There is so much more to this. This was no random shooting. Someone was targeted and I don't think it was the child. Shame on a lot of people who only look at the surface and fail to see the REAL issues here. Amerika has LOST its moral compass.

A record low national job participation rate of 62.8 percent in February and we're to believe jobs have increased and unemployment has gone down. Something is rotten in the numbers and government.

Yep, businesses are going to ignore the anti-business tax climate of Illinois and line up to move to Quincy due to our All-America city status. If only that were true. Again with your slum-lords. Why don't you name one or give us an address so we can drive past and see what you're talking about?

You couldn't be more wrong, as usual. I own part of my home, and the bank owns the rest. Not a realtor, not a landlord. You said there was lack of police presence due to funding, and I asked what you meant by that. Are you saying that funding cuts have reduced police presence, or that you think there needs to be an increased presence, hence additional funding is required? It's pretty obvious…

Site selection for new Louisiana Bridge moved up

1 year, 1 month ago by Brent Engel

Work can’t begin until money is found to pay for it

  Site selection for a new Louisiana bridge has been moved up a few months, but work can’t begin until money is found to pay for it.

   The Missouri Department of Transportation originally projected picking a route by the middle of 2015, but that date has been moved to later this year.

   There are three construction options. Two would go north of the existing Champ Clark Bridge and one would be south of it.

   An environmental study will be completed soon. After that, there won’t be much work done on the project without an influx of state or national funding to boost the state’s transportation budget.

   A replacement for the 86-year-old Champ Clark Bridge is considered a statewide priority. The span is only 20 feet wide, and prompted safety concerns after a deadly 2011 accident that led to a pending federal lawsuit.

   A state engineer on the project said the department is doing as much as it can now because it wants to be ready to proceed if funding comes through.
