OK we can link 2 ballot measures together - we raise the min wage to $481 per hour. That way everybody who works in Illinois will make more than $1 million. Add the 3% surcharge on top then the government will have more money than it could ever need - at least for a year or 2. For those who think this doesn't make sense - it doesn't but it makes as much sense to me as this surcharge does.…

Aren't local community Fire Boards autonomous from any state requirements and can determine their own hiring standards? I don't believe Quincy's Fire Board gives any preference or points to applicants for prior training or education for appointment to the fire department but they should.

Don't the rich already pay more in income taxes? 6% of a million is more than 6% of say $50,000, so the rich pay more now. Democrats are using these ballot measures to wage class warfare and increase voter turnout for democrats. Democrats don't care one bit about the little guy, they just want to maintain their power and control with these ballot questions.

Learn about the importance of bees for food sources and the joy of keeping bees as a hobbyist

The Mississippi Valley beekeepers are hosting a bee class February 16th from 9am to 3pm. The class will be held at the Farm Bureau lower level at 330 South 36th street in Quincy.   We’ll be sharing information about the importance of bees for food sources, and the joy of keeping bees as a hobbyist.  The class is for those who have interested in either keeping bees or seeing the benefits of bees in their lives.

Agriculturalists, retirees, hobbyist, Health conscious consumers and kids are encouraged to attend.  Companion bee hives can increase crop production by 30%.  Kids can keep bees for 4H projects, and hobbyists can use a variety of bee bi-products like Honey, Wax, and balms. 

We will also explain the types of honey and help consumers be able to understand honey grades, and be able to make more informed purchasing decisions.  Those suffering for allergies can often find local honey has the pollen they suffer from the most and can work to build a tolerance from their allergies.

Cost is $30 for an individual or $30 for the whole family, which includes class, introduction to beekeeping book and a year’s membership to the local association.
