— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: DuPage County Board lifts 10-year ban, votes to allow video gaming in unincorporated areas – ALICIA FABBRE
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-dupage-reverses-ban-video-gaming-st-1113-20191113-fr4ar6wz4zcixeaem5yaoybxne-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Commissioner Tim Elliott, R-Glen Ellyn, said the downside is people have to lose money at the machines in order for the county to receive any money in video gambling taxes. “The revenue we would receive as a county is a fraction of what our residents would lose,” Elliot said, estimating gamers would have to lose a total of $5.5 million for the county to take in $276,000. “That’s not economic development. That is the opposite of economic development.” . . . Board member Pete DiCianni, R-Elmhurst, requested the vote be tabled so that people would have a chance to weigh in, but other commissioners countered that the item was on the agenda and the public had notice of the meeting. DiCianni, who also suggested letting voters decide if the ban should be lifted, said allowing video gambling in unincorporated areas would put more pressure on municipalities that have banned it.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191112/dupage-county-lifts-ban-on-video-gambling
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Still, six Republican board members voted against the repeal: Grant Eckhoff of Wheaton, Tim Elliott of Glen Ellyn, Pete DiCianni of Elmhurst, Sean Noonan of Elmhurst, Jim Healy of Naperville and Robert Larsen of Wheaton. Larsen said he has seen the negative impacts of gambling. And while lifting the ban will generate revenue for the county, he said, “not all revenue is good revenue.” “I don’t think it’s right for DuPage County,” he said. Elliott said he’s concerned that lifting the ban will create problems for businesses in municipalities that prohibit video gambling. “The two largest municipalities in my district — Wheaton and Glen Ellyn — have banned video gaming,” Elliott said. “What are you going to do to them when you allow video gaming in every unincorporated area that borders them?”)

WASHINGTON POST
— A library wanted a New York Times subscription. Officials refused, citing Trump and ‘fake news.’ – Antonia Noori Farzan (DIERSEN: If you were me, what would you do encourage Republican Party leaders in Illinois to encourage Republicans in Illinois to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails?) 
https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/11/05/new-york-times-citrus-county-florida-library-subscription-rejected-fake-news/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The librarians of Citrus County, Fla., had what seemed like a modest wish: A digital subscription to the New York Times. For about $2,700 annually, they reasoned, they could offer their roughly 70,000 patrons an easy way to research and catch up on the news. But when their request came before the Citrus County commission last month, local officials literally laughed out loud. One commissioner, Scott Carnahan, declared the paper to be “fake news.” “I agree with President Trump,” he said. “I will not be voting for this. I don’t want the New York Times in this county.” In a move that is generating intense online backlash, all five members of the commission agreed to reject the library’s request. The discussion took place Oct. 24, the same day the Trump administration announced plans to cancel federal agencies’ subscriptions to the Times and The Washington Post. While there’s no apparent connection — the Citrus County meeting began several hours before the Wall Street Journal broke the news of the new edict — the controversy unfolding in central Florida highlights how politicians nationwide are parroting the president’s disparaging rhetoric about the media.)

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.”)
