Can't do a sunset provision? It's a referendum...unless Illinois has specific language requirements for sales tax (which I can't seem to find) you can put anything you want on a referendum. After the referendum passes they create an ordinance...and the idea that somebody would sue that you can't put a sunset provision in an ordinance sounds pretty ludicrous to me. A self-restricting…

There's also 7.6 million Illinois residents that aren't being represented by little Dickie Durbin. Yes the majority rules in our republic but that doesn't mean the minority shouldn't be represented and their rights protected. Durbin is a typical liberal democrat who believes that the socialist agenda comes above all things. The Herald Rag endorsed Durbin because he brings home…

A word of advice. Always get plenty of sleep before coming into contact with Kevin Taute. He may look at your eyes and be so bold, not only as to accuse you of having consumed marijuana, but then additionally suggest you're growing it in a planter pot to distribute as well. What a tool! If only we could all aspire to such douchebaggery.

This is an honest question. Regarding lack of poor judgement during 'protocol'. Of course, what the hell does he care. The gentleman made over 90K in 2010, so likely, reasonably more now. "To serve and collect". Where are good officers these days?

Preliminary hearing set for accused murderer Carter

1 year, 10 months ago by Bob Gough

Defendant repeatedly said he didn't understand charges

Judge Robert Adrian set a preliminary hearing for January 23 in the case of a man charged with first degree murder in last week's Downtown fatal shooting.

Vincent B. Carter, 44, appeared before Adrian this morning in Adams County Circuit Court. Wearing the usual orange and white striped jumpsuit and orange flip-flops, Carter was cuffed at the wrists and ankles.

Carter was filling out paperwork for a public defender before the judge opened the session, saying he had no money for a private attorney and on the section of the form where you list your incomed, Carter said "I got no income. I'm putting zero."

Adrian read that Carter was being charged with first degree murder and that on January 3 he shot Terry Williams with a semi-automatic pistol, knowing it would create bodily harm. Carter allegedly shot Williams on Thursday afternoon. He was arrested Friday morning in the Northwest section of Quincy.

Multiple times, Carter interrupted Adrian, saying "I don't understand that." Adrian then read the charges again, but Carter continued the interruptions, saying "I didn't know that", "My mind is a blank" and "I don't understand any of this."

Carter eventually acknowledged he was being charged with first degree murder, although he repeated that he didn't understand why he was being charged.

Carter told Adrian he needed a public defender.

"I haven't been able to get ahold of my people," Carter said.

Chief Public Defender Holly Henze will represent Carter.

Carter remains in the Adams County Jail on $1 million bond.
