And you Mr. WarSnivel. DO realize that the QSD and the City are both public institutions subject to voter control and funding by taxpayers. Right? And you DO realized that the QSD will still be spending considerable money to maintain QHS and QJHS, which are not going to be replaced under the current “Building for Quincy” sham. And you DO realize that even new buildings require general maintenance.…

School Board only spends $66,000,000 if the referendum doesn't pass. $105,000,000 if it does pass. That's not close to the same thing.
pjohnf - IHSA to skip hearing after being denied chance to speak - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
I agree the IHSA should be open and transparent but to hold a hearing on the group in question and they aren't allowed to express their side of story seems heavy handed and one sided. I hate saying this but pass a law making the IHSA subject to the Open Records law and then the government should butt out.

Exact locations in Chicago area haven't been revealed

From foxnews.com:

Fox News has learned that 748 unaccompanied minors have been transferred from areas near the border to the Chicago area. Of the original group of 748 kids, 319 have been placed with family members or sponsors while they await an immigration hearing. The other 429 have been placed in facilities run by the Heartland Alliance, a nonprofit organization that receives grants from the Department of Health and Human Services. 

Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., told Fox News Friday that he did not know the exact locations of the facilities where the children were being kept, and stated his belief that the White House did not want the children's living conditions to be made public. 

"My worry is the administration doesn’t want people to know what the condition of these place are or how these kids are being treated in detention," Kirk said. "Kids can sometimes to be pretty cruel to each other, they don’t want those stories to get out and they don’t want us to know what is going on in these detention facilities. These detention facilities should be completely open to the press and to the American people so that we know how what conditions are, we should be able to talk to the kids who are there.  

"I can’t explain the incompetence of the Obama administration," Kirk said later. "This is a tremendous self-inflicted political wound ... This narrative, [that] this is Obama’s Katrina, [is] sticking really hard."
