Didn't Hannibal just put in a new school or two? I can't find the story on planned vs. spent, but I don't hear a lot of hollering about cost overruns, etc. I just remember the story with the open house to show off their new, state-of-art facility.

I still think that there is no way they can guarantee that this project is only going to be $89M. Take a look to the North to another huge government sponsored building at Ft. Madison Prison. Years late and 10's of millions in cost over run. There is simply no way that they can promise this won't cost a penny more than $89M and what happens when it does (and it will by a minimum of 15%)?…

The bonds that they're currently talking about retiring were the previous set of bonds to pay for Life Safety repairs. I'm not sure why you don't know this stuff. I know it from reading the QJ articles over the last year or so, so it's not like I have secret insider-info, it sounds like you are - for whatever reason - just willfully ignoring the information that's out there.…

I honestly can't explain it. I'm not on the park board, so you could try asking them. But I'm going to bet the answer sounds something like this: "We can spend a ton of money to repair current problems without gaining any actual improvement to the facility, just patching up the problem spots. Or we can spend a roughly equivalent amount and get a newer facility which will have regular…

I know of what you speak-----the same thing happened to my son in Junior High 35 years ago. Apparently performance wasn't a measurement then, either.

2013 a banner year for voluntary conservation

9 months 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.
