  • School District lays off 49 workers

    Faced with a $1.3 million budget deficit, the Gadsden County School District has cut 49 positions, approximately 5 percent of its workers.

    Superintendent Reginald James confirmed the layoffs this week, which span a variety of positions.

    "We have no real recourse other they to try and reduce personal," said James. "There is no way we can make up the gap in the budget without doing this, there is no other way to do it."

    Salaries and benefits make up about 80 percent of all district expenses.

  • Along Twin Ports Road

    “Am I lucky, or what?” I said to myself as I drove my shiny red sports car along Kamehameha Highway in Hawaii. I was on my way to find a date with some gorgeous girl on Waikiki Beach.

     

    The sun was shining in that big, beautiful Hawaiian sky. The birds were singing, and the engine in my 1960 TR3 (Triumph) was purring. I had the top down, and I was feeling on top of the world.

     

    My good buddy, Keith Tennier, was stationed aboard a Coast Guard buoy tender, the Basswood, and would be out to sea for about three months.

    City officials need to step up and do something

    I have lived in Quincy all of my life and up until a few years ago, I have loved living here. We have some very noisy neighbors that have moved in and set up a dance hall across from Kelly’s Jr. No. 9.

    Every weekend this so-called music is so loud you can’t sleep. This goes on until 2:30 and 3 a.m. I have called the police every weekend. Sometimes they might come out, but most of the time they don’t.
