Heroes Are Among Us in Quincy

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.

Keep the wreaths red!
Kurt Parsons

The Quincy Fire Department Red Wreaths Need to Remain Red

The Quincy Fire Department has placed wreaths with red lights on them at all of their firehouses around the city of Quincy. The idea is to have nothing but red lights on the wreath which would mean a fire free Christmas season for homes in the city. Any home fires that occur would cause the Fire Department to change one of the red bulbs to a white bulb. So the goal is to keep the wreaths red and not white.

This is How the Teddy Bear Clinic Got Started

Twenty-five years ago I took my 6-year-old daughter to the Peoria Zoo and as chance would have it one of the Peoria hospitals was holding a stuffed animal day at the Zoo. Little did I know 25 years later, the idea that I brought back to Quincy would still be flourishing. I came back to Quincy thinking that this needs to happen in our town, too.  We didn't have a zoo in Quincy but we did have the Animal Park at the Illinois Veteran’s Home.  Armed with ideas during my drive back to Quincy, I went to work to make sure this took place in our town.  I contacted Blessing Hospital and they set me up with a meeting with the right people and “The Teddy Bear Clinic” was born.
