Amen, pjohnf. I think you got that right. Didn't Hitlers Germany and Communist Russia do the same with their media? Can we do anything quick enough to correct these problems?

jnalse87-is a handgun enough to protect me from my government's military? Ask yourself how The Revolutionary War would have gone if we had only handguns against the British. You're obviously a restrictionist, as you believe the state knows best, and we shouldn't argue. Sounds a bit like North Korea, doesn't it?

I like Kelly's food and atmosphere, but I don't get the fascination everyone has with melted cheese.

Glad to hear that they are back open for business, and that everybody affected is going to be OK. (And yes, after reading this I'll admit I could go for several bowls of their cheese soup, heh heh heh.) If there is any tiny bit of a "silver lining" that can possibly come out of this unfortunate situation, I hope it's that QFD (and the members of the local news media) will take an opportunity…

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.
