eaglebeaky - Susan Rice Flashback: Bergdahl Served ‘With Honor and Distinction’ - Quincy, IL News - Q
With all respect, pjohnf, I've gotta disagree. Whether we like it or not, Bergdahl was an American serviceman. That one fact is the reason that I believe we HAD to get him back regardless, whether he was a traitor or a patriot. Scenario 1: if any American serviceman gets captured by enemy combatants, we owe it to them to do whatever we can to get them back, wouldn't you agree? Scenario…

There is a big difference between inadequate and illegal. To date, no agency has obviously indicated that the jail cannot be used but that doesn't make the jail adequate for todays world. A Model T Ford could still be used for a patrol car as well. It isn't illegal to drive one but it is entirely inadequate.

Susan Rice is the "closer in the bullpen" for the Obama admin - when they needed someone to come in tell a whopper that even Hillary wouldn't touch she was the one they called on.

Malicious mischief? I'm waiting to someone to be arrested for shenanigans. Shouldn't people have to call in and describe a missing bicycle, and then QPD would see if they have one on their list that matches? It seems like posting descriptions of found items makes it easy for a ne'er-do-well to claim something that isn't theirs.

Community Foundation announces matching grant program

2 years, 4 months ago by Mary Griffith

On its 15th anniversary, the Community Foundation of the Quincy area announced a $15,000 matching grant program for each of the 13 counties it serves.

Community Foundation Chairman Brian Ippensen says that means if a local fund committee in the county can raise $15,000, the gift will automatically be doubled by the Foundation.

The funds will be a permanent endowment to be used only in that county and only as local citizens decide.

Pike County, Illinois has already started the process. For the past four years, a local committee has been raising funds.  Now that group is going to try to receive the $15,000 match.

Ippensen says all 13 counties can achieve this permanent endowment to help provide for their local needs. He says now is a good time to consider a gift since the donors money will double and will be restricted for use in the county they designate only.
