Lighting Lamp Design for Memorial Field

Several hundred Glen Ellyn residents and Glenbard West students packed the Glenbard West library Tuesday night to listen to proponents and opponents of the proposed installation of lights at Memorial Field during the Glenbard School District 87 Board meeting.

Lighting Plan for Memorial Field

On February 7, 2011 the Glenbard School District 87 Board was scheduled to vote on approving the installation of lights at the newly renovated Memorial Field across Crescent Blvd from Glenbard West High School.

Swing Thru the Stacks at the Glen Ellyn Library

On Friday, January 28, the Glen Ellyn Library 18 hole mini golf course was host to 175 people who enjoyed holes such as “Alice in Wonderland” and “Julie and Julia.” One hundred seventy five people of all ages enjoyed playing the book-themed holes. There were also silent auction prizes available to bid on. Sponsored by the Glen Ellyn Library Foundation and the Friends of the Library, the fundraiser collected over $9600 that will go toward further development of the butterfly garden.

It was an all around bad day for Metra West Line commuters Friday as two unrelated incidents delayed morning and evening rush hour train service.

On Friday morning, a man was struck and killed about 6:45 a.m. by outbound train #15 near the intersection of Kilbourn Avenue and Kinzie Street, Metra Spokesman Tom Miller said.

The incident halted Metra trains on the Union Pacific/West line. While Metra service announcements in Glen Ellyn at 7:35a.m. indicated uncertain delay times and an indefinite stoppage, Metra trains were moving as of 7:50 a.m., Miller said.

The Union Pacific is conducting an online contest to determine which route the UP Steam Excursion train will take in the near future.

Vote now. The contest ends next Monday, January 17th.
