I worked for a large JAB in KC and it was only a matter of time. The original franchise was set up with JAB and since they were sold to MW in 2014 it is a new ballgame. There are less than 10 franchises and they will be gone when they make ownership changes. MW is all about the bottom line and there will be changes to any stores that don't make it. They recently changed a JAB factory outlet…

Why would the FAA fine them for a self-reported incident? That would really put the kink in self-reporting.

It was an advertising campaign so they went to advertising and travel agencies. And don't confuse non-profits with charities. Blessing is non-profit and they do quite well in the $$ department. And while you could argue charities might be able to use them it wouldn't serve the marketing purpose.

The ironic part is, even they may not be immune to the type of random lawlessness and danger they are creating by these moves. But they'll never understand or believe that. Meanwhile, the common citizen lives in a deteriorating warzone and feels less safe every day. Life in Obama's New Order......

If details aren't available, they can't publish them. No news agency likes speculation. But to satisfy your need, how about: The two victims were trying to hit on his girl friend, who lived next door, and he came to her defense. Will that work for you?

Illinois announced $2.9 Million for road projects in Western Illinois

1 year, 4 months ago by Denise Donley

Includes work in Adams, McDonough and Pike counties

The state of Illinois today announced capital investments of more than $2.9 million for road projects in Adams, McDonough and Pike Counties, part of his Illinois Jobs Now! capital construction program.

“Our investments will make it safer and more convenient for motorists traveling through western Illinois,” Illinois Governor Pat Quinn said. “The projects will also employ a number of construction workers, which will drive the local economy forward.”

The projects will be managed by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Adams County: Two box culverts carrying U.S. Route 24 over the Frazier Creek Tributary and a drainage ditch will be replaced for $684,915 by County Contractors, Inc. of Quincy, the lowest of three bidders.

McDonough County: A new bridge will be constructed to carry Wigwam Hollow Road over the east fork of the LaMoine River in Macomb for $1,370,820 by County Contractors, Inc. of Quincy, the lowest of five bidders.

Work on University Drive in Macomb from Wigwam Hollow Road to North Western Avenue will be completed for $269,643 by Gunther Construction, a division of United Contractors Midwest, Inc. of Galesburg. The work includes milling, curb and gutter replacement, sidewalk replacement, pavement markings, signs, and other items.      

Pike County: County Highway 11 from Township Road 337 to Martinsburg, a distance of just over three miles, will be resurfaced for $669,435 by Rock Solid Stabilization & Reclamation, Inc. of Ringwood, the lower of two bidders. The project uses a process called full depth reclamation, where old asphalt and base materials are pulverized, mixed with cement and water, and compacted to produce a strong, durable base. Since full-depth reclamation uses the old asphalt and base material for the new road, there’s no need to haul in aggregate or haul out old material for disposal. Truck traffic is reduced, and there is little or no waste.
