Old Dickie is giving away our tax dollars and it's not even an election year. How are we to fund these clinics after the taxpayer grant runs out? It's nice that these people have medical care but what's wrong the care facilities we have here now? This sounds just like Slick Willie's cops program that went busted.

That may be true Qfingers, but if so why did the (so-called) "superstar finance expert" even take the Illinois job in the first place if she apparently had no intention of trying to come up with some kind of a solution? Remember that airline pilot (Capt. Sullenberger) a while back, who managed to successfully land his crippled plane full of passengers in the middle of the Hudson River (saving a whole…

I wonder how many of these "Free Clinics" Durbin gasses on about he's ever visited for actual healthcare, with his Golden Government (taxpayer supported) insurance. One thing to walk in as a State Senator with the media and entourage to check the service, quite another to be one of the indigent or elderly trying to actually GET service. And, like anything the Government does, it'll…

Perhaps it's more like Illinois is so screwed up it's beyond repair.

Fifth Ward alderman says time is right

Quincy Alderman Mike Rein (R-5th Ward) has asked the city's legal department to draft a concealed carry ordinance as the State of Illinois prepares to deal with the issue.

At Monday's City Council meeting, Rein asked the Police Aldermanic Committee and the Quincy Police Department to “work through the procedures.” The City Council approved Rein’s request.

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals gave the State of Illinois a deadline to pass a concealed carry law after it threw out a ban on the law. The state has a deadline to write a new law, but Attorney General Lisa Madigan has appealed the ruling.

Rein said if the state decides to allow concealed carry on its own, he won’t pursue the ordinance.

Adams County passed a nonbinding referendum supporting concealed carry with 77 percent of the vote.

Also at the meeting, Historic Quincy Business District Executive Director Travis Brown provided copies of the HQBD Annual Report to the aldermen. He said the highlights of the year included hosting the Illinois Main Street Conference and posting a net gain of 16 businesses downtown.
