Violence against violence only leads to more violence. Perhaps putting Soros or others responsible behind bars with the criminal element of the black community would be more justified than outright slaughtering of possibly innocent protesters.

One bid was from Quincy and one was from out of town. The bids were almost identical. Apparently the new manager didn't even "want" to take this to bid. So if we are paying some project manager from out of town who is hesitant or incapable of using RFP's effectively then the problems have already started without so much as a shovel getting a scratch on it.

Mr. Letterman's heartfelt 2002 appreciation of the late/great Warren Zevon is some of the best television that I have ever seen (Gawker posted an article about it earlier today, and I can honestly say that it still gives me chills to watch those clips.) http://gawker.com/remembering-warren-zevon-on-let...

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.
