"The Dying Breed" Movie Premiere

On Saturday October 8 from 8pm-Midnight, come out and suport Champaign's own, Edward "G-Da-Man" Hicks, in his first film release debut! "The Dying Breed" is a story that deals with youth violence in the African American community, where kids killing kids is an everyday thing until someone has to make a stand. Charged up by some of the hottest Hip-Hop tracks by some of the tightest MC's of the Midwest, along with non-stop Martial Arts action, this film delivers a must see for all.

JOBS: The Real Crisis and What We Can Do About It

Unlike the phony debt crisis, the jobs crisis is real.  It did not just happen, either, but results from very specific policies over many years.  Unemployment and underemployment are much higher than the official unemployment rate, simply because so many categories of people are not counted: students, workers who are laid off after a short time on a new job, workers who are laid off seasonally or from time to time, the long-term jobless, people who have never had a job, people who are barely employed at just a few hours a week, etc.

Update in the Bill Walton Case

On Wednesday, August 3, two Urbana police officers approached "homeless" Bill Walton in the back foyer of the Urbana City Building, and asked Mr. Walton if he would come with them, pursuant to a court order issued July 22 that Walton be "medically" evaluated. Officers were ordered to drive Walton to the Danville Veteran's Hospital rather than Carle Clinic where Walton has been seen before. Walton complied without incident. On August 6, The News-Gazette's Jim Dey reported that Walton was visited by his Guardian Ad Litem, attorney Andrew Bequette, and Bequette was quoted by Dey that Bill "....doesn't want the public to know his business." (Which is the right of those being placed under permanent guardianship.) Therefore, the proceedings would be closed to the public. Ironically, the media, i.e. the almighty News-Gazette, would be allowed into the courtroom to carefully broadcast Bill's "business" county-wide.
