At the very least, deal with the parasite that is recycling. Its a complete money pit, costing the city more money to dump recycle than it is to just take that waste and put it in a landfill...not to mention, it puts more trucks in service, costing more to maintain, and more guys to use those trucks...AND IT DOESN'T COLLECT ANY REVENUE FOR THE CITY! Either charge people to recycle, or get rid…

Before going with the new trucks version, offer the private company a six year (instead of ten) deal, at a 15% discount from their current price. If the council votes that they would approve that, the company might jump at it. (no idea if they are legit, or union, or what) What does Mrs. Hackamack suggest? Does the "old guard" have a better idea, that isn't just about protecting city workers?…

"former Adams County Assistant State's Attorney and a former member of the Quincy School Board" WOW ... so they draw the line at murder? The protected elite class can't really get away with anything and everything? Of course there is still a long ways to go, due process, especially for the connected, and all that. Is he closely related to any prominent judges, or is murder too…

WARNING!! If this case gets assigned to Easy Ed Parkinson.... the fix is in. Just like it's been in since 2006. Remember what happened with those other cases involving Parkinson and public officials or attorneys (Cashman) BTW, Mr. Lovelace is on wife #3 (that we know about)

State of the State address to focus on economy

7 months ago From dailyherald.com

From From dailyherald.com:

Gov. Pat Quinn's State of the State address Wednesday gives the Democrat a pulpit to take some of the 2014 political attention back from the four Republican candidates for governor who have been criticizing him.

He's likely to spend at least some time on recent political victories, including signing last month a law cutting public workers' pension benefits.

Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson said he'll do some reflecting on the past but also put a focus on the economy and middle class. Quinn has publicly supported raising the minimum wage to at least $10 an hour.

"It will be jobs, jobs and what's necessary to create jobs," she said.

Democrats across the country are trying to craft a message for 2014 that emphasizes the middle class, and it's one the populist Quinn is likely to embrace. He often punctuates his speeches with: "Everybody in, nobody left out."
