— Chicago takes center stage in women’s World Cup players’ equal pay fight From players to lawyers to high-paid executives based here, our city is figuring prominently in one of the highest-profile sports stories of the year – Lynn Sweet (DIERSEN: How has EEOC impacted you? In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. Because Firestone Stores fired me for accepting that offer, I accepted a job offer from IRS.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A source familiar with the case said the EEOC did do an investigation but didn’t resolve anything. On Feb. 5, 2019, Julianne Bowman, the director of the EEOC’s Chicago district office signed a notice giving the players the right to sue the federation — and weeks later they did.)

— Every town should ban pot in public places Legislators thought video gambling would be limited only to bars, restaurants and veteran organizations. But video gambling machines are everywhere. – Anita Bedell, Executive Director, Illinois Church Action on Alcohol and Addiction Problems
https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/7/8/20686445/marijuana-law-weed-legalization-smoke-free-illinois-act-ban-recreational-marijuana-dispensaries
(FROM THE LETTER: Illinois’ new marijuana law includes an exemption to the Smoke-Free Illinois Act ban on indoor smoking, and lets cities decide whether to allow on-site marijuana use at bars, restaurants, and cannabis smoking lounges, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Rep. Kelly Cassidy and her colleagues decided that social consumption of marijuana would be allowed, but not licensed by the state, leaving that up to local officials, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Public health and safety are concerns with on-site consumption. Legislators thought video gambling would be limited only to bars, restaurants and veteran organizations. However, video gambling machines are everywhere, except in the 125 municipalities and counties where they are banned. We could see a similar situation with marijuana unless local officials pass ordinances to ban recreational marijuana dispensaries, processing, transporting, cultivation facilities and on-site consumption of marijuana in municipalities and counties. Living near marijuana dispensaries makes youth more likely to use marijuana, according to a study by the Rand Corp. Youth who use marijuana are more likely to experience negative consequences, such as increased risk of mental and physical health problems, according to the researchers. Contact your mayor, city council and county board to ask for a ban on recreational marijuana businesses and on-site consumption. Act now to protect your family and community before it is too late.)

GOPUSA
— Ilhan Omar goes after the stoner vote (DIERSEN: The Republican Party platform opposes the sale of pot. None of the Republicans who represent DuPage County in Springfield voted for the sale of pot. In Illinois, you declare your political party affiliation with the type ballot that you cast in primary elections. If you promote the sale pot, you should cast a Libertarian Party ballot. Which politicians are going after the stoner vote in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, and in your county? I should write an article about those “Republican” politicians who are going after the stoner vote in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County. They fail/refuse to call for a ban on the sale of pot in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County.) 
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=72290
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ilhan Omar renewed her call for legalizing marijuana nationwide this week, framing federal action on the issue as a matter of economic equality. In an interview with BET, the freshman Minnesota Democrat said lawmakers should “not allow for the states to pick and choose” whether to legalize the substance. “What happens

[without full legalization]

is you will have a state where someone is publicly and professionally able to profit and the next state, someone could be sent to life for it,” Omar said. “We want to make sure that there is equality in our laws. I don’t think it is just for that kind of economy to exist within this policy.” The push to legalize marijuana has gained traction in recent years. Eleven states have adopted laws allowing marijuana for recreational purposes. Dozens more, including Minnesota, approve medicinal use in some cases. But possessing or selling the substance remains a federal offense. Omar is a cosponsor of legislation that would remove the drug from the federal list of controlled substances and expunge federal convictions for marijuana possession or use. The measure is backed by a number of Democratic presidential candidates, including Sens. Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. The proposal has so far failed to get a hearing in either chamber or attract support from Senate Republicans, whose votes would be needed to pass. A number of members of Minnesota’s congressional delegation, including fellow freshman Democrats Angie Craig and Dean Phillips, have previously expressed support for allowing states to legalize the substance. But Omar is the state’s only member pushing for lifting the prohibition on the federal level. Minnesota U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a presidential candidate, backs legalization but says “states should have the right to determine the best approach to marijuana within their borders.” The debate over legalization, including the economic impact of current policies, will return to the spotlight in Washington on Wednesday, when a congressional subcommittee holds a hearing on “racial justice and the need for reform” of marijuana laws.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Seven ideas to help Illinois stop kicking the can on state pensions
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/html-page/848701
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Laurence Msall wants Illinois to tax retirement income. What threshold does Msall want – $100,000, $75,000, $50,000, $25,000?
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/forum-ideas/consolidate-funds-and-tax-retirement-income
(FROM THE ARTICLE: To finally and decisively fix the problem, Illinois has no choice but to also eliminate unaffordable loopholes, such as its overly generous tax exemption on retirement income. Illinois is one of only three states with an income tax that exempts all retirement income from taxation. Low-income seniors in Illinois who cannot afford to stop working still pay state taxes on their income. Taxing retirement income in alignment with the federal tax code would increase equity and generate $2 billion to $3 billion annually for the state while protecting the most vulnerable seniors by exempting income under a certain threshold.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— How a Chicago Suburb Became a Center of ETFs Welcome to Wheaton, Ill., a town with a surprising connection to many of the most-important figures in the world of exchange-traded funds – Asjylyn Loder
https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-a-chicago-suburb-became-a-center-of-etfs-11562638621
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There is a gutted brick bank about an hour’s drive west of downtown Chicago that bears testament to an unusual feature of the suburb of Wheaton, Ill.: It has played an outsize role in the $6 trillion exchange-traded-fund industry. Here, longtime Wheaton residents Bruce Bond and John Southard, co-founders of the ETF powerhouse formerly known as PowerShares, are renovating new offices for their latest ETF venture, a company called Innovator. Just down the street is First Trust, the sixth-biggest ETF issuer in the U.S., with more than $76 billion in ETF assets. Not far away is Amplify ETFs, a white-label firm that has made a name for itself in niche funds. PowerShares, meanwhile, was sold in 2006 to Invesco Ltd. IVZ -1.81% , now the fourth-largest ETF issuer, with $204 billion in assets. How did Wheaton, a city of 53,000 people, become a hub of one of the fastest-growing segments of money management? Part of the story centers on Wheaton College, a Christian liberal-arts school founded by evangelical abolitionists in 1860. Often called the “Christian Harvard,” it is the alma mater of preacher Billy Graham. With roughly 2,400 undergraduates, the college also has produced, or has connections to, a surprising number of well-known ETF pioneers and innovators and their families. . .Today, the ETF industry is a palpable part of life in Wheaton. First Trust’s office south of downtown, built in 2007, is home to the city’s sixth-largest employer, and is part of the downtown revival. New restaurants and apartment complexes have opened in the past decade. The city has widened the sidewalks and made the streets more pedestrian-friendly. The town has always been well-to-do, but these days the median income is more than $95,000 a year. In the neighborhood near Wheaton College, older houses have been torn down, replaced with more luxurious homes. Of course, the ETF connection isn’t the only reason Wheaton is thriving. The greater Chicagoland area sports a sprawling financial industry, and Wheaton shares in its prosperity.)

SENTINEL SOURCE
— Vacant Keene City Council seats draw interest – Sierra Hubbard (DIERSEN: Do you live in a city? If a city council seat became vacant, what factors would discourage you from running for it? For me, factors include candidates who commit to voting against the sale of pot and against video gambling in the city. In addition, candidates who commit to promoting the traditional family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and other planks in the Illinois Republican Party and Republican Party platforms. In addition, candidates who oppose promoting dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and even worse things. When city council vacancies occur, I believe that a) the names of applicants should be immediately released, b) all information that they submit, including completed application forms, resumes, and answers to standard questions, should be immediately released, c) a thorough background investigation should be done on each applicant, and d) one or more candidate forum should be held.)
