South Beloit turns 100

STATELINE NEWS--The city of South Beloit is having a birthday party, and everyone is invited.

A centennial celebration will be held Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 24 through Aug. 27. Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. Thursday with a kick-off ceremony, followed by a future football program scrimmage, flag football alumni game and park dedication at South Beloit City Park.

“They’re going to kick off the centennial and dedicate the field and the park,” John Patrick of the South Beloit Historical Society said. “(The park) has never had a name other than South Beloit City Park, but we’re going to put up a dedication sign.”

SOUTH BELOIT -- It isn’t stuff of the hit 1985 movie, but organizers and supporters of Nature at the Confluence are going back to the future.

They’re learning about what once was, while imagining what the abused land near the intersection of the Rock River and Turtle Creek can become again.

STATELINE NEWS -- It’s Memorial Day weekend, and summer already seems to be in full swing in the Stateline area.

    The summer festival season began Friday, as it always does, with the Young at Heart Festival in Loves Park.

But there are many other events happening throughout the summer; if if they are not on your calendar yet, the should be.

SOUTH BELOIT -- While a South Beloit 2-year-old battles stage IV kidney cancer, friends and family are organizing a fundraiser to help defray mounting medical bills.

Logan Windsor first was diagnosed in August 2016 when doctors discovered a Wilms tumor, a type of childhood kidney cancer, that had spread to his lungs. He has been receiving treatment ever since.

SOUTH BELOIT -- Linda Julian, a music teacher at Willowpook Middle School, was one of this year’s five honorees to receive a Golden Apple award from the Golden Apple Foundation of Rockford.

The award winners were presented Thursday, March 9, 2017.

SOUTH BELOIT -- Terry Meyers discovered his love for kayaking after participating in several paddle trips organized by Nature at the Confluence.

    "After the first couple of trips, I bought my own kayak," Meyers of Beloit said. "(The paddle trips) are an opportunity if you’re interested in it to rent a kayak. It’s a nice way to get introduced to it."

First snowfall brings 7-10 inches

SOUTH BELOIT -- Snow is expected to begin between 5 p.m. and 7p.m. Friday, Nov. 20, 2015 and continuing through the day Saturday. The highest snow totals are expected to be along the Wisconsin-Illinois border in the South Beloit, Roscoe, Sharon, Genoa City areas.

Four to six inches total are expected, although high temperatures are expected to rise back to 40 degrees by Monday.

Windy conditions will ease overnight Thursday as a low pressure system to the north moves off to the northeast, according to the National Weather Service in Sullivan, Wisconsin.

It will be mostly quiet but cold during the day Friday.

Then, a fast moving low pressure system will move into the region, which should bring our first accumulating snow of the season Friday night into Saturday.

There is still some uncertainty with the eventual track of the low pressure system, which would influence the final snowfall totals, so keep up with the latest forecasts.

Currently, a Winter Storm Watch is in effect from an Iowa county to Milwaukee county line and points south. Four to eight or more inches of snow are possible in the watch area.

The highest snowfall amounts should fall along the WI/IL border. Stay tuned to the latest forecast as amounts may change.

SOUTH BELOIT -- What once was a site of a Ho-Chunk village and then became a location for industrial development is being restored to a natural area.
