WF water/sewer rate hikes

I think we should have the option of not having trash service $10 a month, all of last year and so far this year, I have set out a total of 10 bags of trash. We eat out most meals and mostly eat at work. I have a trash compactor and can actually get over a whole month of trash in one bag.  (Feb 19, 2013 | post #8)

West Frankfort Discusses Water and Sewer Rate Hikes, OKs ...

We don't need a rate hike! My water bill is around $50 a month and I work all the time.....some months I'm not even home and still my bill is in the high $40 range...I have no leaks. My house is new. So The water Dept is padding the bill somehow. They need to move some employees around and put them in places where they are needed, not just keep them in place where they have been for years. And they don't need to raise any taxes or other crap for a new High School either. My taxes are too high already...everyone in town needs to get a Target Debit card...you make a purchase get 5% off the top and the money comes out of your checking account. Then at the end of the year Target will give the school of your choice 1% of all your purchases. I am tired of paying taxes higher then what I paid for a house in St. Louis for a house that is only half the value. Has Franklin County and West Frankfort ever heard of living within your means!!!!!  (Feb 19, 2013 | post #7)

Toms Mad Pricer

I shop there every now and then, It's not a bad store. I usually go there if I need to grab just a few items....I usually go to Kroger, but I like Mad Pricer. I used to always shop at their store in Brighton.  (Feb 11, 2013 | post #21)

same sex marriage yes or no !

Who cares??? Let them get married! As long as they aren't bothering anyone, it's no one's business except theirs. I figure, let them get married like me and all the other married folk around here. They want to be equal, let them go through the same damn married hell we are going through!!! Plus, the divorces will help stimulate the economy!!!!  (Feb 2, 2013 | post #16)

W. F.Elks

I'm a member of the Elks New Comer and we'd love to see you there! They do do a lot of fund raising, and have Fish every Friday...they also have breakfast the 3rd Saturday of every month. As far as it being full of drunks, every time I am there, it doesn't really seem like there is anyone there. They are very inconsistent with their hours, but the people are very friendly. I would really like to join the Moose, but I don't know anyone there and actually the last time I was there was when they were across from the railroad track.  (Oct 23, 2012 | post #13)

Cleveland St Apartments

That's why they take security deposits! Not all renters are bad! Until, I bought my house a few years ago, I rented...and when I left, the rental house usually looked better then when I moved into it.  (Oct 3, 2012 | post #14)

Cleveland St Apartments

I lived in 2 different apartments there years ago....mid 80's. At that time, they were owned by Dr. Ron Halstead and were actually very nice and well-kept apartments. My first apartment was a 2 bedroom there and then I moved to a 1 bedroom on the corner upstairs. My apartment entrance was on that balcony walkway. I loved living there! At that time, all the tenants were really nice. We all knew each other. The grounds were always well kept! I wish I were managing those apartments...they are looking kind of bad!  (Sep 23, 2012 | post #4)

Why is west frankfort so crappy

Well, I was born in Chicago, but I grew up in Benton and West Frankfort. I graduated from WF in 82 and I couldn't wait to move away from here...the funny thing is once I was gone, I couldn't wait to get back!!!! WF is my home and I for one am proud to call it home! I'm not saying we don't have our share of problems in this town, but every single town in the world has their own problems! I own my home outright, own both my cars outright and I get along with my neighbors! I do wish we could get our town back to what is was in the late mid to late 70's...  (Sep 15, 2012 | post #74)

Webster Junior High teacher Jim Owens

I was chatting with some friends that I went to school with and we were talking about favorite teachers from years past and we all agreed that we loved Mr. Jim Owens...What ever happened to him. Is he still around? Still alive?  (Sep 8, 2012 | post #1)
