CN100 Game of the Week preview: Catholic League Championship - Brother Rice vs. Loyola Academy

CHICAGO – The one advantage enjoyed by teams in the Chicago Catholic League and the Chicago Public League is that if their season in the IHSA playoffs ends, it doesn’t necessarily spell the end of their seasons.

CHICAGO – The one advantage enjoyed by teams in the Chicago Catholic League and the Chicago Public League is that if their season in the IHSA playoffs ends, it doesn’t necessarily spell the end of their seasons.
With the Prep Bowl, a Chicago tradition for decades looming around Thanksgiving, seasons are extended for the lucky few. Brother Rice and Loyola find themselves in that position Friday at 7 p.m. in the Chicago Catholic League Championship. The game will be broadcast by CN100 at Noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22, and 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 24. You can also find the game throughout Chicagoland with Xfinity On Demand.
The winner will face either Curie or Hubbard in the Prep Bowl next week.
Brother Rice (7-4) recovered from a 24-21 loss to defending Class 8A state champion Naperville Central in the first round of the IHSA playoffs with a 41-0 win over DePaul Prep to advance to this game. The Crusaders beat Loyola 16-13 in the first meeting.
Senior QB Alex Alarcon is a two-way threat offensively, passing for 2,294 yards, 18 TDs and 10 INTs. He’s also rushed for 651 yards and nine scores. His top target in the pass game is sophomore Ricky Smalling (64 catches, 880 yards, 9 TD).
Loyola (9-3) also drew a tough IHSA playoff route, falling to the state’s top team, Stevenson 24-21 in the second round. A second win over St. Rita 31-3 put the Ramblers in the Catholic League title game.
Passing duties have been split three ways, but senior DJ Melsheimer is expected to start Friday. He’ll be looking for seniors Owen Buscaglia (56 catches, 789 yards, 11 TD) and Spencer Cecola (37 catches, 469 yards, 6 TD).
The backbone of the Ramblers’ offense comes on the ground. Junior Dara Laja leads the way with 923 yards and 5 TDs.

Opt out of ComEd smart meter

Just wanted to bring attention to the ComEd smart meter opt out program. They keep the option pretty well hidden unless you search for it on your own. I'm unfortunately going thru the process of having one installed as I type.

Just wanted to bring attention to the ComEd smart meter opt out program. They keep the option pretty well hidden unless you search for it on your own. I'm unfortunately going thru the process of having one installed as I type. Only now have I even known about the possibility of opting out by being so upset with the project that's been going on that I started looking up online info about the smart meter itself. They are installing it on the front face of my house so I wanted to see how much it would stand out so I was looking up images of them online. Then I came across the info on opting out. Of course it'll cost over $20 a month to do and supposedly by 2019 you won't have a choice. But things could change in that time if they see enough people having reservations about it. I started getting letters about needing to set up an appointment to have them come inside to plan for the change. Within a couple weeks of the first letter came another letter saying my power would be cut if I did not schedule an appointment soon. Never did any letter I received mention that there was an option to opt out. When I called to complain about that fact, way too late in the process by the way, the woman on the phone was so curious as to how I found out about the option of opting out. They are trying to keep it as hush hush as possible and aren't giving up info freely. Hopefully if you decide to get it where you live they won't be ruining your last couple months of summer tearing up the streets early in the morn & digging up your property so late in the season that cleaning it up will be a hassle in the time constraints of upcoming bad weather. Hopefully it won't be during Halloween so that the kids have dangerous obstacles and are completely prevented from using the sidewalk. I've just described my experience. If people would like to add the dangers and concerns to having smart meters I would love to hear opinions about that. So I big trick from ComEd on Halloween and in general.

    In any case, the point I was trying to make related to one of the concerns you raised - that a smart meter would allow the utility to simply push a few buttons at some remote location that would shut off or partially curtail the electrical service to a particular household, or group of neighboring households, for reasons other than non-payment. Personally, I hope the smart meters do provide the utility with such capability.

    Right now, there is a device on my central air conditioning unit that allows Com Ed to shut the unit off in two hour increments on hot summer days during periods when the total demand for electricity begins to approach the power grid's capacity. I get a credit on my monthly bill during the summer for giving Com Ed that option. In my opinion, a controlled rolling blackout of short duration, implemented on a block by block basis, is vastly to be preferred over an uncontrolled blackout that takes out power to fifteen million homes for ten days. I know from personal experience how unpleasant a general blackout can be because I survived two of them when I lived on the East Coast.

    Com Ed sold off all its power plants some time ago and no longer generates any of its own power. It has to buy its power from other companies, just like most of the alternative suppliers do. So when I suggested that you consider buying electricity from someone other than Com Ed, my thought process was that if more consumers obtained their electricity from competing suppliers, and those suppliers had contracts with a greater variety of power generating companies (including renewable energy producers,) the multitude of sources would result in a more robust and reliable electrical grid.

  • Carol R A concerned Mom & citizen.

    So, I've crawled all thru the comed site and could not find how to opt out of the smart meter install. How do you do it exactly? Frustrating.

Realtor Recommendation

Hi, Im looking for a local realtor recommendation. We are looking for someone who can aggressively help us find our new home in the Beverly/Mount Greenwood area. Someone who is a top notch negotiator. Prefer someone who has been in the area a long time, we just find the history to be a bonus... and of course who will understand our needs. We are ready to buy ASAP and just can't find the right fit.

  • Pick up a copy of the Beverly Review at County Fair on Western Avenue or Top Notch Hamburgers on 95th Street. The back pages of the Review, which is published weekly, are filled with ads from several local realtors who have been doing business in this area for decades. People have told me you can't go wrong with either Nancy Hotchkiss from Biros Real Estate or Bernadette Molloy from Molloy & Associates. Good luck!

  • Kathleen Coyle specializes in the Beverly area. She knows her stuff, has great followup and is very well-connected in the area.http://www.realtor.com/realestateagents/Kathleen-Coyle_Chicago_IL_1660855_246014936?source=web

I am curious...what's happening?...new business ventures!

I haven't read anything in the Beverly Review or on EveryBlock about the construction/renovation going on at the old Munro Landscaping location on the northeast corner of 101st and Western.

Also do you know what businesses are going into the new building being constructed in the Evergreen Marketplace Mall at 91st & Western?

When are the leases up for Panera, Chipotle, Chase, and the other businesses located in the strip mall on 95th between Claremont & Bell.

When are the leases up for Panera, Chipotle, Chase, and the other businesses located in the strip mall on 95th between Claremont & Bell.

One more question....I heard two brothers from Beverly own the new pub, Porter & Cullens at 3541 W 99th, (formally A & J Meats in Evergreen Park, 99th & Clifton Pk).
I recall Evergreen Park being opposed to and then suing the RSM regarding the building of a residence for retired religious on 99th St., two of the issues were 1.the building was not being used for education and 2. it would bring traffic congestion to a quiet residental area. Is this the same village that issued a liquor license to a location down the block from three schools?....and is allowing the EP grammar school to agree that their parking lot can be used by the patrons of the pub. Is any or all of this true?

  • Cindy Many year resident of Mt. Greenwood

    Too bad about another pay day loan business. Zandra thanks for your intention to contact the alderman about notifications of new business proposals. Surely, a corner location on Western Avenue would be great for many small businesses. The Beverly and Mt. Greenwood neighborhoods need to educate people about how to get financing and how to plan for a new business. With all of the really successful people in these neighborhoods, couldn't the BPA get a group together?

  • Outbuildings at 91st and Western to include: "Hair Cuttery, Vitamin World, Casual Male XL"

NAPERVILLE – The road to a second straight Class 8A state championship starts on a difficult note for Naperville Central.
The Redhawks welcome a team that may be more battle tested than any in the state in Brother Rice. The 7:30 p.m. Friday kickoff will be broadcast by CN100 at Noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 1, and at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 3. You can also find the game throughout Chicagoland with Xfinity On Demand.
“We played one of the toughest schedules in the state, most likely in the Midwest,” Brother Rice coach Brian Badke said.
Brother Rice (6-3) was co-champion in the rugged Chicago Catholic Blue, with losses to Providence in Week 8 and to two teams outside of Illinois.
“Their players will be battle tested from the tough schedule they play,” Central coach Mike Stine said.
Central's seven-game win streak was snapped by a desperate Wheaton Warrenville South team last week.
Central rode senior running back Kevin Clifford, who had 1,243 yards and nine touchdowns rushing. Junior quarterback Conor Joyce passed for 879 yards and two touchdowns, adding four rushing touchdowns.
Brother Rice boasts the Catholic Blue co-Offensive Player of the Year, senior Marcus Jones. He ran for 752 yards and 13 touchdowns, while adding 26 catches for 464 yards and four TDs.
Senior quarterback Alex Alarcon registered a dynamic season, throwing for 1,961 yards and 16 touchdowns. He added 529 yards and seven scores rushing. His top target is sophomore receiver Ricky Smalling (56 catches, 830 yards, nine touchdowns). He also spreads the ball to junior Julian Blain and senior Zach Hayes on the outside.
“I would say they will be the best team we have faced this season,” Stine said.
Junior DB Jordan Boyd leads the team with 65 tackles and three interceptions. Senior defensive lineman has 47 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and three sacks. Senior linebacker Jim Opoka contributed 54 tackles.
“They are physical up front and they have great athletes in the secondary,” Stine said.
