The name “Scotty’s” might ring a few bells for some in Oswego. Others will just know it as the name of the restaurant opening at 4571 Route 71 where the old Howey’s on 71 used to be.

His father was the previous chief at the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office. Many of his friends are part of the Marine corps. But Goins says that you don’t have to be a hero in uniform to be a …
