There has been lots of chatter about why the investigation began on this again in 2013 and what new evidence can pop up etc. He married his second wife within about a year and a half of the death of Cory. He and his second wife were then divorced in 2013. One article on another news source said the second wife was contacted and said "I can't talk about it." Whether that means she was told by someone…

I can actually think of a few scenarios where malice may not even be an issue, and that would reflect very darkly on the whole situation to the community at large. As darkly as out-and-out murder? I don't know, that would be in the eye of the beholder, I suppose.

Nancy Grace is actually correct on that point. It depends on the state, but in most states you can "premeditate" if you even have a few seconds to contemplate the action before taking it. That's opposed to a pure "heat of the moment" situation where the killer literally doesn't think, just acts. That would get you down to Second Degree murder (I believe)
QyFiredUp - City of Quincy looking to buy new garbage and recycle fleet - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Once again, I don't like your proposal. Why tie it to the water bill ? Explain why if I take 10 showers a day, I should pay more for garbage service? Furthermore, If you purchace a seperate meter for water, the city cannot make you pay for sewer tax if it is used to water your garden or grass. What makes you think they can charge for garbage pick up if i use a third party? If you can remember…

Network Knowledge sells farm land from Macomb transmitting site

2 years, 1 month ago by Bob Gough

Two years ago, the corporation sold its WQEC transmitting tower in Fowler

Network Knowledge, parent company of WSEC/WQEC, is selling more land as part of its ongoing strategy to restructure debt, in part by selling assets deemed non-essential to providing their programming.

“Our primary goal is to deliver quality programming,” said Dr. Jerold Gruebel, president & CEO of Network Knowledge. “We want to broadcast as much of the treasure of national programming as possible, and we want to be a valued community resource for locally-produced programs, primarily in collaboration with community groups and organizations.”

To do this, Network Knowledge has begun a strategy of reducing debt through the sale of assets and diversifying its fund raising by increasing viewer support, attracting more business partners for sponsorship of its programming and creating additional infrastructure revenues, such as increased tower leases.

Two years ago, Network Knowledge sold its WQEC transmitting tower in Fowler, Illinois. WQEC is the Network Knowledge community-licensed public television station for Quincy. With the leaseback of tower space for WQEC (at no cost), the new tower owner is able to generate revenues from tower leases while Network Knowledge was able to reduce debt equal to the sale of the tower.

Network Knowledge is presently completing the sale of farm land it owns for its WMEC/ PBS Macomb transmitting site in Colchester (completion of the sale should take 4 to 6 weeks), and may consider selling its farm land for the WSEC transmitting site in Franklin. Sale of the Colchester farm land will eliminate the line-of-credit debt Network Knowledge has with Bank of America, its primary lender, and give it funds to pay debt service on its long-term loan for approximately half of this fiscal year which began on July 1.

“This sale reduces our overall debt and gives Network Knowledge much needed relief in paying debt service, which in turn helps our operating cash flow. We retain ownership of the transmitting tower and all equipment on it.”
