Please also keep in mind that 40% of sales tax revenue in Adams county comes from citizens who live OUTSIDE of Adams county who come here from Missouri and surrounding counties to shop and spend their money. So the cost of this project to the residents and taxpayers of Adams County is only about $15M. Granted, those traveling here might not be able to spend as much if the tax is more, but I doubt someone…

Between chestnut and locust and 2nd to 12th, this area was on the upswing with three nursing homes and working class homeowners. Now with slum lords moving into the area like vultures buying up these properties choking the last cent from them, forcing land owners out of there homes due to the garbage and decay of the rental houses near to them, renters have no respect for the land owners that live…
pjohnf - Google controls what we buy, the news we read — and Obama’s policies - Quincy, IL News -
Any company in bed with politicians of any stripe is bad for American's but government control of the internet is bad news. Just as shown here government control of the flow of information in collusion with Goggle is biased and one sided. Of course you don't have to use Google but with Google writing the rules it gives them and government unfair advantage and control. What's the solution,…

Why is this comment even allowed? QJ should use some editorial judgement before they allow crap like this that is known to be completely false and can be verified as false with one phone call to the police. This is disgusting.

CC1 had valid points but I feel that the jail is needed and maybe the price tag can be reduced. A quarter of cent isn't much until you add it up but the need for a new jail outweighs the cost. Yes many taxes once instituted never seem to go away but we will have chance to get rid of politicians who renege on their promise to stop the tax once the jail is paid for. It's different than state…

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.
