Most federal employees won’t get paychecks during the federal government shutdown that began Tuesday. Congressmen are among the exceptions. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, who represents Lee County, won’t accept his paycheck until the government is funded again, his spokesman said Tuesday. Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline, whose district includes

THREE CHEERS FOR DIXON YOUTH SOCCER
Number of certified instructors on the rise
Demmer planning to seek second House term
Classes could start as early as this month
Freshman says priority is controlling spending
BY DAVID GIULIANI firstname.lastname@example.org 800-798-4085, ext. 525
DIXON – A week ago, just one person in the Sauk Valley was a certified concealed-carry instructor. That number has since increased to 15. Charlie Thomas of Dixon is among them. He plans to teach classes for the concealed carry of weapons at the local VFW post. He signed up after state Rep. Tom Demmer, R-Dixon, informed the public about the state police’s process for issuing permits allowing concealed carry. “I didn’t realize they were doing it right away,” said Thomas, who is an Army retiree. He said he had nearly 50 names of people who want to take his course – about a quarter of whom are women. “The state police are moving as quickly as they can,” he said. “Once we get the rest of the story from the state police, we can start setting dates and putting the word out.” Eddie Branch, who works at Rigler’s Shooting & Sports Supply in Rock Falls, hopes to start offering classes before the end of the month. He is conducting the classes along with Howard Melchi, John Anzelmo, and Dakota Hagerman. Melchi and Anzelmo have applied for permits, but are not yet approved, Branch said. “We have to get insurance. You can’t just be an instructor and do these classes and not have insurance. You have a high risk of liability. We hope everything falls in place this month,” Branch said. Last week, the state police’s list of certified instructors consisted of 54 people, most of whom were from the Chicago area.

DIXON – At age 27 and in his first year in the Legislature, state Rep. Tom Demmer confirmed on Tuesday what was largely expected: He plans to run for a second term in 2014. Recently, the Dixon Republican told the Lee County Board that as a freshman in a “very Rep. Tom minority” party, Demmer he gets much of his information about state politics from the media. At the same time, Demmer has shown understanding with the Democratic-controlled Legislature. For instance, he said this week that while he is hopeful a conference committee can find a pension reform compromise, he is realistic about the “significant challenges” it faces. “We’ve been debating pension reform proposals for months, if not years,” Demmer said in an update to constituents. “Honest disagreements stem from honest differences in beliefs and policies. The gridlock isn’t because we’ve ignored reform; it’s because reform isn’t easy.” On Tuesday, he sent out a news release on his plan to run for a second 2-year term representing the 90th district, which is largely Republican. In 2012, Demmer won the general election with 62 percent of the vote. His Democratic opponent, Thomas Boken Jr., of DeKalb, got most of his support in DeKalb County.

Transparency, job creation top goals DEMMER
CONTINUED FROM A1
Boken said Tuesday he would not be running for any office in 2014. The 90th district includes parts of Lee, Ogle, DeKalb and LaSalle counties. In his news release, Demmer said he had held town hall meetings across the district. â€œMy priorities are controlling government spending, promoting transparency, and supporting job creation across Illinois,â€? he said. He said he was the chief House sponsor of bills
that were signed into law that strengthened protection against uninsured drivers and established a review of security for schools. â€œAs the state of Illinois faces serious issues, I know we wonâ€™t all agree on every proposed solution,â€? Demmer said in the news release. â€œBut Iâ€™ll always listen to new opinions and explain the reasons for my votes.â€? Over the weekend, Rep. Donald Moffitt, R-Gilson, whose 74th district includes southwestern Lee County, announced that he would run for his 12th term.
Bustos: End political grandstanding REFUSES
CONTINUED FROM A1
The majority House Republicans passed a budget that would delay by a year the individual mandate under President Barack Obamaâ€™s Affordable Care Act, which requires everyone to get health insurance or pay a fine. That law went into effect Tuesday. Obama and the Dem-
ocratic Senate have refused to go along. With no agreement by Monday, the government shut down Tuesday, the first day of the fiscal year. â€œ[Kinzinger] was never in favor of a government shutdown,â€? his spokesman, Zach Hunter, said. â€œNow that we are in this situation, letâ€™s make the best of it and tackle the tough problems.â€? Both sides are talking
with each other about how they can resolve their disagreements, Hunter said. â€œItâ€™s a chance to have an adult conversation,â€? he said. In her news conference, Bustos, a freshman lawmaker, urged her colleagues to â€œdrop their political grandstanding.â€? â€œWe do have reasonable lawmakers on both sides of the aisle,â€? she said. In July, Bustos joined 21
other Democrats in voting to delay the individual mandate by a year. Asked whether she could be described as a strong supporter of the Affordable Care Act, Bustos wouldnâ€™t say yes or no. â€œIt passed before I was out here. The Supreme Court has upheld it,â€? Bustos said. â€œI believe in doing [the Affordable Care Act] right, not doing it fast.â€?
Monuments could be closed during visit HAPPENING
CONTINUED FROM A1
â€œSo many of these men [many of them older than 80 years old] have waited so long for this day, that we donâ€™t feel it would be fair to make them wait any longer,â€? Morrison added. An Honor Flight from the Mississippi Gulf Coast region made headlines Tuesday when its members were initially fenced off from the World War II Memorial. The gates were eventually opened in an informal arrangement, and the veterans were allowed to see the memorials erected in their honor. Barriers will close off the World War II, Korean and Vietnam memorials during the shutdown, Morrison said. The Honor Flight of the Quad Cities organization is communicating with
World War II Veteran George Bloss, from Gulfport, Miss., looks out over the National World War II Memorial in Washington on Tuesday. Veterans who had traveled from across the country were allowed to visit the memorial after it had been closed because of the partial government shutdown. Some uncertainty remains about which monuments will be open to Thursdayâ€™s Honor Flight of the Quad Cities. U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, to determine which monuments in the itinerary are accessible. That task has been difficult, said Jeff Giertz, a
spokesman for Braleyâ€™s office. â€œNational Park Service employees who oversee these memorials already have started furloughs,â€?
Giertz said. â€œWeâ€™re working to get answers.â€? As for whether veterans leaving from the Quad Cities will be allowed to sidestep barriers, Giertz would not say for sure. â€œMy understanding is that the park police did not stop them, and that was an inspiring moment,â€? Giertz said. â€œThere wasnâ€™t a formal arrangement made. I wonâ€™t comment on if an informal arrangement can be made.â€? With that said, the bus drivers in Washington and the Honor Flight organizers are prepared to make any last-minute additions or changes, Morrison said. Memorials for Iwo Jima, the Unknown Soldier and the Air Force should be open, he said. â€œWe should be able to do just about everything, and if we have to add something, we can,â€? Morrison said. â€œWeâ€™ll be fine, and it will be another great, successful trip.â€?

IXON â€“ The city is in a unique situation. Not long after news broke last week that the city of Dixon had accepted an out-of-court settlement for $40 million from its auditors and a bank for its responsibility in the Rita Crundwell theft, I started asking if any other cities in Illinois or in the United States have ever had anything similar happen. By Dec. 1, the city is expected to receive the $40 million payment with $10.3 million going toward legal fees. A public meeting will be scheduled this month to present options and discuss strategies for using the money. I asked Larry Frang, executive director at the Illinois Municipal League, personnel at the National League of Cities, and professors at Northern Illinois University, and they all said the same thing: â€œNever heard of anything quite like that.â€? A Google search showed nothing similar, either. I wanted to give context, find out what other cities have done in a comparable situation, and present it. What I seemingly found: Dixon is in a one-of-akind situation and will get to set the example for any other city that finds itself in this situation. Also, letâ€™s pause for a moment. This money isnâ€™t a bonus. Crundwellâ€™s theft of nearly $54 million left its fair share of debt and neglected city projects.
ical satire there worth noting. For instance, it will not be constructive if residents attending the upcoming city meeting get caught up in the money, or any one idea of what the money can do. The mayor, some commissioners and the finance director have already said they want to take their time to make decisions and be responsible with the money. Letâ€™s be sure to be watchdogs and make certain they do so.
