  1. I’m confused… I’ll admit I have not been following this Deerfield passed a ban Lake County Circuit overturned the ban Deerfield appealed to Appellate Appellate dismissed the appeal Deerfield appealed to Illinois Supreme Illinois Supreme upheld Appellate dismissal of appeal. Do I have that sequence correct? If so how/why is Deerfield claiming their ban has been upheld? The only definitive court ruling was to overturn - every subsequent rulings have been to dismiss, then affirm dismissing, appeals of that ruling — so basically there has been no successful appeal overturning the initial definitive ruling. Correct?? So the ban has been overturned or not?
  2. I use these (or similar) they’re cooler than cotton, stay dry, and are comfortable under other shirts and tees. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0899C65TS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. Is this link better for you??? https://www.cbsnews.com/news/dads-louisiana-high-school-student-violence/ sorry, my news reader shortens links.
  4. It’s CBS News……. Dads spend time in Louisiana high school after 23 students were arrested in string of violence Updated on: October 22, 2021 / 7:30 PM By Steve Hartman After a violent week of fighting in school that saw 23 students arrested in three days, Southwood High School parents knew something had to change. Some dads decided to take matters into their own hands. They formed Dads on Duty — a group of about 40 dads who take shifts spending time at the school in Shreveport, Louisiana, greeting students in the morning and helping maintain a positive environment for learning, rather than fighting. The students say it's working — and the numbers prove it. There hasn't been a single incident on campus since the dads showed up. And though none of the dads have degrees in school counseling or criminal justice, they do have some relevant experience. "We're dads. We decided the best people who can take care of our kids are who? Are us," Michael LaFitte, who started Dads on Duty, said. Now, any negative energy that enters the building has to run the gauntlet of good parenting. "I immediately felt a form of safety," one of the students said. "We stopped fighting; people started going to class." "You ever heard of 'a look?'" one student asked while describing a "power" they claimed all dads have. But it's not just the firm stares and stern warnings — it's also the dad jokes. "They just make funny jokes like, 'Oh, hey, your shoe is untied,' but it's really not untied," a student commented. "They hate it! They're so embarrassed by it,"LaFitte said of the students. And it's that perfect mix of tough love and gentle ribbing that dads do so well that has helped transform this school. "The school has just been happy — and you can feel it," a student said. And now the dads plan to keep going to Southwood indefinitely. "Because not everybody has a father figure at home – or a male, period, in their life. So just to be here makes a big difference," the dads said. They'd like to start chapters of Dads on Duty throughout Louisiana — and hope to eventually take on schools across the country — without a fight.
  5. They could have complained. They could have blamed. They probably could have hollered Racism. They didn’t. They came up with a solution that works and made it happen! These Dads ROCK!! https://cbsn.ws/3psyNJG
  6. The interesting part isn’t that the Fed Court tossed the map but that they took control of the process…….
  7. Looks good. Thanks for your efforts. And, perhaps an apology is in order. Bad day here and perhaps a snap instead of a comment went out.
  8. Thanks Mauser! It’s been difficult on all of us.
  9. Do you purposely try and make things harder to read using some of the different views in this “new and improved” interface?? Posting dark fonts is not helpful with dark backgrounds…. Just sayin’
  10. They are a bit more mobile friendly but are buggy, requiring multiple, repeated refreshes to navigate around. The thing about Tapatalk was it’s simplicity - it was easy, intuitive, allowed bouncing easily between several different forums (this isn’t the only one out there) and it worked.

    Forum Themes

    Yeah, that seems to be the options. Use the default with its horrendous usability, or switch to the themes with better usability but with buggy functionality….
  12. How to wreck a site in three easy steps….. Update it to make it harder on the eyes. Update it to make it harder to get around. Remove tools that many used to visit, read and post with (Tapatalk anyone?).
  13. No prints with my original application (very first day you could apply) because I didn’t think the cost was justified for a difference of 30 days. But, then again, that was back when we expected the ISP to abide by the timelines proscribed by law, and, to a great extent they did - my original app missed the deadline by 3 days or so. Were I to apply today I’d likely opt for no prints again because the cost doesn’t seem justified since it doesn’t really seem to make much difference as ISP now completely disregards the timelines proscribed by law…
  14. Technicality but online purchases are purchases inside of Illinois - they are purchases technically made from your place of residence…. But you are correct - online purchases all require FOID. Physically cross State lines and buy ammo and they don’t care about your FOID.
  15. At least for ammo this is a moot point. My experience is that FOID isn’t required for purchase outside of Illinois…. Never ever been asked for it.

    Tapatalk’s format makes posts much much more readable. This isn’t saying to mobile format is necessarily bad, just that Tapstalk is much better.
  17. DW got her card three days after going active — so start to finish 9 days. Mine finally went active 8/12/2021 and card in hand 8/18/2021 So, what, 43 days on mine, Start to finish. Oh, and I mis-remembered - our CCL renewals went active the same day.
  18. I Had logged into the site on various platforms after the upgrade and never got an e-mail. Logged into the site via Tapatalk after the upgrade when y’all got it working and got ONE e-mail tagging a device using Foxfire with my correct location. Just logged into the site via Tapatalk using another device and immediately got FIVE e-mails tagging a device using Foxfire with my correct approximate location. Logged that device out and then back in (without closing Tapatalk) and got no further e-mails. Logged that device out and then back in (this time closing Tapatalk) and got TWO e-mails. Logged out and back in on a platform NOT using Tapatalk and got NO emails. Logged out and back in on a platform NOT using Tapatalk (clearing cache & cookies) and got NO emails. HTH ETA: Just got an email that was (based on device listed) from that last iteration — note the browser listed was Firefox but that wasn’t the browser being used….. PM me if you want details of devices or want me to do further testing….

    Back in business here as well. Thanks Molly, and please pass along thanks to all who worked diligently to tame the beast. It IS appreciated!
  20. This is mentioned in a couple of threads. They are working on it but it’s not back yet. I have faith that, if it’s possible, they’ll get it back before long.

    I unfollowed IllinoiCarry in Tapatalk to see if some odd bad remnants were hanging around. searched for it again, found it, however, when I try to follow it again I get this error:
