you must be prepared though, the police generally prefer "sheep" (skip to about min 3) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Irh04jsMNJ8 now in this Video everyone involved could of done certain things better, but its obvious the "Drill Sargent" wanted everyone to know who the big dog on the porch was.

I think we need a new word in the English language - "absurd" doesn't adequately describe this spin. Nancy would love these numbers - she would say more people are painting or writing - not wasting their time working to buy food.

Pathetic Quinn's spin is absurd, hopefully his days are numbered. Now all we need is Nancy Pelosi making a visit to either Chicago or Springfield...

I'm a little wonderous here...in the example case of the two-year-old the new pathologists claimed death from one of two unrelated causes. I would assume they were saying BOTH of those things occurred and the blow to the abdomen caused the lacerated liver and that they just couldn't be sure which one caused death first.

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

2 months, 1 week 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
