Agreed 100%, DukeOfQuincy!!! I know that I'm likely in the minority on this matter when I say this (because Mike Flynn is an inexplicably-popular alternative to Darin LaHood or any of the other hopefuls)... but I believe that there should absolutely be some sort of a residency requirement for political candidates. (It really wouldn't be THAT much of an imposition to merely require that…
qfingers - Is \'thug\' the new N-word? Debate rages over language - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Of all the things to worry about from any side of this situation semantics seems like a "How can I add fuel to the fire" statement instead of being anything constructive at all. The tortured response from Baltimore's mayor was really ridiculous...apologized for calling them thugs and failed to offer any other term other than tortuous multi-word description. From dictionary.com noun 1. a cruel…

jungle65 - Quincy Fire Station #6 set to shut down - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
How about the Mayor taking away the aldermen insurance, no one should be getting insurance for the hours they put in or how about cutting the number of aldermen in half? This would allow the fire station to remain open which is way more important than the aldermen and may allow for both QFD and QPD to add some bodies!

St. Francis breaks ground on $2.9 million Parish Center

St. Francis breaks ground on $2.9 million Parish Center

1 year 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.
