  • ESHOF to honor Nemmers with Lifetime Achievement Award Oct 30, 2014 9:07 PM
    There’s that adage that when one door closes, another opens. In the case of retired Elgin High School Principal Larry Nemmers, one huge door got shut in his face and two even bigger life-changing doors opened for him. Nemmers, an Iowa native who starred as a running back and safety at Upper Iowa University, tried out for the Chicago Bears in 1965. “I got cut,” said Nemmers, a three-sport athlete for a time at Upper Iowa who was named little-All-America in football there. “I had to find a job.”

  • Larkin, Streamwood will battle for regional soccer title Oct 22, 2014 10:46 PM
    Somehow, someway, Larkin defender Inno Simental had 5 assists alone on throw-ins heading into postseason play. And somehow, someway, Moises Raya managed his only goal of the season on a header off a throw-in. The boys soccer postseason calls for some unconventional ways of winning sometimes as both No. 2 seed Dundee-Crown and No. 3 Larkin would know very well in consecutive years, but the fact that Simental assisted twice on goals off throw-ins and Raya headed in the game-winning with 6:36 remaining of a 2-1 Royals win in a Class 3A Streamwood semifinal matchup Wednesday will definitely add to the tale that ties D-C and Larkin together in postseason action.
