It seems it would be difficult to pay "disorderly conduct" fines when making minimum wage. Or maybe there is a government program for this?? Comparing this movement to the civil rights movement is laughable. If they want to be taken seriously they need to drop this.

Nope it was always me who posted the original message. Any person that thinks a fast food worker should make $15 per hour can not be reasoned with or partake in any kind of logical conversation. Go ahead give them $15 an hour and see what happens. I'll give you a hint, the rich franchise owners will still be rich and all of the financial genius' that fought for this big raise will be unemployed…

Exactly. I hate even suggesting that's the case when people want to rally around the "poor, helpless guy with the camera, being abused by the big, evil government flunky!", but I've seen it happen way, way to often to ignore the possibility.

Sorry for the confusion, I was typing fast. What I meant was the Cost of Living makes the $0.75 equivalent to $8.00 now (or $8.02, to be precise). What I meant about not keeping up is the federal minimum wage, which is $7.25/hour.

Application of the waterproofing membrane to be done

The Adams County Highway Department make notice that the Frazier Creek bridge will be closed the week of June 16, 2014 for the application of the waterproofing membrane, hot-mix asphalt wearing and approach resurfacing. Work should be completed by Friday June 20th

The bridge is located approximately 5 miles north of the Koch’s Lane or 3 miles south of Ursa,IL on the North Bottom Road (East 603rd Lane).

The project was suspended last year due to weather conditions being unsuitable for the application of the waterproofing membrane. The completion of the project was delayed until this time for suitable weather and to allow for the completion of planting season depending on the weather conditions.
