I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

Minimum wage it for minimum employees. A person should be able to work for any wage they want too without government interference.

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

Network Knowledge sells farm land from Macomb transmitting site

2 years, 3 months ago by Bob Gough

Two years ago, the corporation sold its WQEC transmitting tower in Fowler

Network Knowledge, parent company of WSEC/WQEC, is selling more land as part of its ongoing strategy to restructure debt, in part by selling assets deemed non-essential to providing their programming.

“Our primary goal is to deliver quality programming,” said Dr. Jerold Gruebel, president & CEO of Network Knowledge. “We want to broadcast as much of the treasure of national programming as possible, and we want to be a valued community resource for locally-produced programs, primarily in collaboration with community groups and organizations.”

To do this, Network Knowledge has begun a strategy of reducing debt through the sale of assets and diversifying its fund raising by increasing viewer support, attracting more business partners for sponsorship of its programming and creating additional infrastructure revenues, such as increased tower leases.

Two years ago, Network Knowledge sold its WQEC transmitting tower in Fowler, Illinois. WQEC is the Network Knowledge community-licensed public television station for Quincy. With the leaseback of tower space for WQEC (at no cost), the new tower owner is able to generate revenues from tower leases while Network Knowledge was able to reduce debt equal to the sale of the tower.

Network Knowledge is presently completing the sale of farm land it owns for its WMEC/ PBS Macomb transmitting site in Colchester (completion of the sale should take 4 to 6 weeks), and may consider selling its farm land for the WSEC transmitting site in Franklin. Sale of the Colchester farm land will eliminate the line-of-credit debt Network Knowledge has with Bank of America, its primary lender, and give it funds to pay debt service on its long-term loan for approximately half of this fiscal year which began on July 1.

“This sale reduces our overall debt and gives Network Knowledge much needed relief in paying debt service, which in turn helps our operating cash flow. We retain ownership of the transmitting tower and all equipment on it.”
