Humpfer going back to Court, for what reason?

http://www.dailyherald.com/story/comments/?id=382316

Paul is going back to Court again, should he continue in politics and try to clear his name? Should he concentrate being a good parent?

Knowing not only Paul, but his immediate family I believe he should do what’s best for his children. Quit politics Paul, it’s the only right thing to do.

Sigwalt wanted a casino, but not video poker?

Here’s the typical flip-flopping of Trustee Judy Sigwalt. She proclaimed a couple of years ago, she wanted an Indian Casino in Carpentersville. Now she’s against a revenue source from video poker?

First she’s against the Public Works Building, as recently as the last election in April of 09, and now she’s for it.

It’s basically has to do with petty politics. After all our last Village President Bill Sarto was against any Indian Casino, so Judy had to go the other way. The same thing happened when Bill Sarto was for the new Public Works Building. She was against that wasteful spending, since we couldn’t afford it at the time. Now she flip-flopped with Sarto gone. Now she proclaimes that we need to build a new PALACE for Bob Cole’s employees. Doesn’t matter does it, that we are drowning in debt in Carpentersville today.

Not everyone pulling lever on casino in Carpentersville

Carpentersville Trustee Judy Sigwalt says the village needs to find unique ways to compete with surrounding municipalities for coveted tax revenue.

So, the senior trustee has asked the village staff to research the possibility of bringing a land-based tribal casino to Randall Road, on a 50-acre parcel just north of Huntley Road.

But casino experts and village officials warn local economies do not always benefit when a casino opens — there are no big tax advantages, and restaurants and such on Indian land often steal customers from established businesses.

Furthermore, they say the steps required to open a tribal gaming site would be lengthy and laborious since the land — known as the Heinkel property — is farmland and not a designated Indian reservation.

Sigwalt said the proposal arose after she learned Hoffman Estates rejected an American Indian tribe’s request to open a casino there.

In 2004, Ho-Chunk Nation officials shut the door on building a casino on a 125-acre site at the Northwest Tollway and Beverly Road in Hoffman Estates.

At that time, Hoffman Estates Village President Bill McLeod said the proposal hadn’t gone far before residents and some neighboring towns opposed the plan.

Pingree Grove officials in the same year invested about $17,000 to determine if an Indian casino was a viable option for that village. Plans did not progress beyond unofficial talks.

Sigwalt said a casino could bring many benefits to Carpentersville.

“Other towns around us have basically used all of the creative ways to develop economically, so we have to be extremely creative,” she said. “There’s not many options left. This would be creative and a good revenue stream for the village.”

But bringing a tribal casino to Carpentersville would be a “very involved process,” said Gary Garrison, a public affairs specialist for the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs in Washington, D.C.

Garrison said the first step involves finding an out-of-state tribe to purchase the land, since there are no federally recognized tribes in Illinois and just three off-reservation casinos across the country, including one in Wisconsin.

Once a tribe purchases the land and places it in a trust, Garrison said, the governor must approve a gaming compact authorizing the tribe to operate a gaming venue. The deal must then seek approval of the U.S. Secretary of the Interior.

William Thompson, a professor of public administration at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, said a casino actually could hurt the village’s economy if the proposal moves forward.

Indian-owned casinos and resorts do not pay local, state or federal taxes.

“A casino is going to draw money out of the pockets of the local businesses,” said Thompson, who has studied the economic impact of casinos on communities in Illinois. “It is quite likely the casino will have restaurants and buffets. People are not going to walk across a parking lot and across the street to eat at a local restaurant.”

Village President Bill Sarto also questioned the rationale of opening a casino less than 10 miles from Elgin’s Grand Victoria, the most successful of the state’s nine licensed riverboat gaming sites.

“Why would the governor approve a casino that is in direct competition with a state-licensed riverboat just down the road?” Sarto said. “It makes no sense. It is not beneficial to the community.”

********************************************************

Judy doesn’t have any real plans for Carpentersville. Just look how she took control of the Parks Committee, she first favored the return of the Fourth Of  July Fireworks at Carpenter Park. Now she’s so concerned about our financial problems she and others decided to eliminate the HUGE costs of the fireworks. Yes, a whopping $7500!

Yes, Judy Sigwalt needs that $7500 to help pay off over 14 million dollars for the new Public Works Palace!

And now, apparently we don’t need any extra revenue from Video Poker machines.                                                   

Does Judy need a psychological exam? Does she just follow Paul Humpfer’s orders? The same guy who gave all sorts of excuses and LIES about a vehicle TITLE that took 2 years and 6 months to hand over to one of his victims?

Carpentersville’s Moral Compass?!?!

 

Village Board May, 2009

Why is it that Carpentersville’s Village Board continues it’s anti-business practices at the detriment to not only businesses that are trying to survive in these tough economic times, but to our taxpayers who’ll have to pay more in taxes for the grandiose plans of a multi-million dollar palace for Public Works employees.

The Village decided about four years ago to create a new paying position called Economic Development/Special Projects Coordinator. Has this position, which was to attract and help new businesses to move to Carpentersville helped any? So, now Carpentersville Village Board is creating another committee to do what? Attract more business? Help businesses to communicate with the Village Board? Cut red tape?

I’m sorry for being a skeptic, but  this Village Board and those in the past have done everything to stop businesses from either locating here in our village or to be competitive with surrounding communities. Besides, the empty storefronts and foreclosures are increasing.

Heres some examples of the hypocrisy of our, oh, so moral Village Board. For years we’ve had Village Presidents and Trustees who opposed the selling of liquor in the morning, even though some surrounding communities were selling at a much earlier time. This hurt local businesses, but our trustees wanted to play the “moral card.” During those dark days of the Boettger administration which Judy Sigwalt  was also a trustee, they decided to raise the sales tax. AND this was done after Judy Sigwalt was elected on a promise to not raise taxes.

During the Sarto administration with the help of Ed Ritter, the Village Board raised gas taxes, at the detriment of the Gas Stations in Carpentersville. Now many residents of Carpentersville would rather go to East Dundee or other communities where the gas is cheaper. I just hope Carpentersville’s BP Gas Station can survive against East Dundee’s Thorton Gas Station, just kiddie corner from it.

Also, during the Sarto administration, the Village had a great opportunity to have a new business located on the west side of town. The Hookah Lounge which is an absolute hit and nice revenue source for Schaumburg, wanted to open another Hookah Lounge in Carpentersville. With their great food, wi-fi stations for Internet  Service and with a very nice atmosphere for College students and young professionals to hang out. This was definitely going to be something new and exotic for people from Carpentersville and the surrounding communities to visit and spend their money. BUT, due to the influence of the Midwest Minutemen and others [Paul Humpfer and Judy Sigwalt] who had xenophobic attitudes about anything that hinted of Muslim and/or Arab cultures decided to STOP this revenue source that Carpentersville so sorely needs.

AND, now we have the Village Board and their “moral compass” attacking and trying to deny our Restaurants and Bars with liquor licenses an opportunity to compete with other businesses in the surrounding communities. I’m talking about “Video Poker Machines.” Once again at the detriment of local businesses and Carpentersville taxpayers, our Village Board had brought out their ”moral compass” and is trying to permanently BAN this revenue source. Will our local businesses suffer from competition across Carpentersville’s border with others? Could they fail?

Why in the heck is our Village Board in the “morality business” anyway? Do they think that they have been given a God given right to dictate morality to businesses and paying customers of said establishments? OR, do they think that THEY have the right  to gamble on the future of Carpentersville’s finances?

                                                 

This present Village Board has already skimmed 1.3 million dollars as a “poison pill” to place the new PALACE for our Public Works Building on the fast track. This same building is now already over a million dollars over-budget and we haven’t even dug a hole yet. The entire costs, including the poison pill will eventual cost the struggling families of Carpentersville more than 14 million dollars. Just watch as the costs start to climb as this Village Board, Bob Cole and Staff want to include all the bells and whistles to turn this new garage into a PALACE.

YES, our “tax and spenders” are in a rush to build a monument for Public Works employees, even if it means we have to raise taxes and fees to pay for it. YET, they shun new revenue sources that could help our fiscal deficits that we’ll be facing this year and next.

                                                     

We need to stop being a “moral compass” and attract new revenue sources. This Village Board and those in the past have shown that they wont think outside the box  in these tough economic times. Where is this Village Board going? Are they going to cut services to its residents? God forbid, if this Village Board or  Staff is going to cut Village employees. Nope, they’ll raise your taxes, fees and cut services. Oh wait they did make a crucial cut to save our finances, they eliminated our FOURTH  Of JULY FIREWORKS! BRAVO! You guys saved a whole $7500, whippie! Great job Parks Committee.

Tell you what, why don’t our Trustees and Village President give up their Carpentersville’s salary for only two months to show how patriotic they are and apply it to the Forth of July Fireworks? This would amount to over $7500, with extra cash for other activities around that time. This way Carpentersville’s families can go to Carpenters Park and enjoy our Independence  and way of life. BUT, I’m sure our Village President and Trustees can’t be asked to sacrifice their earnings for something so dear to all of us.

                                                    

Nope, this Village Board, with the help of Staff will ask the families and businesses of Carpentersville to sacrifice for the “tax and spend” policies. They after all have the “moral compass” and know what’s good for us, no matter what the financial pain the taxpayers and businesses have to endure.

Now if this Village Board would want to use their  “moral authority” to crack down on under-age smoking, I’ll go along.

Police hand over TITLE from Paul Humpfer!

O-MY-GOD!!!

Gloria Van Cleave has finally received her vehicle TITLE yesterday at around 3:20pm. The Secretary of State Police delivered said TITLE  from Paul Humpfer.

It’s too bad that Mrs. Van Cleave had to call the Illinois State Police to force the issue with Mr. Humpfer. This issue eventually fell to the office of the Secretary of State Police office.

The Court date of January 29, 2010 still stands though for Paul Humpfer.

What goes on in the cranium of Mr. Humpfer? Why did he allow all this drama to unfold?

Paul Humpfer’s New Book out!

He removes the “trust” from trustee.

 
  
At tonight’s Village Board Meeting, Gloria Van Cleave raised the topic of a Trustee on Carpentersville Village Board, who owed her a TITLE, during “public comment.”. She said how can anyone “trust” a Trustee, who has with-held a TITLE from her for over two years.
  
Mrs. Van Cleave did hand the Village Clerk a couple of copies of the “Bill of Sale” contract that Trustee Paul Humpfer signed on June 20, 2007.
  
As mentioned before https://carpentersvilleplayhouse.wordpress.com/2009/12/05/1888/ He has consistantly lied about the status of the TITLE.
  
Now he lies to the Illinois State Police and the Secretary of State Office. He told the Investigator from the State Police, that Gloria never attempted to call or get a hold of him concerning the TITLE. More LIES! Yes and he also told the investigator that there’s a 18 month “statue of limitations” on this crime he committed.
  
AND, we trust this creep who is Chairman of the Finance Committee? This guy can’t even straighten out his own finances, let alone trying to stall a senior citizen with excuses and LIES from knowing the “TRUTH” of said TITLE.

Does this guy need a mental evaluation?

 

 
 
 
The continued saga of Trustee and Chairman of the “Tax and Spend” Committee Paul Humpfer and his LIES about the vehicle TITLE.
  
As written before on this link: https://carpentersvilleplayhouse.wordpress.com/2009/10/27/paul-humpfer-going-back-to-court/ has come up with all types of excuses and LIES.
  
Now here’s the latest excuse from our public servant Paul Humpfer, who we entrust with the finances of Carpentersville. THERE’S A LIEN ON THE VEHICLE that he sold to Gloria Van Cleave! So, Mr. Humpfer knowingly lied to Mrs. Van Cleave about the vehicle TITLE for over TWO YEARS and several months. How did Gloria Van Cleave finally found out the truth about the TITLE? She had to go to the Illinois State Police and file a complaint against Paul Humpfer. Mr. Humpfer had no choice, but to tell the Illinois State Police the truth or face charges immediately. Of course, Paul Humpfer is facing a Court date on January 29, 2010 in Small Claims Court, but will probably face criminal charges soon for committing FRAUD. But, why, why, why, didn’t he tell Gloria Van Cleave the truth about said TITLE? Why did he insist on dragging this TITLE fiasco till January 29th, 2010? Does he in his right mind think that he’s the victim here?
  
Here’s a quick summary of what a lien is:
  
  
 
LIEN – The right to retain the lawful possession of the property of another until the owner fulfills a legal duty to the person holding the property, such as the payment of lawful charges for work done on the property. A mortgage is a common lien.

In its widest meaning this term includes every case in which real or personal property is charged with the payment of any debt or duty; every such charge being denominated a lien on the property. In a more limited sense it is defined to be a right of detaining the property of another until some claim be satisfied.

The right of lien generally arises by operation of law, but in some cases it is created by express contract.

There are two kinds of lien; particular and general. When a person claims a right to retain property, in respect of money or labor expended on such particular property, this is a particular lien.

Liens may arise in three ways:

1. By express contract;

2. From implied contract, as from general or particular usage of trade;

3. By legal relation between the parties, which may be created in three ways: 1. When the law casts an obligation on a party to do a particular act and in return for which, to secure him payment, it gives him such lien; common carriers and inn keepers are among this number; 2. When goods are delivered to a tradesman or any other, to expend his labor upon, he is entitled to detain those goods until he is remunerated for the labor which he so expends; 3. When goods have been saved from the perils of the sea, the salvor may detain them until his claim for salvage is satisfied; but in no other case has the finder of goods a lien.

 
 
Why did Paul Humpfer lie? Is he going to lie about his lies? When will he stop being so vindictive and vile to a senior citizen who just wanted to make a simple transaction? Is Paul Humpfer sane? What does go on in this guy’s head?
 
Is poor Paul Humpfer the real victim here? Does he think that it’s all everyone’s else’s fault?

Public Works Building, already over-budget?!?!

Even before Carpentersville digs a hole for Bob Cole’s Palace, it’s going over budget. How much? Well, nobody knows just yet, but at least $700,000 to $2,000,000. AND that’s before construction!
 
It really shouldn’t surprise anyone that Trustee Paul Humpfer, who also happens to be the Chairman of the “Tax and Spend” Committee is the champion of all this excess spending. Yep, he and the rest of the Village Board, who either promised in their campaign or were against this huge spending program during the Sarto administration as not being wise. BUT, now they have closed ranks and want to go on a over budget spending spree!
 
Mr. Humpfer said that he’ll go and find the Federal grants to help fund this extravagant palace for Bob Cole’s trucks and his deserving employees, yet he can’t find a vehicle TITLE for a vehicle he sold to a senior citizen over TWO YEARS ago! He’ll face a Judge on January 29, 2010 https://carpentersvilleplayhouse.wordpress.com/2009/10/31/trustee-humpfer-wants-trial/
 
Who can we trust on this Village Board? Those who lied and deceived the public, during their recent campaign in April? Those who backed those who ran on LIES? These politicians are just your run of the mill types, who lied to get elected.
 
they have committed themselves to raising taxes and fees, during a severe recession. Just wait until next year boys and girls, when our Village Board decides to raise Sewer and Water fees. That’s just going to be the beginning of years of tax increases and a decline in our “CASH RESERVES.”
 
The “tax and spenders” say they’re moving this Village forward! More like moving forward into fiscal insanity!
