Didn't Hannibal just put in a new school or two? I can't find the story on planned vs. spent, but I don't hear a lot of hollering about cost overruns, etc. I just remember the story with the open house to show off their new, state-of-art facility.

I still think that there is no way they can guarantee that this project is only going to be $89M. Take a look to the North to another huge government sponsored building at Ft. Madison Prison. Years late and 10's of millions in cost over run. There is simply no way that they can promise this won't cost a penny more than $89M and what happens when it does (and it will by a minimum of 15%)?…

The bonds that they're currently talking about retiring were the previous set of bonds to pay for Life Safety repairs. I'm not sure why you don't know this stuff. I know it from reading the QJ articles over the last year or so, so it's not like I have secret insider-info, it sounds like you are - for whatever reason - just willfully ignoring the information that's out there.…

I honestly can't explain it. I'm not on the park board, so you could try asking them. But I'm going to bet the answer sounds something like this: "We can spend a ton of money to repair current problems without gaining any actual improvement to the facility, just patching up the problem spots. Or we can spend a roughly equivalent amount and get a newer facility which will have regular…

I know of what you speak-----the same thing happened to my son in Junior High 35 years ago. Apparently performance wasn't a measurement then, either.

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.
