There's also 7.6 million Illinois residents that aren't being represented by little Dickie Durbin. Yes the majority rules in our republic but that doesn't mean the minority shouldn't be represented and their rights protected. Durbin is a typical liberal democrat who believes that the socialist agenda comes above all things. The Herald Rag endorsed Durbin because he brings home…

A word of advice. Always get plenty of sleep before coming into contact with Kevin Taute. He may look at your eyes and be so bold, not only as to accuse you of having consumed marijuana, but then additionally suggest you're growing it in a planter pot to distribute as well. What a tool! If only we could all aspire to such douchebaggery.

This is an honest question. Regarding lack of poor judgement during 'protocol'. Of course, what the hell does he care. The gentleman made over 90K in 2010, so likely, reasonably more now. "To serve and collect". Where are good officers these days?

You sound like you are someone who really knows there way around business entities and should be listened to. I mean I know this must be a parody past because surely you know that an LLC is not a corporation. And in almost all cases the members of an LLC are liable to the extent of their money invested in the LLC. B y the way, LLC stands for Limited Liability Company, not corporation. I am sure…

St. Francis breaks ground on $2.9 million Parish Center

7 months, 2 weeks ago by Bob Gough

A groundbreaking ceremony for the St. Francis Parish Center was held yesterday on the church grounds between College and Lind on 17th street.
 
A Building Toegether in Faith campaign was launched in 2012 to raise $2.9 million for a parish center.  It was the first formal capital campaign for the parish in many years - possibly the first ever.
 
The facility will include spaces for the many activities of the parish that now take place in the church or school.The planned parish will be a two-level facility with a covered drop-off canopy, handicapped entrance, additional parking, large vestibule for fellowship, Vestry, choir room, parish library and other meeting spaces.
The center will be located adjacent to St. Francis Church, near the northwest corner of 17th and Elm Streets. 

Campaign events and requests for pledges and gifts from parishioners and community members began 18 months ago.

Campaign leaders, Fr. Don Blaeser, pastor, Mayor Kyle Moore, and members of the Parish and Fransciscan community participated in the ceremony.
