Can't do a sunset provision? It's a referendum...unless Illinois has specific language requirements for sales tax (which I can't seem to find) you can put anything you want on a referendum. After the referendum passes they create an ordinance...and the idea that somebody would sue that you can't put a sunset provision in an ordinance sounds pretty ludicrous to me. A self-restricting…

There's also 7.6 million Illinois residents that aren't being represented by little Dickie Durbin. Yes the majority rules in our republic but that doesn't mean the minority shouldn't be represented and their rights protected. Durbin is a typical liberal democrat who believes that the socialist agenda comes above all things. The Herald Rag endorsed Durbin because he brings home…

A word of advice. Always get plenty of sleep before coming into contact with Kevin Taute. He may look at your eyes and be so bold, not only as to accuse you of having consumed marijuana, but then additionally suggest you're growing it in a planter pot to distribute as well. What a tool! If only we could all aspire to such douchebaggery.

This is an honest question. Regarding lack of poor judgement during 'protocol'. Of course, what the hell does he care. The gentleman made over 90K in 2010, so likely, reasonably more now. "To serve and collect". Where are good officers these days?

I mean I know this must be a parody past because surely you know that an LLC is not a corporation. And in almost all cases the members of an LLC are liable to the extent of their money invested in the LLC. B y the way, LLC stands for Limited Liability Company, not corporation. I am sure…

The Joe Bonansinga Community Service Award is awarded annually by the United Way of Adams County and the Quincy Rotary Club

The 2014 Joe Bonansinga Community Service Award was presented Tuesday afternoon to Michael Klingner - President of Klingner and Associates by the United Way of Adams County and the Quincy Rotary Club. In accepting the award Klingner - deflected the honor to the community of Quincy which he noted has a history of community service dating back to its sheltering of Mormons and its history as a major stop on the Underground Railroad up to more recent events such as the floods of 1993 and 2008 where Quincy became a hub of sandbag filling activity for the surrounding area. 

Klingner said he is "very proud of the things that we've accomplished as a community through history and certainly more recently." "it's humbling to receive this kind of award," he said, "because so many people deserve it." 

Klingner, whose business takes him to a number of communities across the Midwest said there is something about any community that says a lot for that community. "You can kind of tell by the people that are in the community, the kind of support that they have and just the upbeat feeling."  Klingner said that Quincy always conveyed that feeling, "that people are proud of the community.

Klingner was recognized for his leadership roles in causes that span healthcare, financial stability, youth development, business development, environmental sustainability, Quincy historic preservation efforts, church and recreation.

Joe Bonansinga, for whom the honor is named, was presented with the first award in 1998.
