Quinn Uses Independence Day To Honor Vets
(Arlington Heights, IL) -- Governor Quinn made his Independence Day all about Illinois veterans. He took the day yesterday to sign three bills into law, designed to help vets get back into the normalcy of life after coming back from the battlefield. The first new law provides more opportunities for the vets to get jobs with the state police. A second law allows veterans to bypass the state skills test if they want to drive a commercial vehicle and have at least two years of experience operating a military vehicle. The last law recognizes the military training and clinical experience of veterans if they apply to be an emergency medical technician.
Peterson Gears Up For Appeal
(Joliet, IL) -- Drew Peterson is gearing up for an appeal and he’s rehired several of his old attorney’s. Peterson apparently believes Steve Greenberg, John Heiderscheidt, and David Peilet have what it takes to help clear his name. The former Bolingbrook cop was convicted last year for
killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio, back in 2004. The original autopsy determined Savio died of an accidental drowning but suspicions grew after Paterson’s fourth wife went missing in 2007. Peterson's team is expected to file the appeal, based on several factors, within the next three months.
Tainted Cheese In Illinois
(Undated) -- People in Illinois may want to cut back on the cheese. Les Freres cheese made by Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics has been linked to multiple listeria cases across the nation, including at least one case in Illinois. Anyone with Les Freres, Petit Frere, and Petit Frere with Truffles in their fridge should throw it out. Health officials say people infected with listeria experience fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions. Symptoms often begin three weeks after infection, but can take anywhere from three to 70 days to clear up.
Thieves Target Homes That May Be Easy Target
(Williamson County, IL) -- Leaving your keys in your car may not be the best idea. Thieves in Williamson County are rummaging through cars at night, getting the keys, then breaking into garages and making off with big ticket items. Police say the thieves have hit dozens of homes in the past several weeks. They say the thieves work quickly and have possibly scoped out the homes before they hit them. Police urge people to lock all their doors and make sure their property isn’t an easy target for the bandits, who happen to still be on the loose.
