We could swear we've seen some of these people around here before.
So it's Groundhog Day. This whole week felt like Groundhog Day. Day after day we seemed to be seeing the same people over and over. Maybe our minds were playing tricks on us. Or maybe not.

But when they got there they arrested Amaro. Amaro was released after posting bond. A local man was arrested on a domestic battery charge in connection with an incident at his home. Joseph Petroski, 44, 106 E. Jefferson St. in Shorewood was taken into custody about 12:30 a.m. and transported to the Will County jail.
