1950Brutus - Too many governments? Downstate has the biggest share - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
One important factor for me is missing from this article. How many politicians/bureaucrats have served time in jail for Cook and Iroquois counties? The question is not only quantity of government but quality of government.
Stupid_Dems - Amending Illinois Constitution a tough path for pension reform - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
You mean they should just keep on footing the bill for every freaking thing? I say the taxpayer has had it! Time to put the goose that lays the golden eggs on a diet. Lets start by cutting our city council and county board in half. Next, every state employee making over $100,000 takes a 10% pay cut. That would be a good start.

Are employees allowed to have their cell phones in the building?? - if so then this is a stupid rule. I doubt the "efficiency" of our government will be impacted much by a cell phone that is turned off.

Selective editing? Please tell me that nobody in the media does that? Oh my gosh....my confidence in the media has been shaken!!! Lots of those around...numerous police videos for example where all you see is the person being taken down and not the reason for the take down.

Theft Austin Creeps reports his black Samsung cell phone taken from where he hid it outside the Adams County Courthouse on 7-16. Maybe the courthouse needs to install a bank of lockers like they have at Scotties: Go in with something you're not supposed to have, like your cell, and you can put in a quarter, lock it up, and grab it on your way out.

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.
