No, really all I was saying is 1% sounded very reasonable. I didn't talk politics other than to ask what the no votes were based on and BG gave an answer. I think you and tdown are wanting to argue. I just want to understand, be realistic and express my pleasure that there wasn't a 5% increase

Ok, your income is increasing but not your employees. Then its your employees that may want to reconsider their career choice. All I was trying to say is anyone would desire to have their income increase and must everyones income does increase by more than 1% a year, that's just a fact unless you aren't a dedicated worker or you're a deadbeat, or in jail etc.

When you ask the question, "How could anyone complain?" (and also "1%?"), you are definitely arguing on behalf of the contract that was approved. Those rose-colored glasses that you wear when it comes to City politics aren't all that becoming. Is your last name Grussenmeyer? Reis? Goehl? Holtschlag? I am sure you are in the family tree somewhere....

From KHQA:

BOSTON -- At least four Tri State area residents registered to run the Boston Marathon.

Joshua Sherwood, 23, from Quincy, Ill., Jeri Conboy, 61, from Palmyra, Mo., Keith Schluter, 54, from Macomb, Ill.,  and Christopher Trone, 56, from Rushville, Ill. are all listed as runners on the Boston Athletic Association Web site.

Friends have heard from Sherwood who finished the race before the explosions. His listed time is 3:46:24.

Schluter is also listed as a finisher with an official time of 3:59:00.

Trone's time is listed as 3:39:02.

Conboy is listed at the 40K split as having a time of 4:01:47.

"I was about 3/10 of a mile from the finish line when we heard the explosion, and they stopped the race," Conboy said. "Anyone who was behind me didn't finish."

Conboy said she did not see the explosions first-hand and that she is doing fine.
