Fine let's make the IHSA open their books and meetings to scrutiny but state government should not be allowed to control high school sports. Government screws up everything it touches and we don't need state government screwing up high school sports too.

How about if they get food stamps and a free lunch, the food stamp amount if lowered by what the free lunches cost. As that is double dipping. WHY should the taxpayers have to pay them twice of more for the same thing?

If you get more then you paid in, it is an ENTITLEMENT. As it is someone else's money. If you get a deduction, you get to keep more of YOUR money. Liberals think the money people earn belongs to the government or other people, so if you get to keep some of the money you earn, liberals view that as an entitlement. There in lies the problem with this country. If you earn the money and you get…

These kids would do fine on rice, beans, PBJ and any number of CHEAP healthy foods that people have been getting by on for millennia. I know. My parents raised 6 and everyone of us was skinny, healthy, and had a full stomach every day. We were eligible for every program out there at the time, but my father would have none of it. We packed our lunches until the school system wouldn't allow it.…

There should be no cheating of course, but this is one place where tax money goes directly to making it a little easier to raise kids. I'm for that. I'm for a subsidy/entitlement/credit whatever ... for families raising children, even if they have seemingly marginal need. Money for school lunches is a rather direct way of providing that, with no way to directly divert that money. I guess…

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

3 months, 2 weeks ago by 0

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.
