So you think Steve Ballegeer is a good choice for Mayor? Well if you think it’s ok for him to use YOUR Village equipment and YOUR fuel to plow his dad’s drive OUTSIDE the Village, ILLEGALLY, like he did today (nobody on the Board knew it) then that’s what you’ll get. If you Vote for him as Mayor you’ll have a lot of your tax dollars spent to fill his own pocket…. and you’ll deserve it.

Aaron Brown And the corruption begins.

Aaron Brown Ohhhhhh can you send the mayor to do my driveway too. My father in law lives in Cleveland so he pays taxes. It would only be fair.

Mike Erickson Steve Ballegeer always was corrupt and would love to be Mayor so he can get more kickbacks too for Village purchases AND use Village property for personal use. Leo Henkelman made the motion to start the process of Steve Ballegeer filling his pocket between now and the election… and he will

Aaron Brown With the salt spreader he stole

KeithandNancy Newton Hamerlinck I got up and went to church and the store. Met Gary just starting to plow at 9:30. I hope the roads are not worse tomorrow. I would hate to wait till after 9:30 to leave for work.

Mike Erickson No Aaron they sold the salt spreader last summer for about $100 (nothing wrong with it). Ballegeer made a deal to buy another one last fall for $1400. Was there a kickback to him for that purchase… probably


For several months Cleveland Trustees and Mayor claim they don’t have any way to contact Trustee Taren Komadina. WELL… Her current and working e-mail address is listed on the contact information board POSTED AT THE VILLAGE HALL. They can’t even find a contact listed AT THE HALL, and this is the bunch you expect to make responsible decisions with your tax dollars?

The EPA was called to Lambeau field tonight to investigate a strange smell. The Search was called off after it was determined to be just the Chicago Bears stinking up the place.

Rock Island High School sent this letter to parents. Think EBOLA is just somewhere else? THINK AGAIN.

Dear Rock Island-Milan School District Families,

On Wednesday, Oct. 15, Rock Island-Milan School District Administrators were contacted by the Rock Island County Public Health Department and made aware of an issue involving a Rock Island family who recently had a family member arrive from Liberia last weekend. The family, longtime Rock Island residents, has a student at Rock Island High School.

Given the heightened awareness and seriousness of the Ebola outbreak in the country of Liberia and the spread of the virus in the United States, the Rock Island County Health Department believes that abundant precaution is necessary.

Therefore, the family is going to remain isolated in their home and be monitored by the Rock Island County Health Department for 21 days to rule out any unknown factors that could stem from traveling from a country where Ebola is prevalent. The student will remain at home and will not be attending Rock Island High School until the 21-day period health monitoring has passed.

The Rock Island County Health Department has stated that there appears to be no risk of Ebola to community.

The safety of our staff and students are the priority in the Rock Island-Milan School District. We have placed informational items on our web site with links to the most current information.

The school district will continue to work closely with the Rock Island County Health Department. In the meantime, if parents have any questions or concerns to please call the school district Administration Center at 309-793-5900.


Dr. Mike Oberhaus
Superintendent, Rock Island-Milan School District
