Vicky, would you have any objections if I also added links into the new site(Foich) for theseRead Morevideos ? I would eventually like to make it as all inclusive as possible, and think a 'video' tab would be a good addition.

First, everyone is welcome. It's actually easy to make the recordings, easy to post the info onRead MoreThe Patch, but the piece that takes some time is the uploading to YouTube. But, not a problem. Maybe I'll see if I can work the Fire Protection District Meetings in. And, honestly, even thought the Village of Plainfield records their meetings, sometimes I think I should just set the camera up when I'm there and do that, too, as the sound and imaging of the VB meeting recordings is pretty poor (sorry, no offense meant to anyone). And, yes, Thomas, feel free to post links however you like. The recordings are free public info, not anything I feel I own.

Hey Frank, Drunk much? You are without a doubt a long time Democrat, not the newest. Just ownRead Moreit already.

Sorry, not a Democrat, jen (?). A republican rapidly and sadly becoming disenfranchised....withoutRead Morea doubt. My statements were posted to enlighten fellow republicans that there have been actions and deeds that have not served the party very well at all...in fact several, both locally and nationally, have done significant damage to the credibility of the party. If being a good republican means being a zombie, turning my head to the bad apples in the bunch and coloring in their corresponding dots anyway just because they are republicans, I guess that doesn't describe me. I'm pro-gun, but I don't advocate for passing them out to the mentally infirm. I'm a fiscal conservative, but I don't tell people that, then wrest control of their money and spend it on myself. All I'm saying is that republicans should act like republicans and demonstrate in word and deed what they tell the voting public they will do. Not say one thing and do the other. If that's what you support, you're far less republican than I.

Wait... so GUTS runs the Park District website too? I guess its just a coincidence that PD FOIARead Morepage vanished at the same time there was a FOIA to get info on GUTS. And it looks an awful lot like GUTS is being contracted to do most IT work, and Booth is just an email forwarder. The Park District could set up a few simple inbox rules to replace him, and save 80K+/yr. And WHY does there need to be a fiber optic network connection between the offices and the pool across the street? Is that really necessary? When does that new Director start again?

The DSO season was terrific this year! While it was special in being their 60th year, it wasRead Moreactual ly not so special in delivering great music ONLY BECAUSE DSO ALWAYS delivers beautiful music to the surrounding community, with EVERY season. Congrats to them on this milestone. Aren't we all so lucky to have DSO so close to home! Here's looking forward to the upcoming 61st season. Can't wait to see what's in store. In the meantime, I would encourage anyone to take advantage of this last chance in the current season to get a ticket and go hear the music.

Where the heck were uninformed Hurtado and stupid Steinys? Isn't Hurtado the one that said he wasRead Moreu naware of a few things about the interim executive director, and needed his questions to be answered? He really put the importance of this on display. Cry to the papers, and then don't show up? Steinys is just a fool. Glad he did attend. Watching the video, looked like he was missed as much as the cold weather. Thank You for posting @Vicky Polito.

@Mr FOIA, did you make it to the meeting?
