NEWARK TOWNSHIP -- Never underestimate the power of a volunteer.

For nearly two decades, countless visitors, from seniors to school groups, have toured the grounds of the 50-acre park to see what Friends of Beckman Mill volunteers have wrought, including an 1840s-era cooperage, a dam and mill pond, a fish ladder, a foot bridge, saw mill display, blacksmith shop, nature trails -- and the crown jewel, an authentically restored 1868 grist mill.

On Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 26, 2015 and Sept. 27, 2015, the Friends of Beckman Mill will mark its 25th anniversary with a celebration in Beckman Mill Park, located six miles west of Beloit and planted in the footprint of a mill that’s almost a century and a half old.

ROSCOE -- A Roscoe couple is lucky to still have a pet after two coyotes snatched their dog, Buddy, from their front yard.

Rick and Carla Schultz let their two dogs, Buddy and Riley, out before bed and within seconds the coyotes had grabbed one of the dogs, they told WIFR-TV.

The couple spent hours searching for Buddy when a neighbor discovered the injured animal. Buddy was in bad shape, the Schultz's said, suffering from broken ribs, a punctured lung and a broken vertebrae.

The couple brought their dog to a animal hospital in Madison for treatment. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources told the TV station they get two to three phone calls a week about coyotes roaming neighborhoods in Winnebago County.

The DNR says as more homes are built, coyotes habitats are destroyed forcing them into neighborhoods and looking for food; sometimes our pets.
