The state of our local society is in pathetic degredation if this is the best example of local news that can be reported. After reading the constant reports of intoxicated and impaired drivers, I am seriously concerned about the safety the roadways in our community. It appears we are all in danger of being victims of irresponsible drivers with no social conscience. Cars are weapons. Make the penalties for use of a deadly weapon while impaired fit the crime and threat it is to others.

The 2-3 citations reported in the police blotter each week do not represent an epidemic (think of the thousands of motorists that drive in and through LF every day - and do the math...). Lots of positive news is displayed in the Patch and elsewhere, and I still think we in LF/LB live in a fabulous bubble. :)

A bubble it is and rated one of the top ten most miserable places to live. Hard to believe with all that wealth and rich "happy" couples/people drinking everywhere.

LB Duffer - that articles was WEAK. From the link you posted: #9 Lake County, Ill. The Chicago suburb is one of the richest counties in the U.S., as measured by per capita income. But home prices are down 29% over the past 5 years. Other drawbacks: long commutes and lousy weather. The quality of life here hasn't been harmed by a drop in real estate prices. If you don't like long commutes (presumably to downtown Chicago), shut up and move! We have cold, snowy winters - oh, boo hoo! Lake County covers a very broad set of communities and demographics! That article was completely lame! Lake Bluff/Lake Forest is still a great place to live. P.S. Lake Bluff was listed last year as one of the top 10 coastal communities in the U.S.!

I dont know about you guys, but I look forward to the blotter every single week.

I do too, Stevie!

Cold, snowy Winters? But what of all of the 'GloBULL Warming' that Al Gore and the Libs claim is supposed to ensue? Should we not be overrun with palm trees on all of our parkways by now?

As a former Lake Forest and Lake Bluff resident .....born and raised in beautiful and very unique LF and LB , I am here to attest when I graduated from LFHS Class of 1976 I came west to Phoenix , Arizona to attend college. First at Phoenix College then onto Arizona State University. My parents retired from LF to Scottsdale Arizona in 1980. I got married and stayed put here in the "Valley of the Sun". Believe me places everywhere change to a certain degree. Phoenix has changed and grown tremendously. Too much crime, horrible air quality , gangs not to say too much heat fir far too many months. Thank god are sons are grown and both out of college. Both immediately relocated to cooler much nicer and far more educated cities. Believe me Lake Forest and Lake Bluff and their citizens are diamonds in the rough. I would give all the palm trees in the world to still be living there. If reading the police blotters news is disagreeable by all means visit Phoenix Arizona and it will make it crystal clear that you are extremely fortunate to call LF and LB home.

If a high school student DIDN'T have pot on him, THAT would be news! C'mon, no one remembers the 60's & 70's here? Oh, I know about the phony moralists, I read Catcher in the Rye!

Q: What do college of lake county and Arizona State students have in common? A: They both got in to Arizona State
Stevie Janowski February 28, 2013 at 07:06 PM
I would say 99.7% of high school students dont carry pot around the halls of lake forest high school, but keep packing that bowl Carlos!
