THORNTON TOWNSHIP REFERENDA — With 92% of precincts reporting, one of three Thornton Township referenda appears to be approved. By a 72.94% to 27.06% margin, voters favored creating a second food pantry in the township. A measure that would have created a new board and a 0.15% tax to fund mental health services appears headed for defeat. Unofficial results show 38.18% voted yes and 61.82% voted no. Voters also were answering no to the question of whether to add a soup and salad bar to township offerings, with 19.65% voting yes and 80.35% voting no as of 9 p.m. Tuesday.

HOMEWOOD LIBRARY — Trustees will meet at 7 p.m. tonight in the library, 17917 Dixie Highway. Find the agenda here.

HOMEWOOD STORIES — Five storytellers will be performing at the Flossmoor Community House, 847 Hutchison Road.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The program begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 at the door, or $15 if purchased in advance at here.
