On Friday, February 24, 2012, at approximately 5:30 p.m, the Belvidere community was turned upside down. Brenda Gutierrez, 16, and Thalia Arredondo, 16, were traveling south bound on Rt 76 on their way to a basketball game. The girls lost control of their car and went into the north bound lane, striking an oncoming SUV. Both girls were announced dead at the scene.
Brenda and Thalia, we would give anything for you just to come back to us. You’ll be forever in our hearts. <333 #forever reblog rip <3 EVERY ONE PLEASE REBLOG IN THEIR HONOR <3
Apparently Ebeneezer Scrooge is still alive and managing a Chrysler plant in Belvidere, Illinois

“The Register Star received more than a dozen complaints from Chrysler employees or their spouses about the fact Chrysler decided to continue its second shift Tuesday even after the blizzard made many roads impossible to navigate.”

Atta way to treat the workers, Chrysler! There truly is no better way to boost staff morale than having employees keep working during a Category 5 blizzard.
