Local News

Letter: Kudos for community, Chronicle

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.

I moved my family to Homewood back in 1998.  Since then, my sister and her family, as well as my parents (RIP) have followed me here. I have raised my family here, graduated them from Churchill Elementary, James Hart and H-F High School; even had a son who starred on the Homewood Small Fry Basketball team.  

In my years here, I have met many good neighbors and friends and have found that this is the best neighborhood anywhere to live in. I support local businesses and I’ve even started to explore the great trails at Izaak Walton Preserve. 

Your newspaper is informative in a folksy way.  Keep up the great work and continue to provide us with the information you provide, and as Ray Charles said, making it “do what it do”!
