  1. I think the last I read was an article that the governor was expected to veto the bill as written in order for the amendment of the date to be put in. Lawmakers hoped it would be vetoed and back before them and back to the governor before the end of September.

    Source … ? But I’ll dig if you want me to.

  2. noway406,
    Gotta tell you, your ability to site information, helpfulness to others on this site, and genuine concern for justice for Stacy and Kathleen is incredible!

    I know there are phone calls going out today to update our status of the heresay bill. I’m certain Danya will have the scoop soon.

    Searching for Stacy continues due entirely to good people trying to do the right thing! Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as the one year anniversary draws near….it does not get any easier. I think I speak for the entire group by saying an arrest can NOT come soon enough.

    Thank you to all who continue to follow this case of Stacy Peterson.

  3. Hey folks, Danya here. I wish I had a better update to give you all regarding the hearsay bill but I don’t have much. I’ve got a call into Wilhelmi’s office but he may not be able to get back to me until tomorrow. To date, the record does not show any further action taken on the bill since it was passed. The governor had asked the bill be sent back to the House and Senate to fix a time issue in the bill, and many thought that would happen in September. The record does not show that either the House or Senate has taken steps to amend the bill and fix the issue, which will affect when the bill would go into effect. I’ll update you all if I hear anything else, but that’s what I’ve got so far. Sorry!

  4. Make no mistake – there’s still plenty of us that follow this site and have genuine concern for justice to be done!!! I make no apologies for disliking Drew Peterson and everything about him, and can’t see any good or find one little thread to hold onto that he’s not done something evil and wrong to both Kathleen Savio and Stacy Peterson.

    He came right out of the gate tearing apart the reputation of Stacy, and hasn’t shown any respect to the memory of Kathleen Savio either. I’ll follow this site until he’s either charged, tried and convicted, or charged, tried and found not guilty, whichever way the jury feels fit to rule!

  5. Don’t worry Jeepers, I think there are still a lot of faithful around.

    Now that Drew and Co. have taken a vow of silence there aren’t as many shenanigans to discuss so it’s been quiet on the boards. I do believe that even those who aren’t posting are still reading and everyone is hoping for justice.

    Please be assured as well that there is still work being done…just in locations a little less public than this blog. 😉

    We’ll never give up!

  6. Well said, Facs!!! That Hearsay Bill has more than one fish to fry, at least in Will County, so I am sure it’s going to get it’s due reward. I hope Brodsky doesn’t think it’s all because of his client. There’s Stebic and Vaughn too, at least the ones that I know of.

  7. Jeepers, Jeepers4, you’re making me blush! 😳

    And as you can see, there are lots of people who want justice for Kathleen and for Stacy. Some post, some just read. But they are here.

  8. For what it is worth, I got a PM from someone on another site (obviously since there is no PMing here). While I guess this could be considered hearsay, I am stating it as if it were fact. 😉

    Her message:

    Just got off the phone with the Governor’s Office in Springfield. I was informed that the Hearsay Bill is still on the governor’s desk. He has until Oct. 7th to either sign it or veto it …

  9. LOL, bureaucratic mumbo jumbo.

    Reading it the way you posted it, Noway, sounds as though it NEVER LEFT his desk and is still there for whatever action he plans on taking.

    Eee gads.

  10. Hi ya, Bucket. I’m wondering (hi to you too, Wonder) if it ever did make it off his desk and back to the legislators for editing, or if it did, instead, stay put on his desk. Hmmmm.

  11. Hiya rescue/noway/wonder/all…..ear scratches all round. There ya go.

    Maybe they don’t want to tip off you know who or rather all- those -they -know -who -they- are. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

  12. Bucket, I’m not sure how the Littlest NoWay feels about having her ears scratched, but I know she likes having her belly scratched — she made me do that to her while my sister was scratching her dog’s belly … 🙄

    Yes, it sounded like the bill was STILL on the governor’s desk and that he had not yet vetoed it, not that it had made the rounds and was BACK on his desk.

  13. I wonder……..Would flooding his office with phone calls inquiring about the status of the bill
    help ? These people are public servants, they answer to the PUBLIC. We are the PUBLIC. Just an idea. I think it’s been done before.

    Hiya Bucket, Facs,Noway & Little Noway,Rescue. Hope everyone is having a fine day today. Well tomorrow is another GJ day.

    I am wondering….Will there be any news at all on what is going on with the GJ tomorrow ?

    Also, anyone know if they can hand down the Bill or No Bill on any day of the week ? TIA

  14. Hiya wonder!

    What’s wrong with this picture? It appears to be tolerated for people to disturb the peace all over the Anthony’s house, yet normal people fret whether or not it would be OK to ask about a bill. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

  15. Due to hurricane Ike the Texas EquuSearch headquarters have been severely damaged. Texas EquuSearch will resume its work as soon as we can recover from damage. Please stand by for further updates.

  17. You are most welcome.

    Bookmark that tinyurl I made for status updates.

    Trial tomorrow Danya said AND Grand Jury?

    No word on Robinson & Carcerano’s court outcomes? I haven’t had time to stalk.

    Carceranos now reside in Downers I’m hearing. Perhaps that had something to do with where he went to court?

    Danya?
    Bueller?
    Anyone?
