Perhaps...but once the FAA says it's needed you probably shouldn't wait for what is a routine maintenance task.

I, for one, am tired of the media portraying the Ray Rice case as an issue of men abusing women. I haven't heard ANY of the talking heads mention that Janay struck Ray. That is domestic violence as well. I am not excusing Ray or blaming Janay. What I am tired of is domestic violence being portrayed as a MAN problem. Nurmerous studies have proven that domestic violence is perpetrated as often…

We only have ourselves to blame for a large part of this problem. For some reason we insist on putting people who can shoot a basketball, or carry a football, or hit a baseball 450 feet on a pedestal. This alone is not deserving of respect. The only difference between them and us is how much money they make. Money can’t buy you love and it can’t buy you respect either. I respect my mailman more than…

I do believe the way the QPD runs this is to simply look to see if you're wearing a seat belt or driving erratically or some other obvious violation. From there that can then lead them to other things once they check your license or can see inside your car but it's all based on probable cause. They can't even ask to search your car anymore like they used to do.

So basically, repainting the runway...isn't considered an acceptable use of the grant money.

OLC gets 30-Day Extension on Gems for 2015

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.
