R.I.P. Gary Sandberg

Unfortunately for the citizens of Peoria, Gary Sandberg is dead.

Love him or hate him, I always felt he tried to do what was best for the citizens of this city.  If there was a no vote around the horseshoe, you always knew who it was.

Things are going to be a lot easier for the council now.  And that's not a good thing.

God Bless the speakers at the council meeting

Nice to hear the real citizens of Peoria splash some water on the face of the "All American City".

Remember this story?........

of Donna Nicholson, the PPD officer who successfully sued the COP over harassment from another officer?

Well, apparently things don't seem to be going well.  Here's Nicholson's request to extend an order of protection against the officer:

I"m sure Chief Wiggum has a reasonable explanation.

What great news

thank god.....more corporate farming welfare.  If there's one thing Monsanto needed, it was some incentives.  Never mind the ones they get from the current White House.  I keep wondering when people are going to wake up regarding this company.  Probably never.

So how's the new museum doing?

asked Randall over at the Anti-Pundit.

Last week, we received a "Please come back" phone message.  Yesterday in the mail, we received a 30% off or a 14 month for the price of 12 membership deal.  Sounds like things are going great down there.

I'll probably just wait to re-up when our family (and the 2000 other young professionals) moves downtown to live.  I will say one thing.....this city is very consistent on offering shiny new things.   Which unfortunately, don't seem to be doing much good.

Could someone answer me this?

The Joesph Company owns a bunch of rental property behind Lowe's.  There are some signs up saying that there's going to be a public meeting about the request to rezone some of the properties for the building of, I believe, an apartment building.

The weird thing is that they've already demolished some houses that are on the proposed rezoning site.  Why would they destroy rental property if they weren't already sure they'll get the rezoning?
