The guy in that video wasn't quite in the right...he should have answered the simple question "is this your current address" since it is a perfectly valid question in determining your compliance with registration laws. He didn't need to jump to the "am I being detained" until after his docs were checked which would've prevented the response he got. 625 ILCS 5/18b-103.1) (from Ch. 95…

And the property next door at 401 S 12th was just transferred to Madonna House (it's on the most recent property transfer list). So now they'll have two buildings. That's not likely to make things better unless they keep it strictly residential and for the support of the residents. I have donated (and been) to Madonna House too and I must agree that operating an open food pantry there…

Exactly. Who drives around with a camera pointed at themselves and the drivers window? No one EXCEPT someone who is intent on capturing a policeman being provoked and reacting. This was not some random event. It was staged by the driver with the intent of capturing a negative reaction by the police.

Madonna House is a great organization and needs to be supported in Quincy! But the issue is the zoning for their operation. Residential zoning is residential, period. Without a special use designation at a minimum for zoning they are not in compliance. Teresa Humes should not have even had to go to the council. Its not a matter of resolution with Madonna House, 7th Ward Aldermen Jack Holtschlag…

Export prices rose slightly in December, import prices were stable

8 months, 1 week ago Lauren Larson, MEDILL Reports

Cautious optimism was expressed about the export numbers

From Lauren Larson, MEDILL Reports:

U.S. import prices remained flat in December, while export prices rose slightly, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Tuesday.

Overall import prices for fuel declined 0.6 percent in October and 0.9 percent in November. But prices did not fall in December due to a 0.4 percent increase in the fuel import price, which includes petroleum and natural gas.

Imported petroleum prices did drop slightly in December, but that slide was neutralized by a large increase in imported natural gas prices, which is not uncommon in colder months.

Meanwhile, export prices rose 0.4 percent in December due, in part, to a 4.5 percent increase in soybean prices. The Bureau of Labor Statistics did note in its release that wheat and vegetable export prices were down slightly in December.

Joel Naroff, president and founder of Holland, Penn.-based Naroff Economic Advisors Inc., expressed cautious optimism about the export numbers. “Overall, if you’re looking at the non-food, non-fuel prices, the export prices have stabilized, ” he said.

Naroff added, “The agricultural numbers are crazy these days.”

Naroff pointed out that dramatic fluctuation in agriculture exports is common, and the 0.4 percent hike in agricultural exports follows several months of uncertainty. Agricultural exports slid 1.3 percent in October and 0.2 percent in November.

On Sunday, Gov. Pat Quinn congratulated Illinois soybean farms for producing the largest soybean crop in the nation.

December’s higher overall export prices are still down 1.0 percent decrease from December 2012, in part because agriculture prices have experienced a 6.3 percent drop since then.

Barring chaos in the agricultural sector, Naroff said he does not foresee any sweeping changes in import and export prices in coming months. “I don’t think we’ll see a lot of increases outside of petroleum-based industry,” Naroff said, “but who knows?”
