We were so delighted to hear that Doctor Dietra (Dee) Millard has agreed to run for the OPRF school board. We have known her for some years and she is, without doubt, one of the great hidden assets of Oak Park.
If Italy, Ireland, Scotland and Norway can institute smoking bans in eateries, why can't Oak Park, and eventually all of Illinois? France and Germany have partial bans, and we found a no-smoking pub last summer in London.
I am pleased by the amount of recognition given toward a prominent long time resident of Oak Park who for many years was an outstanding teacher of history at Oak Park High School. His name was Morris Buske and he passed away on Jan. 14, 2005.
