"Andrew Adler, 57, likes to ride the Des Plaines River trail in Lake County — especially on portions he has not RODE before"??? Did/does anyone ever proof read? Or perhaps they did and all should go back to school and take English classes.

Nothing is worse than bad grammar and spelling errors, and I noticed it when I read this as well. However, the most important part of this story is that Mr. Adler is missing and his friends and family are asking our help in finding him. Let's all focus on that and hopefully, we can get him home.
