In May 2017 Amtrak conductor Michael Case was shot at a Naperville train station. A Homewood resident, Case was shot in the abdomen and has endured a months-long rehabilitation. He wrote to the H-F Chronicle to express his gratitude for the neighbors who are helping him recover.
I am forever grateful for the massive love I received from my family, neighbors and business owners in town. The owners, staff and patrons of the 5th Quarter were exceptional!
I have made a lot of friends at the H-F Racquet and Fitness Club as well. I have been walking daily around the indoor track as well as doing physical therapy with Dr. (Douglas) Conroy and his team.
Everyone I have met at the club has touched my heart, squeezed my soul, and encouraged me to rock out the path to recovery.
Home sweet Homewood has been my place of comfort and support! To all the good people in our beloved town — thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
