GEL SHARE: District 87 makes concessions on Memorial Field lights

In response to community concerns, Glenbard High School District 87 officials say they're making concessions as part of their plan to install lights at Memorial Field in Glen Ellyn. But opponents of the plan, which calls for installation of four 70-foot and two 60-foot light poles at the Glenbard West practice field, aren't entirely happy with the surprise.

Dear Editor:

As long-time residents and active volunteers in our Village, we would like to express our concern about District 87 plans to install 6 and 7-story light towers on the Glenbard West campus in the heart of our town.  We believe that the potential harm to the quality of life in the community is not an acceptable trade-off for the relatively small percentage of student athletes actually able to use night lighting for spring and fall extra-curricular activities at Memorial Park.

OPEN LETTER FROM VILLAGE OF GLEN ELLYN TRUSTEE PETER COOPER

Dear Friends:

It is almost precisely two years since I took my oath of office on becoming a Village Trustee for the Village of Glen Ellyn. During that time, I have tried to never lose sight of my sacred obligation to protect your trust and to pursue the best interests of our Village and its citizens. The work has frequently been hard and occasionally tedious, but it has almost always been rewarding.

(Continued) Executive chef, Pete Loehrke, (with an extensive background that includes Lettuce Entertain You's Avanzare, as well as the Cheesecake Factory and The Clubhouse in Oak Brook), has taken great pains to learn the old favorites, such as the Athenian Skirt Steak and Glen Oak's famous Broiled Pork Chops, at the same time bringing in some new taste tempters such as the mile-high Hilltopper burger.

And yes, the restaurant serves dinner, which patrons can enjoy with that signature martini or a favorite glass of imported beer, every evening (who knew?).

California transplant and Wheaton native Pam Duffy, and her photographer husband Ken Little, decided to venture into the restaurant business. They began searching for a business location and theme that seemed right to them.

What they found brought them back to Pam's roots and her early childhood memories of sitting in the brightly lit windows of Glen Ellyn's Glen Oak Restaurant with her grandma, waiting for her uncle to walk by on his daily commute to the city.

Those early memories spawned an interest to buy the Glen Oak restaurant.

Candidate Specific Questions for Mark Pfefferman

Mark, you were slated by the Civic Betterment Party and ran against several other village president candidates. Do you believe the Civic Betterment Party process is a fair process for selecting village officials?

Some people think the Civic Betterment Party is an exclusionary process. Can you explain why the Civic Betterment process is good for the village? What's your opinion of the CBP's typical selection of village officials?
