I received a fine education while attending Hammond Elementary and Harrison Tech High schools, then the U. of Ill. in Urbana.

Of course, that was sixty years ago. Have things changed since then?

The yuppies don't seem to like it and can you blame them? It's nothing but an over-rated, overbuilt, cookie-cutter home community with the WORST traffic congestion in the burbs. We moved out of that suburban cesspoll years ago and never looked back.
And you moved to Addison !!!!! Ha.
