Not really directed at you....probably should have made it a separate post. I'll take an explanation of the aggregate or the budget mismatch from anyone :-)

I only need to do one thing to get ready for 8 more years of Clintons. Buy a new oven - I am no longer nimble enough to get my head in the one I have now. But I agree that I don't want Christy on the ticket either.

Good to hear. Talk about a waste of space, Mann needed to go. Maybe a couple others on that list will be voted off.
qfingers - JWCC proposes levy increase - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
This is a 3.46% increase in the levy. Given they had a $600,000 decrease in the budget...and a 6.8% increase in tuition and fees...and a 4% projected decrease in hours (the increase in tuition should make up for this plus paying instructors less)....I don't quite see how the levy increases...can't seem to find the JWCC budget

Tesla Gets Missouri Break as House Lets Direct-Sales Ban Wither

Proposal would have required vehicles to be sold through dealerships only

From bloomberg.com:

Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) won’t be barred from selling its electric cars directly to Missouri customers after the state’s legislature adjourned without voting on a bill the company called a “sneak attack” on its business.

The current session concluded yesterday in Jefferson City without taking up a House bill that had passed Missouri’s Senate with no public comment or debate, Tesla said in an e-mailed statement. Language was added to the bill, dealing mainly with rules for all-terrain vehicles, to explicitly require consumers to buy vehicles only through franchise auto dealerships.

“The defeat of this anti-free market proposal is a victory for Missouri consumers and for the state’s economy,” Diarmuid O’Connell, Tesla’s vice president of business development, said in the statement.

The challenge in Missouri arose as Tesla appealed New Jersey’s March decision to ban direct auto sales by manufacturers and as it works to keep selling Model S sedans at its Massachusetts stores. While Texas and Arizona also bar direct sales of Teslas, the Palo Alto, California-based company worked out arrangements in Ohio and New York this year to keep selling in those states.

The company, now the largest auto employer in California, has one store in Missouri in University City, near St. Louis, where it also operates a service center. A second store in the state may be added in Kansas City, O’Connell said in a conference call this week.
