It's hard to believe that we are approaching the end of August and the beginning of football season. With kickoffs coming up, let the tailgating begin! Quincy High School Blue Devil fans and Quincy Notre Dame Raider fans will be firing up those grills prior to games this fall, but who tailgates better?
I was talking with some people about some of the events coming up in the weeks ahead, and a comment came about the events that we no longer have. So we started reeling off one event after another that no longer takes place in the area, but was very popular when it was held years ago. The first one mentioned was the World Free Fall Skydiving Convention at the Quincy Airport. Another one was the South Park Go Kart Races.

I hope you have had the opportunity to view what they are calling the “supermoon” the last couple of days. I happened to see it Sunday night when it magically appeared over the right field fence at Q.U. Stadium while I was watching the Quincy Gems play baseball. It was quite a sight.
The summer tradition of Blues in the District continues tonight when Marquise Knox performs in a free concert at Washington Park. Marquise was born and raised in St. Louis and handles his guitar with the best of them. A guitar he learned to play from his grandmother. With Knox's performance tonight only two more Blues in the District events remain for the summer.
It's hard to find other New York Yankee fans in this area besides me, but finding fans of Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter is easy. Actually, you would be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't like the future Hall of Famer.
