Put Crundwell behind bars until sentence

Published: Monday, Nov. 19, 2012 1:15 a.m. CST

A never-ending story: Why, if Rita Crundwell pleaded guilty, was she allowed to walk out of the courtroom?

She should have been carted off in handcuffs until her sentencing. Why is she allowed to spend the holidays with her family while the taxpayers have to do without? 

If it was anyone off the streets, we would have been in jail from the beginning. Has anyone looked to see whether any money was given to Jim McKillips from Rita? I, and so many others, have wondered whether, had this gone to trial, who else would be found in the loop? 

Where is the money that others received in loans from Rita, and when is it going to be given back to the residents of Dixon?

Just a few questions some people I’ve talked to are wondering about.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
