CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— SEPTEMBER 28, 2016 FLASHBACK: “Todd Ricketts, a co-owner of the Cubs who is CEO of the conservative Ending Spending super PAC, was in attendance. In a shoutout to Ricketts, Trump yelled: “I want to commend the Ricketts family on their business plan and how they rebuilt the Chicago Cubs in a few short years!”  Ricketts shouted back:” It’s gonna be a great year because YOU are going to win the presidency AND THE CUBS ARE GOING TO WIN THE WORLD SERIES!”  The room erupted with applause. Trump was now on a roll.”

DAILY HERALD
— MAY 17, 2011 FLASHBACK: Gresk: Get Hubble on tax rolls
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20110517/news/705189928/
— Moving toward better balance of worker benefits, taxpayer affordability – Editorial  (DIERSEN: Do you want government to be a “model employer?”  What is your attitude toward government employees and toward government retirees?  Are/were you a government employee?  I was a federal employee for almost 30 years.  Are you a government retiree?  I have been a federal retiree for more than 19 years. Many millions have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass an employment examination, e) because they cannot pass a background investigation, f) because they cannot pass a physical examination, g) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or h) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against its employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161102/discuss/161109662/
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: The public pension crisis in Illinois is a runaway train. So when we see someone actually try to apply the brakes, we take notice. The DuPage County Forest Preserve District this week approved a sweeping series of changes to its employee pay policies that leaders predict will save the county $6 million over the next 20 years. That might not seem like a lot of money, but it’s not chump change. What it is an important step in the right direction. Just think of how this could mushroom if similar steps were taken in many of the other 6,900-plus taxing bodies in Illinois. A story today by staff writer Robert Sanchez lays out how forest preserve commissioners have decided to ratchet down an established bonus program and also put the brakes on lump-sum payouts to qualifying or retiring employees for unused sick time. “These changes will curb long-term spending, especially in the area of pension costs,” Commissioner Jeff Redick said, “and allow us to responsibly serve the taxpayers and both our current and future employees.” The district for years has handed out longevity-based bonuses to retiring or qualifying employees that averaged $15,000 to $20,000. You don’t find that in a lot of private-sector jobs. Not anymore. Nor do you find many companies that still — if ever — reimburse employees for unused sick time. The district isn’t going to take money from people already expecting it. Like companies that have eliminated their 401(k) contributions in lean times, those employees who already are in the bonus program — called a “retention incentive” program — will still get bonuses, but starting Jan. 1 they no longer will grow. Those who haven’t yet qualified for the bonus program never will. The district also is putting limits on lump-sum payments for sick days accrued after the start of next year. What is even more important is that the forest preserve district has decided to eliminate both the bonus and sick time payback from the calculation of pensions. That in itself is expected to save $4.5 million in pension liability over the next 20 years. In a time when pension payments in some cases are reaching a tipping point with operational costs for governmental bodies, it’s important to look toward ways in which the private sector has managed to stay afloat in tough financial times. Other taxing bodies should follow this example.)

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-katy-tur-florida-rally_us_581aa7b8e4b0c43e6c1e1795
(FROM THE ARTICLE: GOP nominee Donald Trump singled out NBC News reporter Katy Tur on Wednesday during a rally in Florida, continuing to taunt reporters covering his campaign. Tur has been embedded with the Trump campaign, following the candidate throughout the presidential race. Trump in the past has called out Tur publicly by name, and has referred to her as “Little Katy, third-rate journalist.” During his usual takedown of the “dishonest media” in Miami on Wednesday, Trump called out the press  – and specifically Tur – for being biased and not reporting fairly on his campaign. “We have massive crowds. They’re something happening. They’re not reporting it. Katy, you’re not reporting it, Katy.” Trump said to cheers. “But there’s something  happening, Katy. There’s something happening, Katy.” CNN host Wolf Blitzer last week asked Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway to talk to the Republican nominee about singling out reporters, especially those embedded with the campaign, citing safety concerns. “He points to them, he sort of eggs the crowd on to go after them,” Blitzer said. “There are a lot of young journalists. He shouldn’t be doing that.” Conway appeared on Blitzer’s CNN show later Wednesday and defended Trump, saying he didn’t intend to suggest that anyone be mean to Tur or to attack her. “After he did that . . . she was harassed by a lot of the people over there,” Blitzer said. “The last time we spoke, you told me you shared my concerns about the singling out of these embeds … You said you would talk to him. How did that conversation go?” “The conversation was very productive and I’ve also talked to NBC News today,” Conway said. “Look, we want fair coverage and we wan’t everybody to be safe at our rallies. I don’t appreciate a lot of the threats I get either from people who I guess are worried that we may actually win this thing.” After Trump taunted Tur, other journalists tweeted #ImWithTur in support of the NBC News reporter. Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims – 1.6 billion members of an entire religion – from entering the U.S.)
