1 Visit us on the web: Anniversary of Hiroshima Bombing Norma Field, emeritus professor of East Asian Studies, University of Chicago, speaks on What it Means to remember Hiroshima in light of Fukishima at the Henry Moore sculpture Nuclear Energy on the University of Chicago campus, 5625 S. Ellis Ave., during an event commemorating the 72nd anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, Sunday, Aug. 6. Marc Monaghan Wednesday, August 9, 2017 Volume 135 Issue 31 Local Since 1882 Golf course redesign plans discussed in South Shore By GAUTAMA MEHTA Herald Intern On Thursday, July 27, representatives of the Chicago Parks Golf Alliance discussed their plans for a proposed golf course redesign in South Shore and Jackson Parks with South Shore business owners and residents at the most recent monthly meeting of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce. Ald. Leslie Hairston (5th) attended and spoke at the meeting. The meeting s attendees, while skeptical of aspects of the planning process, generally showed more support for the project than was displayed at the series of meetings recently held to solicit community input for the golf course and Obama Presidential Center plans, said Mary Ellen Holt, a member of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce. It was a very different meeting from the other ones, she said after the meeting, adding that people were really frustrated at the earlier meetings. Prominent educator Carol Adams, who is the community engagement representative for the proposed redesign, emphasized her local roots to give credibility to her support for the project. Adams, who is a former president of DuSable Museum, said she had lived in South Shore since 1970, and cited her involvement in the 1970s with the Coalition to Save the South Shore Country Club (which successfully advocated to stop the Parks District from demolishing the building now housing the South Shore Cultural Center) to attest to her commitment to the park and surrounding community. She made her case for the golf course redesign speaking as a homeowner in the community who had seen the neighborhood s property values plummet and wanted to see them rise again. Adams also emphasized that she understood the community members skepticism, but sought to reassure them. Is this all being arranged and prepared for other people? Nothing could be further from the truth, she said at the meeting. Adams said the golf course restoration would benefit users of South Shore Cultural Center, because the golfing will be out. Currently, golf course operations are housed in the cultural center; in the proposed plan, they will be moved to a separate facility. Adams said this move would increase opportunities for using the cultural center the way that those of us who fought for it thought it should be used: as a cultural center, not a wedding venue. Brian Hogan, co-founding director of the Chicago Parks Golf Alliance, said, If there s one word we could remove from the discussion, it would be elite. He said that local golfers and longtime users of the existing golf course would be able to play at discounted prices subsidized by high prices for players from out of town. Two golfers in the room disputed the feasibility of this policy. Hogan said the CPGA expected to raise $30 million in private charitable donations to fund the golf course restoration. He also said the construction of the new course would provide employment opportunities for locals, and said job postings would all be advertised on the CPGA website ( ), where a Marketing and Communications Associate position is currently listed. Hogan said the number of job opportunities at the new golf course would be significantly higher than at the existing courses, which has relatively few employees on site on a daily basis. And he said the new course would benefit 71st Street businesses because players would be interested in getting a meal or a drink nearby before or after playing. Keeping people here and bringing more people here into the neighborhood is a priority, Hogan said. This was disputed by Holt, who noted that the new entrance to the golf course in the proposed design was on 63rd Street, not 71st Street, where the entrance to the South Shore Golf Course is currently located. Several of the meeting s attendees voiced their shared concern regarding participation in the planning process. We simply don t want to be left out of the loop when it comes to marketing and development strategies, said one 71st Street business owner, who noted that he was generally supportive of the project, adding, We need traffic over here, period. We need to be heard, and we Hales to reopen with STEM focus By TONIA HILL A class of 50 freshmen is expected to walk the halls of Hales Franciscan High School, 4930 S. Cottage Grove Ave., this fall. The school was closed last year due to low enrollment rates and financial struggles. Hales will still stay true to its traditional Catholic education, but with a twist, a focus on science technology, engineering, and math (STEM) said Acting Hales President Anthony Daniels-Halisi. Daniels-Halisi joined on as acting president at Hales last year. He previously ran a private school called New Concept School in Chicago. He is also one of four co-founders of Betty Shabazz International Charter Schools, 7822 S. Dobson Ave., where he served as CEO until Daniels-Halisi said the desire is to not run into the same issues that caused the school to close last year. He cited factors such as competition from selective enrollment and charter schools, migration out of the neighborhood and city, and Catholic school closings on the south and west sides that were feeders into Hales as some of the reasons for low enrollment in recent years. In the school year, the school only had 37 students, and 18 of those students graduated. The school wasn t responding in an environment that was changing rapidly, Daniels-Halisi said. Funding has also been an issue for the school. In years past, Hales costs were covered by the Big Shoulders Fund and other benefactors such as Michael Jordan, whose foundation committed $5 million over a five year period. Daniels-Halisi said when the funds they needed were in place that it allowed the school to have a solid foundation, but that it didn t allow us to become competitive in an environment that was becoming more competitive for fewer students, Daniels-Halisi said. We needed to pause to conserve limited resources See GOLF on page 6 but just as importantly redefine who we re going to be. Daniels-Halisi has worked alongside Hales board over the last year to conserve monies and bring down the size of the student body. He said the school would have no more than students once all grade levels are filled in the future. The group also looked to expand Hales traditional education curriculum. We have expanded Hales Franciscan s model from a traditional Catholic school education to a traditional Catholic school education with an engineering entrepreneurship focus tied to community service learning, Daniels-Halisi said. Hales has forged partnerships with the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), the University of Chicago, the National Society of Black Engineers and the Illinois Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

Harper Court, is expected to open late this fall. The brewery, which was first expected to open this summer, will be a combined restaurant and bar featuring a full pub menu unique to the location as well as their signature artisan ales that are brewed in Dexter, Mich. The 5,800-square-foot restaurant and brewery will serve craft beers, distilled spirits, and wines available through the Northern United Brewing Company (NUBC) brand, according to craftbeer.com. The brewery will also feature both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as walk-up ordering service. The Jolly Pumpkin,1504 E. Harper Court, is expected to open in late fall.

Marc Monagha A source close to the project said the brewery would be open by Oct. 1. Kilwins expands to Michigan Avenue By JOSEPH PHILLIPS HPKCC now collecting used books By TONIA HILL The 11th annual Hyde Park Used Book Sale is approaching. The Hyde Park Community Conference (HPKCC) will begin collecting books on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 13. Jane Ciacci, a co-chair for the book fair, said they have already received 400 boxes of books ahead of the next Sunday s collection date. Last year, Ciacci said they received 100 boxes of books before they officially began collecting books. The fair has been in existence for decades and was once run by the Hyde Park Co-op, this year marks HPKCC s 11th year running the book fair that draws book lovers from all over the city. The book fair features about 40,000 to 50,000 books from multiple genres. The mystery genre is by far the most popular at the fair. The used book sale is held in the Hyde Park Shopping Center Plaza at 55th Street and Lake Park Avenue. Ciacci said they rent about 88 tables for the fair that takes place over Columbus Day Weekend. Those books that are not picked up will be donated to non-profits who have registered to do so. We sell as much as we can and then on Monday afternoon a truck comes and takes away everything we haven t sold or given away to nonprofits, Ciacci said. They take everything that s left over and either sell it or recycle it, if it s not reusable, or they donate it. See BOOKS on page 3 After nearly 10 years in business, Jackie Jackson, owner of Kilwins, 5226 S. Harper Ave., will be opening a new store on Michigan Avenue. The store will open Aug. 12, or shortly after Aug. 15, downtown at the old Metropolitan Tower Building, 310 S. Michigan Ave. The announcement came after the company made plans to work the four-day festival event Lollapalooza from Aug Kilwins Chicago will be vendors at the Lollapalooza festival this week, said Jackson, who said she was inspired by Oprah Winfrey to open the Michigan Avenue location. At the Michigan Avenue location, I will have a new business partner, Jackson said. My daughter. Janel Jackson, 23, a recent college graduate out of Western Michigan University (Kalamazoo, Mich.), will bring her background in marketing and management to help her mother run the family s downtown store.

She is currently a model at BMG Model Chicago and a makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics. Jackson said that the process of obtaining the property wasn t easy. It s been a long journey, Jackson said. We signed our lease last September [2016] but just recently got possession of the space June 6 to complete our build out. Jackson explained that her company s original opening date was scheduled for spring of 2017, but Photo courtesy of Jackie Jackson was delayed due to the wait for condo association approval by building management, signage approval by the city, a permit for construction and a city inspection to make sure her company met the requirements to build on a property with landmark status. Jackson s business partner and coowner of Kilwins, Kenneth Faulkner, will continue to run store operations in Hyde Park.

Barbara Flynn Currie (D-25) I hope Governor Bruce Rauner s veto of Senate Bill 1 (SB1) doesn t blow up our best chance in generations to fix the state s system of financing public education. Without SB1, we will continue providing the least equitable and the least adequate funding for public schools of any state in the nation. The governor called the bill a bailout for Chicago. Not true. In fact, on a per pupil basis, more than a quarter of the state s schools do better under SB1 than does Chicago. Politifact underscored this point when they rated the governor s bailout claim as false. The new formula does take into account costs, like the cost of teacher pensions, incurred by the Chicago public schools but by no other district in the state. The governor s veto removes this small stab at equity, even though, under SB1, real parity between Chicago and every other school district won t be reached until all districts are funded adequately. In his enthusiasm to sock it to Chicago, the governor managed to create big problems for lots of other school districts. Many cities, including Chicago, use tax increment financing (TIF) as an economic development tool. During the life of the TIF, new revenues are generally unavailable to schools, parks and other units of local government. The governor s veto pretends that those dollars are in fact available to pay for public schools. Schools in the 319 municipalities that have established TIFs, including Bellwood, Marion and Rockford, will be surprised and not a little upset to discover that state aid payments will be reduced because of local revenues that in fact are not available. And does the Governor really want to pit local economic development goals against schoolchildren? Similarly, the governor treats all property value within a school district as value the district can use, even when tax caps are in place and the district can only tax a portion of the value. There are some 70 school districts, including Chicago, that will lose money under this provision. Between TIFs and tax caps, the governor s changes hurt school districts that can t take advantage of increased property values. If the governor doesn t like the way TIFs operate, a better approach would be to offer improvements. And if he doesn t like property tax caps, perhaps he should propose abolishing them. It s certainly unfair to assume school districts have revenues available that they in fact cannot access. This is the governor who says he wants to freeze property taxes. Why then punish school districts with property tax limitations? SB1 establishes a state minimum funding level for public education. It can t and doesn t guarantee that the level will be reached in each and every budget year. Rather, the minimum funding level sets our sights on adequate funding as an important goal. It also acts as the mechanism to make sure that, however much is appropriated, the districts with the greatest need will be first in line for whatever new funding is available. Without the minimum funding level, dollars will continue to go to affluent areas at the expense of all the others. I think that removing the minimum funding level has to raise questions about the depth of the governor s commitment to school funding reform. In SB 1, lawmakers included mechanisms to make sure that changes in the real costs of educating our children would continue to be part Dissapointed in Jackson Park PAC s support of the PGA Golf Course To the Editor: I am deeply disappointed that the Jackson Park PAC continues to affirm the proposed PGA Golf Course plans. It was clear during the last public meeting held by the 5th Ward Alderman that numerous residents of the Southeast Side have significant concerns about these plans that have not been adequately addressed. The ETHOS (Environment Transportation, Health & Open Space) Block Club that I represent outright opposes these plans. I thought that PACs were supposed to represent the residents who use the parks, not pro golfers and tourists from elsewhere. Southeast side residents have already given up significant acreage for the Obama Library. ETHOS believes we should not be forced to give up more, including our beloved nature sanctuary, our dog park, open space for family unions and the Chosen Few House music fest, and existing facilities for sports that our youth engage in. We also fear that the profit motive with this pro golf course will become greater and more powerful over time than any compromises, concessions, or promises that the PGA sponsors might make to us now, such as stating that our South Shore Cultural Center will remain available for resident s utilization, that there won t be a wall built around the golf course (a wall would prevent peepers from watching tournaments for free when hefty admission prices to watch are charged), that local amateur golfers will continue to have affordable, ready access to the course, that traffic (even with arterial street closures) and parking will be fully accommodated without sacrificing even more green space The list of problems for those of us who live here continues. And what Mail: Letters to the Editor, Hyde Park Herald, 1435 E. Hyde Park Blvd., Chicago, IL Fax: Letters are due Wednesday by noon and must include a name, address and daytime telephone number or address. Letters may be edited for space. are the benefits? Do we really think that PGA Golfers and their fans will regularly shop at the small, minority owned businesses in our communities? These are the types of businesses we want to see proliferate in South Shore. Will PGA Golfers and their fans bring us a grocery store in South Shore, or put the young men standing on our corners into a job program? Do you really think, realistically, even for a minute, that the young caddie program that the PGA planners are touting will really help large numbers of our Southeast Side youth? ETHOS wants change and redevelopment, just not this! ETHOS advocates for the PGA plans to be thrown out and an independent researcher brought in who would do extensive focus groups and surveys of our residents to determine what we want and need for the future of Jackson Park. We want The People s Park that Obama recently described. We have lots of great ideas for self-determination but we just have not been asked. The PGA plans are so fast-tracked that opportunities for true community input are extremely limited including input that many of us don t want this at all. Was this perhaps part of the PGA Golf Course sponsors plan? Why did the Jackson Park PAC ever sign onto this without thoroughly asking the communities? Sincerely, A. Anne Holcomb ETHOS Block Club Chair The Park District needs to get its priorities straight To the Editor: In an article published in the Hyde Park Herald, on March 4, 2015, the Chicago Park District stated that they intended on rebuilding the shoreline between 45th Street to 51st Street in either 2017 or This announcement came after the storm of October 31, 2014 resulted in severe damage to this area and the closing of the bike and foot paths for some time. The Park District did accomplish superficial repairs to this area but did not address the structural problems that led to this problem. We are currently into the third quarter of 2017 and nothing additional has been done and it appears it has been deferred again as was done in 2006 after the Park District had announced plans in earlier years. But the Park District appears to be moving forward to rebuild the shoreline between 67th to 71st streets as part of the Tiger Woods Golf Course proposal. As the proponents of this golf course state the 2nd hole of the golf course is flooded when there is severe storms and this problem needs to be fixed. It is my opinion that the thousands of people who utilize the paths between 45th to 51st streets year round, for biking, walking, running and rollerblading, should take precedence over the few who will pass through the 2nd hole of the golf course for part of the year. The Park District needs to get its priorities straight. Michael Hoke How will the building of the Obama Presidential Center and Jackson Park - South Shore Golf Course affect 4th Ward residents? Share your thoughts with us: Letters to the Editor, Hyde Park Herald, 1525 E. 53rd Street, Suite 920, Chicago, IL CURRIE continued of the equation. The governor s decision to veto this language means we ll be left without knowing whether our funding level is keeping up with increases in costs. With a static measure, we will look, over time, much closer to adequate funding than we or really are. This is one of the major problems with our current system, where the dollar amount to reach full funding is so low that the concept is meaningless. The governor made other changes that will hurt the least advantaged schools. It s no wonder that his veto doesn t have a single organizational proponent among the members of the education community those groups continue to support SB1 as it went to his desk. And the governor managed, along the way, to blow a $221 million hole in the budget for the coming year. That we can fix. But we can t fix the funding system if we permit the Governor s veto to blow up our best chance in generations to reform school funding in Illinois.

It s at a time when the city s on fire, Daniels-Halisi said. Young African American males need Hales they need what it is that we do historically, they need the mentoring. Daniels-Halisi said he is aware that there will be a level of struggle in the first year. He believes as the people see how the school has rebranded itself then the school will grow and more students will be enrolled into the school. The school also plans to advertise and fundraise to get the word out. What we re doing at Hales is making sure that we put together a sustainable structure that ensures that the school is around for another 54 years, Daniels-Halisi said.

6 6 Hyde Park Herald, August 9, 2017 SPORTS Chicago Sky seeks partnerships in Hyde Park By JOSEPH PHILLIPS the Wintrust Arena, 2200 E. Cermak Rd. The next season for the WNBA starts in spring of Since the announcement of the move, the Chicago Sky Cares Foundation has been seeking out ways to be more involved with communities on the south side, said Jordan Johnson, manager of community relations for Chicago Sky. Being involved with communities on the south side requires us networking and partnering with businesses and organizations, who have a passion to pay it forward in creative ways, to make a strong impact together, Johnson said. During Thursday s meeting, Jordan said that the Chicago Sky Cares Foundation s goal is to establish partnerships within the Hyde Park community through education, charity programs, health and wellness, and special events. The foundation is already working with Little Black Pearl, 1060 E. 47th St., and the South Side YMCA, 6330 S. Stony Island Ave. Jordan said the foundation offers: Charity Ticket Programs: That provide memorable experiences at Chicago Sky games at Wintrust Arena for underserved youth and families, veterans, faith-based organizations and charity non-profit organizations. This includes donated tickets and transportation as well as fundraising. Health and Wellness Programs: That are designed to host basketball clinics and wellness programs promoting healthy lifestyles to youth. Community Partnerships and Special Event Programs: That works to fundraise and continue to build a positive legacy in Chicago. A representative from the city s Women s National Basketball (WNBA) team Chicago Sky visited the Hyde Park Community Kenwood Conference s (HPKCC) monthly meeting, Thursday, Aug. 3, to discuss the possibility of establishing a future partnership. After playing in the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill. for nearly eight seasons, The Chicago Sky announced that it will be moving back to Chicago and the team will play at HPKCC to back Bixler Park Advisory Council By TONIA HILL Members of the Hyde Park- Kenwood Community Conference (HPKCC), on Thursday, Aug. 3, agreed to be the fiscal sponsor for the Bixler Playlot Park Advisory Council (Bixler PAC). Bixler PAC, which was formed last year, was previously under Friends of the Park said Bixler PAC Chairwoman Mila Jameson. The group moved on from FOP and sought out a sponsorship with local nonprofit organizations similar to HPKCC. Jameson said at the suggestion of another PAC member she considered the HPKCC, who also sponsors the Nichols Park Advisory Council and has done so for decades. We wanted to go with a local organization that s been around and has a good reputation, Jameson said. Now we can do more than just make phone calls. We re able to have fundraisers and apply for grants. To make improvements at Bixler Playlot Park, 1372 E. 57th St., the PAC needed to have a non-profit fiscal status to raise donations or have funds, which the HPKCC will provide for the Bixler PAC per their agreement. Now that the PAC has the support of the HPKCC it can move forward with raising funds for park improvements. George Rumsey president of the HPKCC said the PAC is serious about improving Bixler. The PAC is planning to install two permanent chess tables in a vacant space south of the Bixler Playlot Park near 56th Street and South Kenwood Avenue. The PAC was one of eight organizations that were recently awarded a Neighborhood Enhancement Grant from the South East Chicago Commission (SECC). Bixler PAC will use the funds for a beautification project. The chess tables will be concrete, sustainable and similar to the chess tables that were once in Harper Court. Jameson said the grant from the SECC provided a portion of the funds for the project. We re working with the local businesses on 57th Street to raise the remainder of the funds, Jameson said. She noted that the PAC would also have a public fundraiser in the future to help close the gap. The chess tables will be installed this fall. Rumsey sees the new partnership with the PAC as a way for HPKCC to connect with the 57th Street. One of the holes that the conference [HPKCC] has right now is we don t have a connection to 57th Street, Rumsey said. We re big on 53rd, 55th [streets] and Lake Park [Avenue]. I was interested in working with them to form a bridge into that part of Hyde Park so that we learn more about it and what needs to be done. HPKCC bylaws also require that any program operating through the HPKCC must have at least one representative from the board who will serve a three-year term as a member of the HPKCC board. As chairwoman of the Bixler PAC, Jameson has secured a space on the ballot for upcoming board member elections for the HPKCC where she would need to be elected by HPKCC members.

Owen M. Lawson III By JOSEPH PHILLIPS With a quest to bring the first ever Dog Park to the 4th ward, Ald. Sophia King (4th) and her staff have formed a committee to help develop a Dog-Friendly Area (DFA) for residents of the ward. During a community meeting, July 18, held by King to discuss the matter, Claudine Malik, Project Manager for the Chicago Park District, said during her presentation that the minimum cost to build the dog park infrastructure would range from $150,000 to $200,000, numerous factors further increasing the cost. Most of the community members in attendance seemed interested in having a dog park in the ward but were curious about the lofty cost. It s a great idea, said Karen Phillips, a Hyde Park resident and dog owner about bringing a dog park into the ward. But I don t understand the pricing of it being $150,000 to $200,000. According to the Chicago Park District s website, residents are required to follow a sixstep process in order to build a dog park in a Dog-Friendly Area. Step one, form a committee: Creating a DFA in the Chicago Park District is a grassroots operation. This is a long-term responsibility, which will require community support and dedication and an on- going commitment by all members of the DFA committee. DFA Committees are made up of a minimum of 5 people, and they are entirely voluntary the members are not appointed, Malik said in a written statement. Step two, Identify a proposed DFA location: Residents are required to work with the Park Supervisor and Area Manager to choose the best location. They must confirm with the Park Supervisor that the Chicago Park District owns the specific location. Step three, submit the application: Upon completion of Steps One and Two, the resident s of the ward must submit an application (FORM #1) to the designated department. Step four, identify funding: Residents of the ward must take the initial steps to locate funds that would help develop and operate the DFA. The estimated construction cost of a DFA is $150,000. The DFA Committee is responsible for 100 percent of the cost of development of the DFA and 100 percent of the total project construction cost must be secured prior to the advancement of the design process. Amounts and percentages of the project are subject to change based on the scope of work. After the necessary capital is raised for the dog park, residents are required to proceed to step five and six of the project that is submitting the proposal and construction and design. This completes the final phase of the project. For more information contact the 4th Ward Office at GOLF from page 1 need not to be pushed to the side, said the business owner. Flora Digby, another attendee at the meeting, said, I think many of us are very excited about the change; we d just like to participate in it. Ward Miller, the executive director of Preservation Chicago, a nonprofit that advocates for the preservation of historic architecture, said, We re really concerned about the impact on the Frederick Law Olmsted landscape. Would they do this in Central Park in New York, designed by Olmsted? Would New Yorkers go for this? Miller asked rhetorically. He said he hoped for a commitment to restore all those historic structures from the developers, and also asked about how many trees would be cut down for the new development. In response, Hogan said there was an ongoing tree census, a survey of which of the existing trees were original and which were invasive species. He also said that the development would operate according to a one-to-one tree replacement guideline. And he cited lead design consultant Beau Welling s experience working on an Olmsted-designed property, the Biltmore Estate, to allay concerns that the development would disregard the historic importance of the park design. The goal is to uplift our community, the thousands of people who have left our community: to attract them back, Hairston said of the development. This has never been done in history. The Presidential Center has never been done in an urban setting. Hairston also injected some levity into the discussion. I ve never designed a golf course, as a matter of fact I ve been asked to get off of some golf courses, she said to laughter. I know where my skill set is and where it isn t. I could do some cartwheels on the green but that was years ago.

7 Hyde Park resident wins landmark preservation award By KYLER SUMTER Herald Intern Longtime Hyde Park resident Charles G. Staples has won a Landmarks Illinois Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Joe Antunovich Award for Leadership for his years of dedication to preserving Chicago landmarks. Staples was also recently honored as the longest serving volunteer at the Chicago Cultural Center, according to a May 10 article in the Hyde Park Herald. This was a happy circumstance, it s a prestigious award and they ve been giving these awards annually for quite some years, Staples said. The awards are funded by the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation and administered by Landmarks Illinois. According to Landmarks Illinois Communications Manager Kaitlyn McAvoy, each year nine awards are given out to people, organizations, projects and/or programs that serve as an excellent example of Illinois historic preservation. Recipients of the awards are those that have had large contributions in saving historic places in Illinois. Each winner will be honored at an awards ceremony and receive a $1,000 prize check. Two historic Chicago preservation projects All Saints Episcopal Church, 4550 N. Hermitage St. and Rosenwald Courts, 4600 S. Michigan Ave. will also be honored with awards at Landmark Illinois 2017 Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Awards Ceremony on Saturday, Sept. 16. Richard Miller, founder, first chief executive officer, and chairman emeritus of Landmarks Illinois nominated Staples for the award to give him the recognition he felt he deserved for his continued effort on preservation projects like the Chicago Public Library, which was almost shut down in the 1960s and 70s. The library was built in 1897 and had a Beaux-Arts architectural style that was considered appropriate and effective for grand buildings at the turn of the 20th century. Chuck Staples had been running in effect a one man campaign to bring attention to the Beaux-Arts-style Chicago Public Library, Miller said. That effort that went on for eight years was absolutely extraordinary and it was something that a common man who had an uncommon understanding of historical architecture set out to do on his own and he gradually got more and more support. Staples, who majored in art education but subsequently got a masters degree in social work from the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration and was a professional social worker for the Chicago Schools for 27 years in the inner city South Side at the time, had been writing letters, organizing volunteers and campaigning for the library to remain open for six years before Landmarks Illinois, then known as the Landmark Preservation Council, joined him in his fight in In 1972, the city decided to preserve the building and rehab it for other uses; it is now the Chicago Cultural Center. While Staples was recognized briefly at the time, the narrative emerged that the building was only saved because former Mayor Richard J. Daley s wife Eleanor liked the building. According to Staples, the narrative spread after Daley had an encounter with a Chicago Tribune reporter and mentioned she would hate to see the building torn down. Staples says the city was also very close to naming the building The Eleanor Daley Cultural Center. The city of Chicago told the world for over 40 years that Eleanor Daley was the blessed woman who saved the building, Staples said. [Our] campaign was in its sixth or seventh year, and they put it to her, all these years she never said a thing, she never issued a public statement. This fueled Miller to fight for Staples legacy and the legacy of all those who worked to preserve the library. Miller also sent a letter of protest to the Chicago Architecture Foundation s print publication after they printed the Daley narrative in their pages. That completely discounted and ignored the enormous effort that many people went into following Charles lead in an effort to persuade the city that this building should be saved, Miller said. There were many people in the 60s and 70s who worked selflessly, without reward and often at great personal sacrifice to reverse the attitude that said that a dirty old building, no matter what its architectural merit might be, ought to be torn down and replaced with a new steel and glass box. While the credit for the preservation was being given to Daley, Miller said that Staples was never looking for credit, but to save a treasure. I see Charles as representative of all those individuals who made a huge invisible contribution in the 60s, 70s, 80s to bringing about something that we now take for granted in Chicago because these buildings are considered civic treasures, Miller said. He has never sought particular credit or reward but it was very hard on him for 40 years to have the effort that he had sacrificed eight years of his life to treated as if there was nothing to it and nobody had done anything. Staples credits new Commissioner for the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events Mark Kelly for deciding to put the old story aside after all those years. When award nomination time rolled around, Robie House to host volunteer trainings Hyde Park Resident Charles G. Staples gives a speech during a ceremony, May 3, where he received an award from the city of Chicago for being the longest serving volunteer at the Chicago Cultural Center. members of the Landmarks committee immediately shouted out Staples name and Landmarks President Bonnie McDonald, suggested that Staples would be an appropriate nominee if somebody was willing to nominate him and Miller leapt at the chance to do so. Miller prepared a nomination, a supporting statement, a biography and provided/organized three letters of recommendation from influential people in the preservation realm, August 9, 2017, Hyde Park Herald 7 Photo courtesy of Ward Miller at Preservation Chicago including two architectural historians and a long-time Landmarks Illinois board member. Basically he s the guy without whom, that building would not exist today, Miller said.

Michigan Ave. For more information visit org/ events/ richard- h- driehausfoundation-preservation-awards/.

11 August 9, 2017, Hyde Park Herald 11 Hir RECOMMENDED Where: Steppenwolf Downstairs Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted St. When: through Aug. 20 Tickets: $20-$89 Phone: By ANNE SPISELMAN Theater Critic Taylor Mac s Hir takes the dysfunctional family story, a common theatrical theme, to a whole new level, but what we re supposed to get from it isn t entirely clear. The press release dubs the play a subversive comedy and quotes the playwright, actor, singer-songwriter and performance artist saying judy (his preferred personal pronoun) started it in 1997, wildly inspired by Steppenwolf s production of Sam Shepard s Buried Child on Broadway because of the poetic inquiry into the broken and hidden parts of our culture. Interestingly, the subjects of Mac s inquiry aren t exactly hidden two decades later, and what he makes of them strikes me as a tragedy about the failure of our culture more than a comedy, even if it is bitingly funny and a canny satire of contemporary mores. Mac explodes the nuclear family conventions prevalent in the mid-20th century, roughly the era of the starter house in California s Central Valley where the characters still live. We learn that the father, Arnold (Francis Guinan) who we see in the opening scene looking like a deranged female clown in a multicolored fright wig, garish makeup, and a rumpled nightgown lost his job as a plumber after 33 years to a Chinese- American woman. His anger inflamed, he began beating his wife, Paige (Amy Morton) and daughter, Maxine, even more than before, until he had a stroke. Now Paige is taking her revenge on her brutal husband, who moves spastically and can barely speak. Besides dressing him in a diaper and woman s clothing, she mixes estrogen into the smoothie of his medications to keep him docile, sprays him with a water bottle when he misbehaves as if he were a naughty pet, and humiliates him any way she can. She s also let the household completely disintegrate, so clothing and bedding are scattered and piled all over the place, the kitchen is a disaster area, furniture blocks the front door, and nothing is where it belongs. In addition, the clunky old room air conditioner is going full blast, though Arnold is shivering. (The gasp-worthy scenic design is by Collette Pollard.) Meanwhile, Maxine is transitioning to Max (Em Grosland), to hir (preferred personal pronoun, a cross between him and her, pronounced here ) mother s delight. Sporting a scrappy beard and blue hair, ze (another of hir s preferred personal pronouns) also is a know-it-all teenager, quick to spout halfbaked opinions and assert that ze is educating mom rather than the other way around. Older son Isaac (Ty Olwin) enters this maelstrom, returning from three years overseas in the military, where he worked in Mortuary Affairs collecting body parts and sending them home out of respect for the deceased and their families. Dishonorably discharged for a drug offense, and probably suffering from PTSD (though he denies it), he s desperate to be back in his own home until he sees what s happened to it and is horrified. Isaac tries to re-establish some order, beginning by yanking off Arnold s wig and trying to remove his makeup. He doesn t have that much trouble adjusting to Max s new persona, though ze initially is testy and confrontational, but he and Paige soon are at loggerheads. Paige, who is proud of having gotten a job at a not-for-profit, is head of the household now and wants Isaac to do what she says. He wants her to treat Arnold like a human being even if he was abusive, and he longs for the security of the home he left. Their battle of the wills escalates, and we know it won t end well. The wonder is that we care at all about any of these characters, who are impossibly far from any definition of normal and not at all nice. But we do, at least a little, thanks to Mac s smart writing, Hallie Gordon s sensitive direction, and the first-rate performances. Amy Morton is brilliant as Paige. She exudes an air of calm, even serenity, as she is saying an doing the most outrageous, monstrous things and assuring Isaac that she s not insane. As she repeatedly tells him that the condition of the house doesn t matter, that nothing matters, or gleefully talks about paradigm shifts, or occasionally lashes out angrily at his or Arnold s disobedience, we have the growing sense that this is a woman who will never really recover from the abuse she suffered and is in a state of despair. Despair also infects Olwin s troubled but sympathetic Isaac, who tries but fails to reshape the reality in front of him until Paige pushes him to an act of rage. Even Arnold, half comprehending and out-of-it as he is, despairs, as his attempts to escape and outburst when Paige isn t around suggest. Guinan is stunning in a role that requires him, literally and metaphorically, to let it all hang out. The only one for whom there s a ray of hope is Max, arguably Mac s stand-in. Ze goes from being a bratty kid to a confused young adult unsure of almost everything, and coming out from under Paige s thumb, becomes capable of an act of compassion. Maybe this means that Mac believes compassion can save the family and the world but I m not sure. What is certain, though, is that Hir is worth seeing, even if you end up not liking it. Some section, in fact, are priceless, including the discussion of gender visa-vis Noah s Arc and the way Guinan s Arnold tries to defy Morton s Paige over that air conditioner. Applause, too, for all the designers. Hyde Park Chamber seeks to acquire national grant By JOSEPH PHILLIPS The Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the Hyde Park Historical Society was nominated as one of 25 national grant recipients to help preserve and restore historical landmarks within their communities. SSA to review service provider letters of interest Special Service Area #61 (SSA #61), also known as Downtown Hyde Park, announced that commissioners will meet at 7 p.m., Aug. 16, in the lobby of the Hyde Park Bank Building, 1525 E. 53rd St., to review letters of interest submitted by nonprofit organizations, who would like to operate as the SSA #61 Service Provider Agency. SSA #61 Chairman Michael McGarry said in a previous interview with the Herald that the SSA is not disgruntled with its current service provider, the South East Chicago Commission, but it wants to be more open and look into other organizations that have shown interest in becoming the SSA #61 Service Provider Agency. Downtown Hyde Park has an annual operating budget of approximately $265,000, collected from property taxes on real estate within the SSA footprint (53rd Street, Lake Park Avenue, and 55th Street between Harper and Hyde Park avenues). SSA #61 uses some of those funds for programs including sidewalk cleanings, tree replacement and all of the bike racks that have been added to Hyde Park in the last few years. They also provide money and sponsor popular events like the 4th on 53rd Parade and the Silver Room Block Party. Organizations can request specific information guidelines by contacting SSA #61 Vice Chairman George Rumsey at or All requested information including an audited financial statement, a summary of organizational experience and corporate structure, history of According to Wallace Goode, executive director of the Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce, the grant will be used to support the restoration of the Hyde Park Cable Car Building, 5529 S. Lake Park Ave. The Chamber was required to write a national grant proposal on behalf of the Hyde Park Historical Society, Goode said about his group qualifying for the national grant. By writing the grant we are now eligible to participate in a voting campaign for funds on a national level. The group will be a part of an online voting process that will determine funds from a donor to help support neighborhood projects. Although the donors, who have chosen to remain anonymous, will not announce the winners of the grant until late next week, Goode said it would be a great opportunity for Hyde Park residents to participate in a national voting campaign. We submitted the grant back on July 9 to be considered as part of a voting campaign to help better preserve the historical Hyde Park Cable Building, Goode said. We really need Hyde Park residents to get out and vote. For more information on how to participate in the voting process call Goode at contract administration and project management, and a sample SSA budget for 2018 (using the city s template) must be received by the Special Service Area #61 Chairman Michael McGarry before noon on Friday, Aug. 11. Hyde Park man s death ruled as accidental overdose By TONIA HILL The cause of death for a Hyde Park man that was found dead in an apartment on the 1200 Block of East 53rd Street has been ruled an accident, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner s Office. In late April, Emergency responders were ispatched to 25-year-old Zachary Padove s apartment building. Pardove was found unresponsive in his room. There were materials found in Pardove s apartment that were of concern, said Larry Langford, spokesman for the Chicago Fire Department, which caused fire crews to issue a Level I hazardous material response. The response was soon upgraded to a Level II response. About half a dozen residents in the building were evacuated. Langford said previously, there was not any danger to the community. The County Medical Examiner s office, on Monday, July 31, ruled Padove s death as an accidental overdose from a combination of drugs. Several news outlets at the time reported that the incident may have been meth-related. But at the time Padove s father Bill Padove said the odor that alarmed emergency responders, was likely the smell from kombucha. Padove liked to make fermented drinks said Bill Padove, in a previous article in the Herald. He would bring in kombucha, which is a fermented tea. Family, neighbors, and coworkers were not pleased with the immediate adverse accusa- See OVERDOSE on page 14

13 Rauner vetoes school funding bill By TONIA HILL Gov. Bruce Rauner, on Tuesday, Aug. 1, vetoed a portion of Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), a school funding reform bill that would alter the way money is distributed to schools statewide. Rauner s veto specifically takes away a $250 million block grant that Chicago Public Schools (CPS) receives. This is not about taking resources away from Chicago, Rauner said. This is about making historic changes to help poor children in Chicago and throughout the state of Illinois. Joy Clendenning Hyde Park resident, CPS parent, and education activist, said the governor s veto is resetting a bipartisan agreement which would have finally started to equitably fund schools throughout the state of Illinois. Other changes by Rauner regarding CPS include removing both Chicago Public Schools pension considerations from the formula: the normal cost pick-up and the unfunded liability deduction. The fifth change will reintegrate the normal cost pickup for Chicago Public Schools into the Pension Code where it belongs. Rauner, last week called state lawmakers back to Springfield for a special session to discuss SB1 he said previously that state Democrats had been holding the bill since both chambers approved the measure on May 31. CPS $2.281 billion budget relies on SB1. The monies would go toward current and past due pension payments. Rauner said on the record that SB1 was a bailout for CPS. Rauner, on Tuesday, said that the SB1 places the burden of the Chicago Public Schools broken teacher pension system on our rural and suburban school districts. In a previous article in the Herald, CPS Chief Executive Officer Forrest Claypool said the governor is holding children across the state hostage as bargaining chips for his political agenda but we won t let Chicago children be used as pawns in his game. Mayor Rahm Emanuel issued a statement Tuesday morning on Rauner s actions. He said the governor is ignoring the needs of Illinois school children, the desires of school superintendents across the state, the voices of newspaper editorials across the state, and the recommendations of his own education funding commission. Emanuel added that [Rauner s] math is fuzzy, his claims have been proven false and the only thing the governor s action advances is his own personal brand of cynical politics. The Chicago Teacher s Union, on Tuesday, said instead of demanding that the wealthy pay their fair share to equitably resource schools throughout the state and expanding the public sector, governor 1% fans the flames of regionalism to pit the schoolchildren of Chicago against those in other parts of the state. Meanwhile, Chicago s mayor 1% says CPS will fall short of its budget goals even if the state legislature overrides Rauner s SB1 veto. SB1 would use an evidence-based model to define an adequate level of school funding for each district and a formula for distributing state funds to districts. The state s recently approved $36 billion budget includes an additional $350 million for kindergarten through 12th-grade classrooms. A section of the state budget would prevent See SCHOOL on page 14 Chamber Check - In August 9, 2017, Hyde Park Herald 13 Betty Virginia Holcomb of Nova Driving School, Kimberly Olgesby, and Deborah Hart, CEO of Montgomery Place mingle during the Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce s monthly Chamber Check-In event Thursday evening, Aug. 3, at Montgomery Place, 5550 S.

14 14 Hyde Park Herald, August 9, 2017 A fine night of Spanish music under the stars By M.L. RANTALA Classical Music Critic Pablo Sáinz Villegas is a Spaniard who readily took to the guitar. He began lessons at age six and offered his first public performance only a year later. As an adult, he remains close to children: he has performed for thousands of kids as well as established music programs and community music activities for young people all over the world. He won the Segovia Award at age 15 and since then has accumulated more than two dozen other prizes. Last week he made his Grant Park Music Festival debut at the Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park. The guitarist took on Joaquín Rodrigo s Fantasia para un Gentilhombre and left the audience wanting more. Rodrigo, blind from the age of three, wrote the Fantasia, as he wrote all his composi- Religious tions, using a Braille music typewriter. The Gentilhombre of the title is Andrés Segovia, one of the most revered guitarists of the 20th century, and the person for whom Rodrigo composed the piece. Pablo Sáinz Villegas showed off his skill and musicality with his performance. From the beginning, he and the Grant Park Orchestra led by Carlos Kalmar, had an easy communication as the music shifted back and forth from soloist to ensemble. The dialogue between the two was always clear and had beautiful flow. The guitarist was articulate and crisp and produced a well-rounded sound. He was dexterous in the complex passages and had captivating dynamics, easily shifting from a hushed sound to a glorious fortissimo. Kalmar coaxed lovely music from the orchestra, who gave the soloist their full support. The performance was so well received that Pablo Sáinz Villegas offered an encore: Gran Jota by Francisco Tarrega. This was charming, exciting, and thoroughly enjoyable.

Written when Arriga was only 13, the work is not deep but has many pleasing ideas. Kalmar drew out the joy of the piece, investing it with vigorous pacing and pleasing orchestral balance. It was good, fluffy fun. Kalmar and the orchestra then gave a fullthroated performance of the Suite from Carmen by Georges Bizet. Many suites based on opera often fail to fully excite the listener primarily because so much of the music is meant to be sung. But this suite gives the orchestra lots of sizzle and the entrancing music shines fully, though lacking a vocal component. Even without words, the spectacular music, invested fully with color by the orchestra, had you imagining Carmen in seductive dances and the toreador engaged in masculine swagger. The heat of the Spanish sun was evident as was the moonlit romanticism. Kalmar knew when to make the music brisk and punchy and when to emphasize the underlying pulses. The entire orchestra sounded splendid and there was particularly haunting The Chicago Police Department is giving notice to residents in the Hyde Park about five car thefts that have occurred since mid-july. The most recent theft took place on 1500 Block of E. 55th Street on Saturday, Aug. 5 between 3:15 p.m. and 6 p.m. A second car was stolen this month between Thursday, Aug. 3 and Friday, Aug. 4 on the 5500 Block of S. Lake Park Avenue between the hours of 10:30 p.m. and 7:58 a.m. Three cars were stolen in mid-july and two of the thefts happened on Tuesday, July 18. The first between 9 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. on the 5400 Block of S. Hyde Park Boulevard and OVERDOSE from page 11 tions about the cause of Padove s death. They wanted the community to know about Padove as a Hyde Park resident and colleague. Padove who was an only child, was born on Oct. 22, He was inquisitive as a child, said his father Bill Padove. He always had to figure out how something worked, Bill Padove said. He was his own person. He didn t try to follow any trend. He was himself and very comfortable with that. He attended Murray Language Academy, 5335 S. Kenwood Ave., and graduated from Kenwood Academy High School 5015 S. Blackstone Ave., in Padove worked at the Hyde Park Animal work from the flute. Grandeur and tragedy combined to make for a satisfying performance. The concert, which was performed without intermission, closed with the Danzas Fantásticas by Joaquin Turina. The evening s final look at Spain was mostly interesting, even though this was the least intriguing music on the program. Kalmar worked hard, however, to make the sounds interesting. The work s three movements draw on the poetry of José Más and the orchestra was effective in achieving dancelike fluidity, all leading up to a big, exciting conclusion. The Grant Park Music Festival is nearing its conclusion. The final concerts of the season take place on Fri., Aug. 18 at 6:30 and Sat., Aug. 19 at 7:30 at the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park with performances of Beethoven s Ninth Symphony. The soloists will be Janai Brugger, soprano, Allyson McHardy, mezzo, Brendan Tuohy, tenor, and Russell Braun, bass. For more information, visit grantparkmusicfestival.com. CPD issues alert on car thefts By TONIA HILL SCHOOL from page 13 schools from receiving funds from the state without the new funding formula in place. Some schools in districts across the state run the risk of not opening on time this school year without a funding formula in place. It is Governor Rauner who vetoed an education funding bill that would bring more equity and fairness to our schools for the first time in decades, because he only agrees with 90 percent of it, said Illinois Federation of Teachers President Dan Montgomery in a written statement. Yes, it is disappointing that our children s futures have become divi- the second between the hours of 2:30 p.m. and 4:55 p.m. on the 5400 Block of S. Cornell Avenue. The third car theft from last month happened on Wednesday, July 19 on the 5500 Block of S. Cornell Avenue at 9 a.m. Police are asking residents to pay special attention to any suspicious people loitering in the area, to not leave car keys in the vehicle and to Call 911 immediately to provide a detailed description of the offender(s) including any vehicle description and license plate information. Anyone with information is being asked to Contact the Bureau of Detectives, Area Central at Clinic, 1363 E. 53rd St., while he was in high school and once he graduated he worked at the shelter for several years and was sweet and kind, according to Natalie Casey who worked alongside Padove at the clinic for three years. One of the last conversations that Bill Padove had with his son was over the phone. Bill Padove said his son had just received a phone call about an interview for a job that he was interested in. It was a similar to his previous position at the clinic, but it was a bit more advanced. He was so excited, Bill Padove said. His other interests included home brewing, fermentation, and distilling, according to his father. Padove had worked at the clinic since 2008 but left for personal reasons a few months ago. sive, but it is the governor himself playing politics with their first day of school. CPS officials maintain that schools will open on time this year despite uncertainty in Springfield. I feel this strong solidarity with parents in Republican districts in downstate Illinois who already do not have what they need to provide quality education for their kids, and now that s being even more threatened by this governor, Clendenning said. SB1 is now in the hands of state lawmakers who must vote to accept the governor s changes to the bill or override it.
