Firefighters from the Palatine Rural and Rolling Meadows fire departments practice rescues and train at Inverness home.
Firefighters with the Palatine Rural and Rolling Meadows fire departments flooded a smoke filled home in Inverness, shouting and searching for people trapped inside. “These opportunities are tremendous,” said Palatine Rural Assistant Chief Jeff Dill, “This kind of training is so necessary.” While the house fire looked very real and firefighters moved with a sense of urgency, it’s all staged; a scenario setup to sharpen the firefighters’ skills. Estimated at about $650,000, the Inverness home was donated to the Palatine Rural Fire Protection District and the Rolling Meadows Fire Department to be used for training. “You just can’t get this kind of training unless you’re at a real house fire,” Dill shouted as a fireman cut into the roof of …

Republican Matt Murphy will seek re-election in 2012 the newly-drawn 27th District.
Republican State Senator Matt Murphy announced that he will seek re-election in 2012 in the 27th District. Murphy said the state's budget woes and taxes remain at the forefront of his priorities. The state has consistently been late with payments to local school districts and late in disbursing tax revenue back to the village of Palatine. "There's no question that those who rely on state government funding, are looking at the state to deliver on what it has promised and in a timely fashion," Murphy said. Murphy's district was changed a bit by realignment. The district used to include about half of Barrington Township, that no longer is the case. The district also used to include part of Buffalo Grove and Wheeling. The newly drawn district …

Maggie Rogers died in a traffic accident when she was 10 years old, but a golf tournament in her name that awards scholarships continues to honor her legacy.
The Maggie Rogers Invitational, the only all-girls Illinois Junior Golf Association (IJGA) tournament, was held at Inverness Golf Club this week. Despite a three-hour rain delay after storms ripped through the area, as well as a power outage at the golf club during the event, the tournament which was set to end at 3:30 p.m., picked up in the early afternoon and finished around 6 p.m. The invitational tournament has been going strong for the last 16 years, and was created in memory of Maggie Rogers, an Inverness girl who was killed in a traffic accident on Mother’s Day in 1995. It was May 14 of that year, and Maggie and her grandmother left Inverness Golf Club after spending the day with her parents Ken and Nancy Rogers, to go shopping. …

Palatine Township schedules "Coping With Coyote Seminar" at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 22.
Palatine Township will host a “Coping with Coyote Seminar” from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 22, after several attacks in the area. Palatine Township Trustee Sharon Langlotz-Johnson said an expert from the Crabtree Nature Center will discuss how people can cope and safely deal with coyotes living in the area. The seminar is free and will be at the Palatine Township Center, 721 S. Quentin Road. “Part of the problem is that we have built up in this area so much the animals have no where to go,” Langlotz-Johnson said. Palatine resident Jeff June addressed the township board last month, saying that coyotes had killed one of his two Yorkshire terriers just 5 feet from his front door in Plum Grove Estates. In Inverness, resident Derrick Czapala …

Five current and former Fremd High School students face criminal charges related to a May 26 brawl in Inverness during which an 18-year-old was stabbed. Inverness Police Chief Bob Haas said four juveniles between the ages of 15 and 17 have been charged with fighting in public.

If found guilty, the youths face a fine of up …
