    Patrick Kane's the hero as Hawks tie series

    The Blackhawks celebrate Patrick Kane's overtime goal in overtime that evened the series against the St. Louis Blues Wednesday in Game 4 at the United Center in Chicago.

    Apr 24, 2014 5:12 AM

    The star of the show Wednesday night by far was Patrick Kane, who not only had a goal and assist in regulation, but also notched the game-winner in overtime to give the Blackhawks a 4-3 victory over St. Louis. Kane's game-winner came on a wrist shot from the dot that beat Blues goalie Ryan Miller. “(Brandon Saad) made a good play driving to the back post and gave me some space to try and get a shot off,” Kane said.


    Naperville delays approval of lead cleanup contract

    Invasive trees have been removed from a 17-acre site at Sportsman’s Park near downtown Naperville in advance of a second phase of soil cleanup set to take place there this spring.

The concerns are "nothing earth-shattering," Executive Director Ray McGury said, but park district officials would like to get them ironed out before potential approval of a $2.9 million contract for lead removal and other work at the park.

    Seven months after they unceremoniously told Wauconda to find another source for Lake Michigan drinking water, the Central Lake County Joint Action Water Agency board on Wednesday voted to restart negotiations with the town. But the discussion that preceded the 9-0 vote included some strong words for Wauconda Mayor Frank Bart, whom the panel continues to blame for the collapse of the earlier negotiations last fall.
