Village Market Grocery Store


A Delapidated site has been rejuvenated.

The old Jewel has a new name and a new look, the Signage was just put up Yesterday 11-06 and the Parking Lot was being repaved today, this is looking pretty good.

I have to congratulate all of those envolved  from the Architectual Design, to the Landscaping and the Parking lot!   “What an Improvement”.

We went from a run down, strobe light, picture taking Eye sore to a pleasantly appealing Food Market.

A 30-year-old McHenry woman was charged Monday with identity theft, accused of stealing someone’s personal information to get a job, Carpentersville police said.

Adriana E. Campos of 1615 Knoll Ave. was charged with possession of fraudulent identification and financial identity theft, police said.

A 34-year-old Belvidere woman recently contacted Carpentersville police after she got a bill for more than $300 from the Internal Revenue Service for nonreported earnings from Trim Rite Industries, 801 Commerce Parkway, Carpentersville.

The victim said she never worked for the company and felt someone was using her identity, police said.

Two detectives went to Trim Rite and recovered a fraudulent resident card given to Trim Rite when Campos started her employment on Oct. 18, 2005, police said.

The detectives then arrested Campos in McHenry. Campos said in court she is not a U.S. citizen and has a 3-year-old child at home.

Furthermore, Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a hold on her for possible deportation.

Campos was unable to post a $1,500 bond and was taken to the Kane County jail.

Campos’ next court date is Nov. 29 at the Kane County Judicial Center.

Guest columnists coming soon!

Coming your way soon, we’ll have local officials from around Carpentersville, Dundee Township and Kane County, give their take on local issues and happenings.

We’ll allow others to offer their point of views on the same subject, but must sign their REAL NAME to their posts. This should bring more civility to the debate on hand and less slanderous and malicious mudslinging and rumors, as has happened over at the “other” Carpentersville’s website.

C’Ville residents challenging village’s animal code

Should Carpentersville regulate the number of Domestic animals you may have by size,  type or is a Quantity restriction good enough?

Carpentersville dog owners have adopted a pack mentality to challenge the village’s restrictive ownership rules.

About a half dozen residents signed a letter last week addressed to village board members, asking trustees to reconsider the village code that limits the number of dogs per single-family home to two, and to one for apartments or condominiums.

A group of residents also plans to address trustees at tonight’s village board meeting, where board members will discuss the issue.

Residents argue allowing at least two dogs for multifamily units benefits both the animal and the owner.

“This is for small dogs mainly because dogs are pack animals,” said Lisa Kosel, coordinator of the petition to the village. “Small dogs can be very hyper, and they get depressed and lonely when they are alone.”

Kosel also said many residents move into the village unaware of the restrictions, which are the most limiting compared to surrounding communities.

“Some people can give up a pet very easily, while some people are very attached to them,” said Kosel, who gave up her Yorkie, Symon, when she moved to the Gleneagle Farm subdivision about 18 months ago. “It’s like giving up a child.”

Surrounding communities such as Algonquin, East Dundee, West Dundee, Huntley and Lake in the Hills make no distinction from the number of animals permitted in single-family residences from those permitted in multifamily units. Numbers range from two to four pets per household.

Only Gilberts sets different limits for single-family homes and multifamily units.

Trustee Paul Humpfer said he supports increasing the number of dogs allowed at the village code level, leaving homeowners associations to set their own rules.

“We can change the number of dogs by ordinance and if the multifamily housing unit is controlled, the association has the flexibility to set their own maximum,” Humpfer said.

Village President Bill Sarto said though he has not yet decided his vote, he does have some concerns.

“Some dogs are more aggressive and harder to handle than other breeds,” Sarto said. “That could cause a threat to the community if you get too many of those kinds of breeds together in one neighborhood.”

The board will discuss the item at tonight’s board meeting, 7:30 p.m. in the board room of village hall, 1200 LW Besinger Drive.
