Proviso Probe

Thursday, April 27, 2006

GOV, Monday's board meeting [D209]

Proviso Probe covered the meeting.

But you can get other perspectives from Pioneer Press (John Huston) and Forest Park Review (Seth Stern).

Pioneer Press:
The District 209 School Board was scheduled to vote on switching its attorney Monday night, but minutes into the meeting the item was yanked from the agenda.

It was a Melrose Park-centered issue.

Board member and Melrose Park resident Gary Marine admitted placing the item to replace the law firm of Odelson & Sterk, which has represented the District 209 Board since 2001, with Giglio & Del Galdo -- village attorneys for Melrose Park.

Marine is also employed by the village of Melrose Park.

Forest Park Review:
Out of the 66 items on the agenda at the Proviso High School District 209 school board meeting Monday night, the one that drew the most attention was the one that was not even voted upon.

That item was a proposal to remove the law firm Odelson and Sterk as the school district’s general counsel and replace them with the firm Giglio and Del Galdo, LLP.

At the outset of the meeting, after emerging from a closed session meeting that lasted nearly two hours, board President Chris Welch announced that the item had been pulled from the agenda at the request of board member Gary Marine.

Over Marine’s objections, Welch said that he would allow public comment regarding the issue during the portion of the meeting typically reserved for comment concerning items on the agenda. Burt Odelson of Odelson and Sterk then proceeded to blast Marine, who requested that the item be placed on the agenda in the first place.

  • COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION TO REMOVE LIBKA AS CEO STATES:

    Having a phone is what all board members have in 88, 89 and 209. even trustees have phones. The trustees in Bellwood are given free gas. It comes with the territory. It is apart of the position.

    I don't see people upset about LIBKA EMBELZELLING $9,000 from the district to pay for his schooling. He is not certified to be the CEO, he does not have the education, smarts, the know how, and is JUST A BIG DUMB ROCK! He did not get board approval to to go to the bank and withdraw $9,000.

    PEOPLE ARE POINTING FINGERS AT OTHERS BUT IT IS OKAY TO SEND A WHITE DOG CRACKER TO SCHOOL ON TAXPAYERS EXPENSE, WHILE HE INSULTS BLACKS AND MEXICANS AT BOARD MEETINGS. HE SAID AT THE LAST MEETING THAT LOW INCOME CHILDREN ARE KNOWN TO HAVE BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS. WHAT RESEARCH HAS HE DONE ON THIS?

    This is just another example how Welch will jump for Whitey at the expesene of his own people. Libka is a under cover racist and Welch knowningly supports him.

  • Can someone please give Angela McGee the basics in writing and grammar? I would be willing to have my tax dollars pay for her to attend a conference to help her learn 8th grade writing skills and speaking skills. Please don't let this woman send or distribute anymore poorly written press releases or articles. People in the community, other journalists and writers laugh at her and make fun of Proviso because their PR person is damn near illiterate. Please can someone buy her SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK!!!!

    How could Welch hire someone so low functioning? Please let Danielle and Ashley take over all writing projects for the district. It is a bit embarassing to have the lowest scoring students in the state and the lowest functioning adults too.

    UR right. Hey, I am black.But, guess what black folks aint running nothing yet, it is still "You People"-the white boys. The problem is when you all were running it, your children were in the schools and the majority of you all were still living in the community. Now, you white boys are just pimping the community. Until, you guys get the hell out of OUR community and go some where like Elmhurst - across the expressway- maybe we want have the Libkas, the Pascales, the Serpico all the white boys who have a bunch of house niggers helping them. Because, I know and you know and everybody reading these comments know, that the white boys do not give a shit about blacks, they are just in the neighborhood to get their hands on some contracts/jobs. I call these white boys, reject white boys, because they could not pull that shit in white communties -like Elmhurst. Black folks need to wake up and recognize and get these crackers out of our business. Hey, Carl, don't your hippy ass delete this.

  • Wow that was really Disgusting


    It proves the mentality of some folks

    It's truly quite a shame

    It's really Shameful how some people have to stoop to that level

  • My guess is that the "racist crap" seen here and on other blogger sites simply enables the discontented to vent what is a serious case of anger and frustration, the kind that warps and negatively alters many of relations and responsibilities we share in relations towards others.

    It's almost as if such people are borderline pathological, taking what's happening inside their own heads to be reflective of the actual reality in a situation. I think they're sick.

    The tendency may be that they see themselves as right or justified in their views. Most their protestations are absent of any logic, even utterly ridiculous, yet they do get the benefit of speaking their mind.

    However misguided, these virtual "drive-bys" offer the advantage of the precluding more serious activity on the part of the "perp". In that respect I appreciate venues such as Proviso Probe.

  • From the Chicago Tribune editorial

    Ryan has claimed all along that he did nothing wrong, and that he knew nothing about the crimes of his compatriots. His evident attitude toward his own corrupt acts mirrored the phrase his lawyer frequently used during the trial's closing arguments: "Who cares?" Twelve jurors cared. Twelve jurors, acting for the 12 million people of Illinois. Twelve jurors devoted to the notion - plainly novel to Ryan - that citizens are entitled to the honest services of the public officials they elect to office.

    Lead Prosecutor Patrick Collins

    "Whether you're the dogcatcher or the governor, you are elected to do work for the citizens," said lead prosecutor Patrick Collins in another post-verdict news conference. "This duty of honest services is not something it takes someone with a law degree to understand. Public officials have a duty of honest services; that is, to serve the people and not their private interests. And anybody who hears this, if they want to serve their private interest, they ought to go get a job in the private sector."

    By Anonymous words to ponder for the 209 board, at 12:16 PM, April 29, 2006  

  • The only board member that is being investigated for any wrong doing is Welch. The FEDS are not concerned that he gave his brother and several cousins jobs. They are not concerned with the big pay back he gave GENE MOORE, $150,000. They don't care that he appointed his DUMB ASS godmother to principal. Welch knows why the FEDS WANT HIS ASS.

    Welch hang it up. You are a liar and everyone knows it. The Italian boys are no longer in your corner. Stop insulting Pam Marine, Flowers, Kelly, and Head. They have done nothing illegal, BUT YOU HAVE! People in in various townships despise you! You have enemies every where. Your own Fraternity hates you. I know the sour welcome they gave you when you ask them to support your state rep bid. EVERYBODY STILL HATES CHRIS! YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO REPLENISH YOUR REPUTATION! YOU ARE DONE!

    Welch tell the public about your cell phone that the district pays for. Tell the public that the district pays for LIBKAS, WALLACE'S, PATCH's, and MCGEE's cell phone. Tell the public about your trip to the Liberty Bowl with your godmother. WHo paid for that. We can build a 40 million dollar school, but can't send kids to a band trip? Tell the public about your conference trip to New Orleans and the National Black Cacus D.C. And by the way you went there with Gene Moore, which is odd. Neither one of you are ever seen with a woman. HUMMMMMMM. Makes people wonder how deep and passionate is your relationship with Gene Moore.

    Tell the public about how you gave a disbarred attorney money to find the magnet school location. Tell the public how you appointed a child molester as basketball coach. Tell the public how you lied and said your parents died in a car crash!

    Tell the public HOW YOU ARE GOING TO JAIL IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.

    Now who is the real crook? Mr. Emanuel Chris Welch? You still are!

  • If Welch, Serpico and Moore are corrupt, what are Flowers, Kelly, Marine and Yarbrough? Didn't Flowers hire all of his cronies when he was President of SD89? Didn't Theresa Kelly do the same when she was President of SD209? Didn't Gary Marine just try to hire the crooked attorneys from Melrose Park? Did he do that in order to keep his high priced job in the public works department or was he promised kickbacks? Didn't Yarbrough get the insurance contracts in SD88 and at the Township? Come on you biased people. If you're going to report, report it on both sides.

Yarbrough did not and does not have any interest in the Township boards or School boards with any insurance contracts. It is the God Father of "Steppin At Club 209",Mr. Moore who was given the insurance contract at 209 and it was Mr. Moore who was found guilty of "CHURNING" funds from one account to the next to collect on the commission from each internal transaction. Read the papers they will tell you who has the insurance contracts, everybody knows execpt you I guess.And to let you in on another little secret, it was Chris Welch Childhood pal who got the construction contracts in SD88 and SD89, Criner construction from Hillside Il.Catch up will you???

  • It is refreshing to know that the readers of this blog are aware of the deception and diversion being played out by Chris Welch.

    This should show us that we have to be more vigilant than ever when it comes to working for the best interest of our children and our community.

    This is a wake up call!

    In the past, we paid little attention to the school board and politics that affect our community and the everyday lives of our children. We have learned that this is not the proper way to go through life.

    When we turn a blind eye to politicians whose interests are self-serving we end up with 40 million dollar back door deals, out of control construction costs, under qualified relatives and friends controlling positions of power and systematic presidential impropriety.

    The question is, now that we know the above to be fact, how do we go about creating change and reclaiming our communities?

    We have to galvanize our base and take grass roots, commonsense approach. We have to literally touch every citizen in the community and appeal to their sensibilities and their thirst for progress.

    We cannot afford to let this opportunity pass us by. Our work has only just begun, but unified and determined, we will make a difference in Proviso Township!

    By Anonymous Our time has come!, at 10:34 AM, April 30, 2006  

  • To our time has come, I agree with you that we,the community of parents,all the residents of Proviso and the taxpayers have been taken advantage for way to long,by these people who talk out of both sides of there mouths.
    We need to either elect individuals who's sole purpose is the betterment of education for all the students and we need to pass a resolution or a law that there be term limits on anyone's involvement.
    No more abuse of our tax dollars,we need answers,from Welch on why he needed to pass a back door referendum and we need Kelly and Flowers to answer why they arein favor of the taxpayers paying for the cell phones, and why do they think it's important to take so many school convention trips annually,without having a way to show the taxpayer where and how our money is being spent!
    Also why do we need to have board members on the board longer than two terms?
    No more politicians on school boards should be the motto!
    We should ask Mr. Welch to please hand over all the travel expenses of each board member with all expenditures itemized as well as the costs,bills and number of calls each board member has made monthly ,so we the taxpayer can decide if this is where we want our money spent!
    Also I have not seen a response to the questions asked of Ms. Kelly. Does she think that she does not have to answer to the taxpayer?
    What about Flowers with his use of a Blackberry phone? he has yet to respond.
    That attitude of disdain and disrespect to the voters,parents and taxpayers may play in Maywood, but the rest of the township is offended and wants a response,if not we will wait until election day to give you are response!

  • Welchy people see right through your games and false statements. You are not even able to disguise yourself when you are writing lies and your supporters must get brownie butt kissing points for helping you come up with the garbage that you generate. I am sure you have to write the janitors and security statements for them or is Wallace and her dazed and dumb sister doing all the editing and writing for you. You are a pitiful human being and the people that support you are either dirty like you; a relative; an employee that you promised a job, or are eating from the Proviso Pot of money you have secured for them. Why did Proviso ever vote you in? We were better off with Manzo and Klaycinski becuz you are far worse than those stooges. You make Manzo look like an angel and Klacinski look like the Virgin Mary. You are a modern day female slave. You are getting raped by the white man.
    As for your supporters you will never get the support that Yarbrough, Davis, Kelly, Flowers, Pasquele, receive. You don't have the legacy that they have, you have nothing but a little piece of the pie. You are still a share cropper, and you still owe the Master at the end of each year. Your supporters are criminals, janitors, and former teachers that don't even live in Proviso, What an IMBECILE you are! While you are blasting others, you need to get your campaign together because it is falling apart. I wonder why you dropped the suit against Nyberg. Inquiring minds want to know Mr. "I can't tell the truth to save my soul" Welch! Why did all of a sudden did Mr."I will sue my mama" Welch drop a law suit?

    Check your wig "Baldie Locks" it is crooked. Also, your panties are showing under your house coat. The people in the community are not holding anything back, they are coming strong and deep to make sure you don't get a seat any where elese. If you thought you worked hard to win the school board, get ready for a whole new ball game partner. We are coming out the cracks to put an end to your antics.

    See you in confession, altar boy!

  • I could not believe how arrogant Welch is. I mean I have heard things about him, but never realized that he is so very egotiscal. He needs to understand it is about the children and not that his names appears everywhere. Also, his name appears at basketball games and there was a big banner with his name on it at the homecoming game at EAST. Are the tax payers paying for this extremely large banner that he uses as advertisement? I have seen this blue and white banner at several of the childrens games and it is a disgrace. Carl ask Libka who is paying for this large banner. Does anyone else see the problem with Welch having that large banner at games?

  • Mister Potato Head Strikes Again...

    This is Locked in the Closet #2.
    ATTENTION! ATTENTION! ATTENTION!Welch has locked Mister Potato Head in the closet and has forced him to do such an horrendous act against District 209 children.

    *****Mister Potato Head: Welch, why must I do this, I am a man of God. I sent my children to Walter Lutheran. Look I have on my religious tie tonight. Isn't it pretty like the sky. I just love day dreaming and wondering off into space. Where am I again? Oh, I am sitting in the closet with Mr. Petety Wheat Straw.

    Welch: "Libka, you damn ROCK HEAD just shut up DUMMY, I pay you well to be the White devil and to do my dirty work against the Black men and children in 209."

    ****Mister Potato Head: But why do you lock me in the closet? I can't breathe and I am scared. I need my night light. Can I do magic trick for you? I can juggle. If I juggle four balls at one time will you let me out of the closet? I have done everything you have asked me.

    Welch: I like it in the closet. Because I am safe in the closet I will remain in the closet until GENE MOORE is ready to let me out. You are safe in closet beacuse I am here. I will come out one day, but unitl then do what I say

    *****Mister Potato Head: " Well who are we going to go after next, Berry, Bryant, Robertson, Moore, Novickas, Johnson (the black one)?"

    Welch: "Maybe, but no one, absolutely no one messes with the Wicked Witch of the West Alexis Wallace and her bearded female, testerone gang: Palm, Mcgee, Walton, Miller-Watson, Jones, and the white people she loves more than she loves herself"

    ***Mister Potato: "Okay Boss man, what ever you say. Are you worried? Do you have a conscious? Do you think this will mess up your chance for State Rep.

    Welch" "Libka you BIG ROCK HEAD! Where have you been I lost the election for State Rep. and I lost bad!" "I didn't care about State Rep! I am just an evil nasty man that needs to find some real manly things to do. I get bored knitting, painting my nails, and dressing up for Gene Moore"

    ****Mister Potato Head: But Welch you know the community will know I am not responsible for what is going on, because I am so DUMB and can't make a decision without calling our attorneys! They have to know that I take all my orders from you. I have a hard time getting dressed in the morning, and now I am CEO of 209. My,My, My, my head is begining to swell. Where am I? Who am I? Did I just put my whole foot in my mouth again? My toe tastes a little bitter this time, like salty candy. Do you like candy, Mr. Welch? I like all kinds of candy! I like going to the circus and seeing all of my old friends, the clowns. Hey, did I just hear a toilet flush? That must have been my wife.


    Welch: "Just shut up you idiot and get your head out of the toilet. We have evil and demeaning work to do. Now get Lucifer on the phone! Me and him have a 12 noon lunch date!"

    ****Mister Potato Head: Okay Mr. Petety Wheat Straw! Can me and my wife come with. I will call Mcgee to take pictures. This is going to be big fun. Do I need to call the attorneys to see if I can bring my wife? I can't do anything without their approval you know.
    WOW! We get to meet a real celebrity! Thanks Petety Wheat Straw! Welch you are the bestest BOSS in the world. You gave a RETARD like me the opportunity to be CEO of the biggest circus in town.

    Welch: You are not the CEO of Barnables and Bailey Circus. You are the CEO of district 209, YOU IDIOT!

    *****Mister Potato Head: Sorry, I knew something was wrong. Because I was looking for elephants, tigers, bears, and cotton candy when I got to work today.

    Welch: Libka just shut the hell up and from now on let the attorneys do all the talking.

    **** Mister Potato Head: Talking what talking. I haven't said anything...... Now, where I am?


    This saga continues monthly at 209 board meetings. Stay tuned for another episode of MISTER POTATO HEAD A.K.A. Bob Libka and Mr. Petey Wheat Straw A.K.A. Chris Welch A.K.A the devil's son-in-law

    By Blogger Mister_Potato_Head, at 7:15 PM, April 30, 2006  

  • Mr. Potato Head, Why do you support Welch?
    *****I am very fond of Mr. Welch. He has given me the opportunity to run a school district without having the proper certification. Welch is a wonderful man who has done so much stealing, sorry I mean great things for the community. And as a former clown for the circus I think I have moved up to a really good job thanks to Mr. Welch, I was the best clown north of the Mason Dixie Line. I had a big red nose and shiny black shoes, and I could run really fast and jump really high. Sorry, what was the question again.

    Do you even know the name of the District you work for Mr. Potato Head?
    *****Oh, yes, wait let me call Welch up and ask him if it is okay to give out that confidential information. What was the question again?

    Mr. Potato Head tell the community what are your plans to help bring up the test scores in Proviso?
    *****Well, I don't know. I think we are doing a pretty good job compared to the schools in Iraq. I think I will have to call Welch up and ask him what to say before I put my foot in my mouth again. Wait a minute, Were am I?

    One last question Mr. Potato Head before your head begins to hurt from thinking. Do you agree with the political mess Welch has continued in the schools and do you agree with the political hirings?
    *****Well, I don't think I have messed on myself.

    No, No, Mr. Potato Head. I asked you do you agree with the political mess Welch has created?
    ****Wait a minute, did Welch mess on himself? Because if he did this is the last time I am cleaning his underpants! He messed on himself at the last board meeting and I had to stay after and clean it up. I can't keep changing his DEPEND diapers.

    Mr.Potao Head I have no further questions. It seems that 209 has to start at the top and eliminate you, the MORON, before they can become a better district.
    *****I agree and thank you for the opportunity to have this educational discussion. Say it loud Students first and , I am not a crook!

  • when will kelly respond said...
    To all of Ms. Kelly's supporters,please see what is wrong with your defense of her. Nobody is putting her down, we all fought to eliminate Moore and Welch, but now how can we with good concious stand here and allow Ms. Kelly to slip down the slope of cronism,and the slope of petty corruption?
    She needs to answer the questions, regarding cell phones being paid for her and the other board members by the district as well as the abuse of school trips!
    Why are you individuals against her responding?
    Does it not appear hypocritcal on our part, if we attack the oppostion for there misdeeds, and yet keep quite about Ms. Kelly and Mr. Flowers also taking advantage of there postions?
    It appears to me that neither side has the interest of the children,parents and taxpayers in mind.The only interest is "who becomes the house Niggar" for the MAN!
    Maywood reminds me, as well as 209 ,of the same politics of Sudan, where the oppostion party is only interested in killing there enemies and not doing anything for there country!
    No wonder the white communities of Proviso do not want anything to do with the black community.
    Who could blame them, when neither black faction at 209 will fess up to all the shenagans each pulls on the taxpayers!
    Kelly and Flowers are no different from Moore and Welch,the only difference between both of these gangs of thieves is who'll be allowed to steal!
    Kelly and Flowers should wear a bandana along with there supporters with the colr red,so everyone knows that they represent the bloods, and Welch and Moore and there supporters should wear blue bandanas representing the cripts!

  • There are 2 things that are guaranteed in life. That’s death and taxes. We will be paying taxes all our lives regardless of who’s in control. I am all for conscious spending of my tax dollars for and by my elected officials. All I ask is to be able to see measurable results. Theresa Kelly has showed us all results to the tune of 7.5 million dollars. 7.5 million dollars is an extremely generous return and more than covers her travel costs and cell phone bills. This is not frivolous spending.

    I don’t understand why someone would try to ignore these results and choose to wallow in the pettiness of knick picking and politics. This is a total witch-hunt and an utter waste of time. I do not blame Theresa Kelly for not responding to this nonsense. I would rather have her to continue working to improve my district than answer these ridiculous charges on a blog.

    Now does that change anything about the issue that the taxpayers want a response from her and Flowers? Your spin cannot avoid the questions.Your spin is like comparing apples to oranges,it's two different things!
    Continued Deception,lies,spins,rantings ,changing the subject,personal attacks on others to deflect from what is being sought and what is needed for your redemption, Ms. Kelly and Mr. Flowers won't answer.They both refuse to respond to the taxpayers. There behavior is the equivalent of "His and her Royal Majesty", refusing to answer the questions of the peon taxpayers!!!
    They behavior and there reaction has shown there discontempt towards others,especially the tax payers and voters.What a way to show leadership and moral rectitude!
    There will never be hope for black america with leaders like these who skirt the questions of there corruption and yell and blame others for there problems!
    Just like Marion Barry when caught on videotape smoke a crack pipe with a prostitute,and blaming the media and whitey of trying to set him up, Ms. Kelly and Mr. Flowers are no better.
    And just to think ,that all they had to do was answer the questions?

  • It was not ignorance Carl

    This fine fellow stole my story and then added his own paragraph at the end

    http://www.russstewart.com/4-19-06.htm

    I invite you to read the story fully and then compare and contrast the two...

    You will see a difference in my last paragraph vs. this persons

    That is what Irks me so

    I apologize for my anger in one of my other comments

    But, as I stated previously, it's one thing to steal my work, it's fully another to steal my work and then edit it for your editorial satisfaction

    Thank you for fixing this

  • Russ, I'm sorry.

    Stealing and modifying is exceptionally bad form.

  • I recognized that writing as Mr. Stewart's immediately. As a matter of fact, I googled his web site to find the article. I thought maybe he had post it himself anonymously. But then when I came back here I saw all the comments. I wish the last paragraph can be posted again so that I can see what was actually different. As I recall, it seemed to be completely verbatim. Carl, please at least post the non-plagiarized last paragraph because I don't recall what it said.

  • Does it matter what Triple "t" wrote? S/he is full of shit.

    The mildly altered plagiarizing is a highly dishonest way to do business.

  • At least we could see where he/she was coming from and what type of spin their working.

  • By the way, I agree that whoever it is is full of it. To do something like that is completely classless.

  • To the 209 board,
    Break up Proviso 209 into academies of 500 or fewer students. The teachers will recognize all the students and the principal will know all the parents and the names of the students.

    These are schools built on principles that can be applied anywhere - the new three R's, the basic building blocks of better high schools:

    The first R is Rigor - making sure all students are given a challenging curriculum that prepares them for college or work;

    The second R is Relevance - making sure kids have courses and projects that clearly relate to their lives and their goals;

    The third R is Relationships - making sure kids have a number of adults who know them, look out for them, and push them to achieve.

  • Russ I went to the website and was able to see were there was no questionable about plagarizing your article. It just shows how some people are dishonest and will go to any lengths to prove a point.

    Sorry, but welcome to the Proviso Probe.

  • Has any questioned why CHRIS WELCH has 13 family members working in District 209. These positions were appointed while he was the board president.

    Cliff Kelly, talk show host from WVON, talked about job rigging in City Hall (Chicago). I think District 209 and Chris Welch display every month at board meetings the ABUSE OF POWER BY JOB RIGGING.

    Waiting on response from Welch?
    No answer or response is needed from WELCH. We know what his lies will tell!

    This guy cares more about signs than CHILDREN!
