Just wait for healthcare.gov to give out credit info like it's free candy. Terrible web security.
Pat Richards April 18, 2014 at 08:59 pm
How do we know that Michaels, like Target before it, are not doing this themselves to get everyoneRead More to give up what little freedom we have left? Maybe News12 will investigate? No, that's right... News12 is just a glorified police blotter.

With prices rising in all industries, I call it the disease of liberal Democrats! And it is theRead More disease that will wipe out civilization!
mark April 18, 2014 at 07:23 am
When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Anyone but Phillips Chevrolet. I got screwed at Phillips. I picked-out a truck, put down a $200 cashRead More deposit and came back the next day to find they sold my truck to someone else. Cheeseballs.
Interested resident April 2, 2014 at 09:01 am
That is a shame Lenny Kravitz. I'm sorry to hear that. The patch says Fallon will buy the truckRead More for the rep (in quotes). My understanding is that he is going to buy a truck from the rep. He said last Friday night that he didn't want to make it that easy for the sale.

Question Lenny Kravitz; Did you get your $200. back?

Who cares what reddit commenters said about it? What did potential employers say about it????

Who cares what a bunch of reddit commenters have to say about it? What did potential EMPLOYERSRead More have to say about her idea?

Small clarification, please. Midwives are advanced practice nurses (not practical). AdvancedRead More practice nurses are nationally certified (not state), but are licensed by the state. Thank you.
Laura Giese March 27, 2014 at 02:42 pm
I used midwives for all four of my babies, back in the 80s. I found that my midwives seemed far moreRead More competent than the gynecologists I have seen since. This is fantastic news.

Only 4 percent of adults and 4 percent of children suffer peanut allergies ...
Vicky Kujawa March 19, 2014 at 10:02 pm
If someone was allergic to nuts they would not be able to be on this board lol!
Diana Flores March 21, 2014 at 01:16 pm
wow I can't believe that only one piece of candy had a peanut out of the 24 candies in the box!
Jordan S. Zoot March 5, 2014 at 02:49 pm
Given all of the things I have to worry about today I am sure glad that tainted nuts isn't one ofRead More them.

I thought folks were complaining that The Patch no longer had an editor? If there is no editor, thenRead More who deleted my nuts-&-taint-tainted remark?

Haha. I prefer this thread. Very nice.

I hope they're not using the picture posted, to find the ER, seeing how its an abandoned building!

Really definitely bad journalism or rather editing. This should have been caught before publication

And Lisle just keeps wanting more apartments.
George P February 21, 2014 at 11:56 am
Another grocery store in another town for Lisle residents to go and spend their money. Glen EllynRead More did not set up a TIF for this redevelopment project. They approved a sales tax rebate agreement where 40% of the sales tax generated goes back to the developer for up to 10 yrs, not to exceed $1M total rebate.

The 95th and Pulaski store should fire everyone and start over.

Abigail how do you understand the affordable care act when the government doesn't even understand itRead More did you write it admitted it you want the government to take care of you
jim February 15, 2014 at 09:07 pm
Abigail should discuss the ACA bill with Nancy Pelosi last I heard she still doesn't know whatsRead More in it. Perhaps Abigail could give here a clue

Billy, seek help. The assistance you seek is in the 700-800 block of south York. God speed

I want a heterosexual parade. Any business in Elmhurst that will sponsor a heterosexual parade willRead More get my undying support. ;)
Peggy Magrady February 10, 2014 at 08:33 am
How about another Courts where the Waverton was. Everything is on the south side of Elmhurst. TheRead More Courts is always so busy and the parking awful.
Peggy Magrady February 10, 2014 at 08:36 am
A hobby Lobby would be nice at the old Dominick's at Grand and York. We always have to travel so farRead More to find a craft store.

Stewart, I have no idea why Aldi's makes you feel the way you say you do. I LOVE all the money IRead More save shopping at Aldi's. Today, my daughter and I were dining in Schaumburg and asked the waiter if there was an Aldi's there, and he directed us to an Aldi's in Schaumburg and he said there was also one in Hoffman Estates. We stopped at the one in Hoffman Estates so I could get my groceries. I spent $63.00 for groceries that will last us at least a week and a half. I would have paid at least $30.00 more if I had bought those same groceries at the Jewel. I think Jewel is a big ripoff, and as I commented in another post, their meat isn't near the fine quality of Aldi's meat. Also, Aldi's corn-on-the cob is so sweet, you just can't find any corn sweeter than Aldi's. Aldi's doesn't try to rip off its customers, and they all have such a good attitude towards their customers, no matter which Aldi's one shops at. Also, their Beaumont coffee is DELICIOUS! Better tasting than any brand of coffee you can buy at the Jewel and at half the price for a large can. I don't know that you feel that Elmhurst is "too good" for an Aldi's or what. Perhaps you don't feel that way, I don't know; all I have to go by is your comment. I don't think we who live in Elmhurst have all that much to crow about. There are arrests made in Elmhurst all the time having to do with drugs, theft, violence, and some of those arrests are arrests of people who live in lily-white Elmhurst, where the taxes are so high, people are actually moving out of Elmhurst. I'll get off my soap box now. :)

Adam, I understand your concerns but driving a vehicle poises a much greater risk. Should we avoidRead More driving? The free market will determine the success of these type of places. It is probably a franchise who is trying to expand by playing on the hopes of purchasers of the franchise. Will it succeed? I guess we will have to wait and see. There is much less disposable income for many families in the current economic climate. Many restaurants are struggling as well.
D L February 3, 2014 at 09:33 am
Adam.......Wa Wa Wa !!Rub some dirt on it. If someone is afraid of getting hurt, stay home and stareRead More at the TV with video games!A little physical activity would certainly help our over weight and "soft" youth !! Getting some bumps and bruises are all apart of growing tough. And just maybe, they will have FUN too ! Imagine that !!
Adam February 3, 2014 at 11:13 am
D L the injuries that occur aren't bumps and bruises.. Everything is padded. The injuries that DORead More occurs are more spine and leg fractures/breaks. This is why the trampoline industry got together themselves and came up with safety standards to curb the astounding injury rate so they don't get sued into oblivion. Do what you want. They will go the way of tanning salons soon enough.
Ercie Berwick March 7, 2014 at 05:28 pm
A lot of people are pushovers for sight and sound. What you will see at Whole Foods once it opens isRead More what you see at Jewel and other supermarkets of that nature. Veggies being sprayed while music plays in the background, bread and muffins and cakes displayed in sexy glass cases encased in fancy shmancy wrappings. And the customers fall for this outrageous display of what really amounts to from ordinary products to products (fruit for instance) that are from "okay" to "bleh." It is amazing what people will spend for sight and sound.I stand by my burning desire to have an Aldi's in Elmhurst. No fancy spraying going on with their vegetables, no music, no nothing but low prices. And that's what I want for Elmhurst! I want an Aldi's without all the nonsensical trappings that cause prices to go sky high. I always drive out to Aldi's in Villa Park off North Avenue for my groceries. Why should I spend $100 for a week's worth of groceries when I can buy the same groceries at Aldi's for half that price? Doesn't make sense!
EMon March 7, 2014 at 05:53 pm
I disagree, Ercie. To say all people are paying a premium on food just for bells and whistles isRead More incorrect. I think the educated shopper is paying the premium on what you DON'T see. To say Aldi offers the same, is not factual. I'd rather feed my toddler a "whole" food rather than one that "might" be laced with a pesticide or dye that is linked as a carcinogen. I do agree that the world is filled with Sheeple that may shop there for its prettiness, but as long as I can afford that "safer" item to feed my child, I will gladly do so.
Ercie Berwick March 7, 2014 at 08:52 pm
I am afraid you are being taken for a ride. Whole Foods is going to sell the same pesticide-lacedRead More products that Jewel does. They may be displayed in a more glamorous fashion, but they will be no different. And don't let the words "Whole Foods" fool you. It's all propaganda. Everything today is propaganda. You will not find the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth anywhere.
