100 STRONG was formed in January of 2016 by a handful of bold men that made the call to ALL concerned men in Rockford that realize that we have no right to complain about the problems that’s going on in Rockford if all we’re gonna do is open our mouth but not be willing to lift a finger to help towards a solution. This call to action was a response to the several deaths, shootings and chaotic state of mind of the Rockford Youth.

They held a fundraiser event on Saturday August 17th 2019 in the afternoon at their safe house at 4111 Auburn, Across from the Auburn Manor.

They are a non profit organization that helps the community.  The fundraiser on Saturday was to help with funding the young bull athletics team. All donations go towards transporting the children to and from games and practice, equipment, referees, etc. Also for our community center that keeps our youth out of the streets and helps them and their families when in need .

They had delicious chicken sandwich’s and a pop for a few bucks.
We highly recommend you trying their chicken sandwich’s!


We sat down and talked with one of the board members of the 100 Strong, Danny B Worley.  He describes what 100 Strong is, how they help the community,  their goals and how they started, etc… Take a few minutes and watch the interview below.

100 Strong’s primary mission is to educate, mentor and support programming that advances the positive interests of youth throughout Rockford.

100 STRONG is a grassroots organization consisting of men and women with a common goal of helping our community by teaching, mentoring, empowering, and uplifting our youth.

The members of 100 Strong are devoted to improving the quality of life for African-Americans-particular young males-through programs focusing on positive social interaction, economic empowerment, mentoring and education. We seek to serve as a beacon of leadership by utilizing our diverse talents to create an environment where our children are motivated to achieve and to empower our young people to become self-sufficient shareholders in the economic and social fabric of the communities we serve. We do this by coordinating our efforts and by focusing attention on systemic issues that impede African Americans from achieving a higher quality of life.

Some of our main objectives in this Safe House are:
1) Crime reduction by providing skills and an open work environment.
2) Illiteracy reduction by introducing non-traditional avenues of learning and education.
3) Neighborhood development by inspiring community members with a renowned sense of self-worth, self-pride
and self-esteem.
4) Increasing positive social interaction by providing a place where youth can freely resolve peer conflicts in
a safe and loving environment.

If each one can reach one to teach one we can change our community!

Rockford Scanner™: Accident On the East Side, 4 Shots Heard Just Prior To The Accident




Update from a source: “Baby from accident is fine resting ,in a little pain with some bumps bruises”


Sources are reporting an accident on the East side.
With possible shots fired just prior to the accident.
4 shots were heard just prior to the accident.

It happened just before 2:30 am this morning near 12th ave and 25th st.

Initial reports said a car vs building, back of the school. An infant was involved and the infant was not breathing and the infant was bleeding.

The mother and infant left while emergency personnel were trying to do an assessment at the scene. Transported to a local ER via her own vehicle.


Admin Will went to the scene to work the story and he has worked several fatals over the years as well. And he said it did not appear to be a fatal. And he did not see any buildings hit.  He said it appeared to be only a traffic accident from what he saw at the scene.

He did say that police were on 12th ave and 23rd st, and someone was in the back seat of the squad car. So this possibly might of been an accident where the occupant fled, and police caught the occupant.

He said the vehicle crashed into a ditch area near 25th st and 12th ave, and into a part of a baseball diamond fence.

He said he did not see any evidence markers laying anywhere, so the shots fired is unconfirmed.  But several sources have reported the gunshots.

Police have yet to release any information on the incident.

Rockford Scanner™: Whats That Loud Noise You Hear?

What is that loud noise you are hearing?

A cryoseism, also known as an ice quake or a frostquake, is a seismic event that may be caused by a sudden cracking action in frozen soil or rock saturated with water or ice. As water drains into the ground, it may eventually freeze and expand under colder temperatures, putting stress on its surroundings.

A cryoseism, also known as an ice quake or a frost quake, is a seismic event that may be caused by a sudden cracking action in frozen soil or rock saturated with water or ice. As water drains into the ground, it may eventually freeze and expand under colder temperatures, putting stress on its surroundings. This stress builds up until relieved explosively in the form of a cryoseism

Nothing sinister, assures Elwin Robison, a professor in Kent State University’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design.

When the temperature plummets outside, so does the relative humidity in our homes as we crank up the heat. That dryness causes the wood parts of a home’s structure to shrink and scrape against one another, especially if those parts are under pressure — say, from the weight of snow on the roof, Robison said.

Sometimes the movement is sudden, causing a popping sound. Sometimes it’s slower, causing those creepy creaks and groans.

Robison said the culprit is often rafters moving against the top plate in the attic, with the plywood sheathing on the roof serving as a sounding board to project the noise. But other wood can be to blame, he said, even an outdoor deck that’s subject to force from the weight of furniture or a heavy barbecue grill.

The problem is often more noticeable in older homes, said Joseph Ferut Jr., a colleague of Robison’s in the architecture college. Newer homes are more thermally isolated from the outdoors, he said, and improvements in building science reduce the sudden movements.
