So, those of using private haulers, who have been subsidizing garbage pick up for years for those who chose to use stickers, now get to pay even more? This isn't going to end well for the Kyle administration.

AMBOY – Mike Pasley, 47, a popular social studies teacher at Amboy High School for 10 years, died Sunday at KSB Hospital, Lee County Coroner Jesse Partington confirmed this morning.

The school held a brief meeting with students this morning to let them know, and will have counselors and clergy members on hand all day for any who wish to use them, Principal Joshua Nichols said.

The school also has brought in a substitute teacher, to be used if any of Amboy's teachers feel the need to step out at any time, he said.

Neighboring school districts also have sent counselors to assist, and "we're very appreciative," Nichols said, adding that the students are "doing fine."

Pasley was a well-liked teacher, Nichols said. "A number of students are going to be missing him."

Pasley, of Dixon, also had been a sports correspondent for Sauk Valley Media and for The (Moline) Dispatch and Rock Island Argus.

An autopsy was being conducted this morning; natural causes are likely, Partington said.

Information on services will be posted when it becomes available. Jones Funeral Home in Dixon is handling arrangements.
