The presentation is "Old Stagecoach Road between Springfield and Peoria" by GregLaun. Public is welcome. Demos Odds Favorite An acquaintance visitingthe United Kingdom e-mailed the paper June 1. She said the betting shops permit adult residents to buy or sell the odds of an event happening. As of June 1', the betting shops across the pond have the odds of the Republicans gaining control of the House of Representatives after the 2010 mid term election at only 43%. The odds of the Democrats holding onto control of the Senate after the 2010 elections is still a very high 73.8%. Listening to the political com.- mentators, one would have thought the odds were much worse for the Demo- crats than this. Doesn't look like that much political damage has been done to the present administration as the media suggests. While it is still five months off; much of the worst has been seen economically. Right now, it looks like there will be little changed after these elections. -- ..... AUTOMATIC POWER PROTECtiON Protect the things that matter most.
