Only a few weeks left of the summer. School starts between Aug. 16-21 for most children in New Lenox and surrounding suburbs.
In the three-to-four weeks before school starts, many of the kids and parents of school-age children begin to get excited. Elementary students may or may not yet know who their teachers will be, but for those that do they've no doubt heard the news from friends or perhaps older siblings. This teacher or that teacher is "awesome, easy or tough." They know which building they'll be spending the bulk of their day. They have in-hand the school supply list. If it has been misplaced, the stores in town, including the Walmart on Route 30, have supply lists from every school in New Lenox and surrounding communities. But when exactly does school begin? While it seems to start earlier every year, it's not really the case. For more than 10 years …

School Board meeting highlights: Destination Excellence awards, closing the fiscal year, public hearing for proposed 2012-2013 budget
The Lincoln-Way School District 210 Board of Education discussed its 2012-13 budget Thursday, closing the previous year with a $3.2 million deficit. The main order of business was the closing of the district's 2011-2012 budget and the passage of a resolution to display the proposed 2012-2013 budget for public inspection through Sept. 11, followed by a public hearing. The board will vote on the approval of the budget on Sept. 13. The district closed its 2011-2012 budget with a deficit of $3,274,621 as of June 30. Supt. Lawrence Wyllie said the deficit was caused by a discrepancy between the amount of tax dollars and categorical grants the district was supposed to receive and the amount that was actually dispersed. "The categoricals, we …

Phoenix 64, Warriors 47. Lincoln-Way North's Daryle Morgan led the way with 19 points and 14 rebounds while Lincoln-Way West struggled to find its outside shot.
Facing an 11-point deficit at the half, Lincoln-Way West got the road crowd roaring with an 8-2 run Friday in a cross-district rivalry game against Lincoln-Way North. That was the closest the Warriors would get, though, as the Daryle Morgan-led Phoenix pulled away late in the game to win 64-47. The excitement of the rivalry made the game feel closer than it was, with both student sections cheering loudly. The shorter Warriors, whose tallest player is 6-foot-3, had trouble scoring inside and instead relied on its 3-point shot. But even with many open looks, West couldn't find its stroke, going 5-for-31 from behind the arc. Morgan electrified the crowd with his stellar play, including a few slam dunks and harassing defense. Hayden Witt tried…

Lincoln-Way North 7, Lincoln-Way West 3: Phoenix capitalize on one of five Warriors turnovers for game's only TD, hold on for Homecoming victory.
Breaking It Down: Lincoln-Way West (3-2, 2-1) gave the ball away time and time again during Friday night's Southwest Suburban Red Conference contest against Lincoln-Way North (3-2, 1-2) in Frankfort. The Warriors fumbled eight times—losing four—during a game that was played in a steady rain for most of the evening. They also were intercepted once. Even so, Lincoln-Way West was able to stay within striking distance. Lincoln-Way North scored what proved to be the game-winning touchdown with 11:39 remaining in the second quarter when running back Tre Lewis looked to pass, slipped a bit and ended up running for a 6-yard touchdown. Lincoln-Way West made it 7-3 on a 34-yard field goal by Cole Lukanus with 5:04 left in the game, but turned the …
Patch looks at upcoming prep football match-ups by rating how their mascots would fare in a no-holds-barred duel.
Welcome to the second Mascot Wars, where we look at upcoming prep football match-ups by determining how their mascots would fare in a no-holds-barred duel. Today, we’re looking at the Lincoln-Way North Phoenix and the Lincoln-Way West Warriors, due to face off tonight at 7 p.m. at North. Nothing from Harry Potter counts. Sorry, kids, but if we’re already pitting a bird that never existed against the general concept of someone who makes war, we don’t want to confuse it more by talking about healing tears or hot feathers or anything else from the brain of J.K. Rowling. We’re going with the much more accurate source of Wikipedia, which tells us the phoenix is a sacred firebird from many ancient mythologies and OMG SLAYER RULEZ HAHAHAHA!!!! […

Tone deaf and squinting into the sun, New Lenox Patch editor Michael Sewall sings the Phoenix fight song after the Central Knights lost 26-18 in Friday night's football game.
For a moment Friday night, I relaxed my vocal chords and thought This is happening. I won't have to sing. I made a bet with Frankfort Patch editor Joe Vince last week, a friendly wager on the football game between Lincoln-Way Central and Lincoln-Way North. It was pretty simple: If your town's team lost the game, you would sing the winner's fight song somewhere public in your town. And when Central was down 19-0 in the first half Friday night, my mind drifted to what I'd wear on camera. Then the Knights scored 18 unanswered points to pull within one, and I had a glimmer of hope. In the end, the Phoenix won 26-18, and I had to hold up my end of the bargain, unfortunately delivering a gem that could be a track on William Hung's next album. …
