Quotes

...clubhouse, see the field where we launched some pretty big (playoff) home runs in the postseason in 2011, see people I remember well," Kruzel said. "But (this weekend in Peoria) will be the first time I see that organization since 2012, and it will bring back some memories. "They are different players and affiliate, but I'll still remember my time there as a great time in my career." Peoria's series finale against Cedar Rapids was postponed on Thursday after about a 90-minute delay from the start time. Cedar Rapids does not return to Peoria in the first half of the season. So the game will be made up as part of a double-header when the Chiefs visit Cedar Rapids, most likely next weekend. Fans holding tickets for Thursday's game get a rain check for any future game in Peoria. "Biggest thing I remember about my time in Quad Cities was how the people there (in the front office) treated us," Kruzel said. "The ownership, the staff, they were first class, very professional. The fans were great, and the team tried to build each night around being a great experience for them." Quad Cities swept through the 2011 playoffs, 7-0, knocking out Clinton, Kane County, and Lansing on the way to the title. "I remember a home run Nick Longmire hit against Kane County, a big moment," said Kruzel, referring to a 3-run, walk-off homer hit by the Quad Cities center fielder to send the Bandits into the title round. "I remember the night of the championship, the clubhouse all covered up with plastic, waiting for the champagne celebration. "A lot of good times there." CHIEFS BRIEFS: The Chiefs earned a rain-abbreviated series sweep over Cedar Rapids, taking all three games for their first sweep of the Kernels since July 7-9, 2007. ... Quad Cities was rained out at Clinton on Thursday. ... The River Bandits are the defending Midwest League champions, and have six players and their entire coaching staff returning for the 2014 season. ... Quad Cities shortstop Thomas Lindauer is a Moline native, and brings a .429 batting average into the Peoria series Friday. Dave Eminian can be reached at 686-3206 or deminian@pjstar.com. Check out his sports blog, Cleve's World, at pjstar.com and follow him on Twitter @icetimecleve."
"If you drive, you already know the state of Michigan roads,” said Denise Donohue, Director of the County Road Association of Michigan. “You can't get five people together at the water cooler or a family party that somebody hasn't had a flat tire, a bent wheel, a bent rim, a broken wheel, a front alignment problem. There are people out there not buying cars because of Michigan roads and that's not good for Michigan's economy.”"
"This is a very serious problem, we're going to lose businesses and we're going to lose a lot of employment if it goes through in the matter that it's written" Jones said
"We need a check and balance on a Republican-dominated Legislature, governor and even the state Supreme Court," Dillard said. "We need an attorney general that's going to argue the law without partisanship."
