      The city, rockford construction, deBOSS, vananel, secchia and clans could give a rats Azzz about the West Side….they tear it down, brew it up, slum it up etc. West Side schools are junior penitentiaries. This city is a cesspool of demise and horror. Close union, west middle, harrison park, straight, etc………………….watch the neighborhood flourish and become what it once was…………..a decent place to live.
