The climate change wackos will do anything to scare people into believing the hoax of global warming, climate change, climate distortion or whatever they call it now days, even naming snow storms and thunder storms. They're a nutty bunch.

It's always amusing to see an article like this one from the Strawman bring the two website champions of the leftwing out of hiding to spread their name-calling and goofy "philosophy". And their lame attempts at liberal humor......just precious. It would actually be comical if not for the fact these two aren't the only ones out there in that group made up of Obama's welfare army,…

But the implications aren't just for Chancelors of Universities. This would have to legally apply to every government job which would certainly impact applications and it will also surely result in some hires being second guessed and place a cloud over the incoming person selected.

Quincy DU chapter earns Top 100 ranking

9 months, 4 weeks ago by

The Top 100 is one of the most highly sought-after titles of recognition Ducks Unlimited offers to its local chapters. Each year, the list is comprised of the top 100 fundraising chapters in the United States that raise up to $100,000 through fundraising activities in their communities. Through the efforts of these volunteer committees DU is able to pursue its mission of conserving, enhancing and restoring North America’s wetlands. In 2013 the Quincy chapter made the Top 100 list as one of the organization’s best fundraising chapters.

“These fundraising events are the backbone of DU’s habitat conservation efforts, and the volunteers who make up these chapters are the force driving DU and helping make a difference for North American waterfowl populations,” said DU President George Dunklin. “It takes a great deal of effort to break into the Top 100, and these chapters deserve to be congratulated by every person who enjoys the outdoors.”

The Quincy chapter earned a spot on the Top 100 list out of the more than 2,600 DU chapters nationwide. DU’s event fundraising system has become a model for other conservation organizations around the world and has funded a significant portion of the more than 13 million acres of wetlands and associated habitat DU has conserved since 1937.

The 2013 Top 100 chapters also have the distinction of being honored during DU’s 77th National Convention in St. Louis at the end of May, with many chapter representatives in attendance.

“DU chapters across the country are showing that the future of waterfowl populations and the wetlands that filter our drinking water and protect us from flooding are important to them and to their communities,” Dunklin said. “The more money we raise, the more habitat we can conserve and the closer we are to preserving our waterfowl hunting heritage. I would like to personally thank all our Top 100 chapters for their achievement and look forward to seeing them among our distinguished chapters next year.”
