Whoa! Interesting reading above. I have lived in Glenwood over 35 years, am white and have neighbors of all colors and backgrounds. My neighbors are all law-biding, good neighbors, with great kids who play outside like mine did, go to school and get good grades, like mine did, and so forth. Their homes and yards are well maintained and when my husband was ill and dying, they pitched in and helped keep my home and yard safe and well taken care of. That being said, if you feel that there are problems, and I admit that there are problems in Glenwood, as well as the rest of the country, stand up and do something about it. My neighbors enforce neighbor watch as well as know what is happening with their own children. If we want safer neighborhoods, better schools, etc. it is up to the people living within the area to make sure theses things happen. Get involved. When my children were growing up, my husband and I were active parts of the community. Don't expect someone else to make the changes - get out and offer a hand. My husband and I were responsible for mentoring several children from less than desirable home situations. It takes a village.

Lads great stuff here and no shrink fee, the Police had given up answering calls after the second year, Everything turning to crap is about right, my diverse friends who were here when we moved in are gone, the wise one's with kids or gr kids in school moved to a better HS dist in Tinley, they warned me about this but due to circumstances like my pension becoming non existant after people like BAIN got to it and cardiac and old age related problems I am stuck and could not give this house away until the BANKSTERS decide who owns the party house fixes or sells it for short but the criminals and mommas boys have moved on to terrorize more people of color theirs and mine they left their legacy and if I could leave it it would take a second my neighbor who is also of color has the same feelings after his next door neighbor also a person of color just packed up and left overnight, they do have insights on mommas boys AS FOR the village the last meeting I went to I requested the mayor call the the Governor to send the National Guard after my property was destroyed by the gangsters for the fifth or sixth time, it helped in the sense the Chief had sent more patrols in the wee small hrs and then the new guy arrived with a different set of values which leads us to the current situation

Diana i was in the same boat all my life I was involved in Youth sports at the Ice lodge and in grammar school and did all that and was in the Bloom Townsp Dem organ which I prefer to forget for 15years this is a unique situation which only happened on my street because it was the perfect spot for mommas boys and girls from all over the region to do what they do best I do not know of anyone who has stood up more than me in fact, our neighborhood watch on this street was next door and next to that the resident who has not paid her landlord a dime since they moved in more than 5 yr's ago. I was the watch I watched and waited u want to drop by and see the pool next door and tattered tarp with a few in of rain on it, the mayor called last night because it was suppose to be gone a week ago we'll see, I'm sure u are aware of west Nile??

Doubt they read the Patch..... But I agree.
Kimmy August 28, 2012 at 01:58 PM
@Butch- I have no idea what thought you are trying to convey as there is not one single period in that entire blurb. Was your education dumbed down, since that has got to be your favorite phrase. Enjoying that Lupe Fiasco CD, eh?
Kimmy August 28, 2012 at 02:12 PM
Why do they even allow comments after news stories??? Rampant ignorance is all it is. Remember people, opinions are like ---holes. Everyone has them and most of them stink! Back away from the computer!!
BUTCH August 28, 2012 at 02:23 PM
Kim yep i was tutored by Bill gates and his scummy keyboard these things happen when u are in stressful situations trying to watch out for retaliating mommas boys wrecking or trying to steal my car How do u feel about WEST NILE be grateful someone around here is being vigil Are u a momma from the neighborhood whose offspring was parking in front of the next door house for 4 years one of the better educated mommas in house parting from HW?
MyFlossmoorHome August 28, 2012 at 02:58 PM
Hey... I've been reading these comments... I'm 37, African American, Male, lived in Flossmoor for 22 years and graduated from HF in 1993. I hear what Butch is saying. He might not be as articulate as you'd like him to be... but the area has gone down... I can't blame it on any one group.. but things have changed. So... don't beat Butch up so bad.. if you don't know what it WAS like.. don't tell us about how it is now. HF was the #7 School in the State... there were no security guards. The basketball, band, and baseball teams sucked... but we got an excellent education. I've always been proud to say I'm from Flossmoor. But today... it's not the same. I have friends that I grew up with that Butch is probably talking about... and it's true. They don't care about you, your property, your house's value, nada. So I'm defending Butch... not that he's a flaming racist... but that some of the issues he brought up are real. I love my city. I wish we all did. Go HF!
MyFlossmoorHome August 28, 2012 at 03:00 PM
Butch.. if you lived next to me... you'd be happy, sorry about your situtaion and neighbors. We're all quite over here on this end of Flossmoor. But I pay 14k a year in taxes as well....
BUTCH August 28, 2012 at 03:02 PM
Kim too bad u are uptight about what u believe is ignorance I am of the opinion the people who break in and shoot the residents are newsworthy for us laymen and taxpayers if it is near my house especially my concern is to inform everyone and anyone on the health peril that allowed neglect and the right to have a pool =death from what the right to own and destroy a home with 150% financing and no payment for 5 years it all is relevant and the result is what kind of decay has come to the peaceful and crime free neighborhood. u should check out the danger and see if there are any more abandoned and or neglected pools in your area and thank u
Chester Rook August 28, 2012 at 05:51 PM
I hate "dumbed down" schools. It's schools like these that forget to teach students about run-on sentences and proper period placement. If only more people went to good schools, they'd know about run-on sentences and be able to share their ideas more clearly. (-:
Chester Rook August 28, 2012 at 06:00 PM
I just want to point out after line 13, word 6, there is a period! I guess that key on his computer isn't broken.
BUTCH August 28, 2012 at 06:38 PM
MYFLOSSMOOR I know if u lived next to me I would not be on the Blog talking about decay and blight abandoned houses pools and criminals the village is there now see what a little blogging can do they are cutting out a Forest that I see every day I go out my back door which I cut three times this year when it spread onto my property it is now on their house to the property line almost roof high( 2 story ) it is bamboo and ragweed they are also putting HOCKEY SIZE PUCKS in the pool to kill the Larvae there seems to be a ownership problem with the Banksters these days sorry about the lack of clarity I have way to much to say and the Blog keeps making me edit and cut 200 characters etc thanks for the understanding I have lived here since 78 after 16 years in DA HTS i LIVED HERE almost as old as u are we all loved the School when the kids were there and still follow the sports my son was in baseball and hockey, when the need for Hall security became apparent it was at the same time the gangsters moved into the Dist. they had 3 teen agers who did no chores but broke the iron handrail and outdoor lights TO DETER ANYONE from sneaking up on them or see what they were doing they employed a different Mexican landscaper every other week and never paid any of them.that was their good side
BUTCH August 28, 2012 at 07:25 PM
hey Chester take yer MED'S are you a real life bean counter or just word there are real things in this area to worry about that will affect you no matter how many sentences run on it is the NUKES down wind from here and noone is talking about the problem their is no solution worry about the what the solution to the storage problem is better off checking your thyroid than counting my periods
BUTCH August 28, 2012 at 07:35 PM
pc screw up again do yer-self A FAVOR and check yer thyroid the radiation levels and cancer rises go hand in hand with thyroid seficiencies OBAMA is committed to spend a BILLION A MONTH in the Hindu kush where they behead people for dancing ,TWIT will double that and what the dangers of NUKE STORAGE after they revoked the license of the new reactors what gives is more friggin important than my stupid PC screw ups, i HAD ASKED THE 2ND DIST CANDIDATE INDEPENDENT THE QUESTION BUT IT SEEMS TO HAVE DISAPPEARED
Juvenal August 28, 2012 at 07:47 PM
Crime rates have actually gone down the last several years nationally, but not in HF. Let's face it, the schools are magnets for non-residents and not enough is being done to stop it.
Brian James August 28, 2012 at 08:48 PM
Getting back to the story....Great job GPD. Everybody have a happy tin-foil hat Tuesday.

Raised in Glenwood,Live in area. Take pride in yourself ,your neighborhood , Stand up for yourself ,put your foot down and take control of problem issues that may occur . You and your children deserve the right and freedoms to be out and about without fear of anyone being harmed by someone. Stand up for your right and freedoms ,take it back. I had the privlege to walk around anywhere in Glenwood with my girlfriend( wife) as teenagers without any fear ,it was great. I originally grew up in the Roseland neighborhood in the 70's. Be fearless ,have pride, Make a change ,your children deserve it.
Steve August 29, 2012 at 12:18 AM
Don't hesitate to give the Police a call, all information of a bad situation will help them control possible problems . Only you can keep your children safe . Be STRONG !

VS August 30, 2012 at 08:58 PM
Butch I am cathcing up on my reading of this post. First I want to be clear that I am not attempting to single you out. There are good and bad points to the comments made by all. The bottomline is this in my opinion: At one time H-F schools were ranked in the top five in Illinois. Now according to US news they are sitting at #33. Even with such a significant drop they are only one of two south side highschools that ranked in the top forty with the other being Whitney Young (see the rankings at http://www.usnews.com/education/best-high-schools/illinois/rankings). Secondly, there has been a significanty change in values between the generations. I am in my mid 40's and in my time you work hard to accomplish set goals in life that you make for yourself, your family, and what have you and take pride in what you have. In regards to education, any responsible parent will possess the desire to give their children the very best educational foundation that they can possibly provide even if it means attempting to fraudulently enroll them in other school districts. In this picture I really do understand their plight however, I also know that it is not right and that is taxing the limited existing school resources that are meant for the children that are legally there.
BUTCH August 31, 2012 at 12:41 AM
VS so when the parents dropped their kids off and seen dozens of cars they believed they were going to a study group? And the afternoon study group came when they picked them up, Sure it is beats dodging bullets ON SCHOOL BUSES or being ambushed by thugs in Roseland-and Englewood if a person of color from Chatham or SOUTH SHORE was on on the patch I bet they would agree with my assessment bangers well my bottom line is to u and the mommas BLAME YER-SELF! THESE are not leprechauns. De segregation came hand in hand with the VICTORY on the war on DRUGS, DALEY took down the projects to relocate crime to the Burbs with the usual SEC 8 which is another example of something good being destroyed by bangers they also sell FOOD STAMP ID out of cars or counterfeits to stupid looking whitey's.some time we will go into detail on the entire situation not here though. I it a testimonial to greatness despite the intimidation and corrupt truant officers the school is still NUMBER 1 in the region
VS August 31, 2012 at 04:05 AM
You really are a lost cause and i do feel sorry for you. Open your mind if possible and realize that you shouldn't be so stereotypical. By the way I grew up in the Pullman Roseland area, I have family in Chatham who have been there for decades and none of us would agree with you.
BUTCH August 31, 2012 at 02:12 PM
VS Then you all can blame me remember the honors kid of 2 CPD shot on a bus by a banger on 103rd, the honors kid from Roseland ambushed by bangers from Altgeld Gardens on 111th the 2 CPD from Chatham killed in front of their homes all recently which until then was as quiet as Flossmoor and this year Leprechauns are turning it into Dodge city like the mentioned neighborhoods and Englewood Gresham the wild West side and and now the intruders or whatever the polite word is are bringing their banging to GLENWOOD and soon yer little corner of the world, I went to school in Bronzeville in another century, it was as bad then as now but had no Public housing high rises- one of my classmates lost his front teeth in a robbery in the EL station the first day of school we blamed ourselves for not protecting him from the thugs, my mind was opened and I became a liberal then- I grew up I like that lost cause beats being a OSTRICH.I

FORUM FR. PFLAEGER just hoisted the white flag, if Rev Elij Muham does there will not be a living soul on the south Side I can't imagine any parent in the burbs risk sending their student athlete to 63rd STONY or 35TH Mich the 2 Catholic schools in Ft Apache., not even the TV marchers will be safe from the terrorists, local cemeteries are filling up and most of the people of color are in their Ostrich mode Fr Flaeger has been the sole rock against the bangers it is past time the folks that live there get their heads out of the sand, all of us ware now n a unique position now that pres Obama home is not even safe from local terrorists, a start would be for the CHGO friends of the Pres make a strong case for getting rid of the phony WAR on DRUGS-right after the convention call out the Guard to enforce a curfew and open up the shuttered jails for bangers if they can't stop their destruction, the current ones are too crowded, The Pres can declare a state of emergency and end the War on drugs by exec order the returning troops will soon be needed on the Rio Grande if nothing is done there will be no city or jobs left to commute to forget the marshmallow pol's are never going to do much but line their deep pockets.

forum Imagine the resources of the Fed could apply to combating the terrorism in the city of Chgo and all cities nationwide by legalizing weed BILLIONS in freed up and even more in revenue thousands of victims and mommas boys would be alive to go to work the next day on jobs that will be created with new resources, all it takes is to wake the Fed up and join half a dozen states legalizing weed. The Pres said in 09 he was ordering the Fed to stop raiding weed farms and dispensaries which has not happened and has not been accountable by the victims families who lost their child most of them innocent bystanders of cartel-banger retaliation these folks are largely too busy and uninformed or do any serious protesting and rely on deep pocket POL or PREACHERS to pray the problem away not even a Mormon missionary can or will do much but pray.

Forum The easiest way to stop the slaughter is for leadership not marshmallows this district needs representation in congress and the WH none of the candidates have addressed the Slaughter and remedy in their opinion mudslinging and also pray, the victims families are in as much depression as the congressman and do not have the Mayo clinic to hide out in just Medicaid the GOP Senator is getiing intense rehab while denying it to the rest of us,and will likely under lyin and Twit cut their Medicare where are the PROFILES of COURAGE now that St Sabina's pastor .has raised the flag of surrender?
