As promised - I am here to report what happened with The Beatles t-shirt.

I contacted the Jr. High office via e-mail on Saturday. On Monday I received an e-mail back saying they are looking into it. Later that same Monday I received an e-mail that they talked to the staff member, talked to my daughter, and somehow somewhere there was a misunderstanding. Not sure exactly where or how.

At any rate, we have been asked to bring the shirt into school, directly to the office, and they will look at it and make a final decision on the spot. Which I think is fair, since nobody in the office has seen the shirt in question.

I am very happy with how the office handled the situation and the promptness of it.

rt66fan,

It seems that a more reasonable tone is now being taken by the administrators but the actual t-shirt isn't really the problem when the staff member unequivocally stated "the Beatles are racist".

So I heard that Bloom Trail sent letters home to parents stating that the school would be closing and possibly becoming a charter school. Any truth to this?

<quoted text>I thought about that, but we would be the ones they would lock up. I've seen these punks chase a guy into the police station like a pack of junk yard dogs and four of Steger's finest came out and did nothing,they should have been locked up for mob action or something.
the guy going in there was goin in there because these punks friend pulled a gun out on him and some boys after they got off the bus, luckily the kid with the gun was caught and arrested. and the police sure didnt do a thing when they ran up on him going in there its just ridiculous!

<quoted text>I agree with you, but I think the problem is there arent enough police patroling the neighborhood. There was another garage (tagged) on 35th between Sangamon and Morgan the same 2 apartment duplex where both apartments windows were broken out. Also theres a house that was being rented where rumored gang memebers were living, but I now see that the house is empty good riddance to them! But there probably renting somewhere else in steger. The house was on peoria and 35th street. Also there alot of graffiti sprayed on the actual street between morgan and peoria, you would think the police would see this when there patroling the area!!!
one of the duplex windows that was broken was a gang memeber living there, he was later arrested for pulling a gun out on some guys after school in BROAD DAYLIGHT

They're P***YS! I'm a lifetime resident and I'm not gonna let some P***YS effect me when I walk to Citgo or have to walk a different route because of them. I will continue to walk the same route because I walk right pass that street and see them out there but they never really ever have said anything to me while walking alone. I always got something for protection if they were to confront me.

I saw a moving truck at the duplex the other day and then later the landlord was putting new windows in! I think the gang has moved out, good riddance!

At the last meeting there was discussion that there was not a signed development agreement with the developer...if the business license is granted what leverage will the village have to get the development agreement signed?

RE:

I can understand giving them a reduced fee, but I don't think they should be exempt. The state doesn't give them plates, they get them at a reduced fee. In these times of the village needing money, is this a wise move. I'd like to hear from others what they think.
