I think it's disgusting that we prohibit felons from municipal office by state law but then can have felons run for state office...and congress... Is that the Peter Principle in action or what?

The only prohibition I'm aware of for felons in politics here in IL is at the municipal level. From county on up, I don't believe there is any restriction. But if you decide to run, you better know that your past WILL come up, and if you don't want to talk about it, you might just want to stay home.

ADM opens new intermodal facility to provide global access

ADM opens new intermodal facility to provide global access

10 months, 1 week ago from pantagraph.com

From from pantagraph.com:

DECATUR — Scott Fredericksen set out four years ago with the goal to help Archer Daniels Midland Co. better connect its Decatur plants with the country’s major railroads to provide enhanced global access for its products.

As the ribbon was cut Thursday to open its intermodal container freight shipping and receiving facility, Fredericksen said ADM has since realized the potential the location has not only to expand its own business but for other companies to take advantage of the opportunities that have been created.

The opening ceremony was held at 3095 E. Parkway Drive amid 250 acres of land at ADM’s vast Decatur processing complex, with rail cars and the nearby Caterpillar Inc. facility as a backdrop.

“Ten years from now, I hope we look back to see this as a turning point that ushered in a new wave of growth,” said Fredericksen, ADM Transportation president. “We look forward to seeing it reach its full potential.”

The project started when ADM bought a Canadian National rail yard with tracks running into its corn processing facility. Norfolk Southern Corp. tracks ran to the soybean processing facilities in ADM’s west plant but, without the rail yard, Fredericksen said ADM had difficulty connecting between both railroads.

ADM now has direct access from the ramp to both railroads along with another of the country’s seven major railroads, CSX. It continues to have indirect access to the remaining four, Fredericksen said.
