Thumbs up, thumbs down for Hinsdale

Thumbs up to Clarendon Hills teen Jack Mitchell Jr. for beginning the open wheel racing season with two second place finishes at F1600 Championship races July 17 and July 18 in Toronto. Additionally, in 2013, the amatuer racer secured sponsorships with Sparco, Honda, and Spectrum, and he was named lead driver of the Canadian team, Exclusive Autosport, and won the Toyo Tires F1600 Championship A-Class Championship. While Mitchell dreams of one day racing in the Indianapolis 500, he also has his priorities in order and will be attending Marquette University in the fall.

Thumbs up to Burr Ridge residents Emmy and Bob King for donating $1.5 million to the Chicago Zoological Society to create the King Conservation Science Scholars program. The program will serve 120 Chicago-area high school students, 65 percent of whom will be female and/or underserved students. The society is also teaming up with several local schools and community organizations to develop courses and assist in the program. Courses are designed to build competency in science, environmental education and career and college readiness.
