I'm with Earl Hickey on this. Nothing says welcome to Riverside like people leaving their keys or key fobs in unlocked cars.

I'm happy to welcome everyone to Riverside,Helen, except criminals. If those streets have the same kind of barriers that are up in Oak Park, then no they wouldn't have been able to drive by shoot. Are we actually waiting for someone to get shot before we do what all our neighboring communities are doing to reduce traffic and crime?

I would prefer seeing the voting results in a chart form. The chart could categorize by township, precinct. It would also be interesting to have the number of registered voters in the precincts

First responders - just like everyone else - should be assuming that everyone they encounter may expose them to COVID-19 and practice strict social distancing. There is no reason to release the personal information to the general public or to non-medical first responders.

Another Quincy drug distribution house maybe. Quincy and Burlington are the destination of choice for selling dope in the suburbs. This story has giant holes in it too. No urban terrorist gang-banger can just jump into a nearby car and tear-off like that. Even 15 year-old cars have some security that isn't easy to bypass. Nothing in this story passes the red-face test. Hope the cops can figure it out.

Our local first responders should assume all are infected with COVID-19 to protect themselves and ultimately other members of the community as much as possible. I am confident Riverside residents will rally behind their efforts and understand the extra precautions. Thank you to our local first responders for taking on this additional risk and practicing safe measures to keep all of us safe while preventing spread of COVID-19.. We appreciate all of you!

I'm surprised there aren't more in Riverside. I drive through on my way home from work and have seen kids playing in the park, a ballgame, kids hanging out etc.more this past week than ever.

I would think that people who are infected will not keep it a secret from first responders, if they are called to their home. I would like to know where these people have been shopping, etc. Costco, Riverside Foods, Walgreens?? That info would be much more useful.

Riverside has been pushing hard on having the addresses of confirmed COVID-19 cases provided to first responders. This is not a privacy issue because we are not asking for patient identification, only the addresses where a known case is quarantined. I am hoping that either the county or state will respond to our request. Our first responder have a right to know.

"That party then allegedly stole a 2006 Chevy Uplander from a home a couple of doors away and fled the scene." Why was this vehicle able to be stolen so quickly especially in heat of a freewheeling gun battle? Was this another case of a vehicle being left unlocked in front of the house, with the keys and fobs in them so that the gunman merely had to hop in , push the start button and make his get away?
