It was May 25, 1978, my first day ever in the City of Quincy having moved here from the Kansas City area. I spent the first week in a hotel trying to find a place to live. I remember being at the intersection of 24th and Harrison at the four-way stop. It felt like I spent three birthdays trying to get through that intersection that day.
Last September I took a little 13 hour drive out of Illinois across Missouri, Kansas and into Colorado. It was funny to notice that the road conditions of each state were somewhat different as we crossed each state's border. Illinois' was the worst by far. It got me to thinking about all the roads and highways there are in this country.
The City of Quincy would like to remind citizens that trash and garbage should be placed in alleys for those residents that normally have alley pick up and where alleys are navigable by trucks. Recycle items and yard waste should be placed at the curb.
Ever since a referendum passed to build a new jail in Adams County there has been conversation as to where it should be built, can the City of Quincy be a part of it by locating the Police Department on that site, and how it should be built.
When I first moved to Quincy many moons ago, the first thing I realized was how easy it was to find things in this city. The streets are numbered from the river to almost Liberty going west to east. And the north-south streets are named after presidents, states or trees. Pretty simple.
