Our Views

A week ago, we chastised the River Forest Park District for nearly withdrawing its financial support from the Youth Interventionist program run out of Oak Park Township. Without repeating our points a second week, we are disheartened to report that River Forest village government has quietly walked away from this program.

The strength of this program is the solidarity in the modest shared funding from each and every local taxing body. Now is not the time to walk away.

There's no evidence that the strength of the program is in being funded by every local taxing body. I welcome the return of the idea that each and every local taxing body is set up for a specific purpose, and that there are some things some taxing bodies should not do.
