>>Former IL Rep. Running For Old Seat
(Undated) -- A former Illinois Representative is attempting a comeback to re-gain the seat he once had. Republican Bobby Schilling announced yesterday his intention to run against current Representative Cheri Bustos in the next election cycle.

>>Farmers Say IL Rain Is A-O-K
(Undated) -- Illinois farmers say despite the state witnessing one of its wettest years on record crops are thriving. The Farm Bureau reminds folks this time last year that farmers were concerned about severe drought conditions and damaged crops. But the first six months of 2013 have been
the wettest months on record in Illinois. Officials say Illinois' soybean and corn crops will in fact benefit from the additional moisture.
>>Couple Does Its Part To Help Families Of AZ Firemen
(Prospect Heights, IL) -- A Chicago-area couple won't let geography get in its way of helping the families of the 19 firefighters who died last week fighting Arizona wildfires. NBC Chicago says Tim and Marta Kelliher of Prospect Heights are giving every penny they get from each sale of a limited edition T-shirt to a relief fund to benefit the families of the "Hot Shot" fire crew who died battling the blaze near Prescott, Arizona. The T-shirt is being produced at the couple's Illinois business and features the "Hot Shot" crew's seal on the front and names of all 19 fallen firefighters on the back. The T-shirts can be purchased until July 31st for 25-dollars apiece by logging onto www-dot-events-dot-org-backslash-Prescott19.
>>Hazardous Materials Reports Aren't On Up-And-Up
(Undated) -- Reports about hazardous materials intended to keep people in Illinois informed about safety hazards may not be as reliable as originally thought. A new report has found that facilities around the country - including ones in Illinois - aren't doing their job of releasing to the public lists of potentially hazardous chemicals that are stored on their properties. The reports says facilities from Illinois and Wisconsin actually reported errors and inconsistencies. The report singled out companies in Bloomington and Seward for oversight of its reporting responsibilities.
