campton village: Victory for A New Batch Wanting to Leave Campton - 03/10/09 01:54 AM
I've been out of the political realm since the election this past fall.  I've been all about unity and not fighting the administration that ruins runs our lives in Campton anymore.  In truth, I have so much in common with many pro-campton people, but we disagree wholeheartedly on a need for more taxation and big government. 
Yesterday, Judge Colwell gave reprieve to a group of homeowners who wanted to leave the Village of Campton.  I guess I find some relief in knowing that homeowners who bought property in unincorporated Kane County, get to go back to what they had purchased.  They got … (2 comments)

campton village: I Met A Great Man Today....even if he was Pro-Campton - 11/19/08 03:36 AM
As the Campton dust settles and the businesses try to stay open and the people worry about the economy and Wall Street seems more like Dirt Street, I have been fielding other dissapating comments at to this who Campton issue.  Frankly, I hate it. I've always hated it.  No one can tell me that more government is better, but alas, I digress. 
I lost.  I lost my rights, my freedoms and ultimately the election on November 4th.  In consolation, I have told all that I would move on an seek for the healing of our community.  I'll never understand why any … (5 comments)

campton village: Campton The Promise - 09/26/08 02:01 AM
Just signed on today and got an broadcast e-mail showing the new site for the opposition against Campton Hills.  I've cut and pasted, but you can get the information yourself from the site.  The site is  Do your own research and make your own decisions on what you want to do, but this looks like a very well thought out site.  All of the citizens in Campton are concerned with the future of the area out here.  It's taken over 2000 signatures to get on the ballot to dissolve Campton where it only took a few signatures to create this … (0 comments)

campton village: Vote Yes....for the Campton Hllls Dissolution - 09/23/08 05:23 AM
Time is always of the essence.  It's time that the Citizens of Campton Hills band together to let their voices be heard.  It's on the ballot and there's a lot of information for and against keeping this entity together.  We already know that a special service tax has been created for a drainage district despite the claims of no new taxes.  The villagers are free to vote any way they want, but the time to act is now.  Check out the site  Although, I'm not involved with any organization, I have strong feelings towards this dissolution.

campton village: Campton Dissolution Is on The Ballot!!!!!!!! - 09/01/08 02:19 PM
A lot of taxpayers want out of Campton Hills...or whatever the name of the community of the month is.  People overwhelmingly want out.  Petitions for disconnect continue forth.  Judge Colwell ruled that the first two dicsonnect are allowed to leave and return to the peaceful entity formerly known as Campton Township.
There's a great amount of people who want to also see the entire frigging community go bye-bye.  More than enough people have demanded that the residents take a vote.  The vote simply needs to ask....SHOULD CAMPTON HILLS BE DISBANDED?????  Although the answer to this is a resounding yes, certain … (2 comments)

campton village: Goodbye Campton Hills. We can always hope!!!!! VOTE DISSOLVE!!!! - 08/25/08 02:59 PM
Check this out.  The referendum on the ballot!  Most importantly, it's the referendum of Campton Hills.  The village is trying to get this removed, but it appears that all is good.  Very excited to have this on the ballot.  Let's see if we can get this Village to go away.  Check out  Good things could be coming back to the residents fomerly known as Wasco, Campton Township and residents of Kane County.  Please vote to bring back the way of life we had prior to the creation of the Village.  Get out and vote.

campton village: More Irresponsibility in Campton Hills - 08/19/08 04:56 PM
The KAne County Chronicle Today wrote about the village dissolution....A question to dissolve the village should not be on the Nov. 4 ballot because it is the wrong election and it was filed too soon after incorporation, four Campton Hills residents say.In court papers filed late Friday, Edward Fiala III, Aubrey Neville, Nancy Nickels and Linda Smith sued Chris Baldwin and Kane County Clerk Jack Cunningham to remove the dissolution question before ballots are printed. An initial hearing on the issues is scheduled today before Kane County Circuit Court Judge Michael Colwell."We are asking the judge to act quickly because the … (0 comments)

campton village: Campton Hills...My Personal Experience - 08/08/08 02:17 AM
The microburst that came through monday night left devastation at our house.  A lot of our roof was ripped off.  Shingle nails came down and pierce car tires.  13 large trees were torn down, but ultimately our family was safe.  No one was hurt.  We couldn't access our street because of all of the trees down on the street.  Later that evening Campton brought out a front loader and pushed the trees into the yards to make the streets accessible.
We had family come over to remove the trees and the pieces of our neighbor's homes that landed in our yard.  … (6 comments)

campton village: Betty Loren-Malteese Leads Campton Hills?????? - 08/03/08 04:42 PM
Funny thing happened to me last night.  I was out eating in Geneva when I ran into Paul Fritz, local landscape business owner who is trying to be squeezed by the local dictatorship, er government.  Mr. Fritz was telling me of his woes and the villages desire to burden him with a ridiculous SSA (Special Service Area) tax.  I later went home and found an article on Paul Fritz from the Kane County Chronicle. 
Evidently, there is a drainage problem and Kane County is going to pay for about 1/2 half of the cost to make these changes.  Having said that, … (4 comments)

campton village: Campton's Leaders Back Down.... - 07/18/08 03:21 PM
Campton Hills has decided to allow the petition for the dissolution of Campton HIlls to be certified.  Mind you, these leaders have spent a lot of time and money creating a community that most people now don't want.  They incorporated, and have spent a lot of money in legal fees fighting subdivisions that have the right to opt out.  What's so amazing is that I believe the majority of Campton's residents don't want anything to do with this village, but we're being taxed to pay attorneys to keep us hostage in Campton.  So stupid isn't it? 
I have spoken to people … (0 comments)

campton village: Campton Hills....the cards begin to crumble!!!! - 07/17/08 03:17 PM
Looks like the people are speaking.  The question becomes...IS THE VILLAGE LISTENING.  It only took, what, 250 people to get the referendum on the ballot to create this quagmire, but they needed over 2000, yes two-thousand, signatures to get the ballot to state, 'LET'S KICK OUR NEW VILLAGE TO THE CURB.  Long overdue. 
The village had a short notice meeting to discuss the actions of the village clerk.  You can find the referendum for the DISSOLUTION OF  CAMPTON, as well as the emergency board minutes that focused, for the most part on the clerk....not the resolution.
I've spoken to people who supported … (4 comments)

campton village: Campton Hills...the house of cards begins to crumble - 06/12/08 04:18 PM
Well just as I've been saying all along.  All those promises of NO MORE TAXES helped our Village of Campton Hills officials get elected and a new town created.....Gross.
The Kane County Chronicle reported yesterday that "Campton Hills wants to create a special tax district to pay for drainage improvements in the Evening Prairie and Verhaeghe subdivisions and about 87 adjacent acres. About 40 homeowners are affected. County officials say the area's aging drain tiles are on the verge of collapse and the work is necessary."  A courageous land owner, Mr. Paul Fritz, evidently is considering fighting this tax.
Of course, … (4 comments)

campton village: Communism has come to Campton... - 05/29/08 02:24 PM
Last week, I went to the Board Meeting for the Village of Campton Hills (VofCH).  The VofCH declared the dissolution petition containing 2100 signatures -determined to be valid by the Kane County Electoral Board this past December - to be VOID. Patsy Smith briefly feigned concern about providing some sort of explanation to the audience as to how this decision was reached. Attorney Braithwaite, in a side comment to President Smith, indicated that no explanation was necessary.The Board, none of whom dared to make eye contact with the mostly anti-Village audience, unanimously approved the decision. So much for open government and self determination!
Campton Hills officials took steps Tuesday to … (2 comments)

campton village: Walk with your IPOD and get Ticketed in Campton - 05/16/08 01:48 AM
Now that Campton Hills is slowly falling apart, I think that it's time to share with you the latest incident that happened last week out in the Village.  This is crazy stuff.  As you know, the "Owners" of this village, Patsy Smith, et al. have represented that they are going to run the village with no new taxes. salaries, new costs, more overhead and purchase village SUVs and no new taxes. 
There are the regular reports of getting ticketed for speeding 48 in a 45 zone.  Yes the speeder sped, but again, common sense is not prevailing here.  But with … (3 comments)

campton village: Step Up and Stop Campton Hills - 10/29/07 02:29 PM
Free us from Campton Hills has a political PAC organization. is the website.  I've posted so many times about this.  I'm not involved politically in a direct, tacit or indirect way.  I'm just a concerned citizen who hates the irresponsible government that exists and that wants to tax us against their campaign promises of establishing a government without new taxes.....below is an excerpt from that site that was published October 14, 2007..........
The open areas surrounding Homeward Glen had been pastoral farmland for decades and beyond. A few years … (0 comments)

campton village: Crap given out in Campton Village....NO SHI_!!!!! - 10/22/07 02:44 PM
Interesting development coming down the pipeline in Campton VHills, Village, Township or whatever these people are calling themselves now.  There is obvious opposition to this tax raising entity.  These people ran on a slate saying that they are not going to raise taxes, but have already pushed for salary increases, hiring for an understaffed police force and an admission that they won't be able to do these things without raising taxes....
One of the local people who are involved with the group Free Us From Campton came home and found a piece of human feces wrapped in toilet paper in his mailbox.  … (4 comments)

campton village: Campton Trustees can't agree on Salaries - 10/17/07 07:13 AM
Campton Hills trustees can't agree on how much they are to be paid.  Patsy Smith, who is now shoving a tax increase to the community for a police force increase, is now asking for more money for herself.  This is from the administration that ran it's campaign on not having to need new taxes to create this new entity to support our community.  Charles Cappell seems to be the only trustee insisting on honoring the terms that they posted in order to get this village in place.  In other words, everyone else doesn't care to honor the platform that they used to … (2 comments)

campton village: Campton Hills either needs real leaders or they need to disband. - 10/16/07 07:07 AM
Just recently we had a nice little double homicide in Campton Hills.  The police Chief didn't show up to the murder scene.  County officials came.  These Village officials ran a campaign stating that there would be no new taxes since they wouldn't need them.  I argued that there are 1 of two questions that come into play when questioning the leadership of these "leaders."
 1)  Either they were lying in order to get votes necessary for them to create this new government entity that would exist without new taxes or;
2)  They weren't smart enough to know that creating a new government would necessitate … (2 comments)
