Health district offering free food for kids this summer.

by Tom Cain and Company

I read this article from the News -Gazette today talking about helping all kids not be hungry this summer. As economic times have change so do we have to find new ways to help those most effected. My hat is off to the Health district for looking at new way to help children in our area.

Champaign County Real Estate

by Tom Cain and Company

When you travel outside of Illinois you get to see the effects of this economy. It has been twelve months since I have been to Florida. When we got here I found that many business's didn't make it. The gas station across the street which seem to always be busy is now shut down. Restaurants, and many commercial spaces are now empty and looking for new tenants. It has just made me again understand how lucky we are to live in the Midwest. The caliber of impact the economy has on the US is found less in Champaign County. Our real estate inventory is down to 3.42 months. This means that our market is picking back up at a good pace. We are blessed to live in Champaign County home of the University of Illinois.

Carbon Monoxide Detector Recall

by Tom Cain and Company

NITEHAWK CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS FROM NOVEMBER 8,1998 THROUGH MARCH 9, 1999 HAVE BEEN RECALLED.  YOU CAN FIND THE DATE ON THE BACK.  THE PROBLEM IS THAT THEY ALRAM YOU TOO LATE OR NOT AT ALL.  REMEMBER CARBON MONOXIDE IS THE SAME WEIGHT AS AIR WITH THE EXCEPTION WHEN THE AIR TEMPERATUR IS 60.0F OR LESS  NOW CARBON MONOXIDE SETTLES EIGHTEEN INCHES ABOVE THE GROUND.  I  RECOMMEND THE PLUG IN TYPE WITH A DIGITAL READ OUT.
