Seems it is just being pointed out now, that what they used to call just some "man", is now being recognized as Mexican or Central American. They have deliberately hidden the costs of both legal and illegal immigration. Coulter has been pointing this out, and it is probably why Trump got so much attention. Their cartels run the border towns of Mexico, and much is pouring over here.

Shocking how many people don't seem to understand the concept of sarcasm.

Many people just read the headlines. That's why I said "Up Front". The more significant point is not that this was a Native American family, but that he is another Mexican we brought in to work while we have high unemployment (and record low labor participation rate). Despite many being good people, many have no respect for our laws. We need to push some of the welfare people into these green…

In fact they have listed the names of the young people in the obituary section of the paper, they just don't put heroine or shotgun, or rope as the cause of death or list it specifically as a suicide... Word of mouth and social media is how we know who what when where and why... old people have killed themselves forever, we just don't list the cause of death out of deference to the family.

Let's ask President Trump what he would do. Is it just me or are there more Mexicans involved in killings now than there were? Yes, I know there are more pouring out of the ant hill south of our border, but it seems that we are getting more and more of their scum.

48th Street project no longer in the Adams County Board's control

1 year ago by Denise Donley

Construction would be pushed back until 2016

The 48th Street re-stripping project continues to be “on hold.”

At Tuesday night’s Adams County Board meeting, Jim Frankenhoff, County Engineer, reported that the intersection agreement is now in the City of Quincy’s hand.

“There’s an agreement between the county and the city for the intersection. Right now, the county is fulfilling its part of it, which is done in regards to the roundabout. Since the city wants to alter and look at changes to the intersection, that will more or less be their choice,” said Frankenhoff. “They’re going to have to pay for those further studies or changes made. The county does not have any more financial obligations at this point until what we want to do with the intersection is resolved.

Frankenhoff said he asked the City to have some type of idea regarding changes by the end of August or beginning of September so the county can budget money if necessary.

Construction on the proposed project, if something is decided, would not begin until 2016.

The original plan with Klinger and Associates will be held for possible future use.

 

In other business, appropriation revisions to the budget were approved.

Contract negotiations have been approved by both parties, but John Heidbreder, a Finance committee member, said the board must not have gotten them yet.

Heidbreder also reported to the board that there were some minor concerns with a recent audit regarding federal or state grants.

“We supposedly don’t handle the accounting according to what they have in mind. We’re not going to get slapped on the wrists and we’ll take care of this minor problem.”

Heidbreder also said that for the past six and a half years, Adams County has had a .34% loss ratio for insurance claims.

“Department heads and office holders have been doing a marvelous job of cautioning their people not to do something stupid,” said Heidbreder.

The Finance committee is beginning to work on next year’s budget now. Members hope to have a proposed budget by the September meeting.

 

Regarding federal prisoners, the correct paperwork is completed and filed. Adams County Sheriff Brent Fischer is awaiting approval from higher authorities.

 

The following were also approved at Tuesday’s monthly meeting:

-Law enforcement mutual aid agreement, which is done every year. If a different county in Illinois needs help, we help and vice versa.

-Resolutions for a country bridge culvert in Honey Creek road district for over $7,000, $8,400 to pay for a culvert in the Mendon Road district and $9,600 to pay for a culvert in Ellington and Mendon road districts

-$73,685 was appropriated for the roadway profile for the railway crossing for pavement in the Camp Point road district

-Intergovernmental agreement to fund educational service region for area counties
