 At the Nov. 14 Loves Park City Council Meeting, aldermen heard from Mayor Darryl Lindberg that the City’s Water Department Manager, Craig McDonald, a former firefighter, was on the scene the previous week in Roscoe and saved the life of a 13-year-old boy who had been seriously hurt in an accident. “The boy wasn’t breathing and Craig knew what to do, he cleared his airway and saved his life,” the Mayor said. The child was airlifted to Madison.
