Happy holidays, readers!

Need some last-minute present inspiration? Our special holiday gift guide in our December issue is sure to have something to spark your imagination this season.

And in the vein of igniting new ideas, we have a few other inspirational treats as well. Hear first-hand from a local highschooler who graduated early, and what other teens can do to follow that path.

Also, members of the Syracuse Stallions basketball team talk balancing the love of the sport with the love of their families in four heartfelt Q&A's.
