Superbowl's over. Still can't get enough of football talk?

Well, you're in luck.

Sure you read our intrepid intern Doug Graham's story on Vernon Hills Democratic Rep. Carol Sente's proposed legislation to limit tackling in youth football practices.

Sente Monday announced she'll hold a public hearing on the proposal, which aims to decrease concussions and brain injuries triggered by school sports.

It'll be held at 7 p.m. at Vernon Hills High School, 145 Lakeview Parkway. If you plan to attend, Sente strongly encourages a RSVP to her constituent services office, at (847) 489-9909.
