When Clark Oil was here, not to long ago. They would pay for the parade and fireworks. It was kind for the CSX company to pick up this years cost of fireworks.

This is why B.I. is the way it is. Uninformed voters. In life, nothing is free. Do you think CSX is paying for the fireworks because they are a bunch of nice people? No,they pay because they pollute our community. You are stunad.

Yes, we are inconvenienced by the trains every day. The fireworks were only half an hour.

Thank you CSX for the thousands of dollars in water damage as a clear result of the construction of the rails at 127th & California.

As a result of workers placing rock piles directly on top of drain pipes at Wahl & Union standing water formed from Union to 127th street .Water was well over the rails by two feet.
I was taking a photo of the obstruction when a CSX worker questioned my doing so.. CSX workers an hour later using a back hoe tractor relocated some stone to address the flooding which created a serious band of racing water & debris which went s/b along the rails from Union to York st. There it rushed over Folgers Flag onto Beggars Pizza property and into residential yards and basements. As I took more video of the rushing water a CSX truck drove by while watching pedestrians and vehicular traffic navigate the flood waters. PLEASE PEOPLE OF BLUE ISLAND STAND YOUR GROUND AND VOTE FOR A BETTER LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN ELECTIONS TO COME . DON'T BE AFRAID BE STRONG .. Chris 7/12/14 1:00 pm

Half hour fireworks display in exchange you receive a flooded home, ruined yard that u spend money and hours to enhance your home . Thats right, Vargas rents and lives in a Vincennes apartment & the safety director lives out of town.
