  • This weather is for the birds

    I don't like talking about the weather very much because there's nothing anyone can do about it. Here it is mid-October, almost time for Halloween and the World Series, and it still feels like early August.

    The past weekend was sheer misery for me. I don't like hot weather because it  takes me a long time to cool down. I can always put on enough clothes in winter but getting cool after exposure to extreme heat is a different thing.

  • Quincy city officials look at safety issue at Crossroad Academy

    During a recent meeting of the Quincy city commission, Commissioner Derrick Elias expressed concerns about safety of students at Crossroad Academy, a charter school which recently relocated on Strong Road. He cited the lack of speed reduction signs and no street striping to indicate a school as two areas of concern.

    Ideally, he said, sidewalks should be on Strong Road for the safety of students walking to school. And, he further noted, many children who live across the street at Omega Villas and attend the school are at risk when crossing the street.
