One important factor for me is missing from this article. How many politicians/bureaucrats have served time in jail for Cook and Iroquois counties? The question is not only quantity of government but quality of government.

You mean they should just keep on footing the bill for every freaking thing? I say the taxpayer has had it! Time to put the goose that lays the golden eggs on a diet. Lets start by cutting our city council and county board in half. Next, every state employee making over $100,000 takes a 10% pay cut. That would be a good start.

Are employees allowed to have their cell phones in the building?? - if so then this is a stupid rule. I doubt the "efficiency" of our government will be impacted much by a cell phone that is turned off.

Selective editing? Please tell me that nobody in the media does that? Oh my gosh....my confidence in the media has been shaken!!! Lots of those around...numerous police videos for example where all you see is the person being taken down and not the reason for the take down.

Theft Austin Creeps reports his black Samsung cell phone taken from where he hid it outside the Adams County Courthouse on 7-16. Maybe the courthouse needs to install a bank of lockers like they have at Scotties: Go in with something you're not supposed to have, like your cell, and you can put in a quarter, lock it up, and grab it on your way out.

Edina Sentinel reporter kept out of courtroom during murder trial

From From nemonews.net:

Last week, the defense subpoenaed Sentinel reporter Echo Menges as a witness. By invoking “the rule”, witnesses are kept out of the courtroom until they are called to testify. Exactly what Echo is supposed to testify to is not clear, since she didn’t witness the crime, and has already reported everything else she has found out.

It’s our opinion that the subpoena was simply to keep Echo from reporting on the story. We hired the law firm of Ahern and Bach to argue the issue on a variety of First Amendment and other legal grounds, but our motion to quash was overruled by Judge Gary Dial.

The legal costs alone will likely cost us the Sentinel several hundred dollars. Not to mention travel expenses.

Starting Tuesday, I will be going to Moberly to cover the trial, so that we can finish what we’ve started-bringing our readers complete news coverage of this important issue.

For those of you that think we might do things just to “sell papers”, consider this: IF we were to sell an extra 100 papers, that would be huge. IF those papers were all sold in our office, so we weren’t splitting the money with our dealers, we’d make an extra 55 bucks. So obviously, it’s not about the money.

We do it because we care about our communities, and because it’s the right thing to do.
