Bob is a very nice guy and served well before but I think it is time for some new blood. I think this "appointment" is old school politics as usual. Must have been some give and take associated with it.

There are a lot of other hearing aids on the market other than the "extreme" and very expensive type mentioned in the above article. Those others are even offered by QMG such as the ones I have for each ear. Hearing aids are like any other digital, electronic device and are always being updated as technology advances. They like anything else and range in price.

In 2010, Philip Diaz was held on a murder charge with a $1,000,000 bond. This one is more, obviously, but it doesn't really matter when you're talking about that big of a number. But for argument's sake, you have to consider the nature of the crime. Diaz shot and killed someone in a moment of anger and passion, a person he probably didn't know all that well. Mr. Lovelace is accused…

Convoy> It's too bad some of you union boys just don't have any integrity when it comes to jobs. Take the best paying whether you're qualified or not. Kind of like cheating, isn't it? Wait, it is cheating! I guess cheaters think everyone else is a cheater. You should also learn the difference between jealousy and contempt.

A coalition of labor unions and state retirees are challenging the constitutionality of Illinois’ pension law

A coalition of labor unions and state retirees is asking a judge for an expedited ruling in a case challenging the constitutionality of Illinois’ pension law.
Attorneys filed the motion in Sangamon Circuit Court Thursday. They want Judge John Belz to factor in a Supreme Court decision that found health insurance premiums were a protected retirement benefit for state workers.
The groups say the same issue is central to their suit over the pension law, which increases employee contributions and reduces benefits. They say the law violates the state constitution, which says public employee benefits cannot be “diminished or impaired.”
Lawmakers and state officials have said that Illinois’ financial crisis is bad enough to warrant the plan despite the constitutional clause.
The parties will appear in court Sept. 4.
