Why would anyone want to actually investigate something by checking facts? It is so much easier to just press "share" or "forward" and keep spreading those rumors and lies. Or for some of the "trolls" - more fun to just say outrageous things to get a reaction.

How clever. Is that one of your classroom lessons? Teaching to vent frustrations with personal attacks?

Problem with all of these studies is a lack of strong scientific support in the conclusions. You can't control "for other variables" with any real chance of veracity. We will...on the other hand...have a small experiment here which should give a good indication of the truth of these ideas. Kids in the new schools should perform notably better (11%???) then the ones still stuck in the old ones.…

OLC Board approves bid for new roof over Kent Hall

1 year, 11 months ago by Denise Donley

Construction on Kent Hall will hopefully begin by the end of the year

Goerlich Roofing was awarded the bid to construct Kent Hall’s new roof for the Oakley Lindsey Center.

At Wednesday’s meeting, the Oakley Lindsey Center board announced the $57,000 bid was awarded to Goerlich Roofing. 

OLC will receive a 20 year warranty for the Kent Hall roofing replacement and work will hopefully begin before the end of the year, weather permitting.

“We’ve been able to secure a good bid and looking forward to getting the roof replaced up there,” said Executive Director Rob Ebbing. “We’re keeping it up to shape so we’re not falling apart.”

The Gems Baseball team budget has been an item of scrutiny in the past months, and Wednesday’s meeting showed no different.

Budget line items were moved around but the overall budget remained the same.

There was a decrease in travel expenses for the team this past season, so money was moved from the travel expenses to cover other items instead.

Doing this is against OLC Board policy, and Ebbing was asked by the board to fix this.

“This coming year we’re really going to have to sit down and crunch the numbers,” said Ebbing. “We love keeping baseball alive in Quincy and having the Gems here for the community, but we can’t continue to keep taking losses.”

In other business, the OLC and KHQA will co-host the Outdoor Show, taking place in January 2013. This event will host local businesses showcasing campers, ATV’s, motorcycles, boats and much more.

The OLC will be sharing revenues and sales of vendors with KHQA. In exchange, KHQA will take care of advertising for OLC and the event.

Also, the storage building remains on holds as the application for the DCEO grant is still waiting approval.

The board will meet again December 19 at 12:00 p.m.
