I think QJHS's size has a lot to do with it being kept as well. Imagine the cost to rebuild a school of that size. Early in the discussion I recall someone bringing up the idea of building a new high school and architects said that it could easily cost 100 million.

The most interesting thing about this is that SRN&M was only charging the district 80 bucks an hour for legal. Good luck getting that rate next time you slip and fall.

The race card gets pulled out when the liberals don't have any logical arguments left in their bag. They are saying "I can't win this debate with facts so I will assault your character". It is an attempt to win by intimidation. Very sad.

Ill. prisons to undergo computer system upgrade

4 months ago from the Associated Press

The $2 million dollar change could allow the agency to improve inmate health screening

Illinois prisons will be closed to visitors for one day next week to allow officials to upgrade an outdated and cumbersome computer system.

The Illinois Department of Corrections will begin the process of switching from its 30-year-old mainframe computer on Sunday, June 22. The $2 million dollar change could allow the agency to improve inmate health screening and to better coordinate inmate records with county jails.

IDOC spokesman Tom Shaer says it's amazing that the state's prison system is still using the technology first installed in the 1980s.

The agency oversees 48,000 prisoners and as many as 500 enter and leave every day. The state computer and Cook County record-keeping system cannot communicate - forcing workers to manually enter prisoner information.
