NIU to Evaluate Clinton


Per the Pantagraph, the City of Clinton will be evaluated by Northern Illinois University to determine the highlights and lowlights of the community. Clinton will spend $30K for this assessment.


I will take this one further. Can the loyal readers of Wapella.com assess Clinton for 1/2 that price? For $15K, oh hallowed county seat, we will offer you a Hog City assessment of your city.


What say the readers of Wapella.com? How do you assess Clinton? What happened to bartender certification as an economic engine in Clinton by the way?

It's definitely not Blue and White, that's for sure.

Do you know why birds fly upside down over Clinton? Because there's nothing worth crapping on in Clinton!

Me thinks you made a typo in the first line. It's lowlifes, not lowlights.

Highlights = Sorrento's Pizza
Lowlights = Everything not listed above as a "highlight"

NIU "evaluating" Clinton is yet another fine example of Illinois' tax dollars at work. Glad I no longer live in Illinois...

How about a little love for the men in blue pinstripes? Magic Number at 9.

The highligts portion won't take long. EEP and I would do it for a week's worth of bar tab and some bad pizza; forget the $30K.

Someone is a great salesman and someone else is a sucker.

Not sure why all the hate from Hog City. I mean you do have an elevator and Clinton doesn't but outside of that I'm looking. Well there is that no.1 liver disease in Dewitt county thingy but I'm not sure that's something you have the state make a sign for.

DE - shouldn't an entrepreneurial Maroon (I'm guessing you're a Maroon?) such as yourself be signing up for bartending classes as Snappers? Good luck making that Jack and Coke. It's a tricky one.

That's what every Wapellican tells me. They can't seem to keep the ingedients straight.
