Since court action has already been filed, I think the government should butt out now and wait for the court decision. As is now the situation seems ripe for some major "grandstanding" by both sides as both try to attain the higher "moral" ground. I will be keeping a barf bag handy.

And to boot that idea assumes the master's degree somehow makes them "better" teachers. I really have to wonder if that is supported by any facts at all. It's teacher attitude that helps drive student performance...not teacher aptitude. If I look back on my favorite teachers (that I think taught me the most) not a one had a master's degree.

Keokuk Lions Club hosts annual chili supper

1 year, 8 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.
