Just Delivered: 5 Port-O-Potties Under CL South Bleachers

5 New port-o-potties were placed on Friday, Aug. 30, under the new bleachers at Crystal Lake South High School.
5 New port-o-potties were placed on Friday, Aug. 30, under the new bleachers at Crystal Lake South High School.

Work continued Friday morning on the new $1.18 bleachers at Crystal Lake South High School, 1200 S. McHenry Ave., Crystal Lake.

The Crystal Lake South Gators have a football game scheduled for 7:15 p.m. tonight against Marian Central.

Several people were working on installing a satellite dish atop the new press box, and hanging a "South Gators" sign on the outside of the box - the side that faces the backyards of adjoining homes and is visible from Amberwood Drive. 

To add more injury to insult for the neighbors not happy with the new 51-foot-tall structure that is three times the width of its predecessor:  Five new port-o-potties were placed Friday morning under the new Home bleachers.

The purple, portable restroom are directly behind the neighbors' yards - the same neighbors who have filed a lawsuit against Community High School District 155 in the dispute over the bleachers.

Stephanie give it up. You are not a reporter. Just a whiner! The district should sue you for slander. I'm sure they did not put them there to insult the neighbors. Maybe the should put them in the sun so it gets nice and ripe for the neighbors? Then you can have another article to complain in. I guess this brings new meaning to GO GATORS!!!!! HAHAHAHA

Mike. Just to be clear...I don't live near these bleachers nor did I know these homeowners before this story started. I'm just reporting the story as it plays out. ABC Chicago Channel 7 News just stopped by, too, and interviewed the homeowners so I guess I'm not the only "whiner." Their report is supposed to air at 6 p.m. tonight if you want to watch it.

Looks like the District Officials who created this fiasco now have 5 convenient locations to place their careers after the order is given to remove this illegal monstrosity.
