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.

Company delivered the units to Quincy this weekend

Ameren Illinois is donating 50 window air conditioners Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials to help keep customers cool and safe this summer.
 
Two Rivers, which assists low-income families, veterans and the elderly, will distribute the units to qualifying individuals who meet Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) guidelines.
 
Overall, Ameren Illinois is donating 400 units to nine energy assistance agencies across its service territory. 
The air conditioners are rated units that meet the strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy. 
 
“We are so grateful to partner with Ameren Illinois on this important program. When the summertime heat and 
humidity goes up, there is only so much a box fan and keeping your windows open can do,” said Becky Pruden, 
director of Community Services Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials. “This wonderful donation 
provided by Ameren Illinois is a blessing. It allows us to help individuals and families to stay cool this summer.” 
 
The window units are being donated through the Ameren Cares program. Ameren Cares is an initiative that 
connects Ameren Illinois with the communities it serves through charitable giving and volunteering. 
 
“We started our Ameren Cares air conditioner giveaway last year and partnered with several energy 
assistance agencies to provide air conditioners to some of our most vulnerable customers,” said Richard J. 
Mark, president and CEO, Ameren Illinois. “This year we are continuing our efforts to provide much-needed 
relief to low-income families, veterans and the elderly who are particularly susceptible to the heat."
