Hello everyone,

This post is to inform you all that Suburban Life Publications has decided to discontinue coverage of the Peterson case. Now before anyone starts having heart palpitations, this means we will no longer be running the blog but the blog is not shutting down. An independent third party has agreed to take over maintenance and moderating duties so you will all still have a place to discuss the case.

As for me, I’ll be covering the city of Berwyn for Suburban Life. I’m excited about the move, which puts me much closer to home, but I will surely miss this. I can honestly say that this blog has been one of the most rewarding projects of my career and, although things got a little messy at times, I’ve enjoyed sharing the last year with you all.

It was a little bumpy at first, but I think that together we’ve created a truly unique space for discussion and news dissemination. I have faith that this can continue even without our involvement. This blog was always for you all anyway, and now it will belong to you. So, I thank all of you for your continued readership, passionate discussions, and for all that you’ve contributed to help make this small experiment into a success.

And with that…so long, it’s been fun.



Your Thread – January 11

Hi everyone. I just wanted to let you all know that the post on NBC’s Web site was NOT me. We have strict rules against commenting on other sites. If you ever see a post claiming to be me that is not on this site, then it did not come from me. And any post from me or any other reporter/editor from our company on this site will always be under gatehousechicago. Sorry for any confusion.
