NWH's great idea
July 28, 2009
An editorial in this morning's Northwest Herald takes Sheriff Keith Nygren and the City of Crystal Lake to task for the silly lawsuit over the intersection of Walkup Road and Dvorak Drive, in front of Prairie Ridge High School.
Unfortunately, it repeated the same misleading statement that appeared in yesterday's news article - that there have been more than 30 minor traffic accidents at the intersection "since 2000". What's misleading about it? Yesterday's paper reported that there hasn't been an accident there since September 2007, nearly two years ago.
Like, maybe the problem got solved? Kids are paying more attention now? Did Prairie Ridge High School officials undertake an education campaign to impress upon students that, when they leave the school, they need to drive their cars first and stay off their cell phones?
The great idea was: "The sheriff should withdraw the lawsuit, and all sides of this issue should lock themselves in a room until they work it out."
To that end, send in a little food and some bottles of water every couple of days, and call the Purple Potty People to put one of their best in the corner.
And don't forget spare batteries for the cell phone.
Just when did the so-called "improper" annexation take place, anyway?
