The Utah Coal Lockup: A trillion dollar Lippo payoff? By: Sarah Foster When the President signed the Executive Order designating 1.7 million acres of land in southwest Utah as the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, his action placed the area off limits to mineral extraction and development. The New York Times reported that the monument encloses the largest coal field in the nation, the Kaiparowitz Plateau, which contains at least 7 billion tons of coal worth over $1 TRILLION. Kentucky-based company Andalux Resources, which holds leases on 3,400 acres in the area, was planning to open a huge operation (underground, not strip mining) that would have generated 1,000 jobs, $1 million in annual revenue for Kane County, and at least $10 million a year in state and federal taxes, according to the New York Times. Folks living in the area wore black arm bands the day o the signing - but Clinton didn't see them. He chose to make his announcement in a neighboring state. WHY? Why did he do it? Why lock up $ ...

Status Update By Dan Moreno Welcome from Illinois Governor Pat Quinn Happy Latino Heritage Month 2013 and welcome to our website! Every year, we take time to reflect on the contributions made by Latinos to Illinois’ social fabric and economy. Our State is a complex, dynamic place; every resident has been enriched by Latinos, who now comprise one of every six Illinoisans. The face of Illinois Latinos has changed dramatically recently. The 2010 Census shows that for the first time, more Illinois Latinos live outside of the City of Chicago. There has been notable growth in the Latino population in places ranging from Waukegan to Kane County to rural Onarga. Illinois Latinos are attending college, buying homes and operating businesses in unprecedented numbers. There have never been as many Latinos in public office or the judiciary. Our celebration of Latino Heritage Month includes this website which will help everyone appreciate the history and importance of Illinois Latinos. Further, we will host a fascina ...

FIRE DANGER! Fire conditions in Southern Utah are very dangerous right now. The following restrictions are in place in kane County. No fire of any kind is allowed in the county except for campfires in approved pits in established campgrounds and at permanent places of habitation like a cabin. The Kane County fire officials would request that property owners voluntarily refrain from having even campfires at their cabins because conditions are so bad. Citations will be issued for unattended campfires even if they are in approved pits. Also restricted are fireworks outside of incorporated cities and towns, and smoking outside of a vehicle or building in an area with vegetation. No Tracer ammunition, and no cutting, grinding, or welding in areas of vegetation. Because of the danger, and the high costs of fighting fires, citations will be issued for violations of these restrictions. Please help Kane County's fire officials by following these restrictions. Please pass this email on to any Kane County residents ...

Out of control fires can be avoided with better management! If you are following the news, you know that, once again, Colorado is being swept by raging forest fires, as are parts of New Mexico, Oregon and California. The West is no stranger to fires, but in recent years, fires on federal lands have grown increasingly out of control as failed federal policies have built up unprecedented levels of fuel that have cost tax payers billions. I recently asked Commissioner Doug Heaton of Kane County, Utah to explain how the lack of proper management of our federal lands has affected the increase in forest fires. His insights are very helpful in understanding why the Transfer of Public Lands into state hands is The Only Solution Big Enough to properly preserve our environment for generations to come. "Under careful management, it is possible to maintain a healthy forest that remains perpetually young and vibrant. Not unlike a garden, proper management includes a harvest of that which is 'ripe'. As trees approa ...

State GOP chief could get boot for supporting *** marriage BY DAVE MCKINNEY Springfield Bureau Chief dmckinney SPRINGFIELD — Illinois State Republican Chairman Pat Bradymay be sacked Saturday for defying his party’s conservative flank in expressing support for legalizing *** marriage. But did Brady commit a more serious political sin by crossing Democratic powerhouse Michael Madigan by being the architect and lead pitchman for last year’s “Fire Madigan” campaign by the state GOP? Members of the state Republican central committee plan to convene in closed session Saturday in Tinley Park and could vote to oust Brady in a coup attempt led by state Sen. Jim Oberweis (R-Sugar Grove). Oberweis said Brady’s involvement in Republican primaries last fall, including the Kane County board chairman race, was problematic, but his *** marriage stance taken without consulting the state GOP organization was “the final straw.” “When you start publicly lobbying against a plank in our state and national pa ...
A small patch on Madison Ave is no longer Cook County. It's now Kane County!
The following news article is reprinted from the Arlington Heights Daily Herald at: Article posted: 3/4/2013 5:15 AM Some fear new, high-tech GED a problem for low-income test takers By James Fuller The people who benefit the most by earning their GED will soon have the toughest time even getting access to the high school graduation equivalency credential, according to local test providers. More than 27,000 Illinois residents took the GED exam in 2011. Nearly 16,000 of them passed all five courses in the exam. That was better than the passing rate in 2012 for Kane County, where only about half of the 1,500 residents who took the exam passed. Education experts say local and statewide numbers will surely drop come 2014 when a new, computerized version of the exam comes online. The change follows a privatization of the testing program announced in 2011.

Continental Indoor Football League: The ten-team CIFL has started its 2013 season. The league had six teams last season, but the Chicago Pythons and Indianapolis Enforcers did not return. Of the other four teams, the Port Huron Predators and Saginaw Sting returned, the Dayton Silverbacks returned as the Dayton Sharks and the Evansville Rage returned as the Owensboro (KY) Rage. The six new CIFL teams include the Erie Explosion from the 2012 Indoor Football League, the Marion (OH) Blue Racers and Kentucky Drillers (Pikeville) from the 2012 United Indoor Football League, along with the Detroit Thunder, Kane County (IL) Dawgs and the Louisville-based Kentucky Xtreme, which played a couple of CIFL exhibition games in 2013. The Cincinnati Commandos team from the 2012 UIFL joined the CIFL, but then decided to suspend operations for the 2013 season. American Indoor Football: The AIF now lists the Baltimore Mariners and a yet-to-be-named team in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (PA) as 2014 expansion teams. An indoor team ca ...

In 1838, Thomas arrived in Big Rock Township, Kane County, Illinois. He taught school from 1839 until 1840, when the school burned down. It's unknown how long he taught. Thomas William Glasspoole served as a U.S. soldier in the Seminole War in Florida (it is unknown as to whether he served during the second or third Seminole War, or both-the second Semiole War took place from 1835-1842 and the third Seminole War took place from 1855-1858. We know that it was not the first Seminole War because the first took place from 1817-1818, in which time he was still a young boy in England). On August 2, 1847, Thomas was a candidate for Justice of the Peace, Pleasant Valley Township, Jo Daviess County, Illinois. He commissioned again for Justice of the Peace on April 18, 1854. In 1860, Thomas settled in Glasspool Valley, Canton Township, Buffalo County, Wisconsin.
For those who may have missed it this past summer, here is a reprint of the article that accompanied the video of the Peoria v. Kane Co. series. It includes an interview with Player Personnel Director Oneri Flieta, one of the last he did as a member of the Cubs' organization. Cubs Down on the Farm Report – 05/11/11 By Tom U. Special Assignment – Peoria Chiefs v. Kane County Cougars Recently, I had the pleasure of being able to cover the series between the Chiefs and Kane County. It was a pleasant addition to be able to meet some of the executives from the Cubs organization. I’d like to thank Shawn Touney, Director of Public Relations for the Kane County Cougars, as well as Broadcast and Media Manager Nate Baliva of the Peoria Chiefs for their hospitality. I’d also like to mention reporters Chris Emma of Northsiders Report.com and Mike Knapp of the Beacon News, who were my companions during the series; as well as reporter Larry Peterson of the Fox Valley Labor News, and Woodrow Carroll as they all ...

Posting “5” Annual Increases in Homeowner’s Insurance Costs Am I the only one who experiences the unfounded, inexplicable double-digit rate increases with Homeowner’s Insurance? Last year, my wife and I paid $947.00. This year, they want $1,120.00. That’s an 18.27% increase in one year! My wife and I live in an all-brick home. We have had one claim (minor) in eighteen years and yet I am necessarily forced to whine about outrageous rate increases, seemingly annually. “But you have a wood burning stove in your back room and you don’t bundle an auto policy …” True, but the wood burning stove has been existent for 15 years and we haven’t had any auto policies for three years! Do insurance companies really believe that their clients are that stupid? Once I was told, “We’re all going to have to pay our share for Katrina.” But why would a family (ours) living adjacent to the highest point of land in Kane County have to help fund flood and storm damage in the Gulf states? If we boug ...
How do we make sure we get competent, fair and independent judges into our legal system? Two Kane County assistant state’s attorneys were named this week as associate judges in the 16th Judicial Circuit. Elizabeth "Betsy" Flood and Alice Tracy. They were selected by current judges. Among the many flaws with the legal system in Illinois relates to judges, including how they are selected. Associate judges are appointed while circuit judges are elected. Some say anyone working in the state's attorney's office should be PROHIBITED from being a judge unless they have at least 2 years away from the office and possible conflicts-of-interest and being "cozy" with certain judges as they push for an appointment as judge. Former prosecutors tend to choose prosecutors and that's why most of the judges in Kane County have worked as prosecutors in their career, but does that create a fair system of justice? Political contributions are also a BIG problem when mixing with the law, not just for judges. Various law f ...

Published in the Millard County Chronicle Progress Jan 2, 2013 Letter to the Editor * Dear editor, I guess I wasn't really surprise that Todd MacFarlane would come right back with another run at the sheriff and county attorney in regards to the Corey Kanosh incident. However, I was surprised that he would use the recent untimely death of Jim Slavens to continue his sublet attack on County government in a separate letter to the editor. Because of this, I'm going to respond to both of his letters in last week's Chronicle Progress. First, let me state very clearly that, in my view, Jim Slavens was a good person and good at what he did. He was a good and loving dad to all of his children and a great husband to his wife, Melanie. He was involved in many good things in his community. I have known of Todd Macfarlane for a number of years starting at the time when he did a brief stint as the Kane County Attorney. Because of the previous County Attorney's resignation, he was appointed to the office of Kane County ...
