One of the problems with small towns is there isn't much going on. Once you are done picking on SIUC, I'm having trouble figuring out something worthy of my time.
Two mayor candidates? One have no plan and the other no clue, should be interesting if Brad doesn't run.
To many restaurants? Yes, but with consumer spending down that should fix itself before long.
Gold's Gym opening? They are just nuts. What a waste of money. Like the Carbondale pool, the REC center will eat their lunch.
Wendler seems to be trying a hostile take over of the A/P Staff Council. I hear the best way to get a raise at SIU is to become chairman, the second best way is to be elected to a leadership roll on the A/P Staff council For a guy with dropping enrollment and no brochures in high school guidance councilor's offices, he does seem to have some time on his hands. Must be waiting for architect plans for Saluki at 150 buildings.
Anyone got anything juicy they to get out in the open? :)
