Sure hope all the new folks promise not to suck the public teat of Health insurance and pension plan for a part time job. We taxpayers could save $20,000 for every current alderman we turn out if the new person would swear off the public nipple.

The only time we might have a block of tickets is for groups, and those have deposits and deadlines attached to them. So that would not work. I love flying out of the Quincy Airport. Jarred Hester is doing a great job there, but another airline is probably not going to come…

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.
