There's been a lot going on in Highland Park Patch's Local Voices. Check out our weekly recap of the site's blogs (and if you're interested in blogging yourself, click here to start).
- After Yuji Fukunaga retired his weekly column where he discussed raising his 8-year-old with autism, two local mothers began blogging to fill the void. Amy Greenebaum introduced herself last week with a wonderful piece about her 20-year-old son with autism, and Ruth Narrod's first blog post dissects the public reaction to the Tiger Mom and whether or not many mothers have more in common with Amy Chua than they care to admit.
- Readers were quick to protest the Park District of Highland Park's plans to build an interpretive center at Rosewood Beach. The Park District is seeking community feedback at its upcoming meetings. Check out the blog post for more info.
- District 113 Debuted four prototype classrooms this week. Two rooms at Highland Park High School have been outfitted with new technology and furniture with a goal "to get input from students and teachers on what type of equipment the District should start investing in."
- Though Frost did not win Best Dessert in Highland Park, it did get a glowing review from new blogger Laura Bednarski. She also took some great photos of the gelato she sampled.
- Last, Highland Park High School student Alex Gordontook on the Surpreme Court's deliberation over President Obama's health care legislation, and what the court's decision will mean for the country and its political parties.
