Too bad TOBS didn't have good parents to teach him right from wrong. Hating is wrong. There are goodRead More and bad in every group. I think I'm a little late. You've got to be taught to hate, before you're six, or seven, or eight...so the song goes.

Amanda, you said, on one of your earlier posts, Amanda Horn March 25, 2014 at 10:03 PM "HowRead More miserable it would be to insist that everyone have the same lifestyle, views, politics, etc. as me." Too bad that if you are white, not gay, not liberal, or don't conform your beliefs to which ever way the winds are blowing, you seem to insist that those people are, in some way, wrong and full of hate. By the way, I have wonderful parents, who did teach me right from wrong. I just don't change the way I feel to try to fit in with the liberal way of thinking. Another thing that they taught me was "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me."

Looks like I will not see you at Pollyanna.

Are businesses here to be supported? I thought that families and charities were supported....aren'tRead More businesses supposed to lure a customer with a product or service that is relevant, timely and provides good value? The businesses in Lemont that do that have no problem earning my hard earned money! And that's the same reason legions of sports fans flush with cash will go to Pollyanna. Like the 'plex it will be relevant, timely and of good value! If either relies on charity support they will be doomed. Respectfully, Bartholomew Sylvester Buster III
Alan April 13, 2014 at 09:33 am
You are trying to be clever and using semantics to define support. Nice try , does not work.

Goodwill is a joke . They take donated items and sell them for profit. None of the money goes to anyRead More charity or needy group. The CEO pays himself $600k a year while paying his employees (who are usually physically or mentally handicapped) less than minimum wage people would be better off donating items to shelters or Salvation Army

Anyone but Phillips Chevrolet. I got screwed at Phillips. I picked-out a truck, put down a $200 cashRead More deposit and came back the next day to find they sold my truck to someone else. Cheeseballs.
Interested resident April 2, 2014 at 09:01 am
That is a shame Lenny Kravitz. I'm sorry to hear that. The patch says Fallon will buy the truckRead More for the rep (in quotes). My understanding is that he is going to buy a truck from the rep. He said last Friday night that he didn't want to make it that easy for the sale.

There is one on every corner anyway! Shouldn't hurt them to close a few.
JusticeLeague March 26, 2014 at 02:57 pm
Barb - I was just going to write the same thing! They spent how much money remodeling and buildingRead More new stores in the past year, now they have to close. What a waste! CVS will take over the stores they close, I'm sure.

If someone was allergic to nuts they would not be able to be on this board lol!

wow I can't believe that only one piece of candy had a peanut out of the 24 candies in the box!
James P. McMahon March 19, 2014 at 08:03 pm
Great idea. Let's ban tobacco and legalize marijuana. Makes sense to me!
Garrett Fifer March 23, 2014 at 05:27 pm
To all the people making the, "But they also sell alcohol!" argument. You must not beRead More aware that alcohol kills only a small fraction of people when compared to tobacco. According to the CDC, excessive alcohol consumption (key-word being excessive) leads to 88,000 deaths annually; while tobacco is responsible for 480,000 (almost a half-million) deaths annually. Furthermore, alcohol can be safely consumed in moderation without a large risk of addiction or cancer. In fact, alcohol (especially red wine) has health benefits. Tobacco has not one single health benefit and the most common outcome of consuming it is addiction, chronic illness, and shortened life expectancy. Tobacco companies profit off addiction. So please, take your uneducated comparisons elsewhere.
Greg Alan March 24, 2014 at 09:48 am
Not arguing here, about the facts of tobacco, and how it kills people. Not comparing alcohol, toRead More tobacco, & which 'drug' kills MORE people. People make CHOICES to buy these items. People also choose to drink irresponsibly, and kill, injure, & affect families, when they choose to DRINK & DRIVE! Smokers affect their own health! Which is more evil? I agree with Tony!

Now if only we could level the Taco Bell and put in a Chipotle
B.S. Buster February 25, 2014 at 09:31 pm
Why would you "level" one of the few places that have made a go of it for years here?Read More There's plenty of room for a Chipotle without tearing down anything. I don't eat at either, but live and let live...
