Are you daft? He may or may not support this? The whole point of the article and many others is that he, Obama, is signing a executive order to do this. Proposing a reclassification is one thing but signing an executive order is another. You covering for him is almost laughable if it were not for the erosion of our rights by this man and administration.

The BATF is doing this. President Obama may or may not support this, but he has not issued an executive order to do this, as far as I know.

Raise the ticket prices. If it is important to those who need it and use it, they will pay for it. Get corporations involved with advertising, etc. to help defray some expenses. The government can't continue to carry the load because WE ARE THE MONEY THE GOVERNMENT SPENDS.

Interested students must complete a short answer application

            Four area high school sophomores or juniors will win an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 13-20, 2014, in an annual contest sponsored by Adams Electric Cooperative and Adams Telephone Co-Operative.

            Interested students must complete a short answer application. After reviewing all applications, judges from each cooperative will select up to 34 applicants to represent the cooperatives at Illinois Electric and Telephone Youth Day in Springfield on April 2, 2014. Participants will visit the State Capitol, the old capitol building and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum.

            At the conclusion of Youth Day, judges from the Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives will interview the applicants. Two winners will be selected for each cooperative for an 8-day all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. in June. One alternate will be named for each cooperative incase one of the winners is unable to attend.

            The four winners of Youth Day will spend one week in Washington, D.C., visiting places of historical interest, as well as members of Congress, and getting a firsthand view of our government in action. Students will also learn more about the important role cooperatives play in our nation.

            This year marks the 55th year of the Youth to Washington program. Adams Electric Cooperative has been sending students to Washington, D.C. since 1959. Adams Telephone joined the program in 2004. Today, approximately 2,000 students from 42 cooperatives across the United States meet at our nation’s capital each summer. The 2014 Youth to Washington winners will be announced following Youth Day in Springfield.

            For more information about the Youth to Washington program, contact Laura Dotson at Adams Electric Cooperative at (800) 232-4797 or Bridgette Northern at Adams Telephone

Co-Operative at (877) 696-4611.
