Thanks to Donna Vickroy for sharing the story of Homewood resident Kathy Austin, who is virtually blind, and her guide dog, Solomon. What an inspiration!
What’s up with hearing about the Red Line closing for over a week? Are people so dumb that they can’t read signs posted at the train stations or listen to announcements? Why all the TV coverage?
The world would be a much better place if people were as eager to adopt homeless children as they are to take in abandoned puppies.
I’ve got a lot of respect for Chicago Bulls players Nate Robinson and Joakim Noah, but you’ve got to lose before you win.
They let kids pet the stingrays at Shedd Aquarium. Wildlife expert Steve Irwin died swimming with them when the barb stuck him.
The Rolling Stones will be in town soon. I’d like to see a picture taken of drummer Charlie Watts standing next to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. You can run the caption “Separated at birth.”
The third time’s the charm. Jamie Doyle is back as mayor in Manhattan. I hope he succeeds in bringing the village back together and moving forward, as he stated his goals were in his recent interview.
In recognition of all the mayor has done for or to Tinley Park, I think Oak Park Avenue should be renamed Ed Zabrocki Drive.
President Richard Nixon had his Watergate. President Obama now has his Benghazi.
I am proud to be an owner of a Ford car. It was reported that Ford is going to hire 2,000 more workers to keep up with demand.
Kudos to Hannah Jarman for her academic excellence at Shepard High School. You will inspire many people now and in the near future. Way to go, Hannah!
Whenever a tragedy happens like it did in Boston then they always say we’re going to have to step up security. Security should be 24 hours per day and 365 days per year.
To all Christians: I want to know if you have ever prayed for the most notorious sinner of all time — Satan. I’m just asking.
I donate pet food to the local shelter. They need our help with supplies. I hope it saves animals from death and is not a welfare handout. Make sure people who adopt can afford to feed them.
Regarding “start seeing motorcycle” signs, we’ve seen motorcycles using the center lines to pass. This guy on Archer Avenue to Lockport cut off a semitruck because he was in a hurry. Rules of the Road apply to all of us.
