DAILY HERALD
— Naperville Police chief: No evidence of hate crime in Buffalo Wild Wings incident – Marie Wilson
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191106/naperville-police-chief-no-evidence-of-hate-crime-in-buffalo-wild-wings-incident
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The confrontation was triggered by a white man, who officials have not identified, whose comments led managers at the restaurant to ask the party of 18 to move. Fuller said the man, who does not live in Naperville, has been notified he is banned from all Buffalo Wild Wings locations and the company is working on protocol to ensure the ban is enforced “within the bounds of the law.” . . . Buffalo Wild Wings says the managers — both women, one black, one white — were fired after the company’s internal investigation. Fuller said the host involved is a black man who quit his job the evening of the confrontation. . .Buffalo Wild Wings already was in the process of rolling out a diversity and sensitivity campaign and training program called RESPECT, Fuller said. A poster in the back of the restaurant was in place and the company is taking steps to begin enhanced training. Fuller, along with Buffalo Wild Wings President Lyle Tick and a regional manager, met Tuesday with Naperville Mayor Steve Chirico and city council member Benjamin White. “They were very forthright. They described their internal investigation and their decision to remove the employees who were removed,” Chirico said. “They apologized for the painful experience for the families as well as the image of the city.” White said the community “is taking a hit” from the fact the encounter occurred within its boundaries. “People are asking me, ‘Are we a racist town?'” White said. “I don’t want it to give a false perception of our community.”)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD IN NAPERVILLE SUN WITH COLOR PICTURE: Customers at Naperville restaurant say their group was asked to move because another customer ‘doesn’t want black people sitting near him’ – SUZANNE BAKER (DIERSEN: Of course, Trump-haters want everyone to assume that this “regular customer” is a Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and his ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— Dear millennials, now is the time to invest in your unexpected future – JERRY DAVICH (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who saved far less for their retirement than I did, I was able to do save more for my retirement because I avoided the draft, the federal government grossly overpaid me, I had good health, I paid less federal income tax by itemizing, my wife had a good job, we gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, we did not become foster parents, I did not give lots of money to churches like they did, etc.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/post-tribune/opinion/ct-ptb-davich-saving-for-retirement-while-young-st-1030-20191029-ljhsqft2drg2veqxg2zxbmmpmy-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One hundred dollars a month. This was how much money my financial adviser told me to save, back when I was in my 20s and 30s. “Damn it, Jerry, if you do this you’ll have a retirement nest egg waiting for you 30 years from now,” George Wilson told me sternly. He was one of my father’s poker buddies who once sold me a life insurance policy. He was intimidating and outspoken. He also was 100% right. Wilson tried slipping me a proverbial ace in the hole for my losing hand of cards in life. I was too stupid and shortsighted to accept it. After a few years of scraping together $100 each month to pay into this seemingly mythical retirement fund, I stopped contributing. I eventually cashed it in to pay off some credit card bills, telling myself that I couldn’t afford it any longer. It was the cheapest rationalization I could afford back then. At that point in my life, I was earning a meager income in a family food business, I had two young children, and I was already thinking of cashing in my marriage. Putting away $100 a month, every month for 30-plus years, seemed impossible. My wiser self in the future has never forgiven my stupid self from the past. In my younger days, I likely spent $100 a month on “must have” purchases – my Coca-Cola addiction, drive-through junk food, weekend entertainment in Chicago, a massive collection of music cassettes and CDs, you name it. These unnecessary expenditures, in hindsight, have only compounded my anger toward myself. I try to keep this in mind when I now hear about millennials who believe retirement savings is a myth or a rumor they’ve been told by gray-haired geezers like me. What do we know, right? In my 20s, I thought the same thing about “old man Wilson,” who was only in his 40s at the time. He seemed to be in his 70s or 80s. (He’s still around. Please don’t tell him.) Youth has a way of distorting our perception of life. We had more answers than questions. We had more time than money. We had more reasons to not think about getting older, getting unhealthy, or getting prepared for retirement. It all seemed so… impossible, or at least improbable. As if it would never happen.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Chicago teachers can save 244 unused sick days, retire early under new contract The tentative agreement raises the cap on accrued sick days from 40 to 244; some longtime teachers could use those days to retire a year early and still collect their full pension. – Matthew Hendrickson (DIERSEN: Almost all of my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government took many more sick days than I did. Starting in 1966, when I was 18 years old, they made it very clear that they did NOT want me to take any sick days. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I should NOT get that benefit for many reasons including I avoided the draft, had good health, was non-poor, had more education, professional certifications and/or licenses than they did, was Republican, was conservative, was Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), was 100% German American, my wife had a good job, we gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, we did not become foster parents, and/or my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Nevertheless, they are furious that my Civil Service Retirement System pension is higher because of my many used sick days.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— The Trump Impeachment Inquiry: Latest Updates (DIERSEN: Have you ever been “under investigation?” To get rid of me, my Democrat IRS superiors had me “under investigation” 1974-1977. SEE GAO DECISION: http://www.gao.gov/products/463866 During the 1970s, IRS purposely kept its definition of “commuting area” vague so that it could use it to punish or to reward its employees. When my IRS Democrat superiors succeeded in getting rid of the IRS manager who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974, they used a narrow definition of “commuting area” to disallow my partial day per diem claims. They hinted/implied/argued that my partial day per diem claims were fraudulent. Needless-to-say, that ended my IRS career. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, or a veteran.)

OPT OUT NAPERVILLE
— FROM THE POSTINGS: The D204 School Board has also weighed in! . . . Today School District 203, the top school district in the State of Illinois and one of the top school districts in the United States, sent a letter to Naperville’s City Council voicing strong opposition to the idea of retail stores being allowed to sell recreational marijuana in Naperville. The Board’s primary concern being the certainty that more high school age kids (and younger!) will be using marijuana if these stores are allowed to open.

— Poll: Public backs criticism of journalists, Trump’s attacks ‘appropriate’ – Paul Bedard (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have been the most critical of me and the most critical my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails since 2000. I would focus on those who falsely claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican.) 
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/poll-public-backs-criticism-of-journalists-trumps-attacks-appropriate
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the latest sign that major American media outlets are losing the public’s support, a majority believe it is appropriate for politicians to criticize reporters and hold them to the same scrutiny as those they cover. A new Rasmussen Reports survey also said most voters believe the average journalist is liberal, and few are conservative. The survey is an indictment of the media at a time when liberal outlets such as CNN and the New York Times are stepping up their attack on President Trump and congressional Republicans. The outlets are also complaining about Trump’s criticism of them and called out Trump surrogates who are using social media to point out the bias of journalists. But, said Rasmussen, voters believe that reporters are fair game for criticism. The survey analysis said 61% of likely U.S. voters think reporters at major news organizations like CNN, Fox News, and the New York Times are public figures who deserve scrutiny. Some 19% disagree. Significantly, 51% said “it is appropriate for elected officials to criticize specific reporters and news organizations,” Rasmussen reported in the survey shared with Secrets before its release. Another 39% view the criticism as a threat to freedom of the press. That is slightly higher than the 48% who said criticism from politicians was OK back in February 2017 when Trump began singling out news organizations that were attacking him. And the public continues to view journalists as liberal. The survey said 47% believe the typical reporter is more liberal than they are. Just 19% of voters believe reporters are more conservative than they are.)
