Tuesday, August 6th 2013
11:00 am - 4:00 pm


Business and civic leaders from throughout the Sangamon County area will be “arrested” and put “behind bars” for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Lock-Up fundraiser on August 6th, 2013 from 11am-4pm at Scheels Sporting Goods.

Accused of having big hearts and being heavily armed with kindness, the “jailbirds” volunteered to be part of MDA’s Lock-Up in order to raise “bail” by encouraging friends, family, co-workers and business contacts to make contributions to MDA that will directly benefit families in greater Sangamon County living with progressive muscle diseases.

For more information about MDA’s Lock-Up campaign, please contact Mitch Davis at 217-351-1853 or

Rauner Issues Pardons

Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate businessman Bruce Rauner participates in a Republican gubernatorial candidate debate Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The four Republican gubernatorial candidates said that they’ll be willing to work with unions if elected but differed on how to approach the relationship during a downstate debate that largely focused on pension reform, taxes and just briefly on personal issues that have dogged some of the candidates.

Rauner granted 10 and denied 200 clemency petitions.
