There is an election this year in November and we need turn turn out in record numbers. You canRead Morevote early, you can vote by mail, you can vote Rep. Scott Drury out of office. It's Time, to take Springfield back from the people who have ruined this state and set it on a course of financial disaster! It is time to replace them with people who will respect our Constitutional Rights.

When will the guy who writes this stuff everyday "get it" that we all get the point, Read Morethat he is pushing people away from his pro gun thing because he sounds like a gun loving maniac who cares about nothing else and has no interests other than eventually wanting to shoot somebody somewhere, probably someone in highland park because he is so incredibly jealous of the financial, educational, and business successes that stem from there. He just can't handle it. I would be for legalizing guns just hear another subject on here, this horse has been dead a while. My guess is if this man gets his way, he still won't like highland park. Which is fine because he doesn't live shop work or vote in HP.

Total agree Deerfield Resident. But, you'd better watch out, the area "liberals" willRead Morenot ice your post and accuse YOU of all sorts of foolishness if you subscribe to knocking or criticizing "the agenda"...which has and always will be all that's "loose" and inappropriate and serves and compensates certain individuals and organizations in the community (ESPECIALLY in the public school district) will be tolerated and even praised...anything and everything in opposition shall be condemned...to bad for the poor souls...their time will come...Parents REALLY taking time with their children? They're too wrapped up in their own achievements and pretend to care by overindulgence and/or convincing themselves that leaving the kids on their own somehow "matures" them and helps them "figure life out on their own"...BS! That's why we see those same DEERFIELD kids ( elementary and middle school) hanging out at the malls in the baby changing areas and parking lots smoking, making out and drinking after "mommy in her giant Lexus SUV" dropped them off to see a movie and get a bite while she goes off to shop or whatever! Typical North Shore behavior. These are the same type of parents that invest highly in the "professionals" that come and speak at our local schools. It's disgusting to say the least...

I am planning to attend - it sounds like an important topic for all parents by an experiencedRead Morespeake r. I find the comments above very disturbing not because they are completely baseless (they are not) but because they are filled with such loathing and anger. Sure there are parents in this town (and most towns) where parents spend less time with their kids than others think they should. And affluence can result in over-indulgence. But don't judge - some of the most concerned, involved parents can raise kids who don't "buy in" or follow their rules and examples. And to those parents who should recognize themselves in your critical characterization, I hope you (and all of us) can at least think about ways in which we can be better parents. The ultimate goal is to raise good, productive, happy kids.

Andrea, the truth can hurt.....let's not give upon these kids but lets face theRead Morefacts..."Dog&qu ot; is right these are the same people that hire these professionals after their kid needs help because mommy and daddy bought their kid everything to keep up with the jones' but really did nothing to "be" with their child, show an interest, go to their events, spend time with them at dinner etc. It's actually really simple ...put your child first, let them know they come first and then expect them to show respect in return and most of all, have them want to make you proud of them for the effort you put in and you'll raise great kids. The problem is, the effort isn't there from the parents and it stops there. Then you get these professionals telling you what you should have done and by then it's too late.
