@ knee jerk. Although the upper limit IQ for officers is 105, the target IQ is between 94-98. TheRead More average IQ of a U.S. citizen is 100.

Does anything happen in Darien anymore?! I never see any articles about anything happening inRead More Darien, the Lion's Club pancake breakfast, the armed robberies at the gas stations, the 75th St. construction, city council budget, anything Darien related! How can you call this the Darien Patch when there is nothing about Darien in. Every other town or city has a Patch site that has articles related to their town. We get lazy editors who just copy and paste from other news sites.

Not telling - I would guess the scholarships could have been pulled for violating the code ofRead More conduct that the athletes are to adhere to. A very sad situation for all involved. A 29 year old man should know better than to have a sexual relationship with a teenager! I hope the police in the state he is being allowed to work in are watching him like a hawk as well as his co-workers that may have teenage daughters.
Tom March 31, 2014 at 07:47 am
I wonder if his parents came up with another $25K to bond him out of Orland or is he still in theRead More tank?
Sue1 March 31, 2014 at 10:17 am
I still doubt that she has lost her scholarship. Most likely just rumors put out by the people whoRead More continue to blame her and not the adult. According to the law she is considered a victim, did nothing wrong, therefore no reason to rescind the offer.

Actually, today (April 4th) she WAS fired. However, I find it a great example of ridiculous unionRead More rules that it took them this long to do so.

She will have cost all us taxpayers a lot of money when this is all done. Millions in lawsuits andRead More probably a million plus in repairs to the system. I could be wrong, but maybe a little more training and evaluation needs to be implemented before someone is turned loose at the controls...

Hitchens! March 26, 2014 at 09:13 pm
Had you actually READ the southtown article, you would have seen this.Read More "Officers found two holes in the ceiling and used an aerial ladder from the fire department to inspect the outside of the dome, where authorities found another small hole, Farrell said. Authorities are assuming the holes came from a shot fired from a firearm but do not have the capabilities to go into the very high ceiling to recover a possible bullet, he said. Orland Park police are increasing police patrols near the mosque because of the incident.""""" So unless someone "inside the place", as you so innocently stated, fired a shot that magically exited the dome, then did a U turn OUTSIDE of the dome, came back in and lodged itself in the inside of the place, then your "original" question has been answered. By the Orland Park Police, who went up to the roof, investigated it, and concluded that the bullet that was (and still is) lodged INSIDE the mosque's dome, came from OUTSIDE of the place. Now you can off your tin foil hat and move on to whatever you so choose. You have been publicly proven wrong here not by me, but by the OPPD. Anything you say after this is moot.

Wow! NSF and others, sorry I don't have the time nor want to put forth the effort of a "grassyRead More knoll" theory on this. When this was first reported they hadn't released the longitude & latitude (lol) of the bullet's exact entry & exit (yes this is sarcasm). Arthur I have lived in the Orland area my entire life and yes there are hunters and trappers in the area. My family being some of them. It is stricter now however every couple years the DNR also allows hunters (strict guidelines) to come in to lower deer populations.

Arthur....the complaint about unions is that they defend employees such as her....she should haveRead More been fired the first time! She has people's lives in her hands....unions make it impossible to weed out bad employees...
Arthur Huff March 27, 2014 at 09:51 am
Deerfield, if it comes out that the union had a role in what happened in February being handled theRead More way it was then I'm right there with you. But we don't know that yet. All we know now is that the CTA handled it that way, we don't know why. For what it's worth, and I'm just pointing out facts for the sake of the discussion, in this crash and the one in New York it was a union official who told the press that the operator dozed off. Doesn't sound like they were trying to protect either of them, does it? In both of these cases they could just give us the standard "we are still trying to determine the cause blah blah blah" but in both cases they admitted right away that the driver was totally at fault. I'm not saying unions are perfect and don't obstruct weeding out bad employees, i.e teachers and tenure, but in this case we have no indication YET that it played a role.
Sue1 March 28, 2014 at 10:25 am
It would be interesting to get a copy of their contract. I would bet they have some sort ofRead More progressive discipline language in it, which would explain why she wasn't fired after the first incident.
