Dan Dan Dan.....nothing better to do? While you may not like our Mayor and indeed do not get a vote as you do not reside here, "friggin Tyrant", is quite a stretch. "merry band of misfit City Councilmen", really? That is the best you have? As to me, I appreciate the efforts of our entire elected city officials as it is a job that takes many hours from their families, requires dedication and ultimately makes difficult decisions that at times many of us will either applaud or disagree with. Nonetheless, I for one am glad that they have taken on the task and are trying to have a mostly positive impact on the community. I wonder if you are so engaged within your community of Round Lake or if you intend to run for office there?

forest - Dan is very involved with the happenings of Libertyville as well. Although, I think his hatred (or jealousy) of HP is far greater. It's a good question as to whether Dan is involved with Round Lake politics as much as he is in other North Shore towns? I know there schools are very poor and you would think such a opinionated resident would be up in arms. There are few more enjoyable things to do in IL than a summer evening at Ravina listening to a CSO concert! You are lucky to live in HP, it's such a cool historic town. To be fair this is the time of year when everyone in Lake County gets their tax bill and complains and threatens to move. It's like spring fever every year. Between our great schools and amazing Lake County Forest Preserves I still think I'm getting a good value compared to my relatives in WI so I'm content.

Only one of the people arrested was from Highland Park. And when they use an address on Skokie Valley Road that would be US 41/Edens so those people are driving through town on a federal highway. I agree with Running 55 and Forest. It takes a lot of time to try to make a positive effort in community affairs and not much time to be a critic. And Highland Park is a great community to live in. City officials and employees are responsive, courteous and doing a good job.

I wonder how Highland Park gets some many pot arrest? Probably a lot of illegal searches going down.
