Many people just read the headlines. That's why I said "Up Front". The more significant point is not that this was a Native American family, but that he is another Mexican we brought in to work while we have high unemployment (and record low labor participation rate). Despite many being good people, many have no respect for our laws. We need to push some of the welfare people into these green…

In fact they have listed the names of the young people in the obituary section of the paper, they just don't put heroine or shotgun, or rope as the cause of death or list it specifically as a suicide... Word of mouth and social media is how we know who what when where and why... old people have killed themselves forever, we just don't list the cause of death out of deference to the family.

Let's ask President Trump what he would do. Is it just me or are there more Mexicans involved in killings now than there were? Yes, I know there are more pouring out of the ant hill south of our border, but it seems that we are getting more and more of their scum.

They used to publish in the newspaper (in an out of the way area) the results of a Coroner's Inquest Have not seen that done here in quite a while. I was also told years ago that if you use a Public entity, IE ambulance, fire department and/or police it is not confidential information but that does not mean the Media has an obligation to report..... An inquest is an inquiry held in public…

Illinois investors jump into marijuana business

Implementation of the Illinois law is still months away

From from the Associated Press:

Investors around Illinois are jockeying for positions in the marijuana business as they wait for the state's new medical marijuana law to kick in. And some of them are politically connected.

According to the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises ( http://bit.ly/TYXDPd ), Sam Borek has reserved at least three-dozen marijuana-related business names. Borek was a college roommate of the legislator who sponsored the law, Democratic state Rep. Lou Lang of Skokie.

Those companies have names like Illinois Medical Marijuana Sales Inc., Illinois Cannabis Realty Inc. and Cannabis Medical Centers of Illinois Inc.

And then there's David Rosen of Chicago. He was Gov. Pat Quinn's chief fundraiser in 2010 and also raised money for Hillary Rodham Clinton and Al Gore.

Rosen has filed paperwork to open a medical marijuana business in Nevada called Waveseer. But he's registered that business name in Illinois, too. Rosen's investors, according to state records from Nevada, include a number of Quinn donors.

But Borek says he has already run into a potential hurdle.

"We've got some checks to invest from investors and we can't deposit them," he said.

That's because banks have so far turned him down when he tried to open checking accounts. He said the banks are worried about possible penalties under federal law if they do business with marijuana growers and sellers.

He believes he might be able to remedy the problem by removing the word "marijuana" from business names.
