Quit Complaining


People living around Cottage Healthcare Systems near Oak Park complain about helicopter noise because of the new helipad on top of the new building. It is so disturbing they feel they are living in a war zone. Sadly, their quality of life is inconsequential to CHS and, simply put, they chose to live in the wrong place and the system doesn’t like complaints. To quote a response to a recently published comment on this: “well…just move!” It’s just that simple – please get out of here because you expect too much from the community.

What happened to the lovely St. Francis hospital? CHS bought the property and built housing for some of their staff, while becoming a real estate agent for the rest.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has decided that corporations are relevant individuals. If this is so and we believe in survival of the fittest, people are obsolete. Get lost! Quit complaining! Move!
