The student news publication of Libertyville High School

Samantha Nelson


Randy was born in Libertyville and graduated from Libertyville High School during the 1970’s. He has held various jobs ranging from a paperboy to a landscaper. Now to pass the time, Randy reads every day and spends time in Cook Library, but as he gets older and older, it has been harder for him to read the text in books. Recently Randy busted his knee and that was a moment that opened his eyes to the fact that he is getting older.


When asked what he likes most about PADS, Randy responded with, “Laying on the mat with a pillow. I sleep on the cement, picnic tables and hard wooden stuff — it sucks after a while… It gets cold. You can’t sleep — your feet get numb — I hate it…Why did I start coming here? Well, gee, just because I didn’t wanna sleep in my car all the time.”
