QyFiredUp - Committee sends new garbage and recycle trucks plan to Quincy City Council - Quincy, IL News - Quinc
WTH do you have to to tie my water usage to my freaking garbage bill ?? When I water my grass or garden, how much solid waste does that produce ? NONE. Have a pay-per-throw program and make those who who generate the most trash pay for it. Is that too simple for everyone ?

Hopefully there will never be enough of you people that would just throw everything in a landfill and keep on consuming, to have your way. Responsible citizens recycle on their own and would even pay to do it. The rest of you need a little coaching, prodding, and even public criticism, when you fail to see the value and social responsibility of recycling.

VIDEO: Candlelight Vigil Held for Connecticut Shooting

1 year, 8 months ago Bryan Nichols

Many gathered in Washington Park Tuesday night to honor victims of Friday's mass shooting.

Voices were raised in song and prayer Tuesday night as more than 50 people gathered in Quincy’s Washington Park to remember the lives lost in the Newtown Connecticut school shooting. A lone gunman took the life of 26 students and staff plus his mother and himself.

Those in attendance held candles and flashlights as the names of the 26 victims were read. Several area pastors led those in attendance in  prayer.

Connie Ward helped organize the vigil.

"I think everybody here has kids and what happened in Connecticut was terrible. I mean, it hurts your heart. We just want to show those people that we're here for them and we love them and support them," said Ward.

She said she started planning the vigil Friday night but it didn't all come together until Tuesday. Ward said she was able to spread the word quickly through radio and social media.
