  • George LeClaire/gleclaire@dailyherald.comA few weeks before Christmas I was privileged to be assigned to photograph an all day extravaganza called Operation North Pole, for children who suffer from terminal or life-threatening illnesses. I photographed volunteers including Ali Lidbury of Barrington, center left, dancing with four-year old Justice Stephens of Lombard under colorful strobe lighting at the Donald E. Stephens Rosemont Convention and Banquet Center on Saturday, December 7. Seeing the joy on the children's faces as they leaped and spun around as they danced reminded me that volunteering time is often equal to or better than donating items or money.

  • John Starks/jstarks@dailyherald.comElgin mail carrier Michael Paulus climbs a three-foot pile of frozen snow on his delivery route on Chicago Street Monday during the sub-zero temperatures.
