Often, financial support comes with a catch. If the team can manage to get by with fundraisers and donations, it's worth it to keep the school administration at bay.

The most ridiculous part of the article was when they said, "unity of the Islamic faith". It might just be me, but trying to kill all infidels doesn't seem very unifying.

Quincy Convention and Visitor's Bureau annual report shows $89 million spent on local tourism

The Quincy Convention and Visitor’s Bureau says tourism spending in Adams County was up 7 percent in 2011.

As part of the QCVB’s 2012 Annual Report, tourism spending in Adams County was at $89 million for 2011.

The 7 percent increase was under the state average of 8.4 percent as Illinois saw $31.8 billion spent on tourism last year.

Hancock County tourism was up 5 percent to $25 million and Pike County was up 6 percent to $22 million.

The Hotel/Motel tax generated $793,761 in 2011. Of those funds, the QCVB gets $80,000 and the remainder goes to the Oakley-Lindsay Center and the City of Quincy.

The QCVB’s annual budget is a little more than $208,000.
