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?

Make reservations now for last Walking Tour of 2014

10 months, 2 weeks ago from Historical Society of Quincy and Adams Co

The tour will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, September 6 at the Historical Society’s Visitors Center

The Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County will host the final walking tour of the season on Saturday, September 6.  The tour will begin at 10 a.m. at the Historical Society’s Visitors Center, 425 South 12th Street.  The tours are $6 for members of the HSQAC and $10 for non members.  Membership applications will be available for those wishing to join that day. 

Those going on the tours are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes and have the ability to climb stairs and walk at least one mile.  Many times home owners will invite tour goers to come inside and see their home. Children are welcome and are charged the same as adults.  Following the tour, participants will return to the John Wood Mansion and will be welcome to tour it and/or shop in the Visitor’s Center gift shop.

The September 6th tour will feature the Schott Family and their homes along with other homes in the neighborhood.  J.B. Schott Manufacturing Company began in 1848 in the Schleich Tannery at 6th and State and became known throughout the country for their handmade and hand tooled saddles made in hundreds of styles.  The Civil war had Schott’s tannery operating at full capacity.  The Schott Mansion located at 1421 State is surrounded by the homes built by their adult children.  Most of these homes are located behind the mansion on Kentucky Street. 

The tours will be led by Vicki Ebbing who was the former Executive Director of the Gardner Museum of Architecture and Design.  Ebbing stated “The First Saturday Tours were very popular during my tenure at the Gardner.  Since becoming a member of the board of directors of the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County I volunteered to resurrect the tours on a smaller scale.  These tours are a great way to learn some in depth information about the City that we all think we know.” 

Reservations are requested for the tour and can be made by calling 222-1835 or email at info@hsqac.org.  Free parking is available in the Historical Society’s lot behind the John Wood Mansion or off the alley just north of the Osage Orangerie.  The tours take place rain or shine unless storming. For additional information please call the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County at 222-1835.
