pjohnf - Gov. Quinn calls special session for comptroller election - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Quinn should butt out and let Rauner appoint an interim comptroller and decide if an election is needed or even wanted by Illinois citizens. Why waste more tax payer dollars for a special session, especially if Rauner disagrees with Quinn's stance. The earliest election would be 2016, so what's the hurry Quinn? The special session is a total waste of tax payer dollars

There are very few truly victimless crimes. If you look at Quincy, the arrests and names you see over and over again aren't usually getting picked up for smoking a joint, they're getting arrested for cooking and selling meth.

Ill. prisons to undergo computer system upgrade

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Illinois prisons will be closed to visitors for one day next week to allow officials to upgrade an outdated and cumbersome computer system.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