I am on the committee for the Oneida Old Fashioned Homecoming 2010. Our homecoming will be held July 16, 17 and 18. Our parade is scheduled for Saturday morning, July 17, at 10:00am. We have contacted our local High School (ROWVA) band director to invited the band to march in our parade. The band director said it would be too difficult to assemble the band for our parade during the summer.

Would you have any suggestions where we may get a marching band for our parade?

The mechanic told me that it the poblem was my altinator ... So i had the work done... paying 200 for it because they decided to throw a belt on as well... i didnt ask them too.. so i go to pick up my car and t is still has the same problem. They told me there were more problems.... another 250 in work... by happen eveything that needs work is not under my warrenty... So i was told after the fact that the altinator was going bad and it needed replace n e ways... What can i do about this situation.. I feel like if the mechanic did his job right he would found the problem.... The work that they said i still needed done makes no sice because the said a valve is lettin oil in the plugs which is causeing the car to die.... but my dad said there would be smoke coming from the tail pipe which there is none. I think sice its tax season there just tellin me what ever ... anyone can give me any advice bout the car of Soliz's shop please give me some advice... i dont think i should pay for the altinator bcause even if it was going bad IT could have lasted 3 days or 3 months... it wasnt the problem thats for sure!

Forest Hill Health and Rehab, in East Moline are closing their doors. The owner is telling his employees that it is for a remodel, but in all reality he is closing. They are moving their residents into other facilities with no notice. They have over 30 Mentally ill patients, and they are moving these patients into facilities with no separation from Geriatric patients. They have already closed down their Dementia wing, and have moved those poor residents out of their routine, and normal surroundings with no warning to a facility with no separation, and the staff has no training. His employees are being forced to break state laws with no choice. All of them will be with out jobs, right before the Holiday season. Something needs to be done!!!

I bought a jeep from Kimberly Chrysler for supposedly $27,900. With $20,000 down. When the contract came up it was for 30900. They added the difference to the trade ins. They never asked me to get extended warrantee, after I asked about the warrantee and they said it's still under factory, nothing more. We'll I went to California for Christmas and came back and turned the jeep in to get checked out. They returned call today I had to pay to replace a ball joint. The warrantee expired 50 miles ago. Then a few months later the jeep started leaking and basically raining inside the jeep so I took it back to them they tried to fix it about 5 different times, it isstill leaking now because they told me I would have to pay $900 to get a new sunroof. I've only owned this jeep for a year and a half. Does this sound fair to you?

I went to Lujacks Honda in Davenport, and was trying to get financed for a car. Well, I didnt know about their horrible reputation before hand and ended up getting screwed over financially. Lujacks refuses to work with me on the deal we made. I wouldn't recommend ANYONE go to Lujacks AT ALL unless you're prepared to get screwed over immensely.

I was recently informed over the Easter weekend of horrifying and terrible news, and i can not find a way to find justice for the animals or to prosecute the one that did it. I was informed that there is a farm house just past the air port road. A farm house that left behind dozens upon dozens of animals in their cages to be left to starve to death and die. The dead animals bones were left behind and the man that was renting the farm house took off for florida knowing that he was leaving the animals there to die! There was cat,dog, and goat bones left in cages all dying from starvation and dehydration! All i am asking for is a little bit of help to get the one or ones that did this to realize that this is a CRIME AND TO HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE FOR IT! i called Scott county humane society but they need permission to go on the property. Cant they get a warrant for reasonable cause do to go onto the property. CAN YOU PLEASE … PLEASE HELP ME OUT????

I hired tri state roofing back in August to get a new roof worst experience ever finally had to fire them they had e every excuse for not showing up. The last straw was when I called the city to see if they had ever pulled permit, they never had which means they had no intention of ever doing the job. My delema comes with the fact that they still have all their materials still in my driveway! They promised to pick them up for the last 3 weeks and haven't! Any ideas what I can do? I have pulled my own permit and hired other people. What rights do I have to get these abandon materials out of my yard? Anyone who needs s new roof never deal with tri state! 3 excuses rain being one I can understand that! 2 my workers were In a car accident and the third time they were scheduled he text me that he had fired his crew! How has this company stayed In business? Need help just want their materials out of my yard
