They sell tents at Wal-Mart. Based on the quality of work they do that would be to good for them.

I am happy for Rome also. Does the law require that all that time and money be spent to look for a new person when he was the man to start with? Just curious. All three were great picks but Rome has a lifetime of experience with this type of thing.

I wish it showed a line item cost for the Gov. Mansion (utilities, security, maintenance, etc.) I doubt that Rauner would live there either. "It would be cheaper to own a Hotel/Motel in Springfield and have the elected officials stay there when in town and the other rooms would help pay for it. The sale of those homes would buy a hotel/motel".

I LOVE seeing all the positive comments. Great choice made by the board. QPD is going in the right direction. Congrats Rome!

Students staying at school up to 89 percent

From dailyherald.com:

Western Illinois University has received an award for increasing its student retention rate.

University officials say they were honored at a July 9 national conference on student recruitment, marketing and retention by education consulting firm Noel-Levitz.

Officials say the retention rate of students between fall 2013 and spring 2014 improved to over 89 percent, up from 82 percent last year.

They cite a mentoring program as one reason for Western's success in keeping students enrolled.

Western Illinois President Jack Thomas says he can personally attest to the potential of mentoring relationships "to positively impact student services and retention."
