Hello there, TaxPayer, We have some exciting changes going on at Patch. In just two weeks, we'll be launching Beverly-Mt. Greenwood Patch, with our former Palos Patch editor, Dan Lambert at the helm. With Dan leading Beverly-Mt. Greenwood, Nick picked up the reins over at Palos Patch. We're happy to see him trying new things in Patch, and I'm sure Oak Forest will miss him! I will now lead OF Patch, with the assistance of reporter Jeff Graveline. Hope this helps! Lauren

Hello, I have 2 kids at st. Damian and they recently removed the school bus which district 145 provides that transports my kids. I'm very upset Because me and my husband work and we rely heavily on the school bus. It's not fair we are still paying taxes. My kids play all sports thru oak forest. Something has to be done.

Oh NO, Ana. Let me look into this for you. I wonder what's going on. Hang tight. I'll see what I can find out.

What are the start times for Ridge Early Childhood Center and Lee R. Foster schools? My 2 boys are starting in the Fall (2013) and I'm wondering if it will be a problem with the drop-offs or pick-ups having the boys at different schools. I can't seem to find the school hours, for the students, on the website. Thanks in advance! :-)
