It’s the Barrington area’s own version of Chicago’s Polar Plunge! Brave souls took an icy dip in the Fox River for a cause and that story made the cover of this week’s Barrington Suburban Life newspaper.

Barrington Suburban Life – March 13, 2014

From schools to dog sledding to Barrington’s newest police officer, this week’s Barrington Suburban Life is full of great stories from our community.  Here’s a look at what you’ll find inside this week’s issue, thanks to reporter Tarah Thorne…

School vies for Blue Ribbon
Looking to earn a National Blue Ribbon Award from the U.S. Department of Education, Rose Elementary Principal Scott Carlson shares the school’s secrets to success. More than 20 staff members are working to write the school’s formal application, a report due to the state by March 20.

Freezin’ for a Reason
Barrington Suburban Life photo contributor Jeff Krage spent Sunday afternoon at Broken Oar Marina Bar & Grill in Port Barrington to capture the chaos. Swimmers braved icy Fox River waters to raise more than $10,000 for Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

Meet Barrington’s newest police officer
Joseph Flinton, 24, was sworn into service Feb. 10 by village trustees – a first-hire for Barrington’s new police chief David Dorn. Born and raised in New York, Flinton shared his goals for his career in law enforcement.

Barrington mom organizes dog sled trip
This winter has brought some of the coldest temperatures ever, but that hasn’t stopped a group of local women from adventuring. Barrington hike director Carol Ruhter shares the story of her life-changing group trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Dog sledding was just the beginning.

Farewell to winter sports, senior athletes
This week’s issue of Barrington Suburban Life recaps the highlights of Barrington High School’s winter sports season. Read up on boys and girls basketball, gymnastics, boys swimming, boys and girls bowling, wrestling and cheerleading. Thanks for a great season, athletes!

Red carpet appearance
A new partnership with Hollywoodchicago.com allows BHS-TV members to attend and cover Hollywood film premieres. Teacher Jeff Doles and several students met “Divergent” stars at the Chicago movie premiere March 4. This is extra-exciting for Barrington area residents since the “Divergent” film is based off a trilogy written by Barrington author Veronica Roth. “Divergent” officially hits theaters March 21.

You’ll find these stories and much more in this week’s Barrington Sububan Life.
