Team Trivia
4 Replies

Erin replied to Scott's discussion Village Sticker Patrol in Private Parking Lots?
"In my case we had just moved in basically.  But, as usual, whenever this Brad guy replies, the aim is to attack rather than converse (just check his history).  This is the reason why people don't post here anymore IMHO, everything…"

Erin replied to _____'s discussion Summer Camps
"River Forest Community Center has a full time camp.  They do three sessions and then one mini-session to get you within a week of school starting.  We did it last year and were very happy with it."

Erin replied to Ann's discussion Nail Salons
"Amanda, I would steer clear...I went twice, the first time I was somewhat impressed, the second ensured never returning.  The owner is very nice, however, she did a hatchet job on my nails and used some sort of chemical that dried out my…"

Erin replied to Krista's discussion District 97 Test Scores Are Out
"Agreed, NCLB is not achievable and makes scores like this seem worse than they really are.  NCLB is an increase by some percentage each year until all schools are at 100% pass rate on standardized tests.  It has shifted focus from learning…"

Erin replied to Kandice Kidd's discussion Who is your internet and cable provider?

Erin replied to Becca's discussion Basement flooding
"No, we have a sump pump that works perfectly, just not when it is flowing readily under the basement door.  This was the storm sewers being too full and flooding the streets, yards, etc."

Erin replied to Becca's discussion Basement flooding
"We have a stand pipe and it didn't help us any :(.  Our issue is that the back stairwell drains into the sump and it gets to a point where it can't keep up, so it all comes under the door.   I've said many times today that…"

"Chris, us again too...the whole block (again).  We have a consensus that the village has changed something that is causing this.  People that have lived here 20 years have never had this issue and now its annually.  I realize these…"

Erin replied to Josh Eisenberg's discussion Why can't teachers make a lot?
"The flyer today was just silly, and that's the best word I can come up with for it.  The back had the top 100 salaries in the district and at the bottom, put the average as it were the average in D97.  130K is NOT the average of all…"
