Link to the Village of Skokie Newsletter

This is one of Ron's favorite Terry Proudfit stories...
 
I had been dispatched to a traffic dispute in the parking lot of Skokie Valley Hospital.. A couple on a motorcycle and the driver of a car were coming near to blows over an incident that happened.  I was trying to get them calmed down to no avail.  Terry arrived as my backup and saw that the verbal altercation may soon become physical.  He grabbed me by the shoulders and planted a big kiss on my cheek.  All of a sudden the people who had been arguing were just standing there with their mouths hanging open in disbelief of what they had just seen. Terry just smiles and told them, "Now that we have your attention, just get on and in your vehicles and get out of here."  Not another word was said and the people just drove off shaking their heads.  Needless to say, I was just as shocked as they were, but if it worked, what the hell.

Former Desiree Restaurant Will Meet Wrecking Ball

After numerous plans to revitalize it over the years failed, and because it's deteriorating, the village of Skokie will raze it.

In its heydey, the Desiree Restaurant had a cheerful red wraparound sign. However, it has sat vacant for years, defying attempts to revive it. Patch file photo.

Though many Skokie residents have fond memories of the former Desiree Restaurant, its building has sat vacant for years and given a forlorn look to one of the village's most prominent intersections. 

No more. The Skokie village board on Monday okayed a plan to buy the building for $1.175 million, demolish it and interest a developer in building a new development on the site.

Hi friends,
I found this while cleaning my shop, I don't know the age but Larry Leganger is on the front and in the roll call photo, Al Kloch was a patrolman.
