SYCAMORE: It was probably a large jumbo jet enroute to Chicago's O'Hare Field Thursday afternoon that passed high above the Taylor Marshall farm northeast of Sycamore.

Though invisible behind a thick layer of blue-gray clouds, the plane made its approach known with a low, painful groan that gradually faded into the distance.

That groan the one some of us hear 25 or more times a day has become a commonplace audio ingredient of modern American life.
