* Bobby Schilling is running again and he appears tea partier than ever, perhaps because he was repeatedly slammed for becoming “too DC” in the last election. His new campaign slogan: “Bring Bobby Back”…
The former Congressman said we were defeated by 7% due to redistricting. “We need to do a better job of getting people out to vote,” Schilling said. “I’m the pizza guy and a dad. It’s not fun being in Congress, but I only have to look into the eyes of my kids and look at all the liberals ruining our country and it’s pretty easy to step into the race again.”
“We have to engage this country. People have destroyed this state and I am not going to sit down and watch this happen!”
Schilling said people are escaping to Iowa. Paul Ryan called him to encourage him to run saying Obama has big issues including the national debt, but that or fixing the economy is not his priority. His number one priority is taking back the House in the next election.
Ryan told Schilling, “By the time he is through, you will not be ale to recognize this country.” Schilling said Americans have to get engaged and help get America back on track.
Considering how poorly the article was written, I’m not sure that Schilling’s priority is actually “taking back the House,” since the House remains in GOP hands.

Lt. Governor Sheila Simon is out trying to make sure today’s students will have a better understand of mathematics with the new integrated math curriculum. Simon and the Illinois State Board of Education released the state’s first sixth- through twelfth-grade math curriculum in May and urged middle and high schools state wide to implement the new courses this fall.
Simon visited Pinck-neyville High School Thursday morning, which is one of the Illinois schools which have adopted the program.
Simon says the program is about the student’s future and helping have the tools to compete for college and beyond. […]
The program is outlined to include all facets of mathematics. The students would not take algebra one year and the geometry the next; instead the, the different mathematics are integrated.
Apparently, The Southern has no editors. They’re obviously cutting back at the paper because they’re using a “news service” that appears to be sponsored by the Illinois Policy Institute for numerous front page stories, including…
