Heather perhaps you should be taking some sort of medication.

So there WILL be a firearms corner? Huzzah! And a druggist's counter, as well? Double huzzah! I canRead More purchase some black powder for my musket, as well as some opium powder for my consumption, all in one trip!

Enough is Enough that had nothing to due with the issue at hand on Evanston Patch . Me and my husband own a Business in Evanston , Sad being we actually know him and he has done our business taxes , was our Tax Accounted until my husband saw how he was talking to me !

I really am a nice Lady , I just had enough and gave right back to him so no I not on meds , Just high on Life , Loving Evanston & my Business & seeing my kids grow ! Have a Nice Day

Evanston is over-saturated with restaurants now. There is new restaurant opening on every blockRead More now. It does not look like Evanston can support so many restaurants. We could use overflow in Skokie.

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.

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.

Only 4 percent of adults and 4 percent of children suffer peanut allergies ...
Vicky Kujawa March 19, 2014 at 10:02 pm
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 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?

The 95th and Pulaski store should fire everyone and start over.

Abigail how do you understand the affordable care act when the government doesn't even understand itRead More did you write it admitted it you want the government to take care of you
jim February 15, 2014 at 09:07 pm
Abigail should discuss the ACA bill with Nancy Pelosi last I heard she still doesn't know whatsRead More in it. Perhaps Abigail could give here a clue
Cat Lover January 30, 2014 at 08:42 am
Although I've never dined at Alinea, I've dined at Everest Room, Topolobambo and Tallgrass. TheseRead More dinners are over two hours in duration and as we know, quite pricey. Also, the establishments are usually small. It is unreasonable to expect a baby to remain still and quiet for over two hours, especially one as young as 8 months. Inevitably, the baby will disrupt the entire restaurant. These dining experiences are few and far between. They should be enjoyable for all. A baby or very young child should not be in such an establishment.

Guess here is that the Restaurant activity in Downtown Skokie will bring in an evening crowd. ToRead More quote "Field of Dreams", "If you build it, they will come.". Congrats as well to Libertad for their upcoming spot on WTTW's "Check Please", which should also give extra business to the surrounding restaurants that people will go to since Libertad will now be harder to get into. :-)

No doubt about it Downtown Skokie has great restaurants and plenty of them. The issue downtown isRead More what to do before or after the meal. Downtown Skokie needs more entertainment venues. It needs a plan. You can't just hand businesses a lease and TIF money and hope they survive. Bring in a cohesive group of businesses that will attract a wide variety of people. Unique shops, more bars with entertainment to compliment those we already have. Wine shop to boost the BYOB restaurants in the area. Art galleries with shows featuring local or not so local artists. Events at the Skokie Heritage Museum. Promote the Gorilla Tango Theater better! Dinner and a show packages? It may be time to go out and recruit the kind of businesses that will support the fine restaurants in the area and give us the vibrant downtown that we all have waited a long, long time for.

A nice brewpub. I'd invest with good vibes and future sales.

I hope that they could incorporate the Sharp Corner name into the school's name for us students whoRead More have the history. Something like Muslim Community Center Full-Time School at Sharp Corner.
Skokie Mom February 18, 2014 at 05:30 pm
I would like to extend a warm greeting to the families who will attend the building that so many ofRead More us knew as Solomon Schechter Day School. As one of the parents to whom this school meant so much during the six years that my child attended, I wish them a similar sense of closeness and community that we treasured there.
Steve Mottel January 23, 2014 at 03:22 pm
Better than more crime in the apartment areas. Maybe they can knock down all the slumlordsRead More buildings and turn them into malls, parks, new schools etc etc
Sandrina Roc January 23, 2014 at 03:38 pm
There's no connection between the new mall and crime in the apartment areas.
Elliot Spencer January 23, 2014 at 05:27 pm
Will there be a play area for thugs, vandals and pick-pockets?

I tried this place a few times, but didn't have the greatest of experiences.
Steve Mottel January 23, 2014 at 03:26 pm
Maybe they have seen enough crime thanks to the areas around there and they decided to close shopRead More for their personal safety??? I remember walking to happy foods in the past. Granted they are now closed but I would not walk that stretch of Oakton with any peace of mind nowadays......Damn shame
Oliver P. McCracken January 23, 2014 at 08:18 pm
Mr. Mottel, I feel so sad for you. You seem to be scared to go just about anywhere. As the youngerRead More folks you seem to blame for so many of the village and the world's problems might say, "Grow a pair!"
