FYI...

The Weekly Reporter is owned by Phil Petrakos, Kelly Turner and Tom Kelly of Lockport and John Gabriel of Joliet.

Phil claims to work for the Secretary of States office and is about 400lbs. Kelly Turner is on his 7th try for office in Lockport and Tom Kelly is certified insane old man.

John Gabriel writes all the stories...all of them. He gets most of the scripts from Turner. Gabriel has alias writer names such as Ralph LaPorte, Miles Goodson, Mark Goodson, Kenny Holmes and Lindsey.

Phil was helping fund the paper through an unauthorized full page advertisement purchase and donations from his Greek buddy / manager at Mazda of Naperville until the out of state owner found out about their scheme and now thatís over. Now they are banking on getting legal advertisements from Nancy Schultz Voots on their one year anniversary to keep the little paper afloat as they have NO revenue.

So hey Roger and Noak, do you know who your friends are guys. Will your fellow Republican Voots take our taxpayer money to fund this political newspaper???

They probably researched it. Who cares.

How did this get in the Bolingbrook forum anyway?

The Weekly Reporter is the paper reporting on Roger Claar. From what I hear several more hard hitting stories are set to run the very near future.

FYIÖ
The Truth Squad is actually a political activist working for Venezuelan Dictator Hugo Chavez. He is also a gay activist who has been known to take money from the Log Cabin Republicans to promote the sale of Lincoln Logs to the innocent children in our public schools. He is currently working under the auspices of Karl Rove, Sarah Palin and the Jonas Brothers to build and underground network of sleeper cells to promote the sale of the ShamWow through late night infomercials. He is also attempting to blackmail Will County Clerk Nancy Schultz-Voots into changing her name to Nancy Shoots-Ducks at the behest of the National Rifle Association and Ducks Unlimited. Hey Roger and Noak, do you guys really need a friend like this defending you?
Innuendo is a two-way street my friend and I've now proven as many of the facts in piece as you have in yours.

What shows that "Truth Squad" is a POC is that he immediately tries to tie Phil Petrakos' weight into something amiss.

Not only will I bet Mr. "Truth Squad" has friends or associates who are overweight that he would never dare bring their weight issues up face-to-face but I will further bet he has went horizontal with some pretty hefty partners too.

A notice I said PARTNERS.

Pretty obvious he didn't like how the Weekly Reporter brought even FURTHER attention to Roger's drunked stature.

Karma will catch up with Claar. Because karma just has a way of dropping in at the most inopertune moments.

Phil Petrakos is like 550 lbs, his stomach enters the room 3 feet ahead of him. Karma might catch up with Claar, but Phil's as$ will never catch up with his belly, not even by a nose.

The Weekly reporter is lower than a rag. John Gabriel was fired from the Weekly Times so he started the Reporter. He hates Police, Republicans, Judges and creates stories that are not true against them. That Phil is a wheeler-dealer always looking for an angle to profit by. At this time I find it hard to believe that Turner and Kelly have anthing to do with that Rag.

Gabriel is also an ex-con who's probably taken it in the backside frequently while in the joint. He's unethical, dishonest, a stalker, not to mention a certified moron. It's well known by locals that he has his nose planted firmly in Bonnie Kurowski-Alicea's tush. He's supported by a Greek? WOW! Weren't they the one's that started the homo movement way back in historic times?

All indications are that the "Weekly Distorter" no longer exists. It's former office on North State Street in Lockport is now vacant and has "For Rent" signs hanging in the windows.

Gramps,

It's just as well. The public has enough toilet paper to use without adding Gabriel and his "paper" to the mix.

The Weekly Reporter will continue to report on Mayor Claar's pay to play politics and corruption. The newspaper is alive and well and not going anywhere. Just a change in address. Many, many more stories will follow on Roger Claar and his gang. Mayor Claar should come clean and sit for an interview immediately.

Maybe you could do a few articles on Bonnie and let us know what her PhD is in? It would also be helpful if you could interview her and ask her why she claims to have a PhD when she doesn't since she has not done a dissertation?

While you're at in, a good investigative reporter should be able to find out when the drive by shooting happened at BHS and why it was not reported in ANY news outlet.

It would also be helpful if you could research which towns in the US where residents pay NO property taxes at all (including schools, park district, library..)

There are more topics but this would be a good start.

Thanks!

John, John, John!

You appear to be as delusional and crazy as Alicea. Just who do you think you are to demand anyone be interviewed by a hack like yourself? You wouldn't know real journalism if it snuck up and bit you on the a$$!
