370-400 bushels per acre? National average is supposed to be a record at 172, but are they making 370 even in the irrigated bottom ground? We had lotsa rain and a lot of double ears filled out ... but the average is only 10 bushels higher. Of course most of those extra bushels are probably sold at $3, and they are looking at under $3 next year. Most farmers already made a lot of purchases with…

Ellington is concrete, doesn't seem "temporary". If the roof is an issue, put some pretty metal gabled roofs over the thing. HVAC is the issue? ... how can it be more for new units than a new building with new HVAC? They could even add a new building behind the old(er) building. The best sales point to me is in attracting industry to the area, which wants to attract individuals, who want good…

Lovelace indicted in death of first wife

1 month, 3 weeks ago by Bob Gough

Cory Lovelace died in 2006; Former Adams Co. Assistant State's Attorney and Quincy School Board member taken into custody Wednesday

An Adams County Grand Jury has issued an Indictment today for Curtis T. Lovelace for the charge of First Degree Murder, with bond set at $5,000,000. 

The charge stems from the 2006 death of his then wife, 38 year old Cory D. Lovelace, who was found dead in their home on February 14, 2006. 

Lovelace, 45, was taken into custody without incident at around 12:15 p.m. Wednesday in the 600 block of Vermont.

After months of investigation, the case was presented to the Grand Jury Wednesday morning resulting in the Indictment. 

Quincy Police Chief Rob Copley said the investigation into Cory Lovelace's death was reopened in 2013 after the department received new information. The previous autopsy and inquest ruled the cause of death was inconclsive. Copley said those results were reviewed by other pathologists who have now determined Cory Lovelace's death was a homicide.

Cory Lovelace's body was cremated following her death. 

Ed Parkinson of the State Appellate Prosecutor’s Service was appointed as special prosecutor in the case.

Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard said there were two reasons for requesting the special prosecutor.

"Number one, (Lovelace) is a former employee of this office and, number two, there is a very real possiblity I will be called as a witness in this case," Barnard said. 

Lovelace is a captain in the Illinois National Guard Judge Advocate Corps. He is a former Adams County Assistant State's Attorney and a former member of the Quincy School Board. He is also a former All-Big Ten center on the University of Illinois football team. 

Adams County Sheriff Brent Fischer says Lovelace has been moved to another facility. Fischer said there is not a place to isolate him in the Adams County Jail and with Lovelace being a former prosecutor he did not want him in with the general population.

The Quincy Police Department issued details of the arrest.
