I like Kelly's food and atmosphere, but I don't get the fascination everyone has with melted cheese.

Glad to hear that they are back open for business, and that everybody affected is going to be OK. (And yes, after reading this I'll admit I could go for several bowls of their cheese soup, heh heh heh.) If there is any tiny bit of a "silver lining" that can possibly come out of this unfortunate situation, I hope it's that QFD (and the members of the local news media) will take an opportunity…

And again you post, proving your ignorance. Being "raised around" guns proves nothing, and adds to the stupidity of your statements. You addressed none of what I said. It is not a "high-powered" rifle. It is in the .22 caliber category (.223). Most rifles are larger and more high powered. They are used for small game hunting and target, because of that fact, that are a smaller caliber. Cheaper ammo…

Who are you to decide what is necessary? That's a bogus argument as these are not the same weapons and this is about ammo. 30-06 or 223 tell me which is more lethal?

Missouri Farm Bureau opposes Eminent Domain for Grain Belt Express

10 months, 2 weeks ago From Illinoisagconnection.com

Missouri Farm Bureau's board of directors has voted to intervene in the Grain Belt Clean Line case which is presently before the Public Service Commission (PSC). Farm Bureau will oppose granting eminent domain to the company for the proposed electrical transmission line which it plans to build across northern Missouri. From western Missouri going east, the line would cross Buchanan, Clinton, Caldwell, Carroll, Chariton, Randolph, Monroe and Ralls counties.

The Grain Belt Express (GBE) "Clean Line" is a High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission line, approximately 750 miles long stretching from western Kansas eastward across Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. Electrical current carried through the lines will come from new wind turbine farms in Kansas.

"Missouri Farm Bureau has long been a defender of property rights whether it involved cases of eminent domain or regulatory abuse," said Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst. "Our board of directors consulted with county Farm Bureau leaders and has voted to oppose eminent domain authority for the GBE project. The benefits claimed by the developers absolutely do not justify the granting of eminent domain to the newly-formed company selling electricity to out-of-state customers."

Clean Line Energy is seeking public utility status from Missouri's PSC so the company can use eminent domain proceedings to acquire easements for the 150-foot-tall transmission towers.
