8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

Christmas toy run to benefit The Salvation Army

1 year, 11 months ago by Denise Donley

Planned by the River Roads HOG Chapter 0912

The River Roads Chapter of the Harley Owners Group (HOG) is organizing a Christmas Toy Run to benefit the Quincy and Hannibal Salvation Army’s 2012 Christmas Toy Program.

The Quincy Toy Run will start at 10:00am on Saturday, November 17th when the riders will group at the TNT Dealership at 52nd and Oak in Quincy. The bikes will ride in “parade formation” South on 48th to Maine, West to 5th then north to Vermont and into the Kroc Center parking lot at 405 Vermont. 

Each rider (and passenger) will present a new toy to Salvation Army officials for the Angel Tree Program, which provides toys for families in need. Those riding from TNT to Hannibal will stage at 12:30pm and depart from TNT at 12:45 p.m. to arrive at the Hannibal Walmart at 1:30 pm. From there they will proceed to The Salvation Army at 302 Broadway.

Toys will be distributed on December 21st in Hannibal and December 19th and 20th in Quincy.

Toy Runs have become a part of many HOG chapters’ community efforts world-wide and often include hundreds of motorcycles if weather cooperates.

Good weather or bad, this year’s Toy Run will take place. Salvation Army Major Dan Jennings will participate in both rides.

Area residents who would like to participate can pick up an Angel Tree tag and drop off a new unwrapped toy at TNT Harley Davidson at 5101 Oak Street by the morning of Friday, November 16th.

For more information contact the TNT Dealership at (217) 224-1004.
