It's that time of year again. With the coming of Winter Break, please do not waste your funds on me with gift cards and the like. If you do wish to do something, please donate to a local charity. Stone Academy's FOSA organization will do wonders with a donation as will organizations such as the Greater Chicago Food Depository and many others. It is a good time of year to help others. Please do so. Thanks!
