The pill Hobart is wanting the city to take would be easier to swallow, if they were bringing American Family, AT&T, Motorola, or something like it to fill up this building with 300-400 Jobs. Sadly though projects like the one I just described or the Newcome Lofts will only come to this area with help from the City or County (not saying the city should give in to all of Hobarts demands) because the…

The TIF district does not include a Property Tax abatement. Those are features of the Enterprise Zone which this site is not a part of. Would like to know how we are going to force that one through against our rules.....not that I doubt they will do it. Take a look at the eligible TIF expenses and tell me where they are going to lie to us to classify 1.8 million of a 4 million project as TIF eligible.…

Could be or it could be for a burnout. which could be defined as unsafe because you lack complete traction. Or it could be for accelerating too fast but not buring the tires and without going over the speed limit. or she could have exited a private drive like the bowling alley without properly yielding.

Just remember that getting taxable property there doesn't bring in any extra $$ for the city. What it does is lower property taxes for the rest of us. Obviously more $$ back for more expensive properties (i.e. same % saved across the board).
1950Brutus - Study finds reasons Springfield Diocese Catholics have left the Church - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJou
I share many of the experiences described here by others – for me though the crossroad was when the church changed the definition of a “mortal sin”. With a stroke of the pen all of a sudden it became OK to eat meat on Friday and attending mass on Sat night fulfilled one’s obligation for Sunday. This still doesn’t make sense to me. A MORTAL SIN isn’t something that is open to a definition change – not…

2013 a banner year for voluntary conservation

8 months, 2 weeks 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.
