eaglebeaky - \'Interview\' pulled after threat; U.S. says North Korea behind Sony hack - Quincy, IL News - Quincy
Well said, whiner1!!! Somebody at Sony Pictures Entertainment was desperately trying to be edgy and topical when they approved the production of The Interview (in spite of the fact that the creators of South Park already poked fun at North Korea a decade ago). Truth be told, the screenplay for The Interview probably should have found its' way into the trash can a long time ago. No theater owner…

A public figure that did a good job mixing things up. I did not agree with him many times, but glad he was there to balance the board(he really does love the sound of his own voice). It is important to know when to exit the stage, I think he is doing that at the right time.

New lighting will be installed at the Oakley Lindsay Center next month

9 months, 4 weeks ago by Jim Dewey

Cost will be around $72,000

During the February monthly meeting of the Oakley Lindsay Center Board -
Executive Director Rob Ebbing reported that lighting upgrades in the
McClain/Kent expo hall are moving forward.

After conducting a lighting study it was determined that existing lighting
fixtures can be replaced one for one with LED light fixtures which can be
controlled individually or by groups wirelessly.

Partial funding for the project is coming from 2 grants which Ebbing
initially expected would pay for about half of the expected $100 thousand
cost.

But the low bid from Springfield Electric came in at $72,424.56.

The Civic Center's share of the cost, about $16 thousand, will come from the
bond budget.

In addition to saving about 60 percent on electricity in the Expo Hall -
Ebbing says the lighting will also save labor.

With the current lighting, anytime a customer wants lights to be brighter or
dimmer, someone has to use a cherry picker and physically unplug or re-plug
the lights.

With the new lighting, that can be done from a computer, I-Pad or smart
phone.
