Downtown

Someone was speaking about an ex-(thank goodness!!) councilwoman who is greatly concerned about our riverfront. Guess her concern hasn’t done much good. Her accomplishments on the council in years past weren’t much either. Look at our riverfront today. I haven’t heard many compliments from visitors coming in from the East side! Mike Bailey of the JS recently called attention to the empty buildings and money losing taxpayer supported structures that aren’t even aesthetically pleasing.

Many years ago I inquired with Michael McKnight, (I believe at that time he was in planning and zoning), about relocating in the downtown area. Mr. McKnight said I should go talk to James Polk because that was his district. Hmmmm. Then somehow, this councilwoman who is now active on the Riverfront Commission got involved. When I appeared before the council, she said she didn’t want “big” trucks running around the downtown streets. So I moved my business further out. It’s now way out on Allen Road where the new owners moved it a few years ago.

A couple of years ago this ex-councilwoman told me she couldn’t vote for me because I didn’t support the downtown area. (I’m told her husband is also thinks highly of me.) Wouldn’t know him if I saw him and I don’t remember anything he did for Peoria either.

In earlier articles, I said I would probably not be politically correct and I didn’t suffer fools gladly. And speaking of fools, someone posted a “three word” comment on a post I made that alluded to the Peoria Park District. I suspect it’s the same person, (who does have a limited vocabulary, “yes mam” which is only two words), who was in the area the day my Sharp Viewcam Camera disappeared from a Park bench where I left it minutes earlier... On this camera were anniversary pictures as well as pictures of a couple of the PPD finest managers in action. Hope this person enjoys looking at my wife. Might as well stop by and pick up the carrying case and accessories. You’ll be welcomed!!

Talk to you next week. Have a great Labor Day weekend!!

I'm guessing Sinclair, who is fighting the proposed condo project next to the Detweiller Marina that would actually remove a blighted abandoned factory and make improvements to the whole area.

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.
