Thanks, but IntenseDebate functions are outside of Quincy Journal functions and operations. :) BG

I'd take Biden any day over someone who says things so ridiculous that when satire sites like National Report does an article stating she was on Fox News saying that Mexicans need to get on the boat they came in on and go back home, it sounds 100% believable.

I'm certainly open to being proven wrong on that point. More importantly: I just got my first IntenseDebate email notification of a reply to a comment. New feature? Or does it just come through when QuincyJournal replies to a comment. Because it's great. Makes it easier to follow debates.

C'mon. People in these types of jobs move all of the time and their employers know their people are always going to be looking for the next rung up. Many universities give full disclosure of this process. It absolutely does not affect the quality of candidates. Sadly, it has always been the way business is done in Quincy. Kudos to John Wood for providing access to their candidates when they…

Absolutely. Imagine the number of highly qualified candidates who didn't want their current employers to know they were looking for a new opportunity. This is stupid. Don't worry Louisiana: next time you need to hire a president for LSU, you'll get a fraction of the the resumes. All from unemployed folks and internals. Because the President of some other school doesn't need you…

Budget is $36,000 higher with 3 percent pay increases for all full-time employees

Members of the Oakley Lindsay Civic Center Board got a first look at the 2014-15 budget Wednesday.

The $1.83 million budget is about $36,000 higher than last year and includes a 3 percent pay raise for all full time employees of the civic center.

Executive Director Rob Ebbing said one additional full time employee has been hired. "We've had to actually increase our number of full time employees just because of the new laws," Ebbing said.

Because the Affordable Care Act requires employees working a certain amount of hours be covered with health insurance, Ebbing said a part time job has been upgraded to full time. 

New LED lighting has been installed in the civic center which Ebbing said will save money in a couple of ways. Ebbing said the new lighting will save up to 60 percent in the cost of utilities alone, but they will also save on labor costs. In the past, if someone hosting an event wanted some of the lights to be on and some off, an employee would have to use a scissors lift and go up to each individual light and turn it off.  And changing the lighting during an event was not possible. Once the new lights are programmed next week - they will be individually controlled through the internet and can be operated with an I-pad, lap-top or cell phone. 

Ebbing also noted that the OLC is gearing up for another Quincy Gems season.  In the last month, another potential owner has inquired about buying the team.  All five potential buyers have plans to keep the team in Quincy. Ebbing is hopeful the team can be sold after the coming season which opens at the end of May.
