Another July 4 in Riverside is now in the history books, and this one can be considered different than any others in our village.

The Riverside Friends of the Fourth would like to thank the village of Riverside, the fire and police departments, public works and the recreation department for their participation in Riverside's July 4 parade on their own time.

If you're one of North Riverside's legacy retailers it's been a rough go of late. J.C. Penney, Jewel-Osco and Sears – all of whom heard the siren song of the village's commercial property tax rates and business-friendly demeanor and escaped from a then-deteriorating Cermak Plaza in Berwyn – are either on their way out of town or in serious danger of folding.

Seniors are under such trying times like everybody else. Concerning our water bills in Brookfield, I sent several emails to President Kit Ketchmark concerning how we are billed for water.
As often as Swan Pond now floods (we've had what, five straight record-setting Mays for rainfall, each major rainfall flooding Swan Pond), money spent trying to improve it when Mother Nature isn't cooperating is not fiscally responsible decision making.

In today's political theater it has become a controversy to wear a mask. Some claim it violates constitutional rights, some go as far as to say they can't breathe. Yet doctors, and nurses are wearing them all day long to take care of us, and they are not dying from lack of breathing.
