I did NOT say not to issue Marriage licenses to same sex couples-- THAT is now the law of the land. This argument is about POLYGAMY. The court opened it up. It's anything goes, so Polygamy is a more natural marriage them same sex. So there should be NO Restrictions on marriage, consenting adults after all. Otherwise it's discrimination and if you disagree your a BIGOT. And wait until the…

It's quite possible. Genes do not always inevitably have their effect. The effect could depend upon the environment. I could be carrying and pass along whatever gene(s) necessary for homosexuality to my children even though I'm straight.

So, it is my OPINION that this is wrong in your eyes. Everyone has an opinion and has the freedom to voice their ideas and concerns. You won't see me getting bent out of shape when you express yours, just have the courtesy and freedom to allow me to express mine. There are verifiable instances where scenarios already exists, or have been tried, just look them up. Just saying that a plural marriage…

What's the compelling state interest for not issuing licenses to same-sex couples, and why do you think it's necessary to achieve that interest?

I don't there is a religion that condones "anything goes". Kind of defeats the purpose. So "condoning freedom" is not the goal of most any religion.

City now has parameters for residential swimming pools

The Quincy City Council approved an ordinance updating zoning regulations, including parameters for residential swimming pools.

City Planning and Development Director Chuck Bevelheimer said there were no rules for pools on the books, but with more people having larger, above ground pools, he believed some parameters needed to be set.

Alderman Terri Heinecke (R-7th Ward) asked about the requirements, which requires pools to be set up in backyards. Bevelheimer said the city had received complaints about pools in front yards.

Bevelheimer said homeowners could seek variances if they didn’t have backyards or their backyards were sloped and wouldn’t support a pool.

Along with pools, the ordinance also includes regulations for other residential structures including garages, fences and signs.

The ordinance passed 8-6. Heinecke opposed it along with Virgil Goehl (D-1st Ward), Lexze Mann (R-1st Ward), Mike Farha (R-4th Ward), Tony Sassen (R-4th Ward) and Jim Musolino (R-6th Ward).

Aldermen also received the report of the Quincy Animal Control Commission. The report recommends an increase in the cat license fee and for the city to reinstate a second animal control officer. Click here to read the report.

The report was sent to the Quincy Police Department for review.

The Council also approved the purchase of 1 million trash stickers from Midland Paper for $9.875.
