Most recent fiscal year ended in the red; officials trying to close gap By BOB UPHUES Editor

As North Riverside officials prepare for their two days of budget workshops later this month, they’ll be faced with stemming the flow of red ink that characterized the 2017-18 fiscal year, which ended on April 30. Sue Scarpiniti, the village’s finance director, said expenditures outpaced revenues in the general operating fund by about $477,000 in the recently ended fiscal year.

After burglaries, seniors file lawsuit against hospital Claim MacNeal failed to safeguard sensitive personal info

By BOB UPHUES Editor

Three senior citizens, including at least two from Riverside, have filed a six-count class-

action lawsuit in the Chancery Division of Cook County Circuit Court against MacNeal Hospital, claiming the institution’s failure to safeguard personal information led to their homes being burglarized by a former nurse

assistant. The plaintiffs, who range in age from 78 to 93, allege that the hospital also failed to inform all of the victims of its failure to protect their information in a timely manner.

When she opened Flur in downtown Riverside five years ago, Adriana SaldanaMeadath knew how the stigma of “glutenfree” might turn off folks seeking a local bakery. She avoided the term at all costs, even though everything made at Flur is glutenfree. “It was daunting,” said Saldana-Meadath. “A lot of my business mentors thought I was not going to succeed.” While weekday walk-in business has been unpredictable, Saldana-Meadath noticed her Saturday customers would trek in from long distances – as far away as Wisconsin and Indiana – to get their glutenfree treats. And the store’s wholesale business has exploded. Flur products can be found at Sunset Foods in the northern suburbs and Standard Market out in the western ’burbs, as well as the Union League Club and Medinah Country Club, to whom Flur provides 2,000 muffins a week. This weekend, Saldana-Meadath will launch Flur Marketplace – a concept she hopes may one day might allow the business to expand physically, perhaps across the hallway into the long-vacant former Chew Chew space inside the Arcade Building at 1 RivADRIANA erside Road. “There’s nothSALDANAMEADATH ing out there like Owner of Flur this,” said Saldana-Meadath, a graduate of the French Pastry School in Chicago. “We’ve built a trusted brand over the past five years and we want to continue creating that.” For now, the “marketplace” will be confined to a cooler and a shelving unit inside the bakery, but they will offer customers other artisanal gluten-free food choices – from gluten free baby food to snacks flavored with exotic spices to sauerkraut. The idea for the marketplace came earlier this year, said Saldana-Meadath, after the bakery rolled out special gluten-free

SWEET DREAMS: Adriana Saldana-Meadath will debut her a “marketplace” of locally made artisanal gluten-free food products on May 19, coinciding with the Riverside Arts Weekend, which kicks off that morning. The products will be available on an ongoing basis inside the bakery. pretzels for Super Bowl weekend. “I miss good comfort food,” said SaldanaMeadath, who said it took two months to perfect the salty snacks. The bakery made 80 pretzels and announced them for sale online; they were sold out in 40 minutes to customers putting in orders from as far away as Vernon Hills and Oswego. Saldana-Meadath’s assistant, Zach Lynch, suggested the idea of a “one-stop shop” marketplace to provide more options for customers clearly yearning for them. To find other local, artisanal gluten-free products, Saldana-Meadath turned to the FamilyFarmed Good Food Accelerator, a food business incubator, of which SaldanaMeadath is an alumna. A couple of years ago, Saldana-Meadath was looking for some help in growing her business and made her pitch to the Good Food Accelerator, an experience she said was akin to the TV show “Shark Tank,” where you need to convince investors your business model is worth a financial chance. Of the 300 applicants, Flur was one of

nine selected to be part of the incubator, and Saldana-Meadath spent six months learning more about things like branding, financing and landing investors. “I reached out to them, because they have already vetted food entrepreneurs,” Saldana-Meadath said. She picked five companies presently in the program, including Tempo, which produces sparkling organic teas; Departure Snacks, which uses exotic spices from around the world; Cultured Love, makers of raw, fermented sauerkraut; No Denial, a brand of mixed nuts; and Lil’ Gourmets, which makes organic baby food. If the concept takes off, Saldana-Meadath, may look to add the products of other artisanal gluten-free products to the selection. The first day to buy products from the Flur Marketplace will be May 19, which coincides with the Riverside Arts Weekend. But the products will, be available for purchase every day at the bakery, which is open Monday through Thursday from 6 to 11 a.m., Friday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

LTHS, RBHS miss cut in U.S News rankings Officials downplay validity of data from old state exam

By BOB SKOLNIK Contributing Reporter

Neither Lyons Township High School nor Riverside-Brookfield High School made the U.S. News & World Report list of the top 100 high schools in Illinois, but administrators at both schools aren’t very concerned about it, saying that the rankings are based on a discontinued test that students didn’t take seriously. U.S. News ranked Chicago selective-enrollment high school Payton College Prep as the top high school in Illinois. Stevenson High School, where former RBHS science department chairperson Troy Gobble is the principal, was ranked seventh and was the highest non-selective enrollment high school in the rankings. Last year LTHS was ranked 17th in the state by U.S. News. Why the big drop for LTHS this year? “We have no idea,” said Scott Eggerding, the director of curriculum and instruction at the high school, which serves the south half of Brookfield and has campuses in LaGrange and Western Springs. The magazine uses a four factors to determine its rankings. The first is that ranked schools must outperform state averages on state-mandated math and reading tests, factoring in the percentage of low-income and minority students.

BUDGET

WC3 costs an issue from page 1 fund pays the day-to-day expenses of village operations, like employee salaries and benefits. North Riverside’s village board and department heads will convene on Tuesday, May 30 at 5 p.m. to finalize a budget for the 2018-19 fiscal year, which began May 1. Trustees must pass an appropriations ordinance, the document providing the legal spending authority for the village, by the end of the first quarter of the fiscal year, July 31. With police and fire pension costs expected to rise another $400,000, and with sales tax revenues, at least temporarily, expected to take a hit with the impending losses of Toys R Us, Carson Pirie Scott and Tony’s Finer Foods, the new budget is expected to be a challenging one. That doesn’t include what financial impact the new West Central Consolidated Communications dispatch agency will have – though an early estimate late last week had Mayor Hubert Hermanek Jr. seeing stars. Hermanek said estimates indicated North

High schools could administer the PARCC the PARCC test at the high school level, to whichever they grade level they chose, which is why it was only administered for with a different test for each grade level. two years.” LTHS gave the PARCC to freshmen while Eggerding noted that highly regarded high RBHS gave the PARCC to sophomores. schools such as New Tier High School, Oak

Park and River Forest High School, Highland Park High School, Deerfield High School and all of the Glenbard high schools also were “unranked” by U.S. News. “These are all schools that are very highperforming,” Eggerding said. “We’re in good company, I guess.” According to information in the U.S. News report, 50 percent of LTHS students taking the PARCC exam in 2016 were ranked as proficient in reading while only 31 percent were classified as proficient in math. “If a student is not taking a test very seriously they’ll read a story and answer questions, but if they see a problem they don’t even want to bother with, they’ll just skip it,” said Eggerding, in offering a hypothesis on why the math scores were so low. At RBHS, 39 percent of students were rated as proficient in reading and 34 percent were rated as proficient in math. Fifty-two percent of LTHS students took an Advanced Placement exam, with an 88-percent pass rate on AP exams. RBHS had a 58 percent participation rate in AP classes, with a 75-percent pass rate. Administrators often struggle to figure out the ranking systems various organizations use and typically don’t put a lot of stock in the rankings. “Any of those rankings you’re happy to be ranked, but you never quite understand why you are or you aren’t,” Eggerding said.

Riverside’s contribution to WC3 during the 2018-19 fiscal year would be $1.1 million, which put the first draft of the village’s operating budget in a $2 million hole. “I’m flabbergasted by it,” said Hermanek, who added he has called for a meeting with WC3 Executive Director Jason Rodgers this week to clarify the cost estimate. “This will just cripple the village. How do you come up with that kind of money? You can’t nickel and dime $2 million.” Reached on May 11, Rodgers said he was trying to nail down those cost estimates. “I need to get better information to them,” Rodgers said. “It doesn’t seem right to me either.” WC3 will work on a calendar fiscal year. The agency went live on May 8 and is working off a partial budget for 2018. During the last 12 months, all three partner communities in WC3 have split more than $1 million in costs, much of it for information technology infrastructure and remodeling the North Riverside police station to accommodate the center and its activities. The $1.1 million referenced by Hermanek would indicate annual costs for WC3 of more than $3 million, since each municipality shares costs equally. That kind of outlay would be alarming for Brookfield and Riverside officials as well. During North Riverside’s 2017-18 fiscal year, the village saw higher-than-budget-

The fees “account for approximately 10 percent of the 35 percent increase just by itself,” Scarpiniti said. As costs have risen, the village has also found a couple of new sources of revenue. North Riverside’s annual property tax revenues have increased 16.5 percent in the past four years. After two decades of freezing its tax levy, the village in recent years has levied additional property taxes allowed by Illinois law, adding about $75,000 to its coffers compared to 2014. But the village has seen much more dramatic increases in its revenues from its places-of-eating tax, which has almost tripled since 2014 to nearly $1 million in the most recent fiscal year. North Riverside in 2017-18 collected about $205,000 in video-gambling revenue, a source of income that barely scraped $30,000 in 2014. Red-light camera citation revenues also remain a critical source of revenue for the village. In 2017-18, red-light camera citations brought in about $1,375,000. The village collected another $1,333,500 in revenue from the Illinois Comptroller’s Local Debt Recovery Program, which allows the village to go after unpaid red-light camera tickets. Total fine revenue in 2017-18 was estimated at $3.2 million. For 2013-14, revenue from fines accounted for $662,000.

“It [PARCC] was a complete and utter fiasco.”

ed expenditures for both police services and general village administration. Fire department spending was right at plan, though that department has seen its staffing levels fall in recent years due to retirements and terminations. A comparison of expenses since fiscal year 2013-14 shows that costs for general administration have increased by 100 percent since that time, from $1.37 million to $2.75 million annually. That increase far outstripped the increase in costs for police (29 percent) and fire (36 percent), despite the village beginning to pay its full pension obligations in those departments during those years. The reasons for the large jump in costs for administration, said Scarpiniti, is that operating transfers all fall under administration, in addition to paying salaries and benefits for administrators. Removing the transfers from the equation results in personnel cost for administration rising by 35 percent since 2014, more in line with other departments. “The transfers to other funds were $705,000 in 2014 and just over $1.8 million in 2018,” Scarpiniti said. Also counted in that 35 percent figure, said Scarpiniti is an expected payment of $66,000 in new state fees on the village’s non-home rule sale tax and a new municipal telecommunications tax.

Riverside Arts Weekend kicks off summer event season More than 100 pitch in on this year’s ‘spectacle’

By BOB UPHUES Editor

When she signed up as a volunteer back in January to help with this year’s Riverside Arts Weekend, Laurie Redden Risley thought her assistance would mainly exist at the margins. However, the longtime Riverside resident quickly found herself in charge of RAW’s annual “spectacle,” a community art effort rolled out in the week preceding the annual juried art fair. This year’s spectacle – 35 hand-crafted letters and one exclamation point standing 4- to 5-feet tall, and spelling out the words “Imagine!” “art,” “RAW,” “create,” “inspire” and “inform” – have begun appearing at Guthrie Park, Centennial Park and in front of the library to announce the event, which will take place Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20 in Guthrie Park. “I feel thrilled at how dedicated these people were,” said Risley. “Nothing they did was simple.” While this year’s spectacle was simple in theory, it was perhaps the most elaborate and labor-intensive spectacle ever devised for RAW. More than 100 people participated in the creation of the letters, said Risley, and

very few of those involved are professional artists. Students from Hauser Junior High, Girl Scouts, families – even Risley’s 86-year-old mom – conceived and constructed their letters out of materials ranging from crushed cans to plastic bottle tops to found wood to foam balls and material stuffed and woven into wire cages. “People used every kind of material imaginable,” said Risley, who worked on two letters herself, a letter “I” dotted with a floating eyeball and an “R” (for Risley) inspired by her home garden – where it will likely end up permanently. Risley participated in the RAW spectacle in 2015, when participants were asked to decorate plastic coyotes. That project, she said,

paled in comparison to creating the letters from scratch. Because there were no set guidelines for building the letters or making sure they were particularly durable -- unlike previous spectacle display pieces, this year’s won’t be auctioned off – Risley says there’s a bit of unpredictability built into this year’s spectacle. But she’s not particularly worried about it. “I do expect some to suffer a bit, but that’s A-OK,” Risley said. “This is people pushing outside of their boundaries. I look at every one of these as a win. This was no easy thing.”

Many new artists this year Jill Mateo, a member of the RAW board of directors, said that about 75 percent of the roughly 60 artists participating in this year’s event will be new to visitors. Items for sale this year include paintings, prints, photographs, hand-crafted wood, jewelry, clothing, ceramics, fabric, glass, paper, multimedia and more. Booths will be set up in Guthrie Park, which is located at Riverside and Bloomingbank roads in downtown Riverside. The Riverside Arts Center will also have a booth where children and families can

Lemonade stand taken out of mothballs

here’s an old saying that goes, “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” While that may be good advice for adults, for children it translates into “If life gives you lemons, have a lemonade stand.” Who as a child didn’t have a lemonade stand? We were going to make our fortune, although it probably cost our parents more to make the cooling drink than what we made. Our intent was to make money to spend, not to save for something sensible, like a college fund. However, there were times that children gave money to a charity. I seem to remember my lemonade stand consisting of a folding table with a tablecloth over it and a handmade sign. The cash box was a cigar box. Simple and functional. But then sometime in the 1970s, the epitome of lemonade stands appeared on the corner of Selborne and Longcommon. It was the craftsmanship of Steve Wolgemuth, who lived in the ‘”farm” house on that corner; he made the lemonade stand for his children. It was made of wood and painted yellow, and it somewhat resem-

bled Lucy’s therapist stand from the “Peanuts” cartoon. Wolgemuth’s children seemed rather successful with their little business, bolstered by an impressive stand. When the Wolgemuth children took on other interests, the stand went across the street to the Heine girls, who took their turn at entrepreneurship until they grew out of the lemonade stand stage. The stand moved a few houses down to the Duve children, who ran the stand until they grew up and got interested in other things. The stand was then retired to the Duve garage -- until now. The stand has found its way across the street back to the “farm” house and a new family with young children, who hopefully will continue the Selborne Road lemonade stand. Watch for it. Now I don’t know the going price for a lemonade stand drink, but Husband Joe came home with a glass from a little girl in Brookfield and said he paid $1. Of course, it did include a plastic Cubs cup -- what a deal. Oh, the little girl just happened to be our granddaughter, McKenna, so I still don’t know the going rate, because I think Poppy was generous.

LAWSUIT from page 1 sentence in state prison after pleading guilty to nine counts of burglary last November. The scheme according to police officials was for Albavera to access patient information and then to burglarize their homes while they were in patient at MacNeal. “MacNeal Hospital’s conduct constituted, at a minimum, gross negligence that show wanton disregard [for] the rights of the plaintiffs and class members regarding the safeguarding of their sensitive personal information,” the complaint states. Loyola Medicine, which purchased MacNeal Hospital earlier this year from for-profit Tenet Healthcare, said the Berwyn hospital’s prior owner would be litigating the case and directed questions to Tenet’s media relations office. Tenet Healthcare did not respond to an email seeking comment on the lawsuit prior to the Landmark’s press time.

In addition to failing to safeguard patients’ sensitive personal information, MacNeal Hospital is accused of intentionally inflicting emotional distress on the victims by failing to disclose its failure to protect their information in a timely manner. At least one of the plaintiffs, according to the lawsuit, “has repeatedly lost sleep due to anxiety over the burglary” and all of the plaintiffs have experienced “heightened anxiety” due to their homes being burglarized and during subsequent hospital visits. The three senior citizens are being represented by Chicago attorney Karl Leinberger. According to the lawsuit, which was filed April 19, Albavera may have victimized as many as 18 people in all. The suit seeks unspecified monetary damages for actual losses and punitive damages, as well as court costs and attorneys’ fees. Riverside Police Chief Thomas Weitzel told the Landmark last year that Albavera would befriend senior citizens in the hospital emergency room and would visit them in their rooms, determining whether or not they lived alone or had family nearby.

The lawsuit claims Albavera “used his improper access to sensitive personal information to identify which plaintiffs and class members were currently patients at MacNeal Hospital and lived alone, as well as their addresses.” While the victims recuperated in the hospital, Albavera would break into their homes and steal items. According to the lawsuit, Albavera worked at MacNeal Hospital during at least a portion of 2016 and 2017 as a nurse assistant, and that his job did not require him to access most of a patient’s sensitive personal information. During their investigation, police established that all of the victims were patients at MacNeal Hospital, were senior citizens and lived alone. Police set up surveillance at a potential target’s home and apprehended Albavera on Feb. 9, 2017, after he tried to force open the rear door of a Berwyn home. The lawsuit proposes that the class-action pool include anyone who was a patient at MacNeal Hospital from April 13, 2013 through Feb. 28, 2017, whose information Albavera accessed.

North Riverside seeks firefighter/medics for hiring list First time ever both skills required for full-time candidates

By BOB UPHUES Editor

After hiring three firefighters to fill vacancies left by retirements, the village of North Riverside needs to create a new hiring list for its fire department. So, last week the village placed a help-wanted ad in the local newspaper, directing potential candidates to a place online where they could submit their applications. In doing so, the village said it is seeking “firefighter/paramedics.” According to both Fire Chief Tom Gaertner and Mayor Hubert Hermanek Jr., the resulting hiring list will comprise candidates who will be paramedic/firefighters – a first for a village that has long separated the two duties. Traditionally, union firefighters in North Riverside – even ones with paramedic certification – don’t perform full paramedic duties. And contract paramedics – even ones who are certified firefighters – don’t fight fires. North Riverside pays about $500,000 annually to a company called Paramedic Services of Illinois (PSI) to provide it with six paramedics – two per 24-hour shift. The depart-

ment also presently employs 13 firefighters, five of whom are certified paramedics, according to Gaertner. Of the 13 union firefighters, at least four have more than 20 years of service with the department. Another four have 18 or more years of service. In the next few years, the percentage of union firefighter/paramedics likely will increase. So, with the village now actively recruiting only firefighter/paramedics for fulltime union jobs, where is the North Riverside Fire Department headed? Both Gaertner and Hermanek said the reason to seek firefighter/paramedics is to improve service to residents. Specifically, said Gaertner, he’d like to be able to guarantee that the department can staff its frontline engine with a paramedic capable of rendering advanced life support, in addition to its front-line ambulance. That way, if the ambulance is on another call and the engine gets to a medical call first, that paramedic can provide advanced life support without having to wait for the ambulance to arrive. Right now, the union firefighters, even ones with paramedic certification, perform only basic life support, though they assist

paramedics when needed. “My primary reason for doing it was to get the engine staffed with at least one [paramedic], so we can provide better care if and when the ambulance is tied up on another call,” said Gaertner. Asked if the requirement that its firefighters also be paramedics means North Riverside is heading toward a new staffing model for the department, Gaertner demurred. “That I don’t know,” he said. “I think it’s too soon to tell on that.” Hermanek cautioned against leaping to conclude that North Riverside is heading toward the day when it will be staffed only with firefighter/paramedics and that it will no longer need to hire paramedics from a private firm, as it does now. Part of the reason for his caution, Hermanek said, is that the chasm between the village’s vision for the department and the union’s remains unbridged. Union firefighters have been working without a contract since May 1, 2014, the year the village attempted to privatize the department’s firefighting services through legal action. After almost four years in court, that attempt failed.

Both sides are slated to appear before an Illinois Labor Relations Board arbitrator on June 29. Hermanek says if the village parts ways with PSI, it would have to hire six full-time firefighters to make up for the loss, something will village consistently has said it can’t afford due to the added pension liability. North Riverside Firefighters Union Local 2714 President Chris Kribales said the union has pushed for manning ambulances with lower-cost, part-time firefighter/paramedics that would be hired by the village, similar to the model adopted by the Bensenville Fire Protection District. Kribales argues that the talent pool exists to support such a model and that it could also help the village identify new full-time firefighter paramedic candidates as more senior staff retire. Whether or not the village chooses to maintain its relationship with PSI or not, Kribales called the village’s shift in philosophy toward recruiting only firefighter/ paramedics a victory for residents. “We love it,” Kribales said. “That’s going to be giving a higher quality service to residents.”

Construction season arrives in Riverside MWRD, street repair projects kick off for summer

By BOB UPHUES Editor

Construction season has arrived in Riverside, and anyone living in or driving through the village – particularly south of the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad tracks -- this summer will no doubt feel its impact. On May 10, equipment related to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago’s Salt Creek Intercepting Sewer No. 2 sewer lining project reappeared on Riverside Road. Depending on rainfall – since crews from Kenny Construction can’t work on the pipes until storm water drains from them – work is expected to begin sometime this week. Under construction since 2016, the $41 million project will result in rehabilitating more than six miles of the Salt Creek Intercepting Sewer No. 2, which extends down First Avenue from roughly Roosevelt Road to Forest Avenue/Ridgewood Road and then heads both east and west into Riverside and Brookfield. The Salt Creek Intercepting Sewer conveys combined waste and storm water to the MWRD’s waste water treatment facility in Stickney. The sewer is also part of the MWRD’s Tunnel and Reservoir Plan (TARP), also known as the Deep Tunnel system, which serves as a massive combined sewer overflow during heavy rain events. Crews have been inserting a flexible tube, impregnated with resin, into the 90-year-old Salt Creek Intercepting Sewer pipes and then curing the liner in place. In Riverside, the work has taken place inside the pipes, which are up to seven feet in diameter. In Brookfield along Arden Avenue, where the work restarted in April, the liner was

fed into the smaller sewer line from trucks parked along the street. The sewer lining project is expected to wrap up later this year.

First Division street improvements After enduring a very dusty summer in 2017 with the installation of a new storm water sewer system, residents of Riverside’s First Division will see their streets ripped up again – this time in order to repave them. On May 3, Riverside trustees voted unanimously to approve a $1.33 million contract with Christopher B. Burke Engineering Ltd. to oversee the design and construction of the improvements. Work is expected to last through July 6, according to a construction notice issued by the village last week. All of the streets in the First Division affected by last year’s sewer project will be completely resurfaced, including Scottswood Road, from Barrypoint to Fairbank; Millbridge Road, from Fairbank to Bloomingbank; Coonley Road, from Fairbank to Bloomingbank; Fairbank Road, from Barrypoint to Bloomingbank; and Bloomingbank Road, from Fairbank to Barrypoint. Work will also involve the repair of damaged drainage structures and spot replacement of curbs, gutters, carriage walks and driveway aprons. ADA-accessible sidewalk ramps will be installed at intersections. According to the village, residents will have access to their driveways except if a driveway apron is to be replaced. Residents will receive written notification prior to the apron removal, according to the village. Any homeowner with a parkway sprinkler system installed is asked to clearly mark the location of sprinklers to avoid them being damaged. The village, however, says it is not

responsible for any damage to sprinklers in the parkway. Parking will be limited during the construction project, and vehicles left in places where a prohibition is in place risk getting towed. The contract also includes $100,000 for the village’s sidewalk replacement program and $7,500 for thermoplastic pavement markings that will be applied throughout the village in response to a traffic study completed last year.

Other road repairs Resurfacing Barrypoint Road is not part of the contract, but the resurfacing for that street is included in a project involving a federal Surface Transportation Program grant funds. In April, Riverside sought bids for resurfacing Barrypoint, Forest and Herrick roads through the STP grant program. The work also includes spot replacement of curb and gutter, sections of sidewalk, installation of ADA ramps, and repairs to drainage structures. Bids were due back to the village on May 11 and the project is expected to be part of the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Aug. 3 letting. Construction is slated for the fall. Also due back on May 11 were bids for a major streetscape/pedestrian safety project for the area in and around the downtown Riverside train station that will also begin construction in the fall. The area affected by construction will be Riverside Road between the tracks and East Quincy Street and Bloomingbank Road in front of the train station. That work is also being funded in large part by a federal STP grant.

Quincy Street facelift on hold, for now A plan to makeover the streetscape along East Quincy Street in downtown Riverside remains on hold after the village failed to win a substantial grant in response to its latest application for funding through the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP). In early May, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced that Riverside had been awarded $10,000 through the ITEP program, money the village will use to fund preliminary design work on the East Quincy Street project. The goal of the project is to have the streetscape in the downtown section of East Quincy Street match the existing streetscape on East Burlington Street and work scheduled later this year on Riverside Road. The total cost for construction of the East Quincy Street streetscape is estimated to be in the vicinity of $706,000. Sonya Aby, the village’s community development director, said Riverside will reapply for a larger ITEP grant, hopefully later this year. As a result, engineering design work for the streetscape makeover will likely take place through 2019. If the village wins a grant that will fund 80 percent of construction, the project could be ready to break ground in 2020. — Bob Uphues

Brookfield to issue RFQ for bowling alley site Responses from developers due as early as late June

By BOB UPHUES Editor

The village of Brookfield will formally seek qualifications from companies and concepts for redeveloping the site of the long-vacant Brookfield Bowl, 3415 Maple Ave., with responses from firms due in either late June or early July. Village trustees gave the staff the go-ahead to issue a request of qualifications at their meeting on May 14, after Community and Economic development Director Nicholas Greifer said an RFQ was the best way to “open up [the redevelopment process] as much as possible.” The village’s action comes as its preliminary redevelopment agreement on the property with Hinsdale-based Tartan Builders

expires this week. Brookfield entered into the agreement in March to give Tartan Builders a chance to do their due diligence with respect to redevelopment options for the site, which is part of the Eight Corners Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District. Greifer said he expects Tartan Builders to respond to the RFQ with a proposal that calls for redeveloping the property into an apartment complex for older, active adults. That was one of two concepts Tartan Builders’ owners told village officials they would be exploring back in February. The preliminary redevelopment agreement gave Tartan Builders a leg up on other firms which may be interested in redeveloping the property. Firms will have about four weeks from the time the RFQ is issued to work up

rough concepts and respond to the village. “I don’t think we’ll get a huge number of responses, because it’s been a tricky site to redevelop,” Greifer. Staff will evaluate the responses to the RFQ and then recommend to the village board a firm to begin negotiating a formal redevelopment agreement. That’s the same process the village used last year to settle on a preferred developer for village-owned land near the Congress Park train station. The village has been trying to negotiate a redevelopment agreement for that property since last fall. Earlier this year, village staff said an agreement was imminent, but so far nothing final has been presented to the village board for approval.

Greifer said he expected Tartan Builders to meet soon with Village President Kit Ketchmark to relay what they’ve learned about redeveloping the Brookfield Bowl site. “Now we’re looking to them to take the next step and show us what they got,” Greifer said. “I fully expect them to do that.” Even after Brookfield has identified a preferred developer and begins to negotiate a formal agreement, the village will have to put out a call for other proposals, a requirement of the TIF Act. However, it’s unlikely the village will receive a viable proposal so late in the process. “It’s something we need to check off from a compliance standpoint,” Greifer said. “We’re doing an RFQ to get, early on, competing proposals. It’s a more meaningful, helpful process.”

Local firm helps Hauser club plant garden

Native plants to help establish butterfly ‘way station’ By BOB SKOLNIK Contributing Reporter

There will be lots of pollination going on in front of Hauser Junior High School in the future. That’s thanks to a new garden that students planted in front of the school last week. With help from Lupfer Landscaping, owned by Riverside resident Tom Lupfer, seven Hauser students and four Lupfer employees planted a cross-pollinating garden in front of the school at 65 Woodside Road. The students are members of the Roots & Shoots Club, a local chapter of the organization founded by noted primatologist Jane Goodall to foster environmental awareness among young people throughout the world. Hauser’s Roots & Shoots Club was founded this year by seventh-grade English teacher Patrick McAndrew, who learned about the club while teaching in Nepal. When McAndrew was looking for a project for the new club, Hauser Assistant Principal Christine Mullin suggested planting a garden. The 12 students in the club decided that was a good idea and set about making it happen. “It really contributes to the community and

I just felt that the space in front of the school was just wasting away,” said eighth-grader Moncerrat Tirado. “A garden was better and more beneficial for the environment.” The students received a $200 grant from the Jane Goodall Foundation and then raised another $400 by hosting a movie night at Hauser. Last month some students from the club appeared on a panel during the One Earth Film Festival held at the Thatcher Woods Forest Preserve in River Forest. One woman in the audience was so impressed by the students’ presentation that when it was over she walked up to them and gave them $100. The students then wrote a letter to Lupfer Landscaping asking for help. Lupfer, whose firm donated plants and manpower to create a garden at Blythe Park School last year, provided the services of his firm free of charge. He supplied more than 100 plants for the garden and a few employees to help with the work. “It’s always nice to give back to your town,” said Lupfer, who also serves as a Riverside Township trustee. Lupfer also volunteered his expertise last year to help the Riverside Parks and Recre-

He also explained the chemistry and engineering of the garden to the students. On May 11, the students and few Lupfer employees planted the garden. “It feels nice that our dream is coming to life and we did it,” said Hauser eighth-grader Krysta Pelayo, her hands blackened by the soil. The club will use the $700 they raised to buy a boulder and commemorative plaque to be placed at the front of the garden. Students were concerned that other students would

not respect the garden and trample the plants by walking or running through it, so Lupfer designed a stone walkway through the garden. The garden is planted with a variety of hardy native plants that will attract butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. “We want to attract all those creatures, because they will help pollinate other plants in the area and increase the amount of green that we have in our environment,” McAndrew said. The garden will be classified as an official Monarch butterfly way station. The plants won’t crowd each other out and don’t need much long-term maintenance, Lupfer said.

D103 board rehires connected auditing firm Not enough time to search for new firm this year, say members

By BOB SKOLNIK Contributing Reporter

Despite the misgivings of some board members, the Lyons School District 103 Board of Education voted 4 to 1 on May 14 to rehire a politically connected auditing firm for another year at a price of $36,000. Board member Joanne Schaeffer cast the only vote against hiring GW & Associates, which was first hired by the district in the fall of 2016 when the school board was controlled by members elected with the help of Lyons Village President Christopher Getty. “I voted against them when they were hired, because they’re politically connected,” Schaeffer said. GW & Associates was founded by David Gonzalez, the mayor of Chicago Heights.

The firm has made $12,300 in political contributions dating back to 2015 according to state records. Some of that money went to the political funds of Getty and to the campaign fund of part-time District 103 Assistant Superintendent Kyle Hastings, who also serves as the mayor of Orland Hills. GW & Associates has contributed $1,000 to Citizens for Christopher Getty since it was hired by District 103. The firm also does auditing work for the village of Lyons. GW & Associates has also donated $500 to Getty’s United Citizens Party since 2016. GW & Associates has contributed $1,200 to Citizens for Kyle Hastings since 2015. During the public comment portion of Monday’s school board meeting Earl Johnson, the husband of school board member Shannon Johnson, implored the board not to rehire the firm, pointing to a 2016 story

by the Better Government Association and Chicago Sun-Times, which detailed the political connections of the firm. But Shannon Johnson ultimately voted to rehire GW & Associates after saying she did not like having the firm working for District 103. “I just think that we have to hold our district to a moral standard, and I don’t think this company fits that moral standard,” Shannon Johnson said. “I think ethics are just as important as doing a good job.” After board members met in closed session, Johnson ultimately voted to rehire GW & Associates for one more year, saying that it was too late to hire a new firm to do this year’s audit. “I know that we need the audit done in time and that’s what’s important,” Johnson said after the meeting. “But it doesn’t

mean we will have the same auditing firm [next year].” Board President Marge Hubacek also voted to rehire GW & Associates after hearing from Business Manager Sherry Whitaker and Accounts Payable Clerk Loretta Kray that the firm did competent and timely work for the district. “The auditors did the job that auditors do,” Whitaker said at Monday’s school board meeting in response to a question from Hubacek. “They got the audit in on time. I didn’t see anything that was weird.” Hubacek said it was too late to look for a new auditing firm to do this year’s audit. “Do I think they were brought in politically, and do I think they have a connection? Yes,” said Hubacek. “But our audit is due now, there were no negatives, they did an OK job.”

Opportunity knocks

N

orth Riverside’s union firefighters recently won a battle they may not have thought they’d ever have a chance to fight when the village quietly rolled out a request for applications to build a new hiring list for the department. For the first time, the village is asking that candidates be firefighter/paramedics, not just firefighters. The resulting list of candidates will all have the ability to do both jobs. And with a fire department stacked with employees approaching or with more than 20 years of service, it’s more than likely that throughout the next decade the North Riverside Fire Department will be staffed entirely by fulltime firefighter/paramedics. Which leads to the obvious question: If the department is going to be staffed entirely by firefighter/paramedics, will there be a need in the future for the village to employ a private paramedic service? Mayor Hubert Hermanek Jr. isn’t convinced, because he doesn’t want to add any more full-time firefighters, and their pensions, to the village’s budget. The firefighters’ union has proposed using part-time paramedics – hired by the village and not through a private company – as a solution to that problem, one they say has been employed effectively by the Bensenville Fire Protection District. That appears to be a reasonable enough solution to explore further. But the village has long asked for firefighters to give way on something called “substitution,” where officials see another way to save money. Essentially, the way it works now is that two people per shift are allowed to be off at the same time – allowing for sick days, vacation time, etc. When that happens now, the village must call back a union firefighter to cover the shift, resulting in overtime costs that are astronomical – in recent years a half-million dollars or more. The village would like just one person per shift to be able to call off and for paid-on-call firefighters to be used as substitutes. This has been a non-starter for the firefighters’ union in the past. It’s a foot in the door to greater use of non-union employees in union positions. But there’s a reality here that needs to be faced by everyone. The firefighters’ union has won its fight for preservation in the face of the village’s attempt to privatize it. It has won so soundly that the village is, without even being forced to, recruiting firefighter/paramedics to fill its fulltime ranks. Costs for salaries and pensions are real issues for North Riverside, particularly in an environment when its salestax lifeline appears to be under attack, with the loss of Carson’s, Toys R Us and Tony’s Finer Foods in just a matter of weeks or months. A state arbitrator will eventually settle the dispute that hardened in the wake of the 2014 privatization bid. But a new contract will need to be negotiated soon after, and both sides need to approach those discussion with a sense of financial reality as well as fairness – most of all to residents, who both rely on firefighters and paramedics, and also help pay the bill.

Safety and freedom are not mutually exclusive

O

n March 14, students at Riverside-Brookfield High School walked out. We spoke against the very real and very terrifying epidemic of gun violence in this country. Our administration at RBHS, as well as many members of our community, supported our activism and we are infinitely grateful to be able to feel like our voices were heard. But that is not enough. Not only has our fight just begun, it is far from over. As students, we are the voice of change. Our generation has grown up in a society where it is normal to turn on the television and see shooting coverage. For so long, our predecessors have shielded their eyes, drowned out the pleas of survivors and activists, and neglected underrepresented people still affected by this issue. We think, as a country that prides itself on so much, it is shameful that we seem so indifferent to mass violence that can be quite easily deterred. However, we are more active, informed, and powerful than ever before. This walkout was our response to the frustration built up by continuously seeing the same things happening, and nothing getting done. We will not let anyone silence us or dismiss as “too young” or “too naïve.” We are the leaders of the movement that is turning the tide in this country, and we have a responsibility to keep making waves. Gun violence continues to be normalized in our society as legislators and gun activists defend weapons used for carnage, claiming a movement centered around safety is an attack on 2nd Amendment rights. Our movement is not about taking away freedoms or attacking rights. Safety and freedom are not mutually exclusive. We believe in the right for us, as students, to feel secure when we go to school. Our focus should be on learning, not whether or not our lives will be threatened that day. We have a strong belief that this country can be improved without fighting violence with violence. Freedom to us is also not being fearful that your teacher will soon be armed in the classroom, permanently altering student-teacher relationships by bring-

ing life and death into our learning environment. Children and students like us all over the nation now have that fear ingrained into them and that, to us, is not free. As well as continuing the fight for increased gun control, another responsibility of our movement is to make sure to represent everyone. We, as a nation, cannot pick and choose who to care about when it comes to gun violence. A black child in the city who dies from a stray bullet should have just as many people rallying behind their life as a white child from the suburbs who dies in a school shooting. We are not making enough of a difference if we are not making a difference for everyone. We, the students of Riverside-Brookfield High School, urge our community to join us and make this movement stronger. To further action and awareness in our school, we are in the midst of starting an equality and activism group for the next school year with ties to organizations like Students Demand Action and Women’s March. The power is in our hands, as members of a constantly changing society, to be active and stay active. Join us in writing and speaking to our senators and representatives about gun control, voting, walking out, organizing or joining activist groups in our schools and communities, making our students feel safe, honoring the victims of gun violence in not only school shootings, but in every situation where underrepresented victims don’t get the justice they deserve and staying informed to keep this movement alive. We cannot let those who want to politicize this issue sway or divide us. We cannot shy away from communication. We must use this momentum to definitively change our society. We cannot wait, we cannot hold back, we cannot shove this issue under the rug as others have done in the past. We, together, are creating our own future, and we are just getting started.

Action needed on opioid crisis During my career in law enforcement, I’ve seen a lot of people in crisis. But none of that has prepared me for the scope of what we’re now experiencing with the opioid addiction crisis. I’m especially concerned about the harm it is causing across generations. Here in Illinois, opioid overdose deaths grew by 76 percent from 2013 to 2016, and the rate of babies born with opioid withdrawal increased 53 percent from 2011 to 2016. This is a crisis that knows no zip code. In suburban Cook County, 340 people died of opioid overdoses in 2016 -- up from 221 deaths the year before. Young children living with teens and adults who are

abusing opioids and/or other drugs are at greater risk for abuse, neglect, and other traumas. There is growing recognition that these Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) can have profound consequences for young children. ACES often bring intolerable stress that impairs development of children’s brains and immune systems. But they can also affect health and productivity throughout life. One study found kids who experienced more than four of these childhood traumas were three times more See LETTERS on page 15

2018 INFLATION ADJUSTMENTS FOR TAX PROVISIONS

T

he IRS has announced the 2018 inflation adjustments for many tax provisions, including exemptions for estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer taxes and the annual exclusion amount for gifts. The 2018 estate and gift tax “exemption” will be $5,600,000, up from $5,490,000 for 2017. This is the total amount that can pass free from estate tax on death and/or from gift tax during life. The same exemption amount is used for generation-skipping transfer taxes. It allows parents to create trusts for children and future generations that avoid estate tax at all generations. When used with the gift/estate tax exemption, a parent can remove $5,600,000 from his or her estate (or $11,200,000 from a married couple’s estate) and all growth thereafter and none of it will ever be exposed to estate tax while held in trust (under current law).

The gift tax annual exclusion amount increased to $15,000 from $14,000, where it has been since 2013. This is the amount that each person can give to another person without using any of the above-described gift and estate tax exemption. Payments of tuition to schools and medical expenses to health care providers do not count against either the $15,000 annual gift tax exclusion or the $5,600,000 gift and estate tax exemption.

No injuries in Riverside head-on crash A 22-year-old Berwyn woman escaped serious injury despite a 2017 Jeep Latitude striking her smaller 2014 Hyundai Accent head-on, reportedly at a high rate of speed, at Bloomingbank and Burling Roads on May 11 at about 9:10 p.m. Both vehicles sustained heavy front-end damage, said police, and the 23-year-old woman at the wheel of the Jeep was charged with drunken driving and other traffic offenses. A witness to the crash reportedly told police that he was following the Jeep northbound on Joliet Avenue. After crossing the bridge, according to police, the Jeep veered into the oncoming lane of traffic and blew through the stop sign at Bloomingbank Road. Instead of continuing east on Burling Road, the Jeep went the wrong way down Bloomingbank and slammed into the victim’s vehicle, which was westbound on the one-way street, next to the commuter parking lot. According to police, a portable breath test indicated that the Jeep’s driver had a bloodalcohol content of .240, which is three times the legal limit of .08. She was transported to Loyola University Medical Center to submit a blood and urine sample. In addition to driving under the influence of alcohol, the driver of the Jeep was cited for improper lane usage, driving in the wrong lane, speeding and having no proof of vehicle insurance.

Mall business burglarized The owner of a North Riverside Park Mall business called police on the morning of May 13 to report that sometime during the overnight hours someone had broken in and removed about $4,500 in merchandise. The business, Buckle Up, is located in a kiosk at the mall and was covered with a tarp after it closed at about 8:50 p.m. on May 12. The next morning, the owner noticed the tarp had been ripped open and multiple stainless-steel necklaces, pendants and silver earrings were missing. A review of surveillance video was inconclusive, police reported.

Brookfield business targeted Brookfield police responded to Kago Landscaping, 9000 31st St., on the morning of May 8 after the owner called to report that about 1,600 pounds of scrap lawnmower motor parts and two wheelbarrows were missing from the property. The motor parts had been piled on the east side of the property, according to police, while the wheelbarrows had been on the north side. The property’s estimated value was about $860.

Car strikes tree A 54-year-old Berwyn woman whose Acura TL barreled into a tree in the 3500 block of Harlem Avenue on May 13 at about 10:15 a.m. told police she was “really tired” after not getting a good night’s sleep the night before. The woman told police she must have fallen asleep at the wheel while southbound on Harlem Avenue and that the impact of the crash woke her up. Witnesses told police the vehicle suddenly swerved to the right, jumped the curb and hit the tree. Paramedics transported the woman to a hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries. Police cited her for improper operation of a motor vehicle, damage to village property and having no proof of vehicle insurance.

Lawnmower stolen A resident of the 3500 block of Sunnyside Avenue, Brookfield, contacted police on the morning of May 11 to report that someone had stolen his lawnmower, which had been left outside on the apron of his garage, off the alley, the previous day. The victim said he forgot he’d left the lawnmower there while doing yardwork and that when he went outside to resume the job the next day, the lawnmower, valued at about $300, was no longer there.

Student charged for possessing knife Riverside police charged a 15-year-old boy with unlawful use of a weapon after officials found a utility knife in his backpack on the morning of May 7. According to police, the boy had been dropped off for school and then left the school grounds a short time later. The police report states that if a child leaves school and returns, policy calls for backpacks to be searched. When asked if he had anything he shouldn’t in his backpack, the boy reportedly admitted having a knife, described by police as a Milwaukee Fastback utility knife, for protection and a small amount of cannabis. In addition to the weapons charge, the boy was cited for possession of cannabis and truancy. These items were obtained from police reports filed by the Riverside, North Riverside and Brookfield police departments, May 7 to May 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.

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 students’ concerns about their identity are not a barrier to reaching out. The clinician’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.

Rev. James T. O’Connor, pastor emeritus of St. Hugh Parish in Lyons, died on April 27, 2018. He would have turned 90 years old on June 10. Born in 1928 in Chicago, he attended St. Francis Xavier School in LaGrange and Quigley Preparatory Seminary. He earned a master’s degree at the University of St. Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary in 1953. After ordination to priesthood, Father O’Connor served the archdiocese as assistant pastor at Resurrection Parish on Jackson Street in Chicago, St. Francis de Sales Parish on Ewing Avenue in Chicago, Divine Savior Parish in Norridge and St. James Parish in Maywood.

In 1994, he was bestowed the title of pastor emeritus. Rev. John Finnegan, pastor emeritus

Eugene G. Schroeder, 88, of North Riverside, died May 8, 2018. He was a man of many talents that he freely shared with those around him. He especially enjoyed the restoration of antique automobiles. Mr. Schroeder was a member of the Model T Ford Club and truly enjoyed the friends he made who shared this same passion. Mr. Schroeder was a man with an easy smile, a positive attitude toward people and life, and he enjoyed all that life offered and even an occasional corny joke. He was a retired sergeant with the Illinois National Guard with nearly 30 years of service. He was the husband of the late Lynette (nee Hanley); the father of William, Jeffrey (Ann), Janice (Thomas) McCarthy and Gail (Jeff) Mikyska; the grandfather of 13; and the great-grandfather of three.

gether to reduce the availability of illegal drugs, and give law enforcement the resources we need to address the many problems the epidemic brings to our communities. But we also need solutions that bring healing and hope to hundreds of thousands of vulnerable children. As a recent report from Fight Crime: Invest in Kids points out, one such proven program is voluntary home visiting, in which nurses or other

trained professionals coach at-risk parents during pregnancy or during the first three years of a child’s life. In the short-term, these programs can help addicted parents beat their addictions by connecting them with treatment. Longterm, home visiting is proven to reduce children’s exposure to Adverse Childhood Experiences. A study of one notable program showed that it reduced incidents of child abuse and neglect by half.

Bulldogs’ Cermak leads by example Illinois State recruit is an elite pitcher and reliable shortstop By MARTY FARMER

T

Sports Editor

he scouting report on RiversideBrookfield junior Ryan Cermak is that his statistics speak louder than his words. When interviewed, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound Riverside resident tends to give concise yet insightful responses. Since his baseball resume speaks for itself, his economy of words and calm demeanor actually complement his leadership. In terms of stats, Cermak is hitting .403 with a .446 on-base percentage and a .681 slugging percentage. He has hit a home run, four triples and nine doubles with 25 RBIs and 22 runs scored. For all his prowess at the plate, Cermak is even better as the Bulldogs’ ace of the pitching rotation. Facing 188 batters over 46.2 innings, Cermak has not allowed an earned run. That’s not a typo. The hard-throwing righty has not given up a single earned run and only six unearned runs overall. He has a 0.00 ERA with 81 strikeouts and 18 walks plus a .879 WHIP. Cermak is holding hitters to a .140 batting average. “Ryan’s physical impact on the game on the mound and at the plate are obvious keys to our success,” RBHS coach Dallas Till said. “We have a chance to compete with and potentially beat anyone we play when he pitches. “His humble demeanor and leadership qualities have been equally as important to our team morale, cohesion and success,” Till added. “Ryan leads by example and respects the game. He always does the right thing on and off the field.” Along with leadership from seniors like Jarod Turina, John Kosner and Howie Hatton, Cermak has played a major role in the Bulldogs’ success this spring. “A lot of us are really good friends who have been playing together since we were little,” Cermak said. “Every day we all want to get better and win the next game.” Mission accomplished in that regard. RBHS is 22-4 with a 15-2 record in the Metro Suburban Blue. Currently, The Bulldogs are on an 11-game winning streak and the cusp of clinching a conference championship. “We currently control our own destiny in terms of the conference championship with two games to play against Wheaton Academy,” Till said.” If we win one of the two games, we are outright champions. If we lose both, Illiana Christian would win the conference title.”

RBHS junior pitcher/shortstop Ryan Cermak is having a superb season. He’s 5-1 with 0.00 ERA and 81 strikeouts in 46.2 innings of work. Offensively, Cermak is hitting a .403 with 25 RBI’s. There’s a good chance Cermak will pitch one of the games against Wheaton Academy. After all, he’s been the Bulldogs’ go-to guy all season. For all of his success, Cermak keeps baseball simple in terms of his approach. “When I’m hitting, I just want to get runners over and get them in,” he said. “Defensively, I think to myself nothing is getting by me. As far as pitching, my approach depends on the batter. If he’s crowding the plate I’ll throw in; if he’s backed off the plate, I’ll throw junk outside.” Of course, his approach works so well because of his talent. Cermak throws three plus pitches, including a fastball (about 90 miles per hour), curveball and changeup. His baseball ability and intangibles have attracted college programs. Cermak ended the recruiting process early when he committed to Illinois State University.

“Ryan has the potential to be a standout at the next level,” Till said. “I’m pretty sure he will end up pitching for them but that will be a decision the staff at ISU has to make. Ryan is capable of contributing as a position player as well, so I will be interested to see how things play out for him in college.” During the offseason, Cermak plays travel baseball with the Illinois Hawks and Cangelosi Sparks. At RBHS, Cermak is a multi-sport athlete. Last winter, he played on the basketball team which finished 19-11 and 10-2 as cochampions in the Metro Suburban Conference Blue Division. “I love the coaches, players and playing basketball at RB,” Cermak said. “It’s a great environment because everybody is so competitive.” Looking ahead to the Class 4A baseball state playoffs, the Bulldogs are the sixth

seed in the St. Laurence Sectional. The sectional is stacked with highly-regarded Chicago Catholic League teams like the host Vikings, Brother Rice, Mount Carmel and St. Rita. West Suburban Silver power Lyons Township is seeded third. The Bulldogs begin the playoffs against the winner of Kenwood/Proviso East on Thursday, May 24 (4:30 p.m.) in the semifinals of the Mount Carmel Regional. With a win, RBHS will likely face the host Caravan in the regional final on Saturday, May 26 at 11 a.m. “Our success can largely be attributed to all of our guys accepting their roles and making the most of opportunities when they arise,” Till said. “We have had multiple guys admirably fill in at different positions and various spots in the batting order. Our guys have been unselfish in regards to playing time and have supported whatever the team needs.”

RBHS girls notch historic water polo season Under Fridrych’s guidance, Bulldogs win 23 matches in best-season ever

By MARTY FARMER Sports Editor

With 10 state championships won, Fenwick High School is the standard in girls water polo. While neither Riverside-Brookfield nor any other girls water polo team may ever match that accomplishment, the Bulldogs got a first-hand look at the mighty Friars in the semifinals of the York Sectional. Fenwick defeated RBHS 17-4 en route to winning the York Sectional. Millie Sheean scored a match-high five goals and had five steals for the Friars. Kassy Rodriguez (3 goals, 3 steals) and Molly McGuire (3 goals, 3 assists) also led Fenwick. Despite that loss, RBHS (23-8) recorded its best season in program history under thirdyear head coach Todd Fridrych. After a 3-3 start, the Bulldogs won 20 of 25 matches highlighted by an 11-match winning streak. Additionally, the team won the Elk Grove Tournament and its own invite title, and placed third at the Hinsdale Central Invite. Prior to this season, the Bulldogs never finished above .500 and went 11-18 last year. “The biggest reason for the turnaround was the amount of water polo our girls

Sophomore Marty Lanigan placed 11th in parallel bars (8.70) and finished 26th in all-around at 49.70.

ping stats and leadership. Wandel-Marrello had 312 saves and 52 assists in the cage, while Bruno scored 89 goals with 60 assists and 152 steals. Harazin had 65 goals, 21 assists and 31 steals. “Our three best players this season statistically were Tatum Bruno, Leah Harazin and Chloe Wandel-Marrello,” Fridrych said. “Tatum broke the single-season record for goals and has the most steals in school history. Chloe Wandel-Marrello was fabulous. Leah had the second most goals on the team.” Seniors Alyssa Schwarz (28 goals, 67 steals), Michaela Espisito (37 goals, 31 steals), and junior Michelle Jacobs (38 assists, 48 steals) also played key roles in the Bulldogs’ success. Several other juniors, including Abby Regan, Shea Connelly, Veronica Cariveau and Sarah Pilewski showed tremendous improvement over the course of the season. “They will be the players the team leans on next season,” Fridrych said. “They were equivalent in their statistics and prowess. We have a great core group of girls returning next season. The nucleus has an abundance of playing time and should be a very formidable team.”
