What kind of tactics are those....expecting someone to following the laws that have been on the books for decades?????????? Are we supposed to look the other way for nice guys and throw the book at people we don't like? Nobody is denying Brian the right to have a garage.....he already has one attached to his house and a 2,800 sq ft detached one as well. He's not exactly suffering a garage…

No one can tell me the police don't know who did this.. They just need more evidence before making an arrest. Quincy talks too much for anything to go on here and the police not know about it. I think in this case a lot of threats have been made to keep a witness from coming forward. -Just my thoughts on the situation.

Hard to believe what some people ( with an attorney) will do.This man is a outstanding business man, neighbor, and friend,and is being harassed by a neighbor who doesn't want him to build a garage, just isn't right that you can use these kind of tactics these days

Illinois State Fair officials busted for getting free beer tickets

8 months, 4 weeks ago from Associated Press

An Illinois state fair official is without a job following a scandal over free beer tickets. 

Investigators say former DuQuoin State Fair Manager John Rednour asked a beer vendor to give him up to two-thousand free beer tickets in 2012.  

The tickets were worth between four and eight-thousand dollars, which is more than the state's Gift Ban allows. 

Rednour resigned back in January and agreed to stay off the state's payroll for at least five years. 

The Illinois State Fair Manager was also caught up in the free beer scandal.  Amy Bliefnick was fined a-thousand-bucks and ordered to serve a two-day suspension without pay for taking unsolicited tickets from beer vendors last year.  

There's no evidence that she actually asked for the tickets, but she took them as part of a "long-standing practice" and handed them out to senior members at the Department of Ag.
