"You don't get indicted on nothing." Tell that to Rick Perry or Tom Delay before him. Innocent people get indicted all the time...not that it applies in this situation or doesn't apply.

I can't help but believe that if the mother who abandoned this little baby had known about the law, she wouldn't now be being tracked down by the police. The Baby Safe Haven law offers a safe, legal, option for a desperate parent in crisis. The law says a parent hand their unharmed baby, 30 days old or younger, to staff at a hospital, fire or police department. No questions asked. Thanks…

Dick "Pee Wee" Durbin apparently doesn't see taxes as a problem - no mention of it in his statement. Maybe the problem of "jobs that don't pay enough money" would decrease if the taxes that come out of this pay are decreased.

Bike for Food raises $23,000

1 year, 7 months ago by Denise Donley

Western Catholic Union President Mark Wiewel biked six days during June 2012

A local man has helped raise more than $23,000 for area charities with his annual bike ride.

Western Catholic Union President Mark Wiewel biked six days during June 2012 from Dixon to Savanna, Quad Cities and back to Dixon, IL to raise money for Quincy area food pantries.

Wiewel said he rides his bike for charity because he wanted to find a way to raise money while doing something he likes to do.

The 310 mile Bike for Food charity ride through Illinois raised $23,053, but Wiewel said there’s still a great need to help our local food pantries.

“In talking with a number of the food pantries, there is so much more need now than what there has been in the past and the need continues to grow,” said Wiewel. “By the WCU Bike for Food, we have the people donate the money directly to the food pantry so they get the money up front as they receive them and they’re able to put that to work.”

Western Catholic Union matched donations up to $500 for each pantry.

Total amounts raised by each pantry, including WCU’s contributions are:


                      $2,075 for Canton Council of Churches in Canton
                      $1,425 for Douglas Community Center in Hannibal
                      $2,041 for Palmyra Food Pantry in Palmyra
                      $1,055 for Horizons Social Services in Quincy
                      $2,700 for Ladies of Charity in Quincy
                      $1,500 for Madonna House in Quincy
                      $1,192 for Quanada in Quincy
                      $3.762 for Quincy Catholic Charities
                      $6,805 for St. Francis Food Pantry

                      $498 for Quincy Salvation Army

Wiewel has been riding for charities since 2006 and plans to continue riding for the cause in 2013.
