Funny, first its the mexicans, now its the blacks really?????? Where is your town located at? I will gladly lead my people out of YOUR TOWN if you tell me where it is. Second, not all blacks live in the ghetto, not all whites live in the ghetto either. I was born in Libertyville Il and raised in R.L nowhere near the ghetto. Stick to the topix and leave race out of it please and thank you.

So all i ask is think before you talk and yes i already knowe that my grammer is crap
I can not even begin to tell how awful your grammer is and there is no point because "i already knowe that my grammer is crap".
Round Lake school?
If you know your grammer is poor, perhaps reading your own post prior to hitting the return key would benefit you. It would give you enough time to correct your mistakes.
If you know you have a problem and still utilize your choosen words, it is no longer a lack of knowledge but a choice.
For the record, it's not only you that knows how poor your grammer is. Now it's everyone. Nothing to be proud of.

you have to be one of the biggest redneck morons I know (or don't want to know). You have alot of nerves. Letting the negros in? Are you serious? I grew up in round lake moved there in 86 when I was one of 4 black kids in the entire school. I have never been a gang memeber, sold drugs, shot a gun, or any other description you have in your very limited thinking. I think you should remain in your small world thinking that blacks are only good for failing and commiting crimes, because guess what I live in a town were there are few blacks and 85% white, I volunteer at the schools working with failing children and guess what there white but I don't pressure them into staying in that state. God say love thy neighbor as you love yourself, obvious you don't love yourself. Consider growing up and be a person of influence and change instead of spreading your hate behind close doors and being a computer bully, we need less of that in the world, I'm praying for you Jesus loves you.

Or could it be they started refusing biggots and people of severe hate. You know it's pretty sad that people speak there minds behind close doors and in front of a computer. What about us who've never lived in a ghetto, oh and there are deprived white folks too, ya think. Instead of spreading your hate on line why don't you get involved and try and fix the problems our society has. I grew up in round lake, graduated from the high school. Was one of 4 blacks in the school at the time and I never lived in a ghetto, shot a gun, sold or did drugs, not an alcoholic. So what claims can you make that were all criminals and gangsters or failures. I work in the schools in grayslake that's about 85% white, with the kids who are failing out and guess what? There all white but I don't see color I see potential. So get involved and stop your complaining and hate spreading. The bible says to love thy neighbor as you love yourself, how much love do you have for yourself bot much from what I've read. Jesus laves you

I would like to say the 90s was the best time of my life because of the roller rink first girlfriend there first kiss that place was amazing the all nighters where so much fun but I must say they did this once they started the hole dance after 9 or somthing it's a place to skate not dance in the middle while others are trying 2 skate my reason is commenting is no matter if u where black,white,yellow, green or 20 30 or 60 the second you walk in there is smiles fun and memory's so my thing is they just needed the right owners to run a place like that I'm 28 now n have been skating since I was 9 I am trying to find someone that owned that property buy it and make roller rink 2 make it the same as it was built b4 it got torn down I want my kids to feel the same as I did when I went so for all those who had a blast there I'm trying to rebuild it to the T once I find who owns that property

It was a family environment. They let the kids do what they want to have fun. Moms could push kids in the strollers, kids could run around and do pretty much what they want. Debbie and Val did more for the kids that went there then anyone realizes. My kids were always up there and stayed out of trouble. They had a great time there. The Fox Lake rink has so many rules, kids cant be themselves there like they could at the R.L. rink. I know my kids miss going there already. We hope one day soon that the rink will re-open and Deb and Val will own it again.
Thanks Chad !! We appreciate all your Positive Feedback !! Family - That's what it is Allll About !!

I grew up going to the R.L roller rink in the 90's and my children enjoyed going there as well, Val and Deb tried to provide us with something that the kids could enjoy doing and that alone they need credit for. There were alot of kids there but that's what i believe it was meant for the kids....I don't recall seeing gangbangers there and if there were they never cuased problems. In my opinion this was just another thing taken from our children....
Much Love Much Love !! Thank You !!
