I think QJHS's size has a lot to do with it being kept as well. Imagine the cost to rebuild a school of that size. Early in the discussion I recall someone bringing up the idea of building a new high school and architects said that it could easily cost 100 million.

The most interesting thing about this is that SRN&M was only charging the district 80 bucks an hour for legal. Good luck getting that rate next time you slip and fall.

The race card gets pulled out when the liberals don't have any logical arguments left in their bag. They are saying "I can't win this debate with facts so I will assault your character". It is an attempt to win by intimidation. Very sad.

ADM official says Decatur port has long-ranging benefits

11 months, 4 weeks 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.
