We will be paying out millions to each of these people in salary pensions and benefits over their lifetimes. The people who did the hiring need to point the finger at their boss or go to prison. Those who were hired need to be terminated, stripped of their pensions and be barred for life from holding a state or local government job.

"A bigger concern for me is whether these political hacks did any work for the big money they were making?" I believe this falls into the "rhetorical question" category. By definition a political hack can't do any meaningful work - if they could they would have already had a real job.

I am so sick and tired of the inefficiency of our City Council. This garbage "garbage" is a perfect example of business as usual at City Hall. It wasn't long ago that they actually thought it was a good idea to ship these same old trucks all the way across the State of Missouri to have tippers installed on them. Now, all of the sudden, those same trucks are beyond repair and at the end of their…

Not to defend the council, because I think some of them are boneheads, but it's not uncommon for a final price to be lower than budgetary pricing. Often, budgetary pricing is based on an unknown quantity of items and therefore is priced at quantity 1 pricing. Vendors will often sweeten the deal for a larger overall sale or to get the sale made within a certain timeframe.

If it can be contracted out that cheaply, one has to ask why oh why the City is so freaking inefficient at doing it themselves. One only has to drive by a crew of 8 city workers pouring a 8x6 foot concrete patch to understand.

Serves search warrant on one apartment, discovers active meth lab in apartment next door

Three more people are behind bars in Adams County after allegedly making meth in Quincy.

Agents with the West Central Illinois Task Force served a search warrant at 602 N. 5th Street, apartment #5 in Quincy on Wednesday evening.  

Police say they seized methamphetamine and ingredients used in the manufacture of meth during the search of apartment #5.    While they were serving the search warrant, agents also discovered an active methamphetamine laboratory in apartment #6.  

A second search warrant was obtained and methamphetamine and a shake and bake laboratory were reportedly seized in that apartment.  

Arrested at the apartment were Teddy E. Pendleton, 58, of the residence, Michael G. Gundersen, 47, of Quincy and Kaitlyn J. Grawe, 21, of Mt. Sterling.

Pendleton, Gundersen, and Grawe were all arrested for Aggravated Unlawful Participation in Methamphetamine Production  and were transported to the Adams County Jail.  

Additional arrests are expected in the investigation.  

According to Adams County records Pendleton is currently out on bond for Delivery of Meth and is set for an April Jury Trial.  Gundersen was sentenced in November to 24 months probation for Possession of Meth.   
                               
This brings the total number of meth-related arrests in Adams County this week to eight.
