Not really directed at you....probably should have made it a separate post. I'll take an explanation of the aggregate or the budget mismatch from anyone :-)

I only need to do one thing to get ready for 8 more years of Clintons. Buy a new oven - I am no longer nimble enough to get my head in the one I have now. But I agree that I don't want Christy on the ticket either.

Good to hear. Talk about a waste of space, Mann needed to go. Maybe a couple others on that list will be voted off.
qfingers - JWCC proposes levy increase - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
This is a 3.46% increase in the levy. Given they had a $600,000 decrease in the budget...and a 6.8% increase in tuition and fees...and a 4% projected decrease in hours (the increase in tuition should make up for this plus paying instructors less)....I don't quite see how the levy increases...can't seem to find the JWCC budget

Armed Robbers at Large in Quincy

Broke Into Home at 9th & Locust; Considered Dangerous

Two armed men are at large, and wanted in connection with a break-in at a home near 9th and Locust Monday morning.

Quincy police had conducted a manhunt at the Illinois Veterans Home for the men, cordoning off a wooded area at the Home and calling in a Special Response Team.

According to Deputy Chief Doug Vandermaiden, police called off their search at the Vets Home early this afternoon after the suspects got away from the Vets Home. 

The suspects are described as being between 18 and 22 years old. One is white, and police aren't certain of the other suspect's race. The white male has very short hair, the other man has dark curly hair. 

The men may be armed with a hand gun, and are considered dangerous.

Vandermaiden adds residents near the Veterans Home should feel comfortable going back home, but to still be cautious.

Earlier Story:

Just after 10:00 A.M. Monday morning, Quincy police officers responded to a robbery call in the area of 9th and Locust. 

Police officers currently have blocked off a wooded area within the grounds of the Illinois Veteran's Home. 

Police are looking for two men who may be carrying firearms. 

The QPD asks that you stay away from the area until the premises have been cleared. If you live in the area, you should use caution until the scene has been cleared. If you remain at home, it is recommended that you go inside and lock your doors. 

You're asked to call the police if you see anyone suspicious and not attempt contact.
