Add your favorite Kankakee County locations for the County’s new trash dump idea. To edit, just click on Larger View and enjoy.
So, just mulling things over here. Let’s consider some of the ideas floating around the County.
You know, like about Chairman Michael Bossert and State’s Attorney Jamie Boyd’s secret trash dump deal and secret location and all the secret months of doing the deal behind the backs of citizens and maybe paying the consultant, James D. Burnham.
Unless, Mr. Burnham secretly agreed to work for nothing, find a dump investor, and wait for his $40,000-$60,000 for 2 – 3 months work, which he might have to give back because he’s educated and when he says, “I didn’t know the requirements about siting a landfill and don’t know anything about water-sheds”, well, that’s his job, isn’t it? So he’ll be toast, won’t he?
That    is,    of    course, only if it’s  a   crime  to  keep

Small Town
When you do not stand up
when government and power
retaliate to shut you up,
when you cower under cover,
never speaking up,
you become the attacker,
you give government power
to attack another and another.
You are attacked because
the person before you cowered.
The next is attacked because of you.
So on your feet!
Do not whisper,
do not hide pretending
you do not see,
speak out, loud, here, now,
like you live in America,
before it’s gone.

Nelson Mandala image from Care2 make a difference
Nelson Mandela is a world leader and example of peace and justice.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner fought apartheid and campaigned against the racist policies of the South African government despite strong opposition. No matter how many times he was discouraged from his mission or jailed for political offenses, Mandela never gave up his fight for justice.
Mandela wasn't afraid to speak his mind and stand up for what he believed. In his efforts, he has changed the world for the better. And his passionate conviction has inspired many others to do the same.
For today's Daily Action, pledge to do what you can in your own life to promote tolerance and justice. Visit Care2 make a difference

Most street-wise people know not to be a victim of crime. Never flash a large roll of cash or open a very full wallet in plain site. Avoid bragging about your Mercedes out in the lot. Avoid certain neighborhoods at all times. Avoid others at peak crime hours. Don’t pick fights in bars. Carry a real police whistle. Carry pepper spray.
These hints aren’t anything new. Criminals needn’t be the brightest bulbs in the lamp to victimize people successfully. Following the hints buys you an edge.
Protecting yourself is frequently straight-forward. Protecting property may be a tad more complex. But, again, basic cautions are simple, particularly when protecting, say, your house.
