If the state or local police don't treat these any better than last years laws (throwing cigarettes on ground & phone use while driving) then these laws are a joke like Illinois.

It is correct that the tote system was presented as a means to solve a high work comp ratio. And it is correct that the projected number of 1500 households fell sadly low in comparison...merely 700 with people canceling. And why not? Private haulers matching the price and you can put anything out for them, it doesn't have to be bagged. Oh, but put a price on those small businesses so they can't…

There has been a lot of info about the school board election in the media. But, Are the same people that were on the Quincy Park Board running? Or, maybe that election isn't held at the same time the School Board Election? Sorry to see Jeff M. go, although I didn't agree with him all the time.

What property of the city does Comsast use? The biggest chunk of property leased to them is probably Amerens power poles, unless they have buildings residing on city property that I am not aware of. the fee paid to the phone company is paid by whoever is leasing the line.

Concealed carry of weapons on private property currently not allowed without permission

From myfoxchicago.com:

As Illinois gets ready to enact its new concealed carry law, Sen. Don Harmon of the 39th district is proposing that signs be put up that say businesses do allow guns inside.

Illinois Senate Bill 2669 is sponsored by the Democratic senator from Oak Park. Harmon said the legislation would amend the Firearm Concealed Carry Act, which currently states a person is not allowed to carry a concealed weapon onto private property without permission from the property owner.

The proposal would allow business owners to post clear signs at building entrances and other places on the premises indicating they do allow concealed firearms.

Nicole, a local representative of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, said she supports State Sen. Harmon's proposal.

She has found that in her neighborhood, some business owners that do not want guns in their stores are hesitant to post signs indicating firearms are not welcome. Nicole said the Illinois chapter of her organization believes they should have a right to choose, and that they should not feel showing their desire would be detrimental to business.

Nicole said she sees signs indicating gun-free zones are currently posted at her child's pre-school, and finds them to be a frightening reminder of the tragic mass-shooting of young children in Newtown, Conn. in 2012.

She told FOX 32 news that Senate Bill 2669 would render gun-free zone signs redundant and unnecessary at places like her child's school. She also said local businesses would benefit from posting positive signs as opposed to negative ones.
