Home Newsroom 263. NoonDaily: This Week in Barrington Suburban Life

For today’s NoonDaily update, we have details about some new changes Shaw Media is introducing in this week’s Barrington Life newspaper, starting with a slight adjustment to the paper’s name and a new look for the cover. They’re now calling the paper Barrington Suburban Life to keep the name consistent with Shaw Media’s family of weekly papers in the Chicago suburbs. We can expect the same format and Barrington-specific content we’ve come to love inside the paper, but I look forward to seeing the cover changes when our copy arrives in the mail today.

Barrington Suburban Life Issue – October 17, 2013

I just talked with the paper’s editor Dan McCaleb and reporter Tarah Thorne. As they do every week they shared a snapshot of the stories we’ll find this week in Barrington Suburban Life

New name, still the best news

Barrington Life has changed its name and its look. Barrington Suburban Life – as well as an updated website, – is joining the Suburban Life family of weeklies that serves communities across the Chicago Suburbs. We look forward to maintaining our commitment to covering the Barrington area better than anyone.

Barrington Hills neighbors recount daring rescue

A recent Algonquin Road residential fire displaced a family of dog handlers, but they are now attributing their neighbors’ bravery to the rescue of nine caged canines. Barrington Suburban Life spoke with two helping neighbors who found themselves overcome with adrenaline, rushing into the burning home to unlock animal cages.

School Bully Plays hit on serious topic

Barrington Suburban Life joined Station Middle School students as they enjoyed a morning of proactive assemblies with one important focus – bullying. We asked students and staff how they feel about bullying in Barrington schools and learned why public engagements may be key to eliminating the problem nationally.

Cashing in

Video gaming terminals have become a revenue source for Illinois municipalities and bars, but those opposed to revoking the video gaming ban in the village of Barrington say risky video gambling could lead to addiction. Barrington Suburban Life took a peek into Hermann’s Rest-a-While in Port Barrington where bar owner, Wayne Krcmar said a year of video gaming revenue has been a financial windfall.

GiGi’s Playhouse gears up for grand opening

October is a month of celebration for South Barrington mom, Nancy Gianni and her international non-profit Down Syndrome Awareness and Achievement organization, GiGi’s Playhouse. Not only is is Down Syndrome Awareness month, but the GiGi’s crew is hosting their grand reopening in Barrington Square Mall, Hoffman Estates – just in time for GiGi’s Playhouse’s 10th anniversary! Barrington Suburban Life strapped on our construction hat, touring the new achievement complex and found out what we have to look forward to with the grand opening.

You’ll find these stories and much more in this week’s paper!
