Signs Don't Vote!!!

Tomorrow, Chrissy Welch and his crew of gangsters will go packing. Sources tell the highlighter2 that Chrissy Welch is very nervous about the election tomorrow. Chrissy Welch, the mediocre attorney who was raised by a pack of wolves, works for James J. Roche and Associates. Sources tell the highlighter2 that Chrissy Welch will be fired tomorrow if he loses control of SD209 school board. Since losing the State Representative election against State Rep. and Committeeman Karen Yarbrough, Chrissy Welch is having difficulty finding and keeping clients. Mr. James J. Roche is refusing to keep Chrissy Welch on his payroll while he tarnishes his law firms reputation. Sources say Welch is forcing the janitors at SD209 to work the polls or else.

Can someone tell Chrissy Welch that signs don't vote? Will Chrissy Welch start practicing law out of his $500,000 house in Hillside that was paid for by taxpayers?

SD88 Superintendent Nichelle Rivers Set-up and Suspended!!!

Sources emailed the provisohighlighter2 and telling the highlighter that SD88 Technology Coordinator, Al Stamps, secretly sent the inappropriate porn photos found on Principal Glover's district issued computer to the news stations. Sources say Al Stamps is close friends with SD88 school board member Ronald Anderson and SD209 School Board President Chrissy Welch. Sources tell the Highlighter that Chrissy Welch planned this set-up after he was fired twice from SD88 as attorney( who billed the district $225,000 in a five month period) . Chrissy Welch, the Insider, had it out for Superintendent Nichelle Rivers since his embarrassing departure from SD88. Sources tell the Highlighter that Chrissy Welch and Ronald Anderson knew that if these photos were found by Superintendent Rivers, she would immediately take action against Principal Glover and they will be able to use that against her.

Principal Glover was also warned about the porn photos back in November 2006, after Al Stamps did a random sweep of District 88 employee computers. Sources tell the Highlighter that Al Stamps suggested the sweep to Superintendent Rivers but she had no idea that Al Stamps, Ronald Anderson and Chrissy Welch are close friends. Also, Principal Glover has a suspended license for a DUI.

Do you know Al Stamps? If Superintendent, what would you do if your "elementary" school Principal had pornography on his computer and was charged with a DUI ? What do you think about Chrissy Welch and his revenge tactics/schemes? Would you want Principal Glover to be your child's principal? How many warnings do Principal Glover need?

Stan Fields is on his way OUT!!!...

Sources have emailed the provisohighlighter 2 at with copies of emails from SD209 School Board Member Theresa Kelly requesting Mr. Fields to add items to the monthly school board meeting agenda. Mr. Fields ignores such requests by Mrs. Kelly until the deadline has passed for items to be added to the agenda. Mrs. Kelly emailed Mr. Fields on February 2nd, 7th, 12th, and 14th requesting, "The Proviso East Alumni Wall of Fame", be placed on the agenda for the February 19, 2007 board meeting. Mr. Fields continued to ignore these emails until February 16th at 11:38 a.m. stating "BOE agenda is finalized 12pm Wednesday preceding the mtg". What an ASS!!! Did Mr. Fields forget that he initiated this discussion at the September 2006 SD209 Board Meeting. Mr. Fields and School Board President Chrissy Welch screamed at Mrs. Kelly, "Show us the money, it's illegal". Mr. Fields also mocked Mrs. Kelly because she used the term "skeptical" instead of "spectacle".

Mrs. Kelly's latest email, dated March 14, 2007, requesting the same item to be added for March 19, 2007 board meeting. Mr. Fields responded March 16, 2007, yet this item was not added to the agenda.

The proviso highlighter received a copy of the complaint filed by Mrs. Kelly that was sent to Mr. Fields regarding election fraud, candidate tampering, and civil rights violation. SD209 Business Manager, Nikita Giraffe Johnson, escorted her aunt, Candidate Robin Foreman, up to the 5th floor at PMSA before office hours while Mrs. Kelly waited patiently on the 1st floor to file petitions for the upcoming school board election in April 2007.

Mrs. Kelly writes,

Date: 2/6/2007
To: Stan Fields
Cc: Board of Education, Illinois School Board Association, Illinois Association of School Boards, State of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, Cook County Clerk David Orr
From: Theresa Kelly
RE: Statement regarding Election fraud, Candidate filing tampering & Civil Rights Violations
On January 26, 2007, I called Sharon Willis, Stan Fields secretary and left a message. I also left a message for Stan Fields, both neglected to return my calls. Eventually, I contacted Marlene McBrien to confirm the location of where the election petitions were to be filed. I contacted Marlene McBrien due to the fact that the letter generated by the Superintendent’s office (Letter to Prospective Board Candidates) was incomplete and did not state the exact floor or room number of the filing office, which would be standard and professional. You will find this to be a direct contradiction to the memorandum issued by Stan Fields on 02/01/2007. To add to this, Stan Fields statements regarding the board meeting on 11/20/06 is irrelevant and does not relate to the specific subject of petition filing that was to take place on 1/29/2007. I have attached copies of both letters in my statement.
On January 29, 2007 at 7:00 am, I arrived at PMSA with Ralph Harris (candidate), entered the building, and was immediately met by Brandon Gale (Director of Security). Brandon Gale advised us to have a seat in the designated waiting area in front of the business office. I engaged Brandon Gale and told him that per my conversation with Marlene McBrien, the petitions were to be filed on the 5th floor in room 517, Marlene McBrien’s office. Brandon Gale informed me that my information was incorrect. Per Brandon Gale, petitions were to be filed at the 1st floor business office. Brandon stated that we were in the correct area and chairs were set up on Friday specifically as a waiting area for potential candidates. I questioned Brandon again, and he assured me that we were in the right place. So myself and Mr. Harris took a seat in the area designated by Brandon Gale.
After sitting for 25 minutes and conversation with Mr. Harris about this situation, I decided to go to the 5th floor, just to confirm that the information we received from Brandon Gale was correct. I walked over and proceeded to call for an elevator to transport me to the 5th floor. Brandon Gale noticed me waiting for the elevator and rushed over to question me. I told Brandon Gale that I was going to the 5th floor to make sure the information he gave us was correct. Brandon Gale replied that I could not go to the 5th floor because, "the 5th floor is locked". I replied to Brandon Gale, that "I just wanted to check". During this conversation with Brandon Gale, Nakita Johnson (Business Manager) and her Aunt, Robin Foreman walked in from a non-designated opposite entrance and proceeded to wait for the elevator to take to the 5th floor. Nakita Johnson, her Aunt Robin Foreman and I exchanged pleasantries and they proceeded to take the elevator to the 5th floor. I told Brandon Gale, that Robin Foreman is a candidate for the board and he replied, "I don’t know her". After this exchange, I again told Brandon Gale that I was going to the 5th floor. Again, he said no, stopped me and stated that he would go check and let us know where to go. I went back to the designated area and joined Dr. Charles Flowers, Robert Harris, Kevin McDermott and Janice Johnson while we waited for Brandon Gale.
At approximately 7:30 am, Dr. Flowers asked Carmella Johnson if she would find out where we are supposed to file our petitions. Carmella Johnson stated that she would find out and give us the information. Subsequently, Carmella Johnson never returned. After waiting for Carmella, to no avail, we asked Stark King ( Business Director) if he knew where we are supposed to file and he replied that he thought that we were in the right place and offered to get us coffee. As suggested, we waited.
At approximately 7:45 am, Brandon Gale returned to tell us we were in the right place and Sharon Willis would be down shortly. Dr. Flowers asked Brandon Gale about Robin Forman, Nakita Johnson’s Aunt. Brandon Gale informed us that she would be coming down also.
At approximately 8:05 am, Brandon Gale returned and informed us that we had to go to the 5th floor to file our petitions and that he would escort us. I stated to Brandon Gale that "I told you in the beginning that we were to go upstairs to the 5th floor". Brandon Gale gave no response. Eventually, we arrived to file our petitions in room 517 with Brandon Gale and tried to enter, but the door was locked. Brandon Gale then contacted Marlene McBrien who came from an opposite door, through the hallway and proceeded to let us in through the designated entrance. Upon walking in, we found Sharon Willis checking the petitions of Robin Foreman, Nakita Johnson’s Aunt. We also noticed that Sharon Willis was on Robin Foreman’s 2nd batch of petitions, which means that that Sharon Willis and Marlene McBrien started the process With Robin Foreman, Nakita’s Aunt before the designated time of 8:00 am. Dr. Flowers questioned Brandon Gale about his role in this process and he stated that, they told him to do it. Upon further questioning, he stated that Nakita Johnson told him to hold us downstairs until further notice.
Nakita Johnson’s office and her secretary Marlene McBrien’s office are set up as adjoining rooms separated by a common door. Due to Marlene McBrien’s office door being locked, the only entrance to the petition filing room was through Nakita Johnson’s door. This is how her Aunt, Robin Foreman gained entrance to the filing room. Without the consent of Nakita Johnson, Marlene McBrien, and Sharon Willis would not have the authority to start the filing process. Furthermore, without Nakita Johnson’s unauthorized visitor’s entrance (Robin Foreman bypassed the visitor’s log, which all visitors are required to sign, escorted by Nakita Johnson) Robin Foreman would not have gained access and attained an unfair advantage for herself and her slate.
Robin Foreman submitted petitions for 4 candidates from her party which happens to be the slate backed by the current school board president Emmanuel "Chris" Welch.
Per the information I have stated, District 209 administration and staff including the office of the Superintendent, conspired and attempted to commit election fraud and purposefully tamper with the candidates filing process to give Nakita Johnson’s Aunt, Robin Foreman and her slate of candidates, an illegal and unfair advantage in the ballot positioning lottery. Per the rules stated in the "incomplete" letter to "Prospective School Board Candidates", "In the event that two or more candidates qualify for this "simultaneous filing", a lottery will be held to determine the order of their names on the ballot". With the conspired actions perpetrated by the Superintendents office down to the Director of Security, the aim was to keep myself and other potential candidates away from room 517 until after 8am, that way Nakita Johnson could sneak her Aunt, Robin Foreman into the filing room so that she and her slate of candidates, backed by the school board president could receive the first 4 slots on the ballot by default. This is inherently dishonest and a direct violation of our civil rights. This also draws into question the actions of the school board president, the superintendent, the superintendent’s secretary, the business director, the business manager, the business manager’s secretary, and the director of security.
Per Stan Fields’ memorandum dated February 1, 2007, he stated, "I am fully responsible for the communication and execution of the BOE candidate filing protocol". Per Stan Fields own admission, he has accepted responsibility for the "execution and communication" which, in essence implicates his office and staff with making a high level attempt to violate the civil rights of prospective school board candidates. Due to the reprehensible actions by the superintendent’s office, I have zero confidence in his objectivity and integrity. This dishonest attempt to commit election fraud should not be limited to a review or investigation solely by the Superintendent’s office due to their involvement. Therefore, I am requesting an investigation of the facts by the offices listed in the cc.

District 209 Board Member

Why is Superintendent Stan Fields ignoring School Board Member Theresa Kelly? Is Mr. Fields displaying honesty and fairness in his practices as Superintendent? Can you trust Mr. Fields to better our schools since he continues to ignore the law? Who does Mr. Fields work for? Chrissy Welch??? What do you think of Mr. Field's anal behavior? Will the new Regional Superintendent Charles Flowers give Mr. Fields the boot?

Is the Proviso Insider a Pervert ???..

The Proviso Insider, Chrissy Welch, is criticizing SD88 Superintendent Nichelle Rivers for standing up and protecting our children from Principal Paul Glover. Obviously, the Insider doesn't have kids and can careless about the safety of our kids at SD88. Some parents are upset with Superintendent Rivers requesting Principal Glover's termination because he is well-liked throughout the community. However, sexual predators are often friendly and very involved with children before they strike. The old saying, "It's always a first time", is a true statement. Superintendent Rivers is only looking out for the best interest of the children at SD88. Principal Glover has issues that need to be addressed. Principal Glover is not working in a factory away from children. He is a "Principal" of a elementary school and his "porn site" hobbies is inappropriate behavior and should not be tolerated at a school district.

UPDATE: According to the news story at, one of the pictures on his computer featured a woman dressed in a school girl's uniform.

Is it acceptable for school personnel to look at porn sites while working around children? Would you want a Superintendent that support this type of perverted behavior? Is Principal Glover so addicted to porn that he could not wait until he got home everyday to view these perverted sites?

SD88 Principal Paul Glover Suspended With Pay...

McKinley Principal Paul Glover is suspended with pay until further notice. Sources say Principal Glover stored inappropriate photos on his district issued computer. Superintendent Nichelle Rivers quickly took action against Principal Glover to protect him from our children at SD88.

What do you think about the inappropriate photos that Principal Glover stored on his district issued computer? Did these photos include underage girls or boys? Should SD88 fire Principal Glover?

Billy Welch in Need of GAMBLERS ANONYMOUS...

Sources emailed the highlighter2 at stating School Board President Chrissy Welch's brother, Billy Welch, was beat and left for dead for an unpaid debt. Billy Welch is a janitor at Proviso West high school and another patronage hire by school board president Chrissy Sissy Welch. Sources tell the highlighter that Billy Welch is having major financial trouble and bill collectors are calling the school daily. Sources say Billy Welch misses work to play blackjack at the casinos. Sources tell the highlighter that Billy Welch and SB88 member Ronald Anderson are partners in the drug game. SB88 board member Ronald Anderson's house was raided two weeks before his school board election and School Board President Chrissy Welch "took care" of the drug charges.

Do you think people with criminal background records should work around our children? Do you think drug dealing employees are selling drugs to our kids? Is Billy Welch endangering our kids lives since he is WANTED by other criminals for unpaid gambling debts?

More Patronage Hiring and Promotions to Come...

The highlighter received an email at stating School Board President Chrissy Welch is going to hire and promote are LARGE number of family and friends at the next school board meeting scheduled on April 16, 2007, a day before he loses control of the school board. Sources tell the highlighter that the feds are aware of Welchs' illegal practices and will indict him soon. Also, Welch promoted his cleaning lady who is also a proviso employee in the Fall of 06.

What do you think about Welch hiring his family and friends? Are these hirings and promotions illegal? Are the cleaning companies so booked that Welch need proviso employees to clean his home?

Proviso First Party Candidates Removed...

The highlighter has learned that SD 209 Proviso First Party candidates, supported by School Board President Chrissy Welch, were removed from the community round table events held by Superintendent Dr. Stan Fields. Dr. Fields is quoted by the Proviso Herald stating, "It really isn't appropriate". The"Meet the Candidates" were scheduled at the same time and place as Superintendent Fields round tables. The Proviso First Candidates are Robin Foreman, Carla Johnson, and Robert Cox.

What do you think about Welch and his dirty tactics? Did Welch think he could get away with scheduling the Proviso First Party along with Dr. Stan Fields?

The "Everybody Hates Chris line" is getting longer...

The results of the 2006 Prairie State Achievement High School Exam were released.

Josh Adams, Forest Park Review, wrote an article dated March 20, 2007 titled, "Scores Continued High Schools' Downward Trend, Fewer Proviso Students Performing at Grade Level".

Mr. Adams writes, "Almost 72 percent of District 209 juniors aren't reading at an 11th-grade level. More than 81 percent can't perform grade-level math and more than 84 percent aren't meeting state proficiency standards in science. On the 2006 exam, Proviso students generally scored lower than they did in 2005. Average scores in reading, math and science all fell. Also, the percentage of students meeting or exceeding grade-level expectations saw declines across the board. In recent months, the school board has been bombarded with rhetoric from the district's superintendent on the need to establish new priorities. Fields has openly criticized the district's past practices of floating fat contracts to inefficient administrators and consultants, all the while neglecting classroom needs. There have been no priorities for spending, other than the self-serving needs of those in control," Fields said of Dist. 209's recent past."

View the entire article at

What do you think about this article? Has majority board ruined our schools with their self-serving "needs"? Is the schools' new website an immediate priority? Do you think Dr. Fields will be able to make a change with Board President Chrissy Welch breathing down his back for jobs, contracts, and money? Will Dr. Fields ever stand up to Chrissy Welch?

Everybody Hates Chris...Stand In Line...

"Another blog obsessed with Chris Welch". The highlighter obsessed with Chrissy Welch, School Board President of SD 209? No. This is another blog that is exposing Chrissy Welch for the crook he is.

Let's talk about the Insiders, Chrissy Welch, obsession list.

1. State Representative Karen Yarbrough
2. Regional Superintendent Charles Flowers
3. SD 88 Superintendent Nichelle Rivers
4. SD 88 Board Members Busby, Doris, and Wicks
5. SD 209 Board Member Theresa Kelly
6. Proviso Probe Carl Nyberg

This jerk, Chrissy, has displayed false arrest records and divorce records on his blog.

The reason why the highlighter is not a fan of Chrissy Welch?

He has controlled our schools for at least 4 years as board president. Majority board are the decision makers for our school district. Their majority vote can change the quality of education our children receive at SD209. In 4 years, a man can fly to the moon and back 240 times. What has Chrissy Welch done in 4 years to better our schools? NOTHING!!! Can you change a school district overnight? No. Can you change a school district in 4 years? Yes.
90th out of 90 is no change at ALL.

What has Chrissy Welch done in the last 4 years to better his pocket book?

In 4 years, Chrissy Welch, has given 40 million dollars of taxpayers money to his contractor buddies. How much of that 40 million Welch received back in under the table contributions? Welch has hired at least 15 relatives costing taxpayers at least $400,000 a year. He has hired friends and girlfriends costing taxpayers at least 1.5 million dollars a year, i.e. Godmother Principal Gorilla Wallace, girlfriend Business Manager Nikita Giraffe Johnson, Assistant Superintendent Dumb Libka, Multi-talented Kyle Hastings with 5 other jobs, Godfather Gene Moore receiving $18,000 a MONTH, picture taker Angela McDaniel receiving $70,000 a year, promoted Jose "Tony" Santiago (retired Feb. 07) with a 5th grade education to a $90,000 a year position and etc. He has financed all of his campaigns. Built a $500,000 house that is cleaned weekly by proviso employees.

Chrissy Welch, the insider, does not want to lose his fringe benefits and must continue to have majority board. DO NOT support his candidates for SD 209, 88, and 89.

What else has Chrissy Welch done to better his pocket book? What has he done for the children of SD209?

SD 88 Candidate Having Second Thoughts???

The highlighter has learned that SD 88 candidate Daphene Walker is having second thoughts about becoming a school board member. Sources tell the highlighter Daphene Walker has learned that if she wins the election, she will become another puppet of Chrissy Welch. Chrissy Welch is the former attorney of SD88 who was fired twice and wants his job back. Also, she is not happy with running mate Tommie Miller because of his horrible reputation.

What do you know about Daphene Walker? What do you think about Chrissy Welch, who charged SD88 $225,000 in a five month period, being re-hired by his friends if they gain majority board?

More Smoke and Mirrors....

The insider reports that "Proviso High Schools District 209 has really gone high tech". Sources tell the Highlighter that teachers at both Proviso West and Proviso East have to buy supplies in order to do their jobs. Proviso Math and Science Academy (PMSA) is the only school that has working equipment.

Why is the Insider, Chris Welch, so excited about a website, yet our teachers at East and West have to pay for supplies with their own money?

Pictures are coming...

Proviso Janitors Upset...

The highlighter received emails at stating proviso janitors were forced to give $50 towards campaign contributions to the Proviso First Party which is supported by Emanuel Chrissy Welch. Sources say janitors and security must support these fundraisers and volunteer to pass out literature weekly. Sources tell the Highlighter that administrators promoted by the majority school board are forced to give large contributions totaling thousands of dollars in order to keep their positions.

Is it illegal to force employees to donate and work campaigns? Is this the reason why certain employees are promoted in order to contribute part of their earnings paid by taxpayers to campaigns?

Karen Yarbrough is doing great things in Springfield...

The highlighter has learned that State Representative Karen Yarbrough is working hard in Springfield to protect taxpayers from negligent board members. State Representative Yarbrough presented House Bill 1680 to amend the school code on February 22, 2007. Voters are often tricked into believing some candidates will better our schools and put our "children first". Once voted into office, these same candidates become arrogant assholes that put our children last. Our schools are ranked 90th out of 90. Yet, School Board President Emanuel Chrissy Welch has financed his campaigns, given millions of dollars in contracts to his friends, and hired his entire dysfunctional family. Emanuel Chrissy Welch, the insider, is having a cow over Bill 1680.

House Bill 1680:

Amends the School Code. Makes changes with respect to requiring a regional superintendent of schools to employ a regional inspector general for school districts; a school board member having a fiduciary relationship with the district; allowing a school board member to be removed for negligent (rather than wilful) failure to perform his or her official duties, any violation of the School Code, or a breach of fiduciary duty; prohibiting a school board member from holding any other public office; requiring a district to establish a database listing all vendors who have contracts with the district; a school board employing a general counsel; prohibiting a school board member, employee of a school district, or general counsel from being interested in any contract, work, or business of any school district, in the sale of any article, or in the purchase of any property that belongs to any school district, is sold for taxes or assessments, or is sold by virtue of legal process at the suit of any district; and exceptions to the requirement that contracts involving an expenditure in excess of $10,000 be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder.

What do you think about House Bill 1680? Why is Welch so scared?

Welch... your calls to Springfield will be IGNORED!!!!

Bellwood SD88 Families First Candidates...

The highlighter is receiving emails at supporting Families First candidates, Antonette Doris, Dorothy Smith, and John Wicks Sr. Board members Doris and Wicks Sr. voted to fire Emanuel "Chris" Welch as attorney for SD88. Attorney Welch charged the school board $220,000 in legal fees in a five month period. Sources tell the Highlighter that Attorney Welch's fraternity brother, Tommy Miller and family, is racking up at least $100,000 a year from SD209 in salaries, contracts, and stipends paid by the taxpayers of Proviso Township.

What do you know about the Families First candidates?

Regional Supt. Charles Flowers will make a difference...

The highlighter has learned that newly elected Regional Superintendent Charles Flowers will start his new position on July 1, 2007. One of his job functions is to remove any members of a school board for failure to perform official duties. Sources say School Board President Emanuel "Chris" Welch, the author of the Insider, is "losing his rabbit mind" fearing Dr. Flowers will put an end to his shenanigans at District 209. Dr. Flowers is well-respected throughout Proviso Township and is truly concerned about educating our children.

Did you vote for Dr. Charles Flowers? Is Emanuel "Chris" Welch losing his "rabbit mind"?

A conflict of interest in Forest Park???

The highlighter has learned that former Forest Park Police Sergeant Dan Harder was terminated last year after he filed a lawsuit against the Village of Forest Park. Forest Park Mayor Anthony Calderone is suspected of instructing Police Chief Ryan and other village employees to terminate former Police Sergeant Dan Harder. The Fire and Police Commission is responsible for hiring, promoting, and firing public servants.
Coincidentally, the chair of the Forest Park Fire and Police Commission is Amy Rita. According to Josh Adams, The Forest Park Review, "The board's chairwoman, Amy Rita, has received financial gifts from Calderone, according to campaign contribution reports maintained by the state. Rita is also a volunteer in the mayor's re-election campaign and regularly features a column penned by him in her publication, the Forest Park Post." Visit to read article written by Josh Adams.

Is the relationship between Mayor Calderone and appointed Commission Board Chair Amy Rita a conflict of interest? Is retaliation the common practice if one files a lawsuit in the public sector?

"National Investigations" will solve it's first case at 233 Oakridge

Sources emailed the highlighter at stating School Board President Emanuel "Chris" Welch registered his relative for classes at Proviso West High School using his address. The student's mother is, Denise L. Daniels, who is employed as security officer at Proviso East High School and is not a resident of Proviso Township. Sources say the minor child cursed teachers daily and started fights in the classrooms at Proviso West and often stated, "F... You, I'm kin to Chris Welch." Sources say the child was transferred to Proviso Area Exceptional Children (P.A.E.C.) in Maywood. Sources believe the child was kicked off the school bus because of his rotten behavior. Sources say the school bus picked up the child from the house of School Board President Welch on Oak Ridge street in Hillside. Teachers at Proviso West were thrilled when learning the student transferred.

Can non-resident employees bring their children to school? Why did School Board President Emanuel "Chris" Welch and the school board approve a $45,000 contract for the National Investigations company to investigate residency and he is violating the school residency policy? Is Mr. Welch exempt from investigation because he is the school board president?

Some bloggers have emailed the highlighter expressing concerns about their identity being revealed. Most of the fear is from Proviso area employees. Rumor is, people have lost their jobs at District 209, 89, and 88 for speaking out against leadership.

First, the highlighter will never post an email with your email address. A lot of bloggers have email addresses that include part of their real names. If anyone fears emailing the highlighter, create a free hotmail email address at Second, it is a shame that employees are working in fear at our schools. Email topics to

How can we bring about change in our district if people are in fear of speaking out?

Shake up in management at Maywood Police Department

Breaking News: The highlighter has learned that Former Deputy Chief Donald Mobley has been demoted to Lieutenant. Sources say Chief Elvia Williams is taking action against incompetent leadership. Great job!!!, Chief Williams.

Is Maywood finally heading in the right direction?

Education Reformers...

The highlighter has learned that a new slate is running for Proviso School Board District 209, the "Education Reformers." This slate consist of Ralph Harris of Bellwood, Theresa Kelly of Maywood, and Kevin McDermott of Westchester. The highlighter is receiving a large number of emails favoring the "Education Reformers." Proviso schools are in desperate need of reform.

What do you know about the Education Reformers?

"Real Men" don't degrade and abuse women!!!

The Proviso Insider (Chris Welch) continues to attack school board member Theresa Kelly. Men with honor and integrity will never verbally attack or abuse women by any means. Board President Welch verbally attacks Kelly in open session at board meetings. Rumors are, Welch verbally and physically abused his ex-girlfriends. Shame on you, Welch.

Does Welch have a problem with women? Did he grow up in a dysfunctional family? Why is Welch such an ASS? Is Welch a real "MAN"? Who was his role model, IKE TURNER?

Superintendent Nichelle Rivers a proven leader...

The new Superintendent at District 88, Nichelle Rivers, is doing an excellent job! Parents, administrators, and students are excited to have her aboard.

What changes or improvements do you see in District 88 since Superintendent Rivers joined our school district?

Proviso First Party candidate arrested for drugs!!!

The highlighter has learned that one of the Proviso First Party candidates was arrested for possession a few years ago. Stay tuned for updated information.

Is Welch waiting outside county jail to recruit political candidates and friends? Do you know which candidate has an arrest record?

UPDATE: The highlighter has learned that Proviso First Party candidate had her record expunged with the help of Attorney Emanuel Welch. Case # 96CR44018901. The highlighter will not disclose the candidates name. This case is from 1996, Possession of a Controlled Substance.
Rumor is, Attorney Welch is assisting Ronald "RC" Anderson with his expungement(s) as well.

WANTED: New Leadership at Proviso!!!

The highlighter is fed up with Proviso School Board President Emanuel "Chris" Welch. The Insider ( Chris Welch) is supporting the Proviso First Party candidates, Robin Foreman, Carla Johnson, and Robert "Bob" Cox. Citizens of Proviso, we CANNOT let Emanuel "Chris" Welch continue to ruin the lives of our children. Welch is using Proviso to finance his campaigns and employ his family and friends. Our schools are ranked LAST! Maybe Welch should keep his day job because he SUCKS at leading and educating our children. He has lead our schools into the gutter.

What do you know about the candidates of the Proviso First Party? What do you want to tell the candidates that Welch is supporting?

Thank you, Proviso High-lighter
