Yeah...maybe they were "inappropriate" jokes. Why don't we go though all Al Sharpton's emails and President Obama's? Think we might find an inappropriate joke or two in there? Actually don't have to look at emails...just look at what they say. EVERYBODY HAS BIAS AND PREJUDICE....it's DISCRIMINATION that you have to avoid. I don't think it's quite time for the…

One question: Who were the 'authorities' responsible for okaying the re-open after the first time, when later in the evening Kelly's had the same problem? Whoever that 'responsible' authority is needs also to be held accountable.

Two of the four Republicans running for Illinois governor made Sunday stops in Quincy in a final push to bolster votes before Tuesday’s primary.

Bruce Rauner, considered the front-runner in many polls, stopped in at Kelly’s Tavern, 2902 Broadway, to press the flesh with patrons who had either finished the morning’s Kelly’s Fun Run or were celebrating St. Patrick’s Eve…or both.

Rauner told reporters before he entered the pub that his message was resonating.

“We’ll term-limit ourselves at 8 years because that’s what the voters want,” Rauner said. “Quincy is suffering from the bad economic policies of Pat Quinn. He’s driven up taxes and spending. He’s hurting schools and the economy.”

Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale and his running mate, State Rep. Jil Tracy of Quincy, flew into Quincy Regional Airport as part of a statewide fly-around. They had former Governor Jim Edgar in tow.

Edgar had endorsed Dillard, who served as the former governor’s chief of staff.

“(Dillard) has the ability to work across party lines...with Democrats," Edgar said. "The Legislature is going to be controlled by Democrats for many decades. We need someone to work with Democrats, not go to war with them."

Dillard said all the polls show he is surging.

"I'm the only candidate who can beat Pat Quinn," Dillard said. "The rest of these folks can't. He's not a push over. I'm the best to govern when I get there and...the Western Illnois region will be in the forefront and not Forgottonia."
