  • Mr. Brown has provided a valuable service to Evanston youth and to this community for many years. 
  • As we were preparing the article on Evanston’s part in the September global climate strike, one interviewee commented that, although the City and several private local groups are working toward lowering Evanston’s carbon footprint, the community has no ongoing protests against climate change.
  • It seems we are living in such a time now. The rise and growing reach of the internet has radically altered the way we communicate, do business and manage our lives. Huge and increasing disparities of wealth challenge our idea of what a just and equitable society should be. The increasing power of China in the east and nativist populism in the United Kingdom, Europe and America are roiling national and global politics. Toxic social media and civic strife are on the rise.

  • In our Oct. 31 issue we said that our advertising revenues did not match our expenses. To keep the paper in print this long, senior editors have foregone any salary and employees reduced their hours and volunteered their time. It was time to call it quits.
  • The current Zoning Code expressly states that the requirements and conditions contained in the code to hold a special event are “to ensure that temporary [special] uses shall not impose an undue adverse effect on neighboring streets or property.”
  • There is an old saying: “Death tugs at my sleeve and says, ‘Live, I am coming.’” Very true. Live now, live fully. That is the point of life. And when the time comes, living fully will make the end easier.
  • An overdose of caring can be as harmful as any addiction, disabling what is really needed – the toughest kind of love. Responsibility is rarely heavier than that.

  • Our paper has published stories on Foster School, redlining in Evanston and redlining in Chicago. These stories are available on our website, evanstonroundtable.com. One story in our next magazine, which will be available on Nov. 14 with the publication of our paper, is titled “Developing a Segregated Town.”
  • Taxpayers not only footed the bill for that extra month, but also have received a budget balanced with a 10% increase in the combined City and Library property tax levies. This will amount to an increase in the City’s portion of the property tax bill, which is approximately 20% of residents’ total property tax bill.
  • The President and Vice President of the District 65 School Board have partnered together and conducted meetings at which they, top administrators of the School District and top leaders of the District Educators Council (DEC, the teachers union) have met for the purpose of discussing important issues facing the School District and reaching shared solutions.
