Family rift

President and co-owner Ronald F. Rynes, Jr. talks about the park in 2006. Because of a rift in the family that owns and runs Kiddieland Amusement Park in Melrose Park, the amusement park geared for the younger ages, will close down. The 17 acres where the amusement park operates are owned by the founders' daughter, Shirley Rynes, and her son, Glenn, while the amusement park itself is owned and run by Rynes' other children, Ronald Rynes Jr. and Cathy Norini.Tribune photo by Chuck Berman
