    Leaves are changing colors and dropping to the ground, we have had a frost, and any hope that summer may show up this year is gone. But, here are some events planned around the Town of Schererville as you enjoy autumn.

      Thursday is the last day you can visit Schererville’s Redar Park Farmers Market this year. The closing of the outdoor market is kind of a sad reminder that winter is almost here.

      Boeing bids farewell to an icon on Tuesday: It's delivering its final 747 jumbo jet. Since it debuted in 1969, the 747 has served as a cargo plane, a commercial aircraft capable of carrying nearly 500 passengers, and the Air Force One presidential aircraft. It revolutionized international travel. But over about the past 15 years, Boeing and its European rival Airbus have introduced more profitable and fuel efficient wide-body planes, with two engines instead of the 747's four. The final plane is the 1,574th built by Boeing in the Puget Sound region of Washington state. It's being delivered to cargo carrier Atlas Air.

      A Chicago prosecutor is dropping sex-abuse charges against singer R. Kelly. The decision follows federal convictions in two different courts that ensure the disgraced R&B star will be locked up for decades. Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx made the announcement Monday, a day ahead of a court hearing. Kelly was indicted in 2019 on multiple crimes and accused of sexually abusing four women in Illinois, including three who were minors. Since then, federal juries in Chicago and New York have convicted him of a raft of crimes, including child pornography, enticement, racketeering and sex trafficking. Kelly is already serving a 30-year prison sentence.

      A Chicago-area school district official has been charged in the theft of $1.5 million worth of food — mostly chicken wings. WGN-TV reports Monday that 66-year-old Vera Liddell was being held in the Cook County Jail on a $150,000 bond. Liddell worked as food service director for Harvey School District 152. Documents reviewed by the television station show that more than 11,000 cases of chicken wings were ordered from the district’s food provider and then picked up in a district cargo van. The food was ordered during the height of the coronavirus pandemic at a time when students were being educated remotely and not allowed to attend class in school buildings. The theft was discovered during an audit.
