Allegiant Air – The Best Kept Secret in Northwest Illinois – And I Don’t Mean a Good Secret!


Another Allegiant Air flight at St. Pete – Clearwater International Airport aborted its takeoff on March 4, 2017.   The Tampa Bay Times ran an article on November 2, 2016 entitled “Breakdown at 30,000 feet,” and everyone who flies Allegiant Air should read this article.   When will news outlets in Northwest Illinois start reporting the facts on Allegiant Air?   Will it take another ValuJet incident for people to wake up?    I hope not.

The Freeport, Illinois City Council will meet tonight at 6:00 p.m. in its new chambers at 314 W. Stephenson Street (the old library building).  It looks like a busy night for the Council which will consider water and sewer rate increases to fund rebuilding the water and sewer system    Higher water and sewer rates coupled with rising real estate tax rates and unrealistic property tax assessments (recently endorsed by the electorate) make for great economic growth.
