A while back someone posted that they had a lot of plastic take out containers with lids and they were wondering if anyone had a use for them as it seemed a waste to pitch them. A person posted that her friend could use them as she worked to feed individuals in a shelter in the Milwaukee area I believe. I have been giving them to her but her friend has now moved. Does anyone have any thoughts on who/where might be able to use these.

With all but 13 precincts reporting votes, the Oak Park incumbent was losing to Johnson, a union organizer and first-time candidate. The winning Democrat is expected to win this fall's general election, as no Republican sought that party's nomination in the predominantly Democrat district. U.S. Congressman Danny Davis easily beat high school teacher Anthony Clark; Davis will face Republican Craig Cameron this fall.

Hello, So I am wondering if anyone else here gets charged for water fixtures on their water bill. Particularly speaking of non-metered bills. I own a small ranch style home and my bill has always been double of my friends or family. My last bill was $1000+ where as others are usually around $500.
I was told by Dept of Water that only properties larger than single family homes get charged for water fixtures, and my property is classified as a single family home, but I still get charged for the water fixtures.
Anyone else with a relatively small home have the same experience?
