I notice the Illinois change in eminent domain

I remember when the property was simply rezoned so the taxes went up. This usually enticed the homeowner to sell because he didn't want to pay commercial taxes on farmland.

I did notice that the government couldn't take over the property unless it's in a "blighted" area. I've seen nice, normal neighborhoods suddenly become "blighted" when the government wants to put a shopping mall in there.

They are more from Missouri area than Illinois. Haven't been back there since I was a teenager.

hopefully it has nothing to do with investigations. there is common practice in the usa. people move. we are not plants.

did your insatiable curiosity ever wonder why 'change of address cards' were invented? put on your pack, and get out more.

I figured out one time that, in six years of elementary school, I went to 13 different schools (and that was only in three states).

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
