Yeah great idea. If students don't perform well the next year it's all the fault of the teacher. Home environment shouldn't have any impact on the decision making.

Durbin's fourth six-year term, that alone should disqualify Durbin for reelection. If Illinoisans were smart they would term limit Durbin and send him packing.

If Ryan is the Republican nominee, it's business as usual. And Wall Street will be right there with them/him. Rand Paul is the country's only hope.

The President has set a fine example for the koolaid drinkers by the way he conducts business at the federal level. By hook or by crook I will have my way. Weren't there procedural shenanigans that brought us The Unaffordable Healthcare Act? Interesting how shenanigans rhymes with Madigan. But, while the State of Illinois is handing out welfare to the Obama Foundation why don't they just…

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.
