Thank you David...We really appreciate that. It seemed that most everyone enjoyed the larger thanRead More last year layout with a bigger variety of things to do. I think the music selections were exceptional with a lot of different genres that appeal to a lot of people. The Rotary Club takes pride in what we do for the community and we always appreciate the opinions. Thank you!

The only thing I would change would be to put. Elevation as the Saturday headliner instead ofRead More Sunday. The crowd on Sunday seemed a little subdued for such an audience driven tribute band like Elevation. Lots of people just sitting in chairs arms folded

Just to clarify, there are two Downers Grove kids fighting this terrible disease, as mentionedRead More halfway through the story. The lede mentions just one of them. For more about Noah and Laine Van Houtan and their family's efforts at fighting Batten Disease, see http://downersgrove.patch.com/articles/holding-onto-hope.

As a former Girl Scout, I am horrified at the change in direction of this organization. Adults likeRead More the author of this article who force their agendas down the throats of our youth are abusers. How about a kinder more gentle,and innocent little club, do good, be good, learn good, where young girls can just be carefree and don't have to be inserted into adults "hang ups" over the "unfair" life they have had to live! Here is a much better synopsis of today's organization than I can write: http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/03/m-the_girl_scouts_planned_parenthoods_tactical_arm.html

Nobody cares what you are 'horrified' by. From your link; "In the good old days, peopleRead More didn't have to lock their doors, their children could go out and play without fear" Sure... if you were white. If you weren't you didn't live in those same areas, and if you did, you worried about things being set on fire in your yard, or being killed by being hung off of a tree. "he noticed that out of fifty role models the Girl Scouts currently provide for their members, "[o]nly three have a briefly mentioned religious background -- all the rest are feminists, lesbians, or communists." communists? really? And while you may not have noticed yet, the younger generation has turned away from the atrocities and mindlessness of religion and uses things like rational thought and critical thinking. No amount of threatening them with eternal damnation by your imaginary friend will change that. You do not have to believe me, reality shows the downfall of those that believe in religion all by itself; http://i.imgur.com/VeVEQ.png Get off your nonsense already. There were no 'good ol days'.

Based on the authors commentary, I offer that since so much of women's inequality is based on theRead More curse placed on women that they can bear children, why not have girls and boys neutered at birth like dogs are at kennels. At the same time, we can also end the toilet seat inequality issue by another procedure for girls. This would make us completely equal from the start. Isn't it a shame that God made us so terribly complimentary instead of being exactly equal. After all, having a loving mother to come home to and a responsible father that provides for his kids it such a sexist-pig way to grow up. Since you mention the Titanic, you will also remember back in 1913, that women and children were put in the lifeboats first, by the men. I'm glad for the modern feminist training that has so permeated the minds of men and young boys that now we can get on the boat first. Including getting onboard before any girl scouts.
