SPOT THE ODD SNOWFLAKE – The snowflake decorations are up in Homewood, and as always, Mayor Rich Hofeld invites sharp-eyed residents to find the one snowflake decoration that is different from the others. Anyone who does can stop by village hall from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays throughout December and claim a prize. The mayor has a choice of coupons from Krispy Kreme and Twisted Q to give to everyone who correctly identifies the location of the odd snowflake.
