The aldermanic vote was 7-6. Moore's vote doesn't count as an aldermanic vote since he's the mayor. BG

If the vote to approve the Machinists contract was 7-6, with Mayor Moore voting with the majority because of a tie vote among the Aldermen present, doesn't that mean Jared Holbrook was not the only Alderman absent that evening? Or, did we lose an Alderman somewhere along the way these past few months and I missed reading about it?

Nope, Migraine... I'll give you credit for having a sense of humor about this issue... But seriously no I'm not interested in complaining for the sake of complaining. I'm interested in our system being fair, is all. A lot of the people that have posted here have got my stance all wrong. I'd be all for requiring some form of ID as a safeguard, but not the way that it stands…

Workers strike leads to company shutdown

With the Hostess Brand Inc. closing its doors, say goodbye to Twinkies and Wonder Bread.

According to reuters.com, Hostess Brands was granted permission Friday morning from the U.S. bankruptcy court to go out of business after
failing to get wage and benefit cuts from thousands of its striking bakery workers.

Not only will consumers no longer be able to find the sliced bread or cream filled rolls on grocery shelves, but one local business will be
closing its doors.

The Hostess Bakery Outlet, 1438 N. 24th Quincy, will close at 4:00 p.m. Monday, November 19 for good. Locally, the move affects three employees. Nationwide, about 18,500 of Hostess's employees will lose their jobs.

A representative from the Bakery Outlet said "We knew this might happen with the bakers union being on strike."

She added the store has seen an increase in customers this week and will most likely not have any food left come close Monday.

The Quincy outlet's last shipment of baked goods came in Thursday.
