Sesser makes homemade video to attract Oprah

Full story: Southern Illinoisan

While MTV shouldn't be concerned about competition just yet, STV -that's "Sesser Television" - did get off the ground briefly Friday afternoon when a homemade video was shot in front of the Opera House ...

No we HAD that. Around 1968-1970. Imagine what it was like in 40's and 50's when you walked to the depot and could catch a train and go to the big town of Benton. You could even ride all the way to Chicago or St. Louis!

Sesser is a great place ? How about driving through there, do you ever see any children playing in the park ? Not very many like there used to be..have you driven through there after dark ? It's like a ghost town.so much that Huck's even closed....Bruno's is gone .... all they have is a Subway , the Opera House and a pizza joint. Used to be children cruising... hanging out being kids.... now they have a 7 o clock curfew when school is in session which is ridiculous...a pedophile for a mayor and a under certified person for a police chief who manipulates his position above it's means, abuses his authority, violates civil rights and ya ll think this is a great town?

Sesser is a nice place to raise a family. You trade in options and things to do for closeness and security. it's not for everyone.
Security ? what kind of security ? only two officers are certified. If the people of Sesser would actually wake up and see what is going on out there they might actually be suprised. And "security" is actually an oxymoron in reference to Sesser due to the mayor being a pedohile himself. Just one who bought his way out of his "issue".

actually sesser is a nice little town
what i don't understand is everyone seems to think
the police chief is a problem yet he is still police chief. i try to avoid sesser as much as possible because last time the chief followed me around so instead of spending my money there i drove to benton. can you imagine how much money sesser loses because of the chief.

I've never lived in Sesser, don't have family in Sesser, and never really considered living in Sesser. I do live in Franklin County. Every little town has its problems, but I like Sesser and everytime I drive through there, I am reminded of a friend that passed many years ago, Ky the "Clothing Store Guy". He made Sesser interesting to me.
