I was reminiscing with a friend a little this week about the anniversary of the West Quincy Levee break which is coming up. I got to thinking about making a few stops at Merkels Hardware for batteries and a flashlight and some other things. The conversation shifted to the businesses that were open then and are not today, like Merkels.
Jordan Law of Quincy posted a warning to area residents on her Facebook page on Sunday night. In the status, she details an eerie occurrence in West Quincy in which two people played dead on the side of Highway 24, supposedly waiting for an unsuspecting good Samaritan to stop and check on them. What happened next is downright scary.
