County Awards Money for Seniors — 5 Comments

  1. More of the already beleaguered over-taxed citizenry’s money pissed away.

    In Illinois, you don’t own your homes and businesses, you are merely the custodians of such.

  2. Social services are garbage. Not wanted. Not needed. I’m a senior and would NEVER have a use for ANY of this claptrap.

    Abe is right on the money here.

    Pissed away is what is imperative.

  3. These are all scams that blow big bucks on ‘administrative salaries.”

    Don’t believe me? Examine their budgets!

  4. so Harvard gets 50,000 with quarterly reimbursements and 10,000 with monthly reimbursements

    what does this all mean?

    what do they use the money for?

    I would really like to know
