The Concordia University men's soccer team showed the advantage of an eight-day break between games as they ambushed the Cornell College (Iowa) Rams for five goals in the first half of Sunday's game en route to a 7-1 win. The win improved the Cougars' record to 2-2-1.
I am writing today to submit for review my ideas for downtown Oak Park. I would like to start my input by complementing the members of the committee. They have met almost every Tuesday over the summer and will be doing so for the foreseeable future. I am continually impressed by the time commitment some give to their community.
I suspect we all have things that we don't talk about. I knew that my mom had a mulligan marriage for 6 months when she was 17, but she and I never talked about it. My cousin's daughter got busted for dope, but it was never much discussed at the family reunions. Similarly, no one likes to talk about poor people.
The coming transfer of ownership of the seven recreation centers from the village government to the Park District of Oak Park is good news. It makes sense as a policy and for park programs. It is also refreshing as an indication that the infernal hostility between the parks and the village has passed. Maybe the pissiness goes back to differences on Barrie Park remediation or maybe it was just abrasive personalities on both sides.
If Lake Michigan were to flood Chicago and Oak Park up to Ridgeland Avenue?#34;as it could?#34;I would hate to have to rely on the federal government for help. The atrocities being reported in the media need to be investigated by an independent commission to find out the who, how, and what was going on.
