extra, extra!

We're in the news!  The Forest Park Review, that is.  Apparently, when you complain about parking tickets that you should never have gotten and a change in night parking times without a change in permit price at a council meeting, you become small-town (village) famous.  Yep.  We're famous.  Too bad nobody really knows who we are except for the crossing guard.  Oh well.  I realize parking permit issues may not be that exciting to you, but if you'd like to see our lovely names in print, you can find it here.  I will also say that Grady gave a fabulous speech to make our case.  Unfortunately, it's not posted online yet.  But it was about as moving as a speech about parking tickets could possible be.  Proud wife.  Yep.


  1. If I ever come back to Oak Park, I'm going to have to solicit this apparent Grady "Atticus" Behrens to liberate us over there as well.


  2. Let us know if that video of Grady ever surfaces online. I may have a few tickets in which I might solicit his services in city-protest.
