When the Fed "investigation" wraps up these injuries may be attributed to the officer slipping on a bar of soap.

#1 they had to prepay 1 months insurance last year due to switching from self insured to insured meaning 13 months payments #2 despite being on an insurance plan rather than self insured, they still had outstanding claims to pay from when they were self insured.

More like it's an environment where a candidate's credibility can be destroyed. I doubt it really gives too many people a warm fuzzy about them. And who watches them anyways? Anybody here want to fess up to watching a governor's debate?

"It can create an environment in which a candidate's credibility is measured," CREDIBILITY??? - the only question in this election is which one will be jailed first. Can we have a candidate who isn't under investigation?? Rhetorical question I know - this is IL.

WIU: Tougher admissions standards making impact

8 months, 1 week ago from Associated Press

More qualified applicants are looking at Western Illinois

Western Illinois University says tougher admissions standards are helping to attract more qualified applicants.

University officials announced earlier this year that the new standards would go into effect for high school seniors applying for the fall 2014 semester.

Admissions Director Andy Borst says the university has seen progress and hopes for even more improvement. He says the university is drawing more qualified applicants, while Western is making admissions decisions much more quickly than in the past - within four days, instead of three weeks.

Borst says the number of freshman applicants meeting the school's tougher standards is up 12.6 percent compared to last year. Another 5,500 freshmen are expected to apply for the fall 2014 semester.

He says the next goal is getting students to commit to attending Western.
