The Columbia Central one was a white SUV, and the Barbara Ln one as a silver 4 door. Now the white SUV one was 2 guys: 1 white, 1 Blk. The Barbara Lane one was Blk guy. Now the Sandy Ridge Drive was a Hispanic man.
I am curious what do you mean by it seems a little weird. That can be taken several ways. Just wondering. You dont want anyone to mis-take what you say, cause as we all know that happens on here all the time.
Maybe all the perverts in the area are all friends, possibly room mates and they share a vehicle and take turns driving around trying to abduct kids!!! There are alot of sickos in the world now days, not like when my kids were younger.

NORMALLY I defend District 194 and their policies. But today, my daughter was told she had to cover up her "Beatles - Let It Be" shirt (pictures of 4 Beatles singing)- because it is RACIST?

Racing? The Beatles? They were anything but racist.

Does this apply to all bands then?

Yes, I will be at the next Board meeting about this one. Shame I have to wait nearly a month until the next Board meeting.

Ridiculous. Beatles - racist?

I hope that means NO OTHER BANDS can be displayed either. The ruling better be applied equally to any and all bands.

stupid spell check - that sentence should read

"Racist? The Beatles...."

somehow it fixed a typo to "racing" instead of "racist"

Racist? Seriously....which of the schools was this at? Who told her that and what was the ethnicity of the adult who told her to cover it up? I mean seriously...this has got to stop!

Do you know how many times I have been in the parking lot and seen kids wearing inappropriate clothing? The girls barely cover their rears! I have been shocked at some of them.
I think the school has bigger fish to fry than banning the Beatles.

Was a letter sent home from Eastview about a child with a contagious disease? I'm asking for any info on this. May just be a rumor.

There was a note regarding a student with a case of Aseptic Meningitis. It listed the symptoms: fever, headache, lack of appetite, stomach pain, nausea and vomiting and stiff neck. The letter stated that they go away after a few days to a week and leave no permanent damage. Then it gave the general rules of hand washing and not sharing cups.

I've also heard that this was going around St. Liborious as well.

We have confirmed with the Steger Police Department that the child involved in the Sandy Ridge incident had made a false statement.

The child did make a false statement. I am very sorry for all those who worried. As foe negative attacks on my child, lets remeber he is a child. And yes his actions are being taken seriously and are being delt with. I will make no excuses for his actions but leave the comments and punishment to his parents. Thank you...

Walk him up and down the streets on that side of Steger and have him go knock on every door and apologize to every resident for them worrying, especially the Hispanic residents.

To 'really' and 'working mom'.

Yes, I have to agree I've seen other attire that needs to be dealt with before they worry about banning the Beatles Let It Be logo (4 men with long hair singing). Which is why I have a call into the Jr. High Office, asking to explain to me exactly what was 'racist' about that shirt. I'm not trying to cause trouble, I just need to understand so 1) I know what she can't wear and 2) so I can answer her question "why are the Beatles racist?" - because honestly, I don't know why.

Poor John Lennon, all those demonstrations and rallies for the equality of all races, sexes, and religions, and now 40 years later, his shirt is banned. Talk about irony.

Oh, it was at the Jr. High.

Because they looked stoned in the picture maybe? And they don't want kids seeing that maybe? No clue.

I agree with the parent. The child is 6. How many kids never told a lie when they thought they were in trouble with their parents, probably all of us. This one just happened to effect more than the family. She said the family is dealing with it, please let them. Just be glad it was false.

He is a child, leave him alone! His family is dealing with the issue. I know the child and he is friends with kids of every color. My goodness.

When it becomes my husband being a Hispanic and looked at by neighbors and having to worry about police messing with him then I do got something to say about the matter. Child must hear things from parents that might be bad towards Hispanics for the child to be making that up about them. It's over and just move on and educate are kids better I guess.
