Ditto, I can't argue with anything you said. The frustrating part is the head in the sand thinking of many American's who choose to ignore or admit that Obama and the current crop of democrats and their policies are destroying America. It's a tough fight when Obama and democrats just outright lie and the media never calls them out on their lies. And to top that off we have a timid cowardly…

"Obama is naïve to think that these three groups will get along and co-exist peacefully. " Well, it is naive to believe Obama wasn't straight faced lying to America about whether he ever heard his mentor Rev. Wright express "God Damn America" rhetoric, or whether he would really never raise taxes on those making under $200K, or whether he would cut Bush's "unpatriotic and irresponsible"…

I absolutely commend you on your willingness to research and draw an educated opinion. I however would strenuously point out that past performance absolutely dictates future performance.

Absolutely not. Everyone in government needs to be held accountable for spending tax payer dollars. I'm not necessarily for the jail project (or against it).

City extends yard waste collection contract

2 years, 2 months ago by Bob Gough

The Quincy City Council has extended its contract with Evans Recycling to handle residential yard waste collection and disposal.

The one-year extension is for $529,362 from March 1, 2013 through February 28, 2014.

Aldermen also heard first reading on an ordinance to move $14,147 from the general fund to the City Council’s group health insurance fund. Quincy Mayor John Spring said more dependents were added to the plan. The ordinance requires two more readings.

And the Council gave approval for fireworks to be shot at the Quincy Country Club on February 4 with the stipulation that the display would be finished by 10 p.m. Aldermen received several complaints when fireworks were shot off at QCC at 11:30 p.m. on January 19.
