UrKidsWillPay I know you challenged qfingers but because I knew he was right I took it up myself. Here is the reference you were looking for on the Airport manager Hester resigns article, looks cut and pasted to me.

I would chalk your experience with the city workers up as professionalism and smarts. Not a good thing to be running the mayor down on the clock

The Herald Whig article says that Moore claims the resignation had nothing to do with either the purchase of $4,300 of airline tickets nor the FAA investigation. Can he really believe that anyone would be buying this?? Perhaps Susan Rice will come to the Council meeting on Monday to collaborate.

Actually I have criticized things he has done. The whole trash thing was done incorrectly. Not sure there's anything in this story that's his fault. I have criticized Obama (not sure he's done much of anything I'm fond of) and I have praised our prior Mayor. So I don't believe intellectual dishonesty is a fair assessment. Always willing to debate any facts you may have.…

Broke Into Home at 9th & Locust; Considered Dangerous

Two armed men are at large, and wanted in connection with a break-in at a home near 9th and Locust Monday morning.

Quincy police had conducted a manhunt at the Illinois Veterans Home for the men, cordoning off a wooded area at the Home and calling in a Special Response Team.

According to Deputy Chief Doug Vandermaiden, police called off their search at the Vets Home early this afternoon after the suspects got away from the Vets Home. 

The suspects are described as being between 18 and 22 years old. One is white, and police aren't certain of the other suspect's race. The white male has very short hair, the other man has dark curly hair. 

The men may be armed with a hand gun, and are considered dangerous.

Vandermaiden adds residents near the Veterans Home should feel comfortable going back home, but to still be cautious.

Earlier Story:

Just after 10:00 A.M. Monday morning, Quincy police officers responded to a robbery call in the area of 9th and Locust. 

Police officers currently have blocked off a wooded area within the grounds of the Illinois Veteran's Home. 

Police are looking for two men who may be carrying firearms. 

The QPD asks that you stay away from the area until the premises have been cleared. If you live in the area, you should use caution until the scene has been cleared. If you remain at home, it is recommended that you go inside and lock your doors. 

You're asked to call the police if you see anyone suspicious and not attempt contact.
