Brandon Ebert receives award

Don’t close Elliott Avenue RR crossing

Years ago, the late Melvin “Sarge” Hammerstrom was considered a “gadfly” by the Glencoe City Council. He had a few special concerns he wanted the Council to address, and he would not take no for an answer. Relentless would be a good word for him.
Sarge also was about as hard of hearing as a door knob, so there was no use arguing with him.
Sarge was insistent in getting the railroad crossings fixed within the city. It was all about safety to him, and the crossings, at nearly all the avenues in central Glencoe, were not exactly safe.
