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…

State Rep. Farnham resigns legislative seat after federal raid

7 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.
