  • Train observation station to be installed in La Grange

    Construction began Thursday on a two-story observation tower to be installed on the corner of Main and Cedar Streets in downtown La Grange.
    The project, led by Discover Downtown La Grange (DDL), was designed by former mayor Bill Lammlein and will be used as a station to observe trains that pass through the city.
    The idea came to DDL, because of the many tourists who come from all over the country and in some cases, the world, to take photos of the trains passing through the historic town.

  • Goshen approves budget for new fiscal year

    In its regular commission meeting, the City of Goshen approved the 2015-16 fiscal year budget and tax ordinance last Monday.
    The second reading of the budget came after three controversial meetings beginning May 12.
    In May’s regular meeting, citizens raised their voices in concern at the “incompetence” of the commission and its inability to appropriate the city’s money.
    After a few budget meetings, the commission finally agreed on amendments in the proposed budget and a first reading was held June 8.

  • Fence built at Wilborn Park to keep geese out

    Last July, former La Grange Mayor Bill Lammlein ordered the killing of 22 geese in Wilborn Park. Since that controversial decision, an ad-hoc committee was created to come up with a solution for the geese overpopulation and droppings.
    Last week, youth from La Grange Baptist Church built one of those solutions — a picket fence around the pavilion in the park in an effort to keep the geese out.
    The fence was built in a u-shape with one end open for people to enter and exit.  

  • Physicians bring new accessible healthcare office to Crestwood

    It’s not uncommon that when a child is sick unexpectedly, a parent must take off work sometimes a full day to take their child to an urgent care facility or to the emergency room because their primary care doctor isn’t available. And with the high price of medical insurance premiums, some patients don’t see their doctors as much as they wish they could.
    A solution to both of these problems may be found at a new family doctor’s office located in Crestwood.
