"..... 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.

Hiding public records in Illinois now a Class 4 felony

New lighting will be installed at the Oakley Lindsay Center next month

6 months, 1 week ago by Jim Dewey

Cost will be around $72,000

During the February monthly meeting of the Oakley Lindsay Center Board -
Executive Director Rob Ebbing reported that lighting upgrades in the
McClain/Kent expo hall are moving forward.

After conducting a lighting study it was determined that existing lighting
fixtures can be replaced one for one with LED light fixtures which can be
controlled individually or by groups wirelessly.

Partial funding for the project is coming from 2 grants which Ebbing
initially expected would pay for about half of the expected $100 thousand
cost.

But the low bid from Springfield Electric came in at $72,424.56.

The Civic Center's share of the cost, about $16 thousand, will come from the
bond budget.

In addition to saving about 60 percent on electricity in the Expo Hall -
Ebbing says the lighting will also save labor.

With the current lighting, anytime a customer wants lights to be brighter or
dimmer, someone has to use a cherry picker and physically unplug or re-plug
the lights.

With the new lighting, that can be done from a computer, I-Pad or smart
phone.
