Migraine....do you take all the deductions on your income tax returns that you "qualify" for? Im guessing yes, yet you are critical of others for doing the same thing. I don't disagree that maybe something is wrong with the guidelines but it is what it is and that's NOT the school system's fault. And Huggie....how do you know that no one checks what someone puts down? Im guessing…

People do change. If you're going to judge someone based on something they did 8 or 10 years, when they have to check the"yes" box to the question of, "Have you EVER been convicted of a felony?" Then I'm glad they're making this a law. I've been denied employment AND publicly humiliated when a potential employer looked through my application several years ago, and in front of everybody…

How stupid can a guy be. He just gets out of jail, and then pulls a dumb move like that. Looks like he's gonna be in and out of jail the rest of his life.

Migraine it's not just morally wrong its embarrassing. I know moms that lie about their income. They stand in line at the sign up table and giggle about it. Then they skip out to there brand new SUV like its no big deal. No one checks to see if what you wrote down is correct. No pay stubs, W-2s or income tax return needed. I don't have a new car and my kids may not be in dance, but at least…

The system needs "fixing", in large part, because our government is not enforcing the laws on the books now. Reform will only help if the powers that be like the new law - which isn't likely since the new laws will probably be tougher than the current ones - the pendulum is swinging back the other direction. "Let everybody in" sounds good on paper but in the real world it won't work. The…

Salvation Army Auxiliary celebrating 50th Dress an Angel project

4 months, 3 weeks ago by Denise Donley

Applications are being taken at the Family Services Center, 501 Broadway, from 1 to 4pm from now until March 20

The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary is celebrating its 50th Dress an Angel Clothing Project. 

For 50 years, the Auxiliary women have been providing a new Easter outfit and Bible for over 300 children in the Quincy area. 

Local churches, community groups, organizations and many individuals through the years have donated items and financial support for the program. 

Major Cheryl Miller, Senior Officer for the Kroc Center, said this program is needed for children in the area.

“This is an opportunity for us to share with needy children in our area who don’t have that new outfit for Easter that so many Children get. Sometimes those kids are left out and don’t get to feel as special as we want them to be. We have found this as a unique was to share God’s love with other people.”

The Salvation Army needs community support for this on-going program. The public can donate new clothing (children sizes infant to 16/18) or with a financial donation for the purchase of new clothing, Bibles and personal care items. 

Clothing and other items may be dropped off at the Kroc Center. Checks should be made out to The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary.

Applications are being taken at the Family Services Center, 501 Broadway, from 1 to 4pm from now until March 20.
