I only need to do one thing to get ready for 8 more years of Clintons. Buy a new oven - I am no longer nimble enough to get my head in the one I have now. But I agree that I don't want Christy on the ticket either.
LNeck2012 - Mann not seeking re-election to Quincy City Council - Quincy, IL News -
Good to hear. Talk about a waste of space, Mann needed to go. Maybe a couple others on that list will be voted off.
qfingers - JWCC proposes levy increase - Quincy, IL News -
This is a 3.46% increase in the levy. Given they had a $600,000 decrease in the budget...and a 6.8% increase in tuition and fees...and a 4% projected decrease in hours (the increase in tuition should make up for this plus paying instructors less)....I don't quite see how the levy increases...can't seem to find the JWCC budget
