That may be true Qfingers, but if so why did the (so-called) "superstar finance expert" even take the Illinois job in the first place if she apparently had no intention of trying to come up with some kind of a solution? Remember that airline pilot (Capt. Sullenberger) a while back, who managed to successfully land his crippled plane full of passengers in the middle of the Hudson River (saving a whole…

I wonder how many of these "Free Clinics" Durbin gasses on about he's ever visited for actual healthcare, with his Golden Government (taxpayer supported) insurance. One thing to walk in as a State Senator with the media and entourage to check the service, quite another to be one of the indigent or elderly trying to actually GET service. And, like anything the Government does, it'll…

I noticed that too, GML... and Illinois (if it were to be included among all of the other states that were listed in this case) would have been the furthest east out of all of them. So my first thought was that (maybe) it's purely a geographic issue? Perhaps Illinois falls under the jurisdiction of a different federal court, and not this one located in North Dakota. I honestly don't know,…

The District Seeks Community's Help to Replace American Flags

1 year, 1 month ago by Scott Hardy

Hopes for new flags by September 11th

The District (formerly the Historic Quincy Business District) is seeking the community’s assistance in replacing the American Flags that are displayed throughout The District. The flags are owned by the City, but were purchased by The District in 2012.

“As Independence Day came and went, we noticed that the American Flags throughout The District are becoming more tattered and worn. This doesn’t reflect well upon our City or our patriotism as a community, and we’d like to correct that,” said Executive Director Travis Brown.  

Replacing the flags was not in the City’s budget this year. Therefore, The District is coordinating a campaign to purchase new flags. The goal of this campaign is to raise the funds necessary to replace all the flags within The District (along Maine Street and surrounding Washington Park). “Our intention is to have the new flags delivered and installed prior to September 11th and Veteran’s Day celebrations,” explained Brown.

The District is looking for the community’s support in achieving their goal. The total cost to replace the flags is approximately $1500.00. The District is utilizing their e-commerce site, shopthedistrictquincy.com to collect donations through their “District Store” for anyone wishing to donate online. They will also accept cash or check donations that can be sent to The District, Attn: Flag Donations, 128 North 5th St, Quincy, IL 62301.

“We want to make sure that we are being respectful of our flags, our country, and our veterans and look forward to retiring these flags and replacing them with beautiful flags our entire community can be proud of,” added Brown.
