Proviso Probe

Friday, December 09, 2005

GENERAL, book, bid, accidents, bird calls & advertisement

Forest Park Review's Jackie Schultz wants you to come to Centuries & Sleuths to hear Joan Biskupic discuss her biography of Sandra Day O'Connor.
Print and TV journalist Joan Biskupic can be seen and heard discussing her Biography of Sandra Day O’Connor at Centuries & Sleuths at 7 p.m. on Friday, December 9. Come see and hear this exceptionally bright, witty young woman. We are lucky to have her here in Forest Park.

Jackie has even promised to bring homemade cookies.

W-T Engineering, Inc. will seek bids to renovate Forest Park Park District buildings. See Forest Park Review (Cam Wigton).

Did you know Mike Reynolds of Westchester teaches how to do bird calls? See Chicago Tribune (Kevin Pang).

A taxicab driver was seriously injured Wednesday at 6 AM when his cab collided with a bread van at First and Harvard in Maywood. See Chicago Tribune.

And in Berkeley, a worker was killed on the Tri-State Tuesday at 1:45 AM. See Chicago Tribune.

West Suburban Journal included an ad for Proviso Probe this week. Get your copy of West Suburban Journal at select Proviso business establishments.


  • If you have a local business, I encourage you to advertise in the local newspapers, including West Suburban Journal.

    Vibrant communities have vibrant media outlets. For local media outlets to be vibrant they need to be profitable.

  • One person gave me feedback that she didn't like the news dumps. She wrote that if the info wasn't good enough for its own entry, I just ignore it.

    What do you think?

  • I disagree. Many just focus in on that which is happening in their own little corner of Proviso. One must look at the various municipalities of Proviso as connected parts of the whole. Many times, you find that much of the bad that has infected this township is replicated in several of the municipalities i.e. Bruno. Most do not subscribe nor follow each newspaper from each town. This news dump gives you a cliff note version, if you will, of what is happening elsewhere. It is important to understand the many relationships that exist here and how these relationships affect you, you hometown and most importantlty, your taxes. I say keep it!

  • I think so-called "news dumps" are perfectly appropriate for several smaller news items that don't warrant a post of their own.

    The alternative is to have a bunch of tiny posts that push things off the bottom of the page, or to simply not mention these smaller stories at all. I think they're of interest, and a line or two with a link is sufficient.

    Putting them all together in one post is perfectly legit.
