In case you weren't already aware, one of the Rockford/Loves Park/Machesney Park area's greatest groups is turning 50 this year. Not a musical group, but a super-talented and dedicated group of water skiers who've been delighting audiences with free shows every summer.
You've probably seen the news stories, or the flyers, or the billboard at Riverside and Forest Hills. Emily Anderson, a 25 year old Loves Park woman, has been missing since Sunday, June 18th, and as you might imagine, her family is desperate for information on her.
Granted, your idea (or, more importantly, your Valentine's idea) of a romantic Valentine's Day meal probably doesn't include the words Burger King--however, in Israel, they're hoping a Valentine's Day promotion will change your mind.
