Ditto, I can't argue with anything you said. The frustrating part is the head in the sand thinking of many American's who choose to ignore or admit that Obama and the current crop of democrats and their policies are destroying America. It's a tough fight when Obama and democrats just outright lie and the media never calls them out on their lies. And to top that off we have a timid cowardly…

"Obama is naïve to think that these three groups will get along and co-exist peacefully. " Well, it is naive to believe Obama wasn't straight faced lying to America about whether he ever heard his mentor Rev. Wright express "God Damn America" rhetoric, or whether he would really never raise taxes on those making under $200K, or whether he would cut Bush's "unpatriotic and irresponsible"…

I absolutely commend you on your willingness to research and draw an educated opinion. I however would strenuously point out that past performance absolutely dictates future performance.

Absolutely not. Everyone in government needs to be held accountable for spending tax payer dollars. I'm not necessarily for the jail project (or against it). But the notion that we should "take care of ourselves" by not paying any taxes, or comparing a jail to obama phones and welfare is assinine. Almost as ridiculous as the original text of the article. We need a jail. Do we need a new one? Do…

QND welcomes home Jack Cornell

2 years, 1 month ago by Paige Traeder

QND held a pep rally Friday afternoon at the QND gymnasium in honor of Quincy native and Super Bowl champion, Jack Cornell

Crowds of people of every age and from all over packed into the QND gymnasium Friday to welcome home Quincy native Jack Cornell. Cornell spoke about his recent Super Bowl experience, his high school experience at QND, and what it takes to play at a high level in the NFL.

From QND to the University of Illinois to the Baltimore Ravens, Jack said it's his dream come true.

"It didn't really pan out the way I thought it would have, but it's not how you get to the league, it's what you do when you get there. And I'm having a blast and enjoying every minute of it."

After all of his experiences and hardships working towards his goal, Jack gave some advice to kids and young people striving for their dream.

"I would say to never doubt yourself. It doesn't matter where you're from or what your background is. Ya know, in the National Football League there's guys from all over the country, from all different backgrounds and is it something that if you want it bad enough that no one can you tell you you can't, only yourself."

Jack says its about the resiliency, mental toughness and being able to survive through tough times. Because he said, when it's getting hard, that's when you know your close to and greatness.
