Miss Illinois 2003 visits schools 
spreading anti-violence message 




Andrea Fritz of Schaumbiirg, Miss Illinois 2003, talks with stu- 
dents at Pleviak School in Lake Villa about the effects of bully- 
ing and rhaking good choices in their lives.— Photo by Sandy

By BRENDA BAUN-BEITSCHER 
bbeitscher@lakelandmedta.com 

t was "Crazy Hair Day" at 
Pleviak Elementary School in 
Lake Villa. It was a day of self- 
expression, with hair arranged 
in ponytails, pigtails, mohawks and 
wild tufts, and colored every shade 
of the rainbow. 

It was a perfect day for a conven- 
tional beauty to go to the schoolto 
speak about taking pride in being 
oneself and taking the time to try to ' 
understand the importance of others. 
Andrea Fritz, Miss Illinois 2003, 
fit the bill perfectly. 

Fritz, a 21-year-old junior on 
the dean's list at Eastern Illinois 
University, has the all-American 
"girl-next-door" good looks one 
might expect in a Miss America 
pageant contestant.However, she is 
not resting on her crown. ; 

Fritz has been on a statewide 
tour since Red Ribbon Week in 
October, when she launched a 
series of visits to schools. 

The message she is sharing with 
children and teens is an outgrowth 
of her platform: "Preventing Youth 
Violence: Book's Not Bars." 

Fritz has been working as a 
mentor at Robinson Correctional 



Facility, but the focus of her plat- 
form is on preventing, rather than 
curing youth violence. 

"With little kids, I bring it down 
to a matter of respecting each 
other," she said, minutes before sev- 
eral classes of small children came 
pouring through the gymnasium 
doors. '; 

While addressing teens, Fritz - 
talks about making good choices 
with respect to drugs, alcohol and 
gangs. When addressing very young 
children, the medium becomes the 
message, as she uses every trick in 
the book to make points about 
pride, tolerance and understanding. 

"Is there something you like to 
do or wear that people think is 
weird," she asked the students, after 
noting their varied colored coifs. 

"Do they make you feel like 
this?" she asked, as she donned a 
pair of glasses with eyeballs on 
springs. 

Wearing the "google eyes," she 
told a story about herself, a young 
girl whose mother put jingle bells 
on her shoes. 

"I thought it was fun, but other 
kids thought it was stupid," she 
said. "They teased me, and I got in 
trouble for yelling at them." 

When young Andrea asked her 



mother to take the bells off her 
shoes, her mother replied, "Andrea, 
it doesn't matter. You wore what you 
liked." 

Examining the flipside of the 
coin, Fritz read a picture book to the 
children about a boy named Sam 
who became a bully when he 
thought no one liked him. 

Fritz engaged the students in 
finding a solution to bullying, 
including suggestions such as "try 
to make friends," "be kind" and 
"give compliments." 

After giving the youngsters a mis- 
sion ("Give someone a compliment 
today"), Fritz answered questions. 

While there was no bullying, no 
punches were pulled either. 

"Do you do beauty pageants or 
scholarship pageants?" one of.the 
students asked. 

Fritz explained that the Miss 
Illinois/Miss America pageants are, 
indeed, scholarship pageants, 

In fact, Fritz, who plans to be 
teacher, was selected for member 
ship in honor.societies Phi Eta 
Sigma, Kappa Delta Pi and Phi 
Alpha Eta. She was awarded the 
Betty Hawkins writing and leader-

Home no safe haven for burglar 





By JULIE MURPHY; 
Jmurphy@lakelandmedla.com 

Home proved to be no safe- 
haven for Daniel K. McGinn, 42, of 
284 Anita Terrace, when he was 
arrested at his residence Dec. 9 at 3 
a.m. Lake County Sheriff's officers 
caught him in the act of burglarizing 
TNT's Tavern, a little over an hour 
after. 

McGinn, already under investi- 
gation . by the Antioch Police 
Department for a Nov. 25 burglary at 
Mars Cleaners on Main Street, was 
reportedly, able to elude the Lake 
County officers long enough to make 
it back home before he was appre- 
hended. 

Sgt. Christopher Thompson of 
the Lake County Sheriff's Office said 



that deputies were called to TNT's by knowing that the , department was 

someone who lived in an apartment conducting an investigation on 

off the restaurant who reported hav- McGinn for the Mars Cleaners inci- 

ing seen somebody walking around dent about two weeks prior. 



and going through the 
coolers. When the 
deputies asked to be let 
in, the offender told them 
that he was an employee 
and did not have his keys 
to open the backdoor. He 
then reportedly fled out 
the front entrance. 

Investigation by the 
deputies led them to 
McGinn's home address, 
where he was caught. 




McGinn 



"We were already 
looking into McGinn, as 
he was a very recent for- 
mer employee of Mars 
and has an extensive 
arrest record," Somerville 
said. "I went to the apart- 
ment and conducted an 
interview with (McGinn's)

consent to search, I

Thug snatches pug 



By JUUE MURPHY 
jmurphy@lakelandmedla.com 

This time the Antioch Police 
Department is looking not for cat bur- 
glars, but dog-nappers. Over the 
course of two days, Dec, 5-6, two pup- 
pies were taken from Best Pets pet store 
on Orchard Street, in Antioch. 

Both puppies are about 12 weeks 
old. One is a miniature pincher and the 
other is a pug, both are still small. 

Detective Sgt. Craig Somerville 
said, "We really want to find these pup- 
pies. I have pictures of the breeds of 
dogs, but not the actual puppies. 
Someone has to know where these 
dogs are." 

Somerville said that Best Pets is 
offering a cash reward for information 
leading to the recovery of the puppies, 



but 



that 




anonymous 
information 
to the police 
department 
about this or 
any crime is 
welcome. 

"Anyone 
with informa- 
tion is wel- 
come to call 
me and we can keep the information 
confidential," he said. "We're looking 
for any information involving the 
whereabouts of the puppies, or knowl- 
edge of someone who recently came 
into possession of the puppies." 

The non-emergency number of 
the Antioch Police Department is 847- 
395-8585.

Accident serves as a reminder 
to have safety seats checked 



By JUUE MURPHY 
jmurphy@lakelandmedia.com 

The four children of Lynette 
Zienty, and Zienty herself, were spared 
their lives in a Dec. 12 head-on acci- 
dent that proved fatal for the driver of 
the other vehicle. 

The .accident happened at 10:04 
p.m. on North Avenue near the inter- 
section of Deep Lake Road in Antioch 
Township. 

Zienty, an Antioch resident and 
the 38-year-old mother of four, told 
officers of the Lake County Sheriff's 
Department that she had been travel-; 
ing westbound on North Avenue when 
a vehicle approaching her swerved 
into her lane and hit her head-on. She 
said she had tried to get out of the way 
of the vehicle, buthadbeen unable to 1 
do so. 

Jeffrey A. Brock, 42, of Gumee, was 
pronounced dead at the scene and 
was taken to the Lake. County 
Coroners Facility. 

Coroner Jim Wipper said, "It is 
tragic that a candle was extinguished 
this past weekend as a result of this col- . 
lision, However, I am grateful more 
candles were not I can't emphasize 



enough to all parents to ensure the 
proper use of seatbelts and carseats for 
their children whenever they, travel." 

Wipper said he had been contact- 
ed by one of his investigators who 
reported the cliildren, aged 5 months 
•to 10 years, were happy and active as 
they waited for Zienty to have an X-ray 
for a minor leg injury. 

"This is a true testament of the 
importance of seatbelts and car seats 
for our young passengers," Wipper 
said. 

The initial investigation and traffic 
report of the Lake County Sheriff's 
Office indicated that Brock's vehicle 
had been traveling. eastbound in the 
westbound lane of traffic and that the. 
point of collision was in the west- 
boundlahe of traffic. 

No further details were given.; ; 

Wipper invites anyone interested 

in having a free car seat inspection to 

. call his office, 847-377-2200, and make 

an appointment with* a certified staff 

member. 

Antioch residents can also call the 
Antioch Fire Department; 847-395- 
5511, for more information and to set 
an appointment for a free child safety > 
seat check. 



SMC study supported 



By JUUE MURPHY 
jmurphy@lakelandmedia.com 

i" """ """": " "" "" """"" 

On behalf of the Antioch, 
Chamber of Commerce and Industry, 
President Karen Dunham pledged; 
$5,000 of support to the village of 
Antioch. The village is moving forward 
with an independent study of the Lake 
County Stormwater Management 
Commission's (SMC) study of the 
Sequoit Creek Watershed and pro- 
posed changes to the floodplain. 

The money will be used to help 
the village offset the costs of hiring 
independent engineers to ensure 
the methodologies and results of the 
SMC study are fair and accurate. 

Mayor Taso Maravelas thanked 
Dunham and said, "The chamber 
came to the village's rescue." He 
noted that the chamber represents 
over 300 members and most of the 
businesses in the area. 

' Trustee Scott Pierce added the 
mayor's reception of chamber's sup- 
port. He said, "The more united we 
are, the better the results will be." 

At its last regular meeting, the 
board of directors voted unani- 



mously to approve a $9,800 expendi- 
ture to Christopher B. Burke 
Engineering to thoroughly examine 
the SMC reports and recommenda- 
tions for changes that, if approved, 
will add a good portion of Antioch's 
industrial area to the Sequoit Creek 
floodplain. 

Pierce noted then that if village 
needs Burke to supply solutions to 
reduce the floodplain area, the 
board would have to negotiate a 
separate arrangement with the firm. 
"This is just to study the study," he 
said. "If other work is needed, more 
negotiations would have to be 
made." 

Thomas Burke, who heads the 
Water Resources Section of the engi- 
neering firm, told the village board 
that his company has done similar 
work for the municipalities of 
Addison, Bellwood and Northlake. 
He said his firm had successfully 
provided solutions to reduce flood- 
plain areas that are in the process of 
being accepted by the state. 

She said it was important for the 
chamber to protect the interests of 
its members.

Westosha Lakes Chorus 
moves to Antioch 



By JUUE MURPHY 
jmurphy@lakelandmeciia.com 

Familiar with tag lines and four- 
part harmonies? Women who can 
sing for joy as the Westosha Lakes 
Chorus, a chapter of the . Sweet 
Adelines Internationa], has moved 
to Antioch. 

The barbershop-quartet style 
singers are led by Polly Merrill, who 
has directed the band since its 
inception two years ago. She brings 
years of experience to the 
rehearsals and continues to hone 
her skills traveling throughout the 
United States and abroad to 
enhance her abilities as a per- 
former and director. 

About 30 women make up the 
chorus with ages ranging from 
teenage on up. 

"We have mothers and daugh- 
ters who sing together," Merrill 
said. "We aren't a bunch of soloists. 
We like to say that we sing for the 
health of it." 



Previously, the chorus met in 
Paddock Lake, but it now holds 
rehearsals, at the Antioch VFW 
Sequoit Post 4551 on Thursday 
nights at 7 p.m. 

The group welcomes new members 
with a literal hoot and holler after 
Merrill listens to renditions of 
"Happy Birthday" or scales and 
determines whether one is better 
suited to sing the part of tenor, bari- 
tone, lead or bass. 

While the group performs a 
variety of songs, all a cappella, from 
straight barbershop to contempo- 
rary and seasonal songs as well as 
country/western, all of the music 
has the common thread of being 
sung in four-part harmony. During 
community singing engagements, 
the chorus often breaks into small- 
er quartets or mother/daughter 
combinations. 

Merrill said it's not as confusing 
as it may seem, ?nd that each sec- 
tion has a leader and tapes of per- . 
formance pieces are made for 



home study that accentuate the 
four individual parts. Sections prac- 
tice individually and as a whole 
with the other three counterparts. 

'Westosha Lakes Chorus started 
with five members and continues 
to grow. The chorus competes with 
other Sweet Adelines in Osh Kosh, 
Wis. once a year, and some mem- 
bers choose to attend the yearly 
international convention. 

Crystal Olsen, public relations 
director said, "If you enjoy singing 
or would like ongoing vocal train- 
ing in a fun and friendly atmos- 
phere, come join in the music and 
fun." 

Though the group typically 
meets on a weekly basis, the holi- 
days have pushed the next open 
rehearsal to Jan. 15. The VFW halt is 
located on North Avenue east of 
Route 83. 

For more information, call 
Olson at 262-862-6603. ' For an 
Illinois exchange, call Dede 
Umland at 847-356-8356.

UNSAFE HAVEN 



postage meter that was also taken from the 
cleaners as well as some items believed to have 
been involved in the TNT incident" 

Somerville said the Antioch Police 
Department's investigation had not targeted. 
McGinn but had included all former employees 
of Mars Cleaners as well as all known burglars, 
in the area. He said the linchpin in the case was 
recovering the postage meter. 

McGinn reportedly implicated himself in 
the Mars Cleaners burglary after Somerville 
recovered some of the stolen items and he was 
interviewed at the Lake County Jail. 

"Recovering these items, particularly the 
postage meter, was really key in settling this," 
Somerville said. He added that some of the 
computer components were /'unrecoverable" 



as they had been sold. .-'..>•' 

"Not everyone has a postage meter) and it 
could have been traced if it had ever been used 
after being stolen," he said. "This connected 
him to that crime." 

In both instances, forcible entry had been 
used during overnight hours. 

Both the Antioch Police Department and the 
Lake County Sheriff's Office have charged 
McGinn with one count each for burglary, a 
class 2 felony. The Lake County Sheriff's Office 
also charged McGinn with one count of posses- 
sion of burglary. tools, a class 4 felony. 

Antioch Police Department Chief Chuck 
Fagan said, "Cooperation of departments 
works to the advantage of everyone, and this is 
a perfect example of it."

Candle safety stressed for the holidays 



Homes often look best during the' holi- 
day season because of extensive decorating 
in the spirit of being festive, but some of the 
prettiest decorations can prove to be the 
most dangerous. 

Because of a fire caused by an unattend- 
ed candle last year, Antioch Fire Chief 
Dennis Volling released the following statis- 
tics and candle safety tips: 

"There is a need for everyone to under- 
stand that a candle's grace and beauty comes 
from an open flame," said Volling. "This 
open flame, when left unattended can cause 
serious harm and accounts for over 11,600 
fires in homes, 1200 injuries and 156 deaths 
nationwide. While other causes for home 



fires have decreased, the percentage caused 
by candles is on the rise, with over 43 per- 
cent of the holiday season fires linked direct- 
ly to candles." 

Never leave a candle burning while nap- 
ping or at bedtime. 

Keep candles away from items that can 
catch fire such as clothing, books, paper and 
curtains. 

Do not place lit candles in windows 
where blinds or curtains can close over 
them. 

Place candles on a secure piece pf furni- 
ture in a holder that will not tip oven Make 
sure cahdleholders are non-combustible, 
and will collect dripping wax. 



Keep candles out of reach of children. 
Keep matches and lighters high and out of 
sight. 

Never leave a candle unattended in a 
room with a child or family pet. • 

During a power outage, if you must use a 
candle, avoid carrying a lit candle. Never go 
into a closet to look for things with a lit can- 
dle, or use them as a light source when fuel- 
ing items such as a kerosene heater or 
lantern. 

"Nearly half of all candle fires start in the 
bedroom," Volling said, but he was quick to 
add that candle fires are not limited to one 
specific area of a home, and there is no sin- 
gle contributing factor for candle fires. 



Gub Scouts of Pack 95 donate more than time to food pantry 



As part of its list of community service 
projects for the year, Cub Scout Pack 93 Den 2 
collected food in front of the Piggly Wiggly for 
four Hours to be donated to the Blessed Trinity 
Food Pantry. 

"This is the second year that we've done 



this," said James Peterson, assistant Cub Scout items were collected as well as $70 in cash, 
master. "We thought this would be a great idea "The boys were really great about being 

to do this and help out." out there all that time. They did a really good 

Ian Keller, Tyler Lowry, Maverick McBride, job," James Peterson said. 
Christian Peterson and Scott Zeh manned the The scouts delivered the food to the pantry

Getting moving in January 



It's not too early to start making.plans 
for January, and the Antioch Parks and 
Recreation Department is adding several 
new programs for a year of fun and fitness. 
"We're offering many new and exciting 
programs at and through The Jungle Gym 
II, located in Antioch," said Laurie Stahl, 
parks director. "Among the classes are 
Iceless Hockey, Sports Conditioning, Hatha 
Yoga and Basketball." 

Several of the classes are geared toward 
children, with hatha yoga being specifical- 
ly designated for adults. 

This class will be held at 9 a.m. on 
Tuesdays from Jan. 6 through Feb. 23.. It is 
said to be more than just an exercise, but a 
holistic experience to rejuvenate the mind, 
body and spirit with the focus being on 
alignment and breathing techniques that 
promote concentration, relaxation and 
flexibility. 

Iceless hockey is offered to children 
between the ages of 5-12 years old on 
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-7 p.m. The 



class begins on Jan. 6 and runs through 
Feb. 26, and offers fun without the pressure 
of having to win games. 

Sticks and pucks will be provided, but 
participants must supply their own gog- 
gles. 

Junior basketball will immediately fol- 
low iceless hockey from 7-8 p.m. on the 
same dates, and for the same age group of 
children. Clean gym shoes must be worn. 

The Rhino Club is a sports conditioning 
class for those between the'ages of 9-18 
years old. Weight training, stretching, plyo- 
metrics, agility training and speed drills are 
combined to provide a workout to enhance 
all sports. 

The class runs on Mondays and Fridays 
from Jan. 5 through Feb. 27 from 6-7 p.m. 
No special equipment is required. 

For more information about price and 
availability, call 847-395-2160 or stop by 
the Antioch Parks and Recreation 
Department at 806 Holbek, across the 
street from the Senior Center.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Solo art show opens 




Questions of hidden agenda 

Ms. (Connie) Hoth of Lake Villa has chosen 
to join the fray over who provides catering serv- 
ices to a Forest Preserve Golf Course Banquet 
facility. In her letter, she cast aspersions upon 
those who are opposed to having a single source 
supplier assigned by the- County Board. She 
implies those involved were "only practicing 
cronyism and nepotism. ' 

I cannot speak for several of the individuals, 
but I do know Judy Martini and serve withTaso 
Maravelas. During the course of the last two 
years, I have had to deal with Judy and can attest 
that whether I agree or disagree with her on an 
issue she always does what she feels is in the best 
interests of her constituents. 

■; She has maintained a professional relation- 
ship withTaso and on many occasions disagreed 
and acted in a manner contrary to what her 
"friend" requested. Other times when her con- 
stituents' interests coincide with the mayor of 
Antioch's constituents, she acted in a manner 
honorable to her position. 

I think the real question is why are Lake 
Countians required by the Lake County board to 
spend their hard-earned dollars with a caterer 
who is on the high end of the catering spectrum? 
Also, why is the Lake County board so deter- 
mined to send business and jobs outside the 
county when several caterers in the county can 
provide the same service in a quality manner at a 
fair price that includes the required insurances? 
When it comes to hidden agendas, I read 
that Ms. Hoth lives in Lake Villa. Could there be 
another source of the letter or a hidden agenda 
behind Ms. Hoth's letter? Oh, by the way, why 
were most of the Lake County caterers excluded 
from the Fair and Open bid process that Ms. 
Hoth is so proud of?

Roger Shule, president of the Antioch Fine 
Arts Foundation since the foundation's incep- 
tion two years ago, will exhibit his artwork in a 
solo art show hosted by SuzAnne's Custom 
Framing on Main Street. The grand opening 
event will.take place Dec. 19 from 6-8 p.m. 

"I have 18 pieces selected, but I don't 
know if there will be room to display all of 
them," Shule said of his work, which is mostly 
representational watercolor. 

Shule retired this spring from teaching at 
Antioch Upper Grade School after 14 years at 
the school. Originally from a small town south 
of Kankakee, Schule said much of his work, 
through landscapes, barns and florals with 
some interior subject matter, reflects his roots. 
"Since I've retired, I've been able to paint 
more," he said. "As part of my retirement, my 
wife took me to Paris and made notecards 
from sketches of Montmartre where artists 
gather to work." 

Shule said that in addition to watercolor, 
calligraphy and letterforms have always been 
part of his artistic makeup and that in the 
past, he has incorporated calligraphy into 
some clay platters. 

"I've always really liked letterforms and 
have created cards that had calligraphy on the 
^inside," he said. 

Shule said that all of the pieces exhibited 
would be for sale. In addition to originals, he 
will have prints of different sizes and cards for 
sale. 

He said some of the pieces are on the 
smaller side and some are larger. Some have 
already been framed and others have been left 
unfrarhed to allow buyers to frame them to 
taste. .

Balanced attack leads Antioch over Wauconda 




nether it is USC, Oklahoma or 
McMurray College, college foot- 
ball coaches must all do the 
same thing to stay or get to a 
successful level. 

That is, recruit, recruit and. .recruit some 
more. 

About 40 Division II and Division III 
Midwest colleges participated in the eighth' 
annual Football College Night at Libertyville 
High School. 

Antioch High's Joe Dziki was speaking 
with representatives from North Central 
College, but also made his way around dozens 
of other tables. All coaches brought shiny hel- 
mets arid,, equally shiny college, brochures. 
They asked questions about their school's 
football plans to financial aid packages, vital to 
.attract athletes for the smaller schools. 

"This was the best college football night: 
that we have had, We had 40 schools here,-', 
said LHS coach Randy Kuceyeski. 

"I was really happy with the season. We 
had a lot of great seniors who showed a lot of 
leadership," said NC Coach John Thorn, in his 
second year at the Napervtlle school. "We 
want students who will be a good fit, both" for 
football arid academics.' 

Reputation works both ways. Players from 
schools off successful seasons, such as 
Carmel, Libertyville or Grayslake, think that 
they'may be given a longer look see by col- 
leges. 

"Hopefully we will get some looks, now 
that we have been successful," said 
Grayslake's Andrew Forshee, The Rams won& 
the'ir first playoff game ever this yeatf'ldsing to 
McHenry by just one point in the second 
round. 

Kevin Biederer looks to play in college 
after the Rams'. season. He played as a defen- 
sive back early this fall, but caught mono and 
missed some of the 8-3 season. "I'm looking at 
University of Chicago and Rose-Hulman in 
Indiana," he said. "I was in the hospital for two 
weeks. The guys were great to me," he said of 
the fall. He did have a great game against Lake 
Zurich. 

"We all love to plat football. We had a great 
year. We will talk about all the fun times we 
had," said LHS player Greg Dugan of his 
team's runner-up season. "I'm looking at 
Carthage or Lake Forest." 

The Iowa Wesleyari coach stressed the 
opportunities at the Mt. Pleasant, Iowa school. 
His team cleaned house of young players after 
a one-win season last year, but that was not 
the main reason why, said coach Todd 
McGinny. 

"We have a new college president. I was* 
hired in June, so we had to endure a tough sea- 
son. But we are going to rebuild. We want to 
do that with Midwest kids from Illinois, 
Wisconsin, Indiana and Iowa. Those are the 
kids that are beating us every week," McGinny 
said. He said football is becoming complex, 
but the old running the football offense is 
coming back. "Three yards and a cloud of dust 
is coming back because it is good clock man- 
agement," he said. 

He said there are plans to build a new sta- 
dium. 

Ed DeGeorge is what you might describe 
as a small-college lifer. He has been head 
coach at Beloit College since 1977, with a 4-6 
record last year. He has a 127-124-1 record. He 
also coached for 10 years at Colorado College. 
"We had a lot of close games last year," he 
said. "We need students to average 28 on the 
ACT. That is a B plus average. We do get great 
kids. 

"I like Division III because it is all about 
the kids, "not about money or records, and you 
can do it right and impact lives." 

TJ.Markiewicz from Grant is now con- 
centrating on wrestling, but also likes football. 
"I had three sacks in our homecoming game 
this year," he said. "I'd like to go to a school 
where I can help them out to win."

This was the game Antioch coach Tom 
Duffy was hoping for. 

His team was hitting on all cylinders, mak- 
ing basket after basket and playing smother- 
: ing defense in a 65-47 win over Wauconda. 
"Hopefully we can keep playing that well 
the rest of the season," Duffy said: 

This came after the Sequoits stumbled out 
of the gate with a 2-5 record. 

And things will only continue to get better 
with the anticipated turn of leading scorer 
Kyle While, who has been out since the sea- 
son-opener against Wheeling with a twisted 
ankle. 

"Kyle is our best player, by far, " Duffy said. . 
"Getting him back will really help. He plays, 
hard and he's a good leader." 

In his absence several players stepped up 
their play against Wauconda. 

Antioch hadthree players in double-dig- 
its, led by Marshal Perry's season-high 17 
points. 

"Marshall had a great game," Duffy said. 
"He had some key steals that led to easy bas- 
kets in transition and he had two big three- 
pointers." 

Eric Lear added 14 points arid Chandler 
Kent scored 11 for Antioch (3-5). Brian 
Sternberg and Martin Pazanin each chipped 
in six points. 

The game was pretty even after the first 
quarter, with Antioch holding a slim 20-16 
lead. 

Then the Sequoits went on a roll in the 
second quarter, out-scoring the Bulldogs 16-4, 
holding them to l-for-10 shooting from the 
field in the quarter. 

Wauconda's Jay Grooms had. 8 of his 13 
points in the first quarter, until Duffy switched 
*[ the defense v to open .the secgnd quarter. 

"We realized that he kept taking the ball 
inside so we started to front him on defense," 
Duffy said. 

The Sequoits also controlled Wauconda's 
other post player, Alex Wallace, holding him 
without a basket in the second half. He scored 
nine points. 

"We just played really well in the second 
quarter," Duffy said. "And that was the differ- 
ence. The rest of the game was pretty even." 
The Sequoits out-scored Wauconda 17- 
12 in the third quarter and were out-scored 
15-12 in the fourth quarter with several- of 
their scorers on the bench, including Perry. 

Antioch has perhaps the biggest game of 
its season on Dec. 19 against Stevenson. Both

team's 65-47 win over Wauconda. The Sequoits will host Stevenson on Dec.

teams come in 0-2 in the NSC Lake division. 
"It's a big game, no one wants to go 0-3," 
Duffy said. "Plus it's our first conference 
home game." 



After' that, Antioch will begin play in the 
8-team Glenbard West holiday tourney, start- 
ing on Dec. 22 and continuing through Dec. 
26. 



Antioch wins Lake showdown over Warren 



By STEVE PETERSON 
speterson@lakelandmedia.com 

There was a reason Antioch High School 
girls basketball players were jumping up and 
down and accepting congratulations from 
fans. 

They had just beaten the Blue Devils, and, 
in a way, their own devil, in a 44-36 win. It was 
one of the few times Antioch girls had downed 
Warren at the Blue Devils' home court, per- 
haps the first since games were moved to 
Warren's Almond Road campus. 

Both teams had to deal with injuries. 
Warren lost three starters, Alexandra Leach 
(back), Giuleana Lopez and Kendra Payne 
(both shoulder injuries). Antioch learned that 
Lauren Scarenbrough would be out for the rest 
of the season due to an ACL injury. 

"It is awesome. We knew that they would 
be short handed and we took advantage of it," 
said ACHS leading scored Jennie Dewar. 

Dewar tallied 19 points and Katie Hofeldt 
added 11, including two treys. Katie Malcomb 
was right in the middle of the action with seven 
points, including two key fourth quarter free 
throws. 

"When you are down three starters like we 
are, and the calibre of players that they are you 
can't afford to shoot less than 50 percent from 
the free-throw line. We were 6-for-15," said 
WTHS Coach John Stanczykiewicz. 

Warren standout T.K. LaFleur did not 
score a point in the first half, as Antioch built a 



34-18 lead by the middle of the third quarter, 
but then caught fire, scoring 12 points against 
Antioch's zone defenses. It was her trey that 
brought Warren back to five points down at 
40-35. Antioch made 7-11 free throws in the 
fourth quarter to seal the win. 

On the bright side, -the role players who 
saw action Thursday gained valuable experi- 
ence, such as freshman guard Stacy Leach and 
junior forward Paula Neiweem (3 rebounds to 
give Warren chances off Antioch missed free 
throws). 

Senior guard Jessica Bollinger was the sec- 
ond-leading scorer, with eight points. Lopez 



'Tfiis is a big lift to win 
here, I think that we have a 
chance to win the division J 

Katie Hofeldt, Antioch guard 

had 15 points in a solid effort in a 64-49 loss to 
Mundelein. LaFleur had 12 in that game. 

Katherine Reynolds directs the offense 
well for Antioch and better shooters have led 
to a 2-0 record in the NSC Lake, 6-3 overall. 
Antioch also dovvned Lake Forest in divisional 
play. ACHS bounced back from a loss to 
Carmel, 51-38, earlier in the week. 

"Reynolds was at that level at the begin- 
ning of last year, but she had a blister and was 
out a month. She did not come back after 



Christmas and never regained form. She has 
taken where she left off. We are handling the 
ball so much better on the perimeter and we 
are a better shooting team," Antioch coach 
Don Zeman said. 

Antioch held the last two conference 
opponents for wins with under 40 points. 
"We are so much more athletic. We talk 
about it all the time, helping each other out, 
but we are able to do it now," Zeman said. 

Expectations are rising for the Sequoits 
in a wide-open division. Dewar came in 
averaging 14.5 points per game and Hofeldt 
was at 13.5. Dewar had 18 vs. Carmel and 
Hofeldt 17. 

"This is a big lift to win here. I think that 
we have a chance to win the division," 
Hofeldt said. 

Antioch took command with that 9-2 
run that featured putbacks by Dewar and a 
layup by Holly Roberts (three points). 

The two teams were scoreless in the 
first two minutes of the fourth quarter, 
before LeFleur brought the Blue Devils to 
within six, 34-28. She hit a 15-footer for a 
four-point deficit. Dewar answered with a 
layup and two free throws for a 40-32 mar- 
gin. 

Warren drops to 6-4 overall with the 
loss. Warren hosts Lake Forest Dec. 20 
before its own tournament begins Dec. 22. 

"In our four losses, we just have not 
been able to finish off teams at the end," 
Stanczykiewicz said.

College in Rensselear, Ind. for a 2-day indoor tournament Nov. 22-23. Lakeland 
finished the contest with a 4-1 record and tied for the best record in the tourna- 
ment with the Region Rage, a local Indiana team. Both teams posted the same 
record and were responsible for giving each other their one loss. Both teams 
allowed and. scored exactly the same number of runs in their five games. 
Because there was such an even match up, the officials named both "Co- 
Champions" for thetournameht. The team consists of: bottom row, from left, Kali 
Browning, Kaley Lindstrom, Sarnie Seamon, Alisa Walizer and Jennifer Precht, 
middle row, from left, Erin Schbenfelder, Alyssa Voykin, Allie Anttila, Jen Ignoffo, 
Kim Gall and Angela Marescalco and back row, from left, Roger PrecrnV Bill

barn that only 10 years ago was 
home to livestock is now a class- 
room and a showcase for per-' 
formers and public events. 

The Byron Colby Barn, locat- 
ed in Grayslake's Prairie Crossing 
Community, will be filled with the music of 
composers such as Francesco Landini, John 
Johnson and Joanambrosio Dalzia on 
Sunday, Dec. 21, at 4 p.m. 

Grayslake resident Joel Spears, lutenist, 
and Alison Attar, an Evanston harpist, will 
perform holiday music from medieval, 
Renaissance and baroque eras. 

And while "In Dulci Jubilo" may not be a 
widely recognized title, Spears promises that 
audience members will recognize the famed 
Christmas composition and many of the 
odier selections. 

"A lot of Christmas music is from this 
period," Spears said. 

The lutes and harps used are representa- 
tive of pre-1800 instruments. 

Audience members will enjoy a holiday 
tribute followed by a progression through 
time with lute/harp duets. . 

Attar, who just completed her doctorate 
in harp perfonnance at Northwestern 
University, will play an Italian triple harp 
similar in design to those popular from 1550 
to 1750. It is six feet tall with three rows of 
strings totaling 75 strings. 

The other harp Attar will play is smaller, 
with about 20 strings. 

Attar has been freelancing since the age . 
of 14,- when she first learned to play the 



instrument. Buqifwasn't until she was in col- 
hat she chose early music as her career. 
"it vvasthe unique sound of early music 
ylhat I think is beautiful," Attar said. "I find it 
more interesting (than conventional classical 
music)." 

Spears' musical career began as a teen- 
aged guitar player in a garage band. 

After learning that a classical composition 
he had taught himself on the guitar had been 
written for the lute, he was intrigued. 

"That started me diinking that was the 
instrument I should be playing," he said. "It 
took a few years, but eventually I switched to 
the lute." 

Both specialize in early music and work 
with area chamber musicians, operas and 
symphonies. 

"Music for Harp and Lute" is part of the 
* early music program, which is now in its sec- 
ond season at the facility. 

Local and regional talents perform six 
early music concerts throughout the season 
to crowds of 100 or more.at the barn. 

Spears commented that the acoustics of 
the barn are perfect for this type of music. 

"The shape of it is really good for cham- 
ber music," he said. 

People from as far away as Wisconsin and 
soudiern Illinois travel to the facility enjoy the 
concerts in the barn. 

Spears explained that the barn is conve- 
nient for those who don't want to travel to 
Chicago to experience a concert. 

The bam is owned by Prairie Holdings 
Corporation and managed by Stan 
Rosenberg, who attracts musicians by offer- 
ing a percentage of the ticket sales. 

"We're all partners in the success of this," 
Rosenberg said. 

The idea to hold concerts in the barn 
came about four years ago when musicians 
performed outside the barn to attract people 
to the community's organic farmers market. 

Vicky Ranney, president of Prairie 
Holdings Corp., was responsible for bringing 
die barn to the community. 

When Ranney and her husband, George, 
began building the Prairie Crossing develop- 
ment in 1994, they knew they would need a 
community center on the site. 

Ranney learned that the bam was going 
to be used for training by Libertyville firefight- 
ers and made arrangements to preserve it. 

The timber frame building had been built 
using pegs in 1885. It was later dismantled 
and stored, and in 1996 the barn was rebuilt 
through an old-fashioned barn-raising at the 
Prairie Crossing Community.- 

While the floor and timber framing are 
original to the building, new siding and a roof 
were added after the move. 

The barn, while beautiful, is expensive to 
heat and cool because it contains such a 
large, open space, Ranney said. Holding 
events at the barn helps keep costs down. 

The barn is a popular place for wedding 
receptions, concerts, lectures and parties. The 
Prairie Crossings Charter School holds its 
sixth-grade classes at the barn'. 

Ranney herself has attended many of the 
early music concerts. 

"They're fabulous," she said. 
Other early music concerts are planned . 
for February, March and April. 

Ticket prices for "Music for Harp and 
Lute" are $15 for adults; children under age 
16 are admitted free.

Redmoon Theater's 

12th annual 

Winter Pageant 

Redmoon Theater will perform the 12th 
annual Winter Pageant, celebrating the chang- 
ing of the seasons from Dec. 5-Jan. 11 at 
Redmoon Central (entrance at 1463 W. 
Hubbard, Chicago). 

' Conceived as a musical Western, this 
year's Winter Pageant follows the adventures 
of Lonesome Pete as he makes his way through 
a vast desert, guided only by an opera singing 
man in the moon. Along the way, he encoun- 
ters giant cacti infested with iguana; sWarm- 
ing, . mechanical vultures; a pack of tough 
Italian cowboys; a band of evil marauders and 
a town full of barbers with no hair. 

Director Frank Maugeri describes produc- 
tion as a wonderful holiday alternative, "which 
provides outrageous, inventive surprises 
through multiple styles of puppetry, mechani- 
cal objects, live music, song, a wildly adorned 
space and humorous tales." Redmoon Artistic 
Director Jim Lasko views the project as "a 
spectacular journey through the heart of win- 
ter to the hope of spring." 

Frank Maugeri pirector) is Associate 
Artistic Director of Redmoon Theater and 
recent recipient of the NEA/TCG Career 
Development Award for Directors. 

Kevin O'Donnell (Composer) has been a 
composer and musician in Chicago, since 
graduating from the Northwestern University 
School of Music in 1994. 

Redmoon Theater creates theatrical spec- 
tacles that transform streets, stages, and archi-. 
tectural landmarks into places of public cele- 
bration utilizing an original theatrical lan- 
guage capable of speaking across cultural, eth- 
nic, and generational boundaries.

Here we go again. 

We haven't even finished stuffing our- 
selves with Thanksgiving turkey and dad's 
checking his mailing list, stuffing Christmas 
cards, and licking the envelopes twice. 

Our family efficiency expert has good 
reason to seal those envelopes tighter than a 
caroler with too many Hot Toddies under his 
belt. Otherwise, he knows I'll spend the holi- 
days personalizing each greeting... probably 
finishing just in time for the New Year— 2010. 

I always start out carefully writing heart- 
felt wishes in my best penmanship., .and end 
up frantically scrawling notes as warm and 
personal as a chain letter from Marley's 
Ghost: 

Holiday greetings to one and all, 

Please pass along this card to 

Uncle Saul. 

How, you may ask, did I get my gall? 

I'm out of time, 

And too cheap to calL 

So glad tidings toyou and yours, 

With the New Year ringing in man 

more... 

(like offering my best to Cousin Lou next 
door.)

my husband didn't go ahead and mail those

cards last week. Sure enough, I've 1 convinced 
myself I have time to slip my unsent holiday 
message from last year in with his neatly pre- 
pared generic greeting. Lucky for me the fol- 
lowing family "news" still holds true. He'll be 
steamed when he finds out — but not as 
much as his pile of envelopes: 

Thank God I don't have to play the part 
of an emotional exterminator on one of those 
televisedmating shows. I've already found 
my soul mate, and.as far as I'm concerned, 
he deserves prime time, not those guys with 
mega-millions and six-pack abs. 

Why? Because he's brave enough to take 
his vacation in a beat up Suburban so chock 
full of family junk it looks like it's fleeing the 
Oklahoma dustbowl. 

Yep, if the measure of a man is plain 
tenacity, my guy certainly deserves his gold 

First of all, try packing seven bodies rang- 
ing in age from 9 to 75 in one vehicle to 
spend Christmas in a winter wonderland 
only five mind numbing hours away. 

So what if Gram has trouble with her 
blood sugar and requires a massive cooler of 
snacks to stave off diabetic coma? So what if 
Nana needs frequent walking to prevent , 
deep vein thrombosis? 

Dad is resigned to frequent stops. 

Anyway, who else can extricate Gram's 



cooler from layers of human belongings wor- 
thy of an archeological dig? And who else 
can play his own version of Twister, prying 
our 9 year old's fingers off her brothers' 
throats while returning everyone's stuff to its 
rightful place in the time it takes to gas up? 

So what does this macho guy get for all 
his trouble? 

For one, he gets the chance to hunker 
down in the hotel sauna when the kids dis- 
cover there isn't enough snow to ice a black 
eye. Talk about being sure of his masculini- 
ty... he doesn't even hesitate to split with a 
Barbie towel pinned with his old blue diaper 
pin when his mother-in-law starts stalking 
him like Jack Nicholson with cabin fever. 

And admit it, nothing is more attractive 
than a man willing to forgo material comforts 
for spiritual growth. 

How many guys are willing to pack up an 
assortment of queasy stomachs, runny noses, 
, and raging hormones for just one silent night 
at a local Christmas Eve service? So what if 
we're so late we're stuck in the back pew next 
to a Plexiglas cage called the Nursery. Who 
knew they were cloning Hannibal Lector 
behind us, and one was making a serious 
attempt to break through the Plexiglas with a 
Tonka Toy? When they finally distribute the 
Christmas candles we're like peasants in an 
old Frankenstein movie, warily keeping the 
toddlers at bay with our flaming torches. 

Forget Reality TV. I've got the real thing if 
you're looking for a relationship that lasts 
more than one season. If his kids gave it to 
him, my real man would wear a T-shirt that 
reads, "It takes GUTS to get this BIG." In my 
mind, they would be talking about his heart.

How-to guides make life 



easier 



/\ 




s merrymaking moves into high gear, 
two new books have come off the 
presses to guide the home bartender, 



"Holiday Cocktails" (Chronicle) by Jessica 
Strand, a slim volume with appealing photos, 
includes easy-to-follow instructions for 
preparing such whimsically titled drinks as 
The Snowplow, Naughty and Nice and Santa's 
Baby. Strand tells how to put together a bowl 
of traditional Wassail, a Norwegian punch, 
which she translates as "be in good health." 

It's listed on Amazonxom- as 
"Drinkology": The Art and Science of the 
Cocktail" (Stewart Tabori & Chang), by James 



Wassail 



COOKING 
t^BOOK 

- TomWitom 



Waller, is the more substantial of the two 
books. Its 384 pages are filled with sound 
advice on equipment and protocol, and it tells 
how to fixhundreds of libations, from the clas- 
sic martini to a strawberry daiquiri. Waller's 
reference could prove useful to professional 
and amateur bartenders.

What your child doesn't know about the 
healthful stuff in their burger will be 

500(1 for them 



There's your garden-variety school 
cafeteria mystery meat, and then there 
are blueberry burgers. 
In early August, a food scientist at 
the University of Maine made national news 
with his research about blending blueberries 
with extra-lean ground beef for more nutri- 
tional burgers. 

The concept: If kids can't tell the differ- 
ence, why not slip a vitamin or two into their 
food? 

.Those in charge of feeding students 
rejoiced at the simplicity of being able to put 
surplus meat and fruit from the .federal 
Department of Agriculture to good use. 
■"?* '-A1 Bushway, a University of Maine food- 
science professor, says he has had a steady 
stream of phone calls since an Associated 
Press story touted "blues burgers." A plug on 
NBC's "Today" show the same week added to 
the frenzy. 

: "Many want to know how to do it at 
home," he says. 

A couple of years ago, a Texas A&M pro- 
fessor came up with a burger with dried 
plums (what we used to call prunes). Schools 
in Denver and Montgomery counties in 
Maryland, started serving them soon after. 

The good news is that it's easy to add 
more nutritional value in your own kitchen. 

For burgers, just add about one or two 
tablespoons of blueberry puree to a pound of 
ground beef or turkey. Bushway uses fresh or 
frozen berries or even wild blueberry powder 
in his burgers. 

The berries need not be perfect. Overripe 





and underripe berries work, too. 
. It took Bushway about a year and a half to 
find the correct blend, he says. He suggests 
that home cooks first grind the berries in a 
blender or food processor. Besides the added 
nutrition, there are other bonuses. 

"You remove the tell tale taste one gets 
when you reheat a burger a day later," he 
says. 

His studies found that blueberries inhibit that 
aftertaste for 10 days — not that anyone 
would want to keep any meat that long. 

Bushway says burgers frozen six months 
also taste fine when thawed and reheated. 

. Blueberries have all kinds of nutritional 
pluses: fiber, vitamins and antioxidants 
(which can prevent cancer and heart disease). 
The hardest part may be convincing the pub- 
lic to try it. 

As soon as you add a new wrinkle to an 
old idea, people get nervous, says Jim Degen, 
a consultant for the California Dried Plum 
Board. 

For a couple of years, Degen has been 
adding dried plums to hamburgers in taste 

"You can't taste the dried plums," he 
insists. 

Not convinced? 

Degen suggests that cooks buy two 
pounds of 93 percent lean ground beef, mix in 
the fruit and make four burgers. Grill them 
side by side until the meat reaches 165 
degrees and then cut open. The fruit makes 
the burgers much juicier. 

The jdried plum version will be flowing 



with juice. 

"They are great-tasting burgers," he says. 

While Degen recommends turkey, veal, 
lamb and pork burgers, he says ground chick- 
en is light and there will be a color shift in the 
meat. 

... Degenadds one tablespoon of dried plum 
puree to a pound of lean ground beef. 

He suggests turning the plums into butter 



Plum Juicy Burgers 



by putting 2-3 ounces of pitted dried plums 
with a little hot water in a blender or foocT 
processor. Prune baby food works, too. 

Other fruits are bun-worthy, too. Dried 
cherries already have been used in Michigan, 
and there are recipes that use chopped 
apples, peaches, peanut butter and, of course, 
tofii. 

Mary D. Scourtes 



1 pound lean ground beef 

1 tablespoon prune baby food or dried 

:-. plum puree (see below) 

1/2 teaspoon salt - 



1/4 teaspoon pepper 

4 hamburger buns, split and warmed 

Lettuce leaves, tomato slices and condiments 

(optional) 



■': 



In medium bowl, combine beef and baby food; mix lightly but thoroughly.! 
For best appearance, form and cook patties immediately after mixing meat mixture. 
^Lightly shape into 4 patties that are 1/2-inch-thick. Heat large nonstick skillet 
;about 2 minutes over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 10-12 
•minutes to medium doneness (160 degrees), until no longer pink in centers and 
Juices show no pink color, turning once. 

Season with salt and pepper. Serve in buns with lettuce, tomato and 
condiments, if desired. 

Note: Patties also can be broiled or grilled. To broil, place patties on rack 
of broiler pan so surface of meat is 3-4 inches from heat. 

Broil 9-12 minutes to medium doneness or place patties on grid on grill 
over medium ash-covered coals. Grill 10-13 minutes to medium doneness, until ho 
longer pink in.center and juices show no pink color, turning once. 

Dried Plum Puree: In food processor, combine 2/3 cup (4 ounces) pitted^ 
jdried p|ums and 3 tablespoons water; process on and off until finely chopped. 
^Mak'es 1/4 cup (4 servings).

T oid of the Ring 



The conclusion of a 
poetic journey 




y he spectacle 

1 that is "The 

I Lord of the. 
.JL Rings: The Return 
of the King" concludes the 
fantastic trilogy, and of the 
three segments it is arguably 
the most powerful. "The 
Fellowship of the Ring" and 
"The Two Towers" had their 
own magical power; however, 
this is the kind of movie that 
gets a robust round of applause 
at its conclusion/Action and 
characters nearly beyond 
description occupy this world. 
Many questions are answered 
from the prior films and a res- 
olute ending ties it all together. 
Each year there are great direc- 
torial efforts, but we think that 
director Peter Jackson deserves 
a unanimous vote for an Oscar- 
Most moviegoers know that 
"LOTR" is in effect a single film 
that was delivered over the 
course of three years, with one 
installment arriving every 
twelvemonths.

W There are 
four key elements to this 
film, one of which is a quite ; 
effective ending of about 30 
minutes. Another is the juxta- 
position of emotions as battles 
rage and quiet detennination 
prevails. The ring is delivered to 
its fiery destination and a new 
world order is established. 

Frodo and Sam (Elijah 
Woods and Sean Astin) make 
their trek toward Mordor to 
destroy the ring. Their guide 
Gollum (Andy Serkis), who SamJ 
distrusts, is a schizophrenic vil- 
lain who argues with himself. 
We learn how Gollum came to 
be and what his motive is right 



at the start of the film, which , 
begins with a strange quietness. 
When one sees this film and 
reflects back to "The Two 
Towers," it's hard not to see the 
role of Gollum as a once-in-a- 
lifetime performance for Serkis. 
He makes the unreal real as he 
tries to drive a wedge between 
Frodo and Sam. He gets pur 
vote as the year's Best 
£i Supporting Actor.

their perilous journey to Mount 
Doom, in Mordor, Aragorn

(Vigg'o Mortensen) gathers reinforce- 
ments from near and far-away villages 
to fight the Ores. In addition, he enlists 
the help of an army of the dead, who 
wish to redeem themselves for prior 
sins. 

War rages at the castle and things 
are not looking good. New lines of 
defense are constantly being 
reordered. Nonstop action rules. And . 
there are more surprises to behold. 
Our favorites are the fire-breathing 
battering ram; the giant, cave-dwelling 
spider; and the ouliphants (prehistoric 
elephants), which Orlando Bloom 
(Legolas) scales like an otherworldly 
rock climber, latching on to arrows 
that have pierced the hide of the ani- 
mal. 

"The Lord of the Rings" series 
belongs in your DVD library^ Like 
"2001: A Space Odyssey," and 
"Alien, " it's a different movie when 
seen on the big screen at your local 
theater. Don't miss this'master- 
piece of filmmaking.

Joe Piummer as Louis Armstrong and Felicia Fields as Ella Fitzgerald in 
"JammirT With Pops." 



CRITIC'S CHOICE / Play 

."Jammin* With Pops" 
By Tom Witom 



The premise for Barry Harman's musi- 
cal revue "Jammin' With Pops," 
directed by Chuck Smith at Apple 
Tree Theatre, is a good one. 

Two jazz greats, Louis "Satchmo" 
Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, the first lady of 
song, get together one night in the mid-1960s 
to make music after a concert in a small-town 
theater. 

But even with two highly talented leads - 
Joe Piummer and Felicia Fields - the setup of 
this show seems contrived and the dialogue 
forced. 

Harman's wimpy script saddles his char- 
acters with sophomoric humor and mindless 
banter. The only time it works is when the 
two stars break into song. 

Plummer's toothy smile and gravelly 
voice are hard to resist as he works he way 
through a medley of Armstrong favoptes to 
the show-stopping "Wonderful World," which 
the audience is expected to believe is the first 
time he has encountered the number. 

Fields is no Fitzgerald, but she does offer a 
strong vocal range and expressively interprets 
the songs she performs, either singly ("The 



Man I Love") or together with Piummer 
("Porgy and Bess" medley and "Let's Call the 
Whole Thing Off, " for example). The two do a 
terrific job scat singing "The Heebie Jeebies." 

Among other familiar songs on the roster 
are "On the Sunny Side of the Street," 
"S'Wonderful," "I Got Rhythm" and "ATisket, 
ATasket." 

Apple Tree's space lends a feeling of inti- 
macy to the detailed backstage set created by 
Keith Pitts. Old props and equipment lie 
about helter-skelter, and old photos of jazz 
legends are much in evidence. 

Rounding out the cast are Kenn E. Head 
as a temperamental new guitarist in the group 
and Don Shell, playing Smiley, the band's 
mother-hen manager.

•OVAUKEE-The/re the largest ani- 
mals in the history of the Earth- larg- 
er, even, than dinosaurs-and begin- 
.ning Dec 26, they'll be at the 
HumphreyMAXDomeTheaterattheMilwaukee 
Public Museum. 

"Whales," a large-format film capturing some 
of the most majestic creatures on earth, puts you 
in the water with right whales, killer whales and 
humpbacks-all appearing life-sized on the 60- 
foot-tall IMAX screen. 

Swim eye-to-eye with a blue whale, all 100 




tons of it! The blue whale's heart is larger than a 
small car so large that heartbeats can be heard 
more than two miles away and children could 
crawl through its arteries! Hear the haunting song 
that whales use to communicate with each other- 
a voice that carries 1,000 miles in the water-boom- 
ing from 44 speakers with 12,000 watts of digital 
stereo! 

"Whales" journeys to the depths of the ocean, 
beneath the darkness and cold of the sea, to cap- 
ture remarkable footage bfthe animals. From the 
southern tip of Argentina, where right whales fm\- 



ic so close to the shore that scientists can study 
them from the beach; to the icy waters of Alaska 
where whales feed, "Whales" explains the life 
cycles of this oceanic royalty. 

Watch a humpback whale use its enormous 
tail to "ride the wind" asasailandswimalongwith 
a newborn calf as its mother pushes it to the sur- 
face for its first breath of air. See 10-ton behemoths 
leap from the water in playful breeching. Waddle 
on the beach with penguins and race through a . 
pack of dolphins with adventurous sea lions. 

Tickets are $7 for adults (16-61). $6 for seniors 



(62- plus) and $5.50 for children (3-15). Admission 
is free for children two and under seated on an 
adulrslap. Formore information or to make reser- 
vations, call 414 319-4629 or visit the Museum's 
Web site, wwwjnpm.edu. A $150 service fee is 
charged foradvance reservations. 

"Whales" joins the annual migration from the 
whales' mating site to their feeding ground at 
Peninsula Valdez in southern Argentina. Using 
thick calluses on their heads as horns, a pair of 
males battle in the surf for dominance and the 
choice of breeding partners. 

When their calves are strong enough, a pod of 
humpback whales sets off from Hawaii for the 
Alaskan coast to feed The journey is fraught with 
danger. The film follows the group as it crosses 
busy shipping lanes where loaded freighters can 
cut their enormous bodies in half. Mothers must 
also protect their young calves from the prowling 
Orca, or killer whale. 

When the nomadic humpbacks reach their ^ 
summertime home in the fjords and bays of 
coastal Alaska, individual whales will have lost a 
third of their weight during the migration. 

Though they are the largest mammals on 
earth, most whales, like the huge blue whale and 
the humpback, feed on the smallest of plants and 
animals. Whales take in great mouthfuls of sea- 
water and use their baleen, or millions of hair-like 
teeth, as a strainer. After the water rushes out, mil- 
lions of microscopic plants and animals called 
kill and plankton remain. Collectively, krill and 
plankton make up the largest mass of protein on 
earth. 

"Whales" features aerial footage of the pod 
employing group strategies to feed. Locating a 
concentration of krill, which appears as a red cloud 
on the sea surface, the whales swim beneath and 
blow massive bubbles, creating a net that keeps 
the krill and other small fish in the middle. Then 
nearly a dozen whales swim straight up toward the 
surface, mouths open, to devour the trapped 
meaL 

Produced by. Emmy-award winner David 
Clark with cinematography by Al Giddings of 
"Titanic" and "The Abyss." 

"Whales" is narrated by "Star Trek: The Next 
Generation" star PatrickStewart and runs through 
June 2004.

90-year-old 

did not die 

from flu, 

officials say 

A 90-year-old Lake County man 
died last week from a stroke after 
being admitted to a hospital with flu 
symptoms— not because of the flu 
as had been reported in some area 
newspapers. 

Leslie Piotrowski, communica- 
tions manager for the Lake County 
Health Department said earlier 
reports the man died of the flu had 
been changed with updated reports 
arrived indicated the cause of death 
to be by a stroke.' . 

The man was found to have the 
Influenza "A" virus and was suffering 
from other pre-existing illnesses. He 
had received this year's flu vaccina- 
tion, Piotrowski said. • 

Piotrowski said it was not impos- 
sible that the flu contributed to his 
death, but it is not on the death cer- 
tificate as the official cause of death. 

Numbers for deaths related to 
flu or pneumonia in recent years 
range from 2,000-3,000 in Illinois. 
The elderly, infirm and infants are at 
greatest risk for serious symptoms 
and/or death.

After having led the nation in the 
number of diagnosed human cases 
of West Nile virus in 2002, Illinois 
officials were preparing for more of 
the same in 2003. : v . 

Fortunately, the anticipated out- 
break never came this summer. 
Illinois had jiist 52 human cases and / 
one death in 2003 and only one case 
of West Nile; infection in Lake 
County. .::> 

In 2002, Illinois reported 884 
cases and 66 deaths, roughly 20 per- 
cent of the nation's total reported 
West Nile infections that year. 

Several factors contributed to 
this year's reduction in the number 
of West Nile cases in Illinois, accord- 
ing to George Balis, an entomologist 
with Roselle-based Clark Mosquito 
Control. 

"It was a three-pronged effect," 
Balis said. "The first was environ- 
mental conditions. It was a much 
cooler summer; we only had a hand- 
ful of days over 90 degrees. 

"The second was public aware- 
ness and education. We had hun- 
dreds of phone calls of people, 
reporting unknown catch basins, 
which are a breeding ground for the 
Culex mosquito, which carries West 
Nile, Newspapers and other media 
were also integral in educating the 
public {aboutWest Nile). 

"Third was control methods. The 
Illinois Department of Public Health 
issued a directive that catch basins 
receive treatment a minimum of two 
times per season." 

Local communities also con- 
tributed to the prevention of a West 
Nile outbreak, as most area villages 
with a population over 5,000 spent at 




much

Gurnee -led the way with 
$91,300 spent on abatement, fol- 
lowed by Mundelein, which spent 
$60,256. The Lake County Forest 
Preserve spent $225,000; 

Wauconda, Antloch, Grayslake 
and Libertyville all spent at least 
$25,000. 

"A lot more communities came 
on board with mosquito manage- 
ment," said Lake County Health 
Department Water Quality 
Specialist Mike Adam. 

So what was more important to 
the lack of human cases, environ- 
mental factors or human interven- 
tion? 

"That's a hard question to 
answer," Adam said. "But people 
definitely had an effect. We would 
have seen more cases if not for com-

Thanks to 'sortie guy* and many 
friends of the Undenhurst Early 
Childhood Center, a Chicago Grinch 
failed to. steal Christmas from about 
150 hospitalized children. 

On Dec. 16, LECC Director Frank 
Davis was elated as students at his 
pre-school completed their annual 
"gift of giving" effort, packing over 
100 gift boxes, and collecting 150 
toys for cliildren in hospitals. 

Minutes later, he received a call 
from his father-in-law, Jim Harney, 
owner of Aberdeen's Wedding 
Flowers, in Chicago, telling Davis 



that an additional 150 toys collected 
by the florist and his employees had 
been stolen from the store. 

After the story was on local TV and 
daily papers, Davis received a call the 
next morning from a man who asked, 
"Would $3,500 do it?" Davis, stunned, 
said, "Yes." When he asked who the 
gift was from, the man said, "Just say 
'some guy" gave you the money." 

More calls came in, and by noon, 
there were more than enough contri- 
butions U* cover the lost items twice, 
allowing Davis to add 150 more sick 
and injured children to Santa's list. 

"I went from This is great" to 'peo- 
ple are awful' to *people are wonder- 
ful,'" Davis said.

Uncertainty clouds outlook 

-report says 




Lake County area employers 
anticipate an unsteady hiring pace 
during the first quarter of 2004, 
according to the Manpower 
Employment Outlook Survey. 

From January to March, 17 per- 
cent of the companies interviewed 
plan to hire more employees/while 
20 percent intend to reduce their 
workforce, according to Manpower 
spokesperson Tom Turigliatto. 
Another 63 percent expect to main- 
tain their current stafflevels. 

"Lake County area employers 
reported more encouraging staffing 
plans for the fourth quarter when 20 
percent of the companies inter- 
viewed predicted an increase in hir- 
ing activity, while 13 percent 
planned to decrease the hiring 
pace," said Turigliatto. "A year ago 
at this time, employers were also 
more upbeat, when 23 percent of ' 
companies surveyed thought 
employment increases were likely 
and 13 percent intended to cut 
back." 

For the coming quarter, job 
prospects appear best in Non- 
Durable Goods Manufacturing and 
Wholesale/Retail Trade. Employers 

the Services and Public 



in 



Administration sectors plan to 
reduce staffing levels, while those in 
Durable Goods Manufacturing 
voice mixed hiring intentions. 
Hiring in other sectors is expected 
to remain unchanged. 

The national results of the 
Manpower Employment Oudook 
Survey reveal that U.S. employers 
continue to show optimism in their 
hiring forecast for the first: quarter.of . 
2004. For me first time in five years, 
employers expressed an increase in 
hiring expectations from the fourth 
quarter to the first quarter. 

Of the 16,000 U.S. employers 
that were polled, 20 percent said 
they plan to boost employment lev- 
els for the first three months of 
2004, while 13 percent anticipate a 
slower hiring pace. Sixty-one per- 
cent of employers expect to offer 
the same number of jobs as last 
quarter, and 6 percent are unsure of 
their first quarter employment y 
activity. When the seasonal varia- 
tions are removed from the survey 
results, the data reveals that the hir- 
ing forecast from January to March 
is more positive than it was last 
quarter and relatively consistent 
with the outlook a year ago.

Gun buy-back program takes 
over 1,000 weapons off the street 



Gurnee collects the 
most with 49 total 



By JEFF ZACHARY 
jzachary@lakelandmedia.com 

When you. combine the. 206 
guns purchased at this years Lake 
County Gun-Buy-Back Program 
with the 478 bought last year and 
the 408 taken off the street in 2001, 
the three-year total comes to 
1,081. 

And that's an impressive num- 
ber according to Lake County 
Crimestoppers Executive Director 
Andy Anderson. 

And although this year's num- 
bers did not compare to the previ- 
ous years, Anderson said the pro- 
gram was still a success. 

"There is no question in my 
mine that when you take over 200 
guns off the street that you are sav- 
ing at least one person's life," 
Anderson said. 

The buyback was sponsored 
by the Lake County 
Crimestoppers, the Lake County 
Sheriffs Department, the Lake 
County Chiefs of Police 
Association and the Lake County 
Metropolitan Enforcement Group. 

Anyone turning in a gun 
received a $50 gift certificate to a 
Lake County store or $50 cash. 

The following Police 
Departments purchased guns: 
Buffalo Grove, 29; Grayslake, 16; 
Gurnee, 49; Round Lake Beach, 16; 
Lake Forest, 24; Highland Park, 11;; 
Mundelein, 28; and Waukegan, 33.

Reasons make 
season special 

In an era where trampling tradition is popular and political 
correctness has taken the place of common sense, the Christmas 
season and what it stands for can seem oddly paradoxical. 
Still, where commercialism is bewailed on one hand and while 
fear of offending is ever present on the other hand, the time of year 
brings forth qualities that are worth practicing year around. Examples 
of greed and selfishness abound in a materialistic age, yet giving and 
sharing are part of the human spirit that endure. Nations go to war, yet 
teachings of good will toward men and desires for peace are 
immutable. 

Who among us as right-minded people would argue against the 
wisdom of giving and sharing, and the eternal quest for peace in the 
world? 

Christians are imbued with the miracle of advent. Indeed, the last 
days of the year are cause for all Americans to celebrate countless 
wonders provided by our local food pantries, religious groups, diverse 
charities and selfless civic organizations making sure no one goes hun- 
gry and no child is forgotten. 

For all the hustle and bustle, and despite the hurts that persist, 
the holiday season is a good time to be alive. Enjoy. Be glad. And 
remember, Merry Christmas. 

Images of 2005: 
seen and unseen 

Of all the images depicting events of 2003, the most arresting 
will be that of Saddam Hussein being pulled from a hole in 
the ground, bedraggled and bewildered. How ironic that the 
despot who once was among the most powerful and feared 
leaders in the world turns out to be a miserable, sickly, smelly, vermin- 
like creature when found alone. 

Shocking as is the picture of the cruel dictator, there are other 
images of 2003 that will be more lasting and significant in the quest for 
world peace. Among the permanent pictures of the year will be those 
depicting brave American soldiers bringing freedom to downtrodden 
Iraqi citizens. 

There is one picture that doubtlessly will not be part of the record of 
2003. That of the doubters and apologizers questioning what is good 
and right about America hanging their heads in shame as they bewail 
the War on Terrorism and advocate a hands-off policy on Saddam. 

When Tar out' 
becomes close in 



What a fix we're in. "Fix" might not exactly be the right 
word to describe the outward migration of suburbia, but 
it aptly. describes the Alice in Wonderland situation where 
once far out suburban communities now are close in or 
at least "closer in" to the Chicago center city as developers reach far- 
ther for new lands on which to build homes. 

The paradox of suburbia came to mind when a metropolitan news- 
paper spotlighted DeKalb as the next "frontier" for Chicago developers. 
A lot has changed at DeKalb, home of Northern Illinois University and 
once derided as "Suitcase U" because of the weekly Friday exodus of 
students to escape the boredom of a rural town. With a plentiful supply 
of less expensive land, the home of NIU is regarded as a boom town in 
the making. Of course, the emergence of the NIU Huskies as a national 
football power also has something to do with changing opinions. 

Demographers— and developers— see DeKalb as attractive because 
of the availability of homes for less money, the lure of campus cultural 
activities and a low crime rate. And, as a sort of tempting afterthought, 
malls and big-box retail stores also have arrived in the town more than 
60 miles west of the Loop. 

The same characteristics of less expensive land and bigger homes 
can be attributed to communities like Spring Grove, Richmond and 
west Kenosha County that now are attracting families that used to stop 
in Gurnee, Grayslake, Mundelein, Lake Zurich, Wauconda and the 
Round Lake area. With the economic leapfrog effect in sway, the cen- 
tral and west Lake County towns once considered on the outer edge of 
suburbia now are "close in" or sort of "close in" when distance is mea- 
sured in miles and not commuter drive time. 

Speaking of drive time, California long has been the champion of 
identifying suburbia by drive time rather than miles. With easy access 
and expressway speeds in excess of 70 mph, California suburbanites 
think nothing of 70 and 80 mile commutes. Piece of cake to get to a 
sizeable modern home at an affordable price. They cover a lot more 
geography in the same time Lake County commuters are inching along 
in northern Illinois gridlock. 

If DeKalb has a "suburban feel" as the writer gushed, does that mean 
we should feel kind of "closed in" or as we mentioned "closer in"? 




VIEWPOINT 






leave the X's out 



Everyone should be lucky 
enough to have an old- 
fashioned grandmother or 
a favorite aunt whose 
words and deeds provide special 
meaning to the Christmas season. 
Alice Davis, a grandmother her- 
self, wrote about her late Aunt 
Dovie who conducted a personal 
campaign every year exorting 
everyone to spell out Christmas — 
with no exceptions. "The abbrevia- 
tion Xmas was to be avoided as tak- 
ing Christ out of Christmas," related 
Alice. 

Aunt Dovie resided in Cairo, IL 
and conducted her ahti-X drive in 
the area where three states con- 
verge, Illinois, Missouri and 
Kentucky. Folks there generally are 
plain-spoken, hard working and 
Godfearing. 

Davis, a resident of Mundelein, 
recalled Aunt Dovie admonishing, 
"Don't be a lazy child, Alice.- Spell 
out Christmas. It's well worth your 
time." 

Aunt Dovie, besides her aversion 
to the short cut Xmas was known 
for serving kind words and good 
food. With no disrespect intended, 
Alice noted that there is historical 
precedence for .the X. Long ago 
when Christians were persecuted or 
executed, X marked the spot where 
a believer fell. An X was carved in 
caves where worshipers met. It 
turned on its side, an X becomes a

cross. At a time when paper and ink 
were scarce; X became a means of 
economy. Alice mentioned that ref- 
erence works continue to docu- 
ment that in the early church X was 
used to indicate Christ the Messiah. 

History notwithstanding, we're 
with Aunt Dovie on the X taboo. 
The long form— and the preferred , 
form in our opinion— still is 
Christmas. 

Remembering Simon 

U.S. Sen. Paul Simon was such an 
honest, decent, courteous person, 
you could like him as a friend even 
if you didn't like his politics. In an 
arena better known for pomposity 
and ego mania, Senator Simon 
always stood apart for his down-to- 
earth style and his respect for the 
common man. In a homespun way, 



'.-J 



the Downstate Democrat was dis- 
arming and captivating. Face-to- 
. face encounters with Paul Simon 
always were a warm and gracious 
experience. 

Back to school 

Tom Beck, Lakeland Media's 
award winning editorial cartoonist 
and a 2003 Golden Apple Award 
winner for teaching excellence, is 
returning to the classroom after a;; 
sabbatical at Northwestern 
University. Beck never missed a 
newspaper deadline, but he had to 
step lively to keep up with NU 
underclassmen." "Where do they get 
all their energy?" Beck reflected . ' 
after final exams. The fall semester 
at Northwestern was part of the 
teaching award. Being a student 
again was exhilarating and reward-" 
ing, but Beck added, "I found it's r 
easier to teach school than to go 
back to school." 

One man's family 

Sadie, the golden retriever who 
dominates our household, has 
taken over a Cat in the Hat doll 
meant to be a holiday decoration as 
her personal plaything. Poor Cat 
already is missing an eye and a leg, 
but Sadie is relentless in parading 
around with a disintegrating toy. 
By Christmas Eve, once jaunty Cat 
in the Hat will be only a memory. 



COMMENTARY 



Village of crosses continues to 




By Constance Colson 



It seems that the past few 
years, there have been fewer 
and fewer Christmas crosses 
on the houses and lawns of 
Wauconda. That is saddening 
because the crosses set our com- 
munity apart and made a state- 
ment about the true meaning of 
Christmas. The year that 
Wauconda started to put them up, I 
went from a "bah-humbug" person 
to one who looked forward to the 
Christmas season with a sense of 
excited expectation. 

Wauconda has welcomed many 
new residents since that day 1989, 
and perhaps they don't know of the 
cross tradition and how it started. 
Perhaps if they did, we would see 
some new crosses going up, 

I call it "the day of the crosses," 
that Sunday after Thanksgiving in 
1989. On that Sunday, the pastors 
of the churches in our community 
spoke out about an attack against 



our town, and a pending lawsuit 
being threatened by self-pro- 
claimed atheist, Robert Sherman. 

While not a resident of 
Wauconda, Mr. Sherman took it 
upon himself to dictate how we 
should celebrate Christmas. For all 
the 21 years that I had lived in 
Wauconda, every Christmas season 
was heralded by the lighting of 
crosses on top of two water towers. 
That year it was not to be. Mr, 
Sherman believed that they were a 
violation of the separation of 
church and state. He demanded 
that they be removed, and the town 
capitulated rather than be involved 
in an expensive lawsuit. Ironically, 
Mr. Sherman had no objections to 
replacing them with "secular" stars. 
As a Christian, I found his reason- 
ing amusing, while at the same 
time being enraged that an outsider 
could force his wishes on a whole 
town. This is his avocation, though 
he has forced many town to change 
their village seals, remove religious 



items from public property, etc. So, 
the.crosses, the symbol of Easter, 
were removed and replaced with 
shining stars of Bethlehem. 
That might have been the end of it 
if not for the ire of the residents of 
Wauconda. On that Sunday, our 
pastor exhorted us to put up our 
own crosses on our own property. 
All over Wauconda his message was 
being repeated by other pastors, 
and by word of mouth. There was a 
run on white Christmas lights in all 
the local stores. Soon you had to go 
far afield to find some, or be more 
creative and use colors. 

My kids and I retired to our 
garage and with the help of some 
stray lumber, a circular saw, a 
friendly neighbor, and dumb luck, 
we emerged two hours later with a 
five foot cross for our roof. Ours 
was one of the first, but by the end 
of the week we drove around our 
town of 5,000 people and counted

PARTY LINES, THE LAKELAND: NEWSPAPERS' COLUMN OF POLITICAL OPINION, IS PREPARED FROM STAFF REPORTS. 



Former politician singed by polities 




1 Westerman, former Lake 
County Board member and a past 
president of the Forest Preserve 
District shrugged offhis sacking 
from the Farm Heritage Committee as "poli- . 
tics." Hp 

The committee is studying sites to create 
a mid-century farmstead (1940s-1950s) and 
a modern new-age agricultural demonstra- 
tion. Being dropped from the committee, 
Westerman speculated, "probably was to 
settle some old scores." 

Westerman was notified by letter a few 
days before the committee met Dec. 11 to 
solidify a program for developing the Raven 
Glen Farm on Route 45 east of Antioch. 

A Republican, Westerman first gained 
prominence by knocking off powerful Bob 
Depke in a primary upset. He voluntarily 
stepped out of elective politics to tend a 
small farm and handle family business. 

Santa's the man 

The man behind the whiskers and red 
stocking cap could be Avon Township 
Supervisor Russ Christian. "I've been play- 
ing Santa Claus for a number of years. People 
don't know that," remarked Christian. Now 




Westerman: 

Political 'victim' 
wrested from 
farm committee. 



Foreman: 

Sees judicial 
robe more 
becoming than 
travel gear. 



Russ' secret is out. Ho, ho, ho. 

Eyes refs role 

Lake County Republican Chairman Tom 
Adams only smiled over a suggestion that a 
useful holiday gift will be a striped shirt so he 
can referee impending collisions like the 
Bob Depke vs. tarry Leafblad for a GOP 
nomination to the Lake County Board. 
Adams couldn't be baited into making a pre- 
diction on that battle. "They are both good 
Republicans," he said. 



Let them eat cake 

Cake replaced cookies twice as the snack 
of choice at Fox Lake Village Board meet- 
ings. Cake was served when former Trustee 
Floyd Edwards had his last meeting and 
when replacement Therese "Terrl" 
Zawada had her first meeting. Edwards was 
also active in Fox Lake-Round Lake Area 
Rotary Club. 

Support varies 

In a poll on support for a county-wide 
road tax, support ran as high as 85 percent 
in Antioch Township. Low point was 45 per- 
cent in Waukegan. Overall, 60 percent 
responded favorably to the question of 
increasing sales tax to a half cent from a 
quarter cent for county road improvements. 
County Board Rep. Angelo Kyle (D- 
Waukegan) was outspoken that the tax won't 
do much for his community. Former 
Libertyville Mayor JoAnn Eckman has 
signed on as chairman of a citizens group to 
push the tax plan. 

Simon knew Lake 

Political observers were quick to point 
out that the late U.S. Senator Paul Simon 



always included Lake County on his 
rounds at campaign time while most pre- 
sent-day Democrats running state-wide 
can't find their way north of Lake-Cook 
Road. 

Sitting pretty 

A Libertyville firm, Custom Vehicle 
Systems, Inc., is gaining a national reputa- 
tion for custom made, fiberglass bench seats 
for the rear of police cars that provide secu- 
rity, safety and hygiene needs. Libertyville 
police department required the special seats 
for six new interceptors. 

Coming home 

Fred Foreman confirmed a Party Lines 
heads up several weeks ago that he will seek 
a judgeship when he was part of a 
Republican candidates group presented to 
the public at a press conference. After serv- 
ing as the chief federal prosecutor for two 
years in Chicago and traveling extensively 
for a Chicago law firm for more than 10 
years, Foreman is looking forward to staying 
close to his Gurnee home for a change. He 
will compete in the Lake-McHenry County 
Circuit. 



LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 




g ethical behavior in elected officials 



Illinois residents deserve to know, that 
the elected officials who represent them 
are conducting themselves ethically. 
Legislators and the governor did the 
right thing by passing two comprehensive 
bills that make meaningful changes to the 
way elected officials, lobbyists and advisors - 
do business.. '.'.". 

While most lawmakers, and state employ- " ; 
ees hold themselves to high' standards, previ- 
ous abuses left Ulinoisans questioning the 
lack of oversight of state officials. Establishing 
inspectors general and creating ethics com- 
missions to review allegations of misconduct 
are strong measures that correct this over- 
sight. Strengthening whistleblower protec- 
tions will encourage witnesses of wrongdoing 
to come forward. 

House Bill 3412 requires state officers and 
employees, to complete an ethics training 
program. All units of local government must 
adopt similar ethics legislation that is at least 
as strict as the new state laws. These provi- 
sions insure that lawmakers and employees 
throughout Illinois fully understand the more 
rigorous standards and the state's commit- - 
ment to upholding them. 

Legislators and the governor did a good 
job of creating effective legislation with bipar- 
tisan support to address ethical issues for 
elected officials and state employees, and I'm 
proud to have sponsored this biU. Ulinoisans 
should be reassured that two strong bills have 
beenpassed. mUyRyg

Need signatures 

Illinois Citizens for Tax Relief is forming 
a grass roots organization to get a referen- 
dum on the November, 2004, ballot to 



address this issue. That referendum will ask 
the voters whether, "Real Estate Taxes will 
be reduced by 15 percent and whether the 
practice of re-evaluating the value of real 
estate by a triennial or quadrennial assess- 
ment should be eliminated and all future 
annual real estate assessments and tax 
•increases shall not exceed the Consumer 
Price Index (CPI). This is the index used by 
the government to award salary and social 
security increases. Furthermore, should the 
state mandate that all Illinois counties, 
townships, cities and villages use the gov- 
ernment published CPI as the maximum 
percentage that future real estate tax bills 
can be increased." 

We need volunteers from all over the 
State of Illinois to help get a petition signed 
'by Illinois registered voters. We need approxi- 
mately 750,000 signatures of registered vot- 
ers, turned in to the State Board of Elections 
in Springfield and each represented county 
clerk's office before May 1, 2004. 

If you can help in this cause, please send 

us (Illinois citizens for Tax Relief, 1244 S. State 

St., P.O. Box 182, Lemont, IL 60439); your 

name, address, phone number and e-mail 

address for further instructions. We will send 

you instructions and the petition forms we 

will be using.

Impressive museum 

We are former residents of Mundelein 
who visited the Fort Hill Heritage Museum 
on Dec. 6. We were so impressed with all the 
displays and artifacts and would like to rec- 
ommend it to all of your readers. It is beauti- 
fully managed by the Historical Society of 
the Fort Hill Country. The knowledge and 



dedication of Dottie Watson, curator and 
president, is highly commendable. The 
museum is an educational and interesting 
attraction for Mundelein and should be supr 
ported by all residents of the area.

COMMENTARY 



about 200. By the time that Christmas arrived 
there was close to 700. 

They were on front lawn, balconies, roof 
tops, house fronts, and in windows. To me 
it was like a Christmas miracle. The spirit of 
the village, which superseded the commer- 
cialism of the season, brought joy to my 

heart. ■ 

As the next Thanskgiving passed, the 
crosses started going up again, or were re-lit. 
More appeared, and then even more. I often 
wondered what people think as they drive 
through town. Does it cheer them? Inspire 
them? Do they just wonder what the heck 
we're doing? I think it must inspire some, 



because what started as a protest against 
being pushed around, survived 15 years later 
as a beautiful Christmas tradition that has 
spread beyond our boundaries. 

In the ensuing years I have spotted cross- 
es in Arlington Heights, Barrington, 
Mundelein, and as far away as Chicago and 
Rockford. I can't speak for anyone else, but 
this has deeply affected my life. How could 
something like this change a grinch into 
someone who now eagerly anticipates the 
season? Perhaps it is just the knowledge that 
the real meaning of Christmas is alive and 
well, at least in Wauconda, the village of 
Christmas Crosses, 



Air disputed tape 



Lake County made the right decision to 
air the disputed tape of one of its meetings. 
When a public entity records (video or 
audio) one of their open meetings they 
should always present it gavel to gavel and 
unedited. It would be a dangerous prece- 
dent for our cherished democracy to allow 
government officials and administrators to 
manipulate public record for the at home 
viewer or listener. 

The county board should review its poli- 
cy. Whatever the boara allows to take place at 
meetings should remain for the rest of the 
public to witness. Statements considered 
libelous made during public comment by 
members of the public or anytime during the 
meeting, even by elected officials or staff, 
should be handled in the judicial arena, if the 
aggrieved feels the need to do so.

Campaign abuse 

Bonnie Thomson Carter, our county 
board representative, has an opponent in 
the upcoming election. Jim Farrell. Bonnie's 
opponent officially announced he is run- • 
ning, but he's already crossed a line. 

Recently Bonnie's opponent faxed a 
political memo to the Wauconda village 
hall. We know this because'he "accidental- 
ly" faxed it to the assessor's office first. 
When an employee called and questioned 
him, he reluctantly admitted he meant for 
the letter to go to the village hall for Mayor 
Eschenbauch's wife to pick up! 

What doesn't he understand about elec- 
tioneering on taxpayer's money? This is illegal. 

Obviously our mayor doesn't see a prob- 
lem with running his chosen candidate's 
campaign through the village hall and using 
Wauconda's taxpayers' money to do it. It is 
apparent that Bonnie's opponent also 
believes it is OK to use taxpayer funded 
; resources for his campaign. Well, wq don't 
agree. 

The question taxpayers of Wauconda 
have to ask themselves is, "Do village offi- 
cials, their families, and their chosen candi- 
dates have the right to use equipment pur- 
chased with taxpayer dollars for their own 
personal political use"? We say "No way"! 

You can bet the wrong fax number won't 
be used again. But will the Wauconda vil- 
lage hall's fax machine (and other taxpayer 



funded materials) be subject to unethical 
use again? Possibly. It wouldn't surprise us , 
- considering what we've already observed.

Opportunity for all 

I am delighted to see the progress of St. 
Martin dePorres High School in Waukegan. As 
a Holy Child High School alum, I am so proud 
to see that the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus 
are one of the five religious organizations sup- 
porting this new Catholic High School. This 
new co-educational, college preparatory 
school will bring a unique opportunity to 
some very special freshmen and sophomores. 
I would ask everyone to keep the board of 
trustees, faculty, students and volunteers in 
their thoughts as they prepare to open the 
doors of S. Martin de Porres in the fall of 2004, 
It is a wonderful opportunity for all.

Valuable 'products' 

Thanks to Mike Stephans for his com- 
ment describing the Round Lake communi- 
ties as a "cesspool" and not wanting children 
from our Round Lake communities in the 
Grayslake School System. Let me offer him a 
trade: give us the funds generated by the 
Mallard Creek Shopping Center (Wal-Mart, 
Dominick's, and the others) and the income 
from the Jewel store on Rollins, Cub, Hobby 
Lobby, True Value, Pep Boy's, Radio Shack 
and the others and let us not forget the hun- 
dreds of thousand of dollars projected from 
the proposed Home Depot, all in Round Lake 
Beach, but paying Grayslake school taxes. We 
would gladly take the tax dollars from the 
Round Lake Beach homes in the Grayslake 
School District, the majority of which are val- 
ued and taxed near or above the average for 
Grayslake School District's homes, and we 
will gladly welcome the additional students. 
If Stephans is a product of the Grayslake 
Schools, please give us the children. I can 
assure you the Round Lake School District 
will not educate people to be like him intoler- 
ant and so Insensitive as to refer to fellow 
Americans they do not even know as human 
waste, simply because of their Zip Code, My 
taxes will go down and his up, the quality of 
the education in "our" schools will go up and 
Stephans will go down, if we get to educate 
"our" children and he gives back "our" signif- 
icant school tax revenues. Grayslake Schools 
receives a disproportionate financial advan- 
tage from educating the small number of 
wonderful children from the Round Lake 

communities. t .

munity intervention." 

This summer, Colorado had conditions 
similar to those Illinois had in 2002. Colorado 
led the nation in reported West Nile infections 
with 2,477, a nearly 400 percent jump from 
Illinois' 2002 record total. 

In fact, Nebraska (1,760. cases) and South 
Dakota (1,013 cases) also significantly exceed- 
ed Illinois' 2002 total. Despite the lack of 
Illinois cases in 2003, Balis warns that com- 
munities must not become complacent 

"West Nile is already endemic to Illinois, 
so it will be here for many years to come," 
Balis said. "The key to preventing an epidem- 
ic will be people continuing to reduce expo- 
sure and reduce mosquito populations." ' 

Adam agreed with Balis' assessment. 

"Just because we had a low year, people 
shouldn't let their guards down," Adam said. 
"We'll continue to stress the same recommen- 
dations next year."

Volunteers for the Lake County Council 
Against Sexual Assault represent the best in 
human nature — heroism, compassion and 
dedication to advocating for the rights of oth- 
ers. If these terms describe you, and you're 
looking to make a difference in the world, then 
you should consider training to become a vol- 
unteer advocate in LaCASA's fight against sex- 
ual assault. 

"Our training is designed for people who 
have never been involved in sexual assault ser- 
vices, but who want to make a difference by 
being a caring, dedicated advocate for rape 
and incest survivors," explained Deirdre 
Simpson-Rhoads, LaCASA's coordinator of 
volunteer, services. "Women of color and bi- 
lingual women are especially needed as volun- 
teers." If you are interested in a rewarding vol : 
unteer experience, call Deirdre Simpson- 
Rhoads at 847-244-1 187, Ext. 20.

Prevent Bias In Job Searches 

By Scott T. Fleiscbmatm 

' In the last column, we looked at the reality of bias in hiring. This 
time we will look at reducing the chances of that bias in a job 
, search. 

.Firstly, there are laws against the use of bias and prejudice in cer- 
tain hiring decisions, f (owner, In order to take advantage of those 
.laws, one needs to identify that adverse selection has occurred 
' because of a specific prejudice, and then it needs to be proven in a 
court of law. I believe that there is more bias than most people real- 
ize. However, there are better options than litigation, 
legal actionctA ; tinlyjpccur after the prejudice has, occurred. Most 
"candidates would rather eliminate that prejudice andget a job offer. 

k But they do not know how to accomplish that goal. Although there < 
are no sure-fire cures, some steps can be taken to improve the 
odds. 

The key to avoiding prejudice Is to delay giving Information that, 
could inspire dial bias. The consequences can only occur after (hey 
are discovered. If that happens after an applicant is determined to 
be the best candidate for a given position, he or she will most like- 
ly get the job regardless of the bias. 
As an example, an older man applies for a position with XYZ 
Corporation. The recruiter erroneously believes that a younger 
person would be the best candidate for the job. The older man sub- 
mils a resume thai does not reveal his age. After interviewing the 

■ older candidate, it may be determined that he would be an excellent 
employee, and he may be hired. 

But how is it possible to delay disclosure of ones age, race, spiritu- 
al beliefs or gender? It Is not always possible. However, here are 
several examples for limiting the information on a resume, while 
providing enough data to get the interview. 
Age - Age'is often Identified on resumes that give all of the specific 
dales and job tenures. Avoid giving too much information by elim- 
inating graduation dates. Also applicants can list the last few years 
of pertinent experience, followed by a comment like "Information 
about additional experience Is available upon request." This is' 

I effective if the most recent information is specifically related to the 
job that is being sought. , 

Name - Those with an obviously ethnic surname do not have many 
options. However, those who have surnames that are more com- 
mon could use the first Initial of a delineating first name along with J 
their generic middle name (S. Eric Nelson.) 
Address - Yes, some bias Is based on where one lives. To avoid this ' 

I prejudice, one could use a friend's address or a post office box on , 
the resume. 

Candidates need to be creative when applying for jobs. Providing 
the needed information while eliminating data diat does not relate 

' to ones ability to do die job Is creative. Especially if it prevents bias 
against a well qualified candidate. .

OF THE 

WEEK 





* 

Blake Is a young golden mix, full of happy energy. He loves 

life in the fast lane and everything is a reason to rejoice: 

meeting new people (or especially new dog walkers), 

exploring the Save-A-Pet grounds, and greeting some of the 

other dogs. Blake needs an active family that will involve him 

In their various activities. With all his energy, he sure doesn't 

want to be left alone whole everyone is out and about. He 

would love to learn new things everyday, maybe even attend 

some agility classes. No couch potato people for this boy. 

although he would enjoy a nice doggie bed or couch after a 

long day of having fun. For more Information about Blake, 

contact Save-A-Pet at: 847-740-7788 ext. mn

Toys can teach kids about giving to others 



HI Dr. Singer, 

With the holiday season 
approaching, I wanted to tell you 
about something that my family does 
every year. I think this will be valu- 
able information for your readers! 
We believe that the holidays are more 
about giving than getting. Each year, 
we have our kids round up the toys 
that are gathering dust or the toys 
they have outgrown, that are still in 
good condition, and have them help 
us get them in order to donate to 
charity so other kids who are less 
fortunate can have toys to play with. 
We have found that involving our 
kids In the process has been very 
rewarding. Our kids love this ritual 
as much as they love getting the new 
toys. We also do this with our cloth- 
ing each year. We believe that kids 
should know how to have fun giving 
as well as getting and I hope that by 
sharing this with your readers, more 
people will do the same thing. D.K. 

Dear D.K., 

What a wonderful thought and ritual! I 
think that many of us do get caught up in 
what we will get as opposed to what we 
will give. Especially kids! When you think 
about it, the actual real meaning of the 
holidays is about giving to others. We also 
all get caught up in what we will get for 
others in our family, as opposed to the 
many out there who don't have the ability 
to even get for their own family. 

I think it would be wonderful if every- 
one who reads this column did this very 
thing with their kids. All of us have toys 
and games laying around the house that 
don't get used anymore but are in good 
condition. We also all have articles of 
clothing that we haven't worn in decades, 




PARENT'S 
PLACE 

Dr. Sherri Singer 



that are in great condition, that are (be 
honest) 5 sizes too small, but we still hang 
on to that notion that we will fit into them 
again, come "H..E..double sticks" or high 
water! Wouldn't that article of clothing or 
lonely toy be better used by someone who 
didn't have it, than by your closet or shelf? 

There is another neat little thing that is 
available to do around this time of year. 
Our family tries to do this each and every 
year. Usually, the bigger department 
stores have Christmas trees with the 
names of kids, hanging in the tree. Each 
name represents a child that is in need. 
We usually go and get a few names each 
year and get them something they need. 
The note-card usually tells you what the 
age is and also what they need, so you 
know what to get for them. Kids usually 
love this, because they are learning how to 
feel important by giving. There is no feel- 
ing like it in the world. Also, Toys R, Us and 
Babies R Us have cards for donating 
money gifts to be used toward the pur- 
chases of toys for kids that don't have any. 

Along a similar line, those that know 
me, know that I love animals in a big way 
too and another thing we do at this time of 
year is make sure to take food, toys and 
donations to several animal shelters. A : 
couple of them that I know of are Save a 
Pet in Round Lake and Orphan's of the 
Storm in Riverwoods. There are many 
more. Many of you have pets that you and 
your kids love.' This is another way to help

your kids learn the meaning of the fun of 
giving. 

Let's all take part this year in D.K.'s rit- 
ual. Make sure to help your kids feel spe- 
cial by giving to others. Instead of adults 
getting all the things together for giving in 
a quiet way, involve your kids so that they 
can learn from being involved with it. We 
all get so much more out of life by giving 
than by getting! 

So, get out there and give!

Kidney procedure 
less invasive, quicker 
recover times 

A Lake County urologist is performing a 
new technique to remove cancerous, 
inflamed or infected kidneys, and kidney 
tumors, at Vista Health in Waukegan. In this 
procedure, Dr. Harsh Kumar (independent, 
-board-certified urologist) removes the affect- 
ed kidney or kidney tumor, through a small 
incision with the help of a special camera, 
instruments and his hands. The procedure, 
known as "hand-assisted laparscopic 
nephrectomy", can be completed in signifi- 
candy less time than the standard laparo- 
scopic procedure. This leading-edge proce- 
dure is being performed at select hospitals 
across the country. Close to home, Dr. Kumar 
has been performing hand-assisted laparo- 
scopic nephrectomies at Vista Health's Victory 
Memorial Hospital (Waukegan) for nearly two 
years. By using this technique, the procedure is 
significantly less invasive and can be more pre- 
cise than conventional kidney surgery, thus 
reducing the patient's length of hospital stay 
and improving recovery time 

"Compared with conventional surgery, 
the hand-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy 
greatiy reduces the size of the incision, the 
complexity of the operation, the patient's 
pain and recovery time. Essentially, I perform 
the surgical procedure through a much 
smaller abdominal incision — about 7-cm as 
compared with a normal 25 cm incision. 
With such a small incision, a patient's hospi- 
tal stay can be shortened from four to five 
days to a total of one to two days," explains 
Dr. Kumar. 

In addition, Dr. Kumar says typically a 
patient undergoing such a procedure through 
conventional surgery should expect to be out 
of work for six to eight weeks, with full recov- 
ery taking three to four months. But with the 
hand-assisted procedure, a patient can expect 
to be back up to speed within two weeks. 

Minimally invasive surgery is a surgical 
approach whereby essentially the same oper- 
ations are performed using specialized 
instruments designed to fit into the body 
through several tiny punctures instead of one 
large incision. Instead of looking directly at 
the part of the body being treated, the physi- 
cian monitors the procedure via a special 
video camera called a laparoscope inserted 
through one of the small ports. This allows 
better visualization of the operative site for 
more precise work. By eliminating the large 
incision and extensive dissections, much of 
the pain of recovery also can be eliminated. 
Dr. Kumar received specialized surgical 
training for hand-assisted laparoscopic 
nephrectomies at the Johnson and Johnson 
Medical Learning Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. 
Dr. Kumar has offices in Gurnee and 
Libertyville. For more information on hand- 
assisted laparoscopic nephrectomies, contact 
Dr. Kumar's office at 847-623-4010.

Corsairs get big win over Benet 



By STEVE PETERSON 
speterson@lakelandmedia.com 

Carmel High's girls basketball team will 
head into the Warren Christmas tournament 
with the confidence of knowing it can beat the 
Chicagoland's best. 

Carmel improved to 2-0 in the ESCC with 
a stunning 43-31 win oyer Benet The game 
was a case of Carmel's game plan working to 
perfection, puttingthe Redwings in a position 
that they had not had to cope with in their 10 
games— falling behind. 

CHS junior guard Jenny Eckhart scored 16 
points, including a heads up tip in on an offen- 
sive rebound off a free throw in the fourth 
quarter, and Caitlin Krombach added sue as 
did Sarah Henderson. 

Krombach and Eckhart did a yeoman's job 
against Benet's press in the closing minutes. 
Teresa Ogrinc was also a factor for Carmel, 
with eight points and senior Becky Smith 
added five. 

Previously No. 1 ranked Benet's stars had 
just seven combined points. "You are going to 
win a lot of games if you are going to do that," 
said Carmel coach John Ryan, . 

Carmel, 8-2, led by just four points in the 



second half, but doubled it by the end of the 
third quarter. A lay-up by Eckhart gave the 
home team a 34-26 lead. She then hit an out- 
side jumper for another eight-point cushion. 

Kaitlin Mclnerney, Amy Hunckler and 
Chandra Smith of Benet were a non-factor 
because of the CHS defense., Laura Langert 
tried to pick up the slack and scored 16. 

"It was tough, but'we worked against the 
press in practice. We go 5 on six and it worked 
really well. This is awesome. It is a huge lift for 
us. We have so much confidence now, but not 
too much. We know that we still have to work 
hard," Eckhart: said. "I work a lot on both 
inside and outside. I feel good about shooting 
from both. We knew they were No. 1 thinking 
it was a huge game." 

Krombach is playing full games now after 
recovering from her ACL injury. 

"It's a super win for us. It was a great 
defensive effort by our whole team. We played 
Benet the last five years since I have been here 
and twice over the summer, so we are very 
familiar with them. We put together a defen- 
sive scheme that we thought would work. The 
kids executed and played great We identified 
their three best players, Smith, Hunckler and 
Mclnerney (4 points) we decided to take those 



three away from them. You can't take every- 
thing away from a good team, but we wanted 
to take those players away," Ryan said. 

Carmel built up a 10-point lead, 39-29, 
entering the fourth quarter. Benet misfired on 
six straight possessions in the fourth. 

. "We talked about a key to the game was to 
jump on them early and let them know that 
they were in a game, rather than let them jump 
ahead. The kids did that We came out with a 
lot of energy. That energy translated into an 
early lead for us. We wore them out a little bit," 
Ryan said. 

Ryan complimented the play of Eckhart, a 
junior guard. 

"Jenny has a complete game. She can 
shoot from outside, she can put the ball on the 
floor and attack and shoot off the dribble and 
she can go all the way to the basket That is the 
sign of an excellent player. I label players as 
level I, level II and level III. A level I player can 
play all three and she can do it all," Ryan said. 

"Krombach is such a good three-point 
shooter, if she hits threes, such a momentum, 
they are huge. She hit a shot in the fourth quar- 
ter when they were closing the gap," Ryan 
said. 

Krombach explained the strategy on 



defense. 

"Becky (Smith) were matched off on 
Hunckler and Smith. We played a shadow, 
so we had no help responsibilities. It 
seemed to work. We knew that we had to 
take them away," Krombach said. 

Carmel does not have a home game 
until 12:30 p.m. Jan. 3 against Queen of 
Peace. The Warren tournament, which 
features a game against also-ranked 
Grayslake, begins Dec. 22. 

Grayslake and Carmel square off in 
that first session, at 11:30 a.m. Dec. 22. 
Carmel also plays Warren that day, at 7 
p.m. Carmel battles Lake Forest at 5:30 
p.m. Dec. 23 and Waukegan at 4 p.m. Dec. 
26. The tourney concludes for the Corsairs 
at 4 p.m. Dec. 27 with a game against 
Waukegan. 

It was a good early Christmas present 
for the Carmel faithful. The Class 6A state 
football champs sign is still fresh and 
many football players were on hand 
Saturday afternoon. They shouted "over- 
rated" to Benet in the closing seconds^ and 
as the final song played on the loud speak- 
er, it was a time to "Celebrate" at the 
Mundelein school. 



New faces look to lead Corsair grapplers 



By WESLEY WARD 
Lakeland Correspondent 



It is early in the season, but for the Carmel 
wrestling team, the 2003-04 season 
is full of hope fueled by an influx of talented 
freshman and sophomores. ' 

The difference for the Corsairs this year 
will be depth, something that the team lacked 
ddring last season's 8-12 campaign. 

"We suffered last year because of a lot of 
forfeits," said Carmel coach Joe Scordino. "We 
are much better and much deeper this year 
because of the. dynamite freshmarrand sopho- 
more teams we have had recently." 



So far the underclassmen have helped 
Carmel to a 1-0 start to the season and a 4th 
placed finish at a Buffalo Grove tournament 
over the weekend. 

In the Corsairs only dual match, a 41-40 
victory over Wauconda, three underclassmen 
won by a fall to give Carmel the edge. 

At 103 pounds, freshman DJ. Fairfield 
won decisively, and sophomores Joe Schnur 
(140 pounds) and John Hauser (145 pounds) 
also came up big for Carmel. 

Sadly, Scordino may be missing Hauser 
for the remainder of the season with a broken 
arm. Whfle the coach remains hopeful that the 
injury will not force Hauser put that long, he 



wants to remain cautious. 

"Hauser is going to be sorely missed," 
Scordino said. "He is a' great wrestler. 
Fortunately we have a senior who should be 
able to fill the void." 

While the youth movement has had a pos- 
itive impact on the Corsairs in the early going, 
the old guard remains reliable. 

Two-time sectional qualifier Jaran 
Rutledge is coming off of a 34-win season at 
215 pounds while fellow seniors Joe 
Samudovsky.and Jack Waller bom surpassed- 
20 victories last year. 

A 29-year coaching veteran, Scordino is 
pleased with how, this year's Corsairs compare 



with teams past. 

"This group of kids is very prepared hav- 
ing worked so hard during the spring," 
Scordino said. "I don't think I have coached 
a team with as positive work ethic as these 
guys. Everyone here wants them to be suc- 
cessful because of how hard they have 
worked." J 

As Scordino is quick to point out, the 
season has just started for the Corsairs and it 
is too early to predict where the chips may 
fall at season's end, but one thing he is sure 
of: "We need to be wrestling at our best at 
seasons end, and I know we are not there 

yet"

Throughout the first few weeks of the sea- 
son, CLC's lack of height continued to plague 
the team, as it was constantly out-rebounded, 
giving up several 2nd-chance baskets every 
game. . 

J With the return of 6-1 center Erica Brown 
from an injury, however, the Lady Lancers 
have gotten some much needed height and* 
toughness on the interior. 

■ In her first game back from injury, Brown 
led CLC to an 88-54 win over. Wright College. 
Brown had a game-high 19 points. 

The Lancers brought an 11-point lead into 
halftime, and broke the game open with a 16- 
run to start the second half. 

"Our fast break started working, and we 
were able to get the ball down the floor," CLC 
coach Bill Braman said. "After the (16-0) run, 
we were in complete control the rest of the 
game. 

Kristen Pogjayen had 16 points, Kristen 
Piasecki had 11 and Janeen Murphy arid 
Amber Henley each chipped in with 10 points. 

"We hope this game was a sign of things to 



making 
improvement 



come," Braman said. 

• CLC also played well the next night, but 
came up short in the end against a tough 
Olive-Harvey team, losing 74-62. 

CLC had a chance to pull within four with 
1:21 left, but a missed three-pointer and sev- 
eral Olive-Harvey . free-thrown down the 
stretch sealed the win. .. ' 

Brown had 21 points and Henley added 
14 : for CLC (3-7J. 

"We played very well, just not well 
enough to win," Braman said. "The score 
really doesn't reflect how close the game was; 
It was one of those games that you lose, but 
you can see a lot of improvement." 

Braman has a hard time pinpointing the 
reason for CLC's much-improved play of 
late. 

"It's hard to put a finger on the reason for 
our improvement," Braman said. "We've just 
cut down on our mental and physical errors. 
Plus our turnovers have steadily dropped." 

The Lancers will hope to continue their 
improved play in the Triton Tournament on 
Dec. 19-20. 

"We have hit a plateau, and we want to 
continue up the mountain top," Braman said.

Carmel: Dynasty in 








ff 



Will Carmel be able to repeat and gain a 
high level of playoff status next year? 

Will John Solan lead another record-set- 
ting year for the Corsairs offense? Junior line- 
men Thomas Deibler, Alex Schuster and Jim 
Clinton and Jack Lawlor will be back to forge 
the holes in opposing defenses. Darren Davis 
is back in the backfield as is Steve Hironimus. 
But playoff history says no for the Lake and 
McHenry County high school football champi- 
ons in the past. Carmel figures to be able to 
buck that trend. 

"The hope is that we have learned how to 
get to that level. The work ethic and template 
are there. We have been knocking at the door, 
with the semifinals in 2001, the state title game 
in the quarterfinals last year, and. this year's 
state championship. It's a process," said 
Carmel head coach Andy Bitto. 

Deerfield High won the state Class 5A title 
in 1975 and has made 19 playoff appearances, 
but did not make the playoffs in 1976. 
Woodstock won the title in 1983 but missed 
out in 1984. It was the same following the 



school's 1997 4A title. Marian Central won in 

1989, but did hot return to the post-season in 

1990. The Hurricanes won the title in Class 2A 
in 1983, 1986, 1987 and/ 1989. Richmond- 
Burton, the last nearby area winner in 1992 

-before Carmel's run this year, did not make the 
Class 2A playoffs in 1993. 

Multiple team championships for football 
are. led by Chicago Mt. Carmel and Joliet 
Catholic with nine each. Mt. Carmel won con- 
secutive titles from 1988-1991, and three times 
in the 1990s and the latest in 2000, according 
to the IHSA Record Books Web Site. 

Joliet Catholic won in four-of-five titles 
from 1975-78 and won again in 1981. Their last 
title was in 2000. 

Providence New Lennox won in 1987 in 4A 
and won three straight 1996 : 97, the last in 
2002, for eight overall. . 

Kankankee McNamara won three straight 
crowns in Class 3A, 1985-86 and four total. 
Wheaton Central, Warrenville South won four, 
from 1995, 1996 and bounced back in 1998.— 
By Steve Peterson 




new 



The black markings under the eyes were 
smeared. Bloody elbows, aches and pains. But 
perhaps most painful was the feeling of dejection. 

Head coach ;Randy Kuceyeski and his 
Wildcat football team had come so far, only to 
fall in double-overtime against Oswego in the 
Class 7A State title game in Champaign two 
weeks ago. 

"There's a bitter taste in our mouths, but 
also a great sense of accomplishment," said 
Illinois High School Association Player of the 
Year and co-captain Santino Panico. "We 
played with a lot of heart and definitely left it 
all on the field." 

And that the Cats did, to the tune of a school 
history-making 13-1 season that included a sec- 
ond North Suburban Lake title 7 and. of course, : 
the first-ever trip to the championship game. 

The appearance in Champaign marked* 
the furthest Libertyville has advanced ever. 
Last year under Kuceyeski, Libertyville made- 
it to the quarterfinals before falling to Lake 
Zurich.— By John Phelps

Libertyville's game against Prospect. 

And they were all treated to an awe-inspiring 
performance from both teams, starting right 
from the opening kickofF. 

Libertyville senior running back and Illinois 
Player of the Year Sanrino Panico took the open- 
ing kickofF and followed a wall of blockers all the 
way down the field for an 89-yard score. 

"I took the ball andsaw the blockers in front 
of me and I just took: off," Panico said. "That 
return really got us off to a good start." 

Libertyville's good start continued on 
Carmers ensuing possession, as the Corsairs 
suffered a relapse of the fumble-itis that struck 
them early in the season, 



'Adam made a great play and I saw the ball 
sitting there so I just jumped on it," Norcia said.- 

The Cats then marched down the field on an 
economic, 4-play drive, culminating with 
Fontana's second touchdown of the game, from 
9-yards out to tie the game 28-28 with 8 minutes

Our 2003 State Championship run was 
one of having to deal with disap- 
pointment, death, success and 
injury. 
Disappointment... 

In reflecting on the 2003 Carmel Corsair 
football season, I have to go back to the day it 
really began. 

It began on Nov. 16, 2002, the Saturday we 
lost to Mr. Carmel 28-21 in the 6A quarterfinals. 
We had beaten them in the third week of. 
the season ancj won the CMC White Title. We 
were 11-0 and fully expected to win at Gately 
Stadium again and continue on jto the 6A 
championship. 

But Mt. Carmel out-coached us and even- 
tually outplayed us by playing lower and using 
better technique. 

From that moment on our players and 
coaches were dedicated to redefine our 
approach to coaching and playing. We would 
have an opportunity to put this to the test one 
week later, when we reentered the Chicago 
Prep Bowl Playoffs. 

Our practices were intense and our focus 
was on emphasizing technique. Basically we 
wanted to play low, play fast and play smart 

Our players responded like champions by 
beating St Rita 40-7 and winning the 69th 
Chicago Prep Bowl 55-22 over Dunbar. 

This gave us a springboard to our off-sea- 
son workouts. They were very highly attended 
and we lifted four days a week from Dec. 5 on. 
During the spring our staff met almost '

Carmel coach 




4 phases of a great season 



every week, Honing down coaching techniques 
to optimize our 2003 coaching approach.- 

Moving into the summer, we started our 
passing leagues and began developing our 
passing game. 

We felt we had two outstanding quarter- 
backs in senior Mark Venegoni and sophomore 
Marshall Khayat The future at that position 
seemed pretty secure with these two young men. 

But on June 21, Marshall was killed in a motor- 
cycle accident Our players and communityhad to 
come together to try to heal one another. 

How could a person so gifted pass on 
so young? 

We all had to figure out a way we would be 
able to move on in a productive manner. Our 
basic resolve was to work harder together and 
just maybe we could deal with the grief by 



coming together as a team. 
Success... 

Our pre-season camp was outstanding. We 
progressed faster than anticipated. 

Our players were in great shape and we 
remained relatively healthy. Then the media's 
predictions were published. 

Many newspapers picked us as #1 in the 
state either in 6A or overall, which added a cer- ' 
tain element of pressure to perform at a higher 

During our first game we went down 10-0 
to Marist in the first quarter but rebounded to 
win 35-10. In our second game we had to score 
with 48 seconds remaining to beat Benet 
Academy 21-14. 

Something happened during our third 
week of practice; we began to put it all together. 

We played better and better and by week

Mark Venegoni 

Carmel quarterback 

A team effort 




What a season, what a year. I don't 
even know where to begin, well 
actually, yes I do. 
I will begin on Dec. 5, 2002, 
because that's when the 2003 season started 
for us. It started with us lifting as a team and 
gradually getting tougher. 

By the end of the summer I was won- 
dering what I had signed up for because it 
was the most strenuous and demanding 
off-season that I had ever experienced at 
Carmel. 

The offense got more publicity than any 
team in the state; our defense got absolutely 
none. 

This is the one thing that bugs me more 
than anything about the season because with- 
out the defense we would havestarted off 0-2. 
The offense was not playing up to par and the 
defense won those games for us. 

After those first two games; something 
clicked. I don't know ifit was the coaches rid- 
ing us harder, or just pure pride. 

We started having fun again. . 

The first weeks were pressure packed with 
the hype and we were stressed out, but after 
that we started playing the "game." That's all it 
is and ever will be. 

The Joliet Catholic game came around and 
we hadn't beaten those guys in almost 30 years. 




But records are meant to be broken, or 
smashed in this case. 

In front of a standing-room only crowd 
and a TV audience of more than 2 million peo- 
ple, we played our best overall game of the 
year. The feeling of winning a conference title 
cannot be matched; at least that's what I 
thought. 

We pretty much breezed through the play- 
offs. Without sounding cocky, we were a mon- 
ster truck and our opponents were the 
smashed cars. 

Everything was going smoothly until about 
8 minutes to go in the semifinal game against 
Minooka. 

The play "36" was called in the huddle and 
that meant it was double dive time. I ended up 
keeping the ball arid breaking my leg. 

I knew something was wrong when I heard 
a pop. I played it off on the sideline as if I was 
fine, but I knew inside that I was in some trou- 
ble. 

The championship week, the week I was 
waiting for since I can remember was not 
going to happen for me. I was devastated, but I 
couldn't show it. 

I had to help John Solan prepare for what 
was going to be the biggest game of our lives. I 
tried to keep a smile on my face t but to be hon- 
est I was a mess on the inside. 



I don't know how I kept a smile on my face \ 
when I just felt like crying. * 

Watching John on the field made me feel • 
better because he led the team to a victory. I : 
like to think that I helped in that a little bit, but • 
it was all him. : 

He played very well, and I just wished that • 
I could have gotten an opportunity to play. : 

The feeling of winning the conference title * 
was outweighed like a feather by an elephant : 
in this game. \ 

All of our hard work finally culminated i 
into a sense of accomplishment. We realized • 
our dreams and conquered our goals. : 





nine we were 8-0. We were scheduled to play 
Joliet Catholic Academy at home for the East 
Suburban Conference Title in front of 7,500 
people and on a national satellite television 
audience. 

Again our players came together to play 
outstanding football by beating JCA 41-14 for 
only the second time in school history. 

Our playoff run began by playing Notre 
Dame 42-18, Crystal Lake South 55-7 and 
Rockford Boylan in the quarterfinals 42-14. 
These wins matched our 2001 team by making 
it to me state semifinals. 

We were to take on the talented Minooka 
Indians at home 

Early in the fourth quarter, leading 28-14, 
Venegoni had his leg rolled. He sat out the rest 
of the game, with John Solan finishing it 

We earned out first shot at the 6A champi- 
onship by beating Minooka 40-20. 
Injury... 

Early reports on Marks leg were optimistic. 
He did have a hairline fracture in his leg but it was 
a straight break, which would allow hirnto play. 
He just needed to get his sprained ankle 
feeling better. ' 

The coaching staff had to assume Mark 
was not going to. play and we designed an 
offensive game plan that we felt Solan or Mike 
Serio could handle with only one week's 
preparation. < - 

We decided to give John and Mike equal' 
reps to see which one would be able to handle 
the pressure; 

By Wednesday Mark's ankle was not get 
ting any better and John was performing bet- 
ter. So Thursday, the staff decided that John 
would be our starter. 

On Nov. 29, the team made Carmel history 
by defeating Bloomington 54-26. It was simply 
amazing how everyone managed the week 
and how we would not let anything deter us 
from our ultimate goal. 
Conclusion... 

The 2003 Carmel Corsair football season 
made history because of the players and coach- 
es who dedicated themselves to accomplish 
predetermined goals — conference champs, 
undefeated season and a state championship. 
We had to deal with disappointment, 
death, success and injury on Our journey. 

Our senior leadership over every obstacle 
was exemplary. They guided our team with 
class and showed us the right way to handle 
difficult situations. 

The players overcame because of hard 
work, character and love. Each player on this 
team was an inspiration because they gave of 
themselves to achieve great things for this team.

A chance of a lifetime 



Playing football for the Wildcats in 2003 
was probably the most exciting season 
of my life. I had the opportunity to be 
coached by not only great coaches but 
great men. 

It was amazing how the community of 
Libertyville got behind us and supported us 
until the final seconds ticked off the clock in 
the State Championship. 

I owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to 
my coaches and everyone that supported our 
team in 2003. 

The one filing that I am most grateful for , 
are the players that I lined up with mis season. 
The relationships that I made- this year are so 
much more rewarding than anyvictory. 

My teammates taught me a lot about 
myself this year. They helped ;-me overcome 
adversity through hard times and celebrated 
with me during the good times. 

I guess my only regret this season is not 
being able to take the field one more season 
with these great young men. 

One more thing...I would give away every play I was in to win a State Championship with 
accolade, every yard, every touchdown, every these players.

Although these two teams would meet 
again 10 weeks later in the Class 7A quarterfi-

time i arid they both left it all on the field. 

The Cats needed a* Jast-secorid, 25-yard 
Hail Mary pass;; tipped by Panico into ;the 
hands of running back John Haas, to tie the 
game and send it into overtime. 

: A pair of overtime TD runs from Kevin 
Fontana (21 carries, 428 yards) and a gutsy 
hold by:the defense in the second overtime 
sealed me win for li bertyyille. i .

This; game meant a; httleniore for 
Ljbejtyville, as it was looking tb_av^rige_ 
the only regular season loss of the previ- 
ous season against a tough "North: 
Chicago squad. The, game was back-and- 
forth ^ throughout, with the Cats taking a 21- 
13 third-quarter lead on a 50-yard TD run 
from Kevin Fontaria (23 carries; 176 yards). 

After the Warhawks tied it at 21; :

After two close, contests a laugher 
was exactly what Libertyville needed 
and it got one in a 56-28 shellacking of 
NSC-Lake rival Mundelein. The Cats 
had a trio of backs who reached the 100- 
| yard mark: Kevin Fontana (141), Panico 
(119) and John Haas (105). All three also 
found the end zone at least once, with: 
Panico leading the way with three

and Libertyville's championship- 
caliber teams, the players first 
played youth football". And Libertyville Boys, 
Club, one of the leading youth football 
organizations in Lake County, was home to 
many, of them. 

The LBC has been in existence for over 
60 years and has grown to over 600 kids, 
grades three through eight, playing on five 
travel teams and 22 in-house teams. 

"We give local youths good football 
experience," said John Teichman, LBC com? 
missioner, Lightweight travel head coach 
and assistant Libertyville freshman coach. 
"We teach them fundamentals so they can 
move on to the next level." 

Libertyville's Santino Panico and Kevin 
and Jeff Fontana and Carmel's Jack Simmons 
"are" just some of the players from this year's 
high school teams that passed through the 
LBC. , \; ' 

"It was fun and it helped me tremen- 
dously,"' said Jeff Fontana, who played 
with the LBC ifor six years, "I got to learn 
everything; I played almost every posi- 
tion." 

Santino Panico, who also played in the 
LBC for six years, goes further in crediting 
the program. ' 

"I had a very positive experience," said 
Panico, who credited former youth coach 
and current Wauconda head coach Glen 
Kozlowski with much of his success. "Coach 
Kozlowski is the greatest coach I've ever had; 
he taught me so much. He helped me believe 
that lean excel in football." 

; ■ Kozlowski, a former wide receiver for the 
Chicago Bears, is just one of the coaches that 
' have come through the LBC with NFL expe- 
rience. 



Former Bears Jim Morrissey, Dave 
Duersoh and Ron Rivera, former Bears 
Defensive Coordinator Vince Tobin and for- , 
mer Ram Dee Fields have all coached in the 
LBC at one time. 

"It says a lot about the coaching in our; 
program," Teichman said. "A lot of the 
coaches don't even have kids in the pro- 
gram." 

There have also been children of current 
Bears in the program. 

Davaris Daniels, son of Bears defen- 
sive end Philip' Daniels, played • running V 
back for the in-house junior varsity 
Steelers and Bears offensive line coach 
Bob Wylie had two stepsons pass' through 
the program. 

Teichman was able to coach both Panico. 
and Jeff Fontana when they were on the. 
lightweight team. - 

"You could tell back then that they 
(Panico and Jeff Fontana) were great ath- 
letes," Teichman said. "They were leaders on 
and pff the field. They both'had great work 
ethics and busted their tails all the time." 

Panico also had the chance to play with 
Simmons; Kevin Fontana and. teammate 
John Haas on the 8th grade heavyweight 
travel team. 

"I was the smallest heavyweight on the 
team," Panico said. "Kevin and I had a real 
good relationship; we always did every- 
thing together. Haas was the same; he 
always made you smile. Simmons was 
quiet, but he was a great athlete; he could 
do anything. It was great playing with those 
guys. 

Simmons, who never lost a game while 
playing for the heavyweight team in 7th and 
8th grade, also looks back fondly on those 
two seasons. 

"I was the QB both seasons," Simmons 
said. "We had a pretty good backfield." 

He also credits the organization with 
g etting him started in fo otbajl . :

"I got a good foundation for football 
(from LBC)," Simmons said. "I might not 
have had the same passion and drive for the 
game if not for the league." 

LBC has also produced several NFL play- 
ers, including Jason Jowers, Kevin Walter and 
Jim Popp. Look for several names to poten- 
tially be added to that list in the years to 
come.

season 





With the holidays quickly 

approaching,- the toy and video game industry has begun pumping out all g|g 
of their new material to be gobbled up by shoppers across the country. Wi 
Whether you are buying for a newborn or an adult, there is never a lack of ^ 
ideas. This year, the usual suspects are out and some newcomers are creat- 
ing the biggest stirs. 

Some of the biggest sellers come from the younger child area, as the Leapstart 
Table, Turbo-Twist Math and Turbo Twist Spelling sit atop the selling list. Each of these 
items focus more making education fun, and offer an opportunity for parents to sneak 
some learning into their children's play-orientated lifestyle. 

Barbie has taken on yet another new look for this holiday season as Mattel 
releases the Swan Lake: Barbie as Odette Doll. With several different varieties of the 
doll, Barbie has also expanded more into the technological world as this doll fea- 
tures her own movie this shopping season. - 

Another figure who has taken on different features of the past few years is Elmo. 
After the incredibly popular "Tickle-Me Eimo" was released several years ago, this 
year Elmo has learned the Hokey-Pokey and will be dancing his way into countless 
amounts of homes this winter under the name "Hokey-Pokey Elmo." 

While the toys are good and fun for all the little one's this holiday, the big kids need presents 
too. That is where the video game industry has claimed their market. This holiday season 36 
percent of Americans are expected to give or receive.a video game according to the Digital 
Software Association. 

For some of the younger video game enthusiasts, Nintendo has been able to claim some of 
the top selling games spinning off their Mario series of games. Super Mario Four for Game Boy 
Advanced along with Mario Kart Double Dash for Nintendo Gamecube are two of the most 
popular this season. . . 



&&

Barbie 



...... ,;;,;, ,-,;;.. 

Tickle-Me-Elrno 
is back 



Some people urge for something / 

a little more realistic, and most 
|. often, a little more violent. The first- 
person shooting games are expected, once | 
again, to do great in sales as dozens of different 
types of shooting games hit the market this season. 
Halo is already the highest selling game in the history of X-Box, but has 
moved over to the PC for the holiday rush. The game is expected to make fantastic 
sales for X-Box, but new vehicles and weapons in the PC version should help add 
on to their sales numbers. 

Several other popular games from the past 
are bringing sequels to the market. Max Payne 
returns with Max Payne 2, and shouldn't disap- 
point those who got caught up in the slow- 
motion effects from the first game. The Jp 
Medal of Honor series put players on 
the coast of Normandy with its first 
game, and this year is taking them around the 
world to Pearl Harbor for its second release. 

The gift ideas never end at toys and video 
games as several new electronic items come 
to the stores like DVD camcorders. With so 
many new and returning items in the stores, ( 
finding that perfect gift shouldn't be too 
difficult of a task this holiday season. —

The holidays are a time for personal celebrations and 
'traditions shared with family and friends. Flowers have long played a special role in 
'the holiday festivities and are as personal and individual as the people doing the cel- 
ebrating. M 

Most people cannot imagine Christmas without poinsettias, evergreen garlands 
J 1 , and vivid holiday blooms, or a New Year's party without an explosion of flowers to ring in 
the newyear. Of course, of all the flowers on the market, the one most closely associated with 
Christmas is the poinsettia. 

. According to the Society of American Florists (SAF), poinsettias are native to Mexico, where 
they grow wild. The firstAmerican ambassador to Mexico, Joel Robert Poinsett, sent the first poin- 
settias home to South Carolina in 1825. Though red seems to be the color of choice for this pop- 
ular plant, the poinsettia comes in a variety of color choices: colors like white, pink, peach, yel- 
low, as well as speckled and marble varieties have expanded its uses as the perfect holiday gift for 
enhancing the home or office decor. 

To keep your poinsettia looking the best it can be throughout the holiday season, SAF offers 
these tips: 

• Keep it away from hot or cold drafts' (the tops of televisions and radiators). 



sparkle...with flowers 

• Keep the soil moist but not soggy. 

• Place the plant in a room with enough natural light. 

• When selecting a poinsettia plant, choose one with small, tightly clustered buds 
in the center. Look for crisp, bright, undamaged foliage. Avoid choosing a plant that is 
displayed in a drafty area. 

Floral Decorating Ideas 

• Greet guests at the door with a wreath holding a personal tree ornament for each of them to 
take home. 

• Use fresh flowers on the tree in water vials. You also can use dried or treated flowers — they 
are just as beautiful. 

• Place scented candles with fresh blossoms in each powder room. 

• Place garland on the mantel with fresh -flowers and candles scattered among the greenery 
to beautifully grace the room. 

• Float candles and flowers in treasured crystal or silver bowls to create a fabulous effect. 

• As guests leave, have a vase of loose flowers by the door. Invite them to take one home as a 
gift. .-

More and more people are learning to fly 



Thanks to BE A PILOT, the aviation- 
community program designed to educate . 
the public about the benefits, fun and 
adventure of flying. 

Through BE A PILOT, anyone interest- 
ed in becoming a pilot can take an intro- 
ductory flying lesson for just $49 and expe- 
rience what it's like to fly a small plane. 
Simply register online at 
www.beapilot.com or call 888-BE A PILOT 
. toll-free to receive an Introductory Flight. 
Certificate, which can be presented at 
nearly 2,000 participating flight schools 
nationwide to receive an introductory 
flight/for just $49. 

Since 1997, more than 200,000 people 
have registered for the Introductory Flight 
Certificate. Arid thousands of them are fly- 
ing today. 

Along the way, they've discovered that 
learning to fly is easier than they imagined, 
thanks to technological advances in flight 
training and computerization. It's also 
more affordable than they. thought. Many 
people qualify to fly solo with just 12-14 
hours of training for just oyer $1,000. You r 
can earn a private pilot license, wUh as few 
as 40 hours of training and practice flying. 
Even a more typical 50-70 hours can cost 
as little as $3,000-$7,000 depending on the 
region of the country. 

And being a pilot opens up a whole . 
new world of fun, adventure and opportu- 
nity. There's the feeling of personal growth 
and sense of accomplishment that comes 
with learning to fly. There's also the free- 
dom and independence of knowing you 
can fly above the stoplights or bumper-to- 
bumper traffic in miles of open sky. 

Sharing the experience of flying with 
family and friends also brings you closer. 
Imagine flying above congested highways 
to a remote vacation destination, or plan- 
ning a golf outing or weekend getaway 
with friends at a location that's now just a 
few hours - not days - from home. 
Be A Pilot opens the door to career 
opportunities 

Being a pilot can also open the door to 
a host of career opportunities for younger 
people or middle-aged career switchers. 

In fact, the aviation industry is begging 
for qualified pilots, from airline captains to 
new flight instructors, to handle its ever 
increasing needs. Consider that of the 
19,000 pilots hired last year to fill positions 
with the major, regional and commuter air- 
lines, the majority were civilian-trained in 
General Aviation. Even with the layoffs 
announced this fall by several major air-

lines, the long-term need for profes- 
sional pilots is expected to increase as 
more than'40,000 career pilots retire. 

Until recently, most airline pilots 
were trained by the military. But 
with military pilot training at 
historically low levels, 60 per 
cent of today's airline hires 
come from civilian General 
Aviation. 

It can all begin with an 
introductory flying lesson 
at a participating BE A PILOT 
flight school. To get the 
Introductory Flight 
Certificate, visit www.beapi- 
lot.com or call 888-BE A PILOT 
toll-free. 

BE A PILOT is a nonprof- 
it organization supported by 
more than 60 aviation com- 
panies, organizations and 
businesses dedicated to educating the pub- 
lic about the benefits of General Aviation fly- 
ing. 

This unique gift costs just $49, is guaran- 
teed to be remembered for a lifetime, and 
may even launch the recipient on a lifelong 
pastime. 

Because you can register and print the 
certificate from your computer on 
Christmas Eve after the last store closes, this 




truly is a great last-minute gift 
idea. This idea is also a natural if you're 
planning to feature exciting or "experiential" 
gifts, as well as great gifts under $50. 

BE A PILOT is a nonprofit organization 
dedicated to educating the public on the 
many benefits of personal flying. Since 1997, 
more than 200,000 people have registered 
for the BE A PILOT Introductory Flight 
Lesson, and over 30,000 have gone on to 
become student pilots.

p-waste gift-giving ideas 



Here are « /ew; fc? and suggestions on how to have a wonderful, 
gift-giving holiday season and still be earth-friendly 



• Not sure what to get someone? How about a gift certificate? That way, you 
know the gift will be kept. . 

• Make gifts. Everyone appreciates a home-cooked meal or baked goodies. 

• Consider nonmaterial gifts. Tickets to a sporting event, movie, play, or concert are a real 
■ treat. Or make a charitable donation in someone's name.

• When you go shopping, bring your own reusable bags; 

• Think durable. Consider how long an item will last before you make a purchase. Often, a 
cheaper item will wear out long before its more durable equivalent. ■ 

• And, always remember to look for items made with recycled content. 

No-Waste Gift-Wrapping Ideas 

• Wrap the gift in a drawstring bag and use an inexpensive luggage tag for the gift tag. 

• Decorate oversized gifts with just a bow that can be used again. 

• Put toy animalsin a cowboy hat and wrap a cowboy scarf around it. 

• Use a jewelry box'for some flea market "jewels." 

• Use a knit hat to wrap a small gift. Close the hat with a barrette or a decorative hat pin. 

• Games or toys for a child can go in a new backpack designed pillow case. 

• For a person who is handy, wrap a gift in a tool box., 

:• • Put blouses and other gifts in decorative hat boxes and tie with a '-hair ribbon. 
> ; ; »For the sewing enthusiast; wrap a gift in a fabric remnant and tie it with a piece of lace or 
ribbon. ... 

•Any kitchen gift can be wrapped in a colorfuldish towel. Kitchen utensils can pop but of an 
oven imitt/i: '•;;.:'.*; .- '•'•"' 

•=• Place home-baked cookies in a reusable tin box, a kitchen container, or a decorated oat- 
meal box. -':■' -:..'.'. 

• Use a colorful tablecloth to wrap dishes or dining room gifts. , 

• For a reader, wrap a book in a reusable canvas shopping sack. 

• Wrap tools for a gardener in the pocket of an apron, planter, or bucket. 

• Hang earrings, bracelets, or necklaces right on the Christmas tree, or put them inside or 
around an open ornament. 

• Search the ilea market, garage sales, and thrift stores for interesting old boxes that can be 
oised as decorative packages. ■':,->'

You've just invited four friends round to 
dinner. It's six o'clock, there's half a baked 
potato in your fridge and you're still at work. 
What are you going to do? 

• Make your shopping trip count, so when 
you get home, preparation time is minimal. 
Whenever I have to do a supermarket dash, I 
try to visualise the store and decide the route 
around the shop to correspond with the ingre- 
dients I need to buy. 

• Simple, fresh ingredients pave the way to 
a good starter. A really ripe melon and some 
Parma Ham is always a winner (if you sudden- 
ly need a vegetarian option, remove the Parma. 
Hani). 

•The fish section of most supermarkets 
wUl usually stock ready-made blinis, which are 
a good standby. Serve as a starter with smoked 
salmon and sour cream and chives sprinkled 
over the top. 

• Antipasto is an easy and interesting 
starter and one you can whip up from store- 
cupboard ingredients. As almost everything 
can be bought in olive oil, it makes sense to 
keep jars of artichoke hearts, sun-dried toma- 
toes, and roasted peppers for just this sort of 
occasion. - 

• Plan a main course that is high in flavour 
and low on maintenance: a stir-fry or Thai 
chicken dish is ideal. 

• Always^ do rice instead of potatoes 
because there's no preparation involved. 



Serve salad in place of vegetables. 

• When it comes to puddings, one of the 
most delicious and hassle-free is affogato: 
vanilla ice cream with a shot of hot espresso 
coffee over. the top. If you haven't got an 
espresso machine buy instant espresso coffee 
powder arid make up as instructed. 

• If you completely run out of time, a deli- 
cious cheeseboard served with nuts and fresh 
fruit is hard to beat. — byAmyWillcock , 




Lime sauce chicken 

This dish is simple to make and the sauce is 
wonderful. 

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 

1 lime, juiced 
3/4 cup Apple 100% Juice 

2 teaspoons cornstarch 
1 Chicken Bouillon Cubes 
Apple 100% Juice 

Spray a large skillet with vegetable cook- 
ing spray. Heat over medium heat before 
adding chicken breasts. Cook for 8 to 10 min- 
utes, or until tender,* turning to brown even- 
ly. Remove from the skillet and keep warm. 

In a mixing bowl combine lirrie juice, 
apple juice, cornstarch and bouillon cube. . 
Add to skillet and cook,, stirring, until thick.

Christmas Musical Chairs 



With one less chair than you have players, arrange chairs in two rows, 
back to back. 
Play Christmas music. 
Players march around the chairs. 
When the music stops, everyone sits in a chair. 
The player who doesn't have a chair is out. ■, 

Take away a chair. 
' Keep playing until one player (the winner) is left. 

Snowball Race 

If there is snow outside, play this 
outside.with real snowballs. If 
there is no snow, play inside with 
yarn balls, r 

Players line up against a wall.; 
Each player is given a snowball ■ 
on a spoon. 

On a signal, players race to the 
"North Pole" (the opposite wall.) 

The first player to reach the North Pole without dropping their snow- 
ball is the winner. '. 

/ " - ' ■■ ' ' :■ ■'."'■ 

Christmas Carol Charades 

One at a time, each player silently acts out the name of a Christmas 

song. 

Everyone tries to guess the song. 

The player who guesses the most songs wins. 

Candy Jar Guessing Game 

Count and put wrapped chocolate balls or candy kisses into a big jar. 




Players guess how many candies are in the jar, and write their guesses 

on slips of paper with their names. 

The player with.the guess that comes the closest gets to keep the 

candy! 

Pin the Nose on Rudolph 

You will need a large picture of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and 

red paper noses for each player. Write each player's name on his or 

her nose. 

Blindfold the players one at a time, spin them around, and have them 

pin (or tape) their nose to Rudolph. 

The player whose nose comes the closest to Rudolph's nose wins. 

Rudolph Hokey Pokey 

Play the Hokey Pokey, but use reindeer body parts: 

You put your red hose in, you put your red nose out, 

You put your red nose in, and you shake it all about, 

You do the Rudolph Pokey and you turn yourself around, .' 

That's what it's all about. Hey! 

(continue with anders, left hoof, right hoof, tail) 

Christmas Memory Game 

Everybody sits in a circle. 

The first player says, "In my Christmas stocking there is an ... " 

and says something that starts with an "A" like apple. 

The second person then repeats what the first person said \ 

and adds something that begins with "B." 

The third person must remember what the first people said 

and add a "C" item. . 

Continue through the alphabet. 

If a player can't remember all the items, that player drops out, 

until there is one player left.

eel good Christmas 
movies for the entire 
family to enjoy 



It ' s 
Christmas 
Day. The gifts 
have been 
opened, the 
food has been 
eaten and you're so 
tired you can't move a mus- 
cle — and it's only 3 p.m. 
What are you going to do for 
the rest of the day? 
It's time for some extra 
family bonding — in front 
of the television set. Pop some 
popcorn, toss another 
log in the fireplace, snug- 
gle up on the couch and throw a 
tape into the VCR. 

The following are some popular Christmas 
movies, both classics and more modern 
favorites, that you and your family are sure to 
love.

Barrymore, Thomas Mitchell, Henry Travers. 

Wonderful story of Stewart's character, 
who works hard all his life in a small town. He 
makes one major mistake and plans to suicide. 
Clarence, the guardian angel arrives to show 
Stewart that his life was indeed a valuable one 
and had contributed so much towards other 
people's happiness and success. It concludes

the out-of-town 




Oh you'd better not shout, you'd better 
-yJ^H not pout -- because the holidays are near and, 
i g^ -|f ready or not, so are your out-of-town holi- 
day guests. While hosting an extended 
1^" ; brood -of family members and friends can 
be both expensive and stressful, there are 
many ways to keep costs down and make 
the visit fun for everyone (including your- 

mJSM seir.) ■ 
A few preparation tips: 

, • Send clear invitations. An easy way to avoid die potential of guests overextending dieir vis- 
its is to send friendly and festive invitations in advance that highlight the beginning, and end, of 
the holiday event. 

. . • Plan the menus ahead of time. Feeding the hungry masses can become expensive for 
extended visits. Hosts and hostesses can reduce costs significandy by planning menus in advance 
and then stocking up on necessary ingredients during sales. 

•Buy an Entertainment savings book. To save on everything from dining out to carryout, to 
visits to local attractions or movie Uieatres, consider purchasing your local edition of the 
Entertainment book. Available in more than 160 markets, this popular savings book contains 
thousands of dollars' worth of 50 percent off and "2-for-l" discounts on meals, travel, leisure 
activities and more. 

• Prepare an itinerary. Plan a few key activities for die entire group -- dinners, tree-trimming, 
an evening of cookie baking or sledding - and let the guests know when each will take place. 
(Building holiday activities into the agenda also relieves the host of having to have everything 
done before die guests arrive). 

• Load up. Buy, rent or borrow (from friends or neighbors) a variety of videos, books 
and current magazines that can be spread throughout the house for-people to enjoy dur- 
ing unscheduled time. 



/^For The BEST 








And, when the visitors arrive: 

• Make time for free time. Too much togetherness is never a good thing. Be sure and allow 
for periods of free time so guests can do their own thing. If you have extra vehicles, provide 
them with a set of car keys and a map of the area. If you're located near a subway or bus trans- 
portation, provide everyone with schedules. . . 

• Keep breakfast and lunch simple. Unless you just can't get enough cooking, keep 
breakfast and lunch easy. For breakfast, consider setting the coffeemaker and preparing a 
tray of pastries, muffins and bagels before 
bed so guests can eat whenever they wake 
up. For lunch, put out some cold cuts and 
sandwich fixings or make a quick pot of 
chili. 

• Accept help when it's offered. No 
need to be a superhero when hosting 
overnight visitors. Most guests really do 
mean it when they ask if there's anything 
they can do. Accepting their offers not only 
helps prevent you from tiring, but also 
gives guests a sense that they're "earning 
their keep," and time to enjoy you! 

« Don't sweat the small stuff. Realize 
that family gatherings rarely go exactly as 
planned^ Unexpected things come up. It's 
not always perfect. By recognizing this, 
and simply appreciating this opportunity 
for quality time with loved ones, you'll 
help everyone to . relax during their stay, 
and look forward to the next holiday gath- 
ering.
