My family and I live in the great state of Illinois, then i have lived in the Village of Orland Park since I was in elementary school.
I went to Carl Sandburg High School which is right outside of Chicago.
I never wanted to leave the Village of Orland Park, and I eventually started working for the Parks Department. I recently had an encounter with someone that I remember from middle school. I was working at the lake on a warm and sunny morning, however the park was crowded with visitors because of the lovely weather, people were picnicking and walking the trails. I was sitting at the guard shack for a while, enjoying the AC. It was 95 that certain morning! When my boss came back from supper, he sat down in front of the AC and sent myself and others out to the park to check on the boathouse and the snack shack. I saw the guy from school, fishing on the side of Lake Sedgwick. I decided to walk over to say hello. The guy was acting shifty and he seemed enjoy he was in a hurry to leave. I thought he was blowing myself and others off, however then I decided to ask if the guy had a valid fishing license. It’s pressing to have a valid fishing license issued by the state of Illinois. If you are caught fishing without a license, there can be a easily stiff penalty. When I asked my seasoned classmate for his license, he admitted that he was fishing illegally. I decided to provide the guy a warning instead of issuing a ticket.
