I have as much to give thanks for as the Native Americans (not Indians) did when the pilgrims (white man) egotistically sailed over and proceeded to make the natives dependent upon alcohol so as to instill complacency while they raped their women, proceeded to steal their land, and graciously move then unto reservations and profit off casinos. These white men whom stole the native's land, now…

Is it possible that law enforcement receive 'bonus kickbacks' for certain types of arrests or busts, not unlike monetary offerings and vacations given to doctors/psychiatrists by pharmaceuticals reps for pawning off drugs on patients. That type of unethical corruption couldn't really exist?

Soon Darren Wilson will be resigning. Which is likely in the best interest of his safety, not to mention, the respectful thing to do. He may wish to consider complete reconstructive surgery rendering him unrecognizeable ala Casey Anthony. Many targets will likely be painted upon him by remaining embittered prior protestors.

Has anyone seen the Michael Douglas film "Falling Down"? I always felt it sad that William Foster (Douglas) was shot by Martin Prendergrass (Robert Duvall), and not the other way around. All he did was draw a colored water pistol. Anyone could have been able to discern such. The over zealous authoritative ego had to bring him down so that he'd never get to see another of his daughter's…

The number required to do away with sales tax is an additional 15% on top of what we already pay. So it would be 22.75%. http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/consi... And the universal rebate would make it progressive so it's really not too bad an idea if we can get rid of the IRS in…

Mayor holds second town hall in first year

7 months ago by Bryan Nichols

Light crowd has few questions at forum

A couple dozen people along with city officials attended Mayor Kyle Moore's second community-wide town hall at the Kroc Center on Tuesday night. Few asked questions though those who spoke up expressed support for the Mayor.

Moore detailed things he had accomplished in his first year in office, noting he is just a few weeks away from completing his first year. He said there were challenges such as the Newcomb Hotel fire and hydropower, but he was looking forward to the next few years.

"A lot of the problems that a first year mayor has need to be taken care of, but then after that, we can start focusing on some of the things we talked about in the campaign."

Moore said the Quincy Scorecard was in use and he unveiled a five year infrastructure plan, showing those in attendance a map of planned projects based on current funding.

Moore also went through the budgeting process that has been playing out over the last few weeks at council meetings. He also said that the city is continuing to go after a port project but is going to have to take a different approach to get a needed federal grant to fund the project.

He said hundreds of people have been engaged at the various forums throughout the year and anyone is welcome to call him at his office

RT @John Sexton: Yesterday, Ezra Klein insinuated Wilson was lying. Vox's top story. Thousands spread it. Later Klein acknowledged he was wrong. Oops!
