It's not tax abatement...it's a tax refund which is a financing tool. And there's lots more than what is listed on your link It's a rather long section of 65 ILCS 5/11-74 http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/ilcs4.asp?Ac...

The pill Hobart is wanting the city to take would be easier to swallow, if they were bringing American Family, AT&T, Motorola, or something like it to fill up this building with 300-400 Jobs. Sadly though projects like the one I just described or the Newcome Lofts will only come to this area with help from the City or County (not saying the city should give in to all of Hobarts demands) because the…

The TIF district does not include a Property Tax abatement. Those are features of the Enterprise Zone which this site is not a part of. Would like to know how we are going to force that one through against our rules.....not that I doubt they will do it. Take a look at the eligible TIF expenses and tell me where they are going to lie to us to classify 1.8 million of a 4 million project as TIF eligible.…

Could be or it could be for a burnout. which could be defined as unsafe because you lack complete traction. Or it could be for accelerating too fast but not buring the tires and without going over the speed limit. or she could have exited a private drive like the bowling alley without properly yielding.

Just remember that getting taxable property there doesn't bring in any extra $$ for the city. What it does is lower property taxes for the rest of us. Obviously more $$ back for more expensive properties (i.e. same % saved across the board). By the same token the TIF district raises our taxes until such time as the TIF expires. That's because some of the tax $$ are diverted to a special…

Lovelace indicted in death of first wife

1 month 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.
