I, for one, am tired of the media portraying the Ray Rice case as an issue of men abusing women. I haven't heard ANY of the talking heads mention that Janay struck Ray. That is domestic violence as well. I am not excusing Ray or blaming Janay. What I am tired of is domestic violence being portrayed as a MAN problem. Nurmerous studies have proven that domestic violence is perpetrated as often…

We only have ourselves to blame for a large part of this problem. For some reason we insist on putting people who can shoot a basketball, or carry a football, or hit a baseball 450 feet on a pedestal. This alone is not deserving of respect. The only difference between them and us is how much money they make. Money can’t buy you love and it can’t buy you respect either. I respect my mailman more than…

I do believe the way the QPD runs this is to simply look to see if you're wearing a seat belt or driving erratically or some other obvious violation. From there that can then lead them to other things once they check your license or can see inside your car but it's all based on probable cause. They can't even ask to search your car anymore like they used to do.

I've dealt with the police as the bad guy. From traffic violations to more serious occasions. I treated them with respect and, unremarkably, they did the same to me. I did what I was told and made the process as simple as possible. Any encounter with the police, you get out of it what you put into it. Yeah, there are going to be a few fools out there. But guess what? The system gets rid of them…

Results Of Illinois Commodity Board Elections Announced

Roberta Dolbeare of Nebo now on Soybean Board

The Illinois Department of Agriculture today announced winners of the July 8 state commodity board elections.   

The elections filled positions on three boards:  the Illinois Corn Marketing Board, the Illinois Soybean Association Program Operating Board and the Illinois Sheep and Wool Marketing Board.

“Congratulations to those who were elected,” Agriculture Director Bob Flider said.  “It’s an honor to be chosen by your fellow producers to represent their interests when these boards decide how best to spend industry checkoff dollars.”

Checkoff dollars come from assessments levied at the first point of sale. State law sets the assessment for corn at 5/8 of 1 cent per bushel.  For soybeans, the rate is 1/2 of 1 percent of market value and for sheep and wool, it is 2 1/2 cents per pound. 

The newly-elected board members will serve three-year terms.  A list of the winners for each commodity board follows:
