Just about anything they do to #3 and #4 greens will be an improvement. #4 is much to sloped for the size of the green. While #3 is larger there aren't enough locations for good pin placements. There isn't a flat spot on the entire green. Also both greens are plenty large left to right but too small front to back. #3 fairway needs larger flat spot areas in the fairway also. I will look…

One can only hope the grand jury does the right thing based on the evidence they review. I fully believe that at some point Brown may have raised his hands...and then charged the officer. So if you marry all the accounts together including the injuries sustained you get a pretty clear picture of what happened that matches the witness accounts. They have quite a few now who say they saw the confrontation…

Where are the pictures of these injuries? The video of Michael Brown in the store shoplifiting cigars was released. Why not pictures of the officers injuries? This situation could be put to rest if he was as badly injured as this article claims.

When the Fed "investigation" wraps up these injuries may be attributed to the officer slipping on a bar of soap.

Randy Frese has been chosen as the Republican nominee for the 94th Illinois State Representative.

 Frese took 70% of the vote against Marshall Schrader of Monmouth. 

Frese says he is humbled by all of those who helped in the campaign. 

“Thank you to those who came to the fundraisers, who wrote checks, who allowed us to put signs in their yards, who walked and knocked on doors with us,” said Frese. “When it comes down to a night when you can celebrate a victory, it makes it all worthwhile.” 

Currently, there is no Democrat on the general election ballot. 

However, Frese says he will count on the fact that the Democrats will appoint someone to run. 

“We will continue on strongly with the campaign,” said Frese. We will generate some enthusiasm about getting some good conservative ideas and some common sense to Springfield.” 

The Representative seat was left vacant by Rep. Jil Tracy. Tracy ran alongside Kirk Dillard as Illinois Lt. Governor hopeful.

In the three way race for Adams County Clerk, Chuck Venvertloh won over County Board member Becky Weed and Quincy School Board member Scott Stone. 

Venvertloh won by 328 votes over Weed. 

 

Venvertloth took 41% of the vote, beating Becky Weed by 320 votes. Scott Stone took 22% of the vote.

 

Venvertloth said he will use his win's momentum moving forward. 

 

“We’ve got another one coming up here. Becky Weed and Scott Stone both ran a really hard race,” said Venvertloth. “I’m looking forward to them joining the team and making a really cohesive unit and looking ahead to a victory for the Republicans in the fall.” 

 

Venvertloth will go up against Democrat Jonathan Shoenakase on the November ballot.
