db1998 - Shooting near 8th and York - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Let's just hope that certain people aren't involved. Like the mother of a little boy that was murdered last spring. Her name was all over the scanner this morning. That would be a sad little circle if she was somehow involved in this. She has a black car, and lives right where the car was stopped. hopefully we have come a little farther in life than that. Please.
WarCry - Seven Dead, 34 Hurt In Weekend Shootings In Chicago - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Chicago no longer has the toughest gun laws in the country. Regarding handguns, they have the same laws as the rest of the state. That was part concealed carry law in 2013, eliminating "home rule" laws regarding handguns. It doesn't matter, though, because regardless of what gun laws are in place or not, it's still illegal to shoot people in almost all circumstances.

"Tree scape". A fiscal conservative would at least postpone an elective expense like this. Time to re-build cash reserves, then prioritize.
GuyFawkes10 - Senate takes rare Sunday votes, but real drama is GOP leaders\' rebuke of Cruz - Quincy, IL News - Q
One of he few that stands up for what he believes. I don't think any want to take him on head to head but hide behind the procedural rules. Senate is a joke with McConnell, no better than Reid. He lied to get re elected in his state so why would Senate be different?
pjohnf - McConnell Angers Conservatives By Blocking Defunding Planned Parenthood, Kate’s Law - Quincy,
Makes one wonder if McConnell is a republican or the new democrat Harry Reid? McConnell apparently supports the baby butchers, illegal alien criminals, crony capitalism through E/I bank and obstructive legislative leadership. In other words, nothing has changed in congress with the GOP in charge.

The estate of Arlene T. Middendorf will help support the QND Foundation's endowment

Quincy Notre Dame Foundation received a bequest from the estate of Arlene T. Middendorf in excess of $340,000 to support the Foundation’s endowment.

The QND Foundation operates to financially support Quincy Notre Dame High School by bridging the gap of what it costs to educate a student and what is charged for tuition. Funding also provides financial assistance to students.

"We are tremendously blessed that Arlene made a lasting gift to Quincy Notre Dame. We are indebted to the Middendorf family for the generosity shown investing in the future of QND," said Kurt Stuckman, executive director of the QND Foundation. “Gifts like these are transformational and enable QND to be proactive for the benefit of our students.”

Middendorf was born on February 22, 1928, in Quincy and was the daughter of Frank and Leon (Meyer) Middendorf. She attended and graduated from St. Francis Solanus Grade School, Notre Dame High School, and St. Louis University.

She was employed as secretary at the former Middendorf Lumber Company on 3rd and Delaware. After it was destroyed by fire, the company moved to 6th & York Streets as Mid’s, Inc. where she continued as secretary until 1985. Middendorf was a devoted member of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church.

She passed away on March 4, 2012, and was survived by her brother, Carl, his wife, Rita, sister-in-law, Mary Ann Middendorf, and many other devoted family members.
