THUMBS UP: It has been a great start to Lilac Time, and it looks to get even better with warmer weather forecast this week. Congratulations to Kendall Kott who was announced Saturday as the 2014 Lilac Queen. And have fun tonight as the party continues with the Lilac Ball.

THUMBS DOWN: The flooding of April 2013 continues to wreak havoc in Lombard a year later. A national insurance company recently filed a lawsuit against the village and DuPage County, as well as numerous other municipalities and counties, claiming damage from the flooding was preventable. We hope the resolution of the lawsuit is just and that it doesn't cause taxpayers any more grief.
