Remember January 2018

Remember January 2018? It was a long time ago, to be sure. The Chronicle's print edition is one way to recall that long, lost month.

Our cover feature focused on the Industrial Technology program at Homewood-Flossmoor High School. 

We also offered stories on Homewood School District 153's strategic plan, on the two generations of the Rahmani family serving as doctors in the UChicago-Ingalls system and on the Flossmoor Board of Trustees' decision to place a sales tax issue on the ballot.

Tom Houlihan's column employed his Munchkin characters to wish everyone a happy new year. Eric Crump's Page 2 column recounted Mayor Richard Hofeld's misadventure in an icy lake at Izaak Walton Nature Preserve. 

Re-read the issue to see what else was happening in H-F as we made the transition from 2017 to 2018.
