Fine let's make the IHSA open their books and meetings to scrutiny but state government should not be allowed to control high school sports. Government screws up everything it touches and we don't need state government screwing up high school sports too.

How about if they get food stamps and a free lunch, the food stamp amount if lowered by what the free lunches cost. As that is double dipping. WHY should the taxpayers have to pay them twice of more for the same thing?

If you get more then you paid in, it is an ENTITLEMENT. As it is someone else's money. If you get a deduction, you get to keep more of YOUR money. Liberals think the money people earn belongs to the government or other people, so if you get to keep some of the money you earn, liberals view that as an entitlement. There in lies the problem with this country. If you earn the money and you get…

These kids would do fine on rice, beans, PBJ and any number of CHEAP healthy foods that people have been getting by on for millennia. I know. My parents raised 6 and everyone of us was skinny, healthy, and had a full stomach every day. We were eligible for every program out there at the time, but my father would have none of it. We packed our lunches until the school system wouldn't allow it.…

There should be no cheating of course, but this is one place where tax money goes directly to making it a little easier to raise kids. I'm for that. I'm for a subsidy/entitlement/credit whatever ... for families raising children, even if they have seemingly marginal need. Money for school lunches is a rather direct way of providing that, with no way to directly divert that money. I guess…

City looks to refinance G.O. bonds

1 year, 5 months ago by Bob Gough

The City of Quincy is looking to refinance some of its bonds at lower interest rates in order to save money.

The City Council’s Finance Committee heard a proposal from the administration that would refinance one set of bonds at a 1.6 percent rate, which is down from the current 5.75 percent rate and save $72,000 and another set of bonds at a 2.08 percent rate, which is down from the current 4.47 percent rate and would save $140,000.

The action moves to the full City Council for a vote.

The City Council reviewed sales tax revenues for November, with the city bringing in $785,314 in sales tax and $842,581 in home rule sales tax revenues.

Aldermen gave third and final reading and approved moving $14,147 from the general fund to the City Council group insurance plan.
