Flynn probably broke law by failing to disclose foreign income, House Oversight leaders say

Author: Editor

The lead Democrat and Republican on the House Oversight Committee meted out a rare bipartisan rebuke of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn on Tuesday after seeing private information that confirmed the former administration official failed to disclose foreign income from Russia and Turkey.

The public criticism by the senior Republican on the House’s chief investigative panel is unusual and presents a dilemma for the White House, which was accused of failing to provide everything the committee asked for — an assertion White House press secretary Sean Spicer disputed.

Will County Sheriff's Office's opioid-related efforts have saved many lives

Author: Editor

The Will County Sheriff’s Office, like many other police agencies, is spending money to save lives while fighting the county’s opioid epidemic.

Will County Sheriff Mike Kelley and Deputy Jeff Jerz gave the Will County Board Public Health & Safety Committee an update on the sheriff’s office’s opioid-related programs Thursday.

Jerz, the county’s 2016 Deputy of the Year, gave a presentation on Narcan, the opioid antidote that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose if administered in time. Kelley said Jerz has been instrumental in training officers on how to use Narcan, adding that he’ll probably give out 12 to 15 life-saving awards soon because of lives saved in relation to Jerz’s training.
