It's an odd announcement to make, with no mention to any tie to the community that this newspaper serves. Like, "Mary Trainor, daughter of so-and-so of River Forest, or niece of so-and-so of Oak Park."

Bruce, Ken Trainor's name is not in the byline here, therefore there is no need to put any disclaimer or clarifier with the story.

Mark: Most newspapers in my experience (for instance the NYT or WSJ) when publishing a story where the subject has the same name as the reporter or prominent member of the newspaper (like publisher for instance) usually include a small disclaimer in parentheses: i.e Mary is no relation to Ken, for instance.

Kevin Peppard. Perhaps you should check your facts before embarrassing yourself in a public forum. Mary Trainor is not the daughter of Ken Trainor. But even if she was, why rip on a kid because you don't like the parent? You are as bad as those who have been ripping on Barron Trump because of his parent. Shouldn't we applaud Mary, Barron, or even you when you do something excellent as Mary has done? Sadly, you fell short of excellence in your post this time.

Kevin Peppard, when you referred to this young woman as a "snowflake" was it your intention to insult her? The word is used a derogatory and slang term to describe an individual who is overly sensitive to criticism, thin skinned or discourteous.. That sounds an awful lot like Donald Trump. He's demonstrated those character flaws repeatedly while all we know about Ms. Trainer is that she is a successful student attending one the nation's top colleges. Best to avoid the appearance of bullying by posting comments that contribute to a civil discourse.

This is news? If so, I want to tell you about how, when I was eight years old, I found a plastic whistle in my box of Cracker Jack. Oh, I forgot. This about Ken Trainor's snowflake daughter. Ken also told us about his son who went from being a policeman to an Army recruit. Things usually work in the opposite direction. Keep us posted on your family, Ken
