Does the former City of Quincy engineer Jeff Steinkamp's name appear anywhere in this report? He ended up landing on his feet with a sweet IDOT ghost job after he got canned.

They did follow the citizenry, few that they were. The aldermen buckled for fear of not getting reelected and missing their pay as aldermen, healthcare etc.!

What's your point? QND is not for everyone, and everyone knows that. QND is not equipped to give every young person an education. The public schools are more capable of providing special education programs and also for providing AP courses for superb students. But for those that choose QND, the rewards last a lifetime and immeasurable. For the average or above average young person, QND provides…

Just checked my Constitution, nothing on garbage. You could also cancel your Quincy fire protection and contract with Tri-Township. Cancel your water and sewer then drill a well and add septic, put up a wind generator to bypass CIPS. However, all those are band by government who use their constitutional authority.

I'm going to add....contact your alderman and the mayor if you want to see contracting out tried again rather than spending more money here. The city can absorb the initial cost of the totes for the contract which would reduce the cost put on the water bill. From that point on totes would be provided for free but there would be a replacement cost if you "lose" it. Then you substitute the revenue…

Ann Miller Titus to hold artist reception at JWCC for exhibit

1 year, 6 months ago by Denise Donley

Titus's exhibits show a variety of textiles

An exhibit by Ann Miller Titus is on display through February 16 in the John Wood Community College Heath Center Art Gallery.  Miller will host a reception on Thursday, February 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gallery located in the lower level of the Paul Heath Community Education and Fine Arts Center on the JWCC campus in Quincy at 48th and Harrison.  The display is open to the public during the College’s regular operating hours. 

Miller has been stitching since she was a young girl, when her grandmother gave her a cross stitch sampler.  By the mid 1980’s, her love for stitching grew and she transformed traditional wall quilts into unique and beautiful pieces of art.  Now 20 years later, her experiments with a variety of textiles are displayed regularly in regional galleries.

Titus continues to honor her quilting roots by experimenting with a wide variety of surface design techniques to alter textiles while stitching layers of fabric together.   She works with fabric discharge, disperse dyes, image transfer and felt making to create her art.  Recently, Titus has returned to the art of quilt making by creating highly textured surfaces with extensive machine quilting.  Her current body of work is grounded in the traditions of fabric and thread, celebrates color and composition, and maps the interaction between imaginary spaces. 

Titus is a member of the Great River Artisans and the Hannibal Alliance Art Gallery. Her work has been exhibited throughout the region and won numerous awards, including the 2008 City of Quincy Purchase Award at the Midsummer Arts Faire in Quincy. More information about her work is available at www.annmillertitus.com .
