Obama attacking a problem that doesn't exist. It's just another power grab by the tyrant Obama, whose sole goal is to destroy America. There is no climate change, there is no global warming, it's all a lie. You climate change alarmists are hypocrites if you aren't living in a cave and riding a bicycle.

QuincyGuy - Shields leaves QND before even starting - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Everywhere Shields coached, he left a program that was continued by his predecessors. Like him or not, you don't find many coaches with a record like his. I've watched him coach over the years and he does know the game and teaches it to his players well. You can't blame anyone for wanting to earn a living for himself and family. What was normal 30 years ago isn't today. Believe…

Does this surprise ANYBODY? Many people stated publicly that this wasn't a good fit from the minute Shields was hired. As a matter of fact, Matt Schuckman said months ago that he wouldn't be surprised if Shields left QND before he ever coached a game there. Good call, Schuck....

Mayor forms task force to try to keep Quincy Compressor

1 year, 2 months ago by Bob Gough

Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore said he has put together a group of local and state officials to put together a plan for Quincy Compressor to keep its Quincy plant open.

Last week, the company announced it was closing the Quincy facility and moving the jobs to the company's headquarters in Alabama. There are 152 employees at the Quincy plant. 

Moore called keeping Quincy Compressor in Quincy his top priority. He said he has spoken with the company's president and plans to meet with him when he's in Quincy next week. 

Moore said the task force consists of representatives of the City Council, Great River Economic Development Foundation, Machinists Local 822, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, State Sen. John Sullivan and State Rep. Jil Tracy. 

Moore said he is hoping the task force can put together a package of incentives. 

In other action, aldermen approved the hiring of Stacey O'Brien as the City's Director of Human Resources. O'Brien comes from John Wood Community College and will start working for the city on June 23.

"The work in local government is meaningful and challenging and presented me with an opportunity for personal job satisfaction as well as a chance to make a difference in my own backyard," O'Brien said. "Employees in public service see the results of their efforts reflected in the daily lives of its citizens from infrastructure and safety to police and fire protection to transportation. I want to be a part of that effort, to serve in a position where I can use my knowledge and experience to provide internal support and guidance to employees who are working together to make our city a wonderful place to live."

Aldermen also approved a 40 year lease of the ground where the spec building at Quincy Regional Airport sits. ASL Properties is buy the building from GREDF and other partners. The lease with the City had to be final before the building could be sold.
