THUMBS UP: The used book sale this week at First Church of Lombard will fund several scholarships, including one for a Glenbard East High School student and another for a local woman going back to school. The Lombard Area American Association of University Women event continues from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. today and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. It's a chance to grab a good book for a great cause.

Knippen was recognized for her volunteer work as the education/mission chairwoman for the Chicago Race for the Cure as well as chairwoman for the Lombard Race for the Cure.
