Appreciates feature story about doctor

Published: Saturday, June 29, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

Thank you very much for writing such a wonderful article about my dad, Tom Vinje. You did a great job describing him as a person and as a physician. 

He really loves this community and his patients, who have become such good friends over the years. He always told us growing up, “I don’t know why anyone would ever want to move away from here. This area has everything that you could ever want.”

He really felt that way after we got another grocery store and a couple of new restaurants.  

Thank you, again, for giving those who may not know him, a glimpse of who we are blessed to know as truly a great man.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
