No differently than anybody else's....really???? If he didn't orchestrate it than it's the police chief or a senior police officer who overreacted. This is, of course, assuming the 7 officers response team is true. And if the warrant was about twitter seems to me the marijuana charge will have to be dropped as it's "fruit ot he poisonous tree" isn't it?

qfingers - City/Firefighters labor contract must be voted on again - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Super majority only required if the mayor "vetoes" an item (Code 2.106). A pretty rare occurrence (has it ever happened here?) You can always re-vote a failed item if you want to. Not done very often though. In this case the resolution never passed or failed since no majority of elected members occurred either way. Not passing is not the same as disapproval.

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.
