Hope he enjoyed the last 4 days of freedom because that is the last he will have for quite sometime! He will still be looking over his shoulder.

Funny, I always hear the global warming nuts claim a hot day is from global warming. Of course, a one degree change over 100 years is not noticeable by anyone. But there may not really be any warming, since the urban heat island effect was not well accounted for. And Al Gore isn't a guy doing, you know, science. He is a politician now activist that had his net worth go from $2 million to over…

Well he certainly covered some ground unlike his partner. I would certainly love to commend both the Marshals and local authorities on well conducted communications in an expedited effort to capture Kelly despite him quickly heading south eastward.

It's a cascading problem. Starting in the late 70s, early 80s, hunting became less and less. Parents stopped teaching their kids about firearms and gun safety, and the world because more suburban. Now those kids are adults and the only thing they know about guns is what they get in movies. And so they teach their kids that guns are bad, and the problem worsens. It's not any one thing causing…

Well I'm certainly glad I've long since lost/misplaced my childhood super soakers and cap gun. I'd hate to think I could potentially be punished by law for having had those 'out in the yard'. Yet again, policy makers grasping for straws. What next? My metallic painted handcuffs that have a release switch on the side? Are they going to deem my having those as impersonating…

VIDEO: Firefighters respond to 4-alarm fire at O'Shea's Bar & Grill

Bar and grill at 4th and Ceder engulfed by fire

Quincy Firefighters battled a four-alarm fire Friday night at O’Shea’s Bar & Grill on 339 Cedar.

Firefighters responded to reports of fire in the ceiling at 9:41 p.m.

When crews arrived, everyone had already been evacuated safely from the building.

Fire Chief Joe Henning said as crews arrived, firefighters spread throughout the building and found fire in the ceiling of the vacant upstairs apartment.

“Once the fire reached the roof, the fire was upgraded to a fourth alarm so firefighters that were on their 2nd air tank could be replaced and refreshed,” said Henning.

At this time, Henning said there’s no report as to what may have caused the blaze, but since the building was occupied, it’s anybody’s guess what could have been going on.

Stan Whelan has co-owned O'Shea's since January 27, 2011 and said the fire is "just devastating."

"We completely renovated the downstairs and in a couple of weeks we were going to start re-doing the apartment upstairs, said Whelan. "I'd always wanted to own a bar and restaurant."

Wheland added, "We definitely plan on re-opening. We've got a very good business. I hate to say it this way, but O'Shea's is the talk of the town."

Henning said fire damage is mostly upstairs in the apartment, but there is damage to the first floor ceiling as well, mainly smoke and water damage.

No nearby buildings were affected.

Crews are still on the scene checking for hot spots in the building.
