The only people resenting the police are those who are too ignorant to know what the police actually do.

A few years ago, a van was stopped for the "low-hanging fruit" of having the license plate bulb burned out. It was a routine stop that resulted in the seizure of over 500lbs of marijuana. What you deem as "accidental" is not as random as you think. It's a numbers game, and as much as you want to complain about it (a lot, apparently), it's been proven legal at every level of court system…

I'm not sure what your point was in re-posting the blotter, other than you like to see comments with your name at the top. Seat belt enforcement is just picking low-hanging fruit. Violators are usually tame and compliant and usually pay their fines: hence, easy revenue stream for the gubmint. The fact that they accidentally round up a real criminal once in awhile just helps people ignore away…
migraine_in_qcy - Survey says: GREDF, City of Quincy and Adams County get some answers - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJourn
That's all fine and dandy, but what is GREDF doing to try and improve the business climate in Illinois? Is GREDF openly supporting political candidates that are low-tax and pro-business? Is GREDF lobbying or helping fund lobbyists at the state level to promote pro-business laws? It's great to talk about retention, but when Illinois is doing everything it can to stifle business growth, surveys…

STEP is a waste of taxpayer money. We are spending 7 million or so already to catch all the bad guys. The State of Illinois is broke. It is ridiculous to add another layer of law enforcement on top of what we already have. I intend to tell all my reps. to quit wasting my money on more enforcement. Enough is enough. These petty tickets are just sucking money out of the local economy and causing more…

Westview undergoing renovations, becoming more environmentally friendly

4 weeks ago by 0

Holes 3 and 4 will be under construction at Westview Golf Course, starting September 2.  Work to renovate the green on Hole 4 and different areas throughout Hole 3 should be completed by Memorial Day 2015, depending on weather. 

Beginning September 2, the course layout for Holes 1 through 18 and 19 through 27 will be adjusted.  Holes 3 and 4 will be closed, with Holes 21 and 20 taking their place respectively.  The Third Nine will include seven playable holes while the work is completed. 

Westview has also taken a proactive approach to becoming environmentally friendly.  In 2011, the staff enrolled in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses. 

Audubon’s mission is to provide a better quality of life for patrons and wildlife through environmental planning, reduction in chemical applications, water conservation, creating wildlife habitat and educating the public. 

“We’re aiming for a golf course that is attractive to both golfers and wildlife,” Golf Course Superintendent Rick Miles said. 

He envisions golfers enjoying the beauty of the golf course along with creating a natural balance with wildlife and maintenance practices.  One project staff is excited about is the wildflower gardens between the fairways on Holes 1 and 10. 

“Positive feedback from the golfing community who enjoyed the wildflowers while playing, or just the visual impact from the clubhouse grounds is very rewarding,” Miles said. 

The staff added an additional wildflower garden on the Third Nine, enhancing wildlife habitat and providing a beautiful array of blooming flowers throughout the growing season. 

Westview’s goal is to become certified through the Audubon Program, and educate the public that they care about the environment and the people who use the course throughout the year.
