Can't do a sunset provision? It's a referendum...unless Illinois has specific language requirements for sales tax (which I can't seem to find) you can put anything you want on a referendum. After the referendum passes they create an ordinance...and the idea that somebody would sue that you can't put a sunset provision in an ordinance sounds pretty ludicrous to me. A self-restricting…

There's also 7.6 million Illinois residents that aren't being represented by little Dickie Durbin. Yes the majority rules in our republic but that doesn't mean the minority shouldn't be represented and their rights protected. Durbin is a typical liberal democrat who believes that the socialist agenda comes above all things. The Herald Rag endorsed Durbin because he brings home…

A word of advice. Always get plenty of sleep before coming into contact with Kevin Taute. He may look at your eyes and be so bold, not only as to accuse you of having consumed marijuana, but then additionally suggest you're growing it in a planter pot to distribute as well. What a tool! If only we could all aspire to such douchebaggery.

This is an honest question. Regarding lack of poor judgement during 'protocol'. Of course, what the hell does he care. The gentleman made over 90K in 2010, so likely, reasonably more now. "To serve and collect". Where are good officers these days?

You sound like you are someone who really knows there way around business entities and should be listened to. I mean I know this must be a parody past because surely you know that an LLC is not a corporation. And in almost all cases the members of an LLC are liable to the extent of their money invested in the LLC. B y the way, LLC stands for Limited Liability Company, not corporation. I am sure…

Share the Harvest happening now

2 years ago by

The processed venison, usually ground into burger, is distributed to local food pantries and is made available to families

The Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri, along with the Conservation Federation and local food pantries, encourage area hunters to donate a deer for the purpose of helping families in the local community.

Share the Harvest is a program administered by the Conservation Federation of Missouri.  Hunters who want to participate simply take their deer to a participating meat processor.  There is typically no processing fee charged to the hunter when a whole deer is donated.  The processor is reimbursed $60 by the Conservation Federation, for each whole deer processed.

The processed venison, usually ground into burger, is distributed to local food pantries and is made available to families in the community who are struggling to make ends meet.

Financially speaking, many families are currently experiencing the "perfect storm".   The rising costs of groceries, fuel and utilities, often coupled with the loss of a job, cause many local families to have to choose between basic necessities.  Donating a deer to share the Harvest is one way to help mitigate these difficult choices.

In 2011, the 11 days that comprised the Firearms "Main Portion" season yielded 191,000 of the 292,000 deer harvested throughout all deer hunting seasons.   Over 6,000 deer were donated to Share the Harvest in 2011.

Many processors only accept deer donations for a few weeks in November, which include the 11 days of the Firearms "Main Portion" season.

For more information about Share the Harvest call The Food Bank at (800) 764-3663 or visit www.mdc.mo.gov and click on "Share the Harvest".
