It seems like every town has their restaurants, bars and VFW's all adding machines. Orland, Oak Forest, Tinley Park and Crestwood all has them popping up everywhere...just to name a few neighbors.

So basically the local communities and governments are going to use gambling addicts to create revenue for their townships? Using these people with problems as a battery to give life to the leaders of the township and to the state?

Nobody who has money is going to gamble at these places.....only people on welfare and with very bad addiction issues.

I know there are ones in Crestwood, my point is that we have two now in a block radius, so I guess a bunch of gambling diners is better than empty storefronts right? Hey what the hell just add more liquor stores and cash loan places, they all go hand in hand. Good job mayor, you've been in office for a year now what have you done so far?

My point those are close to each other. They are everywhere. My question is and I am not a Sharon fan, but what did the other Mayors do?

Let's talk about now, the past is the past right? Can't change that. So what has been done in the last year to improve Midlothian? Where are all the team Sharon people now? Besides getting jobs at the village hall.

Old Family Pride building 1/2 occupied, Advance Data Systems building business coming soon, 7-11 Building occupied, Old Watson Building business coming soon...just to name a few.

Not the quickest turnaround BUT you can't say things aren't changing.

Again...would be great if we ALSO were filling Walgreens, Sentry (which 'just' went vacant by the way), 147th & Cicero...and many, many more vacant buildings.

BUT...to come out and portray as if the new group was seeing absolutely NO success in getting businesses to come in...well that's just plain silly.

It's obvious that some small places have moved in, but how much has the mayor had to do with it? I bet that most will be closed within a year or two anyways. We need something that the whole community can use, like shopping. I don't own a motorcycle why would I care about that place opening, I don't drink or gamble either,don't care about Dotty's or Elsie's place, and I have a job so I don't need a Title Loan. But I do have to grocery shop.

Well motorcycle shops thrived in this community for many years (we had two prior to the recession) and in other communities they seem to hold strong. Title Max seems to be ok in other, more affluent communities (the one in Orland comes to mind)...anyway, tomorrow is promised to no one and these or other businesses may close tomorrow.

And yes, who knows how many of these, if any, came due to the current regime...BUT again, when someone comes out and says nothing is going on...it's kinda untrue.

Cheers!

Nothing is going on that makes this community attractive to buyers or people wanting to raise a family. How about that mess that's called a park district.
