Treacherous Roads
Treacherous Roads
Byron Gullett, 70, Robinson, was just one of many drivers who went for wild rides Monday as roads transitioned from clear, to slushy to snow-packed. Gullett lost control of his 2005 Chevrolet around 11 a.m. Monday, on Illinois Route 1 near 100N, sending him and a passenger into the ditch. No injuries were reported and damage was estimated at more than $500. Flat Rock Fire Department was called to the scene. (Tom Compton photo)

Unit 1 concerned over state payments
Concerns over the state's failure to pay its share for transportation and pre-kindergarten programs were at the forefront of Tuesday's Hutsonville Unit 1 board meeting.

General state aid payments are on the way, Superintendent Julie Kraemer told the board, but transportation and pre-k payments are not. Final fund balances for fiscal 2018 will depend on whether or not all payments from the state arrive before the fiscal year ends June 30.

Holiday wishes that Santa doesn't only visit the rich
A winter's day, in a deep and dark December - I tend to wake up early these days, as if someone had dropped an iron skillet in the kitchen and made a great noise while I was fast asleep, and it startled me. Now that I'm awake again and the noise is gone, I'm still bothered by it.
