Were you there after Katrina or some other hurricane? That was a rather unique situation, and many of those billions got poured into the wrong pockets. (and any comparison to the war and famine of Somalia is absurd) That is the problem with throwing ever more billions into education or welfare or any top down political solution. There are always many lined up for political payback, and another…

Just because it's going to be hard to get done doesn't mean it shouldn't be attempted. Anything worth doing is going to be hard. The politicians need to stop worrying about their political futures and concentrate on doing what's right for Illinois and its citizens. Illinois politicians need to take care of the tax payers and quit kowtowing to government sector unions.
pjohnf - Quinn, Rauner use jobs claims as campaign weapons - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Governments or Governors don't create jobs, they can only create an atmosphere for private sector job growth. That means a low tax rate for businesses and less onerous regulations for businesses. The one good thing I saw was a decline in government jobs which is good thing. The unemployment rate is a bogus number as it doesn't truly reflect how many people are really working. What we need…

thanks for the link Not sure why it doesn't come right up with Google. I have to put "qteaparty.com " in for Google to bring it up. Just Qteaparty works for Bing, or even "quincy tea party". Anyway, maybe everyone here can do the search on Google, so the name will start coming up more easily on Google. I'll make it to a meeting one day ... looks like you've had good speakers, but…

If you really think about it, the government must want it this way, otherwise, they would try to change it. Anyway, if you read the comment section of eaglebeaky's post, and mine, you'll see there is much disagreement on how the numbers and stats are figured.

St. Francis breaks ground on $2.9 million Parish Center

3 months, 1 week ago by Bob Gough

A groundbreaking ceremony for the St. Francis Parish Center was held yesterday on the church grounds between College and Lind on 17th street.
 
A Building Toegether in Faith campaign was launched in 2012 to raise $2.9 million for a parish center.  It was the first formal capital campaign for the parish in many years - possibly the first ever.
 
The facility will include spaces for the many activities of the parish that now take place in the church or school.The planned parish will be a two-level facility with a covered drop-off canopy, handicapped entrance, additional parking, large vestibule for fellowship, Vestry, choir room, parish library and other meeting spaces.
The center will be located adjacent to St. Francis Church, near the northwest corner of 17th and Elm Streets. 

Campaign events and requests for pledges and gifts from parishioners and community members began 18 months ago.

Campaign leaders, Fr. Don Blaeser, pastor, Mayor Kyle Moore, and members of the Parish and Fransciscan community participated in the ceremony.
