This blog is not about Wilmette. There are a lot of great topics to discuss. What about the new New Trier budget? Please stick to your topic. There's a whole Wilmette community that has interesting topics.

This post is about early voting in Wilmette, which is about Wilmette. Wilmette is only one part of New Trier. Anonymous, I will be happy to read your posts about the New Trier budget--not so fascinating for me--if you would leave some reference to where they could be found. Do you mean the Township budget? It isn't very big and there is not much to say other than its a little over $2 million, with a less than half going for administration and the rest goes to social services. Also, there are three links on this post for further information about the NTHS referendum. The news in Wilmette of late is a murder of one of its residents, somewhat unsettling and a family's grief and desire for privacy at a horrible time is at stake, and a lady who was flim-flammed out of several hundred thousand by a man who represented himslef as a boyfried. She also doesn't need this discussed in a public forum.
