I agree with you Blair. Trouble is the .gov money will not be going
away. I do my best to make sure I get some since it will be going
someplace. I don't have to have that money in order to make it in
business. I just do not know why I would let it go to others when it is
available to people just like you and me. I have been a recipient in one
way or another in 3 out of 4 grants I have been a part of. Here is text
from the last one just issued today from the Illinois Digital Divide
To conclude, we hereby direct that the following proposals be adopted
and fully funded: (1) Clearwave Communications LLC d/b/a Delta
Communications; (2) Egyptian Internet Services, Inc.; (3) Heartland
Communications Internet Services, Inc.; (4) Illinois Rural Electric
Cooperative; (5) Mt. Vernon.Net; (6) Northern Illinois Technology
Triangle; (7) City of Sullivan; (8) USA Broadband-EI, LLC; (9) ROC-Net
Holdings, LLC; and the (10) City of Rock Falls.
We direct Staff to execute Grant Agreements, in substantially the form
set forth in the RFGP, on the Commission’s behalf with each such
applicant, to monitor contract compliance of each applicant with each
such Grant Award, to resolve conditional approval matters that we have
noted in this order, and to report to us as needed regarding this matter.
I just can't let free money go to others when all you have to do is ask
for it and send in some paperwork.

I personally hope that all this .gov money goes away.
I don't like competing with others who can't make it on their own and
have to have .gov money.
