  • While I was waiting with a crowd of children for Santa Claus to make an appearance in St. Charles, I turned in time to see a couple cowboys walking their horses past a bar. It was a like a flashback to the Old West days. I was able to rattle off a few frames before the back-in-time scene disappeared. It wasn't until I was editing the photos that I noticed the "McWilliams Harness Shop Est. 1877." I did a little research and according to the book "St. Charles" by Wynette Edwards, the shop did exist in town and was owned by David McWilliams. This photo was published in the weekly Perspective column in the print edition.

  • Algonquin resident Rick Klewin shovels the last of the snow from his driveway Monday morning, after dealing with most of it using a snow thrower.

He added that he was jealous that areas to the north received more snow, particularly in Wisconsin.
