Not only can you open carry long guns in Houston and Dallas but in the next session of the Texas legislature they will be taking up open carry of hand guns, and it sounds like they have a very good shot at it.

Respectfully I feel like we are beating a dead horse here, I just assumed a consensual search was implied as ok without a warrant. I think we are both right on the Miranda Rights with the exception of having Nothing to do with being arrested. I won't get into the nitty gritty but anyone interested can look here. http://www.mirandarights.org/postarrestquestionin...

Pretty much everything said here. Concealed carry has NOT been implemented for a year. The law was PASSED in July 2013, but the first training didn't start until Oct of 2013, and the first permits didn't come off the presses until something like mid-February of 2014. And that was about 5,000 permits scattered all throughout the state. That was the "look, we're really doing something!"…

Admittedly there are many variables that cause or don't cause crime in Chicago but the fact remains that shootings didn't get worse with C & C and shootings by legal gun owners didn't go through the roof because of it. It's impossible to prove crimes that weren't committed because of C & C but it sure is a amazing coincidence that crime went down with implementation of C &…

Seatbelt enforcement is not unconstitutional as has been proven many times over in the courts. You have no constitutional right to drive a motor vehicle on the public roads of any state in the US. Your use of the roads is conditional on your obeying any law the state you are in puts in place whether you like those laws or not. If MO decides you can only drive GM cars in their state then thats what…

Steigelman set to retire as JWCC vice president

2 years, 4 months ago by Bob Gough

 

John Wood Community College’s vice president of finance said farewell to the Board of Trustees Wednesday night.

Alan Steigelman will retire June 30 following 15 years of service to the College. The search for his replacement is underway and a new VP of finance should be in place in July.

During his report, Steigelman expressed appreciation for the JWCC staff, faculty and board. He has been responsible for JWCC’s business, information technology, physical plant, campus safety and security, bookstore and cafeteria operations. 

During his tenure, Steigelman coordinated the facilities development and funding for JWCC’s Quincy campus at 48th and Harrison and Workforce Development Center at 4220 Kochs Lane. 

Trustees voted to phase out the landscape and turf management program based on low enrollment. Accommodations will be made to ensure that currently enrolled students who have specified that they are seeking a degree or certificate will be able to complete their program.

Preparations for the 2013 budget are still underway and a tentative budget is slated to be presented to the Board in June.  The Board is scheduled to vote on the budget in July.

Trustees also formally acknowledged JWCC Student Government Association officers for 2012-2013.  They are as follows: Bryce Moore of Quincy, president; Morgan Roberts of Quincy, vice president; Lindsay Hall of Liberty, secretary; and Kelsey Busen of Mt. Sterling, treasurer. 

Board members recognized Meredith Brinkman of Fowler for her service as the 2011-2012 Student Trustee. Brinkman and Bradley Craigmyle of Quincy were recognized for being among a select group of Illinois community college leaders named to the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society All-Illinois Academic Team.

The Board also accepted $25,810 in grant funding from the Illinois Board of Higher Education for the Illinois Cooperative Work Study Program.  The program provides partial funding for employers who hire JWCC students for internships. 

JWCC Public Relations provided information for this report.
