Are you kidding? Why should tenants who pay rent, live in this community not be allowed to put out stuff for junk day? Maybe the village should make junk pickup later in May so hopefully the rain is n...

The proposed buying of two homes next to the school for half a million dollars and removing these properties from being taxed is absurd. Then having to pay for the removal & any other costs down t...

Dog chained to a tree stretches his neck until he’s pulled back. Some kids go by; he barks. He wants to play. Or some food, either one. They back away with big eyes. Nobody likes a dog chained to a tr...
