The tone of both your posts on this topic indicate a disdain for the unequal distribution of federal taxes paid back to the States that paid them. I feel many on this site share that feeling. But by not mentioning the other, more personal disparity of the Government's virtual seizure of working people's earned income through taxation and subsequent distribution to non-workers, non-earners,…

I don't believe employees are allowed to have/use cellphones in the courtrooms. That's where they're not allowed. I've been in a lot of the other offices - with my phone - that are in the courthouse. The restriction is specifically for the disturbance that you KNOW would be caused in courtrooms. And that's not even talking about people that would try and be a-holes recording…

Videoing Quinn is hardly a crime and I thought politicians wanted transparency. If Quinn can't speak and have his remarks taped , maybe he has something to hide.
pjohnf - Too many governments? Downstate has the biggest share - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Us down staters like local control and certainly don't want the state to control any of our taxing bodies. We may have too many tax bodies but it gives us local control which is good thing. Centralization is a bad thing as shown by the Obama government and the Quinn/Madigan cabal which are out of control. The corrupt Chicago thug democrats have virtually destroyed Illinois and we in down state…

Keokuk Lions Club hosts annual chili supper

1 year, 5 months ago by Denise Donley

Tickets, as always, are $5

This is the season for chili and, once again, the Keokuk Lions Club has begun preparations for their Annual Grand Lunch Chili Supper according to project chairman, Howie Sutlive. 

“This is a fund-raising project for the sight-saving projects our Lions Club undertakes every year,” Sutlive explained. “We work as a team to cook and serve chili using the actual recipe from the former Grand Lunch Diner here in Keokuk.  We even give you the option of beans or no beans.”

This year’s event will be held on February 1 beginning at 11 a.m. and running until 6:30 p.m.  Sutlive said, “Two years ago we began holding the event at the First Christian Church. The facilities there make it much easier to prepare and serve, so we are there again this year”.

Steve Derr, Event Ticket Chair, reminded, “We will prepare large orders for pick up.  It is not unusual for businesses and industries in the area to order large quantities of meals to serve to employees at the lunch hour.  If you would like to put in a group order, please do it in advance so our volunteers can have enough time to prepare and package your order.”

“ Tickets can be purchased from any Lions member”, Derr said, “ and you can phone in an order by calling 319-524-6334”.

Cost of tickets remains $5 as it has been in the past.
