Thankful


Happy Thanksgiving, Rogers Park!



Thanksgiving

First of all, I'm thankful for my family and friends. Rock N Roll is in good health and I'll be heading over to Grandma's house for lunch.

I'm thankful for our community of Rogers Park and what I have been able to accomplish with your support and input. We have great neighbors, a vocal community who are overall doing what they believe is best.

I'm thankful for the success of my company, Bill Morton Promotions and the non-profit volunteer-based Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce. These have kept me busy at least ten hours per day with positive creative projects, which I am also thankful to have the ability to give.

Let's hope that there are more positive sights to photograph this Winter.

- Bill Morton

Literacy Volunteers of Illinois Scrabble event



Literacy Volunteers of Illinois (LVI) to Host 11thAnnual SCRABBLE for Literacy Challenge

Literacy Volunteers of Illinois (LVI) will be hosting the 11th Annual SCRABBLE for Literacy Challenge on Sunday, November 2, 2014. The event will be held at the Grossinger Honda Center, 6600 N. Western Ave. Chicago, IL 60645, from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m. 

The event will support the fight against low literacy in Illinois and the potential joblessness, homelessness and incarceration that can result. 

“The SCRABBLE Tournament is designed to raise the visibility of the issue as well as to raise funds to support our work with families and individuals in need. Low literacy is an issue that affects every aspect of our community though it is often one of the least visible,” says Dorothy Miaso, Executive Director of LVI.  

Attendees will have three options of SCRABBLE play at the event:
  • Compete one-on-one to become the Chicago SCRABBLE champion! Official SCRABBLE rules will apply but ‘Rule Breakers’ can be purchased. Prizes awarded to first, second and third place.
  • Set your own rules and play open games with your friends.
  • Play in an official North American SCRABBLE Players Association tournament! Must be a NASPA member; register at www.cross-tables.com.
Food and beverages will be served throughout the afternoon, along with a Silent Auction, a Raffle Contest and Prizes & Games giveaways! Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for teens.

To register for the event, visit www.lvillinois.org.

Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse 2014




In a total lunar eclipse, the full moon turns a copper red color as it passes into the Earth's shadow. During the process, the moon's bright glow dims, taking on a red hue produced by shimmers of sunlight seeping through the Earth's atmosphere. The entire reddening process takes about an hour; with the usual silver tone present before and then re-emerges at the eclipse's completion.  
These photos were taken this morning over Warren Park.
