The climate change wackos will do anything to scare people into believing the hoax of global warming, climate change, climate distortion or whatever they call it now days, even naming snow storms and thunder storms. They're a nutty bunch.

It's always amusing to see an article like this one from the Strawman bring the two website champions of the leftwing out of hiding to spread their name-calling and goofy "philosophy". And their lame attempts at liberal humor......just precious. It would actually be comical if not for the fact these two aren't the only ones out there in that group made up of Obama's welfare army,…

But the implications aren't just for Chancelors of Universities. This would have to legally apply to every government job which would certainly impact applications and it will also surely result in some hires being second guessed and place a cloud over the incoming person selected. The public is not going to be privy to the reasons candidates are not selected and yet eventually some candidate…

Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 boardings to hit 10,000

Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 boardings to hit 10,000

2 years, 1 month ago by Bob Gough

City would qualify for $1 million in additional federal funds

If the rest of December’s weather remains pleasant, Cape Air might be able to hit the 10,000 enplanement mark this year.

With Cape Air's reduced ticket pricing of $39.00 on selected flights since the first of October as well as the revised Flight Schedule since mid-October, boardings continue to remain strong, hitting 979 passengers in November.

That enplanement count is the second highest monthly total for Cape Air since they began to provide service to the Quincy Regional Airport three years ago and is surpassed only by the 997 boardings that occurred this past October. 

 Of these 979 total passengers, 966 of them were classified as "revenue passengers" as per FAA Regulations and can be counted toward the goal of 10,000 revenue passengers for the Quincy Regional Airport for 2012. 

 With the total revenue passengers for 2012 standing at 9014 through November, Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 more revenue passengers in December to hit 10,000.

Quincy Regional Airport Interim Manager Jeff Steinkamp said those boardings can come “from either the scheduled air carrier, Cape Air, or any certified Charter Flight Service during the month of December to qualify the City for $1 million of Federal Grant money that can be used for Capital Infrastructure and Safety Improvement Projects at the Quincy Regional Airport.”

Quincy Mayor John Spring made a plea for citizen to use the airport.

“With the enplanement numbers so close to the 10,000 mark, I would encourage all area residents and businesses to consider using Cape Air during the month of December to help reach our goal and to qualify for the additional funding to improve our local airport.”
