Nursing Home driven out of town

No Progress

Everybody remember the nursing home that was to come to town last year? Spearheaded by Bart Lind and aided by Boyd, Mitchell, and Crabtree, they successfully ran this new business out of town when it was set to open on the Newton Ball Field.
Now this business went to West Frankfort and was welcomed with open arms. It was set up in no time and is now operating there with 12-15 really good paying jobs that could've come to JC. And these guys are supposed to be "businessmen"? Nice job Bart and the good ole boys. Way to keep JC back and progress out. PATHETIC!

Ever since Lind got elected it has been what is best for him and his family, not what is best for the city. Virginia Burton had some strange ideas, but she at least had the best for the city at heart.
Both him and his wife must have a huge ego to feed.

Although Boyd will never officially be mayor, he still gets to call all of the shots with Bart Lind like he does with Mitchell. At least Bart has a little more time to get family members on the city payroll before Mitchell comes back.

Bart is good for something. He had a big hand in losing Pittsburgh water contract which resulted in raising water bills for us. He helped run off good employees that cared about our town and where it was going. He ran off nursing home and jobs for our town. Way to go Bart. Your the man. Of course he could not have accomplished all this without Boyd first working his business magic behind the scenes telling Ryan horn what he should do before he was elected then side by side with Mitchell as alder mayor ,after horn realized what was going on and ran away, as they tear our city down bit by bit.

Good nursing homes are hard to find. There are waiting lists for the better ones. It is not too late for JC to build one. The fact that WF has one would have nothing to do with it as demand far exceeds supply

Hey Bart, if they want to put a nursing home in Boyd's neighborhood don't run it off.
Maybe he would move out of town.
Then again maybe he would also hit on some of the ladies in the nursing home. LMFAO
