Glencoe’s new coffeehouse has become a second home for its owners — but, after all, that’s the whole point. 

Working open to close every day at Hometown Coffee and Juice, Glencoe couple Lou and Julie Rubin have invested their money, sweat and tears into the new business and want the downtown location to feel like “you’re sitting in your living room,” Julie said.

The beginning of New Trier’s season has been a tale of two starts. 

In Week 1 against York, the Trevians started with a three-and-out and allowed a York touchdown on the ensuing possession. In Week 2, the Trevs embarked on a 13-play, 76-yard odyssey to start the game, capped by a five-yard touchdown plunge by junior power back Max Rosenthal. 

As a team built on a power football identity, when asked about the opening drive, Rosenthal smiled.
