8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

Concerts in the Plaza start TODAY in Downtown Quincy

they will be held at the First Mid-Illinois Bank Plaza on Maine Street, next to St. Boniface Church

The Historic Quincy Business District is pleased to announce that they will be sponsoring the Concerts in the Plaza Series starting TODAY! Concerts on the Plaza will take place each Thursday starting next week through the end of June. They will be held at the First Mid-Illinois Bank Plaza on Maine Street, next to St. Boniface Church.

 

The Historic Quincy Business District has been contemplating the concerts for a few years now. In talking to people the concerts in the plaza are a frequent topic. Many people remember the concerts that used to take place there, and we are excited to be bringing them back. The concerts will be from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM each Thursday and feature various performers from the community. This year's lineup will be:

            May 22 - Rodney Hart

            May 29 - Quincy Symphony Orchestra Quartet

            June 5 - Liz Bentley

            June 12 - Vancil Performing Arts Center

            June 19 - Cheryl Kaiser School of Dance

            June 26 - Rodney Hart & Paul Wood

 

In addition to the acts on stage, the Historic Quincy Business District has arranged for food trucks to be associated with the concert series. The organization has confirmed that four food trucks (The Butcher Block, The Quick Course, Hank's Curbside Canteen, and Hotdogs-R-Us) will be in attendance to serve patrons that are attending the concerts. We feel that having these food vendors all in one spot and providing a great variety will enhance the experience for concert goers. 

            

The concerts are sponsored by the Historic Quincy Business District and the First Mid-Illinois Bank. We are so thankful to have the bank's support as we bring back this concert series. From the minute we approached them they have been involved and working with us to make this happen. They are a wonderful community partner and we are thrilled to have them downtown.
