Perhaps...but once the FAA says it's needed you probably shouldn't wait for what is a routine maintenance task.

I, for one, am tired of the media portraying the Ray Rice case as an issue of men abusing women. I haven't heard ANY of the talking heads mention that Janay struck Ray. That is domestic violence as well. I am not excusing Ray or blaming Janay. What I am tired of is domestic violence being portrayed as a MAN problem. Nurmerous studies have proven that domestic violence is perpetrated as often…

We only have ourselves to blame for a large part of this problem. For some reason we insist on putting people who can shoot a basketball, or carry a football, or hit a baseball 450 feet on a pedestal. This alone is not deserving of respect. The only difference between them and us is how much money they make. Money can’t buy you love and it can’t buy you respect either. I respect my mailman more than…

I do believe the way the QPD runs this is to simply look to see if you're wearing a seat belt or driving erratically or some other obvious violation. From there that can then lead them to other things once they check your license or can see inside your car but it's all based on probable cause. They can't even ask to search your car anymore like they used to do.

So basically, repainting the runway...isn't considered an acceptable use of the grant money.

West Liberty Foods acquires Quantum Foods

2 months, 3 weeks ago From qctimes.com

From From qctimes.com:

West Liberty Foods LLC announced Monday that it has closed on the purchase of substantially all assets of Bolingbrook, Ill.-based Quantum Foods.

West Liberty Foods expects to begin meat processing operations at the Bolingbrook location within the next 30 days, officials said in a news release.

“This is an exciting step forward for West Liberty Foods,” said Ed Garrett, president and CEO. “This acquisition will enhance our offerings and benefit our customers, employees and owners. In addition, we will be able to bring back jobs lost when Quantum Foods shut down its business.”

According to its website, Quantum Foods was founded in 1990 as a hand-cut butchering operation servicing national restaurants and retail markets. In 2000, it began selling products to the military. As military operations expanded, so did Quantum Foods’ business. Quantum was a producer of value-added protein products such as portion-controlled, ready-to-cook and value-added fully cooked foods made from beef, poultry and pork.

According to meatpoultry.com, until Monday's announcement, a webcast auction was scheduled for today through Thursday for assets up for bid, including a 220,000-square-foot production facility, an 80,000-square-foot culinary facility and a 250,000-square-foot cold-storage distribution center.
