Opinion

Suburban Life Sound Off: Sept. 3-9

Show courtesy on Brookfield trail

The bicycle/jogging/walking trail, which is exactly opposite from the Brookfield Zoo on 31st Street. That trail is for everyone. [On the morning of Sept. 2], on three different occasions, bikers were speeding down the center lane, which is a yellow marker, and I was going in one direction on my bike and a woman with her children was walking in the other direction. These people have no right to do that, and if you're going to pass, there is a human courtesy called passing on your left and letting us know you're coming.

Thank you, Darien aldermen

Our sincere thanks to the Darien aldermen who voted against the ordinance that would have brought [a] 150,000-square-foot warehouse and 31 trucking docks to invade and pollute our community and the surrounding community and Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve. This vote was supported by 2,500 citizens who signed a petition rejecting this...trucking facility. A very large number of area residents appeared and objected to the facility at the last two meetings at the City Hall. Approximately 40 people spoke out strongly, rejecting the warehouse in our community. Three aldermen and the mayor rejected science, reason and the position of the community. One would think they worked for Sterling Bay and not the citizens.
