* This is good news…
STRATTON TUNNEL OPEN
TO: ALL USERS OF THE STRATTON TUNNEL
FROM: J. Richard Alsop, III, AIA
Architect of the Capitol
DATE: January 30, 2012
RE: Notice of Opening of Stratton Tunnel
Effective immediately, the Stratton tunnel to the Capitol is open to the public.
The weather is gonna be amazingly warm this week, but that blessing can’t last forever and the tunnel between the Stratton and the Statehouse is a must during winter.
Anyway, it’s not exactly the most important story in the world, but it is something that people like me need to know.
*** UPDATE *** Somewhat off-topic, but it wouldn’t qualify for its own post, so here’s the press release…
The Illinois House Republicans led by Leader Tom Cross (R- Oswego) are launching a new design of their website today at www.ilhousegop.org, which includes a platform driven by up to the minute House Republican news.
“Our caucus believes it is important to keep constituents informed and to keep the lines of communications open. We are making it a priority to provide constituents and the media with up-to-date information through the use of social media and websites. We are excited about this new format and hope you will visit our website often,” said Cross.
The new website is driven primarily by news releases, audio and video feeds. The House Republican Twitter and Facebook feeds are also present on the site. The website can be found at www.ilhousegop.org, the Twitter feed has the handle of @ilhousegop, and you can follow along on Facebook by hitting Like on the Illinois House Republicans page.
It actually looks pretty good.
