NAPERVILLE PATCH
— OUTSTANDING: Naperville Opts Out Of Recreational Marijuana Sales  The council voted 6 to 3 in favor of opting out of recreational cannabis sales. – Lisa Marie Farver (DIERSEN: At Wheaton’s City Council meeting yesterday evening, Lynn Robbins was appointed to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy and I again urged Wheaton to ban the sale of recreational marijuana.)
https://patch.com/illinois/naperville/naperville-opts-out-recreational-marijuana-sales
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After weeks of debate, comments from residents, and anti-cannabis rallies, the Naperville City Council voted to opt out of recreational cannabis sales Tuesday. The City Council meeting brought close to 250 residents out to share their comments about the issue, which ended in a 6-3 vote in favor of opting out. . .The topic of recreational cannabis was discussed for more than three hours at Tuesday’s meeting, which was filled with dozens of residents sporting bright orange “Opt Out Naperville” t-shirts and pins. . .After the public comment portion of the meeting, City Council members had a chance to sound off on the issue. Council member Kevin Coyne said, “I think it’s a very clear and easy decision tonight.” He added that neighboring cities Wheaton and Bolingbrook will likely opt out and that he wanted to prevent Naperville from becoming the “marijuana capital of DuPage County.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The decision to opt out of recreational pot sales came several hours after hundreds of people began packing the Naperville City Council chambers as residents and non-residents waited their turn to comment on the issue of whether to allow the retail sale of pot. The discussion on marijuana sales brought 238 people to sign up for public comment on the topic — a vast majority speaking in favor of opting out while wearing white and orange “opt out” shirts. Over the past couple weeks, the group was organized to rally and lobby city council members to keep recreational cannabis dispensaries out of Naperville. At the same time, residents in support of retail marijuana sales have circulated a survey on the issue. People who asked city council to opt out Tuesday night are concerned recreational pot dispensaries would lead to increased availability to children and would hurt the “family friendly” brand of Naperville.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A “servant class” that serves the needs of the country’s top one percent is among one of the fastest-growing job markets in the United States, economic analysis finds. As about 1.2 million mostly low-skilled legal immigrants are admitted to the U.S. every year to take primarily low-wage jobs, an underclass of servants for the wealthy has boomed over the last decade compared with overall job growth.)

Ever-increasingly, I am disenfranchised.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Lauren White had long dreamed of becoming a teacher, and despite not holding a degree in education, it looked like she was about to see that dream come true. Then it was pulled away at the last minutes, because White is engaged to another woman. She was offered a job as a French teacher at Sacred Heart-Griffin, a Catholic high school in Springfield, Illinois. White, who is herself not a Catholic, tells NewNowNext she went into the interview with nerves, because she “kind of figured that since it was a Catholic school, it wouldn’t be the most inclusive space, obviously.”)

August 23 Morning Edition

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Wheaton’s City Council has narrowed the field of its 10 applicants for its West District vacancy to 3, and I am not one of them. The Council will interview those 3 finalists in the coming weeks. Critics of the Roosevelt Road corridor study by Camiros, Ltd. and Valerie Kretchmer & Associates (https://www.wheaton.il.us/930/Roosevelt-Road) have called for the Council to halt all action on the study until it fills its West District vacancy. It appears, sadly, like before, when the Council filled its North District vacancy, that it will not disclose who the 3 finalists are. I hope that the 3 finalists will get together, issue a joint press release, and call for a candidate forum to be held. Residents of Wheaton’s West District, including me, should have the opportunity to urge the Council to select one of those 3 finalists. Obviously, one could determine who the 3 finalist are if all 7 of the unsuccessful candidates got together and issued a press release. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Your GOPUSA Illinois Editor, Dave Diersen, calls for DuPage County to ASAP a) draft, b) propose, c) seek input on from journalists like me, d) discuss, and e) vote on official press credentialing policies and procedures. Press credentialing requirements should NOT include a) having a degree in journalism, b) being paid, c) claiming to be just a reporter and not a journalist, d) denying being an activist, e) or claiming to be nonpartisan. I have served as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. Since 2004, GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails have gone out each and every morning, and since 2015, each and every evening too. Those emails have included links to more than 344,100 articles and information on many upcoming events. I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $98,198-$127,654/year. What GAO Analysts do (https://www.gao.gov/about/careers/career-paths/) is extremely similar to what journalists do. In addition, I became a Forensic Accountant in 1997, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Licensed CPA in 1981, Certified Internal Auditor in 1981, and CPA in 1979. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Since 2005, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have demonized me, denigrated, me, and condemned be as being like Jeff Gannon. Since 2005, they have viciously used against me what happened with GOPUSA, Talon News, and White House Correspondent Jeff Gannon. SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talon_News They paint me as being a clone of Jeff Gannon and even worse things. Ever since I became a GOPUSA reporter in 2000, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I ask bad questions at press conferences and share privileged information with reporters that have caused Republican candidates to be defeated and even worse things. Of course, I should sue my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I should write a book about activists, candidates, elected officials, and party leaders in Illinois who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but a) who do NOT want me to know about their press conferences, b) who do NOT want me to attend their press conferences, c) who do NOT want me to ask questions during their press conferences, d) who do NOT want me to speak with other reporters, e) who have barred me from attending their press conferences, f) who have had me thrown out of their press conferences, and/or g) who do not want me to report on their press conferences. – Dave Diersen

AMERICAN PRESS INSTITUTE
— SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 FLASHBACK: Offer disclosures and statements of values – CRAIG SILVERMAN (DIERSEN: Of course, journalists should disclose the sources and amounts of all their income. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is $53,316/year. My Social Security is $2,118/year. All the time and money necessary to send out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email each and every morning and each and every evening comes from me. By definition, journalists who are employees of newspapers, television stations, radio stations, websites, or other organizations cannot claim to be independent of their employer. I should sue any individual, any organization, any company, or any government that hints/implies/argues/shouts that I am paid by the Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, or any other organization. If the aforesaid organizations paid me, they would promote my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. In fact, the aforesaid organizations fail/refuse to promote my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.

Organizational links to sources, organizations or events mentioned in reporting. Limitations of any data or material used. (Meaning: Here’s what we don’t know, or some mitigating factors.) When unusual methods are used to gather information (such as in the above example). When there is an unusual arrangement with sources (such as enabling them to remain anonymous or use a pseudonym). . .A reporter’s name, email, phone number and even Twitter handle are now common information that accompanies their content. . .Beyond disclosures about specific reporting, more reporters and organizations are offering pages that are updated over time to disclose any personal ties, investments or relationships. . .PunditFact, an offshoot of PolitiFact, offers a paragraph of disclosure about its sources of funding right on its homepage.)

QUORA
— DECEMBER 1, 2012 FLASHBACK: What is the difference between a journalist and a reporter? – Ashutosh Sinha
https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-a-journalist-and-a-reporter
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In professional news media, all reporters are journalists but not all journalists are reporters. “Reporter” is a specific role: Someone who gathers facts and information from multiple sources, verifies them and writes a story or relays (reports) those findings in a TV, radio or Internet broadcast. “Journalist” includes anyone who is part of the editorial process of gathering and disseminating news: Reporters, editors, producers, photographers, camera operators, news columnists, etc. In a literal sense, anyone can be a reporter by relaying their direct observations. (e.g. I saw a car crash.) With the advent of social media such as Twitter, amateur reporters are increasingly a breaking news alert network for traditional news organizations. Ordinary people can also commit acts of journalism by following the journalistic process of fact-gathering, multi-source verification and putting those facts in context (e.g. A high-speed police chase after a million dollar bank robbery yesterday ended when the suspect’s car crashed into a lamp post at a busy downtown intersection.) Today, reporters’ roles are being blurred as they are required to take on more tasks that include photography, editing, blogging, shooting and producing video, audio, etc., so “journalist” is increasingly the most appropriate catch-all term.)

— City Councilman Robert Wu Seeks Second Term – Ellyn Wexler 
http://towncourier.com/city-councilman-robert-wu-seeks-second-term/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many of the skills Wu has honed during his day job—as senior attorney at the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO)—have helped him become effective in his City of Gaithersburg position. “I often find myself in the role of interpreting ordinances, parsing out legalese when amendments to existing language are proposed, and, at least in one instance, actually drafting an ordinance,” he said. “At GAO,” Wu explained, “I serve in a quasi-judicial role, adjudicating bid protests filed with our office. The skillset is very similar to that used in deciding matters brought before the city council, including fairmindedness, the ability to absorb large records and ultimately render a decision.” “A firm belief that process matters” also factors into both jobs. “As companies who file protests with GAO understand, while we might not necessarily agree with them in the end, each argument raised is heard and carefully considered,” Wu said. “The same goes for my work at city council. Each individual who takes their valuable time to appear before us or submit written matters has to know that their views have been heard and seriously considered.”)

They turn everyone that they can against me, including those who run the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream, those who ran the Wheaton Bowl, Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) members, Wheaton City Council members, and voters in my precinct. They make false accusations against me and demonize me, denigrate me, and condemn me at MTRCC meetings. They intimidate/threaten those who might come to my defense. They discourage Republican candidates, elected officials, party leaders, and organizations from helping sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks.

WIKIPEDIA
— Negative campaigning (DIERSEN: If you seek a government office or a political office, you should expect that sooner or later, your opponents will engage in negative campaigning against you. I am seeking appointment to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy. Even though there is no chance that I will be selected, my opponents in Wheaton’s West District are engaging in negative campaigning against me. At the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) August 14, 2019 meeting at the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream, two of my fellow MTRCC members in Wheaton’s West District falsely charged me with harassing the hotel’s employees. In addition, one of them, in front of an attorney, said that he was going to do everything that he could to stop everyone from reading my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.) 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negative_campaigning

(FROM THE POSTING: Negative campaigning or mudslinging is the process of deliberate spreading negative information about someone or something to worsen the public image of the described. Deliberate spreading of such information can be motivated either by honest desire of the campaigner to warn others against real dangers or deficiencies of the described, or by the campaigner’s dishonest ideas on methods of winning in political, business or other spheres of competition against an honest rival. The public image of an entity can be defined as reputation, esteem, respect, acceptance of the entity’s appearance, values and behavior by the general public of a given territory and/or a social group, possibly within time limits. As target groups of public and their values differ, so negativity or positivity of a public image is relative; thus, to be successful, negative campaigning has to take into account current values of the group it addresses. The degree of strictness in practicing the group’s values as opposed to its tolerance for violating the norms has also to be taken into consideration.)

Since 1997, in today’s dollars, I have had a $74,338/year budget shortfall. In today’s dollars, my GS-13 Step 10 GAO salary was $127,654/year. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $53,316/year, or only 42% of what my salary was.)

— Panel seeks tax break for black homeowners – Bill Smith (DIERSEN: Do any of the 10 who are seeking to be appointed to fill the Wheaton City Council West District vacancy favor something like this for Wheaton?)
https://evanstonnow.com/story/government/bill-smith/equity/2019-08-16/82700/panel-seeks-tax-break-for-black-homeowners
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The resolution said the measures would help “remedy the city’s role in historical and institutional racism and discrimination.” The resolution adds that while much of the “wealth and opportunity gap” affecting black residents are tied to home loan redlining practices in parts of the 2nd and 5th Wards, the commission didn’t want to limit the reparations programs to residents in those neighborhoods. The panel ducked addressing issues regarding how the policies might be implemented, “acknowledging that additional research and data are necessary to create a fair and equitable process and determine the long-term sustainability of the funding sources.”)

DAILY HERALD
— 10 want West District seat on Wheaton City Council – Katlyn Smith (DIERSEN: I urge everyone who is interested in this, and especially Wheaton’s West District residents, to a) find out everything that they can about the 10 candidates, b) analyze that information, c) determine who they believe the top 1, 2, or 3 candidates should be, and d) email their recommendation to Wheaton’s City Council at [email protected] along with their reasons for their recommendation. I hope that in the days ahead, the Daily Herald provides much more information about the 10 candidates. I hope that the Daily Herald a) asks the 10 candidates to complete a detailed questionnaire and b) publishes the responses to that questionnaire. Wheaton West District residents should have the right to know not only the applicants’ names, but a) how long they have lived in the city and in the district, b) their political affiliation, c) why they want to be appointed to fill the vacancy, d) what they believe the most important issues are that the city needs to address, e) what their opinion is on how those issues could be addressed, f) will they vote for or against selling pot in Wheaton, g) what their work experience is, h) what their education is, i) what professional certifications and licenses are, and j) what experience do they have carrying out typical city council functions: Review and approve the annual budget; Establish long- and short-term objectives and priorities; Oversee performance of the local public employees; Oversee effectiveness of programs; Establish tax rates; Enter into legal contracts; Borrow funds; Pass ordinances and resolutions; Modify the city’s charter; Regulate land use through zoning laws; Regulate business activity through licensing and regulations; Regulate public health and safety; Exercise the power of eminent domain; Communicate policies and programs to residents; Respond to constituent needs and complaints; and Represent the community to other levels of government. (SEE: https://www.nlc.org/city-councils )
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190809/10-want-west-district-seat-on-wheaton-city-council
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wheaton City Council members have their pick of 10 applicants seeking to fill a vacant seat representing the West District. The group of candidates vying for a 2-year appointment to the council includes some familiar names in DuPage County politics. The applicants are: Nancy Harding, Edward Ahern, Jeffrey Antonelli, Robert McNeily, Lynn Robbins, Mark Kmiecik, Angela Blatner, David Diersen, Khizar Jafri and Krista Selvey. Diersen is the founder of the daily newsletter Gopillinois.com. McNeily lost his bid for the West District seat in 2016 against incumbent Todd Scalzo. According to his LinkedIn page, he is the Midwest regional manager of Turning Point USA, a conservative group founded by Wheeling High School alum Charlie Kirk for college and high school students. Robbins, a former Illinois Park and Recreation Association board member, also ran unsuccessfully against Scalzo for the West District seat in 2016. Kmiecik finished third in another three-way race for the seat in 2009. Jafri, a finance and accounting consultant, lost to Tim Elliott for a District 4 spot on the DuPage County Board in 2016. The Democrat was seeking his first elected office at the time. Four council members represent Wheaton’s four voting districts, while two members and the mayor are elected at-large. The seat became vacant in July when Scalzo, an attorney, stepped down after 10 years. The council is set to vote on appointing his successor in September. Council members recently filled another empty 2-year council seat. The North District seat became vacant in May when Phil Suess was sworn in as Wheaton’s first new mayor in 12 years. The council named Christopher Zaruba to the post on July 1 from a field of 13 applicants.)

https://www.thetelegraph.com/news/article/Pot-law-is-hazy-on-town-8217-s-rights-Illinois-14294240.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state organization representing local units of government is asking leaders in the General Assembly to make clarifying changes to the recreational marijuana law before it takes effect Jan. 1. Brad Cole, executive director of the Illinois Municipal League, said the 1,298 cities, villages and towns in the state need guidance on four aspects of the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, signed into law by Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker in late June. There is confusion, he said, about how law enforcers will know a person who is growing cannabis in their home is doing so legally as a prescribed medical marijuana user. Municipalities also are uncertain how they may regulate the drug. Cole is asking legislators to write what is known as a trailer bill, a companion measure that clarifies a statute. The idea has bipartisan support. Sen. Heather Steans, D-Chicago, one of the statute’s framers and her chamber’s sponsor, said it’s likely that a trailer bill will happen. Republican Sen. Jason Barickman, from Bloomington, said he thinks his colleagues spent “a lot of time on the legislative language,” and any subsequent bill should be consistent with the goals of the original negotiations. “I understand and support the idea of a trailer bill to make clarifications that the various stakeholders have brought forward. I think it’s very likely we’ll see one for multiple reasons, and we may see it as early as this fall,” he said. “I anticipate hearing from many stakeholders about clarifications they would like to see. By and large, that’s what the IML is seeking here.” In a letter to lawmakers, Cole highlighted four points the league’s members would like the General Assembly to address. Each one, he said, was mentioned in his testimony before a panel of legislators in late May before the recreational marijuana bill became law. “These are common sense issues” to determine what is legal and what is no, Cole said. The new law allows those who have a medical marijuana card to grow no more than five plants in their home without needing to be a licensed cultivation center or craft grower. The League’s concern, Cole wrote in his letter, is the lack of “registration or notification requirements to municipalities or their police departments” about which residences can legally grow cannabis plants. “We’re saying, we need to know,” he said. “How do we know if these are five legal plants or five illegal plants?” Steans said the idea of “a registry had been raised,” but some interest groups expressed concerns it might be a civil rights violation. She added local governing bodies would know if the plants were legal by asking whether their owner had a medical marijuana card. Barickman said the issue is one with “wildly different” viewpoints. “I think you’re going to have those in law enforcement presumably asking for some type of registry, and I think you’re going to have others adverse to that,” he said. Also in question is a provision in the law dictating how governing bodies can regulate recreational marijuana. “No unit of local government … may prohibit home cultivation or unreasonably prohibit use of cannabis authorized by this Act,” according to the law. Cole, in his letter, wrote that “unreasonably” is not defined, so towns and municipalities might be exposed to “unknown litigation as they attempt to protect the health, safety and well-being of their citizens.” The League is asking the General Assembly to clarify the word’s meaning. And it is seeking guidance on two regulations dictating how funds are distributed and may be spent by local governments. Money directed into one account, for example, now has rules for how it may be spent. “This is restricted money being put into an unrestricted disbursement fund,” thus creating accounting confusion for local officials, Cole said. Department of Revenue Director David Harris was copied on the Municipal League letter. In an emailed statement, a spokesperson said the department “is working to ensure successful implementation and rollout of the Cannabis Regulation and Taxation Act and works with all stakeholders to that end.” “I think what’s happening right now is the multiple stakeholders are doing a deeper review of the law now that it’s been set, and they’re raising some questions that I think we can address through a trailer bill, providing some clarity,” Barickman said. Steans added the recreational marijuana statute created large policy changes and “lots of different viewpoints” need to be considered. In an emailed statement, Jordan Abudayyeh, Pritzker’s press secretary, seemed to indicate the governor is open to a trailer bill. The administration, she said, “is focused on ensuring the successful implementation” of the law. “Multiple state agencies are engaged in these efforts as we move forward creating one of the most equity centric industries in the country,” Abudayyeh said. “The Pritzker administration stands ready and willing to continue working to ensure Illinois has a cannabis industry that other states can look to as a model for equity and success.”)

— At its Monday August 5, 2019 meeting, Wheaton’s City Council unanimously passed a resolution setting August 26 as the public hearing date concerning a draft zoning ordinance amendment that would prohibit cannabis business establishments in Wheaton. B.J. Slinger and I spoke in favor of banning the sale of pot in Wheaton. Roosevelt Road rezoning study critic Elizabeth Hain spoke in favor of selling pot in Wheaton. Roosevelt Road rezoning study critic Martha Bradley called for Wheaton to hold off on taking action on the study until the West District vacancy is filled. So far, 31 have requested applications to be appointed to fill the West District vacancy, 4 completed applications have been received, and one incomplete application has been received. 5:00 PM today, Tuesday, August 6, 2019, is the deadline for filing an application. I am disappointed a) that the 5 applicants have not publicly announced their candidacy and b) that Wheaton has not released their names. If appointed, will they vote for or against selling pot in Wheaton? Because of the aforesaid uncertainty, I will be filing by 5:00 PM. – Dave Diersen

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Look at the way he talks about Muslims. Look at the way he talks about immigrants. Look at the way he talks about people of color,” Biden told CNN. “He talks about them almost in subhuman terms.” That, Biden said, coaxes white supremacists from the shadows of American society. “This is pure and simple white nationalist terrorism,” Biden said, adding that he supports his support for adopting a federal domestic terrorism law, a move that could give the Justice Department more avenues to investigate and prosecute certain acts. Trump on Monday called on the nation to condemn white nationalism, but he didn’t apologize for his incendiary rhetoric on race, from referring to illegal immigration as an “invasion” to his recent Twitter attacks on black members of Congress.)

https://www.nprillinois.org/post/do-something-calls-ring-out-after-mass-shootings-el-paso-and-dayton#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The announcement came in a late afternoon news conference in which officials released the names of the El Paso shooting victims. They range in age from 15 to 90. There are 22 victims — 12 are male and 10 are female. Thirteen are listed as U.S. citizens, seven are Mexican and one is German. According to the list provided by the police, one person is ‘undetermined.’ Mexican authorities also say the number of Mexican victims is eight. El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen said the suspect in Saturday’s shooting purchased his gun — a 7.62 caliber rifle — legally “near his hometown in Allen” [Texas] and drove 10 to 11 hours to El Paso. He said the suspect has been cooperative with investigators, adding, “He volunteered most of the evidence that we’re able to utilize at this time.” Allen said the suspect “appears to be in a state of shock and confusion.” Mayor Margo, a Republican, acknowledged some of the tensions surrounding the planned visit by Trump.)

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/kellyanne-conway-touts-trump-as-first-president-to-start…approving-of-gay-marriage
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As Democrats vying for the White House frame themselves as LGBT “allies” looking to replace a “homophobic” incumbent, recent comments by one of Donald Trump’s top advisers underscore that the 45th president actually agrees with the Left on key aspects of the homosexual agenda. At the end of May, Kellyanne Conway contrasted her boss’ endorsement of LGBT “Pride Month” with his predecessors’ handling of same-sex “marriage,” telling reporters outside the White House she was “old enough to remember the 2008 campaign where Hillary and Obama were arguing with each other about who was more in favor of traditional marriage. It wasn’t so long ago. He is the first president to start as president approving of gay marriage.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville Councilman Kevin Coyne, who led the effort to prevent the sale of recreational marijuana in the city, said he believes more municipalities will say “no.” “I do feel this should not belong in the suburbs,” Coyne said. The main concerns are a potential increase in traffic crashes, use among teens and consumption of harder drugs, Coyne said. . .The state will issue up to 75 retail dispensary licenses, including 47 in the Chicago metro area, before May 1. Existing medical cannabis dispensaries can apply for early approval licenses to either sell recreational marijuana on site or at a different location. Up to 110 licenses will be available by December 2021. . .Bloomingdale Village Trustee Frank Bucaro said he’s perfectly OK not getting additional revenues because he believes recreational marijuana will bring about a slew of negative consequences, particularly for youth. “How do you put a dollar amount on that?” Bucaro said.)

ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION
— 7 ways your resume is holding you back – Mary Caldwell (DIERSEN: Applicants to fill the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy are required to submit their resume. The deadline is Tuesday, 5:00 PM, August 6, 2019. I am updating my resume for the first time in almost 22 years. What suggestions do you have for me?) 
https://www.ajc.com/business/employment/ways-your-resume-holding-you-back/nAj4CDe0npKjkNkrD9xhqN/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: You didn’t include dates. In an effort to avoid age discrimination, some job candidates will leave dates off their resume. But this is such an expected part of a resume that leaving it off stands out in a negative way, U.S. News & World Report warns. If you’re worried about revealing your age, include only your last 15 years of experience. This time period is often more relevant to employers, so it gives them the information they need without aging yourself. You have unexplained gaps in your employment. Employers usually understand that life happens and that gaps in work history aren’t uncommon, WiseBread says. What concerns them, however, is large gaps without any explanation. If you have periods of unemployment, include a single line of explanation, such as “Family Care” if you took time off while raising your kids or “Volunteering for XYZ organization.” . . . You list irrelevant work experience Related experience usually matters most to employers, so if you include irrelevant past experience, you’re distracting the recruiter, according to The Muse. Include only those skills that can be transferred to the position you’re applying for instead of every job you’ve ever held. Provide details about any accomplishments or training that could benefit you in the job you’re applying for.)

ILLINOIS MUNICIPAL LEAGUE
— OUTSTANDING: IML Publishes Adult-Use Cannabis Resources (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, someone needs to take the lead in each of Illinois’ 1,298 municipalities and in each of Illinois’ 102 counties to assure that the sale of pot is banned by the end of this year. Illinois Church Action on Alcohol & Addition urges you to “1. Contact your Mayor, Village Trustees, Aldermen, and County Board member to ask them to sponsor or support an ordinance to prohibit retail marijuana sales, dispensaries, and marijuana businesses. 2. Talk with churches/pastoral associations, local law enforcement, doctors, counselors, fire chief and emergency personnel, teachers, school administrators, activists, and others in the community and ask them to write letters and speak at a public hearing in support of a ban on marijuana sales. 3. Attend and speak at Municipal and County Board meetings.”) 
https://www.iml.org/page.cfm?key=22360&slide=380
(FROM THE POSTING: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition Illinois municipalities may prohibit cannabis business establishments from locating in their jurisdiction by adoption of a local ordinance. IML recommends a public hearing in advance of the adoption of such an ordinance to create a record that supports that determination. While local governments are required to allow medical cannabis dispensaries subject only to local zoning provisions, adult-use cannabis business establishments may be prohibited. The first state licenses for adult-use cannabis business establishments are anticipated to be issued to organizations operating existing medical dispensaries, authorizing retail sales of adult-use cannabis at those locations starting January 1, 2020. Municipalities with medical dispensaries operating in their jurisdiction may limit or prohibit adult-use cannabis business establishments through local ordinances, but may want to consider adopting those provisions in order to provide those existing dispensaries clear direction in advance of any application. Linked here is the model ordinance: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former state Rep. JEANNE IVES, who waged a bitter challenge against then-Gov. Bruce Rauner in last year’s GOP gubernatorial primary, has thrown her hat in the ring for the 6th Congressional District. Ives’ bid to unseat Democrat Sean Casten assures fireworks. Republicans have identified the seat, which pulls from Chicago’s Western suburbs, as a battleground. Casten, and fellow freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood, yanked their suburban seats from Republicans in 2018, and the GOP wants revenge. The GOP may have the perfect soldier in Ives, who isn’t afraid to get dirty in campaigning, but she first must face former Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti in the primary. That’s some delicious political irony given Sanguinetti was on Rauner’s ticket when Ives battled for governor. Rauner only eked out a victory in the primary before going on to lose to Democrat J.B. Pritzker in November. If turnout for the 2020 primary is low, she would have a natural advantage in the race against Sanguinetti — who still has little name recognition even after being Rauner’s No. 2. “Ives has a knack for Trumpy divisiveness that will serve her well in the Republican primary, but absolutely doom her in a general election because voters kicked out the last member of Congress for being too close to Trump,” Tom Bowen, a Democratic political strategist, told Playbook. In the 2018 primary, Ives drew the ire of Democrats and some Republicans alike for running an ad that was denounced as anti-immigrant, racist, sexist and transphobic. Casten may be well-prepared to face the likes of Ives, having gone through a tough cycle in 2018 when he unseated former GOP Rep. Peter Roskam in a contentious and high-profile race. This time, Casten has the advantage of being an incumbent in a district that’s veering left of its traditional GOP stronghold. Casten also isn’t afraid to duke it out in debates or on social media, which could make this race a fun one to watch. Ives’ entry into the 6th District race comes days after second quarter financial reports showed Sanguinetti raised just $103,647 — a paltry sum compared to the $700,000-plus Casten has raised.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— The limits and hurdles of issuing reparations for slavery America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners – Linda Chavez (DIERSEN: Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion are reparations. Democrats and RINOs make Republicans pay the price of AA, Diversity, and Inclusion.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/jul/18/limits-and-hurdles-issuing-reparations-slavery/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The problem is that reparations today would punish individuals who committed no wrongs while possibly rewarding some who suffered no harm. Justice requires individual culpability, not collective guilt. A people cannot be held accountable for the actions of their forebears—that path leads to endless cycles of violence, even genocide. But aside from the injustice of punishing offspring for their ancestors’ crimes, properly distributing reparations would be a very messy ordeal. Proponents frequently point to Germany’s payment of more than $70 billion in restitution to Holocaust victims since 1952 — but those victims or their immediate heirs are identifiable, as are the Japanese Americans interned in camps during World War II, whom Congress authorized to receive compensation of $20,000 each in the 1988 Civil Liberties Act. But as a recent New York Times article suggests, defining who might be eligible and how much compensation would be owed is difficult at best. America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners and former slaves. Of the 325 million people residing here now, only a fraction can trace their ancestry back to anyone living in the United States in 1860, the last decennial census before the Civil War and Emancipation.)
