FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION
Tinley Park native training to break world record
Jim Perkins grew up gliding on wood.
Rolling on eight wheels, the 51-year-old Tinley Park native has logged hundreds of thousands of miles at the Tinley Park Roller Rink and several other suburban hardwood floors since he was a child, sometimes seven days a week. But no amount of experience can prepare Perkins for what he is striving to achieve — something that has never been accomplished before.
