He says it's due to how the email program is set up.<br /><br />“The way the computer works, it may list me as the administrator for the program.&nbsp; And that's why you're seeing it like that.&nbsp; But I'm not cc'd on any of those emails,” Mihelich said.<br /> Wed, 15 Jan 2014 14:24:38 +0000 Lee Strubinger 16959 at http://wuis.org Springfield Aldermen Question Email Change Panhandling Suit Filed In Springfield http://wuis.org/post/panhandling-suit-filed-springfield <p>Springfield is defending its policies on panhandlers after a new lawsuit accused the city of violating free-speech rights by barring panhandlers from asking for money. &nbsp;<br>The suit filed on behalf of panhandlers this week in federal court says police wrongly tell panhandlers that what they're doing is illegal.&nbsp; Springfield's ordinance is a bit confusing.&nbsp; It prohibits vocal requests for money, but allows someone to hold a sign making a similar request.&nbsp; The city passed the measure back in 2007 for the downtown area.</p> Wed, 04 Sep 2013 19:28:35 +0000 Associated Press and WUIS 8355 at http://wuis.org Panhandling Suit Filed In Springfield
