Sixteen teachers released by District 200 Board cites drop in enrollment as the reason for eliminating positions By ELIZABETH HARMON The Independent

Hospital-McHenry in July. Centegra President and Chief Operating Officer Jason Sciarro said the move comes

Sixteen teachers were dismissed by Woodstock School District 200 in a move officials said is a response to shrinking enrollment. A drop in student enrollment was cited as the reason the staff members — who held an equivalent of 6 1/2 fulltime positions — were released from the district. e cuts were approved at the school board’s March 11 meeting. “We hate to cut anyone, but we have no choice,” Superintendent Ellyn Wrzeski said. “We don’t know why enrollment is down. We want to watch and see if the drop continues and is a sign of decreasing enrollment, as other schools have experienced.” Kindergarten enrollment for the upcoming school year is down by 85 students. ough enrollment fluctuates from year to year, Wrzeski expressed concern over the largerthan-expected drop. “To be safe, we’ve dropped three kindergarten positions,” she said. Because the teachers who held the positions had high seniority, one was moved to teaching prekindergarten and another into an elementary teaching position. e third teacher is retiring. ough new Illinois laws allow higher-seniority teachers with evaluation scores of two or below to be dismissed ahead of lower-seniority colleagues with better ratings, when the teachers are of equal rating, seniority is the deciding factor. “If there’s nothing in their record to distinguish them from someone else, we use seniority,” Wrzeski said. Board member Carl Gilmore asked if the reductions would cause any programs to be eliminated. Wrzeski assured him it would not. In bilingual prekindergarten,

HAHS horses take part in the Illinois Horse Fair By SANDY KUCHARSKI The Independent Four rescue horses got the chance of their lifetimes when they were chosen for the Heartland Horseman’s Challenge during the Illinois Horse Fair March 7 to 9 at the Illinois State Fairgrounds, Springfield. Several months ago the organizers of the Illinois Horse Fair were brainstorming ideas for the upcoming fair. Competitions pitting several horse trainers against one another to break young horses for riding or train wild

mustangs to accept various obstacles were common, but they came up with a new twist for the event. e Heartland Horseman’s Challenge was developed as a judged competition that stretched over the three days of the Illinois Horse Fair. Four horsemen were given the opportunity to choose a rescue horse to work with during three roundpen sessions, finishing with a freestyle ride and challenge course during which they could showcase their horses’ talents. e horses would be available for adoption at the conclusion of the event. Woodstock-based Hooved Animal Humane Society was chosen to provide the rescue horses. Tracy McGonigle, executive director, saw the possibilities. “I thought it would be a great opportunity for our horses to get some training and a lot of exposure,” McGonigle said.

A CUT FOR A CAUSE

Teachers Continued from Page 1 two teachers who do not have state-required Spanish-language certifications are being shifted into monolingual prekindergarten programs, displacing two lower seniority prekindergarten teachers. Another released prekindergarten teacher holds a part-time position in the tuition program. “Not enough students have enrolled, but if we have 20 more enroll, we will add the position back,” Wrzeski said. At the elementary level, five lowseniority teachers were dismissed. One was let go to make room for the surplus kindergarten teacher, while another was dismissed to make room for a higher-seniority teacher returning from family leave. Two were released because of lower enrollment. “We have about 60 fewer kindergartners moving into first grade,” Wrzeski said. e fifth was released because of the need to shift another higher-seniority teacher into an elementary position due to program restructuring. Creekside Middle School also will see a drop in enrollment, but Northwood Middle School’s enrollment is increasing. While a few positions were added at Northwood and also at the high school level, they are being filled by higher-seniority teachers displaced by enrollment shifts. Wrzeski said the staff members affected had been informed of the elimination of their positions. “All the teachers have been notified,” Wrzeski said. “We’ve let them know ahead of time, and tried to do it in person as much as possible.” She added that a number of the dismissed teachers could be recalled if vacancies and enrollment warrant it.

He said the health system hopes eventually to open a 24/7 neonatology service in McHenry for sick infants. In addition, all elective total hip and knee surgeries will move to McHenry. Centegra currently offers behavioral

health, hospice and sub-acute rehabilitation services at its facility on South Street, but Sciarro said the upcoming consolidation, which will free up room at its Doty Road campus, means the health system will have to consider how to utilize the aging building that once housed Memorial Hospital. “It’s really tough from a facilities standpoint to keep that building running efficiently,” he said. Sciarro said hospital administrators have not made a decision on the future of the South Street building and said no changes have been made to the services currently offered there.

Collins: To people, a hero. To government, a pain A late environmental advocate is remembered for her fighting spirit By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent An advocate for the environment, a watchdog for residents and a protector of the county’s water and other natural resources, Woodstock’s Jane Collins left a legacy in the community and with local government. ough she lost her fight with pancreatic cancer March 1, at age 73, she won important crusades that led to conservation in the county and inspired others to take action. “To the people, she was a hero,” said Susan Eyre, a close friend of Collins. “To the government, she was … a pain in the keister,” her husband, Rich, finished. e couple, co-owners of Rich’s Foxwillow Pines Nursery, McConnell Road, met Collins as members of the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County. Collins and her husband, John, had a 10acre property with animals of all kinds. She was one of the first in the area to plant a prairie plot in her front yard. e Eyres grew to love and respect Collins and her passion for the environment. As plans for subdivisions materialized in their area in the ’80s, Collins met with the Eyres to monitor the plans for building and zoning and safeguard the area’s landscape, watersheds and safety. She represented them and others before the

city zoning and planning commission. “Jane taught us how to ask hard questions,” Susan Eyre said. Susan Eyre said Collins rarely missed a county board or city council meeting that dealt with developments or environmental impact. She said Collins researched and learned as much as she could about the area, laws and regulations to protect the land. e Eyres learned from her and they began attending meetings to learn what to look for. “We had no agenda, we just wanted to make sure everything was fair,” Rich Eyre said. “We just wanted a quality project next door,” Susan Eyre added. e Eyres said Collins was persistent in prodding attorneys and developers for answers, but she was never confrontational. To supply herself with more ammunition, Collins went to law school at age 55. “When the developers and attorneys talked down to her, she got so mad that she went to Northern Illinois Law School and got her degree in environmental and zoning law,” Susan Eyre said. “en she could speak with more conviction.” Collins then became an almost limitless resource for people in the county. Susan Eyre said Collins was crucial in helping with projects like inspiring a gravel pit petition by a community of neighbors on Franklinville Road, preserving almost 2,000 acres of land with conservation easements through e Land Conservancy – an organization she helped bring to life in 1991 – and raising awareness for conserving water in the county through a referendum she put on the ballot for a

water authority in 2007. e Eyres said Collins served on McHenry County’s 2010 development plan committee in the ’90s. ough she did not agree with some large developments, Collins was in support of quality development that could help the local community. However, Susan Eyre said Collins was frustrated with the lack of transparency of some county entities in regard to development and other decisions. She would try to help candidates who would represent people in the entire community, and she frequently sought information by employing the Freedom of Information Act. “When she decided to look into a situation and find out all that she could about it, she hit a lot of brick walls,” Susan Eyre said. Nancy Schietzelt, president of the Environmental Defenders, said despite roadblocks, Collins’ persistence helped immensely in obtaining information for the Defenders’ water resources protection committee. “She was kind of the FOIA queen of the county,” Schietzelt said. “She knew how to get information. She was not only helpful that way, but to any organization she worked with.” Schietzelt said Collins worked very closely with the water resources protection committee and served as the committee secretary, working with watershed planning and river cleanups through the Fox River and Kishwaukee River Ecosystem partnerships. Before Collins became ill last summer,

THERE HE IS, MR. WNHS ...

Schietzelt said she was working with the committee to go through the county’s entire unified development ordinance, looking for ways to strengthen it for watershed and agricultural land protection, and anything that would help preserve the county’s resources. She said the planning and development committee and the zoning board of appeals for the county agreed to several of the changes Collins helped the organization develop and suggest. “I’ll certainly miss her, because Jane, of course, was always at those meetings as well,” she said. “She made it a point to be out and about and be where she needed to be to protect and maintain our environment. She was always such a pleasant person to work with and really kept conservation for the county and the people in the forefront. Some people will start working for a cause and then wear out on in, Jane never wore out.” Lisa Haderlein, e Land Conservancy of McHenry County executive director, said Collins’ help allowed TLC to gain invaluable information to help preserve thousands of acres of land in the county. She said because of Collins’ research, private land owners could take charge of the development around their land and give more people a say in controling how development would happen in the future. “I wish I had more opportunities to work with her,” Haderlein said. “ere’s no one to fill her shoes. It’s Jane and people like Jane that truly make McHenry County a great place.”

Possibly armed man prompts reverse 911 call to many Woodstock residents By KATELYN STANEK The Independent Police said they are investigating an incident that prompted a reverse 911 call to many Woodstock residents last week. e Woodstock Police Department received a call regarding a “suspicious person” in the 300 block of Bunker

Avenue at 8:52 p.m. March 13, according to a press release. ey were told a white male, about 30 years old, had left a home on Bunker Avenue with several firearms. e family of the man, whose name has not been released, told police he had been drinking alcohol that night and said he was wandering through the neighborhood with the weapons, according to the

statement. Residents in the area were informed of the situation via a reverse 911 call that asked them to call the WPD if they saw the man. Police said the man eventually called his family from a cell phone at Raffel Road and Route 120. His family members were able to pick him up in that area.

According to the release, officers made contact with the organizers of a bingo event being held at Marian Central Catholic High School that night, advising them of the situation. Police remained in the area of the event until it ended. e WPD said it is investigating to determine if it will press charges against the man.

heart. When my husband gives me a back rub, I’m like, ‘Yeah, a little bit to the left.’ But if some random man comes up to me, I wouldn’t be too sure about accepting that back rub. You’ve got to start connecting with [the horses] and build that relationship.” At first the crowd was quiet out of respect for the difficulties the trainers faced in working with the obviously nervous horses, but eventually the contestants encouraged the crowd to cheer and applaud, another step in desensitizing their horses. “It’s really neat to see the different styles and different techniques of all the trainers,” said McGonigle. “e trainers seem excited about working with rescue horses. You don’t know how they’ve been damaged. You have to assess the horse and build a new relationship, and it’s a little different than working with ones that have a clean slate. ese horses don’t have a clean slate.” e culmination of the event was a freestyle performance where each trainer had the opportunity to show off the horse’s new skills. ey also rode through the challenge course, consisting of trail obstacles and required maneuvers. Based on the judges’ score, a winner was chosen. Jud Carter, DeWitt, chose to work with

Sweet Brown, a 5-year-old bay quarter horse mare that came to HAHS after she was found running at large, apparently set free by her owners who didn’t want her or could no longer afford to care for her - an all-too-common occurrence the last several years. DeWitt said the day he started working with her she had an unsureness about her with everything, especially when he tried to saddle her. But the pair made tremendous progress over the three days, and after the final performance, he was declared the winner. “I didn’t think of it as a competition,” he said. “I just went in there and had a fun time with my horse until they gave me a belt buckle.” He said the best part of the weekend for him was at the end of the morning session on day three when Sweet Brown accepted a drink of water from him, showing him that she was relaxed and truly comfortable around him. Jodi Funk, owner and trainer at Diamond Acres in Woodstock, was one of the four judges for the event. She said, “ It was great that the horse fair made this about horses in Illinois and set out to help rescue horses.” She added, “It would be neat if other fairs would pick up on this too.” As a local trainer, Funk has had

the opportunity to work with several HAHS horses, helping with training and evaluations, and she said she felt especially honored to be part of the event. HAHS currently houses 63 rescued, abandoned and surrendered horses. Of the animals available for adoption, lack of training is the primary shortcoming. Although some people adopt a horse strictly as a pasture pal, a companion animal for a horse they already have, most people are looking for a riding horse. “We are 10 times more likely to adopt out a horse that is rideable,” said McGonigle. Two of the participating trainers applied to adopt the horses they worked with, and HAHS is processing adoption applications for two more of the horses that were hauled to the horse fair. McGonigle enjoyed watching the horses she’d come to know at HAHS. “I pretty much knew what each horse would do,” she said. “I felt like a proud mommy!” Reflecting on the event, McGonigle said, “It was a win-win situation for everybody. I didn’t care who won. ey’re all winning, because they’re getting training and exposure. e whole goal is to get them adopted along with their friends back at the farm.”

e HAHS staff chose eight horses of various ages and breeds as good candidates and arranged to have them hauled 225 miles to Springfield. e trainers, two men and two women, each chose a horse they wanted to use for the competition, and the training sessions began. e four horses that were not chosen remained on display for the duration of the horse fair where potential adopters could see them. For three days the trainers worked with their selected horses during 1- to 1-1/2–hour timed sessions, in what could be described as a four-ring circus. Each trainer had a 60-foot round pen set up inside the larger show ring in the fairground coliseum. Crowds filled the grandstand seating to watch the training sessions, while four judges scored the trainers on how they handled the various challenges each faced. e trainers started out with ground work, unmounted handling of the horses without restraint or with just a halter and lead rope.

Let the sun shine in Newspapers are often the biggest boosters of Sunshine Week, the annual initiative to promote efforts to keep government open and make our freedom of information laws more robust. But the push to shed light on public documents and meetings — which runs from March 16 to 22 this year — is about more than ensuring reporters have the right to pore over dodgy budgets and contentious email exchanges obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests. Sunshine Week’s mantra, “Open government is good government,” is a truism most everyone can get behind. When we, the people, have access to public documents and the right to see our government’s business conducted in public, we benefit from the ability to hold our elected officials accountable. It’s fitting, then, that this is the week we profile the so-called “FOIA Queen,” Jane Collins, a Woodstock woman who recently passed away. Collins, an ardent advocate for environmental responsibility and natural resources, was well-known by many governing bodies for her tendency to ask tough questions and dig through the documents and bits of legislation others missed. ose who knew her said Collins rarely skipped a public hearing or meeting that dealt with housing developments or environmental concerns and said she consistently armed herself with information that would aid in the fight to protect McHenry County’s ecosystem. Collins and those who helped her were more than thorns in the side of zoning boards. eir efforts had real consequences for McHenry County, inspiring public action against certain construction, preserving thousands of acres of open land and bringing to the fore a discussion about transparency in local government. For Collins, access to public documents meant access to vital information that leveled the playing field for citizens who petitioned their government. For others, it might mean a chance to see where their tax dollars are really going. Whatever the reason, Sunshine Week serves as a reminder that all of us — residents, reporters and government officials alike — should remain committed to keeping our public records and hearings open. After all, we all benefit from good government — and the best government is an open government.

Slow down and give pedestrians space

To the numerous cars, including the hearse, that almost ran me and my dog over as we were running recently: If you are annoyed by runners and walkers in the streets, get the city of Woodstock to pass an ordinance to force people to keep their sidewalks clear. Sadly, even many of the walkways owned by the city are not plowed or shoveled. Besides the streets, there are no safe places outside for people to walk and run in the winter. Flying by us only 6 inches away is hardly yielding to pedestrians. Slow down and give us space - it is the law!

A law that won’t pass the buck — and a lesson for leaders

As a parent and grandparent, I was sickened when I learned about the actions which prompted Woodstock Police Sergeant Chip Amati’s suspension and even more so by the apparent desire of most local leaders to pass the blame to the next elected official. State Rep. Jack Franks and Undersheriff Andrew Zinke are a welcome and needed exception to

this pattern. While recent meetings at city hall have seen city of Woodstock officials lay the blame for Sgt. Amati’s continued employment at the feet of the police disciplinary board, the State’s Attorney and even the state legislature, Franks and Zinke have proposed a common-sense solution without attempting to scapegoat anyone. I believe Woodstock’s elected leaders need to take a lesson from Franks and Zinke here and focus not on reapportioning blame away from themselves, or trying to whitewash our memories, but on working constructively to keep our communities safe going forward.

Looking back has advantages I admire newspaper columnists of old who wrote a daily column. I am in awe of their creativeness in raising a topic each and every day. I am charged with coming up with a column topic just once a week, and there are weeks when my deadline is fast approaching and I am totally lacking inspiration. Such was my lot this week. Sunday night when son Ryan and his family were gathered around our dining room table, as is our custom Sunday nights, I asked the grandchildren to suggest topics. Cameron, who was eating the strawberry and blueberry trie her mom made for dessert, suggested I write about it. I thanked her, agreeing it truly was delicious, but asking what else I could write about the trie. We agreed it wouldn’t ďŹ ll the space allotted. Sometimes I gain inspiration from columns I wrote for the same week in years past.

Update: Eileen continues as Cheryl the public relations Wormley associate at OWC, and we meet for Declarations lunch several times a year. e corresponding week in 2007, I wrote about Woodstock being chosen as one of America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. My concern and that of others was what Woodstock needed to do to be ready to welcome visitors drawn to our town by the designation. Update: I still believe we should do more to welcome visitors. In late March 2008, “Declarations� highlighted the Illinois Bureau of Tourism’s seven wonders of Illinois – one each for the state’s seven regions. ey were/are: Wrigley Field, Chicago; Baha’i House of Worship, Wilmette; Starved Rock State Park, Utica; Allerton

Park and Retreat Center, Monticello; Blackhawk State Historic Site, Rock Island; Rend Lake, Whittington; and the Meeting of the Great Rivers Scenic Byway, Alton, Grafton, Elsah and Hartford. Update: e seven wonders are very much worth visiting in 2014. “Declarationsâ€? the third week of March 2009 was the third and ďŹ nal in a series to identify the worst road or street in e Independent’s coverage area. Davis Road received the most nominations. I invited everyone who nominated Davis Road to stop by e Independent ofďŹ ce to pick up a prize – an Independent coffee mug. Update: is winter was hard on streets and roads, too. Another contest might be fun. A year later, in 2010, “Declarationsâ€? featured our town being in the news again. Chicago Magazine’s Dennis Rodkin listed Woodstock in his “20 Great Towns and Neighborhoods.â€? Rodkin didn’t rank the 10 city neighborhoods and 10 suburban communities. Other suburban communities included Wilmette, Western Springs, Oak Park, Orland Park and Frankfort. In addition, Golf Magazine ranked Woodstock Country Club’s 9-hole golf course one of the top

25 in the nation. Update: Why does it take outsiders to remind us we live in a very special community? In 2011, I reminded readers to wear purple March 26 to increase awareness of epilepsy. e wear-purple movement was started in 2008 by 9-year-old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia. Her goal was for people with epilepsy everywhere to know they aren’t alone. Update: Purple Day 2014 is March 26. Finally, in 2012, “Declarations’� headline was “80-degree days set records.� Yes, just two years ago, we had had three 80-plus degree days by the third week of March. Tom Skilling, WGN meteorologist, reported high temperatures in Chicago of 81 March 14 and 82 March 16 and 17. e daffodils and magnolias had faded and the tulips and red buds were past their prime. Update: My daffodils are buried under a foot of snow. And Woodstock Willie’s prognostication missed the mark, because it’s been six weeks since he said we’d have just six more weeks of winter. Take heart, spring will come to Woodstock.

often discern who the wealthiest of these households are by the amount of furniture and other belongings they have shipped. e Wall Street Journal recently Scott looked at data from Allied Van Lines Reeder concerning where The Reeder wealthy households Report were moving to and from. e report found that Illinois and Pennsylvania have more wealthy households leaving than arriving. And California leads the nation for the net number of wealthy households migrating away. And states gaining the most? Florida and Texas. So what do East Coast, Midwest and West Coast states like Pennsylvania, Illinois and California have in common? All three are high-tax states, said Joseph Henchman, a vice president at the Tax Foundation. On the other hand, Florida and Texas are much lower tax states.

“Illinois is particularly vulnerable to more out-migration because its neighbors – Wisconsin and Indiana – are busy lowering their taxes,� Henchman added. On the other hand, the Illinois Legislature jacked up our income taxes by 67 percent back in 2011. is has hurt folks from all economic groups. And for folks who make their living making business decisions, it has created one more incentive to leave Illinois. While it’s easy to shrug off the rich guy across town leaving, there is good reason for all of us to be concerned. Have you ever worked for a business person poorer than yourself? Me neither. Even those working in the public sector need to remember where taxes come from to pay for their jobs. And yet, Illinois is consistently pursuing policies that are pushing these job-creators to more hospitable business climates. And where those jobs go, poor and middle-class Illinoisans are sure to follow as well. is migration translates into real money, according to Travis Brown, author of the book “How Money Walks,� a project that measures where people are moving based on tax

returns. “Illinois as a state lost $29.27 billion over the 18 years from 1992 to 2010,� Brown said. During that period, only California and New York lost more income than Illinois, his study found. “at’s a loss of $185,000 per hour. We forecast that between 2010 and 2014 Illinois lost somewhere between $5.4 and $7 billion in adjusted gross income due to migration,� Brown said. Illinois is in that minority of states that continue to levy an estate tax. And increasingly estate planners are advising retired, successful Illinoisans to consider moving to a state without an estate tax so assets can be passed more easily from one generation to the next. at hurts all of us. When successful retirees leave, they are no longer spending money in the Land of Lincoln, paying taxes here or donating to Illinois charities. And that equates to fewer jobs for the rest of us. And ultimately that is why all of us should be concerned.

We all suffer when successful retirees leave One of my favorite books is John Steinbeck’s “e Grapes of Wrath.â€? In that epic tome, farmers from across Oklahoma load up all of their earthly goods onto Model T’s and ee the Dust Bowl for California in the midst of the Great Depression. It’s easy to see that great exodus along Route 66 as the face of migration from one state to another. And to be sure that is one face of relocation. Poor folks still load up dilapidated cars with what they own and seek out opportunity. I saw it all the time when I was a reporter in Las Vegas, families showing up with not much but their dreams and hopes of landing a wellpaying job. But that isn’t the only face of migration. When corporate executives or wellheeled retirees move, it is done with professional movers. And you can

WHS takes 3rd in state music contest WHS, WNHS pick up Best of Day honors By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent e Woodstock High School music program earned third in state for its combined band and choral performances for Class A at the Illinois High School Association Music Solo & Ensemble Contest, and won several “Best of Day” honors March 8. Schools throughout the state participated in various locations on the same day as part of the statewide contest. WHS and Woodstock North High School competed at Harvard High School and came home with several perfect scores and top performances. WHS students brought home a total of eight Best of Day performances – four Best of Day awards in the choral program and four in the band program, the most of any

school at its contest site. For Best of Day, the judges select one outstanding performance from all the performers heard in their room. WHS band students selected included: Samantha Jones, trumpet; Jonathan Zoia, alto saxophone; Natalie Zoia, flute; and the flute duet of Natalie Zoia and Erica Christmas. e Best of Day WHS choral students included: Evan Berg, tenor soloist; Emma Browne and Annie Kamps, duet; Jonathan Zoia and Alex Riak, duet; and Evan Berg, Jonathan Zoia, Samuel Peiffer and Christian Cross, quartet. WHS also earned 10 perfect scores. Woodstock North had a Best of Day performance from the Clarinet Choir of Gabriella Fikert, Mckenzie Dice, Lian Pankow, Allison Nordvall, Emily Heiress, Maria Cooper, Kelly Read, Jose Gonzalez and Gwen Paulsen. North earned five perfect scores. “Our kids came in very prepared,” said WHS choral director Paul Rausch. “Many of [the awards] were just the reflections of

the effort and work the students put in rehearsal.” Rausch said the students began rehearsing near the end of January for the contest. He said he was proud of the growth the students showed, working through nerves, juggling performance schedules and developing their musicality and leadership by working with little direction from him, since the large number of performances — 26 solos and about 50 ensembles — meant he had a limited amount of time to work with each group or individual. “ere’s a lot to be very proud of from the day,” said WHS band director Cody Halberstadt. “We had more soloists go this year than I have in the past … I think, really, that growth that they demonstrate through the solo experience is really quite exciting because they have no one to rely on but themselves. ere’s no one to grip onto for rhythm or pitch accuracy, they have to demonstrate that growth.” For the sweepstakes, music directors select 20 soloists and 20 ensembles in both the band and choir programs in January that scores will be based on. Overall, the WHS combined choral and band program earned third, choir earned second place and band earned eighth. e WNHS combined program earned 13th, choir earned 12th and band earned 15th.

HIGHLIGHT

Northwood team competes in state LEGO contest By JANET DOVIDIO The Independent Northwood Middle School students took on statewide challengers as part of the FIRST LEGO League state competition. FIRST LEGO League teams design, build and program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS technology. is year, they were challenged to create innovative solutions using the theme of “Nature’s Fury.” Teams explored aweinspiring storms, quakes, waves and other natural disasters. Creekside Middle School sent three teams to the regional competition, while NMS sent five teams. Two NMS teams advanced to the state competition: Monsoon Minions, that researched surviving a tsunami; and Lightning Boltz, that studied tornado debris deflection. At the regional competition, Lightning Boltz earned the top score for technical design and programming. Of the 28 teams that competed in Harvard in December, only four advanced to the state competition in February. Due to the large number of participating teams, there were two Illinois state championships by geographical area. At both competitions, teams presented a five-minute research skit and competed in the areas of technical design, complex programming and core values. At the Northern Illinois State Championship, Lightning Boltz achieved 22nd place out of 62 teams. “I am so proud of both of these incredible groups of students,” said NMS advisor Gigi Carlson said. “We met only one day a week for several months. ey talked to experts in their areas of study and determined their own directions in the projects. I was only a facilitator.” Brandon Frisbie, a 2003 Woodstock High School graduate, served as an assistant coach. He is a computer software designer who donated his time as technical adviser. Costumes are permitted at the state competition, so the Monsoon Minions dressed as minions, while the Lightning Boltz members dressed in Wizard of Oz costumes because their project dealt with tornadoes. “I am extremely proud of how the students on both teams worked together,” Carlson said. “ey arrived at very innovative solutions. I enjoyed seeing the kids get fired up about engineering.” News of recognitions and milestones can be sent to Janet Dovidio at fetjetjd@aol.com.

A&E WHS graduate debuts 10-track album Berg’s ‘Stripped Down’ is available online By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent With a vintage style, ’60s vibe and Beatles cover band, 20-year-old Collin Berg grew up in the wrong generation. But the aspiring musician has blended his beloved sounds of the ’60s with modern touches to create his take on the genre. He debuted his first solo album March 1. “Stripped Down” is a 10-track album that the 2012 Woodstock High School grad wrote, played, produced, mixed and mastered on his own. His songs are available on iTunes, Amazon and his website www.reverbnation.com/ collinberg. “My outlook for what I really want to be doing in a couple years is touring, making albums and producing other people’s music,” Berg said. “I would like my own record label and a superprofessional studio. is past year, I’ve been building up my studio – getting more microphones and equipment. at’s what I want to be doing.” Berg began playing guitar at age 7 after a last-minute decision to ditch the drums. “I decided I wanted to play guitar because you can take a guitar with you anywhere, but you can’t take a drum set,” he said. He started playing in his church’s praise band in Ottawa before his family moved to Woodstock and dropped the idea of becoming a cop to pursue a lifelong career in music. When Berg was about 11, he formed a Beatles band with his younger brother, Evan – a first-grader at the time – and Woodstock friends Dylan McCartin, John Morefield and JD

Fuller. e group performed as Stockwood, which held the title as the youngest tribute Beatles band. e band of boys started out at the Dean Street School talent show and went on to play at some big venues including the Woodstock Opera House, Genesee eatre in Waukegan, Rosemont eatre – now called the Akoo eatre – and House of Blues in Chicago. Now, the Beatles tribute band is called Beatolution with Berg as John; his brother, a junior at WHS, as Ringo; Morefield as Paul; and Nick Solideo as George. Berg is also in a duet band with his brother called Revolutionary Relics. Berg is the songwriter of the duo and performs on vocals, guitar, keyboard and harmonica. His brother performs vocals and percussion. “I like having a couple different bands that I’m in, so it’s working by yourself, working with just two people and also four,” Berg said. “It’s a cool, creative way, because when you have four people, it’s four creative minds together, but it’s also cool to take a step back and do stuff on your own as well.” Berg and his bands practice and record in the basement of his father’s house where a previous homeowner had constructed a recording studio and mixing room. He said the home studio was part of the reason his family bought the house. Berg said he is always writing songs and jotting down ideas for future recordings. Most of the songs on his new album were songs he wrote about a year ago, but they took a while for him to finish as he learned to use his mastering equipment.

Berg attended Columbia College Chicago to pursue a major in singing and songwriting, but is taking a break to pay off his tuition. In the meantime, he has been teaching guitar at Piano Trends Music Company in Crystal Lake. When he returns to Columbia, he said will take music production courses. But for now he has been picking up recording engineering techniques from some friends.

With more experience and practice in mastering, Berg said he is looking forward to producing another album. Although he is true to the ’60s, he said he wants to broaden his genres and styles and may even incorporate reggae in his next album. “I want to try to dabble in as many genres as I can that make sense for me throughout my music career.”

City to focus on retail development e city of Woodstock recently attended the 2014 International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Midwest Idea Exchange and Illinois Alliance Program. ICSC is the leading association for all things related to retail development and the shopping center industry. Attendance at the Midwest Idea Exchange afforded the chance to interact and learn from nearly 300 professionals in the economic development, retail leasing and development, and shopping center sectors. As Cort the city continues to pursue new retail Carlson development opMinding Your portunities, ICSC Business membership will play a major role in reaching out to desired retailers and their representatives as well as realestate brokers and developers. Current retail development trends as presented include: e food market is very active. e recent movement of Dominick’s out of the Chicago area has generated a domino effect on the regional grocery market. New players are coming in, and some smaller chains are expanding. Medi-Retail: Many communities and retail centers are seeing strong growth with medical service businesses, often replacing traditional retail uses in neighborhood centers. e recent opening of Athletico Physical erapy in Woodstock is an example of this type of nontraditional retail use. Infill and redevelopment: e driving force of retail growth right now is the re-leasing or infill of existing space abandoned during the economic downturn. is includes breaking up of bigbox sites into smaller units. ere are very few expanding traditional retailers, and vacancies remain challenged. New, ground-up development remains sluggish. From 1982 to 2013, the average square footage of new development in the Chicago market was approximately 6.5 million, with the high point of 2006 at 12.2 million. In 2013, only 2.3 million square feet of new development was delivered into the marketplace. Retail follows rooftops. e tradition of retail development following rooftops still holds true. Until we see a definitive shift in the housing market, new commercial growth will remain stunted. Retailers are looking for the sure thing and chasing the big three: population, demographics/income, and vehicle traffic. Not all is doom and gloom. All indicators show year-over-year growth in retail and commercial activity throughout the Chicago market. And Woodstock in particular is experiencing growth in new housing.

Local biz on display at garden show By TRICIA CARZOLI The Independent

e Chicago Flower and Garden Show is a big deal. It is an opportunity to showcase all a nursery has to offer to the Midwest and beyond. is is an opportunity award-winning Woodstock residents and passionate arborists, Rich and Susan Eyre, owners of Rich’s Foxwillow Pines Nursery, 11618 McConnell Road, know well. e Woodstock couple have had a garden featured in the Chicago Flower and Garden Show at Navy Pier for the last 21 years – and Rich is known world-wide for his expertise in rare conifers, which means many customers seek him out during what he describes as “just an exhausting 10 days of answering questions and getting to see returning customers and meeting new customers.” e show has given the pair much notoriety over the years, and the nursery was even featured on the PBS broadcast of Victory Garden. e Eyres said their display takes months of planning and hours of setup. e theme for the 2014 show is, “Do Green, Do Good.” e Eyres named their display 50 Shades of Green: a passion for conifers. “Our designer, Todd Mohr worked with Sam and Natalie Johnson [Woodstock Ornamental Werks, 2719 Stieg Road.] to create a wonderful garden for us. e Johnsons created an [ornamental] pergola … that stands over 18 feet and links

three garden beds,” Rich Eyre said. “It is the largest structure in Navy Pier at the show,” Susan said, praising the work of the Johnsons. With three garden beds showcasing trees requiring various amounts of shade, the Eyres were able to bring in a large selection of their now-famous conifers. “We bring $30,000 worth of trees to the show,” Susan Eyre said, “It is a huge investment. But, there are buses that come from five different states, and our nursery gets exposure – people drive for hours to come to our nursery and get trees from our farm.” “We have a nursery like no other,” Rich Eyre said. “ere is no other place that has this amount of variety of pine trees.” e Eyre’s display features a large antique stone finial as the centerpiece of the pergola that sits at the end of a winding path. e colorful display encourages gardeners to enhance their garden with well-placed conifers. e Eyres have collected rare pines – especially dwarf plant material that is suited for downsized spaces – and nurtured their farm for more than 33 years. ey grow conifers, European beeches, Japanese maples, paperbark maples and ginkgos among other trees as well as hundreds of varieties of hostas. Rare pines became a passion of Rich’s when he was in Bolivia with the Peace Corp. When he returned to the United States, he knew he still had this passion. But it would be some time before his dream would come to fruition.

Eyre met his wife, Susan, and they set out on a path that allowed them to work together to pursue a tree-lovers’ passion. But on a road trip, the Eyres took a wrong turn – at least, they thought it was a wrong turn. at turn led them to a nursery full of the very rare pines that Rich Eyre had fallen in love with in Bolivia. “I was lucky enough to have this man teach me everything he knew and nurture my love for conifers – the rest is history,” Rich Eyre said. And that history is filled with a horticultural journey that commenced in Woodstock and which has allowed the Eyres to travel the world as renowned speakers on rare conifers. While the Eyres have put their hearts and souls into their work, they also consider the many blessings that have helped them along in their journey. “We have been blessed along the way, and I can only hope we can bless others. … We support International [through the selling of hostas and seedlings at their booth], and we are selling Bolivian crafts through Mano a Mano at our booth at Navy Pier as well. We have a heart for fighting hunger – I would say that giving back is an equal passion for us,” Rich Eyre said. rough Rich Eyre’s travels and work in the Peace Corp, he has experienced world hunger first-hand, and though his passion for cone-bearing trees are his life’s work, he and his wife hope their legacy is their desire to give back.

Community Special meaning for chamber award winner By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent The Woodstock Chamber of Commerce & Industry honored Family Alliance executive director Kim Larson with the Harold Buschkopf Award at its annual dinner in late February. The award is presented for distinguished community service and love of Woodstock. “Kim Larson is certainly a worthy recipient,” said Shari Gray, the chamber’s executive director. “She’s very involved, not only with the chamber, but in the Woodstock community. I can’t think of a more deserving person. I was even surprised at some of the things she is involved in that I wasn’t even aware of.” Larson was a nurse in the community for more than 20 years, working in local hospitals and clinics. She also spends much of her time volunteering for several programs like Christmas Clearing House and providing leadership for the Woodstock Noon Rotary Club as the organization’s president. For about nine years, she had served as the executive director of Adult & Child Therapy Services, which provides physical, occupational and speech therapy and home health. This past year, Larson was named executive

director of Family Alliance, and is working toward improving local and national health care for the aging population. “Kim was well-deserving of the honor this year,” said Kim Jo Graff, Harold Larson Buschkopf’s daughter. After Buschkopf died in 1994, his family and the chamber worked together to establish an award to recognize individuals who possessed Buschkopf’s spirit of volunteerism and commitment to Woodstock. Graff first presented the award in 1995 and has been on the judging committee every year. Her son, Jarret, is becoming involved in the process. “It’s awesome knowing how much people do for the city and that my dad is still recognized for what he did,” Graff said. “One thing on the plaque that I just love is, ‘a man who loved Woodstock.’ There are so many people out there that can qualify for that. There have been so many great recipients throughout the years, and I’m amazed at the applications. … I love being there, love being able to present,

IN BRIEF

“I think it’s always been important to me to try to make a difference. I think that’s a responsibility we all have.” — Kim Larson, Buschkopf Award winner but most of all I love being on the committee that picks the winner. It brings my dad’s memory back.” “I feel very honored to be nominated and to be among these previous winners who are just phenomenal people, but it’s humbling,” Larson said. “I don’t know if anyone who receives it feels like they’re truly deserving. You know, you just do what comes naturally.” Larson said the award had a special meaning for her since she knew Buschkopf. As a nurse, she often spoke to him when she called Buschkopf Pharmacy for refills, formerly located at 109 E. Van Buren St. Though she said she was very happy working as a nurse, before accepting positions as executive director for ACTS and Family Alliance, she wanted to do something that could benefit more people. “At that time, I realized, in nursing, I was helping one person at a time,” she said. “But if I took that position I could really benefit a community. I think it’s

always been important to me to try to make a difference. I think that’s a responsibility we all have. You can really make an impact. I took that leap and I took this leap.” Now as executive director of Family Alliance, Larson has helped to bring in a primary care physician and is working to ease transitions for clients with the changes in health care. She said Family Alliance is one of only a few organizations that serves the 50-yearsand-older population and has staff recognized as experts in the field of aging. Family Alliance serves about 200 people in its day program and more than 200 in its behavioral health program. It is a leader in providing support, services and programs for the entire family. Last week, Larson and her team presented a research project about dementia at the national conference for the Agency on Aging in San Diego. The week-long seminar consisted of researchers and organizations nationwide meeting to problem-solve and learn about the various initiatives in progress for the aging population. She said the aging population is exploding – about 10,000 people are turning 65 daily. She said it’s a challenging time, providing many opportunities to provide options.

Hardie advances to state showdown By JAY SCHULZ The Independent e season may be over for the Marian Central Catholic High School boys basketball team, but Hurricane junior Kyler Hardie will make the trip to the Peoria Civic Center. Hardie made 11 of 15 3-point baskets March 14 in the IHSA Class 3A 3-point showdown at Genoa-Kingston and has qualiďŹ ed for the state 3-point showdown ursday, March 20, at Carver Arena, Peoria. Kyler was the ďŹ rst shooter at the sectional tournament. He said he was nervous hoping his number would hold up and is excited to get a chance to move forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited to advance to the next level and go up against the best shooters in the state,â&#x20AC;? Hardie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy for Kyler,â&#x20AC;? said Marian Central head coach Curtis Prices â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did a good job. â&#x20AC;Ś He gets a chance to experience being downstate as a 3-point shooter. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great for him and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great for our school.â&#x20AC;? e last player to qualify for the state 3-point shootout from Marian Central was David Luczak in 2010. e last player from a Woodstock area school to qualify for the state 3-point showdown was Woodstock North High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jordan Kempf in 2011.

Emricson Park in 2010 and has not used the field since then. e field will be converted for use by the varsity girls softball team. WHS athletic director Glen Wilson said softball fields are easier to maintain because they are skinned – no grass in

the infield – and are much smaller than a baseball diamond. “e upper field baseball diamond has been there a long time,” Wilson said. “It’s a challenge to maintain since its such a large field. It’s a big responsibility to maintain a baseball field. It’s a

larger responsibility than it gets credit for.” According to Wilson, the field will need to skinned and leveled, fences will need to be shored up, and a temporary fence will be installed that can be removed so the field can be used for other sports. “e fence will be visually appealing,” Wilson said. “It will still be a multi-use area.” A softball field, without an outfield fence, will be installed in the southeast corner to be used by the freshman and sophmore teams, and the entire area will be irrigated, making it more useable for physical education classes and other sports practices. WHS head girls softball coach Steve Beard said he was thankful to the district for supporting the WHS softball program and believes practicing and

playing games on campus could help the program. “I’m just excited that our school district is putting forth some monies toward our softball program.” Beard said. “I think it might get some improved participation. We might have more girls play softball. It will maximize our time each day.” Wilson echoed Beard’s comments. “We’re really excited to get all levels of the softball program to the school,” Wilson said. “It’s a pretty exciting project. We’re very grateful to the district for making this happen. ... “We are excited about this opportunity to get our kids back on campus as much as possible.” Bids for the project are currently being accepted, and Wilson said the district is hoping to complete the work this summer.

» PREVIEW MARIAN TRACK AND FIELD

With new coach, Marian track has sights set on postseason By MEGAN IVERS The Independent e Marian Central Catholic High School track and field team has goals to achieve longterm success heading into the 2014 season. With new head coach Adam Zanck, the Hurricanes boys and girls squads are set to test their speed and strength to prepare for the IHSA sectionals in May. “I don’t ever plan on this program being the same one year to the next, as we keep learning and getting better,” said Zanck, who would like to develop a team that sends athletes in all events to the state finals. “Your biggest competition is yourself. What was the last time you posted? Let’s make sure we’re posting to get quicker or move longer. With time, the competitiveness will come.” “I want everyone to enjoy it,” added Zanck. Zanck has nearly 30 varsity student-athletes to lead the team this year. e boys will be led by the team captains,

WHS track

seniors Alex Cetera, distance, and Allen Young, throws, juniors Jordan Niemeyer, sprints and jumps, and Sebastian Soliz, throws. Key returners on the boys side include senior Tim Bryan, jumps, and juniors Michael Lyons and Sam Gulbrandsen, middle distance. Sprints will be reinforced by sophomore returnees Jack Littner and Ben Taylor. Zanck looks forward to the enthusiasm of Lyons and Gulbrandsen anchoring a strong 4x800- meter relay team this year. Underclassmen and newcomers who will provide depth to the distance squad include sophomores Liam Knudsen and Justin Santopadre and freshmen Danny Baumert, Clay Gulbrandsen, Adam Konopka and Mickey Malinsky. “Even though other schools may have bigger teams, whether it is in the single events or relays, we are always there to help each other out,” said Soliz. “e competition amongst our-

selves helps, too. We want everyone to reach their goals, feel they have no regrets and give it their all.” e team has a large contingent of athletes to support all events, including relays in seniors Chaz Heintzelman, Ben Ohlrich, Jack Rhodes, Sammy Rita and Ryan Wray; juniors Zach Beagle, Scotty Girolamo, Alex Irizarry, Jacob Maher, Alex Noe, John Slivka, Bryce Struttman and Pat Sullivan; sophomores Marco Binotti, Vince Catarello, Ryan DiPietro, Luke Dowell, Chris Heintzelman, Gerard Squires, Ben Stone, Jake Tinkham, William Wallace and Brendan Yarwoord; and freshmen Elliott Cleven, Nick Edwards, Dan Elder, Sam Gibson, Jake Noe, Steven Ricchiuto and Eric Soliz. Rebuilding the ranks of the girls squad will be a focus of the Hurricanes with junior returnee Marisa Monbrod, distance, leading the pack. e Lady ‘Canes should have a strong showing in the distance events with senior Brie Bau-

mert, junior Emma Baumert and sophomores Norah Cetera and Monica Juarez. Junior Cat Meyn and sophomore Amanda Morris will provide experience in sprints. “We’re trying to think of the bigger picture,” said Monbrod. “Every day that you don’t train hard, other people are training hard. If you want to stay ahead of them, you have to put the work in, too.” Similar to the boys, the girls will benefit from talented freshmen. Freshman newcomers Alyssa Dowell, Abigail Jones and Morgan Litterer all are coming off a strong crosscountry season, with Jones gaining state championship experience. Dowell also will join junior Haley Neumann to lead the Hurricanes in throws. Jumps will be led by senior high jumper Toni Calderaro. Zanck noted that in a recent indoor meet, Calderaro was near to what she jumped toward the end of the 2013 season indicating her potential to improve her shot at a

state qualification this year. Juniors Molly Dougherty, Anna Herff, erese Hughes and Katelyn Klaus; and sophomores Justine Arejola, Ashley Budyak, Lauren Caselton, Rachel McNulty, Nicole Rhodes, Nora Tucker and Abbey Wenzel will bolster the girls squad. e Hurricanes will expect Sam Ackley, Madeline Baron, Shaelyn Blais, Kirsten Dionela, Mary Kate Hackworthy, Jennifer Knox, Brenna Koch, Nicole Lange, Faelan O’Shaughnessy, Bryanna Reyes, Jenna Walker and Hanna Wiedmaier to emerge as future varsity contributors. Zanck’s staff includes Amy Beattie, distance, Maureen Edwards, middle distance, Lea Ann Golembiewski, hurdles and Kevin Conlon, throws. While this is his first year coaching at the high school level, Zanck has spent the last six years coaching at St. Mary School. Both Hurricane squads will open the outdoor season at Big Foot at 4:15 p.m. ursday, April 3.

help out the freshmen and try to motivate them to keep working hard.” e rest of the boys roster includes seniors Marcus Ammirati, Dillon Austin, Dan Colangelo, JP Cosper, Jacob Cramer, Drew Davis, Paul Gallosa, Sergio Garcia, Edgar Gonzalez, Andy Layoff, Carson Price, James Sullivan, Preston Tio, Mike Zaino and Addison Zanck; junior Jon Cunningham; sophomores Donovan Chambers, Tyler Critchfield, Travis Montalbano, Dan Nattress, Devonte Spiller, Spencer Stumpff, Maclain orton and Dustin Wolf; and freshmen Tim Andersson, Jarod Baker, Andrew Brewer, Austin Castillo, Paxson DeChant, Spencer Hanson, Luke Hodory, Justin Kucharski, Will Maidment, John Presisto, Abram Rodriguez, Caleb Ruff, Justin Tillman and Anthony Zepeda. For the girls team, senior Maura Beattie will seek to defend her state championship in the 3,200 run, and her sister, sophomore Grace Beattie, will look to return to state to compete in the 400 low hurdles. ree fourths of the 4x800 relay team returns from last year and should have a good shot at making it down state. “I’m real excited about this year’s team,” said girls head coach Steve Erwin. “I’ve got a bigger number that I have had in the last few years. We have a big group of freshmen which is nice. We’ve still got a real solid group of state qualifiers returning in the distance range – Maura [Beattie], Grace [Beattie] and Meghan [Hanson]. We lost Kerstin Wolf to graduation but we

have a couple of nice replacements with (senior) Lacey Heaver and (freshnman) Kate Jacobs.” Erwin, who also coaches the sprinters on both teams, believes there is more depth in the sprinters and hopes he can get them outside soon to practice. “It’s really tough on the sprinters,” Erwin said. “Our grounds crew has done some nice things with our track. We can actually use it a little right now. But if its cold out there, I really can’t take them out. Our inside facilities are so hard and are really rough on legs.” e captains are seniors Emma Cowley, Erica Christmas and Maura Beattie. Christmas, who has been on the team all four years of high school and competes in the 400, 4x400 and the 4x200, said she is looking for the influx of youth to help the team improve. “I hope we improve,” Christmas said. “We have a lot of strong freshmen this year, so I would like to see what they can do.” e rest of the girls roster includes seniors Dakota Brand, Alli DeWane, Kaina Gonzalez, Megan Pautrat, Amber Roberts, Krista Robson and Andrea Wright; juniors Hope Brainard, Colleen Brown, Nora Brown and Sarah Semmen; sophomores Karen MendezAvila, Alyssa Parsons, Cristina Romero and Amy Zhang; freshmen Kaylee Blasinski, Grace Detweiler, Autumn Harvey, Nikki Johnston, Eva Jonas, Maddy Neubauer, Ashley Peake, Izzy Solberg, Diana Spokas, Ryn Stewart, Emily To-
