Decades of dancing

Fun on the Fourth

A look into private investigations
Local detective Dave Hertog has been working out of the area for several years, but many would never know. His business is top secret. Hertog, who helps individuals and large businesses, offers a peek into what he does – everything from finding birth parents to date screening.

Heartbeats for Sam
More than $18,000 has been raised for a Barrington family in need. Sam Donnelly, 23, has had two open heart surgeries as an infant and started experiencing rapid heartbeats and discomfort lately. Spending time at Lurie Children’s Hospital, in Chicago, Sam will soon undergo another surgery. Donnelly is one of eight children. Learn how you can help in this week’s Barrington Suburban Life.

No More Perfect Parents
The Lutheran Church of Atonement, in Barrington, is hosting a special seminar to humanize parenting. Discounted tickets are now on sale. Parents who have already attended the seminar elsewhere in the U.S. said that the speakers embrace the average family model. Pastor Jane Kunzie-Brunner said the purpose of the 500-person seminar is to open up the church to the greater community and help anyone who deals with children – parents, grandparents, preschool staff – you name it.
