ONCEMORE1 - Votes for Republicans switched to Democrats in Moline - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
This goes well beyond the "hanging chad" debacle, this is a deliberate effort to weight the results in favor of the Democrats. The size of the target on a touchscreen is easily manipulated so that if the D spot is half or most of the screen and the R spot is a tiny area of the actual "sweet spot", the results are controlled by the administrator and not the voter-------who just "happens" to be…
ONCEMORE1 - Mid-America Port Authority pledged $1.3 million from Illinois - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
If there was a chance in Hell your Third-Party candidate might actually win, I'd be right there with you, but you have to face the fact there ISN"T. Why is it that the typical Third Party frontrunner, usually Libertarian, shares many ideals with the Republican Party, siphons votes away from the Republicans and even receives support from the DNC and Unions to do so? The folly in…
qfingers - Business owners split over minimum wage votes - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Jarosch above inadvertently elucidated the reason why minimum wage is BAD. He says people would leave his store to work somewhere with higher wage....but when everybody pays minimum wage there are no other high-paying jobs. If you get rid of minimum wage businesses would pay what people are willing to work for and wages would vary...some up...some down...and overall employment would increase.

Who wants to be a part of anything negative? That's exactly why people don't care about who is elected. Because no matter who is in charge, people will bash them on here, on Fox News, on MSNBC and everywhere else. The worst thing that can happen to the average voter is to hear nothing but a one sided opinion.

Your "take a picture' idea isn't bad...except all the voting authorities would want lots of $$ to implement it. Though we might be getting close to having a website (like Facebook) who's already doing facial recognition and could offer a "recognize" function that you could put in surrounding zip codes or such and look for a match.

Coroner is looking for help to identify Jane Doe

Human remains have been found at the scene of Sunday night's fire at Salvage Lumber.

Quincy Fire Chief Joe Henning held a news conference to make the announcement Monday afternoon. Investigators from the State Fire Marshall's office were expected to arrive in Quincy later in the day.

The five-alarm fire happened at 8:20 p.m. at 219 Oak Street. The majority of emergency personnel had left the scene by midnight, but one crew remained on to guard against "hot spots."

Henning said he was notified around 11 a.m. Monday morning that upon routine investigation, remains were found on the north side of the structure in what appeared to be a storage room.

"There was no reason to expect whatsoever that there'd be remains inside," he said.

Henning said the fire investigation has been stalled until more investigators can get on the scene, and he said to speculate on anything else was premature.

Adams County Coroner Jim Keller said the body is that of a woman. A post-mortem examination will be held on Tuesday to try and determine more information including possibly how long the body had been at the scene.

Keller said contact Quincy Police if anyone has any information about any missing women in the area.
