There has been a lot of info about the school board election in the media. But, Are the same people that were on the Quincy Park Board running? Or, maybe that election isn't held at the same time the School Board Election? Sorry to see Jeff M. go, although I didn't agree with him all the time.

What property of the city does Comsast use? The biggest chunk of property leased to them is probably Amerens power poles, unless they have buildings residing on city property that I am not aware of. the fee paid to the phone company is paid by whoever is leasing the line. If Adams provides DSL to a customer in quincy and they do not have any plant in the area but AT&T does Adams can rent the line…

I think Ameren pays also. Maybe we should put up toll booth to enter city so we can tax the people from out of town for using our services. I guess we get them at the cash register but we pay that also

Monsanto presented a check for $2,500 to the Farm Bureau Foundation

The Adams County Farm Bureau celebrated its 100th anniversary with a dinner at the Oakley Lindsay Center Thursday night. 

Guest speaker Max Armstrong spoke with farmers and agribusiness representatives about the need to tell their story to consumers and to policy makers alike. 

During the celebration, Monsanto presented a check for 25 hundred dollars to the Farm Bureau Foundation. 

The money comes from Monsanto's America's Farmers Grow Communities fund in which local farmers enter a drawing to win the honor of naming the organization they would like to help. 

Tammie Smith was the winner in Adams County and she says she chose the Farm Bureau Foundation which funds Ag in the Classroom so that others youngsters could have the same experience as her 2 year old grandson when he visits the farm. 

"It's hearing him and his excitement, as little as he is, realizing there's not a lot of children that have an opportunity to really know what's goes on, on a farm," Smith said. 

Smith noted that when people, especially children in big cities talk about where their food comes from, "they think their food, their milk just come from a grocery store." 

In addition to Ag in the Classroom - the Farm Bureau Foundation funds scholarships.
