We have spoken with the customer and apologized for the misunderstanding that occurred as a result...

    From Second City Cop, the blog of a Chicago cop: Anyone have the scoop on this? About three hours ago, a male in his twenties, apparently of middle eastern descent, walked into the lobby of 024 with a bucket full of an unknown substance stating "this is a gift for your chief". When confronted by officers, he quickly exited the building while leaving the bucket just outside the front door. Officers successfully pursued the suspect who was brought back into the station. The subject stated the bucket was full of water and was a "gift". When Lt's DH and NS...

    Taco Bell is saving its first fast-food restaurant from the wrecking ball by relocating the iconic 400-square-foot food stand from Downey to its corporate headquarters in Irvine. “This is arguably the most important restaurant in our company’s history,” said Taco Bell Chief executive Brian Niccol. “When we heard about the chance of it being demolished, we had to step in. We owe that to our fans; we owe that to Glen Bell.”

    Today I went to Mass, the first time since I heard my pastor compare Pope Francis to the prophet Amos, favorably. Today was also the day the hectoring began for "Beyond Sunday", the latest rebrand of the Archdiocesan Expansion Fund. Those of us who remember the pre-1968 Church might recall a vibrant Catholic presence in the black neighborhoods of North St. Louis. A sizable minority were Roman Catholic, attracted by the ability to send their children to Corpus Christi, Mercy, DeAndreis, Laboure, or even McBride, St. Marks or Rosati-Kain high schools, keeping them out of the street life at a...

    On a 17-acre plot adjacent to the University of Alabama were a farm, a corn crib, a stable, and a building to house the people who kept all of those things running. The building was a sprawling white structure with a library and a dance hall and rooms for the people who plowed the fields, shucked the corn, and raised the pigs. It was the first building in Tuscaloosa to have steam heating or gas lighting. It was also a hospital for the mentally ill, the first of its kind in Alabama. And from 1872 to 1881, it was the...

    Today, three Iowa politicians signed a pledge calling for “a World War II-scale mobilization” to fight climate change. Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie, State Rep. Dan Kelley, and State Senator Rob Hogg, a leading candidate for US Senate, all Democrats, signed a document calling on the US government to reduce emissions 100 percent by 2025 by “enlisting” tens of millions of Americans to work on clean energy projects—creating full employment in the process. It’s likely the most ambitious pledge to fight climate change put forward this election cycle, even if right now, it's a symbolic gesture aimed at drawing attention...

    We could begin by looking at this from the perspective of political philosophy. In the early 1790s, when our Constitutional government was in its infancy, Secretary Hamilton proposed a national bank that we definitely needed, but which was not specifically authorized by the Constitution. A decade later, President Jefferson’s delegates to France brought back an irresistible offer – to purchase a third of a continent from France for pennies an acre – which just as clearly lacked Constitutional authorization. In both instances, the opposing party said “You can’t do that without an Amendment! You’ll regret setting the precedent!” But they...

    Today the Dallas Morning News published an editorial under a headline that read in part, biker gangs earning more trust than prosecutors. Right after the May 17 motorcycle-gang shootout in Waco, the editorial squeaks, this newspapers inclination was to believe law enforcers account that the nine deaths and 22 injuries were the result of hardened criminal thugs waging a deadly turf battle. But the longer this bizarre case plays out, the more credible the bikers look, and the more it appears that McLennan County officials have something to hide.

For about an hour, they carried signs and posters in support of the movement. Several told NBC 10 News they believe the employee didn't do anything wrong. Activists also said they feel the Providence Police Union overreacted to the incident and that the phrase, "black lives matter," isn't anti-police, but pro-African American...

A controversy in the North Bend School District, with which Reedsport cooperates to get bulk pricing on food items, should not affect that program. We're a school-wide free-lunch program, said first-year Superintendent Brian Gander. That's based on our local incidence of poverty. We started that last year. Gander said the district would have 65 percent of students eligible for free and reduced lunch, if that program were still in effect. The current program...

    14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed, who made headlines last week after he was arrested for bringing a homemade clock into school, has already received praise from a number of familiar names such as Barack Obama and Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg. Now, to Mohameds further delight, tech giants Microsoft have pledged their allegiance to the whizz-kid in generous fashion. The multinational technology firm expressed their support for Ahmed, not through kind words, but by sending the young engineer a huge hamper of tech goodies, including a Cube 3D printer.

    A collective of anonymous artists plastered Los Angeles from downtown to the mid-Wilshire district with posters and stickers of Mockingjay's rebellion bird to tout Cruz' presidential candidacy.

Over the past few days, a collective of anonymous artists responsible for the "Don't Say" signs at Hillary Clintons Brooklyn headquarters and the Maxine Waters "Poverty Pimp" poster used the Mockingjay rebellion bird symbol to tout presidential candidate Cruz.

    Monday, September 14, 2015 Government workers outnumber manufacturing workers in Illinois By Michael Lucci / Illinois Policy Institute - The top-producing states of the Midwests manufacturing powerhouse are Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. But Illinois is the only one of the Great Lakes states where government workers dramatically outnumber manufacturing workers, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As of June 2015, Illinois had only 574,000 factory workers, compared with nearly 750,000 state and local government workers. That means Illinois had only 3 manufacturing workers for every 4 state and local government workers. http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2015/09/government-workers-outnumber-manufacturing-workers-in-illinois.html
