What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count
ONCEMORE1 - Votes for Republicans switched to Democrats in Moline - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
This goes well beyond the "hanging chad" debacle, this is a deliberate effort to weight the results in favor of the Democrats. The size of the target on a touchscreen is easily manipulated so that if the D spot is half or most of the screen and the R spot is a tiny area of the actual "sweet spot", the results are controlled by the administrator and not the voter-------who just "happens" to be…

If there was a chance in Hell your Third-Party candidate might actually win, I'd be right there with you, but you have to face the fact there ISN"T. Why is it that the typical Third Party frontrunner, usually Libertarian, shares many ideals with the Republican Party, siphons votes away from the Republicans and even receives support from the DNC and Unions to do so? The folly in…
qfingers - Business owners split over minimum wage votes - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Jarosch above inadvertently elucidated the reason why minimum wage is BAD. He says people would leave his store to work somewhere with higher wage....but when everybody pays minimum wage there are no other high-paying jobs. If you get rid of minimum wage businesses would pay what people are willing to work for and wages would vary...some up...some down...and overall employment would increase.

Midsummer Arts Faire announces Mark and Gail Ehrhart as 2014 Honorary Chairs

6 months, 3 weeks ago by

The Faire will be held on June 27th, 28th & 29th in Quincy’s Washington Park

The Midsummer Arts Faire board of directors is pleased to announce that Mark and Gail Ehrhart will be the Honorary Chairs for the 11th annual Midsummer Arts Faire. The Faire will be held on June 27th, 28th & 29th in Quincy’s Washington Park. The juried fine art exhibit and sale will feature 60 fine artists from around the Midwest.

The Ehrharts, both native Quincyans, are dedicated and longtime supporters of the local arts community. Gail attended Quincy Senior High School, Maryville University, and Quincy University. She enjoys participating in the Quincy Art Center classes with her children, Marcus and Nicole, and loves seeing their appreciation for art flourish as they get older. Mark attended Quincy Catholic Boys High School and the University of Illinois in Champaign. 

The Ehrharts’ passion to support the Midsummer Arts Faire, its vendors and the community has continually grown each year since its inception. Together with his two brothers and their wives, Rick and Laura, and Matt and Kandi Ehrhart, the family truly enjoys supporting the Quincy community. Their family business, Kohl Wholesale and Kohl Cash & Carry Showroom, sponsors a variety of local area organizations including: Historic Quincy Business District, Salvation Army Kroc Center, Quincy Historical Society, Quincy Society of Fine Arts, Quincy Chamber of Commerce and Quincy Community Theatre.  The family business has sponsored a number of community events including the Midsummer Arts Faire, Blues in the District, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and many more.  The Ehrhart family’s lifelong appreciation for the arts and Quincy is continually showcased through their tradition of supporting and attending community art events.

“We are honored to chair the Midsummer Arts Faire this year and are excited to see the arts continue to succeed here in our community,” say the Ehrharts. “We look forward to seeing everyone at the Midsummer Arts Faire the last weekend in June. Save the date.”

The Midsummer Arts Faire features artists from throughout the Midwest representing a variety of media including, but not limited to, glass, photography, painting, wood, jewelry, clay, drawing, fiber, sculpture and mixed media. Artists are in their booths throughout the Faire to talk to the public about their work. Some artists offer demonstrations of their techniques. This year’s 60 participating artists will be announced on www.artsfaire.org in the coming weeks. Live music, hands-on art activities for all ages and a local food court complement the artwork.

A regional event of the magnitude of the Faire could not happen without the generous support of the community. For more information about donating to help grow the Faire and draw attention to our region’s high quality of life and love of the arts, please contact the Midsummer Arts Faire at info@artsfaire.org or 217.779.2285.
