Manning honored for 45 years of coaching in Rockford

From football, to baseball and basketball, one area coach has done it all. For 45 years, Eddie Manning has impacted thousands of lives in his community of Rockford.

The City of Rockford now has two rock houses, one on the city's west side and another on the east. While the two officers who live there free of charge aren't keeping an eye on their neighborhoods, they're taking time to bond with members of the community.

A Rockford woman remains in critical condition tonight after her family says she was shot several times in the arm, neck and face in an overnight shooting.

As the school year begins, more community members unite to tackle the issue of discrimination within district 205. Alderwoman Linda McNeely hosts a second community meeting this evening to discuss segregation within Rockford Public Schools. After a successful first meeting last Friday, she receives multiple requests for a second.
