"..... This law should be of special concern to public officials who are in charge of producing and maintaining public records. Clerks, recorders, finance workers, comptrollers and Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA officers are some of the primary caretakers of public records and public records requests." This new law should spell big trouble for the Quincy School District. Anybody know what's…

You don't get indicted on nothing. There must be some pretty strong evidence. As far as him not being put out of general population is a bunch of crap. He shouldn't get special treatment just cause he worked in states attorney office at one time. He is being held for criminal charges and some pretty serious ones at that. The court systems are corrupt anyways.

WB6 votes against expansion; football merger in doubt

WB6 votes against expansion; football merger in doubt

9 months, 3 weeks ago From qconline.com

From From qconline.com:

Agreeing such a move would not be a good fit, Western Big 6 Conference officials earlier this week voted against an all-sports merger with the Peoria-based Mid-State 6 Conference.

Rock Island principal and Big 6 president Tim Wernentin confirmed on Thursday morning the conference will move forward with its current membership. Wernentin would not reveal the final voting total, but did say "it was a majority, not unanimous." League bylaws state such an action requires two-thirds majority.

Based on that, at least four schools were against expansion.

"Simply put, some of our schools felt that we could be at a competitive disadvantage at some areas," Wernentin said. "It has nothing to do with anything negative from the Peoria schools at all."

Closing the door on expansion will significantly impact the football-only agreement between the two leagues. Within the last year, they formed the Mid-West 10 Football Conference with the goal it would start this fall. However, there was no league this year since Peoria Manual could not break its contract with Eureka for the regular-season finale. Moline played Chicago Marist that week.

The football arrangement was created with the understanding the two leagues would talk about expanding in all sports. With expansion not happening, the football scheduling may not continue.
