— A look at where some of those protesting, commune-living ‘hippies’ are today – Jean Murphy (DIERSEN: What were you doing in 1967? I was a full-time student at UIC and a part-time mailman for the Park Forest Post Office. I lived with my parents and brother in Crete. I sold my 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint and bought a 1968 Oldsmobile 442. I saved money for college expenses.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Nostalgia reigns supreme this summer as we approach a series of 50th anniversaries of pivotal moments in our history. This summer San Francisco is commemorating the Summer of Love when the hippies arrived in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood in 1967. Closer to home the latest version of the Grateful Dead, known as Dead & Company, has concerts scheduled at Wrigley Field on June 30 and July 1, and Navy Pier is hosting “Exhibitionism,” an exhibit of Rolling Stones memorabilia, through July 30. Next year and the years that follow will surely generate remembrances of such major events as the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Chicago’s 1968 Democratic National Convention, Woodstock and the shootings at Kent State, to name a few. So what has happened to all of the people who were activists and hippies in those days? How have they lived their lives since those tumultuous years?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Two local state senators — Sue Rezin, R-Morris, and Jason Barickman, R-Bloomington — voted against the measure. But in the House, state Reps. Jerry Long, R-Streator, David Welter, R-Morris, and Tom Demmer, R-Dixon, supported the legislation. Only five other Senators joined Barickman and Rezin in voting no — Republicans Chapin Rose, Neil Anderson, Michael Connelly, Dale Fowler and Chris Nybo also opposed. HB 607 cleared the Senate 43-7-1, and the House vote was 75-34-3, so it’s fair to say there was bipartisan support. But still, as our readership area is represented almost entirely by Republicans, it’s interesting to note when the votes diverge.)
