Rutherford addresses Kankakee County Lincoln Day Dinner

State Treasurer Dan Rutherford is not ashamed to say, Republicans have a problem with inclusiveness. And – he says – if the GOP is to win again in Illinois, that has to change.

Rutherford was the keynote speaker in Kankakee (Sunday) for the annual Lincoln Day Dinner.

It’s no secret, the native of Livingston County is leaning toward a run for governor in 2014. He’s avoiding any formal announcement at this time. But he says no matter who the candidate is “with hard work, we (the Republicans) can earn the right to govern Illinois again.”

Ford County Lincoln Day Dinner features Topinka

Ford County held its first Republican Lincoln Day Dinner in about 15 years last (Thur) night. And Party Chairman Tom Bennett is hoping the event will spark some interest and get more people interested in the political process.

The Lincoln Day Dinner in Gibson City featured State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka. She talked about how she’d like to see more women and more diversity in the party.

Topinka said the state’s budget problems will be difficult to fix. She told about 200 attendees “this didn’t happen overnight, and it’s not gonna be solved overnight.”

Topinka said the message is “it’s essential to elect candidates who can solve the financial problems.”

NICOR: No need to worry about gas smell

The smell of natural gas permeated the air throughout much of Iroquois County this (Mon) afternoon. But NICOR reports there’s no immediate safety concern to worry about.

The smell of gas is the result of NICOR work crews transferring the odorant into their lines. The odorant is the smell that’s added to the gas lines so that leaks are detected. During the transfer process today, some of the odorant got away from the workers and the winds carried the smell through Gilman, Crescent City, Watseka and across to Sheldon.

There is no danger to the public. Work crews are managing the situation.

County Regional planning commission will be disbanded

It’s been two years since the Iroquois County regional planning board has had a meeting and almost all of its members terms have expired. Those are a couple of reasons the board will be disbanded. The commission was formed to help with zoning issues and was supposed to meet monthly. The commission has now outlived its usefulness since its formation, because zoning issues are now initially fielded by the zoning board of appeals and there is no need for commissioners who represent different areas of the county.
