At the very least, deal with the parasite that is recycling. Its a complete money pit, costing the city more money to dump recycle than it is to just take that waste and put it in a landfill...not to mention, it puts more trucks in service, costing more to maintain, and more guys to use those trucks...AND IT DOESN'T COLLECT ANY REVENUE FOR THE CITY! Either charge people to recycle, or get rid…

Before going with the new trucks version, offer the private company a six year (instead of ten) deal, at a 15% discount from their current price. If the council votes that they would approve that, the company might jump at it. (no idea if they are legit, or union, or what) What does Mrs. Hackamack suggest? Does the "old guard" have a better idea, that isn't just about protecting city workers?…

"former Adams County Assistant State's Attorney and a former member of the Quincy School Board" WOW ... so they draw the line at murder? The protected elite class can't really get away with anything and everything? Of course there is still a long ways to go, due process, especially for the connected, and all that. Is he closely related to any prominent judges, or is murder too…

'This deer fell from the sky'

Deer jumps from overpass and lands on minivan in Northern Illinois

From from dailyherald.com:

Heidi Conner came out of a daze to hear her 8-year-old daughter screaming in the back seat of their minivan.

Next to the West Dundee mom -- inside the car -- lay the body of a mangled deer. How the 200- to 300-pound doe got there baffled police and emergency room doctors.

They assumed Conner hit the animal Sunday afternoon while driving about 70 mph west on the Jane Addams Tollway near Hoffman Estates.

"I'm like, 'No, a deer hit me,'" she said. "Nobody can believe this deer fell from the sky."

Conner, 37, and four of her five kids were just two exits shy of leaving the tollway when witnesses say the deer jumped off the Route 72 overpass and landed on her 2004 Chevy minivan about noon Sunday, Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Paul Carlos said.

The creature crashed through the windshield, clipping Conner's forehead and shoulder and coming to rest right down the middle of the van. The head settled by the glove compartment between Conner and her 13-year-old son, who was sitting in the front passenger seat.
