Sure hope all the new folks promise not to suck the public teat of Health insurance and pension plan for a part time job. We taxpayers could save $20,000 for every current alderman we turn out if the new person would swear off the public nipple.

Guy, I AM a travel consultant, and we don't buy tickets from airlines like that - all airline tickets are name specific. The only time we might have a block of tickets is for groups, and those have deposits and deadlines attached to them. So that would not work. I love flying out of the Quincy Airport. Jarred Hester is doing a great job there, but another airline is probably not going to come…

Arbor Day Foundation names Quincy Tree City USA

Quincy achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program's four requirements

Quincy, IL was named a 2013 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.

Quincy achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program's four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.

"Everyone benefits when elected officials, volunteers and committed citizens in communities like Quincy make smart investments in urban forests," said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Trees bring shade to our homes and beauty to our neighborhoods, along with numerous economic, social and environmental benefits."

Cleaner air, improved storm water management, energy savings and increased property values and commercial activity are among the benefits enjoyed by Tree City USA communities.

More information on the program is available at http://www.arborday.org/TreeCityUSA.
