Graffiti Grill has a new menu, a new team running the kitchen (though they’re hardly strangers to Lake Bluff), a new attitude, and, soon, a new name.
The League of Women Voters writes in the Reader Forum: “Make A Difference! Join with business, civic, and political leaders along with your neighbors in supporting a petition drive to change the redistricting process. Recently the City of Lake Forest passed a resolution encouraging voters to learn about the redistricting efforts by the coalition group Yes! For Independent Maps.”
Allison Godwin Neumeister shares the story of new life in a Ugandan village: “At 1:00 am my host mother, Robina, went into labor. There are no cars or ambulances in Bumwalukani, unless the military or the U.N. pass through, so transport options are limited to motorbikes or foot. Though Ugandan women can balance on just about anything, sitting sideways on a motorcycle at nine months pregnant poses many risks. The road is rough and dangerous, with long stretches of deep mud and large potholes. The only safe option, particularly at night, is to travel to the maternity ward on foot.
