Hey again, genius. I didn't say the jail was fine, I asked what was wrong with it. Try being less of a Durbin once in awhile.

Hmm. Where do I record fair market value of a homemade cherry pie exchanged for cleaning out my neighbor's gutters? Duh.

Sure, genius. That piece of paper on wall of the barber shop means it's clean and bug-free. Nope. All it means is they paid their money to the man.

That says nothing about bartering between individuals. It only refers to businesses and to barter exchanges. Better slow your roll.

I don't see anything in that report that says it's unsafe for the deputies Really? At around 4:45 p.m., one of the prisoners attacked a guard with a weapon. ... The guard that was struck was later treated and released from Blessing Hospital. And if you don't think the jail needs to be replaced, I'd strongly recommend you contact Sheriff Fischer's office and…

Cheerful Home jumps for United Way

2 weeks, 4 days ago by 0

Children at Cheerful Home Child Care & Early Learning Center will be jumping in the 3rd Annual Jump for United Way Day on Friday, July 18th from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. to give back to their community and promote healthy living.

“The Jump for United Way Day is a fun and healthy way to teach children important physical skills and community involvement,” states Jeris Grim, Cheerful Home Executive Director. Children and parents received information earlier this month explaining the event and prizes for participants including donations from Fun City and Knights Action Park. “If each child could raise $25, we would exceed our $4,000 goal,” Grim explained. If you would like to help the children raise money for United Way, please mail checks to: Cheerful Home, 315 S 5th Street, Quincy, IL 62301. For more information, please contact Jeris Grim at 217-228-0654. 

Since 1886, Cheerful Home has been an important part of the Quincy community, providing needed childcare and pre-school education for up to 176 children ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Cheerful Home holds the belief that each child is entitled to a stimulating and nurturing environment in which to grow and learn and is committed to providing educational curriculum emphasizing skills appropriate to the developmental level of the child.

 

“Cheerful Home and ultimately the children’s success is dependent upon funding from United Way. As a partner organization, we believe it is important to also give back to United Way. It teaches children at an early age the importance of being an engaged community member,” explained Grim. Cheerful Home is one of 21 United Way community partners that receives funding for education, income and health programs. United Way funds assist Cheerful Home in their Outreach Family Support Program and Sliding Fee Scale Program.
