Room for a View: Self-Love: Don't Live Life Without It
A therapist once told me that the greatest gift parents can give a child is self-love. But I have learned over the years that self-love is a gift you give yourself. Parents certainly need to give love to their children, to teach them how to love, but loving self ultimately has to come from within. Parental love is an important piece of that process but love from within is at the core of a meaningful life and is not always easy to achieve.

The Warren 'Billy' Cherry Scholarship Fund Celebrates 25 Years

The Warren “Billy” Cherry Scholarship Fund was created 25 years ago in honor of our brother and brother-in-law after his untimely death in 1990.  Since its inception, the Fund has awarded financial scholarships to 216 Evanston Township High School graduates.  As we reflect on the past 25 years, we ask the Evanston community to stand with us as we look to the future. We hope, by sharing our story, we can reach more people, award more scholarships, and keep alive the legacy of a man who truly embodied the essence of Evanston.

What seemed like a straightforward request by Sixth Ward Alderman Thomas Suffredin at Monday night’s City Council meeting erupted into something else, as alderman berated their colleague for suggesting that there should be a map denoting different parking areas throughout the City.

Room for a View: Oneness: Myth and Reality
The good news is that most humans are stubborn dreamers who believe in and seek a better self, a better world. They seem to know that, paradoxically, once accepted and understood for what it is, the myth of oneness is a reality worthy of pursuit.

More Room: Device Advice
Good news: my 9-year-old grandson Ben sleeps over most Tuesday nights. His dog Juney sleeps over too. We all sleep together, in one bed, for a hilarious, deeply sleep-impaired night.

Clarifications Regarding Evanston Lakehouse & Gardens and City of Evanston Negotiations
There has been a lot of activity in the press and social media following the City Council’s recent vote on April 9 to not continue negotiations with ELHG and not to accept the lease as presented on April 9.  In an effort to provide accurate and complete information to the community, our Partners, our supporters and our donors I am providing this statement and responding to some of the statements that have been made which I believe do not provide complete or accurate information.
