Bryan Jurgovan has always loved fishing.

It was a passion that began when the Frankfort Square resident was a young boy growing up in Posen. He would accompany his father, Ron, and his brother Kevin out to the lake, and when he became a father, he continued the tradition with his own children.

A strong focus on building relationships within the community is what drives this eatery serving Mexican fare in Lockport.

According to Taco Patio co-owner and restaurant manager Nasia Katris, unlike a franchise, “Our priority isn’t to make money.”

“Growing up in the restaurant business, I know from personal experience that a family-owned business has an advantage, because you’re going to have the family there,” she said. “If there’s a personal touch, they’re more in touch with the community or the needs of people. That’s the priority with us.”

If things went according to plan, senior Allie Reis would have set a PR in the all-around and Lincoln-Way co-op would have qualified for state for the fourth straight season during the Hinsdale Central sectional on Feb. 11.

They did not, however. Reis, a senior, was unable to compete due to injury and Lincoln-Way did not advance, finishing in second place with a 141.975 and not earning enough points to qualify for state via an at-large berth.
