  • FAKE SYRUP AND CHILLED RED WINE

    When I asked the German flight attendant for ice water, he responded, “One U.S. drink, coming up! You Americans think you are healthy, but your drinks are very unhealthy. You drink everything so cold. Sometimes, even your red wine!” 

    It was the first time in my life I had been told that ice water was unhealthy. I refrained from pointing out that he hails from a country where pork is served for three meals a day, plus snacks; and sometimes that pork is raw.  If anything cold is unhealthy, raw pork tops the list.

    What started out as a trip to pick up a cat has turned in to so much more for Fred and Dottie Fellows of La Grange.

    “We thought about not getting another one,” Fred Fellows said. “And we made it about a week before we decided it was just too lonely without a pet.”

  • City passes Ad Valorum Tax

    La Grange City Council met Sept. 3 for the first time after passing the compensation tax and discovering an error in the amount the city was paying for employee's health insurance.

    The city approved a renewal of an Ad Valorum tax during the meeting, passing it unanimously. Mayor Bill Lammlein said the rates are not increasing and have not for a few years.
