OMG, sounds exactly like what is going on in Springfield and Washington, no budgets, continued spending, hanging the taxpayer by the short hairs and not giving one darn that they are strangling from inflation, job loss, housing loss. All these politicians should only try to live within their budgets......oh, that's right, none of them have budgets yet! Well, let's see, they've all (city, state,& federal) been in office for four years, how the heck long does it take to produce a balanced budget? In my house, if I don't have it, I can't spend it. Maybe they should do the same thing.

that's what they said about Sandusky and Paterno.

They were the best. They were loved by all.
Yeah right. Just happy the people that suffered
lived long enough to see justice.

Something the people of this town have been denied way too long.

Balanced and Unafraid.

This is from the Center for Sex Offender Management:
Why Do People Commit Sex Crimes?
No single factor or combination of factors can fully explain why someone offends sexually, though
some factors may combine to increase people’s
tendency
to offend.
These factors are:
• physiological/biological (e.g., imbalanced hormones, being sexually attracted to children);
• sociocultural (e.g., being exposed to broader social messages supportive of aggression);
• developmental/environmental (e.g., having witnessed domestic violence); and
• situational/circumstantial (e.g., having easy access to victims, extreme levels of stress)
So the notion that it is the fault of the parents is simply false. Parental influence may be a part, but it is not the cause. Uninformed, lazy idiots make such statements.
WTH: You do realize you are defending every child molester and sexual predator in those statements you made above, correct? Your giving excuses that it is okay to commit crimes like that. Well, it's not! If something was to happen to your daughter or son, I'm sure you would be singing a different tune! Or maybe you would be able to forgive them for hurting your child's life?

the dirtiest ugliest attack was on the children.
Here's a great suggestion for you - know what you are talking about before running you mouth. You obviously know NOTHING about this subject. For your information not all victims "become mentally ill". I'm sure your great insight into the minds of people you don't know will be a great revelation to the world of mental health. The dirtiest, ugliest attack is using the victims as political fodder. For all we know, YOU could be a child molester, as could anyone posting on this Blog. Are you aware that on 1 - 5% of assaults are ever reported? I wish you would take time to learn what you are talking about, and stop trying to use issues that have nothing to do with running our village for your own political ends.

Isn't it great that Chris is endorsed by Tom Dart - hey you people who are so worried about child abusers, here's the guy supporting your candidate:

Dart will not hold illegal immigrants - even those with a history of 12 convictions for a dozen sexual assaults.

In 2009 I actually voted for TLC and had the signs up in my store front. I knew the Getty family for a long time but, I wasn't sure how most people would vote and I felt Chris may have been to young and honestly didn't think he had a chance. After the election I was surprised and I guess I felt a bit of hope that if a kid can get elected maybe there will be the change Lyons Residents have been seeking. After, the election he did stop on in my store and asked what it was that he didn't have my vote, and I told him I simply didn't think he was old enough to handle the responsibilities that came along with mayor. He shook his head in agreement and and told me he respected that and that he will do what he can to earn my vote in 2013. Now that the elections are here. The kid has earned my vote. I had a problem with residents parking in front of my business and told him that it made things inconvenient for my customers. Well, 2 days later he had a 1 hour parking limit sign that was valid during business hours (8-5). I am so greatful he was able to help out and my business has now doubled because my customers can easily park. My entire family will be voting UCP all the way this year! The neighbors and friends I have talked to in town fully support him too! The kid is doing awesome job, and I'm looking forward to seeing the accomplishments to come in the future!

and yes, I agree the forum should move on from the Pedofile talks and get back to the things that matter. Like how you have been helped out or the good things you liked about the last 4 years? Or maybe what you didn't like? Let's get back to the basics so people can have a clear image on who we are voting for.(I had no intentions voting VIP in the first place, and the pedo topics completely made me feel at peace with my decision to vote UCP)

State of the Village of Lyons Meeting!!! A meeting that was accompanied by the ROLLING SUPPORT "GREEN JEANS CHRIS" BILLBOARD, up and down Lawndale Avenue!!! This was NOT A STATE OF the VILLAGE SPEECH, this was PLAIN AND SIMPLEY, A UCP, GET OUT THE VOTE STAGED EVENT (AT TAXPAYER EXPENSE!!), Sponsored by our very own, "Farmer Ken" and Green Jeans Chris"!!! This was designed to make US ALL FEEL GOOD!!! A Staged Event, a Fluff Piece, to PACIFY THS MASSES AND KEEP THE FOCUS OFF OF THE REAL iSSUES, AND THE BEHIND THE SCENES DEAL MAKING, THAT HAS BEEN AT A FEVER PITCH, during the last six months!!!

Nephew, Cousin, what ever he is related to Mark Anderson. However, I didn't feel like writing the story up last night, but Tom Anderson was found guilty and convicted. However, I did hear the story and supposedly the girl was like 15 or 16 and he was 18 at the time. I guess they were in a relationship and when Tom broke up with her she told her parents that they had sex and the parents pressed charges on him. He hasn't committed another crime since. His family has been in the Village for a long time, and I do not believe that Tom poses any threat to society. His violation was over a decade ago. Mark Anderson on the other hand has been good to the Village. Now this Graunke guy, that kid has a serious problem and is a repeat offender. He has a mental issue or disease, call it what you want.. but, it is likely he would hurt another kid given the chance.
You have the wrong person. It was a child.

No, I didn't mention a cross dresser, a gay person, or any other person but a child rapist. I would suggest you keep your kids away from the rapists. I find it alarming that you have a problem with these other people. They haven't harmed anyone, just the rapists harmed people. Both Anderson and Graunkee raped children. Anderson, victim under 9 years old, Graunkee, victim under 4 years old. Those are the people I have a problem with. They developed this illness from somewhere. Either poor family life, or their parents choose to ignore an obvious problem and get them help. Now since the parents choose to ignore this inncoent children were harmed. She Back I am suprised you have these opinions against gay people, you claim to be so understanding...odd
Look around and see who has a VIP sign on the Lawn. I really wonder about that

The land was donated for free to the Village of Lyons. The Police Department was contracted out to a buddy of Visk. The Condo's on Ogden were also put up by Visk with the same contractor. They also were about to rip up Smith Park to build more Condo's, but as soon as Chris got in office he saved Smith Park and killed the deal. The contractor no longer had funds to complete the project because Visk could no longer fund him through village money.
Not Too Long Ago: Let's see if I understand you correctly. When "Green Jean Chris" was first elected, he was STRIPPED OF HIS POWERS and COULD NOT ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING FOR THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF HIS TERM, did I hear this correctly??? Now you want to tell us that as SOON AS "GREEN JEANS CHRIS" GOT IN OFFICE, HE SAVED SMITH PARK AND KILLED THE DEAL??? Then, as always, we have to bring in the Prior Administration, throw some Blame Their Way, and then cap off the rant by claiming the Contractor no longer had funds because the Prior Administration could no longer fund them with Village Funds??? You certainly have me baffled!!!
Calling all Village Independent Candidates and Pattie Wisneski, can you guys include this Mystery on your to do list for APRIL 10th????

You really have no clue about anything. 4 votes over rules 3 votes. By the way if you think all VIP will be elected you have to be crazy. I saw a letter that came out by VIP . Water was raised from Chicago, that was one lie that said Getty raised water. Read it and I wonder if Close wrote it.
