Nothing Is local on here anymore. Terrible decision to drop local editors for this junk no one caresRead More about. I used to love how we knew everything going on around here from the patch. Now nothing...horrible, horrible decision! !!! I keep hoping someone starts their own patch type of thing. I will be dropping this one.

And we don't get any local news. Oxford Patch did not report the burglary's in Oxford.
BBW April 18, 2014 at 10:40 am
We don't have any local news, just boring politics, rained out stories of "Sandy", PoliceRead More stories without names and details. All the usual "cub reporter" crap. Don't blame the reporters it's just an on line "rag". Not even the ability to find stories, investigate a good story, or "MODERATE" the posts and comments. Example Notice the picture of the perp? Check the ears, eyes and face. Wrestler, MMA, brawler?What's your take on the guy, and why did he leave town? Drugs? What did the witnesses say to the cops… lots of good stuff in town, but poor reporting from the "PATCH". No follow-ups either.

When someone intentionally brings harm to another person or person, their punishment for the crimeRead More should be the same and there would be less crime. Stab her to death. Save the taxpayers money, and she deserves nothing less where it's case of intentional murder. The judge was frustrated by the limits of the law.
Ivan Ivanovich April 18, 2014 at 10:52 am
She's a piece of shit
Maria Houser Conzemius April 18, 2014 at 11:18 am
I think the woman may have deserved those words, but the judge was unwise to say them. Her sentenceRead More could be overturned on appeal because a higher court could perceive the judge as biased in his judgment.

I didn't know that anyone in the AFL-CIO had the required skills to perform any type of analysis.

Maria Houser Conzemius April 18, 2014 at 11:23 am
Ridiculous. People need to read the book I had to read for my MSW program at the University of IowaRead More School of Social Work, "The Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Prison." Matt Taibbi wrote an update (as wealth inequity and white-collar crime continue unabated and unconsequented) called "The Divide," which says much the same thing, and I'm anxious to read it. Wall Street CEOs can still millions and billions of dollars and not one of them goes to prison. In fact, they're laughing all the way to the bank. Yet this poor schmuck gets a free 89-cent refill and it costs him hundreds of dollars. Maybe things will have to get worse before people wake up and smell the coffee!

Pick'n up stakes. Let's face it - for all the reasons articulated by those who've posted heretoforeRead More and many more, Illinois is a used-to-be, fly-over, drive-around, nothing to see here - move along, dire state that is it today. You can't declare your state's and region's main city as a self-declared 'sanctuary city' - let alone without a referendum, and invite all sorts of 3rd World jetsam and flotsam into that city - they being with few employable skills only to become burdens on the criminal justice, public school, public health and other social systems, without consequences. Chicago's public schools are now predominantly non-Caucasian. While race isn't the issue, background is. These most recent immigrants and/or migrants to Chicago and across Illinois haven't brought with them marketable skills. It was one thing in the era of pre-technological society to promote immigration and migration into Chicago, Illinois and/or the Midwest of the unskilled and illiterate - at least in English. However, those were the days of manual labor when labor still drove agriculture and manufacturing required strong backs. Today's manufacturing requires computer-savy and even agriculture is driven - literally, buy GPS. Between robotics, voice-recognition software, computerization and/or the Internet's applications, the ensuing increased efficiencies across the board - in all manner of endeavors, makes such... jesam and flotsam [people] superfluous - at best, to the contemporary economic engine - one that's severely sputtering into complete collapse across Illinois. Yet, Chicago's and Illinois' political hack-quacks threw open the doors. Now Illinois is awash - from Waukegan, over to Rockford, down to Auora, Joliet and elsewhere across the state with those... unemployable and incapable of aggregate net contribution, i.e. those dependent on the ever fewer and fewer still standing tax-payers in the dire state of the State of Illinois. Whether it be the multi-generational and hopelessly dysfunctional African-American 'community', or the ever increasing numbers of Hispanic and Latino [as well as African] more recent arrivals; there's simply nothing [but dependency] for 'em here. At the same time, utterly irresponsible - to their host communities, corporate entities have squeezed and exacerbated the malaise. After half a dozen generations in Chicago, we're out of here. We've shuttered our business and are in the process of moving our residual assets out of Illinois. Our children have all been sent out of state for college and told not to expect a 'home' in Illinois when they're finished; and to look to elsewhere - outside of the Midwest, to lay a claim to their future. The pox - that which are both political parties in Illinois, and the state overrun with non-contributors - as it is [both those of people and corporations], will infect any who remain - the contagion is beyond mitigation at this point. The implosion is only gaining momentum. With Illinois firmly on a trajectory of 3rd Worldly consequence, why bother? "You load 16 tons and what do you get... another day older and deeper in debt." Illinois has piled it SO high and put us SO deep in debt that it's simply insurmountable. Let's face facts, we've met the enemy and they were us - the electorate. We allowed the hack-quacks to destroy us. Well, we're not sitting around to be the last ones [able] to leave and to have to turn out the lights. We'll leave the lights to go off on their own accord when there's no longer the capacity to keep 'em lit - as the debt burdens result in rolling backouts adn gangs of wild-dogs roam hunting for their prey. The Haitization of Illinois is well down the road to self-fulfillment. Adios.

This is the ONE that madicant and crew cannot control...People are free to leave the state anytime.
