    Mary Ann Klein knows that civic participation moves communities forward. Klein, president of the League of Women Voters of Adams County, joined the organization more than two decades ago to help further the work it was doing in the area. That spirit led Klein to be named the 2015 recipient of the Evelyn Sacadat Award for Community Leadership, an honor the League has bestowed on three others.

    The Crossing's thrift store up and running at historic 909 Maine site

    The Crossing's new site for one of its thrift stores opened Aug. 19 at 909 Maine. While the logistics of the relocation from 727 Locust will remain a work in progress for a few more days, the new store already has a comfortable feel. "We have more room, and we also feel the store (in downtown Quincy) is a good fit for the community," manager Angela Fox said. "There is much more parking available near the store."
