  1. can the thieves in Illinois believe they are not escalating their own demise? I sorely miss the good old days of public hanging entertainment.

  2. OMG! Where in the hell were the township trustees? They have the power and responsibility to review and approve all bills and the RC’s budget! I hope they have been replaced as well. In our Township we present all checks and bills to the trustees and they go thru every check and bill. All receipts are attached to all cedit cards. No receipts no check/bill payment. No bill payment could cause the RC’s LOC to be shut off. I notice very few if any constituents ever respond to your stories. So maybe they need to see a graph of the tax levy increases over the last ten years so they have a sense of just how much this bad behavior is costing them
