Few and far between

They do not have a shared nickname.

They are not The Terrific Trio, The Three Amigos or The Band of Three.

They are known simply by their names: Charles Durst, James Heinold and Ben Herriott.

They are also unique as the only current men serving as classroom teachers at Mahomet's Lincoln Trail Elementary School.


Teen singer Jada Moseley a rising star

In our modern world, many popular idioms from yesteryear are either completely obsolete or at least need updating.

How often do parents in 2017 tell their children, "A penny saved is a penny earned?"

More likely, however, is to hear the expression, "It's a piece of cake."


On call when disaster strikes

It's never expected.

The fire that takes a home. The death that shakes a family. The car accident that leaves the occupants injured.

But then it does. And in the moment of shock and disarray, the victims are not sure what steps to take next.

Constantly in jams

Sara DeYoung likes to find herself in the middle of a jam.

It's a common position for the westside Mahomet resident, especially from June through October.

Her jams are all self-made and ones that she willingly creates.

It might be peach jam.

Or raspberry.

Or blueberry.

Or some other concoction combining several ingredients.


Harrington family doubles their parenting pleasure

Regina Harrington and her husband, Clay, have vivid imaginations, but they have limits.
