Brownton delays razing Turner property

At a Brownton forfeiture auction at the beginning of this year, Rockford resident John Turner bought properties he intended to renovate. One of those properties in Brownton, formerly Nelson’s Market, referenced as the “warehouse,” was the antagonist of a rancorous discussion that visibly and vocally enraged Council Member Curtis Carrigan and the city’s Public Works Supervisor Chad Draeger.
The building was on the Dec. 4 agenda to be “razed” — a complete demolition.

For ‘Grandpa Jack,’ music is a family affair

For nearly all of his life, there have been three indelibly linked constants in Jack Noennig’s life — family, music and education.
Sunday, Dec. 16, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Noennig and the 29 members of the Community Strings will perform holiday concerts at 3 and 7 p.m. The group has been rehearsing for weeks to make the concert additionally special for the audience.
“The sound we have this year is probably better than anything we’ve ever had,” Noennig said.

Treat people fairly - Our view: Ordinance process seems unjust

Sarah Mallory’s dog, Indy, has been deemed potentially dangerous. Whether it really is dangerous is arguable.
What is certain is Glencoe’s ordinance dealing with potentially dangerous dogs does not provide residents anything remotely resembling a level playing field or due process.
The city does not have a lot of practice dealing with supposedly dangerous dogs. It shows. In recent memory, there have only been two declarations a dog is dangerous. One of the owners did not appeal the declaration.
