Chief Deputy Scott Koster says the Sheriff's Office is publicly responding because they "will no longer allow our silence to be perceived as an acceptance that allegations are true, or have merit."
Thursday, February 28
Chris Johnson’s opinion letter raises an appropriate question as to why the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office has taken such a strong public position against allegations in the recent lawsuit filed by Jason Thurmond, which is a departure from past practice. Previously, Sheriff Randall has declined to comment on pending litigation for a combination of reasons. Some legal settlements simply prohibit any comment whatsoever. In cases filed by former employees, the Sheriff’s Office has tried to respect those individuals by not making the misconduct that resulted in their termination a part of the public discussion. The Sheriff’s Office never makes inflammatory comments on matters in which there are pending criminal charges, out of a desire to …

Rep. Randy Hultgren said president's economic policies are bad for the country. Compares his policies with fiscal state of Illinois.
Rep. Randy Hultgren said people only need to look at the fiscal state of Illinois to see where the fiscal policies of President Barack Obama will lead the country. “The bottom line is we have seen in Illinois exactly what the outcome of the Obama era policies are. We’ve seen first-hand as the state has increased taxes, increased spending…. And lost jobs. The state continues to come apart at the seams. That’s what will happen at the Federal level too as a result of the president’s policies. We know this. We’ve seen it before first hand in our state. And if you keep doing what you’re doing, you’re going to keep getting what you’ve already got,” Hultgren said in a press release. During his annual State of the Union address to the nation, …

Storm could cause issues with morning commute.
Watch those roads in the morning. The National Weather Service said a winter storm is expected to bring a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow to the area late tonight and into the morning. By late morning all precipitation north of I-88 should be snow, the NWS said. The storm could bring up to three inches of snow to the area. UPDATE: The NWS has amended its forecast to lessen the prediction of snow accumulation. At 6:15 p.m. the service said the morning commute may be hazardous due to precipitation, but heavier snowfall would be closer to the Wisconsin border. Drivers are urged to use caution during the morning commute. Patch will update this story as the forecast warrants.
