What a great story, thanks for sharing! Kudos to LHS cross country participants, parents andRead More coaches, what a great experience!

When the color first started going on, I wasn't a big fan. Now that the whole exterior is done IRead More think it looks very nice as a center piece to our downtown district. If you want to call that our town square (Cook, Church, Milwaukee, and Brainerd) it makes for a nice focal point without having a big court house like most squares.

I think it looks great, period...

By "accross the board" you must mean political contributions to members of our VillageRead More Board who support their agenda every two years preceding elections

FYI Kilroy... i am an outside supporter and enjoy all things related. it seems you have someRead More underlying issues or unresolved items of your own that need worked out. The gathering provides a safe environment for people near and far sharing interest in polo and sometimes better than a family reunion. Please reserve passing a blanket of harsh judgement ....Come out and have some fun! Audra

Lol....a sport of kings? Really Kilroy? How many years ago was that? Jousting was a sport of KnightsRead More and High ranking officers...now it's a show at Mideval Times! Lacrosse was once Native American now it's the fasting growing sport in america. Because you associate Polo with rich people, and although you would LOVE to be one but you aren't, you hold this grudge against the sport and everyone associated. So narrow minded and small. Kudos to Audra, for being big enough to invite you out and perhaps learn something new, not only about Polo but people.

Those reports had billions, BILLIONS of people dying of starvation in the 1990's - Tens of millionsRead More just here in the USA. So sorry to break it to you but the consequences are not even close as predicted. The earth is 2/3 water, there is plenty of clean water. Could you direct us patch readers to a few links on species disappearing, cause your frightening claim is BS.

BTW I am a father of five. We love to use styrofoam plates and plastic disposable cups. OldRead More fashion light bulbs, I have over a hundred in my big house. And my cars they are old. I dodge the pollution controls and state testing by selling my junk cars between spouses each year. The re-registration fees for ten years are cheeper than a new exhaust converter that costs thousands. The blue smoke doesn't bother me but I bet it bothers you when you are behind me at a stop light. I burn four cords of wood a year and now with the Village's lower electric bills I can run more bulbs for long and not increase my electric bill. I change my own oil and I dump it into the river, of course when nobody is looking.

I didn't say compassion was bad. MISplaced compassion that perpetuates the problem however is bad,Read More like when the Catholic Church goes to Haiti and hands out food and then tells the people they should have as many children as they can. Again, given 7Bio. people in the world, eighty percent of them as or more impoverished than the average Mexican, there is no limit to the number of heart rending anecdotes. The only real hope is to attack the problem in a holistic manner premised on a sustainable fertility level. Remember it took all of human history to reach 1 Bio. circa 1900. Now seven times that it will double again in the next thirty to forty years. Simplistic people, dull-witted people unable to connect the dots (like "Donny" below) are incapable of understanding the import of this demographic (i.e., if there is not a single event catastrophe there is no problem as lone as "I have mine"), but the dire prognosis it portends is grim.

My grandson, Salvatore Potts, is with the group this year. I am very proud of him and all the otherRead More volunteers on this work effort. I look forward to hearing all about his thoughts when he returns. Nanny Potts

That's fantastic, Nancy! What these kids are doing is truly amazing. I can't wait to talk to themRead More when they are back in Libertyville!

Wonderful! I'm sure this trip will change lives, both for the participants and those they meetRead More along the way.
