It is not only boys who are fighting in school and contending with school authorities. And it is not only kids. Debbie Wilson, 45, from Chicago, and her 26-year-old daughter, also named Debbie Wilson, got into a heated argument with a school administrator, and went ballistic! The daughter pulled out a knife, and stabbed the school official in the back and also stabbed a security guard! Meanwhile, the mother was beating up school staff members with her fists. Worse yet, the Wilsons thought they were in the right. What?! It wasn't long before they were caught and arrested. At the bond hearing, the Wilsons' relatives said that the charges were unfair, and one said that the arrests and charges were "all wrong." But the charges weren't wrong! The only thing wrong and unfair was what they did - taking the matter in their own hands and harming others! I hope the Wilsons are sorry for what they have done, but they probably still believe that they were right... unbelievable!
Did you hear that the gas prices are going up? No, not for your car... for your home. The Illinois Commerce Commission voted 3-1 to raise Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas bills, starting in February. Plenty of residents spoke up against any price hike, and even pleaded with the committee members, saying that they couldn't afford it. But much like the Zion-Benton High School Board which raised taxes despite pleas from residents and business owners, it fell on deaf ears! More on that in the future!
