Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that Rock Island has been making a change for the better since Schwiebert has left.

Naming a park after Mark Schweibert, considering the effect he has had on Rock Island over the past twenty years, is like naming a park in Berlin for Adolf Hitler. He brought a depth of corruption to Rock Island that hasn't been seen since the days of John Looney. To think that Rock island was finally rid of him after twenty years was a breath of fresh air. However it appears all the cronies he put on various boards had to pay him off somehow.

why name the park after a man that didnt do anything for rock island, but to put it in debt, and did we realy need it. we needed more naborhood parks through out the city not one on the river , i can see a child end up falling into the river one day , mark schwiebert was only a puppet. phillips was the one to tell the maror what to do . so much for the park .
