First all the problems with the splash pad at Prospect Park and now the new playground at Jaycee Park in Park Ridge. Is the Park Ridge Park District cutting corners to "save money"? Because that just seems to be creating more expense. Is this why our park district programs are so expensive? So we can pay to have eve...

Community Feedback Needed close to Park Ridge. Is a district 64 wide hot lunch program something our community wants or needs? A program is being contemplated where the district would take over the hot lunch program (not pizza Fridays) where the ...

People have been asking me about the high school board candidates and who I like for the election in Park Ridge. Here are the District 207 Daily Herald Endorsements. After attending the candidate forums I agree with them 100%:

Why is the Park District so worried about protecting our tax dollars from outsiders—especially at a time when they are actively shifting the financial burden of running a park district onto the users through fees in Park Ridge? It would seem that if the mission of Thillens and Biagi and the rest of the folks at the park district is to shift the financial burden to users through fees rather than taxes then wouldn't they want ...

I promised the kids swimming today but Splash Landing doesn't open until 4pm on Fridays in Park Ridge. Of course I only checked the time for Thursdays when we were originally going to go — which was 11am. Niles doesn't open until 3pm. Park Ridge Park District is expensive and boring. Where else can w...

Is it just me, or is the Park District run with all the efficiency of a 1950's bake sale nearby Park Ridge? My wife had to make three trips to register our kids for summer camp, because they still haven't mastered online registration, and fill out all the forms we filled out before because they got a new co...

A fellow Park Board member is sending this to the newspaper after being targeted in a mailing from two candidates for Park Board - Jim O'Donnell and Jim Janak: I received a campaign mailer for the Park District election supporting two candidates for the Park Board in Park Ridge. It was funded by "Cook County Integrity PAC". Why is a Maine Township Republican right wing Tea Party PAC funded with $10, 000 in donations from a non-resident getting involved in a NON-PARTISAN Park ...

Asking people to pay tuition for public school is a terrible idea in Park Ridge. It goes against the very idea of public school. Either Park Ridge offers it to everyone or they don't. There are already full day options at the private schools. It will create a second class of stude...
