— Critical Race Theory and the threat to Democrats – J.T. YOUNG
https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/564588-crts-threat-to-democrats
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Buried in 2020’s tumult was the inroad Donald Trump made into Democrats’ core groups. From 2016 to 2020, Trump increased his percentage of support among Blacks (4 percent), Latinos (4 percent), Asians (7 percent), Women (1 percent), and Others (5 percent). Democrats are extremely dependent on winning big majorities in these groups, each of which (with the exception of Women) are decided electoral minorities. Even with Trump’s inroads, Biden still won large margins in each: Blacks (87 percent), Latinos (65 percent), Asians (61 percent), Women (57 percent) and Others (55 percent).)

ABC7
— Wheaton parents demand face masks be mandatory in schools regardless of CDC guidelines – Sarah Schulte
https://abc7chicago.com/wheaton-il-parents-face-masks-illinois-schools/10892331/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some Wheaton Community Unit School District 200 parents are outraged the district has decided to make masks optional for the upcoming school year. “My superintendent is arrogant enough to believe that it’s ok to roll the dice with the lives of our children, and that’s unacceptable,” said Ronak Maisuria, parent. Parents are especially concerned for all the elementary students 11-years-old and younger who are not eligible for the vaccine. The district contains several elementary schools. “We all have sacrificed, we need to do our part in the last few months to continue to protect everyone until the option is available for school-aged children,” said Jill Caballero, parent. “I don’t think we’re out of the woods yet, and I think the Delta variant is a great concern to me and to my family,” said Daniel Vissers, parent. Supt. Dr. Jeff Schuler was not available for an interview but did respond with an emailed statement. It read in part, “District 200 is very cognizant of the CDC guidance and continues to prioritize student safety in our back to school planning, as we have done over the last 12 month.” As long as there are layered mitigations, Dr. Schuler said the CDC guidance does allow for local school districts to make adjustments to the mitigations.)

NBC5
— Parents Raise Concerns After Suburban School Districts Change Mask Rules. The state is leaving it up to local school districts to decide if masks are required, and that is not sitting well with some parents. – Chris Coffey
https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/parents-raise-concerns-after-suburban-school-districts-change-mask-rules/2556917/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Several dozen parents in west suburban Wheaton rallied and marched to Community Unit School District 200 headquarters Friday afternoon to demand the district continue to require masks in classrooms. The school district recently decided masks would be optional at all grade levels when the new school year begins. “It feels like they don’t care about my child’s health,” said parent Charlotte Sobota. The state is leaving it up to local school districts to decide if masks are required, and that is not sitting well with some parents. “You do not take away the preventative health measure that is most proven to work,” said parent and rally organizer Ronak Maisuria. District 200 said it is continuing mitigations such as masks on buses and physical distancing at 3 feet. The district also said it is cognizant of CDC guidance, and if local conditions suggest a need to adjust practices, “we will do that as we did all last year as plans adjusted.”)

CBS2
— ‘Not Sending My Child Back’: Parents Of Wheaton School District Upset About Mask Optional Rule – Megan Hickey
https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2021/07/16/parents-wheaton-school-district-upset-mask-optional/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This week, District 200 in Wheaton opted to make masks optional for all students, which didn’t sit well with everyone. Some parents even rallied outside the superintendent’s office Friday afternoon. The march to the Community Unit School District 200 building on Friday was prompted by a vote earlier this week to make masks optional. It’s diverging from the CDC’s recent recommendation that only students and teachers who are fully vaccinated should drop the masks. “I thought it was a no brainer at the elementary school level. I thought my daughter would be going to school in the first grade and everyone would be wearing a mask in the room.” District 200 mom Ronak Maisuria. “It’s not about my family, this is about our community,” added fellow District 200 mom Jessica Banaszek. They organized some like-minded parents who still plan to mask their children, but worry that won’t be enough to safeguard their health. “So right now I’m telling you I’m not sending my child back to school on August 23,” said Banaszek. “They have their choice, but their choice takes away the safety of everyone around them.” The topic is polarizing, to say the least.)

(DIERSEN: I should write a book about the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Organization and how they have treated Republican Precinct Committeemen in Illinois, in DuPage County, and Milton Township since 2000.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: There are also many grassroots opportunities in your local communities. The best leadership is local leadership, and Idaho has a strong network of local leaders. Each county has a Republican Central Committee that organizes, campaigns, and elects Republican candidates. Each central committee is comprised of precinct committee people, who are elected during primary elections every two years. Each voting precinct has a committee person (these are your neighbors!), so contact your local precinct committeeman and ask how you can become involved. It’s easy. You can visit idgop.org/county-parties for contacts in your community.)

— Rise in long-term unemployment risks blighting young people’s lives, experts warn. While predictions of 5 million people out of work have proved inaccurate, some of the most disadvantaged groups are not being helped. – Ben Chapman
(DIERSEN: Not wanting to be unemployed motivated me to take jobs that were bad jobs according to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes – jobs that they would never stoop to take. I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997.)

CITY OF WHEATON
— Groups Invited to Register for Independence Day Parade The Wheaton Park District’s Independence Day Parade is back! The City of Wheaton is excited to welcome back this community tradition and encourages community groups, churches and businesses to help make this the best parade yet by being a participant. The parade will be at 11 a.m. Sunday, July 4, marching down Main Street and finishing near Memorial Park. Find out more about registration on the Wheaton Park District’s website, and we will see you at the parade!
(DIERSEN: Are political organizations and candidates encouraged to have entries? It would be great if the Wheaton Park District (WPD) would publish its sponsorship policy. Are all sponsors banned, or just DuPage Republicans? Will parade entries include bagpipers and the high school bands, and if not, why not? What parade entries have come in so far? How much money does the WPD have available for paid parade entries? Is it just the $10,000 that the City of Wheaton gave the WPD for paid parade entries? What paid parade entries will be in the parade?)
