Ricky Rose named Grand National Modified champion

Ricky Rose of Glencoe was named the Grand National Modified Champion at the 51st National Tractor Pulling Championships in Bowling Green in August. This is Rose’s first grand national title.
Unlike other sports, tractor pulling uses an accumulated point system that takes into account every event contestants take part in. The contestant with the most accumulated points at the end of the season is given a grand national title. Rose’s winning score for the season was 322 points with six wins, four second-place titles, one third-place title and one fourth-place title.

City Council votes 3-2 to table rescue truck financing

At Monday night’s Glencoe City Council meeting, the city recommended offering the townships the same five-year financing plan as the city of Glencoe for the new Rosenbauer fire rescue truck.
With this payment option, the townships will give a down payment in 2018 and pick up the additional cost of interest at 2.35 percent with each payment thereafter. All together, the townships would pay $15,695 per year.
The townships would still have the option of paying the one lump sum payment, which would be due in approximately March of 2019.
