i grew up here. by susiesosad
the school district is terrible.
wal-mart swallowed this small village and barfed up a lot of low-paying jobs (however, i do admit that wal-mart did provide a service that was needed. prior to wal-mart the tiny downtown was defunct. there were limited resources in the area.)
currently, there is an explosion of housing developments attempting to convert this place into a suburb of chicago (a suburb 58 miles, or 1.5-2+ hours away from chicago). buyer beware. predatory lending practices abound, already with TONS of foreclosures.
they did recently get a new library. wow.over 6 years ago
