A few of the parents of kids on this team are the ones who may be lacking maturity . Most people with ties to QND know who those specific parents are, and I hope the ones who know them really let their feelings show. Crazies, just like at QHS can sometimes run the show.

yes, last years team was a great example of a team going to state and the talent was there, no one predicted they would go that far. No one.

She's hardly the voice of the right wing...She can be fun to listen too sometimes...much like the left enjoys the rantings of Nancy Pelosi, Gore, and their ilk. Nobody is going to pick Palin for any position. The media have succeeded in demonizing her and she's not done herself a lot of good either.

thanks for the added details still seems to me he should take credit or blame, and any efforts to build plausible deniability is political, somewhat dishonest, and wasteful. But "that's politics".

Gardner Denver lays off workers at Quincy plant

2 years ago by Bob Gough

About 30 jobs in the machine shop are affected

Sources have told QuincyJournal.com that Gardner Denver has laid off about 30 workers in its machine shop.

Company officials would not confirm when contacted by QuincyJournal.com on Wednesday, but workers in the plant and retired workers confirmed the cuts were taking place this week.

"Manufacturing had been pulling orders forward and now the backlog is pretty low, plus orders and expectations are down as well," one source told QuincyJournal.com.

Quincy Mayor John Spring said he had contacted company officials. He said he was also told that orders were down.

The company makes pumps and compressors at its Quincy facility, where the company was founded more than 150 years ago.

Gardner Denver had still employed about 300 people in Quincy after the company moved its corporate headquarters to Wayne, Pa. in 2010.
