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.

That is a good quality bender at The Abbey and/or Spring Street - two fine watering holes!

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…

Only two items on agenda at Plan Commission meeting

1 year, 4 months ago by Paige Traeder

At Wednesday night's Plan Commission meeting, only 2 items were on the agenda and both were approved

At Wednesday night's Plan Commission meeting, only 2 items were on the agenda and both were approved.

First on the agenda, Anthony W. Williams requested a Special Permit to use property located at 439 North 3rd Street for vehicle and sales service. In each of the Downtown Districts, a special use permit is required to operate a "vehicle sales or service facility."

A used car lot and service garage has operated under a special use permit since 2005. There are two buildings on the property and Williams plans to demolish one and build a 2,100 sq. ft. building with two wash bays and offices in its place. Motion did carry and the request was approved.

Also, Robert H. Berger, of Berger Properties, LLC, requested a zoning change from M1 (Light Industrial) to D5 (Downtown Industrial) for property located at 220 Oak St. The property is in two zoning districts because it is an el-shaped, double-frontage parcel between Oak and Pine Streets.

Rezoning of the M1 portion of the property to the D5 classification was being sought to allow more flexibility in positioning buildings. The Commission approved the request.

In other business, amendments to the Land Use Plan will be talked about at next month's meeting. Some amendments discussed included sizes of political signs and the definition for backlit signs.

All matters approved by the Plan Commission go to City Council on Monday.
