8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

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.
