— Most suburban GOP lawmakers endorse Pritzker’s COVID-19 stay-at-home rule – Marni Pyke
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200330/most-suburban-gop-lawmakers-endorse-pritzkers-covid-19-stay-at-home-rule
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois GOP House Leader Jim Durkin and Senate Republican Leader Bill Brady supported Pritzker’s executive order issued March 20 that aims to nip the spread of the respiratory infection. Republican and DuPage County Chairman Dan Cronin has appeared with Pritzker at several briefings and said “preserving people’s health and safety has to be the No. 1 consideration in an effort to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our communities. “I intend to let the public health recommendations and data drive decision-making, so we make the most informed decisions possible in this unprecedented situation,” Cronin said. Republican state Rep. David McSweeney of Barrington Hills, however, said last week that Pritzker’s order is “too broad” and the state should align with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “I am 100% totally supportive of what the health care professionals say at the federal level,” McSweeney said. “I believe the best information is at the CDC. No one in Washington has ordered a shutdown of the state of Illinois.”)

— How will county parties hold legally mandated conventions on April 15th?
https://capitolfax.com/2020/03/30/how-will-county-parties-hold-legally-mandated-conventions-on-april-15th/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The ILGOP’s general counsel sent a memo to county chairs days ago. Excerpt… Other than the requirement that conventions be held on a particular date, the Election Code only directs that a county convention elect a county chairman, select delegates to the state convention and shall be held “within the county.” There is no statutory requirement that a convention must be conducted in any particular manner. In other words, for county organizations without bylaws that might direct otherwise, a convention could possibly be conducted by a conference call (so long as all participants are within the county), or by use of absentee ballots or other methods to elect a chairman and to conduct business. As for the requirement that state convention delegates are chosen at the county convention, that task may be delegated (as has traditionally been the case) to county chairmen if necessary. Of course, all notice requirements must be adhered to, as always. For counties with bylaws that dictate how their conventions are to be run, those bylaws will control, and county organizations should abide by them. I asked the same follow-up question to the ILGOP’s Joe Hackler about counties with in-person meeting requirements. His response… There may be a few that explicitly require personal presence for participation. However, each of these counties conventions would conceivably have a rules committee that could possibly help offer some relief.)

March 25 Morning Edition

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Primary not postponed, but no word when city election results will be final Of the 117,120 vote-by-mail applications sent out before last week’s primary, 60,812 have been returned as of Tuesday morning, according to figures from the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners. – Rachel Hinton (DIERSEN: When will the election results be final in your county? How many vote-by-mail applications were sent out in your county? How many were Democrat and how many were Republican? How many mail-in-ballots have been returned and how many are Democrat and how many are Republican? How many mail-in-ballots were rejected and how many of those were Democrat and how many were Republican and for what reasons were they rejected? How many mail-in-ballots have been entered into the system and how many of them are Democrat and how many are Republican?) 
https://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/2020/3/24/21192910/primary-postponed-mail-in-illinois-chicago-election-results
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Of those, 1,339 ballots were rejected for either being postmarked too late or for having an invalid or missing signature. Some may have chosen to vote in person instead of submitting a mail ballot, Allen said. “Our job is to make sure we count every legal ballot,” Allen said. Staff at the city’s electoral board got back to work Tuesday after a few days off and have resumed their four main post-election tasks: vote-by-mail ballot processing, a review of provisional ballots, a precinct canvass — which means a review of all documents and tapes from the various precinct voting locations — and a 5% retabulation of ballots. That process entails the Illinois State Board of Elections randomly selecting five ballot scanners used on Election Day or during early voting and running all ballots cast at those locations through the scanners again to verify that they were counted correctly, Allen said. But there’s no word yet on when last week’s primary results will be certified. “We also have to wait for any late arriving, but on-time postmarked, vote-by-mail ballots, so by law we cannot conclude anything by at least March 31 and also by law we’re allowed to wait at least 21 days after the Election Day to issue the proclamation,” Allen said. That would be April 7. Cook County Clerk Karen Yarbrough released unofficial results for suburban areas on Saturday. There are still some mail ballots that the county can receive so long as they arrive by March 31, James Scalzitti, a spokesman for the clerk, said in an email. Of the 60,000 mail ballots that were sent out by the clerk’s office, around 33,000 will have been tabulated by Wednesday morning, Scalzitti said. The county’s results are expected be certified in early April.)

— DuPage County Board Members Participate In Meeting Via Phone – BERNIE TAFOYA (DIERSEN: According to this article, “Members of the public were not allowed at the DuPage County board meeting so as not to increase the potential spread of COVID-19.” Those who want to abolish the Open Meetings Act in Illinois ( https://www.bettergov.org/news/a-guide-to-the-open-meetings-act-oma-in-illinois/ ) are overjoyed.)
https://wbbm780.radio.com/articles/dupage-county-board-members-participate-in-meeting-via-phone
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The DuPage County Board conducted its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday in Wheaton, and while all board members participated in the meeting, not all were physically in the board room. “There [are> 11 members present and seven participating on telephone,” said DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin following a roll call at the beginning of Tuesday morning’s meeting. Cronin started off the first meeting of the board since Governor J.B. Pritzker’s stay-at-home order saying that the board “will continue to conduct the people’s business while adhering to public health and safety guidelines.” He noted that board members who were at the meeting in-person were at least six feet apart from each other. He said there were four staff members in attendance. Board member Liz Chaplin said the entire board should be on the phone, that it would have been the responsible thing to do. “Leaders have to lead by example, and if we’re going out to meetings when we have the opportunity to tele-conference, what kind of example are we setting?” she said. Board member Mary Ozog said she has risk factors and her son works at Costco and encounters lots of people every day. “We could all be carriers as the Surgeon General said yesterday. And, let’s face it, we all know there’s not enough tests. We can’t rule it out and we can’t find out if we may have had this virus at this point. And, this virus kills,” she said. Ozog said it was her civic duty to attend the meeting by phone. She’s hoping the next meeting on April 14 is entirely by phone. “We should be staying home and working to flatten the curve we’ve all been told about and try not to spread this virus any further,” she said. She points out that doing a meeting entirely by phone is doable. She cites Monday night’s Glen Ellyn board of trustees meeting. “The village of Glen Ellyn where I live had last night, I believe three staff members and the village president. No board members were present and they conducted their meeting through teleconference.” Members of the public were not allowed at the DuPage County board meeting so as not to increase the potential spread of COVID-19. Residents had been invited to make online any comments they would like read into the record during the public participation portion of the meeting. The five other DuPage County board members who participated by phone Tuesday included, Ashley Selmon, Sam Tornatore, Julie Renahan, Tim Elliott and Sadia Covert.)

https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/03/24/coronavirus-denver-issues-stay-at-home-order-panic-buying-forces-reversal-on-liquor-and-marijuana-stores/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Denver has a population of about 2.8 million. The order closes nonessential businesses and public places in Denver. Residents are required to shelter in their homes, leaving only when they must. Grocery shopping and doctor visits are examples of exemptions to the order. At first, liquor stores and recreational marijuana shops didn’t make the list of essential businesses. However the city reversed its original decree within hours after would-be shoppers formed lines wrapping around the block for both types of establishments. Now liquor and marijuana stores can remain open with measures in place to ensure 6-foot spacing between individuals.)

WIGAN TODAY
— These are the conditions that put you at a high risk of catching coronavirus – Sarah Wilson (DIERSEN: What increases your risk of catching coronavirus? I am 71, I have not-in-control type 2 diabetes, and I am obese. Further, my spending 10+ hours each and every day putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out a) puts under a tremendous amount of stress and b) severly limits time that I might spend exercising.)
https://www.wigantoday.net/read-this/these-are-conditions-put-you-high-risk-catching-coronavirus-2456700
(FROM THE ARTICLE: However, evidence suggests that those with weakened immune systems, as with any virus, are more susceptible to becoming infected by coronavirus. This includes those undergoing cancer treatment, those who are being treated for autoimmune diseases like lupus, Multiple Sclerosis or inflammatory bowel diseases, those with HIV and those having an organ or bone-marrow transplant. What underlying conditions put people at the highest risk of severe infection? A report from the World Heath Organization which studied cases in China said that the underlying conditions which put people at the highest risk of severe disease are hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease (such as lung disease or asthma) and cancer. . .What other conditions or factors make severe infection more likely? Age is one of the biggest risk factors when it comes to severity of infection, with the highest mortality rates in patients over the age of 80. It has also been suggested that those who smoke or vape may be more susceptible to catching coronavirus and more likely to contract a severe infection. Those with eating disorders or any other condition which causes them to lose a large amount of weight may also be more susceptible to catching coronavirus given the condition can cause low-white blood cell counts which weakens the immune system.)

U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT
— What the Coronavirus Means for Your Retirement Finances Here’s how the COVID-19 pandemic could change your retirement income and expenses. – Emily Brandon (DIERSEN: If you had a large Roth CD maturing on April 1, 2020, how would you invest it?) 
https://money.usnews.com/money/retirement/401ks/articles/what-the-coronavirus-means-for-your-retirement-finances
(FROM THE ARTICLE: THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF the coronavirus may fall especially hard on retirees who are living on a fixed income. Retirement accounts have lost value, and savings accounts are likely to generate even less interest than they did in the recent past. However, the Social Security and Medicare programs have recently been tweaked in an effort to support retirees. Here is how the coronavirus pandemic could financially impact retirees: Social Security offices are closed. Medicare will now pay for telehealth services. Retirement accounts have lost value. Savings accounts will pay lower interest rates. Recreation spending has dropped. The urge to panic is strong, but stay rational. . .Retirement Accounts Have Lost Value Watching your retirement account balance plummet is especially horrifying for those who are already retired. “Minimizing and/or delaying withdrawals from retirement accounts while we are in the midst of the crisis allows your accounts time to recover,” says Adrienne Ross, a certified financial planner for Clear Insight Financial Planning in Spokane, Washington. “It allows you to delay or avoid selling assets when they are down in value.” Think about ways to delay purchases and reduce spending to give your investments time to recover in value before you lock in the loss by selling your assets. If you have other options, consider tapping into a savings account or emergency fund rather than taking a withdrawal from a depleted retirement or investment account. “Hopefully you’ve got an emergency fund that allows you to keep the money invested,” says Marie Thomasson, a certified financial planner and owner of Modern Assets in Culver City, California. “If you need to withdraw money for required minimum distributions or living expenses, take out only the minimum necessary.” Savings Accounts Will Pay Lower Interest Rates The Federal Reserve’s interest rate cut is likely to lead to lower interest rates on savings accounts. However, you can still look for a savings account that has a better interest rate than you are earning on your current savings. “Online savings accounts are a fantastic alternative to the traditional savings account, and are still FDIC-insured,” Thomasson says. “They offer a much higher interest rate overall and I recommend them to all my clients.” If you won’t need your savings in the near future, you can also park your money in a certificate of deposit. “CDs are a good option if you are comfortable locking in that money for a certain amount of time,” Thomasson says. “Make sure you have enough cash or other income through Social Security or your pension that you won’t need to tap the CD early.”)

— Normal council grants Mayor and City Manager Emergency Powers – Munashe Kwangwari III
https://www.centralillinoisproud.com/news/local-news/normal-council-grants-mayor-and-city-manager-emergency-powers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With the virus continuing to spread in McLean County, both twin cities council’s are taking the next step to ensure people are safe and have nothing to worry about. On Monday, the Normal council met to declare a local emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, members gave Mayor Chris Koos and City Manager Pam Reece emergency powers. What this means is, both Reece and Koos now have the authority to make decisions that might ordinarily be outside municipal policies or codes. That includes spending money outside what’s outlined in the budget to fight the pandemic. In a balance of powers effort, the town council has the ability to review any and all orders issued by the Mayor. “There are situations that we really can’t anticipate,” said City Manager, Pam Reece. “We want the ability to be able to be nimble and react quickly.” The ordinance is now in effect, and will end when Pritzker’s stay at home order ends, which at this time is set for April 7th.)

Italy was the first to join China’s ‘silk road’ economic partnership project … (Italy’s) deaths are out of a population of 60 million people.”)

https://www.newsmax.com/claremlopez/marxist-communist-emanuel-alinsky/2020/03/22/id/959371/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “You never want to let a serious crisis go to waste,” was the war cry of Rahm Emanuel, another socialist progressive. This is an echo of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” which is about the collapse of society and seizure of power. Now, no serious American thinks that President Trump intends to unleash the liberty-crushing arrest, detention, social-credit, or surveillance measures wielded by China. But as we have been warned (by Thomas Jefferson?) “The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.” So, as Andrew McCarthy wrote recently, “It is not sustainable for government to combat the disease by ordering communal and commercial activity to cease, then trying to compensate increasingly destitute citizens by borrowing and printing money to throw at them.” If we must live under “shelter in place”measures for a time to defeat this virus, so be it. Those who lose jobs and businesses may welcome federal financial assistance. Cutting regulations to speed solutions to market is most always a good thing. But, as we confront this crisis, let us be mindful of just how much authority we are ceding to a centralized government authority. We are a free society. If we relinquish that in a moment of fear, we may not get it back. Progressivism, socialism, and communism await those who neglect that “eternal vigilance.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Donald Trump heaped scorn on several members of the White House press corps at a coronavirus briefing Friday, but made a point of responding to questions from a new reporter in the briefing room: His former press secretary. “Mr. President, two questions if you would indulge me,” Sean Spicer said when Trump pointed a finger to call on his former aide. Spicer, of course, is the former White House and Republican National Committee spokesman who vigorously defended Trump’s inauguration crowd size claims and regularly tangled with reporters during combative White House briefings before his ouster in a 2017 shakeup. He also took a spin on “Dancing With The Stars.” Spicer now has his own political talk show for the conservative Newsmax TV outlet. By the time Trump entered the White House Briefing Room to address reporters Friday, Spicer was set to press his old boss for presidential reaction to small business anxieties and reports that senators unloaded stocks before a pandemic-sparked market downturn. The surreal scene played out moments after the president castigated NBC’s Peter Alexander for suggesting that Trump may be giving Americans “a false sense of hope” about coronavirus treatment, asking what he would say to Americans who are scared or sickened by the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.)
