Well, I stand corrected now that I realize how important and successful you've been throughout your career. ;>) If you'll come down to earth some you may find that we small locally owned companies with say ...... 15 or fewer employees ...... don't have the luxury of certain resources to make interviews and such a cheap venture. Our time is big money to many of us and wasting those…

No, these days we start with Google search and Facebook to find out everything we can about a prospect. Then we interview, and only once we've identified someone as a potential new-hire, we have them fill out an app and do a background check.

Although in principle I am against the laws that he was violating, the fact remains that even after being told to stop, he did not. It wasn't really all that long ago that he was willfully breaking the law. That doesn't speak well to his honesty or character. Oh, and those supposed many people who want to vote but can't get to a polling place? Bull. If you want to vote, you'll…

I can't find anything about a school. I have asked around over the past few days and was told Webster School. Some thought the caller meant the JCPenny building. Either way, doesn't sound like someone that needs to be in a place with important documents.

Family business closing after 134 years

After more than 130 years in business in Downtown Quincy, Geo. Keller & Sons will be closing in July.

A company spokesman said the business had been experiencing a steady decline for years.

"It is sad to make the announcement of the company's closing after over 134 years," said Kris Keller. "The four generations of Keller’s and the many employees of the company have made a permanent mark in the history of Quincy. We would like to thank all of the customers and employees of the company who have made it possible for our family to be in business in the Quincy area for so many years."

George Keller opened the business in 1880 and has operated from Ninth and Maine since 1882.  At its peak, it was a John Deere implement dealer along with sell seed and fertilizer for farms and gardens,  including its trademark “K-Brand” seeds.

Keller’s four sons continued the business and Arthur, Jr. operated it until his death in 2007.

Keller employs 21 people.
