Andy....and what is that going to do? Apparently, you think I am 1) a liar and 2) not who I say IRead Moream so are you going to actually believe what is printed or say its altered in some way? I'm going with the second option since your proving you don't believe anything anyone says. It's not someone like YOU I need to prove my point to. It's people who ACTUALLY CARE what's happened and want to see something done. I will make my call public record and hopefully others who experienced the same crap will do the same and this horrible problem can somehow be fixed! Everyone's eyes should have been opened with the incident at the school, unfortunately some people (like you) think that's not a big deal! I hope to god you don't have kids and have to worry like those parents did! Sad.

Contracting with Norcomm was a terrible move, but on top of that it wasn't even the best move inRead Moretry ing to trim a budget. As with any government, there is a lot of waste in Oak Lawn and that was the fat that should have been trimmed first. There is also plenty of circumstantial evidence that the Village took this opportunity to rid itself of a large number of union workers, and that is a goal the Board has had for quite a few years. This time, Mr Deetjen got his way.

Sarah, I hope the reason you needed to call 911 in the first place had a happy ending. I have hadRead Moren o need of 911 since change. My problems with 911 responders happened 4 yrs ago so it seems nothing has changed. My personal experience shows me these are not new problems.

She doesn't bite.

Please put a chip in your dog or at least put tags on her. She looks like great dog. Dog ownership Read Moreis a responsibility. Good luck.

I'm glad she made it home safe. Please get her a tag and get her chipped. I know some people justRead Moreta ke lost pets to welfare and without tags or a chip they are not always reunited with their humans.

BTW, that whole exchange between Mr Streit and the Mayor in which she referred to D3 as hisRead More"mi crocosm" and her assertion that she wants to be a "regional" leader: bad form, Mme Mayor. With as many issues as face this Village? I'd say there was more than a little Phelan/Deetjen language in that, except it sounds a fair amount like Rahm.

The Leaf it seems has really struck a nerve with the Mayor and her supporters. Even Phil KadnersRead Morecol umn yesterday, in my opinion, didn't work as well as they probably hoped. OLG, I agree that there are many other issues more important. The Mayor should start putting Oak Lawn First and leave worrying about the politics to her minions.

Kind of rare to find Oak Lawn-centric news on Patch anymore...must not be any problems left inRead Moretown, huh?

Andy aka Tom Phelan you are one sick calf.
Jacob Matthews April 16, 2014 at 07:21 PM
It has been my experience on more than one occasion.....if the Oak Lawn Patch does not care for the Read Morecomment a resident has posted....it suddenly disappears. On more than one occasion I have posted my witness account to circumstances that were falsely reported. When I commented that the story was untrue, my comment was deleted. There were no derogatory statements made, no vulgar language, no violations of social media etiquette. My comments were strictly the truth which contradicted that of the reporter. It is dissapointing to have first hand knowledge of political plagerism. I no longer have faith in any subject matter that is posted in social media. It is no more than vigilante justice orchestrated by the misguided.
