    1. Fair is fair
      It’s about time this ‘project’ is looked into a bit further. I will be watching this one closely. Funny how this didn’t make local newspapers.

      Do you consider the Tribune a local paper?
      They had the story several days before the NYTimes picked up on it.
      I don’t see it as much of a story for Evanston Now given the thorough coverage by other media and the fairly preliminary legal jousting stage of the controversy.

  1. Can’t have it both ways
    It wasn’t Evanston that made the paper, it was Northwestern. Evanstonians can’t engage in non-stop NU-bashing and then ride its coattails when a big legal activism story runs in The Times – not cool.

  2. Cross Town Sports Showcase
    Great idea to give the middle-schoolers some exposure to the high school programs and what will be needed to be successful. I hope it’s expanded to other sports that teens might participate in at the high school level.
