“Secret Rockford”-A Hit In My Book

ProLifeCorner.com – 2-27-2014 – by Chris –  I recently read “Secret Rockford” and I must tell you, in spite of reading about some of the horrible events that have occurred in Rockford, I did enjoy the book.  One of the chapters was entitled “Of Tragedy and Triumph”  and this could easily have been the title of the book.  There are brief stories of great sadness along with those of great success and triumph.  The horrific murder of children and the mob influence in the city were disturbing to read; however, the piece about a one- on- one basketball game and a young person’s rise from poverty is heartwarming.  The book is well worth the time it takes to read  and you just might learn a lot about the Forest City that you never knew.

The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting
room of what I thought to be a court house.

The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat
by the defense table. Continue reading

Hang Together or Hang Separately

Freeport IL.- ProLifeCorner.com-  By Frank Munda-  2-19-2014-  Benjamin Franklin said “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”  Thomas Paine wrote “These are the times that try men’s souls.”  Even though these quotes came from heroes of the Revolutionary War, it can apply to this moment in America’s history.  Up until  9/11, all attacks on American religious freedom and our way of life has been from external sources; not so anymore.  For the past 6 years the Obama administration has waged open warfare on Catholics and all other Christians.  These attacks are well documented, so therefore it is not necessary for me to recap them in this article.

What To Do With Auschwitz In Rockford?

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 2-12-2014 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – We have been told that the city of Rockford, Il. is considering purchasing the former abortion mill, Northern Illinois Women’s Center ( N.I.W.C.) to use as a geo police station. Below are just a few of the many reasons this would be money wasted and would only enrich the coffers of the building owner.  There are other locations that could be utilized for the police station.  The building at 10th and Broadway was in such poor condition when it was closed over two years ago that it would take much taxpayer money to get it up to code and decent standards.  Continue reading

Germs, Pollution, Smoking and Selfishness

ProLifeCorner.com-  2/4/2014-  By Larry Plachno-  It is human nature to assume that we live in an enlightened age where all knowledge is now available and there is nothing new to learn. Nothing could be further from the truth. Reality is that statistics and reports are teaching us new things all the time about how our society functions and how one thing impacts another. It was less than 200 years ago that we learned about how germs spread disease. Today we are learning how selfishness spreads through our society. Continue reading
