370-400 bushels per acre? National average is supposed to be a record at 172, but are they making 370 even in the irrigated bottom ground? We had lotsa rain and a lot of double ears filled out ... but the average is only 10 bushels higher. Of course most of those extra bushels are probably sold at $3, and they are looking at under $3 next year. Most farmers already made a lot of purchases with…

Ellington is concrete, doesn't seem "temporary". If the roof is an issue, put some pretty metal gabled roofs over the thing. HVAC is the issue? ... how can it be more for new units than a new building with new HVAC? They could even add a new building behind the old(er) building. The best sales point to me is in attracting industry to the area, which wants to attract individuals, who want good…

Three men are the only incumbents whose seats are up next April

Three Quincy School Board members whose seats are up in April announced during Tuesday night's Board meeting they won't run again.

Board President Bill Daniels, Vice President Steve Krause and Tom Dickerson each took turns making a statement at the start of the meeting.

Daniels will wrap up this third consecutive four-year term.

"I never had a single day of regret serving on the Board. I'm not leaving for any negative reasons," Daniels said. "It's time for me to focus on my businesses, growing my business and trying to create jobs."

He said every organization he's been involved in, he's hopefully left something in it better off than before. He believes that during his tenure, the District has operated with more clarity and uniformity.

Daniels also urges others who care about education to "go get yourself a petition" and run for one of the three open seats.

Dickerson and Krause echoed his statements, each saying their time on the Board was important to them.

Krause, who is on his first term, said he believed it was "everybody's responsibility to do public service."

Dickerson said the District's situations over the years have caused him "many sleepless nights" but he has "no regrets." He was appointed to fill a vacant Board seat and in April will have been on the Board 10 years.

So far, seven people have taken out petitions for the three open seats. Click here for that story.

School Board petitions must be turned in between December 17 and December 24
