Jim Marshall is one of Oak Park's greatest treasures. Big heart and big personality!

my (admittedly limited) understanding of the change to the law is that it expands the opportunity for retail sales other than in dedicated tap rooms - - Two Brothers has several other restaurant locations, - - so perhaps this one was expendable as they look to expand retail sales in other outlets - http://twobrothersbrewing.com/restaurants/

now if only there were a Val's Halla Foundation that could fund raise to buy her childhood home, or perhaps some interim home of hers and move it to that long-empty lot on South Blvd. just east of OP Ave, and turn it into a tourist site, perhaps we could be signing a different tune :-)

Perhaps the reporter could have looked into the state regulation that changed. Instead, a quick story was released with few facts. Readers deserve better.

So the state law loosens restrictions for tap rooms. How is this bad for the Two Brothers tap room?

I think their point may be that if you are going to honor a business owner like Val, than there are whole bunch of people we should also honor. There are no signs for Rich Gloor, John Sprafka, Bob Sassetti, and many others who had businesses in Oak Park for similar or longer periods of time. Wright, Hemingway and Julian were national figures.The most important thing is that we all remember Val for the great person she was. I always loved talking music with her. They should put her picture up at Village Hall. That is the least they could do. Ok, you can all fire away me.

So Kevin now you explained the inexplicable - the real reason why IMAGINE could not give an estimate for the whole project. Because by doing so the said estimate would clearly exceed the statutory debt limit. So how convenient that their present estimate is at that limit. This is clearly a full blown scam perpetuated upon the citizens of OP/RF.

I support the findings of the Imagine group and hope the board will responsibly enact many of Imagine's recommendations in the coming years.
