WNIJ news – Tenants will soon begin moving into Rockford's new federal courthouse, which is almost complete. The building comes with more space than the existing facility, along with security enhancements. WNIJ's Mike Moen reports, the new structure will also include eco-friendly elements:
Sycamore, IL – An organization providing a critical service to victims of last week's earthquake and tsunami in Japan is visiting Kishwaukee College today. Shelter Box USA is a relief group supported by Rotary Clubs around the world. They deliver heavy-duty plastic boxes full of survival supplies to families affected by disasters. Each box contains a tent, stove, blankets, a water purification system, and other items to help up to ten people survive for six months.
NARITA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, JAPAN – Our group of 24 alumni and friends of NIU is safe and warm and together. The earthquake hit just moments after we landed at Narita International Airport. I was seated in the back of the plane so I know everyone was off the plane and walking through the Terminal on the way to Customs when we felt the floor moving.
