And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

But if everything is already under construction, there is nothing that can be done. I have been involved with a lot of bid projects and there are always cost overruns. In fact, the contractors live for the over runs as it is how they make extra money. The words will be "change orders" and everyone will just have to bend over. I stick with my original post above, this project, if passed, will go…

If this was a responsible persons car it would of not got this bad, they would of took care of these issues as they came along, rather than waiting to dump 3 grand in at one time. But just for the sake of argument It sounds like this car has about 200,000 miles on it and its probably worth about $800, because cars don't hold their value especially when they are ragged out. So yea this is a no…

I've seen a couple of "studies" that supposedly try to show facilities matter. Totally unconvincing. Do you have a reference for something that shows the school building really matters? I can believe that facilities impact teachers more than students. Maybe if they maintained the buildings they wouldn't be so bad. And the ratings you quote are based on performance....not facilities.…

Rauner, running mate differ on social issues

Evelyn Sanguinetti said she disagreed with the gubernatorial candidate on the issue of life and of gay marriage

GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner introduced his running mate, Wheaton City Councilwoman Evelyn Sanguinetti, to patrons at the newly rebuilt Sprout's Inn during a heavy lunchtime crowd on Wednesday.

Rauner announced Sanguinetti's selection Tuesday morning and then took her on a statewide fly-around lasting Wednesday and Thursday.

The two spoke to the local media after shaking hands with the lunch crowd.

After their campaign platform discussion regarding Illinois' sad financial condition, the duo was asked about social issues.

Rauner said he wanted to put gay marriage on a referendum before the voters and said he supported a woman's "ability to choose...I believe in some common sense regulations and restrictions so it's rare and safe, but I support a woman's ability to decide."

Sanguinetti, however, differed with the top of the ticket.

"On the issue of life...I must say, my mother chose me and she had me at age15," she said. "For this reason, I am pro-life. I also believe in marriage with the traditional defintion."

Sanguinetti added that while she and Rauner "are apart on social issues", they both recognize that Illinois is broken in many other ways.

Regarding ADM's request for $20 million in tax breaks to keep its corporate headquarters and the 150 employees that go with it in Illinois, more than likely moving from Decatur to Chicago, Rauner said the climate must be changed and improve and the state should "move away" from special deals for business.
