Come on man, You got the wierdo Debbie Wasserman, how can you even try to compare to Palin. There arn't enough paper bags at County Market to make Wasserman doable!!

What's hilarious and terrifying at the same time is that Palin was nearly a stroked-out McCain away from being the leader of this country. Think about that whenever her prompter freezes and she has to improv.

I assume she was invited to Iowa because regardless of her elect-ability, she's down to earth, likable, and us commoners can relate to her. She likes to hunt and fish, she doesn't have a perfect family, she makes mistakes, and she's not an elitist Beltway type talking down to us. She's one of us, warts and all. As a bonus, she drives liberals like you insane just by existing. You're…

Wow! He was able to get all the talking points in there. To bad an alderman doesn't have the power to fix the public safety pensions. Oh and if he could put all future police officers on 401k plans, who will fund the pensions for all the current employees? After this interview, it sounds like Heinecke may be the best choice. Sad!!

Cape Air drops fares as September passenger numbers fall

City, airline working to achieve 10,000 passenger to qualify for $1 million subsidy

A decline in passenger boardings at Quincy Regional Airport comes on the heels of a push from the City and Cape Air to still hit 10,000 enplanements this year.

September boardings were down to 775 from 823 in September 2011.

Jeff Steinkamp, interim airport director, said weather was a factor in the drop.

“Passenger Boardings took a moderate decline in September due to several reasons, including the prudent cancelation of seven flights during the past month mostly because of severe weather flying conditions,” Steinkamp said.  “These unsafe conditions were not so much experienced in the Quincy area but mostly in the surrounding St. Louis (Lambert International) Airport vicinity.”

Steinkamp said QRA is still running 8.5% ahead of 2011’s year-to-date boardings at 7,235 passengers and that number is 31% ahead of 2010’s mark.

Andrew Bonney of Cape Air says the price is being reduced on selected St. Louis flights to $39 to help them get to 10,000 so the City can qualify for $1 million of Federal Grant money that can be used for Capital Infrastructure and Safety Improvement Projects.

“This discount fare is our way of saying thanks to the Quincy community for its support as we continue to work for 10,000 enplanements in 2012,” Bonney said.

Steinkamp added that Quincy Mayor John Spring has been working on an incentive with Cape Air in an effort to increase the chances of hitting the 10,000 passenger mark.
