Jeff, Jeff, Jeff Odd that you would pick this race to write about ... or is it? As Paul Harvey usedRead More to say, "now you know the rest of the story." But in this race you haven't written about the rest of the story. I bet the rest of the story would be a real interesting read. Are you going to write about that? You could do it on your coffee break (sorry old friend, I just couldn't resist!) Too bad only 12 people read the Patch anymore. And even less write a blog. The Patch had a good thing going there for a while.

Bob, I would not have been able to resist either and sadly, I can't talk about it. But what I canRead More say is that mistake actually was an honest one. When the Illinois State Board of Elections called the office (and not the campaign), I didn't think twice about making the correction. And the best evidence is that I did it on my County email account which I knew would be posted with the correction. It's not like I was trying to hide anything! And I completely agree with you about Patch, but since I'm putting the stuff up on my blog anyway (http://thefirstward.net/) I thought I'd put some of it here too. And TheFirstWard.net is doing really well. Let me know if you ever want to contribute!
No tea for me, please

Linda does not care about the children of Illinois?? That is a laugh and a HALF!!!!!
Max Smart April 15, 2014 at 11:45 am
Here's a question. Why is it OK for Linda to make racist comments without repercussions? If sheRead More were white, she would have been run out of town.
Jeff Ward April 15, 2014 at 02:26 pm
Max, And that's exactly right! As I explained in the column, minorities, by virtue of beingRead More minorities, can make racist comments. White people can't.

The fact of the matter is that prisons ARE being built for profit and who better to incarcerate, inRead More another form of modern day slavery, than putting minorities in jail. Studies are abundant that show there is a pathway of putting young black people out of schools, expelled for the same act a non-black child gets suspended for. And p.s., the schools in inner cities are set up to fail, lack of teachers,funding, books,etc., so you can say 'see, they just don't want to learn." Thus starts the path to prison, no education, no training programs, no jobs in concentrated minority areas, no future, stricter laws for low gauged infractions, etc. But when the rich and privileged are in court they can either go to a rehab. or sentenced to community service or probation with no time served due to 'affluencesa' or 'prison would not be go for my client'. The public education system is on its way to privatization such as the prison system because we are now an oligarchy! These moronic responses show how America is still not willing to accept or change the demonization of black people. Brought over and enslaved for over 400 years; freed in 1865 to 1965 with no rights. Still being subject to discrimination but the easy answer is they are lazy, thugs. The reality is American was started by a bunch of lawless yahoo's who still tell you to think non-whites are superior and all others are inferior. Raped, pillaged, murdered over 20 million Native American's but the quick response in the fall to....drugs, minorities,illegal immigrants, etc. The system is set up this way so you feel more comfortable not facing the fact that those you admire or tell you what you want to hear, so that you don't have to look to the core of how this country was founded. Prisons are just another form of slavery!

I am a Naperville Local and a nurse practitioner! I also have a degree in Nutrition. Please checkRead More out the book and grocery guide I just published to help yourselves and others choose the healthiest foods at the grocery store to avoid hormones, GMO's, and other harmful ingredients. Farms and companies are putting things into our foods to make animals fat faster and to keep things on the shelf longer. WE are EATING those things the animals eat! It's confusing! What do we eat? What do we buy at the grocery store? Where do we get the best meat, eggs, milk, produce, bread?? The grocery guide is called "Before the Store: a guide to knowing what's in your grocery cart" Check it out on Amazon, at Anderson's Bookshop dwntwn Naperville and on my site: healthyfarmplateyou.com feel free to email me at healthyfarmplateyou@gmail.com Jaclyn Taverna.

I would rather prevent Financially Modified Politicians - they are the real problem in this country,Read More and have caused far more damage to health than the food issue. Just my opinion.

If dogs have their ancestors wolves, we could see how human change genes of them. This example isRead More showing that all domestic animals genes where changed. We eat most of them or products from them. In thousands years we did not see a huge problems here. GMO products could be introduced right now and despite majority of science did not see any problems here people must know and choose. Majority think in their time that earth is the center of universe. They was wrong. Majority think that greenhouse gases are responsible for climate change. They are wrong. Majority in science is nonsense and create from science political propaganda machine for political or economical reason. Despite I think that GMO products are not dangerous, only time could solve how smart I am.
