AND for every hour paid at the higher rate is 5 cents more in tax revenues. Doesn't sound like much but wouldn't you like to have a nickel for every additional 5 cents they get.
pjohnf - Illlinois Dem leaders urge minimum wage hike - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Durbin, Quinn and Schakowsky are pushing the minimum wage increase as a payoff to their union buddies because as the minimum goes up the unions can use the increase to support increases for their members. And that way the unions will have more money to give to the democrats. The vicious money laundering cycle continues.

Obama's, Reid, Pelosi's and Durbin's version of immigration reform isn't true reform but it is amnesty or as some like to call it, democrat voter registration. Unless and until the border is fully secured and the flow of illegal aliens is stopped, the madness will continue. Our inept government also needs to implement E-Verify in the workplace nationwide and any employer caught…

Good grief how many Judges does it take to run the courts in Cook county? Must be a lot of crime and corruption in Cook county. Oh that's right, Cook county is run by corrupt progressive democrats so they need a lot of judges to adjudicate all the crime and corruption.

It seems it would be difficult to pay "disorderly conduct" fines when making minimum wage. Or maybe there is a government program for this?? Comparing this movement to the civil rights movement is laughable. If they want to be taken seriously they need to drop this.

OLC Board approves bid for new roof over Kent Hall

1 year, 8 months ago by Denise Donley

Construction on Kent Hall will hopefully begin by the end of the year

Goerlich Roofing was awarded the bid to construct Kent Hall’s new roof for the Oakley Lindsey Center.

At Wednesday’s meeting, the Oakley Lindsey Center board announced the $57,000 bid was awarded to Goerlich Roofing. 

OLC will receive a 20 year warranty for the Kent Hall roofing replacement and work will hopefully begin before the end of the year, weather permitting.

“We’ve been able to secure a good bid and looking forward to getting the roof replaced up there,” said Executive Director Rob Ebbing. “We’re keeping it up to shape so we’re not falling apart.”

The Gems Baseball team budget has been an item of scrutiny in the past months, and Wednesday’s meeting showed no different.

Budget line items were moved around but the overall budget remained the same.

There was a decrease in travel expenses for the team this past season, so money was moved from the travel expenses to cover other items instead.

Doing this is against OLC Board policy, and Ebbing was asked by the board to fix this.

“This coming year we’re really going to have to sit down and crunch the numbers,” said Ebbing. “We love keeping baseball alive in Quincy and having the Gems here for the community, but we can’t continue to keep taking losses.”

In other business, the OLC and KHQA will co-host the Outdoor Show, taking place in January 2013. This event will host local businesses showcasing campers, ATV’s, motorcycles, boats and much more.

The OLC will be sharing revenues and sales of vendors with KHQA. In exchange, KHQA will take care of advertising for OLC and the event.

Also, the storage building remains on holds as the application for the DCEO grant is still waiting approval.

The board will meet again December 19 at 12:00 p.m.
