Wall Street was solidly in the Romney/Ryan camp last time, pjohnf. (And assuming he's the nominee, they'll certainly be in Ryan's camp in 2016.) Why is it that you seem to think that they're Obama supporters?

When did presidential libraries start taking this kind of funding? (I always thought they were privately funded... or at least I remember hearing that the Clinton and Bush #43 libraries were being done that way.)

Off-topic, but just to clarify, I will say that the disabled individuals that I've worked with aren't the least bit interested in free phones or anything like that. (Many of them will never live independently in their own communities; any such "bribes" would be meaningless to them.) Of course there are opportunists who do try to take advantage of every social program under the sun, and…

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, and Bush 2, had libraries built with private funds. I can't believe Soros or Buffett (or the Clinton's ;P) aren't contributing to the bill for Obama. Rahm is even stumping for it, as he says it will be a big tourism money maker. Hey, I'm all for it, if it is. On a side note, I think this is the first presidential…

I honestly couldn't care less about anybody's party affiliation. This ID issue actually has A LOT to do with poor people, the elderly, and people with disabilities -- regardless of their personal politics. (There are a lot of poor people in the south who are lifelong Republicans.) Arbitrarily-enacted voter ID laws ultimately won't disenfranchise you or me... but they do have a real…

Quincy Medical Group launches new smoking cessation course

1 year, 3 months ago by Denise Donley

Starting on January 8, 2013, QMG will offer eight-sessions on Tuesday evenings from 5 pm to 6:30 pm

At Quincy Medical Group, we understand the positive outcomes of quitting smoking months and even years after a person commits to quitting. We also understand the difficulties faced during the road to becoming free of tobacco. This is why Quincy Medical Group has partnered with the American Lung Association to offer Freedom From Smoking, a tobacco cessation program.

“Smoking and tobacco use is more than a habit, it is an addiction, and one that can be hard to overcome,” said Loretta Musholt RN, Certified Smoking Cessation Facilitator.

Starting on January 8, 2013, Quincy Medical Group will offer the eight-session program on Tuesday evenings from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. This program will provide targeted tobacco cessation classes led by Certified Smoking Cessation Facilitators, along with individual counseling, peer support and tobacco replacement products. Freedom from Smoking is based on a five step platform that prepares individuals to quit and provides resources that are scientifically proven to help them stay tobacco free.

“Freedom From Smoking is a program I am proud to be a part of because it not only gives you the resources to quit, but it also provides the guidance to make sure you beat the habit for life,” said Ashlyn Myers, RD, LDN, Certified Smoking Cessation Facilitator.

Research indicates dramatic improvements in the body minutes to years after quitting smoking, including improved heart and lung function, and a substantial decrease in the risk of stroke and heart attack.

In order to ensure individual support and success, the class is limited to ten participants. Please call 217- 222-6550, ext. 3117 for more information or to reserve your spot in Freedom From Smoking.
