I do believe Bud has sworn to vote no on all expenditures until QPS does a forensic audit. I seem to remember reading that before... http://www.qps.org/files/board/Minutes_201011/042...

His supporters also don't see the people who whisper in his ear all the time. He is being used by some people who have an ax to grind against the school district but don't have the stones to run for the board or publicly press their vendettas. You almost have to have pity on the man. In the south, everything they would say about a guy like Bud would be prefaced or followed by "Bless his…

Bud is incapable of understanding most of the issues, so he feels it is best to abstain or vote no. I don't think there is much rational to his actions other than he gets a pat on the back from the folks that support him. I don't think he has brought forth a solution or innovative idea in years, he just fills the chair. Frankly its sad to watch him during the meetings, but his supporters…

Massive meth bust on Quincy's North Side

Investigators found over 500 shake-and-bake containers on the property

Drug investigators in Quincy have uncovered what was described as one of the largest methamphetamine operations seen in the city.

After a month and half long investigation, officers with the West Central Illinois Drug Task Force along with the Adams County Special Response Team raided a home at 412 Spruce St. in Quincy Monday around 9:45 am.

Authorities found over 500 bottles used in the production of "shake and bake" methamphetemine. According to Illinois State Police Master Sergeant Pat Frazier, one bottle is the equivalent of one batch of methamphetemine.

"The amount of stuff we seized was out of the ordinary. This was a shake and bake operation and there was evidence of numerous shake and bakes. We actually had to have a truck come to help us deal with it because it's more than we can deal with locally," Frazier said.

Two individuals were home at the time of the raid and were taken into custody.

31 year old Field M. Wolf and 34 year old Christina Rife were arrested and charged with unlawful participation in meth production and meth waste.

They are lodged in the Adams County Jail.

The Quincy Police Department and the Meth Response Team also assisted in the investigation.
