Yesterday i took my kids to the 4th of July parade. We were there by 8:45 a.m. 1 hour and 15 minutes before the start of the parade. I had 4 kids with me. and every where we found a small spot to stand the people there were so rude and snapped at me and the kids" this spot is saved" O.K. people are we in grade school? I didn't think so but the only very small spot we did find was next to an old lady that was drinking beer (AT 9 A.M.) and also snapped at us that the spot next to her "was saved".....it also had a big ass mud puddle in front of it! So as we sat there waiting for the parade, my kids were about in tears...they said this stinks all the candy they throw us is gonna be in the puddle and we wont be able to eat it! Why are people so rude????? so the kids decided they didn't even want to stay and watch the parade!!!!!!!!!! So we went home! THANKS STEELEVILLE PEOPLE FOR YOUR WARM WELCOME INTO YOUR COMMUNITY WHERE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE COME EVERY YEAR AND DUMP MONEY INTO YOUR COMMUNITY! notice the sarcasm? You sure made my kids realize the depth of stupidity, and rudeness, and being clickish, and snotty! As adults what are you thinking!Is this what you teach your children in your community? SHAME ON YOU STEELEVILLE!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah the last time i went there it was the same situation as yours. Its ridiculous! I snapped right back at them though. Its a public event any EVERYONE has a right to attend. If someone wants to "save" a spot then mark it or something but i guess they would rather be sassy with complete strangers. I didnt even go this year because of that crap from years past. I hope you and your little ones had a good 4th of July despite the joke parade :)

We have been taking our kids there every year now for the past four years n never have a problem at the parade. Where were u sitting? We sit on the hill near the dollar store and have a great time every year. I guess we've just been lucky hope I didn't just jinx ourselves. Our kids are 2 and 5.

We went there and had a similar confrontation. We had to park about 3-4 blocks north of the main route on a back street. When I had my kids get out of the van I noticed the sidewalk had just been poured and I instructed my children to walk down the curb like a tightrope next to the van so not to step on the area between the curb and side walk because it had just been sown with grass.
When we returned after the parade the over weight, hairy, shirtless, obscene, foul mouthed, home owner was standing in his front yard watching us. I had the children enter the van in the same fashion as I had them exit it. Of coarse fat-hairy-N-foul had to pipe up and tell me " your kids better not step on my grass". I told him "its between the curb and the sidewalk so shut the fuck up". He said I better not park there next year cause I might get a flat tire. I told him not to worry about it that he might be dead before then after all I did know where he lived.

Its a shame that it has turned to that. Years ago my mom would take the 6 of us and we never had a problem. But, over the years now that i have taken my grandbabies, it is exactly as you say. Clickish, snobby people. We don't even bother going over there for the parade, picnic or fireworks. Way to many snobs who all think they are better than you!

send your comments to the County Journal. Thats the only way things can get resolved.

Yes please call the County Journal. Speak with Greg Myers. He'll put them in their place.

You should also call Carrie Myers too because they own the Steeleville paper and the Randolph County Herald Tribune.

Those are the only sources for news that I use weekly.

I agree so much with most of your comments and my family and I have also felt unwanted in that town. Sadly it wasn't even the upper crust treating us this way. It was fairly ordinary blue collar folks. Luckily they dont offer much in that town for shopping or dining so we try to always go elsewhere. Popeye picnic isn't the cleanest most family friendly picnic but I will say the folks welcomed us as out of towners and that goes a long way

I agree that the parade isn't as enjoyable as it used to be, We used to go every year, but have quit going because of the conditions you described.

I'm not sure that all of the nasty people are necessarily Steeleville citizens, though. It could be outsiders from other towns acting that way.
