Proviso Probe

Wednesday, September 28, 2005

Nyberg has two columns published

In the Wednesday Journal I wrote about the peace movement. (Yeah, WJ spelled my name wrong, but they get it right on my paycheck.)

In the Forest Park Review I wrote a two-part column.

I called for Forest Park to do what's necessary to completely close the reserve center on Roosevelt so the land can be developed.

And I drew attention to the problems facing whistleblowers, like Forest Park police officer Dan Harder, who successfully sued the police department for sexual harassment. Since writing the piece I talked to Mayor Calderone. He did point out that the other plaintiff who is still on the force is not having problems.

  • Calderone must have forgotten to tell you that Lt. Cody, who was Deputy Chief and a defendant in the sexual harrassment lawsuit at the time, (and found guilty of simple battery against her in a court of law)has risen back to the top of the ranks and was/is a supervising Lt. over one of the female plantiffs in the lawsuit. She complained to the new Chief & Mayor that it was uncomfortable to have to see him everyday and they have done nothing about it. Perhaps she should just suck it up huh. I guess that's "doing o.k." in Calderone's world.

  • Calderon is planning on endorsing and working for Chris Welch and Eugene Moore! He and Gillian are dragging Forest Park's name through the mud, with their disregard of the village voters, who do not want to be associated with corrupt Melrose Park and Maywood and District 209 officials!

  • I doubt Calderone will endorse Welch for at least a few reasons.

    1. Welch's situation is increasingly untenable and Calderone is aware of this.
    2. Calderone may be willing to work with Bruno, but he's not a kleptocrat like Welch.
    3. It's dumb politics. Even if Welch won, Yarbrough will still carry Forest Park. People like me that don't have an axe to grind with Calderone will be mad at him when he runs for re-election.

    I don't see Calderone backing Welch.

  • Carl, You must not be a taxpayer here in Forest Park if you have no axe to grind with our Mayor. He infused corruption Melrose Park style bringing in the "Bruno's" of the world. Add in drunken sailor style spending that nearly bankrupted the village resulting in employee lay-offs for the 1st time in Forest Park history and careless managment that ended with catastrophic sexual harrassment lawsuits. Now we even have Federal subpeonas making us just like Melrose Park. Calderone is a high school drop-out (really, he couldn't even graduate from Proviso). Do you really think he has any common sense when it comes to Welch?
    Anthony Bruno has an increasingly untenable situation and Calderone still says "He did a good job for us, he is very thorough" to Carol Marin in front of an NBC5 news camera. Calderone is part of the herd. He'll follow where Ronny Serpico leads. Always has, always will.
