If he has no money, who is paying the attorneys? Let the bond fit the crime, not his checkbook. And if there actually is no money, that's what Public Defenders are for.

This is what our government has resorted to "symbolism over substance". If people do a hash tag then everyone will feel better about the problem and we won't need to do anything about the problem. Even if we could convince ourselves that terrorism was, in one case, work place violence the perpetrator(s) won't be convinced and we may feel better, but the problem is unchanged. Michael Moore…

CoolEdge, Maybe that is what the aldermen are asking for. Transparency ! There is nothing in the City Code that excludes the aldermen from seeing proposals or names of involved companies. Heck look at the article from QSD, they have released the names of the companies that they are looking at to oversee their project. They just cannot release how much the bids are. The Mayor can voice his feelings…

I agree that he should not be treated any differently, but that is the reason given for the trial delay. And you're exactly right about bond being based on the crime, which means that contrary to pimpdaddystyle's opinion, a murder charge does not justify a reduced or recognizance bond. His attorneys say in the aforementioned article that they have not even bothered to ask for a reduction…

2nd Annual GREDF Entrepreneurship Expo this Saturday

5 months, 3 weeks ago by Scott Hardy

9:30 AM to 1:30 PM at Quincy Mall community room

The Quincy Entrepreneurship Center at GREDF, in collaboration with several Quincy area organizations, is hosting an informational event for current and aspiring entrepreneurs on Saturday, August 9th. The 2nd Annual Entrepreneurship Expo will take place in the Quincy Mall Community Room from 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. The Expo is free and open to the public.

"We wanted to provide a one-stop learning experience for entrepreneurs at any stage of the process," said Kimm Minnick, property manager for the Quincy Mall. "We worked with our partners to create an action-packed agenda that includes presentations and time for one-on-one interactions and specific questions."   

The day will begin with a Small Business Development Center presentation outlining the steps to starting a business - including the importance of a business plan and cash management.  

At noon the Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce (QACC) will announce the winner of the 2014 Business Plan Competition.  

Lunch will be provided by the Quincy Mall immediately following the QACC announcement. Participants will have an opportunity to network and ask questions during this time. Stations will be set up for specific topics in the areas of financing a small business, marketing and sales, legal and tax issues, and human resources.  

According to Charles Bell, director of the Quincy Entrepreneurship Center, planning the event has been a group effort. "When we initiated the event last year we wanted to get a number of organizations involved so current and prospective small business owners would have access to a wide network of local resources in one place," Bell said. "It was so well received we decided to improve the event and hold it a second year."

The Entrepreneurial Expo is being coordinated by GREDF in collaboration with the Small Business Development Center, Quincy Mall, Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce, John Wood Community College, Quincy University, The District, Illinois WorkNet Center and the Quincy Business and Technology Center.  

In addition to the presentations and small group discussions, packets of information will be available outlining where to go for further assistance, as well as information about local training opportunities and schedules of upcoming entrepreneurship events.  

There is no cost to attend, and no RSVP is required. Questions may be directed to Charles Bell at GREDF - 217.223.4313 or charlesb@gredf.org, or any of the participating organizations.
