I agree that name calling is not conducive to reasoned discussion. Try this information and let us know of counter arguments. http://patriotpost.us/opinion/19138 It confirms what I've know for decades...modeling (of most all types) is horrible and, in particular, doing future planning on chaotic (e.g. weather) modeling systems…

How does calling someone's beliefs "moronic" advance the conversation at all? Just because there is disagreement on a topic does not mean those who disagree with you is a moron. What is unfortunate is that type of name-calling often replaces robust discussion...just because you think you're right, doesn't necessarily make it so.

City might not want to allow the development at 36th and Harrison. I do believe this would be on the same sewer lines that end up at 26th & Harrison and flooded multiple homes a few years ago.

State Rep. Farnham resigns legislative seat after federal raid

1 year, 4 months ago from dailyherald.com

The Elgin Democrat cites "serious health issues" in resignation statement

From from dailyherald.com:

State Rep. Keith Farnham resigned his legislative seat Wednesday, just days after federal officials searched the Elgin Democrat's home and office.

A one-sentence letter released to Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan gave no reason for the resignation, but Farnham cited "serious health issues" in a statement released shortly after.

Farnham was not present in Springfield for lawmakers' session Wednesday.

"This is to notify you that, effective immediately, I hereby resign my position as representative in the General Assembly for the 43rd Representative District of the state of Illinois," the letter said.

Farnham has said nothing about the search by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations officials last week, and federal authorities haven't said what they were looking for.

In his statement, Farnham said, "I have been battling serious health issues for a number of years and the coming months will require my full attention."

Farnham's Elgin office was dark Tuesday, and a woman answering an intercom at his home apartment said he was unavailable. He has not returned numerous calls for comment.

In the statement, Farnham said he also will withdraw as his party's nominee for re-election to the Illinois House, a position he won Tuesday as he had no opponent in the primary election. No Republican has filed to run for the seat, but local party leaders could appoint a candidate in the coming months.
