Exactly how much economic war do you need before responding? Just because it's done over the internet makes it no less effective. I suppose if they attack our power grid and knock out our power for a few months you're OK with that too? How do you demarcate the two? N Korea does not play well with others and if we don't respond they will continue to act with impunity. They don't…

Hopefully Rogan and Franco can somehow get the rights for the movie from Sony and distribute it on their own. I would personally pay for a DVD of this movie, if nothing else just to show my support for freedom from dictators, oppressive regimes and terrorists.

Don't know, but, I'd take a guess: Over the next 9 months and the last 3, QUincy has lost nearly 800 jobs - some of those 'mates' must move on with the one who lost the job. Drive around town - how many, so many, homes up for sale - might be an indicator of the economic situation in Qcy and IL. - time to move on outta here maybe? I doubt that anyone losing a job at Qcy Compressor…

I do not think this is the subject for drawing a line in the sand. Fifty years ago I read about how World War 1 started – assassination of an Archduke that set a series of events in motion that resulted in a World War – can you imagine that in 50 years people could read that World War 3 started over a movie starring Seth Rogan. Not an issue to ask people to die for. If we do retaliate we should do…

Salvation Army Auxiliary celebrating 50th Dress an Angel project

9 months, 2 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.
