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

They..... I'm fully aware of some of there wages as well! But there not in the media making comments about things they don't know anything about! Irving should have been sold along time ago!

Tyson Foods Wins Bidding War for Hillshire Brands

6 months, 1 week ago From Illinoisagconnection.com

It appears that Tyson Foods Inc. has won the bidding battle to buy Hillshire Brands Co., besting an offer from Pilgrim's Pride Corp. Terms were not available, according to reports. 

Pilgrim's Pride had offered $55 per share, or roughly $6.82 billion, for Chicago-based Hillshire last week, upping its offer after Tyson entered the bidding with an offer of $50 per share, or roughly $6.2 billion, for Hillshire on May 29.

Hillshire, the maker of Jimmy Dean sausage and Ball Park hot dogs, agreed last week to share information with Pilgrim's Pride and Tyson and hold separate discussions with both suitors regarding their unsolicited proposals.

Hillshire has been seen as a potential acquisition candidate for months as companies look for ways to boost their sales of branded foods, which often carry higher profit margins than commodity-focused items. Tyson and Pilgrim's Pride each handle meat processing and have some branded operations. Both have said they were attracted to Hillshire in part because of its presence in areas such as brand-name breakfast foods.

Tyson has already done smaller acquisitions over the past several months, including its January purchase of the assets of Michigan-based Bosco’s Pizza Co., a maker of stuffed breadsticks and frozen pizzas.

Pilgrim's Pride is 75-percent owned by Brazil’s JBS S.A., the world's largest meat company. An acquisition of Hillshire would allow it to expand further into retail products and to bring the U.S.-focused Hillshire products into international market
