I heard that Obama was looking at Lockport for his "presidential library". Any suggestions for him?

Violin, anyone? Too bad the last council did absolutely nothing to fill that spot. Oops, forgot they did rent some store fronts! Violin please! Give this council time, they are just getting going and they are doing a swell job. They have hired an administrator that knows Will County and watch us move! They have only been there a few months and already people talk positively about our town.

THAT'S all they've done so far?? Hire an administrator?? IN THREE MONTHS TIME??THAT'S what you consider a "swell job"??

Who, exactly, is talking positively about our town??

The rest of us have NOT seen the same rainbow-farting unicorns with diamond-encrusted hoofs that you apparently have since this mayor and council stepped in. You, specifically, hyped up this new mayor and council, relentlessly, and so far, they have not impressed us in the least. Put the crack pipe down lady, that shit'll kill you.

Right on! He is on here again trying to deflect his record of NO accomplishments in all the years he served. Did you read the card that was put out of how he went against the Target and Home Depot. We know exactly who he is and why he is pretending to denounce this council. Way to go, Lockport, you are already proving yourself to be a respectful unit unlike the previous group. And, no more NO BID contracts! Transparency has come to our town! It must really hurt this guy to sit there and see the council being what a government body should be...respectful to the public and also answering to the public. It goes to show that the people chose the right ones and that they are not listening to what was given them all those years. They can only attack us now through this means. Sticks and stones break our bones, but words do not hurt us! And listen, drool face sixty sixty sixty year old, you are a nobody! How does it feel to be a nobody? You are still attacking the messengers and we are not ladies....so keep it up....as you give yourself away, old man in your beautiful house! You are a forgotten nobody! All your remarks show your lack of intelligence. The people chose people that have intelligence and the others except you and Mary have faded into the background! Violins, please! The new administrator of this town will show you a thing or two. He is well schooled in government and you are only ONE vote. It is great the way it turned out! Violins please! Go to your hundred computers and make all your little faces, who cares, nobody!

He wants in three months what they had years to do and what did they do...nothing! Guess what, that is why you were not elected, people do not elect people that do not get things done. And you did not! The three grandpas got their tails whipped in the election process. It was a show of strength on the people's part and they are quite happy. Nobody is complaining but YOU!

I was wondering how long it would take you, Ms. CRONE SCORNED, to bring up, YET AGAIN, your most favorite person in the whole world! The man that you consistently feel the need to serial-post about obsessively! You made it to the 8th post! I bet that hurt, I bet you were chomping at the bit to get it all out there at least by post #2!

And *sigh* the "faces". Listen lady, the rest of us don't see these "faces" you see. Maybe this will help you out with this issue.....it's always good to be well-informed (Please pay extra-special attention to paragraph three, second bullet point):

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/schizophreni...

So. Just call your shrink in the morning and tell him you desperately need your Risperidone upped, maybe the 'faces' will go away *fingers crossed*

*sigh* also, I am NOT the love of your life, I'm NOT the man who gets your cobweb-covered vagina all tingly, I'm SO NOT KT!!!

However, bullet points #1,#3 and #4 of paragraph three in that article also apply to this other difficulty you are having (as does Paragraph five and ALL THREE of THOSE bullet points!):

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/schizophreni...

KT IS OLD NEWS!! HE DID NOT WIN MAYORIAL BID THREE MONTHS AGO, HE NO LONGER HAS HIS "majority", and when his current term is up, will most likely NOT ever be an alderman, or hold ANY political office in this town again, SO REALLY, WHY THIS PATHETICALLY CONSISTANT OBSESSION TO BRINGING HIM UP OVER AND OVER AGAIN!?!?!?!?

Oh yeah, that's right, I FORGOT! We already figured you out!! What we all surmise is that YOU must've hit on him or made a pass at him at one time or another that was strongly rebuffed, and his "uh, no thanx" (while he was trying to hold back his vomit) got your crusty granny panties all twisted in a knot!

YOU ARE A CRONE SCORNED!!

He is trying so hard with his insults of a third grader. Facts are facts and he can't take it. We will never quit! His ploys do not work anymore! He can keep counts or whatever makes him feel good and his vulgarity is easily tracked. We know who he is. Sorry you have to put up with his nonsense trying to deflect his non accomplishments. As far as someone liking him, he IS insane. He has not looked in the mirror lately. No one would ever like him. Why did he use his picture from years ago on his poster? It is a fact! You can't stop and at least be sensible, not a serial poster on every site. Who cares if you run again, you are irrelevant. Keep trying, you are such a boring make believer!

That could be a valid statement whether from your make believe friend or an actual person that does work at Target Corporation. It could be as true as saying that the Cubs will win the World Series every year from 2014-2024. It could happen but we know it wonít. Luckily for the good people of Lockport there is a much better chance of Target actually coming to Lockport one day than the Cubs have of winning one World Series let alone several. The time line is what matters. I donít really care if Target comes here 20 years from now but I do care if they build here within the next five years.

My question when I hear statements like yours is what ancillary businesses have signed on to move here with them? Do you have any friends at those companies that can tell you when they are coming to Lockport too? You are never going to see a big box retailer like Target open up a stand-alone store without the support of another anchor store and the ancillary businesses that round out the development. I havenít heard anything about companies like Panera Bread, Ulta Cosmetics, TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Michaels, Old Navy, Best Buy, Home Depot, Dicks Sporting Goods or any of the other usual suspects that make up these developments which leads me to believe you are just trolling. But hey you got what you wanted, a response.

Yes, they will come eventually. Right now Walmart is in need of some competition. Ten years ago you couldn't get out of those Superstores without blowing some cash. These days you are lucky if they have anything in stock. I have to ask if we really have the economic base to support the tollway retail center? Most of your shoppers will come from Joliet because their retail centers are unsafe and blighted.

By asking if we really have the economic base to support a tollway retail center, are you thinking that we might not have enough residents of Lockport that will spend their money there? I very much think we will. As it stands right now, many Lockport residents, including myself, already do a majority of our shopping in surrounding towns, anywhere but here, EVEN Joliet. Not only for the reason you stated about walmart not keeping their shelves stocked, and their false propaganda of "low prices, always" (should actually be "low WAGES, always") as once they were established here, their prices rose higher and higher to the point that you really don't see much difference in their pricing (of groceries) compared to Jewel and/or Berkots, but I believe the main reason Lockport residents shop in surrounding towns is the total lack of variety here. You ask people what stores they would want to see here and it's usually Target, Kohls, Lowes (or Home Depot, Menards) Michael's (or Hobby Lobby), HomeGoods, Meijer, OfficeMax, Barnes & Nobles, etc.....everything that Lockport lacks.

We could also really use some sort of younger-crowd entertainment establishments here in Lockport such as a movie theatre, miniature golf, batting cages, roller rink or dance-juice bar (such as Mike T's of Orland in the early 90's or Crazy Rock of Romeoville in the late 80's BEFORE it became a strip club)...anything of that sort for the 13-18 yr olds, not only to keep them off the streets causing and/or getting into trouble but also to get them off their butts away from the internet and video games. Not to mention, studies are already showing that all these recent years of electronic communication amongst that age group (starting at a young age) are dramatically stunting social development and communication skills in a bad way, so some social activity establishments such as those mentioned above would be beneficial.

If you build it, they will come!

Strop Club that's the answer. They always bring in money which would increase our tax base. Plenty of room along 355.

its too bad our Lockport "leaders" don't have any vision of what that area could be - they only see a big box store or two. Other communities have great retail shopping areas made up of smaller stores - Orland has 2 such areas and both are thriving with restaurants and shopping and very pleasant to look at (and that's a whole other issue, with the 'build anything we will accept it' attitude Lockport has). If only the people who make such decisions would actually drive outside of Lockport to see what other areas are doing.
