Janet - You should have thought of this problem before you bought your condo. I don't think it is the Village's responsibility to solve your storage problems.

It's now twice or more a week. Feeling lie I need to carry a stun gin

One more thing: Many of us who now live in condos find that we lack the space to store our bikes. Couldn't the Village discuss this problem and help us find solutions? We have given up big homes and have managed to downsize our living spaces. But where can we put our bikes? Any thoughts?

To Mary Pikul - Yes, Mary Jo Schuler owned Greenline Wheels which closed as soon as then Divvy bike program began. The store is still there, and I am hopeful she will reopen it. Mary Jo is one of the stars of development and charitable giving in Oak Park. Here is a wonderful article by Ken Trainor from several years ago, describing her efforts. http://www.oakpark.com/News/Articles/8-10-2010/Good_hearted-capitalist/

Right On Karen Muriello! I agree wholeheartedly and will continue to work towards voter turnout. I totally love the analogy. Bravo.

This is becoming an epidemic. How exactly do the police and community handle this without becoming overly paranoid and resorting to profiling? Community watch groups? I have no idea...

Democracy got us a one party state picking their chosen candidate forever. Do you really expect Davis and Madigan to start playing fair now? It is their dance, enjoy the music.

If we learned one thing, it is that the level of waste and tax money devastation must have to be epic before Trustee Button is ready to admit failure. She brings a lets go down with the ship sort of leadership.

DIVVY - another big Government program designed to pander to transportation needs - funny how an organization can tap into this govt angst to extract the peoples money from those who can't keep the books. At 1200.00 per bike?? for the cost of Divvy, Oak Park could easily have bought 500 x $200 bikes - maybe WORLD Bikes run by SRAM? And tagged them with Oak Park STickers and created awareness for the charity. FYI Divvy Bikes are not great riding bikes - sort of like a bike created by a committee who has never ridden one, nor cares.
