"New at Naturally Yours... Someone I know through some friends has started making his own Sauerkraut and is selling it in stores. Just picked up a jar this weekend - I don't know about anyone else but I LOVE sauerkraut and I could eat this stuff straight from the jar! Love buying something locally produced too! (That way my kitchen doesn't have to be the one smelling like cabbage lol) https://www.faceb ook.com/NaturallyYoursPeo ria/photos/a.281261012035 762/1109050439256811/?typ e=3&theater..."

"joepyeweed : Yep, I'm a doofus. But you already knew that. HAHA @TheReal Quisp : I just figured you haven't shoveled much snow, lol. I grew up in WI... during my first winter in central Illinois, I was very disappointed in the shovels that were being sold at the local stores. So the next time I was visiting my family, I made it a point of going to the local hardware store and buying a couple of "real"shovels to bring back home...."

Re: City Of Pekin Faces Mobility Lawsuit
posted: 4 hrs ago by joepyeweed
"I noticed the City of Peoria was contemplating putting its sidewalk replacement program on the chopping block as part of their budget fix. The sidewalk replacement funds are the designated funds for ADA compliance for the City. I wonder if Peoria cuts out the sidewalk replacement program if that causes them to fall out of compliance with their ADA requirements. Possibly open the city up to a similar class action lawsuit that Pekin is facing...."

"Yes all infrastructure eventually needs maintenance. Infrastructure in the public right of way is the taxpayers responsibility. A lot of these sidewalk programs target old sidewalks that need replacement anyway and do not meet current standards. ADA compliance is often worked into most communities sidewalk replacement programs, that they already have. (new sidewalks, anything built post 1990 should already be accessible.)..."

"The bent handle makes it easier to lift. Are those shovel heads metal or plastic. The plastic ones are junk, IMO. The shovels for pushing are called plow shovels and have a heavier metal curved blade. https://www.north erntool.com/shop/tools/pr oduct_200617793_200617793 I have one of each. a lightweight lift shovel and a heavier plow shovel. Which one I use depends upon the weight of the snow and the depth...."

"How much access should a city be REQUIRED to provide?? @Eye intheSky : The recently departed George HW Bush signed the Americans with Disability Act back in 1990. Public Agencies that have more than 50 employees are required to have a plan that brings the public right of way into compliance with accessibility requirements. There is no deadline as to when the local public agency has to make everything accessible, but they need to make a commitment to invest a certain amount of money t..."
