Braun starts third mayoral term as village board takes office

Winners of this spring’s municipal election were sworn in at the June 5 Flossmoor village board meeting. Brian Driscoll, Flossmoor’s newest village trustee, took the oath of office along with three incumbent board members — Mayor Paul Braun and Trustees Diane Williams and Philip Minga. Joni Bradley Scott, the new village clerk, was also sworn in.

School staff members recognized for outstanding service

As the school year ends, teachers, administrators and staff are retiring from Homewood-Flossmoor schools.
 
Whether it was giving a short term or more than 30 years of service, the work of these staff members has been greatly appreciated by all they came in contact with during the school day.

About Us

A great community deserves a great newspaper. The HF Chronicle was created in June 2014 as the Homewood Chronicle (but we soon realized Homewood and Flossmoor are so interconnected that it makes better sense to cover both villages). Our mission is to chronicle the life of our community — news by, for, and about the people of Homewood and Flossmoor, Illinois.
