Halloween Safety

If you are taking the kids trick-or-treating tomorrow, take some flashlights with you to remain visible. Statistically, twice as many kids are hit by cars on Halloween, more than any other day of the year. Even with reflective costumes, it is getting dark early now, so visibility is an issue. Flashlights really help.

Another issue is that Halloween is on Friday, so you have more people drinking and driving. Drivers under the influence of alcohol have increased reaction time so...

A little extra caution goes a long way.

What he was doing was simply going to garage doors and checking them until he found an open one. Once inside, he would steal cash & items from the cars parked in the garage. It...

What he was doing was simply going to garage doors and checking them until he found an open one. Once inside, he would steal cash & items from the cars parked in the garage. It was real easy because people don't lock their cars once they park them in the garage. Moral of the story is that when you park in the garage, be sure to lock up the car, even if you lock the garage doors.

Bad Neighbors

I am wondering if the alderman or the city will ever do anything about our neighbors dumping sewage via a hose into the street drainage. We have complained and complained. So annoying!

  • "O'Connor is useless" vs "I found O'Connor's office to be very responsive"

    This seems to be the deal with O'Connor, you are in with the in crowd or you're not.

  • As I recall, that was how it worked with the former alderman.
