Just one more racist know-it all. So sad.

As the parent of QND grads and a QND alum myself and the parent of current QHS students, I can say that the biggest advantage that QND supplies to its graduates is the intangible "cache" attached to a private school education. College admissions and job recruiters look at and react to the private school education differently than they do to a public school education. This is not without good reason…

It seems pretty obvious his point was, business "A" trying to make a living is interfering with the city of Quincy to do a cheaper job so to make things "fair" we will just make it illegal to do business with anyone other than us. Seems kind of tyrannical in a way, which to me goes against the principals of the constitution.

The District Seeks Community's Help to Replace American Flags

1 month, 2 weeks 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.
