Is this a news story or just an opinion piece? There are two sides, those for and those against. Could you enlighten us about the costs of a automated jail door that should eliminate a couple of jobs but won't. GF: this is an account of a conversation that I was part of last week. The costs of construction and materials are available, but weren't discussed. This is not a hit piece on the FOR A…

Please also keep in mind that 40% of sales tax revenue in Adams county comes from citizens who live OUTSIDE of Adams county who come here from Missouri and surrounding counties to shop and spend their money. So the cost of this project to the residents and taxpayers of Adams County is only about $15M. Granted, those traveling here might not be able to spend as much if the tax is more, but I doubt someone…

Between chestnut and locust and 2nd to 12th, this area was on the upswing with three nursing homes and working class homeowners. Now with slum lords moving into the area like vultures buying up these properties choking the last cent from them, forcing land owners out of there homes due to the garbage and decay of the rental houses near to them, renters have no respect for the land owners that live…
pjohnf - Google controls what we buy, the news we read — and Obama’s policies - Quincy, IL News -
Any company in bed with politicians of any stripe is bad for American's but government control of the internet is bad news. Just as shown here government control of the flow of information in collusion with Goggle is biased and one sided. Of course you don't have to use Google but with Google writing the rules it gives them and government unfair advantage and control. What's the solution,…

Why is this comment even allowed? QJ should use some editorial judgement before they allow crap like this that is known to be completely false and can be verified as false with one phone call to the police. This is disgusting. URK: You have a point. However if QJ were to track down and verify every comment that was submitted very few would go through. It's our hope that those commenting are adult…

NASCAR driver and commentator appeared with Sen. Sullivan

State Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) and NASCAR driver Kenny Wallace promoted the use of E-15 fuels during a Wednesday visit to the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield. 

“E-15 is a high-performance fuel, and I know a little about high performance,” Wallace said. “More people should have the chance to buy fuel that helps Illinois’ largest industry: agriculture.” 

E-15 is a blended biofuel made up of 85% gasoline and 15% ethanol. E-15 is available at some gas stations in Illinois but is less common than the 10% ethanol blend sold across the state. 

“The more ethanol we put into our gas, the more money we put into Illinois’ farm economy. By expanding the use of E-15 we promote agriculture, help the environment with lower emissions and reduce our dependence on foreign oil,” Sullivan said. 

NASCAR has exclusively used E-15 fuel during practice, qualification and races since 2011. NASCAR switched to E-15 to lower emissions and promote the use of biofuels. 

A 2013 study reported that – since switching to E-15 – NASCAR’s viewers were 40% more likely to support the expansion of ethanol fuels and 50% more likely to use ethanol blends in their own vehicles. The switch to E-15 also reduced on-track emissions by 20%. 

Since his first NASCAR race in 1988, Kenny Wallace has 900 starts, 9 Nationwide Series wins and three Nationwide Series Most Popular Driver awards.
