New Dist. 300 superintendent was an early favorite for the job.

Eight Jacobs High School students caught horsing around last week on a homemade Slip 'N Slide as a senior prank, must write a letter to school administrators promising to behave at graduation. Only then will school officials determine whether they get to walk Saturday with the Class of 2014.

A judge set bail at $1 million Monday for a 34-year-old Elgin parolee involved in a crash last week that killed a Carpentersville man. Steven Luellen faces up to 14 years in prison if convicted of aggravated DUI in causing the death of Miguel Agustin Tellez, 35, as Luellen fled police last week. Luellen's female passenger also was injured in the crash.
