Cory would never have taken her own life leaving her four children behind. She loved them dearly and as someone who knew her, I know she would not have done that. Period.

Make sure you understand what hearsay is. Hearsay is second hand not direct knowledge. If I tell you I am gong to kill you, you have direct knowledge and can testify to that. If I tell you I am going to kill you and you tell your neighbor I said I was going to kill you, your neighbor doesn't have direct knowledge. He has hearsay. Whether or not that would be admissable in court, depends on…

Amtrak Quincy-to-Chicago ridership up 4 percent

More than 265,000 passengers took the Illinois Zephyr and Carl Sandburg

From sj-r.com:

Extra equipment can’t come soon enough for Amtrak if Illinois passenger trends reported Wednesday continue.

The carrier reported more than 675,000 passengers rode Lincoln Service trains between Chicago and St. Louis in the federal fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, an 11 percent increase and a record for the route.

Passenger numbers also increased on the Chicago-Carbondale and Chicago-Quincy lines.

Amtrak ridership in Illinois for federal fiscal year ended Sept. 30 and percentage increase from prior year:

* Lincoln Service, Chicago-St. Louis: 675,295; 11 percent

* Illini & Saluki, Chicago-Carbondale: 374,268; 5 percent

* Illinois Zephyr & Carl Sandburg, Chicago-Quincy: 265,307; 4 percent

* Texas Eagle, San Antonio, Texas-Chicago: 337,973; 12.8 percent

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said growth has been accommodated up to now by refurbishing old passenger cars and returning them to service, but that no more are available.

“We do not have the capacity in the current fleet to grow ridership dramatically,” said Magliari.

New equipment is on order, including additional engines and passenger cars, but delivery is not expected for at least two years.
