When a team has two or more superstar athletes on their team, you’d think it’s a gift. Two times the talent, two times the performance! But sometimes, the addition of another star player can cause problems. It’s not an uncommon occurrence, especially in basketball. A team will have their “designated”...

We’ve heard it all too many times, the number of things that adults tell us we can’t do because “we’re too young.” Many teenagers look forward to the day they turn 21, mainly because the window of opportunities has opened, bringing in a wide spectrum of possibilities. For now, though, most...

Growing up in Frankfurt, my childhood was a blur of Kinder eggs and Haribo gummy bears. But my favorite of all German snacks was the milk slice.

One hundred and seven years. The longest streak any North American sports team has gone without a championship win, and this embarrassing dry spell is sadly owned by our hometown team, the Chicago Cubs. But to our, and the world’s surprise, the Cubs had managed to make their first playoff appearance...

With autumn inching nearer, the community has witnessed a wide range of losses. It’s difficult to think that within the past month, we have received a tornado touchdown, lost two members of the North community, and said goodbye to a police officer in Fox Lake.

The crowd silenced as Merrick Gentile hobbled off the field, holding his knee and wincing in pain. It was only a scrimmage set to prepare the team for both the upcoming Lakes game and the season ahead. Gentile was only scheduled to throw a few passes in fear of getting hurt.

Almost any cookie recipe you look at, the first step is always the same: cream together butter and sugar. At first it seems pretty simple, just mix the butter and sugar together until the mixture looks good enough, but leave it too long and the butter dissolves into a sticky mess making your cookies...

In all honesty, it is an understatement to say that it’s insane to me that my journey is coming to an end. I will no longer be a high school student. I will no longer wake up every morning and walk through the doors of Grayslake North High School. Most importantly, I will no longer have the privil...
