Today is Thursday, July 2, the 183rd day of 2009. There are 182 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:

Ten years ago: Former Northwestern University basketball coach Ricky Byrdsong was shot to death in Skokie, Ill.; authorities believe he was the victim of a three-day shooting rampage by white supremacist Benjamin Nathaniel Smith that targeted minorities in Illinois and Indiana.

Watercooler Talk
LAKEMOOR, Ill. (AP) — The planters in her front yard brought Tina Asmus national publicity last month. This week, they brought her a $25 fine. Asmus said Tuesday she will go to court to fight to keep her lawn ornaments, which are made from two old toilets and a bathroom sink.

Lakemoor Police Chief Rick Iverson said Asmus was issued the $25 noncompliance ticket Monday after a 30-day warning ticket expired.

Ivarson said the village is not singling Asmus out, since it has issued about 100 notices of violation of the same ordinance, and the majority of those cited have complied.

The ordinance violations cited by police range from grass that is too long to junk in front yards.
