Volkmann first en- tered the jewelry business, thousands of Kankakee-land people have learned what it means to know Volkmann's. It means satis- faction after you have made a purchase, be it a diamond, a watch, silverware or jewelry; confidence that a reliable firm stands be- hind its merchandise. This makes Volk- mann's more than just a jewelry store. In keeping with these ideals, Walter C. Volkmann and ...

Ten letters and a comma printed across the front of a shirt is a simple enough starting place for an underground movement. The Kankakee shirts are our fabric jumper cables for an authentic Illinois city on the verge of turning over and rumbling to life like never before. In the last couple months I have gone from being the "Unofficial Kankakee Ambassador" (a title I gave myself in a not-so-serious way) to someone who has official responsibilities and duties. I am now wearing a few hats. Generally, I hate this sort of "hat" analogy, I like to consider it a hat, glove and scarf combo that go together pretty well. market research, surveys and trends

Indiana’s 1,008 townships have amassed more than $200 million in taxpayer money that is stashed in reserves, yet no one — township officials, state officials or lawmakers — has made any effort to curb the property tax collections that generated the surplus. A review by The Indianapolis Star shows that in some cases, the reserves represent more than 10 times the township’s annual budget — far more than necessary for even the most prudent rainy day fund, according to financial experts. And, despite tough times, the massive reserve includes $50 million in unspent money that was raised specifically to ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Catch'em if you can
The NIAA's fishing derby provides anglers with family fun while supporting efforts to increase stewardship on the Kankakee River. For 10 days each summer, sport fish in the Illinois portion of the Kankakee River are practically worth their weight in gold. Well okay, not all of them. But if you're lucky enough to land a fish with a tag for the Kankakee River Valley Fishing Derby, that freshwater beauty is worth a minimum of $500 in cash, merchandise or services.
