From Sen. Bill Brady

[JAN. 23, 2004]  Students who will be attending state universities in Illinois may submit applications for the General Assembly Scholarship program to my office through March 19.

Students whose permanent addresses lie within the 44th District are eligible. Eight one-year tuition waivers, for fall 2004 and spring 2005, are available to students who will be attending state universities, with one specifically designated for a nursing student attending Illinois State University. Eight scholarships for summer 2005 will be available for teachers who are continuing their education at a state-funded school.

A panel of community and education leaders will evaluate applications and select scholarship recipients. I will not be involved in the decision-making process.

Requests for applications must be sent in letter form to my office and should include the student's home and school address and phone number. The office address is 2203 Eastland Drive, Suite 3, Bloomington, IL 61704.

General Assembly scholarships are presented by all Illinois lawmakers to college students across the state. Selection is based upon merit of the applicants.

Life Sentence, No Parole

If we tried to invent the cruelest punishment for dogs, we probably couldn't come up with anything worse than "solitary confinement" on a chain or in a kennel.

Dogs are pack animals who crave the companionship of others.  Scratches behind the ears, games of fetch, or even just walks around the block mean the world to them.  Curling up at your feet while you watch TV is their idea of heaven.

Many dogs left to fend for themselves at the end of a chain fall prey to attacks by other animals or cruel people, and many others are injured or hanged or choke as a result of getting entangled or caught in their tether.

If you have a backyard dog, please, bring him or her inside.  They don't want much--just you.
