I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

100th Anniversary of the Show Barn CANCELLED

2 years, 1 month ago by

On Saturday, October 6th, the public is invited to a celebration for the Show Barn at Windsong Acres, near Camp Point

Due to the weather, this event has been cancelled.

On Saturday, October 6th, the public is invited to a 100th Anniversary Celebration for the Show Barn at Windsong Acres, near Camp Point Illinois.  The unique and historic barn, built by Clarence and Cora Dickhut in 1912 and renovated by Jeff & Shelly Rasche in recent years, is an Adams County landmark and is currently being considered for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.  Admission is free; donations are welcome and will help maintain the barn for the future.  Visitors may wish to bring lawn chairs.

Old-fashioned games for children will begin at 3:00 p.m.  Between 4:00-7:00 p.m., the celebration will feature music by local singers and groups, tours of both barns at Windsong Acres, photos of the barn restoration process, antique tractors, cars, and antique farm artifacts, and demonstrations by members of the Adams County Olde Tyme Association.   Food and refreshments will be available throughout the event.

All guests will have the opportunity to sign a wood plank that will be added to the barn to commemorate the 100th Anniversary Celebration, and a group photo of all who wish to pose with the barn will be taken at approximately 6:00 p.m.

Beginning at 7:00 p.m., the Silver Dollar Square Dancers from Quincy will demonstrate square dancing. Guests are invited to grab a partner and join in the fun.

Windsong Acres is located at 2121 E. 2400th Street, Camp Point, IL, which is two miles north of Camp Point and one mile east.  The barn is visible just one mile due west of Camp Point Central High School.  Detailed directions and more information is available at www.ShellyRasche.com
