pjohnf - Rauner vow revives governor\'s mansion question - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
"a lot of state government operates out of the city (Chicago)," That's the problem, too much government comes out of Chicago. The governor should live in the people's mansion just like dimwit lives in the people's white house. The seat of Illinois government is Springfield not Chicago or at least it's suppose to be.

I assume this law includes voter records, so maybe Chicago can crack down on voter fraud and stop the dead from voting in elections? Nah, that would asking too much.

I repeal what I said. I did not know that. I thought the umbrella of spousal privilege stop the spouse from testifying, even if they wanted to. Maybe ole' Dick Wolf should have looked into that better.

Salvation Army participates in the Feinstein Foundation's challenge grant

5 months, 4 weeks ago from The Salvation Army

Grant will help feed the hungry

For the seventeenth consecutive year, Rhode Island philanthropist Alan Shawn Feinstein is offering $1 million to non-profit, anti-hunger agencies throughout the country. He will divide $1 million among all agencies who participate.

Locally, The Salvation Army will receive a part of this $1 million representing a portion of the total dollars we raise for the food pantry from March 1st through April 30th.

The Salvation Army strives to relieve poverty and hunger in an eight county area in Illinois and Missouri 365 days a year. Food is provided to individuals and families through the Family Services’ office food pantries in Quincy and Hannibal. Emergency shelter, rent, utilities, transportation and other assistance are also part of the services provided to those in need.

During 2013, The Salvation Army provided the following: 16,658 meals to shelter residents; 5,575 food baskets through the food pantries, 1,200 Christmas food baskets for families during the holiday season; and 882 meals on Thanksgiving and Christmas Days.

Donations of money and food can be made to The Salvation Army to apply toward the Feinstein Foundation’s matching grant challenge beginning March 1st – April 30th. Donations can be made to The Salvation Army John Gardner Stevenson Family Emergency Shelter & Family Service Center at 501 Broadway in Quincy, IL, or mailed to The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 75 – Quincy, IL 62306-0075
