Wind Turbines Coming to Prairie Stone


Off-track betting parlors arenAEt the only thing Hoffman EstatesAE Prairie Stone Business Park is good for.

The village board on Monday approved the installation of four wind turbines on top of a parking deck at the Sears Holdings offices at 3333 Beverly Road. The turbines will be about 20 feet tall and 6 feet wide and safe for birds and even bats.

Sears officials could not estimate on how much money from reduced electricity usage will be saved. The turbines will be used primarily to power the garageAEs light fixtures, with excess power returning to the main power grid.

Greg Strzalkowski from Sears said the turbines would generate 5 decibels of sound, which he added is "quite low." The HelixWind turbines have a 30-year life span. If other companies want to add turbines, just like any other site plan alterations, they would have to come before the village board for approval.

Breyer honors wife as he is sworn in

Norm Breyer choked up a little after he was sworn in for another term as Arlington Heights trustee on Monday.

Typically, trustees thank their families and everyone who stuffed an envelope on their behalf. They thank people who voted for them and people who didnAEt.

Breyer, on the other hand, mentioned someone who wasnAEt able help his campaign like she used to.

"I want to thank Roz, my wife, who recently underwent surgery and is doing much better," Breyer said. "IAEm happy for that. IAEm sure sheAEs watching right now."

She was, Breyer said later.

Norm and Roz have been married 45 years. TheyAEve lived in the Northgate subdivision for 40 years.

Roz has suffered serious knee problems for years. She underwent an orthoscopic procedure in 2006 and a knee replacement surgery in 2007 that didnAEt take. She had another knee replacement in late April, Breyer said.

"Because of all the scar tissue from the first surgery, she basically couldnAEt move her leg," Breyer said. "She was in lots of pain."

Now, Roz Breyer is healing at home with the help of a home nurse and, of course,

her husband.

After MondayAEs village board meeting, Norm went home to help Roz exercise her new knee.

"It was late," he said. "I remember falling asleep and told Roz to wake me when she was done.

"I havenAEt worked this hard in ages."
