I know they don't give the bikes to people who don't report them missing and they'll need a serial number or other identifying marks. And the report needs to be prior to the claim it is their's.

Thanks for all the kind words. The school board did reinstate most of my stipend for this season. They still do not give any support to the program itself, but we are doing fine with grants and donations.

There's no financial support from the school? Why is that? ( My first thought was that maybe its considered a club sport instead of a sanctioned varsity sport?) Anyway... If you know of any way that they're accepting donations towards the cost of their trip, could you please post it here? Thanks.

Moody’s says Illinois Supreme Court ruling is ‘credit negative’ for state

8 months, 2 weeks ago SJ-R.com

Decision viewed as foreshadowing on case involving larger pension reform

From SJ-R.com:
Last week’s Illinois Supreme Court ruling on retiree health insurance is a credit negative for the state, Moody’s Investors Service said Friday.

The reason, Moody’s said, is the decision could foreshadow how the court will rule on the broader pension reform law the state hopes will save billions of dollars in pension costs over the coming years.

“The majority of justices expressed views that run counter to the rationale used in recent pension reform legislation for certain city and state plans,” Moody’s said. “We therefore perceive increased risk that the Illinois Supreme Court will rule the pension reform legislation unconstitutional which would jeopardize $32.7 billion of pension liability reduction.”

The court ruled last week that state-subsidized health insurance for retirees is a protected pension benefit and that the state cannot impose premiums on retirees who were promised premium-free insurance. Moody’s said the ruling shows the court has “an expansive view” of the state constitution’s pension protection clause, which says pension benefits cannot be diminished or impaired.

The pension reforms approved last year curtail annual raises in pension benefits, increase the retirement age and otherwise change benefits for current and retired workers. Attorneys for the state have argued Illinois’ precarious finances give the governor and legislature latitude to change those benefits despite the constitution.
