And you think navigating our highways where you are driving 90,000 pounds at 70 mph when an idiot cuts you off is stress free? Most truck drivers will tell you this happens everyday if not several time a day. You think being 50 foot up on a roof is stress free. Let's not even talk about being up on a roof like st Francis and the lets talk about the stress free life of walking on a steel beam…

It's not a "high horse", Migraine... it's the same journalistic standard that every media outlet tries to live up to every day: accuracy. I'm not comparing "apples to oranges". (That's why I characterized QJ as "a news and opinion site". Note the use of the word "and". It is a legitimate news source, but the opinion pieces are no less important than the news stories.) The…

I find the down-votes here sad, qfingers. It indicates either they don't like the Dem bashing, or the truth. Probably both. Reminds me of a political cartoon. Two people sitting at desks. A sign above one says "Uncormfortable truths". The other, "Comforting lies". Guess which desk had the longer line.

You're correct that it's a farce. One major economic factor....if women thought they weren't getting paid enough why don't they go find a job that pays better? That's how get you get a pay raise. There's another factor nobody mentions. Pay is partially based for some jobs on asking for a raise. I've found females much more likely than males to be afraid to ask for…

You're correct that police officer is only the 10th most dangerous in the U.S. by fatalities. None of those other jobs ask a person to go into a place where there's an armed subject ready to shoot you. And yes...that does happen...and…

CSC has secured a $3.9 million performance contract

Culver-Stockton College has secured a $3.9 million performance contract to implement energy-efficient improvements on campus. Nearly every building on campus will receive upgrades, and three buildings will received a major HVAC renovation. This overhaul will reduce the College’s carbon footprint by 4.9 million pounds of carbon dioxide annually.

To put the energy savings into perspective, the emissions saved annually by this upgrade are enough to power 309 homes for a year. The carbon sequestered will save 1,843 acres of U.S. forests and the water saved is enough to fill 7.6 Olympic size pools annually. It also reduces the yearly consumption of gasoline by 252,064 gallons, which is enough to power 468 passenger vehicles for one year.

"We are so excited to implement these changes on campus. Not only will the upgrades have a positive impact on the student experience; they will also have a tangible impact on the environment,” said Dr. Chris Gill, dean of students. “The construction on campus will also stimulate the local economy, which is a high priority to the College.”

The improvements to campus include increasing efficiency in water, lighting, heating and cooling systems. Upgrades to the water system include implementing over 700 water-saving improvements to faucets, toilets, irrigation systems and ice makers.

Lighting upgrades include replacing or re-lamping 5300 fixtures, adding 200 occupancy sensors and installing over 10,000 fluorescent and LED bulbs.

Three buildings on campus will have new variable refrigerant flow heating and cooling systems installed. Henderson Hall will receive the first overhaul, with construction planned for January. Immediately following that, the upgrade to the Carl Johann Memorial Library begins. Shannon Residence Hall will receive its new system this summer, when there are no residents living in the building.

The updates to campus will save the College $368,000 annually. The savings will be used to cover the cost of the upgrades.

“We decided to make these changes because the older systems were wasting energy, which means we are wasting money,” said Joe Liesen, executive director of administrative systems and services. “Redirecting savings incurred from replacing antiquated systems into new, energy efficient systems will reduce our carbon footprint and begin paying us back after the payback of these new systems.” 

This energy renovation is also estimated to return over $1.7 million to the local economy through labor and other direct costs. HVAC upgrades will be completed by Peters Heating and Air, while electrical upgrades will be done by Wiskirchen Electric of La Grange, Mo. The College is working with Energy Solutions Professionals in this process.
