Each day, as the sun rises over the Illinois River Valley, light spills across Kickapoo Creek Winery's 14 acres of vineyards. Dr. David Conner originally began planting these vines in 2001. Now joined by his son, Rory, Dr. Connor creates rich, fruit-forward wines using locally sourced grapes in addition to the family's own grape harvests. Each wine brings its own melange of flavors and aromas, whether it's the tropical and citrus notes of the vignoles-seyval blanc blend or the norton's subtle spice and hints of ripe plum. The Connor family also makes wines infused with the luscious fruit flavors of everything from cranberries to peaches; and the selection of dessert wines includes bottles infused with chocolate.
Although the tasting room's samples lure many visitors, Kickapoo Creek Winery also provides guests with opportunities to explore its picturesque grounds. Walking trails can guide visitors past rows of trellised grapevines, a bubbling fountain, and even a bridge overlooking Lake Elizabeth. The grounds also include a handful of places for guests to stop and rest for a spell, such as the partially shaded Ruby Glow Garden with its miniature waterfall of grape juice.

The "re" in Habitat for Humanity ReStore's name is a nod to recycling, one of the stores' main goals. Each store is stocked with a rotation of gently used and discounted home-improvement supplies. That could mean wares that range from granite countertops to plumbing fixtures, all selling for up to 75% off retail prices.
The stores benefit their communities by minimizing waste and rendering home improvement more affordable, but they don't stop there. The proceeds from their sales benefit local chapters of Habitat for Humanity, funding affordable housing for those who need it.
Because contractors often specialize, homeowners are left working with multiple businesses for large-scale projects––which is confusing. Clark Professional Handyman & Services alleviates this frustration by offering a range of services, from flooring and plumbing to drywall installation, air-conditioning repair, and landscaping. If time remains after installing a new cabinet, the company's insured technician can complete more complicated tasks such as painting a house or removing redrum graffiti from the living-room wall.
