Live from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, Greg Bishop brings you three hours of live and local liberty-minded talk. Tune in for Bishop On Air from 9 to noon only on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield. Today we'll talk about a mystery from history, Tower of Refuge, the state's budget and the city's budget.
At the beginning of the show from the Lincoln Presidential Library, we'll talk with Daniel Stowell about an interesting mystery of a document having been altered. From a press release:
"The note is scrawled in Abraham Lincoln’s distinctive hand and carries his signature, but little else is clear. When was it written and to whom? What are the views that Lincoln wants to know more about? And, above all, why was a key name cut out of the note?"
We'll talk more about it coming up.
Springfield's city budget
Yesterday Mayor Mike Houston gave his State of the City speech where he talked about the great things he has done so far as Mayor. Joining us from the Presidential Library will be Alderman Joe McMenamin to provide his take on the state of the city. Don't miss this conversation just after 9:30.
Governor Pat Quinn and other statists are screaming doom and gloom and the sky is falling politics if the state was to allow a temporary income tax increase to go away next year as it's supposed to by law. He says the naysayers should put up their own plan. OK!
Can somebody explain to me why the state of Illinois has a Department of Children and Family Services, a Department of Healthcare and Family services, a Department of Human Services, and a Department of Public Health? These are just a few of the agencies in state government that seemingly have some overlap. Check out more state budget craziness here. We'll go through and pretend to slash and combine these and other departments and calculate some potential savings. Someone has to do it!
In the 11 o'clock hour we'll be joined by Sangamon County Board member Andy Goleman and County Board Administrator Brian McFadden. We'll talk about a variety of things from budgets to politics to an interesting post on SpringfieldLeaks.com about employees ditching work. We'll get to it all with Bishop On Air!
We'll talk with Lorenzo Louden from the Tower of Refuge about the work they do to help ex-convicts get back on their feet, unionizing college athletes and more. It's another jam-packed show live from the Lincoln Presidential Library.
