Many people just read the headlines. That's why I said "Up Front". The more significant point is not that this was a Native American family, but that he is another Mexican we brought in to work while we have high unemployment (and record low labor participation rate). Despite many being good people, many have no respect for our laws. We need to push some of the welfare people into these green…

In fact they have listed the names of the young people in the obituary section of the paper, they just don't put heroine or shotgun, or rope as the cause of death or list it specifically as a suicide... Word of mouth and social media is how we know who what when where and why... old people have killed themselves forever, we just don't list the cause of death out of deference to the family.

Let's ask President Trump what he would do. Is it just me or are there more Mexicans involved in killings now than there were? Yes, I know there are more pouring out of the ant hill south of our border, but it seems that we are getting more and more of their scum.

They used to publish in the newspaper (in an out of the way area) the results of a Coroner's Inquest Have not seen that done here in quite a while. I was also told years ago that if you use a Public entity, IE ambulance, fire department and/or police it is not confidential information but that does not mean the Media has an obligation to report..... An inquest is an inquiry held in public…

Rep. Tracy endorses Frese for House

Lt. Gov. candidate says she asked Frese to run

State Rep. Jil Tracy (R-Quincy) said today she asked Randy Frese to run for the seat she is vacating to run for Lt. Governor.

Tracy officially endoresed Frese this morning during a Quincy news conference. She appeared with Frese when he first announced for the office in November and said at that time. "I would not have decided to run for Lt. Governor on the Dillard-Tracy ticket f I wasn't confident that he was going to seek the office."

Today, she went into more detail.

"I asked Randy to run and he said he had to discuss it with his family," Tracy said. "When he said he would, I knew the district would be well represented."

Tracy's official endorsement comes as the Adams County GOP prepares to host its annual Lincoln/Reagan Luncheon on Sunday. 

Frese said he was humbled by Tracy's endorsement and hoped to continue "the tradition of constituent service Jil and those who have also represented West-Central Illinois in the Illinois House have provided."

Frese and Tracy were also making an appearance in Monmouth later Thursday morning. 

Frese is running in the March 18 primary against Marshall Schrader of Monmouth, who held a gathering in a southside Quincy home on Wednesday night. 

There is no Democrat running for the seat, although the party can fill the vacancy after the primary.
