Just though I would throw this out there. I think he is an arrogant old prick! Went in to have lunch at a local business the other day and couldnt even enjoy my mean because loud mouth thinks hes always right Wendell was arguing across the room with another person! The person he was arguing kept telling him they werent interested in what he had to say so he had to make sure everyone in the place was just as upset as he was! I am sick and tired of him acting like he owns this town! His attitude has GOT to change!

I have also had the "luxury" of trying to enjoy my meal with my family while Wendell yells and argues with someone across the room also! I was at Fellers Cafe a while back when he was ranting about the library books! My family and our children could NOT enjoy ourselves! He kept demanding input from others in the diner and everyone was becoming very annoyed! The lady he was yelling at kept telling him the same thing over and over and over! He should have been kicked out like anyone else in Willow would be if they caused scenes like that all the time! Someone needs to have a talk with him! He is RUDE!!!!

Wendell is allowed to behave like a child because he and Jane eat most of their meals out and the business owners can depend on their dollars every day. It is unfortunate that everyone isn't amused by them and it ruins their time out with their families. I'm certain that noone cares more about this town than the two of them, but they can be so overbearing that alot of people go the other direction when they see them coming.

I still see it as no excuse to be completely rude! I have seen him on several occasions causing scenes like this. I dont care if he loves Willow or not. I happen to love it as well but you sure dont see me yelling and demanding attention all of the time! He should be NO exception. Oh and I happen to be in the group of people that eat out 3 times a day. I dont cook, but I would be willing to put money down that if I acted like him ONE time I would be thrown out of a place! He comes off as such an arrogant asshole! I dont care if he does stuff for the town or not. I dont want to associate with someone who thinks that highly of their selves. This is not baileyville or wendell springs!

Yes I agree he can be a lil overwhelming at times but one thing about him is-he can take it as well as he dishes it out. Everyone knows what he does for this town and how much he supports it, what they don't know is how much he REALLY has done for this town, he won't take credit and many have no idea, he would never mention it or admit to it. Most people over look most with him or dish it back and he takes it well, he and Jane are honestly both pretty down to earth once you really talk to them one on one, they truly do not believe they are any different or better then anyone else once you talk to them and get to know them. But just like anyone else in anyone's life you can't love everything about everyone. Wendall thinks constantly so the gears are always moving, we all like to share thoughts, ideas and opionions that is basically all he is doing, just sometimes he has a different way about doing it that some find annoying at times, generally he does have some good points that make your gears move into thinking on a different level than we normally think. He is truly a good man you just gotta dig into him and get to know him.

I can honestly "disagree". Both are very careing people who care about others and Willow Springs. They are a great family and credit to our town. When did you work to better Willow Springs? When did you give your time on projects for Willow? How many meetings have you showed up for??? If you want to do better than they have ... then step right up. Let people make fun of you but keep working just the same. I like Oz Fest and the name doesn't matter to me.. I am glad the kids are excited and want to go. I am looking forward to a fun day.

Maybe you should just move out of our town or step up and participate in one simple town event. maybe then you wouldn't feel so left out in our "moreonville". either step up and get involved or move somewhere that doesn't have any town "supporters". Most of us support him because he supports this town and the people with in it to make a nice, fun and peaceful hometown that is something to be proud of. Maybe a home in the middle of nowhere is a better place for you, don't think you would have any town events that you would feel left out and jealous of someone supporting it.

Not liking someone is your right. I'm not going to try and change your mind but please be careful not to judge someone because in your eyes they are different. If anyone loves this town it's Wendell. I for one really appreciate all the hardwork he and his family have done. I've heard someone say, "They have to be in the middle of everything."
I say it's a good thing they are because I don't see anyone else standing in line to do it. It's easy to judge someone else but I think we all should put our energy into making ourselves better people. Me included.

I remember sitting in Mrs. Foster's English class back in the early 90's and Wendell wandered into the classroom in the middle of a discussion. Mrs. Foster was obviously not expecting him but she very politely asked if she could help him. He looked as if he had no clue who he was or where he was. He turned to all of us and began to address us on the merits of democracy, voting and having our voice heard. He didn't even finish his points and slowly walked out the door while still rambling on. Mrs. Foster, to her credit, never let on what she thought of the interruption. The rest of us however couldn't help but to bust out laughing. He is completely insane.

I have always heard that Willow stood behind him in all the elections. It was to get him out of town and into someone else's.

Bubble Bubble toil and trouble....
want to add some spice to the broth that's boiling?
Remember the Saint Louis airport several years ago when Wendell was cought with a pistol in his case...with the I.D. number sanded off? Talk about nuts.
