Cahokia High School's sports programs hang in the balance. Oh yeah, makes perfect sense to pay almost 1/2 a million to dig a ditch. The state of Illinois is not taking care of the education or well being of our children. Sports are how many in our area go to college. All the money for schools is going up North. Our children deserve better, Cahokia deserves better! It seems anything else they can spend money on is where it all goes. How sad. Thank you Quinn for showing us where you priorities are and aren't!

I'm happy for the Cahokia Airport. It is the third largest airport in Illinois. Many people choose to fly into our airport, rather than to land at Lambert. Cahokia is lucky to have this airport. The Director and all of the airport employees are hard workers and deserve two thumbs up.
I agree with you and no doubt get bashed for saying so but look at the facts.
That is a growing area around the airport that is bringing in new business, new jobs and much needed work to our area and they pay taxes as well. Look at all the people who have decent jobs and can support their familys because of that development in that area.
Common sense tells you to put money into a growing industry and that will attract more business.
