Local Facebook pages will let you know everything that's going on with local businesses.
As a new editor trying to figure out the ways of the Glen Ellyn world and someone who relies on the internet for practically everything, I've been mining Facebook pages to see what local businesses are up to.

There really is no such thing as true privacy. I remember when I was in junior high school. We used to write notes in class, fold them really cool and then hand them off to someone for delivery.
