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.

Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
