every interaction I ever had with this guy felt greasy. I’m not sure how he was ever elected, i’m not sure if he accomplished anything. but I am sure that his brand of politics is dull and ineffective. His presence only contributes to the rapid race republicans are running to extinction in Illinois politics.
I hope he does put his money where his mouth is and walks right out of the state. the district will be better off without him.
Can someone smarter than me tell me how much of his campaign warchest the Speaker gets to personally keep when he leaves office? I know that whatever the balance was when the law was changed is what he gets to walk away with.
Yesterday, ISBE updated their fall guideline FAQ. On page 6 the guideline states, “When performing clinical evaluation of a sick individual, school nurses will use enhanced droplet and contact transmission-based precautions. Staff performing this evaluation should use appropriate PPE including: (i) Fit-tested N95 respirator, (ii) Eye protection with face shield or goggles, (iii) Gown, and (iv) Gloves.
Since N95 Masks are impossible to find, does this mean all schools must go remote and are unable to open to students for full in-person or hybrid learning? I know one district that moved full remote from a hybrid model this week specifically because of this change and being unable to procure N95 masks per this requirement.
It appears to be bureaucratic red tape to force districts hands without the state officially ordering full remote learning.
I thought the Sun Times hit job on the Mayor for the McCormick Hospital was a little unfair. Back in March we were fearing the worst after seeing what NYC was going through. When you spend money quickly you don’t spend it perfectly.

Carolyn Schofield should take Skillicorn’s place then.
Interesting Bar Poll in 9th Judicial Circuit, Western Illinois. Republican candidate, and Warren County State’s Attorney, was Not Recommended by legal peers. Very low scores for legal ability, integrity and court management. Very little coverage of this race so far.
Democrat Emily Sutton was appointed to judicial vacancy and is now seeking election. Judge Sutton was Recommended in the Bar Poll.
This race for a circuit wide position covers six counties in Western Illinois.
Electricity back on in Riverdale/Dolton areas after 4 days without. Thanks to ComEd crews, contractors, and mutual aid responding power company crews for doing an impossible job so quickly for so many.
== Looks like Macy’s is closing their Water Tower store.
Why do I get the feeling that’ll kick off a domino effect in the area?==
Because Amazon is killing retail. Macy’s has been struggling for years.
17% I hadn’t considered that angle, but it does make a lot of sense. When I posted my prior comment, I meant it as in: a post looting domino effect. Either way, Annoyed had a point on the tax revenue angle.
Mr. Green Genes, sorry I wasn’t clear on why I believe Annoyed had a point. As I said in my prior comment, my reaction to Macy’s closing was linked to the looting.17% made a valid argument I missed, I’ll freely admit that. As far as I know, the closure is linked to both angles.
Mr Green, Bob the Looter was our poster yesterday who defended looting as some way to solve the world’s race problems. Bob is too dreamy-eyed to understand that Chicago pulls in major dollars from these retailers. And while I’m at it, also read United is moving people back to the suburbs from the Sears Tower, and with it more tax dollars.

Nope. If you’re talking about Bob_loblaw at 11:22 he said ; “People shouldn’t loot, but if there are no laws anymore and no faith in the social order, that’s going to happen.”
I don’t necessarily agree with Mr. Loblaw but why should he pick up the lost city revenue? Maybe you should pick up the lost city revenue.
