On a day where evil rose, the best of America responded. Be they 1st responders who ran in getting others to safety, to the everyday citizens who stepped up to save others...in every conceivable way; they became heroes. Though 20 years has passed since September 11, 2001, we must never forget. May all who lost their lives have rest and their memories be a blessing.

Good Morning Residents!
A message from our Mayor and the Police Dept:

April is "National Distracted Driving Awareness Month," and the Calumet Park Police Department, through the Illinois Department of Transportation Distracted Driving Grant, will be conducting enforcement of the distracted driving laws throughout the month.

Motorists will see an increase in patrol and traffic stops targeting these laws.

So remember to use hands-free and Bluetooth devices or pull over to a SAFE location to take that important phone call or text message.

"Stay alive, don't text and drive!”

What the actual heck is wrong with people setting off fireworks in the village? Three HUGE explosions on 127th. and Racine. My dogs are losing their minds and Juneteenth is over and the 4th of July is a bit off. Blue Island is issuing $750 fines. Might be a good idea here.
What the heck happened? Heavy traffic down Racine.
