my reply was specifically about convoy saying the mayor shouldn't vote, lest it expose him in the next election. Is there something wrong with him voting for an agenda he is favoring, or pushing? I don't know about all the other "regular order" type stuff, or what powers the mayor has exactly, on pre-planning some agenda he may have. I'd think the mayor does more than make suggestions…

Thankfully that video has a transcript, so I didn't have to watch five minutes of Michelle straining to portray how much she cares. They use tragedies for political points, like the true Alynskyite subversives they have always been. "Never let a crisis go to waste". Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood president in Egypt, they have closer ties to al Qaeda than us, but Obama supported Morsi.…

Quincy Community Theatre gives to The Sammy Fund

Theatre sold purple wristbands during the recent production of "Wanda's World"

QUINCY, ILLINOIS, February 5, 2013—Quincy Community Theatre thanks its patrons for their generous donation of $277 to The Sammy Fund.

            The money was raised through the sale of purple wristbands featured in the theatre’s regional premiere of Wanda’s World, a brand-new musical about a young girl named Wanda and her rocky start at a new school. Each bracelet displayed the saying “NOT EVERYONE EATS CHEESE,” a phrase throughout the show carrying a strong anti-bullying message: despite our differences, we should all be treated with respect.

            While children were excited to buy a bracelet like those worn by the actors, QCT was happier to give back to an outstanding fund that has supported its own students throughout the years. Through community donations, The Sammy Fund provides youth access to worthwhile activities in our community by opening doors to participation for children whose opportunities are limited. This incredible mission means supporting groups that maintain and enhance community betterment, as well as those that provide artistic, leadership, and humanitarian opportunity for young people—groups like QCT.

“We’re glad that these young people were able to use their unique talents to support a fund that gives so much support to other young people,” says Student Theatre Director Brandon Thomsen. “It’s wonderful to see them coming together and building a healthy community both onstage and off.”

The money is to be presented to The Sammy Fund this February in the lobby of the Oakley-Lindsay Center.
