Well he certainly covered some ground unlike his partner. I would certainly love to commend both the Marshals and local authorities on well conducted communications in an expedited effort to capture Kelly despite him quickly heading south eastward.

It's a cascading problem. Starting in the late 70s, early 80s, hunting became less and less. Parents stopped teaching their kids about firearms and gun safety, and the world because more suburban. Now those kids are adults and the only thing they know about guns is what they get in movies. And so they teach their kids that guns are bad, and the problem worsens. It's not any one thing causing…

Well I'm certainly glad I've long since lost/misplaced my childhood super soakers and cap gun. I'd hate to think I could potentially be punished by law for having had those 'out in the yard'. Yet again, policy makers grasping for straws. What next? My metallic painted handcuffs that have a release switch on the side? Are they going to deem my having those as impersonating…

Wait... we're out of the recession? Why, because Obama says so? Comes as a surprise to most of us, I'm sure.

Because they also push those who don't qualify to sign up. You really think 58% of the kids come from families that can't afford lunches? I know people who take yearly family vacations and have a boat sitting in their driveway that are on free/reduced. If they truly "qualify" based on the guidelines, then there are problems with the guidelines. Also, just because the guidelines allow you…

Plan Commission approves zoning changes for Cathedral of Worship

Subdivision and church in the works on South 36th

The Quincy Plan Commission in brief session Tuesday night supported several requests.

The Commission voted for a zoning change and subdivision approval for an area west of South 36th Street and north of the Chapel Valley subdivision. Bishop E.L. Warren, with The Cathedral of Worship, asked for a zoning change to single-family residential from rural for a 12.55 acre, L-shaped parcel. The remaining acreage of the parcel doesn't need a zoning change. They've plans to build a worship center in a later phase of development.

Warren has been planning for the past two years for this 27-lot subdivision, to be known as Kingdom Estates.

According to paperwork prepared by the City's Planning and Development staff, the lots will be arranged along a street extending west from South 36th Street, then curving to the south and ending in a cul-de-sac.

Warren, who had numerous chairs in Council chambers filled in support of him, did not address the Commission himself. Tony Crane with Architechnics told the members that Warren held a neighborhood meeting in September where he talked with area residents about the plan. It was attended by about 60 people, Crane said. No one spoke against his requests. The Commission's recommendations will go before the City Council Monday night for final action.

Former Mayor Chuck Scholz spoke on the record in support of Warren.

He said Warren and his Church have done positive things for the community and his ministry was important.

"I have full confidence this will be a high-quality development and I urge the Commission to grant the petitioner's requests," he said.

Commissioners also gave their support to a request from Blessing Hospital. Officials want to build a 160-stall parking lot that would be located at the northwest corner of North 11th and College Ave. and the southwest corner of North 11th and Elm.

They also approved a special permit to Jerry and Julie Smith, who will be moving their Advantage termite and pest control business from the 900 block of Maine to 634 South 11th St.
