It's nice to see we have and extra 100 million lying around to use for a library. We can't fix theRead More budget or the pension because we don't have money. We are being told again that we have to raise taxes even after the temporary tax became permenant. We have 100,s of brand new Police cars being stored because we dont have the money to put the electrical equipment in them with more cars on the way. This to me is like buying a new car because you are homeless and have nowhere to live. At first I thought this was a Rauner advertisement, it will be .

Sadly if this is the kind of 'news' that is going to be put into the Patch I don't think I'llRead More subscribe anymore. :(

That is sick. I would check for drugs again.

Perhaps this was all meant as a horribly misguided homage to Vincent van Gogh. In the days to come,Read More we may read of a lucky lady—or gent—receiving a parcel containing the rapper’s severed appendage and a note inscribed with the words: “Take it, it will be useful.”

I still use wampum, Beth, at the Indian Reservation to buy cigarettes. No cards, no taxes, no bigRead More brother.

I own a small business in Woodridge IL. The amount of credit card fraud has here has increased tenRead More fold over last year. I have to tell you that the card owner doesn't get burned, the card issuer don't either, nor does the company you hire to process and approve the cards. It's the local merchant where the card was used. Online ordering is the worst. The big banks say you didn't swipe a card, so you're liable, even though it was approved by that same bank at the time of purchase. If this keeps up, I'll have to go backwards in time and shut down online ordering. So much for a cashless society.

I think I will go back to using checks at stores and cash at gas stations. I found a gas station inRead More Eagle Rock that gives a discount for using cash and generally buy my gas there. Not as convenient as using a debit card but I had to cancel my card after using it at Target right before Christmas. What a hassle.

I fail to see what this guy's race or politicial affiliation has to do with what he did. He looksRead More white to me (so the "third-world" comment doesn't make sense), and the "Obozocare" comment is absolutely ridiculous. You can blame the video games, but this guy had an underlying reason for what he did. You have to have a lot of patience to deal with a baby. They cry. They screw up your life if you really haven't grown up. I was appalled that he is being charged with third-degree murder, but I don't think he meant to kill his son. He just wasn't mature enough to be a father.
tamarya April 19, 2014 at 11:33 am
Well pam that is where i was getting with my comment. Time people grow the hell up! There is noRead More reason a 24 yr old MAN should be too immature to raise a baby. Start teaching these young adults to be young adults, not 2 yr old babies. In high school is where it can start.

I blame steve for the cop on a rock- he should know better than to do the act while the squad is inRead More motion.

Thank you HF Patch for the OMGPD section...it's good to see you're referencing & posting newsRead More worthy stories from other Patch communities! Good job!

I didn't read anything in the story about the father. What does the dad getting lucky have to doRead More with the story? Is "somebody" a bitter ex?
Eric S April 19, 2014 at 10:51 am
Brian, the point of including the father is the family history of poor behaviors and the popularRead More opinion that money bought off the law rather than justice being served.

Doremus, MANY of us think the priorities, values, and laws of our country are backwards. However, weRead More keep getting out-voted by the wing of the far right that is notoriously pro-gun and anti-sex.
Harold G April 18, 2014 at 04:39 pm
Sure the police are doing their jobs and the pervert likely deserved to be charged. But it'sRead More interesting, see cops do not like when they are entrapped. Yet, they are perfectly fine entrapping others... One might question as others have pointed out, is this an effective use of police time/resources? And these "ongoing investigations" basically that means cops male/female are looking at naughty/risky pictures online.

NO -----SHE DESERVES WHAT SHE GOT..- She STABBED STABBED STABBED..she should have gotten the deathRead More penalty.....but michigan has only life in prison. Don't have sympathy for her just because she's a woman. She's a cold blooded killer and deserves what she got.
RON Ostrodamus April 19, 2014 at 02:11 am
The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment. The word "humane' never enters the minds of these cold blooded killers. What is going to happen if another bombing takes place outside of Texas? What is going to happen with the next airplane hijacking, or Boston?
DDB April 19, 2014 at 06:29 am

WCSC screen grab shows charges against worker.
HF Homeowner April 19, 2014 at 07:16 am
Correction "they need"
Igor April 19, 2014 at 08:39 am
HF the charges were dropped. There is a problem because and I quote from the Patch"Lewis saysRead More he never noticed "No Free Re-Fill" signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions" and "On-site construction worker Chris Lewis told WCSC News he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston weren't free."Where did you read that he knew he had to pay for it? No where in the article does he said he knew it.

City of Elmhurst has set aside April 26, May 3 and May 10 for Spring Clean-Up.
Joy April 17, 2014 at 06:50 am
Of course we would choose the option of paying double time to refuse workers and letting the streetsRead More be clogged with junkers and debris for three weeks straight. Who are these people running our city ?

Garry Thomas Howell April 17, 2014 at 10:14 pm
Gary, before you start calling people with sex offenders why don't you learn how to search for yourRead More facts properly. The link you provided leads to nothing and the name who have searched for did not match the name on the "Phillip" account from before. I suggest you get something better to do with your time. I know there can't be much for you to do in Elmhurst, but maybe stop gossiping like a 12 year old.
