Congratulations to the 2013 Varsity Argonauts on making it to the playoffs! The team has had one of their most successful seasons in decades this school year. After beating Shepard last week 28-24, the Argonauts secured their spot in their fight towards the IHSA state championship. The first playoff game is this Friday, November 1st, at 7:00PM with an admission price of $5. We’d like to wish the team luck as they face the Oak Forest Bengals for their first, and hopefully not their last, playoff game.
WARG will be covering the game on High School Cube: link to watch

The now 10-day partial government shutdown continues to take its toll on people and businesses alike. Wall Street, however, isn’t suffering as much anymore; the Dow Jones industrial average increased by more than 300 points on Thursday. This occurred after talks with Republican leaders and President Barack Obama, where they seemed almost willing to finally end the shutdown. This is reassuring news, considering that not everyone can do as great as Wall Street. The shutdown has put over 800,000 federal employees out of a job, leaving them without pay until the government can come to an agreement.
