Thanksgiving would be quite the ironic holiday for suicide. Giving a most appreciative thanks for the right to exercise the option to end one's own life. Especially a life in this miserable, barren, cold, old-fashioned Midwest. Performing such an act in the most grotesque, dramatic public fashion, so as to permanently scar the minds of both youth and old alike, having fallen most unfortunate…

Is it possible that you're completely alone on Thanksgiving, and have some sadistic need to offend as many people as possible to draw attention to yourself? Congrats, I noticed you today.

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

7 months, 2 weeks 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.
