SilenceDogood22 - New jail or no new jail? - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com

I've asked before and I will ask again: When/If a new "justice center' is built, will the current jail and police station in town be closed permanently or will both remain open and staffed?

            Four area high school sophomores or juniors will win an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 13-20, 2014, in an annual contest sponsored by Adams Electric Cooperative and Adams Telephone Co-Operative.

            Interested students must complete a short answer application. After reviewing all applications, judges from each cooperative will select up to 34 applicants to represent the cooperatives at Illinois Electric and Telephone Youth Day in Springfield on April 2, 2014. Participants will visit the State Capitol, the old capitol building and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum.

            At the conclusion of Youth Day, judges from the Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives will interview the applicants. Two winners will be selected for each cooperative for an 8-day all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. in June. One alternate will be named for each cooperative incase one of the winners is unable to attend.

            The four winners of Youth Day will spend one week in Washington, D.C., visiting places of historical interest, as well as members of Congress, and getting a firsthand view of our government in action. Students will also learn more about the important role cooperatives play in our nation.

            This year marks the 55th year of the Youth to Washington program. Adams Electric Cooperative has been sending students to Washington, D.C. since 1959. Adams Telephone joined the program in 2004. Today, approximately 2,000 students from 42 cooperatives across the United States meet at our nation’s capital each summer. The 2014 Youth to Washington winners will be announced following Youth Day in Springfield.
