Perhaps...but once the FAA says it's needed you probably shouldn't wait for what is a routine maintenance task.

I, for one, am tired of the media portraying the Ray Rice case as an issue of men abusing women. I haven't heard ANY of the talking heads mention that Janay struck Ray. That is domestic violence as well. I am not excusing Ray or blaming Janay. What I am tired of is domestic violence being portrayed as a MAN problem. Nurmerous studies have proven that domestic violence is perpetrated as often…

We only have ourselves to blame for a large part of this problem. For some reason we insist on putting people who can shoot a basketball, or carry a football, or hit a baseball 450 feet on a pedestal. This alone is not deserving of respect. The only difference between them and us is how much money they make. Money can’t buy you love and it can’t buy you respect either. I respect my mailman more than…

I do believe the way the QPD runs this is to simply look to see if you're wearing a seat belt or driving erratically or some other obvious violation. From there that can then lead them to other things once they check your license or can see inside your car but it's all based on probable cause. They can't even ask to search your car anymore like they used to do.

More than 2,500 tickets already sold for Catholic Schools Mega Raffle

2 years, 5 months ago by Bob Gough

Just as was the case last year, the tickets for the Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools and Quincy Notre Dame Foundations'  2nd Annual “Everybody Wins” Mega Raffle are going fast.

Kurt Stuckman of the QND Foundation said more than 2000 tickets were sold on Saturday during the kickoff event at the Quincy Mall. He said another 500 were turned in this morning.

Stuckman said he anticipated more tickets being turned in by coordinators at each parish later today. He said the "worst-case scenario" would be having tickets left by the end of the week, meaning he anticipates the remaining 1500 being sold before then.

The grand prize is $100,000. Second prize is a choice of either a 2012 Chevy Cruz or Chevy Silverado.  Third prize is $10,000. 

Tickets are $100 each.  The first 4,000 tickets sold and brought to the QND Foundation office will be entered into the drawing.  All ticket sales are final and non-refundable. You need not be present to win.

A total of 110 prizes totaling $162,250 will be awarded.  There is a 1 in 36 chance of winning $100.  The top 80 prizes will be drawn on at the Mega Event on Saturday, June 2, 2012, at 6:00 p.m. on the St. Anthony Parish grounds.  A complete list of prizes, drawings, rules and frequently asked questions for the 2012 “EVERYBODY WINS” Mega Raffle can be found at www.quincymegaraffle.org.
