I remember when I was growing up and all we had was a night watchman, and virtually no drug proble. We still got messed up on "cheap wine". They hire cops and crime goes up. How many does this make that have been arrested and gone to jail in the last 30 years or so? In a town Earlville's size , if it only these two it still is way too many.

Definitely not just these 2 Rich. One “left” here to go to Seneca and got into trouble (“allegedly” something to do with an underage girl), and another went from here to the county sheriff office and was fired for “allegedly” breaking into a chicken delivery truck (while on duty) that was stuck in a snow bank. We also had a chief that “allegedly” had rubber checks hanging in almost every business in town a few years back. I had to have the local automotive parts delivery men put the word out to all the mechanics in the area about him after seeing his car sitting at a shop in Somonauk. I stopped at the shop in Somonauk and asked the mechanic (a friend) if he knew who’s car he was working on? His response was “NO, WHY?”. I told him not to take anything but cash for the bill. I suggested he call another friend at a shop in Earlville that I knew had a rubber check on the board and ask him about the guy. The car ended up sitting at the shop in Somonauk for about six months. We also had one that was living in the old Nemer Kaleel house “allegedly” shoot out the picture window (from the inside) because he seen a shadowy figure in the front yard. This may have been the same one that was “allegedly” working security at Lake Holiday?“Allegedly” a lot of people were coming home from vacation to ransacked houses for a while…

Earlville didn’t do anything to Owen Finnegan, Owen Finnegan was his own worst enemy.

Too many stories, not enough time!
