Found small black terrier dog

Hello. We found an adorable dog yesterday roaming around Kostner and Kamerling. She was going south on Kostner and almost got hit by a car when She decided to go east. She is safe now, took her a bath, fed her and will take her to the vet later on today to see if she is chipped. I posted on Ilinois lost dogs, pawboost and also craigslist. I contacted 311 and reported the dog as well. If this is your dog or if you have any information regarding this dog please contact me at 773 936 9979..call me or text me anytime. I am really hoping the owners are found. Thank you

World Vision to host run for clean water this weekend

La Grange Park pastor Tim Hoekstra will join Austin residents as they participate in Saturday's World Vision 6k - which is roughly the distance many living in Africa must walk to get clean water.

    World Vision to host run for clean water this weekend
    In certain parts of Africa, the average walking distance to a water source is just shy of four miles. That's why Tim Hoekstra leads Austin residents in World Vision's Global 6k for clean water every year; he wants clean water to be more accessible to a greater number of African families.
