If I worked in the judicial system I would feel duty bound to adhere to the innocent until proven guilty doctrine. As an ordinary system I feel I can pass judgement on this any time I want - just as I am NOT duty bound to agree with the decision rendered by a jury a.k.a. OJ Simpson.

Because they are not interested in a debate. Their goal is to brow beat any opposition into just shutting up. If you are against anything they are for you are either a racist, a bigot, a homophobe, a wife beater or a child killer. It will get worse. As these tactics become less successful they will go to even more extreme measures. You can't disagree with anything they say and still be a decent…

Yeah, that's an affliction that solely affects only ONE side of the political conversation in this country, right? Never heard terms like "libtards" and "Dumbocrats" and other childish nonsense? Be wary of casting those stones.

What's weird is some species are transexual---changing their sexual proclivities mid-life--or hermaphrodite, but no rampant homosexual species. But then, a dog will hump your leg with vigor........wonder where that fits in?

The state *is* supposed to exclude. They just can't do so in a way that discriminates against a suspect class (like when some states banned interracial marriage) or in a way that violates a fundamental right without a compelling state interest for doing so (interracial marriage and now gay marriage). The state interests in recognizing marriages include easier distribution of wealth upon the…

Quincy School District looking for another administrator

2 years, 4 months ago by Bob Gough

Krista Finklea is leaving as principal at Dewey Elementary

Add the need for a principal to the Quincy School District’s list for this summer.

At next Wednesday’s Quincy School Board meeting, the School Board will accept the resignation of Dewey Elementary Principal Krista Finklea. Finklea and her family are moving to Florida where her husband, Josh, will be involved in starting a church in New Smyrna Beach.  

Krista Finklea was an assistant principal at Quincy High School before taking the Dewey position. Josh Finklea has also been an assistant with the Quincy High School and Junior High football programs as well as the Quincy Youth Football League over the last decade.

The School Board hired a new superintendent, Steven Cobb, on February 1. There are three other Board Office administrators leaving: Assistant Superintendent Christie Dickens and Director of Title One/ Testing/ Technology Jody Cooper are retiring and Assistant Superintendent Trish Sullivan-Viniard has accepted a superintedent's position in the Chicago suburbs. The District will fill two of those positions.

Business Manager Joel Murphy is serving as interim Superintendent and former Business Manager Rich Royalty is serving as interim business manager until Cobb starts this summer. Murphy will also be the IT Director along with his business manager duties once Cobb is in place.

The Quincy School District is looking at about $400,000 in life safety projects this summer.

The bulk of the work will consist of replacing fire alarms and systems in Adams, Baldwin, Berrian, Ellington and Madison Schools. Madison will also see some tuckpointing and work on exterior masonry walls.

The District is also looking at $162,000 to resurface the lower parking lot and create a concrete bus lane at Quincy High School.

The School Board’s Building Committee met Friday morning and referred the plan to the full board for approval at next week’s meeting.
