Thanks for the answer!

Too bad. He could have helped QND. I understand that funds was the problem. His wife wasn't hired as a teacher (only teachers aid) and he hoped to land a side job as principal at another school, which didn't happen, so he had to follow the money. Hey QND, Andy Douglas has brothers.

Honestly, it seems to me like QND dodged a bullet and will be far better off without "Coach" Shields. Dude has taken four coaching jobs in the last six years?!? That's absolutely ridiculous... and it certainly seems to indicate pretty clearly that his priority is NOT the young men that he's coaching (or even in displaying any sort of long-term loyalty to the many schools that he was hired…

I don't think he was brought here to work, he came when he was 16. This is crap about a permanent resident and that he came legally. There is only one person responsible for him being legal.

Eggs supply strong for Easter, Passover

1 year, 3 months ago From Illinoisagconnection.com

Although retail egg prices are historically high at $1.98 per dozen, consumers will find an adequate supply of the protein powerhouses to fill Easter baskets and for Passover meals, according to John Anderson, deputy chief economist at the American Farm Bureau Federation.

"Eggs remain a relatively low-cost source of protein at a time when other meat and dairy product prices are also up," Anderson said.

Recently, global demand for eggs has been very strong. In 2013, U.S. egg exports were up by 39 percent compared to the prior year. Much of the increase was due to an increase in exports to Mexico, which in addition to having strong consumer demand, has also had its domestic egg supply reduced by an avian influenza outbreak that began in early 2012.

"U.S. poultry farmers are working to catch up with the surge in demand. U.S. table egg production has increased in each of the past three years and is expected to increase by another 1.5 percent again this year. Demand remains strong, but exports to Mexico will begin to taper off as that country rebuilds its domestic poultry industry," Anderson concluded.

Top egg-producing states include Iowa, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Ohio, Indiana, Texas, Arkansas, California, North Carolina and Alabama.

AFBF tracks the average retail cost of 16 food items that can be used to prepare one or more meals through its Semi-Annual Marketbasket Survey.
