For years an out of state property owner, Mr. C. Earl Jantzi, has rented his house, 43105 N. Delany Road, Zion, to a crew of auto repair shop owners who have been illegally operating a terrifically thriving business at the residence.

Dozens of vehicles come and go from this shop daily. It was a filthy and crowded shop with fire hazards everywhere. Dozens of cars were parked all over the property in various stages of repair.

How much of our tax dollars did it cost to have at least 12 fire engines and many, many more emergency vehicles and personnel to extinguish a 3 hour blaze that never should have started in the first place had zoning and compliance officials responded to numerous complaints about this illegal auto repair shop?

Do you job, Zion! I don't pay taxes so that other homeowners can skirt the law and allow illegal businesses to be run out of their residential properties.

While this property may have a Zion 5 digit postal address, it is in unincorporated Newport Township. The City of Zion won't do anything about it because it is not in Zion. You should be complaining to the County

“I looked outside and saw my husband’s garage in flames,” she said.“It’s just a hobby, but we were storing some friend’s cars inside.” This is what the tenant had the gall to say to the News-Sun. An out and out liar! And that dog that alerted them? They keep it chained outside, just like the junkyard operation they are. FOR SHAME!

What a bunch of hooey. They have been getting away with operating a high volume auto repair shop out of this residence for years. They rent the property from a guy that lives out of state.

The same identical situation exists at 2115 Elizabeth avenue. Mostly, the owner and several other people work on motorcycles but takes delivery on any anything the runs on gasoline. Says it's just a "hobby." Bull! Aside from being dangerous, the entire neighborhood has to endure the loud noise and morons racing motorcycles around the neighborhood all the time. Do we have to wait for a catastrophe to happen before the police do anything about it? That is incorporated Zion proper, and there's no reason not to do anything. As long as we're discussing illegal business operations in residential areas, take a drive by 2201 Elizabeth any afternoon and view the garbage dump/auto graveyard/trucking company that guy created out of a house he rents. Another big nuisance.

They should take a lesson from this fire on Delany Road. The tenants operated a firetrap auto business with cars strewn everywhere, welding operations, it was a horrible pig sty.

We are all just grateful that not anyone was hurt in this fierce blaze. It infuriates me to think firemen put their lives in danger extinguishing a out of control fire like this because people want to operate bullcrap businesses with no regard to safety of their properties or others nearby. I'm surprised this fire didn't travel to their house or other houses.

The tenant was quoted in the News Sun saying it was a "hobby shop" and they were storing some cars for "friends". It is an illegal automotive business that does a very brisk business given how often tow trucks come and go from that property. It's going to take someone losing a life to get the notice of the proper authorities.

Do you job, Lake County!

I noticed the two "clueless" replies concerning Cat's comment. I'd bet it's from the morons living in either of those two houses. Why don't we race our cars, trucks and motorcycles past Mayor "Do-Nothing's" house all day Saturday or Sunday and see if we get some attention brought to this issue.

I'd bet you're right. What we should do is race our cars down the alley between Elizabeth and Edina and see what happens.

Wa Wa Wa Wa. Hey...It's Kristen Camel Toe. I bet Uncle Remis down the street thinks he could show you a thing or two (inches). Something he learned in prison during his Aretha Franklin impersonation period.

That piece of crap used to live on Elizabeth in Zion. Charles Black is his name, an ex-con who never paid a dime in income taxes most of his entire life or never did much more than collect welfare. Was a cook at the long-time defunct Green Tomatoes. Sold drugs and tried to start a car repair business out of his house there as well. Daughter is a Nigcubator and son is doing time for posession and dealing. Finally evicted and the neighbors had a big party. They were squatters. No gas, electric or water. Typical n!@@&rs.

I used to live on the very same block as those people. He tried to start an auto repair business out of his house there about 5 or six years ago. What filthy disrespectful people they were. We had a neighbor who put a stop to that and forced them out with a great deal of legal hardships.

Those scumbags are still around? That is Charles and Juanita Bevely Black. Law enforcement in the town is a disgrace. Guess I'll have to start writing letters to the States Attorney again.

My brother-in-law is and auditor for the IRS. We recently viewed both of their criminal records on Lake County Circuit Clerk's website. What worthless scum they are. Claiming "poor" as not to pay fines and damages. They owe everybody. The Village and County may let them slide but the IRS won't.
