The 50,000 so far i beleive would be most of the normal cost of maintence on the eqipment. I get the sticker increase but it sounds like your still going to rob from peter to give to paul for the rest. My question would be with the city cleanup coming up in sept, at a cost around $50,000 each year to the taxpayers,its was proposed in the private haulers contract free for the next ten years $500,000…

The raised sticker prices....remember? The only real change right now is buying one more truck then they had planned to. I'd like to see more of an analysis on the maintenance costs. Since central services does a lot of the repairs I wonder how this is all accounted for. What does the $50,000 spent so far this year include?

"It’s a coincidence", there are no coincidences in politics. One hand washes the other and politicians hand out favors to supporters like people hand out candy at a birthday party. A bigger concern for me is whether these political hacks did any work for the big money they were making? Handing out make work jobs for political support is an abomination and those that did it should be punished.

Sometimes I just put a bag of popcorn in the microwave and simply read the comments for a good laugh. You caught me at a moment where I happen to be out of popcorn.

Cameras in Illinois court pass test

1 year, 9 months ago by Bob Gough

From qctimes.com: MORRISON, Ill. — A new rule allowing cameras in some Illinois courtrooms passed one of its first major tests in Nicholas Sheley’s murder trial in Whiteside County, key players in the case say.

After a trial that included a week of jury selection and six days of testimony, Sheley was convicted Tuesday of first-degree murder, residential burglary and home invasion in connection with the June 23, 2008, death of Russell Reed, 93, of Sterling.

Whiteside County State’s Attorney Gary Spencer said he had concerns before the case started about whether allowing TV and still cameras into the courtroom during the trial would interfere with the state’s ability to give Sheley a fair trial.

After the trial was over, Spencer said he didn’t think the cameras had an impact.
