That should about drain the bottom of the barrel. I got to looking and noticed that Tennessee hasn't pulled an afg since round 29. hmmmm...

What struck me about one of those million dollar grants is it was awarded to the Aberdeen Fire Department in Idaho. Aberdeen is a town of 1,840 people, not even the county seat for Bingham county. It is very likely to be a communication grant for the county. Aberdeen is the very definition of a poor farming community.
Last round Rexburg Idaho got another million dollar grant. They are the county seat for Madison County. I found one small blurb from a website that said Rexburg's grant is intended to upgrade fire comms in Madison and Fremont Counties.
I am betting a multi-county coordinated effort was done to improve comms along the I-15 corridor from Bannock County through Fremont County. Good for them. I wish the Fire Chiefs in my area of the State could get together a similar project.
Found a link to a news story, it was a Comm grant, regional, 5 departments Link Here
