My sister Kate and I own Lively and would like to go on record as strongly resenting the implication we had anything to do with the kidnapping of Santa. We are sure Santa is safe and sound and happy -for now- and will remain that way as long as the village of Oak Park agrees to rename Oak Park Avenue as Lively Avenue. And make July 5th "Annual Lively Day". Thank you for the lovely article about our t-shirt. You have 24 hours to comply.

Once again DWYER chooses to ignore the Put up or shut up" challenge to back up his list of "smart people" words designed to destroy the president with examples and proof. For months Dwyer assured us that the phony dossier was going to end President Trump's term in office. I enjoy rubbing his nose in the truth he was incapable of seeing. His inability to see the facts may be an indication of why the newspaper industry has fallen on hard times.

18 stories there? Given the present composition of the village board, that's possible. Someone should alert the Alphawood Foundation who bankrolled the renovation of Unity Temple next door. It's investment would be compromised by demolition and rebuilding at this site. US Bank next door might be a willing seller, as it already has plenty of exposure in OP.

Apartments are small, would most likely be very costly to renovate particularly when you consider that the land mass is slightly larger than the project being built on the northwest corner of Lake and Forest. I smell a new development in the works but with Unity Temple next door i doubt you will see another 18 story building. Looked at this to buy years ago but Len Stann outbid me. Building then needed a lot of work and Mr. Fireball or one of his occupants raised pigeons in a shack on the roof, Maybe they were homing pigeons. At that time there were a few unsavory appearing occupants. Lots of potential with this property, whether rehabbed, re-purposed or a new build. Good luck to the new buyer.

What if we had an ordinance to require attorneys and accountants to notify their clients in writing that they do not intend to commit fraud with the information provided to them. Or what if the Village had to send a letter with their property tax bills that none of this money is to be used on fraudulent spending, useless consultants or lunches provided at committee meetings?

Leftists: You seem to believe that you're somehow paragons of satire; that anyone else is incapable of your alleged mastery of the art. Yet, you continuously flood us with this stuff. Did it ever occur to you that echo-chamber comedy may play ok in hyper-partisan Daily Show or SNL closed circles where the audience is already in on the "joke" and laughter is intended to serve merely as reinforcement of the party's talking points; but that it really doesn't click with anyone else?

Our three boys who attended Julian Middle School was basically a miserable experience. The wise people who thought it to be a good Idea to put 6,7,and 8th graders together in the height of puberty made a mistake.

Put the same effort into meeting the needs of special education students--their quality of life matter too.

Thanks, Christine! Interesting (if slightly scary, even in retrospect) stories!
