Did you know that a rare 18th century violin worth more than $280,000 was stolen last week from its owner, a music teacher in suburban Lisle? If you did, you'll be glad to hear that it was recovered on Wednesday. And if you didn't know, well, don't try going for it now; the owner's planning to get some more security measures to prevent future theft.
