A great Community Spirit - 1/3/2020
I have worked here for two years as a school teacher. However, I do live in another community.

I have come to appreciate and admire the strong community spirit and compassion the residents have for this town.

You will find this commitment expressed in events such as the Fall Applefest, Christmas Toy and Food Drives, and Spring Easter activities.

Mayor Stephans is a great person that shows care and understanding for this Read More

The cop did not even get out of the car! I guess the punishment for dealing drugs in Murphysboro is slightly less than in other locations. Must be a city oridinance thing.

And finally, they really enjoy spraying for Mosquitoes with fogged Diesel Fuel. Nothing like being outside, only to get smoke bombed with a known carcinogen. Why not just set off a nuclear bomb? That would kill them too, you morons!

If you feel like stepping into a 3rd world Read More
