Shorewood grad's improbable journey is movie-worthy.
Follow along as we retrace the Bohemian soccer path of young Tim Lancina, a Shorewood High School graduate whose story evokes the feel — if not the scope — of another Wisconsin footballing iconoclast, Jay DeMerit. The new movie "Rise and Shine" chronicles DeMerit’s success. Lancina might never see his story on film, but believe him when he says, “It’s been a crazy, crazy ride.” Skilled and supremely confident, Lancina scored 40 goals in four varsity seasons, the last three playing for SHS coach Aron Gentry. “He had a great understanding of the game. He always thought that his ability was greater than others, and it usually was,” Gentry says. “He put in the time to have that confidence.” Most remarkable, perhaps, was his senior year. Moved …

The approximately $500,000 project includes two softball fields and a youth soccer field.
Playground renovations at Lake Bluff Elementary will start July 5 and wrap up in early fall. The Shorewood School Board last week approved the approximately $493,000 project and a contract with New Berlin-based contractor, Western Contractors, to revamp the school’s field.

Superintendent Blane McCann said rainfall often leaves the fields usable and that the new construction will address the issue with a drainage system. McCann said the project will be great for Lake Bluff and the community. The Village Board agreed to pay a portion of the athletic field upgrades in March, contributing about $…
