Jim Kelly, in his response titled, "OP not alone in not funding Boy Scouts" [Viewpoints, Nov. 30], offers staggering statistics. But what I find most interesting is that I do not see Illinois listed among the states that do not discriminate towards gays.
I noted with interest that you cited the Crandall Arambula plan in your comments at the special trustees meeting on Nov. 17, specifically endorsing the establishment of "historic preservation" as one of its primary goals.
I would like to thank Diana Oleszczuk and Josh Hawkins for doing such a great job with the Nov. 23 Roller Derby story and photographs [Ready to roll, LifeLines, Nov. 23]. Josh was especially brave for getting right down on the track with the action, risking life and lens at our championship bout.
A few months ago we had arranged to meet a British businessman in Oak Park. When his wife heard about his coming to Oak Park, she insisted to come along to view the Frank Lloyd Wright houses. Can you imagine the invasion of tourists that would overwhelm Oak Park if they could not only view the F.L. Wright houses but also the restored Colt building?
I recently came across an old Wednesday Journal. I scanned through it to see why I kept it. The paper was from Nov. 20, 2002. My niece was featured on page 53. Thank you, Wednesday Journal. I think that meant a lot to her back then.
I want to thank Doug Deuchler for the great article "Haunted hijinks" [LifeLines, Oct. 19]. Being a company member and a "Bride" in the "Haunted Lobby," it made me feel that all of our hard work was worth every minute. We wanted one and all to enjoy the whole experience of Dracula!
Oak Park and River Forest High School had a student discipline problem during the last couple of years due to many parents being unable to teach discipline to their children. It's a responsibility that parents should take before they send their children out in this world. Nowadays many parents do not take and spend the time with their children as they did years ago when my wife and I raised our three boys.
