Did you see the Drew Peterson movie? It portrayed Hosey's office as a gleaming, modern andRead More bustling. As opposed to the stained drop-ceiling and general bleakness. Just let the Patch be the joke it always has been.

This guy wanders off and falls into a snow bank and 2 feet of snow cover him up, how are youRead More supposed to find him? And in answer to your "liberal statement".....I don't mind if there are cameras on every street corner or in stores...I don't mind if they monitor my phone calls...you know why? BECAUSE I'M NOT DOING ANYTHING WRONG! If monitoring the general public helps keep law abiding people safer - I'm all for it! More importantly.....maybe they'll catch more of the liberal constituancy doing something wrong and be able to get them off the streets and put them where they belong - jail!

Do you watch the news at night? Every story is of some thug doing some crime.....who exactlyRead More should I be tolerant of? Thank goodness we live in Deerfield where there's not much crime except drugs.... I'm always angry when I hear of some senseless crime committed and am looking for ways to get the scum off the streets to make it safer for decent citizens.

@ knee jerk. Although the upper limit IQ for officers is 105, the target IQ is between 94-98. TheRead More average IQ of a U.S. citizen is 100.

Does anything happen in Darien anymore?! I never see any articles about anything happening inRead More Darien, the Lion's Club pancake breakfast, the armed robberies at the gas stations, the 75th St. construction, city council budget, anything Darien related! How can you call this the Darien Patch when there is nothing about Darien in. Every other town or city has a Patch site that has articles related to their town. We get lazy editors who just copy and paste from other news sites.

What's a D-Bag Benny G.? Spell the word out for us. Actually why don't you give us the trueRead More definition of the word D-Bag so we can form a "factual" opinion as to who the real D-Bag is here.

She will have cost all us taxpayers a lot of money when this is all done. Millions in lawsuits andRead More probably a million plus in repairs to the system. I could be wrong, but maybe a little more training and evaluation needs to be implemented before someone is turned loose at the controls...

I say absolutely not. It presupposes that people will read the ads which creates another diversionRead More for drivers. Someone will be reading an ad and not see the next emergency vehicle, another vehicle, a pedestrian, etc. If on fire equipment, police equipment will be next. Then what happens when an ad sponsor commits a crime--will a cop be reluctant to arrest the person funding the department?
sklogw March 25, 2014 at 02:50 pm
How are people supposed to see the ads? Don't trucks usually have to drive fast to get to emergency?Read More I say go for it if the advertisers don't mind wasting money on ads that will probably not be seen. LOL

Arthur....the complaint about unions is that they defend employees such as her....she should haveRead More been fired the first time! She has people's lives in her hands....unions make it impossible to weed out bad employees...
Arthur Huff March 27, 2014 at 09:51 am
Deerfield, if it comes out that the union had a role in what happened in February being handled theRead More way it was then I'm right there with you. But we don't know that yet. All we know now is that the CTA handled it that way, we don't know why. For what it's worth, and I'm just pointing out facts for the sake of the discussion, in this crash and the one in New York it was a union official who told the press that the operator dozed off. Doesn't sound like they were trying to protect either of them, does it? In both of these cases they could just give us the standard "we are still trying to determine the cause blah blah blah" but in both cases they admitted right away that the driver was totally at fault. I'm not saying unions are perfect and don't obstruct weeding out bad employees, i.e teachers and tenure, but in this case we have no indication YET that it played a role.
Sue1 March 28, 2014 at 10:25 am
It would be interesting to get a copy of their contract. I would bet they have some sort ofRead More progressive discipline language in it, which would explain why she wasn't fired after the first incident.

WHY ON EARTH ARE PARENTS AND SCHOOL SYSTEMS STILL SO TRUSTING OF THESE BASTARDS? WHEN ARE WE GOINGRead More TO CHANGE THE RULES AND INSIST THAT STUDENTS AND MALE TEACHERS ARE NOT LEFT ALONE FOR ANY PERIOD OVER TWO MINUTES EXCEPT IN EXTREME EMERGENCY SITUATIONS? I HAVE SEEN MANY MALE TEACHERS ACT STUPIDLY TOWARD BOTH MALE AND FEMALE STUDENTS AND THE ADULTS PRESENT JUST LOOK AT EACH OTHER.....LIKE THEY ARE WAITING FOR THE HEADLINE. If I read another one of these on campus situation I am suggesting law suites against all the people who may have seen and or known of the possible threat to the student. Our schools are not just failing in education they are failing in safety of our children and the demonstration of good moral examples all around.

She gave you that iron lung story too. Somehow that did not stop you last Thursday when you wereRead More supposed to be on duty collecting the bed pans.
