Letter: Kudos for community, Chronicle

November 12, 2020 - 21:10

Thanks and a big shout-out to the editors and staff of the Homewood-Flossmoor Chronicle newspaper.  Not only do you guys provide us with the information and insight on important local news in our communities but the price is just right (LOL)!  I look forward to receiving your newspaper and read it cover to cover. 

You guys provide us residents and neighbors with so many pertinent topics, news and information on what's happening and future goings on in our neighborhood.

Letter: Visitor appreciates Homewood's good vibe

September 13, 2020 - 11:53

I wanted to share something wonderful that happened recently in Homewood.

It was a Thursday evening in late August. My dad and I were sitting on our front porch on Ridge Road. A gentleman walked past on the sidewalk and we waved and he waved - nothing new.  A little while later, as he walked back toward downtown, he came up to the porch, and said that he just had to stop and say "thank you."  

Letter: 183rd Street needs to be reconceived, redesigned

There is an immediacy to the public’s demand for a traffic light at 183rd Street and Center Avenue in response to the tragic crash on July 22 that must be addressed. As the H-F Chronicle reported, the Village of Homewood has begun that work. Helping drivers, walkers and cyclists negotiate this tricky intersection will help save lives.

A poem to bring some comfort

Each day the rules changed.
It was hard to keep up.
On Thursday I was embarrassed of Wednesday.
On Sunday I was shameful of Saturday.
Trivial tasks were suddenly of the greatest importance.
|I vacuumed that kitchen floor with such purpose,
and I had never gotten such satisfaction from selecting combinations of leftovers for meals.
I was truly proud.
