Just wondering if they are going to be serving liquor at the great village anniversary dance at the village hall? Is it really a good idea if they plan to do so? And will the police be keeping an eye out for intoxicated drivers leaving the dance?

Nice to have an ordinance that states the village will pick up fallen branches 72 hours after a storm! But I'm still waiting a week later for them to pick them up!

Thanks and kudos to Lyons Library Staff and Trustees for - once again - a great family fun event yesterday! Thanks also to the citizens who donated time and items for the raffle prizes and to the businesses that donated food and other items. Those who attended appreciate all of your efforts to bring together our community as one, if for only one afternoon.

No Liquor at party. Why would you look out for people leaving the dance. Seniors/ Why not check all of the people leaving the bars after watching a Football Game.

"No-bid school project skirted law


Chicago Sun-Times (IL)- Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Author: BY JON SEIDEL ; AND BECKY SCHLIKERMAN ; Staff Reporters


A controversial roofing project in west suburban Stickney skirted state law in various ways, making it possible for a politically connected company to do the work with few questions asked, the Chicago Sun-Times has found.

No bidding process was needed. And no bond was required.

Thatís because Lyons Elementary District 103 estimated the project would cost $35,000 ó well below the $50,000 threshold in state law that makes such due diligence mandatory.

But when the 2012 project at Edison Elementary School went over budget by at least four times the estimate, most of the business kept going to a pair of companies that are apparently connected: Lembke & Sons True Value and A1 Building Maintenance and Plumbing.

Now a school board attorney has recommended the district hire an independent auditor to look into the roof project. The topic was discussed at a board committee meeting Monday night where school board president Sharon Anderson called the project ďa repair gone psychotic.Ē

A1 doesnít have a business license in Darien where itís based, nor is it incorporated in Illinois. And now the Chicago Sun-Times has found through the Freedom of Information Act the school district has no proof of insurance, bonding or licensure from A1.

Finally, the newspaper found no permits were pulled at Stickney Village Hall for the roofing project. Stickney Treasurer Kurt Kasnicka said fees would have been waived for the school district ó but the permit was a necessity.

In all, records show the school district has spent nearly $125,000 at A1 in recent years and more than $800,000 at the hardware store over the last six."

Wonder how much the village got the library to ante up to have the alley paved? Of course, with Getty people running the board, it doesn't matter...

Don't anyone reveal who you are cause certain people will pry in your family and your life just to get something on you. That is what I was told. Thank you kindly for all your attention, Moe, Larry and Curly but you all confused me for someone who gives a f***!
