Let's just hope that certain people aren't involved. Like the mother of a little boy that was murdered last spring. Her name was all over the scanner this morning. That would be a sad little circle if she was somehow involved in this. She has a black car, and lives right where the car was stopped. hopefully we have come a little farther in life than that. Please.
WarCry - Seven Dead, 34 Hurt In Weekend Shootings In Chicago - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Chicago no longer has the toughest gun laws in the country. Regarding handguns, they have the same laws as the rest of the state. That was part concealed carry law in 2013, eliminating "home rule" laws regarding handguns. It doesn't matter, though, because regardless of what gun laws are in place or not, it's still illegal to shoot people in almost all circumstances.

"Tree scape". A fiscal conservative would at least postpone an elective expense like this. Time to re-build cash reserves, then prioritize.

One of he few that stands up for what he believes. I don't think any want to take him on head to head but hide behind the procedural rules. Senate is a joke with McConnell, no better than Reid. He lied to get re elected in his state so why would Senate be different?
pjohnf - McConnell Angers Conservatives By Blocking Defunding Planned Parenthood, Kate’s Law - Quincy,
Makes one wonder if McConnell is a republican or the new democrat Harry Reid? McConnell apparently supports the baby butchers, illegal alien criminals, crony capitalism through E/I bank and obstructive legislative leadership. In other words, nothing has changed in congress with the GOP in charge.

Ameren Illinois is donating 50 window air conditioners Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials to help keep customers cool and safe this summer.
 
Two Rivers, which assists low-income families, veterans and the elderly, will distribute the units to qualifying individuals who meet Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) guidelines.
 
Overall, Ameren Illinois is donating 400 units to nine energy assistance agencies across its service territory. 
The air conditioners are rated units that meet the strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy. 
 
“We are so grateful to partner with Ameren Illinois on this important program. When the summertime heat and 
humidity goes up, there is only so much a box fan and keeping your windows open can do,” said Becky Pruden, 
director of Community Services Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials. “This wonderful donation 
provided by Ameren Illinois is a blessing. It allows us to help individuals and families to stay cool this summer.” 
 
The window units are being donated through the Ameren Cares program. Ameren Cares is an initiative that 
connects Ameren Illinois with the communities it serves through charitable giving and volunteering. 
 
“We started our Ameren Cares air conditioner giveaway last year and partnered with several energy 
assistance agencies to provide air conditioners to some of our most vulnerable customers,” said Richard J. 
Mark, president and CEO, Ameren Illinois. “This year we are continuing our efforts to provide much-needed 
relief to low-income families, veterans and the elderly who are particularly susceptible to the heat."
