Let's assume the stats are accurate as Vyan presents them. Two things: 1. Vyan realizes he has a weak case and thus reverts to the sophomoric argument (as in high school sophomore) that he's not wrong because you can't prove that "black fathers have abandoned their children." He can still say black fathers aren't THAT absent. 2. Another look at the stats - 100 black kids, 100 white…

Wish you could set up a meeting with Boehner's new puppet and Flynn. I don't understand why anyone from Quincy can vote for LaHood and this should just prove it.

If your share and my share are the same of the debt in IL, (think 111 billion just for pension), then I move. Do you think your share went up a little? What if I move my business because I can? Think your share went up a little more? I think IL is losing population faster than most states, except illegals. They will certainly take up the slack of baby boomers and millionaires moving out.

Amtrak corridor group meets in Quincy

Amtrak corridor group meets in Quincy

1 year, 2 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.
