1937 at Our Lady of Pompeii Church and returned to that church on April 20, 2014 to celebrate 77 years of marriage. The couple were residents of Forest Park since 1948 and were part of St. Bernardine Church, the Holy Name Society, Knights of Columbus (Angelo was a 4th Degree Knight), Italian Catholic Federation, the Boy Scouts and the Cub Scouts. They lived the life that made them happy and had many friends who, unfortunately, have all passed. Dorothy was an avid reader and loved to cook using old-world recipes passed down from her mother. She told wonderful stories about growing up during Prohibition times in the Taylor Street neighborhood of Chicago. Angelo was a hard worker who drove a truck (member of the AFL-CIO) for 62 years. He could fix anything, from cars to rebuilding their home from the bottom up. In 2014, they were honored by the village of Forest Park when Circle Avenue was named “Honorary Angelo and Dorothy Spinelli Drive.” Angelo and Dorothy were the parents of Antoinette, Ben (Millie) and Art (Diane); grandparents of Tom, Beth (Joe Sarnello), Edward (Rose), Robbie (Tiffany), Angela (Bryan Tomkins), Anthony (Laura) and

Michelle Spinelli; great-grandparents of Joseph, Gigi, Sara, Eric, Isabella, Jessica, Joseph, Alyssa, Kailee, Cade, Colin, Vincent and Briana; great-great-grandparents of twins, Kate and Owen; and great friends of Maria and Jim Laudont and their family. They are survived by their sister, Phyllis Tucillo and many nieces and nephews. The couple were preceded in death by their parents, Benedict and Antoinette Spinelli and Alisa and Arthur Quarto; siblings, Libra (Samuel) Trentacosta, Bruno Bruschi, Julia (Carmen) Alanzo, Ann (John) Stringini), Arthur (Josie) Quarto, Carmella (Herman) Nick, and May Hanson. Visitation and Mass were celebrated on May 7 at St. Bernardine Catholic Church, followed by interment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery. Arrangements were handled by Zimmerman-Harnett Funeral Home.

Helen O’Leary, 99 Forest Park resident Helen J. O’Leary, 99, of Forest Park, died on April 28, 2018. A longtime Forest Park resident, Helen was the daughter of the late Arthur and Gertrude O’Leary; sister of the late Shirley O’Leary; cousin of Donna Altman and Nancy Souza; and the friend of Carlene Reese. Visitation at Zimmerman-Harnett Funeral Home and a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Luke Catholic Church were held on May 5, followed by interment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery.

Support4U is a mental health-related prevention and support resource for students, by which they can text licensed mental health clinicians any time of the day for assistance or guidance. While students can initiate a text conversation on any issue, some of the matters that students might wish to address could include anxiety, depression, substance use, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, bullying, abuse, or any other mental health-related topic. The resource is anonymous, so studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns about their identity are not a barrier to reaching out. The clinicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal during the text conversation is to assess the situation, provide skills counseling when appropriate and steer the student to available resources in the school and community.

Community Funded By The Following Organizations

Support4U Initiative was identified through the work of the Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention Task Force. MHASP is a community-based task force made up of the Community Mental Health Boards of Oak Park and River Forest, NAMI, Riveredge Hospital, Thrive, Local School Representation; D200, D90, Oak Park Police, Village of Oak Park, Congregation of Churches, and community behavioral health professionals
