And the PollyPeoria Golden Cockroach Award Goes To.... Chase Ingersoll (of course)


Chase Ingersoll has applied for a liquor license for the restaurant attached to the Grandview Hotel which he allegedly owns. As you probably know, the Grandview Hotel is now closed after it was declared -and numerous Judges concurred- a chronic nuisance.

Ingersoll has lost every court battle on the matter. Chase requested and was even granted a brand new Judge to hear his cause. The new Judge also found Ingersoll's claims/whining to be without merit. This makes four, maybe even five Judges who have basically told Chase Ingersoll he has no case.

The new tactic? Apply for a liquor license Ingersoll knows full well the City Council will never approve. Why? To launch yet another bogus, annoying lawsuit to consume City legal resources and time.

Village Idiot. No, an idiot would not be able to be so successful in sucking up the attention of Judges, lawyers, and media. It's sad that Ingersoll doesn't use his brains for something productive.

Ghandi? No, Ghandi was a real lawyer.

Jedi Warrior? In Chase's dreams, maybe.

Peoria's biggest, most annoying parasite? Yup.

Cockroaches are easier to get rid of than this guy.

H.L. Mencken said it best with his quote that "All government is evil, and trying to improve it is largely a waste of time." Good luck with your liquor license, Chase...and may God have mercy on the souls of our fighting men and women overseas...

Chase Ingersoll said...

Sorry Polly, but I'm still doin' more smiling than whinnin'. !-))))

Chase Ingersoll said...

Oh, I almost forgot......so does cockroach mean that I have moved up from worthless piece of shit?

From what I hear Chase, you go whining to Ray and Oliver every chance you get, beggin, for mercy.

Bill Dennis said...

So now he's a cockroach because he wants a liquor license? Polly, here's what is goign to happen. There will be a routine investigation. If Chase and the structure qualifies, there will be a recomendation from staff. The Liquor commission can vote any way it wants and so can the council. remember, that a denial of a liquor license to any establishment that otherwise qualifies can end up in court.

Will Chase qualify? I have no friggin' idea.

You will find members of the city council and city commissions who don't bade their decisions on law, but on politics.

When I was in seventh grade I saw Return of The Jedi. I can't tell you how much time I wasted in subsequent weeks trying to move things with my mind. You know, just in case the whole Jedi thing might be true.

Chase is as much a Jedi as I was. Trying to make things happen by sheer force of will. And judging by results, I'd say he's every bit as successful as I was.

The real issue, it seems to me, is the new development of Junction City property. The Journal Star reported a couple weeks ago that the whole area next to the Grandview is about to be redeveloped in a big way. If Ingersoll hangs on a little while...he just might have a valuable piece of property. Method in the madness?

pollypeoria said...

Oh, have no doubt, I believe Chase will likely make money off this deal. The savior who buying Junction City isn't going to want his investment and plans for a european market/art fair jepordized by a crummy No-Tell Motel. Watch for Jain and Ingersoll to fight more vehemently over who owns the property now.

The fact that the property has legally been declared a chronic nuisance (regardless of whether or not Ingersoll owns it) makes the validity of a liquor license moot.

I don't think Mannning has approved a liquor license yet for the Third District. I remember reading that the old Bee Grocery Market was going to be a liquor store until Manning heard about it. Council generally does not appove any liquor license the District Rep or surrounding neighborhood strongly opposes. Count on both to happen in this case.

A seven year old has a better chance of getting a license to sell crack on a corner than Ingersoll does at the restaurant attatched to the hotel.

Moreover, it seems that Ingersoll hasn't done much more than have Grandview Hotel cleaned - oh, and offer free coffee. No major renovations have taken place. I'm thinking Chase lacks the capital to do anything substantial. I doubt he has the means to open a bar/restaurant either.

I believe Chase is just looking for another opportunity to show off his lack of legal ability to another judge and the media. He also gets his jollies by sucking up City resources and time.

Clearly, Chase gets off being annoying. Why can't he just blog like the rest of us instead of punishing innocent taxpayers?

What I don't understand is Chase says he got rid of the addicts and alcoholics yet now wants to serve liquor. Hmmmmmm.

Gary Sandberg said...

anonymous,
Maybe everyone who drinks or is "served liquor" is NOT an alcoholic ! or an addict ! Hmmmmmmmmmmm.....

Chase Ingersoll said...

Hey, I'm just rolling withthe punches. I'd have been happy to put an AA Meeting in DISBAR, but since the City cleared out the people I was trying to help has made it perfectly clear that they are going to be hostile to to occupancy of the Grandview, by the poor, downtrodden, and/or recoverying from overindulgences, I really ahve no choice but to move toward the high end.

FYI, I fully expect the City to be political on this and deny the application, and that oh, about ayear from now, the Attrorney General will be filing a suit in Peoria County, on behalf of the State Liquor Commission and DISBAR to get approval for the site. But I just could not resist the fun and the smiles on the faces of the Springield State Liquor commissioners when they see DISBAS being DENIED a liquor license.

Or perhaps the City of Peoria can just pay me to go away???

Chase knows why this should be a no-no.

"Or perhaps the City of Peoria can just pay me to go away???"

Can we take up a collection?

Rob said...

Let's see, selling alcohol in a location that is supposedly in the process of being "cleaned up". Yeah, that makes sense. Maybe Sandberg could superimpose the footprint of a brain over his existing structure and do some research...........

Chase Ingersoll said...

Hey Polly: your Award for Class only has one comment. Very loney post. Can't I get the Golden Rat award also. Or Golden No Good Dirty Dog. Ya know it is the year of the dog.

Anonymous said...

Polly, are you new in town? Everyone KNOWS that Chase is parasite. Has been for years and years. When you give him "awards" like this or commentary, positive or negative, you give the roach what he wants... ATTENTION. Attention feeds the roach and it gets bigger and bigger and harder to exterminate.

Chase isn't trying to help anyone, especially the downtrodden. If he had the money to make the Grandview half way nice to attract guests he would have already.

Chase only has the means to run a dump and only folks who can afford a dump will stay there. No need to point out the obvious.

Duh, Polly.

Gary Sandberg: Maybe everyone who drinks or is "served liquor" is NOT an alcoholic ! or an addict!

Might very well be true, but I doubt you have any personal knowlege regarding that line of logic.

Vonster said...

FWIW - It would be only honest to note that alcohol is served at locations proximate to the Grandview such as the former VOP and American Pie, although I'll have to admit their patrons don't have to exist via a residential street.

Vonster said...

I meant "exit".

Anonymous said...

..all that aside, the fact remains that your a liar, a two faced wimp that ran off to CA when you knew the crap came down and I know for a FACT that your supposed "ownership" of this property will be ending very soon. Hence, the whole mess will be a "MOOT" point when your ass is out in the street where you belong right along with everyone else you've screwed in this deal! You get back what you put out Chase..

Chase Ingersoll said...

I'm Chase the cockroach, a pussy whipped liar, whose wife planned that trip for her sister's wedding, months before I bought the Grandview. A real man in your book would have said "Sorry baby, you pack yourslef with the 9month old and 2 and a half year old on the plane. I've got business to take care of."

But at least I don't have to be "anonymous" claiming that I know something for a FACT, without being able to actually cite any sources. You poor, angry, anonymous, little, blog commenter. Not even corageous enough to claim your real name and put yourself out there on a blog. Well let the Chaseter be the first to encourage you to crawl out of the darkness, claim your name and start living. Sure you'll take a backhand or two or three or four.....Peoria is just that kind of town. But at least you'll know you've lived and are man enough to take it as you dust yourself off and realize...it wasn't really that bad.

Anonymous said...

Gosh Chase, I don't know why someone would want to remain anonymous when commenting about you. It's not like you would do something horrid and vile by spreading malicious untruths of being a cross dresser, a drunk driver, a child molester, a racist, having an extra marital affair, etc. Why, you are just a paragon of maturity and good grace. I'm sure the whole town would agree... Oh, that's right, they wouldn't.

Cockroach is right. Someone call Orkin.

Chase Ingersoll said...

Mr Chasaracha, ate the Orkin bait, smacked his cockroach lips and asked for more.

Mmmmmmmm. Lick lick lick.

Ffffftttttssssss.

But strangely, that doesn't smell any worse than the rest of Peoria. Ah...Peoria is full of cockroaches. I hear that there are fewer up north. Like in Alaska.

Snarkelicious said...

Sometimes, when reading stuff written by guys like Chase, I feel like I'm looking at a sentence formed randomly using refrigerator word magnets. Alaska? WTF?

Anonymous said...

Chase Aren't you living further up north right now? Peoria get too hot for you??

Parkdale Tenants Association said...

So you don't mistake this with another group's award read Parkdale Tenants Association which is a group that copied this and the Lord of the Slums from an Oregon tenant group and is run by homeowners who use the tenants for personal profit.

Is this asshole still in Peoria? What a moron. I guess that's from being raised by a lesbian Mom. Not that there's anything wrong with lesbians, only the smegma breath reprobates they bear. WHAT A SCHMUCK.
