As the March 7 deadline to file papers for the June election approaches, it appears that four men will be running for District 5 supervisor: incumbent Jon Kennedy and challengers Mark Dougan, Jeff Engel and Jim Judd.
Judd had indicated that he would seek the position, but then withdrew that intention, citing a lack of time to adequately build a foundation to address the issues facing the county.

Every February, the firefighters at the Quincy Volunteer Fire Department select the one member who best embodies the mission and values of the department as their choice for Firefighter of the Year.
The announcement is made at the department’s annual installation of officers banquet, held Feb. 15 this year.
The remarks made by Fire Commissioner Chuck Leonhardt as he was making the presentation made it abundantly clear why they nominated Capt. David Schmid as this year’s choice to receive the prestigious award.
