    1. I hope this gets to you. I live in the Rockford area and have written 5 articles in the Rockford Register Star. I suppose you could look at them through google or archives. I am tired of misleading articles in the rrstar by Scott Reeder along with the fact that the rrstar continually quotes the Illinois Policy Institute false study info., etc. I went through the hassle of finding out that the IPI has a 501(c)(3) IRS Public charity exemption. The rule says that they are to educate the public about policy, but cannot bias there reports for or against a political candidate or group of candidates or they will lose there 501(c)(3) status. Their number with IRS is EIN 41-2057028 if you want to look them up. You and I Know their agenda and the fact that they have no problem misleading the public instead of educating the public for the common good. The restriction of political campaign intervention by section 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations states in part “On the other hand, voter education or registration activities with evidence of bias that (a) would favor one candidate over another;(b)oppose a candidate in some manner; or (c) have the effect of favoring a candidate or GROUP of candidates, will constitute prohibited participation or intervention” Then I find on their website Illinois Policy,— Just quickly paraphrase– rather many expect he (Quinn) and DEMOCRATIC (group) leaders in the Gen. Assbly. to make temp tax perm or pass grad tax.–most everyone wonders if gov. spent too much time in states where pot is legal–Then finally–Thank the heavens that it’s an election year. If things are going to change around here, it’s up to voters to make it happen. AGAIN–you are more involved than me, I have been writing articles in MY VIEW of rrstar trying to educate people about the fake “think tanks” info that the rrstar refers to as legitimate. I would love to send some kind of proof to the IRS that would revoke their 503(c)(3) status. What do you think? –Carl Benassi– Retired teacher–30 years

  1. Fred, there is a wonderful article in byline of Phil Kadner in today’s Southtown Star (8/29/14) that is about Common Core that your readers would enjoy. Is there any way you can share Phil’s column?
