The Best Western Hotel is now open for business. The 67 room facility is right off highway 75 and Willowbrook Road. It features a workout room, indoor pool, and conference rooms.
A Rockford man could be spending the rest of his life in prison after pleading guilty to robbing an Associated Bank. 22 year old Anthony Taylor says he was armed with a shotgun when he barged into the Main Street branch last October.
He stole about $7,000 but was caught the next day. Taylor will be sentenced in October, the maximum penalty of life in jail.
