Tell me salaries of professional sports aren’t completely insane. Tony Romo just signed a six-year contract for $120 million. He already had back surgery in December. One good shot at his back surgery and he will be history. Talk about salary madness and wasted money. Where and when does this madness end? A regular working man can’t afford to park and enter into a sports event. The prices are outrageous. As for me, I’m concerned that they can stick their madness up where the sun don’t shine. Joe
Regarding the anonymous commenter on the Academy Awards, who’s comment rated a picture no less, what about “Gravity” or “Saving Mr. Banks,” and from 2 years ago “The Artist?” Truly remarkable films, worthy of awards. You can’t judge the industry by only watching the film’s commercials on TV. To me, Ellen is the best MC the awards has ever had. Gary from Oak Forest
Regarding the ban on puppy mills: I don’t like the people that do it, but it seems no is thinking about what’s going to happen to the animals.
Who cares about the Academy Awards? I think all movies nowadays are raunchy and violent and have profane language. None of them should be rewarded.
I’m sending positive vibes to former St. Rita High School coach Jim Angsten and his wife, Pam, for all they and their family are dealing with since his diagnosis of Lou Gehrig’s disease. Stay strong.
Thanks to all who put together the Manhattan Irish Fest. From the parade to the entertainment, the event was a great way to kick off what hopefully will feel like spring sooner than later.
To Illinois and Cook County: Please, with all the money that you tax us on over the course of the year, please, please pave all these potholes.
I think the Pickwick Society Tearoom, Gifts & Antiques in Frankfort is a Southland hidden gem. Kudos to owner Cindy Vassell for her well-deserved Lincoln Award from the Illinois Office of Tourism.
I went to jog at 6:55 a.m. at Crestwood’s Rubio Woods. I didn’t get 100 feet before I saw three coyotes. It scared me. We have to do something. These coyotes are all over and worse than the deer.
Every American should be extremely proud of our American Olympians who have dedicated their lives to performing in their sport against the world.
Crete-Monee High School parents were upset because kids couldn’t use cell phones in school. Unless it’s an emergency, shouldn’t they be listening to the teacher, not fumbling with a device?
Congrats to Kendall Coyne from Palos Heights and the U.S. women’s Olympic hockey team on their silver medal. Good job! Thanks for the excitement.
Bravo to John Bartgen, who organized the Thundering Eagle Ice Fishing Derby on Crystal Lake with Jim Corcoran. These bass fishing club coaches make Consolidated High School District 230 proud.
If you like jazz radio then try WDCB-FM (90.9). They play wonderful jazz. Rick O’Dell has a “Sunday Jazz Brunch” program every week.
It still amazes me when these jackpot lotteries get big and everyone rushes to get their tickets. Where are they coming up with the money? Hmmm.
