GENERAL, Day after TGing

Democratic Committeeman Eugene Moore appears to be leaning toward endorsing Tom Dart to replace Michael Sheehan as Cook County Sheriff. See Chicago Tribune (Mickey Ciokajlo and Gary Washburn, with John Chase contributing). The Cook County Sheriff's Department needs an outsider to clean out the corruption and waste.

District 209 paid Danielle Ashley $30,509.61 for work done during August, 2002 and $11,958.69 for September, 2002. How much does a public high school district normally pay for PR in a month?

The federal government has sacrificed fairness in how public schools subsidize private school special ed students in favor of simplicity. See Oak Leaves (Chris LaFortune).

One of the things Dan Haley and Ken Trainor didn't like about how I wrote news articles was that I wrote them too much like minutes. I included too many different points instead of writing an article that developed one or two main points. Compare what I wrote about last Monday's District 209 meeting and Forest Park Review (Seth Stern). Is there anything I included in my coverage that FPR skipped that was important?

The turkey story doesn't have a happy ending. The man rescued died. See ABC7.

It was a bad week for trains. Tuesday a train with hazardous material derailed in Forest Park and Wednesday a commuter train hit a number of vehicles in Elmwood Park. See Chicago Tribune (Brett McNeil and Angela Rozas).

    But I don't want to get another frantic phone call while I'm traveling about inappropriate comments.
