Schock has never been a conservative. He is a ladder-climbing socialite, preying on the Republican left-of-center voters, and the right-leaning that don't see his ploy, "or don't care). Whatever, it's not like he's different from the run-of-the-mill Republican OR Democrat, so I'm sure he'll weather this storm until he post pics of his dick, or is caught whorin'. AND…

Kudos to the QFD for teaching fire safety to our children and I hope they talked about smoke detectors, which I'm sure they did. Smoke detectors the first line of defense against house fires should be on every floor and near or in every bedroom. Install working smoke detectors in your home and keep your family safe.

It's one thing to think he's getting the rich to pay their fair share in a liberals world but the rich already pay most of the taxes. Even if you agree with the corrupt Madigan, the only people who will benefit from such a tax is Madigan and the rest of the corrupt politicians. They'll waste it and buy votes with the money not solve our fiscal problems in Illinois.

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.
