Not sure how to even begin this😢
So close to Christmas and all but
VICIOUS KILLER PIT BULL
needs to be removed IMMEDIATELY by Plainfield authorities.

On Friday, December 18, 2020 both of our Toy ShihTzus were murdered by a neighbor's vicious pit bull. The dog broke thru our cedar fence onto private property and within 30 seconds killed our first baby, weighing only 3.8lbs and right after went after our baby girl weighing only 4.6lbs. They had no fighting chance with this 100+lbs vicious Pit Bull. We had made several attempts to speak with the owner of the dog so she would take responsibility and pay and No luck. She has shown no remorse and is plain heartless. That same evening, we went knocking on our surrounding neighbor's doors and making them aware of our tragedy and for them to use caution ⚠️ when letting their small children or small pets out on their yard unsupervised. Prior to that we contacted Plainfield Police, Will County Animal Control, HOA and Mayor Collins to have this vicious dog removed immediately so far No action has been taken from their part. So disappointed in the Plainfield Village Authority figures but we will not give up and we demand justice for our dogs. They did not deserved to died the way they did. We took our precautions as we were well aware that in our parts we have coyotes roaming freely. Never in a million years would we taught our babies werent safe in their own enclosed back yard. We have gone an extra step an started a petition to have this VICIOUS DOG REMOVED IMMEDIATELY. He does not belong in a family oriented community. This careless, heartless Pit bull owner has no remorse for what her Dog did and is not taking responsibility for her wrongful dog doing. Not fair. If this happend to our little dogs what guaranteed do we have that he won't attack again.
We honestly dont feel safe 😢 having this vicious dog in our community. We want him removed immediately.
We need your support. If anyone is intrested in viewing the footage from our surveillance cameras to confirm our story we would gladly submit. Just be mindful that its horrific footage and need to be of strong mind to process it 😪 .

Thank you,
The D'Sepulveda family.

Good morning neighbors. Just wanted to say that it's the little things that mean the most to me especially when it comes from someone that doesn't even know me, but just wanted to do a good deed for the day. I pulled into McDonalds at 15810 south Route 59 in Plainfield this morning after a long 12 hr shift last night to grab some breakfast because I am to tired to cook. I was the only one there which was awesome in it self, and I order my food and when I go to pull around to pay a car pulled from the gas station and pulled in front of me and pulled to the window. I figured they order some food before and was charged to much for the order so they came back to get the correct change. Well come to find out it was a police officer in a blue unmarked car I think it was. He waited until I ordered my food then he jumped in front of me only to pay for my meal and he pulled off. I couldn't believe it. When I left the parking lot I was hoping he got caught by the red light but he disappeared so quick I was amazed. I really wanted to thank him and tell him how sweet and thankful I was. So who ever this kind officer is if u happen to run across this post, Thank You so much for making my day and putting a smile on my face. I definitely will never forget this day. I have and will keep this receipt and I'm definitely gonna tell this story to a lot more people today. It's the small things that mean so much to me. Happy Holidays everyone. Be safe and take care.

Now, for something a little frivolous and fun, a casual survey:

What are your favorite three Xmas movies? Very tough to choose, but today I'm going old school with:

--"A Christmas Carol" (1938 version--almost a tie with the 1951 version)
--"Christmas in Connecticut" (1945 version)
--"White Christmas" (1954), but in a tie with "The Man Who Came to Dinner" (1942)

Side recommendation: technically this counts as radio, but David Sedaris reading his piece about regional customs and legends, "Six to Eight Black Men", is hilarious. Heard him do it live at Chicago Theater and the audience cried from laughing. Cheers!

Here's an interesting interactive map of all US hospitals reporting on capacity of their ICUs and their number of Covid-19 patients:

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/covid-hospitals-near-you.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage

Here's the note re the data for this map:

"Source: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services data. A hospital may not appear if it does not report this data to H.H.S., if its data was reported through a parent hospital or if its location information was not available. Percentages above 100 may occur when hospitals report patients beyond their normal limits. Circle size on the national map view corresponds to the hospital’s total I.C.U. capacity."

Further, from the top of this story: "Almost one-fifth of U.S. hospitals with intensive care units reported that at least 95 percent of their I.C.U. beds were full in the week ending Dec. 17, as the coronavirus pandemic surged to alarming highs. Nationwide, 78 percent of intensive care hospital beds were occupied."

More reasons to do our best to wear a mask, watch our distance, wash our hands, and get our vaccinations as soon as we're able.

I drove through downtown Plainfield last night and saw restaurants open with indoor dinning and patrons with masks removed. This might explain why Plainfield was 2nd highest city in Will County with COVID infections. I thought bars and restaurants were not allowed indoor dinning?
