The Quincy Herald-Whig is seeking nominations for its "20 under 40" awards that honor local business and community leaders.

The Herald-Whig is creating this special publication to honor people under the age of 40 in west-central Illinois and northeast Missouri who make differences in many ways. We are asking our readers to submit the names of people who have been successful in the business world while also being active leaders in our communities.

Candidates should have achieved measurable professional success. Also include the nominee's involvement in community service and volunteering.

Candidates must reside within The Herald-Whig's circulation area (Adams, Hancock, Brown and Pike in Illinois; Lewis, Clark, Marion, Knox, Shelby, Scotland, Pike and Ralls in Missouri).

Nominees must be 39 years of age or younger as of Sept. 27, 2015.

  • Fourth of July about more than fireworks

    Fourth of July about more than fireworks

    Sure, the Fourth of July fireworks were impressive as expected Saturday night at the Illinois Veterans Home. So were all of the trappings that accompanied the celebration, from the on-stage musical entertainment to the concessions and other attractions. Possibly lost to some, however, were the memories and sacrifices that are a part of many lives on a day such as July 4, especially at a site like the Veterans Home.

    Like many others on Quincys northwest side on Saturday night, David Goellnitz and his family were outside their apartment at 637 College enjoying the weather and getting ready to watch the citys annual Fourth of July fireworks display. Just before 8:30 p.m., Goellnitz heard a sound that he knew wasnt fireworks. Seconds later, he came across a shooting scene at 635 College. Gavin J. Masters, 18, of Quincy faces murder charges as the result of the shooting.
