Bystanders say shorter parade a sparkler

You're never going to really listen to me, no matter what I do or say. You have already passed judgment on me. You didn't even really see any of the good in my post, like saying thank you to the volunteers for putting on a great show for the community. Candy is for the kids. The parade is for the kids. The observation: How much better does a candidate look to a prospective voter, if the candidate were to walk up to a voter, hand them some candy and shake their hand? I think it would work better than tossing candy on the ground, having children run out into the parade, to grab some candy. I think that is a great idea for "The village should start the parade with a banner politely reminding viewers not to litter..." Everyone needs a good reminder, we should all pitch in to keep the town looking good. It is unfortunate when people cannot clean up after themselves. Kudos to the village of Antioch street maintenance for always doing such a great job!  (Jul 9, 2010 | post #23)

Kelly's Cupcakes

I did return the bad product to the business, Kelly's Cupcakes and explained to the store clerk as to the reasons why. It's absolutely right to talk about our bad experiences with others. What is wrong with voicing one's opinion? I didn't just have one bad experience either. I have had at least three. We're human, we will discuss anything. If we weren't able to voice our opinions here, we would go elsewhere. It's how the world works. Businesses whether large or small send people out into the world to boost a product that may not be necessarily good for the community. Microsoft for example, seeing the negative feedback in regards to Vista, changed a couple of things and put out Windows 7 which is basically Vista, just improved. Meanwhile, Vista Service Pack 2 runs just fine, but nobody trusts that version anymore. I think there has been some very good feedback both negative and positive for Kelly's Cupcakes to see and make improvements to their products.  (Jul 9, 2010 | post #53)

Antioch trustee says voters can veto lake water

Why would anyone not want to vote for Lake Michigan water? We should get it while we can and have the wells as backup. It's a better plan for the future.  (Jul 9, 2010 | post #2)

Bystanders say shorter parade a sparkler

Unfortunately, it was too hot for me to keep standing and watching one politician after another go by. And then there was the politician's group that was throwing candy at us patrons of the parade. Candy, laying on the ground. Who was going to clean up that mess? I was able to get some good pictures. Overall, I liked most of the parade that I watched. I thought the corvette and mustang were good choices, but I won't say for who - I don't want to advertise for them. lol. I liked the one commenter up above who suggested the parade go thru Antioch downtown, that would definitely be some good pictures! :) Thanks to everyone that volunteered and put on a great show for the community!  (Jul 6, 2010 | post #13)
