Thanks to retiring T.F. North baseball coach for his efforts

Well, I didn’t know Mike Kosiara, but I knew about him. I have seen his teams play. And I knew through others who played and/or coached with him, that he was dedicated, worked hard, and gave much of himself to young men of Calumet City and Lansing (but mostly to Calumet City) through the gam…

Cal City sinkhole could have been much worse

Well, Calumet City was a lead story on a lot of local newscasts a few days back (not always a good thing). But this was for a rather unusual circumstance that turned out not to be as bad as it could have been.

Hopeful signs at the Chicago Auto Show

I’ve never really been much of a gear head — you know, way into cars. I’ve been around for a long time, but I’ve only owned three new cars. I’ve had used ones and I tended to keep those a long time. I was a good friend of Terry Nelleman, of the former Terry’s Motors in Calumet City, but not …

St. Florian School in Hegewisch worth saving

Haunted hayride scares up fun in Cal City

Well, with Halloween gone, we’ve passed the last commercial speed bump before the onslaught of advertising prep for the “big one” — Christmas, the season of Biblical spending. (That’s kind of ironic, no?)

Local organizations for the needy seek donations

I met up recently with some old friends from my earliest teaching days at St. Victor School in Calumet City. Tom Pietrasek, Sue Schmakel, Sister Therese Del Genio, and I taught together for several years in the early to mid 1970s.
