My boys left two of their favorite toys outside one evening this week on the parkway for a few hours around Park Ridge. A Kettler go-cart similar to the one pictured here and the john deere tractor in the picture. They were taken and we think someone thought they were being thrown away since they were on the parkway. O...

Anyone know what happened to noodles and company in Park Ridge? Sad to see they closed up shop in pr and opened in Niles. I know parking at uptown in that location is a pain. Sure hope the storefront doesn't turn into another financial services company. Or worse y...

Wow. Regular people, including businesspeople -- not just the nuns, bless them -- talking about doing the moral and economically smart thing around Park Ridge? Perhaps there is hope. So ask your friendly neighborhood "non-partisan" candidates where they stand. And do keep in mind that the value of the federal minimum wage peaked in 1968 when it was raised to...

I was a little annoyed when Lucas Fuksa refused to answer questions posted in response to his Facebook ads, two out of last 3 blasting the current administration for the failed water deal with Evanston and failure to collect taxes from the now free parking at Lutheran General close to Park Ridge. This latest sponsored ad takes the cake. He is deleting comments when pressed for further information. He has turned commenting off altogether as far as I can see. I would like to hope that the good c...

Sadly, sometime over last weekend the red cougar mascot was stolen from the front of Carpenter School on Hamlin in Park Ridge. Who would do such a shameful thing? SMH. Hopefully someone thought it was a good prank and it will turn up somewhere in town. It is very heavy; it took two adult men to place it in the garden. There a...

I wanted to follow up on the commuter parking issue on the south side of the tracks in Park Ridge. The Tribune posted an article last week and mentioned my street permit proposal! Hopefully the parking study takes commuters' needs into consideration.
