This is an extremely sad occurrence. Had the tractor been equipped with a roll bar and seatbelts,Read More and used by Mr. Bork, he would be alive today. I have been fighting with manufacturers to make roll bars and seatbelts standard on lawn tractors, small front end loaders and other similar pieces of equipment. Roll bars are inexpensive and are almost 100% effective in preventing operator deaths in very forseeable roll over accidents. If anyone has more info, I would like to add it to my data base - to try and convince manufacturers to include roll bars in their equipment and to prevent any more families from going through what the Bork's are suffering now.

It is highly unlikely that the blood and urine tests that were presumably sent to the police labRead More have even been tested yet. Further, any tests at the hospital are considered of little value, and even the hospital would admit that they are non-confirmatory.

The Daily Herald reports Szot was co-president of SADD, or Students Against Destructive Decisions,Read More and helped plan Red Ribbon Week, which typically encourages students to be drug- and alcohol-free.

Let them kill each other? What about the one's who don't die and need millions in healthcare for theRead More rest of their life? Who pays for that? All of us! Stop the violence and ignorance!

Watch your KIDS it's up to you to teach them right from wrong NOT the police!

Stop the revolving door of justice(nonjustice!)!! Once they are involved in a crime involving a gun,Read More they should be sentenced to Hard Labor.. That's right, just like the Old Days!! No more of this crap where they lay around and get free room and board! Put them out in chain gangs and let them work! Screw the bleeding hearts who want to be nice to felons! Most of these people are hardened criminals..once again, if you do the crime, you do the time..But, now make it Hard Time that may sway them to straighten up!!

ATTENTION PATCH EDITOR ET AL.... This fellow Louis Fasullo needs to be reported to localRead More authorities. His comment is not only highly confused...but also borders on a confession of sorts. Check into his ISP address...and contact appropriate persons.

jesse's lips look like he enjoys servicing men in prison!

Dale: Silly boy, the title of the article merely states the fact that the accused attended a bibleRead More college in Indiana. Nothing about his religion; if any. Only attendance. Do try to be attentive, before you,(again), post falsely.

What a dummy...if I was the girl I would NEVER speak to him again, ever...he could easily haveRead More gotten her arrested & charged b/c she innocently revealed details about her job duties...trust is something a relationship is supposed to be built upon & not using that trusted information to commit an illegal act.

@JonAzavedo: I was trying to demonstrate compassion, and dignity. Obviously two traits you don'tRead More possess.
Jon Azavedo July 16, 2014 at 07:24 pm
Prediction three-DJP also posses the traits of naivety and ignorance. Compassion and dignity for aRead More killer, a cheater or simply the dead?

New from the Beacon: "Hallock granted temporary permission for extended media coverage ofRead More Shadwick’s appearance after a request was made by a local media outlet to have a photographer at the hearing. King’s defense objected to Hallock’s decision." OOOOOOOOOHH,,,,extended media coverage......and the games begin.........

May she rest in peace, and may her family and friends somehow find comfort.
Jeff July 8, 2014 at 04:21 pm
Agreed...the fact that Patch has used this headline 3-4 times already is not appropriate. Once whenRead More it occurs and once when the facts are known is enough...

I think nut case would be an understatement. I'm glad he was caught it's one less psycho to worryRead More about. Rest in Peace to the victims!

People are still falling for the Banana in the tail pipe trick, huh? Don't you think you wouldRead More know 100% if you owed the IRS or another entity that much money? While access to the internet can help aid the enemy in defrauding the public, the same internet can be used as a tool to defend it. Here's a funny story: After Nigeria was eliminated from the world cup, the Nigerian captain personally offered to refund all the expenses of fans that traveled to Brazil. He said he only needs their bank details and PIN numbers to complete the transaction.

Okay people! A young 4 year old child drowns and some of you feel the need to lecture the reporterRead More where the pool is located and the dangers of water? This is NOT the time nor the place. This family and their friends are in a pain that we can never imagine. So save your pontificating for another time. They need understanding, our prayers, and if you are not religious than just think of them for a quiet moment.

DJP, I saw a kid drown so I want to share that experience so that I don't have to see it again.Read More Possibly someone may read this article and instead of thinking it is a "tragic" accident will learn that it is an avoidable occurrence if society would be more vigilant. We can't help this child or this family. I wish I could take their pain away. Discussing how we can stop future incidents makes this a perfect place to discuss this. Summer is the best time as this happens more often now, yet I saw a kid drown in an indoor pool in the winter. Bad things happen in life and we must confront them, learn from them and hopefully reduce the occurrence of them. Go to the Vaughn Center in Aurora and see if they post a picture of what can happen there when a parent does not follow the rules and have their kid in a life preserver and stay within arms reach of them in the pool. I doubt you will see a picture of an enlarged purple head with veins popping from lack of oxygen. We cover up the bad, let it happen over and over because we don't want to inconvenience society or make people feel bad. They provided life vests, had two lifeguards yet a kid still drown. Why? Because he was 4 and not old enough to be unsupervised in the water, even for a minute or two. So you may not want to hear it but it must be told, no matter if that Mom reads this post, because I don't want another parent to experience what she did that day. I just wish I got to the side of that pool a minute earlier.

ok, another kid drowns in Bridgeview, too many, watch your kids people!!
