Rockford-based Byrne — a power and data-solutions manufacturer and supplier — is expanding operations by constructing a new manufacturing facility and collaborative workspace in Lakeview on the same property once home to America’s largest pickle salting station.
For the past 14 years, Lakeview Area Community Fund (LACF) has been giving students, businesses and civic organizations in the village a financial leg up. Organizers reason what’s good for the residents is good for the entire municipality.
By the time a student enters third, fourth or fifth grade, his or her teacher has a pretty good idea what to expect. The student’s abilities are, in part at least, a known quality.
The former home of America’s largest pickle salting station is poised for a new future in industry. An official announcement could be made as soon as this month about a new industry — and new jobs — coming to almost 9 acres of property formerly home to a lumber and sawmill outfit and later a pickle facility on the shores of Tamarack Lake, confirmed Lakeview Village Manager Jacob Eckholm.
Two years of planning and hard work are soon to come to fruition for Lakeview Community Schools.
The renovation and construction project there — the result of the 2013 passage of a $12.5 million bond — has resulted in needed improvements to virtually every area of the elementary, middle and high schools.
The Wheatland Music Festival always draws a crowd, and this year it was a sellout one.
The 42nd annual festival took place Friday through Sunday near Remus, boasting an audience of more than 10,000 people.
Organizers of the annual Wheatland Music Festival are hoping to attract a few more Sunday-only music lovers at this year’s event, slated for Sept. 11-13. The festival, which has steadily grown in popularity and attendance in the 42 years it has been in existence typically sells out early, particularly for those purchasing three-day camping reservations.
For decades, the village of Lakeview’s name has been something of a misnomer. There’s a lake there, sure, but — except for the handful of residents who actually live on Tamarack’s shores — it has gone mostly unseen and unnoticed.
What started out as a normal afternoon for the Dolson family turned into a shocker. Quite literally. Just around 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Todd Dolson was upstairs in his Six Lakes home when he heard a loud bang and felt his whole house literally move under his feet.
