Hard times for netters

It’s been a difficult year for the Glencoe-Silver Lake tennis team. The squad remains without a victory on the season as a number of fresh faces have been thrust into the varsity lineup out of sheer necessity.

With the most recent loss of Tess Chap, out due to a back injury, the Panthers are currently fielding a varsity squad that is almost entirely different than the one that took to the court for the season opener less than one month ago.

GRHS proposes $25 million long-term care project

Glencoe Regional Health Services (GRHS) Long Term Care facility was a state-of-the art facility when it was built in the early 1980s. The idea of shared rooms and centralized activities was the thing to do.
The state-of-the-art idea today is a smaller “household” concept, according to Jon Braband, chief executive officer of GRHS in his presentation to the city of Glencoe’s Planning Commission. He spoke to the commission of the proposed $25 million expansion and remodeling project at the planning commission meeting Thursday night.
