Frankie is a 12-week-old male black shorthair. His street name is Frankie the Firecracker, and he was discovered as a stray in Frankfort. He can often be found running, eating, snuggling, looking out the window and sleeping. Because he is currently in foster care with other kittens, he would enjoy having a friend to run with.

Three men, one juvenile charged in string of burglaries

Three men and one juvenile reportedly were apprehended near the Village Commons the morning of Jan. 15 in connection with a string of burglaries in New Lenox and neighboring communities.

A public works employee who was plowing the streets observed the four checking on cars around 4 a.m. near Old Plank Trail Community Bank and called the police, according to New Lenox Police Deputy Chief Louis Alessandrini. When authorities responded to the area, all four fled, he said.

Emily Schrader may be a sophomore and with that only a second-year member of the Eagles’ girls bowling squad, but in that short time she has garnered plenty of attention for her work on the lanes.

And that attention was enough to help her earn the most votes in 22nd Century Media Southwest’s first Athlete of the Month competition of 2016.

The Athlete of the Month competition pits featured Athlete of the Week selections from our south suburban newspapers against one another in an online voting competition.

Last week, I stopped by Hickory Creek Middle School to watch the students’ dress rehearsal of their “Beauty and the Beast” musical, which they performed Friday, May 17, through Sunday, May 19. I enjoyed seeing all of the great costumes and listening to the classic Disney songs I grew up with, but what I most appreciated was watching the young performers find their confidence onstage. It was clear many of the students had a deep passion for music and theater, and I applaud Hickory Creek for creating such a great opportunity for its students for nearly two dozen years.
