No more paper savings bonds?

September 14, 2011

Beginning Jan. 1, walking into a bank and purchasing a paper savings bond will be a thing of the past. The new year will usher in a new way of handling savings bonds — the financial practice that began in 1935 is moving completely online.

Public affairs specialist Lateefah Thompson, from the Bureau of Public Debt, said that online savings bonds have been offered as an option since 2002. The difference now is that online will be the only option.

This is a continuation of the “go green” initiative that the federal government began implementing in April.

Part 2 of 5: Who pays? Finding the funds for every student

September 14, 2011

At $1,199 (the retail price for a MacBook), these computers don’t come cheap. A question in many people’s minds might be, where are schools getting the money to pay for these things?
Schools are relying on their usual budget, along with revenue from rental fees, to pay a lease for the devices from Apple. At the end of the four-year lease agreement, schools can either keep the computers or sell them back to Apple.

70-year-old follows U.S. 30 to 9/11 crash sites

September 14, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Many adults are advised to regularly walk in order to stay active. Retired Chicago police officer Phil Szpicki (pronounced spy-key), at 70 years old, recently embarked on a journey that requires him to walk more than 900 miles — all along U.S. Highway 30.

“Being able to do this at my age is a gift from God,” said Phil Szpicki, covered in sweat and grime from the road.

Szpicki, who resides in Loves Park, Ill, spent the night in Plymouth Monday before setting off again on his journey.

September 14, 2011

LAKEVILLE — Freshman forward Allie Wright scored the game-winner with under four minutes on the clock, and the Lady Pilgrims earned their second win of the season with a 3-2 victory over LaVille Tuesday at Newton Park.
Wright drove a roller toward the far post and past LaVille’s Abbie McBride as Rachael Principe found Maggie Mahler on a cross into the box, and Mahler’s forward pass split a pair of LaVille defenders to find Wright for the golden goal.

Aguilar helps Rockies draw with Eagles in 1st start

September 14, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth back-up goalie Erik Aguilar gave his team a boost, and the Rockies played sectional rival Culver Military Academy to a 0-0 draw at home Tuesday.
“(It was) a pretty fast-paced and very physical game,” said Plymouth head boys soccer coach Josh Martin. “CMA played some very clever counter attacking soccer, but when we man-marked Luther Jacobs we were able to disrupt a lot of their offensive build-up in the second half.“
