Only in Naperville - Homless have Netbooks?

So I'm over at the Starbucks on Ogden and Washington and the homeless guy that relocated has a fricken Netbook with internet connectivity and was managing his Facebook page lol I laughed my ass off when I saw it. Only in Naperville.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Yeah, I would always see him over by the parking garage, but did not know he had a laptop and a facebook page lol It still cracks me up.

Someone should tell him about CLSB lol Maybe we could put a couple CLSB stickers on his tarp.

Scott Huber... I've sat and talked with him on a number of occasions. The guy's got staying power and survival skills up the whazoo... I don't agree with his perception of reality but I do admire his stick-to-it'ness.

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....

Scott Huber may be homeless, but he's a celebrity of sorts in Naperville.

He poses for pictures. He ran for mayor. And he blogs.

But Huber's perennial presence in downtown Naperville may be in jeopardy. After getting numerous calls about Huber from residents, the city is looking into whether he is violating any codes with his "protest site" -- a gray tarp covering a rickshaw, a generator and various electronics.

For several years, Huber has lived on the streets, calling himself a protester and claiming he has repeatedly been denied his rights.

"I'm not the classic homeless person, sleeping on a park bench or underneath a bridge and wandering aimlessly through a community," Huber said. "I am here by choice under the 1st Amendment -- freedom of protest."

A Joliet native, Huber, 58, graduated from Joliet Junior College in 1971 with a degree in horticulture, according to the college. He said he later ran an electronic repair company in the western suburbs but was evicted from his office space.

Huber claims he was unable to pay the rent because his business collapsed after someone tampered with his mail while he stayed at the Kroehler Family YMCA. A YMCA spokeswoman confirmed Huber stayed at the facility but denied anyone tampered with his mail.

Seeking justice, Huber said he took to the streets in protest about a decade ago. He has been spotted along Illinois Highway 59 in Aurora, the downtown Naperville train station and his current location at 75 E. Chicago Ave. in downtown Naperville, near a Barnes & Noble store.

With his Santa Claus beard and weather-beaten face, Huber would appear to fit the profile of a homeless person. But his appearance has changed over the years. From 2004 to 2006, Huber had a neatly kept goatee, combed his hair, wore cologne and was "fairly well-dressed" while he sang tenor in the choir at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Lisle, said Barney Walker, the church music director.

Walker said Huber had "a decent voice" and could carry a tune, but is no longer welcome at the church after getting into a conflict with the church pastor and deacon. Huber claims he also has been banned from several local businesses for setting up his protest site on their property.
