Why is it necessary to keep showing a killer police mug shot? If you need a picture why not show the dead victim, 12-year-old Ray Humphrey Junior. The least we see of this scum the better.

Haha I feel like your giving me one of those "it depends on what your definition of the word is is" defenses. I'll admit this, you got the "not gonna take me down" spirit of a politician caught in a pickle. Unfortunately the integrity of a politician comes with it.

Polygamy is more natural in Nature then Monogamy. (Science & Nature) There is NO homosexual species in nature It would be between consenting adults It is a Religious custom in some religions (1st Amendment)- in the Constitution (nothing in constitution about gay marriage) So that would make it more NATURAL and Legal then the recent ruling.

The Joe Bonansinga Community Service Award is awarded annually by the United Way of Adams County and the Quincy Rotary Club

The 2014 Joe Bonansinga Community Service Award was presented Tuesday afternoon to Michael Klingner - President of Klingner and Associates by the United Way of Adams County and the Quincy Rotary Club. In accepting the award Klingner - deflected the honor to the community of Quincy which he noted has a history of community service dating back to its sheltering of Mormons and its history as a major stop on the Underground Railroad up to more recent events such as the floods of 1993 and 2008 where Quincy became a hub of sandbag filling activity for the surrounding area. 

Klingner said he is "very proud of the things that we've accomplished as a community through history and certainly more recently." "it's humbling to receive this kind of award," he said, "because so many people deserve it." 

Klingner, whose business takes him to a number of communities across the Midwest said there is something about any community that says a lot for that community. "You can kind of tell by the people that are in the community, the kind of support that they have and just the upbeat feeling."  Klingner said that Quincy always conveyed that feeling, "that people are proud of the community.

Klingner was recognized for his leadership roles in causes that span healthcare, financial stability, youth development, business development, environmental sustainability, Quincy historic preservation efforts, church and recreation.

Joe Bonansinga, for whom the honor is named, was presented with the first award in 1998.
