Curious as to why the guy who hit me and ran isn't listed on here. He was charged and booked with a lot of chargers.

Better is subjective. If you're a business owner, Rauner has said he wants to cut your business taxes to make a friendlier environment. If you hire a service, Rauner wants to create a new "Service Tax" that would hit consumers of more than 2 dozen services. We already know what Quinn's done to taxes. So I guess the answer to "better" is.......neither, really.

Farms can still be included in planned Illinois Historic Farms book

4 months, 2 weeks ago jg-tc.com

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.
