Woodstock’s city property tax bill is expected to increase overall next year if the City Council gives final approval to its estimated tax levy. e council approved a resolution Nov. 5 estimating the 2014-15 fiscal year property tax levy at $9.4 million, an increase of $400,000 — or 4.5 percent — over its final collections last year. If approved, the tax rate will rise from about 1.87 percent to about 2.14 percent. Across Woodstock, equalized assessed values are expected to drop by an average of about 8 percent, but a rising tax rate means residents who see their home values reduced by that average or less will likely pay more in city property taxes. Under the proposed tax plan, the owner of a home that was valued at $200,000 last year will pay $49 more in taxes, even if the house’s value is reduced to $184,000 in accordance with the average drop in property values.

Wormley named Champion of Youth By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent With an agricultural upbringing, Woodstock Independent publisher Cheryl Wormley learned the value of family and fellowship to be able to thrive. As a mother and grandmother, developing a kinship with children and providing them with meaningful opportunities came naturally. Because of her commitment to serving youth in many capacities, the Blackhawk Area Council Boy Scouts of America named Wormley the Champion of Youth at its McHenry County Distinguished Citizens Banquet Nov. 6. “I’m pleased that it brings to the attention of the public the importance of providing meaningful opportunities for children and youth,” Wormley said. As a volunteer and supporter of several youth organizations including Boy Scouts, 4-H, First Presbyterian Church and the Challenger Learning Center, Wormley said she loves seeing children’s

At the award banquet, youth leaders, friends and family members recounted Wormley’s positive impact on youth in a video compilation. “She really wants the youth to be the forefront of the community,” said Janine Heidtke, McHenry County 4-H program coordinator. Challenger Executive Director Chantel Madson said in the video she was thankful for Wormley’s support and genuine care for the program, which focuses on developing and educating youth for the future. “Mom got behind the mission … no pun intended,” said Wormley’s son and Independent co-owner Paul Wormley. Cheryl Wormley said she enjoys participating and interacting with youth because it “keeps a person young and having fun.”

By requiring special-use permits, members of the public also could weigh in on their locations. “By Woodstock adopting this law, it gives us a little more local input as to what’s allowed,” said Jim Kastner, Woodstock’s planning and zoning administrator. “A special-use permit gives the public an opportunity to comment on it as well.” Illinois approved the use of medical marijuana in August, when Gov. Pat Quinn signed the pilot program into law. e act outlines specific conditions that allow a person to use marijuana as part of his or her treatment and requires patients to have a prescription from a doctor, among other restrictions. Also included in the law are limits on the number and locations of cultivation centers and dispensaries throughout Illinois. Twenty-two marijuana growing areas — one per state police district — will be permitted in the state. McHenry County sits within District 2, which also includes Lake, DeKalb, Kane and DuPage counties. Sixty dispensaries, which will sell medical marijuana to registered patients, will be permitted to open throughout the state. “We expect dispensaries will tend to be in areas of higher population,” said Kastner, who also said the city has not

Medical marijuana in Illinois Illinois is one of 21 states and the District of Columbia to have approved the use of medical marijuana by people with specific diseases or chronic conditions, including cancer, glaucoma, AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Patients, who must be older than the age of 18 and registered with the state, are permitted to buy up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana every two weeks from registered dispensaries. e Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act was signed into law by Gov. Pat Quinn Aug. 1 and goes into effect Jan. 1, 2014, although it could take between four and six months before people in Illinois can obtain medical marijuana because the state has not finished finalizing some procedures. Under the program, registered patients cannot face state prosecution for the use or possession of medical marijuana; however, patients and their caregivers are not permitted to grow their own marijuana. In addition, because it is a four-year pilot program, legal use of medical marijuana can be eliminated after the trial run if it is not renewed by lawmakers. — Katelyn Stanek, The Independent received inquiries from anyone looking to open a cultivation center or dispensary in Woodstock. Under the city’s proposal, an indoor cultivation center (the only type allowed by Illinois law) would have to be placed in an area zoned for agriculture or light or heavy manufacturing. Dispensaries could be located in service and retail, general business or shopping center districts, but could not open in the city’s downtown area, where residential spaces also are permitted. According to state law, a dispensary cannot be located within 1,000 feet of a home, among other

Plans are brewing for beer festival By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent Plans to host the first Woodstock Ale Fest are brewing. e Woodstock Chamber of Commerce & Industry along with Adult & Child erapy Services for McHenry County hope to generate interest for the October 2014 festival with a kickoff event from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29, in front of the Chamber, 136 Cass Street. “e goal is really to generate interest in the Ale Festival overall,” said John Buckley, ACTS executive director. “We’ll invite our friends, our donors, members, potential sponsors to come and get a flavor of what the Woodstock Ale Fest will be.” e kickoff event will be during the Lighting of the Square, but open to only advance ticket holders. Buckley said tickets and information will be available at the chamber office until Wednesday, Nov. 27. Buckley said the idea for an ale festival came from the need to generate revenue to support the two

organizations and a desire to bring a unique event to the area. “ere’s nothing like this in McHenry County, and there’s really not anything like this anywhere nearby,” Buckley said. “While there’s a lot of interest in beer fests, there are not a lot of beer festivals like this locally.” At its Nov. 5 meeting, the City Council approved plans for the Woodstock Ale Fest to be held from 1 to 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014, at the city-owned lot at the corner of Bartlett and Clay streets. Buckley said the goal is to have 80 to 100 different beers from about 50 vendors from across the country.

Director of development joins community foundation By KATELYN STANEK The Independent e McHenry County Community Foundation, 101 S. Benton St., has hired its first director of development. Meg LaMonica, Crystal Lake, was associate director of the nonprofit Senior Services Associates Inc. for five years before joining the foundation, which raises capital to create a permanent endowment to help fund area nonprofits and other related organizations that are meeting the Meg changing needs LaMonica and interests of the people of McHenry County. Her position is new to the foundation, which is placing a greater emphasis on fundraising activities. “My job is to try to reach different levels of commitment,” LaMonica said. “I think people hear the word ‘foundation’ and they think, ‘Oh, I don’t have a million dollars to give.’ But it doesn’t have to be like that. I think it’s a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community you’re a part of.” “I’m so excited to have someone on board who has the energy and the knowledge to bring to the table,” said Robin Doeden, MCCF executive director. LaMonica said she hopes to introduce a variety of fundraising options for the foundation while also highlighting the different groups supported by MCCF grants. “I hope I can help spread the word about the foundation and positively talk up all the agencies and grantees,” she said. “I think that’s important for the community to know that we’re here for them.” For LaMonica, her years working with community groups is something that comes naturally, she said. “I was always taught that your job

should be more than a job. It should have a meaning to you and a higher purpose. … It’s how I was raised.”

Participants will buy a ticket for fifteen 3-ounce servings of a variety of popular, unique and even rare craft beers. A craft beer aficionado with 10 years of event-coordinating experience, Buckley said he estimates the festival will draw around 2,000 people and said it will be a good marketing opportunity for local breweries. Chamber Executive Director Shari Gray, whose husband is a home brewer

and daughter works in marketing for Goose Island Brew Pubs, said as the craft beer industry evolves, she is seeing more women attending similar events. “Beer drinking is so stereotypical of men; it’s a man’s drink,” Gray said. “But when you go to these beer festivals and you see the number of women that also like beer, it’s pretty astounding. I think that’s because beer has come a long way. ere are so many choices.”

WL posts signs boasting smoke-free parks By SANDY KUCHARSKI The Independent A $10,000 grant administered through the McHenry County Department of Health has enabled the village of Wonder Lake to erect new signs in six of the village’s parks declaring the parks smoke free. Each year the MCDH receives state funds from the American Legacy Foundation, smoking settlements from

the four largest tobacco companies that were negotiated 15 years ago with the intention of creating anti-smoking campaigns. is year’s project was to make signage to deter smoking. According to Wonder Lake village trustee Larry Reinhard, when MCDH advertised the grant was available, the village responded. “is was a once-ina-lifetime opportunity,” Reinhard said. e village had to agree to make the parks smoke free – an easy decision. A

village ordinance was passed banning smoking in the parks. Reinhard explained the objective is not to ticket people. “Our objective,” he said, “is to promote healthy living, especially in parks where there are children present.” e design of the signs was up to the village to determine. Instead of going with the standard “no smoking” signs, the trustees chose the wording: “Proud to be Smoke Free!” Reinhard said the

village hasn’t received any complaints on the new ordinance, and he added, “Everyone loves the signs. It’s a positive message.” ere are four large redwood signs along with smaller addendums to some existing signs. With the extra space at the top of the large signs, Reinhard chose to add historical or geological information. e new sign in Jacobson Park includes historical information about Boones Mill, a mill that was located on the site of the park in the mid-1800s. At Kames Edge Park in East Wonder Lake, the new sign illustrates how a glacier created the kame. All the signs include the slogan, “Proud to be Smoke Free!”

How much is too much? e city of Woodstock’s ownership of the Courthouse building on the Square was never going to be an easy — or cheap — task. But when the Woodstock City Council voted in 2011 to take over the deed to the building, it did so with the assurance that the Courthouse soon would be turned over to a private buyer who would make many of the repairs — repairs that were desperately needed for a crumbling building that had a flock of pigeons making up the majority of its tenants. But when the City Council voted to approve a bevy of expensive repairs to the roof and dome of the building listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it seemed to betray that promise. Early estimates of the cost of repairing the Courthouse’s roof — no doubt an important part of the renovation process — had come in at $432,500, a hefty sum that took up a huge chunk of the $2 million the city had first predicted it would spend on repairs to the building. But at its Oct. 15 meeting, plans were approved for a copper roof and dome at a cost totaling $775,250 — an increase of nearly 80 percent over initial projections. It’s worth noting that officials have consistently asserted that the city’s primary objective in taking ownership of the Courthouse was to fix it up before turning it over to private investors, even after it was revealed they were considering longterm ownership strategies should plans to sell the building take longer than anticipated. In a scenario in which the building was sold by the city, the buyer’s expenses were expected to total about $2.5 million in repair costs. So if this is the case — if the city is just a caretaker owner priming the property for a quick sale to a person or business who will have to make even more repairs — why is such expensive work being performed as part of the building’s renovation plans? Could materials less expensive than copper have been used on the roof and dome, even if critical repairs had to be undertaken, thereby leaving a new buyer with the option to invest in ornamental renovations? If not — if the only possible way to rehabilitate the building was with a roof costing more than three-quarters of a million dollars — what other surprises await Woodstock’s taxpayers when it comes to the Courthouse? Woodstock’s motto is “True to its past … Confident of its future.” at’s an admirable sentiment. But in the case of the Courthouse, each mounting expense makes it appear that the city is more concerned with its history than its future, more at ease with worrying about a building than a balance sheet. It’s a risky and expensive maneuver, and it doesn’t inspire confidence.

Thank you, Jack Franks, for same-sex marriage vote On Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013, Rep. Jack Franks stood in front of the Illinois House and publicly declared his commitment to equality and justice for all of the citizens of Illinois. He declared that “equality before the law is not just a vague promise on a 220-yearold piece of parchment sitting in a museum in Washington. It is a sacred trust that men and women have worked, fought and died for, and it is still worth fighting for.” On behalf of the parents, families and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, we declare our deepest gratitude and appreciation for the courage of Jack Franks in voting for a piece of legislation that will allow our son to stand side-by-side with his two brothers, with the ability to enter into the most profound of

Leaders: Step up and reform pensions I am writing to comment on the disgraceful level of inaction on public-sector pension reform during the Illinois General Assembly’s first week of veto session. e fact that our state’s legislature went so far as to cancel one of only six days during which they will meet this fall says a great deal about how we are all being failed by most of our leaders in the capitol. I say most because state Rep. Jack Franks has been on the

right side of this issue from the beginning, and he should be commended for that. During the spring session, Franks was a constant voice reminding other legislators that pension reform is without question the most important issue facing our state and that to focus on anything else is foolhardy at best and negligent at worst. He said exactly the same thing at a town hall event in September, while also reminding a questioner that this crisis is not the fault of retired public-sector employees and, in fact, pension reform legislation will protect the promises made to those retirees. Our state badly needs leaders right now to step up and work for the good of the state, without worrying about their next election. Franks’ willingness to take a tough vote is an example I wish the hesitant legislators in Springfield would follow. Lorraine Murphy, Wonder Lake

INDE THOUGHT Woodstock’s Phoenix Woodworking won a 2013 Business Champion Award at the McHenry County Economic Development Corporation’s annual dinner Nov. 5. The business, which makes cabinetry, furniture, custom millwork and other products at its facility on Duncan Place,

was recognized for having “positively contributed to McHenry County’s economy.” We congratulate Phoenix Woodworking and its employees. Woodstock and the wider community throughout the county benefit from small businesses like Phoenix.

Happiness: a product of meaningful opportunities Every once in awhile, the planets align and present an obvious topic for this column. Such an alignment took place over the last couple of weeks. It began as I listened to a webcast of the Stanford University homecoming symposium. e topic was happiness. My dominant takeaway from the panel discussion by four Stanford professors and department heads was that happiness is the product of meaningful actions and opportunities. For days, I thought and talked about the connection between happiness and meaningful opportunities. Looking back, most of my thoughts centered on children and youth. Making their children happy seems the quest of most parents and grandparents. e operative word is making, which implies somehow providing happiness as one would food and clothing. e reality is adults can’t make children happy, certainly not by showering them with material possessions or nonstop activities. A child’s happiness is gained from experiencing meaningful opportunities and being in meaningful relationships. Fast forward to this week. e Blackhawk Area Boy Scout Council

held its seventh annual Distinguished Citizens Dinner. e culmination of each of the dinners is the naming of a Champion of Youth. is year, I was asked to accept the Cheryl recognition. Being center stage is not Wormley my cup of tea. Yet, Declarations I’m all about putting children and youth in the spotlight. I saw the award as an opportunity to shine much needed light on them. e dinner Wednesday night was a delight. Scouts, some of whom are members of the Woodstock Police Explorer Post, opened the doors at Boulder Ridge Country Club for more than 150 guests. Scouts participated in the Presentation of the Colors and led the Pledge of Allegiance, and they joined the adult guests for dinner. eir presence added signiďŹ cance and meaning. I had the opportunity to say a few words. I spoke of the importance of providing children and youth with

meaningful opportunities. In addition, I suggested the assembled schedule a monthly “children and youth� reminder on their smartphone calendars. I challenged them to use the reminder to do something especially meaningful for the children in their lives, to thank a youth leader or to send a donation to a youth organization or cause. e next morning, I picked up two grandchildren for a two-day, two-night stay. Auggie, 5, Anna, 4, and I enjoyed a variety of what I hope were meaningful experiences. We picked up brightly colored leaves to decorate placemats we created using construction paper and Con-Tact paper. We raked leaves into a big pile. en we jumped and rolled in it. We cooked, read books, sang songs, laughed, giggled and went for walks. We ate meals together and played Legos. e Veterans Day assembly at Northwood Middle School reinforced the value of meaningful experiences, too. Being with Auggie and Anna meant I missed it, but the photos and comments on e Woodstock Independent Facebook page attest to it being a meaningful experience for all who attended – students, teachers,

“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it is too dark to read.â€? – Groucho Marx is is my all-time favorite Groucho quote, both because it epitomizes his wit and air for language and because I think it is undeniably true and insightful. Certainly it resonates with me. In an era of rapid technological transformations and diversifying news and entertainment options, books remain my most common, and favorite, recreational and informational activity. And the cold, rainy weather this fall has certainly provided plenty of time to curl up and read a good book. Libraries have changed dramatically in the last 40 years, as have our entire world and society. e Woodstock Public Library now stocks DVDs and video games, provides wired and

wireless computer access, schedules numerous technology programs and presentations, and makes eBooks and other downloadable content available Nick just like our print Weber materials. All of those things Check It Out are important — they broaden the inuence and importance of the library, and they provide opportunities and access to many in the community with no other options. But books are still the backbone, and I would say soul, of libraries. ey are still our largest collection and still our most popular resource. Some technology folks ďŹ nd this surprising and backwards. I do not. Books are simply wonderful. ey are portable, durable, self-contained portals to ‌ everything. Literally. Physics, dragons, backyard chicken raising, chemistry, life on distant

veterans and community members. e number and ages of the grandchildren increased over the weekend. Calvin, Cameron and J.T., all 11, and Reagan, 8, joined my husband, Jim, and me Saturday and Sunday afternoons and nights. In order to be meaningful, the degree and complexity of the activities changed, too. Cooking with J.T. and Calvin meant ďŹ nding recipes on the Internet. eir beer-battered, butteried jumbo shrimp were delicious. e quartet’s late Sunday afternoon walk with us covered more than 2 miles of the Geneva Lake path and culminated with dinner at Gordy’s in Fontana. We found we could separate the 11-yearolds from their iPhones by joining them in the pursuit of meaningful opportunities. It’s trite but true: children are our greatest resource and our future. It behooves all adults to enrich that resource, safeguard the future and sew the seeds of happiness by providing meaningful opportunities for our children and youth.

planets, dog training, the Civil War, how to write a resumÊ, time travel, comedies, tragedies, melodramas ‌ the list goes on and on. All available in books, which makes the public library the gateway to everything in all those books. e portal to all those portals. To everything. Overstated? Maybe a little — no library has every book on every topic. Indeed, in 2009 more than a million new books were published in the U.S. alone. But with our ability to share materials between other public libraries, we can and do provide an amazing selection of books to our community. So, if you are a bibliophile, do not fear for your beloved books. And if you are a technophile, I encourage you to take another look at books. ey have the world’s least complicated operating system — simply open and start reading, then share with anyone anytime. ey are durable, do not require electricity, are extremely portable and store easily. Plus, they smell good.

Education Middle schools debut orchestra programs Music program expands as orchestra students enter middle school By ELIZABETH HARMON The Independent e Creekside Middle School orchestra’s first-ever performance marks an important milestone in the development of its musicians, said orchestra instructor Lyndra Tingley. “What’s significant is that, before, they’ve played at most two parts, melody and harmony, but now we have different

[instrument] sections playing different parts,” she said. “Putting it all together sounds really cool, but it’s a lot harder.” e concert, held Nov. 12 at Creekside, featured the 27-member orchestra, performing group and solo selections on violins, violas, cellos and bass violins. Group pieces included “Bass in Space,” featuring the bass violinists and one student playing piano; “Sword Dance,” which the students performed from memory; “Medieval Knights;” and the “Ukrainian Bell Carol.” “It’s not really the holiday season yet, but our next concert isn’t until February and

they really love this piece,” Tingley said. e final selection, “Finlandia,” showcased vibrato, an advanced technique the students have been working on this fall. “It’s a wobbling of the hand which adds an interesting sound to the music, but is hard to do,” Tingley said. e Creekside students are one of two middle school orchestras in Woodstock School District 200. e other, at Northwood Middle School, is directed by orchestra instructor Becky Blaho and performed its fall concert earlier this month. e Northwood Orchestra also is comprised of sixth-graders, who were part

of the initial class of 170 students who signed up for the orchestra program when it began in the fall of 2011. ough only about 50 of the inaugural class remain in the program, the orchestra continues to grow, as each year new students enroll. Currently, there are about 330 fourth- through sixthgraders enrolled. Tingley also teaches at Dean, Olson and Prairiewood elementary schools. Blaho also teaches at Mary Endres, Westwood and Greenwood elementary schools. Students take part in weekly in-school stringed instrument lessons and afterschool re-

hearsals every other week. Next year, the program “rolls up” to eighth-grade and a new class of fourth-graders will be added. Eventually, the program will extend into high school. Tingley said to her knowledge, District 200 is the only McHenry County public school district offering an orchestra program. e middle school orchestras will perform again in February, and in May, the elementary and middle school orchestras will perform together. Also in May, the students will take a field trip to Chicago to see the Chicago Symphony Orchestra perform a children’s concert.

Signing lines up with Ravens vs. Bears By LISA KUCHARKI The Independent His book may be about the Baltimore Ravens, but author Dean Smith has written a story that “appeals to any football fan.” “Never Easy, Never Pretty,” a book about the Ravens’ Super Bowl XLVII win, chronicles the rollercoaster season, features interviews with players, broadcasters and executives, and shows how a football team becomes part of a community. He includes quotes and interviews from individuals like Joe Flacco, Ray Lewis, Art Donovan, Kevin Byrne, Steve Bisciotti and Ozzie Newsome. Smith will premiere his book at a signing at Read Between the Lynes Bookstore from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16. Smith’s book is right at home in Woodstock, where his mother – Dona Lowrimore – lives and fellow Baltimore Ravens fans, the Lynes family, own a bookstore, Smith said he timed the book signing with the matchup of the Ravens vs. the Chicago

Bears at Soldier Field the following day. “I thought that would be great. We could have a party for the book, we could go to the game on Sunday, and that’s how that sort of happened,” Smith said. “e owners of Read Between the Lynes Bookstore are from the Baltimore area and are Ravens fans. at turned out to be just a huge coincidence.” Bookstore owner Arlene Lynes said, as a fellow Raven’s fan and former Baltimore resident, she didn’t mind hosting a signing. “Because I grew up in northern New Jersey, I would say I’m a Giants fan, a Ravens fan and a Bears fan,” Lynes said. “Wherever I live, I sort of follow the team.” Lynes also said she has an interesting history with the team. While she was catering for an event at a private home in Baltimore in 1996, she said she and her husband were given strict instructions not to enter the dining room after serving dinner. “It turned out, it was a meeting about when the [Cleveland] Browns were bringing the team to Baltimore, which would

‘The Nerd’ offers generous servings of laughter Laughter and good times are necessary components of the holiday season. You can be sure you’ll get your share by going to see “e Nerd,” which opened at the Woodstock Opera House Nov. 8. Presented by the Lisa TownSquare PlayKelly ers, directed by Roger Zawacki and Arts Review produced by Carrie McDonald, it’s a fun show. e entertainment begins in Terre Haute, Ind., when budding architect Willum Cubbert, played by Tim Vance, opens Pandora’s Box by leaving an unrestricted invitation to his birthday party on his telephone answering machine. One unexpected result is an acceptance by Willum’s ex-army buddy Rick Steadman (Jim Pierce), who just happened to have saved his life during the war in Vietnam. Based on Willum’s pledge to be eternally grateful, Steadman comes to the party and forgets to leave for a matter of months and totally establishes himself as the resident nerd. e other birthday party guests immediately pick up on that designation. Jeff Cook as Axel Hammond and Karen Jorgenson as Tansy McGinnis are old friends of Willum’s who planned the party. e party is rounded out by a business associate, Warnock Waldgrave

(Paul Lockwood), his wife Clelia (Odette Little) and their “adorable” son or, played by Lars Burke. Little or manages to serve as a major pain in the neck, until he is upstaged by the arrival of Rick the Nerd. From then on, there is no contest. For the most part, this play does not rely on subtle humor. ere are some lines you have to listen for in the first act as Axel’s humor demonstrates a direct relationship to how many cocktails he has consumed. But other than that, you can just sit back and enjoy the unavoidable laughs. ere is a tendency to feel a little bit bad as one derives so much enjoyment from the cast’s angst. But the entertainment value soon helps you get over it. And the fantastic plots to drive Rick away are classic. Although the cast is relatively small, the actors show great depth and cohesion. ere was only one set, but it attended to detail and was efficiently and unobtrusively changed when necessary. e lighting was excellent as was the sound — especially when cute little or locked himself in the bedroom. e whole effort is well worth going to see. In order to attract more families, TSP has offered a new ticket price of $13 for young people 13 years of age and younger. is would make a fabulous family outing that — although it might offer the children some creative behavior alternatives — would definitely ensure plenty of laughter going into the holidays. “e Nerd” continues weekends at the Woodstock Opera until Nov. 24. For tickets or information, call the box office at 815-338-5300. Laura Witlox is manager of group sales at the McHenry County Convention & Visitors Bureau.

BOOK SIGNING Where: Read Between the Lynes, 129 W. Van Buren St. When: 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16 essentially be the Baltimore Ravens.” Art Modell, owner of the Cleveland Browns, was planning to move the franchise to Baltimore but had to leave the name and colors in Cleveland and form a new expansion team, the Ravens. Smith’s Ravens fandom began at age 7 when he carried football equipment at a practice for Baltimore Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas. Aside from being a fan, Smith also has been in the action for several years with former offensive lineman for the Chicago Bears Bob Wetoska in a seriously competitive, annual game of twohand-touch on anksgiving morning. Smith’s brother, Brendan, played football with Wetoska’s son, Steve, at Loyola Academy in Wilmette. Each year since 1974, the Wetoska family and recruits square off against the Craddock family and its re-

cruits in a private “Turkey Bowl” at the A.C. Nielsen Sports Complex in Winnetka. e winner receives a ceramic turkey. Although Wetoska – former blocker for Brian Piccolo - has retired from the Turkey Bowl, Smith said he still comes out to coach and often dons his No. 63 Bears jersey. “He presides over the game with a very stern presence, meaning, if you make a mistake, like I did a couple years ago, he’d let you know about it,” Smith said. “It’s like a real football game. It’s two-hand touch, but it gets beyond that.” Smith majored in English at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Aside from his latest book, Smith contributed to the second edition of Ted Patterson’s “Football in Baltimore.” Patterson writes sports for e Baltimore Brew and Press Box publications. Smith has published a book of poems called “American Boy” which won the 2000 Washington Writer’s Prize and was awarded the Maryland Prize for Literature the following year.

Singers seek support for senior serenade Dickens Carollers start Indiegogo fundraising campaign By SANDY KUCHARSKI The Independent

e Dickens Carollers, a professional ensemble that performs live Christmas music throughout the Chicagoland area, is currently conducting a fundraising drive to raise money to bring their performance to four nursing homes in McHenry County, including Valley Hi and the residents of Hearthstone Manor in Woodstock.

Filetti. e Dickens Carollers perform holiday tunes in colorful, Victorian costumes. eir catalog features 75 Christmas carols and holiday songs from around the world, from medieval to the present. roughout their 30year history they have booked singing engagements throughout the Chicago suburbs. e online fund drive will close on Monday, Dec. 2. Any dollar amount will be accepted. ere are perks for various contribution levels including holiday ringtone downloads and CD. If they collect more than their goal, they will add performers, extend performance time and possibly even add performances. “We feel like nursing homes are lonely places,” said Filetti. “A lot of people there need something to cheer them up. We feel like we help bring back some happy memories for them.”

Movie theater construction progress delayed By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent Although the large auditorium at Woodstock Classic Cinemas will open Christmas Day, late steel deliveries are delaying the completion of the restoration and remodeling. Mark Mazrimas, marketing manager at Classic Cinemas, said steel for the large auditorium’s infrastructure was delivered about two weeks late. “It puts us on a tight schedule, because without the steel, it delays everything that has to be done after,” he said.“ose are kind of the snags you run into with construction, and things you sometimes can’t foresee. Flexibility is the key word.” Mazrimas said he hoped to have the large auditorium open for the premier of “e Hunger Games: Catching Fire”

on Nov. 22 to accommodate the large crowds expected for the event, but he will have to make due with the theater’s other auditoriums until Christmas. He said the large auditorium will open Christmas Day, without an unveiling event, to take in four new movie releases and allowing patrons to enjoy the theater for the holiday. “We had some plans to unveil the new, big auditorium and do an event, but it looks like, right now, those are on the back burner,” Mazrimas said. “As we get closer to Christmas Day, it’s a very busy season and what we’re really going to need to do is get the auditoriums open and operating for the public so that they can see movies.” Mazrimas said the main concession stand and ticket lobby should be finished by January 2014, followed by a

grand-opening celebration. General manager Mike Wozny said the setbacks are challenging, but the construction crew is working hard to make up for lost time. He said he’s pleased with the progress of the dome restoration. e dome has been painted gold with accent lighting, surrounded by decorative elements and a navy blue ceiling. Aside from completing the large auditorium and main lobby, Wozny said the last projects will be to complete the parking lot in the back of the theater, put final touches on the exterior facade and take down the temporary walls, ticket counter and concession stand. “I hope everyone understands,” Wozny said. “is is all just temporary. It will be good when it gets done, and we appreciate everybody putting up with our dust.”

At Veterans Day celebration, a living memorial By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent As Northwood Middle School students, veterans and members of the public poured into the gymnasium for the school’s 13th annual Veterans Day assembly Nov. 7, a living memorial took center stage.

For several weeks, students prepared for the event. ey created a giant ag made entirely of hand cutouts. e orchestra performed the national anthem and the choir honored the veterans with patriotic songs. School custodian and Vietnam veteran Barry Mishler was the keynote speaker.

Watling said that the team’s habit of playing from behind cost them as well. “Unfortunately, we have this habit of continually getting down and fighting back and that’s great for so long,” Watling said. “Eventually, you get to that point where you can’t fight back any more. ere’s just only so much you can do, and [Payton] is one of those teams that saw that and took advantage of that.” Watling said she will miss her seniors who are the last players remaining from the 2011 state team. “ey did a great job stepping up when they needed to and leaving their mark on this team because we are so young,” Watling said. “ose three seniors all knew what is was like to play for a state championship. ey were able to take that and show the kids and really step up in big games when we needed them. … I told them they left a mark. ... You still made the final eight, and we kept the tradition alive. ey have a lot to be proud of.” Taylor, who will play volleyball in college, said her team left it all out on the floor. “We went on the court, and it didn’t really matter, win or lose, as long as we had fun,” Taylor said. “We played our hardest. … at’s why I am not upset. We’re going to miss each other, but we worked our hardest and they outplayed us. Congratulations to them, and I hope they take it all the way, but its mainly my teammates I am going to miss a lot.” Senior Hannah Davis, who will play volleyball at Ohio Northern University, said she will miss her teammates as well. “I’ve made some of my best friends

here,” Davis said. “My best friend is on the team, and I would consider every single person on the team my best friends. [e friendships] are probably my favorite part of the program.” Marian finished the season 23-17. “I told the girls it was a phenomenal year,” Watling said and noted the team greatly surpassed her expectations. “[Finishing in the top eight] wasn’t even a goal for us.” “is was probably one of the closestknit teams I have every had,” Watling said. “ey truly loved each other and, so I think, that helped create that spark in us.”

To see now that he does belong will help him moving forward.” WHS freshman Kate Jacobs finished 31st with a time of 18:22, and McCulley said Jacobs had a tremendous season. “She came in and made a huge improvement from the start of the season,” McCulley said. “A lot of it was realizing her talent, and a lot of it was the hard work she put in. She has a very bright future.”

Marian Central Freshman Abigail Jones finished 37th in the IHSA Class A meet with a time of 18:41.

» SWIMMING IHSA SECTIONAL

Co-op swim team has dreams of state By JAY SCHULZ The Independent e Woodstock co-op girls swim team has been preparing for this week all season. e IHSA sectional meet will be held Saturday, Nov. 16, and the team is hoping to qualify several swimmers for the state meet. “We’ve compared their times to last year and all of them are at their best times if not better and that was before we started tapering,” said head coach Renee Walker. “Most of them are in really good shape, especially my sophomore class, which has a bunch of really strong swimmers.” e sophomores include Tess Devinger, Lizzy Kruse, Gianna McGuire and Katie Ferguson. “It’s going to be hard,” said Walker. “Illinois is very fast. It may not be this year, but we still have two years [with these sophomores] after that.” Devinger is close to qualifying in two events, the 200-yard individual medley and 100 breaststroke. “I’m feeling really strong,” Devinger said. “We’ve been tapering, and I feel really good in practice. I feel really good physically and mentally.” Walker noted the team was just starting to taper and that the FVC meet was the first true test of where the swimmers’ times are. “ey’ve been working really, really hard this whole season,” Walker said.

“Even two weeks ago, they were all complaining that they were very tired and sore. I’ve explained to them that you swim tired and the sore is good, You are still building up muscle. I’ve been telling them to trust me and, as soon as they start resting, they will be surprised about how much better they will feel.” Kruse and senior Alli DeWane will compete in the 100 freestyle. McGuire and DeWane will compete in the 50 free. e team’s 200 IM relay, made up of Kruse, Devinger, McGuire and DeWane, is about seven seconds off of the state qualifying time. “I’m hoping we can get a state time or break a record for our school,” said Kruse, who also is on the 200 free relay team. “We’ve got to keep working hard and continue to work on technique, stroke and power. I really think we will do well at sectionals.” Walker said to help her swimmers achieve their goals, she wanted them to be able to visualize them. To that end, she had her swimmers make their own posters with their events and the times they need to qualify.

Shortly into the second half, the Broncos scored again. A blocked extra point attempt encouraged the ’Canes. On their next drive, junior Jordan Niemeyer (2-22), senior Brett Olson (4-50) and senior Ephraim Lee (3-25 receiving; 11-36 rushing) chipped in a reception each to help Marian achieve three first downs. e progress did not last long. A Bronco picked off a pass and returned the interception 20 yards. e ’Canes scored their only touchdown on a 15-yard pass from Bahl to Niemeyer in the fourth quarter. “We battled to the end,” said senior Tom Klinger (1-25), who unleashed a fury on defense covering Montini’s receivers. “Some teams would have just given up and not gotten that score, but that’s not the way Marian plays football.” Marian will graduate 16 seniors this year, including Lee who amassed 163 carries for 1,033 yards this season. Brucker looks forward to returning several underclassmen who contributed to Marian’s qualifying for the playoffs, which continued the school’s postseason presence for the fifth consecutive year. “It just depends how hard they want to work in the offseason,” said Brucker. “e Montinis and the Mt. Carmels of the world are going to be working.”

IHSA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP

Beatties earn all-state honors WHS’ Maura Beattie takes fifth, Luke Beattie finishes 21st at state By JAY SCHULZ The Independent Four runners from Woodstock area high schools competed in the IHSA state cross-country meet Nov. 9 at Detweiller Park, in Peoria, and two runners returned to Woodstock with all-state honors. Woodstock High School Senior Maura Beattie finished fifth with a time of 17 minutes, 30 seconds. Her brother, sophomore Luke Beattie, finished 21st with a time of 15:21. Both earned all-state honors. “Maura had a good day,” said WHS head coach Matt McCulley. “e girl that won got off from the gun and separated right away. e four [runners] that beat her were very strong. ere’s nothing for her to be upset about. She had some great competition and competed very well with them.” Beattie, who earned her third all-state honor, said she was pleased with how she competed at the state meet every time. “I’m really happy with myself that I was able to come each time and run strong there and finish well,” she said. “When I finished, I realized this would be the last time I would run at Detweiller Park ever in high school. It was kind of different knowing it would be my last race ever there.” Luke Beattie was about 45th after the first half mile and was about 26th in the last half mile. “I felt like I raced really well,” he said. “I went out fast like I needed to but not too fast. … In the last half mile I was 26th, and I knew I had at least one person to catch and then hold my ground to get my goal of all-state.” Maura Beattie had the opportunity to cheer her brother on. “I was running around cheering for him, and, as I was running, I was count-

e Marian Central Catholic High School girls volleyball team came close to its third trip to the IHSA state tournament in the last four years, battling Chicago’s Walter Payton College Prep Nov. 9 in the IHSA Class 3A supersectional tournament at Antioch High School. e match was tied after two games, with Payton winning the first game 25-23 and Marian winning the second 25-22. e Lady ’Canes had the momentum half way through the final game, but Payton was able to grab it away to win 25-21. In the first game, it was evident the Lady ’Canes were nervous, playing most of the game from behind. With the score 18-24, senior Frankie Taylor won five service points to almost bring the Lady ’Canes all the way back to tie the score. Marian head coach Laura Watling said she was surprised her players came out nervous. “I wasn’t expecting that because they were very loose on the bus,” Watling said. “I think once they got on the gym floor something stopped them from going as hard as they could have.” Marian took control in game 2 and led throughout most of it. In the third game, the Lady ’Canes took the early lead and looked like they might run away with the game. Payton fought back to make it a onepoint game at 15-14. e next point for the Lady ’Canes looked like it might swing the momentum back to them. In a long rally, Taylor and senior Bethany Bucci had one-armed saves and sophomore Rachel Giustino had a kill to give the Lady ’Canes a 16-14 lead. Payton, however, would not back down and took the lead for good at 21-20. With only three seniors playing this season, Watling said that the team’s experience level showed at the end. “I feel like the youth and inexperience for a lot of the girls showed up,” Watling said. “You can’t just rely on one or two players when you go against a good team, and I think we were trying to do that too much. When you are up against a team like Payton it’s going to come back and bite you.” Please see Volleyball, Page 22
