Funny, I always hear the global warming nuts claim a hot day is from global warming. Of course, a one degree change over 100 years is not noticeable by anyone. But there may not really be any warming, since the urban heat island effect was not well accounted for. And Al Gore isn't a guy doing, you know, science. He is a politician now activist that had his net worth go from $2 million to over…

Well he certainly covered some ground unlike his partner. I would certainly love to commend both the Marshals and local authorities on well conducted communications in an expedited effort to capture Kelly despite him quickly heading south eastward.

It's a cascading problem. Starting in the late 70s, early 80s, hunting became less and less. Parents stopped teaching their kids about firearms and gun safety, and the world because more suburban. Now those kids are adults and the only thing they know about guns is what they get in movies. And so they teach their kids that guns are bad, and the problem worsens. It's not any one thing causing…

Well I'm certainly glad I've long since lost/misplaced my childhood super soakers and cap gun. I'd hate to think I could potentially be punished by law for having had those 'out in the yard'. Yet again, policy makers grasping for straws. What next? My metallic painted handcuffs that have a release switch on the side? Are they going to deem my having those as impersonating…

Ameren donates air conditioners to Two Rivers

Company delivered the units to Quincy this weekend

Ameren Illinois is donating 50 window air conditioners Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials to help keep customers cool and safe this summer.
 
Two Rivers, which assists low-income families, veterans and the elderly, will distribute the units to qualifying individuals who meet Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) guidelines.
 
Overall, Ameren Illinois is donating 400 units to nine energy assistance agencies across its service territory. 
The air conditioners are rated units that meet the strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy. 
 
“We are so grateful to partner with Ameren Illinois on this important program. When the summertime heat and 
humidity goes up, there is only so much a box fan and keeping your windows open can do,” said Becky Pruden, 
director of Community Services Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials. “This wonderful donation 
provided by Ameren Illinois is a blessing. It allows us to help individuals and families to stay cool this summer.” 
 
The window units are being donated through the Ameren Cares program. Ameren Cares is an initiative that 
connects Ameren Illinois with the communities it serves through charitable giving and volunteering. 
 
“We started our Ameren Cares air conditioner giveaway last year and partnered with several energy 
assistance agencies to provide air conditioners to some of our most vulnerable customers,” said Richard J. 
Mark, president and CEO, Ameren Illinois. “This year we are continuing our efforts to provide much-needed 
relief to low-income families, veterans and the elderly who are particularly susceptible to the heat."
