A Will County Sheriff’s deputy shot a teenager who slashed her across the face as she and another officer responded to a domestic incident Thursday night in Lockport Township, police said. According to Will County Sheriff's police, they got a call at 7:30 p.m. about a 17-year-old wielding a knife and threatening family members on Gaylord Road.

Will County Executive Larry Walsh suffered a severe nosebleed while in his office but is now doing OK, said a staffer.
Will County Executive Larry Walsh suffered a severe nosebleed Wednesday and was taken from his office to the hospital. "He's fine. We probably overreacted," said Anastasia Tuskey, the county's communications director. Walsh couldn't stanch the flow of blood, said Tuskey, who noted the county executive has high blood pressure, which contributed to his concerns. Fire department paramedics were called down to the county building and they decided Walsh should go to the hospital. He was taken to Provena St. Joseph Medical Center, and he is expected to be released Wednesday evening, Tuskey said. "We just had trouble getting the nosebleed to stop," she said. "Better safe than sorry."

From noon till 3 p.m. Friday the grounds of the Proud American Days annual summer celebration in New Lenox was dedicated as a free day for people with special needs.

Frankfort resident Dennis Gladieux, 42, suffered a massive stroke, and the family risks losing its home. A website has been created to collect donations for the former New Lenox school teacher.
The old adage that someone's circumstances just "slipped through the cracks" is no joke for a married pair of New Lenox District 122 school teachers. Instead of taking the last few weeks before the start of school to relax and gear up for the hectic pace, Dennis and Jeni Gladieux, of Frankfort, are juggling a combination of critical health issues and facing financial ruin. Dennis Gladieux taught sixth-graders language arts and social studies at Oster-Oakview Elementary School along Cedar Road until August 2011. At that point, the district faced financial issues and cut Dennis, who wasn't tenured. Meanwhile, his wife, 39-year-old Jeni, is still on staff. She is a second-grade teacher at Tyler Elementary School. Like any other family …
