Less than half of the Oak Lawn Village Board candidates responded to an invitation for a forum in which to answer residents' questions about their stands on village issues.
Oak Lawn residents hoping for a mayoral forum between the litigator and the optometrist, or the chance to see how village board trustee candidates compare side by side, are probably out of luck. Sign up for the Oak Lawn Patch newsletter and follow us on Facebook. With the local election a month away, there’s a kind of hush all over Oak Lawn.

Hostess outlet stores fall victim to company's pending liquidation, Oak Lawn local businesses hold first-ever 'Small Business Saturday' local shopping event and Black Friday hours for area shopping malls.
Famous Dave’s in Evergreen Park reopened Tuesday at 2 p.m. after its grand opening on Monday was interrupted by a car crashing through the front window.

The combined Al's Beef and Nancy's Pizza at 5128 W. 95th St. in Oak Lawn closed at the end of business on Sept. 18.

Dyersville officials annexed the land in July. “This was absolutely a step forward,” said Denise Stillman. “We are still on target to close on the land at the end of August or early September,” she said. The Stillmans and the other investors, operating as Go the Distance Baseball LLC, announced last October they had a deal to buy the movie site, including …
