I like Kelly's food and atmosphere, but I don't get the fascination everyone has with melted cheese.

Glad to hear that they are back open for business, and that everybody affected is going to be OK. (And yes, after reading this I'll admit I could go for several bowls of their cheese soup, heh heh heh.) If there is any tiny bit of a "silver lining" that can possibly come out of this unfortunate situation, I hope it's that QFD (and the members of the local news media) will take an opportunity…

And again you post, proving your ignorance. Being "raised around" guns proves nothing, and adds to the stupidity of your statements. You addressed none of what I said. It is not a "high-powered" rifle. It is in the .22 caliber category (.223). Most rifles are larger and more high powered. They are used for small game hunting and target, because of that fact, that are a smaller caliber. Cheaper ammo…

Who are you to decide what is necessary? That's a bogus argument as these are not the same weapons and this is about ammo. 30-06 or 223 tell me which is more lethal?

No teachers will be let go for economic reasons next year

The Quincy School Board also made other personnel announcements.

Superintendent Steve Cobb announced Wednesday said no staff cuts for economic reasons would be needed for the next school year as the district would save money through retirements and resignations.

Cobb said the District is looking at 17 retirements and 18 resignations that should save anywhere between $400,000 and $500,000. 

The Board voted to fire John D. Wimsett as a certified special education teacher “for non-economic reasons.” 

The board reached a settlement and received the resignation of William G. Twaddle of the Quincy Area Vocation-Technical Center. The agreement between Twaddle and QSD 172 cites "claims, disputes and matters of controversy" between the two.

Twaddle resigned from QPS on Tuesday and will receive $27,642, which is eight months of his salary through the end of November.
