William Klingner's name should grace Quincy park

To The Herald-Whig:

Why would you name a city park after someone other than a person who spent his life making our parks and city better?

Lincoln did not land there, so why name it Lincoln's Landing? Aren't there enough places named after President Lincoln?

William H. Klingner gave more of his life and time to Quincy and Quincy's Parks than anyone I know. All of us who knew Bill will always remember the gentleman he was and the dedication he gave Quincy, Quincy Parks and the Mississippi River.

What a fitting tribute it would be to honor his memory than naming this park after him. Please give this consideration.

Silver Saukees: Pittsfield's state title team to reunite after 25 years
Tony Baker recently watched a video of the 1991 Class A state championship game with his 11-year-old daughter. It had been several years since Baker, an all-stater as a senior at Pittsfield High School, had seen the game. "I sure was awful skinny, and those shorts were awful short," he said with a laugh. "But it was neat to watch. It's kind of a blur, but I can remember plays that were called in every game. It's so surreal."
