    McHENRY – Seven-year-old twins Joseph and Jeramy Morgan may look identical, but their interests couldn’t be more different.


    Joseph loves to draw and wants to be an art teacher when he grows up. Jeramy is more active and loves to play outside. With the twins, plus her 11-year-old daughter, Madison, single mother Tiffani Greenenwald has a lot of different personalities to care for.

  • A challenge to volunteer
  • To the Editor:

    The article “Big brothers in small supply” from the Sept. 22 Northwest Herald read, “Currently there are 21 boys and three girls who have yet to be matched up with a Big Brother or Big Sister, and the program hasn’t had a new volunteer through its doors since June.”

  • CRYSTAL LAKE – Adam Varrassi and Hunter Johnson are searching for Devil’s Pit.


    The two have been here before, deep in the back of Veteran Acres Park in Crystal Lake. Hunter, 10, leads the way, twisting and turning his way through hills and tall grass. Adam, 29, lets Hunter navigate even after several wrong turns.


    Adam and Hunter met through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program of McHenry County. The two were matched up in July 2012 and have grown a bond stronger than either would have expected.
