370-400 bushels per acre? National average is supposed to be a record at 172, but are they making 370 even in the irrigated bottom ground? We had lotsa rain and a lot of double ears filled out ... but the average is only 10 bushels higher. Of course most of those extra bushels are probably sold at $3, and they are looking at under $3 next year. Most farmers already made a lot of purchases with…

Ellington is concrete, doesn't seem "temporary". If the roof is an issue, put some pretty metal gabled roofs over the thing. HVAC is the issue? ... how can it be more for new units than a new building with new HVAC? They could even add a new building behind the old(er) building. The best sales point to me is in attracting industry to the area, which wants to attract individuals, who want good…

Sinquefield, Busch top political donors in the fourth quarter

8 months, 3 weeks ago St. Louis Business Journal

In all, St. Louis individual donors contributed more than $1,022,500

From St. Louis Business Journal:

Area donors made significant contributions to Missouri candidates in the final quarter of 2013. In all, area individual donors contributed more than $1,022,500 to candidates, while area corporate donors gave more than $1.6 million, out of more than $10 million in contributions statewide.

The fourth quarter was the last reporting period before the beginning of legislative session. Lawmakers are back in Jefferson City, where they have more easy access to contributions from lobbyists and political action committees.

The list of nearly a dozen top area donors was compiled using bulk data provided by the Missouri Ethics Commission for donors who report contributions from addresses in the St. Louis-region. That means donors like Rex Sinquefield, who lists his home address in Westphalia, Mo., would not be included here, despite the fact that he has said he lives in St. Louis.

Sinquefield (a wealthy investor and political financier), for what it’s worth, contributed nearly $1.3 million in the final quarter of 2013, including $750,000 to TeachGreat.org , and $495,000 to his pro-tax cut group GrowMissouri.

The top St. Louis contributors during the fourth quarter were:

1. August Busch III

August Busch III led the pack in the St. Louis region during the final quarter of 2013, contributing a total of $50,000 to political candidates. Busch contributed $15,000 to the Missouri Republican Party, $15,000 to the House Republican Campaign Committee $10,000 to Majority Floor Leader John Diehl, R-St. Louis, and $5,000 each to Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder and St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann.

2. James McDonnell III

James McDonnell III contributed $25,000 to political candidates in the last quarter, including $15,000 to the Missouri Republican Party, $10,000 to House Speaker Tim Jones, and $5,000 to Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder. The contributions from McDonnell came after the legislature passed a massive incentive package for The Boeing Company, whose presence in Missouri was started by the McDonnell family.

3. Roy Pfautch

Roy Pfautch contributed $21,500 to candidates in 2013’s final quarter, including $20,000 to Republican State Auditor Tom Schweich’s reelection campaign and $1,000 to state Rep. Caleb Jones, R-California.

4. Jessie Bodine

Jessie Bodine, founder of Bodine Aluminum, contributed $20,000 to State Auditor Tom Schweich’s reelection campaign last quarter. Earlier this month, Schweich learned that his Democratic rival had dropped out of the race due to inability to raise sufficient funds.

5. Dave and Suzie Spence

Former gubernatorial candidate and area businessman Dave Spence contributed $15,250 to candidates last quarter, including $5,000 each to Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder and House Utilities Committee Chairwoman Jeannie Riddle (who is running for state Senate). Spence also contributed $1,000 to the Missouri College Republicans.
