Kristenslaws activist Helen Finneran returned to Steger today checking on a town shattered and still wondering how and why this tragedy occurred. Petitions are being signed asking for gates to extend over busy crosswalks so pedestrians as well as automobiles may be protected.

At the Video Village where Marielle Anderson was employed, Dirk a friend and co-worker has a petition available along with several ways the community can contribute including a Dinner and Dance Benefit hosted by the Crete area Jaycees. Please stop in and show your support. The Video Village is located at 3345 Chicago Rd. in Steger. Their hours are 10:00 am 11:00 pm seven days a week.

Kristens Law author John Davis plans to meet with Steger village officials to discuss which avenues will be pursued to see that this tragedy does not repeat itself and to discover what Village operations are underway to support the Anderson Family in this time of need.
