I worked with one NASA atmospheric modeling system which one of the guys in our office didn't believe the answers it was giving. The model had been around for many years and used by many. I investigated and found a unit mismatch where one place was expecting watts/steradian and the other watts/degree. Fixed it and the answers were much more reasonable. I worked with another model produced by…

In those ICCC conferences, one old retired scientist was saying if you give him a couple variables he can draw an elephant from the data, give him three and he can make its tail wag. Or something like that. The point is models are useless when a "scientist" gets to choose the data points and the preferred subject (tree rings in one area, certain ice cores, etc.). Even more insane when they don't…

Cedar Creek name could change to "Bill Klingner Trail"

2 years, 1 month ago by Bryan Nichols

Family as well as board members said they thought it appropriate to name the trail after Klingner because of his longtime interest and support


It’s been known as the Cedar Creek Trail since its inception. However, the partially completed trail may soon go by another name.

At Wednesday’s Quincy Park Board meeting, the commissioners discussed renaming the park.

Last month, the board settled on the name “Lincoln Park” for the new park that will sit adjacent to the Park District’s new offices on Bonansinga Drive. They also considered naming it William H. Klingner Park after the longtime supporter of the Park District but decided Lincoln was more appropriate.

Board members had considered naming a community center located at the new park after Klingner to honor him. However, board member Tom Ernst said that he had heard from the Klingner family and they said he wouldn’t really have any connection to the center.

Family as well as board members said they thought it appropriate to name the trail after Klingner because of his longtime interest and support for building a trail in Quincy.

“Bill (Klingner) had the original vision of green space, i.e. trail, stretching across Quincy’s north side going clear back to the 40’s,” said Board Chairman John Frankenhoff.

Frankenhoff said the name change could happen easily because the trail was never officially named “Cedar Creek Trail.”

“There was not a public input period. It was discussed so many times during grant applications that when we finally had money, it just stuck,” said Frankenhoff.

Park District Executive Director said that the only cost that the move would incur would be to change a couple of signs.

Frankenhoff proposed that the trail be known as “Bill Klingner Trail.” He asked for a recommendation from staff to be brought back before the Park Board next month.

In other matters, the Board discussed in closed session the sale of Emerson School, which currently holds their offices. Frankenhoff said that the Park District hopes to be out of Emerson School by late summer.

“We expect to be out of here and have it available for purchase by November 1st.”

He said there was some informal interest from parties interested in the building but nothing serious.

“It’s very difficult to even estimate the value of the building because it’s currently zoned R-2 which is residential so the new owner probably can’t use it as it exists now.”

Frankenhoff said they plan to be at the new offices on Bonansinga  in June, barring any unforeseen challenges.
