"If you and I both go to the polling place to vote, and I'm freely allowed to vote but you have to pay $20 before you're allowed to exercise that right.... that's not fair." Your words. So, how did YOU get a free ID? You can't vote if you're not a citizen. How did you prove you were citizen? Thomas Paine said…

The problem isn't just dead people voting. It's also living people voting multiple times. On of the Carolina's recently identified 35,000 voters with the same names and date of birth voted more than once in 2012. Most likely these are college students but 35,000 is a major case of potential fraud

Sorry I forgot about John. But Don was before him. Don't know if there was anyone before. I think the Deputy Mayor filled it then.

It certainly adds to the absurdity. @NOTMayorSpring needs a cameo appearance. BG

Bailey Opera House converted to restaurant

Bailey Opera House converted to restaurant

1 year, 7 months ago by Denise Donley

The Bailey House Restaurant opens today in Camp Point

The former Bailey Opera House is now home to the Bailey House Restaurant in Camp Point.

Owners Ted and Sara Lung bought the opera house, which was built in 1893, seven years ago and decided they wanted to provide a place for people to go that's not too
far away, but gives visitors a fine dining experience.

Ted Lung says “In combination with the fine dining experience, we want it to be a fun-filled family atmosphere. Good food, smother them to death with good service and at an affordable price.”

Ted adds he surrounds himself with good people.

“Sara and I figured if our name is going to be on this place, owning it, then this is our style, this is how we like it. We want it done right,” says Ted.

The Lungs began this project 90 days ago and just love restoring downtown buildings.

They restored this building to its original ceiling, brick and motor and mixed the old with the new.

Sara, a piano teacher, has decorated the restaurant with pictures and descriptions incorporating Camp Point's history and had a blast doing so.

A full menu features a large variety including appetizers, daily salad bar and soups, specialty salads, breakfast, loaded omelets, a full line of sandwiches, desserts, kids menu, entrees of steak, pork chops, chicken, roast beef and fish on Fridays, plus daily specials and rotating entrees on weekends of ribs, smoked meats, seafood and brisket. Plans also include a Saturday breakfast buffet and a Sunday Grand Buffet.

“We have made the restaurant as comfortable as possible, providing high backs on the booths for more privacy, but still providing open tables for families and friends to gather,” says Ted. “People like to be able to talk and this will be a quiet setting for them to enjoy themselves.”

The beef is locally grown black angus and the meals are made from scratch.

“As much local as we can as fresh as we can. Very little food out of cans,” says Ted.

The Bailey House is open Monday through Thursday 6:30 am to 8 pm, Friday and Saturday 6:30 am to 9 pm, and Sunday 7 am to 2 pm.

The Bailey House can seat 170 people and has a special Chautauqua room for special events, business meetings and parties.

The restaurant is located across from Railroad Park on 124 East State in Camp Point.
