July 9th Significant For Two Reasons
(Springfield, IL) -- Lawmakers have until July 9th to come up with a pension fix. Governor Quinn set the date, which could be a slight indication on what he plans to do with the concealed carry bill. Quinn has until the same day, July 9th, to take action on the gun bill, which would give people the right to carry in public. If he vetoes it, lawmakers would have to make a trip to Springfield to override the veto. That sounds like a good time to take a vote on pension reform, or at least check in and see where the progress is.
GOP Supporter Calls Black Candidate, “Street Walker”
(Champaign, IL) -- Racial slurs are being tossed around about one African American candidate challenging Congressman Rodney Davis. A member of Davis’s campaign team says Erica Harold is being used as a "street-walker” and he calls her the love child of the Democratic Party. He
also says Harold, who’s an attorney with a Harvard degree, would likely get hired by a Chicago firm because it needs to meet a quota. The GOP has had a hard time gaining support of minority voters in recent years and the comments about Harold certainly won’t help the situation. Davis has separated himself from the comments.
School Board President Faces Sex Allegations
(Hardin County, IL) -- A school board president is under investigation for allegedly soliciting sex from women. Officials started getting tips about Hardin County School Board President Jerry Fricker back in February. The case was handed over to the Illinois State Police because of a possible conflict of interest in the county. Fricker’s son is the sheriff. So far no charges have been filed.
Honeywell Back In Business
(Metropolis, IL) -- The Honeywell plant in Metropolis is back in business. Front end operations started again today. The plant has been shut down since last summer because the building didn’t meet the safety standards. The company has taken the time off to make upgrades at the plan and they hope to return to full operations once they get approval from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. They plan to fill more than 250 full-time positions once operations are fully restored.
