"You don't get indicted on nothing." Tell that to Rick Perry or Tom Delay before him. Innocent people get indicted all the time...not that it applies in this situation or doesn't apply. We don't know the facts that were presented at the hearing and even if we knew what was presented, we don't have the benefit of those facts being challenged. The potential defendent and/or his…
HiDawnG - Abandoned baby calls to mind Safe Haven laws - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
I can't help but believe that if the mother who abandoned this little baby had known about the law, she wouldn't now be being tracked down by the police. The Baby Safe Haven law offers a safe, legal, option for a desperate parent in crisis. The law says a parent hand their unharmed baby, 30 days old or younger, to staff at a hospital, fire or police department. No questions asked. Thanks…

Dick "Pee Wee" Durbin apparently doesn't see taxes as a problem - no mention of it in his statement. Maybe the problem of "jobs that don't pay enough money" would decrease if the taxes that come out of this pay are decreased.

Clerks, recorders, finance workers, comptrollers and Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA officers are some of the primary caretakers of public records and public records requests." This new law should spell big trouble for the Quincy School District. Anybody know what's…

QND gets $340,000 gift

1 year, 1 month ago From QND

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.
