I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

Minimum wage it for minimum employees. A person should be able to work for any wage they want too without government interference.

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

Share the Harvest happening now

1 year, 11 months 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".
