Overheard on Facebook

The best catch of the week goes to reader James A. Boskey, who caught a mistake I made in the link to a story on the Mokena Patch Facebook page.

I think you'll be able to figure out the mistake I made from reading his comment.

James A. Boskey Um...we're supposed to spring forward, not back.

Yikes. My bad. It was right in , though.

A story that got some really great feedback on the Facebook page (seven "likes" and two comments) was a photo submitted of .

Dawn Machroli Searle This is the kind of news I like to see!!

Nancy Marino Arndt Proud to see my daughter be part of it. Good job student council!

Another big talker was our breaking coverage of .

Nancy Rosenbaum Potter It almost seems impossible to believe it was a car, wonder how they did it!!

Gail Hoffman Bastas My van (with my 3 kids in it) was totaled a few years ago by a senior who mistook the accelerator for the brake pedal at a stop light. Police say she was going 40 mph. Luckily, no one was hurt back then or now.

Voices Speak Out on Mokena Patch

By a country mile, the most-commented-upon story of the week was our breaking coverage of .

Another talker was . One reader had some ideas for how to make the market more about Mokena and less about out-of-towners hopping in for some cheese and leaving without spending money at downtown businesses.

I think there should be a place for local residents to sell their wares in the Metra lot at a discount price. they should also let crafters come in say once a month to sell their wares with their own tents and tables to be set up in the Metra lot going down toward the other businesses on the street.
