Come on man, You got the wierdo Debbie Wasserman, how can you even try to compare to Palin. There arn't enough paper bags at County Market to make Wasserman doable!!

What's hilarious and terrifying at the same time is that Palin was nearly a stroked-out McCain away from being the leader of this country. Think about that whenever her prompter freezes and she has to improv.

I assume she was invited to Iowa because regardless of her elect-ability, she's down to earth, likable, and us commoners can relate to her. She likes to hunt and fish, she doesn't have a perfect family, she makes mistakes, and she's not an elitist Beltway type talking down to us. She's one of us, warts and all. As a bonus, she drives liberals like you insane just by existing. You're…

Wow! He was able to get all the talking points in there. To bad an alderman doesn't have the power to fix the public safety pensions. Oh and if he could put all future police officers on 401k plans, who will fund the pensions for all the current employees? After this interview, it sounds like Heinecke may be the best choice. Sad!!

ADM official says Decatur port has long-ranging benefits

ADM official says Decatur port has long-ranging benefits

1 year, 3 months 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.
