This week's cover - A house united

While the Hinsdale Middle School Spartans and the Clarendon Hills Middle School Eagles are rivals in sports, when it comes to graduation both held their ceremonies within three hours of each other in the HMS gym on Friday May 31. HMS graduates and their families filled the gym first at 2:30 p.m. Most will now go on to share a common alma mater as members of Hinsdale Central's Red Devil Nation.
