I have read a lot of negative posts regarding the bicycle that has been DONATED to Port Byron, Il. First of all, what is wrong with you people in Port Byron? You say you want improvements to the town, but you won't specify what types of improvements. I would like to know out of all the people who had a negative comment....do you regularly attend the board meetings? Did you even know that Port Byron has a town meeting? Get involved in a positive way if you want your town to improve. I refuse to spend money in Port Byron anymore. I just recently walked into an establishment and was glared at from head to toe. I grew up in Port Byron and my ancestors were some of the founders of this village, but since I don't come here but once a month, I am treated as an outsider. Everyone needs to chill out and learn to be friendly to anyone who is willing to spend their money in the establishments of Port Byron.

Quit whining and take a few hours out of your schedule to get involved. Maybe if all of the complainers tried this, they might understand the meaning of community.
