The only ridiculous drivel I've read here is you trying to justify this action by saying that both Republican and Democratic Presidents have acted unlawfully in the past. Please cite an example of a previous executive order that decreed ignoring laws on the books. Also do you really think Strawman can "incite discontent and perhaps violence"? After reading this opinion the thought of going home…

The ground shuttle would only kick in when needed at end of year and would not cost much for a few weeks. Maybe there are rules but wouldn't city employees with business in StL be counted as enplanements? I also think this is a wasteful gov subsidy but at same time the benefit is there and to let it slip away for want of 200 enplanments would almost be derelict in duty of city fathers. What if…

I understood what he was saying, Migraine... respectfully I am just saying that a "solution" like that probably wouldn't work, for several reasons. First, there's almost certainly a rule against it; EAS serves a purpose, but it has been widely criticized as being wasteful spending for years now (therefore, I doubt that the practice of letting the city game the system by buying up the excess…

Quincy High School suspends 50 seniors following prank

Quincy High School suspends 50 seniors following prank

6 months, 1 week ago by Bob Gough

Students are out of school until Tuesday and not allowed to participate in extra-curricular activities

On the heels of senior prank that has nearly 40 Highland (Mo.) High School students being held out of graduation, some Quincy High School students decided to pull a stunt themselves.

"There was a student prank at 9 a.m. this morning involving approximately 50 students," said QHS Principal Danielle Edgar. "We are addressing this with student disciplinary consequences."

There are approximately 455 seniors in this year's QHS graduating class.

The students involved were dismissed from school at midday and are suspended until Tuesday. 

"When a student is out-of-school suspended, he/she is excluded from extra-curriculars for the length of the suspension," Edgar said in a follow-up response to a question from Quincy Journal. 

Edgar did not elaborate on what the students did. One parent of a suspended student described it as "Students left their classrooms and ran hallways with Silly String," the parent said in a text message to Quincy Journal. "Some left the building then came back...chaos and disturbance." 

Weekend activities some seniors could miss if they were involved include QHS baseball games on Friday and Saturday, QHS softball games on Friday and Monday, the District Track meet and the Choir and Jazz Band Pops Concert on Sunday,
