Proviso Probe

MEDIA, what articles are important to you

It's Wednesday, so the local papers arrive today. What articles seem important to you?

* Forest Park Review
* Maywood Herald
* Melrose Park Herald
* Riverside/Brookfield Landmark
* Suburban Life
* West Proviso Herald
* West Suburban Journal (arrives Thursday)
* Westchester Herald

Also, Proviso Probe has hosted some contentious discussions. Forest Parkers got into it in the zoning thread and the thread discussing coverage of the Tamil Tigers.

The retirement of the Melrose Park police chief inspired a long discussion that was continued in a more recent thread.

And I'm still waiting to hear from most of the state representatives if they will sponsor the legislation to continue the freeze on electrical rates until there is competition.


  • Based on the question and answer session in the Forest Park Review, Stan Fields is a yes man to Chris Welch and the majority board.

    During this session, Fields drew a line in the sand aligning himself with Welch and the majority board while distancing himself from the minority board.

    Is this the guy who is supposed to be a unifier?

    For Stan Fields to see no problem or conflict of interest to those who contributed to Welch's campaign and contracts awarded to these same individuals is stunning.

    There is definitely a fertile environment for quid pro quo in District 209 and Fields is showing us that he is not part of the solution, but part of the problem.

    Please make a note of this interview.

    We will revisit Fields's statements at a more appropriate time. At that time, we will see if he retracts, contradicts or claims to be taken out of context.

  • I read the Forest Park Review article. Stan Fields was right on the money, and he did not address the Chris Welch campaign money issue. What he did say is that the Board of education will follow the law. Period. End of Discussion. What's political about that? Also, how is that a superintendent drew the line by saying something about the board majority? That's how a superintendent gets his/her direction. What I see here is that the board minority is still upset about not getting their hack into Proviso that they won't even attempt to support the new superintendent. That is irresponsible as minority board members. Shame on them.

  • Oh boy the good ole democratic process at work.

    The vocal minority wants to control the majorty.

    Sorry folks thats not how it works.

    The minority is to be heard but the majority rules.

  • But what about how Welch sponsored his state rep. campaign? Will Fields ever comment? Maybe Fields will give a statement when the FEDS knock down 209's door! Will it be to late?

    Welch please resign from the BOE!
