Your right Toni I dont have Children. I do own my own property, here in Sauk Village, and a nice spred out of state. I choose to live here. I could rent my house to a section 8 family and make 1700 a month, but I dont. I stay because its mine. And no one will take it or make me run and hide. I was born and raised here, most of my family too. Why should I leave? You left and our town is better off without a looser like you who probably rented anyway... I bet your neighbors had a big party when you left... I know your type your the old lady who sits inside looking out into everones buisness starting rumors and spreading lies about everyone and everything. I would rather die fighting for something i beleve in than die running scared.

You friend sounds like a pervert. Who stops to talk to a little kid that late at night. Your friend is probably out looking for little boys to pick up.

It's been going on for years and years, especially around the Brookwood area, it's just not talked about much. A friend of mine was at a stop sign and a kid about 14 walked up and offered to blow him for $20. He was disgusted that this kid would be doing this and that this child was out so late at night, as it was very late in the evening.

Here is the answer to the problems in the South Suburbs. As a young male, I am planning on running for a local office. I am tired of the complaining and I am going to try and tackle the issues and resolve them. I hope everyone who frequents these forums would consider running for a office and change the way the crooked politics are.

I am not the Toni you are writing to, this is someone else. My kids are NEVER out late at night, the person using the name Toni is an attempt to make you think it is the same you are conversing with.

No, I paid for my house, I was not a renter and before you go saying what a looser I am, you should know I dontated 20 years to Sauk Village, literally, the PD, the FD and ESDA and don't think I even remotely made money off of it. If you had kids, you'd think much differently about it. Your children's safety would come first, not your big balls. NOTHING is worth the safety of your children, NOTHING. You have an advantage over most people in SV-YOU HAVE NO KIDS-many of us do have children. You keep walking those streets, with your big balls, you are 1 itty bitty person against several GANG members, they will eventually hit your house, you'll hear the gunshots-and if you have no kids, you doubling taking piece of shit-you stated you were upset because of the school system in one of your posts-why be upset? You have no kids, what does it matter to you? Nothing, because remember, you have big balls. Your name wouldn't happen to be Jebus now would it?

The trouble is all over the village.. Indian Hills used to be the quietest part of the village, but that has all changed within the last 5-7 years.. Back in 1992 when I moved here, I was told by SVPD that Indian Hills was as quiet as a cemetary and it was.. There weren't a whole lot of kids in this section back then, that was one reason why it was so quiet.. I have also noticed that Sauk Village is a transient town.. Most people who buy houses here only stay for 3-4 yrs and then they move.. There are only maybe 5 families left on this block that were here when I moved here.. All the rest of the homes here have been sold and families move in and then they leave.. Gee, I wonder why.. Could it be that the town is getting worse and worse to raise a family in?

Once again, 16 year Taxpayer is right on target. It doesn't take people very long to figure out that the schools they are sending their children to are academic and financial catastrophe at its zenith. Or to have their cars broken into in their own driveway multiple times, if their windows aren't broken out for tollway change from some crackhead on the block.

Sauk Village never used to be a transient town. Since 2000 the town was allowed to spiral down in flames which is well documented both in these forums and blatently obvious just by driving through it and seeing all the abandon businesses. Just driving through the town and seeing this along wih 40 oz. beer bottles in the grass, boarded up homes and the droves of mental midgets that feel walking down the middle of the street is alright to do, in spite of postes signs stating the contrary.

I'd be very suprised if Sauk Village ever fully recovers from the economic and diversity train wreck Mayor Peckham and his administrative cronies sat back and did nothing about.

It saddens me to see how Sauk Village was once a nice place to raise children, but day-by-day it is becoming a dangerous place to live. I moved to Sauk Village while in my early twenties in 1984. I loved it; it was a very peaceful place. Sometimes you ran into ignorant and prejudice people, but most of the people I encountered were very nice. I felt my children were being brought up in a safe environment, and I was content. I moved from Sauk Village in 1989 for personal reasons. In 2003, I moved back to Sauk Village, and it was so different. It does not seem like the same place I moved from back in 1989. The mentalities of people have changed tremendously. I am not going to blame the breakdown of the neighborhood on all Section 8 tenants, because everyone on section 8 is not bad. Many are hardworking people who are trying to make a living for themselves like the next person. I am going to blame it on people who neglect their children by not guiding them and giving them structure, the drug addicts and drug dealers, and people who do not seemed to value keeping up the property for which they live. It is true, if crime is not where you are, it is coming. It is almost impossible to run or hide from people who seem to not want anything out of live and who values nothing, including the upbringing and rearing of their children. Whatever happened to teaching our children to respect, and obey authority figures, to respect their peers and the property of their neighbors? I don't know what else to do; I have tried reaching many unruly children in the neighborhood to no avail. Many of these youth need love and attention, and sadly, they are raising themselves. Many of the children, lack supervision and discipline, and as a result, they have gone wild. I have concluded that as soon as I graduate from Governors State University, I plan to relocate. The neighborhood is getting too bad, and I am becoming afraid to continue raising my children in the neighborhood. There are not enough people in Sauk Village who are willing to stand up and fight for their neighborhood. If Sauk Village residents would stand tall and fight for their neighborhood, I would gladly fight with them. By nature, I am not a runner; I am a fighter, but one canít win the battle alone.

Your not helping anyone slamming our town with every breath you take!

Once again, you managed to miss the point all together. Point being, people donate their time and resources for the better of the community and, as long as you are doing something for them and don't make waves, they love ya, but boy, uncover some SHI% and they suddenly hate you. People need to be very careful when they donate their time, even though I wanted to and chose to, it still comes back to bite you in the butt and nobody cares what you've done, what you've given up, they only care that you can BUST OUT THE RECORDS CLERK AND THE FORMER DC and have to get rid of you. DON'T LET ANYONE FOOL YOU WHEN THEY THANK YOU FOR HELPING THE TOWN, THEY ONLY MEAN IT IF YOU KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!

Sorry to dash everyone's perceived notions that there are NO PROSTITUTES in Sauk Village, but the firsthand account I got from my ex-neighbor that used to live here is that while he was waiting in line in the drive-thru of Dunkin Donughts (yes, that recent) he was solicited by an African American female an offer for oral pleasure at 6:00 A.M. for $20.00 which of course he emphatically refused.

Now, whether or not this woman was actually from Sauk Village or not remains unknown. However prostitution is everywhere.

To prove this, look no further than Craigslist and a few searches for Sauk Village in key areas turn up ads for this. To prove my point, check out these links...

And...

But I will warn you, it's not what you expect...

Oh, and don't shoot the messenger.
