Bob is a very nice guy and served well before but I think it is time for some new blood. I think this "appointment" is old school politics as usual. Must have been some give and take associated with it.
GoQuincy - Hearing Aid Volume Control: There’s an app for that - Quincy, IL News -
There are a lot of other hearing aids on the market other than the "extreme" and very expensive type mentioned in the above article. Those others are even offered by QMG such as the ones I have for each ear. Hearing aids are like any other digital, electronic device and are always being updated as technology advances. They like anything else and range in price.
WarCry - Lovelace back in court Monday - Quincy, IL News -
In 2010, Philip Diaz was held on a murder charge with a $1,000,000 bond. This one is more, obviously, but it doesn't really matter when you're talking about that big of a number. But for argument's sake, you have to consider the nature of the crime. Diaz shot and killed someone in a moment of anger and passion, a person he probably didn't know all that well. Mr. Lovelace is accused…

Gosh, qfingers. Don't you know folks won't understand sarcasm even if you point it out? Twice? Janice, thank you for the link. As an older worker with severe hearing loss, I do hope Medicare will eventually cover hearing aids. Friends have told me I should try to get Workers Comp to pay for them, but I don't feel right about that, as I've been a rock'n'roller to long,…

Convoy> It's too bad some of you union boys just don't have any integrity when it comes to jobs. Take the best paying whether you're qualified or not. Kind of like cheating, isn't it? Wait, it is cheating! I guess cheaters think everyone else is a cheater. You should also learn the difference between jealousy and contempt.

Producers are continuing to try to educate consumers about how pigs are raised

Illinois Pork Producer Todd Dail is the newly elected president of the
Illinois Pork Producers Association (IPPA). In light of more and more buyers
requiring changes in housing of pigs, Dail said, they are continuing to try
to educate consumers about how pigs are raised and why certain methods are favored over others. "We're still trying to explain to consumers that the
reason we raise pigs the way we do is, it's better on the pigs," he said.
Raising pigs outside in weather like we have had this winter, Dail said "is
not only hard on the producers, it's hard on the pigs."

Dail noted that some of that consumer education is funded through the Pork
Checkoff. He said the IPPA participates in advertising and they put on
events to promote pork to consumers. On the producer side, Dail said, "We
fund projects for research to improve our production even better that it is

Dail says there is still a market for farmers who produce a small number of
hogs on their farms, but he says it's "such a much smaller market that it
doesn't work well to feed the world." And even though some countries have
placed limits on U S pork because of the way it is produced, Dail says
exports prove the U S product is superior. He said, "I think it's just over
25 percent of the pigs that we raise in the U S get exported to other
