Givemeliberty - Raw milk industry draws attention from Illinois regulators - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
With everything we have going on in this state and they are on a raw milk kick? Americans have been buying and selling farm produce at the local level for centuries, just leave it alone. Why do they always have to step in and put their grubby little paws on every frickin thing we do? I am a consumer of raw milk, and I am capable of nourishing my own body, leave me and my farmer alone and do something…

So does that mean your okay with a lying adulterer, accused of sexual assault, disbarred lawyer, lying, impeached ex-president?

So true and its usually the voters that make me want to pull my hair out not the politicians. The dem voters have always been upset about corporate welfare/ favoritism, and sending jobs over seas until Obama got elected. Not long after he was elected the Republicans became concerned with the Patriot Act, and hawks on our privacy. The majority of voters talk and act like they have issues they care…

#1. The board, from what I understand, has basically stated that impact on property taxes should be negligible. That is mostly because of the huge decrease in Life safety bonds that have to be issued. and the expiring existing school bonds, and net savings from operating new "energy star" buildings". You have to understand that Life Safety bonds can be issued with out tax payer approval. These…

Has anyone ever thought of making the vocational building (building F at QHS) the location for 9th grade additional classrooms? That way they would not have to add on to QHS at this time.

The president always gets the blame, good or bad with what happens during their term or terms as president but people that dont like him for what ever reason play by their own rules when not in their favor !! Just the way it is!!

Givemeliberty - Illinois lawmakers to discuss police body cameras - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com

if we are going to allow citizens of Illinois to film cops on duty (as we should) why would we not require cops to wear a cam on their person as well. Especially after Ferguson it seems like the logical thing to do, about a month ago I was reading about Rialto California where they implemented a body cam policy for their officers and use of force fell by 60% and complaints of police brutality fell…

True but he was president during the dot com boom and other than Al Gore creating the internet the federal gov had little to do with that. I wouldn't of mattered if HW or even Barry was prez the results would of been similar.

The Emerson School building was sold almost before the park district put it up for sale. There was interest from someone with money to put into it to renovate the building that the park district didn't have and couldn't get. The school district would be in the same position. Private money is far, FAR easier to put into projects like this if someone wants to do it. As this whole referendum…

First, these people anit your slave 8.25 an hour is a slap in the face. You want someone to do a job correctly not pay them what you think could possibly, you can't survive off 8.25 its the customer point of view not oh i make 30.00$ an hour no one want to walk in a place and see struggling people especially in a restaurant you pay a little more to the right people then there shouldnt be a problem…

Stay the course means $66M over 20 years or $3.3M per year which we can do and lower taxes at the same time (no bond payment needed). Over 20 years we could save $1.5M*15 plus $1.5M*5/2 (we save half over the 5 years to build the schools) I'm not sure where you get the information that there would be "no bond payment needed". They've said that if this referendum doesn't pass,…

Yes, watch all the fools come rushing to support their demo-rat comrades. Curious to see how many side with the commie regime this November.

I would love to know how many of you would borrow 18,000 to fix SOME but not all of the problems with your 1990 ford Taurus instead of borrowing 30,000 for a brand new 2015 model?

I'm glad to see some of these numbers finally. The only piece missing is how much the $89M bond is really costing us. But...let's work with what we've here: Stay the course means $66M over 20 years or $3.3M per year which we can do and lower taxes at the same time (no bond payment needed). Over 20 years we could save $1.5M*15 plus $1.5M*5/2 (we save half over the 5 years to build the…

Old Slick Willie, is the latest Democratic heavy-hitter to campaign for Quinn. If Slick is the democrats idol, you can say in truth, democrats have standards they're just very low standards.

chebby79 - School Board to outline plans for savings, old buildings if referendum passes - Quincy, IL News - Qu

the only problem is these old school buildings have low demand for exactly the same reasons the school board wants new buildings....to get away from the high maintenance/operating costs. and why wait to "outline the plan for savings" until after the election? hey, it's tax payer money and we are paying it so don't keep us in the dark. stop playing games or maybe next year I will exclude my…
