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…

ADM official says Decatur port has long-ranging benefits

ADM official says Decatur port has long-ranging benefits

9 months, 1 week ago by Jim Dewey

Area businesses will be able to save money and time on both imports and exports thanks to a newly opened inland port in Decatur. 

Archer Daniels Midland Company owns the port which has access to three railroads - 5 interstate Highways and an airport that can support wide body aircraft. 

ADM Managing director of Intermodal and Container Freight Mark Schweitzer said the Midwest Inland Port will help the state of Illinois meet its goal of doubling its exports by 2014. 

"We look at it from our standpoint for agriculture exports, but there's a ton of other exports that are out there that we're just scratching the surface on." 

Schweitzer said the port in Decatur will save money for businesses and governments, "Imagine if you could take a thousand trucks off the road, and not have to go into Chicago congestion or St. Louis and take off/reduce 300 miles dray, or trucking, to maybe 30, 50 100 miles. Much more efficient for the taxpayer, much more efficient for the business itself." 

Currently - the inland port can handle up to 50 thousand shipping containers a year - but Schweitzer says that can be increased to 150 thousand in the future.
