I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

Minimum wage it for minimum employees. A person should be able to work for any wage they want too without government interference.

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

Farms can still be included in planned Illinois Historic Farms book

Farms must meet the criteria to complete the Department of Agriculture's certification process

From jg-tc.com:

The planned "Illinois Historic Farms: Honoring the State's Enduring Heritage of Family-Owned Farms" coffee-table book will feature histories of family-owned farms.

Publisher Acclaim Press reported that the book will focus on farms that have been certified by the Illinois Department of Agriculture as Centennial or Sesquicentennial farms. The book also will feature photos and stories documenting the history of agriculture in the state.

Promotional brochures began to be mailed to eligible farms late in 2013.

"Submissions from those who want their farm histories included in the book have been pouring in," said editor Charles Francis Francis. "We're even getting calls from farms that haven't been certified through the IDOA asking if they can be in the book."

However, a large number of the promotional mailings have been returned undelivered to the publisher. The publisher also reported that it is hearing from local sources that many Centennial and Sesquicentennial farm owners haven't gotten a brochure.

As a result, the publisher plans to work with local historical societies and agricultural officials to update their mailing list and to make sure that every eligible farmer knows about the book.

"We don't want any farm that wants to have their history included in the book to be left out because they didn't learn about the project," said Delayne Reeves, coordinator of the Department of Agriculture's Centennial and Sesquicentennial Farms Program.
