No, really all I was saying is 1% sounded very reasonable. I didn't talk politics other than to ask what the no votes were based on and BG gave an answer. I think you and tdown are wanting to argue. I just want to understand, be realistic and express my pleasure that there wasn't a 5% increase

Ok, your income is increasing but not your employees. Then its your employees that may want to reconsider their career choice. All I was trying to say is anyone would desire to have their income increase and must everyones income does increase by more than 1% a year, that's just a fact unless you aren't a dedicated worker or you're a deadbeat, or in jail etc.

I think he knows that. There was a point being made.

When you ask the question, "How could anyone complain?" (and also "1%?"), you are definitely arguing on behalf of the contract that was approved. Those rose-colored glasses that you wear when it comes to City politics aren't all that becoming. Is your last name Grussenmeyer? Reis? Goehl? Holtschlag? I am sure you are in the family tree somewhere....

WB6 votes against expansion; football merger in doubt

WB6 votes against expansion; football merger in doubt

5 months, 2 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.
