At the very least, deal with the parasite that is recycling. Its a complete money pit, costing the city more money to dump recycle than it is to just take that waste and put it in a landfill...not to mention, it puts more trucks in service, costing more to maintain, and more guys to use those trucks...AND IT DOESN'T COLLECT ANY REVENUE FOR THE CITY! Either charge people to recycle, or get rid…

Before going with the new trucks version, offer the private company a six year (instead of ten) deal, at a 15% discount from their current price. If the council votes that they would approve that, the company might jump at it. (no idea if they are legit, or union, or what) What does Mrs. Hackamack suggest? Does the "old guard" have a better idea, that isn't just about protecting city workers?…

"former Adams County Assistant State's Attorney and a former member of the Quincy School Board" WOW ... so they draw the line at murder? The protected elite class can't really get away with anything and everything? Of course there is still a long ways to go, due process, especially for the connected, and all that. Is he closely related to any prominent judges, or is murder too…

Pabst would consider bid for Michelob

AB InBev may have to divest other brands in the U.S. to avoid a court fight over a proposed full takeover of Mexico City-based Modelo

From.bloomberg.com: 

Pabst Brewing Co. would look into buying Michelob from Anheuser-Busch InBev NV should the brand be divested to settle a U.S. antitrust lawsuit to block the $20.1 billion takeover of the rest of Grupo Modelo SAB.

“We would consider the opportunity if it became available,” Daren Metropoulos, chief executive officer of Los Angeles-based Pabst, said today in an e-mail. “It’s premature to reach out” to AB InBev “right now. But we certainly like the Michelob brand.”

The U.S. Department of Justice argued in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington last week that AB InBev’s Modelo transaction would violate antitrust law by eliminating the “substantial head-to-head competition” between the companies.

AB InBev may have to divest brands, including Michelob, in the U.S. to avoid a court fight over a proposed full takeover of Mexico City-based Modelo, Anthony Bucalo, an analyst for Banco Santander SA in London, said in an October note.

Marianne Amssoms, a spokeswoman for Leuven, Belgium, AB InBev, didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail and telephone call seeking comment.
