A Texas-based developer and a local investor have presented vastly different proposals to take ownership of the Old Courthouse property on the Woodstock Square. Williamson County Investments, Austin, Texas, submitted a symbolic $1 bid for the city-owned Courthouse and Sheriff’s House on Johnson Street, part of a plan to turn the property into eight residential units while also integrating room for a restaurant, art gallery and other studio space. e proposal calls for the investor to receive at least $1 million in tax money from the city, although city staff and members of the Old Courthouse RFP Review Advisory Committee, which met May 14 to discuss both bids, said it was uncertain what those public funds included. “I was very unclear as to what they were asking for, because we are putting money into the building,” said Nancy Baker, Woodstock’s city planner. “Does this assume that we’re completing a certain number of projects before they acquire it? Does this assume we’re just giving them money? I’m not sure.” e city plans to spend at least $2 million to restore the building before selling it. Williamson County Investments’ proposal also makes use of multiple tax credits and other incentives at the state and federal level. “One of my concerns is that so much of their budget is tax credits and grants,” said committee member Arlene Lynes, who also sits on the city’s Economic Development Commission. “Let’s say we find this is a viable proposal and we get to late 2015 and these things are not coming through.

» OUR VIEW

Remember, honor fallen servicemen, servicewomen For many of us, Memorial Day still evokes images of aging veterans and victims of wars from long ago. e reality, of course, is much different. Recent and ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have rendered those ancient black-and-white images incomplete. Now, as much as in generations before, when we pause to remember fallen servicemen and servicewomen, we must also remember the price paid by the generations of our children and peers. We must see them in color. e struggles faced by the families, friends and comrades of the fallen are present today in the same concrete way they were present during Decoration Day, the precursor to Memorial Day established to honor Union and Confederate soldiers who died fighting the Civil War. It’s doubtful those mourning families of the late 19th and early 20th centuries envisioned their day of commemoration eventually would be marked with mattress sales and discounts on grills and sneakers. It’s equally doubtful the mourning families of today appreciate the gesture. But perhaps they all have hoped for other observations of remembrance and, occasionally, celebration of their loved ones’ services. To that end, Woodstock will hold its annual Memorial Day ceremony and parade in the Park in the Square at 10 a.m. Monday, May 26. Community members, veterans and servicemembers, as well as local dignitaries, will gather to memorialize not just the fallen of decades or generations ago, but the ongoing sacrifices of members of the U.S. military. It’s about more than distant memories. e ceremony on the Square is an annual reminder of the continual sacrifice of this nation’s servicemen and servicewomen.

Welles loved Woodstock When Ralph Waldo Emerson thanked Walt Whitman for an edition of Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass,” Emerson wrote, “I greet you at the beginning of a great career, which yet must have had a long foreground somewhere for such a start.” On May 16 to 18, we commemorated the beginning of Orson Welles’ great career here in Woodstock in the ’30s, as well as its long foreground in Welles’ mentorship at Woodstock’s Todd School by Roger Hill. To Roger Hill, I apply Henry Adams’s observation that “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” Orson Welles would have been the first to emphasize that Roger Hill’s influence on Welles in fact never stopped and remained a lifelong motivator. A towering figure in 20th century culture, Welles has a reputation as an elitist, but actually he possessed a passionate faith in the general audience’s capacity to embrace his work. “Nothing has ever been too good for the public,” he noted to himself

in the early ’40s. “Nothing has ever been good enough for the public.” Orson Welles died at 70, nearly 30 years ago. Next year, in May 2015, Woodstock Celebrates Inc. will celebrate his 100th birthday. As the decades pass, Welles’ greatness as both an American and an international cultural force becomes ever more apparent. e man loved Woodstock, and we wanted Woodstock to know that — and to know him. Kathleen Spaltro, 2014 Event Manager, Woodstock Celebrates, Inc.

Roadway robbery I just read the Citizen Advocates for Public Accountability report on the Randall Road project. I highly recommend it to every resident of this county who is struggling to make ends meet right now. What a ridiculous waste of tax dollars! Ten years ago it took me 10 minutes to drive from Ackman to County Line on Randall Road. Five years ago it took me 10 minutes. Today it takes me… 10

minutes! But the County Transportation Committee wants to spend $135 million – that works out to $1,200 for every family in McHenry County – to “fix” that section of road, cutting the drive time to – are you ready? – 10 minutes! ey claim that if we don’t spend this outrageous sum, the drive time will jump to 30 minutes in a few years. If the drive time hasn’t changed in 10 years, and if population in the county isn’t increasing rapidly, then why should we expect the drive time to suddenly triple? Why should we spend $135 million based on some forecast that defies our everyday experience? Why spend that much money before there is absolutely crystal-clear evidence that traffic on Randall Road is getting materially worse? Why should we, the taxpayers, shell out $135 million on speculations? Contact your County Board members and ask them these questions. And if you don’t contact them, don’t complain when your taxes go up. Al Stenstrom, Woodstock

Sharing ideas, picking up the pace About a month ago, I wrote about the On the Table initiative the McHenry County Community Foundation was sponsoring in conjunction with the Chicago Community Trust. e goal of the initiative was to bring people together May 12 in mealtime conversations to discuss how to work together to strengthen and maintain safe and dynamic communities. CCT and MCCF reached their goals for participation. CCT’s goal was 1,000 tables. In Chicago and the suburbs, more than 11,500 people gathered around nearly 1,100 tables. Here in McHenry County, Robin Doeden, MCCF’s executive director, set a goal of 25 to 30 tables. In our county, more than 250 people gathered around 29 tables for breakfast, lunch or dinner. e conversations around the tables also surpassed both organizations’ expectations for depth of concern and energy in seeking solutions. On the Table hosts were encouraged to share their tables’ ideas by posting them at onthetable2014.com. In addition, Robin asked McHenry County hosts to share their ideas directly with her. To keep the ideas generated from

the conversations in McHenry County top of mind, a word cloud was created. A word cloud is a graphic image composed of words that deďŹ ne a particular subject Cheryl or thought. For Wormley McHenry County On the Table, a Declarations word was chosen to represent each idea raised in the conversations. e words were artfully arranged to provide a graphic summary. e words in the word cloud included transportation, jobs, youth, drug abuse, entrepreneurship, seniors, families, local business, drug abuse, volunteerism, infrastructure, government, education, bullying and more. e cloud is posted on MCCF’s Facebook page. e two most frequently reported topics were the need for more public transportation and jobs that provide a livable wage so people can live and work in the county. Youth participants summarized their conversations by suggesting youth representation

on nonproďŹ t boards and speaking passionately about the need to provide anti-bullying education in the early years of elementary school. So what’s next? Robin said the key is to continue the conversations and to begin talking with people who can effect change. I regret there wasn’t an On the Table discussion in Woodstock. My hope is MCCF will provide similar opportunities in the future and our chamber, city, schools and this newspaper will host tables. Picking up the pace It’s pick-up-the-pace time in the Midwest. Here in Woodstock, we usually start revving up the ďŹ rst or second weekend of May. If Mother’s Day weekend is warm and sunny, Woodstock residents start gathering speed for summer. If Mother’s Day weekend is cool and rainy, we wait a week, because Fair Diddley weekend almost always is beautiful. Midwesterners know they have a four-to-ďŹ ve month window to garden, repair, build, picnic, vacation, swim, play and absorb the sun’s rays. People who live in warmer areas of the country don’t have the same need to

We have had one meal of it so far, and hope for many more. 2013 was a banner year for our asparagus patch. We pretty much lived on a fresh- asparagusbased diet for a month and a half. It was the trailer for the movie called “Heaven,â€? if I ever get to see it. My understanding, however, is that you have to buy that ticket in advance, and I suspect I spent the admission price on cigarettes, beer and arteryclogging Italian beef sandwiches. I already regret it. But I will never regret planting that asparagus. And,

A strange year for gardeners It looks like it’s going to be another strange year for me as a gardener. Some plants — those that don’t need my help — have come up with a comfortable reliability. e crocuses popped up right when they were supposed to, gladdening my heart after a brutal winter. (I have often wondered, though, why they pop up in a slightly different location in my backyard every year. My guess is that they are renters, leaving the security deposit, when the lease is up, as the ďŹ nal month’s rent and moving to the

Education Pizza persuasion

Local businessman provides a tasty incentive for Mary Endres students

By SANDY KUCHARSKI The Independent When Mary Endes Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization volunteer Tobias Herendeen asked Papa Murphy’s in Woodstock to donate a gift card for a free pizza as a classroom prize for the school’s Box Tops for Education program, he was taken off guard by the answer. Owner Chris Schinke told him he had a better idea. He said he would provide a pizza party for the winning classroom each month throughout the school year. “I thought it was a lot for someone to do for the school,” said Herendeen. As the Box Tops coordinator for the past three years, Herendeen’s job is to collect the box tops turned in each month and total them. After the box tops are totaled for the month, the principal announces the winning class over the intercom. “e classroom yells, and the other classrooms can hear,” said Herendeen. “ey just go crazy.” He also prepares Box Top coupons for shipping to the company for redemption and encourages participation among the students. He collects prizes from local businesses as incentives. “I’ve gotten donations,” said Herendeen, “but this was the first time that a business owner has come back to me and said, ‘I have a better idea.’ It turned out to be a big deal for the kids.”

e incentives have paid off. Herendeen estimated by the time everything is redeemed for this year, the earnings from Box Tops for Education will amount to nearly $2,000. “We try to do a lot of stuff like that,” said Schinke. “It’s good for the community. It’s good for us, and it gets our name out there.” Papa Murphy’s has been a part of the community for more than a de-

cade. Schinke often visits schools and various groups to do presentations on pizza-making. He said, “We’re starting to see the kids we did presentations for, people that we touched back then, coming in and looking for jobs. It’s crazy that we’ve been here that long.” In appreciation for Schinke’s donation and the persuasive effect it had on the kids to promote their fundraising efforts, the PTO awarded him a plaque.

WHS, WNHS students take part in state math competition By JANET DOVIDIO The Independent Five students from Woodstock High School and one student from Woodstock North High School participated in the Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics state competition May 3 at the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign. WNHS senior Bryce Kille placed 20th in the pre-calculus division. e five WHS students competing at the state level were freshman Andrew Brewer, sophomore Kitt Garmisch, junior Dillon Nerland and seniors Joey Primus and Graham Ellinghausen. eir adviser, Jai Sharma, said 12 student participants have practiced since October, and the five advanced to the state finals.

e calculator team event is especially intense. Teams are given 20 minutes to solve 20 questions using a graphing calculator. Students divide the problems among themselves while one member runs between them checking for correct answers. Only three calculator teams advance from regionals to the finals. WHS was one of the three teams. “is type of competition provided the challenges our advanced math students need,” said Sharma. “ey meet students from all around the state who share the same passion for mathematics.” e WHS students barely made it back in time for their prom that same evening, but Sharma said the discussions during the bus ride home were not about prom but instead about the math problems they faced that day. All competitors had to qualify first at the regional competition. Both levels consisted of individual events and team competitions. Jeremy Boswell assists Sharma in coaching the WHS team. Carol Koltz is the WNHS coach. News of recognitions and milestones can be sent to Janet Dovidio at fetjetjd@aol.com.

Woodstock native moves up the ladder at studio Amy Reinhard, a WHS grad, is named president of a division at Paramount Home Media Distribution By JAY SCHULZ The Independent Woodstock High School graduate Amy Reinhard continues to add to her impressive resumé. On May 2, Reinhard, the 1992 WHS valedictorian, was named president of worldwide television and home media acquisitions for Paramount Home Media Distribution. “I will be handling worldwide TV licensing,” Reinhard said. “What that means is taking all of our film product and selling it to basic cable networks and digital players around the world. “Every time you see a Paramount movie on FX or Netflix or Amazon Prime or any of those similar services around the world, I’m doing the business deals.” “Amy is a seasoned, strategic executive with strong management skills, and I am confident she will bring renewed focus and insights to our approach to television licensing,” said Dennis Maguire, president of Paramount Worldwide Home Media Distribution, in a press release. Reinhard was named executive vice president and general manager of Para-

mount Domestic Home Media Distribution in November 2011. Prior to that she

was executive vice president of Worldwide distribution strategy and business operations for Paramount Home Entertainment and was responsible for defining and developing the business strategies for delivering products to customers. Before joining the home entertainment division, Reinhard was senior vice president of strategic planning and business development for the studio where she oversaw the green-light process and long-range planning and also managed the analysis of strategic initiatives and investments. Reinhard said the promotion is another stepping stone in her career path. “It is where I want to be in the sense I’ve done so many things in the movie industry over the past 12 years,” Reinhard said. “is kind of rounds out my understanding of the industry, and I’m hoping it sets me up for what I want to do in the future, which is hopefully to break off and work at a higher level in management or take higher-level responsibilities in the entertainment industry.” Reinhard lives in Los Angeles and last visited Woodstock in June 2013. She said it’s funny how she can use improvements

“It’s just a fascinating industry. It’s so different, this industry, from what I know and what I grew up with in Woodstock.” — Amy Reinhard, Paramount Home Media Distribution in technology, something that has dramatically changed her industry over the last decade, to stay in contact with her family and friends through social media. “It’s just a fascinating industry,” Reinhard said. “It’s so different, this industry, from what I know and what I grew up with in Woodstock. I feel like, as this digital age progresses and information flows more freely, those worlds are getting closer. “It’s just crazy. I went back for my 20 year reunion in 2012, and it felt like, in some respects, I had never left because I can keep up with their families and how their lives progress all through the Internet these days.”

Keeping it local In my opinion, one of the main advantages of living in a small town is that “everybody knows everybody.â€? I never knew how valuable this is to business until I began my business in 2007. I also learned how important each resident of Woodstock is to the success or failure of our town. It is so important, without sounding trite, to “SHOP LOCAL.â€? When it comes to our choices regarding shopping, whether it is retail or services, our conscious choice Rodney to keep money in Woodstock is the "Pags" most important Paglialong thing we can do to help our commuMinding Your nity grow and stay Business strong. Like a typical business owner, early on I made purchases based mostly on cost. Sound familiar? It doesn’t matter if you are a consumer or a business, no one wants to spend more money than they have to. But I am grateful that two local business owners on the Square helped shaped my business and opened my eyes to the value of keeping business local. First, Terry and Mary Pirro gave me advice that was probably the best business advice I have ever received. Pirro’s Ristorante was one of Wall-Pro’s very ďŹ rst customers. I remember being so excited to help them ďŹ nd colors and faux ďŹ nishes. Terry had asked me where I was going to buy my paint, and I told him I would go to a paint store in McHenry because I thought I had a good discount. Here is the lesson; he said to me, “No you won’t! You’ll buy all your materials from Lloyd’s here on the Square!â€? He went on to educate me about the importance of supporting local business. e few dollars I would have saved on materials would have been used up in time and fuel. And I would not have developed a trusting relationship with Dan and Cheri Gould, now-retired owners of Lloyd’s Paint ‘n Paper. Dan taught me the importance of having a local telephone number. When Dan gave my number to someone local, he would give my 815 home number and not my 847 business cell number. After a long time, I asked Dan, “Why do you give out my home number? I’d rather you give referrals to my cell number.â€? He said, “If I give someone your number, I want them to know you are a local guy.â€? e next day I arranged to have a dedicated 815 business line. I am so grateful to have learned early in my business to keep my money local and the importance of having a local presence.

NEW BUSINESS

Banquet hall opens in Wonder Lake By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent Banquets are booking back up at the former Marquise Banquet facility at 4117 E. Wonder Lake Road, Wonder Lake. Now named Birchwood Hall, the facility is owned by Debra Mindham and Ellie Railton and officially opened for Mother’s Day, May 11. A partnership that “formed over brownies� and shared culinary experience at restaurants and on tour boats in Lake Geneva, Mindham and Railton paired their passion and talent to build a banquet and catering business. Much to their delight, the Wonder Lake-area community immediately poured into the banquet hall to attend the Mother’s Day brunch and began booking events once they learned the facility had opened. “It’s really a hub for the community,� Railton said. “It’s been made very clear from everyone that’s come in that this is where everyone has had their parents’ anniversaries. This is where the companies have gotten together. All the local business owners have had their functions here. It’s been a lot to the community. ... We want to get a feel for what was missing and offer that back again.� Railton said she and Mindham stumbled upon the open banquet hall while searching Craigslist for a commercial-sized kitchen sink.

BIRCHWOOD HALL Address: 4117 E. Wonder Lake Rd., Wonder Lake Phone: 815-653-5100

“We walked inside, saw the potential, and the kitchen won me over in about 30 seconds flat,� she said. The duo closed on the building in just 27 days and began working to remodel it to fit their clean and classic style. Railton said they enjoy the peaceful, more rural, locale and named the hall after the birch trees growing on the property. Railton said Birchwood Hall is a versatile facility, accepting all sorts of event bookings and offers an extensive menu and off-site catering and deliveries. The hall will be open every week for Friday night fish fries beginning May 23, unless it is booked for another function. They also plan to be open to the public soon for Sunday brunches and other events like weeknight dinner theaters. With 28 years experience as a pastry chef and owner of Tarts & Truffles Cakes & Catering, formerly located on the Woodstock Square, Mindham said Birchwood will be able to supply inhouse and off-site events with dessert bars and wedding cakes. Mindham said she is looking forward to creating a new expectation

of banquet hall food at Birchwood by cooking and baking homemade cuisine using fresh and local ingredients. “There is a banquet mentality that, if it’s hot, it’s good enough,â€? she said. “We don’t fall under that mentality. It’s more of a restaurant experience here. We don’t open cans. The salad dressings, the rolls, anything that we put on, it’s made. The gravy is ours. ‌ And we don’t do dried-out chicken breast.â€? The partners have developed a network of people who they said are as passionate about supplying ingredients as they are about preparing food. “We have a lot of goals and a lot to do still, but I think first and foremost will be trying to have a great venue for banquets,â€? Mindham said. Mostly, the business will be run by family and close friends. Mindham’s husband, Chris, and seven children: Nick, Joel, Mason, Madison, Kelsey, Samantha and Jonathan are all pitching in. Railton’s son Lucas is not quite old enough to help out, but she said her friends have been instrumental in getting the business off to a successful start. “We have the intent of it staying Birchwood Hall for many, many, many years,â€? Railton said. “The nice thing about our business is we have the resources to make sure this place stays open.â€? For more information, visit www. facebook.com/BirchwoodHall.

Knitting group makes a name for itself with donations By JANET DOVIDIO The Independent Several years ago, Kay Darby and Judy Haimbaugh of First Presbyterian Church, Woodstock, heard about prayer shawl projects at other churches. Because they each had the necessary knitting or crocheting skills and felt this was a very worthwhile project, they proposed it to the congregation. ey recruited several additional participants. is work has now been part of the church’s mission since 2010. e ladies needed a name for their group.

A recent donation of shawls to Turning Point in Woodstock prompted Turning Point Executive Director Jane Farmer to write, “Your donation will directly impact the women, children and men who walk through our doors.

Benevolent bikers

Weekend warriors come out to support the Little Angels

By SANDY KUCHARSKI The Independent e south side of Woodstock was buzzing with activity Sunday morning … literally. It was the sound of more than 1,200 motorcycles heading out on the 27th annual Little Angels Pledge Run. e charity ride, hosted by Woodstock Harley-Davidson where the center of operations was located, staged hundreds of bikes at the former Farm & Fleet parking lot at the corner of Route 47 and Highway 14. e sun was shining as riders were sent out in groups of about 50. With police stopping traffic, they headed south on Route 47 and turned west on Route 176 on an 80-mile route through rolling countryside that took them as far as Roscoe. e loop route brought them back into Woodstock on Kishwaukee Valley Road. eir ride ended at Woodstock Harley-Davidson with an afternoon party. As the riders exited the parking lot at the beginning of the ride, they were cheered on by some of their biggest fans, a reminder of why they were riding. Six of the children from Little Angels, a home for children and young adults with severe handicaps and complicated medical needs, were waving at each passing bike and holding up signs of appreciation. “We have one bus so we can bring six kids to the event,” said Mary Jean Adkins. “We choose the ones who like noise. We always want to remind the bikers that this is really what’s its about. ey are raising money for these 56 very special, wonderful kids.” In 1988, the Elgin Harley Owners Group was looking for a way to give back to the community. After a couple of charities turned them down because of the negative image attached to “bikers,” they approached the administrator of Little Angels and a heavenly partnership was formed. “e stereotype of bikers is actually changing,” said Bob Sturges, a member

of the McHenry County Road Pirates. “e hard riding, hell raising [stereotype] is starting to go away. We’re a riding club, not a gang.” Originally connected with a local dealership, the membership of the Elgin Harley Owners Group evolved over time. ey became the Elgin Area Organization of Motorcycle Riders, an independent biker group which meant they could attach to any dealership they wanted to. Woodstock Harley-Davidson stepped in and has hosted the run for eight years. Located on Route 58 on the eastern edge of Elgin, Little Angels is a stateof-the-art facility offering round-theclock skilled nursing, therapeutic and habilitation services in a warm, caring environment. With the state of Illinois making cuts in Medicaid payments for existing services, cutting reimbursements for specialized care and delaying payments, Little Angels has turned to relying on fundraising to continue offering services to its residents. e annual pledge run has become a lifeline for Little Angels and is its largest fun-

draiser each year, helping fund projects like a specialized day programing center. Wayne Kirkpatrick, a member of Top Cats Illinois – a club comprised of business owners and executives – has participated in the ride for more than 15 years. “One of the neatest memories of the first ride is when we stopped at the Little Angels home, and you could see the impact you were having. ey had just built [the Cathy Freeman Center for Developmental Training] at the time.” e Illinois Route 66 H.O.G. Chapter had a large group of riders in the event. “ese are rides we do every year,” said Jim Dyers. Addressing the stereotype that leather-clad packs of motorcyclists are evil, Dyers said, “Keep in mind that there are 1-percenters and 99 percenters. e 1-percenters give us a bad name.” Pointing to his cohorts, he said, “ey all look mean, and how much money are they going to raise here today?” e ride brought in $152,000 for Little Angels as of May 18.

Members planted a Douglas fir at Community High School in 1932. Several donations have enhanced the Square: 14 concrete planters in 1993; landscaping around the bandstand in 2002; daffodil and iris bulbs planted in 2003; and money for Opera House landscaping. e Woodstock Library also is a major beneficiary of garden club efforts, including monthly floral arrangements for several decades, 200 daffodil bulbs planted in 1991 and gardening book donations since the 1930s. Current officers include Brenda Dahlfors, president; Vicky Harrington, first vice president; Kristin Kleinschmidt, second vice president; Barb Donnelly, treasurer; Barb Oughton, recording secretary; and Lydia Donohue, corresponding secretary. Members are especially proud of the two $1,000 scholarships given each year to high school seniors pursuing horticultural careers. ere have been 13 scholarships since 2005. “e Woodstock Garden Club is as much about the incredible people that have become my friends as it is the projects we do,” said Dahlfors. “ese women make me feel welcome as well as important.

Creekside Life Skills kids take center stage By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent ough the students presented a tale as old as time, the Creekside Middle School Life Skills and Target programs’ rendition of “Beauty and the Beast“ May 15 was ďŹ lled with modern musical dance numbers and fun onstage performances that kept the audience entertained. Creekside autism teacher Joan omas said about 25 special education students had been practicing since February for their year-end play. With the help of the students’ parents, who supplied the costumes; the art club, which made the props and backdrops; the related arts music class, where they learned their dance routines; and their peers in the Best Buddies program, the students presented their play for Prairiewood Elementary School audiences. “ey just come alive on stage,â€? omas said. “Activities like this help because of the social interaction within the school setting. It’s so hard for them to do things like this: A) because they’re typically afraid of crowds; and B) they don’t always have the right tools to interact within a large group, even with their own peers. is is a natural way for them to interact and feel comfortable and safe and have fun with their peers, because it’s in the school setting.â€? omas said the play also is used as an assessment tool. e students had been learning about socially acceptable behavior this year, and the play – performed in front of the public – was a way for them to demonstrate their lev-

els of accomplishment. Eighth-grader Isiah Bryant, who played the prince and the Beast, said the dancing was his favorite part of the play. ough it was a little difďŹ cult to learn all his lines, he said he had fun being the Beast. “It would be cool,â€? Bryant said, referring to his recommendation for others to try acting. roughout the play, Creekside Best Buddies helped guide, crew for and encourage their peers in the play. omas said the Best Buddies program at Creekside consists of 107 students, the largest middle school chapter in the state. “It’s a whole new way to make new friends,â€? said sixth-grade Best Buddy Eden Janiga. “I wasn’t really close when I ďŹ rst met my buddy, but now we are.â€? Seventh-grader Anna Rowan said she joined the program because of her experience working with students with her mom, who is a special education teacher. “I would recommend joining Best Buddies because it’s a different way to look at a person, not just because of the way they look or the way they do things, but more of how they are friends with you,â€? she said. At the end of the play, the students and their Best Buddies took to the stage in the cafeteria for an encore and danced to “What Does the Fox Say.â€? Superintendent Ellyn Wrzeski attended the fun-ďŹ lled event and the students honored her with owers, celebrating her ďŹ nal year with Woodstock School District 200.

Mush: Not just for huskies If your grandmother makes it, if I make it at home, if you read about it in historical cookbooks: it’s mush. However, when I make it at work, it is polenta and comes with toppings a lot less homey than sausages and syrup. “What?” you say. You thought polenta was some classy Italian dish? No, it’s really one of those simple things cooked straight from the heart: flavorful and satisfying. You can dress it up and take it downtown, but I doubt it would have enjoyed the same popularity under the name of mush. Whatever you call it and however Jame you top it, the boiled Thompson cornmeal base is exactly the same. If The Otterchef you buy “polenta” in the store instead of cornmeal, you’re just paying a higher price for the same product. (Note: this is not referencing the precooked polenta that comes in a plastic tube). ere are unlimited delicious ways to serve polenta. I was using it a lot in the early ’90s at e Wild Asparagus both as an entrée and as an appetizer. In some preparations, it can even be an ingredient. Polenta reminds me — I want to discuss recipe instructions. In making something from a recipe, understanding the instructions is, in my opinion, far more important than having exact measurement of the ingredients. You want to understand the process and what will happen to the food as you work. e better grasp you have on the process the more able you are to prepare food from recipes or even without recipes. A lot of recipe writers give instructions based on their feelings and habits, and it is helpful to sort these out from the working parts of the text. I had a recipe once that instructed you to ”stir the polenta in one direction constantly for 45 minutes.” Stir in one direction? 45 minutes? I like to imagine that instruction came from an ornery mother-inlaw. It is unnecessary. Two common instructions: “stir with a wooden spoon,” and “cook in a nonaluminum pan” are impossible in the typical professional kitchen (health departments frown on wooden spoons, and most commercial kitchens have nothing but aluminum pans). Nevertheless, we make those foods just fine. I try not to micromanage in my recipes – “dry on paper towels” is just one way; I tend to use cloth. ere

Public Building Commission accepting applications

The McHenry County Board is currently accepting applications from individuals interested in appointment to the McHenry County Public Building Commission. A strong financial background is preferred, with engineering and/or architectural experience desired. One vacant position is available for a fiveyear term. Application forms are available at the County Board Office, Room 209, McHenry County Government Center, 667 Ware Road, or at the county’s website, http://www.co.mchenry.il.us/ home/showdocument?id=12290.

is usually more than one good way to do any task; the important thing is getting a good result. Make a point of weeding out extraneous instructions and understanding what is really happening to the food. Polenta with Bleu Cheese 1 cup yellow corn meal (not self-rising!) 3 cups water 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 cloves garlic minced 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons sherry or Madeira (optional) 1 cup tomato sauce (tomato paste with water at about 1 part paste: 2 parts water also will work) Bring 2 cups of water and salt to a boil. en blend corn meal and remaining water thoroughly, and whisk it into the boiling water. Stir until polenta returns to a boil and thickens. Turn down heat and stir for a couple more minutes. Pour into a 3-cup mold such as a small bread pan; chill. Make a light tomato sauce: sauté garlic in oil until golden; add wine and tomato sauce and simmer for a few minutes to blend flavors. Adjust consistency with water, and add salt if needed. Slice firm polenta 1/4-inch thick and sauté carefully in oil until lightly browned and crispy. For each serving, put about 1/4 cup of tomato sauce on an oven-proof serving dish. Place 2 slices of polenta on the sauce and top with bleu cheese of choice. Gorgonzola, of course, would be traditional, about 1 ounce is great, or more if you like. Melt cheese under the broiler or in a hot oven. is is a great appetizer, or replaces the pasta course in an Italianstyle meal. Safe to drink? One of the surprising things to me is the belief by some that organic-farming methods result in safer foods across the board. Particularly in the area of raw milk, there is no reason to imagine because the feed has no pesticides and the cattle are given no antibiotics, that somehow there is less chance of “germs” being present. ey’re “organic,” too. Notably common are salmonella and listeria. Salmonella will make you really sick: listeria can cause miscarriage and fetal death, and sometimes death in adults. is seems to be a pretty significant risk, while the benefits of raw milk are not scientifically proven at this time and might not be worth the risk anyway. Milk sources may be tested for bacteria, but bacteria are extremely tiny in relation to the volume of milk. Relying on testing would be like taking a bite of Florida and saying: “Oregon

tastes good.” Reader question My son’s athletic team has “pasta parties” before their games. What else can we serve other than a spaghetti dinner? Like everything nutrition-related, there are many answers regarding “”carb loading.” Here is an article from the Mayo Clinic on the subject: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/carbohydrate-loading/ MY00223.

mato sauce. One of my faves is with a ton of garlic, a little crushed red pepper, sliced Italian sausage, mushrooms and lots of chopped parsley. Pancake dinners, or nachos with meat, beans and cheese have tons of carbs and good “teen appeal.” Don’t use canned nacho cheese sauce; that is not food!

Marian also has mixed up its lineup throughout the season and added in some competitions with schools like Crystal Lake Central, Prairie Ridge and Cary-Grove. Prior to this year, the Hurricanes did not often play the larger schools, making seeding for the sectional a bigger challenge. With Shin’s strong win against a Cary-Grove opponent early in the season (1-6, 7-6, 3-6) and a solid second-place showing at the recent Crystal Lake Central Tournament, Larsen is hopeful Shin can progress at sectionals this weekend. “ey’re not as fearful of the unknown as they have been in the past,” said Larsen. “[Playing top teams earlier this season] was very helpful. ey know what they are up against and what they have to do.” Herba and Rost also may have a shot at qualifying for state. After turning out to be a strong doubles team in 2013, the pair has developed an uncanny ability to challenge their opponents. “ey trust each other, and they know their own strengths and weaknesses,” said Larsen. “ey know it is win or go home.” e Hurricanes will rely on junior Mitchell Fernandez at No. 2 singles. Seniors Austin Lee and Robert Morehead will play at No. 2 doubles while senior Brian Casey and junior Oliver Rost will compete at No. 3 doubles. For more information about the sectional at Cary-Grove, visit www. ihsa.org.

Walsh cited his future coach Brian Porterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience as a reason he wanted to attend SIU-Carbondale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a 17.9 vaulter collegiately, and I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be able to help me push myself,â&#x20AC;? Walsh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a fun guy to be with. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been

there two years, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built their vault program from the ground up.â&#x20AC;? Walsh said he is undecided on his focus for his bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree, but he wants to get his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in sports science.

e Woodstock North High School girls softball team got revenge on crosstown rival Woodstock High School May 14 with a 14-5 win under the lights at Bates Park. e under brought their hitting bats, pounding out 14 hits, which was a big difference from the previous meeting between the two teams when the under left five runners in scoring position in a 5-1 loss April 24. “e last time we played them, we left five players in scoring position, and we couldn’t get the hits when we needed it,” said WNHS head coach Pete Riis. “is time around, we got 14 runs on 14 hits. e base running was much better. We forced the issue on the base paths.” e game looked to be a back-andforth battle, with the lead changing hands three times by the fourth inning. e Blue Streaks led 5-4 after four innings, but the under scored four runs in the fifth inning and three in the sixth and seventh to pull away. For the under, senior Sierra Meiners had five hits and scored four runs; sophomore Danielle Chamberlain had two hits and two RBIs; and sophomore Paige Schnulle had three hits. For WHS, seniors Samantha Baker and Rachel Lohmeyer each had two hits, and Shea Carzoli hit a solo home run. Junior Dakota Butler got the win for the under and Lohmeyer took the loss for the Streaks. e under are 4-19 (1-9 in the Fox Valley Conference) and have won three games in a row, defeating Rockford Christian, WHS and Round Lake. “e last few games for us have been good,” Riis said. “We’ve been scoring more runs, so the hitting is starting to come around late in the season. at’s when you want it to come around – right before the regionals start.” e game marked the first time the teams played each other under lights. “It worked out great,” Riis said. “It was senior night for Woodstock. We had a lot of alumni come out. e crowd was bigger. … It was probably the biggest crowd I have seen in a while.” WHS (5-22, 2-10 FVC) will play WNHS in the first round of the IHSA Class 2A regional tournament at 10 a.m. Monday, May 25, at WNHS. Meiners said she is excited to play WHS one more time but is sad the season is coming to an end. “I’m excited,” Meiners said. “I like playing Woodstock because its a nice

Streaks shine at host sectional 4x800 team breaks school record, Brown wins 100 high hurdles By JAY SCHULZ The Independent Woodstock High School hosted 14 schools for the IHSA Class 2A sectional track and field meet May 15, and came out one of the big winners for the day. e Blue Streaks finished third with 70 points, behind Hampshire, 101, and Grayslake Central, 72, and qualified in five events for the IHSA state track and field meet to be held Friday and Saturday, May 23 and 24, at Eastern Illinois University, Charleston. e highlight of the day for the Streaks was the 4x800-meter relay team, which placed first with a time of 9 minutes, 32.46 seconds, winning the event by almost 22 seconds. e 4x800 relay team, seniors Maura

Beattie and Lacey Heaver, sophomore Grace Beattie and freshman Kate Jacobs, broke the school’s 16-year-old record by more than nine seconds. “It’s just an amazing accomplishment for these kids,” said head girls track and field coach Steve Erwin. “ey all just went out like crazy. ey had just missed it at conference. ey were hungry for it.” A key for the Streaks was Heaver, who set a personal record in the event. “I realized the reason I wasn’t doing my best: I just thought too much and worried too much about having to run a certain time,” Heaver said. “Before the race I told myself to just run because you like to run. I didn’t really worry. I just got the baton and gave it my all.” According to Erwin, WHS has never had a relay team in any sport place at a state event. “ey are really excited about being the first ones to possibly do it,” Erwin said. “eir first goal all season was to get the school record,” said boys and girls

distance coach Matt McCulley. “e second goal is to get up on the podium down at Charleston, so business isn’t done yet. ey are definitely taking that approach. ey are very calm, cool and collected. ey’re going to be ready next week.” Junior Nora Brown won the 100 high hurdles with a time of 16.84. “It’s just an awesome experience for [Nora] because she’s worked real hard on her form and her strength and her speed,” Erwin said. “It’s really paid off for her.” “It felt really good,” Brown said. “I was really nervous because my coach told me I was seeded first a couple of days before the meet. I didn’t expect it at all.” Current 3,200-run state champion Maura Beattie won the sectional event easily with a time of 10:50.70. “I can’t believe it’s already over,” Beattie said. “It feels like I was just starting my cross-country season my freshman year.
