Can someone please tell me why the gates at Lakeview cemetery are locked at 3:30 p.m. in the afternoon on a Sunday? I contacted the PD and the officer said he doesn't have a clue as to why they were locked he just came on at 4:00 pm. I did tell him I was a taxpayer in this town and as long as I was out there before dark I should have access to the cemetery. Then the officer proceeded to tell me...I don't know what to tell you! Good ole JC government hard at work!

Somedays they forget to unlock it all. If you call you're treated with the same disdain the mayor and the council treat the people of the town. Also like the mayor and council, all you'll get are excuses and shifting the blame.

The goof troop may win this election, unopposed, but they will always be just a bunch of losers. A seat on the council or mayor won't change that.

Whateva....I was out there today trying to get in and the main road into the cemetery was clear. The city police are to go out every morning and evening to unlock / lock the gates. I've seen them out there many times locking and unlocking it....that's what the cops have to do with it! The police officer informed me this evening on the phone it was his job to lock it up at dusk.

Four years will be what this mayor and council will plea bargain for to avoid a lengthier sentence. Trust me on this one....

Oh and 1 more thing, whateva....they had a burial at Lakeview today so after the funeral the officer on duty locked the gate so they didn't have to go out and be bothered with locking the gates up at dusk. So I guess the road conditions at the cemetery aren't that bad or there would have been no way they could have buried someone's love one today.

when a body has to be buried they have to do what is necessary regardless of weather.
The city did a good job cleaning the roads and god forbid they didnt scrape the roads at the cemetaryso your whiney self wouldnt have anything to gripe about. Why dont you take your negative energy and jump the fence, lol! Im sure your deceased loved one can wait on flowers. Whiney asses!! IIIIKKKK.

I've noticed you Goof Troop supporters make a lot of disrespectful comments toward the dead. Guess that explains why they have let our cemetery go to the worst shape by far it has ever been in.

Whateva....did u not read my previous post. I stated the main road into the cemetery was cleared. If the roads out at the cemetery are not cleaned off and I choose to go in to visit a grave and I get stuck it then becomes my problem. I do know how to use a telephone to call a tow company if I were to get stuck. Also this has nothing to do with the streets In the community and whether or not they are cleared. I do believe that's one of the city's jobs to keep the snow removed and also to mow the graves that they have failed to do in the past.

They either have to get to Interstate 57 to write those traffic tickets, or are on 57. That's why the cemetery and other parts of town get ignored.
Thank Keith Boyd, Bart Lind and Jim Mitchell for that.
People all over Southern Illinois are still talking and laughing at Johnston City over its Interstate toll booth.

Wrong Priority....I don't agree with JC police being on I57 either. However, JC is hardly the 1st to do this. All you have to do is drive down I57 to Cairo and you will find, ISP, County & City police running radar on I57 in Pulaski and Alexander Counties.

I doubt if the Johnston City police want to get the reputation of Pulaski and Alexander Counties.
ISP has the jurisdiction of the Interstate, and does not have city crime to deal with, thus giving them more time to be running radar.
I just don't think having one office dedicated to writing traffic tickets on the interstate (or anywhere else for that matter) is the best way to spend a shift.
This was Boyd's silly idea, and should be stopped now that Boyd is no longer around.

I hope the JCPD doesn't get the reputation of Pulaski & Alexander Counties! They write tickets for 2-3 mph over the limit!

A bunch of high school educated business men who can only fullfill their pathetic lives by being a member of Johnston City government. A group of people who care only about the title of mayor or alderman and care nothing about the people of JC they're supposed to serve. A group of people who raise water bills on the poor and elderly for no reason. A group of people who have created such an environment of hate that qualified people will not run for mayor or council. Yea, sounds like a group of losers to me.
