Since court action has already been filed, I think the government should butt out now and wait for the court decision. As is now the situation seems ripe for some major "grandstanding" by both sides as both try to attain the higher "moral" ground. I will be keeping a barf bag handy.

And to boot that idea assumes the master's degree somehow makes them "better" teachers. I really have to wonder if that is supported by any facts at all. It's teacher attitude that helps drive student performance...not teacher aptitude. If I look back on my favorite teachers (that I think taught me the most) not a one had a master's degree.

City to look for ideas for the site

With the rubble of the Newcomb Hotel removed and replaced with a barren lot of dirt, City officials now have a blank canvas for development to offer...for a price.

The City of Quincy will seek suitors for the now vacant lot at 5th and Maine that used to be the home of the Newcomb Hotel.

At tonight’s City Council Finance Committee meeting, the Committee voted to seek requests for proposals to gauge interest in the property.

Committee members wanted to have a way to measure the worth of the property via appraisals. City Planner Chuck Bevelheimer estimated the value at around $180,000 based on square footage comparisons to other downtown properties.

The City is looking to recoup some of the more than $1,000,000 lost following the defaulted loan by Victor Horowitz of Skokie and the cleanup costs associated with the fire and subsequent demolition of the building.

Mayor Kyle Moore has said the money the city receives from the sale of the property will go back into the TIF fund, which paid for the demolition costs.
