Upcoming Halloween posts for Oak Park, Il blog

I have partnered up with another follower for Halloween postings I have ten so far for the month but I have via email and social media am doing very, very generic Halloween wallpapers for October. Maybe I should say that I am creating a mess and they are helping to clean it up. There will be again, postings to links to different Halloween related sites that will help all of us celebrate the Halloween season in boring Oak park, Il.

There will be something for adults and kids but mostly adults because we should have fun with this season as well. It is truly the real season of giving I will probably be buying tons of candy and standing outside my apartment building giving kids candy as they walk by in full costume (maybe not!). I think that Halloween is important as a season because it stirs the imagination in children and adults alike, dressing up and being something different is allowed during this one day and night that is usually (still) not welcomed the rest of the year.

I hope you enjoy the season!

Security cameras needed at OPRF.. why??

Every time I turn around I hear that the local high school needs something, if it is not a swimming pool, it’s a garage, if it’s not a garage, then the high school needs ovens and security cameras. I mean damn if it needs all this crap just tear the whole thing down! The construction of a new school will take about 5 years so send those kids to like Bellwood or CPS for a while, that will toughen them up to the point they wont need crossing guards at nearly every corner, and then bamm put the class of 2026 into the new school and get it over with.

I just hate hearing about how our taxes are consistently going to patch work for the Oak Park and River Forest High School, and this patch work always has inconsistencies that are mind blowing. For example, the high school was about to get an upgrade over the next five years, but now there is an additional 110 extra cameras that will be added. Come on, does that not sound like someone got a fat contract out of the village and is cashing in? I mean it is not like Oak Park, IL is the harbinger of crime, it is not the Austin area (they made sure of that with cul da sacs) or Englewood. So why is there an influx or increased need for security?

Are they importing/transferring inner city kids to the high school and they are worried about what might happen?  Did someone tell them that my westside ass lives in the area? It is not like the school has security to monitor these cameras in real time in case of an incident, the extra cameras will just be there to record the pre-event, event and the post event time lines, therefore what good is it? Why is it that the proposal cannot be audited or looked at to see what its original intent is supposed to be? There are so many questions, no answers, and large black holes of vagueness surrounding how this operation will unfold that it makes a local taxpayer wonder what the hell is going on here? Just Oak Park, IL being Oak Park, IL again

The article about the high school needing more shit:

Albion, Albion, Rush Oak Park, Albion, and Albion some more..

Holy shit so after reading this article (“Oak Park Plan Commission issues findings on Albion, Rush”) you are telling we will be hearing about this Albion crap in about two years?? Again? First off, I am glad that the village is expanding the Rush Oak Park Hospital, it is practical well thought of and ideal if the village wishes to expand its population base. Expanding the population base also expands the tax base too, so I know the village is drooling over the thought of all those additional tax dollars with the different high rises they are trying to push through. It is the same crap in Chicago, Oak Park, Il is no better. But the idea of expanding the hospital to me makes sense and I am glad it is out of the reasonable decisions made by the village board.

However, with this Albion crap they have just gotta let it go. Stroll down to the comments and the majority of the people commenting don’t want the friggin thing so why not listen to the people or put it to a ballot to end to this nightmare. Why not ask the people what they want or have a bunch of designs and put those designs to a vote, either through ballot (paper) or online. I just do not want to hear about it for the next two years, well, hopefully I won’t be trapped here that long! Then I can really crap on Oak Park, IL! (LOL) I am glad that most of my favorite places are back in the “trendy” places in the Chicagoland area, and the ones that I do like in the Oak Park, IL area are on the borders so I do not have to put up with the traffic problems.

I mean let’s be realistic an 18-story building is going to bring a lot of traffic to that area, and the plans provided do not have any ideas realistically to deal with that influx. What a parking garage? If that was a solution then why doesn’t Oak Park, Il not have dozens of parking garages all around the village then to truly help the residents? Because there is no money in that type of thinking, with that type of logic you know that the story of the Albion development if defeated in the next couple of months will just “pop” back up in two years’ time. Hey, everyone loves a sequel right? Ugh.

Here is the article talking about the dreaded Albion development rising from the dead like an extra from a George Romero movie:

No mention of the good works done

I have been trying to find this article about nurse Donna that works at an Oak Park hospital. Her contributions to the west side of doing Free heart screenings for the people who usually cannot afford it. It was mentioned on NBC Channel five (I believe it was Wednesday) as a feature because nurse Donna was honored by the American Heart Association for her work. However, I looked on the local papers online and there was no mention whatsoever about it.

This is disconcerting because this is the type of reaching out that Oak Park, Il needs to do with the local areas and especially with the West side of Chicago yet there are individuals that are actually doing this fantastic type of work but there is no mention about it. I think there needs to be kids involved or something cute involved to get full court press, hopefully more medical professionals who are willing to Volunteer their time to help the community around us.

I mean I will keep looking but it is really crappy that she did not get a mention in the paper as a thank you or for future motivation. Or maybe as a stimulus to others as I aforementioned to increase nurse Donna’s actions to a local full-blooded program or at least give her and the patients she sees some extra help. I will keep looking for a mention somewhere Online but until then kudos to nurse Donna! Thankfully there is another good thing coming out of Oak Park, Il and nurse Donna is definitely It.
