folks the sky is not falling. I have a few credit cards. Once or twice a year either I notice a badRead More charge on my account, or there's one of these hacks, and my card needs to be cancelled. No money out of my pocket, and no real hassle, as I can use a different card until I get the replacement. No way am I going to carry around $100 all the time so I can buy gas. I do think that the credit card companies are going to get tired of the cost on *their* end from this fraud, and tighten up security. But I'm not going to change my life because of it. Just keep an eye on your account (I use Quicken so I see the charges the day after I make them).

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.
Amanda Horn April 13, 2014 at 06:53 pm
Too bad TOBS didn't have good parents to teach him right from wrong. Hating is wrong. There are goodRead More and bad in every group. I think I'm a little late. You've got to be taught to hate, before you're six, or seven, or eight...so the song goes.
Tired of the B.S. April 14, 2014 at 09:57 am
Amanda, you said, on one of your earlier posts, Amanda Horn March 25, 2014 at 10:03 PM "HowRead More miserable it would be to insist that everyone have the same lifestyle, views, politics, etc. as me." Too bad that if you are white, not gay, not liberal, or don't conform your beliefs to which ever way the winds are blowing, you seem to insist that those people are, in some way, wrong and full of hate. By the way, I have wonderful parents, who did teach me right from wrong. I just don't change the way I feel to try to fit in with the liberal way of thinking. Another thing that they taught me was "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me."

If anyone can make this work its Frank Gatto and family! One of my favorite restaurants but most ofRead More all really great people to know!! OP you will love it!!
Larry April 11, 2014 at 08:59 am
Good Luck to the Gatto brothers, make this restaurant as successful as the Tinley Park location.
Lester Scanland April 9, 2014 at 08:49 am
The point of this is understandable, but in all likelihood, the land will be sold and developed forRead More retail which in turn will be profitable for the community, not to mention the jobs it would create. Maybe that should be the primary focus.

Section 8 housing will be built there just like the one in CCH

Goodwill is a joke . They take donated items and sell them for profit. None of the money goes to anyRead More charity or needy group. The CEO pays himself $600k a year while paying his employees (who are usually physically or mentally handicapped) less than minimum wage people would be better off donating items to shelters or Salvation Army

Lenny Kravitz April 1, 2014 at 10:49 pm
Anyone but Phillips Chevrolet. I got screwed at Phillips. I picked-out a truck, put down a $200 cashRead More deposit and came back the next day to find they sold my truck to someone else. Cheeseballs.
Interested resident April 2, 2014 at 09:01 am
That is a shame Lenny Kravitz. I'm sorry to hear that. The patch says Fallon will buy the truckRead More for the rep (in quotes). My understanding is that he is going to buy a truck from the rep. He said last Friday night that he didn't want to make it that easy for the sale.
william savick April 2, 2014 at 03:35 pm
Question Lenny Kravitz; Did you get your $200. back?

Who cares what reddit commenters said about it? What did potential employers say about it????

There is one on every corner anyway! Shouldn't hurt them to close a few.
JusticeLeague March 26, 2014 at 02:57 pm
Barb - I was just going to write the same thing! They spent how much money remodeling and buildingRead More new stores in the past year, now they have to close. What a waste! CVS will take over the stores they close, I'm sure.
Tracy George-Levine Moorman March 26, 2014 at 11:10 pm
What about all these people that are going to lose their jobs, how insensitive!

Heather Knippenberg Kent March 26, 2014 at 11:32 am
We went here a lot when this place first opened, but then they kept raising prices and food qualityRead More went very downhill. Too bad, they were awesome for the price when they first opened. I heard from people that work at Home Depot that all the employees were led away in handcuffs?
JusticeLeague March 26, 2014 at 02:33 pm
I think the people from Home Depot were pulling your leg.
John March 20, 2014 at 12:29 am
Harry, what does your comment have to do with the Meijer article? You've been sniffing too much gunRead More powder.
The Sleeper March 20, 2014 at 12:47 pm
Meijer had a St Joes blowout sale ya know....
BKM March 23, 2014 at 05:10 pm
Easy on Vicky. These are some great NUMBERS of job being made available, but far from beingRead More raise-your-family jobs. I read between the lines.
James P. McMahon March 19, 2014 at 08:03 pm
Great idea. Let's ban tobacco and legalize marijuana. Makes sense to me!
Garrett Fifer March 23, 2014 at 05:27 pm
To all the people making the, "But they also sell alcohol!" argument. You must not beRead More aware that alcohol kills only a small fraction of people when compared to tobacco. According to the CDC, excessive alcohol consumption (key-word being excessive) leads to 88,000 deaths annually; while tobacco is responsible for 480,000 (almost a half-million) deaths annually. Furthermore, alcohol can be safely consumed in moderation without a large risk of addiction or cancer. In fact, alcohol (especially red wine) has health benefits. Tobacco has not one single health benefit and the most common outcome of consuming it is addiction, chronic illness, and shortened life expectancy. Tobacco companies profit off addiction. So please, take your uneducated comparisons elsewhere.
Greg Alan March 24, 2014 at 09:48 am
Not arguing here, about the facts of tobacco, and how it kills people. Not comparing alcohol, toRead More tobacco, & which 'drug' kills MORE people. People make CHOICES to buy these items. People also choose to drink irresponsibly, and kill, injure, & affect families, when they choose to DRINK & DRIVE! Smokers affect their own health! Which is more evil? I agree with Tony!
rita olsen March 6, 2014 at 07:47 pm
I love the concept of MADE IN THE USA... I will be shopping there!!! Good Luck.. and everyone stopRead More by to support her and the USA...

Given all of the things I have to worry about today I am sure glad that tainted nuts isn't one ofRead More them.
Oliver P. McCracken March 6, 2014 at 09:33 am
I thought folks were complaining that The Patch no longer had an editor? If there is no editor, thenRead More who deleted my nuts-&-taint-tainted remark?
