I will worked there when I was in High School. That was back in 2000-2001. I loved that job, the staff that I had to deal with were very nice and I enjoyed working there. I live in Delaware now and we do not even have a LJS. RIP LJS of Quincy. You will be missed.

But this was selective enforcement. Shouldn't we be arresting everyone for every violation in every crack and crevice of the city, county, and state. No matter the cost.

Maybe they should try letting people, business's and organizations know about the survey. As a 25 year old business I have received nothing regarding GREDF but that's not unusual.

How your representatives in Congress voted on the debt ceiling

11 months ago by Bob Gough

Five of the six U.S. Senators representing Missouri, Illinois and Iowa voted to end the partial government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Illinois), Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri), Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) and Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) all voted to raise the debt ceiling. 

From U.S. Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois - 

"Today Congress put country over party.  I was proud to be a part of the bipartisan group led by Sens. Susan Collins and Joe Manchin, which laid the foundation for this agreement to reopen our government and protect America's full faith and credit. As the debate moves forward in the coming weeks over spending and debt, it is my hope both parties will continue working together on a 'big deal' with spending cuts and reforms to entitlements and the tax code so that we can give our markets and the American people the stability they need and deserve." 

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) voted no.

Congressman Aaron Schock (R-Illinois) and Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-Illinois) voted to raise the debt ceiling. 

Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa), Congressman Sam Graves (R-Missouri), Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-Missouri) and Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Missouri) voted no.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) also voted to raise the debt ceiling and blamed House conservatives for the failure.

“It’s been about 30 people that make their money on not hanging with the team. And so that’s on them,” he said.
