Remember March 2018

The March 20 local election received a good deal of attention in the March 1 edition, which included news stories about Flossmoor's sales tax referendum and Homewood's home rule referendum. 

Tom Houlihan's column was about the election, and we had a guest commentary from Ann Lousin, a John Marshall Law School professor who was involved in the Illinois Constitutional Convention where delegates developed the current legal structure for municipalities, including the home rule designation.

The cover feature by Carole Sharwarko described a special mentoring relationship between outgoing Flossmoor Hills School principal Patricia McCraven and incoming principal Haley Marti.

Eric Crump's Page 2 column marked the loss of Norman Kranz, a lifelong Homewood resident, veteran, postmaster and firefighter.
