You can pay some now or you can pay MORE later. Kicking the can down the road is what got the jail in the shape it's in now. Kicking the can down the road Is what got the school buildings in that shape. Kicking the can down the road Is what got Illinois in the shape it is now. Someone needs to "suck it up and accept the fact that the problem needs to be fixed now, not down the road". We need…

There are plenty of white kids east of 18th, and plenty of them are little thieves, vandals and druggies. I don't see how it would matter in what part of town this happened or what color of skin the victim has.

It is clearly an opinion piece. I'm not bashing QJ for publishing this as news, I think there are people who will read this and take it as news, since it's posted on a news site (even though it's under the opinion page). Most people won't take the time to discern. I would honestly like to see a local journalist do some good solid research (investigative journalism) on this topic…

How did a response that I did not type end up in my post? Is this a new feature. I actually was defending you by making the point that it was not a news story. I hoped that Silence would have come to that conclusion after I asked question.

There are too many kids in our society in general being ignored, unsupervised, or otherwise neglected. Whether because of broken families, no father figures or other positive influences, working single parents who don't have the time (or don't make the time), being raised by grandparents who don't have the energy, etc., these kids are left to their own devices when it comes to school…

Quincy Medical Group launches new smoking cessation course

2 years, 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.
