WOW-- so you give some links to stories of a few that acted incorrectly. Who arrested them, for them to plead guilty? POLICE Anyone can sue, rightly or wrongly, and big cities settle suits all the time, even those without a shred of merit. Police are human, and other police catch them and arrest them, or fire them. NYC has between 30.000 and 40,000 police, Chicago has between 8,000 and 13,500, LA…

one case comes to mind, the woman was certifiable, manic, and frequently hitting. Once he said "what's good for the goose is good for the gander" ... hit back but didn't hurt. That was all she wrote ... as if she was ready and had a game plan. Ran out all histrionic, called cops, badda bing badda boom ... got her divorce, money, easy peasy for the lawyers. The fact she was manic, domineering,…

If you mean you have no proof they pulled you over you're wrong. All stops are recorded video/audio as long as the lights are on. And if you ever get pulled over for no reason feel free to complain to the chief. If there's an officer doing that and multiple reports show up it will catch up to them.

Well, you'd better get used to that one: The woman slapping the hell outta the man and him going to jail for deflecting the blows. Not to say this is always, or even often the case, but it's worth considering.

Make reservations now for last Walking Tour of 2014

1 month ago from Historical Society of Quincy and Adams Co

The tour will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, September 6 at the Historical Society’s Visitors Center

The Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County will host the final walking tour of the season on Saturday, September 6.  The tour will begin at 10 a.m. at the Historical Society’s Visitors Center, 425 South 12th Street.  The tours are $6 for members of the HSQAC and $10 for non members.  Membership applications will be available for those wishing to join that day. 

Those going on the tours are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes and have the ability to climb stairs and walk at least one mile.  Many times home owners will invite tour goers to come inside and see their home. Children are welcome and are charged the same as adults.  Following the tour, participants will return to the John Wood Mansion and will be welcome to tour it and/or shop in the Visitor’s Center gift shop.

The September 6th tour will feature the Schott Family and their homes along with other homes in the neighborhood.  J.B. Schott Manufacturing Company began in 1848 in the Schleich Tannery at 6th and State and became known throughout the country for their handmade and hand tooled saddles made in hundreds of styles.  The Civil war had Schott’s tannery operating at full capacity.  The Schott Mansion located at 1421 State is surrounded by the homes built by their adult children.  Most of these homes are located behind the mansion on Kentucky Street. 

The tours will be led by Vicki Ebbing who was the former Executive Director of the Gardner Museum of Architecture and Design.  Ebbing stated “The First Saturday Tours were very popular during my tenure at the Gardner.  Since becoming a member of the board of directors of the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County I volunteered to resurrect the tours on a smaller scale.  These tours are a great way to learn some in depth information about the City that we all think we know.” 

Reservations are requested for the tour and can be made by calling 222-1835 or email at info@hsqac.org.  Free parking is available in the Historical Society’s lot behind the John Wood Mansion or off the alley just north of the Osage Orangerie.  The tours take place rain or shine unless storming. For additional information please call the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County at 222-1835.
