<quoted text> So sounds like someone is trying to give us the run around and maybe the silica sand is really conducive to snakes(like maybe our yards will be more popular for the snakes and leave his yard alone??!!) A little more research is definitely in order.
There are different types of silica sand. The kind to use is also used for sand blasting. Do some research you will find this in several books on using nature friendly items to rid you yard of pests. Soft silica is totally different than the silica used for sand blasting. Such as with Play sand vs sand used in making concrete.

One of Stegers long time favorite teachers passed away yesterday. Mary Pierce was 89. RIP

Great lady and a great teacher. She was still active as the village clerk in Richton Park.

I lived in that area for over 40 years. She looked so familiar. Do you know if she belonged to a parish in the area? She looks like someone from choir or library too. She's probably one of those people that was proactive in the communities besides being an area teacher..RIP sweet lady.

I am friends with casjuke and I do not understand what your comment means. Did I post something that was inappropriate? If so, I apologize. Please explain so I can prevent this in the future.

...maybe if there were more street lights in steger this wouldnt be happening...

I agree that Steger needs to have more street lights. The block I live on doesn't have one street light. Some neighbors don't have their porch lights on and it's quite dark in certain areas of the street. There are also no street lights in an alley I know about.

I believe the Village should investigate the whole town street light system and upgrade for more lights. It could help eliminate crime going on at night.

Contact 2-3 neighbors who will help pay for a Com-ed light to cover the back yards and then purchase 2-3 light timers inside your home that go on and off when you are not at home. This lets noone know when your home or away.ALSO YOU COULD KEEP A RADIO OR SMALL TV ON FOR SOME NOISE SO NOONE knows when you are away.Prevention is the name of the game-use it wisely

last year I paid over $7000 in property taxes to live in Steger. I think I am already paying for it - when do I get it?

To the person complaining about cars and pickups being packed in front yards, I went to the Village Board about that very thing 15 years ago. And again 12 years ago nothing was done. Trashy people that tear our home's value down.

There is a vegetable/flower market at East End Avenue and Sauk Trail in Chicago Heights, IL. Does anyone know when it opens again for business? It closes during the winter. I want to get started planting my herb garden indoors to prepare for the spring season.

I would think the code enforcement would enjoy giving tickets out to wrongfully parked cars. Or the PD.
Could use the revenue.

Com Ed wants to install Smart Meters on all our homes. There's more to them than just sending the monthly reading. Much I didn't know about them. Check out these videos.

Thanks both were informative...especially the second. Wonder what ComEd would do if we tried to tell them that we wouldn't accept the new meters.
