"I am glad you do not have a problem paying for fees that YOU THINK are justified. Maybe you want to go into my pocket book and tell me what charities I should give to as well. What you are FALLING to ..."

"So Kathy, since you think its not right for people to complain about paying for fees that their kids do not participate in--such as my kids do not participate in the summer enrichment program, you can..."

"Josh Kiem, I think you misunderstood my answer. My advice is to go to your neighbor and tell them that you will pay to have the fence fixed or if it is so bad to replace that side FOR THEM. That way y..."

"I have to agree that this is really ridiculous. If you are paying for your kids to swim and you want to sit on a bench to watch them there should be no issue. In fact, if Park Ridge is so worried abou..."
