South Street Trail Bicycle/Pedestrian Underpass Completed

by The Rullo Team

Local officials attended a ribbon-cutting on Friday, Sept. 6 for a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony at the South Street Trail Bicycle/Pedestrian Underpass.

Where South Street ends just east of Randall Rd, bicyclists and pedestrians will see a tunnel going west under Randall Road.  Once through the tunnel, they will go up a slope to the Keslinger and Randall road intersection, press the button for the walk signal, then cross over Keslinger to continue north.

As Randall Road carries 50,000 to 60,000 vehicles a day, having the underpass open will allow safe passage for bicyclists, pedestrians and joggers. Federal money made up 80 percent of the project’s $1.85 million cost, with $360,000 in county transportation funds making up the balance.

Will the Geneva Library move to Cetron Property?

by The Rullo Team

Geneva library officials this week decided not to move from its longtime spot at Second and James streets to the former Cetron building location on Hamilton Street.

The Geneva Public Library had signed a contract to purchase the Cetron Building in March of this year.

The Geneva library's website posts this simple message: "As a result of inspections and evaluations made during the due diligence process, the Library District decided not to proceed with the purchase of the Cetron property. The Board and staff will be working on the next steps and plans for our future."

HAPPY CHEESEBURGER DAY!

by The Rullo Team

CHEESEBURGER DAY, September 18th

According to Wikipedia: Adding cheese to hamburgers became popular in the late-1920s to mid-1930s, and there are several competing claims as to who created the first cheeseburger. Lionel Sternberger is reputed to have invented the cheeseburger in 1926 at the age of 16 when he was working as a fry cook at his father's Pasadena, California sandwich shop, "The Rite Spot," and "experimentally dropped a slab of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger.

An early example of the cheeseburger appearing on a menu is a 1928 menu for the Los Angeles restaurant O'Dell's which listed a cheeseburger smothered with chili for 25 cents.

Other restaurants say they invented the cheeseburger. For example, Kaelin's Restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky, says it invented the cheeseburger in 1934. One year later, a trademark for the name "cheeseburger" was awarded to Louis Ballast of the Humpty Dumpty Drive-In in Denver, Colorado. According to Steak 'n Shake archives, the restaurant's founder, Gus Belt, applied for a trademark on the word in the 1930s.

Batavia Sells Land for Speedway

by The Rullo Team

The city of Batavia agreed to sell Speedway LLC a six-acre site on the northeast corner of Wilson Street and Kirk Road.  The deal is contingent on Speedway getting a design approved by the council, the results of soil tests, whether Kane County agrees to grant a right-in/right-out driveway to Kirk, and figuring out how to deal with a wetland area.  The purchase price is $650,000. 

Speedway would also like permission to sell liquor and currently Batavia does not allow liquor to be sold at gasoline stations.  It will be up to the alderman to decide whether to change the law, according to Mayor Jeff Schielke.

Speedway LLC has nearly eight months to close the deal, with two extensions possible to resolve wetlands issues.
