And, as a veteran too, I don't expect any special treatment. But, when the President of the U.S. is on the phone with the Mexican President I do expect a request to ensure fair treatment which never happened. And I expect the Secretary of State, when asked by family members and aware of the facts of the case to also make an attempt to help. As you noted consular officers aren't supposed…

Have you watched any investigation of this? He did not "knowingly" drive into Mexico. He missed the turnaround lane and had no choice but to drive to the crossing gate where they arrested him. They never gave him a chance to turn around and go back to the USA. It's a multi-lane road with a concrete barrier lane with one entry point on the left lane that, at night, would be quite easy to miss.…

I hear that Mr. Cobb is away from school more than he is at school. I hope this information is incorrect. Hope we are not giving a raise to someone who is a part time superintendent .

Group of state workers receives raises, despite no contract

1 year, 5 months ago by Bob Gough

From sj-r.com: About 1,500 unionized workers at the Illinois Department of Transportation and other agencies received raises last month, even though their union is still negotiating a new contract with the state.

The workers, members of General Teamsters/Professional & Technical Employees Local 916, received 3 percent wage increases Jan. 1, Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration confirmed.

The raises were awarded even though the contract covering the workers expired June 30 and a new agreement has not been negotiated.

The Teamster raises were awarded at the same time as negotiations with the largest state employee union, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, have ground to a halt and the union has advised members to prepare for the possibility of a strike.
