Stark— We are being exposed to acts of needless violence every.
Violence—a way of life? There is a notion that violence against women is abnormal. W h y is violence directed against women? But according to Laura Shapiro in her article "Violence: The Woman are both perceived as and taught to be victims. Most Obscene Fantasy," attacks on women are as certain in American life as death and taxes—more certain than taxes, since Crimes against women are a natural outgrowth of every- some people manage not to pay. In the climate of anti-female thing in our society that contributes to the exploitation, deg- violence that hangs over our lives, all women pay.
It is amazing that current statistics are not easily available on 2. Is violence against women increasing? About five years ago wifebeating was I am not sure that violence against women is increasing. It estimated by the FBI to be the most frequently occurring crime in the country. It was reported that 45 percent of all women in a is known that a greater number of women are reporting Hartford, Conn.

In the sacred hierarchy of defensible rights, a woman's instance, is an activist organization working to stop the gra- physical freedom ranks low, and the preservation of her self- tuitous use of images of physical and sexual violence against respect has no place at all, Shapiro said.

Shapiro, too, said there is at least one way to build up one's "We consider education and involvement to be the most sense of personal strength and to actively resist the invitations to important things any group of people can do to further our victimization that surround women—and that is to learn self- cause, and ultimately the cause of all women.

Only then can violence between people be minimized and trust and nurtrance have a change to thrive.

But we don't have to take Wendy was original and self-sufficient, she worked hard such action with matter-of-fact attitudes.
We have to feel like we can walk home from work. She worked hard for her family and loved them deeply. She could turn my sorrow to joy, my hardships to laughter; I won't be listing safety precautions for walking alone at she did the same for all her friends. However, a good corporation It would have taken Wendy two lifetimes to accomplish should always be on the lookout for improvements. After you feel good about what you have done to She was a survivor and a go-getter, nothing could get secure yourself, your home, etc. Goodness knows, someone has to continue to ask why She was extraordinarily energetic, bubbly and bright.
Her sense of humor was side-splitting and her attitude always positive. Wendy would laugh at her own faults and mistakes but would let no other person do the same to themselves. She was loyal and intelligent and a beautiful young woman. We'll always remember her sweet smile, cute giggle, and all the wonderful times we shared with her. In our eyes, Wendy lived for those she loved and spread happiness everywhere she ventured. Wendy was life's melody, and for those of us fortunate enough to have heard it, her song will forever remain in our hearts.
Wendy Stark taught us more about being a good person than we realized, and one day, if we chance to meet her in heaven, we'll get to thank her. As for now, we can only remember and smile.

A t the same time, many of the consid- erations necessary to good membership selection involve fundamentals of good public relations.

That can be said of the more-than-a-dozen local summer festivals that will take place in the county this year. That includes the volunteers, some of whom undoubtedly are your friends, neighbors, work colleagues, fellow church parishioners or even relatives.
Many festivals offer live music played by local musicians. They feature great food and beverages from local restaurants. The money you spend at these festivals also stays local. And some proceeds go to support local social service agencies or other good causes.
Keep these local festivals in mind when planning your summer entertainment options. Support local by spending — both time and money — locally.

When referring to the phenomenal success of America, the truly knowledgeable American leaders have one thing in common — they all agree that what has made America great is the people.
The most notable leaders and their accomplishments are George Washington, being the father of our country and the general who won the Revolutionary War. Abraham Lincoln, who was responsible for the freeing of the slaves. He won the Civil War and kept America one nation. Franklin Roosevelt, the leader who mobilized American indus-. Ronald Reagan, who led us out of a serious recession. He also led us to a successful conclusion of the year Cold War with Russia. We the people have lost sight of the most fundamental cause of all, freedom.
We have been drifting from a Christian, God-fearing nation to a secular nation with a me-first culture. We apparently feel that the freedom provided us by our forebears will remain without constant protection. We must realize that giving up our freedoms even to our own elected officials for promised rewards is loss of freedom. Remember our God-given rights: Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

A lot of us had that feeling Memorial Day weekend as we filled our cars before taking a trip. Illinois has the fifth-highest state gasoline tax rates in the nation, according to the Tax Foundation. Cities around the state are able to tack on taxes of their own. In border regions of Illinois, folks are filling up their cars in neighboring states.
Because they think you are too dumb to know you are being taxed. But rarely do politicians accept part of the blame. In fact, they do their best to obscure their role in high gas prices. It all comes back to a prevailing arrogance of elected officials. They think they know how to spend your money better than you know how to spend your money. Think about that the next time you fill your car up with gas — or step into a voting booth. He can be reached at sreeder illinoispolicy.

Taylor was diagnosed with lupus in About 10 percent of people with lupus will have a relative with the disease, and about 5 percent of children born to individuals with lupus will develop the illness. There are several forms of lupus, including cutaneous, systemic, drug-induced, overlap syndrome and mixed connective tissue disease.
Inflammation and tissue damage to organ systems in the body usually occurs, including in the joints, kidneys, lungs, brain, blood, blood vessels and skin.

The Crystal Lake resident was diagnosed with lupus April 15, and started treatment with medication shortly after. Some believe there is a genetic predisposition to the dis-. Some hormonal factors also may explain why it occurs more frequently in women than men.
Each treatment plan depends on the severity of the illness, and routine checkups are key to stabilize the disease. Oftentimes, a patient will at some point need to consult a rheumatologist, who treats arthritis and other diseases of the joints. He said he hoped the new contract that started with the adjunct faculty in would help offset any lost supplemental income for those who worked long hours in other areas outside of teaching courses. He said the faculty received an 8 percent raise last year and will receive a 9 percent raise this year, though the bumps still only bring the adjunct faculty closer to the state average of their peers.
Ponzio said he was encouraged that the administration has listened to concerns and is willing to re-examine the multiple department issue. Even if it meant skimming back on the supplemental work, Ponzio said, most professors would want to continue their current routines and believed an agreement still could be reached with administration before August.
For nine long years, I lived in sheer agony. I suffered from inflammation and horrible stiffness in my hands. It nearly crippled me and almost ended my career. As a Medical Micropigmentation Specialist in Cleveland, Ohio, I need my hands for applying medical tattooing and permanent makeup for cancer patients, burn victims, and for people who need facial reconstruction. But suddenly, my career was in danger. So naturally, I tried just about every pain remedy and topical cream on the market.
Nothing worked. The pain was getting worse and worse. How is an ordinary fruit drink going to end my misery? He brought me a bottle and I took a sip. I was shocked that it actually tasted fruity and delicious. I really enjoyed drinking it. So for all these years, I got by on a steady regimen of over-the-counter pills. The pain in my hands got so bad that I started taking pain relievers times a day. And still my agony persisted. In just days, an amazing thing happened. I started to feel much better. My stiffness loosened up and I moved around better than I had in years with no pain.
I was faced with a dreadful choice: Either have the painful surgery on my hands and be laid up for months I was between a rock and a hard place. I was over joyed! Even the doctors I work with were amazed at my amazing improvement. I no longer need surgery. I am busier than ever before and I love it! I also found out that the betalains in Nopalea aid my body in healing by surrounding unhealthy cells and draining them of toxic waste.

Village officials and the developer of the proposed River Ridge Estates along North River Road have put together a draft annexation agreement.
Final terms of the agreement are subject to negotiation and need approval from the Village Board. Greg Pantos, the managing member of the AK Group, wants to build the River Ridge Estates subdivision with 25 custom single-family homes. The houses would be a minimum of 3, square feet for two-story homes, and 2, square feet for ranches. Message and data rates apply. At the time of his arrest. Swierk last was living at Ramble Road in McHenry, but he told Graham he would return to live with his wife and 6-year-old son in Brookfield if released on a lower bond. His next court date is June 6.
They would like a chance to meet with the new village president and village board.
Under the proposal, the Rimas Lodge property, a stretch of about acres at the northwest corner of Route and River Road and on both sides of River Road at Burnett Road in unincorporated McHenry County, would be developed with both single-family and multifamily residences, as well as commercial uses. Two hearings, one in late March and the second in early April, drew so many people that they had to meet in a big-. Opponents of the development pointed to overcrowding around nearby Griswold Lake and potential water issues, including flooding that could result from homes set on wetlands.
Charles Amrich, who was running for the village presidency at the time, came out against the development, saying the village needs to focus on filling existing, vacant storefronts and foreclosed homes. The McHenry firm agreed that A. State and environmental regulators are the ones who. Land can pursue its land-use changes, once the company decides to ramp up the development efforts, Boden said. Green put a perspective on it that there are legitimate concerns but not ones that are unresolvable.
Pantos has said he expects the project to take three to five years to build out, depending on how well the houses sell. A lot depends on the strength of the housing market, Pantos said, but the inventory of new homes is going down. The draft annexation agreement calls for River. Ridge and the planned Prairie Path subdivision, which is to the southeast, to be built at the same time. Having the projects constructed at the same time would allow River Ridge to connect to a planned water main for the Prairie Path subdivision.
If River Ridge proceeds before construction of Prairie Path, Pantos would agree to secure the proper easements and recapture agreements to run utilities through the Prairie Path subdivision and. Details of the plan would be worked out during the final engineering, according to the draft agreement.
The village also may want to extend an arterial water main through both River Ridge and Prairie Path, and that would be incorporated into the final design. Under the draft agreement, space between two lots will be made available for 10 years for the extension of River Drive. Pantos also is willing to donate 2.
