This is part of the problem, we have had prohibition laws in this country for 90+ years now it didn't work with alcohol and we keep trying the same basic enforcement with drugs. The war isn't working and in some respects its getting worse, like you said the same stories and the same names over and over again, somethings not working I think its time we go back to the drawing board. IMO…

as have I, I just think if you want people on your side or to be taken seriously your better off starting with a fact or and argument not a Jr. Highish comment. Just my opinion though as I see your rating is higher than mine.

I was going to vote this one up, but the grammar towards the end threw me off and I'm not 100% sure which side you're on here.

I am not buying this load of baloney - he wants another chance to pass minimum wage increase. IL can't afford the costs of a special election - it can wait - the Treasurer can cover this interim period.

JWCC gets 23K grant for Community Tech Center in Mt. Sterling

Free Computer access for Brown Co residents

John Wood Community College has received an Eliminate the Digital Divide grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) in the amount of $22,950.  The institution will use this grant to open a Community Technology Center at its Mt. Sterling location, which will provide free computer access and technology assistance to those in the Brown County area who do not have personal access to a computer, need to improve their computer skills, or need assistance with online job searches or employment applications.

The CTC will make no less than two desktop computers available to the public with other computers available should the need arise, all of which will be available free of charge and available for public use.  The computers must only be used within the Community Technology Center, but will be available for both public use and technology education uses in the classroom.  Computer training courses are available on a first come - first served basis, and students must pre-register in order to enroll in the training courses. 

The trainings will educate a class size of between 6 and 15 students, and will teach students about the basic computer functions:  email, Internet browsing, online job application completion and Microsoft Office skills.  The CTC is staffed by two part-time instructors, as well as two full-time computer specialists, who will support student learning.  The Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) has also offered to provide one-on-one tutoring to those who need additional computer assistance upon completion of computer training courses. 

The Community Technology Center will be available to anyone who lives or works within the Brown County limits, and will be open Monday through Friday from 8 am – 5 pm. 

“By opening this resource in our Mt. Sterling location, we hope to teach the Brown County community the computer skills that are now vital in our technology-driven society, as well as provide the Brown County public with the personal computing resources they need,” said Mike Elbe, JWCC president.  “The training courses that the CTC will deliver are critical skills to learn for those who are striving to do any sort of office work as a future career.”
