How clever. Is that one of your classroom lessons? Teaching to vent frustrations with personal attacks?

Problem with all of these studies is a lack of strong scientific support in the conclusions. You can't control "for other variables" with any real chance of veracity. We will...on the other hand...have a small experiment here which should give a good indication of the truth of these ideas. Kids in the new schools should perform notably better (11%???) then the ones still stuck in the old ones.…

This means nothing unless it's the E6 number. If it's the E3 number it's a lie. The real unemployment number , E 6, nation wide is close to 12%.

Amtrak corridor group meets in Quincy

7 months, 3 weeks ago by Bob Gough

Discussions include marketing, branding and potential expansion

Quincy served host for this year's Amtrak corridor meeting and officials are looking to the future.

Along with discussion on ridership numbers for the Illinois Zephyr and the Carl Sandburg, the two trains that run between Quincy and Chicago, expansion is on the mind of many of the attendees. 

While links from the line off to the Quad Cities or over to Springfield to hook up with the under-construction high speed rail corridor are possible, Derrick James with Amtrak says funding must be in place.

James says the current ridership numbers between Quincy and Chicago are strong and bode well for the future. 

State Sen. John Sullivan of Rushville said the state budget has $38 million for Amtrak and that is the most the state has ever provided. 

Others attending today's conference in Quincy include Mayor Kyle Moore, State Rep. Jil Tracy, State Sen. Darin LaHood of Peoria, State Rep. Donald Moffitt of Galesburg, State Rep. Norrine Hammond of Macomb and Mayor Mike Inman of Macomb.
