I appreciate you getting to the bottom of this, Lisa!
Lisa April 23, 2014 at 09:12 am
Sure thing, Jen. I'd like to know too since I may have unintentionally contributed to the continuedRead More dissemination of misinformation. On Monday afternoon, when the reporter, Amie Schaenzer, who wrote this article, published her initial article about the incident, I e-mailed her to say, "What about including in the story (esp. the Wheaton edition) that Mark Stankus, the man who saved the survivor of the kayak accident, is a Wheaton school teacher? I don’t know him, but I read about him in the Daily Herald’s report of the accident."
Jen April 23, 2014 at 09:20 am
Don't worry about it. I appreciate you for trying to make things right.

Did you see the Drew Peterson movie? It portrayed Hosey's office as a gleaming, modern andRead More bustling. As opposed to the stained drop-ceiling and general bleakness. Just let the Patch be the joke it always has been.
Jacob Matthews April 21, 2014 at 08:48 am
Leave it to the Patch to embellish Comedy Central as a business to be respected.
Beth Lopez April 16, 2014 at 10:14 am

I met Walter last year in Puerto Vallarta. He and Kim won a 3 night stay with Eric & Kathy fromRead More The Mix radio station. He was funny and well liked. I heard he was in Los Cabos this year again with the Eric & Kathy show. I wasn't able to go this year, but am sure he was just as fun this year. I was shocked when I realized who was driving the truck. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Karah-- I'm am so,so sorry for your loss. Your dad was THE NICEST, most sincere person I've everRead More met. I was his realtor and spent many hours with him. He adored you and your kids, always showing me new pictures. When I heard this on the news this morning, I am just in shock! My prayers are with you and your family.

I keep hearing that people are bashing my father. If so, please, pray for yourself because you needRead More God. My father was not on his phone nor speeding.

Rico Suave April 6, 2014 at 07:24 pm People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only becauseRead More rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. Remember this Benny G and all you other scum sucking Liberals out there. The police in these ghetto areas are chasing them down every night in an attempt to keep them from coming into your so called safe areas. Appreciate their sacrifices and don't give this white Fucktard the time of day. Hey Kenneth! Love teh comments... Who else would say fucktard on here?

Benny G. I think you hate the police because your dad was a abusive cop who poked you in the assRead More when you were growing up.

@ knee jerk. Although the upper limit IQ for officers is 105, the target IQ is between 94-98. TheRead More average IQ of a U.S. citizen is 100. Whenever you are speaking to a police officer, you are most likely speaking to someone with an IQ considerably Lower than your own. Please remember to speak slowly, always try to limit the amount of syllables in each word to less than three, and try not to laugh... Cuz They get Really Paranoid. Must be the drugs.

Real smart. Steal commercial vehicles that most likely had company logos on them. Duh?

Does anything happen in Darien anymore?! I never see any articles about anything happening inRead More Darien, the Lion's Club pancake breakfast, the armed robberies at the gas stations, the 75th St. construction, city council budget, anything Darien related! How can you call this the Darien Patch when there is nothing about Darien in. Every other town or city has a Patch site that has articles related to their town. We get lazy editors who just copy and paste from other news sites.
Kelly O' March 30, 2014 at 06:17 pm
You don't have a lot of crime in Darien. Thank your lucky stars.

@Bambi: OMGPD is a feature that recounts some of the more unusual crime stories in the Chicago-areaRead More suburbs. It's appeared weekly in your Deerfield Patch for about 2 years. @Adam West: I will email you directly with more information about Darien Patch, one of the Patches in the region that has been without a full-time editor for the last year.

She will have cost all us taxpayers a lot of money when this is all done. Millions in lawsuits andRead More probably a million plus in repairs to the system. I could be wrong, but maybe a little more training and evaluation needs to be implemented before someone is turned loose at the controls...
