    Sandy Illian Bosch|Updated Jul 5, 2023

    Tyler Hamman has learned a lot as owner and founder of Ty's Treats, including the fact that his young customers prefer their SpongeBob ice cream treats with gumball eyes rather than chocolate ones. "When they replaced the gumballs with chocolate, kids started buying them less," said Hamman, who opened Ty's Treats at the Hinsdale Community Pool this summer. Hamman got his first job working behind the front desk of the pool when he was 15. The next year, he worked for Sauced...

But two AD friends he met for breakfast at a conference told him about an open position. "They started talking to me about the...

  • July Fourth parade highlight of summer

    Sandy Illian Bosch|Updated Jun 28, 2023

    The Fourth of July parade has been a summer tradition for generations of kids growing up in Hinsdale, including Tim Balster. From the time he was in elementary school, Balster said he always found a way to not only watch the parade, but to participate. He pulled a model of the Liberty Bell behind his decorated bike and at age 11 traversed the entire parade route via pogo stick. After a few years of juggling while riding a unicycle, Balster landed on his most notable mode of...

  • IHSA ends boys gymnastics state series

    Ken Knutson|Updated Jun 21, 2023

    Hinsdale Central's boys gymnastics program was the envy of the state 50 years ago, winning four straight Illinois High School Association titles from 1970-73. The team's championship in 1995 made nine total, still more than any other school. It's a record that may now never be broken as the IHSA has decided to discontinue the boys gymnastics state series due to low participation. In a June 12 press release announcing the end of both the boys gymnastics and debate state series,...

"Coming in to the match we were amped and excited,"...

  • This week's cover - A great night to be a graduate

    Updated Jun 7, 2023

    The label "COVID class" was given to the Hinsdale Central Class of 2023. The freshman who started in the fall of 2019 had no idea what was ahead for them as they began their life as Red Devils. In March of 2020 as the world shut down, Red Devil Nation hunkered down and redefined their educational experiences. A severe summer storm with heavy rainfall and strong winds - which pelted northeast Hinsdale - barely touched Dickinson Field a couple hours before the start of the...
