How clever. Is that one of your classroom lessons? Teaching to vent frustrations with personal attacks?

Problem with all of these studies is a lack of strong scientific support in the conclusions. You can't control "for other variables" with any real chance of veracity. We will...on the other hand...have a small experiment here which should give a good indication of the truth of these ideas. Kids in the new schools should perform notably better (11%???) then the ones still stuck in the old ones.…

This means nothing unless it's the E6 number. If it's the E3 number it's a lie. The real unemployment number , E 6, nation wide is close to 12%.

Quincy Regional Airport needs 986 boardings to hit 10,000

1 year, 10 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.”
