Cordell, Do you think any of his policies are working? If so, which ones?

I believe if you check, you will find that Property Developers are required by City Code to put in sidewalks at their expense unless they get a waiver from that part of the code. Once the sidewalks are in, they become the city's responsibility to maintain.

Does anyone else remember that much (most?) of the land the Kroc Center now occupies was formerly Salvation Army property and thus exempt from taxation all along? That would seem to mitigate some of the tax issues some on here are so jacked up about. If I am in error, I welcome correction and/or dissenting opinions.

Well, you're too sharp for me. I was just trying to relieve that longing. I know how much that can hurt.

Well that guy asked for a gift of money to build his building. So yeah, many objected. The city proposed making it a loan and he backed out. To the best of my knowledge the Kroc center never asked for a thing. It's the city that put proposed putting in the sidewalks since they own that part of the property...just like they own the sidewalks in all the city right of way. Now...since sidewalks…

Christmas toy run to benefit The Salvation Army

2 years, 6 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.
