TOP TEN Proposed Building Plans Where The Newcomb Hotel Once Stood…

10) The start of a massive water slide that dumps into the river.

A nice Luxor Hotel would look sweet downtown.

9) A mini Vegas with a mini Bellagio fountain, mini Luxor pyramid, and mini (or many) street girls to be arrested.

8) A brick oven pizza place.

7) A big sign that says “Welcome to Illinois. Yes, Missouri IS the better state.”

6) The Weibring-Guthrie Driving Range. Like Cosmo Kramer, we’re hitting balls into the water.

5) Chickenman Stadium. There’s no place like home for the Gems, now.

4) Since it’s downtown, a classier version of The Green Parrot, which means no change allowed.

3) The Hooch Clinic: Helping those with dependency of candy and sugar.

2) A life-size statue of broadcasting legend, Les Sachs, staring down the one of John Wood in Washington Park.

1) It’s on a corner in Quincy, so a church of some type in front and a bar in the back. Or vice versa.
