City of Springfield gives up
on Obama/Biden bill

State Journal-Register (IL), by Deana Stroisch

Original Article

Posted By:Fosterdad, 10/24/2012 8:59:39 AM

Springfield’s budget director says the city is out of options to be reimbursed for expenses associated with hosting then-Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign stop in the fall of 2008. “Short of suing the campaign, which isn’t really going to do anything — it would drag on forever — there’s really nothing we can do,” said Bill McCarty. “We’ve tried.” Obama introduced his running mate, Joe Biden, at the Old State Capitol in August 2008. About 160 police officers and nine civilians helped provide protection for Obama’s visit, according to an invoice from the city.

The chances of grandchildren are slim to none for Obama. He would not want to burden his two girls with kids, remember? May his family tree end with his kids. Many muslim families are centuries old and may his end without any honor or dignity. In my opinion, that would be a fitting solution to his actions and beliefs. His bloodline would just end and the gene pool would no longer contain any contribution from his line.

Send the bill to Michael Madigan since he controls the purse strings of Illinois anyway!

Maybe the campaign can send them some "Lean Forward, were not done with you yet" bumper stickers.

and if the Leader's IL campaign office were to contact Springfield for a ''last minute'' get out the vote rally, you know the city fathers would all grab their ankles. This is cover for consumption by Springfield citizens. Nothing more.

See folks - we tried to get your money back but no one will listen to us. okay. fine...

It appears a repeat is happening in 2012 after the Dem convention. A huge bill is outstanding. Good luck taxpayers. If you voted for him in 2008 and repeat the same in 2012-----well...........

Fertility doctors aim to
lower rate of twin births
Associated Press, by Marilynn Marchione    Original Article
Posted By: Fosterdad- 12/2/2013 1:42:44 PM     Post Reply
Boston — Doctors are reporting an epidemic — of twins. Nearly half of all babies born with advanced fertility help are multiple births, new federal numbers show. In the five years since the "Octomom" case, big multiple births have gone way down but the twin rate has barely budged. Twins aren´t always twice as nice; they have much higher risks of prematurity and serious health problems. Now fertility experts are pushing a new goal: One. A growing number of couples are attempting pregnancy with just a single embryo, helped by new ways to pick the ones most likely to succeed.

£30,000 gone now taxpayers are to
fork out more in row over in
king Richard III´s grave
Express (UK), by Matt Gibson    Original Article
Posted By: Fosterdad- 11/23/2013 11:43:27 PM     Post Reply
The row over where to bury Richard III has cost the taxpayer nearly £30,000 so far and the bill is set to rise. The Government’s decision to inter the king in Leicester cathedral has been challenged in the High Court by the Plantagenet Alliance, formed by a distant relative of Richard. Even if the alliance loses its battle to have Richard buried in York, the taxpayer will still have to foot all the Government’s legal bills because Mr Justice Haddon-Cave has granted the group a protective costs order. Those costs are set to rise when the case returns to court

Manchester, IL -- Authorities are investigating the slayings of five people whose bodies were found in a housing complex in the tiny Scott County community of Manchester. A 6-year-old girl in the home was injured. A man, who got into a shootout with police during a brief car chase, also is dead, Illinois State Police announced at a brief news conference in Manchester, 50 miles west of Springfield, late this morning. The victims were found early Wednesday morning after a 6-year-old girl in the home called 911 about 4:30 a.m., said Illinois State Police Lt. Col. Todd Kilby.

´Filthy 13´ leader, model for ´Dirty Dozen,´
dies in Chatham
State Journal-Register [Springfield, IL], by Dave Bakke    Original Article

Springfield, IL - Jake McNiece was gone before we even knew he was here. His name might not resonate with you. It didn’t with me until I heard that he had died. After that, it didn’t take long to learn Jake’s story. It’s worth learning. In a nutshell, he was the real-life model for Lee Marvin’s character in the 1967 movie “The Dirty Dozen.” Jake, 93, died in Chatham on Monday.(Snip) The actual group of WWII soldiers the movie is based on was called The Filthy Thirteen. They were rounders — not murderers and psychopaths, as Hollywood portrayed them, but brawlers and no respecters of authority.

Governor Quinn terminates
AFSCME contract
State Journal-Register (IL), by Doug Finke    Original Article
Posted By: Fosterdad- 11/21/2012 8:31:51 AM     Post Reply
Gov. Pat Quinn Tuesday terminated the state’s contract covering members of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union. Calling the move unprecedented in the 40-year history of state employee labor contracts, AFSCME issued a statement saying the termination has “little immediate practical effect, as all existing terms and conditions of employment remain in place under state law.”

Local man unites brownies and bacon

If you visit Qik-n-EZ stores in Springfield, Lincoln, Pana, Shelbyville or Bloomington, you’ll see Clay Evers’ heart and soul perched near the cash register. That would be his Bacon Brownie, an individually wrapped square of fudgy goodness studded with three strips of chopped applewood-smoked bacon and sprinkled with sea salt. It sells for $2.49. “I call it a Ford truck. It’s made for the working man,” said Evers, 43, a former lobbyist, video producer and pig farmer. His family has farmed in Greenview for five generations.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

The Folly Of The Bundy Ranch Rebellion

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
