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.

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

Monitoring and Managing Crop Health and Quality is the theme of the 2014 Western Illinois University School of Agriculture's Allison Farm Field Day program.

Gruver will also deliver a presentation and will moderate a farmer panel discussion featuring successful organic grain farmers in the region. They keynote presentation will be delivered by John Kempf of Advancing Eco-Agriculture.

"He will explore relationships between crop nutrition and crop health with an emphasis on field and laboratory methods of monitoring crop nutritional status. Additional speakers will include Dr. Walter Goldstein of the Mandaamin Institute and John Pape of World Food Processing," he added.
