You two ought to wait until the facts are known before you pass judgment. You have heard of innocent until proven guilty haven't you?

Seeing the gang signs posted on the victims FB pages, I doubt the victims were 100% innocent in what occurred. No one deserves to lose their lives or be shot and the shooter should definitely be prosecuted, but I have a feeling there is more to this story than just an angry man that decided to shoot to kill two people. I don't know the story and neither do most of the people in this judgmental…

thanks for the link. So often though, descriptions of studies lean toward their preferred outcome. 40% is very low correlation, and he even concludes "environmental" factors have much greater influence. He tries to separate that from social factors, but indeed social factors are a big part of it. Interesting they found no genetic link at all in women. I think the early childhood is big, which…

In a truly free society morality is only enforced by the state when there is a victim. Prostitution, gambling, and smoking weed have no victims, hence no crime. Murder, theft and statutory rape have victims, this is why they are crimes.

Quincy School District to seek further input on facilities

1 year, 3 months ago by Bob Gough

The first step task for the superintendent’s steering committee of the Quincy School District is to gather information.

QSD 172 Business Manager Joel Murphy said the 27 member committee has met twice and in the process of putting together a survey to gauge public opinion on how to proceed with new and refurbished buildings.

The survey will ask about grade configuration, financing options, going with new or remodeled buildings and a priority list. Murphy said he hopes to gather 1,500 signatures, which is about 1,000 more than the district used in a survey done last year.

Murphy, who was placed in charge of the committee by Superintendent Steve Cobb, said the district wants input from all members of the community, whether they be teachers, parents or even if they have no current ties with the district.

Cobb said he wants a recommendation from the committee that he can present to the School Board in June. 

The Board also discussed plans to enforce a policy to possibly hold back students who fall behind and do not meet certain reading standards.

The District is considering following the already existing policy with the 2014-2015 school year in grades kindergarten through 8th. .

The policy applies to students in kindergarten through 8th grade.

The Board also approved a resolution to extend the expiration date of the Quincy and Adams County Enterprise Zone to July 1, 2016.

Economic Development officials are in the process of applying for a 25-year extension of the Enterprise Zone with the state of Illinois.
