— LGBTQ Pride flags vandalized in possible hate crime at Wicker Park church – MORGAN GREENE (DIERSEN: To what extent does your church promote LGBTQ activity? Does your church accept those like me who do not promote LGBTQ activity? My critics/opponents in Wheaton who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout hint/imply/argue/shout that they determine who churches in Wheaton a) accept and b) do not accept.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a letter posted to the church’s website, Glombicki addressed the congregation and said the church was “working hard to ensure the safety of all people at WPLC including our queer siblings.” “As a congregation, our work continues,” Glombicki said in the letter. “While preaching the love of all people each week might seem a bore, while it may seem like the city is welcoming to all sexual orientations and gender identities, and while it seems like something like this would never happen in Wicker Park, our message of radical welcome declaring this congregation ‘Reconciling in Christ’ in 2006 still needs amplification in the here and now.” Wicker Park Lutheran Church has a longstanding history of welcoming all to worship, affirming since 2006 that all people, of all sexual orientations and gender identities, are welcome to become members of the church. “We believe as people of faith that it’s about love — not just tolerance but acceptance and inclusion,” Glombicki said Tuesday night. “We continue to live out and widen those circles of love in all that we do here.” At this Sunday’s 10 a.m. service, hundreds of small rainbow flags will be placed in the lawn area near the flags “as a sign of love.” “As a congregation, each year we celebrate the diversity that God has created,” Glombicki said. This Sunday will be about remembering the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots and celebrating more than a decade spent as a church embracing people from all backgrounds: “We know that love is the final word and we will continue to make that the final word as we live out our ministry here.”)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Toni Preckwinkle reverses decision to retire — aide says she will seek fourth term in 2022 – Rachel Hinton (DIERSEN: If you are retired, what if you had reversed your decision to retire? In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors made it extremely clear to me that if I did not take their early retirement “offer,” they would do whatever they felt was necessary to get rid of me long before I would be eligible for regular retirement 6 years later. Previously, they a) had given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals; b) had always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes; c) had not promoted me beyond GS-13; d) had gotten rid of my mentor in 1987 who had promoted me in 1986, who had gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and who hired me in 1980; e) had kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO; and f) had forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinated did not want me to transfer, but failing that, they wanted me to transfer as a GS-4 Step 1 (currently $33,591/year) intern, that is, to suffer a $60,001/year (64%) pay cut in today’s dollars. They painted what GAO Analysts do as being a unique “trade or occupation.” They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran. They viciously demonized, denigrated, and condemned the fact a) that I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592/year, b) that much of what IRS Revenue Officers do is similar to what GAO Analysts do, c) that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, d) that I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and e) that I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. They were furious that I transferred with me almost 12 years of federal seniority, 30 days of unused vacation days, and 130 unused sick days.)

https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2019/06/24/early-retirement-5-downsides-no-one-tells-you/1553587001/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1) You may suffer from an identity crisis. One of the most common questions people ask when they first meet each other is: “What do you do for a living?” When you’ve spent at least a decade working in any job, you may find it incredibly jolting to no longer be identified as the marketing expert, the investment professional or the management consultant. It was only after I left my job that I realized how obsessed I was with my profession. I often wondered: How is the business doing without me? I was there for 11 years. Were they really able to survive without my expertise? But after months of no emails or phone calls begging for me to come back, I finally accepted the fact that I was no longer needed. . . 3) People may treat you like a misfit. Maybe it’s because retiring early is unconventional. Or maybe they’re secretly jealous you’re not grinding away at a day job. Whatever the reason, people won’t always give you the same amount of respect as they would to a working-class citizen. Eventually, I grew tired of explaining why I retired early or that I wasn’t a trust fund kid. To keep the discussion simple and regain a social identity, I’d simply say I was a writer and tennis coach.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Lake Forest, Lake Bluff officials proceed with caution while preparing for recreational marijuana in Illinois – DANIEL I. DORFMAN  (DIERSEN: Your mayor and your city council members and your county board chairman and your county board members should ASAP call for a vote on the sale of pot and ASAP announce that they will vote against the sale of pot. I urge Wheaton Mayor Phil Suess and Wheaton City Council members Michael Barbier, Erica Bray-Parker, Suzanne Fitch, John K. Rutledge, and Todd Scalzo and the new North District Council member (soon to be Christopher J. Zaruba) to a) call for a vote on the sale of pot in Wheaton ASAP and b) vote NO on the sale of pot in Wheaton.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In Lake Bluff, village board members were scheduled to address a resolution in late June that would prohibit businesses wanting to offer recreational marijuana products from starting up in the village until officials can craft and agree on appropriate regulations, village officials said recently. Lake Forest officials, meanwhile, are planning to host an upcoming workshop, where, they said, they plan to address different issues related to recreational marijuana use. As part of the resolution in Lake Bluff, village board members would direct the Lake Bluff Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals to make recommendations to the board regarding possible regulations affecting recreational cannabis businesses. “State law requires that we allow medical cannabis facilities, but we have the power to ban recreational cannabis facilities,” said Glen Cole, assistant to the village administrator in Lake Bluff. Medical marijuana dispensaries already are permitted to operate in certain portions of the village once a special-use permit is granted, Cole said. During a meeting in early June, Village President Kathy O’Hara said officials plan to consult with village attorneys as they go about developing regulations and weigh the ramifications of legalized recreational marijuana use in Illinois. “We are going to push the pause button,” O’Hara said. “I am going to be bringing back to the board for discussion what best fits our community and where we want to go with this.” The upcoming workshop in Lake Forest also should allow city officials the opportunity to weigh the possible effects of legalized marijuana use in the community, said City Manager Jason Wicha. “We’ll see some policy direction from the city council on how they want to proceed,” Wicha said of the meeting. Wicha said Lake Forest staff members still are reviewing the specifics of the bill that awaits Pritzker’s signature, but he said the city believes provisions are in the bill that could prevent marijuana dispensaries from coming to Lake Forest. “I know that is something that the council is going to want to look at,” he said.)

— OUTSTANDING: Towns should send a message on marijuana – Bill Deckard, Winfield
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20190624/towns-should-send-a-message-on-marijuana
(FROM THE LETTER: So, recreational marijuana will soon be legal in Illinois. But as the Daily Herald helpfully reminds us in their lead article on June 17 and in their editorial on June 19, there’s nothing to stop local cities, towns or villages from outlawing the sale of marijuana within their own city limits. Communities have done just that with things like video gambling and various “adult” businesses, so why not add marijuana to the list? Wouldn’t it be great if a significant number of Illinois communities chose not to profit from this deadly trade? If you are a city council member and have opposed the legalization of marijuana, why not do the courageous thing and vote against allowing its sale in your jurisdiction? As for the rest of us, let’s let our city officials know where we stand. One of the worst things about legalizing marijuana is the message it sends to young people, that getting high is no big deal. Keeping it off the store shelves in your municipality may mean foregoing a few tax dollars, but it will get the message to your children that smoking dope is not a good thing.)

— Wait, Where Did Our New Hire Go? An abrupt change of heart after saying yes to a job can have career repercussions years later—here’s how to navigate this delicate decision – Sue Shellenbarger (DIERSEN: How many job offers did you have when you earned your bachelor’s degree? I accepted the only job offer that I got, it was from Firestone’s regional office: Retail Sales Manager in Firestone’s Chicago Heights store. Employers were discouraged from offering me a job because I was draft bait. They did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment would be approved. My Firestone job did not really require a college degree. The store manager disapproved of my following demographics: Republican, draft avoider, German American, and Missouri Synod Lutheran. He refused to let me start until I passed a probationary period working for the Firestone Store in Gary, Indiana. After I had worked for him for 7 months, he rudely fired me when I gave him my 2-week notice that I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile.)

— Does College Still Pay? Seven New Rules For Making A Good College Choice – Tom Vander Ark (DIERSEN: What work experience did you gain before you started college? I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; and cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline during the summer of 1966. What work experience did you gain while you attended college? I delivered mail 1966-1969 and worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1. Get work experience in high school (and college, if you go). Ironically, the most important first step may have nothing to college. The best way to build work skills is to work. The best way to find out what kind of work you like (and hate) is to work. The best way to inform your postsecondary choices is to work. Get whatever work experiences you can—site visits, job shadows, client-related projects, internships and summer jobs. Try to get paid where you can—you’ll need the money. A growing number of high schools are using the Imblaze app from Big Picture to manage student internships. Over 14 million college students use the Handshake network to find internships (and then jobs) with more than 800 corporate partners.)

But by then, because of age discrimination, I was far too old to have a successful career in accounting.
