I worked for a large JAB in KC and it was only a matter of time. The original franchise was set up with JAB and since they were sold to MW in 2014 it is a new ballgame. There are less than 10 franchises and they will be gone when they make ownership changes. MW is all about the bottom line and there will be changes to any stores that don't make it. They recently changed a JAB factory outlet…

Why would the FAA fine them for a self-reported incident? That would really put the kink in self-reporting.

It was an advertising campaign so they went to advertising and travel agencies. And don't confuse non-profits with charities. Blessing is non-profit and they do quite well in the $$ department. And while you could argue charities might be able to use them it wouldn't serve the marketing purpose.

The ironic part is, even they may not be immune to the type of random lawlessness and danger they are creating by these moves. But they'll never understand or believe that. Meanwhile, the common citizen lives in a deteriorating warzone and feels less safe every day. Life in Obama's New Order......

If details aren't available, they can't publish them. No news agency likes speculation. But to satisfy your need, how about: The two victims were trying to hit on his girl friend, who lived next door, and he came to her defense. Will that work for you?

2013 Visitor Spending in Area Generates Over $145 Million

10 months, 4 weeks ago by Scott Hardy

Up nearly 4 per cent in Adams Co

Adams, Pike & Hancock counties generated $145.27 million combined in visitor expenditures last year, with $96 million spent in Adams, up 3.7 %;  $25.82 million in Hancock Co., up 2.3 %;  and $23.45 million in Pike County, up 1.2%.

The Illinois Office of Tourism released the state report last week, prepared by the U.S. Travel Association that indicates that tourism in these three counties supported 1,010 local jobs with a payroll of $28.88 million. The three counties also collected $8.05 million in state sales tax related to tourism and $4.38 million was generated in local sales tax.

With this impressive and steady yearly rise in visitor spending, the Quincy Area Convention & Visitors Bureau continues to beef up marketing efforts to supply travelers with the tools to glean the most they can when visiting the three- county area. “We find the majority of the travelers to the Quincy area are seeking a ‘local’ experience, whether in dining, history or architecture. We’re excited about the release next week of ‘The Local Fix’, our new guide that gives the visitor a true local experience to the over 70 locally-owned eateries in our area,” said Lori Tuttle, Marketing Manager of the Quincy Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.

“We are pleased that Adams County ranked 3rd out of 102 counties in an increase in visitor expenditures, and 22nd among all Illinois counties for overall visitor expenditures. This has a direct effect on the quality of life of Quincy area residents and businesses, creating $28.88 million in tourism-related payroll in Adams, Pike & Hancock Counties,” said Holly Cain, Executive Director of the Quincy Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.
