Nanny for traveling teen to extra-curricular activities at oprf highschool

Hello all, I would like to know if there are any recommendations for a part-time nanny who can pick-up and drop-off teen to OP highschool for extra-curricular activities 2-3 times a week.  Hopefully someone who lives close to the school.  My teen daugter has to far a walk especially now that it gets dark so early.  Any recommendations would be great. See More

Which Jewel's Are You River Forest on Lake street or Oak Park on Madison

Grrrrrrrr, this was the sound I made when I visited the Jewel on Madison street to grab some green onions for my Olive Cheese Bread. So, I know that the Jewel on Madison street is a bit smaller but sometimes I get so irritated when I can't get the most simple things. The Jewel on madison is much closer to me but I've found myself having a small debate in my head on which one to visit.

Blockbuster to leave Oak Park

This article in the Wednesday Journal saddened me a little. I have been seeing the deletion of Blockbusters all around the City of Chicago and now in Oak Park. I can remember growing up and packing in the car with the whole family for movie night. Now I guess I can pack my family up in the car and roll up to a cube with movies in it and rent whatever is left in the machine. I know it's a sign of the times but lets keep a few brick stores around for the family feeling. If we lose all the stores… Continue

Oak Park cops await autopsy results for 18-month old

It has occured to me that some things are just unfortunate. It's obvious that this mother has some mental issues. Those issues should have been addressed after the first incident with her 9-year old child. Also I wonder how many unregistered Day Care businesses are lurking in the day and night. I'll be paying close attention to this case just to see how it will be handled. Below please read the article in Wednesday journal regarding this disturbing case.

Hi Khaliah! Thanks for joining. I spend a lot of time at the library too.

I'm a big audio book person because I have a long commute to work. I wish I was disciplined enough to rent movies from there. It's a great library and given how high our taxes are, we might as well get the most out of it! I look forward to chatting with you.
