The only people resenting the police are those who are too ignorant to know what the police actually do.

A few years ago, a van was stopped for the "low-hanging fruit" of having the license plate bulb burned out. It was a routine stop that resulted in the seizure of over 500lbs of marijuana. What you deem as "accidental" is not as random as you think. It's a numbers game, and as much as you want to complain about it (a lot, apparently), it's been proven legal at every level of court system…

I'm not sure what your point was in re-posting the blotter, other than you like to see comments with your name at the top. Seat belt enforcement is just picking low-hanging fruit. Violators are usually tame and compliant and usually pay their fines: hence, easy revenue stream for the gubmint. The fact that they accidentally round up a real criminal once in awhile just helps people ignore away…
migraine_in_qcy - Survey says: GREDF, City of Quincy and Adams County get some answers - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJourn
That's all fine and dandy, but what is GREDF doing to try and improve the business climate in Illinois? Is GREDF openly supporting political candidates that are low-tax and pro-business? Is GREDF lobbying or helping fund lobbyists at the state level to promote pro-business laws? It's great to talk about retention, but when Illinois is doing everything it can to stifle business growth, surveys…

STEP is a waste of taxpayer money. We are spending 7 million or so already to catch all the bad guys. The State of Illinois is broke. It is ridiculous to add another layer of law enforcement on top of what we already have. I intend to tell all my reps. to quit wasting my money on more enforcement. Enough is enough. These petty tickets are just sucking money out of the local economy and causing more…

Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 boardings to hit 10,000

Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 boardings to hit 10,000

1 year, 9 months 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.”
