what a smart man he his,not putting his mansion on the hill or his or wifes future earnings on the line for this,but yet putting the whole city and their ass on the line for something they do not want to pay for in the end,guess we can get an added surcharge for using city streets to drive on,a personal property tax and then another surcharge for the water bill to pay the college water bill.
West Frankfort is the best,the city of opportunity.

They are not smart enough to be another 3abn,however wolves in sheeps clothing at city hall can guide them.
I am hoping people will remember what has happenend during our current mayors term of office and do something different the next election.

Morthland college is a lying, cheating, no bill paying scam. They use everybody's money but theirs.

Again getting into bed with the college?
Sorry some of us are working in order to pay bills, feed our children, save for college,(no pun intended), secure a future that looks to be NOT in West Frankfort, so could not attend the meeting.
Why on earth is the city sticking their beaks where it does not belong.
Hey can anyone get a loan buddy or is it just the college?
I understand trying to bring revenue to town with the college students but so far I have heard more grief than good.
Just say in'

Hello redbird fan :-)
I know a lot of people think its a far fletched idea right now . Because everyone doesn't see instant results right now on the college , but it takes time . We have 2 junior colleges right now , which I've both attended , and 1 university ( S.I.U.). Any college brought to a town is gonna help the economic standpoint of the town in time , although Rend Lake College . I think would have been better

Any college brought to a town is gonna help the economic standpoint of the town in time , although Rend Lake College . I think would have been better in a bigger town , but it has brought in more revenue to the town of Ina . John A Logan , I know has brought in more revenue in Carterville il . Just look at the businesses that was built up around the college, gas stations , eating places , for the students . That's more revenue, jobs , economic growth for their community . Plus it makes the property value of the town goes up. With the Morthland college thing , it's not just west Frankfort that is helping them , it's others lending money too , I know what is put down on paper and with hear say , people only can speculate about what's going on , once people go to the meetings and hear what's going on with their own ears , only then will they get the true answers , it might not be what they want to hear , nor then again , what they've heard through other people , but they can can they heard it from the city directly . I know one thing , when it comes to politics , it all takes time . With all due respect to local state and American government agencies , there is so much to do for everyone, and so much red tape . There's only so much, they can do at once , there is some people out there in local state and American government that has more than their plate full on what is needed and what has to be done , and with only so much resources and time in one day , with all that I've written down here , I know there will be some that , still won't get the whole picture , maybe because of my wordings , but West Frankfort sure does need a lot to help it grow , and the city is full aware of it , to coin a phrase Rome wasn't built in a day , all I can suggest is that more people show up at the meetings , give ideas , show support , and listen to what they have to say , once again then and only then , will people know what's really going on !!!! Rumors as we all know , is only very little truth to them if only just a bit of it , everyone always adds a little bit more, to the story as it goes on, to make it sound better, as each person tells it to another , to keep it going and make it more interesting .:-)

Vern,now that you and your girlfriend wrote all that,what the hayl are you saying?That city is one hundred percent behind morthland college,even if the citizens have to pay for it like it or not.
Going to a city council meeting isn't really worth missing a shift of work,to listen to them only tell what they want to tell and then going into executive session ,comming out to end the meeting. I did see you there with your lips pooched out and in an kissing stance.They are not going to hire you because you go to the meetings and get treated like a mushroom,"kept in the dark and fed crap".YOU,young man do not have the right last name to work for west frankfort.Nor are you related to anyone that does have the correct name.,nor are you even friends with any of the name brand people,Your best friend and girlfriend "manny" are as close as it gets to being a friend of a city dummy. Get real Vernell!You just keep stimulating the economy of this city buying "manny new clothes.

Hey it's my girl friend , I'll do what I want , why don't you grow some balls and put your real name on here , or are you afraid all your skeletons will come out of your closet , better yet everyone will put a real name , with your stupid comments, on stuff that you really have no idea of what your talking about !

Relection time this city hall needs to be shoved out.Lets find some people with a little common sence. We pay a lot of taxes and to watch this city waste money is not right.
My grandson has stated we could save this town.I have told him we can serve better doing what our family has done for decades.
We will watch and remain silent for now.

Reminds me of that big Factory Outlet that was first labeled a shopping mall. It was going to bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars and tour buses from everywhere to shop here....WF was going to grow like Marion and Mt. Vernon!!! LOL!!! I'm sure this college will grow into another John A or Rend Lake too......Dummies!!

Sitting around watching,and remaining silent is just what the city leaders want.They also want to treat everyone like a mushroom,"keep them in the dark and feed them crap "!

Remember when they filmed a movie at VF. As I recall it was filmed under the name, "Goodbye Sunrise" and released title "Poor White Trash"... Not quite as famous as the Dixie Mall from Blues Brothers, but probably will fall the same fate soon enough.

We discuss this Morthland College situation with locals .And yes most know very little about what our city leaders are currently doing .What can people do besides going to the meetings .Thats a waste of time.
