ABC7
— WHEATON WOMAN NAMED CAREGIVER OF THE YEAR  (DIERSEN: I want to again thank Jim Flickinger for convincing Randy Hultgren and Peter Roskam to endorse me when I first ran for DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 Republican Committeeman in 2000.)
http://abc7chicago.com/health/wheaton-woman-named-caregiver-of-the-year/1486823/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Wheaton woman is chosen among thousands as Brightstar Care’s Caregiver of the Year in the Midwest region. Elsa Salguero was surprised today by the home care agency and the family she works with. The family who nominated her says Salguero’s devotion to her patients is unequaled. “My ultimate goal every time I encounter my patients and clients is to always leave them better than what they are when you first encounter them. Walk out of the room knowing that you’ve done everything that you possibly could to leave them feeling loved and important,” she said.  Salguero was awarded a trophy, a cake and a sash.)

 

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: University of Chicago Dean’s letter prompts backlash – Angie Leventis Lourgos  (DIERSEN: One would expect that the backlash would come from those who are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)

— Naperville Sun Q&A: Abdul-Jabbar urges Americans to approach issues using facts, not emotions – David Sharos  (DIERSEN: What demographic facts about you would Abdul-Jabbar use to form his opinion of you?  From what I see, Abdul-Jabbar would use the following demographic facts about me to form an extremely negative opinion about me: baptized in 1948, raised, and confirmed in 1962 as a Missouri Synod Lutheran; conservative; Republican; American; White; male; old (67); non-poor; gun owner; Wheaton resident since 1978; Crete resident 1948-1972; 100% German national origin; and ancestors have been in America since the 1840s.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-abdul-jabbar-q-and-a-st-0828-20160826-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Q: Why do you think race has become such a source of conflict in this country that hasn’t been seen since Martin Luther King and the 1960s? A: It has ramped up, and it has to do with people noticing change — the complexion of America is getting a little bit more brown. It’s not like white people are getting outproduced or soon be a minority, but there’s a lot more people of color, and a lot of these people are in positions of power and influence, and it doesn’t look like it did in the ’40s and ’50s. The greater number of people of color is adding to the racial tension. Q: You’ve had a chance to talk with Donald Trump. What’s your take on him? A: I met him, which he doesn’t even acknowledge. I met him twice. My take on him is that he’s trying to exploit fear for votes. I think that’s reprehensible on his part.)

 

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: Lisle teachers raises likely to be OK’d – Robert Sanchez (DIERSEN: Who hints/implies/argues/shouts that you are/were overpaid?  To discredit me, to promote envy against me, and to promote hatred against me, virtually all my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout a) that the Post Office overpaid me 1966-1969, b) that IRS overpaid me 1971-1980, c) that GAO overpaid me 1980-1997, d) that my Civil Service Retirement System pension since 1997 has been too generous, d) and that my federal health, dental, and vision insurance subsidies and other federal benefits have always been too generous. It would be great if my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) would get together and put their charges against me in writing, b) give me sufficient time to prepare my rebuttal, and c) agree to publicly debate me in the Wheaton Bowl Banquet Hall or in one of their larger “safe place” type venues.  Should I ask my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes to put in writing a) their top ten reasons why they are/were not a federal employee or federal retiree, b) the sources and amounts of all their income for the last ten years, c) their assets, liabilities, and net worth, and d) the top ten reasons why they do not have more income and a higher net worth than they have now?)

PEORIA PUBLIC RADIO
— BEYOND DISGUSTING, BEYOND TRAGIC: Video (GAMBLING) Reaches New Heights In Illinois – JENNA DOOLEY
http://peoriapublicradio.org/post/video-gaming-reaches-new-heights-illinois#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Anita Bedell is with the Illinois Church Action on Alcohol and Addiction Problems. “There has been embezzlement. There’s been bankruptcy, divorce, and crime – all of the results of video gambling,” Bedell says, “and that will just continue to grow.” Notice that she calls it video gambling instead of video gaming. The distinction is important because her group also monitors the state gaming numbers, but she focuses her attention on how much money players have lost. Bedell’s group tallies the top ten communities by dollars lost by players. Since 2012, they include Springfield, Rockford, Decatur, Bloomington, Champaign, and Peoria. Bedell says her group will continue to educate communities which want to add or expand video gaming.)

That was 71% greater than the median $10.8 million hauled in by S&P 500 executives in all industries in 2015, according to an analysis by Equilar. “We all know drug prices are high,” says Eleanor Bloxham, CEO of compensation analysis firm The Value Alliance. “Companies award (the CEOs) very generous packages.” Health care CEOs received the highest median pay packages of any of the 10 sectors, according to the Equilar analysis.)
