The tone of both your posts on this topic indicate a disdain for the unequal distribution of federal taxes paid back to the States that paid them. I feel many on this site share that feeling. But by not mentioning the other, more personal disparity of the Government's virtual seizure of working people's earned income through taxation and subsequent distribution to non-workers, non-earners,…

I don't believe employees are allowed to have/use cellphones in the courtrooms. That's where they're not allowed. I've been in a lot of the other offices - with my phone - that are in the courthouse. The restriction is specifically for the disturbance that you KNOW would be caused in courtrooms. And that's not even talking about people that would try and be a-holes recording…

Videoing Quinn is hardly a crime and I thought politicians wanted transparency. If Quinn can't speak and have his remarks taped , maybe he has something to hide.
pjohnf - Too many governments? Downstate has the biggest share - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Us down staters like local control and certainly don't want the state to control any of our taxing bodies. We may have too many tax bodies but it gives us local control which is good thing. Centralization is a bad thing as shown by the Obama government and the Quinn/Madigan cabal which are out of control. The corrupt Chicago thug democrats have virtually destroyed Illinois and we in down state…

City of Quincy to get federal disaster relief for flooding

2 months, 2 weeks ago From WTAD News

The federal dollars will be spent on hazard mitigation to raise the waste water equipment above the 500-year flood stage

The city of Quincy will get federal disaster relief for its sewer water treatment plant damaged during 2013 flooding.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security awarded $1.2 million for the repairs.

The federal dollars will be spent on hazard mitigation to raise the waste water equipment above the 500-year flood stage, Quincy director of utilities Jeffrey Conte said.

The contract for the work on the plant is about $4.3 million. The remainder of the money for the project will come from the city's insurance.

The city is on the hook for a $500,000 deductible that will come out of the city's financial reserve funds.

Flood waters got inside the facility and damaged electrical panels during heavy spring 2013 storms.

@davidalavender Wrong question. Impetus for Hamas terrorism? They believe that Israel/Jews should cease to exist.

@davidalavender Hamas targets civilians and uses Palestinians as human shields. They also fire rockets from civilian areas.
