The future of Baby Safe Haven law awareness is in the /hands of young people who will go out and tell their peers on all platforms of the media that young people listen to, watch, and read. The regions who have young advocates and spokespeople are the most successful in spreading the word about the laws, hotlines and info web sites among the 13 to 30 year old demographic. We have just started the…
UrKidsWillPay - Lovelace indicted in wife\'s death - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
"You don't get indicted on nothing." Tell that to Rick Perry or Tom Delay before him. Innocent people get indicted all the time...not that it applies in this situation or doesn't apply. We don't know the facts that were presented at the hearing and even if we knew what was presented, we don't have the benefit of those facts being challenged. The potential defendent and/or his…
HiDawnG - Abandoned baby calls to mind Safe Haven laws - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
I can't help but believe that if the mother who abandoned this little baby had known about the law, she wouldn't now be being tracked down by the police. The Baby Safe Haven law offers a safe, legal, option for a desperate parent in crisis. The law says a parent hand their unharmed baby, 30 days old or younger, to staff at a hospital, fire or police department. No questions asked. Thanks…
1950Brutus - Durbin makes fund-raising stop in Quincy - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Dick "Pee Wee" Durbin apparently doesn't see taxes as a problem - no mention of it in his statement. Maybe the problem of "jobs that don't pay enough money" would decrease if the taxes that come out of this pay are decreased.
EgoReputo - Hiding public records in Illinois now a Class 4 felony - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
"..... 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…

People's Prosperity Bank on Maine St. will host the IL Treasurer's program

Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford is encouraging Adams County residents to stop by his I-Cash table at Peoples Prosperity Bank’s location at 706 Maine Street on May 15, 2014. 

Treasurer Rutherford will not be in attendance, but staff will be available from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. to help anyone wishing to find out if the state is holding any of their money or unclaimed property. In fact, 169,179 owners in the four counties where the I-Cash events will be held have $36,530,780 in unclaimed property (Adams, Logan, Macon and Sangamon counties). This is according to the January list of unclaimed property holders. 

The rebranding of the I-Cash program has dramatically increased the number of searches and claims filed. In the first month after the launch of I-Cash, the number of web visits increased by 140 percent, and the number of claims increased by 322 percent as compared to the month prior.  

The treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division’s costs, including staff, computers and travel, are paid for through the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund, and not by tax dollars.

The Unclaimed Property Division has more than $1.8 billion in cash, plus contents from Illinois safe deposit boxes that have been inactive for at least five years. During 2013, the program returned more than $139 million in cash and other assets to their rightful owners, representing a 69 percent increase over 2010. Treasurer Rutherford took office in January 2011.

To find out if you have unclaimed property through I-Cash, you can visit the treasurer’s website at www.treasurer.il.gov and follow the I-Cash link. You can also contact the Unclaimed Property Division by calling

217-785-6998 or emailing info@Icash.Illinois.gov, although searches cannot be completed by telephone.
