THANK YOU! These links were very helpful.

Now for local radio - are there any local radio stations or just the big ones coming out of Chicago?

Sure wish I had seen this yesterday.

I was fishing the Lemont Quarries and had a pleasant conversation with a Lemont LEO + one of the nicest Conservation (game Warden) Police officers I have ever met. Both young men are ALL for CCW in Illinois.

I will be handing out fliers at the Des Plaines River Anglers Association meeting tonight At 7PM at

The Outpost
14929 Archer Ave
Lockport

I will try to get the name and phone # of the outdoor person on the Joliet radio station. I think he will help also.

Will do Molly! Are you going to be there? I'll take care of getting these posted in Willowbrook. I'm sure TomKoz would take Darien. Please let me know if you need anything at all.

I don't know if he's been invited but he does have a PRO-2A opponent:

Now isn't that quite a coincidence that we would plan a town hall meeting in this district?! :thumbsup: How about that?!
We need some help in distributing fliers at the Metra Western Springs station and in the Western Springs area of Burlington Ave. south to 55th St. and from I-294 east to Hwy.45.

Any volunteers?

Would someone double check the address/directions for this event. I don't live in Lemont any longer, but my parents still do. My Dad wants to attend, but he's getting 2 different addresses for the location of this building. One when he clicks into the link..........and another when he googled the name of the building just because he'd never heard of it.

I grew up in Lemont, and have never heard of Alba St. either.

Thanks.
Sarcasm.....................Just another service I offer.

I called the township and Alba is a new street.
It is just east of I355 - 1 block north of 127th street.
I was told there is a stoplight on 127th street east of I355 at Timberline Dr. with Peppers Auto repair on the corner. Turn north on Timberline and then take the first left turn onto Alba.

Hope that helps.

I sent it to the local patch Editor for Oak Forest, and asked if she will send it along to the other editors in the area.

Lou, that helps hugely. Thanks a bunch. Dads gonna gather a few folks to attend with him.

I'm still amazed each time I visit the P's on how much Lemont has changed. You used to be able to hunt in and around Lemont. Not so much any longer...........sad, very sad.

Done today. I hit the two La Grange stations and the Western Spring station plus posted some in local shopping centers/grocery stores.

I do have a sneaking feeling that the ones I posted around the WS station plus the pile I left inside disappeared as soon as I left. The person working in the station was giving me some major league stink-eye. :brr:

I'm planning on hitting as much as I can in some of the shopping centers around Willowbrook and Darien. Dominick's and Caribou Coffee no longer have bulletin boards, but Jewel does.
I filled out the special form at the Indian Prairie Library to get it posted on the community events bulletin board. I have to go confirm that it was approved :Drunk emoticon: . I guess they do that to keep from people spamming the BBs.

Got a pile of fliers and a stapler in the car. Maybe that's what the kids and I can do some more of in the morning.

Don't know yet, but if he does I will be reminding everyone how important it is that we welcome him to hear
our side of the issue.

To attack or be rude to him will not work in our favor. I hope he will come and we can show him the people in
his new district support this issue!

No worry. I have been practicing holding my tongue. If he doesn't see the light and come to our side though we need to find an independent to challenge him in the general election!!!
