Beth Hart does not know what it’s like to sleep in. “I’ve just always been an early riser. I get up early,” Hart said Tuesday morning, five hours after rolling out of bed at 4:30 a.m. “It’s a 24/7 job,” she said of overseeing the school at 99th Street and Kedzie Avenue.
But come June, Hart will call it career after 35 years in education as both a teacher and administrator.

I get a lot of e-mails from all over the world and few make me laugh. 
But my favorite press release so far... ”The Ugliest Garage Contest of 2014 sought to identify the ugliest garage in the Chicago region and nationwide, and is pleased to announce the winner,’’ And the winner is? “A homeowner from Glen Ellyn, Ill.’’ Wait. No name?

Are you ready for this? September is National Preparedness Month. Sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), National Preparedness Month seeks to educate Americans on preparing for natural disasters and other types of emergencies. But you’ll also need to prepare for unexpected events in many other areas of your life — particularly those events related to the financial security of you and your family.

Colleen Kisel knew she could  not spare her son the fear and pain of cancer treatment. Desperate to intervene in any way, she thought: Give him something, a little source of comfort, to divert his attention.

Usually I like to write about the good things our paper does. I like patting ourselves on the back when we win awards or when people praise our work. But this is not one of those columns. This is a piece about some of the dumb things that can happen when running a newspaper.  Mistakes.

Stagg math teacher John Daniels came to school Monday and found out the bad news that one of his former geometry students, Amy Reed, was killed in a motorcycle accident in Joliet the night before.
His day was about to get worse.

I’ve read numerous articles about achieving energy and would guess I’ve tried it all. Some work, some don’t.

Nearly a decade has passed since George Lutz retired as Palos Hills’ public works commissioner, putting an end to a 25-year career with the city. But the man Mayor Gerald Bennett described as a “true professional” is anything but forgotten, even if Lutz now calls Burr Ridge home and health problems have limited his trips back to Palos Hills.

It’s been nearly five years since Yellow Freight abandoned its truck terminal in Chicago Ridge. It left the 75-acre area with what village officials have publicly called an “eyesore’’ at 103rd Street and Harlem Avenue.
