I understand that teacher's do not have opulent salaries but the statement about throwing good money after bad is biased. From what I have heard, the schools are structurally sound. Also, the state should not have tell us what repairs have to be made as they should have been completed as necessary. Doesn't the school district have paid staff to understand the state laws for maintenance…

Rauner doesn't have to tell voters in Cook County to vote. they'll be voting early and often anyway, heck even dead ones vote in Cook county and republicans vote for democrats when using faulty voting machines.

Stolen was a purse, wallet, credit card, iPad, 18-inch TV, GPS, cash, diamond earrings with matching necklace, and sunglasses. Doesn't everyone keep those items on an unlocked car behind your house?

"Spare Change for Real Change" to take place Friday

2 months, 3 weeks ago by Bryan Nichols

Police will collect money at designated intersections for Special Olympics

“Spare Change for Real Change” for Special Olympics Illinois will be held in Quincy on Friday, August 1, 2014.  This event has been a huge success the past three years.  The generosity of the citizens of Quincy is tremendous and we were able to raise over $5,800.00 in just 3 hours with this event in 2013.

Quincy Police Department personnel and volunteers from the Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association will be at the intersections of 18th and State and 24th and Harrison on Friday, August 1st from 7:00-8:30 a.m. and again from 4:00-5:30 p.m. collecting money for Special Olympics Illinois.  We’re asking people to donate their cold hard cash – spare change or the kind that folds (ones, fives, tens, twenties).    While supplies last, in return for their donation, a Torch Run Supporter static window cling will be given to donors to place on their car or home to proudly display their support of the athletes in Illinois!
