New Traffic Pattern
At last night’s city council meeting, after much deliberation, the group voted to create a new traffic pattern to make way for the new Ashwood Crossing development: an age restricted community for those 55 and older. Through an 8-1 vote, council approved to extend Trumpet Road near 248th street and Wolf’s Crossing Road so that residents can easily maneuver around the new development. The extension would include traffic signals at both ends of the road.
Family Needs Help
Community members along with the Scullen Middle School PTSA have created a recovery fund to help a local family whose home was destroyed by a fire on Monday. The Jellouli’s have 3 children, one of whom has special needs. His wheelchair and medical equipment were consumed by the fire, along with the family’s possessions, and one of their vehicles. Donations can be made at their go fund me page: www.gofundme.com/jellouli.
Campaign of Inclusion
A nationwide campaign has put down stakes in Naperville. Mimi Qunell spearheaded the local chapter of “Hate Has No Home Here,” a movement to use signs to declare places as a safe space where everyone is welcomed and valued. She raised money for about 700 signs – 300 go to those who donated, the rest are available to the general public. To find out more, you can visit their Facebook page.
Benet Basketball Win
Last night at East Aurora, Benet Academy put its 16 game post season winning streak on the line against Yorkville. The Redwings got off to a slow start, but their relentless pressure eventually became too much for the Foxes to handle. Tsimba Malonga scored 19 to lead Benet to a 54-39 victory. The Redwings will go for their third straight sectional championship on Thursday night against Plainfield East.
