Millikin area student Housing Year 2014-2015

My company, Quality Home Locator, has been renting houses to Millikin students for over 7 years. Back in 2011, I wrote a guide to off-campus housing based on my experiences with helping other students as well as attending college myself. We are soon approaching the break between Fall 2013 and Spring 2014, which is normally when students start to look at housing for the next school year. Thanksgiving break will be upon us before we know it and having a house picked out before you leave during break greatly increases the chances of finding something that fits your needs or wants. It is very common that during this short period of time, Quality Home Locator will have a large portion of it’s properties leased out. Please contact us as soon as possible if you think you are interested in leasing a property next year.

If you have any questions you can contact my office at 217.864.6485. You can contact me directly via this website as well. Someone always monitors the company website and Facebook page if those forms of communication are easier for you.

Wilhoit Accounting opens new tax office in Mt Zion, IL

Mike Wilhoit is a local accountant serving the Decatur, Forsyth, and Mt Zion area. He has moved his office to a new location on the south side of 121 in Mt Zion. A family man of over 18 years, Michael has been a valuable asset to the community. I have known him for several years now on both a personal and business level. I can honestly say it has been a pleasure to be his friend and the level of service I get from him regarding my accounting is stellar. I’m sure someone you know has had Michael handle their taxes so don’t take my word for it, ask them. Ever since Michael began working with Bradshaw Consulting, Inc. and Quality Home Locator I have been able to focus more on my business and not my accounting. He even saved me some money on my tax return last year!

Wilhoit Accounting and Tax Service‘s new location is 322 North State Highway 121. His phone number has also been updated to 1.217.864.1850 with a fax number of 217.864.1849. Don’t let the North 121 fool you, it is really far south on 121 near the Firehouse. If you are traveling south on 121 the road will start to curve to the left after Filippo’s Pizza. The building is across the street from Mt Zion Auto Service which is a new auto service shop.

My Tilton Apricot Tree

My Tilton Apricot Tree
When I ordered my Owari Satsuma Mandarin tree and my Asian pear tree, I had also ordered an Apricot tree. Sadly that tree did not make it through the winter and I had to order a replacement. As you can tell by the photo, which was taken in May of 2013, the tree was doing very well. At the time of this photo the tree had been in the ground about a month. It still is doing very well and getting ready to go to sleep. Both of my other two trees also did very well. However, I think my blueberry plants died again this year! It is possible one or two of them serviced, but I’m not holding my breath. I think next year in early spring I am going to buy mature blueberry bushes and hope they make it.
