A close encounter in the suburbs: Oslo Davis seeks out UFOs in Westall

This entry was posted in Unidentified Flying Objects on by . [^]

When I was a Christian my Sunday school teacher told me if I heard someone say my name, but I didn’t see who said it, then it was probably Jesus calling me. That happened to me a fair bit when I was six, apparently, but I hadn’t had that unnerving sensation for almost 40 years, until I went to Westall.

Westall is a nondescript suburb loitering in a void between Springvale and Clayton South. I drove down there on a 34-degree Tuesday morning a few weeks back and parked on Rosebank Avenue, the main drag with your typical B-grade suburban restaurants, milk bars and an oversupply of massage parlours. Greater Westall is all houses and industrial parks. Except for a pretty patch of native bush called Grange Reserve, there’s no reason you’d put Westall on your bucket list.

Kane County forest district to offer snowmobile safety class

Snowmobile safety class in Geneva: The Forest Preserve District of Kane County will offer a Snowmobile Safety Class Saturday.

The program is presented by the Forest Preserve’s Public Safety department and the all-volunteer Snowmobile Safety Patrol. Patrol members serve as ambassadors for the District by riding and watching the preserves and trails. Volunteers enhance public safety by providing information and assistance with search and rescue events as needed.

The free class is intended for all ages. By law, youths age 12 to 15 who wish to operate a snowmobile under the supervision of an adult must earn a Snowmobile Safety Certificate. Eleven-year-olds can take the class but cannot receive their certificate until they reach age 12.

Chicago investor flips Evanston building for $32 million

Capitalizing on one of the tightest office submarkets in the area, a venture of Chicago-based Steelbridge Capital last week sold the 10-story building at 500 Davis St. to a joint venture of Northbrook-based investor Randy Rissman and CBRE Chairman Bob Wislow for $32.4 million, according to Cook County property records and sources familiar with the deal.

The price dwarfs the $18 million that Steelbridge paid for the property in the lakefront suburb just 2′ years ago, underscoring the strength of a location with lots of tenant demand and few office options. Steelbridge joins a cluster of landlords in Evanston that have cashed out with hefty profits over the past couple of years as buyers have chased properties in town centers that have ample access to transit.

After another ‘Year of the Woman,’ how close is PA to gender parity in politics? (Not very)

When Joanna McClinton first stepped onto the floor of the Pennsylvania Senate as a staffer in 2013, she experienced something like a revelation.

‘All I saw was older white men ‘ that’s it. I was like, ‘This is who leads Pennsylvania?’ ” she said recently. “I spent all those years in the courthouse as a public defender, and I’m like, No wonder! It became very clear: No wonder we have mandatory minimums. No wonder things are so flawed. No wonder I’m in court with these sentencing guidelines, and things seem so unfair.’

On Jan. 1, McClinton will be sworn in for her third term as a state representative and her first as the chairperson of the House Democratic Caucus ‘ making her the first woman of color ever to hold the position.
