Dave you are 100% wrong, there's always been someone in charge of employees. In not Spring fan by any stretch, but that's exactly what I mean when I say being blinded by one sided politics just opens you up to being screwed by a party you thought you could trust. Everyone needs to open their eyes and think independently. Unfortunately Moore pays the good ole boy system as well as the best…

With all due respect, this article has nothing to do with poor people with disabilities. It's about making a specific law, that will be called upon (by Democrats) every time voter "suppression", no matter how insignificant or innocent, occurs, and will be held up to show how Republicans and/or conservatives are trying to disenfranchise voters. All the while the illegal voting will continue, by…

beaky- I knew that! O.K. In the State of llinois, one is given the opportunity, FREELY, and FREE of charge, because of public education, to obtain a drivers license, by way of drivers education. ALL students are advised that this not only prepares them as a driver, but also allows then to REGISTER TO VOTE at the DMV when they turn 18, and to BECOME AN ORGAN DONOR. (Both of these are near and dear to…

Advocacy Network for Children will hold its annual fundraising event on February 22, 2014 at The Ambiance, 5225 Kochs Lane, Quincy.  The event begins at 6:00 p.m. with a “Passport/Travel” theme.  This is a fun evening with no program or solicitation.  Throughout the evening there will be games, a silent auction and live auction.   Local businesses and volunteers donate their time and merchandise for this event.  The dollars raised through this event will help with day-to-day operating costs of Advocacy Network for Children which provides advocacy for abused and neglected children in nine of the counties in West Central Illinois.  For a partial list of the items for auction at the dinner go to our website at www.advonet.org.

The Advocacy Network for Children provides two distinct programs for abused and neglected children in our community.  The CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) program recruits, trains and supervises volunteers to speak in the best interest of abused and neglected children in the juvenile court system. Last year, almost 200 children were represented by CASA volunteers in Adams and McDonough Counties.

 The Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) provides a child-friendly, neutral environment where the child victims of sexual abuse or severe physical abuse and their non-offending family meet with law enforcement, Department of Children and Family Services and State’s Attorney for the purpose of investigation.  The Children’s Advocacy Center coordinates the investigation and provides a variety of advocacy and support to the child victim and non-offending family.  Children’s Advocacy Center staff helps bridge the gap between social services, law enforcement, and the court system. The Children’s Advocacy Center program served over 300 children in 2013.
