Irish Eyes are Smiling (It's not over yet)

Members of the South Side Irish St. Patrick's Day Parade planning committee are meeting tonight for the first time since voting to end Beverly's annual parade.

The 25-member committee will brainstorm ideas and go over community suggestions for how to celebrate the holiday away from the parade down Western Avenue.

But a decision likely won't be reached until this summer.

"I'm looking at this as a long evaluation process," member Mary Beth Sheehan said today.

instead of an irish parade why not an irish street fair like the ones they have up north? Charge, I mean ask for a donation at the gate. Bands, food...seems like it would be easier to control. Just a thought.

I like this idea alot. I think it would be great and make it later in march or April since its a "irish fair" that way the wether will be nicer. I also think it should be away from western maybe by the 103rd business district along Longwood

I like the idea of a street fair, possibly a outdoor mass at Kennedy park to kick off the fair.

I like the fair idea. I think a change of venue every year would please all and keep it moving.

Forget about the parade. Neighborhood doesn't want it anymore. A nice festival in one of the parks could be great. Just keep Ginger out of the planning. If she's involved it too will be dead in the water like the Party in the Park in Mount Greenwood Park.

I think Ginger should be involved.

Ginger should be involved because she is the alderman and people need to show some respect.

Ginger is the one who needs to show some respect. She works for us, remember? I know she doesn't.

The blue ribbons and lit candles were for a 4th grader from Fisher.
Apparently he has a strep infection gone bad. Strep throat became scarlet fever and then became an autoimmune blood dyscrasia. He was given last rights but a teacher from Fisher told me that he may have turned the corner and is improving. Fisher had a prayer service last night. Everyone's prayers are still needed.

O T Be aware, near 105 whipple area. some proceeds were found in my neighbors front lawn, looks like from a possible garage burglary. anyone hear anything about one from over here.

just wants to let you know that the child molester is still at rita
this is what i was told

Last told, the little boy from Fisher is still unconcious and on a vent. He is having multiple transfusions as his white blood cells are attacking destroying his red blood cells. They are checking for brain damage. If you could keep him in your prayers, it would be greatly appreciated!

Hows that little boy doing?

Anonymous said...

Heard he is improving, off the vent and starting to talk. Not sure where they go from here, if there are other problems or if he is cured, if there are long term treatments. But at least he is improving!

Ginger would screw up a one car parade.

Illegal aliens bringing
deadly new flu into U.S.
(Fox News) All seven American patients, who came down with the illness, have recovered. But it has also broken out in Mexico, killing at least 16 people and sickening more than 800 ...

Did anyone see where Tom Dart was recently selected as one of the 100most influential Americans? I think that we should be proud that he lives right here.

I don't think he will be Sheriff for long. There's something much bigger in his future.

Lets not be beating on the Mexicans for Swine Flu. They are victims too. Shame on the blog for permitting such attacks.

Dart has no buisness being Sheriff he knows nothing about law enforcement ...

Dart knows enough to keep his nose clean. Besides, thats office is not a big law enforcement agency, its more custodial than anything else.

you seem like a brainiack...why don't you run for Tommy Dart's job?

Nobody is picking on the Mexicans, just the illegal Mexicans. If you come to this country legally, you will be checked for contagious diseases and not allowed to enter until you are non-contagious or cured and that goes for every nationality. I think if you or one of your loved ones became ill because of our lack of border security you would change your tune. Wake up Americans before there is a pandemic so out of control that hundreds, maybe thousands will die, then it is too late. Our politicians don't care about us or our families, they only care about the vote. They never rub shoulders with the working class so they don't worry about getting sick. Secure the borders now, north, south, east and west before it is too late. The terrorists have stated they will kill us from the inside, monitarily or disease. WAKE UP MY FRIENDS OR THE END MAY BE CLOSER THAN YOU THINK...

Please, let's keep the Irish parade going. Most people would pay big money for a laugh like this every year!

I dont know enough about the enforcement of laws.

I think Dart will run for Governor or Attorney General.

Run for sheriff ... Give me a break .. nobody runs for that job ... you are picked by the machine and you get party patronage support and you win ... qualified is not an option ... at least Sheahan had law enforcement experience.

Relax, no one is picking on them. It is called being realistic, they are sneaking over the borders and bringing the illness with them Why do you think we are seeing a rise of previously wiped out diseases here in the US. Whooping cough and TB are on the rise, why? Illegals are coming here not properly vaccinated and spreading disease. Borders need to be closed and patrolled. Stop the flow now

The poster at 9:03 am should be the king of the parade or at least the sheriff.
