Water department

When I lived in West Frankfort the ladies at the water department were beyond hateful. Not once was I ever treated with any civility whatsoever. I am glad that they are getting new help for the sake of the residents that still have to deal with the water department. I am glad that I don't anymore.  (Dec 27, 2011 | post #18)

Carterville schools should be ashamed.

You didn't throw out complete facts. When others gave YOU facts, you either didn't respond to them or you posted the same facts again. As I said before, you obviously aren't capable of admitting you are wrong, so there is no point in debating.  (Dec 18, 2011 | post #311)

Outraged...did you eat paint chips as a kid or were you educated up north? Either way, you clearly are not capable of seeing any other point besides yours. Your point CAN be argued because the data DOES NOT support your claims. You are like a little kid that covers his eyes and believes other people can't see him when he does it.  (Dec 12, 2011 | post #304)

Carterville schools should be ashamed.

The only real difference between northern schools and southern schools is that; in northern illinois schools you are only safe if there are metal detectors and security guards, in the southern illinois schools you are only safe if you have the right last name and the right connections. The true facts support that too much money is given to and wasted by ALL school districts in this state.  (Dec 12, 2011 | post #298)

2011 Christmas Parade Fatality

It was Terry Horn. There is a very brief article: http://www.wsiltv. com/news/local/Her rin-Man-Killed-Dur ing-Lights-Parade- 135375938.html  (Dec 10, 2011 | post #2)

Kindling closing??

When they first opened we went there quite often. I hope they stay open. The owners/staff are always very friendly and helpful. They have a very nice variety/selection of beer, etc. It is nice to see a local store doing well. I would recommend that they go back to having more competitive pricing. Also, I am curious to know if they ever changed chefs? We ate there a few times but the food was completely disappointing. The service was slow as well.  (Dec 10, 2011 | post #3)

Cain's Candidacy - Carterville, IL

Spermin, posting links to the chicago tribune and msnbc doesn't really prove anything. If you do not get your news from a variety of sources, you aren't getting the whole story. I believe Romney is behind the allegations against Cain. As soon as Gingrich passed Romney in the polls, Romney began attacking him. Romney is a media whore just like Obama always has been. The only difference I see between the two is that Obama had a better publicist. I don't support Romney, Gingrich or any other Republican candidate at this point. I support Cain, not because he is a Republican but because he has never been a politician. Because this country doesn't need a career politician. It needs someone who has some sort of economic sense on their own. If all you have ever done is politic, you don't know much about how the real world works. If you have never had to make a decision without an adviser or a focus group to help you, then you can't make a decision. If you have never made a decision with the knowledge that it could get you fired immediately, then you can't make a decision. Politicians can't make decisions. And until there is more than accusation, I will choose to believe Cain is innocent. Because a woman who has to READ what happened to her when she was "harassed " doesn't convince me. As a woman who has been put in a bad situation, I can tell you...you don't forget, you don't need notes to remind you what happened. If more people put thought into their voting practices perhaps this country would not be in the shape it is in. Voting party lines or voting for the prince of the media doesn't usually get you a good leader. No matter what side of the aisle a person is on, I don't think anyone could honestly say they are really happy with our leaders right now. Voting is the opportunity to tell leaders, do it right or get out.  (Dec 7, 2011 | post #11)

the groove shop

Lost:"its ok to go out and get drunk get behind the wheel of your car because the government says it is ok" Ummm actually no. That is called drunk driving and that is illegal. DUI stands for "driving under the influence" which includes drugs OR alcohol. New girl, you are an irresponsible moron just like anyone who drinks and drives. Legalization does NOT stop addiction or crime connected with drug use. Nor does it mean that people won't step up to even more serious drug use, i.e.meth, heroin, etc. And anyone who says marijuana doesn't have long term effects is either high or isn't aware enough to see those symptoms in long term users. I do know several long term users and their personalities do change when they are not able to "smoke" on schedule. And when they can't they most certainly can become angry, moody and even aggressive. Marijuana definitely has medical uses. And a person shouldn't be denied access to it for those reasons. But neither legalization nor vilifying pot smokers is the solution to what is most certainly a wide spread problem. And even if you disagree with the law, it is the law. People who sell pot, or carry enough that it could be divided and sold, are breaking the law and should be held accountable.  (Dec 4, 2011 | post #32)

Cain's Candidacy - Carterville, IL

Unless the allegations are proven to be true, then he is innocent. An affair doesn't make you evil, lots of very popular presidents have had multiple affairs. As far as the other allegations, I have seen no proof they are true. At this point I still believe he could lead the country out of the crisis it is in now.  (Nov 30, 2011 | post #1)

Apparently you DO care "the dawg", because you replied to his post. And as far as posting worthless crap....I think you and Ghost take that prize easily.  (Nov 28, 2011 | post #24)

Two Men To Be Honored For Rescuing Officer

How do you know he DOESN'T donate money to charities? Or would it only count if he handed YOU a check personally? I am perplexed by your hatred. You must be a sad little man to carry around that kind of hate.  (Nov 20, 2011 | post #18)

The Star

Does it matter what it is about? Why does it bother you so much? I will admit I like the second version better than the first one that was up. But I don't understand why someone would be so bothered that they started a topic about it and then insult someone they don't even know. It's not like it is a big metal naked person or something. Ghost, JonJoBillJeff....a re you jealous that you aren't as creative as Pete?  (Nov 19, 2011 | post #15)

Southern Illinois

I am curious where you found your numbers. The accounting I saw shows the north receiving a lot more than the south. Perhaps I was looking in the wrong place?  (Nov 9, 2011 | post #19)
