  • Tri-Cities volleyball teams prepare for stacked sectional Oct 15, 2014 10:11 AM
    Perhaps the Illinois High School Association knew exactly what it was doing when the decision came to shuffle a few girls volleyball sectional tournament alignments this season. Maybe the decision was just by chance — call it the luck of the draw. Whatever the case, the upcoming Class 4A Bartlett sectional field promises to be one of the most competitive in recent memory.

  • A president lacking menace Oct 14, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Richard Cohen: Tell me something: What do you think would happen if the United States concludes that Iran has been cheating and delaying and is about to pop a fully functional nuclear weapons program? Would President Obama respond by joining Israel to bomb the Iranian nuclear facilities to smithereens — or would he stall and equivocate? My bet is the latter and so, just to double down, is what I bet the Iranians are betting. They have taken the measure of Obama. He lacks menace.

  • Krzysko quickly a hit in Arkansas’ lineup Oct 15, 2014 1:56 PM
    It was less than two years ago when area softball fans were watching one of the all-time best displays of home run hitting. Loren Krzysko became Barrington’s all-time home run hitter in the spring of 2012 when the 2012 Daily Herald all-area honorary softball captain belted a school-record 18 and finished her career with 42.
