I'm sorry, I just coventry haven't seen it, and I'm talking about the private sector. Heck fast food joints have given raises, min wage has increased, all my friend at blessing hospital and the medical group have given raises. I'm sorry, I just don't know what circle of people you're running with. And they've all without exception received more than 1%. The wage correction…
pjohnf - Quinn: New controls after Medicaid paid for dead - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Why is it with government bureaucrats that they always say they're going to close the barn door after the horse has left the barn? Millions in fraudulent payouts and now they find out. Only goes to prove once again that government is not the solution but government is truly the problem.
pjohnf - Rauner details some immigration views - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Anti-illegal immigration is not anti-legal immigration and Quinn knows it. It's disappointing that Rauner would side with the illegal immigration/amnesty crowd. It's insane and wrong to reward illegal behavior, illegal immigration, with any pathway to citizenship. Big business wants cheap labor and democrats want a new dependent class of voters and that's why both support immigration…

I have a question for you yesqcy. How many payroll checks have you written?

Tell that to people (Private Sector, of course) who have taken pay CUTS, shortened hours or loss of benefits just to remain employed. Somehow, I feel your comments come more from attitude and opinion than knowledge and experience.

2013 a banner year for voluntary conservation

3 months, 1 week ago By Spencer Miller, USDA, NRCS Public Affairs

The 2013 numbers are in and they show the importance of voluntary, locally based conservation. Data just released by the Natural Resources Conservation Service shows how the USDA agency in partnership farmers and ranchers across the country conserved and protected natural resources on tens of millions of acres of America’s privately-owned lands last year.

Together, NRCS and conservation-minded farmers, ranchers and other partners:

  • Developed conservation plans for more than 43.8 million acres.    
  • Enrolled more than 279,000 acres into conservation easements, setting aside valuable wetlands, grasslands and farmlands. These landscapes help create wildlife habitat, clean air and water and lead to other environmental benefits.
  • Worked with producers in the Ogallala Aquifer region, the nation’s breadbasket, to implement conservation practices that use water wisely on more than 70,000 acres.
  • Improved habitat for at-risk wildlife. Two initiatives geared toward the lesser prairie chicken and sage grouse put conservation practices on more than 220,000 acres and 570,000 acres, respectively.
  • Assisted producers in the Mississippi River basin improve water quality, restore wetlands and improve wildlife habitat on more than 255,000 acres.
  • Helped landowners in 9 states improve sustainability and profitability of longleaf pine forests, an iconic forest of the Southeast, on more than 50,000 acres.
