The Northwest Herald reported this morning on last Thursday's little escapade in the Jewel-Osco parking lot. The reporter called yesterday after he heard about the police report and after he talked to Sheriff Nygren.
I appreciated Brian Slupski's call, and he reported my side of the story pretty accurately. And I'll venture a guess that he reported Nygren's side pretty accurately, too. Too bad that he didn't "get" that side of the story accurately.
The "restaurant" mentioned in the article. Not really a restaurant at all. It's a bar. Try the Red Mill on Lake Avenue in Woodstock. As I told Brian, my car has never, in the 11 years that I've owned it, been in the parking lot at the Red Mill.
Two copies of the same article appear on www.nwherald.com The first was published yesterday, shortly after the reporter and I spoke. The second, with a different headline, was published today. Re-publishing the article means that the many Comments are divided between the two articles.
To find both, search for "Philpott" or for "blogger" on the Northwest Herald's website. Nineteen comments appear for yesterday's article, and the count at this time for today's article stands at 35.
