Fine let's make the IHSA open their books and meetings to scrutiny but state government should not be allowed to control high school sports. Government screws up everything it touches and we don't need state government screwing up high school sports too.

How about if they get food stamps and a free lunch, the food stamp amount if lowered by what the free lunches cost. As that is double dipping. WHY should the taxpayers have to pay them twice of more for the same thing?
XBgCty - Quincy School Board votes to raise lunch prices - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
If you get more then you paid in, it is an ENTITLEMENT. As it is someone else's money. If you get a deduction, you get to keep more of YOUR money. Liberals think the money people earn belongs to the government or other people, so if you get to keep some of the money you earn, liberals view that as an entitlement. There in lies the problem with this country. If you earn the money and you get…

These kids would do fine on rice, beans, PBJ and any number of CHEAP healthy foods that people have been getting by on for millennia. I know. My parents raised 6 and everyone of us was skinny, healthy, and had a full stomach every day. We were eligible for every program out there at the time, but my father would have none of it. We packed our lunches until the school system wouldn't allow it.…

There should be no cheating of course, but this is one place where tax money goes directly to making it a little easier to raise kids. I'm for that. I'm for a subsidy/entitlement/credit whatever ... for families raising children, even if they have seemingly marginal need. Money for school lunches is a rather direct way of providing that, with no way to directly divert that money. I guess…

Not everyone a fan of CKC highway designation

Sign project cost $450,000 and there was already a Missouri 110 south of St. Louis when the new Missouri 110 was created

From newspressnow.com:

But not everyone is sold on the “CKC” signs having any great impact for the region.

“It’s unnecessary,” said Marci Bennett, executive director of the St. Joseph Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We’re pushing the Highway 36, the Way of American Genius.”

That designation refers to a pre-existing program, sponsored by the Missouri Highway 36 Heritage Alliance, to foster wide recognition of the area’s character and history for tourism and economic development.

Mrs. Bennett said the expressway is actually a detriment to travelers by piggybacking the Illinois 110 moniker into Missouri. Another Missouri 110 exists in Jefferson County, but to date there has been no push to alter that highway’s route. Officials also said there are no legal or policy prohibitions against the overlapping designations.

“People are confused,” Mrs. Bennett said. “It doesn’t come to St. Joseph. It’s very confusing. It doesn’t do anything for us. We didn’t oppose it, but we didn’t endorse it.”
