Shorewood State of Mind: Shorewood Rewind

Let's spin it back and relive the wonder of the past week.

Once again, it was an amazing week in Shorewood.

There was so much going on that it's hard to fathom how we survived the excitement. It's almost like a nonstop thrill ride in the village that never sleeps.

But hey, that's Shorewood. If you can make it there you'll make it anywhere.

Let's look once more at the fabulous things that went down last week as we roll it back, just like we do every Sunday, with the SHOREWOOD REWIND:

Christopher Vaughn, the Oswego man charged with murdering his wife and three children while they sat in the family's sport utility vehicle near Shorewood, had a . A half dozen relatives of his slain wife, Kimberly Vaughn, came up from the St. Louis area for the hearing, which was scheduled to determine whether emails written by Kimberly Vaughn can be used at Christopher Vaughn's murder trial. The hearing was postponed because Christopher Vaughn's St. Louis attorney, John Rogers, didn't show up. The attorney got angry and hung up the phone when the Shorewood Patch called to ask why he wasn't there.

Freedom of speech. Why are you deleting everyone's comments about this moron. Don't publish articles about him if you don't want people to respond to his guilty ass.

Hi Nora, I just wanted to let you know I wasn't deleting the comments and it's an issue I am going to take care of in the future. Joe
