I think Carl is on his last legs and will be gone - none too soon. As for Dick M - finding out why he got ousted falls in the category of looking a gift weasel in the mouth. I will take this opportunity to repeat my creed - there is no such thing as a wasted vote if you vote for what you believe in.

So, those of using private haulers, who have been subsidizing garbage pick up for years for those who chose to use stickers, now get to pay even more? This isn't going to end well for the Kyle administration.

Been saying this for a couple years now, and I really heard about it last election cycle because I voted for Grimm instead of one of our two Chicago choices. Keep the faith, we're never gonna get a good candidate untill we start to peel off the "I voted for the lesser of two evils" cowards, and get them on our side. I always wondered why Dick Morris lost his job at FOX (as he should have)…

I have been thinking the same thing, is there a $1000 tax in the works for UPS, FedEx and DHL? Maybe the Federal Government should take a page out of this administrations play book and levy a tax on their competitors trucks. and I am with you on the list of customers, that seems to be serious overreach on the part of any government. The s**t storm of the city rejecting privatization just keeps…

The District Seeks Community's Help to Replace American Flags

5 months, 1 week 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.
