Your rudeness leads me to believe that you don't understand how Topix works and you misunderstand what I posted. I said this same exact thread shows up in the Palos Heights forum, the Chicago Ridge forum, the Oak Lawn forum, the Burbank forum, etc. As a matter of fact it probably shows up to all southwestern suburban forums. Try it for yourself. Go into the Palos Heights forum and click on the one titled "Fire Destroys Apartments in CR". You'll see what I mean.

Apology not necessary after you realize how much of a fool you made yourself appear! Geeessh!

BTW - People from all over the world are free to come to the CR forum. It is a free country you know! So - sorry! I'll read and post wherever I want to.

Yes, I would like to know what happened with Dennis Pratl's charges also. My fammily knows the girl that brought the charges and feel horrible that this is still lingering. However, I hope Pratl is never allowed to coah another team again for St. Gerald or any other school. He made some of the girls on the team uncomfortable with his comments.

My family knows the girl that brought the charges also and everybody else in Oak Lawn knows she made the story up and the charges have been dropped. She was not playing on any teams at St. Geralds that was made up. Everybody knows that. Where have you been? It has been lingering because nothing happened. Are you sure that you know that family very well? They don't seem to have too many friends.

That's a brilliant statement! How could everyone in Oak Lawn know that is is made up. Don't be ignorant. Only the people there know what happenned. Charges were not dropped. Check the Illinois Sex Offender Website in a few months & you will see his picture.

This happened in Oak Lawn correct? Why are we talking about this in the Chicago ridge forum? Why not just come out and say it. There is no “they" they aren’t the performance party, they are not an association, let’s just grow up and talk about things that are going on in THIS town.
Because he would come into THIS town and bully people at OUR polls, that's why.
