Famous Females of Rockford

Monday, February 22, 2016 2:49 PM by Guest Blogger

History and social studies have always been my favorite subjects in school. Rockford has and is producing so many accomplished, upstanding citizens. Look up any list of “famous people from Rockford, Illinois.” the list is so long with people from all different professional fields it will make your head spin. George Santayana is credited for the famous quote “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.” However, in regards to these seven famous Rockford ladies, I would be honored to follow in their footsteps.

Wednesday, February 10, 2016 12:43 PM by Guest Blogger

Do you think it's insignificant that even Jesus' first miracle was the transformation of water into wine? I think not! Even Christ himself was a proponent for wine and who can blame Him. I can't really imagine getting through a week, or life itself without wine. Once you begin your love affair with it you'll find that it's more than just an alcoholic beverage, wine becomes a lifestyle. As you drink and study, your knowledge of this delicious substance evolves and you'll always find yourself learning something new about its complexity.

With two divisions, the adult State Competition and the Rockford Area High School Competition, teams are challenged to sculpt their artistic dreams in three to four days from either a 6'x6'x10' block of snow for the State Competition, or a 4'x4'x6' block for the high school competition.

The swishing of the skaters going by. The crashing of the players as they throw each other into the glass. The rush of excitement you feel as your team scores a goal. There's nothing like hockey! Fortunately for us, we don't have to drive a long way to see a good match. The Rockford IceHogs professional hockey team offer an exciting hockey experience right in our own back yard.
