CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— New voter precincts in DuPage County expected to ease heavy turnout for fall election – Gary Gibula  (DIERSEN: My Milton Township Precinct 9 no longer having a polling place within its borders has discouraged voter turnout.  Nevertheless, for the March 15, 2016 primary election, with 40% Republican turnout, it had the 13th highest Republican turnout of Milton Township’s 124 precincts.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/news/ct-nvs-dupage-increasing-precincts-growth-st-0710-20160708-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Election officials say they hope the addition of new precincts in Naperville and throughout most of DuPage County will shorten wait times when voters go to the polls this fall. At the same time, the number of polling places has been reduced in a cost-cutting measure. The city of Naperville straddles Lisle and Naperville townships. Sixteen new precincts have been created in Lisle Township, bringing the total to 114. Naperville Township’s 87 voter precincts include 18 that have been newly created. Throughout DuPage County, 113 new precincts were added, bringing the total to 859 precincts.)

— Appeals court orders release of Chicago police disciplinary records – Steve Schmadeke  (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty.  Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents side with my Democrat superiors in the federal government against me.  If I sought a government office or a political office, my critics/opponents would hint/imply/argue/shout that GAO took the following disciplinary actions against me and that they approve of those actions: a) forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, b) always ranked me in the lower half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, c) never promoted me beyond GS-13, d) kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and d) forced me to take an $18,459 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.  That IRS took the following disciplinary actions against me and that they approve of those actions: a) never promoted me beyond GS-12, b) disallowed my education deductions, and c) disallowed my partial day per diem claims.  That the Post Office took the following disciplinary actions against me and that they approve of those actions: a) forced me to resign in 1969 when I was 20 years old and b) disallowed my sick leave requests.)
