CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Deerfield officials are open to allowing recreational marijuana sales, but in what form? – STEVE SADIN (DIERSEN: For a municipality or a county to allow the sale of recreational pot is to flush its “family friendly” status down the toilet. Each and every Illinois resident should urge their municipality and their county by email and at municipal and county meetings to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot ASAP. Each and every Naperville resident should urge Naperville’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.naperville.il.us/government/meet-your-city-council/) and at City Council meetings (the next one is Tuesday, July 16) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Naperville ASAP. Similarly, each and every Wheaton resident should urge Wheaton’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.wheaton.il.us/544/City-Council) and at City Council meetings (the next one is Monday, July 15) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton ASAP. Similarly, each and every DuPage County resident should urge DuPage County’s Chairman and each of its board members by email (https://dupageco.org/CountyBoard/CountyBoardListing.aspx) and at board meetings (the next one is Tuesday, July 16) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in unincorporated DuPage County ASAP.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Intraparty GOP criticism is a headache for leader Durkin His super-minority caucus is fractured into at least two even smaller camps – Rich Miller 
https://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/2019/7/12/20692380/jim-durkin-intraparty-gop-criticism-springfield
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For the second time this year, House Republican Leader Jim Durkin has stripped one of his member’s access to a House communications staffer. Rep. Chris Miller, R-Oakland, is the most recent to lose his state-funded communications staff member. Earlier this year, Rep. Dave McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, lost his comms staffer for criticizing fellow Republican Rep. Steve Reick for allegedly making “racist” comments and calling on House GOP Leader Jim Durkin to resign for being a “fake Republican” and “corrupt insider.” McSweeney, who wants to run statewide in 2022, said he paid for his own communications staffer, so he wasn’t concerned. The problems with Miller (no relation) started coming to a head last month when his Facebook page displayed an Americans for Prosperity Illinois post calling on readers to “Keep Rep. Brady accountable for raising the gas tax.” The post featured a photo of Rep. Dan Brady, a Deputy House Republican Leader. Rep. Miller claimed later that his Facebook account had been hacked. “Thanks for the heads up,” he told me after denying he’d made the post. I was dubious of the explanation, to say the least. And the attacks on his fellow Republicans continued. Earlier this month, he wrote on Facebook “Republicans don’t vote for tax hikes,” and called the GOP members who voted to raise the Motor Fuel Tax “Republicans in name only.”)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD IN NAPERVILLE SUN: BEYOND DISGUSTING, BEYOND TRAGIC: 2 companies are requesting approval to sell recreational cannabis in Naperville as city council prepares to discuss restrictions – ERIN HEGARTY (DIERSEN: For a municipality to allow the sale of recreational pot is to flush its “family friendly” status down the toilet. Each and every Naperville resident should urge Naperville’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.naperville.il.us/government/meet-your-city-council/) and at City Council meetings (the next one is Tuesday, July 16) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Naperville ASAP. Similarly, each and every Wheaton resident should urge Wheaton’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.wheaton.il.us/544/City-Council) and at City Council meetings (the next one is Monday, July 15) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton ASAP.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-recreational-pot-naperville-council-st-20190711-7v5pfadyynaqpb47nc4ou4fvue-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Before the requests from Green Thumb Industries and Grassroots Cannabis can be considered, however, the Naperville City Council must decide if they will allow pot to be sold within city limits and, if yes, what kind of restrictions should be in place and what kind of tax should be charged. The discussion will start at Tuesday’s council meeting. . .While municipal officials cannot restrict the consumption of cannabis in their towns, they can opt out of allowing adult-use cannabis dispensaries or place restrictions on such things as the number allowed and where they can be located, according to city documents. The new law allows only companies with existing medical marijuana dispensaries to begin selling recreational pot Jan. 1. Those companies will be allowed to sell cannabis from their current medical locations and one additional retail location, if approved by the municipality. There are currently 55 medical cannabis dispensaries in Illinois. Future dispensary licenses are expected to be issued by the state to non-medical license holders beginning in mid-2020. Should city council members approve the sale of recreational cannabis, Naperville officials would have to amend zoning code. The city can change its existing medical cannabis ordinance so it applies to adult-use cannabis dispensaries, city documents said. The ordinance as currently written includes language on where dispensaries are permitted and how far they must be from schools and residential areas.)

Since 1984, I have spent many hundreds of hours and many thousands of dollars to stop basement flooding including a) connecting all nine of the home’s downspouts directly to Wheaton’s storm sewer system, b) always having a battery backup sump pump, c) properly connecting subterranean drainage tile lines from homes on west side of Golf Lane and the north side of Frazier Court to Wheaton’s storm sewer system, d) installing many storm sewer inlets lengthy French drains, e) patching many lengthy cracks in the basement floor, f) converting to an overhead sewer, and g) having a whole house natural-gas-fired electric generator installed.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Your GOPUSA Illinois Editor Dave Diersen will urge the Wheaton City Council at its meeting Monday, July 1, 2019, at 7 P.M. to make Wheaton the first municipality in Illinois to ban the sale of pot. Municipalities and counties that do not ban the sale of pot shout that they are NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY. Your mayor and your city council members and your county board chairman and your county board members should ASAP call for a vote on the sale of pot and ASAP announce that they will vote against the sale of pot. I urge Wheaton Mayor Phil Suess and Wheaton City Council members Michael Barbier, Erica Bray-Parker, Suzanne Fitch, John K. Rutledge, and Todd Scalzo and the new North District Council member (soon to be Christopher J. Zaruba) to a) call for a vote on the sale of pot in Wheaton ASAP and b) vote NO on the sale of pot in Wheaton. I urge DuPage County Chairman Dan Cronin and DuPage County Board members Donald Puchalski, Ashley Selmon, Sam Tornatore, Elizabeth Chaplin, Peter “Pete” DiCianni, Sean Noonan, Greg Hart, Brian Krajewski, Julie Renehan, Grant Eckhoff, Tim Elliott, Mary FitzGerald Ozog, Sadia Covert, Dawn DeSart, James Healy, Robert Larsen, Sheila Rutledge, and James Zay to a) call for a vote on the sale of pot in unincorporated DuPage County ASAP and b) vote NO on the sale of pot in unincorporated DuPage County. – Dave Diersen
