Today In The Port

STORE CLOSING: We spoke with the owner of JD's Pet Paradise in Freeport today, (Jeff) and we're sad to report that after 35 years in business, JD's Pet Paradise will be closing its doors by the end of June. Our conversation was rather humbling and we kind of felt this one in the gut. It's not easy talking with the person who started it all, as they reflect on closing it all.

We'll bring you more details about the closing in the coming weeks, but they are offering discounts on some select items right now. Eventually, things such as shelving, racks and other related items will also be available.

If you have a pet, if you know the family or the people who work there, if you shop there, make a point to pay them a visit. If you've never heard of JD's Pet Paradise it's a one of a kind (pet) place in Freeport. Stop by 1715 S. West Avenue. Let's show them some local support. 815-235-3812.

Oh, this makes me so sad :(. I would have bought from them, but my apartment doesn't even allow fish for pets and I was hoping to buy from them when I move later this year. I refuse to get my fish from walmart because they don't even take good care of them. Looks like I'll have to go to PetCo or PetSmart in Rockford now when I can get fish.

Spent Lots of time and learned alot at this place.....I also sold some of the bearded dragons I bred to jds.... Jeff and dawn are both amazing people I literally would stand there for a hr just talking and getting to know them..... great customer service and will make sure your taken care of....

Jeff we will miss you and the pets at the store , and we sure will miss all the great people you had working for you. The best to everyone of you.

Wow that’s too bad I think this is where my sister had gotten her hamster as a kid and it’s where Charlotte’s 2nd gold fish came from. They are such great people and were so helpful

I think someone should buy it and move to the mall😊 Would be great fun for all the kids going to the children’s museum!

Does anyone know if the groomer(s) there are going elsewhere? My parents take their dog there and really love it! Bummed to hear of their future closing 💔😕

Hey I just saw this and lost it. In the 80’s I owned an Amazon Double yellow headed parrot named Peter. He sang and had quite the personality. I had to sell him and JD found him a home. Would anyone know if Peter is still alive. Due to my career in radio I had to let him go to s lovely lady who took good care of him. This pet store was the very best of the best.

I took my Cocker Spaniel, Annie, there to be groomed for many years. They always did a great job and were very friendly. Sorry to hear they are closing.

I take my granddaughter here to buy fish. She’s going to miss them. Always friendly and helpful.

As a kid, I loved walking through the room with all the amazing saltwater fish!! And the big parrot was super cool .... and kinda scary!! Wonder if the parrot is still there?

Wow. Another Freeport icon closing its doors 😔

This is awful. This was the only pet store my entire family has ever gone too. I’m finally at a good place to get a giant fish tank and I was SO looking forward to going to JDs again to get everything I need. This is so heart breaking. We loved everyone who helped us over the years. JDs will be GREATLY missed by many. 😥

This is so sad. My favorite local pet store. Now where will we get crickets and fishes?

This is so very sad and disappointing! Where else can I go for pet supplies and live pets? Please don't say petco,pruces are ungodly and travel with live fish NEVER works! I bought my bunny,and birds from you. And you're my go to for their needs/supplies 😢😢😢

I've always loved shopping there

Truly a big bummer, between there and Wing 'n Things I spent LOTS of hours there growing up. :( Unfortunately it is a sign of the times, when most people would rather snag what they need while at Walmart or order it direct to their door through online through sites like Chewy. Most pet stores make very little if any money on fish/animals. I hope something else can come along soon to fill the void.

I just bought a little fish there. 😔

I got Jersey my guinea pig there 2 1/2 years ago. This makes me sad.

The Dog House provides excellent grooming. So sad to see this business close. I have spent many many hours there.

Sad. I use to love taking the kids there when they were little to see all the fish and little animals. And up til 5 years ago (moved and sold all of my fish tanks) I would get lots of fish and dog stuff there. Everyone who worked there were always so nice.

One of my favorite places to go when I lived there growing up and when I came back to visit.

Best dog groomer ever and everyone is always so nice

Very very big loss for Freeport! 😞.

Sorry to say Freeport can’t afford to keep losing businesses

To bad they couldn't find someone to take it over, or learn the trade and start something else very similar that could Supply the area with pet needs

On the course catalog it has pricing for non-fsd students, but there are no instructions on how to sign up then. Is it not available for non-fsd students?

Meeting with my partner to plan Starkfrau 610 Music Fest! All artists will be either:

✔ Texas Country
✔ Okie Red Dirt
✔ Outlaw Country
✔ Americana
✔ Our Local Country Bands

We're excited to work with the city officials and the Greater Freeport Partnership to roll out the red carpet for these fine country music fans in Pretzel City.

Keep your fingers crossed the headliner we have picked out works out. It is do or die time!

Local friends: this probably isn't your gig and that's understandable but I hope everyone can support our efforts to benefit Stephenson County. Us indy country music fans are respectful, fun, and loooove our music and supporting local communities!

Really wish somebody would find a way to dispose of expired EpiPens. Have you made any progress there?

I always take my to the Freeport Police station.

Would you prefer them in or out of the original bottles?

Just got my wife's wedding rings and two bands back after they were repaired here. They had to be cut off my wife's ring finger two years ago...my good friend Dean actually did it for her. It was near emergency due to extreme swelling from arthritis. He had near nothing for tools so he did kind of a hack job (couldn't help it).

They did a FABULOUS job putting them back together, re-sizing them and re-mounting the large diamond with a six point set instead of the four it was previously set up as. We highly recommend this business and would trust them to work on any and all of out fine jewelry.

This is the six-year anniversary of the death of another Trooper, and now another brave soul, Trooper Brooke Jones-Story, has made the ultimate sacrifice for people of this state. At this very moment, the men and women of the ISP are responding and focused on the job and mission, because that’s what Trooper Jones-Story would do,” stated Acting Director Kelly.

This was our highest selling item. We had two determined bidders and there is a story that goes with this. A man came in with the picture and asked if we could use it; I thought it would be a good add-on to the Silent Auction.. A couple of days into the sale, we had a phone call and message from the original owner. This picture had hung in her room as a child. She had married and moved away, leaving the picture. She saw it for sale somehow and wanted it back and put in a $200 bid! When I saw her message, I told her I would pull the picture with an explanation....Nicole is expecting her first baby and wants the picture hanging in her baby's room~~ Only when I got to the store...someone had put in a higher bid! I called Nicole and she put in an unlimited bid..which I stated on the sheet., hoping the other bidder would understand that this was an unusual circumstance. I was able to explain to her after the sale: she was a trooper and did not bid again. This is a photo of Nicole's uncle (?) picking up the photo for her. Nicole said her Mom would be thrilled to see the money going to VOICES. (sorry this is a bit long but I thought worth sharing) Congratulations, Nicole and best wishes on your expected arrival. You'll have to let us know when that happens (maybe a picture?) ... See MoreSee Less

Literally makes me sick to my stomach thinking about the evil they possess. How can you murder any child let alone your own child, who you are supposed to naturally keep safe and protect?? Animals have more protective instinct than people any more...

So sad!

They won't last long in prison some body will get wind of what they did and it won't be pretty for them

😠😡😠😠😠😠disgrace ... words can't even explain how I feel for they drug abusing parents who murdered their own child. Obviously they felt was inconvenience to them which is wrong.. I hope they pay seriously for this

I believe there was also a sibling in the house... what did that poor child see? And experience... and how dare she get pregnant again 😡

I feel so sad for the people who fostered him as a baby. It must be breaking their hearts to hear this.

Why give them exposure....

So very sad. I just don't understand.

Sad

Very sad.

Zach Kluesner

Make me sick to my stomach. Why have a trial. Just get rid of them

rotten parents :-( and what will happen to her unborn child now?

Hang them.

She looks like straight crack head and he looks like the cooker they deserve death penalty so sad

And this is why I’m writing a paper on putting the death penalty in full effect as we speak.

Perfect picture of drug addicts-I hope they die in prison!!

Execute

I knew they did it (Why)? Dumbasses Get what you deserve.

What the heck is wrong with people?

I hope they both rot in Hell!!

They deserve to die like they murdered him. No mercy.

Sorry bastards !!

My AAS in Early Childhood that I graduated from highland with , I found out a month ago that it isn't enough for me to sub in preschool. They want someone with a degree, not just an "associate" degree. "Congratulations" to you for doing a great job with the kids.

Way to go!!!! Keep it going.

And, I am very sensitive about people’s needs because I have a background in horticulture (specifically: turf, environmental and soil science, florals and landscape).😉

Yay!!!!! So proud of you Kendra Rinehart. ❤️❤️❤️

Kendra Rinehart I hope all is well with you. It has been awhile since I have talked to you (since fall classes). Are you graduating this spring?

WOOT WOOT WOOT WOOT Kendra Rinehart! Soooo proud of you honey! 😊👏

Thanks to everyone who came out to the library last night for our presentation, we had a record crowd!

We are so happy that we were able to digitize this collection of Stephenson County photographs and make them available to the community. Thanks to the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois for providing the funds to make this happen! The photos will be available to view for free, at the museum or the library's local history room, very soon.

At our presentation we offered a flash drive loaded with all 1200+ photos and the finding aid, for $10 each.

This Wednesday, March 27th, Sharon Welton, director of the historical society will be giving a program at the Freeport Public Library, “Looking Back at Freeport and Stephenson County.” The program is the final stage of a grant received in fall of 2017 from the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois. This grant provided funding to digitize about 1500 35mm slides, which were in the library’s local history room. The slides include copies of historic photos from the turn of the century, and original photos taken throughout Stephenson County in the 1970s and 1980s.

The program will include a slideshow of highlights of this collection, plus a game of local trivia! This is an interactive program, so come test your knowledge of local buildings and sites, or come and learn something new about Stephenson County. We hope it will be a lot of fun!

The program begins at 6:30. There is no admission charge.
