    When a friend gave Gina Crater-Lilja a sweater as a gift, she asked where the friend bought it. Off a truck, the woman said. That’s hardly the answer Crater-Lilja expected. But she loved the sweater and looked into a growing trend on the West Coast that offers fashion stores on wheels. That’s where Crater-Lilja got the idea to create Fashion in Motion in Lake County a couple of months ago.

  • Walsh bouncing back after scary mound moment May 30, 2013 8:37 PM
    Joe Walsh produced an unforgettable baseball season for Oakton College. But the former Palatine High School star has no recollection of how it ended May 12. The NJCAA Region IV Player of the Year had put together impressive numbers at the plate and on the mound. And Walsh needed just six more outs to preserve a 1-run lead in Region IV Division II Sectional Tournament title game at Black Hawk College in Moline. Walsh would not find himself mobbed by teammates and coaches celebrating a big victory, however.
