I guess at the end of the day yes I see term limits as a good idea, however we do not need them legislated for them to be in effect. More than the political leaders in this country the voters are the problem, we continue to elect bad leader after bad leader, not knowing or not understanding the voter can easily term limit any politician on their ballot. Right now we have the gov the people want (regardless…

Not that I am a spokesman for QuincyGuy, but I am assuming the blanket statement "Current Senate" included complaints about the Republicans as they obviously have control, and it seems pretty apparent that is where the term limit comment was directed as well, because even my first grade son knows the President is term limited. But I could of done way too much assuming when I read his statement as…

Trusted climate guru Al Gore claimed his science said 75% chance the Northern ice cap would be ice free in summer by 2012. But it is now normal and global ice is now above normal. In 2008 he just flat out claimed the entire northern ice cap would be gone in five years ... they managed to get that lie scrubbed from YouTube, but it is still out there.

OLC Board approves bid for new roof over Kent Hall

OLC Board approves bid for new roof over Kent Hall

2 years, 6 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.
