Buffalo Grove's Top Stories of 2011

Dr. Seuss I am not, but I wanted to try something different for our 2011 wrap-up. Take a look back at some of the top stories of the year, presented in rhyme.


Two thousand eleven

what a great year!

A man went to heaven


When inflation hit cookies


Throughout the year

the law sure was tested


The Hipcheck16

An atheist balked


Traffic was snarled

roads made us berserk



We voted for Encore!

On American Idol


Residents’ fence heights

what a surprise!


Patch wouldn’t be the same

without news from you, too

Our readers provided —

for that we thank you


A skunk got trapped

A girl had a party


Cars caught on fire

A star trampolinist

went straight to the top


Your responses to comics

drew so much laughter

A mystery couple


So much more happened

but I've run out of time

Besides, it's not easy

to make all these rhymes!


None of us know

what the new year will bring

But one thing is certain

BG won't be boring!


Happy New Year, Buffalo Grove!
