There has never, ever been a board that believes in "saving the money for a rainy day". They have to SPEND THE MONEY. And even SPEND THE MONEY they haven't even gotten yet.

Your missing my point. My point is if new buildings were built with a Capital Fund, a cash $$$$ fund approved by taxpayers, the interest savings would be given back to taxpayers and the buildings would still be built albeit at a slightly slower rate. Do you think the polls for this issue would even be close if approval of a capital fund was partnered with a larger decrease in the bond fund tax rate…
ReardenShrugged - Court-appointed monitor ordered for IDOT hiring - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Maybe judges should monitor and approve all government hires. Our country is big on checks and balances and hiring is one of those areas that is frequently exploited for political gain. I know people who turned down government job offers because they refused give a big chunk of the salary back to their political party. Now every time I meet someone with a government position, I wonder which came…

Friends of the Log Cabins Association Capital Campaign

There is still time to donate to re-build the Log Cabin Village on Quinsippi Island

 The Friends of the Log Cabins Association, a 501c3 charitable organization, is seeking donations to help restore the Log Cabins on Quinsippi Island.  The coming year's goal is to re-build the Clat Adams Cabin, which was disassembled last year due to advanced deterioration.  Capital Fundraising Campaign honorary co-chairs Laura Kent Donahue and Chuck Scholz encourages everyone to help by donating monies to save these valuable historic structures, originally brought to Quinsippi Island in the late 60's,  to preserve them for current and future generations to "reflect a bit from when we came."  

The first fundraising mailing, sent out in November, included an option for the donor to have an inscribed Brick in a Memorial Plaza to be installed around the Kiosk in the village.   If you didn't receive the letter, the Donation Form is also located on the web site at www.logcabinvillagequincyil.com. Mail tax deductible donations to: Friends of the Log Cabins, P.O. Box 3122, Quincy, IL 62305. 

The Friends have created a Face Book page: FriendsOfTheLogCabinVillageQuincyIl to showcase the village and provides information on events and restoration activities.  Visitors can learn what is happening and how they can help, by either joining the Friends, volunteering, or donating to help save, restore, preserve and utilize these historic 1800's structures. 

In 1968, the Lincoln-era Log Cabin Village, referred to as "Adams Landing", was created by the Quinsippi Heritage Foundation under the auspices of the Chamber of Commerce and the Quincy Park District.  In addition to the Chamber and Park District, several service clubs (Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions and Knights of Columbus) were involved in re-locating these historic 1800's log cabins and other structures from locations throughout Adams and Pike County.  Structures were located, disassembled, moved and reassembled on Quinsippi Island in a village setting as part of the Quinsippi Island Entertainment complex designed to encourage Tourism to the area.  The Entertainment complex folded in the 70's and over the years the village fell into disuse, was forgotten and the structures left to deteriorate.  The Friends of the Log Cabins formed in 2007 with a mission to bring renewed life to the village, restore the 1800's historic structures and host activities, so current and future generations can learn how pioneers, who settled in this area, use to live in the 1800's.  An annual Frontier Settlement Day is held the second Saturday in September in addition to open houses, scheduled tours, weddings and private events.  Since they are located in Quinsippi Island Park, the village is open year round to view these historic structures from the outside.  As funds are raised, in addition to fully restoring and preserving each structure, plans are to add signage and improved paths, so visitors now and into the future can enjoy seeing these historic structures and learn about the families, who settled the area, built these cabins and lived in them.
