The millionaire tax is the political version of two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. As 100% of the people if 2% ought to pay more and a good majority of the self-centered 98% will vote "heck yeah...it doesn't affect me". A good example of why we have representative government and not a true democracy.

Mabey the "on time in jeopardy" is a little alarmist this early. However the longer they hold off the harder "on budget" becomes if you plan on keeping the original target date. although I don't think its uncommon for deadlines to get pushed back a time or two on a project this size. Knowing the schedule they are under there is probably a reason overtime and double time contingencies were put…

QPD's Pullins honored as Law Officer of the Year

QPD's Pullins honored as Law Officer of the Year

2 years, 3 months ago by Denise Donley

Pullins is a 15 year veteran of the department

The Quincy Exchange Club held its annual law officer of the year award ceremony Friday.

The Officer of the Year award went to Quincy Police Officer Darla Pullins. Pullins, of Mendon, has been employed at QPD for 15
years. In addition to her latest award, she has been recognized as 2004 Officer of the Year and QPD Employee of the Month five different
times.

QPD Chief Rob Copley said over the past year, one event stood out in Pullins receiving this award. On August 10, 2012, a man climbed over
the Bayview Bridge and was going to jump. Pullins was off duty when the call came in but went to assist anyway. She said she helped coaxed
the man to stay put and she laid down on the bridge to better communicate with him. Firefighters were later able to hoist the man to safety, thanks to her excellent communication skills and calming personality.

Pullins was completely taken back by the award, originally told her father was receiving an award at the annual ceremony.

“We do our jobs to help people. We’re people persons,” said Pullins. “To be recognized for it just makes you think ‘Ok, they really do appreciate what we do. This award really inspires you to keep doing the best job you can.”

Also honored at the ceremony were two individuals who exemplify public safety in the area. The committee handed out two Citizens of the Year
awards this year to Director of the West Central Illinois Area Agency Lynn Niewohner and Associate Director of the West Central Illinois
Area Agency on Aging Todd Schackelford.

“We’re pretty excited. We’re not worthy, the seniors citizens are. The seniors tell us what activities and events they want to bring in. We have lots of things for the elderly to help us help the community. On their behalf, we are honored to receive the award.”

Both Niewohner and Schackelford were also an important part of bringing the Senior Family and Resource Center to Quincy.
