There was some clean up needed but no injuries as state Sen. Melinda Bush and Lake County Board member Pat Carey dueled in a five-minute shopping spree to help local food banks during the the 15th annual Race for Hunger sponsored by the Lake County Farm Bureau. Together, the pair netted more than $2,600 in goods for the Northern Illinois Food Bank and the Avon Township pantry, although Bush gathered substantially more. "Who knew I was such a shopper?" she said.
