For years Susan Eyre had been trying to nominate her friend Jane Collins for the Woodstock Professional & Business Women’s Woman of the Year award. Each time Eyre asked, Collins would tell her, “Absolutely not.” But this year, Eyre finally nominated her friend, and Collins was named the Woodstock Woman of the Year April 21. Collins died March 1 from pancreatic cancer at age 73. She was an advocate for the environment – focusing on water and land conservation issues in the county – and she worked to make local governments responsible and transparent. Collins monitored county-wide development and obtained a law degree at age 55 to help residents understand legal processes and combat potential impacts new developments could have on their properties. A woman who grew her own produce and planted a prairie in her front yard, Collins valued natural resources and sustainability. She was a member of the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, and she helped start e Land Conservancy of McHenry County, where she assisted in preserving about 2,000 acres of land in the county through conservation easements. “at was really quite a wonderful celebration for Jane,” Eyre said. “I tried nominating her four or five times, and she would always say, ‘nominate someone who deserves it.’ But this year she couldn’t say no.”

Historical society puts Peasley’s work in its permanent collection By KATELYN STANEK The Independent If it happened in Woodstock, Don Peasley was there. Just ask Kira Halvey. Halvey, the McHenry County Historical Society’s curator, has spent years alongside her co-workers and a team of volunteers, combing through the photos, newspaper clippings and other archives of Peasley,

the man known as “Mr. Woodstock,” who worked as a journalist, columnist, photographer and general man-about-town over a period of eight separate decades. Now, in a permanent collection opening Sunday, May 4, Peasley’s dogged work chronicling life in Woodstock and greater McHenry County is set to take center stage at the historical society.

A TASTY TRADITION

Greenwood hosts 50th annual spaghetti dinner By SANDY KUCHARSKI The Independent Over the last 50 years, the third Friday in April has become synonymous with spaghetti in the Village of Wonder Lake. On April 25, Greenwood Elementary School hosted its 50th Annual Spaghetti Dinner, the largest fundraising event of the year for the Greenwood Parent Teacher Organization, drawing nearly 600 guests each year. “Talk to anybody in Wonder Lake and they know about the spaghetti dinner,” said Greenwood principal Tom Wolpart. Former principal Bill Schuette was instrumental in starting the dinner in 1964. In 1961, Schuette’s first year as principal, he and the PTO began hosting pancake breakfasts, but they kept setting off the smoke detector when they grilled the pancakes, so they chose to switch to boiling water and cooking spaghetti instead. In the early years the dinner included a cakewalk on the stage with baked goods donated by the parents. Today it’s grown to include a fun fair with games in the

classrooms, a rock wall and jumpy house and an extensive silent auction. Wolpart grew up in Wonder Lake and attended Greenwood as a child. Now, in his first year as principal of his alma mater, the spaghetti dinner stirs up a lot of memories. “I remember the cakewalk and the games, and how being able to be at the school at night was fun,” he said. “A lot of stuff I remember as a kid they can’t do anymore,” referring to the sauce dump. “People had their own gardens and they made their own sauces. ey would dump the sauces, and the kitchen person would spice it up and make it taste right.” Health department regulations have done away with the practice of sharing homemade food items, so the structure of the dinner has evolved through the years. Instead of food items, students and parents are encouraged to donate items to add to the silent-auction baskets each classroom provides. Funds raised at the annual dinner finance the PTO’s efforts to support the school with projects including the pur-

chase of technology and financing field trips. In honor of the 50th anniversary, the PTO invited more than 60 former

teachers and staff to the event. Schuette, who lives across the street from the school, gladly accepted the invitation.

“It’s such a broad spectrum of photos he took,” Halvey said. “ey’re a historical treasure.” e collection on display, pared down from a stock of about 11,000 photos, includes much of Peasley’s trademark handiwork — black-and-white pictures of dairy farmers, V-J Day parades and baseball teams. But it also includes some of Peasley’s tools of the trade — his word processor, Rolodex and film cameras, much of it still in use when he died May 3, 2013, at the age of 90. Also in the exhibit’s recreation of Peasley’s Lincoln Avenue home office is a stack of calendars that serve just as well as an almanac of area history as they do a record of Peasley’s appointments. “We were founded in 1963, so I could look back on his calendar … and find the place he wrote, ‘First organizational meeting for the historical society,’” Halvey said. Peasley first arrived in Woodstock in 1947 to work as a reporter and photographer for the Woodstock Journal. He would go on to write and take photos for a variety of publications, including e Woodstock Independent and Northwest Herald, as well as publish newsletters and magazines for the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Woodstock Little League, the American Dairy Association of Illinois and a host of other

organizations. at he never retired — some of his articles actually appeared in this newspaper after his death — didn’t surprise his daughter, Sarah. “What would he retire to? His favorite thing was talking to people and going to events and finding free coffee,” she said, laughing. “He liked to have a purpose. I’m sure that contributed to his long, happy life.” Herself a former journalist in Denver, Sarah Peasley said her father’s work ethic and identity as a Woodstock reporter followed her family nearly everywhere when she was a girl. “I remember those roles were so completely integrated with who he was. ere was always the Hasselblad [camera] sitting on the back of the car,” she said. “He’d always run into somebody saying, ‘Hey, we’ve got this event going on and you need to come.’ He got his ideas from being out and about all the time.” But it wasn’t until much later in his career that Peasley recognized the value in his store of old negatives and clippings, said Kurt Begalka, the McHenry County Historical Society’s executive director. “I don’t think Don ever looked at himself as the chronicler of history. He would have laughed at that,” Begalka

DON PEASLEY — MCHENRY COUNTY THROUGH HIS LENS What: The historical society museum’s 51st season opens with the unveiling of a Don Peasley permanent exhibit, featuring the recreated office of “Mr. Woodstock” and some of his iconic photos.

He knew that he was creating a legacy of both images and words that would be looked at years from now.” Today, that legacy includes the historical society’s collection that sits on display or stuffed into boxes or digitized, searchable by keyword. It’s a collection Begalka and Halvey said many people are eager to scour for the images of family or friends or events Peasley was almost certain to have documented. After all, capturing an image is what came naturally to Peasley. “I’m sure,” Begalka said, “that when he got to heaven, Don went, ‘OK, St. Peter, can you just hold still for one second? I want to get a photo of you here.’”

An Elgin man was arrested and charged with felony sexual assault for an alleged attack in a Woodstock motel, police said. Timothy E. Levis, 54, was charged April 20 with two counts of criminal sexual assault, both class 1 felonies, following an Timothy E. incident at Super 8 Levis Motel, 1220 Davis Road. According to a statement from the Woodstock Police Department, a manager at Super 8 met with Levis and the alleged victim, a 25-year-old woman, following complaints of loud arguing coming from Levis’ rented room. e statement said the manager noted “suspicious behavior” from both, prompting a call to police. When police arrived, the victim told them she had been sexually assaulted in the late evening or early morning hours by Levis, who had fled the area by the time officers reached the scene. He was subsequently found by police in the nearby Willow Brooke Apartment complex parking lot. e woman received medical treatment at an area hospital. Levis was turned over to the McHenry County Jail. His bond was set at $100,000. — Katelyn Stanek, The Independent

Woodstock sex offender charged for giving wrong address

A 27-year-old Woodstock man was charged April 22 with unlawful failure to register as a child sex offender for providing false information about where he was living. Adrian K. Clark was charged with a class 2 felony for allegedly lying about his address when registering as a sex

Eyre and her husband, Rich, co-owners of Rich’s Foxwillow Pines Nursery, met Collins through their membership with the Environmental Defenders. Collins guided the couple in monitoring development in the late ’80s when subdivision plans manifested near their farm on McConnell Road. “She did so much for so many people,” Eyre said. “at was the thing about Jane. She wasn’t promoting herself in any way.” Doreen Paluch, Woman of the Year committee chair, said WBPW has been honoring a woman of the year since 1975. She said each year, several nominations come in, nominating women from all walks of life. She said the area that usually weighs the heaviest is the impact that any individual has had upon the community as a whole. She said the committee focuses on the nominee’s impact in the Woodstock area, the length of time she has devoted to her efforts, her leadership qualities and her unique contributions to the community. “What struck us about Sue Eyre’s nomination concerning Jane was the long lasting impact that Jane’s efforts will have on not just Woodstock but greater McHenry County and other places as well, especially with water use and things of that nature,” Paluch. Paluch said a second nomination came in from Brenda Dennison, focusing on Jane as a person and how she touched people individually, her giving nature and her willingness to share and host school classes at her house to teach students about conservation and nature. “I think that, as is true with all the women we’ve honored, one thing about Jane that was evident in the nominations for her is just an absolute devotion to what she was doing and a selflessness in pursuing that,” Paluch said. She said since she has served on the committee, the WOTY award has never been given to someone that was deceased. She said the committee even consulted the rules to determine whether anything would prohibit it from naming Collins. “It was nice of her friends to nominate her,” said Collins’ husband, John. John Collins said he met his wife in the Peace Corps while teaching at a school in Zaria, Nigeria, where he taught math and science and served as the games master (athletic director) and she taught French. e pair married in Nigeria, purchasing material for a wedding dress and suit from the local market and employing a local tailor to make the garments. Along with the reception, cake and decór, John Collins said the grand total for the wedding was only $35. e couple had been married 47 years.

ter and sewer sales in fiscal year 2013-14. e city had budgeted $4.7 million in revenues but later revised the figure, estimating it would collect only $4.2 million. For 2014-15, Woodstock’s utility fund is projected to have a deficit

of about $520,000, even with the 3 percent rate hike. Stelford said the city is exploring ways to address the shortfall, including replacing old meters with more accurate instruments that can be read remotely.

» OUR VIEW

Tax dollars and city sense Woodstock’s budget, approved at a midApril City Council meeting, passed without much public fuss. Coming in at $29.5 million, the budget is balanced, and it doesn’t take advantage of the automatic “cost of living” property tax hike allowed under Illinois law, the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law. For that, the city’s budget-makers should be applauded. e city also should be commended for continuing to keep its budget below the heights it reached prior to the Great Recession. Although its hiring freeze is over, the scare brought on by slashed property tax revenue and high unemployment is recent — and ongoing, for some — and it’s enough to warrant continued action and attention from the city. Now, it’s time to stick to the budget and think creatively when addressing its challenges. e city’s utility fund is expected to run a deficit this fiscal year, even after residents shoulder a 3 percent water and sewer rate hike. A document pertaining to the budget points to inaccurate, aging meters and other problems that will need to be addressed if that part of the budget is to be balanced. e document itself proposes some fixes — let’s see to it that everyone, particularly large industrial accounts, are paying their fair share. e city-owned Courthouse on the Square is set to be sold soon, with final proposals from prospective buyers due this week. It’s no secret that maintaining and upgrading the historic Courthouse has been expensive, with its roof and dome alone coming in at more than $340,000 over budget. With this in mind, we urge the city to sell the building to a qualified buyer as soon as possible. In the intermediate period while it’s still the city’s responsibility, city staff and the council should make every effort to stick to the courthouse budget — and to pull back on the project in other areas when certain expenses exceed expectations.

No transients allowed Editor’s note: Lou Ness is a Woodstock resident walking from Rockford to Washington, D.C., in order to raise awareness of the plight of the poor. is column is excerpted from her blog, “Moments From the March,” which follows her journey. As of April 27, she was nearly 300 miles from Rockford in western Ohio. I’m a Christian, and for me, Easter is everything rolled into one week - a week that gives us so many ways to examine our lives in the shadow of an event that formed and shaped our beliefs as people grounded in the love of Christ – yet what is missing in our country? As I walked through the latter portion of Lent, I was keenly aware of the crosses people carry with them every day and the long loneliness created by struggle and fear. I met people whose families had abandoned and denied them many times, people who could not find friendship and care without expectation or obligations … the list goes on.

During Holy Week, I had the opportunity to gather myself closer to the one who gave His life to me in love and friendship and then at the end Lou made the final Ness sacrifice so that others could live Guest Column fully. In each town, I have been able to participate in Holy Week services, and it has been great. Yesterday, a police officer stopped me and my granddaughter, Chloe, who was walking with me. Someone had called in and said a woman was walking along Route US 30 - a possible transient. e officer stepped out of his car, walked up to the cart and said, “Where are you going?” (not do you need any help) I said, “Washington, D.C.” He looked at me, “What for?” I looked him in the eye and said, “To end poverty.” He looked up from his pad... “You can start at my house.” I said, “It is legal for me to walk on this road, am I right?” “Oh, yeah,” he said. “It’s just we get a lot of transients through here.” After a brief conversation he left.

“What’s a transient?” Chloe asked. “at would be us,” I replied. It occurs to me Jesus was a transient, passing through, leaving His message and His love behind seeded in people. I am a transient during this Holy Week. I have nowhere to belong as I walk the road. I rely on the good will and generosity of people I meet – I have not been disappointed – I carry the burdens and crosses of many as I walk, and I wait for resurrection, new life and hope for a better life for all God’s people – after all, isn’t that the point of all this? Today on the road to Warsaw [Indiana], I will pray for every person I have met, for every person who offered stories to me, for every person who offered hospitality and for every person who reads this blog. I pray for those who continue to drag their crosses behind them into life and cannot find anyone to share their burden – mostly, today, I will simply pray for the light of the world to diminish the darkness. May you all celebrate the newness of life, the gift of hope and the idea that we are all connected to each other.

Âť COLUMN

Never assume; admit, correct your mistakes Some would say I have mud on my face after last week’s column. Since I’m this newspaper’s publisher, I’d say I have ink on my face. I made an assumption April 20 as I wrote Declarations for last week’s paper. I assumed I remembered the date of the ďŹ rst Woodstock Independent. Remembering such a date isn’t akin to remembering my wedding anniversary or the birthdates of my children and grandchildren, but it’s close. My week had been busy, including my regular responsibilities at e Independent, a night meeting, a bunch of appointments and two days in Chicago – one spent at the Shedd Aquarium with three of the grandchildren. I also watched a Little League baseball game, volunteered at Ag Expo and celebrated Easter. Early in the week, I realized I had a slam-dunk topic for Declarations – e Independent’s birthday. For some reason, I thought the ďŹ rst paper was April 27, 1987, giving me the golden birthday lead. I assumed I was right. Usually, I am obsessive about checking facts. Just ask the TWI staff. If something doesn’t jibe when I’m

prooďŹ ng the paper, I ask staff to check their notes or call sources again to be sure the information is correct. I ďŹ led my column. It was proofed and printed. Cheryl On April 23, John Wormley Kunzie called. He has called Declarations every year on e Independent’s anniversary. I had one of those “Did I make a mistake?â€? moments, but I didn’t act on it. en April 25, Denise Graff Ponstein called. e two of us started e Independent in 1987. “I always thought the ďŹ rst Independent was published on my brother Ken’s birthday,â€? she said. “What is his birthdate?â€? I asked. “April 23,â€? she responded. I felt a sinking feeling – the one that sets in when I think something’s wrong. I have every issue of e Independent in bound books by year, so I checked the ’87 book. e date on the ďŹ rst paper: “April 23, 1987.â€?

I had given our readers incorrect information, and I felt terrible. So what does a newspaper do when it publishes something that’s incorrect? It publishes a correction and apologizes. In the case of a column – like my error in Declarations, it’s the responsibility of the columnist to print a correction in his or her next column. Corrections for errors in sports are printed in a correction box in the sports section — on the next to the last page of the paper. Corrections for all other errors are printed in a correction box on page 3. So, I’ve printed the correction, and I truly, truly regret the error. e Independent was founded on accuracy of reporting, and accuracy remains our overarching and undergirding tenet. In celebration of the paper’s 27th anniversary, I encouraged subscribers to let us know if they are among our elite 27-years-and-counting society. Dan Chwalisz emailed that he and his wife, Joyce, had subscribed since the very beginning, He wrote, “Originally it was a personal relationship. en

we realized that e Independent was the only paper that supplied us with local news. It’s been that way since day one. Keep up the good work.â€? Saturday night, Connie Hyde saw me at Off the Rails and told me she was a 27-year subscriber who looks forward to reading her Independent every week. I know there are many more of you who have subscribed continuously since 1987. Please email me or call the ofďŹ ce. We want to thank you. P.S. Woodstock Celebrates will host its inaugural event – Orson Welles and the 80th anniversary of the Todd eatre Festival – Friday and Saturday, May 16 and 17. It will include: lectures, a ďŹ lm festival, live radio reenactments, panel discussions, books signings and a Todd School exhibit. Set aside time May 16 and 17 to participate in the celebration, watch for information in future Independents and online at welleswoodstock.com and check out the festival’s classy banners on the light poles around the Square.

engaging in political patronage. ese men and a host of others used their political clout to get people government jobs. e cards not only listed the job applicant’s name but Scott also their political Reeder sponsors. It was an Reeder Report era when political patronage was out in the open. Today, of course, this type of patronage is illegal. But it’s still common. Frankly, it’s part of the unseemly political culture that is Illinois. In the decades I’ve covered Illinois government, I have seen more cases of patronage than you can shake a timecard at. A few years ago, long after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the practice illegal in most instances, I was chatting with the late John Gianulis, the octogenarian party boss for Rock Island County. He’d just been hired

on by Rod Blagojevich to work in his administration. He rather unapologetically told me he was going to head up patronage for the governor. And to a large extent, in Illinois, if you want to get hired or advance in your government job, it’s not so much what you know, but who you know. Look no further than the latest Metra controversy. Former CEO Alex Clifford alleges that House Speaker Michael Madigan and other political big shots pressured him on a host of personnel issues. Admittedly, things aren’t as bad as they once were. Back when I ďŹ rst started covering Illinois politics in the 1980s, state prison guards, secretaries, laboratory technicians and a whole host of runof-the-mill state jobs were hired in part through the ofďŹ ces of a local GOP county chairmen. It was a bad practice that made for a worse workforce. Job applicants felt compelled to give money to politicians. State workers felt compelled to continue to give once they had their jobs. And

working for the local political party, rather than doing good work, was seen as a way to advance in your government job. Even today, politicians largely are dependent on government workers to do their political bidding. Last year, the Better Government Association investigated who was passing nominating petitions for Madigan. ey found that 17 of 30 people who passed petitions worked for government and another 12 had at one time worked for government. at’s right, 29 out of 30. Political patronage remains a pernicious problem in the Land of Lincoln. It’s time our state leaders consider hiring and promoting the best people rather than the most politically subservient. It won’t happen just by changing laws, but by changing the political culture that dominates SpringďŹ eld. And that will be a tough row to hoe.

An Illinois tradition that needs to end Several boxes of old index cards turned up the other day that demonstrated politics in the ’80s and ’90s played a role in people getting hired by Metra, the outďŹ t that operates commuter trains in the Chicago area.

Education Raising the bar on education WHS is ranked in a list of the most challenging schools in Illinois By SANDY KUCHARSKI The Independent Woodstock High School earned the honor of being ranked by the Washington Post in its annual list of America’s Most Challenging High Schools. WHS was ranked 66th in Illinois for the 2013 school year. e ranking is determined by a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International CertiďŹ cate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means that the school had as many tests as graduates. WHS had an index score

of 1.08 in 2013. “I’m happy with our staff and our students for achieving this,â€? said WHS principal Corey Tafoya. “It’s a big honor.â€? According to Tafoya, in 2007 when he and his staff ďŹ rst became aware of the ranking system, the school’s index score was .48. e administration set a goal to be a 1.0+ school, and through a collaborative effort, which included adding more AP classes and encouraging more students to enroll in the classes and take the tests, the school earned an index score of 1.19 for the 2012 school year. Seventy-one schools in Illinois that participated met the 1.0 minimum. “More students are taking harder classes, and we think that really beneďŹ ts

them for their future,� said Tafoya. Looking to the future, Tafoya said, “It’s nowhere but up [from here]. We think that the opportunities are available, and we have a lot of really capable students that work with a lot of amazing teachers, and we’re here to provide as much challenge as we can. We certainly don’t think we’re done. We just need to keep raising that number and raising it every year.� According to Woodstock School District 200 director of community services Carol Smith, Woodstock North High School is not yet eligible to be ranked, because it is such a new school; however, the understanding is WNHS will be eligible for ranking next year.

Although the committee had typically awarded six scholarships, it chose to give out 10 this year. “We really stew over what we’re going to do, because there’s so much talent,” she said. e students submitted YouTube videos with a sample of their particular talent. A panel of judges evaluated the videos and applications. LeCrone noted the qualifications of the students were as outstanding as their talent. “ese kids aren’t just performers,” she said. “ey

do an incredible amount of work in the community, in sports and in scholastics. You wonder how they have time for all of it.” It seems to work out that there is a wide variety of talents, with winners representing the various schools in the county, and this year is no excep-

tion. e Talent Showcase will feature piano, flute, snare drum, violin and vocal performances as well as presentations from an artist and a creative writer. e Talent Showcase is free and open to the public. A reception will follow in the Opera House Community Room.

For one couple, a devotion to community theater is column has featured husband and wife teams before — Lou and Janie Czarny and Bob and Gloria Carr. Today’s featured couple, Bob and Elaine Riner, met while working on a show at the Opera House. Bob, the theater director at McHenry County College at the time, was acting in the show and Elaine Tony was stage manager. Casalino ey have worked together on countNow Playing less shows for the Woodstock Musical eatre Company and the MCC theatre department. Bob’s theater career dates back more than 50 years. Fresh from a stint in the U.S. Marine Corps, Bob was a 22-year-old undergrad attending Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff when he found himself in a show playing a 90 year-old priest. It was an event that changed his life, as he realized theater was his destiny. Bob became a teacher, teaching in Arizona and Washington, and after completing his master’s degree, at a community college in New York. In 1977, Bob landed the theater director position at MCC and produced his first shows at the Opera House. Bob has professional acting credits and dozens of directing credits at MCC, but it was an acting role in the WMTC production of “Man of La Mancha” in 1984 that changed his life once more. He didn’t know he was looking for a stage manager for his life, but after Elaine managed the show, they became a couple and were married

in 1985. Elaine got her start at the Opera House while a student at Marian Central Catholic High School. Her older brother asked her to help paint sets for a show he was doing at the Opera House. at’s all it took to get her hooked on technical theater. Elaine appeared on stage a couple of times but realized early on that her calling was behind the scenes. After graduating from college, Elaine landed a job as a school speech pathologist and in 1981 returned to the Opera House to work on the crew for the WMTC production of “Company.” For the last 30 years, Elaine has worked nearly every WMTC show, painting, designing, doing lights and sound, and, of course, stage managing. In 1982, she was elected to the WMTC board and has served as an officer for nearly 25 years. Since 1996, Elaine has represented the group on the Opera House Advisory Commission while managing countless shows for WMTC and all the shows Bob directed for MCC until he retired in 2000. Community theater is filled with people like Bob and Elaine. ey devote their lives to bringing shows to the community and enjoy the friendships and sometimes the love that comes with the shows.

Lorraine’s soon to be a Square memory Scrapbooking shop is set to close By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent For the past few years, Kathy Benson has started noticing that scrapbooking is becoming nothing more than a memory. After six years in business, the owner of Lorraine’s Memories Inc., Scrapbooking & More, 110 N. Benton St., is preparing to close her store on the Square. Sadly, she said she has realized as people adapt to fast-paced digital lives, their creativity deteriorates – making scrapbooking a lost leisure. “I knew about three years ago, something was going on in our industry, but I couldn’t put my ďŹ nger on what it was,â€? Benson said. “I had lots of people that would walk in and be like, ‘Oh, scrapbooking. I love scrapbooking. I miss it.’ And I would be like, ‘You miss scrapbooking? Why?’â€? After speaking with people, Benson said she realized many of them “didn’t have time.â€? ey were not only working one job, but they were working two. Instead of attending to activities they wanted to do, Benson said people were busy attending to all their unďŹ nished tasks and then “veggingâ€? in front of the TV as a break and respite instead of winding down with innovation. “What’s happening when we’re creative is we’re touching endorphins and

getting a positive response,â€? Benson said. “When we don’t allow ourselves to enter into that kind of thing, I really think we do kind of just go through the motions. ‌ When you don’t allow yourself time to be creative, when you don’t engage in that activity, we’re becoming a very at society.â€? Going into the business, Benson said she knew she was up against the digital age, but she was not prepared for the effect social media sites like Facebook and Instagram would have on photo sharing – making scrapbooks virtually obsolete. “e funny thing about 35 mm, when we didn’t know what was on the canister, we couldn’t wait to take it in,â€? she said. “We would pay the money that it cost to print it. But when we look at it, and we have instant gratiďŹ cation, we set it aside and think we’re going to get to it, and so we don’t ever print anything. If we don’t ever print anything, we have nothing to scrapbook. On top of that, we get everything we’re looking for. When I put my picture on Facebook and I get 87 likes ‌ we get instant gratiďŹ cation from that. We don’t really have a reason to print it. We’ve shared it with the entire world. e problem is not having a hard copy of that, it will get lost some day or there won’t be a story to go with it.â€? Benson said she is sad to leave her place on the Square, but she might try to continue her business online, selling materials and offering tips to her customers from home. She said she has put a lot of money into the business without taking

much out. She said the expense of owning a business downtown with employee tax, sales tax and overhead costs was too high for her type of business to stay aoat. Benson said she was told by one of her merchandise vendors that Lorraine’s is one of only 150 independent scrapbook stores nationwide. “It’s sad,â€? Benson said. “I’m a little concerned about our town here. We may see a little bit of a domino effect. I hope I’m wrong. But if you don’t have something that’s really set apart, different, custom, something people can’t get online or anywhere else, it’s really tough to make it here.â€? Benson said she thinks the city can do more to help businesses. When she ďŹ rst had ďŹ nancial issues, she said she had the option to move her business to Crystal Lake and be entered into a pool to win a $10,000 grant from the city and $2,000 to $3,000 for each employee. “ere was tons of incentive for me to move, but that was not what I wanted,â€? she said. “Crystal Lake is really excellent at what they do. I hear their chamber is amazing. Our chamber could do well to ďŹ nd out what’s the difference. ... We have such a beautiful Square, but I would hear people say, ‘I just never get out to Woodstock.’ Well, let’s give them incentive. Why is there not enough here for them? Why can’t we get them to come out this way? I don’t claim to have the answers. I think it’s going to take quite a bit. It’s sad because we’ve got such a great town.â€? Benson said she does not have a closing date set.

Hearthstone Manor celebrates nursing, offers scholarship By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent For three nurses, Hearthstone Manor has been work, home and family for at least 25 years. is year, registered nurses Yumi Kawi and Jeanette DeVogelaere celebrate 32 and 30 years at Hearthstone, respectively, and licensed nurse practitioner Barbara Stenglein, celebrates 25. “eir long term commitment and dedication to the residents and the patients that we serve is really their focus,” said Hearthstone Communities president and CEO Terry Egan. “Hearthstone has been in the community an awful long time and to have that kind of stability as part of your nursing team is just really helpful to families and to the residents there.” Kawi, a nurse in the skilled nursing and rehab unit, moved to the United States and started working at Hearthstone after finishing nursing school in her home country, the Philippines. “It was different for me when I came here because we don’t have any nursing homes in the Philippines,” she said. “Everyone stayed with their families. But, the trend is changing. ey’re having nursing homes now, too. People are getting busier, I guess.” DeVogelaere began her training as an aid during high school at Genoa-Kings-

ton. Before coming to Hearthstone, she worked at Planned Parenthood in Chicago. Stenglein, a Woodstock High School graduate, started her nursing in 1966 as an aid at Woodstock’s Yumi Memorial Hospital. Kawi After living in Minnesota, she moved back to Woodstock and started working at Hearthstone Manor in 1988. During their years at Hearthstone Manor, the women witnessed changes in the building and in the nursing homes. e building has undergone a fair amount of remodeling, and the dementia and memory-care units were expanded. e women said, however, because of changes in health care plans and costs, they noticed families are trying to keep their senior relatives at home longer. Although many changes and transitions have occurred, the women said the commitment and dedication of the nurses have remained unwavering. Several other nurses and staff members have served for at least 20 years. ey said the nurses become family to each other and to the residents and their families, celebrating birthdays and

Troop 329 Scout makes Eagle Scout rank By JANET DOVIDIO The Independent Boy Scout Troop 329 honored Ryan Redemske for his achieving the rank of Eagle Scout at a Court of Honor April 5. To achieve the rank of Eagle, a Boy Scout must earn at least 21 merit badges, hold several leadership positions and plan and complete a service project for his community. Redemske earned 26 badges. His favorite was rifle shooting, of which he said, “I liked this one because it helped me learn a new skill.” His favorite camping experience took place at Seabase, a high adventure camp off the Florida Keys. Redemske’s Eagle project was designing, organizing and building an eco-friendly garden shed for the Green Club at Woodstock High School. It was funded by a grant given to the Green Club and a Lowe’s giftcard donation especially for Eagle

bingo victories, and gathering for wedding showers, baby showers and holidays. “I think Hearthstone Manor really is a good place,” Kawi said. “It’s a nice place to work for. We’ve Barbara seen a lot, we’ve been Stenglein through a lot and we’re still here.” ough the nurses enjoy celebrations and day-to-day interactions with their residents, they said the work also is very challenging. “You’ve got to be patient, and you really have to have the heart for it,” Kawi said. “Nursing is a very rewarding and noble career because you deal with human beings.” Stenglein said her work as a nurse is personal because nurses work with real people who may be having a hard time adjusting to their situation. She said she tries to guide her residents, helping with memory cuing and loving them. “My dad always said, ‘treat people the way you want to be treated,’ and that’s so, so true,” Stenglein said. “Especially the ones who come to sheltered care from their home, you have to deal with anger and grief. You just have to work with them and love on them.”

To promote nursing education, president Egan said Hearthstone Manor plans to offer a nursing scholarship this year. In November, Egan was voted the Leadership Greater McHenry County Jeanette program’s distinDeVogelaere guished alumna and could name a charity of choice to receive a donation. As suggested by DeVogelaere, Egan directed the donation to a nursing scholarship to encourage Hearthstone employees to further their education. “A lot of facilities have that and a lot of hospitals offer scholarships and it really helps,” DeVogelaere said. “e cost of tuition and books, even, is so much that I just thought it would be nice to have something. So many of our aids that we work with are so good, and we’d like to see them further their education.” Egan said the scholarship policy is being developed. He said Centegra has made a contribution and donations from the public are welcome. For more information, call Egan at 815-338-1749, email him at egant@ hearthstonewoodstock.org or visit www.hearthstonewoodstock.org.

Redemske said he has several people he would like to thank for their help. ey include Scoutmaster Ted Jankowski, Sandy Brainard, Mike Manke and his mom, Kelly Redemske. He also thanks Mike Wenzel from Ralph’s General Rent-All and several employees in construction sales at Menards in Woodstock for their assistance with donations and discounts. Redemske said, “When I started in Boy Scouts, I learned it was a great achievement to earn this rank. In the past seven years, I’ve watched multiple friends achieve this honor, and it pushed me more to want it myself. It’s something that stays with you forever and shows great pride in finishing something you started.” A senior at Woodstock High School, Redemske will be attending the University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie, Wis., in the fall, majoring in cross-media graphics management.

Pass the biscuits, please Nothing says “down home” like fresh, hot biscuits. Often we think of Southern cooking when the subject of biscuits comes up: biscuits and gravy, chicken and biscuits — pass the grits y’all. Far from being isolated in the South, these quickbreads were made throughout the country as soon as wheat flour began to be available. Early milling of wheat was not as consistent as we are accustomed to, and flour required sifting to remove bits of chaff, incompletely ground grain, and “stuff” (don’t ask). is is no doubt how it was discovered that sifting fluffs the flour and results in a lighter textured biscuit. Made with baking powder, and sometimes a bit of soda, biscuits are called quick breads because they don’t have to rise before baking. Yeastrising doughs also must be kneaded, and before refrigeration was available, maintaining yeast culture for baking was a chore in itself. Biscuits are an example of a recipe that can be made into different foods by managing the moisture content,

and/or handling the dough differently. In the recipe below, increasing the liquid turns biscuit dough into pancake batter. Both pancakes and biscuits are mixed as little as possible to Jame minimize the formaThompson tion of gluten which would make them The Otterchef tough. Flour made of soft wheat is often used by biscuit perfectionists: it has a lower protein content, so naturally forms less gluten. With biscuits, the best rise comes from a soft (moist) dough that allows the baking powder to fully rise before the dough bakes solid on the surface. It should be just firm enough to roll and cut; a little practice with this in mind will yield great biscuits. Note that this dough made very soft can be poached in a stew to make traditional dumplings.

If you like to knead dough, the recipe for biscuits can be turned into a naanlike flatbread. Usually, naan has yeast in it, but knead biscuit dough as you would bread, and it can be formed and grilled as a flatbread. is type of dough does not need to rise and is ready to use as soon as it relaxes enough to shape. If you were wondering about the biscuit dough that comes in cardboard tubes, my best guess is this is also a kneaded dough, which accounts for their strange texture compared to typical quickbread biscuits.

Biscuits/pancakes Ingredients: 2 cups flour 2 to 6 tablespoons shortening (or lard, butter, bacon fat) 2 tablespoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon sugar (optional to aid browning and add sweetness) Milk

Directions: To make biscuits, sift flour and dry ingredients together; cut in shortening of choice; stir in about 3/4 of a cup of milk to form a soft dough. Knead it gently a few times so it holds together; if too soft, add a little more flour and knead in briefly. Roll about 3/4 of an inch thick and cut in 2- to 3-inch rounds. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes until well risen and browned. Brushing the fresh baked tops with butter gives a nice finish. We used to roll the biscuits thin, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, fold over and roll again to 3/4 of an inch. Just sayin’. For pancakes, sift the dry ingredients together. It isn’t necessary to cut the shortening in; it can be melted and added as a liquid. Stir in about 1 1/2 cups of milk to make a batter, and cook on a hot griddle turning once until browned and cooked through. e thicker you make the batter, the more cake-like the pancake and the longer it needs to cook. Experiment with the amount of liquid to find your favorite texture. Many recipes add an egg or two to pancake batter for richness. e flour-shortening mix can be made in large batches and turned into biscuits or pancakes as needed. If using a shortening that requires refrigeration, your mix will require that as well. Testimonials If I offered you $5 to publicly say “apples are wood,” you might be resistant. After all, it isn’t true. But what if I offered you $50 or $500? At some point, the temptation might overcome your interest in telling the truth. So if an actor, sports champion or politician promotes a product and receives big money for doing so, you have to wonder … is it because of the money? Don’t take any wooden apples! Reader question What is the difference between chopped, minced and cut into pieces? Size matters. Minced would be smallest, cut into pieces largest, but these are hardly precise terms. ink about the way the ingredient fits into what you’re cooking. Minced apples in a pie would be much like applesauce; pieces of garlic should not be so large as to become a “surprise!” Most recipes are pretty flexible, just use your common sense.

Bull Valley’s dog park opening soon “I really hope it’s a good turnout,” Vance said. “All of us are going to have our ears open because there are always people that come who have recommendations.” Vance said the village board is open to feedback to fill the needs of the community and those using the park. He said the board hopes to eventually build restroom facilities and plans to put in a well. e well project, however, will cost about $5,000, so for now, visitors are asked to bring water for their dogs. For the rest of the property, plans are underway to restore and conserve the oak savannah and create a public recreation area with trails and informational signs. “It’s just going to be neat to see this thing grow and turn into something that people are going to regularly go to,” he said. “We just want to take it a step at a time. You don’t know exactly what the needs are. It’s one of those things where we’re just going to see where it takes us.” Dog park permits are available for the year.

cord of our history as a community over the last 60-plus years.” WLL opened the year with about 350 players on 30 teams, which is consistent with last year’s numbers, according to McKay. Each team has three managers, and with the WLL board of directors, the league has about 100 volunteers. McKay said the league is planning a senior league for the Challenger Division in 2015 but is not planning any changes for this season. “We are just looking to just build off the last six years,” McKay said. “We had a lot of big changes last year with the transition of the president and the creation of the Avalanche [travel teams].”

Blue Streaks take round one from Thunder Lohmeyer strikes out eight in crosstown contest By JAY SCHULZ The Independent Woodstock and Woodstock North high schools met on the softball field at WNHS April 24 to kick off the crosstown rivalry between the schools this spring, with the Streaks winning 5-1. e under (1-11, 0-5 Fox Valley Conference) scored first in the bottom of the first inning when senior Sierra Meiners drove in senior Rachel Vela, but the Blue Streaks (3-13, 1-5 FVC) answered with three runs in the second inning and never looked back. ey added single runs in the fifth and sixth innings. WHS senior catcher Samantha Baker had two hits and drove in two runs. e Streaks also had RBIs from seniors Rachel Lohmeyer, Sarah Kuespert and Shea Carzoli. Seven players collected hits in an all-around team effort, according to WHS head coach Steve Beard. “A lot of players got hits for us and RBIs for us and made some big defensive plays for us,” Beard said. Beard said the game was much closer than the final score indicated. “Woodstock North did a really nice job of running the bases on us,” Beard said. “ere were many innings when

Kosar’s athletic strengths meant he only needed a few weeks to train his throwing arm for the javelin. Instead of throwing a baseball at a 30-degree angle like he did as a pitcher, Kosar had to learn to throw at a narrower angle to pass the javelin closer to his head. “I spent two to Jack three weeks trying Kosar to force my arm in the right direction,” said Kosar. “I spent a lot of time on the racquetball courts with a tennis ball. It was constant repetition.” Breaking the IIT school record with two meets left in the season leaves Kosar hungry to finish the year, breaking

need it, making plays [in the field ] and cutting down the errors.” Lohmeyer pitched all seven innings for the Streaks, striking out eight to earn the win. WNHS junior Dakota Butler pitched the entire game for the under. e under won both games between the two teams last year, and WHS senior centerfielder Shelby VanSickle said it felt

good to turn the table. “It was nice to finally go out and beat them,” VanSickle said. “It’s always fun to go across town and play with them. … It was a good game. We all played well. We showed up as a team.” Halfway through the season, Beard said he is looking for his team to be more consistent. “e biggest thing I am seeing is I am not seeing consistent hitting or consistent pitching or consistent fielding,” Beard said. “ere are times I really believe that we play well and then we’ll have a couple of mental or physical errors. “We need to continue to learn from our physical and mental mistakes as a team because we are halfway through the season. … We need to be more consistent.” e under have several home games on the schedule, and Riis said he believes that will help build the team’s confidence. “e team is pretty healthy,” Riis said. “We’re getting better every game.” e teams will meet again Monday, May 14, at Bates Park. e junior varsity will play at 4:30 p.m., and the varsity will play afterward under the lights. ey could meet again in the IHSA Class 3A regional tournament, which will be hosted by WNHS in late May. Dates and seedings will be announced May 14.

“There is no reason for you to stick to one sport.” — Jack Kosar 50 meters or perhaps even 63 meters, the mark Hantau threw in his competitive days. But despite all the effort he is putting in on the track, he will still continue to mentor and coach youth baseball players as he always has — but with a little bit different message. “ere is no reason for you to stick to one sport,” said Kosar. “I hear all these 9-year-old players tell me, ‘I like baseball!’ and I tell them to try other things, because you never know what you’ll be good at.”

test, in that they look like us in terms of size,” said WHS athletic director Glen Wilson. “When a Fox Valley team walks in, they don’t look like us. We’ll still have strong competition and good rivalries. ere is the Woodstock rivalry, Harvard and Marengo have a longstanding rivalry.” WHS principal Corey Tafoya said the attraction for the former Big Northern schools is being able to play schools in closer proximity. “Everyone is coming into this for different reasons,” he said. “For them, it’s distance. For us, it’s about playing schools that have similar enrollments.” e decision to create two separate high schools in Woodstock, rather than a combined school with separate campuses, like McHenry East and West, made Woodstock North and Woodstock High School among the smallest schools in the Fox Valley Conference,

which WHS “When a helped to found in 1978.

By comparison, the FVC includes Dundee-Crown, which has about 2,500 students, and McHenry, which has about 2,400. WHS and WNHS Fox Divisionmates Crystal Lake Central and Hampshire have enrollments of 1,571 and 1,185, respectively. Beginning in 2014-15, Johnsburg High

School, with 766 students, will leave the FVC and join the Big Northern Conference. Tafoya said principals from other FVC schools understood District 200’s position. “We asked what they would do if they had enrollments of 800 or 900 and were playing schools with more than 2,500?” he said. “They all agreed with us.” Principals and athletic directors from both high schools assured the board the switch would not cause any sports teams or activities to be eliminated. Woodstock teams would continue to face FVC schools in nonconference competition. “We won’t be losing any sports or activities,” said D-200 Superintendent Ellyn Wrzeski. e required two-year notification gives the participating schools time to add sports they may not have and to at-

tract more schools to the new conference. “It has the potential to go to six to eight schools. We’re not sure yet who they will be, but with five it’s starting to roll,” McAdow said. Marengo and Harvard have received approval from their school boards to join the new conference, while and Burlington Central is in process of seeking approval. “We can sustain the conference with five, and that gives other schools leverage to go before their [school] boards,” Tafoya said. e principals and athletic directors addressed the board in December about their interest in leaving the FVC and have been investigating creating a new conference for several years. “You’ve been talking about this for a long time, and I think it’s a good move,” said school board president Paul Meyer.

WHS, WNHS prepare to exit Fox Valley Conference in 2016 School board approves resolution to join newly formed Kishwaukee River Conference By ELIZABETH HARMON The Independent Woodstock and Woodstock North high schools will exit the

Fox Valley Conference in 2016 and will join with three comparably sized schools in McHenry and Kane counties to form a new athletic conference.

A resolution to change conference membership was approved April 22 by the Woodstock School District 200 Board of Education.

“We’re committed to this,” said WNHS principal Brian McAdow. “We believe it’s better for our schools and better for our students.”

In addition to Woodstock North and WHS, the newlyformed Kishwaukee River Conference will include Marengo Community High School, Harvard High School and Burlington Central High School, all of which will leave the Big Northern Conference. “ese schools pass the eye Please see Conference, Page 27

KOSAR KEEPS THROWING

Marian grad takes advantage of last year of eligibility By MEGAN IVERS The Independent

Marian Central Catholic High School graduate Jack Kosar is a collegiate student-athlete as good as the next. After picking up baseball at age 6, Kosar developed well in high school, found the right college fit and had a successful four-year extension of his competitive baseball career. For all intents and purposes, Kosar’s baseball career could very well be the reason why he is such a strong role model for young baseball players — except it’s not. It’s what has transpired after his baseball eligibility ended that makes Kosar someone many youth should emulate. Looking to use his final season of collegiate eligibility while he finished his master’s degree in finance at Illinois Institute of Technology, Kosar followed the suggestion of IIT track coach Calin Hantau that he try a sport in which he never fathomed he would compete. Kosar chose javelin, which he picked up for the first time in January. “I never thought I would be good at track,” said Kosar, who is the first to admit he was wrong. “I thought I was a baseball kid.” Drills, additional strength training and support from his new coach transformed Kosar from throwing about 20 meters in his first practice sessions to setting an IIT school record and winning first place at the April 17 Concordia University Cougar Invitational with a toss of 49.2 meters. “Not everybody involved in athletics is necessarily athletic,” said Hantau. “Jack is. No matter what sport he does, he is going to have a little bit of an edge. “What I like most is his personality and positive approach to everything. Good day, bad day, he is always willing to work to improve. I know he has bad days, but he will come back tomorrow and do everything better.”

Opening day dedicated to Peasley By JAY SCHULZ The Independent Woodstock Little League opened its 61st season at Merryman Fields April 26. Opening ceremonies were held on Merryman Field No. 7, which was dedicated to longtime Woodstock photographer, journalist and Little League supporter Don Peasley, who died in May 2013. “Don was a 60-year member of the [WLL] board and a mentor to myself and previous president Darren Chonos,” said WLL president Will McKay. “Don was a great example of what any member of a community should be and somebody we can all look up to.” e dedication included the unveiling of a new Peasley Field scoreboard, and a granite monument with a brass plaque just outside the field. e event was attended by Peasley’s daughters, Sarah and Mary. “e dedication of this field to my dad is an honor to him and the work that he’s done for the city of Woodstock and for Little League, and it’s an honor for our family,” said Mary Peasley. “We’re just so proud of him.
