Holy crap we covered a lot today! To summarize:
1. North Aurora needs to abandon their new city motto and come up with something that actually makes sense.
2. East Dundee and Carpentersville have to end the Wal-Mart Civil War before the casualties start mounting. Can’t we all just get along?
3. U46 School Board members Cody Holt and Jeanette Ward had better start showing some statesmanship or they will become utterly ineffective on that board. And Ms. Ward’s obvious aversion to anything involving minorities is more than a bit unsettling.
Larry and I also want to thank Frampton/McDonald ticket winners Donna, Chuck, Darlene and Rosemarie. They were all good sports who answered the questions in the spirit of SNL’s Celebrity Jeopardy. We also want to thank Lisa for calling in and straightening us out on some specific curriculum issues!
On Monday, Kane County Chief of the Specialty Court Division, Melinda Benjamin, will fill in for Larry as we interview best selling author Johann Hari. His book “Chasing the Scream” reframes the drug war and our notion of drug addiction. Until then…
