I agree with Angie. There are only two car washes in lemont not including the speedways. Best men'sRead More haircut really? Best wings? Just limit them to favorite place to grab a beer...Favorite fast food... Etc This isn't Chicago you're going too deep into these categories
Amanda Luevano (Editor) August 17, 2012 at 02:30 pm
Sean, thanks for the comment. Each Patch was required to select 25 categories, so you can imagineRead More how difficult that can become when you cover a smaller town. I did my best to pick relevant categories, some of have worked out better than others. It is what it is. I appreciate the response we've had thus far. Winners will be announced next week.
Rick Brueckmann August 17, 2012 at 04:26 pm
Amanda, it seems some readers are a bit picky. Your questions are fine. Of course, not allRead More categories fit all towns. However, for wings, I found that Illinois Bar and Grill has the biggest and best tasting. Never had them at the Lemont House. Thanks for your work here. Rick

Project Infinite Green exposes local 7 th & 8th graders to the science, technology and mathRead More fields that our country so desperately needs our kids to pursue. They are mentored by experts in energy and science fields, tour research facilities and energy plants and are taught to think critically about the many possible alternatives to our fossil fuel dependency. I feel that while it is a commitment, the quality of the experience-from the mentors to the site visits to the dedication of the program director made this an A++ after-school activity.
Jerry Smollen July 8, 2012 at 08:46 pm
Old Quarry Band. There has been a group of hardworking people that have kept this after program upRead More and running for the children to continue learning music after the unfortunate cuts that had to be made at SD113A. This after school program helps to keep the band program at LHS running also. Without the grade school band the LHS band would eventually cease to exist.
Miriam August 3, 2012 at 05:05 pm
My son joined the Old Quarry Band last year and loved it! He had great instructors who were willingRead More to work with him through the hard times. He loved it so much that he practiced over the summer and is ready for Concert Band this year!

Dave Urbanski is by far the best. He is a very honest and dependable person. You can count onRead More him to always do an excellent job for you. I would recommend him to anyone.
Wendy Hillock July 10, 2012 at 08:42 pm
I would like to nominate Dave Urbanski. He has been doing work for us for 7 years and has doneRead More extensive remodeling in our house. He treats our home like it's his own. He's reliable, reasonable, and his work is excellent....plus he's a super nice guy!
Spencer D. Smith August 9, 2012 at 04:11 pm
Mark, You should honestly not bother getting any lawyers involved. First, because it will come toRead More nothing. It is very, very difficult to procure private information from AOL (Patch's parent company) even in the event of a criminal investigation. Second, Patch does not implement a two-step verification to give one the ability to post a comment. Effectively, what that means is that even if you were successful in getting the information they have associated with "Shane Botwin" (the name of a character who is a psychopath on the TV show Weeds), it would just be an IP and some header information. So your next step would be an attempt to track down first the internet provider used by Shane and then attempt to have them release the geographical details of the IP at that time (since it is very unlikely that Shane is posting from somewhere with a static IP). Next, you would have to cross your fingers that this wasn't done from anywhere with an open hotspot like Starbucks or McDonalds, since at that point, all your time and money would be wasted. That's a stone wall that can't be breached, technically or legally. Finally, anyone who has read these comments can tell that Mr. Botwin simply has a grudge against the bar for some reason. I suspect he/she was thrown out or fired. Everyone reading these comments understand that and none of us thinks your bar is unsanitary. Basically, don't feed the trolls. Ignore him and it will go away. Cheers! Spence
