Chicago Tribune Writes about Crystal Lake South High School Bleachers

Featuring a photo from the football field, Chicago Tribune reporter Robert McCoppin in the fight between Crystal Lake High School District 155 and the City of Crystal Lake.

Calling it a “brouhaha,” the Tribune quoted Mayor Aaron Shepley as saying,
“The damage is done. The only remedy is partially deconstructing it.”

  1. What do you know? Robert McCoppin comes out of his sewer to ineptly write about another dispute.

    What a loser writer…did someone actually edit his rubbish?

  2. Apparently, the falling tree in the forest made enough noise to be noticed in this forum. Yippee-skippee.

  3. A key point left out by the Tribune was District 155 alleges a change in the Illinois State Constitution at the 1970 Constitutional Convention gives them the authority to erect the taller and wider bleachers without village zoning approval.
    Another change to the Illinois State Constitution at the 1970 Constitutional Convention was adding one sentence which states state pensions are contractual and cannot be diminished or impaired.
    After which state lawmakers INCREASED pension benefits for the next 40 years, even as the state was all along shorting their pension contribution.
    The point being special interests succeeded at changing the state constitution to their advantage, to the detriment of the majority of taxpayers.

  4. The district, Ted Wagner & Johnnie Thomas need to stop spending our money & come to an agreement with the city & neighbors. I know exactly which members I will be voting out next election.

  5. THE ONLY ONES GRAND STANDING OUR THE ONES SUING EACH OTHER & WASTING MY HARD EARNED TAX $$, STOP SPENDING MY TAX $$ ON THIS! WE KNOW WHO TO VOTE OUT NOW !
    TAKE YOUR COURTROOM PLAYING ELSWHERE AND PRACTICE IT!
