In those ICCC conferences, one old retired scientist was saying if you give him a couple variables he can draw an elephant from the data, give him three and he can make its tail wag.

Even more insane when they don't…

Your claim that there has been no warming for 18 years is absolutely false. It's a common misconception among those denying global warming and its based on an over-reliance on surface air temperatures and requires you to totally ignore the total heat content of the Earth. When you account for the heat content of the oceans, ice, atmosphere, etc., you see that the heat content of the planet has…

The crimes you listed all have victims, that's why they are and should continue to remain punishable. The guy smokin pot isn't hurting anyone, so no victim combined with proven failed policy, just like prohibition and just like gun control is my logic.

Park Board to put new Wavering Aquatic Center question on the ballot

1 year, 1 month ago by Bob Gough

The board hopes to have an April 2015 referendum on the ballot

The Quincy Park District will ask the voters if they should build a new Wavering Aquatic Center.

At Wednesday night's Park Board meeting, Commissioners looked over the potential costs for a new pool and says they would study different options before decided how large of a facility to ask the voters to fund.

The board hopes to have an April 2015 referendum on the ballot 

The quesiton would be on the April 2015 municipal election ballot and would ask taxpayers to allow the Park District to raise its debt limit from $3.3 million.

Park Board President John Frankenhoff said the Board believed that would be fair because that is the same election where Park Board Commissioners would be on the ballot. 

Wavering Pool was built in 1982. To replace it as is would cost about $2.6 million. 

Commissioners also voted 6-1 Wednesday night to discontinue the practice of allowing themselves free use of Park District faciilities. 

Chris Hogge was the lone commissioner to vote to continue the policy. Last month, commissioners debated the issue and Tom Ernst argued to continue the policy. But Ernst, who frequently utilized a free pass at Westview Golf Course, voted with the majority to end it saying it was "the right thing to do." 

Before that vote, a vote to allow commisioners to have 10 free uses of facilites annually failed by a 5-2 vote. 

The Board also looked at options for a potential $2.1 million Lincoln Park near the Park District Office on Bonansinga Drive. The plans will go before the public next month, but there is no funding stream identified for the project.
