I like the coverage.... EXCEPT.... you do not have any pictures of the Lincoln-Way Central band. Why is it Lincoln-Way Central has been often imitated, but NEVER duplicated! Where are their pictures?

@Cheryl Onesto: Even though we shoot a lot of photos or entire events, we're not always able to publish everything we capture. It can be for a variety of reasons, either because the photos that were shot didn't turn out or something happened and we weren't able to take the photograph. Let me assure you, however, that there hasn't been a conscious effort to exclude Lincoln-Way Central High School (although since this story originates from Frankfort Patch, we don't put as much emphasis on the New Lenox high schools that we do on Frankfort ones). The great thing about Patch, though, is that you can upload your own photos to the article. Did you get good shots of the L-W Central band? If so, post them here. I'm sure a lot of people would love to see them. Joe Vince Local Editor, Frankfort/Mokena
