Kids with Master's degrees don't put their lives on the line every day they go to work like our deserving police do!  (Apr 21, 2014 | post #8460)

I don't know where on the west end you live but at the time of my post nothing on my west end street had been touched by a VOL truck. Since my original post they came by once but with all the cars still on the street it doesn't matter. whatever happened to moving cars when there are 2 or more inches of snow?  (Jan 1, 2014 | post #8299)

I want to congratulate our public works department for the fine job they have done in clearing the streets so that they are safe to drive on! NOT!  (Jan 1, 2014 | post #8292)

Not a bad idea. What we need to do is slam the door in the face of whoever is trying to get the petition to extend term limits signed and then we need to pack all future board meetings. Tomorrow and Wednesdays board meeting is canceled because it is the village Christmas party. Which means that only his buddies will be attending since he only hires people he knows and can control.  (Dec 16, 2013 | post #8250)

I love how they are always on the East side I often wonder if Getty even knows there is a west side. Maybe he realizes that there aren't enough of us willing to accept bribes on the west end.  (Dec 8, 2013 | post #8184)

I can't help but notice how the defenders of the all "great and powerful Oz" seem to be so quiet of late. Maybe they are finally coming out of their trance and beginning to realize that it really isn't the Wizard who is running things but it is the "Wicked Witch" and we know what happened to the witch........ "I'm melting!!!!". We could only hope!  (Nov 27, 2013 | post #8145)

Since the building was once the Chamber of Commerce's office, and Getty was once head it stands to reason that his agency probably issued the policy on this building........ Just thinking here, not always a good thing, Jr. now our President/Mayor and current President of Getty Insurance (since dad do to his past problems is not suppose to sell insurance) makes me wonder if any of the Villages Insurance policies have been reissued by Getty Ins. For instance the village board health insurance. Like I said just thinking.  (Nov 22, 2013 | post #8110)

I believe that the building was under foreclosure. I think the insurance company needs to take a close look at that before issuing a check. It is a shame to loose as my kids would say "the castle."  (Nov 22, 2013 | post #8101)

Loved the huge turnout of residents at the town hall to hear the CMAP Presentation. Mostly Village Employee's, Getty and his adoring family, some out of townrs, and so many concerned citizens that they could be counted with two hands. Didn't need the toes to count. Was this because of a lack of communication and no one knew or maybe most are just all talk and no action.  (Nov 21, 2013 | post #8097)

Doesn't do any good to run against Getty unless you too can pay people to vote for you just like he did in the last election.  (Oct 4, 2013 | post #7949)

Real easy to check who contributed all you have to do is check with David Orr's site. That's were I discovered that Reliable contributed to both the UCP and Citizens for Getty which he then gave to himself as rent. Real easy to use as influence in ignoring infractions or suggesting to people that it would be helpful to use certain businesses.  (Aug 28, 2013 | post #7860)
