Proviso Probe

Tuesday, December 27, 2005

GENERAL, no trons; is the coffee as good as the hype?; drug arrest; scamming

A Forest Park electricity distribution substation failed causing 15,000+ to lose power on Christmas. See Chicago Tribune. Did a drunk Santa electrocute a reindeer?

Chicago Tribune (Brett McNeil) wrote about Legal Grounds, the new coffee shop at Maybrook. Who does Legal Grounds publicity? Why is a coffee shop worth a write-up and not the dozens of other small businesses that have started in Proviso Township in the last year?

Northwest Herald reports on the Lake in the Hills police blotter:
Mark L. Graves, 32, 1709 22nd Ave., Melrose Park, was arrested Thursday, Dec. 22, on a Cook County warrant on charges of manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance.

Does Graves have any connections to other Proviso residents that may be relevant?

Forest Park Review (Bill Dwyer) is warning seniors about a team of local flimflam men. If scamming is good enough for the President of the United States, it should be good enough for the west suburbs of Chicago, right?

But what's on your mind? Any subjects you'd like to see covered on Proviso Probe?
