OK....safety, security, and human decency. At least somebody has given some "reasons"...almost. #1 Why is the jail less safe now than when it was built? #2 Why is the jail less secure now than when it was built? #3 Why is the jail less humane now than when it was built? (I assume that's what he means when he says "human decency") Those are the questions that the voters need answered to support…

Precisely. This pig was on the scene for hours with the deceased as it laid in the streets. If was so seriously injured why wasn't he seen by the EMTs on the scene. I'll tell you why because this is some BS story concocted later when he realized the depths of the pot of s**t he put hisself in.

Those are actually the rules of the US State Department, so, yeah, that would apply to Ambassadors, too. I don't know what the President or SecState said on any calls. Do you? Just because they're not out making speeches about it in front of cameras doesn't mean they're not trying to work back-channel deals. But whether they are or not is moot. Expecting them too is foolish, because…

Quincy springs into action at the 5th annual AIM for the CURE walk

5 months ago from Aim for the Cure

Family friendly walk will raise funds to support research for the CURE of melanoma

AIM at Melanoma, a nonprofit organization and leader at the forefront of research, education, legislation, and awareness will see hundreds of walkers on April 5, 2014 at its 5th annual charity walk at South Park located at 12th and Harrison streets in Quincy. All proceeds from the walk will benefit ongoing research to find the CURE for melanoma – a deadly form of skin cancer.

In 2009, Quincy launched its first AIM for the CURE Melanoma Walk in honor of Jim Schlipmann, the brother of walk coordinator Jean Anne Cook, who lost his battle with melanoma at only 44 years young. Melanoma is the deadliest type of skin cancer in the U.S. according to the CDC. The National Cancer Institute estimates in 2014 there will be 76,100 new cases and 9,710 deaths. One of the fastest growing cancers in the U.S., the American Cancer Society states that melanoma is the most common cancer in adolescents and young adults and the numbers are soaring. In its advanced forms – even with treatment and surgery – the survival rate five years after diagnosis is less than 5 percent.

AIM funds melanoma research, provides education and comprehensive and accessible resources for patients, survivors and caregivers. AIM championed landmark legislation prohibiting minors from using indoor tanning salons and ushered in legislation requiring insurers to provide coverage for oral medication that is equivalent to conventional intravenous drugs used in chemotherapy.

Walk registration sign-in begins at 8:00 a.m. and activities will kick off with free Derma Scans provided by Community Outreach Educator, Stephanie Wiley. Also on site providing free skin cancer screenings will be Karilyn Crook, PA-C from Quincy Medical Group. The opening ceremony will begin at 9:00 am and this year’s walk will be emceed by Steve Felde, Sr. Communications Specialist from Blessing Hospital. Registration is free however participants are encouraged to raise at least $50. “We encourage participants to walk in honor of a melanoma patient or survivor, in loving memory of someone special who lost their battle with this disease or just to show their support and create awareness,” said AIM Co-Founder Jean Schlipmann.


AIM at Melanoma, founded in memory of Charlie Guild, who died of melanoma at the age of 26 and Jim Schlipmann, who died from the disease at 44, is the largest international melanoma foundation focused on melanoma research, education, legislation, and awareness. The foundation supports melanoma research efforts by hosting international research forums and is helping to create the first international melanoma tissue bank, widely believed by the oncology community to be a key to major breakthroughs in melanoma research.
