glad to hear this great news. Altho I didn't frequent the store much, I enjoyed Val's presence and the store stock. Bravo nice man and son.

I remember her from growing up on the same block as the Tetzlaffs. A truly lovely lady in all ways.

William Dwyer Jr. That was a very nice and informative reply and I will take it that you can not buy an Oak Leave's any longer like you can a Wednesday Journal. I like receiving the paper and also of course the online news stories since they are out a lot sooner. If you are still writing for news outlets, mention it so I can check some of your stories

Yes, great idea to sell equipment. Recently, our granddaughter was shopping for a trendy item: the suitcase record player. Also, if we want to keep Val's, we need to go in and buy something: remember, Christmas is coming and we might be able to knock a few items off our lists by just walking in there!

Oh, gee, sorry, McCoy. I just assumed it was OK to suggest someone "must be new to media" after you replied to Tom McMillan in exactly that fashion because he disagreed with you. As for your implied compliment, well, thanks. But it has to be stated that I reported for the WJ- as well as the Oak Leaves later- at a time when they were merely struggling financially, and not, as is currently the case, hanging on by their fingernails. The reason the Journal doesn't cover the many and varied events in OP and RF as they did I the past is rather simple- they have, out of neccesity, trimmed staff to the bare minimum. And yet they continue to produce quality and even award winning journalism. That's to their credit. THAT's what I'm defending, not any particular set of opinions.

Charlie and Lynne are incredibly kind, helpful and knowledgeable people. They were so supportive for our family in our times of profound grief over the past 15 months. They work so hard--they'll be missed in that capacity, but they certain deserve to spend time relaxing and with their family. Thank you, Lynne and Charlie!

Good for the Park District if they can accomplish this without all the ugly harangue that went on in public by both Board members and people/citizens who were lobbying for their particular point of view -theater which made the National news...not in a good way... during the Village Board's deliberations. If there was that much harmony for a diverse group of people to come to an agreement, everyone should take a look at the wording and the personalities pitching the idea of getting current ib equity. Maybe they are on to something good that others would approve of, too.

This is great news. What I would suggest is you also sell equipment to play what you sell. You can find lesser expensive equipment to get people back into records and they can build up a stereo system at home where music can be enjoyed. Be creative on what you sell so it makes it easy for everyone

Dwy, why do I not notice it anywhere in paper form. After you get done with insulting me, let me know where I can find it, I prefer the Wednesday Journal for real home town stories although I am hoping that the Wednesday Journal will get back to taking up more issues and less fluff with some stories. More of the way you use to write for the Wednesday Journal. Please be kind with the words you select to abuse me with today. I am trying to keep a more positive attitude, so be gentle if you can

Well deserved award. Terrific action by a firm family unit.
