Remember June 2018

In June, our cover feature focused on how local firefighters keep themselves fueled up and ready to respond to emergencies. Carrie Steinweg's story covered the culinary talents of Homewood and Flossmoor firefighters, with photos by Mary Compton.

Top news stories included the purchase of the Triumph Building on Ridge Road by the village of Homewood. The village plans to market the site for redevelopment. It was one of the sites featured in an economic development marketing campaign unveiled in April.

Flossmoor began a project to revamp the flow of vehicular traffic downtown to make the area safer for pedestrians.

Marilyn Thomas reported on a snag in the Homewood-Flossmoor District 233 plan to build a fine arts addition to H-F High School when the Board of Education's finance committee voted against funding the project.
