Although Eagle Rock Community Church has shut its doors for good, there will still be church services held in the building at 14367 W. 159th St., as Parkview Christian Church purchased the property.

Homer Glen resident Robert Szajkovics was the winner of The Horizon’s Holiday House Decorating Contest in 2013 — and for good reason. In 2014, his synchronized light display has continued to flourish, with five more songs and a variety of new decorative aspects. 

The show — which takes place at 14635 Saddle Brook Lane in Homer Glen —  runs from 5:30-10 p.m. during the week and from 5:30-10:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

“Fortunately, like Ron Coomer, I was able to have my dream career, too.”

Newly elected Village officials had their cake and ate it too at a special board meeting called on April 29, when Mayor George Yukich, Trustee Beth Rodgers, Trustee Carlo Caprio and Village Clerk Ann Holtz were all sworn in to their new posts.

Christina Neitzke-Troike, the other newly elected trustee, was not sworn in at the meeting because she wanted to wait until her last meeting as trustee with Homer Township, which will be May 11, according to Yukich. She will be sworn in at the Village Board meeting on May 13.
