Bruce Rauner's Troubling Past Puts His GOP Supporters in an Ugly Position
Huffington Post - about 3 years
The last two weeks have been tough on GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner and he has deserved every minute of it. After months of little-to-no scrutiny, Rauner's embarrassing flip-flop on the minimum wage opened a Pandora's box on questions about his ethics and character. A Pandora's box that included reports that Rauner clouted his daughter into Walter Payton Prep with a $750,000 contribution and questions about the $25,000 a month he was paying Blagojevich political fixer Stuart Levine. Rauner has not weathered the controversies well. He was caught in another flip-flop Friday, first admitting, then denying that he made the call to former CPS CEO Arne Duncan after his daughter was rejected from the prestigious selective admissions school. Rauner has also refused to answer any more questions whether his payments to Levine were a quid pro quo for his firm, GTCR, receiving contracts from the Teachers Retirement System. He has denied even knowing Levine - a fact that may alre ...

Remember This? New Kids On The Block's 'Tonight'
Moviefone Blog - over 4 years
"Remember This?" is a recurring feature on HuffPost Entertainment, resurrecting pop-cultural artifacts that haven't enjoyed the spotlight for quite some time. Today, Mike Ryan writes about "Tonight" by New Kids on the Block. If there's a topic you want us to cover, let us know in the comments. I never hated the New Kids on the Block as much as I was supposed to. I remember that the Top-40 radio station in Kansas City refused to play New Kids in an effort to appear hip. (As if snubbing the New Kids in favor of the still playing the musical stylings of Timmy T would accomplish such a thing.) The point is, even radio stations found it better for business to hate the New Kids than to embrace them. And even though I had no real opinion on the New Kids one way or another, it behooved me, as a high-school freshman, to openly hate the New Kids because it was cool to hate New Kids on the Block. And I wanted to be cool because, well, I was not cool. (I am still not cool.) I finally formed an ...

Aw! Aaron's internal monologue is surely saying: "Please don't go BOYS! I'm GLAD YOU CAME." BOY BAND WORLDS ARE COLLIDING! Bust out your very best silverware because THIS RIGHT HERE is what I call a boy band TRIFLE. Layers upon layers, racks on racks of my favorite boy banders from the '80s, '90s and TODAY (in the words of your favorite soft rock radio station) joined Aaron Carter to support him backstage after his performance in Broadway's "The Fantasticks."

Help catch culprit who beat and dumped cat
Fenland Citizen - almost 5 years
AN RSPCA inspector is appealing for information after a blind young cat, which could have been either kicked or beaten was then dumped in a recycling clothes bin in March. The cat, which was less than a year old, was found dumped in a clothing bank at the Tesco store in Hostmoor Avenue, March, on May 8. The black and white cat had a host of horrific injuries including a broken jaw, she was in poor body condition, was blind in both eyes and had severe neurological damage. She was found by a member of a public when the bin was being emptied; and there is no way the cat would have been able to get in there herself. The cat was taken to a vet for treatment and later transferred to the care of an RSPCA vet. But it was clear the cat had too many injuries and had to be put to sleep. RSPCA inspector Jon Knight said: “This was a particularly nasty and malicious incident and I clearly want to find the person responsible for this. “This cat had a host of life-threatening injuries, although ...

JC Chasez: An 'N Sync Reunion is "Just Not in the Cards"
US Magazine - almost 5 years
While the world is experiencing another wave of boy bands with One Direction and The Wanted, fans shouldn't hold their breath in hopes that one of the 90's hottest groups will make their return. "It's just not in the cards," JC Chasez, one of the original members of 'N Sync, told The Hollywood Reporter about the possibility of the quintet reuniting. "I'm sure that everybody in my group has been asked at one time or another -- I know I get asked, I know the other guys get asked -- but we're happy with what it was and we're happy to move on." PHOTOS: Hottest teen idols ever The Americas Best Dance Crew judge, 35, isn't the only "I Want You Back" crooner who has been reminiscing about the good old days.

Cream of the Crop: May
Walnut Creek Patch - almost 5 years
It’s May! The hills are green, the buds have budded/burst/blossomed, Easter’s over and summer vacation is rising like a phoenix on the horizon. It’s time to catch a flotilla of dance performances, symphony season wrap-ups, and select theatrical and visual art extravaganzas. I took a peek at April’s column and thought the chronological mashup was messy, so this month, we’re trying categories. Pick one from each genre or be a one-track-only theater couch potato and gorge on your favorite art form. Either way, shut down the laptop, turn off your cell (unless you’re a tweeter for Diablo Ballet!) and ride the night-out wave with this month’s Cream of the Crop: Dance Diablo Ballet at Shadelands Arts Center Auditorium Friday, May 4, at 7:30 pm, and Saturday, May 5, at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Diablo Ballet is first out of the gates with George Balanchine’s Tarantella, a devilishly difficult pas de deux that threatens to exalt the dancers—if it doesn’t kill them first!

First Congregational Church to Install Pastor
Downers Grove Patch - almost 5 years
From First Congregational United Church: A celebration is planned at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 22 at First Congregational United Church of Christ in Downers Grove as the Rev. Scott Oberle is formally installed as pastor. Oberle began his ministry in February, but an installation service provides a covenant between a pastor, the congregation and the Fox Valley Association of the United Church of Christ. As part of the service, three trees will be planted outside the church to signify that “growing together.” In his brief time in Downers Grove, Oberle has created an ecumenical running group which meets Saturday mornings for a brief devotion and then a run or power walk. Runs have begun from the church, 1047 Curtiss St., and from Blackwell Forest Preserve. The morning of his installation, Oberle and the growing group, currently about five regulars who run and power walk, will participate in the 10K at Morton Arboretum. Oberle has also become active in the mission minist ...
