JSIS: College Football-- That Pesky Soda Tax-- Fall Color
JSIS-- Just Some Interesting Stuff
1. COLLEGE FOOTBALL-- This was a shocker when Oregon State football coach Gary Anderson left the school by mutual agreement after a 1-5 start and 4-17 overall record AND he gave up the $12 million he had coming to him. That is refreshing when a college football coach (most of whom are really OVERPAID) leaves money on the table. I didn't think that was possible.
2. THAT PESKY SODA TAX-- Cook County, Illinois, (which includes Chicago) has dropped it one cent an ounce tax on all drinks that are sweetened (even diet drinks) which was put in to make children healthier. We all knew the REAL reason was to make money for the county. Good Riddance. Now, let's work on those safety Photo Enforced stoplights which really scare me.
3. FALL COLOR-- A few trees around here in northeast Illinois are starting to change, but most have not. Looking forward to that color.
