I also just wanted to add... I've got a family member residing at the Veterans' Home and thankfully, it seems that the facility IS taking this situation extremely seriously (along with the county Health Dept, and the state's Dept of Veterans' Affairs). I got an email from my brother late last night; he had been in touch with various staff and administrators at the Veterans'…

Exactly! Gov. Perry is the perfect analogy. (My first thought was Fred Thompson, a few years back. Lots of people were practically begging Thompson to throw his hat into the ring... and then once he did, they acted all indifferent about his candidacy and didn't back him. It was very odd.) I was watching something on TV yesterday morning, where they were discussing the possibility of Biden…

Thanks for putting the games online. It's kinda too bad that the games take place at the exact same time (I'd like to watch both), but I'll take what I can get. :-)

OLC gets 30-Day Extension on Gems for 2015

OLC gets 30-Day Extension on Gems for 2015

1 year, 1 month ago by Scott Hardy

Prospect League gives OLC until Sept. 1 to get new ownership in place

The Oakley-Lindsay Center has asked The Prospect League for and received a 30-day extension to see if the Quincy Gems will field a team next year.

The league had set an Aug. 1 deadline for Quincy to remain in the league. Rob Ebbing, Gems General Manager and the Executive Director of the Oakley-Lindsay Center, said the extension was needed as final proposals are still coming in from potential buyers.

Ebbing said the League granted the extension. 

The OLC hasn’t received any formal bids. Ebbing said three potential buyers are interested. Two are local and one is from outside of Quincy.

The team was put up for sale last October after losing more than $90,000 during the 2013 season.
