bor Relations Board alleges the city surprised public works employees by holding a meeting in November to discuss new health insurance policies and reduced benefits. Brought by the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150, which represents many of Woodstock’s public works employees, the complaint says the meeting was held without first alerting the union. A hearing date has not been set by the labor relations board.

As long as they were on the podium, I knew they would be happy. … It was a great season for them.” “ey ran the school record,” said head girls track and field coach Steve Erwin. “ey ran faster than what they ran last week. ey got the medal. ey got beat by some very good teams. ey ran their hearts out.” e team, seniors Maura Beattie and Lacey Heaver, sophomore Grace Beattie and freshman Kate Jacobs, is the first relay team of any sport from the school to medal in any state event. “It’s really cool to make Woodstock history with Maura,” Grace Beattie said. “It’s pretty crazy to think we are the first team in Woodstock, swimming or running, to make it up on the podium.” “I didn’t think it was going to happen at the beginning of our running season,” Heaver said. “We weren’t looking that

e Democratic candidate for Illinois’ 14th Congressional District launched his townhall-style campaign push in Woodstock May 22. About 60 people gathered at the Woodstock Public Library to meet Dennis Anderson at the first such meeting the candidate has held since defeating John Hosta in the primary election. “I happen to like Woodstock,” Anderson said. “We’ve got a big district, and Woodstock was as good a place as any to start.” Members of the public asked Anderson for his opinion on matters ranging from the labeling of genetically modified organisms — he’s in favor of it — to his thoughts on the influence of money in politics — “there’s too damn much,” he said. Anderson styled himself as a moderate, contrasting his positions on issues such as the Affordable Care Act and the Violence Against Women Act with those of incumbent Republican Randy Hultgren, whom he described as too extreme. He accused Hultgren and his colleagues of “distracting” the public from issues surrounding job creation and the economy with repeated, unsuccessful attempts to repeal Obamacare, among other things. Hultgren, who won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010, defeated Anderson in the 2012 election with about 59 percent of the vote. “I hope to highlight the economic issue,” Anderson said. “e recovery

is going fine for the people at the top. … But it’s the other people who have taken a hard hit.” Anderson said his townhall tour will continue into the fall and will include about 20 to 25 public meetings. “I expect to get some pretty good ideas from people,” he said. Anderson lives in Gurnee with his wife, Susan. He is retired, having ended his career in 2010 as the assistant director for research support at Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center, Maywood. e 14th Congressional District covers most of McHenry County as well as parts of DeKalb, DuPage, Kane, Lake, Kendall and Will counties.

movies.” Mazrimas said guests now can purchase tickets at every box office station, including self-service stations. He said classic cinemas owner Willis Johnson plans to bring in as many historic elements as possible to keep with the classic feel, including walls of theater memorabilia and original artifacts like a chandelier and the addition of historic movie posters in the hallways. “We enjoy architecture, and we enjoy working on older buildings,” Johnson said. “e Woodstock – or e Miller, as it was originally – was really fun. ere was some heartache, but overall, a lot of fun. When you stand back and look at it, we think it came out pretty well.” Johnson said the restoration of the dome and replications of decorative elements like the grilles on the main auditorium walls and the plaster medallions on the ceiling in the lobby were essential to bringing the 1927

A brief history of the Woodstock Theatre Opened in 1927 as the Miller Theater, what is now known as the Woodstock Theater was founded by John C. Miller as a 650-seat movie palace complete with a pipe organ and domed ceiling — the latter of which was restored during the cinema’s recent renovation. In 1929, the theater was the first in McHenry County to show “talkies,” or movies with sound. The Miller changed hands several times from the time it was built until 1979, when it was purchased by Woodstockians Bill Freund, Virgil Smith, Alan Cornue and Don Peasley. They modernized the building before eventually selling it to Willis and Shirley Johnson, who reopened it in 1988 as Classic Cinemas Woodstock Theater.

Welles festival organizers pleased with ‘passionate’ turnout By SANDY KUCHARSKI The Independent

For Orson Welles aficionados, Woodstock was the place to be the weekend of May 16 and 17, as the city played host to the Orson Welles Todd eatre 80th Anniversary Festival. Peter Gill, spokesperson for Woodstock Celebrates, the nonprofit that produced the event said, “For a first-time festival like this, it was highly successful.” e event appealed specifically to Welles enthusiasts, drawing attendees from across

Union

the country. “It was somewhat of a niche market,” Gill said, “because the people that were really interested in Welles were really interested in Welles.” Gill considered all the events associated with the fest to be well-attended, including three discussion sessions at Stage Left Café, led by passionate presenters. e audiences at each of the sessions averaged 50 to 70 people who Gill described as really into Welles. eir enthusiasm showed as the crowd was very engaged in the discussions, asking questions and making comments. “It was a very passionate

group of people about a subject that has very firm roots in Woodstock,” he said. e highlight of the weekend was a performance on the Opera House stage, by RG Productions radio theater group, of Welles’ scripts, including “e War of the Worlds,” which drew an audience of about 220. Classic Cinemas Woodstock eatre joined in on the festivities, hosting the Orson Welles Film Festival. e theatre held showings of three classic Welles films, culminating with the crown jewel, “Citizen Kane.” Mike Wozny, theater manager said the showings

were well-attended. He said popular comment from patrons was, “I haven’t seen this on the big screen in decades!” Visitors also enjoyed touring the e Old Court House Arts Center multimedia tribute to Orson Welles, which will be on display until Saturday, May 31, and the Woodstock Public Library’s archival display of Todd School photos and memorabilia, which will remain on display until June 1. Woodstock Celebrates was founded on the premise of celebrating people and events that are part of our local heritage. Gill said, “e magic that

happened in the late ’20s and early ’30s with Orson Welles in Woodstock was paramount to his becoming the genius he was.” Next year, Woodstock Celebrates is making plans to celebrate Welles’ 100th birthday. e consensus from the attendees at this year’s event was very positive and most have indicated they plan to return. In planning next year’s event, Gill stressed that it will not be a repeat of this year and, “While it appealed to a niche market this year, we want to make it more accessible to the public next year.”

Ed Maher, the union’s communications director, said the November meeting not only violated state labor law for its direct dealing with employees, but also violated the union’s collective bargaining agreement with the city. “An elementary reading of the contract would certainly convince anyone that you cannot change these benefits without consulting the union for negotiations first,” Maher said. “But the city had already purchased a health care plan for all its employees in the city. ey were substantially reducing the benefits.” Maher said by the time Local 150 was informed of the meeting by concerned members, the city had already purchased a separate plan that offered benefits it believed were comparable to those in the agreement with the union. Maher said that cost taxpayers an additional $100,000. “ey went out and purchased a plan that frankly was putting the cart way before the horse,” Maher said. “ey purchased a plan, realized they were not able to enroll the members in this plan - per the contract - so they purchased a separate plan, at considerable extra cost to the taxpayers.” Woodstock Human Resources Director Deborah Schober said the city disagrees with the union’s figures. In its written response to the labor board, the city also denies the allegation that union representatives weren’t notified of the meeting, stating that the meeting “was held by a unit employee based upon his participation in the city’s health insurance committee as a representative of the public works department.” But Maher said the low-ranking union

member present during the discussion could not represent members in such a meeting. “When a union is elected to represent a group of employees, its representative is the exclusive bargaining agent,” Maher said. “So to suggest that this employee would be considered a representative of the other employees in making this change, that’s not legal.” Schober disputed that and said the health insurance committee had existed for years prior to the unionization of public works employees. She said the city recently “reactivated” the committee. “is was his meeting,” Schober said of the union member present at the discussion. “e job of the health insurance committee members is to go out and talk to the employees within their respective departments and come back with comments, concerns, questions, thoughts about where the city should go with insurance. ... is was the meeting to talk with the department about our tier structure.” Schober said the employees were asked whether they wanted to change systems to include four insurance tiers instead of two. “at’s what this meeting was about — to ask them their opinions based on the other global impending insurance changes that were coming,” Schober said. Schober said she believes the complaint is part of the union’s negotiation strategy. In its written response to the allegations, the city claims the union “has failed and refused to bargain in good faith over the issue of insurance.” “I feel this [complaint] is all part of negotiating,” said Schober. “is is part of bargaining with Local 150.”

We’ve been working so hard for this moment. It’s great.” “I’m really proud of the 4x800 team.” Maura Beattie said. “We worked really hard since last summer because we knew we had five strong girls, and we were going for it. I was proud with how we did.” e fifth member of the team, sophomore Megan Hanson, was a member of the 4x800 team last season and was an alternate this year. Maura Beattie also placed second in the 3,200 run with a time of 10:42.22, a personal best by about six seconds and more than 13 seconds better than last year when she won the event. She won the state title in cross-country last fall. “It’s kind of weird knowing I am done with high school running,” said Beattie, who will attend Central Michigan University in the fall where she will run track and cross-country. “I really enjoyed my four years underneath all my different coaches. It was a fun experience. ey really got me ready for all that I accomplished. I was just glad I was able to listen to them and follow exactly what they wanted, and we were able to work together so we could be successful.” Her coaches had nothing but praise for her. “I think Maura was disappointed about not winning it after last year, but, in retrospect, she will realize that what she did was pretty amazing,” Erwin said. “She was so selfless to be part of that relay team and lead the others to a medal. … She ran a great race in both

She’s had a fantastic career.” Also for the Blue Streaks, Grace Beattie placed 20th out of 23 competitors in the 300 low hurdles with a time of 51.03, and junior Nora Brown placed 22nd out of 25 competitors in the 110 high hurdles with a time of 17.01.

hospital. BJ’s family lived on a farm 5 miles from Glencross and 10 miles from Timber Lake, a larger town with a population of about 600. Because there were no men available to work on the farm at the end of World War II, BJ was working with livestock and in the fields by the age of 6. She earned a penny a shock for shocking oat bundles. During harvest season, it was exciting to have a crew on the farm for several days to thresh wheat, oats and barley, and BJ enjoyed helping Ruth take mid-afternoon lunch to the men in the fields. For all but three years of elementary school, BJ was home-schooled by her mother, who had been a rural school teacher for 11 years. In the spring when she was 8, BJ was privileged to act as midwife to sows who were giving birth – for which she received a piglet of her own and out of which grew her love of pigs. The family moved into Timber Lake when BJ started high school. Each summer, she and her father would go out to the farm every Monday morning, working the farm until Saturday evening. She mowed and raked alfalfa and prairie hay but spent the majority of her time in the house, cooking and baking adeptly on a three-burner kerosene stove and completing sewing projects for the state fair. After graduating from high school in 1954, BJ attended Sioux Falls College, then went to Andover Newton Theological School, graduating with a master’s degree in divinity in 1963. While in seminary, she met David Jones. They married in 1961, were ordained as ministers in 1963, and subsequently worked for churches in Massachusetts, Ohio, Wisconsin and Illinois. They became the parents of four children. BJ had entered the ministry with the intention of engaging in social work and took a job with the Illinois Deptartment of Public Aid in 1969. She and the children moved

to Woodstock in 1970. She soon became a member of the board of the local Head Start program, on which she served for nearly 10 years. During her 15-year tenure at Public aid, the activity that meant the most to her was the establishment of a program for the benefit of abused women, which eventually became Turning Point. She helped develop training programs, worked as an advocate, crisis-line member and safe-home provider and was the first president of the board. While BJ was working at public aid, a few people learned she was an ordained minister and asked her to perform their weddings. She enjoyed being a part of the happiest day of people’s lives and left public aid to work full time officiating at weddings. This was a vocation that continued from 1984 until her death. BJ had no previous gardening experience but became an avid gardener after moving to Woodstock. Gardening became her great passion, and she eventually became a member of the University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener program, where she developed deep friendships that lasted for the rest of her life. BJ traveled extensively with her son while he was working overseas and visited more than 30 countries during that time. She also became a prolific cookie baker, churning out nearly 10,000 cookies for friends and family each annual holiday season. Survivors include her daughter, Lezley of San Jose, Calif., and son, Ward, daughterin-law, Salta, and granddaughter, Aizhana, of Maple Valley, Wash., who miss her dearly. She was preceded in death by an infant son, Wayne Evan, and a daughter, Bryn Ellen, at the age of 8 in 1973. Friends are invited to a remembrance and celebration of BJ’s life Saturday, May 31, at her home in Woodstock from 2pm until finished. For information or directions, call 815-338-6352.

Congratulations WHS, WNHS, Marian Classes of 2014 For most graduating seniors in Woodstock, the photos have been snapped, the tassels have been flipped and the diplomas have been conferred. Commencement season is upon us. At both Woodstock and Woodstock North high schools, speakers already have expressed better than we can their insights and advice for graduates. We’re sure Marian Central’s upcoming graduation will feature the same thoughtful addresses. And while we don’t envy the speakers who have to sum up four years of high school life while looking forward to the next four decades or so, we were fortunate to make up part of their audiences. Each of these speeches, different though they were, touched on one universal theme: that high school graduation, while representing the end of one challenging stage of life, signifies the beginning of another. For many, receiving a diploma is part of a journey toward earning a college degree or professional certificate. For others, it means beginning a new career or joining the armed forces. For all, graduation is surely a time when joy and relief meet at least a little apprehension and agitation. at’s to be expected. But we hope the seniors, who as a group have amassed huge numbers of honors and scholarships, take a moment to reflect on the years they spent working toward graduation day and pause to take pride in their accomplishments. Likewise, we hope the parents, siblings, teachers and friends who helped the graduates through countless essays, finals, standardized tests, science projects and last-minute homework assignments take some pride in their grads’ accomplishments, too. After all, they’ve earned it, too. But graduating students aren’t the only ones leaving Woodstock schools as the school year draws to a close. In Woodstock School District 200 buildings and at Marian Central, teachers and administrators are retiring or moving on — perhaps none more notably than District 200 Superintendent Ellyn Wrzeski. Wrzeski will be retiring after 13 years at the helm in Woodstock. We wish her the best in her retirement and we thank her for her service to Woodstock’s students and the broader community. Congratulations to the Class of 2014. As you begin this new phase in your lives, we wish you well.

Let the people decide on township efficiency An open letter to Bryan Smith, executive director for Township Officials of Illinois and to all of the state’s 12,000 township officials: e reason? To respond to Smith’s public assertion that the services provided by townships are essential to residents throughout Illinois and that townships provide these services at lower cost and higher efficiency than city governments. Bryan, “there you go again,”

spreading township propaganda and “cooking” the facts. Residents living within the city of Chicago and residents residing in 17 counties in the most rural regions of Illinois do not receive township services. Why? ey do not have township governments. Why, in the 21st century, is there even a township tax burden? ese are different times. Illinois has over 1,300 local municipal governments which have replaced the states’ 1,433 townships, making townships a duplicative and extra layer of government with an unnecessary tax burden. ere are eight municipalities within the boundaries of Algonquin township.

Illinois has 22 townships that have identical boundaries of city governments. How cost-effective and efficient are these townships? Bryan, I have an idea. Let’s have a township referendum and let the voters decide if the cost of townships is a bargain and should remain on tax bills. It would be a good thing to let the voters decide. Right? If townships are as good as you and the other 12,000 township officials promote them to be, you have nothing to worry about. Right? Let’s get together and work this referendum idea out. Referendums, voice of the people. Right. Bob Anderson, Wonder Lake

He’s off and away again One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books is “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!â€? It’s often quoted at graduations and other appropriate sending-off occasions. It starts: “Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away.â€? e person this applies to this week is John Trione, e Independent’s general manager the last six years. is is the last newspaper the staff and I will produce under John’s leadership. is isn’t his ďŹ rst off-and-away from e Independent. His history with the newspaper goes back much farther than six years. John had just graduated from Eastern Illinois University when he was hired as e Independent’s ďŹ rst advertising sales rep in 1987. He sold advertising for this newspaper when it didn’t have a track record, and he helped set the standard of high-quality, creative advertisements. After about three years, John was ready for new challenges and

opportunities. His next career would be selling pharmaceuticals. However, when he left e Independent, he said he would be back. True to his word, Cheryl he did indeed return — this time as general Wormley manager. John’s Declarations style of management is entrepreneurial – identifying opportunities and building on them. He built upon the strengths of e Independent, strengthening the brand by changing the name of the company’s total-market publication from e Plus to e Torch – a torch has been part of e Independent’s logo since day one. e Independent’s Facebook numbers increased exponentially under John’s leadership, because of the quality of the postings. As of ursday our Facebook page had 3,908 likes. A great send-off

for John would be to hit 4,000 by his last day, May 30. John saw the potential for a new publication in Harvard and started e Main Line – remembering Harvard’s coming into being to serve the steam engines making their way northwest out of Chicago. e Main Line is a success and is to Harvard what e Independent is to Woodstock. John saw the beneďŹ ts to the staff and the quality of the company’s publications if equipment was upgraded. Over the last six years, he replaced worn out computers and the more-than-a-quarter-century-old phone system. If you asked him to list his accomplishments, I believe one of the ďŹ rst things he would say is the team – staff — he has hired. More than ever before, the staff is made up of talented, self-starting individuals who are poised to lead the company forward. If you asked him if he has any regrets, I believe John would say he is disappointed Small Business Saturday

hasn’t caught hold among Woodstock merchants despite his efforts. For him, it made perfect sense to take advantage of the national promotion which was conceived in 2010 by American Express. So what’s next for John? He’s off to give his all to his hot air balloon business – Lake Geneva Balloon Company. If you see a green and yellow balloon — John Deere colors, not Packers, according to John — ying in southern Wisconsin or at one of the several balloon races around the country, wave, because its pilot is probably John. e staff and I are hosting a sendoff party for John from 4 to 6 p.m. ursday, May 29, at e Independent ofďŹ ce, 671 E. Calhoun St. Join us as we thank him for fueling e Independent’s torch the last six years and as we send him off again. By the way, he hasn’t said he’ll be back. But he has said he will keep up with what we’re doing.

Lockwood In real life, though, snoring A Musing is embarrassing, extremely annoying to loved ones and potentially lifethreatening. And yet, many of us either don’t know that we have a problem, don’t think it’s as loud as it really is or don’t want to see a doctor because we think this is something we can live with and that our spouses or signiďŹ cant others (and upstairs neighbors) should just learn to live with it, too.

What I suffer from is moderate (a.k.a. “it could be worseâ€?) obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when muscles in the back of my throat are unable to keep the airway open. To help me keep the airway open, I use a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, or CPAP, machine every night that I’m at home. Years ago, the only kind of CPAP machines available had masks that made you look like Hannibal Lecter or a catcher for a major league team. Now CPAP equipment has advanced signiďŹ cantly to be far less intrusive, even for those who tend to be claustrophobic. How did I know what equipment would work for me, and how I should use it? I stayed overnight at the hospital. Centegra Hospital–Woodstock is one of the nearby facilities where you can have a sleep study conducted if your doctor or specialist recommends one. If you’ve never done one, you don’t know the astonishment you’ll feel after being connected to a ton of wires (for monitoring your breathing and all your movements) before crawling into bed and yet sleeping soundly through the night! ey ďŹ nd the equipment that works best for you and the CPAP setting that’s appropriate (sounds like one of those Sleep Number beds, doesn’t it?).

Nowadays, if I’m sleepy during the workday, it’s because I didn’t hit the sack soon enough – staying up to write a newspaper column, for example – not because of my apnea.

HIGHLIGHT

Woodstock student wins college newspaper award By JANET DOVIDIO The Independent McHenry County College’s student newspaper, e Tartan, earned five awards at the Illinois Community College Journalism Association’s spring conference at Moraine Valley Community College in April. One of the awards went to Daniel Bauman, Woodstock. He is the newspaper’s layout editor. Bauman and editorin-chief Nancy Graves, Crystal Lake, together earned third place in the contest’s front page design category. “Daniel’s value to e Tartan is really immeasurable,” Graves said. “Without his expertise and creativity with our layout software, there would not be a Tartan.” “I have just been going along with the general design goals we use for the front page,” Bauman said. “I am aware of what will be above the fold and try to balance the images and text.” English and journalism instructor Toni Countryman serves as e Tartan’s advisor.

Education

District bids Wrzeski farewell By ELIZABETH HARMON The Independent As superintendent, Ellyn Wrzeski helped create Woodstock School District 200’s roadmap for the future. Soon, she’ll be looking at maps of her own. After 13 years with District 200, Wrzeski will retire at the end of June. “I’m looking forward to traveling with my husband and especially getting to spend more time with our children and grandchildren in California,” she said. About 400 District 200 teachers, staff and members of the community attended an open house for Wrzeski at the Ellyn Bull Valley Country Wrzeski Club May 21. Band and choral students from Woodstock and Woodstock North high schools provided musical entertainment, and school board members presented Wrzeski and her husband with gifts including a wooden tray handcrafted by Board President Paul Meyer. “We were very happy three years ago when Ellyn changed her mind about retiring and decided to continue,” Meyer said, referencing Wrzeski’s decision to postpone her retirement. “She’s made a

big difference in those three years.” Among Wrzeski’s accomplishments during her years as superintendent include establishing all-day kindergarten, opening Clay Academy and launching the dual-language and orchestra programs. She also was instrumental in garnering support for the construction of WNHS. “We’ve been so very fortunate that Ellyn decide to join us 13 years ago,” Woodstock Mayor Brian Sager said. “She’s shown strong commitment to the growth and develop of our greatest resource — our youth — and understands the importance of collaboration within a community. We will miss her.” “Because she’s a visionary, she’s taken us in places we didn’t imagine we could go, and as a leader has moved things forward,” said former school board member Marcy Piekos. In addition to guiding the district through the construction of WNHS, she also oversaw construction of Creekside Middle School and Prairiewood Elementary, as well as major renovations of the district’s other facilities. “I have to believe we’ve had one of the best superintendents in the state,” said former board member Ray Caywood, who served on the board during the construction projects. Several teachers spoke to Wrzeski’s commitment to students. “She’s always been a big champion of early childhood education, and that’s

“Because she’s a visionary, she’s taken us in places we didn’t imagine we could go, and as a leader has moved things forward.” — Marcy Piekos, former school board member been so appreciated,” said kindergarten teacher Phyllis Lesniak. “With all the expectations for kids, [all-day kindergarten] provides so much more time for them to develop,” said kindergarten teacher Lauren Boyle. Others said they appreciated Wrzeski’s personable approach. “She knows everyone by name,” said elementary music teacher Carolyn Sharpe. Dorr Township Supervisor Bob Pierce agreed. “She brought openness to the district, and if there’s a problem, she always listens. We’re going to miss her.” Board member Robert Birchfield traveled to Wrzeski’s previous district in Perry, Iowa, when she was being considered for the position in Woodstock. “I like to think I hired her,” Birchfield said. “I went to Perry for the final interview and kind of endorsed her. It’s one of the brighter things I’ve done in my life. She really turned the district around, brought us from a middleof- the-road district to an outstanding one.”

‘HAPPY’ RETIREMENT

Woodstock School District 200 students take part in a flashmob on the Woodstock Square May 21, dancing to Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” as part of a sendoff for Superintendent Ellen Wrzeski, who will retire in June.

‘Dreams’ come true for WHS senior

Alex Riak awarded for original musical composition By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent

As he lifted his arms to cue the choir at its final concert of the year, Woodstock High School senior Alex Riak smiled at his classmates. Full of pride and a hint of nerves, he began conducting his peers, leading them in a song he had written and composed. “Whisper,” one of several of Riak’s choral compositions, was first conducted and performed at the May 6 concert – the last for the 2014 graduate. At the conclusion of his song, Riak received a standing ovation from the audience, a moment he said he will always remember. “It was such a great feeling – the standing ovation,” Riak said. “But it kind of feels strange, like, ‘Oh, this is my piece.’ It’s really different from when we’re learning a song [choral director Paul] Rausch had picked out for us. … I had to call a lot of the shots for what was supposed to be going on in the song, so I wasn’t really used to that. I’m used to learning the song. I’m not used to telling people what to do. But it was a good feeling.” Riak has arranged a few pieces of music for the WHS men’s a capella group, Standing Room Only, but began composing his own during his junior year. e piece that won him first place in a statewide vo-

cal ensemble competition was “Dreams,” a song he had composed, recorded and submitted for the Illinois Music Education Association’s 2014 composition contest. With the help of friends, Riak recorded the song to submit to the contest. Riak, his brother, Alden Riak; mother, Elizabeth Novak; and friends Sarah Schadt, Rebecca Floyd and WHS senior Sam Peiffer provided the vocals. Sherri Dees accompanied on piano. As the winner of the competition, Riak had the opportunity to attend the IMEA all-state conference in January with classmates Sarah Baier, attending the Future Music Educators seminar; Erica Finke and Evan Berg, participating in the All-State Choir; and Natalie Zoia, participating in the All-State Honors Orchestra. Prior to attending, however, Riak took some conducting lessons from Rausch, because Riak had been asked to direct at the conference. “I knew what it was supposed to look like, but I wasn’t very good at it,” Riak said. “Mr. Rausch sat with me the two weeks before I went down to All-State and taught me to conduct well, make sure the choir knew what I was doing and how to tell choirs what I wanted them to do. ... While I was conducting and performing, I actually learned that I like conducting a lot because I don’t get nervous since I’m not looking at the audience.” e WHS Madrigals performed “Dreams” at the all-state concert, conducted by Riak and accompanied by Rausch.

“It’s really special, I think, when the kids who are composing also have an opportunity to direct,” Rausch said. “Conducting, from the audience’s point of view, looks relatively easy – I mean, seriously. What are you doing just waving your hands? But there is so much more behind conducting. e way you hold your hand and the way you gesture can actually alter the way a choir sings. It’s pretty amazing. He was working on that, and he did very well.” Rausch said WHS has not had many

students compete in the statewide composition contest, but said they are slowly gaining interest. Last year, senior John Morefield competed in the large instrumental ensemble and placed third, and Riak kept the trend going with his participation. Riak will attend Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington, in the fall. He said he plans to major in either music composition or music education and hopes to go after his own dream of making a name for himself in choral music composition.

All things must end, success starts with new beginnings is week’s Independent marks my final issue as General Manager. After six years, I’ve decided to leave the publishing industry altogether and focus my attention on my hot air balloon ride business in Lake Geneva and other business opportunities. Leaving the Independent is not a decision I made lightly. As many of you know, this is my second tour of duty at the newspaper. I was also involved in the John start-up phase and Trione worked for three years with the Minding Your founders in estabBusiness lishing e Woodstock Independent and what became e Torch. When I left the first time, I told publisher Cheryl Wormley I would be back someday to run the paper. I’m not sure if that was prescient or just the braggadocio of a young 26-year-old getting ready to try his hand at the world of big corporations and broader horizons, but it turned out to be correct. And it’s been a more satisfying and rewarding experience than I ever imagined. When you run a community weekly newspaper like the Independent, you are really running an institution unlike most other businesses. Our business serves as the heart and soul of Woodstock – its conscience and its voice and also, its memory. Like it or not, your identity and the paper’s merge a bit. It’s a responsibility I’ve never taken lightly. Even in a small city like Woodstock, the management, editors, writers and photographers at the local paper enjoy a bit of the spotlight because of their positions. I’ll miss people coming up to me, sending me emails or phoning me to tell me of concerns they have for their city. It’s always been heartening to know people in Woodstock care as much as they do. Woodstock is unique. e Independent has always strived to match the uniqueness of the community we call home. Our metric has always been excellence. e past three years we’ve been awarded the top award in the state for a newspaper our size, and we’re likely to win again next month. Running a company with such high goals and expectations has been difficult at times, but ultimately it has been a great learning experience that I will carry forward with me to future endeavors. Finally, I’d like to thank Independent owners Cheryl and Paul Wormley for their trust and support in my six years as general manager. It’s been a privilege to serve in this leadership role, and I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity. I’d also like to thank the many people who’ve worked with me here at the paper over the years; I’ve been blessed by talented teammates who care about Woodstock and are passionate about practicing excellent journalism. It’s been an honor to work with all of you. John Trione is the general manager of The Woodstock Independent.

Katherine’s Beads heads back to Harvard Woodstock store closes after about a year on Calhoun St. By LISA KUCHARSKI The Independent After about a year in business at its 116 E. Calhoun St. location, silversmith and jewelry designer Katherine Sheetz closed her Woodstock store, Katherine’s Beads, May 23. With the store just off the Woodstock Square, Sheetz said she wasn’t seeing the foot traffic she had hoped for, traffic her bead and jewelry-making shop had managed to draw when it was on the Square from 2004 to 2009. So Sheetz has opted to make a move back to Harvard’s Starline Gallery, 400 W. Front St., where her business located in 2012.

“I’m looking forward to change,” Sheetz said. “I’m going to focus in more on my website. What I want to do is design a line of pendants and charms and toggles. … at’s my goal. I can still design, but I’m not under the gun to spit out jewelry.” Among Sheetz’s Woodstock customers is Mary Wright, who said she started coming to Katherine’s Beads years ago, at its former location on the Square, after her husband bought her some beads to make jewelry. Wright began taking bracelet- and earringmaking classes from Sheetz and said she’s been hooked on the hobby ever since. “I’m sad that she’s leaving the area,” Wright said. “I just wish more people would come.” Despite a boom in sales during Christmas, Sheetz said visits and pur-

chases declined afterward. ough her jewelry-making and precious metal clay classes were fairly well-attended, she said they were not quite full enough to sustain the business. Sheetz said most of her customers were from the Crystal Lake area, bringing new customers into Woodstock, but there wasn’t enough inventory turnover. “I think it’s the climate,” said Sheetz “People are shopping online a lot more.” Sheetz said she plans to open her Starline studio in early June. As a certified precious metal clay instructor, she will continue hosting jewelry-making classes at her new studio.

Planting for the future By SANDY KUCHARSKI The Independent

anks to a gift from an anonymous donor, an oasis from the summer sun is taking root at Merryman Fields. Each season, hundreds of park users take to the fields and line the sidelines at the popular baseball venue. e 82acre park, located at 1800 Raffel Road, boasts seven baseball fields. Users are pleased with the well-maintained fields’ adequate parking, but according to Director of Public Works Paul Ruscko, the biggest complaint with the park is the lack of shade. is is no surprise for the relatively new facility that was a farm field less than 10 years ago. Last fall, a donor who prefers to remain anonymous approached the city with an offer to provide and plant several large trees on the site. Jumping at the opportunity, the public works department marked buried utilities and then green-lighted the project. “We didn’t even have to plant them,” said Ruscko. “ere’s no way we’d even consider saying no to someone like this.” As the leaves unfold this spring, the impact of the donation is becoming evident. ere are 10 substantial trees

– five hickories, three bur oaks and two white oaks – each about 30 feet tall with 5- to 6-inch diameter trunks – scattered throughout the park. While slow growing, the hardwoods are environmentally significant as native species to the area and they have a long lifespan. “e sheer cost of buying and plant-

ing trees like this is something we would not have been able to do for a long time,” said Ruscko. He estimated that the rough cost of buying trees of this size and having them hauled and planted would be about $2,000 per tree. Former Woodstock mayor Alan Cornue was responsible for transplanting the trees from his farm near Alden and planting them at the park last fall. He brought in a 90-inch tree spade and worked with Parks Supervisor Bob Hoadley to choose the best locations for planting. “With careful watering and a lot of TLC for a couple of years, they should do well,” said Cornue. Many of the city parks benefit from a variety of donations and service projects conducted by schools, youth groups, scouts and individuals. “We’re as supportive as we can be when someone offers to make a donation like this,” said Ruscko.

Freshman Karlie Blaze slipped past several Blue Streak defenders and scored the only goal of the game. “I felt like we had an advantage with our athleticism in certain spots,” Smith said. “I felt like Blaz could get through if we defend and we were patient. “You can just see her athleticism. She’s the fastest kid on the field.” “You have to credit Blaz,” Golda said. “She worked hard to get that goal.” Blaz said she wasn’t sure the ball went in the goal. “It’s exciting,” said Blaz who had been on the junior varsity team until the regional tournament. “I fell to the ground and looked up and everyone was running at me.

Ride of Silence honors cyclists killed in accidents By KATELYN STANEK The Independent On a warm May evening filled with shouts and car radios, they rode their bikes in silence. ey did it for friends, for family, for people they’d never met. ey did it to remember. It was the third Ride of Silence held in McHenry County, and for the first time, dozens of cyclists came to Woodstock May 21, taking part in a worldwide tribute to cyclists killed or injured in road accidents. James Gould was among the group that rode from the McHenry County Government Center to the Woodstock Square. “I think the Ride of Silence is really

important,” Gould said. “My brother-inlaw was killed six years ago. He was an avid biker who just rode all the time. A driver not paying attention killed him.” e group, which was organized by the McHenry County Bicycle Advocates, rode with signs and shirts signaling their support of safer streets. “We’re helping people to see the value of bicycling in McHenry County. We’re working with different government bodies to get whatever support is needed to promote bicycling,” said Todd Nelson, a cycling safety instructor who also serves as the MCBA’s vicepresident. “Any lane narrower than 14 feet is too narrow to share with a vehicle, so most of the time, you want to encourage motorists to make a full lane change to pass,” he said. “at’s a difficult concept for people in this car-centric world that we live in.” To that end, Nelson and his group advocate for safety improvements, including clearly marked bicycle paths and lanes. ey also call on motorists and cyclists alike to do their part. “It’s really important that we honor them, that we make the roads safer and share the roads,” Gould said.

Former Streaks hoops coach to head up Green Giants Hammond will return to alma mater Alden-Hebron By JAY SCHULZ The Independent Woodstock resident and former Woodstock High School girls basketball head coach Marty Hammond has been named the head girls basketball

State

coach of the Blue Streaks after 13 years, six as head coach, this past season after the Streaks finished 11-19 and won the IHSA Class 3A regional title. Hammond replaces Jen NicholsHogle at Alden-Hebron, where she was head coach for two years. She replaces him at WHS. “I’m excited to have him back,” said Alden-Hebron athletic director Jon Lalor, adding Hammond had been an

It’s all going to be up to the girls, how much they put into their effort, what their attitudes are going to be and if they are going to take responsibility for their actions.”

he did not post a height. “I just didn’t want to make the same mistake again, and I almost did,” Krenger said. “I started at 12 feet at sectionals and scratched my first two jumps. It was nerve racking. As soon as I cleared 12 on my third try, I was clean all the way up to 14. It was a mental wall I had to get past, and, as soon as I got past it, I was fine.” Krenger attended the IHSA state meet his freshman year to watch his teammate Jon Walsh compete in the pole

vault. Walsh won, becoming the first state champion in school history. “Being down there watching him win state made it seem almost like another meet,” Krenger said. “It’s a big meet, but it is not as nerve-racking now just because I’ve seen it before. … I’m just going to treat it as another meet.” Krenger said he has had his eye on the state meet. “My goal from the beginning of the year was to get to state this year and win it next year,” Krenger said. “So far the

plan is heading in the right direction.” WNHS senior Sergio Rodriquez finished third in the 800 run with a time of 2:01.28, about two seconds short of qualifying for state. e best finish for Marian Central Catholic High School was its 4x200 relay team, which finished fourth, 1:36.25, more than four seconds short of the state qualifying time. e IHSA Class 2A state meet will be ursday to Saturday, May 29 and 31, at Eastern Illinois University, Charleston.

round match easily 6-0, 6-0 on the first day of the tournament. e key match came at the beginning of the second day against Nick ome from Crystal Lake South – a win and he would qualify for state. He lost the first set 2-6. “Coach Larsen told me to shake it off. I really took it to heart,” Shin said. “I had a completely Charles different attitude Shin in the second set. I started hitting shots harder and placing them where it was harder for him to return.” Shin won the second and third sets 7-5, 7-5. e match took about 2 1/2 hours to complete.

“I played aggressive,” Shin said. “Coach Larsen told me to look for my opportunities, go to the net as much as I could, keep him on his toes, and that’s what I did. I think I played with a little bit of luck today, but I also played pretty well. … It’s awesome.” Shin lost his last two matches, 4-6, 0-6 and 0-6, 0-1. Marian Central head coach Ginny Larsen said Shin and she were both surprised he advanced. Neither had brought food with them the second day. “I am so proud of Charles,” Larsen said. “He worked so hard on his mental game, and he just hung in there, never quit on this. It was amazing to watch.” e IHSA state tennis tournament will be ursday to Saturday, May 29 to 31, at Hersey High School, Arlington Heights.

» CLASS 2A BOYS TRACK SECTIONAL

Woodstock sending two to state By JAY SCHULZ The Independent Woodstock’s high schools will be represented at the IHSA Class 2A boys state track and field meet. At the IHSA Class 2A boys sectional track and field meet May 23 at Grayslake Central, Woodstock High School sophomore Luke Beattie placed fifth in the 3,200-meter run with a time of 9 minutes, 45.66 seconds. Woodstock North High School junior Jimmy Krenger placed second in the pole vault, clearing 13 feet, 6 inches. Both met qualifying requirements for the state meet. Beattie, who missed the first three weeks of the season with an Achilles injury, said he feels about 100 percent. “I felt really good on Friday,” Beattie said. “Given the season he had where he was injured for a good portion of it, to come off training on an elliptical and run for basically three weeks and qualify for state is pretty awesome,” said WHS head boys track and field coach Matt McCulley. “He got back just at the right time.” Beattie, who saw his sisters, Maura and Grace, compete at the girls state track and field meet May 24, said he doesn’t have any goals for the meet – he just wants to see how he stacks up against the competition. “I’m just excited to go experience it and try to see how I can compete,” Beattie said.

» CLASS 2A GIRLS SOCCER REGIONAL , Ê£ÊUÊ7-Êä

Marian pulls upset By JAY SCHULZ The Independent e Marian Central Catholic High School girls soccer team, with four wins on the season, came into the IHSA Class 2A regional final as the clear underdog against a Woodstock High School who had 15 wins and had just won the Fox Valley Conference Fox Division for the first time in school history. Marian Central head coach Karl Smith said he knew his team was better than it looked on paper, and he was right, as the Lady ‘Canes defeated the Blue Streaks 1-0 to claim the regional championship. “We played a very difficult schedule,” Smith said. “We’ve been a team that’s always been able to defend. Once we brought up a couple of freshmen, Karlie Blaz and Erika Decanay, they gave us some athleticism going forward.” Smith scouted the Blue Streaks,

“We’ve been in this situation. We’ve been in games where it’s close. We’ve been against the wall. These kids don’t get nervous in that situation.” — Karl Smith, Marian coach a veteran team with seven senior starters, and said he felt the best way to combat his opponent was try to shorten the game. “I told [the team] at the beginning of the game, let’s go into halftime 0-0, and, if we do, I feel like the advantage is ours,” Smith said. e Lady ‘Canes relied on its defensive strength, often leaving nine

Lady ’Canes end Streaks’ quest for first girls soccer regional title players in the defensive zone, to stifle the Streaks. “I thought Karl had a good strategy of dropping nine back [on defense] and leaving one on top,” WHS head coach Mike Golda said. “ey cut off a lot of our diagonal passes. We just weren’t as crisp on our passing game as we have been, and you have to credit Marian’s defense.” Golda said he felt the turning point in the game came with about 13 minutes left. WHS senior Leiana Haanio had a free kick that was blocked by Marian sophomore goalie Kersten Green. e ball went in front of the goal, and Blue Streak senior Emma ill almost gave the Streaks the lead banging the ball hard off the goal post. A Blue Streak goal would have forced the Lady ‘Canes to move off its defensive strategy and be more aggressive, whereas the Streaks could

Marian Central Catholic High School senior Charles Shin had one goal since he started playing tennis for the Hurricanes

as a freshman – make it to the IHSA state tournament. He achieved that goal by placing fourth in the IHSA Cary-Grove sectional tournament May 23 and 24, marking the fifth consecutive year the Hurricanes

have qualified at least one tennis player for the state tournament. Shin found out early last week he was seeded sixth in the sectional tournament. He said he knew his chances of making the state

tournament improved dramatically as he would not be playing the top seeds in the first few rounds. “I was really appreciative to get the sixth seed,” Shin said. “at’s when I knew I had a shot at this.” Shin had a bye in the first round and won his second Please see Shin, Page 23
