8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

Quincy printing companies merge

1 year, 8 months ago by Bob Gough

Royal Printing and Modern Printing to become one as of February 1

The owners of Royal Printing and Modern Printing have announced plans to merge their two companies.

Dan Asbury of Royal Printing and Kevin Curran of Modern Printing are combining the two long-time Quincy companies into one production facility.

Beginning February 1, the two companies will continue to do business as Royal Printing. Asbury, who bought Royal in 2001, said the climate was right to make the move.

“The industry has evolved into more than just printing stationery, brochures and business forms,” Asbury said. “Technology keeps advancing and now many customers need more color and faster turn-around, for short runs as well as larger quantities. Kevin and I realized if we worked together we’d be able to more efficiently handle the needs and demands of all our customers.”

Curran, who with Dave Rees bought Modern Printing in 2000, says both businesses have seen steady growth over the years.

 “We’ve been very fortunate by staying ahead of the curve in the shift to digital printing and this joint venture enables us to combine the best of our equipment and manpower, which will keep us growing for years to come.”

Over the next several days and weeks, Modern Printing will gradually move to the Royal Printing facility on Ellington Road. Asbury and Curran will work together managing the combined operation while Rees will step aside as a partner and instead concentrate on his family business, Rees Construction.

 “As far as employees are concerned, there’s a broad range of skilled manpower between both companies, so there’s a good chance everyone will be utilized in one way or another.”
