Dish and Direct do not use City property for their systems. They are satellite based..."beam me down Scotty". Only physical presence is their antenna on your building or in your yard, both private property. Don't know about the phone company. But they are required to share their lines with other carriers. So, who pays that?

This whole trash fiasco started out with the TLE's (aka Kyle Moore) Director of Administrative Services thinking the cost of Workmen's Comp insurance premiums could be dramatically reduced if the City used the totes and trucks equipped with lift devices. The decision was made to offer that service to residents at a considerable cost increase over the sticker system. The totes cost $65 up…

Here here! We must remember that in 1856, the GOP was a fledgling upstart made up of former Whigs and a few Democrats. Then, once Lincoln won the White House in 1860, the GOP held the Presidency for most of the next 50 years, except for the two Cleveland terms. So there is hope for another party to rise and take the place of the Repulicrats/Democans. The sooner the better!

Frese, Brady discuss 2nd Amendment in Macomb, Galesburg

Frese, Brady discuss 2nd Amendment in Macomb, Galesburg

2 years, 2 months ago by Bob Gough

Republican State Senate candidate Randy Frese appeared with Sen. Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) in Macomb and Galesburg as they discussed 2nd Amendment rights.

"The first bill I will propose as senator representing the 47th senate district will be for conceal and carry," Frese said.  "It’s important to our district for several reasons.  One being is that a great deal of this district is rural.  A call to the sheriff could result in a delay of a reaction if immediate services were needed.  People need to be able to protect themselves, their home, and their property.  Law abiding citizens will follow the gun laws that are set into place.  That’s the bottom line.  Preventing people from concealing and carrying is not only detrimental to their safety and security, but also denying them a fundamental right that has been enacted by 49 other states.”

Frese says he's been hearing from members of the NRA in the 47th District about further proposed anti-gun legislation that is coming from Chicago

“The idea that the Cook County Board President is discussing plans to tax ammunition as a way to prevent people from using guns illegally is not only troubling, but also irresponsible," he said.  "We shouldn’t tax law abiding citizens under some misguided notion that criminals will suddenly stop committing crimes because we’ve written a new law.  This is a bad solution to a problem that predominately applies to Cook County, and we need to elect officials that are able to work independently of the Chicago Machine.” 

 

 

Senator Bill Brady alsoweighed in during the discussion.  “Randy’s ideas and work ethic will make him an important addition to the senate.  He will work hard not only for gun rights, but also on getting the budget under control and bringing jobs to Illinois,especially western Illinois.  I look forward to working with him and am proud to support his campaign for senate.”
