Let's just hope that certain people aren't involved. Like the mother of a little boy that was murdered last spring. Her name was all over the scanner this morning. That would be a sad little circle if she was somehow involved in this. She has a black car, and lives right where the car was stopped. hopefully we have come a little farther in life than that. Please.

Chicago no longer has the toughest gun laws in the country. Regarding handguns, they have the same laws as the rest of the state. That was part concealed carry law in 2013, eliminating "home rule" laws regarding handguns. It doesn't matter, though, because regardless of what gun laws are in place or not, it's still illegal to shoot people in almost all circumstances.

"Tree scape". A fiscal conservative would at least postpone an elective expense like this. Time to re-build cash reserves, then prioritize.
GuyFawkes10 - Senate takes rare Sunday votes, but real drama is GOP leaders\' rebuke of Cruz - Quincy, IL News - Q
One of he few that stands up for what he believes. I don't think any want to take him on head to head but hide behind the procedural rules. Senate is a joke with McConnell, no better than Reid. He lied to get re elected in his state so why would Senate be different?
pjohnf - McConnell Angers Conservatives By Blocking Defunding Planned Parenthood, Kate’s Law - Quincy,
Makes one wonder if McConnell is a republican or the new democrat Harry Reid? McConnell apparently supports the baby butchers, illegal alien criminals, crony capitalism through E/I bank and obstructive legislative leadership. In other words, nothing has changed in congress with the GOP in charge.

Total enrollment up 14% from 2013

With over 70 percent of colleges and universities across the nation reporting declining enrollment, Culver-Stockton’s incoming fall 2014 class is defying the odds. Not only did C-SC see an increase in enrollment, this year’s class was the largest incoming class since 1991.The College welcomed 380 new students for this class, with 259 freshmen. Total enrollment is estimated at 972, which marks a 14 percent increase from last year.

C-SC has seen increases in class sizes for the last several years, and overall retention is up seven percent. One of the most dramatic increases seen on campus is the rise in the number of students choosing to live on campus. Currently, 89 percent of incoming students will live on campus. To accommodate the increase in students living on campus, the College worked all summer constructing new living spaces out of underutilized locations on campus.

“We could not be more pleased about our record-setting enrollment this year,” said Dr. Kelly Thompson, president of C-SC. “Our growing student body also means growth in diversity and providing a broad spectrum of experiences is a valuable asset to our students.”

Another significant increase was seen in international student enrollment. Over 9 percent of this year’s class came from outside of the country, with the College welcoming 35 international students. Ten different countries are represented, including Australia, Korea, Argentina and Saudi Arabia. This was the largest-ever international cohort welcomed at the College.

“The fact that students from all over the world have chosen to attend Culver-Stockton speaks volumes,” said Misty McBee, director of admission. “Our international students enrich the overall student experience by adding different perspectives to the conversation. And our small student body and tight-knit community really help our international students adjust to the transition of living in a different country.”

The remaining 91 percent of the class hails from 26 other states, with half of the students coming from Missouri. Other highly represented states include Illinios (25 percent of the class), California and Michigan. The single most represented high school in this class was Quincy Senior High School, with 13 students enrolling from there. In addition, 26 students are legacies, having either a parent, sibling or grandparent who had attended C-SC.
