THUMBS UP: Local students used a hands-on business project to raise more than $10,000 for charity. St. Pius X Parish School students and recent graduates competed in the Food Wars Challenge for Charity, in which teams followed the steps to starting a business and then sold their products Jan. 31 at the Lombard school. Success never tasted so good.

THUMBS UP: Congratulations to Nick Collis of Lombard and his band, Game Changer, which recently won the Willowbrook High School Battle of the Bands. The pop-punk band now looks forward to recording its first EP later this year.
