Mark your calendars: ‘Rare tire recycling event’ in Lake County
“The Lake County Division of Transportation is hosting a rare tire recycling event on Friday, October 31, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., 600 W. Winchester Road, Libertyville.” A rare tire recycling event?

DAN MORAN: For those of us who once screwed up on the way to Champaign and ended up taking backroads to find Interstate 57 from the Tri-State Tollway, the good news is that the new $719 million interchange between I-57 and the Tri-State opens next month, or about four decades later than needed.

Moran: County spared major flooding — this time
DAN MORAN: Hurricane Norbert, or what was left of it, crawled across the Midwest on Wednesday, Sept. 10, bringing another round of inch-plus rain to Lake County. But even with some Lake County communities seeing more than a half-dozen days since June 1 with rainstorms that generated more than 1.25 inches, the sandbag beat has been a quiet one.

Moran: Not-so-perfect day for a picnic
Dan Moran: File it under the category of Things That Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time (and hope that the file still has room after all these years): A picnic at Jones Island Beach in Grayslake on the first sunny weekend of September.
