Local Dems Unified for Event
Local Democrats are coming together in Worth Township to sponsor an event or workshop for residents. The event is sponsored by three heavy weight Democrats in Worth Township and two additional Democrats that represent part of Worth Township.
Cook County Recorder of Deeds, Ed Moody, who used to be a County Commissioner in the district now occupied by Donna Miller is leading the way. Donna Miller who defeated Patricia Joan Murphy for County Commissioner after Moody resigned the spot, will also be at the event. Not to be outdone, Murphy who lost to Miller but defeated John O’Sullivan for Democratic Committeeman is also attending. O’Sullivan, who supported a candidate against Miller and Murphy, is also taking part in the event. The last official involved is John Daley, who apparently hasn’t run against any of the other individuals and has no current battle scars to overcome for the event.
The group is certainly powerful politically if they can stand to work with each other.
Hoosiers Happy With Marist Grad
Oak Lawn’s own Gavin McCabe, a 6’4″ Defensive Lineman weighing in at 280 pounds has the Indiana Hoosiers salivating at the thought of the former first team all-state and East Suburban Catholic Conference Defensive MVP lacing up the spikes.
The Indiana Hoosiers will battle the Ball State Cardinals at Lucas Oil Stadium to kick-off the 2019 season and their quest to return to a bowl game. McCabe was a team captain at Marist and finished his career with 136 tackles and 14 sacks. McCabe had offers from Arkansas, Purdue, Illinois and Iowa State but he chose to head to Bloomington to be a Hoosier.
He told the Hoosier Huddle that the choice was made with input from his parents and coaches. “Honestly, it came down to my chance to play in the Big Ten for a great school and program at Indiana,” McCabe said after signing with Indiana. “It was really hard to sort out all of my options and offers but I had a lot of help and good advice along the way from my parents and coaches.”
Layoffs at Oak Lawn Plant
According to a monthly report from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, Wynright Corp., a manufacturer of conveyors and robotics, warned the state in June that it planned to lay off more than 250 employees.
The company has a conveyor plant in Oak Lawn. Wynright is closing its Oak Lawn facility and will begin layoffs by the end of August, according to the state report. Five other businesses warned the state in June of more than 700 layoffs. None of the other companies had operations in Oak Lawn.
