WOW-- so you give some links to stories of a few that acted incorrectly. Who arrested them, for them to plead guilty? POLICE Anyone can sue, rightly or wrongly, and big cities settle suits all the time, even those without a shred of merit. Police are human, and other police catch them and arrest them, or fire them. NYC has between 30.000 and 40,000 police, Chicago has between 8,000 and 13,500, LA…

one case comes to mind, the woman was certifiable, manic, and frequently hitting. Once he said "what's good for the goose is good for the gander" ... hit back but didn't hurt. That was all she wrote ... as if she was ready and had a game plan. Ran out all histrionic, called cops, badda bing badda boom ... got her divorce, money, easy peasy for the lawyers. The fact she was manic, domineering,…

If you mean you have no proof they pulled you over you're wrong. All stops are recorded video/audio as long as the lights are on. And if you ever get pulled over for no reason feel free to complain to the chief. If there's an officer doing that and multiple reports show up it will catch up to them.

Well, you'd better get used to that one: The woman slapping the hell outta the man and him going to jail for deflecting the blows. Not to say this is always, or even often the case, but it's worth considering.

VIDEO: Quincy recognizes Manufacturing Day

1 year, 11 months ago by Bob Gough

Manufacturing employs nearly 4,900 people in Quincy and Adams County

David Castillo says he has had other job opportunities, but he’s happy where he’s been for the last eight years: Working for Knapheide Manufacturing.

Castillo and managers from Knapheide and several other Quincy manufacturers gathered outside Hollister-Whitney at the Herman Schneideman Industrial Park this morning to recognize Manufacturing Day.

Representatives from Quincy, Adams County, the Great River Economic Development Foundation, John Wood Community College and the Workforce Investment Board of Western Illinois met to honor the 100 manufacturers and the nearly 4,900 employees who work in the City and the County.

Manufacturers represent more than 17 percent of the County’s workforce with a total payroll of more than $240 million. The national percentage of manufacturing workers is about 11 percent.

Castillo utilized the Workforce Development Center at JWCC to improve his skills and move up the company ladder.

"Since I've been working for Knapheide as a brake machine operator, I decided to take advantage of the training," Castillo said. "I'm happy with my job and it's nice to know there are people out there looking for those skills."

More than 330 students have taken advantage of JWCC’s Workforce Development Center since it opened in July 2011.

Quincy Mayor John Spring issued a proclamation for Manufacturer’s Day in Quincy.
