Quinn complains about the Rauner budget after he and his liberal cohorts ran Illinois into the ground spending money we don't have and giving away the farm to public unions. You had your chance Quinn and with a democrat legislature behind you. Between Madigan, Cullerton and Quinn we may never get out of the fiscal hole the democrats created.

And this guy is qualified to be Missouri auditor because? The good old boys club is alive and well in Nixon's administration. All you have to be is a friend of Jay's and you're qualified to be an auditor.

Obama is a narcissistic arrogant fool who isn't qualified to lead America or be commander in chief. He either can't or won't protect America and Americans as evidenced by his open borders policy. Will we have to put boots on the ground to defeat ISIS, likely yes, if they are to be defeated? You don't feed the crocodile hoping it will eat you last.

Keokuk Lions Club hosts annual chili supper

2 years 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.
