Good for Beardstown but did Quinn have to wait until election time to hand out tax dollars, I think not but it can buy votes from the stupid.

It appears Quinn is smarter than Obama, at least Quinn has enough sense to order Ebola exposed people to stand a 21 day quarantine even if Obama won't stop travel between west Africa and America.

Wonder how much of our tax dollars Moe and Larry are going to hand out? They should bring Curly Madigan with them and we'll have the axis of evil all together.

And for a differing view...the largest public works project since the federal highway system...and they aren't sure why elementary kids improved but high schoolers didn't. Except they suspect it's because the younger teachers were attracted to the new elementary schools. http://newscenter.berkeley.edu/2012/08/14/la-unif...

Adams County has cash flow concerns

2 years, 7 months ago by Kevin Payne, WTAD News

State is $500,000 behind in payments to County

The Adams County Board had good and bad news on the money front at Tuesday's monthly meeting.

Cash flow for the county’s general fund is a concern, according to County Board Finance Chairman John Johnson, who reported to the full board Tuesday night on how late state payments are affecting the county.

 “We’re behind in revenues from them by about $500,000 because they are three or four months behind,” Johnson said. “Other lines such as sales taxes are down from what they were a year ago and that’s of concern because we thought the economy was picking up.” 

Johnson told the Board the Finance Committee is asking department heads and officeholders to "tighten our belts until things pick up and turn around." He added that he did not know when the overdue state revenues would be coming in to the county. 

Johnson also shared that an effort by Tri-Health, the county's health insurance agent for employees, is correcting prescription errors, which results in savings. 

“It’s an interaction between employees and a clinical pharmacist by email and by phone to correct errors [in using medications] that has already saved us about $8,000, as well as preventing potential hospitalizations and emergency room calls by up to $40,000.” 

The Board also approved a bid waiver for emergency work on the Bear Creek Bridge on County Highway 7 about four miles east of Meyer.

The board's next meeting has been rescheduled for Monday, April 9 at 7 p.m. due to Township caucuses on Tuesday, April 10.
