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.

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…

Ex-congressman Jackson is eligible to receive $8,700 dollars per month in disability pay due to his bipolar condition

From WLS:

August 14, 2013 (WLS) -- The ABC7 I-Team is following the money, from the jewelry, trips and clothing to the celebrity trinkets, all paid for by the Jacksons' "personal slush fund"-- to use the words of Washington's top federal prosecutor. 

The assistant head of the FBI in Washington Wednesday night says of Jesse and Sandi Jackson, "They can hide no more." For years, they hid lavish spending of campaign money, but the I-Team has learned that U.S. officials plan for the government to make money off of some of their purchases, auctioning off some of those Jackson treasures. At the same though, that very same government may also be paying ex-congressman Jackson monthly disability, and later, a pension.

First the pensions, for both Jacksons. They were public employees: his work for the federal government since being elected to Congress in 1995; her work for the City of Chicago since being elected alderman in 2007.

Ex-congressman Jackson is eligible to receive $8,700 dollars per month in disability pay due to his bipolar condition and could receive a partial federal pension of $45,000 per year once he reaches 65.
