A lot of positive things happen here. Ned does do a good job for the city and you can't make everybody happy. LETS HEAR SOME GOOD THINGS

Humm thats a tough one. The side roads are in terrible shape. The taxes are high. The park has trash all over it, the homecoming royalty is won by collecting the most money. The mosquitoes are bad.. not just this year every year because they don't spray for them. There are 4 bars in town and only one over priced grocery store. Sesser school is known for being one of the worst in the county for bullying.

Other then that I guess you CAN say its quiet.

if you don't live in Sesser what makes you think your two cents is worth anything to anyone? Why don't you go bitch about your own city? I do live there, have my whole life. I have watched the city diligently work hard every summer to put in more paved roads. If you would like to experience bad side roads take a little road trip through Christopher or Benton. Taxes are high everywhere, its one of the two absolutes in life - you pay taxes and you die. The ticket sales from the homecoming candidates goes back into the following year's homecoming expenses, no ticket sales means no homecoming. Mosquitos are just like taxes, they are everywhere. Sesser is just about like every other small town in the country, small business are dying off, kids are typically mean. What you forgot to mention is that SV was a 2010 blue ribbon school, which means the kids get a better education in our district than anywhere else in all of Southern Illinois.

I have family and friends all over the area. I do have a car, it is possible to visit other towns, drive on the roads. Perhaps instead of doing all this complaining you should do something about it. You don't like the garbage in the park organize a clean up; you don't like the mosquitos write an EPA grant to help offset the cost to the city and it's taxpayers to purchase the equipment and machinery required to take on such a project; you don't like bullying volunteer to be a mentor for kids most likely to be targeted by bullies. The point is this: it's simple to sit back and point out all of the shortcomings, it takes a lot of initiative, perseverance, and guts to take a problem and do your part to fix it.

Have you ever given any thought to what kinds of chemicals are spewed into the air while spraying? Do you know anyone allergic to this? Sesser has many folks who do not want to be sprayed. Why not fog your own yard or buy a can of Off? Better yet you could come to Sesser and lead a drive to straighten out the school system, clean up the park, repair the streets, blah, blah, blah, or you could just stay in Valier where everything is perfect, or you could actually get a life and do something other than bitch! When you come to Sesser bring your own can of spray while all those Valier kids play summer ball for free on the Sesser fields that Sesser taxpayers forked out nearly $500,000 to build. Perhaps if Sesser had that half million they could spray toxins everywhere. Turns out Sesser is providing FREE recreation area for VALIER so before you ramble on about how bad things are in Sesser you should tell the whole story. BTW do you sell chemicals for spraying?

If you have evidence of these "crimes" by neddie you should do your civic duty and go to the proper authorities. Do your part to clean up Sesser otherwise shut the fuck up. If you know for a FACT that neddie is doing these things and you don't stop it you are as guilty as neddie is. Time to put up or shutup!

There is a court case ongoing here as well as news media reports and council minutes that will reveal to you simple minded folks where this money has been, is presently, and where it will go in the future. Do your homework and don't expect someone else to do the work for you. It is all a matter of public record!

Well "check your facts" you do seem to assume a lot considering I only mentioned spraying. Its not my fault you might have a beef with ned. Sesser continues to reelect him time and time again. So the citizens of Sesser must like what he's doing for your town. Also the kids used to come play ball in Valier as well as Sesser, but everyone higher up decided on the sports complex that Sesser has today as a replacement. It was expensive to build but that just shows where Sessers priorities lie.

I thought the ballfields were paid for in part by some grant or something from the St Louis Cardinals? Sesser really paid $500,000 for those ball fields ...wow?? Who made that decision?

About as many time as he ate that ice cream cone right off of your mother's a$$. Don't be an idiot because William stayed on topic. Do us all a favor & go back to kissing your sister.

Sesser is a decent place to live. While in high school I really wanted to get out. It was all I thought about. I went away to college out of state for a while and found out I really missed it here. Yes, sesser does have its problems, but all small towns do. Even big city's have their problems. Theres no denying that. Yes, it could be better around here, but I think there are a lot of people who care about the town and just don't know what they can do to improve it. I'm one of those people, big ideas but not sure what to do with them. I remember my mom telling my stories of growing up here and I wish sesser was still as wonderful as the stories she tells. I wish we could make it that wonderful again. But even still, in my opinion, agree or not, sesser is one of the nicer places to live and raise a family.
