why you gotta be hatin on the grain elevators i bet you like that can of corn or that bowl of cereal or even your loaf of bread. without ADM these things would not be the price they are. ADM mound city is always clean (trust me i know we are always cleaning). Mound City would be a poor a$$ city, fire dept. crappy, streets in bad shape without ADM and CGB.

This is correct. I live in Mound City and have done so for most of my life, it is a good town to raise children in and live in. The city workers keep it clean and is constantly working on improving things. My husband works for one of the grainerys and it has been a good job to have. The complainers of dust don't realize that we live surrounded by crop land and there is ALWAYS dust around. We're close enough to the cities to shop, but, far enough away to not have all the problems of them.

Quote CAJ.."The complainers of dust don't realize that we live surrounded by crop land and there is ALWAYS dust around." That is such an ignorant statement. Dust vs GRAIN dust...NO comparison! Will soil or household "dust" EXPLODE? Just why do you think the EPA & OSHA have rules/regs that regulate graineries?(Not that they actually hold ADM/CGB accountable)
A majority of the children there, since the graineries came to town, are plagued with ear/throat/respitory problems. Let's get real and use a little common sense. If you can physically see your vehicles covered in grain dust, then YES, it is most certainly a HEALTH HAZARD.
Quote CAJ.."My husband works for one of the grainerys and it has been a good job to have." Well, isn't that special. So what if the children are in PAIN, having to go through surgeries for tubes in their ears and parents are constantly having doctor bills to be paid, hey YOU'RE gettin' a paycheck. This from the same person that for over a year has been on here begging for your support & sympathy crying O'the horrors-the sheriff made a pass at me-give me money. The hypocracy is sickening. Character of this person becoming more clear?

There are a lot of reasons people can have ear/nose/throat problems, not just from living in Mound City around the grainerys. There are also problems from living close to cropland, such as the pesticides being sprayed. When the farmers harvest their crops, the people that live close to them have dust in their homes and on their cars, should we be blaiming the farmers for e/n/t problems? Yes, use common sense.

What the sheriff did to me was not even in this blog, but, since you brought it up, I have NEVER been after money. You notice my name was not one on the list of people receiving money from the settlements. My character is not in question to my family and friends, the people who REALLY know me. My life is finally getting back to normal and I'm not asking anyone for anything. Quit the hating.

what the truckers do outside our facility is in no way our fault nor our responsibility, but i can see where the truckers should show more courtesy. As far as dust goes we have several dust collection systems to aid in reducing not only dust but the possibility of an explosion, we cant get all the dust but these systems help out a lot. but some people will see adm and cgb as an eyesore but i see jobs in a lacking area and taxmoney to the county and city

im with OMG on this! the dust has made resperatory ailments run rampant nearby it has nothing to do with "farmland "the old guy who had the radiator shop directly across from CGB had to wear a mask just to come out of his house and has since passed on thats one for instance and it REALLY trashes the finish on a vehicle if left on it so you can tell me to be quiet and quit whineing it brings jobs and helps the city with tax dollars WHEN you come over and wash my car and pickup and any motorcycle that sits out front 20 or 30 mins one other thing to note here IF you did not have trucks backed up and down main st for hrs at a time they would probably use bathroom elsewhere it is very obvious that YOUR company did not have the forsight to purchase property that was LARGE enough to facilitate its business plan and IF they did and just outgrew it GREAT move out we can stand the slight tax increase from the loss of it and for sure would like nothing better than NOT hearing the trains .car vibrator.sledge banging. and CGB dryer running constantly oh forgot your autopilot train that just runs for NO REASON do not get me started i have lots more

If ADM/CGB are such tax-booms for Md.Cty, then why is the city so damn poor? People have contracted death-sentance respritory diseases from these place, sued them, WON the law suit, LOST their battle with the disease. But hey, other people are getting paychecks and working on that early death, so it's all cool, right.
So with all this land between towns up & down the river in pulaski county, there was NO where to put these graineries besides smack in the middle of Md.Cty? Could have been jobs created to lay more train tracks, build new roads to the facilities, could have built larger facilities, etc. Small, simple, greedy self-serving minds. You people will never be more than one paycheck away from being hungry and sick. You build nor create anything in the area to KEEP YOUR CHILDREN from moving away. No JOBS = NO people = NO taxes, NO fluid capital, NO MONEY!
WAKE UP!
