Thank you, for all that commented so far. I think the main reason & few of the people here will agree with me that there is a lot of trash around & you know what I mean by trash(I don't want to say it to be acused of being a racist when I am not). If we can clean up the city & get rid of the trash, then this city can be a good city again, but if we let the trash run us in the ground, then nothing will get done.
Now who agrees with me on that one.
If you're not a racist then why do you need to make up code words for the race you think is trash? How can you say one race is trash and then claim not to be a racist?

Once again, I am not claming a race. Please for crying out loud when I use the word trash you know what I mean. Another thing when why does people think I am racist when I say trash. Really, you people on here need to grow up.

I read in the paper that mayor Ed was talking about trying to get a big development on route 3 and 270 which I think would Probally be a good spot for it but the city needs to hurry up and get on the ball before its too late. Also what happened to the development out by lowes it just sits empty like the developer is not even trying to get businesses. I would like a White Castle myself its just mine and my kids favorite place to eat on a speacial occasion.

I was asking what the hell you meant. You are the one who made ambiguous, hard to decipher statements.

It isn't that you mentioned trash, it's all the beating around the bush about race and your claim that you wopuld just say trash because you didn't want anyone to think you were racist, but we all know what you meant.

If you are not racist, why bring race up at all?

People might think saying trash is another way saing your racist. I am not racist(I don't even got a racist bone in my body),but you got people think that I am cause I word it diffently. If we really want to clean this city up its not the mill we need to get rid of its something else & we all know what is.

I am not racist(I don't even got a racist bone in my body)All cause I word something diffent does not mean I am racist(cause its not claming a race.)If we really want to clean up this city, its not the mill tha needs cleaning up it something else.

White Castle brings in two major things. Drucks and blacks.

Before any one says it, no I'm not racist. I have one hanging in every tree......

Best Buy is closing stores so that won't happen.
Maybe if the people of Granite City would support their local retailers others would be willing to build in GC.
Fairview isn't that great of a city any more. They have police officers on duty at Chuck E Cheese because the adults can't control themselves. Denny's closed because of the gang violence. The mall isn't very safe either.
Chuck E Cheese should host our next klan rally. Might clean it up a bit.
