You mean like the new subdivsion in flooded acres that people are trying to move out of and can't because nobody wants to buy the homes. And the lovely new mosquito lake that sits at the corner of 5th/Tommy Dr./Young. He might not be the doushe bag as referenced in an earlier email, but he certainly doesn't need any parade.

So you move on from bashing the mayor and the board members, to bashing the HIGH SCHOOL football team and the HIGH SCHOOL cheerleaders. What a bunch of adults you must be, to be able to sit on a computer and talk a bunch of shit about SOME HIGH SCHOOL KIDS. Now really, why don't YOU GET A LIFE!!!!

I called the school last week and spoke with the superintendent regarding the situation and he informed me that they WOULD be gone by the end of the month. It appears he agreed (without approval of the school board) to allow a FEW pieces of equipment to be stored on the parking lot as a favor to Ron Dell and the city (who has helped the school out in the past). I got the feeling that the superintendent felt he was mislead (did not realize the extent of the equipment and the disgrace it would bring) and regrets his decision (he said SEVERAL people have called to complian). It does look horrible and makes me sad that our leadership made a decision that devalued our town once again. I did remind the superintendent that he does not live in this town and should think about things carefully before making a decision that impacts those of us who do call Dupo home.

Nope it was decided on by a couple of people. The school board and city council knew nothing about it. So going to a meeting would not of helped.

First, I'm not in high school. As if that really matters anyway. Second, I'm not a dope smoker but thanks for you concern. That is not who I am defending. What about the high school kids that work their asses off to get somewhere in life? You can't mass-group them into one. They are all individuals. I guess it makes you feel better to sit on the computer as a so-called "adult" and talk down on a bunch of teenagers. Man, you must have really screwed your life up to take it out on a bunch of kids. Like I said, get a life. It is not your place to sit here and make fun of a bunch of high school KIDS!!

done for this town!! List it !!!
for one, we are finally getting businesses to come here. we should have had fast foods and alot of other places of business here years ago. we could have had hardees, mcdonalds probably a walmart, the idiots that ran this town a few yrs ago didn't want it. at one time the town could rely on the railroad, now it's just a small part.

no bodys perfect, the taxes i believe are assessed by the county if i'm not mistaken?? we have ALWAYS had a mosquito problem in this town, it was alot worse in the 70's before the interstate was here and did away with that precious "wildlife preserve" everyone bitched about. the mayor isn't perfect, but he's sure as hell not the worst we've ever had here!

I will soon be a new resident of Dupo so here goes, the carnival rides did not turn me off to Dupo, they are parked neat and orderly and from what I understand this is just temporary. We have been looking for a new home, believe me there are other smaller communities with worse problems. You do not want a WalMart to move to town, other than providing a few part time jobs they demand so many concessions from a small community that you will never see any benefit from that, check WalMarts history with other small towns, And congratulate Springfield Illinois for not letting them move in there.
Offer incentives to small business owners, especially small production employers, show your town off as a small and safe community to be in. There are things that can be done to "showcase" your community such as putting your town on the web, I was frankly surprized that Dupo does not have an official website. Dupo is not even mentioned on the St. Clair County website, these are things that can be done fairly cheap and easily. Make it a class project for the High School students or something.
Put up some "Welcome to Dupo" signs, get the State to put up a sign showing there are gas stations available, you see them everywhere else.
The thing is; do not sell yourself short, make suggestions, think of ways to attract people to your community.

Off my Soapbox, Thanks.

THESE COMMENTS ARE SHOWING HOW SMART YOU ARE. IF YOU DON'T LIKE THEM BEING THERE DON'T LOOK. OR TALK FACE TO FACE NOT BEHIND A COMPUTER. GROW UP ITS PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO GIVE DUPO A BAD NAME NOT CARNIVAL RIDES. IF WE WORRIED MORE ABOUT THE KIDS IN OUR TOWN INSTEAD OF LITTLE STUFF LIKE CARNIVAL RIDES DUPO WOULD PROBALY HAVE A BETTER REPUTATION.

Mom of 3 Question #1-Where did the Carny rides go? Question #2 Is it true that the Carny rides were moved to make room for the cheerleaders to do their Hip Hop Strip tease routine? and Question #3 (this is your final question Mom of 3) Are you just naturally an angry person, having a bad hair day or in the time of your month that your emotions are bursting out?

Jack get a life and figure out the difference between the "cheerleaders and the "dance team". Were your kids too ugly to be on the squad so you have to resort to picking on the girls who are. These girls work hard and practice alot to represent their school so give them a break.
