Rauner Signs Police Pension Bill
This morning Governor Bruce Rauner was in town to sign House Bill 418 into law, which prohibits retired police officers to “double dip” with pensions. Sponsored by State Representative Grant Wehrli and State Senator Michael Connelly, the bill means that if an officer retires from one active duty job, and then starts another with a different pension, they cannot keep both. This all came about after a 2012 dispute regarding the pension plan of Naperville Police Chief Bob Marshall, who retired from the force and returned several years later for his current job; however his pension will not be affected.
The Naperville Police Department is looking for the subjects in these photos, who allegedly used a stolen credit card on August 3 to make purchases at the Target store on Jefferson Avenue and Route 59. The two were seen driving a red Ford Explorer or Mercury Mountaineer. Naperville Crime Stoppers are offering up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

NCC First in Illinois
In addition to being ranked number seven in the preseason Division III rankings, the North Central College Football team received a unique distinction this week. The website herosports.com has selected North Central as the best college football program in the State of Illinois. The rating system disregards school size and divisions, focusing on winning percentage, conference titles and post season success. Beating out programs like the University of Illinois, Northwestern, Wheaton, and Northern Illinois, NCC earned the honor thanks to a 53 and 8 record and three conference championships over the last five years. This marks the second consecutive year that the Cardinals have been named the state’s best by Hero Sports.
