Just wondering, but why do you think this sounds like a bad idea? The kids get to play football, they might get a little more exposure as players than they would just sticking around here. I mean, travel does always have some risk, but that's applicable whether it's a school trip or a family vacation. I guess I just don't see why this is worse than, say, traveling to Chicago or something.

Sorry, but I'm not as forgiving as you are. You say "it's not like they want their baby dead". What do you think dropping a baby into a dumpster is intended to accomplish? They wanted that baby dead, no doubt about. Oh, and as for your other statement, "I can't imagine any mother would choose to let their child die if they had the other clear option". Babies are killed in the name of…

Seems maybe a little over the top. Even if boosters pick up the tab. Might even help a few students with tuition.

There is that "mass of cells" crowd that would allow even late term abortion. But someone that has carried to term and delivered almost certainly doesn't realize they could save the child and not be condemned or jailed. They are just ignorant and/or desperate. I guess they delivered outside a hospital? That is certainly trauma now, despite our grandparents doing it routinely. While the law…

Former Holidome and City Center facility should be fully renovated this summer

The former Holiday Inn Holidome will become a Quality Inn & Suites, according to the company that purchased the property last year.

Tracy Holdings, LLC, doing business as Great River Hospitality, has announced that it signed a franchise agreement with Choice Hotels, which has Quality Inn and Suites as part of its hospitality portfolio.

Tracy Holdings purchased the 145 room property from Abbott Development in late October when it had no franchise agreement and was called The City Center Hotel. It was originally built as a Holiday Inn in 1984 and owned and operated by the Albanese family out of Springfield, IL. Marine Bank, out of Springfield, took over the property and sold it to Abbott Development in 2008. 

“The property has a lot of potential and is well built”, said Stan Seibert, General Manager of Tracy Holdings. “We shut down the property on November 15th and have been working hard to clean all areas, update equipment and systems and finish renovations on several rooms. We plan a soft opening with 60 newly renovated rooms in January. and will finish the rest of the rooms and start flying the Quality Inn & Suites flag by summer.  

Quality Inn & Suites is a mid-market hotel chain that will feature family friendly rooms, extended stay suites and a designated floor for business travelers.  The property will offer “Choice Privileges”; a free premire rewards program that can be redeemed for free nights, airline miles, gift certificates and more.  Property amenities will include a complimentarty hot breakfast bar, fitness center, indoor swimming pool, business center, meeting and banquet facilities and complimentary WiFi. 

“It is an excellent location and we just need to finish the work that was stalled several years ago”, said Joe Tracy, Owner of Tracy Holdings. “It will take most of 2014 to finish all the rooms and the banquet space but I am excited about the plan”.
