Who has even heard of these stores? Didn't Aaron Bros.go under in 1987? Who wants to take the timeRead More to hack into these accounts? Dummies that shop there don't have any money! Low-brow and low income customers who bring in their 5 screaming kids ( 4 are obese!) And their parents let them terrorize the rest of the shoppers. Free babysitting while Mommy orders an extra large Slushee for Remo and his ADD. Why ? Parents weren't parented either. Or its considered cute as Jr. has his meltdown with sticky chocolate fingers ! Count me out...

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.

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.

As usual, the patch is late, a day too late to make a difference and will probably continueRead More publishing this as "news" for the next 2 weeks.

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.

Public hearings will be held in early April and early May when the City of Lake Forest will consider a proposal for a Whole Foods.

And down the road we didn't want the tax cash cow of Costco, so all the residents of MettawaRead More received a nice tax refund on there real estate tax bills. Yet, now we are considering a WF which can't keep a candle lit vs. Costco's tax revenue...makes absolutely no sense. Kind of like the west LF train station...what a waste of money to feel a need to build a structure that grandios.

Brian L. If a Robber uses a Gun, Knife or is even using their hands to inflict death, the threat ofRead More death or serious bodily harm, than by Illinois law, that Robber can be killed. It is the Illinois Use of Deadly Force Law. Look it up and inform your criminal friends that YES... they do cede their Right to life, when they choose to commit a "Forcible Felony". Ladies... that includes Rape, Attempted Rape, Sexual Assault and Home Invasion. Study the Law, understand what the Use of Deadly Force Law says and print it out for future reference. Criminals do not have more Rights than you... they just know the Law better than you!
Brian L. March 27, 2014 at 01:11 pm
So you're ok with State Statutes over certain aspects of the constitution, just not with the secondRead More amendment. Right? It's ok that a state says you have a right to kill someone like the "fleeing felon" and "stand your ground" statutes, but it's not ok if a state allows people to ban guns from their establishment. Trying to discuss anything with you here is like arguing on the playground. You resort to twisting words often and use small attack tactics like calling my friends criminals and stating I defend Illegal Aliens to try and debase my opinions.
Michael Larrivee March 31, 2014 at 11:55 am
Hi Dan, I do not believe your comment "because of the Constitutional Right to Life, LibertyRead More and the Pursuit of Happiness." Is correct. I believe this is from the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence. In the fifth amendment life, liberty and property are addressed. Pursuit of happiness is not a constitutional right. "...nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Only 4 percent of adults and 4 percent of children suffer peanut allergies ...

If someone was allergic to nuts they would not be able to be on this board lol!
Diana Flores March 21, 2014 at 01:16 pm
wow I can't believe that only one piece of candy had a peanut out of the 24 candies in the box!
Jordan S. Zoot March 5, 2014 at 02:49 pm
Given all of the things I have to worry about today I am sure glad that tainted nuts isn't one ofRead More them.

I also have never had a problem with Jewel. Since Mariano's has been open for a while now, Jewel isRead More becoming busier again. Their recent remodel also helped a lot. The problem I can see having with TJ is the same as Mariano's. It's going to be packed, which is great for them but just makes shopping hard for me with a two year old. They have good stuff but I would rather not fight the crowds just yet for some Charles Shaw.
Linda February 20, 2014 at 01:25 pm
Personally, I hope Jewel survives. It has been my hometown store since its beginning. I haveRead More noticed an upswing in customer service and new item offerings in the store. They have everything I need. Sure, I will occasionally check out the "other" two niche grocery stores in town. But Jewel will always be my main go-to store... Big comfortable aisles, plenty of parking, and now reasonable prices.

I'll be there at 7:30AM! I am so happy that they are in our town. I do not have to drive toRead More Northbrook now. Great stuff for me a single shopper with tons of different meal ideas that i can have at home for an instant meal. Awesome prices too!

Bernard Johnson February 13, 2014 at 07:46 pm
Arthur Bryant's in KC is fantastic and I enirely agree with Jon Hall about using alder wood forRead More fish. BBQ'g salmon using alder is, well - simply outstanding / there's nothing else like it. You can find alder in some places on the North Shore [Mutual True Value on Route 22 has a very good BBQ supplies section]. BBQ'g is really pretty straight forward, you can do it on a Weber-kettle. Build up your heat source on one side of the kettle and place your meat {or fish} on the opposite side. Using one of the grill-surfaces that's hinged on both ends will allow you to add more charcoal and/or wood during the smoking process. The rule of thumb is 'low and slow', as in low heat and slowly. 225 / 235 degrees and for as long as he protein needs to be cooked to get its internal temperature right. Depending on the thickness of the cut [whether it be pork, beef, fowl or fish], the thicker the cut - the longer the process. Adding a foil disposable dish of water on the base of the kettle between the meat and the heat source can help keep the protein moist during smoking; of course, using a wash during the smoking process helps too - but, don't wash {or 'mop'} too often and do so without any sugar. If you add sugar or such like during the cooking process it's likely to burn and that's not one of the dominant flavors you want.
