On Wednesday, a Quincy man and his young child died in a fire at 515 South 17th Street. The call came in around 2:40 a.m. Quincy Police were on the scene first and pulled a person out of a window. That person told the police there were two others in the back of the house. The Quincy Fire Department arrived and pulled the other two out. They were taken by ambulance to Blessing Hospital. 25-year-old old Daniel S. Dissler and four-month-old Hunter Dissler did not survive the fire. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

The year was 1974. The city was Lowell, Michigan. The location was Scott McNeal's driveway. The participants were 17 of his friends. Combine all that and you had the start of Gus Macker, but how did it get to Quincy?
The Quincy Exchange Club is actively addressing a major concern about the Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament which is set for May 24 and 25. That concern is the officiating that has taken place over the years, which has led to some "rough" play on the courts. That major concern was addressed and the Exchange Club has done away with volunteer court officials called "Gus Busters." This year's tournament will have registered officials working on all youth and adult courts.
As the weather warms, I start thinking about sitting next to "My Rock" during Blues in the District in Washington Park. The first performance of the year in what has become a Quincy tradition will be on June 13 .
