I also just wanted to add... I've got a family member residing at the Veterans' Home and thankfully, it seems that the facility IS taking this situation extremely seriously (along with the county Health Dept, and the state's Dept of Veterans' Affairs).

Exactly! Gov. Perry is the perfect analogy. (My first thought was Fred Thompson, a few years back. Lots of people were practically begging Thompson to throw his hat into the ring... and then once he did, they acted all indifferent about his candidacy and didn't back him. It was very odd.) I was watching something on TV yesterday morning, where they were discussing the possibility of Biden…

Amtrak corridor group meets in Quincy

Amtrak corridor group meets in Quincy

1 year, 5 months 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.
