You can pay some now or you can pay MORE later. Kicking the can down the road is what got the jail in the shape it's in now. Kicking the can down the road Is what got the school buildings in that shape. Kicking the can down the road Is what got Illinois in the shape it is now. Someone needs to "suck it up and accept the fact that the problem needs to be fixed now, not down the road". We need…

There are plenty of white kids east of 18th, and plenty of them are little thieves, vandals and druggies. I don't see how it would matter in what part of town this happened or what color of skin the victim has.

It is clearly an opinion piece. I'm not bashing QJ for publishing this as news, I think there are people who will read this and take it as news, since it's posted on a news site (even though it's under the opinion page). Most people won't take the time to discern. I would honestly like to see a local journalist do some good solid research (investigative journalism) on this topic…

How did a response that I did not type end up in my post? Is this a new feature. I actually was defending you by making the point that it was not a news story. I hoped that Silence would have come to that conclusion after I asked question.

There are too many kids in our society in general being ignored, unsupervised, or otherwise neglected. Whether because of broken families, no father figures or other positive influences, working single parents who don't have the time (or don't make the time), being raised by grandparents who don't have the energy, etc., these kids are left to their own devices when it comes to school…

Illinois Senate advances ADM tax break bill, House fails to act

Bill not expected to be taken up till Spring session

From Reuters:

The Illinois Senate on Tuesday passed a bill that would offer incentives for Archer Daniels Midland Co to keep its global headquarters in Illinois.

ADM has been the dominant corporate presence in the central Illinois city of Decatur for 44 years. Its disclosure in September that it was seeking a new global headquarters shook Decatur and brought other cities, including Chicago, into a contest to land a new corporate nameplate.

The bill would provide tax benefits worth between $20 million and $25 million over the next 15 to 20 years. In exchange, ADM would locate its global headquarters in Chicago, moving 100 jobs there, while also adding 100 jobs a year in Decatur over 5 years.

"It facilitates job creation both in the City of Chicago and a downstate community," said State Sen. Andy Manar, a Democrat, who sponsored the bill. "Those are two areas of the state that typically get pitted against each other."

The Senate voted 39-14 during a one-day session of the state legislature that was called mainly to address pension reform in Illinois. It was not immediately known when the House may vote on the bill.

"Given that the House did not act, we will review our options," said ADM spokeswoman Jackie Anderson. "We expect to make an announcement soon."
