COuld a Democrat explain how giving illegals a drivers license will guarantee the illegal, non American Citizen, will have auto insurance, when the above listed legal American citizens don't have it ?? It is obvious from the list of infractions that the legal American citizen does not know nor does he/she adhere to the Rules of the Road per Illinois. Will an illegal, who does not speak nor understand…

Sad thing is, those who voted 'yes' spend tax payers' money, probably don't pay property and school taxes, get their gasoline in W. Quincy, shop in Hannibal, or will die before the bills are ever paid off. Wonder how many of Qcy Comp and Titan employees will be moving away and how many of them voted yes for this project ??

They're playing in the majors, but they're still a few games back. Chicago still holds a higher spot with 124 shot/killed, and 750 shot/wounded. For those who think I'm being insensitive, I'm not (though I am being flippant). My point is that press makes a big deal about stuff like this where it's not as common while continuing to ignore places where it's an ongoing…

Three men are the only incumbents whose seats are up next April

Three Quincy School Board members whose seats are up in April announced during Tuesday night's Board meeting they won't run again.

Board President Bill Daniels, Vice President Steve Krause and Tom Dickerson each took turns making a statement at the start of the meeting.

Daniels will wrap up this third consecutive four-year term.

"I never had a single day of regret serving on the Board. I'm not leaving for any negative reasons," Daniels said. "It's time for me to focus on my businesses, growing my business and trying to create jobs."

He said every organization he's been involved in, he's hopefully left something in it better off than before. He believes that during his tenure, the District has operated with more clarity and uniformity.

Daniels also urges others who care about education to "go get yourself a petition" and run for one of the three open seats.

Dickerson and Krause echoed his statements, each saying their time on the Board was important to them.

Krause, who is on his first term, said he believed it was "everybody's responsibility to do public service."

Dickerson said the District's situations over the years have caused him "many sleepless nights" but he has "no regrets." He was appointed to fill a vacant Board seat and in April will have been on the Board 10 years.

So far, seven people have taken out petitions for the three open seats. Click here for that story.

School Board petitions must be turned in between December 17 and December 24
