WOW! That is aboutall I can say right now.We typically sell around 160 boxes. This year we have more than doubled that. So far it is over 8,200 pounds of peaches. The theme for 2020 is expect more than you generally get.

I never would have guessed we would ever sell that many. There will be a lot of peaches being canned, frozen, and baked this year in Carroll County. Thank you to all who bought peaches. Especially a thank you to Fred and the Do It Best Home Center for bringing over a fork lift to get the pallets off and to my board for help- ing hand on the peaches. We are hosting a Zoom meeting for the Meet the Candidates for the Cir- cuit Judge race on Thursday, Aug.

20 at 7 p.m. The link for the meeting can be found on our Facebook page on our website at www.carrollcfb. org. Those who are running include Jerry Kane and Betsy Shaulis. It is hard to believe summer is wrapping up and schools will be starting next week.

No one knows yet how this fall is all going to play out. Melinda, our ag in the classroom coordinator is making plans to offer her programs virtually to those schools she cannot get into. Our Ag in the Classroom program has been a huge success since we formed the coalition back in 2008. It is quite hard to believe it has been that long but yet it seems like longer. Each year we do two fundraisers for the Ag in the Classroom program and what better fundraiser than food! The fall freezer meal fundrais- er is now available.

We are taking orders until Sept. 21. Cost is $165 for the 10 meals which serve 3-5 depending on your eaters. Meals included are: sweet and sour meatballs, cowboy tator casserole, bake mostaccioli, hickory smoked pulled pork, ham balls, cheesy ham and potato casserole, cheesy chick- en and stuffing, chicken fajitas, bourbon pulled chicken and break- fast burritos. You can contact our office to order, visit our website or go to our Facebook page.

Pick up for the meals will be Tuesday, Oct. 6 from p.m. Illinois Farm Bureau is part of a coalition with the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, National Federation of Independent Business Illinois and Technology and Manufactur- ing Association joined together to urge Illinois voters to vote no on the Progressive Tax Constitutional Amendment. Illinois already has 2nd highest property tax in the nation, highest sales tax rate in the Midwest, and highest wireless tax in the nation. Tax rates can easily be changed each legislative session on innumer- able number of arbitrary set tax brackets.

The amendment gives the Legisla- ture power to increase taxes on any group of taxpayers with no limits and no accountability and without any requirement to use the addition- al revenue to fund essential needs such as healthcare, education, or public safety. The proposed amendment would give the Legislature unlimited new authority to increase income tax rates on any group of taxpayers at will, including low-income and mid- dle-income families and small busi- ness owners. There would be no limit on the number of tax brackets that could be created and no limit on how high tax rates could be increased on individ- ual taxpayers. In addition, this proposed change will pave the way for a tax on retire- ment income. Here at the office we have signs for the Vote No on the Progressive Income Tax.

If you would like one, please reach out to me. Peach sales totaled more than 8,200 pounds!
