Rough week for NBK....Fire chief arrest is icing on the cake. STILL NO RESPONSE FROM VILLAGE LEADERSHIP. HOW PATHETIC.

Northbrook used to be such a nice village to live in. Sounds like its Chicago jr with all of its crime & politicking. If the residents were smart, they'd vote for a new city council. After all, they're the ones who took away the Jesus nativity at Christmastime.

Liberal democrats liberal politicians. Moved section 8. Welfare crowd to northbrook.... So. There you have it.... Destruction of quality of life. Think about that when you vote!

Agree with Mrs. H.....Most residents are not too smart as the turnout for the upcoming election will most likely be minuscule. If all these events are not reason to get out and vote, I do not know what else will wake up this town of ours. I believe that the Jesus nativity is still in that location near the train. Yet, baby JC has to be bolted down to prevent someone from stealing him.
