For most of the past 13 years, Katie Hall has eaten school lunch.
Not just lunch at school, but the meal actually prepared by School District 51’s nutrition services program. From the years when chicken nuggets graced her tray and she could buy a sweet treat on the side to menu changes caused by school-lunch reform in recent years, Hall has been a constant customer since she first attended school at Wingate Elementary.

When John Hinckley Jr. was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the 1981 assassination attempt of President Ronald Reagan, jurors left open the possibility that he would one day live outside a mental institution. For decades he's been receiving treatment at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, D.C., and in 2003 a judge ordered Hinckley be allowed to start testing his freedom outside of the facility. For the past year, Hinckley has spent 17 days a month living with his mother in Williamsburg, Virginia. Hearings set for Wednesday will determine whether that time should be increased. Nearing 60, Hinckley could potentially be granted full-time, year-round "convalescent leave" in the community.
