I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

Kevin Meyer to take over state power

Quincy Notre Dame announced that head basketball coach Eric Orne has stepped down. 

Orne's teams had a record of 363-77 over 14 years with three state titles and six state trophies overall.

Orne will remain as associate athletic director and head softball coach. Orne said he also is in charge of the school's facilities and transportation and will be very active in that as QND will unveil its artificial turf field in August. 

"Both professionally and personally, other avenues have opened up in my life and right now is a great opportunity to explore those and step back from girls basketball," Orne said. "We have a lot of things with the capital improvements here that I am overseeing." 

"I got to be the road manager for a rock band that was full of superstars," Orne said of the young ladies he coached. "These girls realized the assist was as important as the basket." 

Kevin Meyer will take over as girls basketball coach. He will be the 12th coach in the program's history. 

"At the end of the day, the nationwide search is right here," Athletic Director Bill Connell said this morning regarding Meyer's selection.

Meyer thanked Orne and said he had big shoes to fill. 

"Over the last four or five years...Eric has done an incredible job of preparing me to run this program," Meyer said. "The kids know what to expect. I've been blessed to be able to have input and be more of an associate head coach than an assistant head coach. It's a challenge, but it is an exciting challenge."

EDITOR'S NOTE: Quincy Journal had a camera issue during Meyer's portion of the news conference. That's why the QND logo is over him. We apologize.
