You can pay some now or you can pay MORE later. Kicking the can down the road is what got the jail in the shape it's in now. Kicking the can down the road Is what got the school buildings in that shape. Kicking the can down the road Is what got Illinois in the shape it is now. Someone needs to "suck it up and accept the fact that the problem needs to be fixed now, not down the road". We need…

There are plenty of white kids east of 18th, and plenty of them are little thieves, vandals and druggies. I don't see how it would matter in what part of town this happened or what color of skin the victim has.

It is clearly an opinion piece. I'm not bashing QJ for publishing this as news, I think there are people who will read this and take it as news, since it's posted on a news site (even though it's under the opinion page). Most people won't take the time to discern. I would honestly like to see a local journalist do some good solid research (investigative journalism) on this topic…

How did a response that I did not type end up in my post? Is this a new feature. I actually was defending you by making the point that it was not a news story. I hoped that Silence would have come to that conclusion after I asked question.

There are too many kids in our society in general being ignored, unsupervised, or otherwise neglected. Whether because of broken families, no father figures or other positive influences, working single parents who don't have the time (or don't make the time), being raised by grandparents who don't have the energy, etc., these kids are left to their own devices when it comes to school…

Results Of Illinois Commodity Board Elections Announced

7 months, 4 weeks ago by Illinois Dept of Agriculture

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:
