Get tired of people running this town down, It's not the town it's people like you complaining instead of helping fix a problem. Most likely the people complaining have never lived anywhere but here. Got news for you, It's all the same if your there! Life will be the same for you wherever you go. Why? Because, LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT! It's the people in a town that make the town!!! If your gonna complain and mope thru life, that's what your gonna get. If I could I'd match your months welfare check just to get you to move out of our town! Don't talk about it, do it, move, please! We don't want you here dragging down the economy anyway!!  (Jun 21, 2016 | post #1)

Benton bars are so OVERRATED

Over-rated? How do you get worse than sucks? As if there is a good bar? 95% of the people that go in to a bar are there to get drunk, then 75% of those people are gonna drive home, 25% of those people are gonna get into a fight/drama, Most of them shouldn't be spending money they can't afford to lose. I see nothing good about bars in Benton or otherwise!  (Jun 21, 2016 | post #5)

not going to prison.....

I guarantee, I won't need you or anyone else, if someone attacked or robbed anyone in my family. I have brains and understand my life, lively-hood, safety, happiness, and sorrow, is that, mine! I took the time to educate my family, not lead them blindly into a world of idiots worrying about other idiots! I understand their are people out there who want what I have and have taken steps to assure if they do take from me, they won't be taking many more steps! This world would be so much better if everyone would worry about their lives and let other people do theirs!  (Dec 20, 2015 | post #9)

not going to prison.....

You people are whats wrong with Benton! Any town is what you make of it!! I have children, they all went to Benton grade thru high school. They all graduated high school and all have attended college and have lucrative jobs in the area, that aren't in the coal or prison industry. You sit here and complain about drugs, they are everywhere! Who cares, if that's what those people want to do, who cares, as long as it doesn't affect you personally!!!! I hope they overdose and die, less to take care of, but I could care less what they spend their money on!! Your right that people who manage to stay out of trouble deserve something extra as a reward, it's called keeping your freedom!!! To recap people like you who judge and slander these people are whats wrong with our community, live and let live, cause you will die soon enough and none of this will matter!!!!!!!!  (Dec 19, 2015 | post #7)

Beware Pot smokers

I guess putting a whole sentence together and spelling correctly, constitute appearing educated, if that's the case I'll take it thank you!! I never said helping the police was wrong, need to improve your reading and comprehending skills! I've never rolled over like a punk, never had to, I'm too smart to get caught!! Won't give you the satisfaction of replying to your petty reply or attempt to draw me into some kind of verbal combat again, but you have a good time getting screwed by the cops and bubba next time you decide to drink while being stupid, wait you can't help that, i meant to say drinking and driving!  (Aug 23, 2015 | post #34)

Beware Pot smokers

I see, you need to get your arse out of trouble, so you help the police and they help you, right? BS, they never help you that's the thing! Not to mention any kind of man would take his punishment and deal with it! Obviously we are dealing with a child, with little to no intelligence or quality parental figures. Becoming a police officer is noble, most everyone respects you, Becoming a nark, no one respects you not even the police!!! Just like anyone else they will tell you what you want to hear until they are done and then you will be too! Have fun being a punk, while it last!  (Aug 23, 2015 | post #32)

thug life

Your looking for the wrong kind of guy. I doubt you will find many single guys worth a damn hanging out at the dives in town. There are some great people in this town, we just aren't running town. Most men I know are out working and trying to make their way in this world, got no time for the bar scene and it's stupid-ness. Work, shopping, friends, family, never bars or churches, some of the worst people hang out in both! Piece of advice, looks are not everything, a man who will take care of you when your old and/or sick, someone who always has your best interest and someone who will love you for you, that's what will make you happy. Good luck!  (Jul 28, 2015 | post #2)

Worthless Prayer

Ben you are either a child a moron or both! I also don't believe in a mystical being that created all. However, i am a human being and as one, I was born with compassion. These people have not came on here and preached to you, so why in their moment of tragedy, would you come on here and choose to push an agenda that has no definite answer, until your dead! There is no god to smite you, but I can tell you this Karma is real and she is a bitch! We are in the animal family but that doesn't mean you can act like an animal, do you have to have god in your life to treat people with simple respect, they lost a child, I truly don't see why this post was necessary. You are a terrible human being, and you have to live with that not me! Hope you have a shitty life with that attitude! Life is finite, you can either spread happiness and joy, or sorrow and pain, but you will reap what you sow!  (Jul 21, 2015 | post #4)

Really, of all things you attack my grammar? I don't care, I'm no english teacher, but I do try to be close, which is more than I can say for most people today, whatever? I didn't see the advertising, but if you lived in the area, then you should know that every year, in all the surrounding towns, the firework shows are free always have been, why would it change now? "The Bluegill Music Festival will also have a free area on the North Grounds with food and beverage, free live music, a Kids Zone with an inflatable slide, and the free fireworks, which will begin at 9:30 p.m." was in the advertisement in Daily American, "A 25-minute fireworks display will cap off the festivities at 9:30 p.m. Fireworks can be viewed from the spillway area or additional areas that will be open for the evening including Dam West picnic area, South Sandusky Beach, Prairie Hill parking lot and North Marcum boat and picnic area. A $5 donation per car will be collected in each area, with proceeds going to future Independence Day festivals." The Southern Illinoisan, "Date: July 4, 2015 at 9:30pm Where: Rend Lake Dam Main Dam Road City/State/Zip: Benton, Illinois 62812 County: Franklin County Get directions! Event Website: Click Here! Admission: Free; $5 parking fee Event Details: Billed as the largest fireworks display in Southern IL! At the Rend Lake Dam. Festivities begin at 4:00 PM Food vendors, inflatables for the kids, and live music. Fireworks begin at 9:30 with the Southern Illinois Concert Band playing along with the fireworks." on the Illinois Firework website. This took me 2 minutes to lookup online! I don't think I need to make my point anymore! I'm done with the moron squad goodbye and have a great day!  (Jul 5, 2015 | post #11)

See the problem with moron's is they don't realize they are morons! If your are a productive member of society then you would be able to comprehend that tourist offset the cost to residents of the towns they visit, let me know if I'm going to fast here, Therefore lowering tax levied against said resident(you). I understand you have a great job and the higher tax rate won't bother you but us poor soda sellers, we don't have the cash flow that your obvious education brings you. By the way, Changing your name doesn't make you count as two people! Have a good day.  (Jul 5, 2015 | post #9)

They change the name and people suddenly can't read or understand common sense? They have always done the same crap, music, food and fireworks. If you need someone to spell out for you that the fireworks are free, like every year, well then your a special kind of retard! If you live here and say I hope it fails miserably, your either a child or a moron! This area needs more things like this, we need the tourist! Like every area to thrive! You don't wanna see tourist go back to the woods and live the hillbilly life!  (Jul 5, 2015 | post #7)

Are you new to the area? It's always been free. I don't know anyone who thought you had to buy a concert ticket to go to see the fireworks. It's $30, not the end of the world. Hope you have a good time and please come back.  (Jul 4, 2015 | post #2)
